“AMERICAN CHEESE” IS UN-AMERICAN
Sign the White House petition to remove America’s name from processed cheese. If we reach our goal of 100,000 signatures, the White House will respond to this important national issue.
Remove America’s Name From Processed “American Cheese”
We the people of the United States of America are being falsely represented by our namesake “American Cheese”.
With as many as 18 ingredients like sorbic acid and sodium phosphate, the FDA says processed “American Cheese” can’t even be called cheese. Rather it must be referred to as a “cheese product.”
Is that the America our forefathers like Honest Abe Lincoln had in mind?
Out of respect for the hard work and integrity that our nation was built upon, we respectfully ask that these processed, plastic-wrapped slices of deception be stripped of America’s name.

SpaceX CRS-7 Launch Explosion Falcon 9
The unmanned SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket exploded on its way to the international space station on Sunday morning just minutes after taking off from Cape Canaveral in Florida. The first time the Falcon 9 has failed in 19 launches.
Exactly what happened is still being investigated, but this is what Ellon Musk posted on twitter.
There was an overpressure event in the upper stage liquid oxygen tank. Data suggests counterintuitive cause.

Plans have been filed with the city to develop a marketplace where the existing Websters and Hallmark store was located at 2450 Lake.
The developer has provided a deck to showcase the intended project.
Millers (owners of Webster’s Community Pharmacy and MeredithM) will be staying. These plans pertain to our old space and the old Hallmark space.
There are some great stores already in the area, on E Woodbury (AttireLA) and Fair Oak with Hoopla and Lailha’s Loft.
There is a trend of new artist studios opening.

Alibaba Leases 22,000 Sq Ft in Pasadena Playhouse Plaza
After looking at space on the West Coast, Alibaba decided on Pasadena. This is a major victory for Pasadena’s tech sector.
Alibaba is the largest ecommerce company on the planet.
Alibaba, raised $25 billion in their U.S. IPO.
- Taobao Marketplace (www.taobao.com), China’s largest online shopping destination
- Tmall.com (www.tmall.com), China’s largest third-party platform for brands and retailers
- Juhuasuan (www.juhuasuan.com), China’s most popular online group buying marketplace
- Alitrip (www.alitrip.com), a leading online travel booking platform
- AliExpress (www.aliexpress.com), a global online marketplace for consumers to buy directly from China

- 1688.com (www.1688.com), a leading online wholesale marketplace in China
- Aliyun (www.aliyun.com), a provider of cloud computing services to businesses and entrepreneurs
What Alibaba will use the space for is still not known. Some speculate it could be a combination of different divisions, and perhaps some Yahoo related business.
Shares of Alibaba(BABA) closed at 85.24 today up .07. The stock has been struggling on the NYSE after reaching a high of $120 in November 2014.
BisNow reported on May 1, 2015 that Alibaba was looking at space.
We hope that Alibaba opening offices in Pasadena will lead to exciting new developments with the ever increasing tech community in Pasadena.
