Dr. O’Toole received his B.A. from Brown University and a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of California at San Diego. He started his career at JPL in 1975 as an energy economist supporting a large program in energy research implemented by JPL in support of the Department of Energy on alternative energy systems. In the early 1980s, he became the Manager of the Systems Analysis Section at JPL responsible for supporting all JPL projects including the deep space missions in the disciplines of quantitative methods including: operations research, statistics, simulation, cost analysis, risk analysis, and economics.
In 1988, he moved into a very different area of JPL’s management by leading the Government and International Affairs Office. In this role, he was responsible for JPL interactions with governments at all levels and for complying with rules governing export control. In 2000, Dr. O’Toole was made a member of JPL’s senior management team, The Executive Council, where he retains the responsibility for Government and Legislative Affairs.
With 37 years of experience with JPL, Dr. O’Toole has gained an extensive background in JPL’s history and plans for the different disciplines of deep space exploration. At this talk, he will share the status and plans for JPL’s space science missions for Mars, the Outer Planets and Astrophysics.

WordPress Plugins: Syndicate Press & Postie

wordpressAt the IEEE-LAC meeting on Saturday, June 8, 2013 the use and features of two WordPress plugins were presented to the audience.  These two plugins further enhance the LAC website by (1) creating a centralized location to view the announcements/events from the IEEE Region 6 website and (2) creating the ability for WordPress posts to be emailed and then to be automatically online without intervention by the local webmaster.  The plugins are both widely used by the WordPress community and have high ratings.

A PowerPoint presentation was prepared and given by Tom Snyder from the IEEE Foothill section on these plugins.  For the convenience of anyone else who would like to know more the presentation has been converted into a PDF file that is available for downloading.
