More Cool Stuff Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Front Row: Robin, Martha, Socorro, Diane. Back Row: Tina, Kaytee, Jon, Meghan, Courtney, Ann, SteveIn this Thanksgiving season, Flintridge Prep students merge a community outreach backpack drive with a Pasadena tradition known as “Share a Meal”, organized by the Pasadena Sandwich Company. For four years this tradition of inviting homeless families in Pasadena to share Thanksgiving has been upheld, and the City of Pasadena along with other community-oriented organizations have taken part in the annual event.Meghan Fink, a co-owner of the Pasadena Sandwich Company, shares that their small family business began when her and her siblings’ “grandparents founded the restaurant in the 1950s”. The restaurant has maintained its community-friendly feel ever since its founding. She continues, “When my grandparents retired, our dad opened the Pasadena Sandwich Company, and since then we continue the proud family tradition of serving fresh food as fast as we can” As a result, PSC has become a well-recognized landmark in Pasadena. More than a family business, the Pasadena Sandwich Company is the location of a Thanksgiving tradition known as “Share a Meal”, supporting Pasadena Families in Transition. Meghan Fink says that back in 1995 was when her dad, Steven Fink, started this “Thanksgiving concept”. She explains, “He believed that no one should be alone on Thanksgiving, so he opened the doors of the Pasadena Sandwich Company, and people came and brought something to contribute to the Thanksgiving meal”. The “Share a Meal” program started when Fink’s father passed away, in 2010. “Firefighter Steven Lawhorn came to us to remind us of what our dad would be doing at Thanksgiving”, recalls Fink. There after, the Fink siblings collaborated with the Pasadena Fire Department and the Pasadena Unified School District to bring back Thanksgiving “Share a Meal” in their dad’s honor, inviting homeless families in Pasadena that would appreciate a place to go, with pride, on Thanksgiving.For the past few months, Prep students have launched a backpack drive across the greater Pasadena community, with the goal of donating 300 backpacks, filled with school supplies, to Pasadena children in need. Backpacks and school supplies are provided by Sydney Paige® Inc., a Buy 1-Give 1 company supporting education for children in need within the immediate community. The culmination of these Prep students’ efforts in their community backpack drive outreach will happen on Thanksgiving Day at the “Share a Meal” event, held at the Pasadena Sandwich Company. These under-privileged families in the Pasadena area, many of who are supported by the “Pasadena Families in Transition”, will come together to share a Thanksgiving meal, and for the second year, all of the children receive a brand new Sydney Paige® backpack filled with school supplies. To participate in the Community Backpack Drive, go to www.sydneypaigeinc.com/flintprep or visit the Flintridge Bookstore & Coffee House on Foothill Avenue. With each backpack you purchase, one will be matched by Sydney Paige® Inc., and donated to a child in need within the Pasadena area. You also have the option of donating your backpack when you order online.In specific reference to the “Share a Meal” event happening this November, Fink says the Pasadena Sandwich Company, in conjunction with the Pasadena Families in Transition and Sydney Paige Inc. will offer these families “a fun-filled day in a safe environment where they are served a warm Thanksgiving meal, can participate in arts and crafts, can dress up and take photos in a photobooth, are given Blessing Bags with gift certificates and activities from the community, and every child receives a backpack with school supplies”. She concludes in the weeks leading up to the 4th annual ‘Share a Meal’ that the event “is an extraordinary day and event supported by family, friends, and our very own Pasadena and local communities!” Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Break Point 31 December 2019Family First Comment: Critics will respond, “That’s correlation, not causation.” The only way to prove causation would be to ask half a sample group to experiment with something that may harm them. That’s not ethically possible. By the way, all the studies that made us believe that cigarette smoking causes lung cancer were correlated studies too, but that was enough to convince us all.The pitfalls and perils of marijuana legalization are well-documented, but whenever we discuss that research here on BreakPoint, we are accused of not having the right research. Of course, what that typically means is we’ve used studies that contradict the very vocal advocates of weed.Well, let’s see what happens when we cite The British journal The Lancet which, along with the New England Journal of Medicine and the Journal of the American Medical Association, is considered the “gold standard” for peer-reviewed medical research. It doesn’t get more “real” than being published in The Lancet.A just-published study in the Lancet involving, among others, researchers at King’s College London, compared 900 people who had been treated for psychosis