Why automobile engineers cant reply cars

Why mechanical engineers cant repair carsOnly

Three Kinds of Work
There are but three general classes of work. They are:
WORK WITH PEOPLE; = managers
WORK WITH THINGS; technologist
WORK WITH IDEAS. = designers/engineers

Each individual is fitted by nature to do one of these better than the others and there will be one class for which he has the least ability. In the other one ofthe three he might make a mediocre success.

Engineering involves designing combined with material property, models to predict material behavior under certain condition and creative thinking
Engineering= drawing + mathematics +thinking,
Technology involves making things with tools , materials and skills to bring into reality the design of engineers

Technology Is a product
Engineering is a process
Engineering = applied science +mathematics
Technology =applied science + tools

Engineering specialization= design +calculation(use of head)
Technologist specialization= use of tools(use of hand)

From the above, we can see that mechanical engineers don’t build and repair stuff anymore as one does years ago. Instead, they draw plans and input it in a computer using basic computer aided design software such as solid works and auto cad. Such designs are sent to technologist for production. There is no automobile production plant in the country so automobile engineers are not utilized. The few designs end up in the journals wasted since no automobile plant to produce their design. We mainly import vehicles or their spare parts. Use of tools is the spec ialisation of a technologist. Hence, the average Nigerian expect an engineer to assemble or repair cars.

There is need to design more fuel economy vehicle. An engineer applies scientific law.
Massflow rate= velocity * area
Velocity of automobile is determined by the driver, so he tries to alter the area of fuel delivery system to test if would have an effect on the quantity of fuel dissipated per unit time.. He applies differential calculus (calculation)to reduce the area of the fuel system. Next he draws his proposed shape on a paper(manually or using computer) and instruct the technologist to produce his new design. After it is produced, the system is testrun .

From the above, engineers are creative thinkers who find ways to solve problem
Technologist are part of the family who execute engineers thought
Without the engineer, there would be no change or invention
Without the technologist, an engineer idea would remain on paper
Both need each other.
In most big factories, engineers are not expected to handle tools. Technologists are not expected to design . companies hire engineers to do design work and hire skilled labour to do skilled work.
But some engineers know how to do repairs. Yes, such kmowledge was not learnt in classroom. It was either learnt during industrial training days or before got admission to study engineering. Similarly a technologist can learn how to design . learning both is an advantage to the individual as it ensures work security and more efficiency the same way a footballer can learn how to be a center back and a left back (e.g Chelsea victor Moses)

It should also be noted that the curriculum for engineers have changed. In the early days, engineers had little knowledge in management. Hence, the furtherest he could be promoted was a factore manager. An engineer would spend many years working while a fresh graduate who studied economice, accountancy and management are made general managers. Today, engineers are taught managerial courses like operational research,engineering economics, production planning etc. this is to enable him make managerial decision such as planning inventory, optimising production process, predicting depreciation rate to guide company when to purchase a new machine etc.-a shift from core engineering to management. This makes an engineer more versatile and a technologist less


Apart from paying your school fees and providing shelter, what other impacts did your father had in your life?

It really is remarkable how deeply fathers impact the lives of their children either negatively or positively. The following stories describe four different kinds of fathers. You may find yourself identifying with one of them

1) One man who struggles with low self esteem recalls that his father paid very little attention to him, and that the attention he got was often hurtful. He sill struggles with feelings of failure and the thought that no matter how hard he tries it just isn’t good enough.
His father on the other hand felt that he was motivating his son with positive criticism “for his own good”, and that his lack of affirmation was to keep his son from becoming proud and arrogant. “All I wanted was to help him be the best that he could be. I know my standards were high, but the world is a tough place and I just wanted him to be prepared”. Although his intentions may have been good, the damage he caused would take years to overcome.

2) A lady tells the story about her father who was overprotective. She had very little freedom to go anywhere. If she asked permission to go somewhere there was always a reason why she couldn’t.

3) Another lady tells the story of how her Dad was a workaholic and that there was a lot of tension and conflict in the home. He may have been there physically but he was emotionally unavailable to her. She felt ignored by him. She longed for his attention and approval. She grew up feeling empty, emotionally abandoned, and struggled with low self esteem.
If you ask her how her relationship with her father impacted her she would tell you that she felt she had to grow up too fast, and that she missed out on her childhood. She leaned at an early age to fend for herself and not to ask for help and that she couldn’t trust people especially men, because they would let her down. As a teen she looked for love in all the wrong places and would dress in a way that got attention from guys, but in the end it wasn’t the kind of attention she needed. The whole trajectory of her life was in the wrong direction and she ended up in a lifestyle of promiscuity and addiction.

