Col. Marianne S Waldrop, USMC (Ret) Ph.D. Jul 12, 2019
"The Very Few, The Very Proud: Women Who Succeeded in the U.S. Marine Corps!"

Email: waldropms@aol.com

Bio: Marianne Waldrop is the youngest of four children from a U.S. Marine Corps family and was born and raised on the east coast.  In 1987, she graduated from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill with a BA in Math and in 1989, she graduated with an MS in Computer Science from Naval Post graduate School in Monterey, CA.  Subsequent to graduation, she served as a project manager for Marine Corps signals intelligence systems.  After this tour, Marianne resigned her commission to work in the information technology industry in San Diego; however, this venture in “corporate America” was short-lived (2 years) due to her recall from the reserves for post-9-11 intelligence operations in support of U.S. Central Command, MacDill Air Force Base, Tampa, Florida. She retired in 2011 and earned a Ph.D. in Leadership Studies from Univ. of San Diego in May 2016.

Her research investigated formative experiences and factors influencing highly successful women military leaders.  In over a two year period, with a generous research grant from the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation, Marianne ultimately completed her dissertation entitled: Understanding Women Leaders in a Male-Dominated Profession:  A Study of the United States Marine Corps’ Women Generals.

Brian Keating Jul 19, 2019
Praise for Losing the Nobel Prize

Bio- Brian Keating is a professor of physics at the Center for Astrophysics & Space Sciences (CASS) in the Department of Physics at the University of California, San Diego. He is a public speaker, inventor, and an expert in the study of the universe’s oldest light, the cosmic microwave background (CMB), using it to learn about the origin and evolution of the universe. Keating is a pioneer in the search for the earliest physical evidence of the inflationary epoch,[1] the theorized period of expansion of space in the early universe directly after the Big Bang. Physicists predict that this evidence will reveal itself as a particular pattern in the way CMB light is polarized; this pattern is referred to as a B-mode pattern. He is the author of the book " Praise for Losing the Nobel Prize"

"Think Like a Dog: How Dogs Teach Us to Be Happy in Life and Successful at Work."

Scott's new book offers metaphor-driven life tips such as how to communicate effectively, living in the moment, knowing when to bark (or speak up) and chasing cars (or goals).

MacDonald, who also serves on Del Mar's Finance Committee and has written philanthropic books, was introduced to Sadie about four years ago by his son, who rescued the dog in Texas but was unable to keep her.

Since then, MacDonald said the dog has taught him various life lessons that he now hopes to pass on to his readers.
