14th Annual Crystal Ball “CirQue De La Salle” Delights and Astonishes Guests

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.

The report takes data from several listing systems throughout New York and highlights many key metrics to provide a clear picture of notable market changes. These metrics include new listings, pending sales, the amount of days home are on the market, average sales price, the percentage of the list price received, housing affordability, the inventory of homes for sale, and the months supply of inventory.The report mentions the national unemployment rate registered at 4.1 percent in October this year, meaning joblessness has not been this low since December 2000. With mortgage rates consistently holding at 3.9 percent, the NYSAR believes this combination of factors helps “keep the pool of potential buyers full, even during the so-called off season of home sales.” The NYSAR also notes that historically, mortgage rates have averaged around 6 percent.In October 2017, pending sales measured at 11,823, a 10.4 percent increase compared to the same time last year. Closed sales measured at 12,178 and increased 3.7 percent compared to October 2016, showing the market to be active according to the NYSAR.Homes for sale were down in October compared to the same time last year, showing a 6.6 percent decrease and landing at 69,321 units. It’s worth mentioning that the NYSAR believes there is reason to remain positive even with lower inventory. “There are several signs of impending inventory recovery as sellers become more confident and builders embark upon projects designed to meet demand,” the report stated. The median sales price last month went up compared to last year, with the average sale price being $249,900, a 9.1 percent increase from $229,000 last year. The months supply of inventory was down 9 percent compared to October 2016, which the NYSAR believes will continue to be the case next year and possibly for all of 2018. The percent of list price received at sale rose 0.5 percent, from 96.5 percent last year to 97 percent in October 2017.To view the full report, click here. Subscribelast_img read more

Whale Evolution: Hurry Up and Wait

first_imgWhales evolved really fast, then just swam around with nothing to do for tens of millions of years.  “Whales Evolved in the Blink of an Eye” wrote Brett Israel for Live Science about a new study that claims “Whales evolved explosively fast into a spectacular array of shapes and sizes” about 35 million years ago, but then pretty much stopped evolving for 25 million years thereafter.    Over a period of 5 million years, “like the blink of an eye” according to Graham Slater of UCLA, something dramatic happened: “whale evolution ignited.  Whales began as basically similar body types and evolved into everything from porpoises to blue whales over the next 5 million years,” Brett Israel wrote.  This is known as the “explosive radiation hypothesis” (kind of like a big bang in whale origins).  With this package came all kinds of goodies like sonar, large brains, baleen filtering systems, and complex sociality.  How?  By evolution, silly; or as teens like to say, whatever.  “Whatever conditions allowed modern whales to persist allowed them to evolve into unique, disparate modes of life, and those niches largely have been maintained throughout most of their history.”  That’s Michael Alfaro talking.  He’s an evolutionist at UCLA, too.  He’s an expert.  He should know.    So let’s get this “explosive radiation hypothesis” straight.  A dog-size mammal walks into the sea some 48 million years ago and starts blubbering, becoming some kind of generic whale by 35 million years ago.  Then, within a blink of an eye (5 million years), we get blue whales, right whales, sperm whales, porpoises, dolphins, baleen whales, “exploding” into the oceans, by, whatever.  Something gave them sonar, large brains, baleen and complex sociality.  What was it?  Evolution.  Wasn’t evolution supposed to consist of the gradual accumulation of numerous, successive, slight modifications?  Whatever.  OK, then what happened?  “Those differences were probably in place by 25 million years ago, at the latest, and for many millions of years, they have not changed very much,” Slater said.  Will that be on the test? Environmentalists should be outraged.  The conditions that allowed for this spectacular evolution of whales “have been maintained” for 25 million years.  By whom?  Who is responsible for this intolerable status quo?  Life is languishing.  Species are going extinct.  Life needs to evolve or perish!  (They can’t blame humans, because Homo had not evolved yet; sorry, ACLU.)  What a fine kettle of fish this is.  Mother Nature has left the whales in a stagnant ocean where they can no longer evolve, and we can’t blame the humans.  Evolution was to be a constant fluid stream of change.  Darwin is all red-faced over there, angry at his UCLA supporters talking about “explosive radiation” instead of gradual change.    Take a moment to savor this wonderfully elegant theory that Charlie Dearest (07/18/2006, 07/03/2007) brought to mankind.  Realize that whale evolution has often been presented by his disciples as one of the best examples.  Yes, it certainly is.(Visited 34 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Countdown for CWG begins, security cover in place

