10 Major Engineering Challenges of the Next Decade
Upgrading the sagging U.S. Infrastructure - Engineering Challenges of the Next Decade | Elsevier
1. Upgrading the sagging U.S. infrastructure. The American Society of Civil Engineers gives our aging infrastructure a D+ grade and estimates that $3.6 trillion dollars must be invested by 2020 to bring our roads, bridges, water, electrical and sewage systems to proper safe working order.

2. Educating first world engineers to understand how to solve third world problems. The Renewable Resources Journal reports that the world’s population will grow by 2 billion over the next two decades, 95% of this in developing or underdeveloped countries. Engineers must learn new ways to solve problems in these countries.

3. Promoting green engineering to improve sustainability and reduce the carbon footprint in manufacturing. According to the U.S. Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, manufacturing in the U.S. produced 19,237 trillion BTUs and 1,071 million metric tons of carbon dioxide.

4. Identifying viable alternative energy sources. The contributions to our energy production from renewables and other new fuel sources are growing at 6% per year according to BP and will contribute 45% of the increment in energy production by 2035.

5. Rethinking how the city looks and works. 54% of the world’s population lives in cities. Europe leads the way in sustainability, with seven out of the world’s top 10 most sustainable cities, according to the ARCADIS Sustainable Cities Index.

6. Making STEM more appealing to young students. By 2018, the United States will have more than 1.2 million unfilled STEM jobs. Meanwhile, according to a UCLA study, 40% of students enrolled as STEM majors switched subjects or failed to get a degree.

7. Safeguarding our personal data and wealth from cyberattacks. 34% of data breaches happen at financial institutions; 11% target retail companies; while 13% target government institutions, according to the 2014 Data Breach Investigation Report.

8. Addressing climate change through engineering innovation. Six of the 10 cities with the largest annual flood costs by 2050 are in India and China. Three are in the U.S.: New York, Miami and New Orleans.

9. Feeding our growing population through cutting-edge bio-engineering and agricultural innovations. The U.N. warns that we must produce 60% more food by 2050 to keep up with demand, but how do we do this sustainably? Food and water access will be major issues in the future, and research must begin now.

10. Improving our health and well-being through life sciences, nanotechnology & bio-engineering. Administration on Aging, by 2060 the population of Americans aged 65 and older will have more than doubled in size from 2011. This puts a lot of pressure on new drug creation and also on innovative engineering techniques to deliver drugs.

Making a fake passport or ID to hack into someone else's Facebook account takes only a few minutes, thanks to online tutorials that are a simple Google search away.

Last week, someone took control of the Facebook account of Aaron Thompson, a 23-year-old from Pontiac, Michigan, by tricking Facebook's support to disable all security on his account after showing them a fake, photoshopped, passport.

The hack exposed a major flaw in the way Facebook, and other online providers, verify that we are who we really claim we are.

As it turns out, there are several free online tutorials, and even apps, to learn how to make fake IDs on your computer. A Google search for "bypass facebook government ID" turns out thousands of hits, including YouTube tutorials specifically made with the goal of circumventing Facebook's government ID requirements.

There are also several text guides that detail all the steps necessary to forge an ID.

"Today I will show you how you can make own fake government id proof to bypass facebook verification," reads one.

If Photoshop and image editing isn't your forte, you can automate most of these steps thanks to apps like Fake ID Generator, which has been downloaded more than 17,000 times, according to Google Play. While the app isn't marketed specifically to avoid Facebook's verification, it could clearly be used for that, though the app reminds potential users that "these IDs are for entertainment only." And it's worth keeping in mind that using fake passports or IDs is a crime in most countries.

It's unclear how many people use forged documents on Facebook, but it's likely that the incident last week is not the first time that happens. But a source who claims to have been using photoshopped fake IDs on Facebook for years, told Motherboard that Facebook's controls aren't very effective.

"They never catch you," the cybercriminal, who declined to be identified, said.

"They never catch you."

All these sites and tools, however, don't seem to worry Facebook. In response to last week's hack, the company admitted its mistake in handing over Thompson's account, saying that "accepting this [fake] ID was a mistake that violated our own internal policies and this case is not the norm."

It's unclear what policies Facebook uses, but in response to a questions related to these sites and tools that teach people how to circumvent Facebook's ID verification process, a spokesperson told me this week that government IDs "are just one aspect of verification," and that the company also uses "other signals" such as IP address, account history, and others.
