New Planetarium for Orange Coast College

Orange Coast College was founded 70 years ago in Orange County, California on a portion of the deactivated Santa Ana Army Airbase. Many of the original buildings were repurposed for student and faculty housing, library, gymnasium, and concert hall.

In the early 1950’s, architect Richard Neutra redesigned the campus, leaving many of the original buildings intact and adding modernist structures including lecture halls and a theater. Also built during this time was a 35 seat planetarium.

In the 1970s, many of the original Army buildings were replaced by architect William Blurock.

As part of a 2015 plan to update the campus, a new $20 million planetarium is in the process of being built. The project broke ground in 2016, and the estimated opening is for fall semester, 2018. Not only will the new planetarium serve Orange Coast College, but it will also serve grades k-12 and the surrounding community at large.

The new planetarium will have 129 seats, as opposed to the 35 seats that the old planetarium housed.

Retired professor Mary McChesney has contributed $1 million to help fund a Foucault pendulum for the new planetarium – the only one of it’s kind in Orange County. A Foucault pendulum is a device that demonstrates the rotation of the Earth.

The donation was made in honor of Mary McChesney’s late partner, Adalyn Bonin, who had also been a retired professor from Orange Coast College. Both professors retired in 1983, McChesney from teaching English and Spanish, and Bonin from teaching German.

Mary McChesney had been an ongoing contributor to the Orange Coast College Foundation. She also was a regular contributor to scholarships.

Doug Bennet, director of the Orange Coast College Foundation said, “Technology has changed so much for planetariums that we really needed to build something new.This is something special for OCC.”

Paul Mampilly Achievements In Investment Management

Paul Mampilly is famous for being one of the most respected investment advisors in the world. The United States based investor has transformed the lives of many people in his career. Paul started his finance career by working as an assistant portfolio manager in an institution known as the Bankers Trust that was found on Wall Street in the year 1991.

After some time, the businessman was given an opportunity to manage multi-million dollar accounts at the prestigious Deutsche Bank. His success at this company made him acquire a position at Kinetic Assets Management where he worked as the hedge fund manager. In a very short duration, the company improved its sales, registering a growth of over twenty-six percent. Paul’s success at the firm forced Barron to name him as one of the best hedge fund managers in the world.

Paul Mampilly came into the limelight when working at the famous Templeton Foundation. The organization decided to start a competition where the contestants were told to build investments using fifty-five million. In just one year, the hedge fund manager managed to grow the investment to eighty-eight million, proving his great skills. The growth in the investment took place when the finance industry was experiencing the 2008 crisis. However, Paul realized that while working as a hedge fund manager in the prestigious companies, he only assisted the few individuals in the society. This realization forced the businessman to venture into a different world where he was focused on educating masses about making great fortunes.

While working in different companies, Paul Mampilly discovered that if he could use newspaper publishing, then he could reach a huge number of people in various parts of the world. Paul discovered that millions of people were going to get the help they needed to grow their investments if only he could start a newsletter. Several months later, the hedge fund manager established the well-known Profits Unlimited, a newsletter that was focusing on assisting the middle-class investor. The success of the newspaper encouraged Paul to establish two more, known as True Momentum and Extreme Fortunes. Paul hopes that more people will reach their dreams through his publishing.
