Santa Monica preps for Black History Month

first_imgHomeFeaturedSanta Monica preps for Black History Month Jan. 26, 2021 at 6:00 amFeaturedNewsSanta Monica preps for Black History MonthBrennon Dixson5 months agoBHMblack history monthSanta Monica The City of Santa Monica is ready to celebrate Black History Month this February with a number of events that will be held in a COVID-conscious manner.In 2020, city and community leaders partnered to host the inaugural “Celebrating Black Excellence Community Mixer” on the Third Street Promenade, which provided residents and tourists an opportunity to talk with others while they enjoyed treats from various vendors and a traditional West African Dance and Drum performance.Because of COVID and the need to stay home, this year’s roster of events will be held virtually but the activities will still highlight the history, diversity and achievements of Santa Monica’s Black community, said Delana Gbenekama, Equity and Communications Coordinator for the City of Santa Monica, as she detailed the many upcoming opportunities to learn about Black history as well as the Black community’s contributions to Santa Monica.“Last year was the first opening ceremony and that will be held on Rosa Parks Day again this year. We also had the Black Excellence Awards last year for the first time to honor the people who have made an impact in the community so this year we’ll of course return with the second annual opening ceremony and Celebrating Black Excellence Awards, but we’ve also added a lot of other events and unique programming for this year as well,” Gbenekama said, “including Zumba and the Afro-Joy Dance Party with Tatiana Zamir; which I’m really excited for because it’s something that’s fun, but there’s also going to be a healing component.”And those are only some of next month’s events, Gbenekama added. “We have a book reading and conversation with Catherine Adel West on her book, “Saving Ruby King,” and we have a talk about Historic Belmar Park because everybody should know the significance of that project.”A full list detailing the City’s Black History Month celebrations is available on the website, but Gbenekama said the fun will kick off at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 4, during The Black Family: Representation, Identity and Diversity Opening Ceremony, which will feature special dance performances, segments highlighting the cooking traditions of Black families, and much, much more.“I truly think the opening ceremony will be an opportunity for people to learn firsthand about the Black family experience because they will hear directly from community members and some families during the opening ceremony,” Gbenekama said. “And I’m really excited about this event because the black community is not a monolith. We’re a diverse community, so we really wanted to display that during the Opening Ceremony and throughout the different events this year. And given we’re in a pandemic, I think these virtual events will be a nice reprieve for community members, which is something that I’ve always thought was important — but it is even more so now.”[email protected] :BHMblack history monthSanta Monicashare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentUS virus numbers drop, but race against new strains heats upTrump impeachment goes to Senate, testing his sway over GOPYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall5 hours agoNewsCouncil picks new City ManagerBrennon Dixson16 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter16 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor16 hours agoNewsBruised but unbowed, meme stock investors are back for moreAssociated Press16 hours agoNewsWedding boom is on in the US as vendors scramble to keep upAssociated Press16 hours agolast_img read more

