Each month, ERJ sets a weekly brainteaser, with questions of varying degrees of difficulty. Readers supplying the most accurate (and stylish) answers are then considered for the prestigious Brainiac of the Month title.
A feature this month has been the expert input of new participants. In recognition, our top award goes to select trio: Stefano Carletti, Indorama; T N Dahal, Kankai Rubber; and Flemming Vorbeck, NDI Group – new, joint holders of the Brainiac of the Month title
Some great answering this month, especially for tricky Q3. And, for his mathematical tour de force in solving that challenge, it is big congratulations to Michele Girardi, Scame Mastaf SpA, new holder of the Brainiac of the Month title.
For their neat solutions to tricky Q2, it's well done to France Veillette of Bridgestone Canada, Andrew Knox, Rubbond Int; Michele Girardi, Scame Mastaf and David Mann, SPC, the new joint holders of our Brainiac of the Month title.
As we say, readers supplying the most accurate (and stylish) answers are considered for the top title each month. Taking the style-factor into account, there can only be one winner: congratulations to Jose Padron of Waterville TG, our new Brainiac of the Month.
The ERJ Brainiac of the Year Awards 2020 have been decided using advanced algorithms in which points were awarded for each correct answer, special mention and helpful and/or amusing email sent in during the year.
Our top award sometimes goes to promising new entrants. Big congratulations, so, to: Francesco Parazzoli of Pirelli Tyre; and Mehmet Koral, C&C Endüstriyel Danışmanlık, Eğitim ve Mümessillik, joint winners of our latest Brainiac of the Month title.
With so little to separate the quality and speed of their answering, our top award is shared between: Stephan Paischer, Semperit; Michele Girardi, Scame Mastaf; Jose Padron, Waterville TG; and Andrew Knox, Rubbond Int. – new joint holders of the Brainiac of the Month title.
This month saw a lot of sharp answering by a select few Brainiacs. And using tricky Q1 as the tie-breaker, it’s big congratulations to industry consultant John Bowen, David Mann of SPC, Michele Girardi, Scame Mastaf and Stephan Paischer, Semperit – new joint holders of the Brainiac of the Month title
It was well past midnight before our judging panel concluded hours of heated debate over this month’s award. Eventually Q2 and Q5 were key to deciding between six candidates. So, top honours went to Stephan Paischer of Semperit and Michele Girardi of Scame Mastaf – as well as to, as a newcomer, Natalie Prescott of Prescott Instruments for her impressive solution to Q1. Well done to all three new joint holders of the Brainiac of the Month title.
