It was our privilege to be part of the community and we thank you for being our loyal guests for the past 37 years,” the post said.“This place is a landmark restaurant. We’ve been here forever and we have a very loyal following, a lot of very sad customers that we’re going to be shutting down,” General Manager Ed Mysolveckhad said then.Beckham was set up in 1978 and has been serving prime rib and other mostly English fare and drinks to happy customers since then. It was originally called Beckham place and was named Beckham Grill in 1999.Recently, Greystar Development acquired the site previously occupied by the Pasadena Athletic Club and Beckham Grill. They plan to build about 200 apartment units with 10,000 square feet of ground floor retail, now in the final stages of design review.As to what happens to the good old English-style pub that is Beckham, the owners, David and Hank Yost, plan to remodel what is currently Shakers Family Restaurant in Glendale with a brand new upscale and trendy concept.“We hope to serve some of the same type of Beckham Grill meals there. It’s a 10-minute drive from here at Central Avenue,” Mysolveck said. They hope to have the bar and 180 seat restaurant remodeled by January.The symbolic English taxicab and red phone booth out front at 25 West Walnut Street have long welcomed visitors into the cozy rooms of the English-style pub. Now, those and all the charming furnishings and memorabilia inside the pub will be up for sale.

A group of drug traffickers decided to exploit the Christmas spirit and hid a shipment of cocaine among toys and candy to be donated to poor children in Nicaragua. The drugs were seized during Christmas week at an inspection post on the border with Costa Rica, the Nicaraguan police said. “It was a donation that was being sent to Nicaraguan children. There are no links between the people shipping the drugs and the people who sent the donation,” said Esteban Guido, a senior commissioner in the Nicaraguan national police. The drugs, 334 kilos of cocaine hidden among 50 bags of candy and 250 bags of toys, were being transported in two trucks with Guatemalan and Nicaraguan license plates. “We’ve spoken with the Costa Rican authorities, and they’ve cooperated with us. The drugs are linked to wholesale dealers in Costa Rica,” he explained. For years, Central America has been a transit route for South American cocaine, but the powerful Mexican cartels have recently increased their presence in the region in response to the military campaign they are facing in their own country. According to analysts, Mexican cartels are buying land, warehousing drugs and weapons, and contracting Nicaraguan gang members to sell narcotics. Guido said that the case is still under investigation and has not been linked to any particular cartel. By Dialogo December 29, 2010
Facebook160Tweet0Pin0Submitted by United State Department of TransportationThe U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration (FTA) today announced a $6.9 million grant award to Intercity Transit in Olympia, Washington, as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, signed by President Donald J. Trump on March 27, 2020. Intercity Transit will use the grant funds for operating assistance, paratransit service, preventive maintenance, project administration, security services and security equipment in order to respond to and recover from the COVID-19 public health emergency. See FTA’s apportionment tables for the totals apportioned to each area. (This funding is based on the agency’s current request and may not represent the full amount the agency will receive.)“This historic $25 billion in grant funding will ensure our nation’s public transportation systems can continue to provide services to the millions of Americans who continue to depend on them,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao.“We know that many of our nation’s public transportation systems are facing extraordinary challenges and these funds will go a long way to assisting our transit industry partners in battling COVID-19,” said FTA Acting Administrator K. Jane Williams. “These federal funds will support operating assistance to transit agencies of all sizes providing essential travel and supporting transit workers across the country who are unable to work because of the public health emergency.”In addition to the CARES Act funding, FTA issued a Safety Advisory that prompts transit agencies to develop and implement policies and procedures regarding face coverings and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), cleaning and disinfection of frequently touched surfaces, physical separation, and hand hygiene consistent with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidance. CARES Act funding can be used to cover 100 percent of these costs.
