Reading & Writing Assignment

Readings Selected:
The readings that I selected for this assignment were: “Abrasive Blasting for Mold Remediation”, by Nick Gromicko and Ethan Ward and “Adjustable Steel Columns”, by Nick Gromicko and Kenton Shepard
Without wishing to curry favor with Nick, who was the lead author on both of these articles, I found them to be clear, concise, informative and refreshingly void of the confusing technical jargon that some authors find necessary to justify their high station in life.
While I was heavily involved with the “great Texas mold fiasco” of 2001 through 2003, I was not aware of abrasive blasting as a technique for mold remediation. Similarly (and more embarrassingly), it had never occurred to me to inspect screw-jacks very closely. I had presumed that they were fulfilling their function if they were not distorted. I’ll inspect more closely in future.
