Finding an end to strike is in everyone’s best interest

first_imgNEITHER the Writers Guild of America nor Hollywood’s big studios have anything to gain from a protracted writers strike. Los Angeles doesn’t, either. That’s why both sides should – and, for the sake of the community they call home, must – come to a fair resolution quickly. At issue in the ongoing strike is royalties from Internet streams and downloads of Hollywood material. Clearly, online revenues are going to make up an increasing share of what the industry brings in, while broadcast TV will make up an even smaller one. It only stands to reason that the creators of the content should get some portion of the online take. Given how little money is being made now in these new platforms and how much money stands to be made over time, they ought to be able to agree on sharing profits when, and if, they come.

TRANSFER REPORT! Real star eyeing Prem switch amid Chelsea and Man City interest

first_img1 Real Madrid playmaker James Rodriguez is considering a move to the Premier League – amid interest from Manchester City and Chelsea.The Colombian star endured an indifferent 2015/16 campaign at the Bernabeu and made just 17 La Liga starts for Zinedine Zidane’s side.The French manager is reportedly willing to let the 24-year-old leave the Spanish capital this summer, although Real officials would prefer him to stay due to the commercial revenue he brings in for the club.Having enjoyed a promising return to form for Colombia in the Copa America, James is attracting interest from Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, while Chelsea are also weighing up whether to make a mega-money bid.According to El Confidencial, Chelsea and City could enter a bidding war for James, with a fee of around £40m expected to be enough to lure him away from the Bernabeu.

Group trying to preserve plants

first_imgThe plants, which twist for 40 feet around the palms, were planted near the turn of the last century around the edges of an orange grove, one of many citrus farms that carpeted the region at the time. As the tropical plants grew, images of them were used to market both Glendora and California as a lush paradise during the state’s booster period. In 1977, the bougainvillea became a state historical landmark, thanks to a nomination by then-owner Lloyd Pittman, who ran the 10-acre valencia and navel grove. The next year, the vines became the first plant to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. For the Pittmans, the bougainvillea was a point of pride. Lloyd Pittman, now 91, constructed steel trellises for each tree before he sold most of his property in the mid-1980s. “It’s been a part of our lives, and we felt it was significant enough to fight for,” said his son Galen Pittman, a horticultural curator for the Los Angeles County Arboretum. Since taking over care of the vines in the 1980s, the city has struggled to maintain the bougainvillea, which threatens to topple the slender palm trees to which it is attached, Glendora Parks Superintendent Halla Speaker said. The bougainvillea requires more regular pruning and needs a stronger support structure, according to Glendora resident and Monrovia Growers employee Katharine Rudnyk. She nominated the vines for the recent foundation listing, and the bougainvillea was picked from hundreds of entries. Rudnyk said the plant is an icon that is representative of California history. “It was part of the citrus industry,” Rudnyk said. “And now, appropriately, it surrounds a development.” The vines grow along two sides of the Rancho del Bougainvillea, a dense, Spanish-style gated community that was built in the late 1980s. The project was constructed when the Pittmans sold most of their property. Residents of the Rancho pay a yearly fee that goes to maintaining the bougainvillea, but that only totals $3,888, Speaker said. The city would need several thousand dollars more to adequately care for the vines, but the residents have rejected efforts to raise the fee, she said. “A political argument could be made that maybe everybody in Glendora should pay a little bit, but the council would have to decide that,” Speaker said. Mayor Ken Herman said he has asked Rudnyk for a professional recommendation on care of the bougainvillea. He said he supported Rudnyk and increased recognition for the plants. The Chamber of Commerce had considered using the plants as a theme to promote the city, but that plan never went anywhere, he said. As for Rudnyk, she said, “I just want (the bougainvillea) to be around after my time is done on this earth.” melissa.pamer@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2110160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Last month, the vines were named to a list of 21 “Heroes of Horticulture” – plants and trees across the nation that have been witnesses to history and are now considered threatened. The Glendora vines are at risk due to development and lack of upkeep, according to The Cultural Landscape Foundation. The Washington, D.C.,-based group each year issues “Landslide,” a list of landscapes the foundation says may be lost. The group has recommended that Glendora, which maintains the trees with a late winter pruning, develop a different care plan that would better take into account the vines’ age and size. The bougainvillea deserves protection in part because of the plants’ connection to the region’s bygone citrus culture, said Charles Birnbaum, founder and president of Cultural Landscape Foundation. “This part of California has been growing so much that this is one of the only truly living witnesses to a former lifestyle,” Birnbaum said. GLENDORA – The massive, tangled vines along Bennett and Minnesota avenues have witnessed the rise and fall of the San Gabriel Valley’s citrus industry. They have withstood the suburbanization of Glendora and surrounding communities and are now seeing the push toward redevelopment in the Valley. For more than a century, the papery, purple blossoms of the Glendora Bougainvillea have brightened the trunks of 25, 90-foot-tall palm trees as the city has changed around them. Now, a national preservation group is advocating that Glendora take better care of the historic plants, which are the largest collection of bougainvillea in the nation. last_img read more