29 August 2011Global communications and IT services group BT is expanding its infrastructure investment in South Africa with the opening of an international network traffic routing facility at Melkbosstrand in the Western Cape.The facility will enable the company to strengthen its position as a leading provider of networked IT services and also gain better control of its local infrastructure and improve services to enterprises with a presence in South Africa.“The new infrastructure is of particular importance for the development of the regional and national economy,” the company said in a statement last week. “For example, Cape Town has established itself as a major global hub for call centres and is set to benefit greatly as BT introduces new services and solutions aimed at call centre operators.”BT operates one of the world’s largest global internet protocol-based networks, which underpins mission-critical applications for leading global enterprises from a variety of industry sectors, including financial services, manufacturing, logistics, pharmaceutical and oil and gas industries.Vendor neutral co-locationThe new routing facility will be linked to Teraco, a vendor neutral co-location site in Cape Town, through which other operators and customers will connect directly onto the BT network.Connectivity between the routing facility and Teraco will be provided by Dark Fibre Africa (DFA), an independent fibre network provider with 600km of fibre network in Cape Town and the surrounding areas.In 2009, BT was awarded individual Electronic Communications Services (i-ECS) and Electronic Communication Network Services (i-ECNS) licences from the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa.“Recent changes in the South African telecommunications regulatory environment have provided local and global telco providers with an opportunity to lower costs of connectivity and improve service levels offered to their customers,” BT said.BT is one of the world’s leading providers of communications services and solutions, serving customers in more than 170 countries. British Telecommunications (BT) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of BT Group and encompasses virtually all businesses and assets of the BT Group.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Advanced Foreground TransitionIf I really want some versatility, I can mask both edges of my foreground object, completely isolating it from the background. Once it’s isolated, I can now bring it up to track 3. This will give me more precision when timing the transition, as I’ll be able to adjust both the wide and close-up shots on tracks 1 and 2. I could even export this with an alpha and reuse it on future projects.So there you have it — a smooth foreground transition. Now I can use this technique to smoothly bring my viewers into a new location, change the composition of my shot, compress time, or just avoid an unnecessary jump cut.Interested in the tracks we used to make this video?“Success Story” by Vincent Tone“Aesthetics Trap” by CymatixLooking for more video tutorials? Check these out.How to Export with Transparency from Adobe After EffectsHow to Properly Pancake Timelines in Adobe Premiere ProVideo Tutorial: Determining The Best Lens for Your ProjectTutorial: Removing Audio Pops and Recording Audio DifferentlyHow to Change the Color of Exterior Lights in After Effects Step 1 — Capture the Foreground Object ShotNaturally, a transition occurs between two shots. In this example, I’m going to transition between a wide and close-up shot of my subject sitting on a bench. First, I’ll capture the wide shot. At the end of the shot, I’ll walk in front of the camera, making sure that the frame is covered from top to bottom by my body. Next, I’ll grab the second shot of my subject sitting on the bench — this time as a close-up shot.Step 2 — Layer the ShotsNow that I’ve captured my two shots, I’ll bring them into my NLE. I’m using Adobe Premiere Pro for this tutorial, but you can pull off this technique in many other popular NLEs. All you need is a mask that is keyframable.Now I want to transition from the wide shot to the close-up, so I’ll stack the two clips on my timeline, with the wide shot on video track 2 and the close-up on track 1. With my shots in place, I’m ready to bring this effect to life.Step 3 — Animate a MaskYou create this transition by masking the top layer to reveal the footage underneath. The key is to mask the edge of the foreground object (me) as it moves across screen, adding keyframes to the Mask Path as you go along. To make sure your composite looks good, adjust the Mask Feather. Feathering can be especially helpful when your foreground object has a lot of motion blur. You’ll most likely need to change position of each clip to time the transition perfectly. By adding in a foreground transition, you can make smoother edits and add some interesting dynamism to your video project.The foreground transition is a simple technique that can help you move between shots, scenes, and locations. If you execute the transition properly, viewers won’t even notice it. This method is a great alternative to straight cuts, and it gives editors another way to immerse viewers in a story. (The foreground transition can also help avoid the pesky jump cut.)Let’s take a look at how to create a foreground transition in just a few simple steps.
You won’t work for “the company,” keep a low profile, work for 47 years, and collect the gold watch. Whether you work inside a big company or hang up your own shingle, you are going to have to make your own way. The idea your parents and grandparents thought was safe is now the risky advice you will ever hear.The greatest investment you will ever make is the investment you make in yourself. College might be part of that investment, but isn’t going to result in you making a lot of money when you graduate. You don’t want to leave school with debt. Work your way through school. Get someone else to pay for your advanced degree while you learn enough about the business (or whatever) to be truly valuable when you leave. Invest as much as you can in your personal development.Your income and your success are directionally proportional to the difference you make for others. The greater the difference, the greater the success.The limit of both your income and your success are the limits of your vision of yourself and of your imagination. You need to develop a giant vision and you need to dream big. Then you need to stay awake and make your vision and your dreams real.Most of the jobs you see now won’t be around in the future. The only jobs that are going to pay well are going to be the jobs you create for yourself. The primary attribute you are are going to need for these jobs is creativity. That very same creativity the educational system has tried to grind out of you.Your ability to get things done is your ability to build a network. The more people you know and the more people who know you for the value you create, the greater your success. You are not going to succeed as a solo act. You need a tribe.Your success and your income is going to be in large measure determined by your ability to sell well. You think that sales is a bad word. You’ve grown up in an era where too many believe it is impolite to make an “ask.” Your ability to get things done will be measured by your ability to sell. This is nothing new.Real success is built on character. There has never been a time when the currency of trust was more valuable. This will only grow in importance. You need to walk your talk.You are a brand. If you don’t want to be a brand, you are still a brand, just a weak one. You need to be known for the value that you create. You need a recognizable profile. You need to be easily found and you need attention.You are going to measure your success by the contribution you make. You are going to measure yourself by the impact you have had on other people’s lives. You are going to value the experiences you have had, and you are going to value meaning above all else.The rule is you are going to have to make your own rules.

