Job Opportunity Utopia

The story you are about to read is true. The names and places herein have not been changed to protect the innocent. You can check the facts yourself.


Imagine you are driving East on Eight-Mile Road in Warren, Michigan on a pleasant September afternoon to visit a friend. You had quit your job in May so you could enjoy a three-month vacation. But now you are thinking of…


Put your head in the cloud

Posted on March 3, 2011 at 6:17am 3 Comments

Does anyone know what the cloud or cloud computing really means? I have noticed that many alleged experts on the subject do not commit to a rigorous definition. I suspect they are waiting to see what finally precipitates out of the “ether,” which will probably be driven by engineers and CAE users who routinely collaborate around the world.

But, I think I have an idea of what it may comprise. I read Getting Organized in the Google Era, by Douglas C. Merrill and James A. Martin.… Continue

Management by Design drives Leadership Awards

Posted on December 12, 2010 at 8:30am 0 Comments

Undoubtedly, most of you will recall the Insights article I wrote about the subject of Design in the March, 2007 issue. I focused on the concept as it relates to artists, design engineers, and new product designers. However, Design appears to be a popular idea in many other businesses as well, including universities that teach management principles. A case in point: Case Western Reserve University, Weatherhead School of Management, has a program called “Manage by Design.” According to IDEO’s… Continue

Repair technicians need serious training

Posted on November 4, 2010 at 6:00am 7 Comments

We all have things that we must do, but would rather put off indefinitely. At the top of my list is taking my car into the dealer for service, even for a simple oil change. Just the thought of it makes my heart race, my blood pressure rise, and my voice utter squeaky sounds. Why? Because I doubt the mechanic had ever earned an engineering degree. Without the degree, it is not likely he would know how to diagnose a problem that his hand-held vehicle computer scanner could not… Continue

I Deserve a Better Instruction Manual

Posted on October 9, 2010 at 11:30am 14 Comments

When I spend hundreds or thousands of dollars for computers, software, and other complex electronic gear today, I expect to have a complete instruction manual packed along with it. For instance, the first desktop computer I bought in the ‘70s came with two hardcover, 3-ring bound manuals that were remarkably complete. One described the Operating System, and the other was a Basic software handbook. They were clearly written in modern, acceptable English grammar and made sense. The first… Continue

Hi John,

I read your article on designing with thermistors and have a question concerning adding a resistor in parallel to achieve desired resistance at 25C.  If I were to use an off-the-shelf 1k ohm thermistor and wanted to achieve approx. 80 ohms @ 25C, I could use a 82 ohm resistor in parallel correct?  Or would I need to use the resistance equation with know thermistor resistance/temp points?

Good day,

I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and demand it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( for the full details.

Have a nice day.

if you'd think this is a good concept, i'm all ears for your suggestion.


you are driving at 35mph or more, a tailgate driver is approaching less than 15 ft, a pair of red lights (additional visible small lights) mounted in the rear at the eye level flash on to alert the tailgate driver he/she is coming too fast and too close to your vehicle. additional red lights and audio speaker mounted on the dashboard alerting that you are being tailgated. this concept works really well for tailgate drivers as well as for drivers being tailgated. it's the visual and audio warning help prevent tailgaters resulting in serious accident.

though auto makers are coming out cars with the Accident Avoidance System, this simple device costs alot less and can be installed on any type of vehicle.

thanks for the suggestion. i got a working prototype and it's working very well. the next step is marketing it. my marketing model is an aftermarket product sold in automotive stores, online or anywhere there's traffic. i'm a one-man operation, so i don't have the resources or any other means to take it to the next level, mass produce, that is. i'm not an engineer either. i'm an enthusiast who thinks this concept works well in preventing rear end accidents; especially, small vehicles tailing larger ones, such as van, truck, suv, and big rigs.
i'd love to gather a group of engineers/investors to bring this concept into mass production. if you have any idea, i'm all ears. thanks.

I attempted to add an Inventor-Entrepreneur forum but received an eerror message. I sent a trouble report.
