The merchants of Fourth Street N are having their first sidewalk sale. Jon LaBudde, whose Reno Beach Surf Shop has been on Fourth Street for 20 years, has been pushing the idea for 10 years. This year he persuaded more than 50 businesses to participate. Stores from Fifth Avenue N to 83rd Avenue N will have wares on the sidewalk from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. LaBudde and others also created a Web site, 4thstreetsale.com. Interest has "snowballed," LaBudde said, so now he's also planning a holiday sale for Nov. 24, which he plans to call "Christmas on 4th street."
Filtration system wins research deal
World Energy Solutions has signed a research agreement with the University of Florida for the commercialization of the company's recently acquired Pure Air filtration system. Early prototypes of the Pure Air technology have shown to remove 99.9 percent of biological and chemical contaminants in air, as well as filtering dust and smoke particles.
Company turns eye to Canadian market
Intelligent Micro Patterning is looking to influence the Canadian high-tech market after its first sale there, sending one of the company's maskless photolithography units to the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Windsor, Ontario. The system uses technology spun off from the University of South Florida to project master images onto materials like quartz, ceramics and plastics to efficiently test and develop new technology products. The company's Web site is intelligentmp.com.
