Los Angeles Late Summer Produce Guide « CBS Los Angeles

(credit: Santa Monica Famers Market) I'm surprised no one walked out of Milo & Otis, because we were doing something very difficult. As an adult film it has no credibility whatsoever; I apparently traumatized people for showing them this cute cat and dog movie. But still, nobody walked out." The salon has drawn as few as three people in an evening and as many as twenty. "I'm more surprised at who doesn't come than who does," says Flores. Congregants of the salon range from the mid-20s to 50s and are predominantly white and middle class. Though gender is balanced, Flores hopes to draw more minorities to the Attorney in French Valley Attorney discussions. "Especially when I show films that would be better served with a mixed crowd. The conversations suffer for lack of diversity." Flores looks for films that are "newer or completely off the map of the distribution system." He laments the fact that "we don't see any films from the largest film industry in the world [Hollywood]," and wonders, "How is it that in Southern California we get no Mexican cinema at all? I probably wouldn't be able to do this right now if it wasn't for the Internet." Flores has made a rule for himself: He will not show two Asian films in a row. "All the interesting cinema in the world is happening in a few Asian countries right now. But people have told me, 'Stop showing Asian movies every time.' So every other week I get away from the entire continent to keep it mixed up." The most recent film Flores shared with his group was The Valley Obscured By Clouds, a French film made by a German filmmaker in 1972.

Rain, Rain, Go Away | Valley News

Alice Furstenburg, 3, of Lyme, waits out a brief downpour by eating ice cream on the porch of the Lyme Country Store in Lyme, N.H., on July 7, 2014. 
(Valley News - Sarah Priestap) While the menu rightly lacks the gastronomic ambition of Rogan's other restaurant in the Midland, the French, the food is no less enjoyable. I'd go further and say I prefer it, really. Dizzying Reading It is accessible and it is fun. Mr Cooper's is dedicated to giving pleasure rather than to receiving awards. The dishes, more balanced in themselves than I am, make dizzying reading: Duck caramelized with molasses sugar, sweet potato, curry leaf and raita; or Cumbrian rib steak, truffle pudding and purple potato latkes. Halibut is served on a gratin of peas and edamame, with tarragon and pistachios.

Even though Los Angeles is urban through and through, this city has both farmers markets organized by the Southland Farmers Market Association, as well as stands hosted by the farmers themselves. Shoppers will find everything from heirloom tomatoes, peaches and late summer squashes to verdolaga, sapote and sudachi. That being said, here are the five best markets for late summer produce in L.A.

That is the only way to finish the Z. There are also signs of these vigilantes spreading to other towns near the US border. In the Tamaulipas state capital Ciudad Victoria, a leaflet recently appeared from a vigilante group calling itself the Alberto Carrera Torres brigade promising to fight the Zetas. Federal prosecutors have accused some vigilantes across Mexico of being backed by drug cartels to fight rival gangs. The Pedro Mendez may be receiving weapons to fight the Zetas from that gangs enemies in the Gulf Cartel, Guerrero says. But the mayor insists the vigilantes are authentic in defending their community. While Guerrero says the vigilantes have reduced crime, he says he is not himself a militia member. The government of President Enrique Pena Nieto has led a shifting and seemingly confused policy on Mexicos vigilante movement.

See The Trailer For The New Daft Punk Movie | Mixmag

It seemed at the time that with up to a single kid SV was more interesting money-wise, but with 2 kids France became more attractive again. As an inexperienced foreigner I may have missed some cost factor for SV, and the sky-rocketing cost of education in the US may give a different result today. In the end I came back to France for reasons unrelated to money: there's just no place like home ;) chvid 15 hours ago | link Wrt 1. Are the numbers in the article not before taxes (including the income tax withheld by the employer)? In general the cost of living in United States is lower than in Europe. Not higher. Even when you compare the hotspots (like New York to London). vidarh 15 hours ago | link Almost every European country have payroll taxes, sometimes going up into the 15%-20% range, and those are rarely counted as part of income (the exception tends to be libertarians on an anti-tax crusade...). Withheld income tax is a different matter - that would definitively be counted. However California has a state payroll tax that isn't much out of line with many European countries, so I don't that part affects the salary difference that much (I've not bothered to look up what the French payroll tax rates are). Note that based on those numbers Paris is "cheap" when compared even to "nearby" European cities like London. nolite 9 hours ago | link >> For that kind of quality, I would have easily paid something like $5000 or more in the States. like $50000 or more in the States.

