Munkith Al-Najjar, new CEO of Sci-Port
Times reporter Margaret Martin profiled him January 2. If you missed the story, look lively. Gannett only allows the Times to keep articles in the open archives for 7 days.
One thing the Times didn't cover is his actual name. He is Munkith Al-Najjar. While he is routinely called "Al," he says Munkith means "savior" and Al - Najjar means "the - carpenter." This may sound very Christian but it is not, he added.
As exciting as Sci-Port is, I believe the web site deserves an overhaul. Their "Current Discoveries" publication, though, is a riot and includes a useful calendar.
