    Mining Engineering – An Important Career Mining Engineering – An Important Career February 12 Authentic Dee Gordon Jersey , 2014 | Author: Carey Bourdier | Posted in Education

    From the many reality TV shows you see this day, it looks as though anybody can just start up a mine and begin extracting minerals. All you need is some basic equipment and voila – you are sure to find gold. The reality however is a bit different and large-scale, professional mining companies employ mining engineers to help them during every step of the mining process.

     

    A mining engineer is a professional who understands the theory and science behind the extraction of minerals, as well as understands the technology needed to retrieve these minerals from a variety of sources. In addition, this person also knows how to process the minerals in a way that maximizes their value. This extraction also must occur with a minimum of damage to the environment so a mining engineer also needs to ensure that the mining operation is safe for the employees as well as the area residents, wildlife, watersheds and flora.

     

    There is a wide variety of minerals being mined in the United States. You will find them in metal forms like gold, copper, cadmium, iron ore, silver and other relevant ones. Industrial minerals are also being mined like gypsum, diatomite Authentic Christian Yelich Jersey , lime, salt, different types of clay, soda ash, zeolites and much more. Aside from the non-fuel minerals, petroleum, coal and natural gas or any other fuel sources are also part of what is being mined in the U.S. With the different types of mining present also come corresponding difficulties and restrictions where only those licensed mining engineers are those able to understand everything, from its minute details.

     

    The first step in the mining process is mineral exploration and here a mining engineer looks to find sources of a particular fuel or mineral and then determine whether or not a profitable mining operation can be created in the area. This includes the creation of a feasibility study, which discusses the pros and cons of creating a mine and makes recommendations about the creation of mine in a specific area.

     

    If you wish to become a mining engineer, you need at least a four-year degree in mining engineering, and for many others graduate-level degrees as well. There are those with surveying and geology degrees. Engineers of this nature should be familiar with a huge amount of technology and with several surveying instruments like theodolite, inclinometer and more instruments for alignment and optical needs.

     

    For those interested in this type of work Authentic Andre Dawson Jersey , several colleges and universities worldwide will be open for you to attend. There are more than a dozen of these institutions in the United States alone which are accredited in mining engineering including the University of Kentucky, the University of Utah, the University of Alaska Fairbanks, The Colorado School of Mines as well as the Missouri University of Science and Technology.

    There once was a time when boxing ruled the sports landscape. The heavyweight champion was the most feared and famous athlete on the planet. Boxers like Joe Louis, Muhammad Ali, George Foreman and Mike Tyson were household names throughout the world.

    However, over the last decade, a sport with history and honor has lost its popularity to upstart sports like Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). The decline of elite fighters in the heavyweight division and the lack of knockouts have led many young men to look for action and excitement in sports like MMA.

    Because of the decline of boxing, mixed martial arts has taken over and has become the sport of choice for the age 18-34 demographic and put the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) on course to join the ranks of elite sports leagues like the National Basketball Association and the National Football League.

    MMA resounds with 18-34 (year olds) because that age range has a shorter attention span than other age groups. They buy video games, fast cars Authentic Adeiny Hechavarria Jersey , cool clothes, all on credit because they want it now. They want instant gratification. In the UFC, the normal bout consists of three five-minute rounds, said long-time fan George Sorrell, 35, of Houston.

    MMA is an intense and evolving combat sport in which competitors use interdisciplinary forms of fighting that include jiu-jitsu, judo, karate, boxing, kickboxing, wrestling and other techniques to their strategic and tactical advantage in a supervised match.

    The Ultimate Fighting Championship began in 1993, but mixed martial arts dates back to the Olympic Games in Athens Wei-Yin Chen Jersey , according to the UFC. About 80 years ago, a Brazilian form of MMA known as Vale Tudo (anything goes) sparked local interest in the sport. Now that interest is felt throughout the world as the UFC now offers 12 to 14 live pay-per-view events annually through cable and satellite providers.

    Recently, a UFC event in Columbus, Ohio attracted more than 19,000 people, the largest audience in North America to witness a mixed martial arts event. More than 4.7 million viewers tuned in to see UFC 75, the first ever title bout on Spike TV. On a Saturday night, it outdrew college football among young men.

    Viewers of UFC 75 saw Quinton Rampage Jackson defeat Dan Henderson to unify the UFC and PRIDE titles in the 205-lb weight-class. Cheick Kong defeated Mirko Cro Cop and Houston Alexander knocked out Alessio Sakara in one minute of the first round. In the title fight, Jackson became the first man to unify a major title with a five-round victory. Judges scored the bout 48-47 and 49-46 twice for Memphis, Tenn. native.
