Deep Work and Time Blocks – UrbanWorkbench

A couple of weeks ago, I had to review the information contained in almost a dozen reports that were cross referenced, dating back over a decade. These reports totaled over 300 pages of information on water and sewer system upgrades and in the five years that I have been at the City of Revelstoke, I knew these reports were “important” information to process, but “urgent” matters tended to push these reports to the back burner. An example of Covey’s time…

All-purpose talent in aircraft manufacturing

The mobile robot is processing the tail-fin of an Airbus 320 aircraft. Credit: Fraunhofer IFAM In aircraft manufacturing, much of the milling, drilling and assembly is still done by hand. This is because the raw components vary not only in size and design, but also in shape accuracy. Small differences are unavoidable in extremely lightweight and elastic materials, which poses a challenge for automated processing. Working with an industrial consortium, Fraunhofer researchers have now developed a mobile robot that is…

MU College of Engineering announces creation of Biomedical Engineering bachelor’s degree program

MU already has the majority of faculty and resources needed to sustain a Biomedical Engineering program already in place, with no new resources requested from campus. This will allow the College to grow its competitiveness with other schools and colleges of engineering both regionally and nationally. The MU College of Engineering will take one of its most popular Bioengineering tracks and transform it into its own degree program, one that will meet the needs of students and employers while having…

Engineering Ethics Blog: The Legend of King Minsky: An AI Parable

Once upon a time, long ago but not that far away, there lived a king named Minsky.  His kingdom was prosperous and his citizens were contented, for the most part, but that was more than you could say for the king.  He had servants galore—chancellors of this and that, ladies and gentlemen in waiting, butlers, maids, footmen, all the way down to the scullery boy who carried out the trash.  But his servants never quite measured up to the king’s…

5 Reasons Screaming Circuits is Screaming Forward

As most of you likely know, I was recently interviewed by reporter Bill Thomson from the industry journal, AFI International. It wasn’t one of my usual interviews focusing on usage of new component form factors, general design for manufacturing, or PC board layout best practices. Rather, it was a more personal set of questions related to life inside Screaming Circuits. The reporter really wanted to know what makes us and our customers tick. So, I’m departing from my typical blog…

Introducing DNS Resolver, 1.1.1.1 (not a joke)

We’re using the following IPv4 addresses for our resolver: 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1. Easy to…

Researchers improve heat insulation using deliberate chaos — ScienceDaily

Powder is extremely well-suited for thermal insulation when there is a jumble of different sized nanoparticles in it. This was discovered by a research group at the University of Bayreuth led by Prof. Dr. Markus Retsch. The scientists were able to determine how the thermal conductivity of powder is influenced by order and chaos in its constituent parts. They have published their findings in the journal Advanced Materials. The starting point of the research was phototonic crystals that occur naturally…
