The People Make The Place

By Mary Mertes, PRIER Intern

When thinking of the most awkward experiences one might have on the job, I’ll bet that going to a sexual harassment seminar with your father isn’t on most people’s lists. I’m lucky enough to have it on mine. For most teenagers, moving away from home is something they look forward to, to get away from their parents. Maybe I’m just different. There’s a plethora of things I could be doing with my spring break, I chose the one that lets me see my dad at lunch every day.

But it is interesting to learn where these standards originated. Two common units of measure we frequently use are water flow in gallons/minute (GPM) and pressure in pounds/in2 (psi).
