The real deal: This Canadian soldier earned his bravery medal
Ottawa Citizen
A combat engineer who earned the Governor General's medal of bravery by crawling into a small culvert in Afghanistan to defuse a bomb has one question for Franck Gervais: Why? "There must be some reason behind their actions and we don't know or understand what those reasons are," said 31-year-old Sgt. Dale Kurdziel, who is originally from Ottawa, but is currently based in Edmonton. One of the accolades Gervais wore on Remembrance Day in Ottawa — where he was taken for a Canadian soldier — appeared to be a medal of bravery, an honour that is meant to recognize those who have risked their lives in hazardous circumstances.

Engineering education gets hands-on with futuristic TEAL classrooms
University of Toronto
Things move quickly in Professor Steven Thorpe's fourth-year engineering design course. At one desk, students are building a model fuel cell. At another, they are conducting research online while jotting down formulae and diagrams. But with a physical space that isn't conducive to collaborative learning, Thorpe's hands-on assignments don't work as well as they could. "I liken my role to the conductor of an orchestra with many moving parts," said Thorpe. "The pace is dynamic, but the physical environment is not."

Pentagon moves to integrate technology with wearable equipment
Waterloo Region Record
The Pentagon has invested millions of dollars to make the size, weight and power of wearable technology and equipment smaller and easier for troops to carry. Wearable technology, like helmet-mounted displays, allow combat airmen on the ground to link into what airborne cameras see and may give air traffic controllers a way to spot where aircraft fly, according to Gregory M. Burnett, chief engineer at the Battlefield Air Targeting Man-Aided Knowledge, or BATMAN lab, at the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson base in Ohio.

Gaining productivity in destructive weld testing
Canadian Metalworking
In a twist on the old axiom of "work smarter, not harder," advancements in ergonomically-designed power tools now enable line workers to "work softer, not harder." These hard-hitting percussive tools can punch through tough boron steel while simultaneously softening the blow to the worker holding the gun. Numerous studies have documented the effectiveness of vibration and impact absorbing systems in tools such as air hammers and chisels.