4) On a positive note there is a man who describes his dad as being someone he could always talk to. He remembers having all kinds of discussions with him on many different topics. As a kid he felt that he could actually learn from his dad’s mistakes. His dad was not perfect by any means, but at least he was authentic. Even as a kid his dad would ask him for his opinions and his ideas and would listen curiously to what he would have to say. He remembers his dad as having boundaries but also being flexible. If he could come up with a good enough argument for why he should be able to do something he could usually convince his dad, as long as it wasn’t unreasonable. He remembered developing a strategy for picking his battles and not sweating the small stuff.
If you ask how him how his dad impacted his life he would tell you that he learned to think for himself. Despite his shortcomings and failures he felt affirmed and validated as a young man, and that this somehow gave him the “freedom to fail”. He attributes his success in life to this “freedom to fail”.
This man is an confident decision maker and has risen to be a leader in his place of work. At home he loves being a dad. His wife also loves that he can articulate his thoughts and feelings well. Generally speaking he seems to be a happy guy.

Isn’t it interesting how deeply our relationship with our fathers impact us?
A good balance between love and discipline is the key to great parenting. Barbara Coloroso describes four parenting styles based on love and discipline. The “jellyfish” parent scores high on love but low on discipline. The “brick wall” parent is like the father in the first example- high on discipline and low on love. The “permissive” parent, like the father in the third example, is low in love and low in discipline. The “backbone” parent represents the ideal. Like the father in the fourth example this parent scores high on love and high on discipline.

life of a nigerian engineering student 1

congratulations,you have just being admitted to study engineering in a nigerian university. You are happy ,you will be spending the next 5years after which you will be called an engineer.you have finally finished registration and your journey as an engineering student is set to begin.

Its 7;30,you have finish taking your bath.you join the art students in wearing a suit and knoting a tie. And heading for lectures.you look around and discover you are the only engineering student dressing in co-operate.shortely after,the lab attendant gives you a lab overall foor protection. You are asked to remove your pointed shoe and put on a mighty boot.
You look around, you are in a small room without fan and aircondition along with with over 70 students. You are really sweating.


6 Symbols That We Turned Into Words

8 Symbols That We Turned Into Words

A recent article by Anne Curzanexplains how the slash (/) has become a proper word among young people. Her students not only speak the wordslashin places where the symbol would be found in writing, they write it out instead of using the symbol in status updates and text messages. (Does anyone care if my cousin comes visits slash stays with us Friday night?) Even more interesting,slashhas taken on a different meaning than the and/or one implied by the symbol. It can be used to follow up on a comment, or add an afterthought (I really love that hot dog place on Liberty Street. Slash can we go there tomorrow?) To Curzan this development of a new kind of conjunction is “like a rare bird sighting in the world of linguistics: an innovation in the slang of young people embedding itself as a function word in the language.”

The heart probably first made its way into written language with the classic “I ♥ Mom” tattoo, but it became really prominent during the 1970s’ “I Love New York” tourism campaign. The logo for the campaign substituted a red heart for the wordlove, and soon imitators were putting it on mugs and T-shirts proclaiming love for all kinds of things. Then the symbol turned back into a word, not meaning love, but heart. This seems to have begun with the 2004 movieI ♥ Huckabees, which was read out loud as “I Heart Huckabees” (though it was also called “I Love Huckabees”). Now people heart to heart everything. They heart it so much.

The hash (#) symbol took on special importance in Twitter for its use in hashtags, keys that could be used to group or organize tweets. Hashtags soon became a way for people to make meta-comments or asides about what they were saying (“Watching wheel of fortune and eating oreos #livingthedream”). People started introducing hashtags in their speech by saying the word hashtag and then, to bring it full circle, started writing the wordhashtagto introduce meta-comments (“Yay for the selfie screen on vine. Hashtag so excited!”), even when they could have used the much more economical (#)

DOT DOT DOT means so much more than you think!
— It’s A Teen Thing! (@ohteenquotes) May 21, 2012
The ellipsis (…) is a useful way to indicate a pause or, at the end of a sentence, to hint that there is more to say, but you’re not going to say it right now. It’s perfect for coy social media dialogue. Lately those who want to really emphasize the coyness or the awkwardness that an ellipsis can represent, as well as show that they are well aware they are taking advantage of those functions, write it out asdot dot dot(“I need more friends to hang out with because when my like 4 friends are busy I’m just like dot dot dot”). It can even be used along with ellipses (“I’m wearing children’s size 10-2 socks right now….. Yea, dot dot dot….”)

