NEMA Currents
  • 'Tis the Season

Black Friday...

  • Present Status of the US Conformity Assessment System

    Those knowledgeable of the U.S. conformity assessment system for electrical products, knows that it continues to evolve in a decentralized manner, resulting in an extensive and increasingly complex system.

  • Manufacturing a recovery, but still a ways to go

    The manufacturing sector’s rebound has been one of the major linchpins for the broader U.S. economic recovery.

  • CT Under Attack, Again

    Sunday's Los Angeles Times included an article entitled, “CT scans can be better medicine for doctors than for patients” that unfortunately gives readers an inaccurate picture of how physicians use computed tomography to care for their patients.

  • Card Check is on the Table -- and the Die is Cast

  • Buyers Beware – US Warns Beijing Olympic goers that they are responsible for what they buy

    In a Reuters article this week, CPSC head Nancy Nord warned Americans attending the Olympic games not to buy cheap or counterfeit goods.

  • Lost in the Shuffle

    As quickly as energy prices shot up earlier this year, they appear to be collapsing just as quickly. However, concerns over the financial and credit market crisis have largely overshadowed this. Falling prices generally bolster demand for a product, but concerns over the economy are keeping consumers...

  • Don’t Be Fooled!!

    The announcement of a net 431,000 new jobs being created during May certainly gives off the strong impression of a rapidly improving job market. Unfortunately, 411,000 of those jobs came via temporary workers tasked with performing work for the 2010 decennial Census, with the remaining 20,000 jobs added...
