Leadership in Sustainable Infrastructure/Leadership en infrastructures
Discovery about wound healing key to understanding cell movement
Research by a civil engineer from the University of Waterloo is helping shed light on the way wounds heal and may someday have implications for understanding how cancer spreads, as well as why certain birth defects occur.
The tender contracts chess game
Daily Commercial News
As I see it, whatever the case may be with respect to extreme forms of a RFP, the law is very clear that a "pure" tender (in which irrevocable bids are submitted on the understanding that the lowest compliant bid has at least a prima facie right to be awarded the contract) typically does in fact give rise to enforceable legal rights in favour of both the supplier and the contractor.
Engineering work climate remains hostile to women
Despite a 21st century professional environment that touts equal opportunity, research presented at the American Psychological Association's Annual Convention suggests that nearly 40 percent of women who earn engineering degrees quit the profession or never enter the field.
Fixing America's crumbling infrastructure goes beyond economics
It's no secret the nation's infrastructure is crumbling. Toledo's water supply was discovered to be tainted with toxic algae on Aug. 2, and on July 31, Los Angeles endured a major water pipeline break in the Eagle Hill neighborhood two days after a rupture on Sunset Boulevard flooded the University of California, Los Angeles with more than 20 million gallons of water — all while California is in the midst of the worst drought in decades and water waste penalties are in place.
