How to Setup Your Mac to Develop News Applications Like We Do

Updated December 15, 2017 Hi! I’m Geoff Hing, a news applications developer who was filling in for Juan Elosua while he was on family leave welcoming his child into the world. Matthew Zhang started as the team’s intern around the same time, and as we wrap up our time out NPR, we’re also adding a few notes about how we’ve set up our development environments. This guide helps you get a solid Python environment set up, which we use for…

User-generated graphics in the browser with SVG

The challenge For NPR’s ongoing series “The Changing Lives of Women”, we wanted to ask women to share advice gleaned from their experience in the workforce. We’ve done a few user-generated content projects using Tumblr as a backend, most notably Cook Your Cupboard, so we knew we wanted to reuse that infrastructure. Tumblr provides a very natural format for displaying images as well as baked in tools for sharing and content management. For Cook your Cupboard we had users submit…

Chemical Engineering World: Planning Your Future Career

I would like to share a question that was asked to me recently. The question was posted to me in my Facebook private message. I have informed the person that I will try my best to answer her question in my blog, for the benefit of others because I believe more of chemical engineering students are facing the same dilemma. Identity of the person has been changed. Here is the question and it is followed by my answer. My answer…

Chemical Engineering World: Industrial Welded Mesh Wires

Industrial welded mesh is basically a screen that is made of metal with wires that are placed in a crisscross way. This mesh is made of stainless steel wire ( or sometimes in other materials depending on its application) to avoid corrosion and rust. The industrial welded mesh is generally used for a number of purposes and available in different sizes and shapes. It is very much related to the engineering, procurement and construction industry. Application of Industrial Wire Mesh…

How did thay do that? Great Infographic

As an engineer, it is imperative for us to have basic and extra knowledge and facts. It is useful for our communication and personal usage at work and at home. Imagine the faces of your subordinate, friends, superior, family when you tell them these interesting and fun facts. With that in mind, I would like to share this superb infographic that contains various information that is related to us, engineers. The source of this infographic is from www.bestonlineengineeringdegree.com. Check it…

How to build a news app that never goes down and costs you practically nothing

Our app on a shiny iPad: Inauguration 2013. Prelude I’ve been on the NPR apps team for a little over a month now. I’ll be real – it’s been pretty dope. We launched a slideshow showcasing the family photos of Justice Sotomayor, an inauguration app using Tumblr, and we just wrapped up our State of the Union live coverage. And we did it all in the open. But the thing that really blew my mind is this: We’re only running…

Be An Expert in At Least One Chemical Engineering Area

If you read this article, chances are you are a chemical engineering student or already graduated as a chemical engineer sometime ago. Congratulations!!!  Being a chemical engineer, there are plenty of job offers from various fields and industry. A chemical engineer can be in the oil and gas, biotechnology, oil and gas, polymer, plantations, educations, services, manufacturing, moulding, computer and others. The list are too long to be listed here. Nevertheless, a chemical engineer who has additional strength of expertise…

Chemical Engineering World: New Year 2013

Time move so fast that 2012 has just left us just like that. 12 days has passed since we entered the new year 2013 and I have not yet wish you, my readers, a very happy new year. This was mainly due to my hectic research activities such as writing several technical papers related to my study and this year I must submit my Ph.D thesis. How time move so fast? I began my career as an academician in July…

Industrial Tools at their Best

 What exactly are industrial tools? Let me provide my understanding on what industrial tools actually are. Briefly, industrial tools are equipment that can help making certain work in plant, refinery, workshop etc faster, smooth, easier and more accurate. Industrial tools are, crucially, an inevitable part of the industrial work. I witnessed and was directly involved using few industrial tools when I was involved in some projects such as internal pipeline chemical cleaning or the physical refinery plant annual shutdown. Let’s…

Chemical Engineering World: Propylene Present and Future

Polypropylene, acrylonitrile, propylene oxide, 2-propanol, cumene/phenol, oxo-alcohols, isopropanol, acrylic acids, and so many other derivatives are all obtained from propylene; a main building block in petrochemicals industry.  The increasing propylene-derivatives demand in the last few years has largely absorbed conventional available supplies of propylene as that from steam cracking of naphtha, and FCC off gas. On-purpose propane dehydrogenation is becoming a more economic favorable way to produce large amounts of propylene. Serious search for other routes for propylene production as…
