Welcome to the U.S., Alberto!

Now, go tell your story to every U.S. citizen (I know how you South 
Americans HATE it when we call ourselves Americans LOL) who has not 
traveled abroad. Maybe then they will realize how lucky they have it.

That would be the most important contribution you can make as a new

Subject: [SEAINT-SEAOSC] Hi Bill Allen

It is not a bad idea to have a lot of brilliant engineers for my 
entertaiment. I joined this list when it was beggining. I remember you 
Bill, Polhemus, Utzman, Scott, Tandy, Sprague, Dennis Wish who always wrote 
 very detailed messages and sometimes was a little rude with 
Pohlemus,...and he created his own list,... All those names were familiar 
to me. so familiar that up to now I think that they are my friends...but I 
have never seen the face of any of them. Structural engineering has been 
the passion of my life. I am 69 years old and I have never had one day of 
my life without studying. I love dynamics analysis, seismic engineering and 
design of tall buildings. I had to move to Venezuela, because in my 
country, Chile, there was a marxist socialist goverment. I got the chilean 
engineering license in 1968 and the same year I was awarded wit a 
scholarship from MIT to get my PhD but I couldn't accept it for personal 
problems. I moved to Venezuela and got there the Venezuelan engineering 
license and worked as a structural engineer for almost 30 years, designing 
the tallest buildings in Valencia, silos (concrete and steel) and important 
 industrial buildings. And then the same political problem moved my family 
(four children) and me to the USA. I came here in 2007 and got the american 
 license (EF and PE ) in one year. With so many problems in my country ( as 
 an example: six cars were stolen to me in eight years and thieves broke
