Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Lilia Kavarian was never really interested in the world of politics. But nowadays, she finds herself knee-deep in it.The Pasadena City College alumna and current honors student at Cal State Los Angeles is serving as a Washington, D.C. intern for Rep. Jim Costa, a California Democrat who represents the 16th District. Kavarian was one of 23 Cal State University students nominated by their respective campus presidents to participate in the Panetta Institute’s prestigious Congressional Internship Program.Named after former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, the institute hosts students for the program every fall with an intensive, two-week course at its Monterey Bay, Calif. location. While there, students learn about a wide variety of political topics, including foreign and defense policy.Upon completion of the course, the interns are then shipped off to Capitol Hill, where they work for two-and-a-half months for a member of the California congressional delegation.“Before I got into the program, I wasn’t really into politics,” said Kavarian, a CSULA business major. “I was pretty nonpartisan. But now that I’ve been given a chance to see how government works from behind the scenes, it’s been a real eye-opener for me.”Kavarian got involved with the congressional program after being accepted into CSULA’s Honors College, which offers advanced interdisciplinary courses to participants. As one of only a few transfer students enrolled in the Honors College, Kavarian was recommended by the College’s director to apply for the D.C. internship.“I was really interested in business law and how it intersects with public policy,” said Kavarian, who holds three associate degrees from PCC: business administration, French, and humanities. “So it seemed like it would be a good fit. It turned out that it was.”In D.C., Kavarian drafts correspondence and conducts legislative research for Costa’s congressional office. She also attends legislative briefings and hearings on various policy issues.Although she admits disagreements on Capitol Hill are the norm, working with Costa – considered a “Blue Dog” Democrat for his willingness to jump party lines on fiscal issues – has been a refreshing experience.“It’s like a breath of fresh air seeing members of congress work with both sides,” Kavarian said.When she returns to CSULA, Kavarian plans on graduating next spring with a bachelor’s degree in business with an emphasis on pre-legal studies. She hopes to attend law school and become a judge.Kavarian, who carries a 3.8 GPA, credits much of her academic success to PCC. “I owe everything to PCC,” she said. “I love PCC so much. It gave me freedom to figure out what I wanted to do. I came into the college as a French major, but didn’t really see a career for me on that path. After taking a business law class at PCC, I knew that I wanted to pursue law.”Kavarian also said meeting Panetta, a fellow Californian, was inspiring. She sat next to him last month at a formal dinner gathering for the interns.“It was pretty cool,” she said. “He’s a very wise man and the amount of people he knows is crazy. He’s straight and to the point, but very friendly and approachable.”Kavarian said Panetta shared with her the story about the day Osama Bin Laden was killed in a raid by U.S. Navy SEALS in 2011. Panetta was head of the CIA at the time and watched the raid remotely from the agency’s headquarters in Langley, Va.“He talked a little about the situation room during that night,” she said. “Not much more, though. It’s classified.”Founded in 1997 by Leon and Sylvia Panetta, the Panetta Institute provides internships in the CSU system. The institute also provides study opportunities in government, politics and public policy, and sponsors a range of other programs. For more information, visit panettainstitute.org.

The increase matched October’s improvement and was slightly weaker than September’s 0.8 percent growth.Released monthly, the index gauges the potential for future economic growth based on 10 leading components, including homebuilding permits, weekly initial unemployment claims, and average consumer expectations for business conditions.”The increase in the LEI signals continued moderate growth through the winter season,” said Ken Goldstein, economist at The Conference Board. “The biggest challenge has been, and remains, more income growth. However, with labor market conditions tightening, we are seeing the first signs of wage growth starting to pick up.”The Conference Board’s two other economic indices—measuring current and lagging indicators—also improved last month. The coincident economic index, which includes payrolls and incomes, grew 0.4 percent to 110.7, while the lagging economic index climbed 0.3 percent to 125.4.”The current situation, measured by the coincident economic index, has been improving steadily, with employment and industrial production making the largest contributions in November,” said Ataman Ozyildirim, economist at The Conference Board.

first_img My grandmother didn’t do that. She said it wasn’t civilized.She spit in the tin can she kept in her pocketbook. She would unsnap the clamp on her purse, yawn it wide open, lean over and spit in the can, in her pocketbook real civilized-like.Amos, Eunice and Lizzy were snuff dippers and they lived in the tenant house right behind our house. Every afternoon, they would sit out on the front porch, dippin’ and spittin’. The spit bush was way out in the yard, but no matter where they sat on the porch, they could spit and hit it. That was an amazing thing.I was a pretty good spitter because I had a gap between my top, front teeth that acted like the sight on my BB gun. Mama said it wasn’t nice for little girls to spit. Boys spit all the time. Boys did all the fun things. That’s why I was always trying to kiss my elbow and turn myself into a boy. I was missing too much fun on account of being a girl.

