Fair Oaks Ave., Pasadena.According to a report by the restaurant, Chick-fil-A officials have worked closely with Planning Department staff for over two years, presenting plans and conducting outreach at a community open house.So far, a conditional use permit, or CUP, has not been issued for the project.The company team has produced at least 20 working designs and updated city officials on refined plans for the project, which include a new drive-thru that would allow for a maximum 26 cars, a new landscaping plan, improved lighting, and 21 new trees to go with seven existing trees growing at the site.The restaurant, to be directly accessible from Lake Avenue, would have 40 interior seats and 30 to 35 patio seats.Local residents praised the idea due to the possible job opportunities it would provide, and its location. The site is across the street from McDonald’s and formerly housed a Carl’s Jr.At a District 5 Town Hall meeting in September 2019, local residents expressed concerns about competition in the neighborhood. There are already several chicken restaurants in the district, including a Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles, a Popeye’s Chicken, and a KFC.Residents also expressed concern over the possibility of greatly increased local traffic because of Chick-fil-A’s drive-thru service, as well as an increase in trash being strewn on neighborhood streets and private property as a result of a higher volume of customers. Those issues will be addressed in the CUP approval process.Last year, Chick-fil-A was listed as the third highest-selling chain behind only Starbucks and McDonald’s, according to the trade publication Nation’s Restaurant News.If allowed to open, this would be the second Chick-fil-A in Pasadena. The other one is on the southeast corner of Bonnie Avenue and Colorado Boulevard, near Pasadena City College.

Rodgers aiming to leave legacy

first_img Press Association Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers wants to leave a legacy at Anfield which will not just include silverware. “I’ve been satisfied in terms of the progress we have made but there is still a long way to go in terms of where I want to go with the whole project,” he said. “Hopefully it continues to grow. We have gone from a team who was looking to put a style of football in place – high energy, high tempo – to one who wants to have success running alongside that and success is getting into the Champions League. “This first 18 months has been (about) implementing and introducing a lot of ideas which are hopefully bearing fruit and the next 18 months is about developing and enhancing that. “Over the next 18 months we want to eventually be really challenging on the trophy front.” While the focus is on first-team success in the short term, Rodgers is not neglecting the future. Having helped the likes of Raheem Sterling and Jon Flanagan establish regular roles in the senior squad, the Northern Irishman has also given youngsters like Andre Wisdom, Jordon Ibe, Brad Smith, Joao Teixeira, Jerome Sinclair, Stephen Sama, Jordan Rossiter, Cameron Brannigan first-team experience in one form or another. “There’s no point in having a youth system and an academy system in place if you’re not going to look from within,” Rodgers told LFCTV GO. “For me and how I work, it’s part of my definition of success. When I eventually retire from football I want to be able to look back and see that not only have I won trophies but I’ve developed a football club that has brought through their own players and individuals and made them better. “Other managers may be different and might just be about purely winning trophies but for me success isn’t just picking up the trophy at the end of the season. “It’s also about the football club, giving the value to young players and seeing them develop.” center_img The Reds boss, more than halfway through his second season, has guided the club to second in the table and they remain on course to qualify for the Champions League for the first time since 2009. But while a return to Europe’s elite club competition remains the immediate priority, followed by winning trophies, Rodgers wants to look after the club in the long term. last_img read more

