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.

Education, Outreach, Egg Catapults And Helicopter Races: Boeing Celebrates National Engineers Week ■ By MICHAEL GOUGIS Contributing Writer ure, Boeing engineers can design spacecraft that probe the very depths of the universe and perform miracles of communication. They can build submersibles that illuminate the inky depths of the world’s oceans, providing eyes and ears for national security and a map of the ocean floor for explorers. But in the back of their minds, Boeing engineers really are asking themselves the critical question: How far can I catapult an egg and have it survive the landing? This, and other questions, Visiting students participate in a hands-on activitiy during the engineering fair that the El Segundo site hosted during will be answered during Engineers Week 2013. (Boeing photograph) Boeing’s celebration of engineering that is part of National Engineers Week. From February 17 to 21, engineers and employees at all seven of Boeing’s sites in its Southwest Region (Long Beach, Seal Beach, Huntington Beach, El Segundo, Mesa, Arizona, and Salt Lake City) will gather to celebrate the skills and accomplishments of engineers and to attract the best and brightest youngsters to the world of engineering. “I’m honored to sponsor this year’s company celebration of National Engineers Week,” said Rick Baily, Boeing Defense, Space & Security vice president of Engineering, Mission Assurance & Product Support and 2014 Engineers Week Boeing executive. “This event highlights the contributions that engineers make to society, inspires future engineers and promotes the spirit of innovation.” In 1951, the National Society of Professional Engineers began Visiting students admire their bottle rocket creations before launching them celebrating Engineers Week. Today, corporations, governmental during last year’s engineering fair in El Segundo. (Boeing photograph)

agencies, engineering, education and cultural societies join together for a week of activities, outreach and education. The goal is to raise the awareness of the importance of engineering, and to raise the interest of young people in the facets of education that lead to the creation of successful engineers. “One of the things that we’ve been promoting is the Huntington Beach Engineering Fair. This is an excellent opportunity for Boeing employees and all of the students who we invite onto the campus to learn about a lot of the Boeing technical programs and projects,” Boeing employees Brian Keene and Kimberly Fagan prepare to participate in an Egg Drop Competition in Huntington said Eric Gever, a flight system Beach. During the competition, employees are able to create a “Day of Design” egg package to help protect an egg from the fall when dropped off a tall building. (Boeing photograph) engineer and coordinator for EWeek activities at Boeing’s Huntington Beach facility. “Huntington Beach is very segregat- engineer and coordinator for E-Week activities at the company’s ed in that there’s a lot of different programs. We provide an El Segundo campus. “The vast majority of our outreach is actually done off-camopportunity for employees all over the company to visit and network with other programs that they might normally not be able pus through our middle school outreach program, where we visit to see, as well as meet some non-profit organizations that we students at their respective schools, as well as at an event known invite, as well as learn about the educational opportunities for as Introduce A Girl To Engineering, where we visit various community groups and try to get students, specifically girl students, outreach for employees. “For the students, we like to give them kind of an idea of the to get interested in STEM fields,” Reddy said. “A lot of the research that you’ll read on when students tend to direction we hope to see them heading, in order to recruit the best and brightest for the future of engineering, for the future of get involved in what they want to do for the rest of their lives is encouraging STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and when they are in middle school, or perhaps even younger. So we Mathematics) education. So we bring them on campus to learn a think it’s very important to start reaching out to those students little about what it’s like for new hires as well as seasoned engi- before they become uninvolved, before they think math is hard, to neers to be in the workforce, as well as play a few games and run say, hey, math might be hard, but look at all the cool things you can do with it if you study hard and you go to college and you get a few competitions.” It is important to reach those students early. At the El Segundo a degree in engineering or math or something like that.” Reaching young people is critical. At stake is nothing less than facility, E-Week activities include active outreach to students before they reach high school, said Jillian Reddy, a systems

Getting Involved In National Engineers Week The National Engineers Week Foundation is expanding its horizons, broadening the activities and programs that it supports, and as such late last year changed its name to DiscoverE. For more information about the foundation, Engineers Week and all of its activities, visit Boeing’s E-Week activities will be centered on the daily themes of safety, people first, affordability and engineering excellence. For a schedule of Boeing’s activities and more information, Boeing employees can visit the E-Week website and click into their region at: For community & volunteer opportunities go to Total Access -> My Community Giving-> Volunteer Events.