It’s official: Bush bolting for NFL

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita But the shocker is Matua’s expected departure, because his draft stock is highly debatable. He never asked the NFL for an evaluation, so no one knows where he would end up in the draft. Matua is expected to meet with USC coaches today. His decision caught the coaching staff off-guard, because he was expected to return for his senior season. “I’m sick and tired of explaining to players you cannot trust somebody putting their hand deep in your pocket,” said offensive line coach Pat Ruel, referring to agents. “Trust the people that care about you like your family.” Ruel ejected several agents hanging around the Heritage Hall lobby before Bush’s press conference. For those keeping score, USC lost Bush and tailback LenDale White in two days. The duo concluded their senior year by setting an NCAA record for most yards gained in a single season (3,042). The old mark of 2,997 was set by Oklahoma State’s Barry Sanders and Gerald Hudson in 1988. USC coach Pete Carroll knew for weeks Bush would leave, but he now faces an unexpectedly hectic weekend. Offensive tackle Winston Justice said he will announce today he will turn pro while safety Darnell Bing remained undecided but was leaning toward entering the draft, according to sources. “He’s 50-50 right now,” secondary coach Greg Burns said. “Now, ‘Thunder and Lightning’ are gone from USC,” Bush said. And the Trojans are waiting for official announcements from Justice, Bing and Matua. There was one bit of good news for the Trojans. As expected, wide receiver Steve Smith officially announced he would return for his senior season. Bush is expected to be selected by the Houston Texans with the No. 1 pick. “If you have a Reggie Bush, he’s an explosive player,” said Texans general manager Charley Casserly. “Hands on the ball, he can score any time he gets it. He can be a runner, he can be a receiver, he can be a returner and he could be a decoy if you will. “All we can say is that what has happened here with Reggie Bush and (Texas quarterback) Vince Young declaring, with the addition of Matt Leinart among other players, is that you have a real strong top of the draft. It means we’re going to get a real good player if we keep the pick, and if we trade the pick, we’ve got certainly a very valuable commodity to trade.” Bush said he didn’t care if the Texans drafted him. “I was going to make my decision on what was best for me,” Bush said. “Not the draft position.” Bush acknowledged there are doubts about his size and whether he can be an every-down player in the NFL. “There are all those questions: Are you big enough, strong enough, fast enough, tough enough?” Bush said. “I’ll have to position myself to have an impact right away, and that will take a lot of hard work. “I’ll be excited to show any critics that I can be an every-down back.” Carroll had no doubts Bush would succeed in the NFL. “He’ll take that talent and wow them there, as a runner, as a receiver, and as a returner,” Carroll said. “Now the Reggie Bush Show goes to Sundays and I can’t wait to watch him there.” Bieniemy interviews UCLA running backs coach and recruiting coordinator Eric Bieniemy interviewed to become the Minnesota Vikings running backs coach on Wednesday. On Thursday, the Vikings named four more assistant coaches but Bieniemy was not among them. Bieniemy is the only person believed to have interviewed for the running backs position. New Vikings coach Brad Childress, a friend of Bieniemy’s, has worked quickly to assemble a staff.

Bush, perhaps the most-exciting player in USC history, surprised no one with his announcement, but there was so much interest the university locked the doors to Heritage Hall to keep out autograph seekers. “It’s a sad time and at the same time, it’s a happy time,” Bush said. “I did think about shocking everyone (and staying) but obviously I didn’t.