The film portrays the rise of electronic music in France featuring a fictionalised version of Daft Punk . Sven Love, a French DJ and brother of director Mia Hansen-Lve, confirmed that Daft Punk were integral in the film going ahead. "Daft Punk have read the script and agreed to help us. We hear three of their songs in the film; without their consent, the project could not succeed." The films soundtrack contains music from the French duo as well as Frankie Knuckles, Terry Hunter and MK. Watch the trailer below.

An 18th-century Relic Returned To Museum - Military History - Stripes

Parade has special meaning for local veterans - TriCities.com: News

BHC 070514 July 4th 3.jpg Powder horns, generally made from cow, ox or buffalo horn, were containers for gunpowder, which could be dispensed from the narrow end, while the soldier could refill through the wider opening. He realized what it was and kept it. As he grew up, Mr. Richardson developed a deep interest in military history, particularly regarding the French and Indian War. At 16, he helped excavate Fort William Henry, a British fort in New York best known as the focal point of the classic 1826 historical novel "The Last of the Mohicans" by James Fenimore Cooper. As Mr. Richardson progressed in his career as an anthropologist, he also built a collection http://www.cortrightlaw.com/local-french-valley-attorney-offices of military and historic artifacts.

The DAV brought several vehicles for the parade, including a World War I-era train car and a 5-ton military vehicle. The train car, Freeman said, would carry up to 40 soldiers to prison camps. The French government donated one train car to each state. The car was given to the local DAV chapter. It is wonderful being here today, Cox said. Its beautiful. The local DAV meets at a cabin on Carden Hollow Road. The organization hopes to obtain a grant to build a new meeting room, Freeman said. The local DAV was not the only veterans organization present for Independence Day festivities.

'Our marker of our place': Rimrocks linked to Billings' identity from the start

A New Arrival Inc. The type of rock that makes up the Rimrocks also has an effect. Youre going to have layers of sandstone, which can be strong rock, and then layers of clay, or shale, thats more easily removed, Ward said. You may see a clay area worn away beneath the face of sandstone that produces this overhanging rock. Spiritual site If the life of the Rimrocks measures in millions of years, their interaction with humans represents a mere fraction of that span. There is symmetry between the Native population and those who followed, Kooistra said. At the east end of the Rims at what is now known as Swords Rimrock Park sits a place that Lt. James H. Bradley in April 1876 described as The Place of the Skulls, a Crow Indian burial ground.

But I didn't, and that's why this win has a special importance to me, mentally," Djokovic said. "I managed to not just win against my opponent, but win against myself, as well, and find that inner strength." Cradling his trophy during the post-match ceremony, Djokovic addressed Federer directly, saying: "I respect your career and everything you have done. And thank you for letting me win today." Even Federer had to smile at that line. Truth is, Djokovic deserved plenty of credit for figuring out a way to raise his Grand Slam total to seven titles and allows him to overtake Rafael Nadal at No. 1 in the rankings. "Novak deserved it at the end, clearly," said Federer, who hadn't been to a Grand Slam final since winning his 17th major at Wimbledon in 2012, "but it was extremely close." Federer, who turns 33 next month, won 88 of 89 service games through the semifinals and produced 29 aces in the final, but Djokovic broke him four times. Federer went to the net aggressively, only to see Djokovic zoom more than a dozen passing shots past him. And with most of the Centre Court crowd of about 15,000 raucously cheering for Federer, the 27-year-old Djokovic kept believing in himself. That part might have been the most difficult, given that Djokovic lost his past three major finals, and five of his past six, including against Andy Murray at Wimbledon last year, and against Nadal at the French Open last month. "Started doubting, of course, a little bit," Djokovic said. "I needed this win a lot." Boris Becker, the three-time Wimbledon champion who began coaching Djokovic this season, called the new champion "the biggest competitor" and praised "his sense of not giving up, giving it always another try." "It could've gone either way in the fifth set," said Becker, whose former rival as a player, Stefan Edberg, coaches Federer.

Hey, Tech Ceos! Save Silicon Valley, Hire A French Team ! | Denis Lafont-trevisan | Linkedin

We still have politicians who can't reengineer the country. But we can solve, build & deploy. Froggies don't break the Build ! Moreover, in the last 10 years Ive witnessed radical change in the French Tech culture. Ten years ago, the 15,000 software engineers graduating from read more... college every year were going to Fortune2000 or large system integrators. The culture focused on large information systems and the complexities of managing them. SEs were practising one or two languages, mostly high end, like Java or even LISP. We were lacking a bit of pragmatism, which is definitely no longer the case. The rise of startups, the spread of software engineering knowledge (Thanks Stack Overflow!), and agile/lean thinking have changed this bias.

