They are a veritable bargain when ordered from Dick Blick at less than $2 a stick (the Prismacolors set me back $4 each at Hobby Lobby). I haven’t had much of a chance to put them through their paces yet but I can say that my early impressions are much more favorable than with the Prismacolors. Note special chiseled tip that allows for multiple line weights

UK-SPEC - UK-SPEC The UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC) describes the value of becoming registered as an Engineering Technician (EngTech), Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng). It describes the requirements that have to be met in order to gain these qualifications, and gives examples of ways of doing this. UK-SPEC should enable individuals and employers to find out whether they or their staff can meet the requirements, and explains the steps necessary to achieve professional registration with the Engineering Council. Our registrants carry many responsibilities, including the need to observe a professional code of conduct. These are described here, together with advice on how to maintain registration. UK-SPEC is published by the Engineering Council on behalf of the UK engineering profession. The previous edition can be accessed via archived publications

WES home page | Women's Engineering Society Towards a single-chip, implantable RFID system: is a single-cell radio possible? Abstract We present an overview of progress towards single-chip RFID solutions. To date heterogeneous integration has been appropriate for non-biological systems. However, for in-vivo sensors and even drug delivery systems, a small form factor is required. We discuss fundamental limits on the size of the form factor, the effect of the antenna, and propose a unified single-chip RFID solution appropriate for a broad range of biomedical in-vivo device applications, both current and future. 1 Introduction When James Clerk Maxwell discovered the displacement current, hence completing Maxwell’s equations, in 1865, the stage was set for the wireless transmission of information. The next 100 years will see a similar revolution in the integration of information technology and biotechnology, also called biomedical engineering. For interrogation of biological systems, one is generally interested in a chemical or physical quantity. Fig. 1 Single cell radio concept 2 RFID state of the art Fig. 2 Fig. 3

Embody 3D - Industrial Design Blog Engineering Gateways - Learning Whilst Earning Wernher von Braun Wernher Magnus Maximilian, Freiherr von Braun (March 23, 1912 – June 16, 1977) was a German rocket engineer and space architect. He was one of the leading figures in the development of rocket technology in Germany during World War II and, subsequently, in the United States. He is credited as being the "Father of Rocket Science". In his 20s and early 30s, von Braun was the central figure in the Nazis' rocket development program, responsible for the design and realization of the V-2 combat rocket during World War II. Early life[edit] Wernher von Braun was an accomplished amateur musician who could play Beethoven and Bach from memory. Beginning in 1925, von Braun attended a boarding school at Ettersburg Castle near Weimar where he did not do well in physics and mathematics. In 1930, von Braun attended a presentation given by Auguste Piccard. He was greatly influenced by Oberth, of whom he said: German career[edit] Involvement with the Nazi regime[edit] Party membership[edit] Michael J.
