To My Fellow Rotarians, Friends and Supporters:
 
As of March 12, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the COVID-19 outbreak as a pandemic, stating that:
WHO has been assessing this outbreak around the clock and we are deeply concerned both by the alarming levels of spread and severity, and by the alarming levels of inaction.
We have therefore made the assessment that COVID-19 can be characterized as a pandemic.
Here in the Commonwealth, Gov. Charlie Baker declared a state of emergency last Tuesday, March 11, 2020, as the number of coronavirus cases doubled in just 24 hours and rose to 92 cases. Leaders and the representatives of Massachusetts municipalities called for a coordinated and "cohesive" response to the coronavirus outbreak. 
As an active and responsible partner of the Boston community and most importantly in response to this pandemic, all club activities including service projects, committee meetings and other planned events will be postponed until further notice.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has reminded everyone that, 
Several countries have demonstrated that this virus can be suppressed and controlled. 
The challenge for many countries who are now dealing with large clusters or community transmission is not whether they can do the same – it’s whether they will.  
Friends, we will do our part in promoting social distancing so all our meetings and activities are postponed for now. Rest assured that we are monitoring the situation from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the CDC, and we shall continue to keep you informed. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy.
 
Yours truly,
 
David Manzi
President, Boston Rotary #7

John Ferguson, Vice President, Webster Bank and Satya Mitra, President of "The Guru Tax & Financial Services, Inc."
 
Also, learn about Rotary's Polio National Immunization Day, in which Satya recently participated!

Dr. John L Keller’s career in atmospheric science research & development started in the early 1970s. As a Senior Research Meteorologist at AIR Worldwide in Boston, Dr. Keller developed and implemented a model for the extreme wind climate of Northwest Europe. This model is part of AIR's "EuroCAT" modeling system, widely used by the property and casualty insurance industry to manage climate risk. Prior to joining AIR Worldwide, Dr. Keller was a staff meteorologist at MIT Lincoln Laboratory in Lexington, MA. At Lincoln, he provided scientific support for the FAA's Integrated Terminal Weather System and NASA's Wake Vortex Program.

In 2005 Dr. Keller founded Weather Analytics, a company that provides data and analytical tools for managing climate risk. In addition to giving numerous conference and public presentations, Dr. Keller has published in many scientific journals, including Nature, the Journal of Atmospheric Sciences and Monthly Weather Review. 

Dr. Keller will be giving a non-partisan, hopeful, expert presentation on climate change. He is a volunteer with the Citizens’ Climate Lobby, a national nonprofit organization whose activities include offering speakers for community organizations. Advisors to the Citizens’ Climate Lobby include former U.S. Secretary of State George P. Shultz and former NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies Director Dr. James E. Hansen. This talk is designed to educate, enable, and entertain. It may include short videos, slides, stories, and time for audience input and questions after the talk. In his talk, Dr. Keller will address a number of questions, including: 


1. How is global climate change expected to impact life here and around the world for us and future generations?

2. Are there technical solutions that could significantly alter the climate's current trajectory? 


3. What specific actions can I take to speed up the deployment of these solutions? 
After participating in this meeting, members will feel (1) hopeful for a future stable climate, (2) energized, (3) inspired to get involved! 
 

Join us for our first Vocational Talk of 2020!

When a lawyer named Paul Harris, a coal dealer, a mining engineer, and a merchant tailor first met in 1905 in Chicago, they gave birth to Rotary and, by the nature of their diverse occupations, to the association’s most distinctive feature – the classification principle. Today, the classification principle, though modified, remains a cornerstone of Rotary. 

  • Parts of your job you find most rewarding and most difficult.
  • Forecast employment opportunities in your field for the coming decade.
  • Advice you would give persons entering your career field.
  • How your profession is being impacted by technology, government regulations, and environmental factors.
  • Ethical issues you face at work, and how the Rotary 4-Way Test and the Rotary Code of Conduct helps you deal with them.
On January 15, we welcome Angela Spears and Jose Sierra to give us some insight into their careers, their journey as Rotarians as it relates to Rotary and "Service Above Self"! 
 
 
Happy New Year!!
