  • On Second Thought…

    With today's release of revised GDP data for the second quarter, we now see this measure of aggregate economic growth increased 3.3 percent.

  • NEMA Staff attend DOE Smart Grid workshop

    Two NEMA staff members, John Caskey from the Industry Operations and Eric Hsieh from Government Relations, participated in the Department of Energy’s Smart Grid Implementation Workshop. The objective of the workshop was to develop metrics for measuring progress toward the implementation of the Smart...
  • In the dark about shift to energy-efficient lighting

    For the second time this year, the Washington Times OP-ED page contains a commentary that lashes out against the national transition to modern, energy efficient lighting (David Deming, “Fluorescent Light Bulb Folly” ). As a leading media venue for conservatives, WashTimes is generally effective in highlighting...
  • Celebrating DICOM

    Last April, during a banquet in Chengdu, China, members of the DICOM Standards Committee paused for a toast to celebrate the DICOM Standard's 25 th anniversary. Or was it the 15 th ?

  • “Sharpe on Trade”

    At one point in “Sharpe’s Tiger”, the engaging historical page-turner I just finished, Bernard Cornwell’s alpha-male English private hero and a wise old Scottish colonel have the following 1799 exchange while imprisoned in a Southern Indian jail: “All in all, I think, and judging him by the standards...
  • Part of the way there

    NEMA staff do a lot of meetings. A lot of meetings all over the US, sometimes Canada, and sometimes Mexico. Most of the hotels that we hold the meetings at are environmentally conscious. They ask their guests to re-use towels and linens to help them "be green." Unfortunately, they are only...

    Say it ain’t so, not that iconic name. But this is indeed what Seth Shulman convincingly argues in The Telephone Gambit , his essential foray into exactly how Bell (whose multitudinous papers only became publicly available in 1999) came to be the acknowledged inventor of the telephone.