Lewis cruises to first win of year

first_imgIRVING, Texas – There was no near-miss for Stacy Lewis this time. This was a runaway for the highest-ranked American after six runner-up finishes in her previous 16 tournaments. Lewis shot a 7-under 64 on Sunday in the North Texas LPGA Shootout, finishing at 16-under 268 and six strokes ahead of Meena Lee. It was the LPGA Tour’s largest margin of victory since Jiyai Shin won the 2012 Women’s British Open by nine. ”I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time. I kind of have these mini goals in the back of my mind,” Lewis said. ”One of them was kind of taking a tournament and running away with it. … So to be so close the last few weeks and then to come out and shoot 64, I mean I don’t even know what to say.” It was the ninth career LPGA Tour victory for Lewis, her first since August in the Women’s British Open, and will boost the Texan from third to second in the world ranking. Lewis made a putt from about 25 feet off the fringe at the 540-yard seventh for an eagle. She followed with consecutive birdies to make the turn at 14 under and up by three strokes. ”The eagle just really kind of got things going in the right direction, and then just I never let up,” said Lewis, who punctuated her round with birdies on Nos. 17 and 18. ”I never let the hammer down.” Lee, the South Korean who won the last her two LPGA Tour titles in 2006, shot 70 after going into the final round at Las Colinas Country Club tied with Lewis for the lead. Lee bogeyed the opening hole and needed a birdie at No. 18 to finish alone in second place. Michelle Wie, who closed within two before faltering late, had a 67 to finish third at 9 under. Na Yeon Choi (69) and Kim Kauffman (70) tied for fourth at 8 under. Kraft Nabisco winner Lexi Thompson (69), Cristie Kerr (71) and Suzann Pettersen (72) were among six players at 7 under. Lewis, from The Woodlands near Houston, has finished outside the top six only once in nine tournaments this year. She was third at the Kraft Nabisco and had another runner-up finish just last week in San Francisco. She had three runner-up finishes in her last eight tournaments in 2013 after her victory at St. Andrews. Lewis got a share of the lead in Texas after a frustrating 69 in the third round Saturday when she hit all 18 greens in regulation but missed several makeable birdie putts. ”Honestly, I didn’t change anything. I didn’t do anything different,” she said. ”They just didn’t go in (Saturday). … But once you see putts in, it’s kind of contagious.” Defending champion Inbee Park closed with a 72 to tie for 14th at finish at 5 under. That will be good enough when the new world ranking comes out to stay No. 1 for the 56th consecutive week since the South Korean replaced Lewis at the top. Lewis will supplant Lydia Ko in the second spot. Ko, who didn’t play in North Texas, moved to No. 2 after her win last week in San Francisco only days after her 17th birthday. Wie had her fourth consecutive top-10 finish, including her first win in nearly four wins at home in Hawaii after a runner-up finish in the season’s first major. Wie, playing five groups ahead of Lewis, was 6 under in a span of seven holes – Nos. 9-15. When she made a 4-foot birdie putt at No. 15, she was 11 under and only two strokes behind Lewis, who was finishing her only bogey of the day at the par-3 11th. Lewis’ tee shot at the 175-yard 11th half-buried in the sand just under the lip of the bunker. Lewis had sand in her face after hitting out, and couldn’t save par. But she got that lost stroke right back with a long birdie putt at the par-4 12th. While Wie was finishing with consecutive bogeys, Lewis had an incredible par-saver at the 390-yard 15th hole, where deciding against an iron she hit her drive into the water. After dropping from about 140 yards, she hit her approach to about 3 feet. Wie’s eagle at the 510-yard 10th hole was her third of the week there. But after missing the green at the 180-yard 17th for a bogey, she hooked her 8-iron approach at the closing par 5 into the trees and bogeyed. ”I thought I had it on 17, just nuked it over the green,” Wie said. ”I just hit a wall on the last hole, which is disappointing for me. At the same time, 4-under par on the last day, I’ll take it.”last_img read more

Study Explains How Electromagnetic Fields Amplify Pain in Amputees

first_imgAn Iraq War veteran, David Underwood for years has noticed that whenever he drove under power lines and around other electromagnetic fields, he would feel a buzz in what remained of his arm. The intensity of the pain became more significant when he was traveling by car through open spaces in Texas, so much so that he felt like his arm was blown off again.Until a recent study led by researchers at The University of Texas at Dallas was published online last month in PLOS ONE, there was no scientific evidence to back up the stories of people, such as Underwood, who reported aberrant sensations and neuropathic pain around cellphone towers and other technology that produce radio-frequency electromagnetic fields. “Our study provides evidence, for the first time, that subjects exposed to cellphone towers at low, regular levels can actually perceive pain,” said Dr. Mario Romero-Ortega, senior author of the study and an associate professor of bioengineering in the University’s Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science. “Our study also points to a specific nerve pathway that may contribute to our main finding.”Most of the research into the possible effects of cellphone towers on humans has been conducted on individuals with no diagnosed, pre-existing conditions. This is one of the first studies to look at the effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) in a nerve-injury model, said Romero-Ortega, who researches nerve regeneration and builds neural interfaces — technology that connects bionic or robotic devices to the peripheral nerve. There are nearly 2 million amputees in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and many suffer from chronic pain.After interacting with Underwood, Romero-Ortega decided to study the phenomena that Underwood described. The team hypothesized that the formation of neuromas – inflamed peripheral nerve bundles that often form due to injury – created an environment that may be sensitive to EMF-tissue interactions. To test this, the team randomly assigned 20 rats into two groups – one receiving a nerve injury that simulated amputation, and the other group receiving a sham treatment. Researchers then exposed the subjects to a RF electromagnetic antenna for 10 minutes, once per week for eight weeks. The antenna delivered a power density equal to that measured at 39 meters from a local cellphone tower – a power density that a person might encounter outside of occupational settings.Researchers found that by the fourth week, 88 percent of subjects in the nerve-injured group demonstrated a behavioral pain response, while only one subject in the sham group exhibited pain at a single time point, and that was during the first week. After growth of neuroma and resection – the typical treatment in humans with neuromas who are experiencing pain – the pain responses persisted.Romoro-Ortega hopes that this study will highlight the importance of developing clinical options to prevent neuromas, instead of the current partially effective surgery alternatives for neuroma resection to treat pain. Researchers also performed experiments at the cellular level to explain the behavioral response. That led researchers to explore the protein TRPV4, which is known to be a factor in heat sensitivity and the development of allodynia, which some subjects displayed. Romero-Ortega said since the research produced pain responses similar to those in anecdotal reports and a specific human case, the results “are very likely” generalizable to humans. She also said “There are commercially available products to block radio frequency electromagnetic energy. There are people who live in caves because they report to be hypersensitive to radiomagnetism, yet the rest of the world uses cellphones and does not have a problem. The polarization may allow people to disregard the complaints of the few as psychosomatic,” he said. “In our study, the subjects with nerve injury were not capable of complex psychosomatic behavior. Their pain was a direct response to man-made radiofrequency electromagnetic energy.”At one point in the study, members of the research group showed Underwood video of subjects in the experiment and their response to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields.“It was exactly the same type of movements I would have around cellphones on roam, power lines and other electromagnetic fields,” said Underwood, who has served on congressional medical committees and been exposed to some of the best doctors in the world. “It is pretty amazing that a few short conversations with this team led to validation of what I, and many others, experience.”Researchers said that the next step is to develop devices that block neuropathic pain from radiofrequency electromagnetic energy.Dr. Bryan Black, a research associate in the Department of Bioengineering in the Jonsson School; Dr. Rafael Granja-Vazquez, a postdoctoral fellow at UT Dallas; Dr. Benjamin Johnston of Brown University; and Dr. Erick Jones Sr., a professor of industrial, manufacturing and systems engineering at UT Arlington, also contributed to the work.Read the complete paper here.last_img read more

