James engineers a global career

German-based civil engineer James Daniell credits his student experience at the University of Adelaide for helping him to adjust to life and work in Europe. The combination of “world-class degrees, extracurricular activities and a multicultural campus” prepares students for a global career, he says.

Name: James Edward Daniell

University degree details, including year of graduation:
Bachelor of Engineering (Civil and Structural). 1st Class Hons 2006.
Bachelor of Science (Geology and Geophysics) 2006. Honours Alumni University Medal 2007.

Details of any scholarships received/awarded?
General Sir John Monash Award 2009.
MEEES (Erasmus Mundus) EU Scholarship 2007.
George Murray Scholarship 2007.
John Crampton Travelling Scholarship 2006.
Bardavcol Scholarship in Civil and Environmental Engineering 2004-05.

How have these scholarships helped you achieve your goals?
During university, the Bardavcol Scholarship provided work experience in civil engineering construction and funding to aid my study costs. After university, a number of scholarships allowed me to achieve my goals of studying abroad to undertake a Masters and PhD in Earthquake Engineering, Engineering Seismology and Socioeconomic Loss Estimation for Natural Disasters. They provided me with the funding to study at best locations in the world in this field of study. The General Sir John Monash Award has also allowed me to meet a diverse range of world leaders in various subjects allowing for cross-discipline brainstorming. Through this brainstorming I have been able to apply ideas from other fields into natural disaster research.

What have you been doing since graduation?
Since graduation, I worked for Santos Pty. Ltd as a Quantitative Reservoir Interpretation Geophysicist in Adelaide, Australia in 2007, before undertaking a Erasmus Mundus Masters in Earthquake Engineering and Engineering Seismology at University Joseph Fourier in Grenoble, France and also the University of Pavia, Italy. I also met my now wife, Maren, while studying in Italy!

The American Way of War

by justyouraveragecitizen

By Walden Bello
By Washington's logic, firecrackers should now be going off everywhere, as the counter-terror crusaders zero in on Osama bin Laden's hideout in Tora Bora. However, Europe is cool, there is apprehension throughout the South, and outright despondency blankets much of the Arab and Muslim world.
The reasons are obvious: at least 4000 dead, a large number of them civilians, four million refugees, a return to tribal chaos with the dismemberment of central authority. What bin Laden and his organization did was horrific and inexcusable--but to do this to a country in the name of justice? Once again, the Americans have destroyed the town in order to save it