A passion Karun Chandhok inherited in his early days as he saw his father Vicky, also a professional racer in the 1980s, compete and a passion that led him to win the Formula Asia championship in 2001 when he was just 17. Eight years later, he is raring to go and is part of the Hispanic Racing F1 team for 2010 where he will partner the Brazilian Bruno Senna.The Journey Being crowned the Asian Formula Renault V6 champion in 2006, with seven wins and nine pole positions, over the next three seasons. He competed in the Grand Prix 2 (GP2) series in 2007-08, winning a race in each year. Finishing 18th in the GP2 standings, after clinching the third place at the British event, Chandhok is one of the world’s most promising speedsters.The Mission “It’s been the same since I was three years old, to win the Grand Prix for India,” he says.The Challenge Lack of financial support. “There’s money only for cricket and cricketers. There is no support for any other sport or sportsperson in our country. We neither have the infrastructure nor the funding,” says a disgruntled Chandhok. But he hopes the situation will change once the F1 track in Greater Noida becomes operational next year.The Mentor His father, as he grew up watching him race. But besides him, it is his team that mentors him he says, as they teach him how to walk the fine line between being professional and commercially viable by structuring his life.advertisementby Gunjeet Sra
Vatsala Kaul Banerjee is the editorial director of Children’s & Reference Books, Hatchette India. She has also had stints in advertising and print and is a mother of two – here she talks about how dealing with one’s child’s setbacks is more about fixing oneself than her.You know this prayer:”God, give us grace to acceptwith serenity,The things that cannot bechanged,Courage to change the thingswhich should be changed,And the wisdom to distinguishone from the other…”I didn’t think of this, Reinhold Niebuhr did, and he would’ve made a good mother. After 10 years of seesaw parenting – sometimes up, sometimes down, and sometimes middling – I can say with certainty that dealing with your child’s setbacks is more about fixing yourself than your child… Or it should be.Let’s start with an easy quiz. Tick the ones you think are your child’s setbacks:Poor marksWearing glassesPhysical or behavioural handicapNot being an eager performerThe ones you tick (or don’t) will help you figure out what kind of parent you are. If you ticked all five, I’d say that you have very high, probably unrealistic, expectations from your child. If you ticked one, then I’d say you’re likely to be a happy parent who allows her child his/her imperfections and weaknesses. And if you ticked two-three options, you’d be able to deal well with most of your child’s setbacks.I come of a mother who never let me think that losing vision in one eye at the age of two, and being faced with the prospect of going blind, and then having an extremely ugly squint till I was a teenager, was a “setback”. She didn’t go about it in a feature story “How I went about raising my daughter’s self-esteem” type of way; she just treated me normally and I learned to deal with it. Later, when the squint was fixed, but never quite completely, boyfriends would tell me how beautiful my eyes were, and I never doubted it. It’s all about perception, isn’t it?advertisementSo, when one of my daughters needed glasses at the age of five, sure I was concerned, but more about how she would deal with sports until she was old enough for lenses, and not that she had glasses “already!”. She also hated being on stage – her young, tattooed guitar teacher said it was cool that she didn’t want to learn songs to perform and would rather learn the chords first. It’s strange that I birthed a shy child, but there’s no one quite like her, and that’s fine with me. But of course, when she does badly in tests, I get upset because she knew everything – I’m human, after all, and I give her all the spiel about “doing your best”. And, of course, I hurt when her best friend suddenly decides to dump her at the behest of her mother, because I know my little girl is bewildered by this sudden and cruel change of heart, and I sit down and explain why some people can suddenly go off colour. It’s all part of the life deal. It’s going to happen a lot. Do the run up, hop, step and jump over it.What I would think could be serious setbacks in my children:If they didn’t giggle uncontrollably at nothing at all.If they did not think that 16-yearold Justin Bieber is the best singer in the world.If they did not want to learn new things in life.If they had only one friend.If they thought I know everything better than they do.If they thought everything can be found on/solved by the Internet.If they didn’t still make handmade cards for birthdays.If they didn’t run to get the first rights to hold the maid’s little baby.If they blame things that go wrong on other people all the time.If they say “That’s your problem!” or “So what can I do?”