2011 was an odd year.  The volatility reminded me of the Led Zeppelin song, “Dazed and Confused.”  The S&P 500 moved at least 2% on more than 60 days (which in 2005, for example, it didn’t do once).  Those people who have superior information and market sense — traders and professional money managers – did a poor job.  Most money managers underperformed their indices. Meanwhile, at the start of the...

Establishing The Pipeline For New Talent In 2006 it became clear to RRPC Members that the Monroe Community College Optics program, the only program of its kind in the nation, was in dire straights. With very few annual registrations and fewer graduates, the program was a clear target for elimination by the College. The RRPC, together with the new Dean of Technical Education, Dianna Phillips, undertook an effort to market...
