Craig Watson gave an informative talk on the Arts and how they play an important part in our everyday lives.
This past Wednesday our Club enjoyed not one, but two speakers. Based on the evaluations, our Club thoroughly enjoyed Monsignor Clement Connolly and his topic "The Paradox of Religion," even giving him a standing ovation.
I don't know if it is because baseball spring training has begun or that Armida Baylon gave a pre-announcement that there would be a Pasadena Rotary Dodger game when the season opens but the meeting this week featured a true DOUBLEHEADER! Prez Mel said it was a good day to play two-two speakers that is.
Last Wednesday's speaker, Scott Carl, Chief Information Officer and Vice President, Parsons Corporation, gave an interesting presentation on Cyber Security. It's interesting to note that one is very vulnerable to a cyber attack using a wireless computer in an "open" public area, i.e. Starbucks, the Airport, etc.
Dante Caravaggio was this last Wednesday's Pasadena Rotary's speaker. He is a Senior Vice President with Jacobs Engineering. Jacobs Engineering did $12 billion in revenues in 2013 and their corporate office is right here in Pasadena. Our own member, George Ball, who is an Executive Vice President for Parsons Corporation, and a member of our Club, gave Dante a "Thumbs Up" for his presentation.
It was another beautiful day in Pasadena (OK, we need some rainy days but I am just reporting the facts) and another opportunity to get together with fellow Rotarians at the University Club. With Dean Billman out of town, I will give those who could not be there a taste of what you missed on February 12th (first, you missed the taste of some great fajitas from the lunch buffet!):
Adam Winkler, this week's Pasadena Rotary speaker and Professor of Law at UCLA gave an excellent presentation on the "Right to Bear Arms in America" and one's Second Amendment Rights.
