Members of the JLP volunteer hundreds of hours each year to support this core issue area and the women in our community.Hatch is beginning her fifth active year of membership with the Junior League of Pasadena, having served on the New Member Committee and such leadership roles as Marketing Chair, Operations Director, and President-Elect. She has been passionate about volunteering for years, having also volunteered with KEY Club and Kiwanis. Hatch moved to Pasadena 14 years ago to pursue her dream job, which she now holds as a Mission Design and Navigation Engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.“I’m looking forward to all the collaborations we have planned this year, especially with other women’s and women-led organizations as we celebrate the centennial of the passing of the 19th Amendment,” said Hatch. “It’s so inspiring to look back at the 93 years of history and accomplishments and know that our amazing members are working hard to lay the groundwork for improving our community for decades to come.”Hatch has been a part of JLP’s facilitation of debuting PasadenaHelp.org, a database of community services available to the people of Greater Pasadena, California. She looks forward to continuing her involvement with the local resource, in particular, continuing to develop a sustainable infrastructure and support for the site.“Getting to know Sara better over the last few years has been a pleasure and JLP is in the best of hands,” said JLP Past-President 2018-2019 Charlotte Miles. “She is very dedicated, caring, and innovative. Her passion and determination will make this year a successful and fun time to be a part of JLP.”About Junior League of PasadenaFounded in 1926, the Junior League of Pasadena is a non-profit organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective leadership of trained volunteers.

Duke Johnson moves on from agent as stalemate with Browns continues

first_img Jarvis Landry returns to field, works out with Baker Mayfield, other Browns The Browns confirmed that they aren’t trying to trade Johnson at this point, especially since Hunt will be sidelined for the first half of the season.“Duke’s under contract,’’ coach Freddie Kitchens said at minicamp. “He’s on our football team. He’s a professional. He knows how to handle things. Whatever emotional side of the game it is, he knows how to check that at the door and do his job and do his job well. That’s what we expect out of Duke, and that’s what Duke will give us.”Johnson has said there is nothing the team can do to mend their relationship, however, he has attended mandatory Browns workouts during the offseason. “I am very proud that we were able to secure him a lucrative extension during our time with him,’’ she said. “We wish him the best.’’In June 2018, Johnson signed a three-year, $15.6 million deal with the Browns. He is under contract through the 2021 season.

His request for a trade intensified once the team signed Kareem Hunt, even though Hunt will be ineligible to play the first eight games of the season because of his suspension for violating the league’s domestic violence policy.Quarterback Baker Mayfield criticized Johnson and said the damage to the relationship between the running back and the team was on Johnson, which further deepened the divide between Johnson and the Browns.“I only want to be somewhere I’m wanted,’’ Johnson said after Mayfield publicly criticized him. “At the end of the day, that’s all this is about, being somewhere you’re wanted. In my case, the moment I’m not wanted anymore, I think it’s best that we find a middle ground and we do what’s best for the team.

Sharda Ugra to cover ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 for India Today

About the practice facilities, political turmoil, crime rates, logistics, the time taken to get a pizza served in Barbados.What was puzzling was hearing Indian voices in that chorus. Since when did we become super-efficient, clockwork First Worlders and lose our tolerance for chaos?Let’s see how charitable you are when your bags go missing; some will huff and that is valid. But to condemn an event merely because it’s being held somewhere other than factory floor at BMW or Sony, is churlish. It’s just like dissing a subcontinental World Cup on grounds of potholes and remember how mad that makes us.A friend in Melbourne writes that the “revolutionary pool” to be set up in the Rod Laver arena, which usually hosts the Australian Open tennis, has sprung a leak. Besides, ticket sales are sluggish. So what, let’s not give the event a chance and trash it quickly before someone else does?Of course, the West Indies will have surely ensured that wickets and practice facilities are good for the teams, spectators get the seats they have paid for and media’s phone lines are working. They don’t have to be South Africa 2003 because they are not South Africans and they shouldn’t even try to replicate England’s attempted 1999 “carnival”.In any case, the ICC’s events are fast becoming standardised products. All World Cup or a Champions Trophy grounds look almost the same, decked out in identical colours. The good folk in the Caribbean have given up their alcohol-and the right to carry large flags-to matches to stage this Cup. Hopefully, there will be no ban on music or fun and the West Indies will show us how to break free of the McDonaldisation of the World Cup.advertisementOther than worshipping the god of profit, the purpose of a World Cup is to showcase the best and have a sport engage as many different cultures as possible, so that it can eventually call itself truly ‘global’, and not an elitist pursuit. Given that the cost of hosting these mega sports events is now so stratospheric (no opening ceremony is complete without a godzillion dollars worth of fireworks going up in smoke), smaller countries have to really stretch themselves to invite the world in. Let’s not be obnoxious, let’s instead be guests worthy of the invitation and the hospitality.last_img read more

Kerry presses Irans FM to reach nuke deal outline

first_imgUS Secretary of State John Kerry pressed Iran’s foreign minister on the Obama administration’s desire to reach the outline of a nuclear deal by the end of March, in keeping with a target set by negotiators last year.Kerry delivered the message to Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif during a two-hour meeting on the sidelines of an international security conference in Munich, according to a US official. Kerry “reiterated our desire to move toward a political framework by the end of March,” the official said. “They agreed to stay in close touch and that they would try to meet again soon.” The official was not authorized to discuss the meeting publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. Also Read – Pro-Govt supporters rally as Hong Kong’s divisions deepenThe five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany will resume negotiations with Iran soon, with an eye on the March target they set in November after missing two earlier deadlines.Their ultimate goal is to reach a final agreement by July that would, in exchange for a lifting of sanctions, address international concerns that Iran may be using a civilian atomic energy program as cover to try to develop nuclear weapons.Despite assurances from the administration that it will not accept any deal with Iran that allows the capability to construct a bomb, the prospect of an agreement that may only keep Iran on the threshold of such a step has alarmed many allies, including Israel and the Gulf Arab states, along with many in Congress.Meeting later with foreign ministers and senior officials from the Gulf Cooperation Council Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates Kerry pledged anew that “no deal is better that a bad deal,” according to senior US officials who attended the session.last_img read more

Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The pledge, ‘sharing a glass of water’ on March 12 is a good way to remind us that kidneys are vital organs and that they should be taken care of.Taking steps to live a healthy lifestyle clearly helps to reduce risk, and early detection and treatment can slow or prevent the progression of kidney disease.With 10% of the population worldwide having some form of kidney damage, there is a long road ahead to raise awareness about the dangers of kidney disease. Some communities in both higher and lower income countries are at greater risk than others because of their ethnic origin, socioeconomic status and/or where they live. India at present has the world’s largest population of diabetes and obesity; both have been recognized as an emerging epidemic. Every fifth person in India is hypertensive. All these are risk factors contributing to the Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), which is predicted to increase by 17% over the next decade; and is now recognized by WHO and other organizations as a global public health issue.The Organising Chairperson, Prof Dipankar Bhowmik told there are several easy ways to reduce the risk of developing kidney disease. Keep fit and active, Keep regular control of your blood sugar level, Monitor your blood pressure, Eat healthy and keep your weight in check, Maintain a healthy fluid intake, do not smoke and do not take over-the-counter pills on a regular basis.last_img read more
