Looking back forty plus years, who could not have predicted that our country today would be in such a race to establish third world status .
Back when I came of age and took responsibility for myself, I started working to support my existence and new from the start that my life was up to me and I was in charge of the decisions I made, good and bad. My grandparent came to this country, legally, from Canada, Italy, and Ireland, learned the English language and were able to find a good paying job to support their families.

Thermo Fisher has a 30-year history of working in China, and its growth in recent years has led to a Chinese version of the company’s product catalog and the new headquarters of Thermo Fisher’s environmental instruments business, where company president and CEO Marc Casper has said he believes business will double in the next five years.
In February, Casper told Mass High Tech, “The Chinese government is pouring millions into food safety and air quality monitoring programs, and we are benefiting from that.”
Thermo Fisher has been leading an acquisition spree that added four new companies in the time from January to May. The buyouts come as the company has closed, or is in the process of closing, 20 facilities worldwide, amid a restructuring program announced at the end of 2008. However, last week, the company also confirmed plans to shutter its East Providence, R.I., facility, leaving 66 people unemployed.