FRENCH VALLEY: Keeping the past alive - Press Enterprise

But Giap, whose forces had suffered heavy casualties in attacks on French positions, decided to hold off. However, on 30 March the "battle of the five hills" started. One after another the strongholds Huguette, Dominique and Claudine were overrun, leaving only Eliane, another series of hillocks, to protect the base camp. The drama's final act unfolded around Eliane 2, where the French made their last, suicidal stand. The Vietnamese have focused much of their subsequent efforts to commemorate the battle on this spot. Apart from a new museum , which opened on 7 May, all one usually sees are plaques, few of which are translated into French or English. But at Eliane 2 visitors can view a fortified command post and the wreckage of a US M24 Chaffee tank, now set on a pedestal and protected by glass. Above all there are trenches that give some idea of how close the opposing forces were. In Hanoi another veteran, battalion commander Nguyen Dung Chi, told us his story in perfect French.

Battle against oblivion: the defeat that ended French colonial rule in Vietnam | World news | Guardian Weekly

Greater French Valley Attorney covers the roots of southwest Riverside County. The late McBurney, who was born in Hemet in 1928, was raised in the Auld Valley, Winchester and Fallbrook areas. He was a longtime member of the Temecula Valley Historical Society. The book would not have been done without Bills determination, abilities, finances and youthfulness, though in his 80s, and his loving heart for his work, said Milholland, 67. Sadly, he never held the book; he died suddenly after successful heart surgery (in 2009). Milholland attended the Alamos Schoolhouse, which served area students from 1900 to 1969. Her mom and grandfather, also former students, went on to become members of the Alamos School Board. The book came about when Bill and his wife, Alice, began attending our Alamos/Hyatt (schools) annual reunions at Lake Skinner, said Milholland, a 1965 Hemet High School graduate. He was very local history minded and attended Hyatt, another one-room schoolhouse, as a youngster. Milholland and her three siblings grew up on her grandparents large ranch between Auld and French Valley Attorney with French Valley Attorney Attorney parents Dean and Frances Nicolas Rice. Her grandfather, Marius Nicolas, was born in French Valley Attorney in 1894 and after marrying Mary Blackmore in 1914, dry farmed wheat and barley on the land. Her family bought the South Newport Ranch in 1934 and began raising cattle and other livestock. Mimi has quietly worked for years to tell others about the French Valley Attorney, Winchester and the high country of our local southwest. She is one of my favorite people, said Robert Lindquist who emceed the Heritage Picnic awards ceremony.

French Developers Can Earn Double In Silicon Valley | Hacker News

Women about 6 years longer in France, and 5 years longer in the USA. You get almost 2 years extra holiday over the working lifetime too. xinkr 14 hours ago | link Right. We definetly need a wider cost-benefit analysis. ownagefool 15 hours ago | link So in UK pay goes like this: Salaried Developer @ 40K 3,333.33 Gross 2,512.89 Net Contract Developer @ 350 per/day using a trust 7350 Gross 6027 Net Contract Developer @ 350 per/day using an umbrella 7350 Gross 4,333.68 Net Contract Developer @ 350 using Ltd 8820 Gross using flat-tax scheme You'll need an accountant to tell you what you can actually get net, if you have a wife that doesn't work it'll closer to a trust, if you don't, it'll be closer to an umbrella, but you can defer to bring it closer to the trust if you're patient. I'm not sure what people actually get paid in SV, but 350 is fairly low end, you can pull 600 a day in London which'll earn you $250,000 assuming you never take a holiday or are http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2014/08/26/ohio-attorney-general-appoints-special-prosecutor-to-investigate-wal-mart-shooting/ inbetween jobs, which isn't a good idea. P.S. The salaried developer probably costs the company more too. FYI you don't need to be in the UK to contract, I just don't know the tax structures elsewhere. BerislavLopac 12 hours ago | link According to http://www.listentotaxman.com/ the net income for 350/day is actually 4,993.48 if fully employed (i.e. an umbrella). ownagefool 11 hours ago | link Good catch. I used an umbrealls calculator. Umbrellas do have fees but the difference is probably the changing in tax-free allowance in recent years, I'd hope at least. Overarching point is though, you can earn SV wages in European countries, just not typically as a salaried employee.

Losing Ground: Southeast Louisiana Is Disappearing, Quickly - Scientific American

Researchers say the total number of miles dredged will never be known because many of those areas are now underwater. Gene Turner, a Louisiana State University professor who has spent years researching the impacts of the canals, said 10,000 miles would be a conservative estimate. Companies drilled and dredged all over the coast, perhaps nowhere more quickly than the area near Lafitte, which became known as the Texaco Canals . This fishing village 15 miles south of New Orleans had been named for the pirate who used these bayous to ferry contraband to the city. For years, the seafood, waterfowl and furbearers in the surrounding wetlands sustained the community. As New Orleans grew, Lafitte also became a favorite destination for weekend hunters and anglers. Today those scenes are only a memory.

