Oil is a world wide commodity. With the rapid expansion of US shale the world markets have seen a decrease in imports by the US. China, Indonesia, and Europe are seeing an economic slowdown and demand for oil has decreased. Supply chains maxed out and prices shite the bed.

I work as an engineer for a service company. When the oil price drops like this, the first to go are the contract WSMs and contract pumpers. These are the easiest to fire and rehire when needed.
The second thing to cutback on is well servicing for lower boe wells. I have an inbox showing can...

I have a ME degree and am currently with WFT. The best advice I can give you is to stay out of operations. It's a giant cluster-frick with no end in sight. Get a position within a product line or the global business unit....

I graduated in mechanical engineering and I'm working as an applications engineer in the oilfield. When I get to design ALS systems it's fun, but I'm thinking about moving into facility engineering or production engineering if I can get hired on. I'm the only engineer and my boss has no clue what ...

| Money Talk|| EE Savings Bond Interest - The Goon on 3/30/14 at 10:04 pm|
I cashed in savings bonds in 2012 for a down payment for a house. I forgot to add the 1099 on my taxes and now the IRS wants taxes on the accumulated interest.
Is the interest considered capital gains for savings bonds? For 2012, I was in the 15% tax bracket and do not have to pay long term cap...

Do no believe those stats. Those numbers are from self reported salaries from graduating seniors. We greatly exaggerated some salaries. I remember seeing 150k for an entry level job that was not removed from the average....

Coursera is really well done. Plenty of videos and most courses have slides available as well. The only annoying thing is you have to enroll and they are only for a certain amount of time. The videos are only uploaded once a week.
I'm reviewing microeconomics, macroeconomics, Emotional Intelli...

The best advice I never received was stop listening to the professors. They care nothing about you and your just time away from research. Your an engineering student; read everything yourself and honestly do your homework plus at least 75% of the end of chapter problems. You have four years to le...

His arrogance is in a world of its own. I left Lsu with my degree and will never return because of him. I tell everyone interested in mechanical engineering to never think of Lsu because of his attitude towards teaching. Seriously, nobody fricking cares where you get your degree. Leave Lsu and yo...

The man is a vile piece of shite. I refuse to ever give to LSU because of him and a few other shitty profs in the ME department. He is the worst part of the ME department at LSU and the entire department would be better if he would have stayed at NASA. Look into taking fluids at UNO and transferri...
