On Wednesday, October 28, experienced Rose-Hulman students were given a rather counterintuitive piece of advice regarding their job searches: “If your reason for working is the money, then that’s the right answer [in an interview] as far as we’re concerned.” Most students would think that interviewers might want to hear a motivation as something like “because I want to save the environment” or “because I love [insert major here],” rather than the desire for cold, hard cash. Dave Sommer, District Sales Manager for the TRANE Indiana Commercial Sales Office, thinks differently.
Onegood fundraiser deserves another.
That was the theory, anyway, when Engineers Without Borders hosted a fundraiser at Applebee’s last Tuesday to raise money for an upcoming project. The fundraiser was scheduled to take advantage of the Give Up A Meal program, which sawmany Rose-Hulman students forgo their on-campus evening meal.
Sparks through stimulus
President Barack Obama announced Wednesday that $3.4 billion of the $787 billion economic stimulus package will be dedicated to grants and funds to increase the reliability of the United States electrical grid. The massive power outage that shut down much of the northeast United States and parts of Canada in August 2003 is offered by supporters as proof that the nation’s grid needs fi xing. Currently, the monies are to be used to create a “smart” grid, where power is regulated and rerouted through the network, like the Internet “backbone” does already. In addition, the buzzword “jobs” has been thrown around, with advocates of the plan noting that it will generate many new jobs in the energy sector.
Robotics is engineering. Robotics is fun; therefore engineering is fun. That’s the basic theme behind the Rose Explore Engineering program, and it’s a surefire success. On Tuesday, 70 students from various middle and high schools as far away as Indianapolis came to campus to experience some of the robotics projects typically seen by Rose students.
As musicals go, very few have left as big an impression on our generation as “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” Many of us grew up with the lyrics at hand, reveling in the eerily beautiful music supplied by Mr. Danny Elfman. For sixteen years, we have lived with the visuals and sounds of the original movie, not expecting anything to ever surpass it, which is where “Nightmare Revisited” comes into play.
On a scale of epicness, “Marvel Zombies” is one of the top most epically beyond epic comic storylines in history of zombiecomics. Add Ash Williams from the “Evil Dead” series, and “Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness” becomes a must-read for any zombie comic fan. “Marvel Zombies” is a fi ve-issue limited series that was published between December 2005 and April 2006. Since, this mass zombie hysteria spread there have been a prequel, a crossover with “Army of Darkness,” and three sequels, with a new series called “Marvel Zombies Return” being published right now (this one following events from “Marvel Zombies 2”). The series has been a success, but for those rabid undead zombie fans, the “Army of Darkness” crossover takes the cake (or brains, in this case).