first_imgTRAINER SEEKS TO UPSET BEHOLDER ON SUNDAYPALMA, D’AMATO DOUBLE, TALAMO WINS THREETACO FIESTA AT SANTA ANITA NEXT SATURDAY SOUZA HOPES CAREER MARCHES FORWARD TOMORROW            Felipe Souza is a 30-year-old trainer only three years in the business stateside, flying far under the radar at this point in his aspiring career.But if he were to upset three-time Eclipse Award champion Beholder in Sunday’s Grade III Adoration Stakes, he might become an overnight sensation.Souza has not fallen that far out of touch with reality, however.            Training out of San Luis Rey Downs, Souza will saddle Backintheacademy in Sunday’s Adoration, for fillies and mares three and older at 1 1/16 miles. The six-year-old Florida-bred mare owned by the Freedom Stables of Eduardo Magalhaes Venosa of San Marcos is a rank outsider at 30-1, while Beholder, winner of 11 of 12 starts at Santa Anita, sits at 1-9.Souza knows he’s shooting for the moon and is not delusional about his chances. He says second or third would be great.“This could be her last year racing,” Souza said of the daughter of Put It Back, winner of just two starts from 32 races. “If she earns some black type by finishing in the money, we would be thrilled. She finished third last out at Los Alamitos but lost a shoe in the race.“She’s training well, it’s a small field, so we’ll give it a try.”Souza, a native of Brazil, got his training license nine years ago. Backintheacademy is one of only three horses he has in training at San Luis Rey.“We know she’s a longshot, but we hope she can sit back and try to pass horses late,” Souza said. “We hope she can earn some black type.”The Adoration, race five of nine: Moyo Honey, Drayden Van Dyke, 12-1; All Star Bub, Rafael Bejarano, 12-1; She’s Reddy, Santiago Gonzalez, 30-1; Backintheacademy, Brayan Pena, 30-1; Sheer Pleasure, Martin Garcia, 8-1; and Beholder, Gary Stevens, 1-9. FINISH LINES: Track Superintendent Dennis Moore reported just over an inch of rain hit Santa Anita from Friday into Saturday morning, but he expected the main track to be listed as “fast” barring further rain. The track was sealed prior to Friday’s races and was closed for training Saturday morning . . . David Hofmans had to scrap Saturday’s scheduled workout of Melatonin and will breeze the Santa Anita Handicap winner when track conditions are suitable. Trainer John Sadler also had to reschedule the work for champion Older Female of 2015 Stellar Wind, who also was listed to breeze this morning. Hofmans, meanwhile, was accepting congratulations all around for winning Friday’s Grade III American Stakes with Home Run Kitten under Joe Talamo, who won three races on the day . . . The Two P’s proved profitable Friday, as trainer Hector Palma and apprentice jockey Brayan Pena teamed to win two races, the second with favored Magical Touch (4.60) and the eighth with longshot Sanitation ($21.20), who rallied from last after a tardy start to score by a head in a furious finish. “He’s a good rider and he listens to instructions,” Palma said of Pena, who is represented by agent Bill Sadoo. “Sanitation has a tendency to shy from the other horses at the break. I told Brayan yesterday that if he did it again, keep him in the center of the track, make a strong run the last part, and maybe we’ll get a piece. We got more than a piece. We just got lucky.” . . . Trainer Mark Glatt also registered a double, with last-to-first winner Big Tire ($22.80) piloted by Santiago Gonzalez in the fifth and front-running favorite Wildfire Kid (5.40) under apprentice Chad Lindsay in seventh. Glatt tied Doug O’Neill for the training title at the recent Los Alamitos meet, where he has some of his 75 horses in training, and others at Santa Anita . . . Phil D’Amato, fresh from capturing his first-ever training title at Santa Anita’s Winter Meet, also got off to a flying start, winning with odds-on favorites Mysterious Miracle in the fourth and Larry Birdstone in the ninth . . . Jockey Abel Lezcano, who rode Nancy From Nairobi to victory in the Royal Heroine Stakes on opening day, has been suspended three days (May 12, 13 and 14) for causing interference in the race. No disqualification resulted . . . Martin Garcia rides Robert B. Lewis third-place finisher I Will Score for Jerry Hollendorfer in next Saturday’s Grade III Lazaro Barrera Stakes for three-year-olds at seven furlongs.last_img read more

