After an exciting and informative day at eBay Enterprise and Google, the CWiB seniors geared themselves up for the reception at Hukkster, a company co-founded by a Colgate alumnus. Armed with our knowledge from the day, we welcomed alumni to a two-hour event where we were able to ask alumni questions about their careers, share our own professional experiences with them, and learn from their mistakes as well as their successes. Perhaps my favorite part of the evening was the speed dating activity that took place. I never realized how difficult it was to develop a one-minute summary of who you are, what you have done in the past, and where you want to go. Although I struggled at the beginning, as the end of speed dating drew near, I was able to confidently tell alumni about myself — my professional experiences, my on-campus leadership positions, and my hopes for the future — all within the specified timeframe. Besides for nailing our elevator pitch, speed dating enabled my peers and I to talk with various alumni in different business roles. This gave us a taste for what they do on a daily basis. The alumni that were there had various occupations ranging from, for example, starting a company to consulting to human resources to administrative work. These conversations in and of itself provided the other CWiB seniors and I the chance to grasp a better understanding of the jobs out there. Moreover, these conversations opened the door to the networking world for all of us.

As we have detailed recently , government officials have been closely monitoring the activity in the Yellowstone caldera. Lying beneath the tranquil and beautiful settings of Yellowstone National Park in the US lies an enormous magma chamber, called a caldera. The heat and pressure will reach the threshold, meaning an explosion is inevitable. Food reserves would only last about 74 days, according to the UN , after an eruption of a super volcano, like that under Yellowstone.
And they have devised a risky plan that could end up blowing up in their faces. Wilcox hypothesized that if enough heat was removed, and the temperature of the super volcano dropped, it would never erupt. One possibility is to simply increase the amount of water in the supervolcano. As it turns to steam. They believe the most viable solution could be to drill up to 10km down into the super volcano and pump down water at high pressure.
The circulating water would return at a temperature of around C F , thus slowly day by day extracting heat from the volcano. You would have to give the geothermal companies incentives to drill somewhat deeper and use hotter water than they usually would, but you would pay back your initial investment, and get electricity which can power the surrounding area for a period of potentially tens of thousands of years.
And the long-term benefit is that you prevent a future supervolcano eruption which would devastate humanity. Triggering an eruption by drilling would be disastrous.

The notice comes as the world’s top pork producer struggles to contain the disease with more than 60 outbreaks in 18 provinces since early August, leading to the culling of hundreds of thousands of pigs.
