Now Your car can run in air

An English inventor, Peter Dearman has claimsed to create ‘green’ air-powered vehicle.. he modified his run-down jalopy - a 25-year-old Vauxhall Nova - to run on nothing but air. It won't produce any emissions because it uses only air Dearman's propulsion system operates similarly to a steam engine, except he uses very cold liquid air. He said he chose liquid air as a fuel source because it’s light and cheap. He turns on his car by connecting two wires. At around -390 degree Fahrenheit, air turns into a liquid that can be stored in insulated, vacuum-sealed containers. Dearman uses a beer keg as a makeshift container for the liquid air. Drawing from the principles of a steam engine, the inventor believes his air mobile could be used as a renewable resource and break the auto industry’s gas dependency. it can drive for about three miles and reach speeds of up to 30 miles per hour.

Lesson One: Be Observant!

Just a little safety lesson A professor is giving the first year medical students their first lecture on autopsies, and decides to give them a few basics before starting. "You must be capable of two things to do an autopsy. The first thing is that you must have no sense of fear." At this point, the lecturer sticks his finger into the dead man's anus, pulls it out, and then licks it. He asks all the students to do the same thing with the corpses in front of them. After a couple of minutes' silence, they follow through with his disgusting command. "The second thing is that you must have an acute sense of observation: How many of you noticed that I stuck my middle finger into the corpse's anus, but I licked my index finger?  keep working safely and be observant !!!!!

GAMA 2013 AND YOUTH PROFESSIONAL FORUM : DEVELOPMENT OF OUR YOUTHS

In the past couple of years FIDIC worked assiduously to encourage development of its Young Professional network. This is in recognition of the role the youths (our future leaders) will play in the development of engineering in the very near future. FIDIC and GAMA have notified us of their interest to invest and develop the youths in our region. They have consequently decided to call on its African member firms to participate in this course.

FLOOD MENACE IN NIGERIA: PLATEAU STATE FLOOD DISASTER

 [REPORT BY ENGR OKEY EZEMA [MNSE, MNICE] NICE, JOS CORRESSPONDENT As the rainy season draws near, we should have a retrospect to help us evaluate the level of destruction of lives and properties by flood in 2012 to enable us prepare for what lies ahead. The year 2012 cannot be forgotten quickly in Nigeria especially with respect to flood disaster. From Kano to Adamawa,Taraba to Kaduna,Kogi to Anambra ,Lagos to Cross River, the story of flood disaster and its attendant destruction of lives and properties is the same. The Lokoja -Abuja road which accounts for about 70% of traffic between northern and southern Nigeria was reported submerged for days trapping travelers. Even the Benin/Asaba road and river Niger Bridge are being threatened by flood. Many Nigerians have lost their homes and valuable properties to this flood menace. More than 76,000 victims of the devastating floods that hit about 200 communities in five local government areas of Anambra State were evacuated fro

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT NSE & COREN? FOR THE YOUNG, UPCOMING & INTENDING ENGINEERS.

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN COREN AND NIGERIAN SOCIETY OF ENGNEERS The two are separate and different bodies so that they cannot be referred to interchangeably. The Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) is a voluntary association established by the practitioners of the profession while the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN) is a statutory organ of Federal Government, established by decree and concerned with certificate of persons for the purpose of practicing the engineering profession in Nigeria. COREN being the regulatory body for the engineering family in Nigeria, it is therefore necessary to have relevant portions of relevant COREN publications reproduced to serve for both emphasis and as information to all.

Young African Invented Cardiopad

24-year-old Arthur Zang, a Cameroonian engineer, invented the Cardiopad. The Cardiopad is a portable, touch screen device that enables heart examinations such as the electrocardiogram to be performed at remote locations while results of the test, are transferred wirelessly to specialists who can interpret them. How does it work? Firstly, the CardioPad like the electrocardiogram allows examination. "The goal of this functionality is to acquire the signal that comes from the heart patient. The signal has to be scanned, processed, displayed and printed as an examination report" explains Arthur Zang. This report shall be transmitted by GSM to a cardiologist located in a different city. The Cardiopad also provides elements for the diagnosis by extracting the necessary information to present to the cardiologist. Finally, all information related to the examination are stored in the shelf and can be reused later. The CardioPad has other advantages. According to its creator,

Days in the Life of Civil Engineers

The only constant in the professional lives of civil engineers is that they never have typical days. Every day is different, bringing new challenges and unique demands, and the nature of these demands varies according to the specialization and seniority of the engineer. On the other hand, most report they work in teams, the spend time on things not necessarily well described in their titles, they concern themselves with continuing education and their networking part of the time, and women and minorities report a better environment than may once have been the norm in engineering. Virtually all engineers spend some part of every day doing some routine administrative tasks, and newly-graduated engineers may be surprised to find they will most likely file, type, send e-mail, make phone calls, take notes in meetings, and many other ordinary chores. Teams and Co-workers Almost all jobs in civil engineering require some sort of interaction with co-workers. Whether they are working
