I was eight when the Second World War broke out and we evacuated from London. It had a huge impact on my childhood. My dad’s thriving business was destroyed and he became an active member of the Home Guard. Mum buried herself in books to keep the worrying at bay. My wife Vicki says my worst habit is smoking Hoyo De Monterrey cigars. She hates the smell. If the smoke wafts from my office through to our kitchen, I get severely told off. An early brush with death set me on my career path.
Yesterday afternoon, the student team from Indonesia's ITS University clinched the top trophy in the Annual Student Conference Chem-E-Car Competition® finals, winning with a distance of just 2 cm. The target distance was 23.5 m and the required load was 157 ml of water. The second place winner was University of California, Irvine, followed by the teams from University of North Alabama, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, and Cooper Union.
UC Berkeley (pictured above) took home the top prize this year in the 2017 ASC ChemE Jeopardy with 8,000 points. Second and third places went to UT Austin with 7,600 points and University of Florida with 4,300 points. To determine which teams would compete in the final round for the title of 2017 ChemE Jeopardy champion, all competing teams battled it out in three separate groups:Here are some of the questions teams had to answer.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