They didn’t even look to see if anybody was standing under the window. They just hauled off and spit. Like a lot of women of my childhood, my grandmother dipped snuff.My granny said there wasn’t a thing in the world that couldn’t be made right with a dip of snuff.She would carefully take the lid off a can of Peach Sweet Snuff, tap just the right amount of the dark powder into the lid, pull out her lower lip and fill it full of snuff. Then she would tongue it into place, sit back, fold her arms and enjoy the dip.center_img Sponsored Content Email the author My best chance of spitting was to dip snuff because plain ol’ spitting was a sin. We learned in Sunday school that when Jesus was on the cross those mean people spit on him. That’s when God made plain spitting a sin.I couldn’t sneak snuff out of my grandmother’s pocketbook but Amos had cans sitting all around. Tince was always getting into trouble. Eunice said they had to be on their Ps and Qs when she came to their house. I guess they forgot about their Ps and Qs one afternoon because Tince slipped a whole can of Rooster Snuff in her dress pocket.I had my mind set on Peach Sweet Snuff, thinking it would taste like the sweet peaches from the trees along the fencerow. But Tince said all snuff tastes just like chocolate candy.We went out in the pasture where we could take a dip and then stretch and watch the clouds make pictures in the sky.Tince opened the can, tapped out a dip in the lid, pulled out her lip and filled it full. I tapped out a lid full, pulled out my bottom lip, filled it full and tongued it into place, just like my granny did.That day, I learned a hard lesson.Tince and I fell back on the grass but we couldn’t watch the floating clouds.

first_img Press Association The South African second row was dismissed for a high tackle on Connacht fly-half Jack Carty just 15 minutes into the game after Scottish referee Lloyd Linton looked at the big screen and consulted with his fellow officials. It may see Landman handed a ban which could be as long as eight weeks, potentially ruling him out of the Dragons’ big European Challenge Cup quarter-final Welsh derby with Cardiff Blues on April 4. It was part of an eventful match which saw Dragons wing Hallam Amos score two tries and centre Jack Dixon get one. Wing Tom Prydie added two penalties and converted two tries. Connacht went over for tries through centre Craig Ronaldson, number eight Eoghan Masterson and replacement second row Mick Kearney, with fly-half Carty kicking a penalty and two conversions, while full-back Darragh Leader added two penalties and a conversion. The Dragons went ahead when Prydie booted a long-range penalty but, after influential full-back Jason Tovey slipped awkwardly on the wet surface and limped off, Connacht raced into a 17-3 lead. Ronaldson drove over in the middle after an attacking line-out put the Dragons under the cosh. Carty added a penalty to the conversion a few minutes later. Landman’s needless high tackle and dismissal on the halfway line wrecked the Dragons’ flow as they faced an uphill task in playing the rest of the match with 14 men. After Carty missed a couple of straightforward penalties, back row Masterson added a further five points when he drove from five metres through the desperate Dragons defence on their own line, with Carty kicking another two points. The frustration of the afternoon boiled over when both packs got to grips with each other but the Dragons had the final say of the half. Welsh international Amos went diving through the mud and over the Connacht line after a move right from the base of a ruck. Linton checked for crossing by home centre Jack Dixon but ruled he had not interfered with play and granted the Dragons their touchdown. But it looked like Connacht would inch their way to a comfortable victory as the Dragons gave away a couple of penalties within reach of Leader, who took over the kicking duties when Carty went off. As much as the rain tried to ruin the game, handling was excellent for the most part by both sides. But the Dragons kicked on again and, despite their disadvantage, they got to within five points when Dixon scrambled his way over down the right from a well-worked move. It seemed like the Welsh outfit could secure an unlikely win but Connacht wrecked those hopes as Kearney charged down an attempted clearance inside the Dragons 22 and followed up to pounce on the ball. Leader converted to put Connacht 12 points to the good with just minutes remaining. However, the fighting Dragons would not be denied. After playing the ball for three minutes through phases up the field, Amos found a slight gap in the Connacht defence to go over from 20 metres for a touchdown that Prydie converted, thus securing a losing bonus point for the home side. Newport Gwent Dragons captain Rynard Landman could find himself in hot water after being sent off during his side’s 30-25 Guinness Pro12 defeat to Connacht at Rodney Parade. last_img read more

