(Routledge: New York) -- Workforce readiness is an issue that is of great national and societal importance. For the United States and other countries to thrive in a globally interconnected environment of wide-ranging opportunities and threats, the need to develop and maintain a skilled and adaptable workforce is critical.

National investments in job training and schools remain essential in stimulating businesses and employment agencies to collaborate productively with educators who provide both training and vocational guidance.

(ISO: Geneva) -- While some countries have made great progress toward universal health coverage, half the world’s population are still unable to obtain the health services they need. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) are working collaboratively to change things.

Good health should be a universal human right, but all too often it is dictated by social and geographical circumstances. Global health and well-being are the preserve of WHO, the directing and coordinating authority for health within the United Nations system. Created to dispense the advice and knowledge needed for people to lead healthy lives, WHO provides leadership on matters critical to health and engages in partnerships where joint action is needed. This aspiration toward better health for all has been the guiding principle for seven decades and is the impetus behind the organization’s drive toward universal health coverage.

(CRC Press: Boca Raton, FL) -- Responsible manufacturing has become an obligation to the environment and to society itself, enforced primarily by customer perspective and governmental regulations on environmental issues. This is mainly driven by the escalating deterioration of the environment, such as diminishing raw material resources, overflowing waste sites, and increasing levels of pollution.

Responsible manufacturing related issues have found a large following in industry and academia, which aim to find solutions to the problems that arise in this newly emerged research area. Problems are widespread, including the ones related to the life cycle of products, disassembly, material recovery, remanufacturing, and pollution prevention.

(Q-Mark: Rancho Santa Margarita, CA) -- Q-Mark is now offering precision diamond styli in nearly any standard thread size and configuration. Diamond styli are an excellent choice for demanding applications. Diamond sphere performance is unmatched when measuring hard, abrasive, or very soft surfaces.

No more cleaning or build-up

Unlike ruby spheres, no substance sticks to diamond spheres, not even the softest aluminum alloys. Diamond spheres retain their high-precision spherical form at all times, thereby preventing additional measuring uncertainties. This saves you time and money because checking, cleaning, and recalibration are theoretically eliminated.

The hardest substance on Earth

Diamond is the hardest known natural material on Earth. Pure diamonds can only be scratched by other diamonds. Diamonds resist breaking under impact and are impervious to strong acids, bases, and chemical solvents. These beneficial properties ensure that your diamond styli will retain their high-quality spherical form indefinitely. There’s no need to inspect them for wear. 

Another advantage of diamond-coated spheres is their high Grade-5 (less than 150 nm) sphericity. They’re available in more sizes,
and they cost less than solid diamonds.
