Student life: CU freshman engineering projects on display at Expo

first_imgFrom compostable heat to a custom-built, sensory playhouse, CU freshmen at this year’s Engineering Projects Expo on Saturday, Dec. 7, had a lot to show off.The projects displayed a wide range of creativity combined with unique class objectives. Among 11 sections for the course “Engineering Projects,” student teams collaborated on a semester’s amount of work while addressing their “class mission.” Awards were distributed at the end of the expo, in which teams could win either the “peoples’ choice” award or enter the running for best among their section. All who attended the event could vote for the peoples’ choice award, and a panel of judges — practicing engineers from local engineering companies — determined best project per section.Derek Reamon, co-director of the Integrated Teaching & Learning Program and Laboratory (ITLL), mentioned that the expo – which started out as a small event in 1993 – is a great way for students to proudly display their work, think about their work by communicating their process and hopefully get other people excited about engineering.“It’s important in their education cycle to reflect on what they’ve done and how far they’ve come,” Reamon said. “It sort of closes the loop by having them explain to someone who hasn’t seen their project growing what they’ve built and why.”Each professor chose a subject for their class objective, and these ranged from heating homes for low-income families in Shiprock, N.M., to creating tools for clients with cerebral palsy. Several instructors now have a list of clients that they coordinate with to encourage projects that will satisfy a specific need.As Reamon explained, more and more instructors are bringing in clients for their Engineering Projects class.“And those clients are hard to find,” Reamon explained. The challenge, he said, is finding clients who will request a design or need but also allow students to be innovative. Some examples included an interactive design for kids to learn about fire safety, a radio controller for a woman with limited mobility, or home heating systems for low-income families.All of the projects displayed engineering concepts, practical applications and lots of creativity. One team created a passive solar lens out of a protective screen from a TV, which collected and concentrated sunlight over rebar in a concrete-filled bucket.  The rebar could get as hot as 230 degrees in 30 minutes with the exposure to sunlight, which could extend underneath a home and add a significant amount of heat. Their mission was to heat a home out of renewable energy while keeping costs low.Another team explored the benefits of transferring heat from a compost bin to heat a water system. As one of the students explained, exo-thermal chemical reactions occur in a compost bin and create a significant amount of heat. The team, who earned best in their section, aimed to collect and transfer that heat to a home’s water system, and they were able to retrofit this design by connecting the system to a back-up water heater.One section’s entire class, comprised of 30 students, collaboratively created a playhouse with sensory features and a special design for client, Noah, a five-year old boy with spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy. Splitting up into three teams, students divvied up work based on structures, interior structures and sensory details. The final product was a modular playhouse with an elaborate jungle theme, a hanging airplane that spins from the center of the ceiling, a cave lit up by multiple, bright neon colors and a slide for both Noah and his 3 year-old brother to enjoy.The “peoples’ choice” award went to team “Bad Intentions” for their project “RFID Liquid Dispenser.” The runner up was team “Humble Elephant” for their “Light and Music Box” project, and students from each of these teams received Golden Buff plaques and certificates to the book store.The expo takes place at the end of every semester, so be sure to catch the next one in Spring 2014.Photo by Patrick Campbell/University of Colorado.

