To share these plans with the community, we will host a series of informational meetings designed to provide details on the sediment removal activities to restore and maintain flood control capacity and the habitat enhancement program that will create and preserve native habitat within and around the reservoir.

Supplyframe Launches Pasadena Design Lab to Inspire the Future of Electronics HardwareCreation
World’s largest online collaborative hardware development community expands with physical location in the heart of Pasadena.
PASADENA, Calif.Supplyframe, the Industry Network for electronics hardware design and manufacturing today announced the launch of the Supplyframe Design Lab. Located in Pasadena, Calif., the Design Lab’s mission is to bring together inventors and entrepreneurs, to explore the future of how hardware projects are designed, built and brought to market.
The Design Lab is Supplyframe’s physical representation of one of the world’s largest online engineering communities, with more than 6 million people using the company’s electronic component discovery, supply chain management and project collaboration platforms.
With a 4,900squarefoot research and development studio packed with professionalgrade tools to facilitate collaboration in product design, manufacturing, art and technology, the Supplyframe Design Lab represents a perfect location for hardware innovation, entrepreneurial thinking, tinkering, education and thought leadership.
While current trends in creative workplace design focus on spaces that are light, airy and warm, the Design Lab is stark, industrial and elegant to encourage the raw energy and passion needed to create something new. Cory Grosser says, “ The lab is not a warmloft concept, but a design inspired by caffeine fueled allnighters, late night coding sessions and underground skunkworks. It’s a place designed for radical innovation.”
An open house launch party takes place today (June 23) at the Supplyframe Design Lab, 30 East Del Mar Blvd. in Pasadena.
“Over the next ten years, some of the most exciting developments in technology will be about connecting the digital to the physical in new and creative ways” said Steve Flagg, CEO and Founder of Supplyframe. “We built the Design Lab to explore that rapidly evolving intersection and to inspire inventors and entrepreneurs to bring truly innovative hardware to market.”
In the coming period, Supplyframe Design Lab’s Resident Engineer Dan Hienzsch, will welcome residents for 3monthlong funded residencies. The Design Lab seeks product design or prototype project proposals from the worldwide community of engineers, hardware startups, designers and builders for its first round of residencies, which begin July 1st, 2016.
Residencies fall into one of two tracks. Designers in the product track will be supported in mentorship and sponsorship to build physical products in VR, assistive technology, wearable computing, home automation, artificial intelligence, medical devices etc. Artists in the arttech track will receive mentorship and funding to build ambitious projects, electronic objects and interfaces, holography and interactive installations.
Dan Hienzsch, Design Lab’s Resident Engineer, and other mentors, including Hackaday’s Sophi Kravitz, will advise Design Lab residents as they work toward making their proposals a reality.
Brainstorming and collaboration among residents is encouraged. Design residents and members of the local design/tech community will also have opportunities to meet and share ideas with remarkable designers and engineers during workshops, meetups and tech talks.

Schlesinger v. Ticketmaster Settlement Information Site
UPDATE JUNE 22 11:30 PM EDT
At this time, nearly $5m worth of eligible ticket vouchers have been redeemed and the first wave of eligible events has been closed. Given the overwhelming interest, Ticketmaster is adding another $5m worth of eligible tickets so more class members can redeem ticket vouchers. Please check back tomorrow for additional information.
UPDATE JUNE 21 1:35 AM EDT
In 2003, the Schlesinger v. Ticketmaster class action lawsuit was filed alleging that Ticketmaster failed to fully disclose to consumers all aspects of its UPS and Order Processing Fees. While vigorously defending the lawsuit, Ticketmaster settled the case in 2013, with the court granting final approval of the settlement in February 2015.
The settlement class includes all consumers who transacted on Ticketmaster.com from 1999-2013.
As part of the settlement,
Ticketmaster agreed to provide all members of the class a $2.25 credit on the future purchase of primary tickets for each transaction over the class period, for up to 17 claims.
In addition, a $5 UPS voucher was made available to members of the class who had used UPS delivery during the class period, again to a maximum of 17 claims.
Also Ticketmaster agreed to provide $5 million in ticket vouchers for select Live Nation concerts through May 2017, subject to availability and a cap of 17 claims per account. Given the tremendous initial interest for these tickets, Ticketmaster will increase to $10 million its allotment of tickets made available through May 2017. The potential for additional tickets will be based on the redemption rates of the discount and UPS vouchers.
This website displays the list of eligible events for which the settlement ticket vouchers may be used. Please note that the list of eligible events will be periodically updated.
How to redeem your ticket voucher:
Once ticket codes are made available to you in your Ticketmaster account (https://www.ticketmaster.com/member/vouchers), you may attempt to use the codes for redemption on this website. The ticket codes are available on a first come, first serve basis.
Select an event from the list of eligible events displayed on this website and proceed through the purchase process. Note that codes for ticket vouchers can be used on eligible general admission tickets.
On the Billing Page, during your transaction, look for a “Voucher Code” link and enter your code to receive your discount(s).