first_imgSyracuse (3-4, 0-3 Atlantic Coast) travels to Tallahassee, Florida, a place it’s never won, to play Florida State (3-4, 1-2) on Saturday. The Orange are looking to pick up their first conference win of the season and are the only winless ACC team in conference play.The Seminoles are coming off a two-point loss at No. 25 Wake Forest while the Orange’s home comeback attempt against Pittsburgh fell short in a 27-20 loss.Here’s how our beat writers think the game will shake out.Eric Black (5-2)Down BadFlorida State 31, Syracuse 23The Seminoles aren’t a great team. They’re 3-4, just like the Orange, and they’re coming off two-straight losses, just like the Orange. But they’re certainly at least a good team, something that Syracuse doesn’t quite have the right to call itself at this point. Florida State has defeated two Power 5 teams this year, two more than SU has. That includes a dominant 31-13 win over NC State a few weeks ago, the same team Syracuse lost to on Oct. 10, 16-10. And despite having lost two games in a row, the Seminoles’ opponents in those games were the two best teams in the ACC. Between the injury concerns and question marks at quarterback and the continued display of ineptitude by one of the worst offensive lines in the country, a road win at Doak Campbell is too much to ask for of this SU team right now.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAndrew Graham (5-2)Different opponent, same resultFlorida State 27, Syracuse 16After he’d retired from coaching, legendary FSU head man Bobby Bowden sat in the booth for a quarter of an FSU game and, when asked by the commentators to choose between having the coaching abilities he had the talent he could recruit — in essence, what’s more important: good coaching or good players? — Bowden chose players. It’s that simple. These teams both have notable failings and issues that aren’t getting coached away this season, but Florida State’s players are better than Syracuse’s. That’s not to say the Orange won’t hang around — again, both of these teams are both lifeless at the moment — but I’ll always take the bad team with four- and five-star recruits playing at home over the bad team with three-star recruits playing on the road.Josh Schafer (6-1)OvermatchedFlorida State 27 Syracuse 13Florida State and Syracuse have equal records but not equal performance through seven games. Three of the Seminoles losses came against current Top 25 members and the other came against Virginia, which is currently first in the Atlantic Division. The only common opponent between SU and FSU is North Carolina State. While the Orange lost 16-10, the Seminoles beat the Wolfpack 31-13. Sure, FSU hosted NC State but Syracuse will have to play in Doak Campbell Stadium as well. With nearly 80,000 fans screaming, a top 50 pass rush and questionable quarterback health, Syracuse has a lot stacked against it. Then bring in FSU’s star running back Cam Akers, who already has 773 rushing yards, and FSU just has a little bit more going for it than Syracuse. The Orange may salvage this season, but on the road against a team full of four and five-star recruits isn’t the week to do it.

first_img11 November 2015South Africa is among 13 countries that form the executive committee of the International Criminal Police Organisation (Interpol), elected on a three-year mandate.The executive committee consists of the president, three vice-presidents and nine delegates representing the organisation’s four regions: Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe.The committee is an elective body responsible for complying with the resolutions of the general assembly, by which it supervises the execution of the decisions of the assembly.Voting took place during Interpol’s general assembly, held last week in Kigali, Rwanda.The South African delegation on the executive committee will be headed by Brigadier Anbuen Naidoo, who is also the head of Interpol’s National Central Bureau (NCB), situated in Pretoria.#sapsHQ South Africa elected to INTERPOL Executive Committee. @INTERPOL_HQ ME https://t.co/OEjJa9FChd pic.twitter.com/itL3tTGUEt— SA Police Service (@SAPoliceService) November 6, 2015The NCB was recently incorporated into the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation, the Hawks, and will report directly to its national head, Lieutenant-General Mthandazo Ntlemeza. The bureau is set to be staffed by highly trained police under the command and control of the Hawks, which links the South African Police Service (SAPS) to global law enforcement agencies.Police Minister Nkosinathi Nhleko said they were humbled by the vote of confidence shown by fellow members of Interpol on the continent and vowed to continue playing a leading role in international policing.“We commit to using this position to promote the interests of the continent in the global fight against international organised crime.

