Starbucks Opening 743 N. Lake Ave Pasadena @starbucks

Update: Now open.

What used to be FatBurger in Pasadena on Lake Ave has now been remodeled into a Starbucks.
The new Starbucks location located at: 743 N Lake Ave., Pasadena, CA 91104, is scheduled to open August 22, 2014.
Not sure of any specials or promotions taking place to celebrate the opening of this new location.

Here’s the streetview from Google as it appears occupied by FatBurger.

See Pasadena CUP application notice hearing that took place in July 2014. Now a little over a month later, the location is now opening, that is some quick work on behalf of Starbucks. The location looks modern and great, a real improvement over what was a run down empty abandoned looking building previously occupied by FatBurger.

 

The CUP specifically states:

Subject to the review and approval of a Conditional Use Permit, the restaurant may operate prior to 7:00 a.m. and/or after 10:00 p.m. The sale of alcohol is not proposed with this application

2014 Los Angeles County Fair
The 2014 Los Angeles County Fair celebrates the best of Southern California—and many other parts of the world. Luminasia lights up the fair with Asian-inspired, whimsical lanterns that are handcrafted from China. Blossoms sway in the Flower & Garden Pavilion and Atrium, devoted to Chinese-style gardens and exhibits of the flora and fauna of China’s tropical rainforests. The Beneath the Sea exhibit brings fairgoers face to fin with sharks, stingrays, and sea lions. Capuchin monkey Mojo rules over the Wild and Crazy Lagoon and its other creatures. Drawn from closer to home, hundreds of Californian crops surround a barn where visitors can milk a goat or maybe even witness a calf hatching from its egg.

Humans and superhumans get their day in the sun, too. The Hall of Heroes has real-life rescuers stand side by side with Batman, Spiderman, and Superman—perhaps standing ready in case any swashbucklers escape the Pirates of the Sky stage show and try to conscript members of Esmeralda’s Traveling Circus.

As the sun sets, the doors of Grinding Gears creak open, revealing a steampunk-themed nightclub where bands and DJs mix pop and industrial sounds as acrobats flip through the air. And late into the night, the lights of a slew of traditional carnival rides whirl through the air like exceedingly well-behaved fireworks.

AxS FESTIVAL 2014 @axsFestival

Coming Soon: KPCC is looking forward to being a part of the 2014 AxS Festival by hosting a variety of events at our Crawford Family Forum.

AxS is a two-week city-wide festival that explores the nexus of science and the arts. More details will become available soon, but programs will include an installment of NEXT: People | Science | Tomorrow; Planetary Radio Live; and a Community Cinema screening of “MAKERS: Women in Space.” Watch for more information at kpcc.org/forum.

PASADENA, CITY OF ART + SCIENCE | September 19 – October 5, 2014

About

AxS FESTIVAL 2014 | CURIOSITY
TWO WEEKS OF ART, DANCE, MUSIC, THEATER, PERFORMANCE and PROVOCATIVE CONVERSATION

AxS [ak-sis] is a two-week citywide festival produced by the Pasadena Arts Council that explores the nexus of artistic and scientific inquiry, promoting experimentation and cross-fertilization between these disciplines. It is our conviction that the interplay between human curiosity, scientific investigation and artistic risk-taking reflects a cultural zeitgeist that not only defines Pasadena as the City of Art and Science, but also illuminates the richness, diversity, and sheer innovation of human aspiration and achievement in the 21st century.

In fall 2014 Pasadena Arts Council will present the sixth AxS Festival, a proving ground where ideas, scientific theories and leading-edge technologies converge with artistic innovation across a multidisciplinary platform of architecture, new media, visual art, music, theater, educational programs and provocative conversation. The AxS Festival is a response to our contemporary cultural condition — a concentrated exploration designed to ignite and inspire the imagination of audiences and participants alike.

AxS Festival 2014 invites you to a two-week expedition — presented at partner venues throughout the city — across uncharted territory on the boundary between art and science.

Oak Crest Receives $20 Million Grant to Develop Drug Delivery System to Prevent HIV Infection in Women #pasadena #biotech #hiv

Oak Crest Receives $20 Million Grant to Develop Drug Delivery System to Prevent HIV Infection in Women

August 13, 2014 (Pasadena, CA) – Researchers at the Oak Crest Institute of Science announced that they have been awarded a $20 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to systematically develop an intravaginal ring capable of delivering powerful antiretroviral (ARV) drugs to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted HIV in women.

