A powerpoint exported from my Keynote if you want to view this in more of a slideshow like setting. It may look weird as I haven't looked at it in PowerPoint and not all of the features may have exported properly. If you have Apple Keynote and want a file of my original presentation please email brianjosephking@gmail.com.

Thank you.
