    Sixty-three percent of the American public favors more nuclear power plants, Louis Harris revealed to an assemblage of journalists at the Engineers Club in New York City on August 5. The new Harris poll findings showed 19 percent opposed and 18 percent not sure. Harris himself thinks this is a clear indication of how the public would vote on issues such as those posed in the California Nuclear Ini... View full abstract»

    Unless prompt and effective actions are taken for the safeguarding and handling of nuclear fuels, the use of nuclear fission energy will be limited. Whereas risks associated with nuclear reactors have been quantified and put in perspective, questions remain about risks associated with the safeguarding and handling of the nuclear fuels themselves. As a result, little progress is being made in the `... View full abstract»

    In the face of the severe recession that has nearly paralyzed U.S. business for some time now ¿ a recession that has, at the time of writing, produced a 9.2-percent unemployment rate in the U.S. ¿ IEEE has been anxiously monitoring the employment status of its members through a variety of programs. Fearing major dislocations that could make the aerospace industry débacle of the early Seventies ... View full abstract»

    Apparently minority recruitment programs aren't working when it comes to electrical and electronics engineering. Based on the excellent response (about 40 000 U.S. member respondents, or a 40-percent response) resulting from the 1975 IEEE U.S. Membership Survey, less than 4 percent of the Institute's U.S. membership would appear to be non-Caucasian and only 0.5 percent would appear to be female ¿...

    This DIP relay, which features a thermoelectrically controlled actuator that replaces the induction coil of conventional relays, operates on either ac or dc current, is rated at 5 amperes, and has builtin time-delay capability. In the latching configuration, it remains actuated even after the current has been shut off. View full abstract»
