Call a high-tech headhunter these days, and the phone gets answered on the first ring with an anxious, "How can I help you?" During the summer of 2000, headhunter Hugh MacKenzie was overwhelmed with demand for high-tech help. Things slammed to a halt in early 2001 for H.M. Associates in Danvers, MA. "Before, they had 20 openings to fill and were begging for engineers," says MacKenzie, president of H.M. Associates. "Now they're saying, 'Yeah, I can give you one opening to fill.'

We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
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
