Every pilot knows that the most important part of any flight is the pre-flight inspection. If you are going to cruise at high speeds thousands of feet in the air you want to make sure that your aircraft is indeed airworthy and will not fall apart. If it does, you cannot simply pull over and call AAA and it is a long way down.
It is hard to inspect all parts of the aircraft, for instance the engine compartment,… Continue

No one can deny that one of the most problematic issues or pieces of equipment for Modern Day Trucks are the tires. In fact something really needs to be done. All too often the Truckers suffer from breakdowns due to blow outs, stuck on the side of the road for hours - sometimes in very dangerous places too.
"One major problem with trucks are the tires!"
Indeed this was one of the opening statements… Continue

When I was young the juvenile delinquents at our school would take baseball bats and their cars and go mail box smashing. Interestingly, enough our more intelligent neighbors got sick and tired of replacing their mailboxes and thus, would make them into brick fortresses. As I grew up, I noticed that this still goes on today and my parents said that the same thing happened when they were kids.
Of course,… Continue

As I pack up to leave Salt Lake City and the 237th American Chemical Society meeting, I wanted to reflect on some of the comments about the future of nanotechnology and nanoeducation.
From the education sessions, it seems clear that K-12 teachers are taking bits and pieces of activities that have been developed through NNI funding. It has to "fit" into their curriculum and that means that it is only adapted if the teachers find it easy to use and it supports and augments the content… Continue