25 Years In: Acquerello's Owners on Female Chefs, Changing Times, and the New Face of Italian Food in America - Yahoo News

IMG_3172-3427821824-O.jpg And we'll work around whatever we have. GP: Regionality was restrictive to our growth. I think there's only one truly authentic Italian restaurant in SF, and that's La Ciccia. It's very authentic to what you'd eat in Sardinia. But that menu doesn't change, and for our restaurant, we find that to be boring. We don't want to do the same thing over and over. SG: I'm not Italian, and I had always fought to establish my Italianness, in a sea of people who were born into it.

Congressman Patrick Meehan Observes Humanoid Robots In Garnet Valley Schools - Garnet Valley Press - Delco News Network

Get to Know French Valley Attorney Sheriff's Officials in Informal 'Coffee With A Cop' Setting - Police & Fire - Murrieta, CA Patch

The Congressman participated in speech activities and a health lesson with students who have autism. Not only teachers, but also students who are in the high school robotics program assisted with the lessons. In March, the district purchased five NAO Robots, and since implementing the educational applications teachers are utilizing the technology to support in-class tasks, facilitate communication, and help children with autism reach their goals. Overall, the district has witnessed the students increased engagement with the learning process. Andrea Michaels, autistic support teacher for district, has seen the benefits of the robots in her classroom. Many of the students in my room have extensive communication needs, and struggle to interact with peers and teachers, she said. The NAO robots provide them with the perfect opportunity to practice both speaking and listening skills. In addition to assisting the special education students, collaboration was formed with the gifted and talented high school students studying robotics, to individualize and customize programming for students with disabilities. Anthony Slata, Garnet Valley High School teacher and student Manoj Saripalli also attended. Slatas students have been learning to program the robots to meet the needs of the special education students. A variety of research studies have supported the use of the NAO robots in education.

Suspicious Package Prompts Evacuation at Courthouse Friday, June 13th, 2014 Issue 24, Volume 18. A "suspicious package" that was later discovered to contain a few miscellaneous items and some clothing prompted sheriffs officials to call the bomb squad out and evacuate the courthouse in French Valley Attorney on Thursday morning, June 12. According to Lt. Lori Marquette of the Riverside County Sheriffs Department, the package was sent to the French Valley Attorney Lawyer public defenders office at the Southwest Justice Center on Auld Road. The Hazardous Device Team was called out to inspect the package and with the approval of the presiding judge, officials decided to evacuate the building for the safety of the public and court employees at about 10:30 a.m. The evacuation order was lifted by early afternoon and the courthouse resumed normal operations at 1:30 p.m., Marquette said.

Suspicious Package Prompts Evacuation at Courthouse :: The Valley News

Posted by Renee Schiavone (Editor) , May 27, 2014 at 11:11 AM Next Previous Slideshow Download The following is a news release from the Riverside County Sheriff's Department: On Saturday, June 14th, 2014, from 8:00 am to 10:00 am, theRiverside Sheriffs Departments Southwest Station will host Coffee with a Cop . The event will be held at the Aromas Cafe, located at 29950 Hunter Rd #103 , in the city of Murrieta. Deputies from theSouthwest Station and French Valley Attorney community members will come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee. All members of the French Valley Attorney community are invited to attend. There is no agenda or formal speeches, just casual conversations about your community, with those who serve. Coffee with a Cop provides a unique opportunity for community members to ask questions and learn more about the departments work in the French Valley Attorney neighborhood. The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public happen during emergencies, or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community, and some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction. We hope that French Valley community members will feel comfortable to ask questions, bring concerns, or simply get to know our officers. These interactions are the foundation of community partnerships. Coffee with a Cop is a national initiative supported by the United States Department of Justice, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. Similar events are held across the county, state and country, as local police departments strive to make lasting connections with the communities they serve. This program aims to advance the practice of community policing through improving relationships between police officers and community members one cup of coffee at a time. Anyone with questions should contact Lt. Matthew Aveling at theSouthwest Station at (951)-696-3000.

