Almost daily, the media report incidents of malicious interference with computer systems, ranging from simple pranks, stealing personal data, industrial espionage, ransomware, and corrupting databases, all the way to disabling major utilities. There is clear demand for technologies that help detect, block, and recover from the effects all sorts of attacks. The October 2017 session of the Caltech Entrepreneurs Forum will be devoted to identifying entrepreneurial opportunities for providing tools to combat cyber threats. We will focus on market segments, what it takes to establish credibility as a small company, and what types of strategic alliances with larger companies can be used to overcome the challenges of starting and operating an emerging company capable of developing and selling leading edge security technology to large and potentially very conservative customers.
Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Stan Stahl, president of Citadel Information Group and SecureTheVillage. Dr. Stahl’s cybersecurity career extends from his in-the-trenches security engineering work nearly 40 years ago to protect our nuclear missile arsenal to his community leadership today creating cybersecurity culture. Dr. Stahl will give us an overview of cybersecurity from the perspective of the need different classes of buyers have for new cybersecurity products and services. After his talk, we will turn to a panel of entrepreneurs in this burgeoning field who will report their varying experiences and approaches to financing, developing and selling cybersecurity products.

Dear Mr. President –
Congratulations on a remarkable run. Millions have placed their hopes in you, and all of us, regardless of party, should hope for expanded prosperity and security during your tenure.
This is a unique office, without a clear blueprint for success, so I don’t know that any advice from me will be particularly helpful. Still, let me offer a few reflections from the past 8 years.
First, we’ve both been blessed, in different ways, with great good fortune. Not everyone is so lucky. It’s up to us to do everything we can (to) build more ladders of success for every child and family that’s willing to work hard.
Second, American leadership in this world really is indispensable. It’s up to us, through action and example, to sustain the international order that’s expanded steadily since the end of the Cold War, and upon which our own wealth and safety depend.
Third, we are just temporary occupants of this office. That makes us guardians of those democratic institutions and traditions — like rule of law, separation of powers, equal protection and civil liberties — that our forebears fought and bled for. Regardless of the push and pull of daily politics, it’s up to us to leave those instruments of our democracy at least as strong as we found them.
And finally, take time, in the rush of events and responsibilities, for friends and family. They’ll get you through the inevitable rough patches.
Michelle and I wish you and Melania the very best as you embark on this great adventure, and know that we stand ready to help in any ways which we can.
Good luck and Godspeed,
AbilityFirst programs and services. This extravagant occasion will be held at the Laurabelle A Robinson House in Pasadena. It is a tradition of gourmet food and exquisite craft cocktail, wine and beer tastings while you relax and mingle with friends– all while supporting the AbilityFirst programs we provide throughout Southern California.
The AbilityFirst Festival of Fall will take place on Sunday, October 15th from 4 to 7 p.m.
The 43rd Annual AbilityFirst Festival of Fall has returned to the historic Laurabelle A. Robinson house. Situated on four acres, this majestic Green & Greene home was commissioned in 1905 by lawyer and financier Henry Robinson and his wife Laurabelle. The house looks west over the Arroyo Seco with incredible sunset views of the historic Colorado Street Bridge and San Gabriel Mountains.
Guests will enjoy the rare opportunity to roam the unique ground including two outdoor kitchens, the lotus pond, the orchard, cactus and herb gardens and the life size chess set.

Nissan is prepared to launch the so called new designed 2018 Nissan LEAF, for many who have experienced the lies and trickery of Nissan this is adding salt to the wound.
For those burned by the misrepresentations by Nissan in range and poorly designed batteries, chances of those going out and buying a Nissan product are slim to none. Speaking from personal experience I would avoid Nissan products altogether after dealing with the company’s outsourced and pompous executive team. I would buy a Chevy Bolt or Tesla Model 3 and spend more money on these two products before I would drop a dime on Nissan. Nissan burn me once you are not going to burn me again! The problem with Nissan starts from the top!

Going on 36 years the world’s largest art community, located in Los Angeles, is once again opening its studios to the public. This is not your average Artwalk!
This October at the Brewery, The Brewery Artwalk Association is pleased to feature the largest contingent of pioneering artists in the Los Angeles area. While some of our talented resident artists are painters, photographers. printmakers and sculptors, other resident artists have been experimenting with Immersive 3D environments, LED light sculpture, high tech and high class furniture design, contemporary fashion and environmental design, new media and digital art. The artists of the Brewery stretch the meaning of art in different directions, but are often on the leading edge of the Los Angeles art scene.
Located northeast of downtown Los Angeles, off the 5 Freeway’s Main Street exit, sits 16 acres packed with creative energy, artistic dreams, and a little piece of historic LA.
The Brewery Arts Complex was an operating brewery from 1897 through 1979. Its second life as an arts complex began in 1982 with the passing of the Artist-In- Residence code, a Los Angeles housing code that gave artists the right to rent live/work space in industrially zoned buildings.
Housed in the industrial buildings of the complex is a uniquely vibrant and creative community. The artists (there are around 500) residing and working at The Brewery have opened their studio/homes to the public every year and most recently twice a year, for 33 years. The Brewery Artwalk is the largest original Artwalk in the world.
The Brewery Artwalk is FREE and open to the public! Whether you are an art collector, connoisseur, curator, want to buy unique fine art gifts, learn about the history of the community or discover how art, science and technology are linked; come enjoy an exciting free afternoon in the heart of LA’s art scene. There is free parking right across the street as well as a free shuttle from the Lincoln Heights/Cypress Park Gold Line metro station.
This Fall you can look forward to many new artists, food trucks, a beer garden hosted by our very own Barbara’s restaurant and a peaceful engaging environment. This is THE go-to art event of Los Angeles.
