  • Mexico is the new Detroit?
  • I have been to Agauscalientes which is smack in the geographic middle of Mexico. When I was at TI, they had a power module manufacturing plant there. The town was immaculately clean, two and three police officers calmly walked the streets, the town hod the highest number of university graduates in Mexico (Many good colleges right there in this area) and an average ago of around 30. There is also a bull-fighting ring there. I never felt to safe and welcome anywhere I had traveled like I felt there in the beautiful city.

  • Engineer asks boss about MBA
  • @Unkl_Mort---that happened to me in 1988. Just got my MSEE from Brooklyn Poly and I was told by the company I worked for (Which by the way, financed my degree) that a raise was not due and now I can do more for the company.

  • Autonomous vehicles: Are they ready for road challenges yet?
  • I think that the big advantages come during rush hour traffic especially in heavy traffic areas. Although automatic braking upon approaching too close to another vehicle is going to help especially distracted drivers---we have a great deal of that nowadays.

  • Solar highway facts and fallacies
  • Let's wait a bit and see if you are right or not. I will be publishing a follow up for all of you on this program and if it is not working, I will be the first to let you know. I hope you are wrong because we need to deploy solar wherever we can along with other alternative energies in order to get away from fossil fuels---of course the cost must be reasonable to us as consumers and taxpayers---I agree with you there. Let's give it a chance before we declare it dead
