WE’VE all heard of ‘going green’ but scientists are taking it to the limit at the University of California by creating a forest of nanowire trees to harvest solar energy (see page 9). This is just the first of a number of ‘green’ stories in the May issue of wiredInUSA, which also features a look at this year’s Wire Expo taking place later this month in Dallas, Texas. This can be found on page 48. Also on the green side, Cenergy Power has com- pleted a photovoltaic system for almond proces- sor Hughson Nut at its processing facility in Califor- nia (see page 11). This issue is also tinged with sadness with news of the death of Edgar Danciger, founder of Florida Wire and Cable Co. The 94-year-old, who devel- oped new processes for making stranded wire and cable, died after a battle with cancer. You can read the full story on page 14, where he is de- scribed by a longtime friend as ‘amazing’. Not wanting to end on a sad note, congratulations must go to Steve Maguire, president of Maguire Products, who has received the annual Business Management award from the Society of Plastics Engineers (see page 16).
