Dell salutes all our engineers as we celebrate Engineers Week February 19-25. We’re accepting applications for our 2017 internship program now. We succeed or fail together. And at Dell, a supportive environment rich with tools accelerates innovation, and that starts with the engineering internship program.Presenting the BestWhen Kanrong Yu (above), a Master’s student majoring in data science, found out she would be presenting her visualization model about the prediction of product error rates to the vice president of her division, she was excited for the challenge.Her manager asked if she was comfortable presenting, offering to help her with some practice runs. When word of her presentation spread, colleagues who weren’t even involved with her project sat in on her practice presentations to offer tips and suggestions.“They gave advice on how I could better present my ideas. They asked questions to challenge me,” Yu said. “Everything they did helped me better prepare to be more confident during the presentation.”In addition to presenting her research to the vice president, Yu also worked on natural language processing, a very cutting-edge text analyzing technique to help analyze consumer problem summaries. The analysis enables Dell’s development teams to better modify products.From Software to SystemsBritney Pierce enjoyed her second internship with Dell in summer 2016.“I had the same manager this year as last year and I really enjoyed his leadership and the team that I worked on,” Pierce said. “Returning for the second time, my manager actually gave me an opportunity to work as a systems engineer instead of a software engineer, even though I’m majoring in software engineering.”She was grateful that her managers enabled her to explore an area of engineering outside her academic studies, gaining valuable industry experience.Experience Guides Career PathDerek Nalodka, an industrial engineering major, was hired on the IT team.“I was pretty unsure of the work I’d be doing because I don’t come from an IT background,” he said. “But, my project aligns very well with my background and through this experience I’ve learned that I love working with people, I’m a strong communicator, and it’s pushed me into the direction of trying to eventually become a project manager.”Nalodka really appreciated how responsive his coworkers were, remarking he’d typically get responses to emails within the hour.“It’s extremely impressive given Dell’s size, to be continually pushing forward at the speed they do and to be constantly getting work done and moving on to the next thing,” he said. “I think Dell’s culture stands alone, it should be something that other companies want to model.” </p><p>
Source: UVM. AUG. 17, 2009 – WILLIAMSTOWN … ### An innovative new maple spout developed by the University of Vermont’s Proctor Maple Research Center with funding secured by Senator Patrick Leahy will have a dramatic impact on maple syrup production and boost job creation and economic development in the state, the senator announced at a press conference today. The new spout, which already has a million advance orders, will increase sap yields by 50 to 90 percent per tree, Senator Leahy said.The announcement was made at Progressive Plastics in Williamstown, which began commercial production of the device, called a check valve spout, the day of the press conference. Progressive Plastics is manufacturing the spout for Leader Evaporating Company of Swanton, which licensed the technology from UVM and will market and sell it. The senator also announced two new UVM appropriations that are part of his ongoing support of maple research at UVM’s Proctor Center and of his environmentally safe products project: $188,000 to fund research by the Proctor to further increase sap yields and $188,000 to develop a non-toxic wood adhesive. “I am pleased to see the benefits of these federal funds ripple so broadly through Vermont,” said Senator Leahy. “Support for research at the University of Vermont has created new opportunities for two Vermont companies, creating jobs, and this will also help Vermont maple producers become more productive. I appreciate the work of everyone who has helped to see these federal funds be so well spent.” “I want to thank Senator Leahy for his longstanding support of UVM research and for his faith in the talent and ingenuity of our faculty,” said Daniel Mark Fogel, UVM president. “The funding he secured for the maple spout development will deliver a significant return on investment in our state, at a time when Vermont needs good economic news. I know I speak for many when I say we couldn’t be more appreciative of the senator’s long running and deep commitment to serving the needs of all Vermonters.” 1 million advance ordersAlthough Leader has not yet listed the spout in its catalog or on its web site, the company has already received 1 million advance orders. Leader is projecting sales of three million units this maple season, making the spout its number one selling product. In the future, sales could be significantly higher. According to Gary Gaudette, president of Leader Evaporator, the check valve spout could have a revolutionary impact on the maple industry.“We’re very excited about the new fitting,” he said. “It’s going to add as much to syrup and sap production as vacuum tubing did. I’m confident that this is going to be the thing to use in the future.” There are between 50 and 55 million taps in use in North America, Gaudette said. Both Leader and Progressive Plastics are in hiring mode despite the recession, leadership at both companies said, and both anticipate the new spout will add further to their need to bring on new staff. Blocking backflowThe check valve technology was developed by Timothy Perkins, director of the Proctor Maple Research Center. It employs a valve – a small ball that rolls back and forth in a chamber within the spout – to block the flow back into the tree of sap containing bacteria. All tapped maple trees pull sap back into their tap holes, as they try to balance the negative pressure established both by natural process and by vacuum systems, which are pervasive in the industry. Bacterial backflow in turn causes the tree’s natural defense system to wall off the contaminated area of the tap hole, essentially plugging it and ending a sugar-maker’s season. Such walling off typically occurs late in the season. By allowing the tree’s sap to continue to flow, the new spout will extend the sugar-making season by one-and-a-half to two-and-a-half weeks, according to testing conducted by the Proctor and confirmed by Leader’s field testing. The sugaring season is typically four weeks long. The tap could also mitigate the effect of global warming on the Vermont maple industry. Warming has shortened the Vermont maple season by 10% over the last 40 years, according to research conducted by Perkins. It’s very gratifying to see federal dollars pay such clear dividends,” Senator Leahy said. “We all look forward to the impact this ingenious new product is going to have on the state’s sugar makers and on two important Vermont companies, as well as to the economic spillover effect it will create in our state as a whole.” read more

RelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Super Eagles stars model new national team jersey Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea Liverpool are reportedly keeping a very close watch on Samuel Chukwueze following the Villarreal winger’s breakthrough campaign last season. The 20-year-old enjoyed an outstanding breakthrough campaign last season, where his form brought him to the attention of some of European football giants and also saw him make his international debut for Nigeria. The likes of Arsenal, PSG and Real Madrid have all been mentioned as possible suitors, but according to Goal, it is Liverpool who are most watching the youngster closely. As per the report, scouts from the European champions have been regular visitors to the Estadio de la Cerámica and it’s believed Liverpool could make a move as early as January for a player already thought to be high up on Jurgen Klopp’s wish-list. Liverpool already have Senegalese star Sadio Mane and Egyptian king Mohamed Salah on their books and the capture of Chukwueze could give them an all-out African attack. The Nigerian is currently rated in the €40 million bracket, but with his value likely to soar, Liverpool know they may have to strike sooner rather than later or run the risk of seeing his price rise dramatically. Liverpool are also said to be keen on €15 million-rated Trabzonspor keeper Ugurcan Cakir. And having watched him in action over the weekend, it’s now reported in Turkey that the Reds are plotting a January approach for his services.Tags: European FootballLiverpoolSamuel Chukwueze read more
