Vroman’s Bookstore presents
Hillary Rodham Clinton
signing What Happened

“In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I’ve often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net. Now I’m letting my guard down.”
-Hillary Rodham Clinton, from the introduction of What Happened

About the Book:
For the first time, Hillary Rodham Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history. Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. This is her most personal memoir yet.

In these pages, she describes what it was like to run against Donald Trump, the mistakes she made, how she has coped with a shocking and devastating loss, and how she found the strength to pick herself back up afterward. With humor and candor, she tells readers what it took to get back on her feet–the rituals, relationships, and reading that got her through, and what the experience has taught her about life. She speaks about the challenges of being a strong woman in the public eye, the criticism over her voice, age, and appearance, and the double standard confronting women in politics.
She lays out how the 2016 election was marked by an unprecedented assault on our democracy by a foreign adversary. By analyzing the evidence and connecting the dots, Hillary shows just how dangerous the forces are that shaped the outcome, and why Americans need to understand them to protect our values and our democracy in the future.

The election of 2016 was unprecedented and historic. What Happened is the story of that campaign and its aftermath–both a deeply intimate account and a cautionary tale for the nation. (Simon & Schuster)

Important Message about the Equifax Data Breach
 

This was sent to customers of Logix Federal Credit Union

Important Message about the
Equifax Data Breach

As you have likely heard, the credit bureau Equifax suffered a data breach that has the potential to impact 143 million Americans. This breach occurred because of unauthorized access to Equifax’s systems, and was not in any way caused by unauthorized access to any of the Credit Union’s systems. While there is no way to know with certainty whether you are affected, you can take several steps to protect yourself.

  • To help determine if your information may have been compromised, Equifax has established a dedicated website, www.equifaxsecurity2017.com, which includes information about the breach, a search tool to determine if you may have been impacted, and the option to opt in to credit monitoring services offered by Equifax. You can also call Equifax at 866-447-7559 any day of the week, including weekends, from 4:00 am – 10:00 pm PT.
  • Visit www.identitytheft.gov for resources on identity theft, freezing your credit report, and steps to take with the three different credit bureaus to dispute any unauthorized activity.
  • If you experience fraud on your account, place a fraud alert with any of the three credit bureaus – Experian, Equifax, or Trans Union – to alert potential creditors and lenders to take extra steps to identify you.
  • Check your credit report for suspicious activity. Get a free copy of your credit report every year at www.annualcreditreport.com. If you find any unauthorized activity, notify the related financial institution or other agency immediately.
  • Consider signing up for a service that routinely monitors your credit and protects your identity. Logix offers this type of service through Merchants Information Services, which also includes assistance with recovering your identity should it be stolen.
  • Finally, consider activating two services available through Online Banking to further protect your account: Multi-Factor Authentication and Customizable Text and Email Alerts. Turn on Multi-Factor Authentication and receive a passcode alert to successfully log in each time an attempt is made to access your Online Banking account.

Mercado Restaurant Coming to Pasadena @SouthLakeAvenue @chefelmexicano
 

Jesse Gomez owner of Mercado restaurants is reported to be opening a new location in Pasadena, where Seco recently closed. This was previously the location Cafe 140 South and Crocodile Cafe. Apparently the Smith brothers gave it their best shot with this location and the remodels after each opening. It is sad to see the closing of Seco, but we look forward to Mercado opening, reportedly in early 2018.

Jesse_bw.jpg

More about Jesse Gomez and Executive Chef/Partner Jose Acevedo here.

Mercado would bring a modern Mexican option to Pasadena.  With several locations around Los Angeles, this location would be a great fit offering diners on South Lake another option.

140 South Lake Ave, Pasadena, CA

This location will offer lunch and dinner with favorites from other Mercado locations.  See some of the menu items here or visit the website

South Lake has seen a rise in dining options recently, with Paul Martin’s, Del Frisco, Urban Plates, and the under construction and soon to be opening Arbour Restaurant, Granville, and Nicks.

Microsoft Windows Promotes Edge Browser When Google Chrome & Firefox Browsers Are Used
 

Has anyone noticed and been annoyed when you launch Firefox or Chrome and a popup appears with a message that Firefox is slow, or Chrome uses battery, these may be subtle messages to some, but annoying to others.

Microsoft obviously wants users to use Edge, but this practice seems a little out of sorts.  Maybe Firefox and Chrome could do the same thing when Edge is opened?  But if they did, perhaps Microsoft would sue them…

Burbank Mayor Will Rogers Announces He Has Cancer

Will Reduce His Mayoral Obligations

Post Date: 09/20/2017 3:22 PM

Burbank, Calif. (September 20, 2017) – Burbank Mayor Will Rogers stated today that he has an aggressive form of liver cancer and his doctor has ordered him to reduce his Mayoral activities in order to receive treatment and rest.

At a press conference, Mayor Rogers announced, “It is with much regret that I must step back on my activities but my primary focus right now is to get well. While I will remain Mayor, I have asked Vice-Mayor Emily Gabel-Luddy to help by fulfilling some of my official responsibilities.  She has graciously accepted.”

Throughout his career as a journalist, while campaigning and in his capacity as a City Councilmember, Mayor Rogers has made it his highest priority to provide transparency and honesty. “I have repeatedly pledged to ensure that the community has access to the information it needs.  I’ve tried to instill and encourage this culture throughout the city and I’m convinced this effort is succeeding.”

“Today is another example of openness.  While I want to protect my privacy, I also feel that our community has a right to know why they will not see me as often at ribbon cuttings and community meetings.”

The entire City Council is standing by Rogers.  “It is an extremely courageous act for our Mayor to share his personal challenge with all of us,” stated Vice-Mayor Gabel-Luddy.  “I know that I speak for the full City Council when I say that we are in complete support of his efforts and look forward to continuing our work with him. Mayor Rogers provides Burbank with outstanding service and we know the community, along with Will’s friends and family, will be understanding and supportive.  We wish him the best as he focuses on this challenge.”

Mayor Rogers has been diagnosed with stage 4 hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and non-alcoholic cirrhosis.  While most forms of hepatocellular carcinoma are thought to be related to hepatitis, Mayor Rogers has not been diagnosed with this disease.  In his case a transplant along with traditional forms of chemotherapy have been ruled out. He is currently participating in drug trials and immuno-therapy.
