In hopes of expanding our audience to more youthful folks who hang out on other platforms besides facebook, I've started an Instagram page here: https://www.instagram.com/napars1/ I'm still trying to figure out how to use that to best advantage. Maybe I should recruit a 20-something to help? Wish me luck. Peace. -Wade, admin.
All NAPARS members in good standing as of 7/15/19 have been sent the latest issue of The Accident Reconstruction Journal, direct from the publisher, Victor Craig. If you haven't seen it yet, check your spam box, Vic works hard to get through the various filters, but sometimes even his best efforts are thwarted.
Features this month include:
The latest NAPARS News, July 2019, is OUT. I have emailed a copy to all active members, and posted it in the Reference Library, found here: https://www.napars.org/reference-library after logging into the webpage.
Sections this month include:
- The President's Message
- Use It Or Lose It practice problems
- The Mailbox Review
- Passings and Transitions.
- Andy Rich and Michelle Fish-Rich authored an introductory article on Monte Carlo analysis.
- The "Blast From The Past" is a 1992 article on calculating bicycle speed from gear by David Tyler (compliments of Victor Craig at The Accident Reconstruction Journal, Thanks, Vic!).
- My Miscellaneous Ramblings column discusses my favorite books (both recon-related and not).
- The newsletter editor, Susan, has a message and a request for members.
We hope you enjoy it.
I'm building the mailing list for the May/June ARJ now. It should be out in just over a week or so. If your membership lapsed after 5/15/2019, and you haven't renewed yet, you're not on that guest list. You can always log in to check your status, or ping me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions. Renewal is easy - either online or with an old-fashioned check. We can accommodate either!

Regarding trailer wheel separation, a couple new resource items have been added to the Reference Library, and some online resources are listed on our facebook page today: https://www.facebook.com/National-Assoc-of-Professional-Accident-Reconstruction-Specialists-164004350314078/
A fairly complete contents listing for major articles, and many minor ones as well, has been posted in the Reference Library, titled "ARJ Index as of 03APR2019". You can open it in Google's SHEETS software, or save it to your computer and use Excel. Press "<CNTRL> F" for "FIND" to search for keywords of interest. The listing has all cover-listed articles from 1989-2003, and a more comprehensive listing including authors for 2004-2019. It's a work in progress, and I'll update the file as I get more of the early issues added. Peace. -Wade