with 1,200 people who had not. Sample participants were drawn from across Europe and Brazil.Both groups were surveyed on a host of factors, including their use of marijuana and other drugs. The study’s authors concluded that “people who smoked marijuana on a daily basis were three times more likely to be diagnosed with psychosis compared with people who never used the drug. For those who used high-potency marijuana daily, the risk jumped to nearly five times.”By “high-potency” the researchers meant marijuana with a THC content of more than ten percent. Today, it’s not uncommon to read of marijuana that’s legally-sold in places like Colorado with THC content above 20 percent and, occasionally even 30 percent! Legalization advocates minimize the exponential growth in potency by saying that twenty or more years ago, Americans didn’t have access to the more potent strains, a.k.a, “the good stuff.”That misses the point by several astronomical units. The point is that those people who daily use “the good stuff” are five times more like to find themselves in a hospital suffering from delusions and hallucinations, to name only two symptoms of psychosis.Now, critics will respond, “That’s correlation, not causation.” And that’s the criticism leveled at journalist Alex Berenson, author of “Tell Your Children: The Truth about Marijuana, Mental Illness and Violence,” a book I recommend highly. But as I heard Berenson say just last week in Denver, “of course it’s correlation and not causation.” The only way to prove causation would be to ask half a sample group to experiment with something that may harm them. That’s not ethically possible. By the way, all the studies that made us believe that cigarette smoking causes lung cancer were correlated studies too, but that was enough to convince us all.Even so, writer Ron Powers doesn’t need a peer-reviewed study to convince him of the link between marijuana use and psychosis. In his 2017 book, “Nobody Cares About Crazy People,” he tells the moving story of his two sons, Dean and Kevin, who were diagnosed with schizophrenia in their late teens.As Powers tells readers, while there is a strong genetic component to schizophrenia, there is no “schizophrenia gene.” Instead, a constellation of genetic and environmental factors make people susceptible to schizophrenia. One of these, as Powers painfully learned, is heavy marijuana use, especially in your teenage years.Of course, some people will tell you that they and most people aren’t mentally ill, so there’s little if any risk. But, for a host of reasons, no one can know that with certainty. In fact, all pronouncements about how safe marijuana legalization is, overstates the case.That’s exactly what happened here in Colorado. The possible pitfalls were denied or downplayed. And since legalization, Colorado has seen a spike in marijuana-related emergency room visits by people between the ages of 13 and 20.Given the well-documented mental health risks, especially to not-fully-formed adolescent brains, the rush to legalization is the height of irresponsibility. An irresponsibility that can shatter lives. And don’t just take our word for it.https://www.breakpoint.org/marijuana-and-psychosis/

13 February 2013South Africa has once more proved that it is a destination of choice for major sporting events after hosting a successful 2013 Africa Nations Cup (Afcon), says SA Football Association (Safa) president Kirsten Nematandani.The three week-tournament concluded at Johannesburg’s National Stadium on Sunday with Nigeria being crowned champions of Africa for a third time after beating their West African neighbours Burkina Faso 1-0 in the final.“In terms of the size and behaviour of the crowds, standard of play, organisation and general atmosphere, the tournament has set a benchmark for future Afcon tournaments,” Nematandani said in a statement on Monday.‘The atmosphere was electric’“The atmosphere at the final was electric and being beamed across the globe; it again demonstrated Mzansi’s ability to host major tournaments.”Nematandani thanked President Jacob Zuma and Sport Minister Fikile Mbalula for giving the tournament their unqualified support.“To the CEO, Mvuzo Mbebe and his Afcon team, I would like to extend my special thanks. It is also vital to acknowledge the contribution made by the volunteers and all of the fans who supported the event.“Finally, I would like to acknowledge the contribution of the media who played their part in the excellent coverage of the tournament.”Crowd supportThe Safa president said despite Bafana Bafana being knocked out in the quarter finals, South Africans continued to support the tournament until its conclusion, as was witnessed in the subsequent final four games.“As a nation, we did a great job in creating a hosting environment that made all of Africa feel welcome.“This morning I woke up as a proud South African, and am now looking forward to doing it all again in 2014 when South Africa hosts the African Nation Championships.”African Nations ChampionshipThe African Nations Championship (CHAN) is played every two years, alternating with the Africa Cup of Nations. It includes national teams that feature only players who are playing in the domestic leagues of their home countries.The first tournament was hosted by Cote d’Ivoire in 2009 and won by the Democratic Republic of the Congo. In 2011, the tournament was held in Sudan and won by Tunisia.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material
