Canada offers a wealth of opportunities in a range of well-paid and highly skilled roles. Shortages of skilled labor have led the Federal Government to develop a Fast-Track entry system for individuals with high-priority skills. This makes the country a great choice for those looking to build a new life and career. This list looks at some of the best opportunities for 2017-2018 based on the Federal Government's list of in-demand occupations. Cardiology technologists Cardiology technologists are in demand in Canada as the result of the large aging population. The highest average hourly wage for a cardiology technologist can be found in Calgary at $44.27 per hour. The lowest average hourly wage for a cardiology technologist can be found in Halifax at $20.85 per hour. The significant number of the jobs available in this sector can be found in health care and social assistance. To work as a cardiology technologist in Canada (with the exception of Quebec) a technologist must be registered with the Canadian Society of Cardiology Technologists.

Currently I am working as a project engineer in a private company at Muscat (Sultanate of Oman). I want to do Masters from Canada in Transportation Engineering or Mining Engineering. My percentage in B.tech is 64% only and I am not eligible in most of the universities except Alberta University and Manitoba University. I got to know about some colleges like Mohawk college, Fanshawee College, Seneca Colege as they are providing my interest degree but they are providing advanced diploma which requires only 12th class as their eligible criteria. So my B.tech degree is of no use? If I opt for Project Management (2yrs course in some universities), will it help? I want to shift to Canada permanently as I do not like India (my home country) as its getting politically worse day by day. Your suggestions are most welcome. Thank you.

Speaker: Prof. Leontios J. Hadjileontiadis (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki) Title: Emotions - Action Representation - Music Liking and EEG: An advanced signal processing perspective towards innovative human assistive technology Date: Thursday, April 07, 2016 Abstract: The proposed lecture will present advanced achievements in the field of affective computing towards more enhanced human-computer-interaction interfaces, presenting advanced signal processing techniques and implementations applied to Electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings. In particular, the way emotions are 'reflected' in our brain signals, the way actions (both in explicit and implicit way, e.g., gestures in music) are combined with internal representations in our brain (involving mirror neuron system activation), and how our brain decides if it likes or not the perceived music will be presented and discussed. Moreover, potential implementations of the findings in the field of human assistive technology will be shown, including innovative ways of pain management, Alzheimer's and Parkinson’s community support. Biosketch: Prof. Leontios J.

This video is a University of Manitoba Space Applications and Technology Society (UMSATS) entry into the NASA International Space Apps Challenge of 2014. The video describes our design concept for how to run a competition in which university or college students build CubeSats to accomplish specified requirements. Our design ideas on what a CubeSat Competition should be include: 1) A set of requirements on how the competition should be run or organized. The core idea is that competition needs to focus on serving the student's needs, and matching it with the educational goals. 2) That gaming should be a core element of how the teams manage their development. We want to replace Gantt charts with Games. 3) We provide first hand experience on what works and what doesn't for such competitions. 4) A wiki space to hack together collaboratively to make a better way to run such CubeSat Competitions. 5) That all the designs and solutions from each annual competition cycle shall be made open source to accelerate space systems development.

Muhammad Shaikh, born in India, part of the Muslim exodus to Pakistan in 1947, came to Canada in 1959. Trained as an engineer, he worked in many different fields but spent most of his working life as a highschool teacher in Scarborough, part of metropolitan Toronto. Teaching, he says, is his true calling. Today, Muhammad lives in Peterborough. In this video, he talks about his early career, starting work related to his engineering degree from Pakistan in Winnipeg, moving on to the mining town of Thompson, Manitoba, and then to Montreal where he earned a B.A. taking night courses at Concordia University. Since schools in Montreal were all confessional, he could not find work as a teacher there, which is how he finally ended up in Scarborough, Ontario. Told with humour and compassion, don't miss this second video featuring Muhammad Sheikh's immigrant story.