Bettis keeps putting off his goodbyes a little longer

first_imgPITTSBURGH — Jerome Bettis slammed the ball to the turf to celebrate his 5-yard touchdown run that put the Steelers ahead for good in their 31-17 playoff victory in Cincinnati on Sunday, then looked to hug someone. Within a moment, he realized he had committed a major gaffe. The touchdown was his. The souvenir ball wasn’t. Immediately, Bettis scurried to recover the ball, which he proudly toted off the field and later stuffed into his travel bag as he rushed to leave the stadium. Did Bettis realize the ball might be the last he carries across an NFL goal line, and thus wanted to make sure it didn’t get lost in some Bengals ball bag? “Nah,” he said. “It was a playoff touchdown ball. I’ve never kept any, so it was one of those things where I needed to get that one.” This Sunday, the NFL’s fifth-leading rusher hopes to depart Indianapolis with an even better parting gift: the Steelers’ first divisional playoff road victory in his 10 seasons with them, and one of the biggest upsets in franchise history. The Steelers have won on the road past the wild-card round only once in 30 years a 1984 upset in Denver. They’ve had only one other road victory so late in the postseason in their 73-year history, the franchise-altering AFC championship game upset at Oakland in January 1975 that led to the first of four Super Bowl titles. But Bettis isn’t caught up in what might seem like ancient history even if the soon-to-be 34-year-old is ancient himself by NFL running back standards. Bettis knows that if the Steelers can somehow finagle a victory in Indianapolis, as improbable as it might seem against what is widely seen as the NFL’s No. 1 team, he would buy another week. And then he would be within one more victory of what this season was all about: ending his career by playing in the Super Bowl in his hometown of Detroit. center_img “Anything can happen once you get to the playoffs,” he said. “That’s why we had to get there.” Bettis is a role player now, a wear-’em-down back who comes in and punishes defense with his 255-pound bulk once the Steelers get a lead. The eight-time 1,000-yard rusher gained only 368 yards during the season, barely nudging his career total of 13,662 yards. Yet he is as responsible as anyone for getting them into these playoffs. In what became the Steelers’ biggest game of the season, Bettis stepped out of his handyman role to run for 101 yards in a 21-9, win-or-else victory over Chicago on Dec. 11. That game ended the Steelers’ three-game losing streak, the Bears’ eight-game winning streak and preserved Bettis’ chance for that hometown Super Bowl. The Steelers haven’t lost since. Their players haven’t publicly hopped on this Let’s-Win-One-For-The-Bus crusade; rather, it is low-key and understated, almost like Bettis himself these days. Once the most interviewed player in their locker room, he often is invisible now during media periods, preferring to let brand-new 1,000-yard rusher Willie Parker have the attention. Parker, as a way of showing his respect and thanks, wore a throwback Bettis Rams jersey to the Steelers’ final home game Jan. 1. That day, thousands of fans in Heinz Field chanted, “One more year! One more year!” when Bettis was pulled after matching his career high with three touchdown runs. (The opponent? None other than those hometown Lions.) “That was an amazing feeling,” Bettis said. “If it is the end of the line, then it’s been incredible.” Bettis’ unselfishness was most visible when he refused to complain after being benched at the start of the 2003 season for Amos Zereoue. Wide receiver Hines Ward credits it for setting the tone of the Steelers’ locker room ever since. To Ward, Bettis’ gesture represented what the Steelers are all about. The unselfish attitude that no one player is bigger than the rest. A blue collar work ethic a cliched theme but, considering the Steelers’ practice field sits on the site of a former steel mill, a fitting one. Bettis’ value to the Steelers was illustrated when Ward broke down in tears talking to reporters after last year’s AFC title game loss to New England. Ward was upset because he feared Bettis would retire then, and, “he deserves to go out a champion.” Coach Bill Cowher agrees. “I have so much appreciation for him it seems like he’s always been there,” Cowher said. “When the day comes that he’s not there, there’s going to be a void there because it seems like he’s always been there every week. I can’t express what he stands for as a football player and as a person. “For every yard he’s gained on the field this guy, in my mind, has exceeded that off the field. I’ve never been around too many guys like that.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Finance manager dodges jail time as it would disrupt plans of billion-Euro Donegal wind farm