Tragedy Strikes West Florida Athletics

first_imgTragedy Strikes West Florida Athletics March 24, 2008PENSACOLA, Fla. – The University of West Florida Athletic Department is deeply saddened by the untimely loss of one of their family. Sophomore cross country and track student-athlete Ashley Collis, 19, passed away on Saturday as a result of a car accident. She was traveling to the Atlanta area to be with her family for Easter when the accident occurred. This is the second tragedy within the UWF Athletic family this semester, as the women’s golf team lost Danielle Smith in a traffic accident in mid January.Collis previously attended Truitt McConnell College her freshman year, and graduated from John McEachern High School in her hometown of Powder Springs, Georgia. Collis had helped the Lady Bears of Truitt McConnell to a National Junior College Athletic Association Region title, as she finished in 8th place in the regional championship race. She was expected to compete very well for the Argos in the future, despite having to battle through various injuries during the fall cross country season.Head coach Matt Dobson said the team is very saddened by the event. “We are a very close knit unit, and Ashley had some great friendships among teammates. She was a very easy-going, likeable person, and such a positive influence on the rest of the team. She was just a great kid from a small town, a truly genuine person, and we are going to miss her.”Collis was scheduled to run in her first UWF track meet this weekend at the FSU Relays. Despite battling injuries this past cross country season, Collis ran in two meets and accompanied the team for several other meets, as she was dedicated to help the team in any way. Collis ran in the Mt. Dew Invitational at Gainesville this past fall, and ran in the Argos Invitational meet in late September, where she turned in a 24:52 for the 5K event.The entire men’s and women’s cross country teams are planning on making the trip to Marietta, Georgia to pay tribute to Ashley this week. The Collis family will receive friends at the funeral home, Tuesday, March 25, 2008 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm and 6:00 – 8:00 pm. West Cobb Funeral Home in Marietta, Georgia is in charge of the arrangements. The funeral is scheduled for 2:00 pm on Wednesday, March 26 at Macland Baptist Church.

