Q&A: Cape Town’s ‘Day Zero’
On March 22, annual World Water Day will be especially relevant, as the United Nations and its co-sponsors hope to raise global awareness of water risks--particularly in Cape Town, South Africa. As we previously reported, a diminishing water supply is that city's top priority, as it is counting down to a possible "Day Zero" (which had been set for July 9, but the City has stopped providing a date), when it could effectively become the first major city to run dry.

2 Fertility Clinic Failures a ‘Bad Coincidence’
Equipment failures on the same day at two fertility clinics located across the country from each other--in California and Ohio--may have damaged or destroyed thousands of frozen eggs and embryos. The simultaneous "black swan events" appear to have no connection to each other and have experts mystified.

Copycat Threats Escalate After Fla. School Shooting
Numbers of bomb threats and false alarms following the deadly Feb. 14 shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida have jumped, causing fear and panic across the U.S. and creating havoc for school personnel and law enforcement.

TSA’s Anti-Terror Trackers Tested at Penn Station

President's Message

Manny Chavez
What a great weekend we just had! Saturday, October 21st, a bunch of us from the LA RIMS Chapter hiked 6.5 miles to the Hollywood Sign. It was a gorgeous invigorating day of exercise, sweat, laughter, meeting new peeps and accomplishment. We finished with a great lunch at Golden Road Brewing. I think we just might do something like this again.

This year is flying bye. Summer sorta just passed (it's still in the 90's) but I need to mention some of our sizzling events like the Summer Mixer! The Jonathan Beach Club has been the perfect venue. We had nearly 300 in attendance with fantastic weather, food, dancing, collaboration and live entertainment from the Mini Driver Band…Lead Singer and All Around Diva – Lindsay Billet (FM Global) rocked our socks off.

Your LA Chapter Board (Jeff, Scott, Vinny, Dennis, Maling, Richard, Taylor, Drue, Cristina, Jonathan, Ross, Adam, {Queen Amber} and myself) just finished our Strategic Planning Meeting for next year. We've got quite a lineup scheduled in 2018 that will promise to bring continued education, collaboration and plenty of fun that will personally offer you professional growth and opportunities, excitement and friendships that will last a lifetime. We're doing our best to keep you informed. Bookmark these sites on your computer or smartphone:
