2 years of Lutheran school, 4 years of Jesuit school....
This has nothing to do with the whole religion thing that you're talking about, but I deciding what college to go to in the fall, and one of the picks is a school founded by the Jesuits (Canisius). I was wondering if you'd mind sharing any thoughts/opinions etc., on the school that you went to. I'm not particularly religious, but I am familiar with the very high opinion many people have of Jesuit schools. My mother (a teacher) does think that I'd do well in such a setting.

Your thoughts?

Nanowerk Spotlight reports they were using lead compounds which generated lead sulfide (PbS) nanocrystals with a diameter of only 5 nanometers. At a moment where many people wonder if the use of nanoparticles is safe, it's good to know that nanotechnology has been widely used for a very long time."
