The workplace is changing, and signs of this change are everywhere. From companies with in-house bistros to Google’s dog-friendly spaces and Microsoft’s family benefits, the workplace is slowly evolving.
We are at a crossroads. For several years now, we have been aware of the fast-declining state of our country’s roads, bridges and other elements of our country’s infrastructure. The ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers) issues a report every four years on the state of our nation’s infrastructure. According to ASCE, the GPA for
Today’s scientists, engineers and resource managers know that a project’s success depends on a variety of factors, including the analysis of several environmental parameters. We know that the natural systems we are analyzing are complex. We know that water temperature, flow velocity, substrate type and other variables affect habitat…
The first maps on record that took advantage of an aerial perspective were sketched from the deck of a hot air balloon under the auspices of the Civil War’s Union Army Balloon Corps.

Although rarely the topic of mainstream media reports, in many coastal communities planners, engineers and other municipal officials are hard at work on a very particular mission: how to keep the sea out of the city. In many parts of the world, the ocean regularly
The ways of the Romans are still with us. Oddly enough, our present-day style of managing water has not strayed much from the centralized approach employed by the Romans some 2000 years ago. This was fine when cities first began to modernize, but the 21st century requires something
Back in early July I posted a short commentary on the state of highways and bridges in the U.S. The American Society of Civil Engineer’s (ASCE) comprehensive 2013 Report Card for America’s Infrastructure offers an in-depth analysis as well. But wouldn’t you know? There may be hope. The
An interesting article ran in ASCE’s (American Society of Civil Engineers) Journal of Leadership and Management in Engineering in 2008. Robert W. Clark, P.E., authored a piece about two well used bridges in Stuyvesant, New York. One of the bridges had passed safety inspections by the State
