A new book from the International Society of Automation (ISA) is designed to help the next generation of automation engineers steer clear of common career obstacles.

• NEW BOOK FOR YOUNG AUTOMATION PROFESSIONALS
A new book from the International Society of Automation (ISA) is designed to help the next generation of automation engineers steer clear of common career obstacles. 101 Tips for a Successful Automation Career by Gregory K. McMillan and P. Hunter Vegas offers guidance on technical issues as well as interpersonal and workplace situations.

• ISO STANDARDS ON ELEVATOR AND ESCALATOR COMFORT
An updated ISO standard aims to improve passenger experience when using elevators, escalators, and moving walkways. The new standard aims to determine ride quality by specifying the deƒ nition, measurement, processing, and expression of vibration and noise signals that affect user experience.

• NIST EXPERIMENTS CHALLENGE THEORY OF ELECTROMAGNETISM
A cornerstone of physics may require some revision if ƒ ndings at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) are conƒ rmed. Recent experiments suggest that the current theory of electromagnetism — one of the four fundamental forces in the universe — may not accurately account for the behavior of atoms in exotic, highly charged states.