http://www.icr.org/article/7068/288 Researchers discovered eight well-manufactured throwing spears in an Ice Age coal deposit near Schöningen, Germany. They are calling these the oldest human tools. What can forensic science reveal about the people who made them? Portions of the Schöningen open pit coal mine were set aside for archaeological work decades ago. In 1997, Hartmut Thieme of the Lower Saxony State Office for Heritage described three spears that he found in the Helmstedt lignite coal mine.1 They were constructed to such exacting specifications that replicas of them performed as well as modern javelins in throwing tests. The site also contained fossils of fruit, other vegetation, birds, fish, and thousands of mammal bones representing rhinoceros, elephant, cows, red deer, many smaller mammals, and mostly horses—including many horse bones with cut marks from butchery. Such an assemblage of various animals and human remains clearly indicate that a severe Ice Age storm washed them into a low-lying area and quickly covered them with mud.2 Indeed, it had all been submerged for centuries until engineers drained the area to expose and mine its coal. Archaeologists from the University of Tubingen found eight additional spears from the Schöningen coal mine. They appear to have been mass produced. Like javelins, their center of gravity was balanced toward the front of each spear. The news release said, "The spears and other artifacts as well as animal remains found at the site demonstrate that their users were highly skilled craftsmen and hunters, well adapted to their environment—with a capacity for abstract thought and complex planning comparable to our own."3 The additional spears corroborate the significance of the 1997 spears, which had rewritten evolutionary notions of early Europeans as brute scavengers, not "highly skilled craftsmen." Archaeology magazine reported, "They suggest that early man was able to hunt, and was not just a scavenger."4 The earliest direct or indirect evidence of tools shows every indication of human-like expertise in manufacture. For example, people butchered animals in Africa long before these German spears were used.5 Ancients ground grain and decorated baskets.6 And the earliest religious temple was of the highest quality, currently under excavation in Turkey.7 If human evolution were true, one would expect to find that the earliest ape-like humans produced clumsy efforts, not the refined tools and artifacts known around the world. Therefore, it comes as no surprise to Bible believers that early human artifacts such as well-formed throwing spears show that ancient humans were fully human.8 References Thieme, H. 1997. Lower Paleolithic hunting spears from Germany. Nature. 385 (6619): 807. The coal deposits occur in sequence of six, indicating perhaps six storms with catastrophic water movement.

Although evolutionists overestimated the ages of these artifacts due to uniformitarian assumptions, these spears could probably be some of the earliest human artifacts. Since they were found in coal deposits associated with the Ice Age, and since people required some time to migrate from Babylon to modern Germany, this places these artifacts relatively soon after the Flood, which is roughly dated to 2,500 B.C. by standard Bible chronology.

http://goldstocktrades.com/blog Even though the precious metal and junior mining sector have been in decline for the past few years, there have been a few exceptions due to the high quality of both the management team and the asset. One of the areas of strength has been in a relatively unknown metal known as niobium. What is niobium and why is it so important? Niobium is critical for high strength low weight steel that is required in the automobile, infrastructure and aviation industries. Niobium prices have increased steadily over the past 40 years, but may move higher at a faster rate as niobium demand is increasing due to its ability to reduce consumption of energy. A little niobium decreases the weight and increases fuel efficiency. One of the junior niobium miners, Niocorp (NB.V or NIOBF) has been one of the best performers on the TSX Venture over the past year. The main catalyst was attracting top notch CEO Mark Smith who brought Molycorp's (MCP) Mountain Pass Rare Earth Deposit into production. Mark has decades of experience of bringing mines into production. Mark put his money where his mouth is and bought a large position over the past year in Niocorp which is developing North America's largest and highest grade undeveloped niobium deposit near Elk Creek, Nebraska. Mark has put together a quality team to advance the project towards a Bankable Feasibility Study. Niocorp is currently drilling a 3 stage program to move the resource from inferred to measured and indicated. The recent drilling program has been a huge success hitting some of the highest grade assays ever recorded at the project. Remember over 53,000 meters have been drilled on the property to date, but since the new management team has come on board the assays have been impressive. Major players should begin noticing the 3-4% grade material. As Mark Smith, CEO of Niocorp said in a recent news release, "…these latest results show the extensive continuity of material in excess of 1 per cent grade, furthering our commitment to confirming this deposit as truly world class in grade and size." It appears the grades are higher at depth where the deposit remains open. In addition, there are additional targets to the southeast and northwest of the deposit. Concurrently, a major metallurgical program is underway at two well known research labs at SGS Canada and Hazen. SRK Consulting has already initiated preliminary work on the feasibility study. In conclusion, Niobium demand has been increasing for the past 40 years and should accelerate as demand is increasing for high strength low weight steel. Niocorp could be one of the largest suppliers of niobium in North America and take advantage of the increased consumption of niobium. Recent results both with the drill and on the metallurgy could attract significant strategic financial partners on this project in the coming months. Mr. Smith is well recognized in the mining community, having recently served as CEO and Director of Molycorp, Inc., where he was instrumentally involved in taking that from a private company to a publicly traded producing mine. Prior to that, Mr. Smith was the President and Chief Executive Officer of Chevron Mining Inc. and managed the real estate, remediation, mining and carbon divisions of Unocal Corporation for over 22 years. During his tenure with Chevron Mining Inc., Mr. Smith also served as a Director of Companhia Brasileira de Metalurgia e Mineração (CBMM), part of the Moreira Salles Group, a private company that currently produces approximately 85% of the world supply of Niobium. Mr. Smith has a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering from Colorado State University and a Juris Doctor cum laude from Western State University, College of Law. He currently sits on the Board of Avanti Mining Inc. Disclosure: I own Niocorp and they are a website sponsor.

