Hydrotreating of Bitumen Derived Heavy Gas Oil Using Novel Adsorbent and Catalysis
Ajay Dalai
The heavy gas oils derived from oil sands contain high levels of sulfur (~4.0 wt.%) and nitrogen (~0.4 wt.%). The most widely used upgrading process is hydrotreating. The improvement of hydrotreating catalyst is mandatory in view of stringent environment regulations. Therefore, in this work, several mesoporous support materials such as modified SBA-15, mesoporous mixed metal oxides (TiO2-Al2O3, ZrO2-Al2O3) and large pore mesoporous metal oxides (ZrO2, Al2O3) were synthesized and utilized as a support material for NiMo hydrotreating catalyst.

Understanding Degradation Mechanism of Silicon Based High Energy Density Electrode Materials for Lithium Ion Batteries
Xingcheng Xiao
Diffusion induced stress is believed to be one of the major driving forces responsible for the mechanical degradation especially for Si based electrode materials with high capacity in lithium ion batteries. In this talk, we will first introduce how to characterize in situ diffusion induced stress, combining the in-situ optical observation of crack generation and propagation in a Si thin film electrode.

What to do when you don't hear back after an interview
Business 2 Community
The days and weeks after an interview are extremely nerve-wracking — you'll either be anxiously waiting good news after a really good interview, or dreading the inevitable rejection after an absolute disaster. However, sometimes you hear nothing. Nada. Diddly squat. At this point it's common to assume the worst and resign yourself to the fact that you weren't successful.

Fix Canada's broken Employment Insurance program
The Globe and Mail
An employee who loses her job in Saskatoon can collect Employment Insurance benefits for 14 weeks while she looks for new work, assuming she has worked for at least 20 weeks. But if the exact same person lost her job in Cape Breton, she would receive more than double the benefits — 30 weeks of EI payments — after just 12 weeks of work. Why? This system was designed decades ago to recognize regional differences in employment rates, and it assumes those in areas of higher unemployment need more time to find a new job than those in low-unemployment areas, such as Saskatoon.

4 things that turn off job recruiters before an interview
Gulf News
Looking for a new job in a competitive market is no easy task. What makes it more daunting is that many applicants don’t get any feedback from a potential employer. In fact, the majority of jobseekers once polled by CareerBuilder (75 per cent) said they never heard back from the company after submitting their application. There are a number of reasons recruiters or employers don't bother to respond to a job applicant. It is likely that the position has already been filled and the company doesn't have the time to reply to the hundreds of applications.
