Some journeys take the long straight road; others meander seemingly without purpose before arriving at their final destination. This month’s DA ID started as usual with the editorial calendar, then, with the craziness of the times we live in, things evolved. This month, the long and winding road has led to an eclectic collection of articles that together make for an unexpectedly good read. Regular readers of DA ID are familiar with the advertiser that graced our back cover for almost a whole year. Jim Jimmerson is regarded as a premier as egas legal mind. is client list reads like a Who’s Who of individual and corporate elite. ynn Wexler had the pleasure of talking to him about his practice and a particular cause that is close to his heart. In her piece on pages 26-27, we read of his support for Cognotion, a learning company dedicated to the principle that individuals deserve the dignity of a meaningful job. is notion that giving back keeps success in perspective is an idea that we all should contemplate. Breast cancer awareness month occurs this October. To do our part, we asked Paul arasim of the UN School of Medicine to contribute. In his piece Stephanie’s Choice, pages 31-33, he introduces us to local kindergarten teacher Stephanie Carrell and her husband and wife team of doctors from the School of Medicine. Dr. Jennifer Baynosa is a Surgical Oncologist and her husband Dr. Richard Baynosa is the chief and program director of the school’s division of plastic surgery. Their dedication to medical excellence and exceptional care helped Stephanie with her difficult decision. The Cosmopolitan is once again tickling our taste buds with their addition of Block 16 Urban ood all. In his piece Courting all Tastes, pages 3 -3 , Jason arris samples many of the included vendor’s offerings. My daughter, o is especially excited to try Pok Pok’s ietnamese chicken wings something that she has dreamt of them since she first tried them some years ago in Portland. Our cover this month says it all. BRA ISSIMO The as egas Philharmonic celebrates twenty years of programming that has significantly added to the cultural fabric of our community. Rob achelriess, on pages 0- 5, asks them twenty uestions, one for each year of their existence. As a regular concert goer, I cannot wait for the next twenty years and beyond. Sometimes a story grabs your attention and will not let go. In this case, it was it was a press release about a Minden, Nevada aviation company and their record-breaking glider flight. The fact that in the age of rocket-fueled flight an engineless plane could reach subspace altitudes has me enthralled. On September 2, 201 , with Jim Payne and Tim Gardner at controls, the Airbus Perlan II reached the phenomenal height of 76,12 feet above sea level. In Ja Greenspun’s piece Glidin’ High, pages 52-56, you can read more about this fantastic achievement. As election season will soon be upon us, we felt it would be useful to ask a few critical uestions about the integrity of our election systems and the influence of election forecasts. Aleza reeman’s Cyber Watch, pages 6-51, dishes up the good and bad news about election security in Nevada and Ja Greenspon’s Survey Says…, pages 28-29, gives us a brief history of polling, what they got right and what they got wrong. Both these articles are must-reads before heading off to your local polling station. As the seasons change and we can once again enjoy the great outdoors, keep cozy see you in the racks.
