Notre Dame Professor to Speak About the Future of Rechargeable Batteries

poster

On Wednesday, November 16, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. Muskegon Community College (MCC) will host a free, public lecture regarding the role of batteries in vehicles and our renewable energy future. Associate Professor Dr. Jennifer Schaefer from the University of Notre Dame will present “Advanced Rechargeable Batteries for Energy Storage” in Room 1300 at the MCC Stevenson Center located at 221 South Quarterline Road in Muskegon. 

Schaefer is an expert in renewable energy from the Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering and also serves as the Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Notre Dame University. She will provide an overview of the role of batteries in a renewable energy future, the material chemistry of current commercialized Li-ion batteries, and the design considerations for future generation battery design to meet our global energy needs. 

While the cost of the generation of renewable electricity has plummeted, storage and use of that electricity at a large scale presents substantial technical challenges. Rechargeable batteries are believed to be a scalable solution for the storage of intermittently generated electricity (from solar or wind) that cannot be immediately used. Rechargeable batteries are also a means for vehicle electrification to reduce our dependence on liquid fuels for transportation.  

Dr. Andrew Wible, director of the MCC lecture series said, “From automobiles to solar panels, we need good batteries. I am fascinated to find out what the future of battery technology holds and invite others to join us!” 

Muskegon Community College offers 54 associate degree programs and 32 certificate programs in Muskegon, Newaygo, and Ottawa counties. Located on a 100-acre scenic campus, MCC is consistently recognized as one of the top community colleges in the state of Michigan.

Hackley Library’s West Michigan Voices: Zine Collection is a way for you get to your voice heard!  This interactive, community collection aims to be a creative outlet for adults 18 and older living in West Michigan (this includes outside of Muskegon County as well), and also aims to be an amplifier for marginalized voices in our communities.
This special collection will consist of submitted zines from adults, and will be available for patrons to read while in Hackley Library.
What is a zine you ask?  Zines are very easy to make, and are often in the form of a simple booklet.  They can be as easy as taking regular copy/printer paper, folding it, and stapling or taping it together.  The content of a zine can be almost anything!  A zine can share your stories, showcase your art, display your photography, show your poetry, share a family history, exhibit your comics, etc. Really anything that the creator wants to say!
Thanks to a grant from the American Rescue Plan, HPL was able to purchase a scanner, which means we will be able to scan each accepted submission and store them digitally in our local history collection, so they can be read anywhere in the world. This means that, even when the physical copy wears out, there will always be a digital copy of their work available. The digital copies will act as a time capsule, reflecting the lives of people in West Michigan – their thoughts, feelings, and creativity. 
We are currently in the phase of accepting zine submissions (we will officially launch the collection in October 2022). The more people who choose to submit zines, the more diverse and healthier our collection will be to unveil in October.
For more details on our zine collection, and to find the submission guidelines/form, visit our Zines page at hackleylibrary.org (hover over the Local History & Genealogy tab).

Rebel Road, Michigan’s largest motorcycle rally, will be returning to Downtown Muskegon from Wednesday, July 13, to Sunday, July 17.

rebelroad

Rebel Road is organized by a small team of volunteers to raise money for the Child Abuse Council of Muskegon County. The event serves as the agency’s largest fundraiser and helps raise the money needed for the agency to provide abuse education and preventative services to thousands of Muskegon County children.

“The money raised during Rebel Road is crucial in our fight against child abuse in Muskegon County,” said Kyleen Gee, executive director of the Child Abuse Council of Muskegon County. “We are forever grateful for our volunteers, sponsors, vendors and everyone who helps us provide these services by attending Rebel Road.”

This year is set to be Rebel Road’s largest event ever with the event returning to its home on Western Avenue in Downtown Muskegon following a change to the state’s social district laws.

“We are excited to be back on Western Avenue,” said Gee. “This event helps support so many in our community, so it just makes sense that it happens in the heart of Downtown Muskegon.”

Rebel Road 2022 will include five nights of free concerts, motorcycle stunt shows, live professional wrestling, axe throwing, a free kids entertainment area, camping, cash raffle, contests, dozens of vendors, thousands of bikes and more.

Headlining the Rebel Road Miller Lite Main Stage will be Project 90 on Wednesday, July 13, Lines of Loyalty on Thursday, Las Vegas rockers Otherwise on Friday, fan favorites Wayland on Saturday, and Better Desire closing out the event on Sunday, July 17.

“This is our biggest vendor and entertainment lineup ever,” said Gee. “There will be something for everyone happening on Rebel Road in 2022.”

Rebel Road 2022 will also feature a new addition to its beverage and entertainment areas with Muskegon’s own Wonderland Distilling Co. joining the festival and releasing Rebel Road Reserve, a specially blended American whiskey. Rebel Road Reserve can be found at select retailers across West Michigan and will be available at official Rebel Road beverage and entertainment areas during the event. 

“We wouldn’t be able to put on this event without our sponsors, including our major sponsors Miller Lite and Michigan Biker Law,” said Gee. “Their generosity shows these companies truly support the work of the Child Abuse Council.”

Sponsors include Miller Lite/Twisted Tea, Michigan Biker Law, Wonderland Distilling Co., Community Choice Credit Union, New Standard Cannabis, Pure Options Precision Crafted Cannabis, Baker College, Parkland Properties, Delta Hotels by Marriott Muskegon Convention Center, Walker’s – An American Brasserie, The Mart Dock, Belasco Electric, Unruly Brewing, and Bikers Info USA.
