Experts Weigh In: What’s New in Generator Technology?

With a new iPhone coming out every other day, mobile apps being created more quickly than anyone can learn how to use them, and everything from toasters to airplanes being subjected to near-constant updates, it seems like a truism to say that technology and progress go hand in hand.

Visual Generator Inspection – The Initial Patient Assessment

We all hate the obvious. The simple. The easy. The blatant answer that practically screams with flashing lights and a howling siren. “Naww, that can’t be it,” you hear yourself say, “it’s gotta be something else.” And so you break out your tool kit and go to work. You ignore everything about the obvious answer in the hopes it isn't an elaborate hoax for a more complex issue. But, no matter what you do, you keep gett... read more >
