first_img Subscribe Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Mezzanine MausoleumThe glorious architecture and artwork of the Mountain View Mausoleum are celebrated in a new photographic exhibit by the Altadena Historical Society in the gallery at Webster’s Community Pharmacy.The one-dozen color photos of the landmark are part of a continuing cooperative program by the Historical Society and Webster’s to present Altadena’s colorful history in a popular, accessible location.The enlarged photos show the exterior and interior of the mausoleum, which is located at 2300 N. Marengo Ave., three blocks north of Woodbury Road, and is itself open to the public seven days a week.“This is Altadena’s own Sistine Chapel,” said Jane Brackman, Ph.D., Historical Society president and curator of the exhibit at Webster’s.“Most Altadenans, even those who have lived here all their lives, have driven past the mausoleum on Marengo but have never gone inside. We hope this exhibit will encourage people to visit this Altadena landmark, which is truly stunningly beautiful.”The high, vaulted ceiling of the main building’s 180-foot-long Great Gallery was painted in Renaissance-style frescoes depicting the story of Christianity, Brackman said.The ceiling mural by Swedish native Martin Syvertsen features more than 250 scenes and 239 life-sized figures. “It took him four years to complete, and was his last commission,” Brackman said.Built in 1925, the reinforced concrete building is of a neo-Mediterranean style with red-tiled roof. The elaborate interior features 64 types of Italian marble, numerous stained-glass windows by Los Angeles’ renowned Judson Studios–still operating in nearby Highland Park–and what may be glazed tiles from the famous Greuby Faience Co.Mausoleum historians say that builder Cecil E. Bryan considered Mountain View “the crown jewel” of the 80 mausoleums that he built across the country in that era. The construction cost was said to exceed $500,000 at a time when the average new house cost under $10,000.The exhibit is in the East Gallery of Webster’s, 2450 N. Lake Ave, entered from Lake or from the east parking lot, and is open from 8:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. weekdays, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturdays, and closed Sundays.“The Historical Society’s exhibits in our rear entry corridor have been hugely popular with the public, and we are delighted to have this beautiful, new exhibit here for the next three months,” said Meredith Miller, Webster’s co-owner. “It’s an example of why we have ‘Community’ in our name.”For more information, visit Make a comment Top of the News Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes 11 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it More Cool Stuff HerbeautyA 74 Year Old Fitness Enthusiast Defies All Concept Of AgeHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyAmazing Sparks Of On-Screen Chemistry From The 90-sHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWhat’s Your Zodiac Flower Sign?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThese Fashion Tips Are Making Tall Girls The Talk Of The TownHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyShort On Time? 10-Minute Workouts Are Just What You NeedHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyTop 9 Predicted Haircut Trends Of 2020HerbeautyHerbeauty Community Newscenter_img Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Photo by Alan Place.OUTGOING Ireland rugby head coach Joe Schmidt answered the call to help inspire the next generation achieve their career goals at the JP McManus All-Ireland Scholarships Awards last Saturday,The serene setting of the University of Limerick’s riverside campus was the perfect location for the former English teacher, turned international rugby coach, to encourage a new team of aspiring winners to realise their potential.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Schmidt, who became an Irish citizen four years ago, told the 125 scholarship recipients at UL that “education is a hugely important part of every young person’s development in life”.“It’s fantastic to be able to be here today to recognise first-hand the outstanding achievements of each and every student present. I encourage them all to keep working hard and to make the most of their opportunities,” he added.Each recipient receives full academic financial support for the duration of their third level studies.Schmidt joined an illustrious list of guest speakers such as Irish Presidents Michael D. Higgins and Mary McAleese; US President Bill Clinton; as well as other great sporting heroes, including jockey AP McCoy, rugby icon Paul O’Connell, Limerick hurling manager John Kiely and Irish soccer legend Martin O’Neill.The 125 recipients were selected from a minimum of two highest-achieving students from each of the 32 counties, including seven winning scholars scoring the maximum 625 Leaving Cert points.The most popular area of study among the scholarship recipients is medicine, closely followed by engineering and science.Ten years ago Kieran Dalton was a recipient of an All Ireland Scholarship.Since then, he has qualified as a pharmacist and was involved in making interventions to optimise medication regimens and ensure patient safety in hospitals.Having recently also completed a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), he has been working full time as a lecturer in clinical practice in the UCC School of Pharmacy and is working on a number of collaborative projects in clinical research.Established in 2008 and sponsored by JP McManus, the third level educational scholarship is awarded to a minimum of two highest-achieving students from each of the 32 counties. They must meet a further set of criteria, including attending a non-fee-paying school and being exempt from the Leaving Certificate fee.This year, seven All Ireland Scholarship recipients scored the maximum 625 Leaving Cert points.Each scholarship is valued at €6,750 per annum in the Republic or £5,500 in the Six Counties.The programme is administered by the Department of Education and Skills and the Department for the Economy with support from the Department of Education, Northern Ireland.To date, 1,496 students have been awarded an All Ireland Scholarship and 905 have graduated from university.