Not all of our symbols-turned-words come from the modern era of social media. Since the beginning of the 20th century, the period (.) punctuation mark has been used as the adverbperiod, indicating “end of story; nothing more to say about it”: “I have never and will never ride a jet ski, period.”

Quote-unquotehas also been around for a while. At first the words more closely followed the structure of the actual quote symbols, with the quoted (or ironically quoted) words appearing betweenquoteandunquote, but it became a compound, similar toso-called,that no longer follows the rules of actual quotation marks

4 Reasons Why Its Better To Marry A Female Teacher

4 Reasons Why Its Better To Marry A Female Teacher

of all professions,teachers make better wife.my reasons are:

Teachers arebetter communicators communication is an essential tip for any relationship. Teachers communicate well with students,fellow teachers and parents.their ability to teach students same thing in many ways makes them able to communicate with different persons

THE KIDS ACADEMICS IS ASSURED………………HAVE you noticed that teachers children do well academically.?this is because teachers extend their job to the home.she asks them to home work and guides them in solving it.your kids can attend same school with their mum

TEACHERS ARE PATIENT……………………………….Agood teacher spendslonger time teaching one topic to slow learners are patient.such person ccan persevere with husband when going get tough.,………she would be able to withstand inlaw insults…


Every husband is proud when his wife comes out to adress the public with good charisma,body language and oratory skills

are you currently dating a teacher? Now grab her tight

students..rating lecturers

The capability of a mechanic is tasted by his ability to cure an ailment. The car owner would praise him and recommend him to other car owners…

Unfortunately,same cant be said of lecturers.there is no system to rate lecturers performance.
Our lecturers keep going on strike protesting for more pay .do they all deserve such pay rise?
Not all lecturers are capable of impacting knowledge on students.so how do we distinguish the efficient lecturers from the quacks.only the student can rate them.

Many professors have poor teaching skills,poor behavior in class and poor relationship with students.some are overstrict and make unrealistic ruules thereby discouraging students from asking questions.
We also have old lecturers whose voice are weak still teaching. They keep agitating to extend their retirement age without asking if it has a negative effect on students.

The students are at the recieving end.they should be given an assesment form to rate each course lecturer giving areas where they want such lecturers to improve on. Such feedback should be forwarded to the higher authorities for analysis.this would enable each departement know its best and worse lecturers

making a child an academic genuis

It is the wish for every parent to have a good,responsible, intelligent child they are proud of. Such parents talk bodly about their ward achievement.

Other parents arent so lucky.they complain day and night about their ward problems.

Parents are so much focused in their carrears that they neglect the fundamental aspect of parenting. They have no time for their kids. They forget that the behavior of a child is largely determined by the parent.

The other day, a dad was complaining about how his son had failed jamb five times . He questioned God “what have i done wrong”?
After series of questions, i discovered the child had been bottom of class righht from his primary school days. The dad never checked if he had done assignment. No home lesson teacher. The child had no academic guidiance whotsoever. Isnt it obvious that the childs failure academically was caused by parents negliigence.

The parents also have a role to play in guiding a child in choosing his carreer. I met a Man who wanted his 6month old baby to read mechanical -engineering.right from when the baby was 4, he bought a toy car for him. As he grew, he bought a toy lorry, toy catterpillar, and later a toy plane. He wanted to make the son interested in moving parts. At 10 years, he got a miniature automaatic car and later a miniature bulldozer. He would watch as the kid dismantles them to pieces in an attempt to rebuild them. Most times, he failed. The dad didnt yell at him. Instead he promised the son he could get him an automatic miniature plane if he took first position. The son finally took first after several attempts. Dad fufilled his promise.
At 14, he spent his junior Waec break as an apprentice in a mechanic workkshop. At 16, he spent his august long break learning welding. When it was time to choose his future carreer in Jamb, he chose Mechanical Engineering.
Imagine if the dad had neglected him all these while,he would have mixed with student rappers and chosen Music instead.

Parents, your ward academic performance lies in your palm. Input = output. What your ward would grow up to be largely depends on the seed you sow.if you want your child to succeed academically,first sow the “book ” in him . At young age give him storry books to read.follow it up by asking questions on the book.ewhen he comes back from school,ensure he does his assignment. Give him a target, -first position. Let him know you are intterested in his academic succes.this will make him take it seriously. Celebrate his performance. Encourage him.

Prroffesors werent made overnight.