first_imgIn Oxford, Deputy Circuit Judge Patrick Eccles (pictured above) delivered a suspended sentence to English finance manager Michael Chase-Sarver for perverting the course of justice after dodging a speeding fine by deceiving authorities.Chase-Sarver and business partner Noel Shortt have plans to open a billion-Euro wind farm in Carrickaduff which could potentially create 300 jobs by December 2017.Despite Judge Eccles’ belief that Chase-Sarver deserves to spend time behind bars, he delivered a suspended sentence as he did not want to jeopardize the opening of the wind farm as it would ruin job prospects for 300 ‘honest’ workers. Chase-Sarver repainted his car after being caught speeding, asking mechanics to backdate the job to seem as though it had always been that colour and then claimed that someone else had been using his number plate fraudulently.‘This is Oxfordshire’ reported that although Judge Eccles believes he ‘deserved’ to go to jail, he spared him the time behind bars following evidence given from Irish engineer and property developer Noel Shortt that Chase-Sarver’s stint in jail would ‘sink’ their plans for a billion-euro 35,000 acre wind farm in Donegal which will create 300 jobs.The 35,000 acre site was bought from more than 100 individual farmers.The business men hope to have the wind farm running by December 2017 at the latest in order to cash in on a government subsidy, meaning turbines would have to be ordered this November. Judge Eccles, clearly displeased by Chase-Sarver’s actions, called him “unbelievably dishonest”, however added that he could not “allow an honest man’s life and 300 potential jobs be ruined by his actions.”A Facebook page which is supported by over 1,000 people was made by concerned locals in Donegal who opposed the plans for the wind farm. They are  investigating the impact a wind farm may have on the local community from Castlefin, through the Finn Valley, Mourne Derg and on to Barnesmore Gap.Chase-Sarver was sentenced to a four month stint behind bars, along with a two year suspended sentence. A curfew was also imposed upon him, meaning he will have to be at his home between the hours of 6pm and 6am every day.Finance manager dodges jail time as it would disrupt plans of billion-Euro Donegal wind farm was last modified: September 24th, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:crickaduffEnglandjudge patrick ecclesmichael chase-sarvernoel shorttoxfordshirewind farmlast_img read more

McElhinneys and The Hatter Coffee Co join forces for the best shoppers’ pick-me-up

first_imgMcElhinneys of Ballybofey has announced that it will begin serving coffee from the Hatter Tearoom in Stranorlar from tomorrow, Friday 16th March. In another step towards supporting and promoting local businesses, these two companies have come together to create an amazing offering of the best coffee the Twin Towns has to provide!The Hatter Story starts back in 2014 when the husband and wife team of Paddy and Shelley McMeniman took the bold step of opening their first Hatter Tearoom in Stranorlar. Using their combined experience from other roles, they believed they could create the perfect venue – with the best food, excellent customer service and great value for money. Staying true to their original mantra all these years has resulted in a hugely successful business, and multiple award wins for Customer Service among others. Always a warm welcome at the Hatter Tea RoomIn 2016, Paddy took on the initiative to train as a Barista and progressed to become a trainer himself, so he could pass on this new knowledge and skills on to his team here in Stranorlar. From this the Hatter Barista College was born, which now supplies individuals and companies alike with certificates and new skills in making the perfect cup of coffee.Just last year, Paddy and Shelly took another step into the business world and began operating the Hatter Express in Ballybofey. This new enterprise places emphasis on grab and go, without quality being compromised! With either of the stores, you can order in store, or use the Badoo app to order ahead. Amazingly the Hatter is the only company outside of Dublin to utilise this handy app. With the success of the 2 stores, the opportunity arose to sell their own branded coffee, roasted exclusively for the Hatter. The Hatter’s own coffee can be found in over 10 locations around the North West, the latest being with McElhinneys! Both the Hatter and McElhinneys are incredibly proud to be able to work together and continue to provide the best of service for all our customers! Paddy will be in-store in McElhinneys from 11am on Friday, 16th March where we will be serving FREE coffee all day today, and Paddy will be demonstrating his Barista skills with the Hatter’s unique coffee.
