I am sure not a lot of you know yet, but one of my many New Year’s resolutions is to get organized. I want to be a clutter buster! You see, I have come across a study that mothers who have “messy” and “cluttered homes have higher levels of stress hormones.
My first agenda: get rid of all the old appliances. Our house is literally cluttered with all kinds of appliances-we have the old Sony Betamax, around three VHS players, old box televisions of various sizes, PC monitors, boom boxes, turntables. Maybe, I should turn the house into a museum! (j/k)
The very reason why we have amassed a mountain load of old, non-working appliances is because of the sentimental attachment to such appliances. The 14-inch box television? That was my elementary graduation gift. The old Sony Walkman? It was my friend as it comforted me through my teenage angst.
Looking at all those old appliances with sentimentality made me wonder about the evolution of radios and televisions and how they work. I just found out that Radiall, founded in 1952, is one of the companies who made SMP coaxial connectors that revolutionized the emerging television industry. Coaxial cables are used as a transmission line for radio frequency signals and they are pretty much responsible for the images you see on your television. You cannot enjoy the latest episode of your favorite TV series without these connectors and cables.
Decades later, Radiall continues to be a global manufacturer of interconnect components for various industries that include Aerospace, Defense, Industrial, Medical and Telecommunications. “Our Most Important Connection Is With You”, the company’s tagline, is proven true in the launch of its new website which is user-friendly and easy to navigate, with a complete description of the company’s products such as antennas, fiber optics, microwave components, multi-pin connectors, RF cable assemblies, RF and SMP coaxial connectors, and space qualified components.
Looking at how highly-evolved the electronics and communication industry now, I was wondering if I should have been an Electronics and Communication Engineer instead of an accountant. Everything about technology and inter-connectivity seems fascinating.
Now, excuse me as I begin my quest as a clutter buster ;)!
