A test chamber developed at Purdue University allows engineers to simulate precisely what happens to soil underground during the installation of piles and other structural elements, a research tool for improving construction of everything from buildings and bridges to offshore wind turbines. The system can be used to study many types of geotechnical structures during both their construction and service life, says Rodrigo Salgado, a professor of civil engineering. "The nice thing about the chamber is that it can be used to study many geotechnical problems for which there are neither experimental data nor theoretical solutions," he says. http://bit.ly/1NW5Fij

James H. Smart, born June 30, 1841, was Purdue's fourth president, serving from 1883-1900. A self-educated New Englander, Smart is known in Purdue history as "the engineers' president." The schools of civil, mechanical, and electrical engineering, as well as the school of pharmacy and pharmacal sciences, were established during his tenure. It was during his administration that Old Gold and Black were established as the school colors. http://bit.ly/1KZlk0N

A $1.26 million grant from the National Institutes of Health will expand the Purdue College of Veterinary Medicine’s after-school science program nationwide. Called "This is How We 'Role,' " the program will provide interactive science and math experiences to students in kindergarten through fourth grade, according to Dr. Sandy San Miguel, principal investigator and associate dean for engagement in the College of Veterinary Medicine. A partnership with Purdue's College of Liberal Arts will help deliver the program in English and Spanish, and assessment experts at Purdue's Discovery Learning Research Center in Discovery Park will provide a rigorous assessment of the program's impact. http://bit.ly/1KYZt7u

Is this in the Brevard or Asheville area of the Carolinas or elsewhere? I know Brevard is known for its white squirrels.

And animal species are being killed off at an equally horrifying rate. The greed and foolishness of humans goes on and on.

Motorists can expect gasoline prices this summer to remain considerably lower than what they were last year even though they have been edging up in recent weeks, according to Purdue University energy economist Wally Tyner. "The best bet for this summer is that gasoline prices will generally remain below $3 a gallon, except in California and Hawaii, where they are normally higher than the rest of the country," he says. While the national average price was $2.69 per gallon last week, it was 98 cents lower than at this this time last year. http://bit.ly/1Fq6611

Story
Tagline
Artist. Lover of dogs, horses, wolves, clouds, pyramids, music, dance, bubblegum sci-fi and more.
Introduction
Grandpa was a preacher man (and from my recollection, the closest anyone could be to being God himself.) Dad was a preacher man. He had 8 brothers and 6 of them were preacher men (one shifted to another denomination but that's okay.) My brother is the only grandchild who grew up to become a preacher man and he has done very well.
