    When recently we addressed the subject of advocacy science (or advocacy engineering), we drew attention to certain of its drawbacks. For example, an advocate is inclined, either overtly or covertly, to emphasize facts that tend to support his cause. Conversely, he may be expected to overlook or even suppress those facts that tend to undermine his cause. Advocacy clearly fosters polarization, and m... View full abstract»

    Prospects of satellite power stations beaming energy to earthbound antennas seem brighter than ever. A key new concept is that the satellite stations could be manufactured from raw materials mined on the moon. The lunar ores would be processed with solar energy into structural materials for satellite solar power station. View full abstract»

    The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) publishes an officially sanctioned document (updated annually) entitled "Recommended Salary Ranges." This document provides employers and employees with a guide to fair salary practice for civil engineers based on professional grades and yearly changes in the average salary level of civil engineers entering the job market. Further, some ASCE sections ... View full abstract»

    A somewhat heated controversy has arisen within the IEEE in regard to an official Institute position against the California Nuclear Initiative. As published in the June 1975 issue of Spectrum, p. 26, IEEE's position opposed a California moratorium, called for by the referendum to be voted on next month, on construction of nuclear plants. Reacting angrily, a portion of IEEE's membership has express... View full abstract»

    Like an amoeba, the "128 world" is constantly changing shape - stretching out here to engulf a new area, contricting there to lose one, as electronics businesses flourish or fold. Its genesis, of course, is Route 128 in Massachusetts, now the backbone of the locale that has hosted so many prominent electronics firms. View full abstract»