Launch of GrapeSeed Pairs Wine Lovers with ‘Dream Team’ Winemakers

first_imgReddIt Share Home Industry News Releases Launch of GrapeSeed Pairs Wine Lovers with ‘Dream Team’ WinemakersIndustry News ReleasesVideoWine BusinessLaunch of GrapeSeed Pairs Wine Lovers with ‘Dream Team’ WinemakersBy Press Release – March 31, 2015 45 0 AdvertisementNew Members Only Collective Funds One-of-a-Kind Winemaking Projects, Provides Consumers with Exclusive Access, ExperiencesHealdsburg, Calif. – March 31, 2015 – Today, GrapeSeed™ Wine Fund launched as the first company to marry consumers’ desire for choice and exclusivity with winemakers’ passion for creating distinctive, small production wines. Leveraging a crowdfunding model, GrapeSeed enables members, or “Partners,” to pay a subscription fee to fund one-of-a-kind wine projects from its growing roster of iconic winemakers. This discreet channel of distribution effectively breaks down barriers that exist between consumers and artisan winemakers, creating a unique new community of wine lovers.GrapeSeed offers its Partners three membership levels that provide them with a variety of benefits, including access to wine steward services, wine country experiences and pre-release wine selections, depending upon partnership level. At every level, Partners make a monthly $100 wine fund contribution that may be used toward wine purchases.“What has always amazed me is how hard it is for even great winemakers to get their wines in front of the right consumers,” said Dave Trebilcock, GrapeSeed Founder. “GrapeSeed brings together wine enthusiasts with an unparalleled collection of winemakers, making our members, or Partners as we call them, an integral part of the process. GrapeSeed wines would not exist if it were not for the financial support of our Partners.”At launch, GrapeSeed has assembled a dream team of winemakers from Napa and Sonoma to create exclusive wines supported by consumer seed funding. The highly acclaimed team includes Jessica Boone, Nick Goldschmidt, Jean Hoefliger, Ed Sbragia and Douglas Stewart. GrapeSeed will expand into other well-known wine regions around the world as it develops its network of exceptional winemakers.“Some of my favorite Sonoma vineyards are so small it would be impossible to get those wines to market under normal circumstances,” said Nick Goldschmidt, a 26-year veteran winemaker with a vintner passport that includes Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Portugal, Chile, Argentina and all of North America. “With GrapeSeed, no matter how limited the production, I know that GrapeSeed Partners will have access to something unique.““The winemaking world can sometimes be traditional—a little conservative—and GrapeSeed allows winemakers to branch out creatively,” said Jean Hoefliger of Alpha Omega Winery. “It provides the audience I need to try innovative blends and concepts.”“I’ve always wanted to create wines from Napa and Sonoma that showcase historic growing regions where families like mine have been farming for generations. Without GrapeSeed Partners, my wine project, Permanence, would never have come to fruition,” said Ed Sbragia, former winemaster at Beringer Vineyards, vintner owner of Sbragia Family Vineyards and celebrated winemaker of more than 32 years.GrapeSeed Partners have total control over their wine experience, from deciding which wines they want and when they wish to receive them, to reserving allotments of upcoming releases at special pre-release prices. GrapeSeed wine prices range from $25.00 to more than $200.00 per bottle. GrapeSeed also provides Partners with exclusive access to popular wine country events and unique experiences at its winemaker partner properties.About GrapeSeed Wine FundGrapeSeed Wine Fund is a member-supported collective that funds exclusive projects by critically acclaimed winemakers. GrapeSeed empowers iconic winemakers to create original wines using resources funded by its consumers, known as Partners. Partners, in turn, reap the rewards of the winemakers’ craft through access to collectable wines and exclusive experiences. At time of launch, GrapeSeed offers wines from five winemakers, including Jessica Boone, Nick Goldschmidt, Jean Hoefliger, Douglas Stewart and Ed Sbragia.

