Trends in Vehicle Electrification and High-energy Battery Materials
Vehicle electrification is a primary theme in personal transportation. The degree of increased electrification ranges from 12 V start-stop systems to pure battery electric vehicles. In this talk, we highlight the drivers for these trends and current vehicle products. We shall discuss recent technical work associated with the estimation of lithium ion cell life, commensurate with high-energy batteries.
Growth of Electrochemical Engineering in a Clean Sustainable Energy Future
David P. Wilkinson
Electrochemical technologies provide the promise of being one of the important long-term solutions to energy and resource sustainability while minimizing environmental footprint. This talk will cover some key aspects of electrochemical technology and commercialization in a clean sustainable energy future. A view will also be provided on potential future research and development directions using some examples from our research.

Labour shortages looming for engineering industry
Journal of Commerce
A new report is forecasting more than 100,000 engineering job openings in Canada between now and 2025, as engineers retire and the economy continues to grow. The report, Engineering Labour Market in Canada: Projections to 2025, was released by Engineers Canada.
According to the report, Canada is facing a skills gap as engineers in senior level positions retire or leave the workforce and their experience cannot be replaced by students and early career engineering professionals.
How to set yourself apart during job interview
"Just take a chance on me."
It was a common line in my cover letters a few years ago, when I was desperate to make the switch out of management and into marketing — without a related degree or experience. Even so, I was so sure that if the employer just gave me a chance, he or she wouldn't regret it.
But when an employer has a pool of fully qualified candidates, why would he or she take a chance on someone who's on the edge of meeting the job requirements?
Google's algorithms advertise higher paying jobs to more men than women
Ad-targeting algorithms created by Google could be guilty of discriminating between internet users, say researchers from Carnegie Mellon University and the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI). A study that used custom software named AdFisher to simulate the browsing activities of web users found that when visiting job sites, fake male users were more frequently shown ads promising large salaries than fake female users.
Canadian Energy Services takes on oilfield chemical giants
Canadian Energy Services & Technology Corp., one of the country's best-performing energy stocks, wants to double its market share with custom-made production chemicals as other oil and gas service companies struggle through the downturn.
The oilfield chemical maker is improving research facilities in Houston and Calgary, where it will hire 15 scientists when its newly renovated lab opens in late July, and is looking for acquisitions. It's all part of a plan to expand the business and challenge industry giants like Halliburton Co. and Ecolab Inc. in North America.
Canadian economy observers brace for weak jobs numbers, call for rate cut
The Globe and Mail
The Canadian jobs picture has looked like a roller-coaster ride of late — one month up, one month down. After an unexpectedly strong up month in May, economists are bracing for a flat or down report for June from Statistics Canada. Will the report be accompanied by screams? If so, they will likely be even louder calls for another interest rate cut by the Bank of Canada.