After more than 40 years of research, prevention of HIV infection continues to be a critical global health priority. According to the World Health Organization, there are some 35 million people living with HIV in the world today. Approximately 70 percent of all people living with HIV are from Sub-Saharan Africa.

Intravaginal rings, currently available commercially for contraception and hormone replacement therapy, have shown promise as a drug delivery system to prevent HIV infection. However, most designs currently under investigation cannot deliver multiple-drug combinations of the many available antiretroviral drugs developed to combat HIV infection. While combinations of three antiretroviral drugs are highly successful in treatment of HIV infection, their use in an intravaginal ring platform has not been possible until now. Furthermore, the best combination of drugs to prevent sexual HIV infection is not known.

“This Program will allow us, for the first time, to rigorously test a large group of antiretroviral drugs in a systematic fashion so that we can determine what combination is best for preventing sexual HIV via vaginal delivery,” said principal investigator, Marc Baum, Ph.D., president and senior faculty at Oak Crest. “This project is, in large part, enabled by our pod-intravaginal ring (pod-IVR) platform. We have shown that the platform can deliver five different drugs simultaneously and at independently controlled dosages, which is unlike any other device under development today. In addition, the modular design of our pod-IVRs allows us to accelerate the development of prototypes, a critical element to testing many combinations as part of this Program,” he added. “Our technology platform also has the crucial advantage of scalability in manufacturing as the majority of the fabrication steps are identical regardless of the drug substances in the combination. This scalability and potential for economical manufacture will be crucial for any product to be used in the developing world.”

This five-year grant is funded under the NIH U19 Program, a mechanism that funds collaborative projects involving multiple institutions. Oak Crest is the lead institution in this collaboration that also includes teams of researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the University of Texas Medical Branch, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, the University of Colorado, Boulder, Scripps Research Institute, University of California, Los Angeles, Vanderbilt University, Miriam Hospital and Auritec Pharmaceuticals. “We are fortunate to be part of a stellar team of investigators from all over the country. Through this partnership, I feel confident that we will meet our goal of using a novel screening process to scientifically determine the best-performing candidates in order to advance them rapidly into clinical trials,” said Dr. Baum.

Oak Crest has already reached significant milestones in this scientific arena by becoming the first to successfully administer Truvada, the only FDA approved regimen for HIV prevention, from an IVR. This milestone was accomplished in collaboration with the CDC where the novel pod-IVRs were evaluated in pig-tailed macaques over a 28-day period.

Sustained release approaches to drug delivery for the prevention of HIV infection, such as the pod-IVR, is especially appealing for use in the developing world, in contrast to daily therapies, where adherence is often an issue. Such devices are less expensive on a per-patient, per-day basis, they are capable of both rapid and sustained drug delivery for at least a month, and they sustain their effectiveness without refrigeration, an important consideration for use in resource-limited settings.

“The significance of this research is profound. Our goal is to empower women to protect themselves from HIV infection with the best biomedical solution,” said Dr. Baum. “The foundation we have already laid, coupled with the results from this innovative study, will help us accelerate the development of this pre-exposure prophylactic device,” said Dr. Baum. “This process is especially important when considering that for each year we delay, close to a million women in sub-Saharan Africa alone could become infected,” he added.

Crawling Insect Control Dust – 100% Diatomaceous Earth

Crawling Insect Control Dust with Free Hand Duster Organic, Safe, and Long-Lasting Insect Elimination Our Organic Crawling Insect Control Dust is 100% Diatomaceous Earth, which is composed of finely milled fossilized shells of microscopic organisms called diatoms. It is a light dust that clings easily to the bodies of insects as they walk or crawl over it. Unlike boric acid dusts that work best when ingested, Crawling Insect Control Dust only requires contact with the insect to be effective. The dust then absorbs the waxy cuticle surrounding the insect, causing the insect to dehydrate and die. Organic Crawling Insect Control Dust also has a great long term residual effect when applied to cracks and crevices.

