Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would
be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate
that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views.
It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if
you would like to post something on RF Cafe's
page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all
the responses to the original posts.

From CEO of Actel...
Why aren't US youth studying science ?
"The U.S. has installed a cap of 65,000 people. That cap was met this March for the entire year," he says."Many young people graduating today from universities with science degrees are foreign nationals. They are unable to work at an American company without that visa," he adds. "Companies are unable to apply for additional visas until October of this year. That means the entire hiring season for new college grads, from March through summer, has been complicated. We are unable to hire many of the interesting new college grads coming out this year."
Why are so many of the engineering grads foreign nationals? "I wish to heaven I knew," says Robertson. "This country must figure out ways to motivate more American students to enter engineering schools to develop the people we need, because these issues cannot stop our industry."