Tags:#news#NYT#web President Obama visited Intel in Hillsboro, Oregon today to discuss education and technology (and this ReadWriteWeb writer attended her first Presidential media event.)Education has been the key theme as the President has travelled the country this week, following the release of his 2012 budget on Monday. The proposed budget calls for a $2 billion increase in education spending — $77.4 billion total, including $90 million to create ARPA-ED, an education technology agency modeled on DARPA, the Defense Department research agency responsible for, among other things, ARPANET, the precursor to the Internet.That intersection between technology, education, research, and jobs forms the cornerstone of the President’s domestic agenda. In particular, technology and jobs creation have been the focus of the last two days of his travels, as President Obama was joined by executives from some of the country’s leading technology companies – including Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Apple CEO Steve Jobs – for a private dinner in San Francisco last night. The visit to Intel’s chip manufacturing plant here in Oregon coincides with Obama’s naming of Intel CEO Paul Otellini to the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. Otellini has long been a critic of the President’s economic policies stating in the past that he doesn’t think the administration understands “what it takes to create jobs.” But jobs creation, particularly those in the high tech sector, is something that the President is pushing.Intel is also a key stop as part of the President’s budget and agenda because the company has long been a strong supporter of STEM education (science, technology, engineering, and math). The President’s visit reiterates his support for these sorts of efforts that will help create a high-tech workforce. The President met with several student groups during the tour of the Intel facility, including seventh grade girls who are learning to program with LEGO Mindstorms.The President praised Intel for its commitment to American manufacturing, technology and innovation and he said that the company was a model for its STEM education efforts. “We can’t win the future if we lose the race to educate our children,” said the President, but he reassured the crowd of Intel employees that “America will win.” audrey watters Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market
A steamy screen kiss that Koena Mitra shares with American actor Kevin Sorbo in her international debut, The Story Of Naomi , is currently doing the rounds on the Internet.Although sources in the film’s unit have claimed the scene was leaked, most others in the industry feel the makers of the film were merely going with the current trend of deliberately giving away to sundry websites in order to fuel publicity.The Story Of Naomi, being billed as Koena’s ‘Hollywood debut’ is actually directed by an American filmmaker of Indian origin Ash Gupta, known so far as a fashion photographer.The ‘leaked’ liplock scene between Koena Mitra & Kevin Sorbo.Sorbo apart, the other notable Hollywood link in the film is producer Michael Hirshenson, best known as a casting associate in films such as Jurassic Park, Mrs Doubtfire, A Few Good Men, Home Alone 2 and When Harry Met Sally. The Story Of Naomi made news when it was announced a while back owing to the sensational character Koena is touted to be playing.She plays Naomi, the film’s bisexual protagonist who has an affair with the film’s hero as well as a woman.Going by the first- look poster, which has Koena striking a provocative pose with a female co- star, Gupta’s film looks like a low- budget sexy movie.Sorbo is best known as a TV star on shows such as Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Andromeda . His Hollywood outing so far has mostly been marked by B-flicks such as Kull The Conqueror, Bitch Slap and Fire Down Below . While on Koena, the Bollywood Desert starlet has hardly tasted success in Hindi films in her career spanning just over half a decade. In fact, she has made more news with her reported nose job that went wrong (Koena of course denied having gone for a surgery) than genuine acting skills or stardom.advertisementWith no clear blockbuster to her credit, she is best known for glamour roles in films such as Apna Sapna Money Money , Musafir and Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena . She was last seen in a starring role in the 2008 dud, Anamika . Around the time Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena was releasing in 2005, a section of the grapevine suggested she was having a fling with Fardeen Khan, her co- star in the film.Koena however had vehemently denied the rumour.Coming back to The Story Of Naomi, the film also stars Chris Deveccio and Diep Tran in supporting roles.The film is slated for release sometime next year.For more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.