first_imgA rejuvenated and undefeated Arsenal side welcome Dede Ayew’s Marseille to the Emirates for a crunch tie, the result of which, will have a bearing on the future of both sides in the competition.The Gunners are taking on a French club for the first time at the Emirates Stadium, with their last encounter against a Ligue 1 side at home being a 2-1 defeat to Auxerre at Highbury.Coverage of Arsenal vs. Marseille begins at 7:15pm on Adom-TV and Joy Sports on Multi-TV .Ahead of the game Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has called on his team to forget Saturday’s momentous derby win over Chelsea and focus instead on qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League with a win over Marseille.The Gunners’ renaissance hit a new peak on Saturday when they stunned Chelsea with a 5-3 victory at Stamford Bridge. They have now won eight of their last nine games and are within three points of the Barclays Premier League top four after recovering from a dreadful start.Wenger’s men have saved their best form for Europe this year and they will all but secure qualification from Champions League Group F if they beat Marseille and Olympiacos fail to beat Borussia Dortmund in Germany. “We have now to forget about Chelsea, carry on, and prove that we can keep doing the job,” Wenger said.”We want just to qualify. Our job is to forget about the last game, take the positives out of it, and focus on the next one just as we had to do when we lost 8-2 to Manchester United.”Marseille are enjoying something of a renaissance after a tough start to the season and goalkeeper Steve Mandanda is eager to build on a run of three wins in domestic league and cup competition.“It’s been a run of three or four games that we’ve been much better in,” the OM skipper told reporters in quotes reported on his club’s website.“The results have been there as well so everything is a little easier at the moment and hopefully it lasts. When we win we’re happy and there is less attention paid to our mistakes.”The stopper is wary of Van Persie’s threat after his exploits at Stamford Bridge.“We know Arsenal’s qualities and he is very important to Arsenal’s team. But there are other players around him who are also dangerous.“He scores a lot of goals, we know it won’t be easy but similarly we know what to expect. We’ll be ready.” TEAM NEWSArsene Wenger may have doubts concerning the right-back spot for this fixture, with Johan Djourou and Carl Jenkinson fighting for a place in the starting line-up.Meanwhile, Bacary Sagna and Jack Wilshere are both out with ankle injuries and are not expected to play any part in this clash. Andrey Arshavin could come in place of Gervinho if the latter needs rest following the exertions at Stamford Bridge, where the Gunners defeated Chelsea in a sensational 5-3 victory.Didier Deschamps may put forth an attacking line-up to take revenge on Arsenal for the defeat they suffered at home, while hoping to boost their prospects of qualifying for the next stage of the Champions League.Mathieu Valbuena is likely to fall back a bit when Marseille are starved of possession, otherwise he should play a more attacking role with Loic Remy and Jordan Ayew proving to be the primary threat in the attacking third of the pitch. The latter returns after serving a tournament suspension, while Rod Fanni also comes back into the fold after being banned. Stephane Mbia is their only absentee after suffering a broken metatarsal in August.The Champions League is LIVE on Joy Sports and Adom TV every Tuesday all season long.last_img read more

Laszlo To Release a WebOS

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting While in San Franciscoearlier this month, I met up with Laszlo’sFounder and CTO, David Temkin, along with CMO Kent Libbey. Laszlo has an open source Ajaxapplication development platform called OpenLaszlo – which has been used for external appslike Pandora (online radio and music sharing) and (Barclays sharemarket app). OpenLaszlo wasreleased at the end of 2004 and claims to have over a quarter of a million downloads todate. Meanwhile Laszlo received an $8 million Series C round of funding in September andin October they made a deal with Sun Microsystems, to enable OpenLaszlo applications torun on the Java Platform, Micro Edition (Java ME).When I spoke to David, my ears pricked up when he mentioned that Laszlo is building aWebOS. While he wasn’t able to give me many details, he did say the WebOS will be aframework as well as a set of apps. Hmmm, the WebOS space is getting crowded! More on this as it develops.Pandora, one of my fave online radios, uses OpenLaszloOpenLaszlo is often talked about as an open source competitor to Adobe’s Flex, because both are rich clientapplication development platforms. And from the user’s perspective, a website built withLaszlo is almost identical to a website built with Flash (indeed OpenLaszlo has a Flashrun-time option). From a company and developer perspective, the competition is prettyfierce between the two – illustrated by this post by Raju Bitter, an open source evangelist who uses Laszlo.I asked David what the difference is between OpenLaszlo and Flex – he told me thatOpenLaszlo is more consumer focused than Flex, which he says is mainly forenterprise.In our briefing, David showed me some nifty apps. Laszlo Mail is a commercialrich client email app that is used by ISPs and other “communication service providers”. Building on this isLaszlo’s suite of personal productivity apps, currently in development, which they call Digital Life. Again, theyplan to license this to ISPs and the like. It features email, IM, photo-sharing, calendarand works on mobile devices.Laszlo Digital LifeAll in all, OpenLaszlo is a compelling platform for building rich Ajax applications –or even Flash apps. They have a hard road to hoe competing against Adobe, a comparativelyhuge company with many more resources at their disposal (internal developers, marketing,brand name, money, etc). But being open source gives OpenLaszlo a lot of credibility inthe developer community. It would be even better if they got a couple more ‘glamor’projects like the Pandora one, to raise their profile in the consumer world.What are your thoughts on Laszlo?