Top Traits of Successful Entrepreneurs

first_img TAGSE ColumnElizabeth SlaterIn Short Direct Marketing Twitter Home Wine Business Editorial E Column Top Traits of Successful EntrepreneursWine Business EditorialE ColumnTop Traits of Successful EntrepreneursBy Elizabeth Slater – May 16, 2016 17 0 Share Email Linkedin AdvertisementI came across an interesting article in Business Dictionary about three weeks ago that talked about the top four traits of successful entrepreneurs. As most small retailers are entrepreneurs I thought the article (with my own comments added of course) would make interesting reading. So whether you are or want to be an entrepreneur, this article offers some good ideas.Becoming an entrepreneur takes a specific type of personality, though, according to the article, it includes traits that can be developed.ONE: As an entrepreneur you need to be a problem solver who can look at problems as an opportunity. If you can solve your customers as well as your employees problems, or learn how to understand their wants, needs and desires you can provide solutions that will make people happy and make you successful and profitable.TWO: An entrepreneur takes calculated risks. The article reminds us that risk-averse people do not, as a rule, make very good entrepreneurs, though on the other hand neither do reckless people who leap first and look later. To be a successful entrepreneur you need to evaluate and minimize risk.Also, entrepreneurs need to learn from their mistakes and then move on. It doesn’t help to waste time on what ifs. Analyze what went wrong and go forward.THREE: An entrepreneur is self-motivated. It’s about getting done what has to be done, even though you may not like some of those tasks. In fact get the tasks you don’t like done first. You also have to be constantly looking forward, creating plausible plans to create more opportunities and ways to succeed.FOUR: An entrepreneur is confident. Fear can make you back away from projects that could be ultimately successful. If you aren’t confident you will have a harder time getting others to see the value in your business, service or products.I have added a fifth rule to this group of four and that is surround yourself with people who have entrepreneurial tendencies. People who, while they don’t have their business, are creative and understand the need to innovate to move forward.Keep growing your entrepreneurial spirit.A tip of the glass from me to youE Columnby Elizabeth “E” Slater, In Short Direct MarketingA recognized expert in the fields of direct marketing and sales in the wine marketplace.

Cellcom, Golan Telecom deal clears latest hurdle

first_img Israel’s Cellcom, Xfone in network sharing spat Israel’s Ministry of Finance approved the acquisition of Golan Telecom by rival Cellcom after concluding there were no substantial reasons to oppose the deal, business news outlet Globes reported.The ministry noted after analysing the proposal, including the competition implications, it found no reason to object due to the “multiplicity and variety of players in the mobile telephony market”. The deal is yet to clear other regulatory steps, including gaining a green light from the country’s competition commission.Israel is a competitive mobile market, with GSMA Intelligence Q1 figures showing four mobile providers had more than a million mobile connections. Three of these closely competed for leadership with bases of between 2.3 million and 2.8 million.Golan Telecom was the fifth-largest with 849,000 connections, behind Altice’s Hot Mobile, Bezeq’s Pelephone, Partner and Cellcom.In striking the ILS590 million ($170.6 million) deal in February, Cellcom saw off a rival bid for the operator from Bezeq.The announcement came at a time of rife speculation regarding consolidation in Israel’s mobile market, with Hot Mobile attempting to acquire Partner Communications, a bid eventually abandoned.

