GM CEO Rick Wagoner made his case for a federal bailout in a column in the Wall Street Journal Nov. 19. I’m still not a fan.
Here’s a brief summary of his case:
• GM has already axed a ton of people.
• The Chevy Malibu demonstrates that GM can make cars that people want.
• GM is trying to re-establish its lead in advanced propulsion technology.
• The auto industry affects a lot of people outside of Detroit and is critical to the health of the US economy
I like GM cars. I only buy GM cars. But I have no interest in engaging Mr. Wagoner in a virtual debate, point by point, because I think he misses the point of a free market economy. We don’t have debates to determine which companies survive and which companies fall. The market decides.
Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
Researchers at the Missouri University of Science & Technology have designed a new nanoscale material that can transmit light faster than the 186,000 miles per second it usually takes to travel through air.
It has often been said that as California goes, so goes the nation. This spring, the state's wind power is setting energy generation records and solar energy generation is expected to rise sharply during the second half of 2013.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
