“We are excited to be back in North America playing stadiums this summer! We are looking forward to being back on stage and playing your favorite songs.” – Mick Jagger

“We love being out on the road and it is great to come back to North America! I can’t wait to get back on the stage!” – Keith Richards

The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour will see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood head back out on the road after their critically-acclaimed 14 ON FIRE tour in Asia, Europe, Australia and New Zealand in 2014. The iconic band will treat their generations of fans to special one night only shows, with a set packed full of classic Stones hits such as ‘Gimme Shelter’, ‘Paint It Black’, ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash’, ‘Tumbling Dice’ and ‘It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll’, as well as special gems from their extraordinary catalogue.

The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour will be the first time the rock legends have played North American stadiums since 2005-2007’s A Bigger Bang Tour.

The stage design for the stadium shows includes a thrust that extends deep into the audience allowing the Stones to interact directly with their fans. Known for their ground-breaking sets and use of cutting-edge technology, the Stones’ set design will feature video screens and special effects that will enhance the high-octane experience of attending a live Stones’ show.

AEG Live’s Concerts West is the promoter of The Rolling Stones ZIP CODE tour.

CicLavia Pasadena May 31, 2015 @CicLAvia #ciclaviapasadena #ciclaviapas

CicLavia Pasadena May 31, 2015

On Sunday, May 31, main drag Colorado Boulevard will be shut down from just west of Fair Oaks all the way to Pasadena City College, says a release from event organizers. The 3.5-mile route will branch off on some side streets (Raymond, Lake) on the way, and, of course, the Metro-sponsored event will have connections to both the Memorial Park and Del Mar Gold Line stations to maximize the day’s car-free potential.

Read more about it here

CicLAvia Pasadena – Presented by Metro

Pasadena has played host to parades, bike races and music festivals, and for the first time is opening its streets to the largest car-free open streets event in America. CicLAvia – Pasadena Presented by Metro takes place from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 31. The city will lend its own charm and flair to CicLAvia as participants travel along Colorado Boulevard, and down side streets to parks and historic architecture using foot, pedal and non-motorized wheel power. Go Metro to CicLAvia, the event route will connect to the Memorial and Del Mar the Metro Gold Line Stations enabling participants to have a car-free or car-lite day.

CicLAvia – Pasadena Presented by Metro is the most walkable CicLAvia to date at 3.5 miles. The cozy distance will offer participants the opportunity to peruse and explore Pasadena’s business gems and cultural treasures. Spurs off the main route on Raymond Avenue and Lake Street will take participants to local parks. And CicLAvia’s new partnership with Kurios – Cabinet of Curiosities, Cirque du Soleil’s newest touring Big Top show, coming to southern California this fall, will give participants young and old a smile-inducing and awe-inspiring entertainment adventure.

The Pasadena route is made possible with a grant from Metro Los Angeles.

New to CicLAvia? Here are four things you need to know for May 31:

  • It’s FREE!
  • It’s not a race and you don’t need a bike to participate. You can walk or skate to your heart’s content.
  • There’s no beginning or end. You can start anywhere and go as far or as short as you want.
  • The flow of participants goes both ways, just like regular traffic.

www.flintridgebooks.com

PRESS RELEASE:  March 23, 2015   CONTACT: Gail Mishkin, (818) 790-0717, gailm@flintridgebooks.com

 ERIK M. CONWAY, JPL Historian

“Exploration and Engineering: The Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Quest for Mars”

Book Signing: Thursday, March 26, 7 PM

 

 

La Cañada Flintridge, CA – On Thursday, March 26, at 7 PM, Flintridge Bookstore & Coffeehouse hosts a talk and booksigning for Erik M. Conway, historian of science and technology at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), California Institute of Technology, and author of Exploration and Engineering: The Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Quest for Mars.

 

Although the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, has become synonymous with the United States’ planetary exploration during the past half century, its most recent focus has been on Mars. Beginning in the 1990s and continuing through the Mars Phoenix mission of 2007, JPL led the way in engineering an impressive, rapidly evolving succession of Mars orbiters and landers, including roving robotic vehicles whose successful deployment onto the Martian surface posed some of the most complicated technical problems in space flight history.

 

In Exploration and Engineering, Conway reveals how JPL engineers’ creative technological feats led to major Mars exploration breakthroughs. He takes readers into the heart of the lab’s problem-solving approach and management structure, where talented scientists grappled with technical challenges while also coping, not always successfully, with funding shortfalls, unrealistic schedules, and managerial turmoil.

 

Conway offers an insider’s perspective into the changing goals of Mars exploration, the ways in which sophisticated computer simulations drove the design process, and the remarkable evolution of landing technologies over a thirty-year period.

 

“No subject in the history of planetary science has been more publicly enticing than the efforts to understand Mars. In Exploration and Engineering, historian Erik M. Conway presents a very detailed, mission-by-mission discussion of Mars exploration since Viking. This capably told narrative captures the fascinating details of the Mars program at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.” — Roger D. Launius, National Air and Space Museum, editor of Exploring the Solar System: The History and Science of Planetary Exploration

 

Conway is also the author of Atmospheric Science at NASA: A History.

 

For more information, contact Gail Mishkin at (818) 790-0717.  Flintridge Bookstore and Coffeehouse is located at 1010 Foothill Blvd., La Cañada Flintridge, CA 91011, at the intersection of Foothill Blvd. and the Angeles Crest Hwy.  Take the Angeles Crest exit off the 210, turn south, make a right onto Foothill Blvd., and turn left onto Chevy Chase.  Parking is in the rear of the store.

Fly Geyser – Nevada Desert

Fly Ranch Project

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-OB-wmN2LyGM/UeUr1eKAf1I/AAAAAAAAApo/1bTnTg3d8hk/s1285-k-no/Fly_geyser.jpg
Андрей Пономарев

 

The phenomenon is called “Fly Geyser” and is formed by an accident when a ranch owner drilled for water in the Nevada desert.

Located on a gated parcel of private property within the million-acre Black Rock Desert, Fly Geyser is not a natural phenomenon. It was created accidentally in 1964 from a geothermal test well inadequately capped. The scalding water has erupted from the well since then, leaving calcium carbonate deposits growing at the rate of several inches per year. The brilliant red and green coloring on the mounds is from thermophilic algae thriving in the extreme micro-climate of the geysers. Unfortunately, Fly Geyser is not open to the public.

It began in the early twentieth-century when the ranch owner drilled a well to raise the quality of the agriculture. But when they had drilled the whole way down to the water they stopped because the water temperature was 200 degrees. In 1964 there was a second attempt. It also failed because the water was too hot.

The landlord is usually kind and guide the tourists that visit the area. But first you have to get in contact with them to get in. The price for a guided tour differ from time to time.

Pasadena Earth Day – Earth Month Celebration 2015 @pwpnews @pasadenagov #pasadena #earthday

The city of Pasadena is not going to have a single event for Earth Day 2015, apparently the City Manager, Michael Beck thought and made the decision that there should be several events during the month to celebrate Earth Month.

In celebration of green living, Earth Day, and Water Awareness Month, Pasadena Water and Power (PWP) will encourage sustainable living practices during the months of April and May with support of numerous events and workshops. In addition, PWP is encoraging the community to make a water pledge for a chance to win a Toyota Prius (courtesy of the Wyland Foundation).

PWP will also be hosting educational workshops on how to create Drought Tolerant Landscapes; PWP will swap old inefficient irrigation controllers for new Weather Based Irrigation Controllers (free of charge) at Descanso Gardens on May 31st, and will encourage the community to stock up on earth friendly LEDs this spring for a fraction of the cost at PWP’s online LED Webshop.
