A multidisciplinary, multi-scale, and multiphase approach to enhanced oil recovery research
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
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 adds 12,000 jobs in September but unemployment rate rises to 7.1 per cent
Canada's economy added 12,000 jobs last month, but the unemployment rate increased slightly to 7.1 per cent because more people were also looking for work.
Most of the jobs were part time, Statistics Canada said Friday, with 74,000 new part-time positions created during the month, offset by a loss of 62,000 full-time jobs.
StatsCan study: Self-employment rises with joblessness
More half a million Canadians enter the ranks of the self-employed every year, with even more opting for self-employment when joblessness is high, a new study by Statistics Canada shows.
The study attempts to examine the issue of how many Canadian workers are self-employed, not by choice, but because there aren't jobs available.
How a business degree can help you land a job in technology
Globe and Mail
Technology is replacing jobs in some sectors such as manufacturing and agriculture, but is also creating positions, including management and executive roles, in a broad range of industries such as financial services, communication and retail. That bodes well for students taking post-graduate business degrees, such as an Executive MBA (EMBA), with an eye on a career in the technology field.
7 reasons young women shouldn't be deterred from science and engineering careers
Today, approximately 650 middle school and high school science students will come to USC to take part in a laser and optics interactive fair. Sounds wonky? It isn't. Optics and laser technologies are the technologies on our smartphone screens and smartphone cameras and are influencing the future of self-driving cars. According to the industry organization SPIE, the size of the photonics and laser industry is expected to grow to over $650 billion by 2020.
Young women in Engineering Symposium attracts top high school science students
U of T Engineering
A select group of high-achieving high school science students had the opportunity to spend their morning last Saturday with one of the world's leading experts in biomedical engineering.
More than 70 top students from schools across the Toronto area gathered at the Faculty's Young Women in Engineering Symposium (YWIES).
