Thousands of California baby boomers are expected to flock to the The Golden Future 50+ Senior Expo this weekend to mingle with a crowd that knows exactly what they want. From free parking and admission to comedy shows and complimentary health screenings, the expo is a one stop shop for seniors to learn, laugh and enhance their lives.“We’ve found that when people get older, they really do care to live a healthy life,” explained Golden Future Expo Event Director, Toyia Moore.With over 80 vendors that provide a product or service for the senior demographic, this expo provides the resources to help attendees to be all they can be in the simplicity of of one big space.“It’s only once a year. What really makes it special is the interaction the seniors have with the vendors who really do go out of their way to have a interactive experience,” said Moore.According to Sal De Los Angeles, Manager of Community Education at Alzheimer’s Greater Los Angeles, a large population of seniors are simply unaware of resources that would otherwise go unknown.“One of the realities is that there are limited amount of resources in the community where people can learn about these types of issues. This expo is here to bridge the gap.”Attitudes toward aging have surely changed in recent years with the advent of the internet, cell phones and social media becoming a staple in the lives of many in the senior demographic.Local organizations far and wide have noticed the demand for seniors wanting easier ways to get informed.While many may assume that the “new-lease-on-life” mentality reigns supreme when dealing with aging, it turns out most seniors are just adapting to the times and are eager to get out in the world.According to the Director of Live Well Senior Program at Glendale Adventist Denise Miller,“Seniors are aging differently than they have ever before. They are savvy and ready to get out and get going.”The expo provides an avenue for seniors to navigate the healthcare system and perhaps open new doors to aging gracefully and stress free with the help of organizations like Glendale Adventist, American Heart Association and Blue Cross and dozens of others who will be administering free health screenings of various types.Most importantly, the expo is a place for everyone to have fun. A comedy show, makeover stations, prizes and many other activities are in place to bring the smiles all day long for this once a year opportunity.The Golden Future 50+ Senior Expo will be at the Pasadena Conference Center Saturday (May 7th) starting at 10:00 a.m.For more information on the vendors and list of events, visit www.goldenfutureseniorexpo.com Business News Top of the News Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Subscribe Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

It’s important for every one of us to do our part. New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton has tested positive for the new coronavirus, becoming the first person from the National Football League known to have contracted the disease. New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton has become the first person from the NFL to announce he has tested positive for Covid-19 Payton said he is feeling tired but resting at home after going into self quarantine. “I was fortunate to be in the minority, without the serious side effects that some have. I’m lucky,” Payton said on Thursday. Payton said he began feeling unwell on Sunday and got tested the next day. It took three days for the results to come back positive. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said it comes as no shock that cases of the disease are turning up in their league. “Our primary concern is for Sean’s health and well-being,” Goodell said. “He did the right thing by seeking medical attention and we wish him a speedy recovery. “It shouldn’t come as a surprise as this pandemic continues that members of our NFL family will be directly impacted.” About 80 percent of those with the disease develop a fever and cough, but Payton said so far he has not shown any signs of those symptoms.

Tree Ordinance Issue Still Unresolved in Fair Haven

first_imgFAIR HAVEN — Anyone waiting for a borough council decision on a long-debated tree preservation ordinance will have to wait a little while longer.Although the matter was on the agenda at their regular meeting last Monday, only four of the six-member council members were present and with Mayor Michael Halfacre absent as well, the consensus was to hold off until the entire governing body was available to participate in the discussion.One of the two ordinances being proposed would repeal the existing ordinance, explained Borough Attorney Salvatore Alfieri Monday night. The other ordinance, scheduled to be discussed at a future date, would establish a procedure by which someone who is seeking to remove trees from a property could appeal a denial from the planning or zoning boards. The intention of that ordinance would be to allow the council “to look at (the issue) not in a vacuum but look at it as a whole,” Alfieri said.The existing ordinance allows the boards to require a property owner to replace trees that are cut down. “Obviously, we have a public application that came before the planning board that brought this to a head,” said Borough Administrator Theresa Casagrande in explanation of what prompted the council’s debate on what should be done about tree regulations.The application that sparked the discussion goes back about two years, when the owner of a property at 46 Poplar Avenue sought approval for a three-lot subdivision to develop the site for two additional residential lots. That plan called for the removal of 12 trees from the property. The planning board denied the owner’s request and the owner then took the matter to the council seeking to have the decision overturned.Controversy erupted between those who saw the tree ordinance as a means of maintaining control over development in the borough and those who felt it infringed on property rights.Councilman Robert Marchese is firmly on the side of property owners, and he called for the ordinances to be tabled, in part to ensure the ordinance that allows the council to override board decisions didn’t go too far. “I want to make sure (the proposed ordinance) can’t do it retroactively,” he said. “My concern is the principle of the law at the time.”The language of the proposed ordinance would be reviewed and then brought back for discussion at a later meeting, Alfieri said.last_img read more

