SERVICE NEEDED: After 30,000 miles, transmission fluid begins to show it’s age as it turns brown in color and oxidizes due to the combination of time and heat. Deposits begin to form around the transmission’s many moving parts, resulting in valves that stick and gears that slip or are sluggish and chatter as they shift. SOLUTION: Rather than just removing the fluid found in the bottom of the pan, the entire transmission is cleaned and replenished with the use of special equipment. The transmission and its torque converter have all their old contaminated fluid removed while new fluid and premium conditioners are added. One of the hardest working parts of your vehicle will shift smoothly and effortlessly for many more trouble-free miles. Most cars and light trucks. No other discounts apply. Synthetic transmission fluid extra. Offer ends 03/31/14.

Earth Day

‘Employees Really Do Make A Difference . . .’ ■ By MICHAEL GOUGIS Contributing Writer amara Sams came to Boeing from a marketing and communications position with the Salvation Army, so working with non-profit agencies for the improvement of the community wasn’t something you had to persuade her to do. But Sams wasn’t really experienced in outdoors work. She found that “getting your hands dirty” and “heavy lifting” weren’t just metaphors – they were literal descriptions of hard work. And she loved it – so Kamara Sams, Environmental Community Relations focal at Boeing, participates in a past tree planting activity with nonprofit partner Tree People. Kamara, like many employees, enjoys bringing her children to events to teach them about volunmuch that she’s now part teering and the environment.

Conservancy, a private non-profit agency that works to maintain the Bolsa Chica wetlands and to educate and restore coastal wetlands. “(The conservancy) is another non-profit that we have partnered with in the past,” Passaseo says. “We’re hoping to have about 100 volunteers there to help remove invasive plants and restore the habitat in the area.” It can be hard work, and often the volunteer efforts don’t attract the spotlight like more highprof ile activities. Sometimes it’s hard, through the rush of everyday life, to notice that the wetlands in Bolsa Chica are litter-free, or that the birds who nest there look healthy and plentiful, or that the trees at Stetson Non-profit partner The Ecology Center brings their watershed trailer to the Huntington beach site to educate employees on water conservation at the 2013 Earth Day Fair in Huntington Beach.

Not only do those groups provide environmental conservation services and education, but each reaches out to young people who can benefit from the activities that the agencies engage in. The Corps, in particular, reaches out to at-risk youth and adults with environmental and community service activities designed to provide them with jobs skills, education and work experience. “That would give the Corps the opportunity to give young people the opportunity to go out and work, or opportunities for the

Audubon Society to go out and do, say, bird banding or bird counting on some of our properties,” Sams says. The outdoors activities, the fun (and hard labor) in the sun are the most visible parts of the environmental activities scheduled for Boeing employees by TreePeople and the Bolsa Chica Conservancy. But there is another element that is just as important, critical for long-term change in the way that Southern California residents and Boeing employees interact with their environment. That element is education. And all of these organizations – TreePeople, the Bolsa Chica Conservancy, Los Angeles Conservation Corps, the San Fernando Valley Audubon Society – identify education as key to their core missions. Educating the public about environmental issues is key to the survival, physical and economic health of the Southern California region – witness the massive public awareness campaign underway at this point in time to bring the public up to speed on what it needs to do to conserve water in the face of one of the driest years on record. Boeing is happy to step up and support that mission of education, says Vanessa Pereda, Boeing Global Corporate Citizenship Community Investor. “In terms of Global Corporate Citizenship, our contributions to the community, it’s really to educate the public on environmental issues,” Pereda says. “And we as a company try to do that internally as well, through our volunteer projects, through our Earth Day activities. And we ask our non-profit partners to educate us on environmental issues. “Unless people are educated and aware, you’ll never see action, and then you’ll never see change.” ■

Manufacturing Designation Could Benefit Long Beach ■ By TIFFANY L. RIDER, Editor Long Beach Business Journal ong Beach has an opportunity to be part of an application for L the Los Angeles region to become a federally designated manufacturing community, which could bring needed funding and technical assistance to the area. The designation competition, which was launched in December by the Obama Administration, would provide up to 12 selected communities preferential treatment for federal funding from a pool of $1.3 trillion and assistance from 10 different federal agencies. The deadline to apply is March 14. Leonard Mitchell, executive director of the USC Center for Economic Development, leads the regional effort to apply for this designation. He noted that for Long Beach to be involved, a partner commitment letter must be submitted by March 7. Mitchell’s team at the USC Center as well as staff from the Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC) are coordinating with cities, small business development centers, regional workforce investment boards, community colleges, the California State University system, research universities and other academic institutions to craft an application that would designate the region as what many consider it to be already – a hub for aerospace and defense manufacturing. “If you look historically, many industries have been seeded by aerospace and defense research,” Mitchell told the Business Journal. JoAnne Golden-Stewart, director of public policy for the LAEDC, told the Business Journal that this designation is critical. “The Los Angeles region is the manufacturing capital of America,” she said. “We are working with Long Beach to make sure the city is being competitive as part of this proposal.” The application requires proof that the region is adequately equipped to hold the designation – quantified in time and money spent – and has strategies for investing in the following areas: workforce and training, infrastructure and site development, trade and international investment, operational improvement and capital access, advanced research and supply chain support. “Long Beach has quite a bit to offer in each of those categories,” Golden-Stewart said. “It’s a very critical player.” Mitchell agreed. The Long Beach College Promise program, which provides a path for high school students to get into college, would be a valuable addition to the application, according to Mitchell. “The region has invested a lot in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education,” he explained. “We’re trying to build the next steps for those kids to show them the future of manufacturing. We have

strengths we will not lose because we have invested so heavily in our education infrastructure. What we are doing now is to prepare for the future.” As the university redevelops curricula for manufacturing, students can start looking at manufacturing as being creative as developing a computer game, Mitchell said. “For those people who want to make something, there are so many opportunities,” he said. Fifth District Councilmember Gerrie Schipske, who serves as a member of the Los Angeles Jobs Council, learned about the opportunity and placed an item on the February 18 city council agenda to encourage the city’s participation. “We have one of the highest unemployment rates in the county, so anything that brings jobs will be a benefit to the city,” Schipske told the Business Journal. “We’ve got to get involved in this process so the city can explore what actual benefits there would be.” The goal is to ensure that investments are industry driven, according to Mitchell. “What we’re trying to do is to support this industry and its supply chain in moving into its future through advanced manufacturing technologies,” he said. LAEDC has been conducting conversations with businesses in aerospace and defense manufacturing, and further discussion will occur as the application is developed. ■
