I don’t know about you but I read. A lot… It’s almost as if I’ve got an unquenchable thirst for information.
It all started when I was 6 during a school break. I was bored and pestered my mom one too many times. In those pre-Nintendo days, she unceremoniously dumped me in my father’s study and told me to read a book. I couldn’t reach most of the books on the shelves but my oldest sister had left her copy of Mary Poppins on a side table so I started reading it. I read that book so many times that by the end of summer it was in tatters much to the annoyance of my sister. During subsequent summers I moved from Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn to some rather heavy books such as Les Miserables. Thinking back I’m sure most of the heavy themes went way above my head but I was hooked. Thanks mom
Now I read newspapers, magazines, books and blogs relating to world politics, the economy and the environment. And since I’m not an engineer but work with them I tend to read a lot of engineering related information simply because it helps me to do my job better.
That’s why I was so pleased to see a new initiative from my division – a publication called the Engineering Edge. It’s a quarterly magazine full of interesting and educational material relating to fluid flow simulation. In the latest issue you can learn about thermal simulation in the automotive industry, sports engineering and even cow bones in space! To read the latest issue simply follow this link and if you like what you see then subscribe to receive the publication. It’s really fast, easy AND free.
I’m grabbing my issue and will find a sunny spot to read it – for once we are expecting a sunny 3-day weekend and I am planning on doing a fair bit of hiking, laughing with friends and catching up with some reading when I’m too tired to do anything else.
Until next time,
