Tonight: Talk on unconventional uses for magnetism

 

A magnet is fun as a toy and essential for navigation, but are there uses for magnetism beyond the conventional?

Magnetism figures in finding oil, predicting earthquakes, mass extinction and possibly Alzheimer's disease, according to geophysicist and Portola Valley resident Sheldon Breiner.

Mr. Breiner, who has enjoyed the use of a magnetometer for some 50 years, will give examples of the unconventional uses for magnetism in a free talk on this topic tonight (Wednesday, Jan. 13) at 7:30 p.m. in the Portola Valley Community Hall at 765 Portola Road.
