A few years ago, I sat in a living room in the Norwegian town of Skien, surrounded by relatives. As a young man I’d married an international student from Norway, and her family had adopted me. Whenever I was back in Norway, we’d get together for pastries and coffee. I’d lived in Oslo more than […]

Of the diverse ways to study the living world, molecular biology has been most remarkable in the speed and breadth of its expansion. New data are acquired daily, and new insights into well-studied processes come on a scale measured in weeks or months rather than years. It’s difficult to believe that the first complete organi […]
The hereditary nature of every living organism is defined by its genome, which consists of a long sequence of nucleic acid that provides the information needed to construct the organism. We use the term “information” because the genome does not itself perform any active role in building the organism; rather it is the sequence of […]

» A Note to You, the Reader No matter where you are in your life right now—whether you’re currently succeeding at the highest level you’ve ever imagined, or you’re struggling to find your way, there is at least one thing I know we have in common (probably a lot more than one, but one that […]
The training provided to the process operator and to the chemical or process engineer often does not seem to apply in the plant. It’s as if both formal education and training are irrelevant to actual process plant problems. The difficulty lies in an implied assumption made by instructors, professors, textbooks, and training manuals that the […]
It should come as no surprise to anyone who knows the important role process technicians play in modern chemical manufacturing to discover the prominence thatprocess technology programs have taken in U.S. and international community colleges and universities. Still, the controversial question remains, “what is process technology?” Process technology is a field of study offered at […]
