Sisters Go Green at Home
The Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary have educated tens of thousands of students in Metro Detroit, and it might seem easy to conclude that the aging nuns in the order have accomplished most of the work they believe God intended for them. But life is long and the nuns say they believe it is all sacred.

So they have set a new path, emphasizing the environment and scientific discoveries as part of their spirituality. A nationally acclaimed $56 million renovation of their huge motherhouse, which last week received another in a long list of awards from the Environmental Protection Agency, and a newly published booklet are but two examples of their unique fusion of faith, science and the human condition.

For more information, refer to this Detroit News article on the Sisters.

Companies Scramble to Find Engineers for Bustling Energy Industry
Bustling oilfield activity and retiring baby boomers, among other factors, have petroleum outfits large and small trying to hire thousands of engineers, and experts say the trend is expected to extend into the next decade as worldwide energy demand grows.

Management consulting firm Oliver Wyman says roughly eight in 10 global oil and gas companies forecast a shortage of petroleum engineers through at least 2011. The American Petroleum Institute said U.S. energy companies will need at least another 5,000 engineers by decade's end.

For more information, see this Free Press article on the energy engineer shortage.

So you think you're an energy expert?
As oil prices near record highs, U.S. energy major Chevron is inviting people to deal with a potential future energy supply crunch in an online game called Energyville, which uses real data and scenarios to power a city until 2030.

Players in the free game, designed by The Economist Group, can choose from sources such as biomass, natural gas, nuclear and petroleum, with oil shale and hydrogen being added to the mix by 2015. Players can also invest in energy efficiency.

The game can be accessed through the Web site, www.willyoujoinus.com -- an energy discussion forum and a slogan for a Chevron campaign advocating green energy and looking to recruit people.

More info can be found in this Yahoo News article about the energy game.
