The following poem was suggested by Maxine Klass-Hoffman:
Maybe it was an Englishman or an Australian
Who was first to call a man a "bloke,"
But historians have no idea as to
Who was first to call loose paper "broke."
It may have been Brian Donkin who worked on the first fourdrinier;
But, whoever he was, he invented a word that most papermakers fear.
If you think about it long and hard,
I am sure that you will agree
That "broke" is the most appropriate word in all of history.
Long ago, it meant only that paper that resulted at a machine break,
But now it means any and all paper the customer will not take.
The best thing to do with broke is to relay it into a beater,
But, too much can cause the remade paper to be an awful lot weaker.
This can cause more breaks to occur
In subsequent operations;
And, if that cycle continues very long,
You will soon be eligible
For unemployment compensations.
- Papermill Poems and Ballads; Francis E. Schiller, 1985
A GUIDE TO
The "Calender of Events"
shows when the on-campus sessions take place and the expected subject matter
for each day. Students can expect the class to get either "behind"
or "ahead" of the plan, depending on what else we do (student presentations, etc.)
- Please note that the "Due
Dates" may be different for on-campus and off-campus students. The general rule is to let
the instructor know as soon as possible if there have to be exceptions (and
keep him well informed about your plans in such cases).
- "Grades" shows the relative
weighting we will assign in different areas. (For more details, see "Syllabus.")
- "Contact Data" tells
how you can contact the instructor.
- "Our Fact Book" is comprised
of written assignments from the BEGINNING of the course; this will be discussed
in the first lectures, and we will work together until your document is ready
to be posted for the rest of the class to see.
- "Our Literature Reviews"
is comprised of written assignments from the second half of the class. You
can see examples from the Fall 1999 class and subsequent classes.
- "Our E-Mail" is where
the instructor will post various E-Mail discussions that may be of interest
to the class as a whole. In your E-mail discussions please either (a) avoid
discussing items that are "company confidential" of (b) indentify
them as such so that the contents won't be shared with the class.
- "Reserve Reading" links
you to the Electronic Reserves system of N.C. State University, and it also
shows a list of everything on our electronic shelf (mostly recent articles
- The "Syllabus" gives
a detailed description of the course, its goals, its content, and its policies.
- "Other Resources" connects
you to the instructor's home page, which is full of links and descriptions
of various opportunities in the field of wet-end chemistry.
I am very happy that
you found this site! Please contact me right away if there are any problems.
Remember to always check "Assignments and reading" and "Course
calender" for your short-term and long-term assignments.