Proteas disappoint in Champs Trophy

first_imgKirsten may have built a base with his approach, but it’s hard to think that any team minus four world class stars would be able to perform to the standards it would have attained with those players in the mix. He also admitted that the Proteas had been far from their best in the Champions Trophy, saying: “I think if we have to be realistic, in the tournament we ended up with one win. We have been up and down in our one-day cricket for a while. We haven’t been consistent in our one-day cricket. Missing starsQuestioned about the effect of missing Steyn, Morkel, Jacques Kallis and Graeme Smith, Proteas’ coach Kirsten answered: “We’re used to not having our top players playing for us all the time. In fact, what we tried to do is broaden the base of our team, so we’ve had some good players come through into the team. We like to think that we can perform with anyone out there.” Batting strugglesOn a pitch that did a bit for the bowlers at the start of the game, South Africa lost their first wicket in the first over of their innings and their second in the second over. They struggled to recover and by the 23rd over, the Proteas were all but out of the contest at 80 for 8. South Africa exited the ICC Champions Trophy in disappointing fashion at The Oval on Wednesday when, after being put in to bat, a top-order collapse undermined their challenge, allowing England to cruise to victory by seven wickets with more than 11 overs to spare. Minus Dale Steyn, out of the match due to injury once more, it was always going to be a very tough ask for the South African attack to bowl England out. To win, that would be the requirement given South Africa’s low total, but unlike in test cricket, the attack did not include Steyn, Morne Morkel and Vernon Philander with time to work their opponents over. Inevitably, the c-word, “choke”, was raised about the Proteas’ poor performance. “It’s definitely a dark mist that hangs over South African cricket,” coach Gary Kirsten admitted at a post-match press conference. ConsistencyAnd that, maybe, is the reason why South Africa is struggling in the 50 over a side game. For a long time, the Proteas were one of the most consistent teams in one-day international cricket, from about the mid-1990s to the late 2000s, and the top players played, with not much chopping and changing. Consistent selection of the best players led to consistently good results. David Miller, with an unbeaten 56 off 51 balls, and Rory Kleinveldt, with 43 off 61 deliveries, then gave the innings a huge lift with a partnership of 95. However, 175, scored in only 38.4 overs, was far too little to set England a decent challenge. Praise for KirstenCaptain AB de Villiers praised Kirsten, who will now step down as coach of the Proteas. “He will be dearly missed. He’s a hell of a human being,” De Villiers said. “He’s just irreplaceable. He’ll be missed.”center_img “At some point we have to try and cross the line. We need some real charisma and some real guts and glory to get over the line. It might not be pretty, but at some point we are going to have to do it to get rid of this mist.” “That’s maybe because we’ve explored quite a lot of combinations over the last two years. We’ve rested our test players quite a bit to try and broaden the base of our one-day team.” 20 June 2013 Six catchesEngland wicketkeeper Jos Buttler enjoyed the conditions, snaring six catches, while James Tredwell knocked over 3 for 19 in seven overs, James Anderson 2 for 14 in eight, and Stuart Broad 3 for 50. To rub salt into the Proteas’ wounds, former South African Jonathan Trott played the anchor role for the home team, finishing unbeaten on 82 off 84 deliveries, as England reached 179 for 3 in 37.3 overs. Joe Root lent strong support with 48 and shared a stand of 105 with Trott. Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

It hasn’t worked in ODI cricket, but the freshness of those players, having not played that much one-day cricket, could be a significant part of the reason why South Africa’s test team has swept all before it. “A great innings by David Miller and Rory Kleinveldt at the end, but to have quality batsmen like that not being able to make a contribution was disappointing,” was Kirsten’s assessment of his charges’ batting effort. last_img read more