LATEST STORIES “We talked about that a lot. Some kind of way, we have to keep those guys in the rotation and keep them available,” Gentry said. “Obviously, they may not play the amount of minutes that they’ve been playing … but I do think that we have to keep them in the rotation and put them in situations where we can see how their development is going and see how they are against the better players in the league and playing with our better players.”The Pelicans have made Holiday the face of the franchise since Davis’ trade demand. The veteran guard, who is in the second year of a five-year, $126 million contract, said he understands the inherent conflict between focusing on players who are committed to the franchise long-term and playing Davis. But he added, “I think we’re still trying to win. Having Anthony on our team and Anthony on the court, in my opinion, is our best chance of winning.“So I guess maybe there’s a little give and take,” Holiday continued. “Maybe you don’t play him 38 minutes or whatever. … But if you want to develop guys, we can probably find different slots.”Gentry said he wasn’t concerned that his players might be distracted during home games by boos directed at Davis.“We’re in a hell of a lot of trouble if we’re going to let boos determine if we play hard or not,” Gentry said.The coach also sounded confident that team chemistry would not be undermined.“When you’re a competitor, when you step out between the lines, you’re going to play basketball and you’re going to try to do the best you can with your other teammates to try to win the basketball game,” Gentry said. “I think that’s where we are right now. The shock of the whole thing is over. Obviously he said he doesn’t want to be here; he wants to be traded. All that has been known. Now what we’re trying to do is bring back some normalcy to the whole situation and what can we do as coaches and what can we do as teammates to try to win basketball games.”Davis said he has no regrets over how he’s handled the matter.“I never regret anything I do,” he said.He also said he would have understood if the Pelicans insisted on not playing him. ‘We are too hospitable,’ says Sotto amid SEA Games woes New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis (23) takes the court to warm up for the team’s NBA basketball game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, his first game since injuring his left index finger last month, in New Orleans on Friday, Feb. 8, 2019. (AP Photo/Scott Threlkeld)NEW ORLEANS — Even with one foot out the door, Anthony Davis is showing he can still produce prolific statistics for the New Orleans Pelicans.He only needed 25 minutes to score 32-points in his first game for New Orleans since requesting a trade nearly two weeks ago. Davis also had nine rebounds and three blocks in a 122-117 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night.ADVERTISEMENT Whether his presence in the lineup is sustainable for a club that is trying to move on without him — and protect his trade value by keeping him healthy — remains to be seen. But for now, coach Alvin Gentry and other Pelicans veterans sound inclined to try to make it work.“He’s obviously made it known that he won’t sign back, but he still loves the game of basketball. I know that he loves us as players, and he’s going to go out there and play as hard as he can,” Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday said. “If Anthony’s out there, that’s the best chance of us winning.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine ‍football chiefSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesThe Pelicans entered their game at Memphis on Saturday night at 25-31, five games behind the Los Angeles Clippers for the Western Conference’s final playoff spot with 26 games left.When Davis initially made his trade request public through his agent, Rich Paul, Davis’ image was largely removed from the Pelicans’ website and promotional material. Gentry also started providing more playing time to younger players the club wants to develop. US judge bars Trump’s health insurance rule for immigrants But after Thursday’s trade deadline passed without a deal to move Davis, the Pelicans had to decide if they were willing to defy NBA rules by shelving their healthy six-time All-Star. For now, they’ve put him back in the starting lineup, albeit on reduced playing time as he works his way back from a sprained left index finger that had sidelined him since Jan. 18.On Friday night, Davis was kept on the bench in a tense fourth quarter despite the teams being separated by as little as one basket several times in the waning minutes.Gentry said he limited Davis’ minutes because it had been weeks since he played.“I was not going to have him — first game back — play 38, 40 minutes,” Gentry said. “I thought he played well the minutes that he was in there and did a great job. He was typical Anthony.”Gentry is hoping to find a balance that allows Davis to play — and hopefully stay healthy — while allowing other front-court players like the resurgent Jahlil Okafor and third-year pro Cheick Diallo to get meaningful minutes.ADVERTISEMENT SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte MOST READ Oil plant explodes in Pampanga town Border collie named Verb wins Westminster agility contest “Obviously, it’s a business,” Davis said. “I know their standpoint on it and I was prepared for that.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Nextlast_img read more

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 24 Nov 2014 – A two hour power outage was the least of the concern Friday night once residents learned there had been a traffic accident; that news spread rapidly and also revealed that the lone driver in that truck died, reportedly at the scene. The man, who was in his Ford F-150 truck alone slammed into a utility pole; the impact snapping the pole in half and that caused the outage in the Leeward Highway side of the Bight on Friday around 10pm. Police have still not given the go ahead on the identity of the deceased officially nor any insight thus far on what may have led to the accident. We can say the man is of the Walters family here in Provo and that he may be considered the fourth traffic death for 2014. It is still unclear how the police rule the death of Quincy Gardiner of North Caicos, who was in August found lifeless in the road. The autopsy is still not made public in that case.
