Fifty years ago Tuesday, the expansion Los Angeles Kings were born

Happy 50th anniversary to the Los Angeles Kings! 1CB Chairman Alan Rothenberg was interviewed in the LA Times article titled, “Fifty years ago Tuesday, the expansion Los Angeles Kings were born.” Alan discussed Jack Kent Cooke’s impact on hockey in Los Angeles, and some of the struggles he faced in building what is today, an incredibly successful franchise. Read the full article here: http://www.latimes.com/sports/la-sp-kings-50-years-elliott-20160209-9-column.html

latimes.com There was no shortage of applicants for an expansion franchise in Los Angeles when the insular, six-team NHL decided to double in size for the 1967-68 season. Five groups submitted bids, giving the league's Board of Governors many options when it met in February 1966.

SECURE PASSWORDS 101! We have a bad habit of using the same password for everything. The average professional has close to 50 passwords that they have to remember in their combined personal and professional worlds. That is a lot of passwords to remember, so what do we do? We use the same password for everything so we can remember it. Hackers know this and will use a hacked password on a long list of known sites to gain access. The success rate of this tactic is around 30%. To keep you safe, use unique passwords for all sites or applications you use, especially if they have a financial transaction function or contain personal information about you.