the future of the industry, said Robyn M Strosnider, a galley configurator on the 737 project and site coordinator for E-Week activities in Long Beach, where outreach extends to local Girl and Boy Scout organizations. “Engineering . . . touches every aspect of our world. Without a strong base of engineers, we can’t support that industry here,” she said. The outreach, networking and educational activities are important. The contests are pure fun. At Huntington Beach, organizers decided to take the contest of trying to make an egg survive a drop from a local high-rise one step further. Why let gravity have all the fun? This year, they’ll be building catapults to see who can hurl an egg furthest. Women of Boeing introduce girls to concepts and career options in engineering at “We’re going to have Boeing employees and students designing Girls Inc. of Orange County during Engineers Week 2013. This was just one event egg launchers, devices that they can launch, and if they (the eggs) among many in which 34 volunteers reached over 120 girls through activities with non-profit partners. (Boeing photograph) survive the landing, they’ll earn some points,” Gever says. In El Segundo, where they build satellites, it seems appropriate to two-liter plastic bottles, design and attach nose cones and fin guidhold a contest for building water-pressurized rockets – you need ance systems, fill the bottles halfway with water, pressurize the rockets to get the satellites into space, right? Teams will start with bejeezus out of them with a device fashioned from a bicycle tiretype pump, pull the plug and stand back. “The rocket that goes highest wins,” Reddy said. And in Long Beach, participants will take on a computer simulator that will challenge them to successfully land a commercial aircraft, and race radio-controlled helicopters through an obstacle and performance course. “It’s one of our biggest events. It’s really challenging. I don’t know if you’ve ever tried to fly one of those RC helicopters, but it’s actually really hard,” Strosnider says. “We’ve broken many at our house!” ■

Positive Signs Brighten Gloomy Outlook For California Aerospace And Defense ■ By DENNIS BRAY, Guest Columnist eaders in aerospace and defense manufacturing are set to L meet in Long Beach this February. At stake is our ability to maintain our competiveness in the global marketplace. Top agenda items at AeroDef Manufacturing Summit and Exposition 2014 have a direct impact on the regional economy and, fortunately for Long Beach, there are signs of positive activity – even in the face of job losses due to the pending closing of the Boeing C-17 military cargo plane production line. Public Policy. The region’s aerospace industry has deep roots in the Defense Department, employing an estimated 250,000 Californians. Defense programs are winding down given new political and economic realities, and budget cuts are particularly painful here. The budget recently approved by Congress restores an estimated $63 billion of cuts mandated by the federal budget sequestration. The Defense Department gets back about $22.5 billion in the 2014 fiscal year and another $9 billion in 2015. Gov. Jerry Brown has made it clear he intends to keep Defense jobs in the state. In March, he established a military council to “protect and expand the military’s vital role in national security and California’s economy.” The council – chaired by Under Secretary of State Ellen Tauscher and comprised of retired admirals and generals from the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard, as well as the Adjutant General of the California National Guard – will convene for one year and draft specific recommendations to the governor and legislature. Policymakers also are acutely aware of the need for strategies to attract private industry players. These include companies involved in space programs, like Hawthorne-based SpaceX, and in unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), or drone programs, a market that could grow to $10 billion within the next three years. State Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi (D-Torrance), chairman of the Select Committee on Aerospace, has formed an advisory board of state aerospace companies and other stakeholders to help promote the industry. He has also sponsored two state assembly bills to reduce taxes on aerospace companies. In September, the LA Jobs Defense Council, a program of the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp., announced its plans to “work more aggressively and on-the-ground with aerospace industry leaders as well as our elected officials to help our local suppliers and manufacturers resolve some of their most pressing business concerns.” Issues include escalating workers’ compensation costs, regulatory burdens, the lack of available industrial space, and skilled labor imbalances.



Despite the loss of the Boeing C-17 production line, major Defense aircraft components will continue to be manufactured in California. These include the center-aft fuselage of the F/A-18 Super Hornet built in El Segundo and the center fuselage of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter made in Palmdale, both by Northrop Grumman. Innovation. Much of the conversation at AeroDef will be dedicated to finding ways to drive innovation across the extended manufacturing enterprise – from the conception of a program, through production and sustaining it through its lifecycle. This is highly complex given the diversity of suppliers to the OEMs like Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman, but essential for the industry to maintain its competitiveness in the global marketplace. New technologies and applications are urgently needed to increase efficiency and affordability. California continues to be an epicenter of innovation in aerospace and defense, most notably for its state university system and vocational learning centers. The California Network for Manufacturing Innovation (CNMI) is a state-wide collaborative that brings together the National Research Laboratories, manufacturing extension partnerships, academic institutions, economic development organizations, manufacturers and equipment suppliers. It supports and fosters California advanced manufacturing, including reducing the risk aerospace and defense companies take on when adopting new technologies.8 Those of us in manufacturing believe these types of partnerships are key to addressing complex issues like driving innovation and developing an advanced manufacturing workforce. In December, Bloomberg ranked California as the second most innovative state (behind Washington), based on several factors, including STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) professionals as a percentage of the population, science and tech degree holders as a percentage of state population, and state government research and development spending as a percentage of U.S. total. The loss of the Boeing C-17 production line in 2015 and other job losses will hurt California in the in short run. But for the longer-term, California’s trajectory is strategically poised for success – by investing in STEM education, collaborative partnerships with business and academia, and public policies that support growth and innovation.

He acknowledged this behavior in the now retired American professional baseball player Willie Willie Mays, aka the “Say Hey Kid”, who was always smiling and laughing. Another athlete he admired was Michael Jordan for his strong work ethic, which led him to be one of the greatest athletes of all time. Third on his list of inspirational athletes is Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Jabbar, for being a basketball powerhouse for so many years. Jose says, “He was a true example of longevity, longevity, as he played professional basketball well into his 40’s effective 40’s and was as still ef ffective fective in what is typically considered a ‘young man’s’ man’s’ game”.
