  This month = The Razor Scripting Language & DotNetNuke. 05:30-6:00pm Food and social +6:00-7:30pm Program "Razor is a code-first scripting language that is most widely known, and used, as a view engine for ASP.NET MVC. However, the Razor scripting engine can also be hosted outside of its traditional context in ASP.NET MVC, and the DotNetNuke project has done just that. Incorporated into the newest versions of the open source framework, the Razor Host module allows a developer to utilize the power of the Razor scripting language to build DotNetNuke modules. This presentation will provide an introduction to Razor, the DNN host module, and demo a geolocation module that integrates with DotNetNuke's user profile to plot the location of a portal's users on a map." Important meeting logistics info! When you get to the 11th floor, please go to the main conference room. All STLNET UG & DNNUG members will be eating and socializing together and will split up into separate meetings after the meeting introductions are done just before 6:00pm.

	 Description Crown Room at the Schlafly Bottleworks

	 This is a free event, but seating is limited and there are no reservations. We meet on the last Wednesday of the month during the academic year, usually from 7:00 - 8:30 PM..

	 This month= For much of human history, plant extracts have been used as ingredients in potions and poisons.  In the eastern Mediterranean, use of the latex of the opium poppy (Papaver somniferum) can be traced back at least to 1400 to 1200 B.C.  The Sarpagandha root (Rauwolfia serpentina) has been used in India since approximately 1000 B.C. 
	 Ancient people used medicinal plant extracts as purgatives, antitussives, sedatives, and treatments for a wide range of ailments, including snakebite, fever and insanity.  As the use of medicinal plants spread westward across Arabia and Europe, new infusions and decoctions played a role in famous events.  During his execution in 399 B.C., the philosopher Socrates drank an extract of coniine-containing hemlock (Conium maculatum).  In the last century B.C., Queen Cleopatra used extracts of henbane (Hyoscyamus), which contains atropine, to dilate her pupils and appear more alluring to her male political rivals. 
	 Today, 25% of our medicines still come either directly from plants or are modified plant chemicals and only 10% of plant species have been studied with respect to their chemical constituents!