CSCNO hopes to build new Valley-area elementary school

Joseph, a junior kindergarten to Grade 3 school also located in Val Therese, into a new school serving 350 students. RELATED ARTICLES CSCNO ponders closing schools, building new one The other option being considered is to combine Ste-Therese, St. Joseph and Ecole Notre-Dame a junior kindergarten to Grade 8 school located in Hanmer into a 600-student school. Because there isn't enough room to build a new school on two of the schools' sites, and it would be tight on the third, the board has come up with 11 potential sites in the area to build the new school. CSCNO chair Andre Bidal explains all three schools are around 50 years old, and are starting to show their age. Board estimates show the building will need a collective $25 million in repairs over the next 25 years. If you look at the cost of repair on these schools, if you project it over 25 years, the cost of repair ... will come up to about the same of building a new one, he said. Definitely it will be worth it. Parents have until Aug. 18 to comment on the plans on the CSCNO's website, www.nouvelon.ca.

Business Highlights - Yahoo News

___ Delta Air Lines cutting back flights to Venezuela CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- Delta Air Lines drastically reduced service to Venezuela on Monday in a dispute with the government over revenue trapped in the South American country. The move left disgruntled fliers scrambling to rebook seats on one of the dwindling number of carriers with full service to the socialist country. Delta is slashing service by 85 percent starting Aug. 1, replacing its daily roundtrip flight between Atlanta and Caracas with one roundtrip weekend flight, according to spokeswoman Sarah Lora. Lora declined to say how much money Delta has stuck in Venezuela. Airlines have been unable to convert their Venezuelan earnings into dollars because of the government's hold on repatriation of airline revenue. ___ Report: Homeowners paid $3.1B cash in settlement WASHINGTON (AP) -- A new report says homeowners have received about $3.1 billion in cash under a federal settlement with 13 big banks over alleged misconduct in processing mortgages that may have resulted in wrongful foreclosures. The report by the Federal Reserve released Monday says 83 percent of the 4.2 million borrowers covered by the January 2013 settlement, or about 3.4 million, had cashed checks as of April 25. The amounts paid range from several hundred dollars to $125,000. The 13 banks include Bank of America, Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo and Goldman Sachs. ___ China's premier says country's economy improving BEIJING (AP) -- China's economy improved in the latest quarter but faces "downward pressure," and Beijing will increase the strength of targeted policy measures to shore up growth, the country's premier said Monday. Speaking at a news conference with visiting German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Premier Li Keqiang gave no indication how fast the economy might have grown in the three months ending in June after expanding by 7.4 percent the previous quarter.

Four Year Old Lyla Hogan Reviews The French Laundry - Great Ideas : People.com

FOUR-YEAR-OLD REVIEWS THE FRENCH LAUNDRY Like that time 4-year-old Lyla Hogan had the herb-roasted Elysian fields farm lamb at the prestigious Attorney in French Valley Attorney French Laundry in Californias Napa Valley and said: This one isnt delicious. But, dont worry, her parents werent embarrassed beyond belief by their little cherubs scathing words about the dish prepared at a place Anthony Bourdain has called the best restaurant in the world . She was brought there by the website The Bold Italic to review a full tasting menu from her own adorable perspective and shes the youngest person ever to do so. Jessica Saia & Isla Murray With beautifully expressive photos taken by Isla Bell Murray, Lylas table to mouth experience is illustrated from the very beginning, when shes served an ice cream cone-shaped avocado cornet, to the very end, when a laundry list of irresistible goodies are placed before her (the best way to win a girls heart is with chocolate! Good move, chef.) Jessica Saia & Isla Murray Some of Lylas greatest hits include her thoughts on a handsomely prepared plate of white sturgeon caviar, which she immediately gives a thumbs-down without even trying. She curls her bottom lip and says: It looks really not good. And with each plate comes more zingers, like when shes served a petite green salad: This pepper tastes like babies. Wait, shes eaten baby? I just ate the legs and the feet, not the eyes or the mouth. Jessica Saia & Isla Murray Fortunately for the Laundrys chef and owner Thomas Keller, not all of little Lylas comments about the food are disparaging. The summer melon soup is to-die-for or in Lyla-speak: tastes like a Tinker Bell popsicle. Jessica Saia & Isla Murray And, for the record, the restaurants bread is completely AWESOME and Lyla could drink their ginger ale forever, and ever out of a champagne glass, preferably. This place is super fancy, remember. To see Lylas adorable review from beginning to end, click here . Amy Jamieson

Major AOC French Wine Regions and Loire Valley Wines

Wine makers belong to associations and organizations to help them control quality. There are 16 or 17 great vineyard areas. If you picture the hexagon, the northern and north western parts of France do not produce wine, but thats about all. Wines in France are not labelled by grape types but rather by where the grapes are from. In France people look for wines that come from a specific region. Most wines in France are a mix of two or three types of grapes. You want to look for the AOC label which means Appellation dOrigine Controlee, which means that an association of wine makers checked on the origins of this particular wine. They do not have to say what grapes they used to make the wine, the most expensive wines almost never do.