Commonwealth champion M Suranjoy Singh’s mother Tampaklei Singh had dreamt of watching him strut his wares at the Olympics. But she was not destined to see her boxer son play as she died of cancer while he was fighting at the Asian Games last year.Suranjoy received the shocking news only after coming back from Guangzhou. He deeply regretted that as his mother would not be able to see him play in London next year, though he is yet to qualify for the Olympics.The 52kg-category boxer will go into the first Olympic qualifying tournament this month determined to live her mother’s dream. The World Championships start in Baku, Azerbaijan, on September 22.Suranjoy, before leaving for France to prepare for the World Championships on Friday, said: “My mother wanted to see me play in the Olympic since I was a child. Unfortunately, she is no more but I want to fulfil her dream by qualifying for the Olympics,” he told Mail Today. Suranjoy is so determined because he has gone though a tough time when the demise of mother had pushed him to despair. “My mother’s death was the lowest point in my career. I couldn’t sleep for months and used to close myself behind the doors at the National Institute of Sports in Patiala after training,” he said.The circumstances led to Suranjoy’s dwindling interest in training and his game went downhill for some time. It reflected when the boxer, who had clinched seven gold medals, including the Asian Championships and the Commonwealth Games, failed to win even a bronze at the invitational tournament in Cuba in May.advertisementSuranjoy had started imagining his Olympic dream getting shattered. He knew his mental situation would lead him nowhere. He wanted to come out of the rut, so he discussed the problem with the team’s assistant coach C Kuttaappa and a psychologist Dr Alva.They advised Suranjoy to get himself engaged in recreational activities and be more open to his teammates. He took their word as gospel truth and started training wholeheartedly.”Their advice helped me take the load off my mind and I took a resolve to take the World Championships seriously,” he said.Howsoever strong his resolve may be but his road to London is not expected to be a cakewalk.The World Championships will see the strongest ever competition, the reason being that the first of the two qualifiers – the other is in Astana, Kazathstan in April – for the Asian countries.Going by history, only one Indian boxer, Antaresh L Lakra (57kg), has so far qualified for the Olympics through a World Championships, in 2007. All others, including the 2008 bronze medallist Vijender Kumar had qualified through the second or third qualifying tournaments.Unperturbed by history, Suranjoy believe his best shot would surely earn him an Olympic berth.”There are two opportunities for the qualification and if I qualify in the first attempt, I will be tension free and my focus will entirely shift to the Olympics. But if I miss this chance I will have to wait for April and that may affect my Olympic preparations,” he said.”India has never had a glittering record at the Worlds, but let’s not ponder over the past. I believe in my potential and if I give my 100 per cent I will qualify.” Suranjoy said he might have to overcome the challenge from Chinse, Uzbek, Khazak and Philippino boxers. “They are good in my category. They are tough boxers to beat but they can be beaten if I give my best shot to live my mother’s dream,” he said.