Arsenal 0 Manchester City 3

first_imgArsenal 0 Manchester City 3: Guardiola routs Wenger again in 100th game in charge Jamie Smith Last updated 1 year ago 05:36 2/3/2018 Bernardo Silva Getty Images Arsene Wenger’s position at Arsenal looks increasingly precarious after a second thumping defeat by Manchester City in five days. Manchester City delivered another sublime show of attacking brilliance as Pep Guardiola’s side marked the manager’s 100th game in charge with a 3-0 demolition of hapless Arsenal.City beat Arsenal by the same scoreline in Sunday’s EFL Cup final win at Wembley, giving Guardiola a first trophy after 18 months in English football.And the runaway Premier League leaders – now 16 points clear of rivals Manchester United – blew Arsenal away before the break, becoming the first team to score three goals away to the Gunners in the first half of a Premier League match. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Williams case shows Solskjaer isn’t holding Man Utd’s youngsters back – he’s protecting them Goalkeeper crisis! Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Arsenal made a decent start but Leroy Sane fed Bernardo Silva for a glorious opener after 15 minutes, and the Germany international was then involved in a stunning team goal as David Silva – who was on target at Wembley – added a second.Sane scored the third before the break, finishing off another superb move, as Arsenal were regularly sliced open at a half-empty Emirates, the stadium adorned with blue lines in the snow.Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had a second-half penalty saved and another heavy defeat increases the growing pressure on Arsene Wenger, whose side are 10 points outside the Champions League qualification places, as sensational City close in on the title.3 – Arsenal have conceded three goals in the first half of a Premier League home game for the first time ever. Overwhelmed.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) March 1, 2018Henrikh Mkhitaryan urged Arsenal to “fight” for Wenger in the build-up to the game and Ederson had to save an early sighter from the Armenia international, while Vincent Kompany deflected a cross from Aaron Ramsey into the chest of City’s goalkeeper.But the visitors scored with their first meaningful attack, Bernardo Silva netting a brilliant strike.Sane drove at the Arsenal defence with pace and skill, slipping in the Portugal international, who worked the ball on to his left foot and bent a glorious curler into Petr Cech’s top-right corner.Ederson beat away Granit Xhaka’s long-range free-kick, the goalkeeper then diving to his right to cling on to a sharp Ramsey strike.But City’s clinical cutting edge sliced Arsenal open with another breathtaking attack after 27 minutes.Sane was at the heart of it again, bamboozling Shkodran Mustafi and feeding Sergio Aguero, who laid the ball into David Silva’s path. The Spain international’s first touch was perfect, the second lashing a left-footed finish beyond a helpless Cech.If you dont like this you dont like football !!! #SharkTeam— Benjamin Mendy (@benmendy23) March 1, 2018City were rampant, a glorious third arriving within five minutes, Sane this time on target.Aguero’s clever touch on the halfway line created acres of space in the Arsenal defence, Kevin De Bruyne sliding Kyle Walker clear to square a low cross for Sane to roll the ball home.Nicolas Otamendi’s poor challenge on Mkhitaryan offered Arsenal a lifeline shortly after the restart – the Gunners having been booed off at the break – but Ederson dived to his left to keep out Aubameyang’s tame penalty.11 – Manchester City have saved 11 of the last 19 penalties they have faced in all competitions (excludes penalty shootouts). Intimidating.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) March 1, 2018With the game won before the break, City were understandably less incisive, some sloppy passing marring their second-half display, while Walker limped off with 20 minutes remaining.Cech denied Aguero his 200th goal for the club but Guardiola could not have hoped for a more comprehensive victory to mark his City century, with Wenger left to wonder how to fix a team that has been heavily beaten three times by the league leaders this season. Key Opta stats:- Arsenal suffered their joint-heaviest home Premier League defeat, having also lost by three-goal margins to Coventry (1993), Middlesbrough (2001) and Chelsea (twice in 2009).- Manchester City have now scored more Premier League goals this season (82) than they scored in the entirety of last season (80).- This was Manchester City’s biggest away win at Arsenal in any competition since a 4-0 triumph in November 1912.- The Gunners have lost more matches in all competitions in 2018 than any other Premier League team (seven).- Arsenal are now on their longest Premier League run without a clean sheet (10 matches) since February 2002 (11 matches).- David Silva is only the third David to score on St. David’s Day in the Premier League, after David Dunn (Blackburn v Man City in 2003) and David Luiz (Chelsea v Man Utd in 2011).- This was the first time Arsenal conceded three goals in the first half of a home Premier League game and the first time they’d done so in a home league game since March 1989 against Nottingham Forest. read morelast_img read more