.I know what’s the right thing to do, and I try to get there, sometimes slip-sliding away, sometimes getting there. Every parent has to set the measures for their children – and themselves. Love is more important than anything else, and how to fix a problem and get over a disappointment is the key to waking up smiling next morning, ready to kiss life with a loud smack – and your children, too!Here are my ways of smiling when my children suffer a setback:Read to them or have them read stories of disappointments and achievements. No great person ever became that without both.advertisementHow can you explain the situation to your child so that he doesn’t think it’s a matter of life and death? Figure this out. We’re so involved in making our children smart, that we forget that they are still small and vulnerable.Don’t refuse help and advice, but don’t get pressurised by other parents. Their lives are different; their children are different, and their values may be entirely different, too. Live by yours.Don’t let other people treat your child with pity or sympathy. Tell them politely, and if they don’t get it, talk plain. Get the point across firmly.Accept the situation. Re-align priorities. What’s more important? That your child does something and be unhappy, or not do it and be happy?Think back to your childhood when making decisions for your child.Don’t be ashamed of your child’s weaknesses. Only if you know what’s wrong, you can decide if you want to make it better – and how.Show love. Hug, kiss and say it’s going to be all right; and if it isn’t going to be all right, it’s still all right – we’ll find another way, tomorrow is another day.Hows to tackle discipline and foodPriya Shirali, mother of two, is a writer. She believes that children should be given roots to keep them emotionally grounded and strong, and wings to let them soar. She tells us how she disciplines her children and makes them eat right?The best piece of advice I received as a young mother was this: when your baby is 4-5 months old, introduce her to all the possible tastes by giving her a small amount of curd, orange juice, honey, vinegar and so on. I did that with my daughter and realised that she was far more accepting of assorted tastes than most babies, who like only sweet food. Today, as a healthy 10-year-old, she eats baigan ka bharta as happily as French fries. My son, who I didn’t introduce to all the tastes at that age, is a fuss pot. I have to constantly think up ways to get him to eat his vegetables. So, I boil and grind or grate vegetables such as spinach and carrots, mash them and add them to the flour to make parathas. His disinterest in vegetables also prompts me to add ladyfinger and potatoes to mutton – sometimes I even cook rice in vegetable stock.As a family, we eat a balanced diet, and since children adopt food habits from their immediate family, my children do eat healthy. Salad, curd, fruits and healthy munchies, such as roasted wheat, are a regular part of our food. Having said that, I also give them a rather free hand when it comes to junk food – they eat wafers, and we eat out once every week, often at a restaurant of their choice. Unlike some health-fixated families, we do not resist “the Clown, the King and the Colonel” of the American fastfood empire.advertisementThe trick is to balance things out over a week. Don’t try and make every meal healthy. And don’t make eating healthy an oppressive thing. Food should be enjoyed and eaten happily for it to nourish the body. Otherwise, you could eat the most nutritious diet and still not benefit from it.When it comes to disciplining my children, I follow the “be loving, be polite, be firm” maxim. Today, parents often abdicate their parental responsibility to be their child’s friend, but I don’t believe in that. My child will have many friends in life, but only one mother. So I am friendly, but I have certain rules about behaviour, bedtime, TV and computer time, all of which have been set after a discussion with the children and keeping in mind what is best for them. But once we have decided on something, we follow it. Of course, the rules are not set in stone, and are changed as they grow older.How to tackle adolescence Minakshi S Desai, born in Nairobi, Kenya, is an interior designer and a freelance writer. She dabbles in craft, painting and pottery and loves animals. She is the mother of a teenager and tells us how to adjust with stubborn, adolescent behaviour?Like most mothers, I was obsessed with numbers and percentages. And like most 15-year-olds, my daughter Romi hated studies. Studying through the night before the exams with almost the entire syllabus to be finished was a routine affair.My temper and her stubbornness raged on neck and neck, her stubbornness winning hands down. At the end of my tether, I visited the school counsellor for help. At my sanctimonious best, I described my daughter’s behaviour, confident that the counselor would set her straight and peace would once again reign in a home that had become a bedlam. I was dumbstruck when the counsellor gave Romi a clean chit and suggested that I take a few sessions of therapy instead! To say that I was affronted is an understatement; more so because Romi was finding it hard to control her smirk.It took some doing, but I finally dragged my feet back to the counsellor. Just two sessions of therapy changed my perspective on the situation and the results were noticeable immediately. I continued with the sessions, egged on by the changes I perceived in my daughter who looked happy and