Sunrisers Hyderabad were cruising towards a win as usual suspects David Warner and Jonny Bairstow stitched another strong opening stand for the hosts.However, Delhi Capitals made a strong comeback, picking up Sunrisers’ last eight wickets for just 15 runs. Barring Warner and Bairstow, none of the other SRH batsmen managed to get a double-digit score on Sunday.advertisementKagiso Rabada, Chris Morris and Keemo Paul were the stars with the ball for Delhi Capitals as the pace bowling trio picked up all 10 wickets between it.Also Read | Ziva Dhoni wins hearts at Eden Gardens after Chennai Super Kings thrash KKR.

England performance just the start for Chelsea whizkid Hudson-Odoiby Ansser Sadiq8 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveChelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi promises that he can show much more quality in the coming weeks and months.Fans were delighted with his performance for the England under-21s in their 5-1 win against Austria.He scored a great brace and was a threat throughout the game.And the youngster thinks that he is just getting up to speed after fully recovering from the Achilles injury he suffered in April.”I thought to myself as soon as I come back that I just need to get up to speed and get my fitness back,” he told reporters.”I think once that happens gradually my dribbling and everything will come back to what it was.”Now I am feeling a bit more confident to get on the ball and do my stuff. As the games go on I will get fitter, get more opportunities to dribble at players and I already feel better now.”I definitely think I can improve. I am not a perfect player. No one is a perfect player, I think that every day when I go onto a pitch I want to try my best, work hard and keep improving. I say to myself, keep going, keep working hard and hopefully more opportunities will come.”I wouldn’t say it is my pre-season, I think it is back to normal. I think when I was training it was like my pre-season getting back to fitness.”Now, I am back in the mix, training and playing. Now everything is back to normal so I need to keep working hard and hopefully get fitter.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your say
February 28, 2014 454 Views Bureau of Economic Analysis Consumer spending GDP 2014-02-28 Tory Barringer After delivering a promising first report at the end of January, the government on Friday scaled back its estimate for fourth-quarter economic growth.In the second of three planned reports, the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) put gross domestic product (GDP) growth at an annual rate of 2.4 percent in Q4 2013, down from its initial estimate of 3.2 percent in January and its final report of 4.1 percent in the third-quarter.Full-year growth is estimated at 1.9 percent compared to 2.8 percent in 2012.According to BEA, the latest downward revision stemmed from a smaller increase in consumer spending than what was previously reported. First estimated at 3.3 percent, spending growth was scaled back to 2.6 percent.Still, the agency noted personal consumption expenditures contributed heavily to fourth-quarter growth. Also reflected in the latest data are positive contributions from exports, nonresidential fixed investment, and private inventory investment.Putting a drag on GDP were declines in residential fixed investment and federal government spending—down 12.8 percent, a lasting effect of October’s shutdown. Imports, which count as a subtraction in GDP, also increased.Paying close attention to the latest report will be Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, who in a Senate Banking Committee hearing Thursday was questioned on how the recent economic slowdown will affect the Fed’s plans to taper asset purchases.Her response was noncommittal: “Part of that softness may reflect adverse weather conditions, but at this point it’s difficult to discern exactly how much.”Nevertheless, Yellen and the rest of the Federal Open Market Committee will have to reach an answer on that question ahead of its March meeting, which will fall before the government’s final estimate of fourth-quarter economic expansion.The committee voted in its last two meetings to curb its monthly purchases of Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities. Further cuts (or reverses) will be based on how the economy continues to perform.GDP won’t be the only factor the committee will have to weigh in its March decision. Also figuring in will be recent employment reports, which have been painted a discouraging picture, weakness in existing-home sales, and a decline in new homebuilding.On the other hand, indicators released this week indicate a possible comeback from the current slump: New home sales surpassed expectations in January, and pending sales have at least refrained from dropping any further. in Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, News