Dinosaurs of the Month

first_imgThe tools of paleontologists continue to turn up interesting things.  Here are some of the latest dinosaur discoveries reported this month:Mighty mouth:  An African theropod with massive, shark-like teeth was found in the African Sahara, reported National Geographic News and PhysOrg.  It was named Eocarcharia dinops, or “fierce-eyed dawn shark.”  Another similar individual, presumed to be a scavenger, was named Kryptops palaios, “old hidden face” had a bony horn that covered much of its face.  National Geographic posted a gallery of artist’s reconstructions.Mighty duck:  In Mexico, giant duck-billed hadrosaur remains were found, reported National Geographic and Science Daily.  These specimens were said to be 35 feet in length.  Till now, dinosaur bones in Mexico have been rare.  Terry Gates (Utah Museum of Natural History) said, “The crested duck-billed dinosaurs are an extraordinary example of vertebrate evolution.”Sparrowsaur:  In China, the smallest pterosaurs ever found have come to light (see National Geographic and Live Science).  These toothless flying reptiles were only about the size of a sparrow – 10 inches or so (see artist reconstruction).  Like birds, they had curved digits that probably helped them grasp the branches of trees.  Found in the rich fossil beds of China’s Liaoning province, the species was named Nemicolopterus crypticus. by the discoverers who published their findings in PNAS.1    Alexander Kellner (Museu Nacional/Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro) pieced pterosaurs into a vision of evolutionary progress: “The general idea was at some point we had these very primitive pterosaurs – very low down on the evolutionary tree – that were living on insects.  At some point pterosaurs learned to feed on fish.”  He said the find “opens a new chapter on the evolutionary history of this group of volant [flying] reptiles.”For a twist on who eats whom, Science Daily reported fossils of a giant frog from Madagascar that may have fed on baby dinosaurs.  They named it Beelzebufo – “the frog from hell.”  The find was published in PNAS,2 where the authors said that it “suggests that the initial radiation of hyloid anurans began earlier than proposed by some recent estimates.”  It was also found on a different continent – Africa – far from South America where such frogs were thought to have evolved.  See also the BBC News and Science Daily for an artist’s rendering of the mean ol’ frog.  The latter article claims that the monster leaped across continents and ate dinosaurs.  Co-discoverer David Krause is quoted, “What’s a ‘South American’ frog doing half-way around the world, in Madagascar?”  There must have been a land bridge – through Calaveras County.1.  Wang, Kellner, Zhou, Campos, “Discovery of a rare arboreal forest-dwelling flying reptile (Pterosauria, Pterodactyloidea) from China,” Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA, published online on February 11, 2008, 10.1073/pnas.0707728105.2.  Evans, Jones, Krause, “A giant frog with South American affinities from the Late Cretaceous of Madagascar,” Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA, Published online on February 19, 2008, 10.1073/pnas.0707599105.Some paleontologists estimate we have only found 27% of the dinosaurs that actually lived (11/22/2004).  This means that new, exotic discoveries can be expected for many years to come.  Exciting as each new unusual form is, one cannot assume that the diversity in the dinosauria exceeds that in other groups, such as insects.  Dinosaurs stand out in our minds because of their size and the fact they are all extinct.  In many groups of plants and animals, the fossil record is richer than the living inventory.    One should remember also that classification is a very human enterprise.  Paleontologists win honors for naming a species.  This can lead to species bloat – too much splitting of similar specimens into separate species.  With fossils, one cannot know the natural amount of variation that was present due to diet, climate, development, genetic isolation or other factors.  One cannot know which ones were capable of interbreeding.  One also cannot compare the DNA of different dinosaurs (yet).  The count of dinosaur species and genera is a function of the classification scheme used.  Jones may want to name his find Magnificentosaurus jonesii but that doesn’t make it different from Majesticosaurus smithii.  Another factor leading to the impression that new dinosaurs are popping up all over is selective reporting.  “More of the same” doesn’t make news as much as something new and different.    These finds, nevertheless, should inspire the young to realize there is still much to discover.  Join the treasure hunt.  Replace the old guard paleontologists who can’t kick the smoking habit (i.e., the addicts who exude smokescreens of fogma about millions of years, primitive forms, and new chapters in evolution).  Let the bones do the talking.  They know how to remain silent.  Evolutionists have not yet learned that anything they say can and will be used against them in the court of public opinion (09/30/2007 commentary).(Visited

Brand South Africa welcomes results of 2013 CountryRep Study

first_imgJohannesburg, 27 September 2013 – Brand South Africa CEO Miller Matola has welcomed the results of the Reputation Management Institute’s 2013 CountryRep Study which indicates that South Africa’s reputation is improving amongst citizens of the G-8 countries.  The results were released on Thursday 26 September at WITS Business School in Johannesburg.The study found that South Africa now ranks 28 of 50 countries in terms of reputation. South Africa has moved from 44th place in 2009.Also known as the Global Perceptions on South Africa’s Reputation survey, the 2013 report has interestingly found that South Africans view themselves less favourably than their G-8 counterparts.Reflecting upon these positive results Brand South Africa CEO Miller Matola said, “South Africans have a role to play in changing the South African narrative into a positive one. The improved results are therefore due to each South African citizen working together to change our country’s reputation. We have many positive developments in our country and these should inspire and encourage us that South Africa is on the right track to achieve its developmental objectives. Amongst others, the National Development Plan, or Vision 2030, clearly and concisely maps out where we are going as a country.”“We must begin to change the South African narrative from the inside out. This can be easily achieved through the National Development Plan. Vision 2030 aims to put South Africa on a firm path to sustainable growth and development which will also serve to safeguard our democracy and freedom. This is very important as we prepare to commemorate two decades of freedom and democracy in our country.”“We must also move beyond the discourse of what government can do to how each of us can contribute and play our part in our country’s development. This is the only way we can decisively shift perceptions on our reputation,” concluded Mr Matola.About Brand South AfricaBrand South Africa is the official marketing agency of South Africa, with a mandate to build the country’s brand reputation, in order to improve its global competitiveness abroad. Its aim is also to build pride and patriotism among South Africans, in order to contribute to social cohesion and nation brand ambassadorship.Further resources from Brand South AfricaMedia are invited to visit for further resources which can be reproduced without any copyright infringement.

