American RadioWorks via Marketplace

Students will still have to pass tests in math, English, science and history, but those who pass an exam in a career-related subject will be able to skip 1 of 2 mandated social science exams.

What the new factory worker should know
NPR via WYPR-FM
In previous generations, manufacturing jobs were often dirty, dangerous, often low-skilled. That time is long past. New manufacturing jobs are much cleaner. They require increasingly higher skill levels, and they're taking increasingly fewer people to do them. As part of its series "American Made," NPR sent Sonari Glinton to a center for old manufacturing — South Bend, Indiana — to listen to people as they ponder the future.

Handling and storing compressed gas cylinders
Safety+Health
Mishandling compressed gas cylinders — which can have internal pressure of up to 2,500 pounds per square inch &8212 can be disastrous. Dropping, tipping over or exposing a cylinder to heat can cause weaknesses or cracks in the cylinder’s shell, which can result in a shrapnel-laden explosion, according to the American Welding Society.

Still made in rural America: Steel in California gold country
U.S. Department of Agriculture
Small town Oroville, California, sits on the banks of the Feather River at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. It was established to supply the thousands of prospectors headed to Bidwell Bar, one of the first gold rush mines in the state. Today, this community of 16,260 people produces much more than just gold dust. At the edge of town, what started in 1989 as a backyard blacksmith shop by owners Michael Phulps and Sean Pierce has become a 82-employee steel manufacturing company called Metal Works, thanks to a little help from USDA Rural Development.
