  • “Couldn’t Have Said It Better Myself”

    The October 15 "U.S.-EU High-Level Regulatory Cooperation Forum" was meant to be a cheery affair, but there were cracks in the façade that couldn't be covered over. Yes, cast against the larger goal of addressing barriers to Transatlantic trade, regulators on either side of the ocean are...
  • The Medical Isotope Shortage

And this was before the financial crisis really...
  • Why Did They Name An Orchestra After Electric Light?

    Why Did They Name An Orchestra After Electric Light? Working at NEMA as a non-technical specialist often has its “Hey what about…?” moments. And so in these days of financial uncertainty, while others might be seeing their lives pass before their eyes, here I am out of the blue remembering ELO. How did...
  • Not a Very Merry Christmas

    The federal government's $125 billion injection of equity capital into nation's 9 largest banks, along with several other concerted moves by the Treasury, Fed and FDIC are the first step in stabilizing the credit markets.
