Extracted : how the quest for mineral wealth is plundering the planet

Thursday, 18 September, 2014

@TitleUgo Bardi delivers a sweeping history of the mining industry, starting with its humble beginning when our early ancestors started digging underground to find the stones they needed for their tools. He traces the links between mineral riches and empires, wars, and civilizations, and shows how mining in its various forms came to be one of the largest global industries. He also illustrates how the gigantic mining machine is now starting to show signs of difficulties. The easy mineral resources, the least expensive to extract and process, have been mostly exploited and depleted. There are plenty of minerals left to extract, but at higher costs and with increasing difficulties.

Smart Answers to Stupid Interview Questions

Thursday, September 18, 2014

Other times you show up and your first thought is "I wouldn't work in this toxic waste dump for ten million dollars."The traditional interview format is a big part of the problem. Somebody came up with the standard, lame interview script sixty or seventy years ago and it's still going strong.