Rural South Africa to get free wi-fi

first_img26 May 2015Rural Eastern Cape is about to get high speed internet service though a dedicated wi-fi connection.Project Isizwe is well known for rolling out the City of Tshwane’s massive wi-fi programme which is part of the city’s vision for universal internet access. But taking wi-fi to the Ingwe Technical Vocational Education and Training College on their Mount Frere and Lusikisiki campuses in a pilot project was not without its critics.“Everyone says ‘It’s easy in Tshwane, but you can’t do it in a rural area’, but here we are,” said Alan Knott-Craig junior, the brains behind Project Isizwe.The pilot would focus on the Department of Higher Education and Training being able to deliver internet access on campus and surrounding areas, he explained.“The idea is for the Department of Higher Education to deploy free wi-fi on campus and for surrounding communities (where students live) throughout the country.”The wi-fi deployment is scheduled for 17 June and Knott-Craig said that the rural area provided an ideal test-bed for how the poor would be able to participate on the internet.“Eastern Cape is ideal because it is as rural as you get and [is] densely populated. Until we solve connectivity problems there, South Africa will always have a problem.”It’s a sentiment similar to that expressed by Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg in his drive to push, despite criticism the platform has received.“Giving people free access is the right thing to do. Facebook will keep connecting more people and more countries, and won’t stop until every person in the world can connect to the internet,” Zuckerberg said when he announced the availability of the platform in Malawi.In South Africa, Tshwane’s city-wide wi-fi programme continues to grow beyond expectations.The service is now available in 96 wards with 575 live sites. Project Isizwe has 161 577 users of the service, up from just 1 567 in 2013.In Western Cape, Stellenbosch – where the free wi-fi project was initiated – is still considering how to best offer citizens internet access.“We continue to try to engage the municipality but they are going through an internal process. as to how to take Stellenbosch Free Wi-Fi forward,” said Knott- Craig.Source: News24Wirelast_img read more

