Lead-free soldering: A progress report
There is interest in replacing traditional lead solders because of concerns about the environment and the damaging effects of lead. There are only a few alternatives to lead-tin and they must contain low-cost and low-toxicity components and should be eutectic or near-eutectic. GEC-Marconi Materials Technology Limited (GMMT) aims to develop a lead-free soldering technology under the BRITE/EURAM Programme. Favoured lead-free solders are tin-silver-copper and tin-silver-bismuth.

Everything that lives, eats
The pleasures of food and eating have often been the subject of art and have more often been used as a backdrop or context. Eating is an essential activity for humans, and artists have explored both the symbolic and spiritual potential of food as well as the carnal pleasures of eating. Contemporary photographs of food and eating may remind one of the works of Manet and Arcimboldo, though some images are less than appetizing.
