As Ford spends big, GM joins aluminum with simple welds
Automotive News
General Motors is adding more lightweight aluminum to its vehicles. But unlike Ford Motor Co., GM is not spending hundreds of millions of dollars to retool its assembly plants for the metal. Instead of joining aluminum parts with rivets and industrial adhesive — as Ford does to assemble the redesigned 2015 F-150 — GM is rolling out a new welding system.

American manufacturing is alive and well
The Wall Street Journal
For the U.S. economy, manufacturing still matters. That is something that can be lost amid the influx of imports on store shelves and steady erosion of factory jobs. With only 10 percent of private-sector workers employed by manufacturers, versus 25 percent in 1980, it seems like the sector wouldn’t provide much oomph. Yet that ignores other workers, from truck drivers to forklift operators, who aren’t employed in manufacturing but still depend on it.

With welders needed, grant to Tampa, Florida, college aims to fill a skills gap
Tampa Bay Times
In hindsight, Todd Singleton says he left the Air Force at the worst time. It was late 2008. The economy had crashed. Jobs were scarce. Little from his 20 years in uniform — not his work in information technology, combat communications and intelligence support, not his deployments to Bosnia, Qatar, Afghanistan and Iraq — helped him find a civilian career. After trying a couple of jobs, Singleton, 44, of Riverview, Florida, ended up in a new training program for welders at Hillsborough Community College. His son Sean, 20, joined him. They started in April and are scheduled to finish next April.

The Hays Daily News

He was one of 10 students in the inaugural short-term welding class taught this fall by Buck Dannar from North Central Kansas Technical College that was completed recently.

Florida women see welding as avenue to better jobs
The Clarion-Ledger
Diana Matykunas and Jennifer Nardone made a decision not many other women make in this day and age. They got into welding. It’s a discipline marked by high heat, heavy metal and the potential for danger. It is also misconceived. "You’ve gotta get the (idea) out of your mind that there is a man’s world or a woman’s world," said Matykunas, 46. "This is anybody’s world, and women can actually dominate if they get beyond that initial hesitation."

Prize-winning welded giraffe rises above Bellingham (Washington) Public Library lawn
The Bellingham Herald
In 2002, the first welding rodeo at Bellingham (Washington) Technical College laid the foundation for one of the premier welding competitions in the Northwest, and also gave birth to Delilah, a 14-foot-tall giraffe that was the winning creation. Since then, Delilah has stood patiently amidst some bushes, keeping friendly watch over the public lawn behind Bellingham Public Library. Appropriately, that side of the library includes views of Delilah and from the Children’s Library on the lower floor.
