I think it’s probably safe to as

I think it’s probably safe to assume that the request for “MORE Lawyers” probably means “MORE of the better kind.”

Dick, I have to say that I don’t agree that lawyers’ self-selection, education, and training “conspire” to ensure we get bad lawyers. I decided to be a lawyer because I wanted to “fight the man” and practice public interest and social justice law. While in law school, I met many incredibly motivated, interesting people who wanted to be forces for good and benefit society as part of their work (even the ones who wanted to specialize in areas I found dull). I never met a single person who I thought was in it to make a small group of people even richer. As part of our education and training, we were constantly taught and reminded again and again of our social responsibility.

I think it’s simplistic and inaccurate to stereotype the entire profession as hacks who are out to make a quick buck instead of doing anything useful.

Electronic Fuses (eFuses)

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and ON Semiconductor

Today’s advanced designs demand advanced circuit protection. The days of replacing old-school fuses are long gone, and we need solutions that provide more robust protection and improved failure modes. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Pramit Nandy of ON Semiconductor about the latest advances in electronic fuses, and how they can protect against overcurrent, thermal, and overvoltage.