Traffic jammed behind Quicken leaders

first_imgGAINESVILLE, Va. – When Troy Merritt completed his record-setting round of 61 he figured his 14-under-par total would leave him squarely back in the pack by the time dusk settled over Robert Trent Jones Golf Club. “Decent chance,” he figured when he completed his round just as the day’s last group was heading out at the Quicken Loans National. Little did he know a light breeze and intense humidity would combine with Saturday pressure to create a leaderboard as crowed as the Capital Beltway at rush hour. All told, the final five groups and the top 10 players heading into Round 3 posted an average of 70, nine strokes worse than Merritt’s masterpiece that left the 29-year-old tied with Kevin Chappell and a stroke clear of Rickie Fowler. It was not exactly the afternoon scoring many expected at a spongy layout that had yielded plenty of birdies, not to mention holes-in-one, for the first two and a half days. The result will be a busy landscape for Sunday’s final turn with a dozen players within four strokes of the lead. “Somebody will do it early and post a number,” said Charles Howell III, who loomed just two back at 12 under after a 67. “You have to stay at it on this golf course and especially if it’s fairly calm tomorrow like it was today. You got to make birdies.” Quicken Loans National: Articles, photos and videos Welcome to the East Coast version of the Bob Hope Classic where one-way traffic (up the leaderboard) is the only requirement. One of those early risers on Sunday who will need to claw his way back up the leaderboard is tournament host Tiger Woods, who failed to hit a fairway until the eighth hole on Saturday and scrambled his way to a 74 that didn’t look nearly that good. After turning in 1 over par Woods made a mess of the par-3 12th for double bogey and added another bogey at the 14th before finally making his first birdie of the day at No. 16. For a player who appeared inspired by two sub-70 rounds to begin his week it was another setback in his journey back to competitiveness. “I saw a lot of [Round 4 hole location] dots out there for tomorrow. They’re in pretty easy spots. Shoot one of those 61s out there,” said Woods, who needs a victory this week to qualify for next week’s WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, otherwise the PGA Championship may be his last start of the 2014-15 season. Fowler won’t need to be nearly as perfect as he continues to establish himself as a regular contender. Despite three bogeys, The Players champion signed for a 68 and continues to make good on his promise to start winning more events. Following last season, when he became the first player to finish inside the top 5 in all four major championships, Fowler committed to taking the next step this year with more trophies. His near-flawless finish at TPC Sawgrass in May was an impressive start and he added another “W” last month by winning the European Tour’s Scottish Open. “It would have been nice to get a win in the majors last year. With making history and that top 5 in all four majors it’s going to be special to look back on, but winning is a lot better than finishing top 5,” Fowler said earlier this week. While Fowler will be the clear fan favorite on Sunday it will likely be Justin Rose who may have the competitive edge. Although this year’s Quicken Loans National is being held at a new venue, the Englishman has proven himself adept wherever this event is played. In 2010, he won Tiger’s tournament at Aronimink Golf Club near Philadelphia; last year he collected his second Quicken Loans title at Congressional. It’s worth pointing out he won last year after starting the final round three shots out of the lead, the same place where he will begin Sunday. “I’ve won tournaments from four back before and it’s going to take something very low for me. It’s out there, probably 63 tomorrow,” said Rose, who moved into contention with a 65 after a late-afternoon putting session with his short-game coach on Friday.  It was a common theme at an uncommonly low-scoring event. In the eight-year history of the Quicken Loans, just twice (2009 and 2011) has the winning score made it to 13 under. Thanks to Merritt’s early move on Saturday and Chappell’s workmanlike 67 that benchmark has already been eclipsed. It all sets the stage for a very different final round from what players and fans have come to expect at the Washington, D.C. area stop. “You’ve got to keep the pedal down tomorrow,” Howell said. And you also have to remember this is not your normal Quicken Loans National.last_img read more

Martin Retiring as Glacier Park International Airport Director

first_img Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup. Sign up for our newsletter and get the best of the Beacon delivered every day to your inbox. Cindi Martin is retiring as director of Glacier Park International Airport, ending a tenure that saw record passengers and a significant makeover of the largest airport in Northwest Montana.Martin will retire Aug. 31, ending her 10-year career as GPIA director and a 30-year career in aviation. The Flathead Municipal Airport Authority Board appointed Robert Ratkowski as the interim director while a search is underway for a permanent director. Ratkowski has been with the Airport Authority since 2004 and served as deputy airport director since 2007.“It has been my privilege to serve the Authority, and to work alongside the professional and dedicated staff who work tirelessly to operate a safe and compliant airport each and every day,” Martin stated. “After almost three decades in aviation and 10 years as Airport Director at GPIA, it’s time to transfer leadership to the next generation.”Under Martin, GPIA has evolved into one of the largest airports in Montana. In 2006, the airport only had three carriers flying to four destinations. Now there are 10 destinations served.The local airport broke its annual passenger record for the fourth year in a row in 2015. A total of 470,238 revenue passengers traveled through Kalispell, according to airport officials. That includes 236,628 passengers who boarded a flight in Kalispell and 233,642 who arrived on a flight in Kalispell.The airport itself has undergone significant growth. In 2015, which marked the 40th anniversary of the Flathead Municipal Airport Authority being established to operate and oversee GPIA, a nine-year, $34 million capital improvement project was completed. The project included a sizable makeover of the terminal and several improvements to the site’s infrastructure.“Cindi Martin has been a very strong leader, and one who has managed the Authority and Glacier Park International Airport through challenging times and changes in the industry,” stated Dennis Beams, chairman of the board. “The board is grateful for her leadership, her commitment to the airport board, staff, tenants, the community and the flying public. All evident in her thoughtful development of the airport, and her distinguished tenure as Airport Director over the last 10 years.”Beams pointed to the significant improvements and record passengers as evidence of Martin’s leadership.“Today, despite the downturn in the economy and consolidation in the airline industry, GPIA enjoys direct service on four air carriers to five year-round hub cities and an additional five seasonal hub cities,” Beams stated.

