Dear John,

Motorola inc, the company I worked with for the last fifteen years, was sold at year-end and merged with another cellphones company. As a result, my job was eliminated but I was asked to remain and assist in managing the safety department. The position was temporary, and relocation was required to make it permanent. I am looking forward towards opportunities locally here in Maracaibo. I'm looking for some advice and counsel from people I know and trust.

I'd like to continue to be a senior supervisor in The new cellphones company, I'm good at administration and teamwork. I've also managed production tasks of all volumes. I like being a part of a dynamic organization, and I am looking for that next opportunity.

My earlier job has been exciting, and I'm sure the next opportunity will hold even more promise. I'm glad about the prospect for change and I hope that you can help me make sure it's a positive change. I'd appreciate your thoughts and ideas. Thanks for your help.

Sincerely,

Julio Coronado.

Hello in this article im going to write about Henry Ford because Imagine our world without Cars or any way of transportation. We would have a much healthier world, but, many improvements to our lives would have been impossible to acomplish. He changed our world.

Henry Ford
As the American founder of the Ford Motor Company and father of modern assembly lines used in mass production. His introduction of the Model T automobile revolutionized transportation and American industry. He was a prolific inventor and was awarded 161 U.S. patents. As owner of the Ford Company he became one of the richest and best-known people in the world. He is credited with "Fordism", that is, the mass production of large numbers of inexpensive automobiles using the assembly line, coupled with high wages for his workers. Ford had a global vision, with consumerism as the key to peace. Ford did not believe in accountants; he amassed one of the world's largest fortunes without ever having his company audited under his administration. Henry Ford's intense commitment to lowering costs resulted in many technical and business innovations, including a franchise system that put a dealership in every city in North America, and in major cities on six continents. Ford left most of his vast wealth to the Ford Foundation but arranged for his family to control the company permanently.

Reading an article UNIT 2

hello how are you friends i was surfing the net and i found a interesting article that i would like to share with you.
Enjoy..
Microsoft Promises New, Fluffier Version of Windows

By Ashlee Vance

Steve Ballmer, Microsoft’s chief executive, has hit the European press circuit in full-on tease mode. He’s talking up a new version of the Windows operating system that will cater to so-called “cloud computing” technology, where people use software that’s running in a data center rather than on their local machine.

Mr. Ballmer has mentioned this operating system, dubbed Windows Cloud, at events in London and Paris. The name-dropping comes ahead of Microsoft’s Professional Developers Conference later this month in Los Angeles.

So what exactly is Windows Cloud? Well, Microsoft won’t budge on exact details just yet.

But Dave Cutler, one of the company’s top software engineers, has spent years working on a project code-named Red Dog that some suspect will serve as the underpinning for the new operating system. Mr. Cutler has a knack for developing sophisticated code, and he may have come up with an operating system tailored to this notion of distributing software across thousands of servers and letting customers tap into all that horsepower from their home or office computers.

Google’s vast data centers rely on a modified version of the open-source Linux operating system and the MySQL database. By going with open-source software, Google can tweak code to suit its needs. In particular, Google has been able to create lightweight versions of Linux and MySQL that spread well across myriad machines.

Microsoft may now have taken a similar approach with Windows and its own SQL Server database by developing a thinner, faster version of Windows that server makers like Dell and Hewlett-Packard could offer with their systems. Presumably the new version of Windows would also make use of Microsoft’s server virtualization software, which today lets customers run many applications on a single physical system, and will soon let them move those applications around from server to server at will.

“Just as we have an operating system for the PC, for the phone, and for the server, we need a new operating system that runs in the Internet,” Mr. Ballmer said during a speech in France on Thursday. “I bet we’ll call it Windows something. We’re going to announce it in four weeks. We might even have a trademark by then. So, for today I’ll call it Windows Cloud. And Windows Cloud will be a place where you can run arbitrary applications up in the Internet. . .”

I’ve done a search through Microsoft’s trademarks, and, as Mr. Ballmer indicated, there doesn’t appear to be a name for the software.

Fluffy Windows, anyone?

INTERVIEW UNIT 1

Hi how are you people, the other day i was with my friend gerardo gutierrez and we were talking about engineering and he tell his point of view about Engineering.

I think that engineering is a profession devoted to designing, constructing, and operating the structures, machines, and other devices of industry and everyday life.
I like the industrial engineering because There are a number of things industrial engineers do in their work like make processes more efficient, to make products more manufacturable and consistent in their quality, and to increase productivity. If you want to study this career you most study a lot and be good at maths, also you have to have skills:You need to be responsable, intelligent, You must be capable of handling sressful situations and and have quick Thoughts

I think that the most dificult that i’ve had is to understand that engineering it’s not a simple carrer it’s a vocation.


After graduating i’d like to work in a big company and be a successful engineer.
I’d like to work in a big company and have the opportunity to realize studies in another country

Industrial Engineering it’s a great carrer and engineers can chage the world.

well thats all for today thanks for visited me.
