On the internet, the Mayor has been reading about Bisphenol A on the advice of the scientific advisory board with an eye on policy and regulatory issues at http://www.epa.gov/oppt/existingchemicals/pubs/actionplans/bpa.html.  The mayor is looking at the tax abatement incentives other cities are offering at http://www.houstontx.gov/ecodev/abatements.html, http://www.indy.gov/eGov/City/DMD/ED/New_Expanding/Tax_Abatement/Pages/home.aspx, and https://www.stlouis-mo.gov/government/departments/sldc/economic-development/financing/real-estate-tax-abatement.cfm, among others.  What the mayor knows about nanotechnology came from http://nano.gov/

Professor Brown has been reading articles in the peer-reviewed academic literature, as listed above (e.g. Artiaga et al 2015, Handford et al 2014, Walser et al 2011, Kumar et al 2014, Echegoyen and Nerin 2013), and others:

Note to InstructorsIf the Nanosilver Linings role play experience is being incorporated into a course rather than as a stand-alone workshop, additional readings approaching the topic of nanosilver in food packaging from around the product life cycle may benefit student learning.  Suggestions for life cycle stage-based readings are included below.