DeMarcus Cousins to get his first playoff chance at last

first_imgIn this Feb. 2, 2019, file photo, Golden State Warriors’ Andre Iguodala, right, tries to move DeMarcus Cousins, center, away from Los Angeles Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma, left, during an NBA basketball game in Oakland, Calif. Cousins cannot wait for his playoff chance at last. He has anticipated this moment so many times and it never happened. That is why he approached the Warriors last summer and asked for a chance, even though he was working back from season-ending surgery for a torn left Achilles tendon. Cousins joined the two-time defending champions for $5.3 million and this very opportunity. (AP Photo/Ben Margot, File)OAKLAND, California— DeMarcus Cousins shoves off assistant coach Jarron Collins and goes hard for the basket. He swishes a 3-pointer from up top, then hits a jumper inside the arc on the right wing. Cousins drives to the hoop and makes a shot from close range, then a turnaround jumper goes in before he moves to the left side to begin the sequence again.Long before the rest of the Golden State regulars have taken the court for pregame warmups, there is Cousins, earbuds in, meticulously focused on his preparation. In the locker room, he is one of the first to pull on his game jersey.ADVERTISEMENT Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess Philippine Arena Interchange inaugurated “He’s a fantastic human being, a great teammate. You see his frustration and his passion on the court so people automatically sort of attach labels to him. What I see is passion and emotion because he wants to win.”Teammate Shaun Livingston can only imagine what Cousins’ first playoffs will mean after a nine-year wait, and after all the hours of rehab. Livingston has lived through the grueling recovery from a major injury like Cousins just endured.“We’re all going to be excited for him, and he’s going to be excited,” Livingston said. “I expect him to have a great playoffs because he shows up big in big games.”Livingston’s left leg could have been amputated 12 years ago, and the knee injury he suffered while with the Clippers in 2007 was so serious nobody knew if he’d walk again let alone play basketball. Going for a layup, Livingston’s leg buckled backward, parallel to the court, when he fell in a freak accident.So, he can certainly relate to Cousins’ comeback challenges. Livingston offered an encouraging word whenever Cousins seemed to need that boost or encouragement.“It’s pretty gratifying to see that. … It feels good to see somebody that, you go through the struggle and then you’re able to come back and have success at this level,” Livingston said. “Put in a lot of work, more importantly what is fulfilling to see is to see the hard work pay off, because I remember the hard work he’s put in, getting to the gym early, getting his routine in. He’s put in a lot of work into his body so he could come out and play and perform on the court.”Cousins has taken his offensive game to another level, finding a rhythm in Golden State’s offense and finding the open teammate with solid ball movement. Before his return, Cousins insisted he understood how things might be in a starting lineup of All-Stars: “It’s obvious I won’t be taking as many shots as I have in the past,” he said.He is dangerous from anywhere, shooting the 3, moving well and drawing defenders to him. One of the NBA’s most dominant big men when healthy, he is taking charges on the defensive end and altering shots.“I never doubt DeMarcus. He’s another guy that’s got great pride, great competitor,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. “He’s always just wanted to be a part of a winning team and a winning organization. Now he has that here. He’s a guy that he often gets overlooked because of the amount of talent and depth this team.“You worry about this team at the 3-point line, well DeMarcus is a guy that in the playoffs you can go to and pound the ball inside into the post, he’s going to score, get fouled, or create a double-team and find an open teammate. What a great luxury to have.” Panelo: Duterte ‘angry’ with SEA Games hosting hassles LATEST STORIES PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games PLAY LIST 02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Cousins patiently worked back from a nearly yearlong absence after getting hurt in January 2018 with New Orleans, calling it one of the hardest things he has gone through emotionally and physically in his career. He made his Warriors debut Jan. 18 on the road against the Clippers, showing quickly he would make a big impact on both ends of the floor.The four-time All-Star center’s shooting stroke returned in a hurry. For him, finally getting back was largely conditioning and gaining strength in the leg to handle the rigors, pace and low-post pounding of an NBA game again.“What does he call it, the Resurgence?” Stephen Curry said. “… We like his fire. In terms of the playoffs, it’s going to be amazing, it’s his first run, it’s going to be good.”The 28-year-old Cousins steadily found a groove and more minutes in coach Steve Kerr’s rotations. He no longer glares at the coach for taking him out of games.“He has been so much fun to coach,” Kerr said. “And I wouldn’t have said that before he came back when he was rehabbing, he was not that much fun to coach. He would agree with that, he was so frustrated from the injury and from not being able to play and the length of his rehab. Since he returned and since he’s grown comfortable with the injury, with the comeback and since his confidence has grown, he’s been amazing to coach.ADVERTISEMENT DA eyes importing ‘galunggong’ anew Cousins can’t wait for his first playoff chance.“It’s been a long time coming for him,” Collins said. “I definitely think he’s excited and he’s ready for the moment to play on the biggest stage.