relaxed. A few weeks down the line, Romi’s grades improved and though she still had to be coaxed to study, she didn’t put up much of a fight.I learnt the hard way that I was unconsciously transferring my insecurity and fear of failure onto her. I also learnt that studying more didn’t necessarily mean better marks; it could be counterproductive too! We started working as a team rather than adversaries. The time tables and charts were pasted on her cupboard. She thrived under my positive feedback and passed her ICSE exams with 85 percent; and later, her ISC with 81 percent. Today, at 18, she is a bubbly teenager, preparing for college.Help your child with studies:Set a workable time table as it helps organise your child. Induce them to stick to the plan by showing appreciation when they follow it.A 30-minute break every two hours of studying makes the child more productive.There is no need to cut the cable connection. A bit of TV viewing is just the thing your child needs when she is taking a break.The most important thing to remember is that the world isn’t going to end if your child doesn’t score well in exams.Every child who scores 90 percent in school may not be successful in life and a child who scores badly is not a failure in life.Be the change you want, and everything else that you want to change will fall into place.Parents are like tugboats; they guide the ship (or their child) into the harbour for safe anchorage.How to tackle weight “issues”Vandana Malhotra is a Delhi-based writer. Mother to an eight-year-old, she tells us how to keep an underweight child active and energeticOne of the most common complaints among Indian mothers is that their child is a fussy, picky eater who simply does not pack in enough nourishment. As I have learnt from experience, most of such talk is sheer bunkum because when you look at the child, you find that she looks perfectly healthy. When such talk gets too much, I simply point at my daughter to shut them up. At an energetic eight years, my daughter Urja only weighs 15kg. Rather shocking when you state it baldly like that, but true. Not only is she fussy about what she eats, quantity is a problem too. If I can get her to eat one chapatti at a meal with just about a half portion each of dal, veggies and dahi, I consider it an achievement.That Urja is a slow gainer became apparent at about three years of age. Though her height and head circumference were well within the average range, her weight just didn’t keep up. Her paediatrician ran a slew of tests to determine if she had any underlying chronic disorder. These included simple blood, stool and urine checks to rule out anaemia, thalassemia, thyroid, mal-absorption of nutrients and even loss of proteins through urine. Thankfully, all the tests turned out negative and she didn’t suffer from lactose or gluten intolerance either.Experts today agree that the growth potential and the growth rate of children are programmed in their DNA. Since both my husband and I were thin as children, Urja, in all probability, takes after us. The genetic factor is compounded by the fact that she’s a small eater whose calorie intake is lower than it should be. But our paediatrician assures us that as long as Urja is healthy and active, her weight should not worry us unduly. Artificial fat and protein supplements for weight gain are a big no-no as the first can affect the heart adversely and the latter, the kidneys. We’ve simply been advised to wait till Urja hits puberty, the next growth spurt.In the meantime, our job is to make Urja eat calorie-and-energy-dense food, such as cheese, pasta, nuts, dry fruit and lots of icecream. She doesn’t cooperate much but instead of forcing food down her throat and putting her back up, we simply let her eat the amount she’s comfortable with. I generally go with the smaller meals and frequent snacks formula. As my sister-in-law, an obstetrician, observes, it’s a whole lot easier for parents to encourage their child to eat than to say no if they’re growing obese.If your child is underweight, her diet should include this:Whole cream milk, fruit shakes and icecream.Energy and calorie-rich fruits such as coconut, mango and banana.Dense carbohydrates such as wheat, rice and corn.Cheese and butter.Eggs, beans and legumes for protein.Dry fruits.

Louisville just finished its regular season with a 59-57 victory over No. 2 Virginia at the KFC Yum! Center. What made the Cards’ victory so remarkable was just how they got it done.After Virginia’s Malcolm Brogdon put the Cavs up 57-56 on a three-pointer with 16 seconds to play, Louisville had a chance to win it. The Cavaliers doubled UL point guard Terry Rozier off of a pick-and-roll, leaving big man Mangok Mathiang wide-open. Since January 31st, Mathiang had made just one of 16 field goal attempts. He had not attempted a shot in 14 minutes today. Naturally, he swished the foul line jumper off Rozier’s feed like it was second nature.Virginia’s foul-court inbounds pass landed out of bounds, and Rozier finished things off with a free throw. Louisville’s win clinched the No. 4 seed in the upcoming ACC Tournament, and a coveted double-bye into the quarterfinals.All thanks to the 6-foot-10 sophomore from Australia who found his way into the scoring column at the most opportune time.
