Business needs regulations. Period:

This is how cons destroy the human race for money:
Allies of the medical device industry are waging an extraordinary campaign in Washington to discredit a coming report by one of the country’s pre-eminent scientific groups that examines possible new regulations on the industry.
The scientific group, the Institute of Medicine, is scheduled to release a report on Friday that could propose a tougher approval process for a wide range of devices like hip implants, hospital pumps and external heart defibrillators. The report, commissioned by the Food and Drug Administration, comes after several well-publicized recalls in recent years of devices that have failed in thousands of patients, causing numerous injuries

FDA: badly underfunded, consumers at risk

The Food and Drug Administration is so underfunded and understaffed that it's putting U.S. consumers at risk in terms of food and drug safety, an advisory panel to the FDA says in a report to be discussed Monday.
The report — developed in the past year by experts from academia, industry and other government agencies — delivers a scathing review of the state of the FDA, which regulates 80% of the nation's food, its drugs, vaccines and medical devices.
The report details a "plethora of inadequacies" in the agency, including:
•Inadequate inspections of manufacturers, noting that foodmakers, for example, are inspected about once every 10 years

  • Avatar Boe Shmoe Is electronic optics a good field for EE majors?

    I ve had an interest to get a master s degree education in the optics field for my Electrical Engineering major. How is the job outlook? Is it mostly physicists in research or is there a continuously working atmosphere? Is it worth going into?

    • Optics is more related to physics than other EE fields. I am an optics major myself and I am working as a researcher for a physics project. My main task is to produce, maintain, and operate good quality lasers. Outside physics research, optics majors have relatively fewer job opportunities than other majors. Some electronic devices sometimes do require knowledge in optics (for instance, dvd readers on your laptop, medical devices and etc). On the other hands, Signals and Communication majors have a very wide range of job opportunities now phones and internet have become everyone s daily necessities …
