The career fair will begin on Sept. 13 and conclude on Sept. 15, and will include volunteer opportunities, mobile apps and workshops to increase students chances to network and find work opportunities. Over the course of those three days, approximately 500 employers will attend the career fair to interview thousands of students, Career Services Coordinator Megan Foster said. Foster made reservations, planned new activities for students attending the career fair and reached out to recruiters. One of those recruiters, Vincent Bond, regional manager of college relations for Macys, has come to Penn State to interview students for the past few years, and will attend next weeks career fair. Bond said he led workshops the week prior to the career fair for students who wanted the extra preparation. Representatives from other employers in attendance next week include Pepsi, the U.S. Army, the U.S. Navy, the U.S.

In this case, the team went hunting for extended extreme precipitation events using three-day totals. They widened their search from southern Louisiana to include the rest of the US Gulf Coast to avoid, figuratively, missing changes in the forest for focusing on one tree. Intense precipitation here can come from several different types of weather systems, which makes this a little tricky. There are tropical low pressure systems, but also fronts when the jet stream dips far enough south, and other conditions that cause moist surface air to rise and cool. The researchers analyzed simulations from two climate models that run with exceptionally fine spatial resolution, as those do a better job with this kind of weather. They looked at simulations run with climate forcings like CO2 and solar activity matching the historical changes since 1860, as well as baseline simulations with forcings permanently stuck in 1860 (or another year). If you pick any individual weather station, the probability of experiencing an extreme event like the one southern Louisiana saw a few weeks ago in a given year is in the neighborhood of 1-in-550. The probability of seeing an event like that somewhere in the Gulf Coast region in a given year comes down to about 1-in-30. But all of the weather station data show that these probabilities are increasing over time as extreme events have gotten stronger. According to the model simulations, thats what we would expect to see in the region as the climate warms. They show that a rainfall event like the recent one is at least 1.4 times as likely (and probably closer to double) as it was in 1860. That means a 100-year rain event drops to at least a 70-year eventwith a new, stronger 100-year event taking its place.http://www.blueridgefilmfest.com/davidlopezcity/2016/09/13/professional-tips-on-rational-products-in-vocation/
