no wonder we hired Hunter Lochmann
Not sure of the allowability of job postings on here, but here ya go:
My Tier 1 Automotive supplier company in Sterling Heights is looking to add an entry level engineer or two. Don't get your hopes too high, as the first 2-3 years is just going to be babysitting existing product to free yours truly up to do new development. That can be boring, so please don't contact me unless your ready for 2-3 years of being bored (simple drawing changes, paperwork, etc.) before you get to have fun and do real engineering.
Anyhow, you'll probably start in the $50k-60k range. So, if you're interested shoot me a resume at my gmail account. It is iworcester.
I was perusing the IGN.com site and came across this little tidbit in the 'Movie' section of the site: Scream 4 is filming in Ann Arbor, MI.
Was anyone aware of this? Any would-be Olivier's on the board (and in Ann Arbor) planning on trying to get a part as an extra?
My brother and I are going to be in Cheyenne Wyoming for the day tomorrow with nothing to do. Anyone on here have any ideas/suggestions? Neither of us has been there before, and we're looking to kill time. I don't think we're planning on doing anything super active (hiking, etc.) unless there's something we really need to see.
Also, don't forget the bobblethon!

Talking about how Chevy plans to offer an 8 year warranty on the battery in the Volt.
I took an Internal Combustion Engines class at Michigan (ME 438) a couple of years ago, and a main concern of the professor was the battery life/robustness over the lifecycle of the vehicle. His example was laptop batteries. They often have crappy lifecycles - they last 6 hours when you buy the laptop, within a couple of years, 3 hours.
Based on this example it seems like hybrid batteries will be similar, they're both pretty advanced battery technology, and i know laptop batteries are getting better, but I think that a diminished range is a real issue with hybrids/electric vehicles moving forward.
Anyone (EEs? CSEs?) know why GM is ready to stand behind these batteries (the single most expensive part of the vehicle) this long? If battery technology is this advanced, I think electric cars might really be the way to go in the future (although you can't get a stick shift hybrid... so that's a no-go for me)
