Engineer-in-Training (Passing a Necessary, Open-Book, Undergraduate Exam in Order

Through online education, computer programs, and books, I have done a
great deal of studying on a wide variety of subjects. They include Science (Genetics, Astronomy, Anatomy, Microbiology, Biochemistry,
and Biology); Technology (Solar Energy, Meteorology, Oceanography, Geology, and Building Trades); Liberal Arts (Philosophy,
Literature, history, the Bible, and Fine Arts); Business (Accounting); and Law. I am also interested in Futuristic (non-intrusive/invasive)
Below are four papers that I have written on varying subjects. The first is on
the unification of combustion resulting directly from my Ph.D. thesis.
The second paper is on the nature of coal combustion. The work behind this paper
was at the U.S. Bureau of Mines.
The third one is a college course term paper on Wolves at Yellowstone Park. This
emphasizes my concern for Nature.
The fourth paper is on overpopulation of the human race. While not the best of
my writings, I feel it is the most important to get out than any of the others.
