The Campaign to Save Lives funded the animal shelter’s Animal Care Center, a 35,000-square-foot addition to the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA opened in 2014.The campaign was closed thanks to a $4 million donation to the Campaign to Save Lives by the estate of the late Remy Louis Chatain, Jr., a Pasadena resident since 2004. Chatain, a Los Angeles native, inherited his family’s design firm, C.W. Stockwell. The company is famous for its hand printed wallpapers and fabrics, which includes the iconic “Martinique” pattern wallpaper, still found on the walls of the Beverly Hills Hotel.Chatain loved animals and had a special bond with dogs. He adopted three small dogs that he found in the alley behind the company warehouse in Los Angeles. Chatain told friends that he would leave part of his estate to a humane society because he wanted to make a difference for more animals.“We are very thankful to Remy L. Chatain, Jr. for choosing to support the Pasadena Humane Society. His support is a testament to our community’s love of animals,” says Kristina Lamas, Vice President of Development at the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA.The Campaign to Save Lives began in 2009. The campaign was co-chaired by Bob Fidler and Nancy Plamann, joined by honorary committee co-chairs Weta and Allen Mathies.Chatain’s donation joins the more than 315 other donors that enabled the construction of the Animal Care Center. The PHS Board of Directors was among the campaign’s donors, as was the City of Glendale.“We are thrilled by the response of our donors for making our capital campaign a success. We are now able to better serve the community with our state-of-the-art animal care facility,” adds Bob Fidler, Campaign to Save Lives Campaign Co-Chair.The Animal Care Center includes a low-cost spay/neuter and vaccination clinic, a behavior and training center, boarding kennels and an expanded retail store.Since opening, the Animal Care Center has provided over 6,000 free or low-cost spay and neuter surgeries, 11,000 pet vaccinations, and implanted 1,800 microchips. The shelter now offers dog training classes six days a week with an expanded schedule, including puppy classes, agility and nose work training, as well as instructor and pet CPR seminars.“The Animal Care Center has exceeded our expectations.” says Steve McNall, President and CEO of the Pasadena Humane Society. “It has enabled us to provide affordable, essential services to thousands of pet owners in our community, further strengthening the bond between people and their pets.”About the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCAThe Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA is an open door, community-funded center, which provides all animals a place where they receive a safe haven, care and respect.

first_img Press Trust Of India First Published: 5th December, 2019 04:33 IST 2018 World Championships silver medallist Sonia Chahal (57kg) and Youth World champion Jyoti Gulia (51kg) stormed into the quarter-finals of the fourth Elite Women’s National Boxing Championships on Wednesday. Chahal, who won the 57kg gold in 2016 and bronze in 2017, endured stiff resistance from All India Police’s Sandhyarani Devi in 57kg before coming out winner 4-1.”I started slow but was able to go on all-out attack in the third round. Overall, I am happy with my performance. Getting the gold here is important for me as it will give me the confidence to play the trials for the Olympic qualifiers. I hope to give my best and get the gold,” said Chahal after the bout.Youth Olympian and Youth World Champion Jyoti, representing the Railways, however, had a much tougher time in the ring. Chandigarh’s India Open silver medallist Monika proved to be quite a challenge for Jyoti, who needed to dig deep to edge past her opponent with a 3-2 victory. Cologne World Cup gold medallist Meenakumari Devi, who is also the defending champion in 54kg, didn’t need to exert much effort as she was declared winner by RSC (Referee Stop Contest) in Round 3 against UP’s Kanika Chaudhary. Cologne World Cup silver medallist Pwilao Basumatary also made an impressive start to her gold medal quest in 64kg against Delhi’s Aarti Rawal. The Assam pugilist, representing RSPB, emerged winner by dint of RSC in Round 3.Later, 2019 President’s Cup (Indonesia) gold medallist Monika landed a strong flurry of punches in her 48kg bout to record a commanding 5-0 win over Himachal Pradesh’s Jyotika Bisht. Punjab and Chandigarh’s boxers put up a dazzling display as usual. Minakshi (48kg), Riya Rani (54kg), Manu Badhan (75kg) and Parminder Kaur (81kg) put Punjab on the winners’ column. Chandigarh’s Ritu progressed in 57kg via an RSC win in Round 2 over Jammu & Kashmir’s Neha Bhagat, while Neema (64kg) emerged 5-0 winner over Maharashtra’s Simran Mendon. One of the biggest upsets of the day, however, was the exit of Chandigarh’s promising Nandini in 81kg. Nandini, who was a part of the 2019 Women’s World Boxing Championships squad, was knocked out 1-4 by Uttar Pradesh’s Shaily Singh.

