Hanby PetroAnalysis Brown Bag Lunch & Lecture
The Petroleum Museum – Speaker: Charles Fator Hanby PetroAnalysis has created a quick and easy way to identify the unique aromatic components of an oil sample using Chemical Reaction Spectrophotometry, giving each oil well a “spectral fingerprint”. This technology could eliminate oil theft by providing tracking and regulation of assets and allow wells controlled by extremist groups to be identified, eliminating the sale of oil to fund terrorist groups. Join us to learn more about this fascinating technology. Tuesday, November 21 11:30 am - 12:30 pm FREE admission Tea and dessert provided Permian Basin Petroleum Museum 432-683-4403 www.pbpetro.org An after-work social hour and presentation with more in-depth information will be hosted at the Petroleum Museum by Hanby PetroAnalysis from 6 to 8 pm.

In 2014, Felipe launched a podcast entitled, “What’s Up Fool?” podcast on the All Things Comedy network started by Bill Burr and Al Madrigal. In its first week, it entered the top 15 comedy podcasts and the top 70 podcasts in all categories. It quickly became a fan favorite with a strong, loyal following. It is available on iTunes, Stitcher and SoundCloud/ Felipe’s other television appearances include a national Honda campaign, a national Target commercial, The Eric Andre Show, regular segments on TruTV’s “World’s Dumbest…”, “The Arsenio Hall Show”, “Comics Unleashed”, Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend”, and “Russell Simmons Presents: Stand-Up at the El Rey”, Showtime’s “Comics Without Borders”, TBS’s “Lopez Tonight”, and Galavision’s first English-speaking show, a stand-up comedy show called “Que Locos” (which spurred the careers of both George Lopez and Gabriel Iglesias).