"Two Joined Hands" was our device when our banner first unfurled, Hands that knew the feel of tools and helped to build a world. Two hands became a million hands and fashioned down the years The machines that make the world go round, The ships and planes and the diesel trains, The weaving frames and the building cranes, We are the engineers! We tamed the fire and harnessed metals, learned a thousand skills; Our hands have made the tools men use in factories, mines and mills. Ours the hands that throw the switch that puts the world in gear, That make the plows that turn the soil, And the ships and planes and the diesel trains, The weaving frames and the building cranes, We are the engineers! Jails and transportation hulks faced union pioneers Police and spies at every turn, a world of doubt and fear… Our unions sprang from poverty from hunger, blood and tears But we fought the cruel laws and when We lost we rose to fight again, For the right to work and live like men, We are the engineers! We've stamped our feet in the morning queues, known unemployment's toll, Known hands go soft in idleness, for a slow death on the dole. The rusty lathe and the silent factory mark the hungry years; And the grass growing green on the shipyard floor, And the endless beat of marching feet Men demanding the right to eat And work as engineers! And we, the youngest engineers, now march to claim our rights; For we have learned that nothing's ever won without a fight. Every battle fought and won reveals a new frontier, And a world to be won by those who build The ships and planes and the diesel trains, The weaving frames and the building cranes, We are the engineers!

September 25, 2018, Winnipeg, Canada This video highlights the success of the YouthCEO program and extends a thank you to all of the companies that participated in this year's initiative. The Youth CEO program is a Business Council of Manitoba (BCM) initiative launched in 2017 to support Indigenous, new Canadian and underserved youth. The program aims to provide youth with training and work experience with Council companies, expose youth to the opportunities that exist in the business community, and expose companies and business leaders to its future workforce. On July 16, Conviron hosted sixteen participants from the Youth CEO program at its headquarters in Winnipeg. The youth participants and BCM’s Vice President, Kevin Chief, toured Conviron’s manufacturing facility to learn more about Conviron’s business as well as the processes and technology behind Conviron’s plant growth chambers, rooms and control systems. “This is the second year Conviron has the opportunity to host students in the Youth CEO program. These students make up a very bright and talented group of individuals and I am delighted that Conviron can again play a role in introducing them to the world of business”, said Steve Kroft, Conviron’s President & CEO. Conviron also had the opportunity to host one student from the group for an in-depth work experience over the course of one week. Following a week of hands on experience, the participants shared with the other students what they have learned from their work placement at Conviron.

Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. Great things happen when our brightest minds have the freedom to explore. When we pursue our unique interests, the resulting collective capacity for innovation is limitless. The issues of the future will require these creative solutions as the need to build connections between people, nations and disciplines has never been greater. The topic of ‘human-robot interaction’ will still be a hot one in 100 years. The tools may change but the problems, such as “How do people and robots get along?” will remain the same. Questions surrounding what robots should do; and how we can share, operate safely, communicate, take turns, teach robots, and generally get along together will continue to be problems requiring solutions. The efforts we make to establish the ‘rules of engagement’ now will certainly be foundational to our future relationships. Moderated by Marc Parlange – Dean and Professor, UBC’s Faculty of Applied Science