Crawling Insect Control Dust 2lb Package (w/Free Hand Duster)

Nature’s Innovation is a leader in Natural Homeopathic Remedies that WORK! Started in 2004 by Bill Carlson out of his garage, Nature’s Innovation has grown into a company with many different products & a large customer base across North America and even Europe.

Los Angeles Clippers
August 12, 2014To the Clippers Family -

You may now have heard that this morning I officially became the owner of your Los Angeles Clippers. So as my first official communication, let me say thank you for continuing to support the Clipper organization. We are now looking forward to an exciting new season and I can’t wait to experience the opening tip off with you.

Today marks the beginning of a new era in the life of our franchise. It also is the culmination of a dream that I have harbored for many years. To Coach Rivers, to our fantastic players, and most importantly to you, the dedicated fans that make this all possible, I pledge this: I will be hard core in my commitment to give the team the support it needs to be its best on and off the court. And I will do whatever is necessary to provide you, your family and friends with the best game-night experience in the NBA.

The Clippers franchise is a true public trust, and my goal is that the Clippers will play an ever-increasing role in the life of our community. We will achieve this goal the same way we will succeed on the court: By waking up every day and figuring out how we can be better – how we can do more – how we can ensure that the Clippers organization is not only winning on the court but also making a real difference in the community.

That is the challenge I set not only for myself but the entire Clippers organization.

Please join me for our Fan Festival, on Monday, August 18th at the STAPLES Center at 12:30 p.m. to celebrate what promises to be a bright future!

Sincerely,

Steve A. Ballmer

Top Rated Store Websites for Online Ordering and Store Pickup

The increasing trend is ordering online and being able to drive down to the local store and pickup your merchandise the same day.

Many stores offer this service but which ones really have it down and which ones are offering perks to those using the service.

Stores offering online ordering with store pickup:

Home Depot – offers a special parking place for those picking up online orders

Staples – have used them several times and it works, you can do ship to store for free if the item is not in stock at the store

Lowe’s – is improving their service, but as I have documented in the past, they have some things to work out. The online ordering and offerings do not match what is available in the store in many instances.

Walmart – offered

Sears – have used it several times and it works, they offer special curbside service for pickups at the store, although on a recent visit not only was the number not working, but the kiosk at the pickup area had crashed.

Target – go to customer service wait in line and pickup your order, pretty seamless.

Fry’s – ordering online is smooth, you go to one of the cashiers and show them your items to pickup and and they usually have it in the cage waiting for you.

There are many other stores offering online ordering and store pickup.  We will add to the list as we collect more data and experiences.

Robin Williams Dies of Suspected Suicide

The full release from the Marin County office:

On August 11, 2014, at approximately 11:55 am, Marin County Communications received a 9-1-1 telephone call reporting a male adult had been located unconscious and not breathing inside his residence in unincorporated Tiburon, CA. The Sheriff’s Office, as well as the Tiburon Fire Department and Southern Marin Fire Protection District were dispatched to the incident with emergency personnel arriving on scene at 12:00 pm. The male subject, pronounced deceased at 12:02 pm has been identified as Robin McLaurin Williams, a 63 year old resident of unincorporated Tiburon, CA.

An investigation into the cause, manner, and circumstances of the death is currently underway by the Investigations and Coroner Divisions of the Sheriff’s Office. Preliminary information developed during the investigation indicates Mr. Williams was last seen alive at his residence, where he resides with his wife, at approximately 10:00 pm on August 10, 2014. Mr. Williams was located this morning shortly before the 9-1-1 call was placed to Marin County Communications.

Note: If a storm is expected to dissipate within 5 days, its track will be shorter

This could be a one two punch, followed by tropical storm Julio, which is apparently weakening, but things could change, still it packs strong winds as a tropical storm, if it is not a hurricane classified.

It has been 22 years since a hurricane hit the Hawaiian Islands. Officials are preparing and residents are bracing for flooding, power outages, mudslides, high winds, in particular on the big island of Hawaii.

Iselle is moving slowly at approx 18 MPH.

Update:

As it passes south, the closest approach of to Honolulu is forecast to be 9 AM HST Friday.

No change update: 12 to 18 foot surf anticipated with along Maui County coast, favoring east facing. Stay out of water.