How to Use Facebook: 5 Tips For Better Social Networking

first_imgFacebook is a social networking site that is enormously popular, but it can be a frustrating user experience. The design of Facebook leaves a lot to be desired and there are almost too many choices for things to do on Facebook. Also some of the more popular Facebook activities are trivial instead of useful – throwing sheep is an oft-quoted example. Having said that, there’s no doubt that Facebook is a powerful social networking tool. So how can you best utilize it and find the good apps? In this post we aim to find out. We’ll be focusing specifically on social activities, rather than the many other potential uses of Facebook (work, brand management, etc).Tip 1: Update Your Status RegularlyThis is a simple thing to do to keep your Facebook profile active. Right at the top of the page there is a place where you can “write something.” Usually a comment about what you’re doing or thinking. Once a day, or even once every few days, is enough. But update it enough to keep your page interesting. If instead of Facebook you usually use a specialist photo site (like Flickr) or video site (like Vimeo), then you’ll need to search around for ways to export your files. I use Flickr and didn’t find a satisfactory way to export photos from Flickr to Facebook’s Photo albums. But via my Twitter network I managed to discovered a plug-in for iPhoto, which allows Mac users to bulk export from iPhoto to Facebook.Tip 5: Search Out the Best Facebook Apps Ever since Facebook became a development platform back in May 2007, thousands of apps have been built to add to your Facebook page. As noted in the introduction, these range from trivial (e.g. sheep throwing) to very useful. The best tip here is to find apps that complement your interests. Our advice is to search the directory for keywords of interest to you. The quality of apps varies greatly and often there are errors (at least I came across them several times when researching this article). When you find an app you like, you can add it to your profile. I added an Art app recently, for example. You can browse a user’s apps by clicking the oddly-named ‘Boxes’ tab on their profile page.Tell Us How You Use Facebook!We hope this post inspires you to spruce up your Facebook page a bit. For more tips, check out Facebook’s own Influencers page. Let us know in the comments what tips you have, or what you use Facebook for every day! There is a bit of a trick to setting this groups feature up. Facebook calls this feature “lists,” probably to differentiate them from its other Groups feature (which have been usurped by ‘Pages’ now). Confused? Get used to it, Facebook navigation is awful. To set lists up for your Facebook account, go to your Facebook homepage and click the “more” link on the left-hand sidebar. You will see a link entitled “Create new list” at the bottom – click on that to create a new group.Tip 3: Add Your Content From Other Sources (Carefully…)In this day and age, you are likely creating content in more than a few places on the Web. This ranges from the extreme cases (early adopters who have personal RSS feeds coming out their ears), to those who may just use YouTube and a couple of other niche social websites. Many early adopters use FriendFeed to aggregate their ‘lifestream’ of content from multiple sources. Facebook just bought FriendFeed, so expect to see it integrated into Facebook over time. As of now, if you have more than a few content sources and they aren’t necessarily the well-known ones like YouTube or, then you’ll need to use FriendFeed or an equivalent lifestreaming product to aggregate those feeds. But if you find FriendFeed just a bit too geeky (and many people do), then you can adequately enrich your Facebook profile with external content. One thing we’d caution, which this author took too long to notice: don’t pipe your FriendFeed content into Facebook if you aggregate a lot of content into FriendFeed! It quickly overpowers your Wall and will likely annoy the friends you have who also subscribe to your FriendFeed. richard macmanus A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro…center_img Tags:#Facebook#Features#How To#NYT#web To add external content to Facebook, on your Wall page click the ‘Options’ link on the top right. Then click ‘Settings.’You can then choose to “import stories” to your Facebook wall from a select number of sites: Flickr, Digg, YouTube and others.You can add content from other external sources to Facebook by clicking the ‘application settings page’ link further down the page.Tip 4: Brighten Up Your Profile With Photos and Videos This almost goes without saying, but adding multimedia makes your Facebook profile interesting and attractive. Tip 2. Use Groups (a.k.a. Lists in Facebook Terminology)Groups are a core feature of social networking on the Web. To effectively use Facebook, we recommend you set up some groups so that you can filter content. One person who does this very well is our own Marshall Kirkpatrick. Marshall says that he generally scans his Facebook homepage first, then clicks to his groups for family and old friends from school. He noted that “this way most of my time spent on Facebook isn’t re-reading the same things I’ve already read on Twitter.” Related Posts Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verificationlast_img read more

Residents of Bellefield in Manchester Get Water Shop

first_imgStory Highlights The Minister said more water shops would be built, as there is a need for them where there is no available water supply across the island.More than 20,000 gallons of purified water will now be available daily, the Minister noted, and urged the citizens to protect the facility.Mr. McKenzie thanked Dillon Dawkins, who leased the land on which the facility was constructed. “This is what community involvement is all about,” he said.Mr. Dawkins told JIS News that he donated the land to house the water shop, because of the love he has for the community and the people. The lease is initially for 10 years, with an option to renew.“There were times when I was asked by people to take water to them, and I used my vehicle to do it,” he said.A resident of Bellefield, Claudine Lloyd, told JIS she is happy for the water shop. “It is better, cleaner and in a good environment. So far, we are enjoying it and we will see how good it works,” she said. It was built at a cost of $9.5 million and was officially opened on Thursday, April 25 by Minister of Local Government and Community Development, Hon. Desmond McKenzie. Also present were Mayor of Mandeville, His Worship Councillor Donovan Mitchell; and Member of Parliament, Peter Bunting. “For the next year, the water will be provided free of cost. We will review it then to see how it works, but no resident should be turned away, because there is no fee associated with the water at this time. We will be ensuring that the tanks should never run dry,” Mr. McKenzie said. center_img Residents of Bellefield, Banana Ground, Blue Mountain, Bombay, Virginia, Top Bellefield, Davyton and Coffee Grove in Central Manchester now have a reliable source of potable water, as a water shop has been opened in the area.It was built at a cost of $9.5 million and was officially opened on Thursday, April 25 by Minister of Local Government and Community Development, Hon.
