    What makes an engineer change jobs?

    Interesting thread, one question that I had- are you getting people in for interviews and they are not accepting? Or is the issue getting an interview set up?

    Home Improvement/Repair Questions

    My dad has a firewood and logging business, after a conversation during my normal Monday staff meeting about material costs I reached out to him to see what he's seeing on his end. He primarily sells hardwood into firewood and the rest goes to pulp (paper), but he sells to the area sawmills when...

    I am not sure about TX, but Colorado has this: Graduate from an engineering curriculum of 4 years or more OR from a related science curriculum of 4 years or more. Must have 20 years of progressive engineering experience of which education may be a part. Waive EI requirement. I am not sure if...

    2019 Novel Coronavirus

    Think about it this way: for the duration of Covid it has been told to us that healthy people handle it fine (minor symptoms, but distance because you may have it without knowing and spread it) and that was reiterated to millennials when the vaccine was rolled out and they couldn't get it for 4...

    Home Improvement/Repair Questions

    Not home related, but I was talking with a shop about ordering a cap/topper for my truck. He said the prices are the same, but the delivery is a wild card. Supposedly, the cap manufacturers don't really know when they will get fiberglass from the fiberglass factory, so delivery is anywhere from...

    2019 Novel Coronavirus

    Serious (probably hypothetical) question- what is the demographic that's not getting vaccinated?

    Travel!! Where are you headed; Where do you want to go? Where have you been?

    Both are good ideas, and look at other packages that the Alaska Rail Road (AKRR) offers. I was only up there for work, and needed the AKRR so I learned a decent amount about it. Make sure you visit Snow City Cafe and Gwennie's. Honestly, I don't remember any bad food in Anchorage. I recently...

    2019 Novel Coronavirus

    I was there 3.21 to 3.28. 100% true. There was a stark difference between Boulder CO and anywhere we went in FL.

    2019 Novel Coronavirus

    I snipped this from the CDC: In particular the second paragraph. "There is a possibility you may test positive on some antibody tests". If the answer was "you will test positive for Covid antibodies after getting the vaccine" we wouldn't be discussing this. Everything we previously knew...

    2019 Novel Coronavirus

    Yes generally, but not this vaccine. Your body thinks it had measles because you were injected with a weakened measles virus and your body killed it, and created an antibody. From Mayo Clinic: “Both the Pfizer-BioNTech and the Moderna COVID-19 vaccines use messenger RNA (mRNA). Coronaviruses...

    2019 Novel Coronavirus

    My understanding is the vaccine has only been proven to keep the vaccinated person from being infected with C19. There is no proof that the vaccinated person does not carry and distribute the virus. The point of a mask is not to keep you from getting infected with C19, its to keep your...

    2019 Novel Coronavirus

    Really stupid question- if "others" is vaccinated, is the unvaccinated employee a threat?

    2019 Novel Coronavirus

    My inlaws are in Fairfield Township, and were able to get it just because they are old. My MIL works in the front part of a pediatricians office- I can't remember the details but it was a complete cluster f trying to get vaccines a month or so ago. I think my FIL got one at Walgreens, Or UDF...

    2019 Novel Coronavirus

    Is the flu vaccine mandatory for occupations other than the military? Seems as though once the vaccine is approved by the FDA and not in EUA status, it will be of the same standard as the flu vaccine and therefore could be mandatory?

    Design Build Bridging Documents

    What you stated is pretty much the way I have come to understand the DB process is. In general: - Owner (state, city, airport, PPP, etc) has an idea of something that needs to be built - Owner finds funding and usually acquires the land/easements/access to the area - Owner provides a layout (5%...

    2019 Novel Coronavirus

    There was a good article in the daily ENR email this morning. It was from the Monterey County Herald and referenced California law throughout. The article stated the biggest difference between C19 vaccine and all the others available/required for schools is the FDA has not explicitly approved it...

    The Automotive Thread

    My dad buys bulk diesel for his equipment in central Maine. I don't know the exact details, but he generally puts a 50/50 mix or better of Number 1 (kerosene) with his normal #2 (home hearing oil). Obviously, this is different when it goes in a truck engine (road taxes). He could run kerosene...
