Stanford Design ‘EXPE’

Stanford’s Mechanical Engineering Design Group invites you to join us as we celebrate our students’ creative work in design research, design practice, engineering, and manufacturing.

According to Mr. Lokesh Kumar Thakur (Author), Design: Design, “the book is focused on the design and development of a high- energy impact wear device. A comprehensive illustration on designing the newest version of the impact wear tester is explained in detail in order to exhibit how theoretical, virtual and experimental analyses could be integrated while designing a mechanical system.”

Anxiety, among young people on college campuses

According to Scheffler, he is Berkeley’s faculty since 1981, “It is what I am calling a ‘new epidemic,’ and that the data supports using that term, on college campuses. We need a heightened national awareness of this very serious epidemic. Anxiety has really very dire consequences for these students.
he first began thinking about student anxiety 10 years ago, when he looked out at the 100 students in his lecture hall and saw faces stricken with worry.

More than half the students were not looking at me, they were looking at their phones or their computers. I told everyone to turn their phones off and put their computers away. I had four or five students who were so addicted, they could not do it. I actually had to go and take their phones away from them.

I said to myself, ‘You know, something’s going on here. That was the beginning. And then I watched for several years. I want the faculty and the university leadership here at Berkeley and across the country to know that this epidemic is out there, and they need to understand it”.

According to social psychologist, Jonathan Haidt to discuss his book ‘The Coddling of the American Mind’,” How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure. much of American society is in the grip of a culture of safety that prevents young people from learning how to contend with challenges, difficulties, and contradictions”.

Before the year 1998 two decades ago we were wondering what is the dome-like new building is for. Soon we figure it out the old ‘Tech Museum’ shifted in the new building.
They open the doors on mango and azure building to inspire innovators.
It is been 20 years now. The ‘Tech Museum’ is growing every day. We use the membership to learn new Bay area technology:)

California is drought-free now

According to the National Drought Mitigation Center,”California is drought-free. Storms continued to pile on snowpack and fill California’s water reservoirs over the past week, pulling even more of the state out of drought”.

We have seen hail in the year 1997. After 22 years again in 2019, hail was reported in San Jose, California. I barely remember, I guess in the month of June 1997(Don’t remember the month).
I am not exactly sure. We were talking with our friends about weather in the Cupertino. That the thing I remember.

Two or three more times we had hail storm in between 1997 and 2019.

The Flintstone House

According to Stark Insider and CBS local ,” The Flintstone House, an iconic fantasy land located just HILLSBOROUGH, south of San Francisco.

Owner Florence Fang chats with Loni Stark about re-visiting her youth and the joy of the famed Flintstones television series, the 5 massive dinosaurs towering over the backyard, and why there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to the mushroom”.
There’s trouble in Bedrock. The infamous “Flintstone house” in Hillsborough has gone through some visible changes over the last year and a half, but some neighbors and city officials are not happy with the new additions.

“I don’t like the way she did the back yard, this is Hillsborough, not an amusement park,” said area resident Kathy Park, who lives down the street.

History and Birthplace of “Silicon Valley”

We didn’t know before they started construction. Nobody used to pay attention to San Antonio shopping mall. It was just a residential place more than the shopping mall.
We used to go for the pumpkin patch or Christmas tree lot.
It was the huge empty parking lot with the side street had a sign “Silicon Valley”.
When construction people started building something. Everybody was guessing what it will be.
We knew what it will be but, exactly what kind of office, hotel, cinema.
The scientists and engineers who worked at 391 San Antonio Road in Mountain View, California, laid the technological and cultural foundations for today’s Silicon Valley.