first_imgFrom helicopters to snipers and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), the national capital will witness unprecedented security arrangements for any sports event ever in the country as the 19th Commonwealth Games starts rolling out on Sunday.A policeman checks the bags of a tourist at the entrance of the Jama Masjid ahead of CWG.Over 100,000 security personnel including gun-toting commandos have being deployed to thwart any threat to the sporting extravaganza.Australian Sports Minister Mark Arbib, who had recently taken a round of the Games Village had said, “Security is very tight and even I had trouble getting in.”While Delhi Police Commissioner Y.S. Dadwal is the overall in charge of the security, the Home Ministry keeps a close tab on all arrangements with Home Minister P Chidambaram taking a keen interest.Defence helicopters with commandos will do an aerial recce of the Games Village and stadiums at regular intervals.The helicopters will receive additional support from three Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) which will also be pressed into service to carry out surveillance and keep vigil at regular intervals.According to various security agency sources, security personnel deployed for the Games include about 175 paramilitary companies (about 18,000 personnel) including 3,000 commandos, 100 anti-sabotage teams, 200 specially trained dogs and 15 bomb disposal squads..Moreover, sources said about 150 personnel of the Delhi Police’s Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT) have been trained by the Indian Air Force and the NSG to shoot down suspicious manned or unmanned “flying objects”.Not to forget the Chemical, Biological, Radiation and Nuclear (CBRN) teams of the NDRF and the Army being deployed as an extra caution. Besides the Army has also been put on standby, the sources said.advertisementWhile there is no intelligence input to pinpoint any specific threat, one cannot take any chances, they said.”We work not just based on specific inputs but also on threat perception. The focus of both domestic and international media is on the Games and any small incident will get lot of publicity,” a source said.Helping out the security personnel are a slew of gadgets that have been bought for the Games including baggage and car scanners, pass readers, integrated CCTV cameras and others.An integrated communication room has been set up at the Police Headquarters here, which gives round-the-clock access to all venues through the CCTV network.Security has also been beefed up in tourist hot spots also. From airport to the Metro link and malls, security has been tightened to ensure that no untoward incident takes place.Bunkers have been set up at many spots in the national capital. Besides the paramilitary forces, who are assisting the Delhi Police, personnel of other state police has also been roped in including those from Maharashtra and Haryana.”Such large security arrangements have never been put in place for any sports event. Months of planning and meetings have preceded the security cover that you see,” a senior police official said.The Home Ministry in a statement said, “Adequate security arrangements have been put in place in order to provide security to the sportspersons, officials, spectators, invitees, volunteers and workforce as well as to the entire city of Delhi.”CWG: Guidelines issued for spectatorsThe Home Ministry on Saturday said that adequate security arrangements has been put in place for the Commonwealth Games and issued a set of guidelines for spectators just hours ahead of the Opening Ceremony.”Adequate security arrangements have been put in place in order to provide security to the sportspersons, officials, spectators, invitees, volunteers and workforce as well as to the entire city of Delhi,” the Ministry said in a statement.It said that along with the tickets, the Organising Committee of the Commonwealth Games has circulated Do’s and Don’ts for ticket-holders.”While reiterating those Do’s and Don’ts, all those who will visit the Games venues should also observe the Guidelines,” it said.It asked the spectators to plan in advance taking into account the possible traffic in order to reach the venue on time. The guidelines said one should be prepared to stand in queue.”You should carry your ticket or accreditation card (together with the ticket) without fail. No one will be admitted without a ticket or an accreditation card (together with the ticket).”Flap Barriers and RF readers have been installed to ‘read’ the ticket and the accreditation card. If the reading shows the ticket or accreditation card as ‘invalid’, a second attempt will be made, and if the second attempt too shows the ticket or the accreditation card as ‘invalid’, the person will not be admitted,” the statement said.advertisementEvery person will be frisked and checked. The guidelines said it is possible that the flap barrier or the RF reader may fail sometimes, for a few minutes, owing to technological glitches.In such a case, the security personnel will do a thorough manual check of the person, the ticket and the accreditation card and one must be prepared to subject themselves to the manual check. In addition, every person will be frisked and checked.With regard to parking, the guidelines said only a few vehicles or cars with authorised ‘vehicle access passes’ will be allowed to go up to the designated points in the games venues.”If you are travelling by a car with an authorised ‘vehicle access pass’, you will be required to alight at a designated point. You must walk the remaining distance to the entry gates.”It said visitors who travel by vehicles which do not have a ‘vehicle access pass’ may use the Park and Ride or the Park and Walk schemes.The Ministry also requested asked citizens to use public transport as far as possible.”The Do’s and Dont’s and these ‘Guidelines’ will apply to every visitor and there will be no relaxation and no exception will be made in any case. All are requested to cooperate,” it said.- With inputs from PTIlast_img read more

Anoop Kumar to accompany MC Mary Kom at London Games

first_imgMC Mary Kom will not be alone when she begins her London Olympics campaign on Sunday.As reported by Mail Today earlier, Mary’s coach Charles Atkinson has not accompanied her to the Games, and that had raised doubts about the five-time world champion’s preparedness for her participation in the 51kg category.However, in a release issued on Thursday, India’s acting chef de mission and Indian Amateur Boxing Federation secretary general PK Muralidharan Raja stated that Mary will be accompanied by the chief coach of the national women’s team, Anoop Kumar, since she’s the only Indian woman to qualify.On the issue of Atkinson not being given accreditation, Raja said: “Mr Charles Atkinson, who has been coach with Mary Kom for the past six months, is a professional WBC coach and has trained Thai WBC boxers in Thailand. AIBA does not permit any boxing coach who does not have an AIBA 3-star certification to be coaches at Olympics.””As per rules, only those who are AIBA-approved and accredited are permitted to participate as coaches.”last_img read more
