  • How much does it cost to install a Tire Pressure Monitoring System in a Canadian Vehicle (from scratch)?

    To import my vehicle (2013 hyundai) to the US I need to install a TPMS. I was just wondering if anyone had an idea (ball-park) of what this would cost installed (parts + labor)?

    Thanks,

  • High eosinophil count? details below.?

    in 2010 I had my blood work done and results were Eos 5 percent. Now (2015) they show Eos 12 percent with total Eos count at 0.88*10^9/L which is high. I'm just wondering if this is on the "normal" side of high and if I should be concerned?

    P.S. all other blood work (which was extensive by the way as I'm about to leave the country) was great, including normal total WBC.

    Any insight is appreciated!

  • Finance wizards! Pay off debt (LOC) vs. Mortgage?

    Should anyone with consumer debt (e.g. LOC) try to pay off their mortgage quicker (shorter amortisation period)? The way I look at it is (a) from a cash flow standpoint a longer amortisation period = more money in my picket, and (B) from an interest standpoint, mortgage rates are less the LOC rates and they're compounded semi annually as opposed to daily.

    In fact. What is the benefit to paying off mortgage singer at all even if you doing have debt? The opportunity cost of paying off your mortgage simply does not meet the market (what you could be earning through investment).

    Any finance wizards out there who see flaw in my logic?

  • Chemical Engineering or Environmental Engineering?

    Hi,

    Any insight would be appreciated on this issue. I am deciding between Chemical and Environmental Engineering as a second degree (first degree was in Chemistry). I have read in places that Enviro. Eng. is too interdisciplinary for a beginning engineering degree (i.e. better as a masters on top of Civil and/or Chemical Engineering), however, I feel as if with my Chemistry degree I have a decent foundation in the hard sciences (not engineering but I will also learn that with Environmental Engineering).

    I am just wondering if anyone with any experience in this arena can weigh in on this situation.

    Thanks,

  • How much will it cost to finish a basement?

    Hi everyone,

    My girlfriend and I are looking to buy our first house and the one which we put an offer on has an unfinished basement - there is approximately 1,000 sq feet of living space and good head-room for a drop-ceiling or dry-walling.

    I'm wondering, granted its basically a square-shaped blank-canvas. What will it cost (very approximately as I know this will vary) to frame, dry-wall, and finish (including flooring) 4 rooms - a rec-room, a bathroom, a bedroom and a mechanical room for the furnace, etc?

    Ball-park guesses are fine, I really just want a rough idea.

  • Advice please on grad school or starting over - Engineering vs. Chemistry?

    Hi Everyone,

    First of all I know these type questions are hard to answer not being the person in question. However, I appreciate any advice I can get on this matter.

    I have completed my B.Sc. Chemistry and realize what I want to do is Chemical Engineering. There are a few options I could do - (a) write exams and try to get EIT certification, (b) do a masters and try to get EIT certification simultaneously, or (c) start over (well I would have about 40 credit hours to transfer but with the density of ChemE programs it would still be 4 years). I believe the first two options would really limit my options for careers as I would be trying to explain the situation and competing with people with B.Eng. degrees who went the straight forward route.

    I am not old by any means but I still wondering if the 4 years would be worth it to go back. I know this is what I want to do so I don't need any "is ChemEng really what you want to do" answers, however the $ is an advantage and the higher earning potential would make going back to school more feasible. Any advice??

  • Major in Environmental Science OR Chemistry? Help?

    Hi everyone,

    I am 3 courses away from the degree requirements for either of these degrees - ES or Chem (but not close to a double major as a lot of my chem classes would be in the ES degree and I would be "double dipping" - I.e. DM isn't a option).

    I'm just wondering - what has more jobs, what pays better (both starting and what one can aspire to).

    Thanks

  • Is it worth it to get my B.Eng.? Or exam route, tough sitation, any help is appreciated?

    Hi Evehryone, I need some advice so any input would be great.

    I have just finished my B.Sc. Chemistry and have taken enough credits to transfer 42 credit hours into a B.Chem. Eng. program at a good school close to me. However, I have just graduated and have landed quite a good job - $52 per year (not bad after graduation) - after knowing this you may wonder why I would go back to school. I want to be an engineer for personal reasons, not the higher earning potential (although that part is nice).

    Anyways, in my province and in most parts of the country (Canada) I believe a B.Sc. Chemistry will suffice to allow one to write equivalency exams to become an E.I.T. (this may take a few exams but from what i understand it can be done). So my question is, should I go this route while working over the next few years, while making money and have what it takes to land a first engineering job. Or, should I work, then go back to school and get my B.Eng.

    Also you may be wondering why I wouldn't just go back to school now if this is what i really want to do. The point is, I have a good opportunity now, which I enjoy and I don't want to burn any bridges - and who knows, I just started, there is growth, maybe this will be what I want to do.

    The pros and cons I see are:

    B.Eng. - a lot easier way to get P.Eng. (i.e. no exams, with exception of the final one after experience)

    Exams - work while attaining what I need

    My question is, after getting my E.I.T. does it matter to employers what route i took to get there? After all I would have to write about 10 exams in core disciplines in which my chemistry degree did not give me as they pertain to engineering and thus in my mind i will have everything a B.eng. would have. What do you guys think?

    Any answer is a good one!

  • Help Please. I have a suspicious mole and the doctor froze it off with liquid Nitrogen instead of biopsy - nor?

    Is this normal. He said it was one that looked suspicious but didn't think it was anything to worry about, froze it, and sent me on my way. If it were suspicious shouldn't he have biopsied it? Wouldn't this effectively remove the mole but perhaps not the cancer (theoretically)? And also, if it were cancerous wouldn't we have lost our biopsy sample? Help please

  • Junior Environmental Consulting. What would be some bonus qualifications?

    I will be finishing up my B.Sc. Chemistry this year, I want to get into environmental consulting and was wondering what you guys think would be some bonus qualifications. I was thinking 40 hour HAZWOPER, WHIMIS, first aid, etc (but I'm thinking of things that relate directly to environmental stuff related to what I've been doing - chemistry). Does anyone have any other good ideas?

  • 2 word answer required! What is a better degree, Environmental Science or Chemistry?

    I want to get into the field of Environmental Chemistry/Environmental Consulting. Which is the better undergraduate degree? I want to tally up all the answers I get so no need for detail (unless you want to), just simply "Environmental Science" or "Chemistry" will do. Thanks in advance.

  • Where do Environmental/Geological Chemists work?

    Hey guys, I'm one semester away from finishing my chemistry degree with a minor in geography. I have a good job set up for 16 months post-graduation, but after this I would like to work on a second degree or a masters - possibly hydrology, geology, earth-science something of that sort. What I want to work towards is my P.Geo. (professional geochemist designation) as this gets you further in the job field, but I was just wondering in order to work as a geochemist/environmental chemist in order to get the experience required for this designation do I need to work in the field and away from home lots like geologists, or, are jobs more like chemists jobs (indoors at uni, private, or govt' labs?). Anyone know?