How Spurs success can elevate England optimism

first_img MansionBet adds Bristol City to sponsorship portfolio August 20, 2020 StumbleUpon Submit David Lampitt, Sportradar: F1 presents betting’s most sizeable opportunity August 14, 2020 To the elation of football fans all over the globe, the Champions League returned this week and with it came strong away performances from Premier League clubs. A four goal drubbing at St Jakob-Park meant that tournament favourites, Manchester City set the record for the biggest away win in the knockout stages by an English side in the history of the competition. Only for the record to subsequently be broken by Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool the following night, who defeated Porto by five goals with the help of a Sadio Mane hat-trick, to all but book a place in the last eight. Both resounding wins enhanced the faith of punters that one of two well backed sides could win the tournament, prior to Tuesday night City attracted 24% of all bets in the Champions League winning market. Pep’s side were the most backed side, followed by Barcelona, who were responsible for 18% of all bets placed.Despite a disastrous opening ten minutes in Turin, Tottenham and Harry Kane valiantly fought back to earn a draw against Italian champions Juventus in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie. If Pochettino’s side can can defy the odds and achieve European success this season, then it Oddschecker revealed that it would “almost certainly” lead to the odds being slashed on England winning the World Cup this Summer. Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek commented: “Tottenham fans are often reminded that, despite possessing a promising squad and manager, they are yet to win anything with them.“Given that a huge proportion of their squad will be representing England at the World Cup, a European success would surely see the Three Lions’ price tumble for Russia’s World Cup.”Tottenham aren’t the only side from North London that are looking achieve success in Europe this season, Arsenal head to Sweden this evening to take on Ostersunds FK in the Europa League. Arsenal are attracting 13% of bets to win the tournament however, perhaps surprisingly, the most backed team for the Europa League by Oddschecker punters are Villarreal, despite being available at 25/1 long shots.The Spanish outfit have accounted for 34% of all bets on the winner of the Europa League despite being well down the pecking order.

The 787-9 dream machine

first_imgAir New Zealand has unveiled the latest chapter in its extraordinary journey of innovation and inspiration that has propelled it to win AirlineRatings.com 2014 Airline of the Year.On Wednesday July 8th (US time) at Everett Washington the airline and Boeing showed off the interior of the first Boeing 787-9 for which the airline is the launch customer. Once again Air New Zealand has shown that its quest for innovation shows no sign of flagging with an interior that is filled with clever ideas to make the travel experience better not just for the passengers at the pointy end but right through the cabin.The 787 comes with a catalogue of standard seating options that Boeing will permit airlines to install on their aircraft. Air New Zealand rejected all the standard seats and insisted on specially designed units. For instance Kerry Reeves, the airline’s Program Director for Aircraft Programs, explains that the economy seat has been set at a one-inch recline, so that passengers will not feel the need to immediately recline their seat fully (see video below). Passengers have the option to recline fully for sleep of course but Mr Reeves says studies have showed that a small recline will satisfy the majority of passengers, aside from night time.Air New Zealand also added more sculptured padding to the seats and modified the head rest to increase the travel up and downwards.Another “neat” feature is the airline has done away with the hand held control which is often difficult to get to when fitted into the arm rest and can be accidently activated. Now passengers have all their controls on the seat back video screen: light, flight attendant call button, sound level and brightness are all there. Also you can text the Flight Attendant for food or drinks and get an answer.The IFE system has been designed in New Zealand in partnership with Panasonic and has an app based touch screen system which is intuitive, easy to navigate and features a new customer interface. The new system will be also available progressively on the 777-200ER fleet as these aircraft are refurbished and will also be available across the 777-300ER fleet by the end of the year. It features more than 2,000 hours of content from more than 2,000 movie, television and audio titles including High Definition new releases, new and classic Disney and Hollywood titles and a dedicated category for HBO content.Air New Zealand CFO Rob McDonald told AirlineRatings.com that the airline is “very proud to be the launch customer for the 787-9. We believe it will be a game-changer for Air New Zealand, with increased levels of fuel efficiency and passenger comfort. We look forward to inviting our customers on board to experience the aircraft and all of its benefits for themselves.”Air New Zealand’s Rolls-Royce powered 787-9 is part of the airline’s fleet modernization effort. This 787-9, painted in a unique black livery, is the first of 10 Dreamliners to join Air New Zealand’s fleet and the airline has options on eight more. First scheduled route is Auckland to Perth, Australia in October 2014 and to both Tokyo and Shanghai in November 2014.Boeing Commercial Airplane’s Senior VP of Global Sales and Marketing John Wojick said “Air New Zealand was a perfect partner for us in developing the 787-9, given its innovative spirit, unique mission requirements and geography. The 787-9, combined with Air New Zealand’s exceptional onboard service, will set them apart from the competition by providing an unrivaled flying experience.”The 787-9 complements and extends the 787 family. With the fuselage stretched by 20 feet (6 meters) over the 787-8, the 787-9 will fly up to 40 more passengers an additional 450 nautical miles (830 km) with the same environmental performance of 20 percent less fuel use and thus emission than the planes it will replace. Air New Zealand Chief Flight Operations and Safety Officer Captain David Morgan, told AirlineRatings.com that the 787-9 is “a dream to fly.”When boarding the Air New Zealand 787-9 there is a great sense of space, a combination of the wide sculptured ceilings and very large windows. The cabin is very light and airy and has a warm inviting ambiance.The cabin has 18 Business Premier lie flat beds, 21 Premium Economy seats and 263 Economy seats. In economy 16 rows of three can be converted into the SkyCouch.Read: How the 787 beats jetlag here.Read: Air NZ accepts first 787AirlineRatings.com Editor Geoffrey Thomas and Editorial Director Christine Thomas were guests of Boeing and Air New Zealand.last_img read more

