Wilshire Rotary's Dynamic Speaker Series Proudly Presents
André Bormanis
Incorporating Real Science in the Science Fiction of Star Trek 

André Bormanis is the man to whom the writers and directors turn to every day when they want to make their 'future science' as plausible and comprehensible as possible. He served at the science advisor on Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine television series and on the "Star Trek Generations" and "Star Trek: First Contact" films. André is also the author of "Star Trek: Science Logs". It is an incredibly fascinating book that separates scientific fact from science fiction. 
Share some of your favorite Star Trek episodes with André Bormanis on Wednesday, October 7 at the beautiful and historic Ebell of Los Angeles. Check-in and fellowship begins at 11:55 a.m., meeting is called to order at precisely 12:15 p.m.
Lunch is $25, raffle tickets are a buck each or 10 for $5. Parking is FREE to everyone who attends the meeting!
See you there!

Bringing education to rural Mexican area, one school at a time
When Mariana Day moved in 1989 to the small beach town of Chacala, in Nayarit, Mexico, she noticed that the surrounding rural areas struggled to maintain schools. And most children weren’t able to go beyond an eighth-grade education. Day, who is a member of the Rotary Club of Bahía de Jaltemba-La Peñita, in Nayarit, had started a local scholarship program before she joined Rotary. Called Changing Lives, the program provided students with high school tuition, uniforms, school supplies, and transportation. In addition, Rotary clubs from the United States and Mexico have been investing in the...
Meet our polio partners
From the September 2015 issue of The Rotarian Eradicating polio is a complex job.

Here’s how our roles break down. The Strategist: WHO The World Health Organization (WHO) coordinates the management and administration of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative and provides technical and operational support to ministries of health in countries around the world.

Nigeria sees no wild polio cases for one year
Today marks one year since Nigeria last reported a polio case caused by wild poliovirus, putting the country on the brink of eradicating the paralyzing disease. The last case was reported on 24 July 2014 in the northern state of Kano. If no cases are reported in the coming weeks, the World Health Organization is expected to remove Nigeria from the list of countries where polio is endemic, leaving just two: Afghanistan and Pakistan. Nigeria is the last polio-endemic country in Africa. The continent is poised to reach its own first full year without any illness from the virus on 11 August. “...
Australian students take opportunity by the horns
The rules of the Shaftesbury Rodeo Academy are simple: no school, no rodeo. It’s a message that teenagers who attend school at Bisley Farm, most of whom have never attended any school regularly, take seriously. Because come Friday night, these aspiring rodeo heroes want to join their friends to ride bulls for a heart-stopping eight seconds, if they last that long. The school in rural Queensland, Australia, also teaches the boys, who are of the Wakka Wakka Aboriginal people, basic academics and farming skills, including how to care for crops and livestock. It’s a fairly common form of...
