Default 2017 CAS Top News Items

Interesting that 3 of the top 5 News Items for the CAS related directly to the Exams.

http://www.casact.org/press/index.cf...articleID=3910

I would be interested in hearing what the AO community would say are the top 2 or 3 (actuarially-related) news items as it relates directly to your work or to your participation in the CAS.

I guess the ranking is based on view count.

I'm pretty sure a fellow appearing on Jeopardy is pretty low on the impact-o-meter for me.

That was my thinking as well. That's why I started this thread to see what was more impactful.

To be sure, the TBE announcement would seem to be a big thing (bigger than the announced MAS-I Exams, IMO).

But I'm sure that there were other items (publications of monographs or ASOP changes, etc.) that rank higher than the Jeopardy! appearance.