New Year’s food traditions

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Cabbage rolls, sauerkraut balls or even herring has been tied to many families’ New Year’s mealtime traditions. The North loves their roast pork and sauerkraut, the South their ham, peas and collards while the Northwest has been known to eat salmon. All steeped in tradition to bring good luck and fortune. Paul and I head down to the neighbors to enjoy a North-South meal. We love sharing this blend of traditions and reliving our days of living in the south with our Southern neighbors.The main attraction is ham and pork roast. Ham is a must for our Georgian neighbors, while we Ohioans gravitate toward roast pork. The carnivores we are, we all usually pile both selections on our plates. The folklore story that was told to me and I retold to my kids was that we eat pork because pigs root forward giving us a forward momentum in the New Year. Pigs have also been associated with plumpness and plentiful eating. Plenty to eat never seems to be a problem in this family but I don’t want chance the bad luck of “scratching out” my living in the New Year like poultry scratches backward. OSU Extension tells the tale that pork and sauerkraut on New Year’s Day goes back to German and Eastern European roots and will bring good luck and prosperity to those who eat it. Southern Living (the South’s food bible) states: “the more pork you eat, the more luck you’ll have” for the year. Just another reason to eat up! Ohio ranks eighth in pork production in the nation. OSU reports that the pork industry has improved this year with less PEDv and should be good news for all of us as we pile on the pork to get as much good luck as we can get.Cabbage is another staple. Southerners serve their cabbage in coleslaw where us northerners consume ours in sauerkraut. Believe it or not, cabbage is big business in Ohio. Ohio ranks twelfth in the nation and produces $7.1 million worth of cabbage products. That’s a lot of cabbage whether it’s sauerkraut or coleslaw. Don’t like sauerkraut but want its lucky benefits — try adding an apple or applesauce and a tablespoon of brown sugar just to take the sour edge off.In our North-South New Years feast after the pork and cabbage variations, it’s time to head to the side dishes. This is where the menu starts to differ. Southerners love to add collard greens and black-eyed peas which represent greenbacks and coins ensuring wealth and luck for everyone. Southern Living says that this tradition dates back to Civil War times when Union troops (us dreaded northerners) ravaged the southern farms leaving only black-eyed peas and greens for the animals to eat. These humble foods allowed the south to survive and have hope for the future. Although these aren’t our favorites, we make sure we eat at least a spoon of each because who wants to avoid wealth and luck of any kind.Cornbread is always served and symbolizes gold. True southerners do not put any sugar in their cornbread but we need juuuust a pinch of sugar. A fellow Ohioan neighbor always brings mashed potatoes to the table. I’m not sure why, other than we love potatoes and it seems it has always been included in a pork and sauerkraut meal.The 2016 New Years meal may have to be tweaked with more of a tailgate flare for the Buckeye game. Whether you will stick with tradition or vary with BBQ pork sandwiches and coleslaw for the game, make sure you fill your plate with plenty of Ohio’s agriculture filling your 2017 with lots of luck and prosperity.Eat well & healthy!Shelly Easy Black Eye Peas myrecipes.com 16 oz. pkg. frozen black eyed peas.3 cups water (may need less)1-2 large beef bouillon cubes1 medium onion, chopped1/2 (16-ounce) package kielbasa, sliced, browned, and drained (optional)Bring first 4 ingredients and, if desired, sausage to a boil in a saucepan.
