A Multidisciplinary, Multi-scale, and Multiphase Approach to Enhanced Oil Recovery Research
Lesley James
Enhanced and improved oil recovery (EOR and IOR) aims to increase the microscopic, areal, and vertical sweep efficiency by manipulating a number of governing parameters affecting the fluid-fluid, fluid-rock, and well inflow properties. The goal of this research is to highlight the need to approach enhanced oil recovery research in a multidisciplinary fashion taking into account the multi-component, multiphase fluid flow through anisotropic heterogeneous complex porous media

Allothermal Multi-compartment Fluidized Bed Concept for Steam Gasification of Biomass
Faical Larachi
A reaction engineering approach was used to investigate the potential of carbonation and tar-removal catalytic properties of magnesium silicate wastes. Detailed low- and high-pressure carbonations in dry and humid environments were carried out for pre- and post-combustion applications. These silicates were benchmarked with respect to olivine as a catalyst for tar removal using benzene catalytic steam reforming. The study was linked to reactor studies where a new reactor concept of allothermal cyclic multi-compartment fluidized bed steam biomass gasification was proposed.

Canada West Foundation: 40 per cent of workers don't have the basic skills to do their jobs
CBC News
A new report says missing job skills in industries from retail to engineering are hurting Canada's productivity. The study by the Canada West Foundation says 40 per cent of employees could perform better if they improved on basic skills like math, reading and writing. The skills being discussed are not advanced — they're not necessarily highly technical in nature, nor are there individually rare in many people.

2015's top 15 engineering schools by salary
Design News
The month of May marked the deadline for most students to decide which university they'll be attending in the fall. Of course earning potential is always a top concern among students (and their parents). Payscale.com has released its yearly numbers on the top engineering schools by salary potential and we decided to break down this year's top 15.

6 tips to capitalize on today's job market
Forbes
Indeed.com is the number one global job search engine; it drew over 180 million unique visitors in the first quarter of 2015. With so many visitors and postings, you'd better believe Indeed has compiled a massive storehouse of job-related data. That data, coupled with Indeed's proprietary research, provides a compelling snapshot of what's happening in the job market and what to expect.

What are the most distinctive jobs in your province?
CBC News
Canada is a diverse country, with jobs that reflect that diversity. Below is our interactive map of what we're calling the most distinctive jobs for each province. Some might seem predictable — jobs such as longshore workers in B.C., petroleum engineers in Alberta and fishing vessel deckhands in Nova Scotia top the lists in those places, for example.