10 months agoGervinho: Arsenal move was dream come true

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Gervinho: Arsenal move was dream come trueby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveGervinho says he realised a lifelong dream when he joined Arsenal.The 31-year-old, now at Serie A club Parma, spent two seasons at Arsenal after joining from Lille in 2011. Although he didn’t collect any silverware at the Emirates, the Ivorian was proud of his time with his boyhood club.”Many young players tell you that they want to play for Manchester United or Arsenal. My dream was to play for Arsenal and I realised it,” the attacker told Goal. “When I arrived, I thought: ‘Wow, I’m here!’ “Each of my clubs made an impression on me, but Arsenal was special. When Arsene Wenger called me to tell me that he would like me to come to his club, I don’t think you imagine the satisfaction I felt just after hanging up the phone.”Arsenal is an historic club. At the time, it was a club that made a lot of young people dream, with a style of its own and a coach like Wenger who had all of England at his feet. There was not one player who did not like watching Arsenal, with Thierry Henry, Patrick Vieira and others.” last_img read more

DLF transfers Noida mall to its subsidiary for 2,950 crore

first_imgNew Delhi: Realty major DLF said it has transferred shopping mall in Noida, Uttar Pradesh, to its subsidiary firm for Rs 2,950 crore, as part of efforts to settle dues of its joint venture firm with GIC. DLF has to pay Rs 8,700 crore to the DLF Cyber City Developers Ltd (DCCDL), which is a joint venture firm of DLF and Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund GIC. It wants to settle these dues by September this year through transfer of rental assets and land parcels. In a regulatory filing on Thursday, DLF informed that the company has transferred its property, Mall of India, Noida, to one of its subsidiaries Paliwal Real Estate Ltd, in the ordinary course of business at an arm’s length consideration of Rs 2,950 crore, arrived on the basis of the valuation report of an independent valuer. “This is in line with the company’s stated objective of streamlining and consolidating the operations and holding structure of its rental assets,” DLF added. Mall of India is located in Sector 18, Noida, with a leasable area of 2 million sq ft. It was developed at a cost of around Rs 2,000 crore. According to sources, the transfer of Mall of India to a subsidiary firm has paved the way for selling this retail asset to DCCDL to clear the dues. DLF has 66.66 per cent stake in the joint venture firm, while GIC has 33.34 per cent shareholding. DCCDL currently holds around 30 million sq ft of rent-yielding commercial assets, largely in Gurugram (Haryana) with annual rental income of over Rs 2,500 crore. The JV was formed in December 2017 when DLF promoters sold entire 40 per cent stake in DCCDL for nearly Rs 12,000 crore. This deal included sale of 33.34 per cent stake in DCCDL to GIC for about Rs 9,000 crore and buyback of remaining shares worth about Rs 3,000 crore by DCCDL.last_img read more

PGA Tour rolls into town Players to watch at Memorial Tournament

Jim Furyk: For this veteran, the Memorial Tournament isn’t new. Furyk has fared well so far this year, winning two tournaments already on the PGA Tour, including the Verizon Heritage most recently. Furyk is No. 2 in the FedExCup standings. Although Furyk’s long game isn’t as strong as the other players on the short list of favorites, his solid short game and unflappable demeanor will be crucial if he hopes to contend. Ernie Els: Like Furyk, Els has also taken two titles in his 11 tournaments so far this tour, and he also sits atop the FedExCup rankings at this point. His victories include the World Golf Championship held in California and the Arnold Palmer Invitational. After struggling for the past three seasons, Els has finally hit his stride with five top-10 finishes already this season. With ball-striking at a premium on this difficult Nicklaus-designed course, the long-hitting South African should be in contention come the back nine on Sunday. The PGA Tour makes its stop here in Columbus this week, and the lineup is now official. The Memorial Golf Tournament, to be held at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, will surely bring in the crowds with its share of big-name golfers.Here are some obvious — and less obvious — players to watch.Tiger Woods: Although Tiger has gotten off to a shaky start since his return to the tour, he is still a favorite to win the Memorial after taking first place last year (his fourth win at Muirfield). Woods is coming off a neck injury, but after committing, it seems his concern isn’t too high. Coming in ranked No. 1 in the world doesn’t hurt either.Jason Day: The 22-year-old is coming off his first PGA Tour victory last week at the HP Byron Nelson Championship. The Australian is relatively new on the scene, so it should be interesting to see if lightning can strike twice for the up-and-coming young golfer.Phil Mickelson: Mickelson had a lack-luster performance at the Colonial, missing the cut after the second round with a three over 73. A tournament victory there would have put him in the No. 1 spot ahead of Woods. Mickelson should be fired up and ready to go, but an absence from the Memorial for the past few years gives him a bit of a disadvantage against the competition. read more
