Effects of Impurities on CO2 Geological Storage
Zhiyu Wang
As a means of mitigating global warming, carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) is considered a potential method to reduce CO2 emissions to the atmosphere. CO2 captured from a power platform always contains impurities and purification would drastically increase the cost of capture. Consequently co-capture and co-injection of these impurities with CO2 have been considered in recent studies. This project studied the effect of impurities on the CCS chain using both experimental and theoretical simulation.

Model-based Engineering of Metabolism
Radhakrishnan Mahadevan
Bioprocess development for biofuels and biochemicals typically requires several rounds of metabolic engineering to meet process targets including product yield, titer and productivity, all of which impact the process economics. Recent advances in experimental and computational technologies have enabled the detailed characterization of biological systems. Similar advances in computational modeling techniques have allowed the development of genome-scale models of metabolism in several organisms. In this talk, the use of such models for metabolic engineering will be presented.

Want to make a lot of money? Here are the university majors for you
Financial Post
If your biggest motivation to earn a bachelor's degree is to pump up your earning power, the data overwhelmingly suggest you major in one field: Engineering. Georgetown University's Center on Education and the Workforce analyzed Census Bureau data to determine the average wages for 137 college majors in the United States. While the salaries are different in Canada, the study serves as a useful benchmark for determining the comparative market value of various careers.

Where the jobs are (and aren't) may just surprise you
Inc.
It's an accepted and well-circulated meme that small businesses are the drivers of economic growth, creating most of the jobs that keep the nation humming. Confirming the trope, nearly every politician since Ronald Reagan has paid lip service to the idea that entrepreneurship is the bedrock of the American Dream.

5 resume tips to help you land the job you want
Yahoo! News
Put links to your professional website or Linkedin page up high. Make sure they're hyperlinked, too, for easy clicking. You shouldn't include Facebook or Twitter but definitely clean up any photos or posts that might turn someone off. Research has shown that employers look down the middle of a resume when scanning it. So make sure your headings — like "professional development" and "work experience" — are centered.
