In secret, behind locked gates, our Nation's Oldest City dumped a landfill in a lake (Old City Reservoir), while emitting sewage in our rivers and salt marsh. Organized citizens exposed and defeated pollution, racism and cronyism. We elected a new Mayor. We're transforming our City -- advanced citizenship. Ask questions. Make disclosures. Demand answers. Be involved. Expect democracy. Report and expose corruption. Smile! Help enact a St. Augustine National Park and Seashore. We shall overcome!

Who is MICHAEL REID, Ph.D., UF Professor of Applied Physiology & Kinesiology and Dean of the College of Health & Human Performance, leader of one-sided, unscholarly, quick and dirty UF "Opinion Paper" on DOW PUD?
Dr. Michael B. Reid is Professor of Applied Physiology & Kinesiology and Dean of the College of Health & Human Performance, a position he recently accepted after serving as chair of the Department of Physiology and vice dean of the College of Medicine at the University of Kentucky. Dr. Reid is an established investigator whose research addresses the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie muscle weakness and fatigue. His research team was the first to demonstrate that skeletal muscle produces reactive oxygen species, the first to identify nitric oxide as an endogenous modulator of muscle contraction, and the first to demonstrate that oxidative stress plays a causal role in human muscle fatigue. He has maintained an unbroken record of NIH funding for over a quarter century and has published over 120 scientific articles.
As an educator, Dr. Reid has taught numerous courses at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels. He has been thesis advisor or primary mentor for 28 pre- and post-doctoral trainees, many of whom are now pursuing successful academic careers, and he directed separate NIH-funded training programs at two prior institutions. Among his professional activities, Dr. Reid has chaired two standing NIH study sections, was a founding investigator in NASA’s National Space Biomedical Research Institute, was associate editor of Physiological Reviews, and served on the board of directors of the American Thoracic Society. He currently is a consulting editor for Journal of Applied Physiology and sits on the editorial boards of Antioxidants and Redox Signaling and Skeletal Muscle.
