first_imgcenter column 2 14th Annual Crystal Ball “CirQue De La Salle” Delights and Astonishes Guests By JOHN BLACKSTOCK Published on Thursday, May 2, 2013 | 4:37 pm Make a comment The 14th Annual Crystal Ball, “CirQue De La Salle” was held on April 12 at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena. Crystal Ball Chairs, Pamela Jacques P’13 and Hillary Sanchez P’14, chose the theme that is self-described as a dramatic mix of circus arts and street entertainment.Pamela says, “We wanted something different than anything else we had seen in the past and something that would create great energy and fun. Guests enjoyed an evening of wonder and charm in celebration of those in the Lasallian community who help create the La Salle experience through their generosity. CirQue De La Salle was engulfed in bright colors of pinks, oranges, purples, blues and greens as guests dined at tables beautifully adorned with white feather bouquets and draped in multiple vibrant hues, as well as watching performances by contortionists, acrobats, and aerial silk artists.The night was filled with the thrill of pursuit with bidding on several dozen items during the live, super silent, and silent auctions. The Rêvez Grand (Dream Big) Auction items included tickets and dinner at the LA Phil, hockey tickets for the Anaheim Ducks, Los Angeles Dodgers tickets, Adventures to Sea World, a trip to Augusta, Georgia to attend the 2014 Masters Golf Tournament, and “I Dreamed of Africa” photo safari, just to name of few. Aside from the auctions, there was also an Opportunity Drawing where people had the chance to win a trip for two for a 7-night stay in Hawai’i, an iPad or four Disney Park Hopper passes.Over 300 guests came to congratulate this year’s Crystal Ball honorees Cristi and Steve Seidner P’09, ’12. Cristi and Steve were selected as the recipients for the 2013 Lasallian Volunteer Award. The spirit of volunteerism runs deep in the Seidner family. They have volunteered for many places and organizations that included Foothill Unity Center, Maryvale’s “Shop for the Girls at Christmas” program, synagogues, Anita Oaks School, Barnhart School, La Salle’s Parent Association, Technology Fundraising Committee, and especially the Crystal Ball. “They have been untiring in their commitment to support their children’s high school – even after they have graduated,” says Dr. Richard Gray, President.“The Crystal Ball is truly a team effort. All the amazing parent volunteers, La Salle staff, and local businesses play such an integral role in the success of the Crystal Ball. I’m truly thankful to our amazing committee, especially Co-Chair Hillary Sanchez. I couldn’t have done it without her,” says Pamela.The Crystal Ball is La Salle’s largest fundraiser of the year that allows everyone an opportunity to come together and support La Salle’s programs and activities that the School provides to the students.

Why Is the Manhattan Housing Market Slowing Down?

Many legacy contracts signed in new developments in the borough up to two years ago or more finalized their sales in Q42018 driving up the average price in Manhattan by 1.8 percent, even as the median price dropped 4.4 percent. “In healthier markets, these numbers would have moved correspondingly,” said Garrett Derderian, Director of Data and Reporting at Stribling.The borrow recorded a decline of 10 percent in total sales compared to the same period last year and was down 25 percent from the high recorded in Q42015, the report indicated. “Every quarter of 2018 saw a decrease in the number of sales over the same period one year ago, including the most recent quarter,” Derderian said. “The striking occurrence now is the number of sales hit a post-crash low. The last time we observed so few fourth-quarter sales was 2011.”Despite the decline in sales, the report revealed that sales volume in terms of dollars increased with total sales volume for Q42018 up 1.6 percent to $4.07 billion from $4.01 billion a year ago. Yet, according to Derderian, the total volume remained down from the nearly $5 billion recorded in 2015.Additionally, discounts in price listings continued to rise during the quarter in Manhattan. While the average discounts for properties in the borough were at 6.4 percent off the initial asking price in Q32018, they grew to 7.9 percent in Q4, though they weren’t evenly spread.Looking at the inventory in the area, the report found that there were 7,019 units on the market at the end of Q42018. Of these, condo units made up the largest share of the inventory with 49 percent. Radhika Ojha is an independent writer and copy-editor, and a reporter for DS News.

CATHAL MacSUIBHNE’S DONEGAL GAA BLOG: NEW STARS BORN IN BALLYBOFEY

first_imgBY CATHAL MacSUIBHNE, DONEGALDAILY.COM: The McKenna Cup has been put to bed for another year and now Donegal can firmly focus on training and catching up with the rest of the country in the fitness stakes.The experimentation continued in tonight’s final game of the competition with John O’Malley and Eoin McHugh making their debuts while Adi O’Gara, Pauric Carr and Michael Cannon, after brief cameos in the previous games, all made their first starts. O’Malley is well known for his senior exploits with Naomh Conaill and is likely destined for many more games in the county jersey. A huge honour too was bestowed on the Cloich Cheann Fhaola club, with Kevin McFadden skippering the All-Ireland Champions.The fact that a 3rd level side, in the form of Belfast teaching college St Marys, were the opposition meant Donegal’s newcomers enjoyed a bit more of a level playing field than in the previous exploits against Fermanagh and Monaghan. The lads were quick out of the blocks with Odhran MacNiallais doing the damage early on. The students found their feet though and in a high scoring affair they led by a point at the break. Caolan Ward and Kevin McFadden again impressed and with both players having played in different positions over the course of the competition, their versatility could be an asset to both Maxi Curran’s U21s and possibly Jim McGuinness’ senior squad.The high scoring continued after the change of ends; Donegal went on a scoring spree with five unasnwered points before Marys pegged it back to make it all square. There was some confusion between the score the referee had noted and that of the MacCumhaill Park scoreboard but in the end the record books will show a one point win for the hosts.The GAA season now goes up a notch with Kildare providing our next opponents in the league opener and it gives supporters an early opportunity to go back to the Graceland of Croke Park and relive some of those wonderful memories from September. From a playing point of view, following the switch of venue for the clash, it will do McGuinness’ troops no harm playing at Headquarters as opposed to Conleth’s Park in Newbridge – the players are obviously well used to it and any opportunity to play at the Mecca of football can only benefit a team.Jim spoke at the weekend of the training the team are undertaking now that their holiday is firmly in the past – Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday are all training days and the players will be glad to get back to the group dynamic and getting themselves prepared for what lies ahead. Last year McGuinness along with Adam Speer and the rest of the coaching staff got the entire panel in incredible shape and in our best moments of the Championship other teams simply couldn’t live with our relentless stamina. 2011 was a case of getting the players up to a decent level of fitness based on the individual needs of each player. Last year however, to a man the squad was operating at close to peak condition – bringing them back up to that level again while also managing the niggles and knocks, and a serious hip injury in Karl Lacey’s case, is the target over the next few months.Another goal of the management team will be to try to blend in those players who have shown well in this McKenna Cup campaign and there will be a few with an eye on at least a training spot with the panel and possibly more.It is critical for any team that wins the All-Ireland to have competition for places and to avoid having players resting on their laurels. Someone breathing down the neck of a man in possession of a Celtic Cross should drive him on to win another one.That’s all well in the future of course, for now its well done to the boys who’ve represented the jersey over the past week and all roads lead to Croker in a couple of weeks time. CATHAL MacSUIBHNE’S DONEGAL GAA BLOG: NEW STARS BORN IN BALLYBOFEY was last modified: January 16th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CATHAL MacSUIBHNE’S DONEGAL GAA BLOG: NEW STARS BORN IN BALLYBOFEYlast_img read more