D3T details first ever Wellbeing Week

first_imgD3T details first ever Wellbeing WeekStudio’s new initiative will cover physical, emotional and financial health across five days of activitiesJames BatchelorEditor-in-ChiefMonday 17th June 2019Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareCompanies in this articled3tTales of crunch, toxic studio environments and otherwise intense working conditions have emerged all too frequently over the past year, so it’s a welcome change of pace to hear of a developer making extra efforts to look after its staff.Many studios try to make life easier for their employees in small but significant ways — cycle-to-work schemes, discounted gym memberships, or even the availability of free fruit in the canteen. But UK-based work-for-hire studio D3T is attempting something grander and more all-encompassing in the form of a Wellbeing Week, which kicks off on Monday, June 24.”Game development is not an easy business, project deadlines are often tight, the underlying technologies are constantly evolving, and the quality bar only ever goes up,” D3T’s head of studio Richard Badger tells GamesIndustry.biz. “While these conditions create an exciting and vibrant environment in which to work, that environment can all too often also be highly pressured, as teams push themselves to the limits in order to deliver for our clients.Richard Badger, D3T”We ask a lot of our teams in their day-to-day work, they invest emotionally in our projects, so consequently we feel it is important to recognise that investment and reciprocate. By running initiatives such as the wellbeing week, we are seeking to counterbalance those pressures in pursuit of a more healthy work-life balance. A team that feels valued and supported will work efficiently and always deliver the best quality work.”The concept was proposed by newly hired office manager Samantha Watmore, and has been developed based on research into the wellbeing initiatives run by larger corporations. Every day next week, the studio will run some form of activity, exercise or counselling sessions that fit into a handful of key themes.Monday, for example, will be dedicated to nutrition and finance; the former will offer advice and recipes for healthier eating, while the latter will involve private sessions to find out if team members are under any financial pressures.Tuesday covers mental wellbeing, with a focus on anxiety, which will be covered through a series of workshops. Wednesday is all about relaxation, with the studio bringing in a trained therapist to discuss ways staff can destress, followed by a professional massage.D3T is looking into new ways to encourage a healthy lifestyle for its staff, whether that’s full group sessions or tips on desk exercisesThursday is dedicated to health and fitness, with an athlete offering both a studio-wide workshop and one-to-one advice. Finally, Friday will encourage bonding time between the team with games at lunch and social activities after work.Every activity is open to all members of staff, but none are compulsory. They are all being held during the lunchtime period or after working hours, so impact on current projects will be kept to a minimum.Samantha Watmore, D3TParticularly interesting is the use of one-on-one sessions, especially on the financial day. Watmore says this is because D3T recognises every team member faces their own unique challenges and life experiences, and the studio wants to do what it can to help.”Whether it’s a project-specific anxiety, a sprained ankle that refuses to heal, or a more general financial worry, everyone has influencing factors that impact their day-to-day wellbeing,” she says. “We are consequently seeking to address as many areas of wellbeing as possible during this week at D3T.”We are offering a variety of group workshops for more open discussion, but also private one-to-one sessions to cater for employees that feel more comfortable in a more private setting.”In addition to the week’s schedule, D3T has also shared with its employees a series of exercises recommended by the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy for people sitting at desks all day, and even suggested walking routes in the local area, encouraging staff to leave the office and stretch their legs every day.Related JobsSenior Game Designer – UE4 – AAA United Kingdom Amiqus GamesProgrammer – REMOTE – work with industry veterans!

Their wellbeing is key to the success of the studio. From the studio’s inception eight years ago, we have always fostered policies such as ‘anti-crunch’.”Badger concluded: “We take the health and wellbeing of our team extremely seriously; both physical and mental. The team is the lifeblood of the studio. So yes, d3t does feel that is has a duty of care to the team.”Celebrating employer excellence in the video games industry8th July 2021Submit your company Sign up for The Daily Update and get the best of GamesIndustry.biz in your inbox.