Navajo community left to fight COVID-19 with limited resources

first_imgABC News(GALLUP, New Mexico) — BY: MATT GUTMAN, ROBERT ZEPEDA, TENZIN SHAKYA, and ALLIE YANGCOVID-19 is surging through the Navajo community, which is suffering one of the highest infection rates per capita in the country. And the peak is still weeks away.Dr. Sriram Shamasunder, co-founder of the HEAL Initiative at the University of California San Francisco, has been practicing emergency medicine from the back of a car. He’s there with a team of UCSF nurses and doctors helping the Navajo COVID-19 response team on the ground. The care this team can provide is extremely limited.“[The] native population [is] similar to vulnerable patients all over the country, whether black or Latinx population… They are more susceptible,” Shamasunder told “Nightline.” “New Mexico Native Americans only make up 5% of the population but they make up 20% of COVID-positive [patients].”Shamasunder has teamed up with locals like the COPE program’s Nitumigaabow Champagne. They’ve been doing rounds at a motel in Gallup, New Mexico, where the unsheltered and the sick can go to get off the street and away from extended families.Most of the burden of caring for the sick in their community falls on the fellow Navajo. Historically, the U.S. government hasn’t helped much, breaking dozens of promises with Native American tribes for centuries, dating far past Johnson v. M’Intosh in 1823.Congress has approved $8 billion for tribal assistance for COVID-19 relief, but that money has to be split among 574 tribes. Tribal governments say the money still hasn’t arrived yet.“Sometimes it goes through the federal agencies before it gets to the tribe, or through the states. We have been using the same process and wait. And you have to submit for the funding… But the need is now,” Navajo President Jonathan Nez told “Nightline.”An estimated 30% of people who live on the Navajo reservations do not have access to running water, and turn to outdoor pumps to get their supply. It makes it that much more difficult to fulfill the constant handwashing necessary during the COVID-19 pandemic.“Nightline” met with a man named Elmer at one of these pumps in Thoreau, New Mexico, who was there to get water.“For little children to wash up daily, to have them clean daily, is a problem… They love to play outdoors and to keep them clean is hard, because they love the outdoors and play in the dirt,” he said.Former Navajo Nation Attorney General Ethel Branch launched a crowdfunding campaign to help distribute food and water to the most vulnerable in her community. Branch is part of a larger grassroots effort to provide essential needs to the community.“There are only 13 grocery stores available for my people,” she said.Klee Benally is one of the group’s organizers. He’s been setting up the handwashing stations and distributing them around the reservation.“It’s just one fix to address the hygiene issue,” Benally said. “[We] don’t wait until people are sick because the conditions that are making people sick and more at risk are right on this street.”The Navajo Nation is larger than West Virginia, but its population of about 300,000 has access to only about 20 intensive care unit beds.The Indian Health Service says it’s had to build additional temporary hospital beds to prepare for predictions of 200 additional patients a day and over 100 ICU-level patients across the area.Dr. Michelle Tom grew up under the shadow of Chimney Butte, Arizona — also without running water.She’s now the only Navajo emergency physician at her urgent care clinic in Winslow, Arizona.At the urgent care facility, patients pull up and they’re intubated even though it’s not technically an ICU or hospital. If their condition is critical, the only way to save their lives is to get a helicopter. But after that, Tom says, she doesn’t know what happens to the patients.“We don’t know. We don’t have access to them anymore. And that’s where the disconnect is,” Tom told “Nightline. “That’s where the hard part of this for us, especially for me… Everyone knows everyone… We all know who’s not doing so well. And as soon as they leave that chopper, they’re no longer in our hands.”Tom says the closest ICU facility where she can send patients is at least one hour away by chopper or up to three hours in an ambulance.Growing up, Tom says she never saw a medical professional like herself.“I never saw another Navajo as a nurse or a doctor,” she said. “You know, sometimes there’s a disconnect when language and cultures are not meeting. And we know that just by studies and even by experience, you’re not going to have the best health care.”That’s not from a lack of effort. Tom is handling an alarming number of presumptive cases.“I was doing car triage yesterday and I would say we had about 15 cars, you know, and … just me on my shift in the car triage,” she said. “That’s not counting [the local] medical center, who is an E.R. That’s not counting ones that bypassed me to go to urgent care. These are presumptive cases.”Multigenerational households are a factor in the spread, Tom said.“That’s part of our origins studies. That’s where we are as a people, that our community comes first… These are our neighbors. These are our relatives; our brothers and sisters. So when we’re telling them to go home and isolate, they’re isolating with eight people. And that’s even for myself.”Tom left her family and moved to an apartment an hour away to try to minimize the risk of infecting the group of people she’s trying to save.“My job is immensely hard because I have such a connection to my people and to my land,” she said. “Our elders, our teachers … protectors. They hold all the key elements that we need to have a strong sense of identity.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

West released the following message to the fleet in honor of Navy spouses May 11.“Shipmates, Military Spouse Appreciation Day, although officially recognized May 11 this year, should be a daily occurrence. Our spouses work as hard as we do making sure our homes and families are well looked after and allowing us to focus on America’s missions. Our spouses have to pay the bills, fix the cars, build science projects, and most times work a full time job themselves. They are also the ones who may have to answer the door when someone in uniform knocks and delivers a message no one ever wants to hear. All over the globe, the proud men and women who support our Navy’s Sailors consistently answer the call of sacrifice. It takes a truly remarkable person to endure the separation and stress of being married to a Sailor – it takes a unique set of gifts. And all of you who proudly stand beside our Navy men and women do so quietly, offering your prayers, kindness, and love, while seeking nothing in return. If Sailors are the backbone of the Navy, then truly our families are the Navy’s heart and soul. For without all of you, there would be nothing to protect and defend. On behalf of my wife, Bobbi, and myself, I would like to personally thank each and every one of you who continue to advocate for and offer your unending support to our shipmates every day, and to also thank you for everything you do to make our Navy and our Nation the greatest and strongest on earth. HOOYAH Navy spouses! We are all so proud of all you do for us! Very Respectfully, Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Rick West”[mappress]Naval Today Staff , May 20, 2012; Image: navy View post tag: sends View post tag: Master View post tag: chief May 20, 2012last_img read more
