(Photo courtesy Red Cross via YouTube)The American Red Cross Los Angeles Region honored Pasadena resident Sherry Moller for saving her young son’s life by applying the Pediatric First Aid/CPR training she received from the Red Cross.In January 2020, Moller was shopping with her mother and four-year-old son at a party supply store when she noticed her son started choking and had stopped breathing. As curious shoppers gathered around the incident, Moller dropped her items and ran to help her distressed son. The commotion confused and frightened Moller’s autistic boy, who fought against his mother’s repeated efforts to enwrap his waist and begin abdominal thrusts.The frantic mother then heard her instructor’s voice in her head to stay calm. Moller knelt before her son and calmly explained, “I’m going to help you, but you need to help me.”While lifting his arms, Moller explained what she was going to do and though he still fought her off, she had enough time to wrap her arms around him. After three abdominal thrusts, a piece of candy flew out of his mouth and Moller’s son was able to breathe again.Thanks to her training through the Red Cross Training Services course, Moller had the confidence and skills needed to save her son’s life. This action exemplified the highest degree of concern of one human being in a time of distress.For this act, Moller was awarded the American Red Cross Certificate of Merit, the highest award given by the American Red Cross to an individual or team of individuals who save or sustain a life by using skills and knowledge learned in an American Red Cross Training Services course. The certificate bears the signature of the President of the United States, who is the honorary chairman of the American Red Cross.Award recipients embody the spirit of the Red Cross, by using action to help alleviate human suffering in the face of an emergency. Since the Lifesaving Awards revival in 2018, the Red Cross has proudly awarded 1,384 individuals worldwide who have collectively helped to save 640 lives.center_img Subscribe Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Make a comment First Heatwave Expected Next Week More Cool Stuff 22 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Herbeauty10 Questions To Start Conversation Way Better Than ‘How U Doing?’HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyBaby Boom: The Stars Are Getting Busy In QuarantineHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyStop Eating Read Meat (Before It’s Too Late)HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWeird Types Of Massage Not Everyone Dares To TryHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyBohemian Summer: How To Wear The Boho Trend RightHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA 74 Year Old Fitness Enthusiast Defies All Concept Of AgeHerbeautyHerbeauty Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website last_img read more

Rental Investment Index second quarter update.Composed of nearly 20 million homes, the HCRI Index allows single-family rental home investors, lenders, and renters to keep track of the health of the single-family-for-lease market based on median Effective Gross Yields on national, state, and ZIP code levels.Due to difficulties in benchmarking this market, the HCRI helps investors identify accurate information regarding this surprisingly growing rental market.“The ability to know where to invest with this level of granularity has never been possible before, and it is going to revolutionize this market,” said Dave Garland, a single-family rental investor, and Partner at Second Century Ventures.Effective Gross Yields were highest in the Midwest and the South, making states in these regions the top performers nationwide. Mississippi leads the states at 12.9 percent, followed by Indiana and Ohio.However, according to HouseCanary, the most notable update this quarter is the difference in yields within the highest and lowest Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs).Rochester, New York earns the spot of the national leader in Effective Gross Yield with 17.2 percent. The following top MSAs include Memphis, Tennessee, Cleveland, Ohio, Buffalo-Cheektowaga-Niagara Falls, New York, and Birmingham-Hoover, Alabama. These cities with the highest percentage of yields all surpassed 12 percent effective yields on average, higher than any state last quarter.The lower part of the list is filled with MSAs from California, six cities specifically, where housing prices continuously increase faster than the growth in rents. In fact, California cities make up the three lowest effective yields, all below 5 percent.Overall, 28 of the top 50 MSAs in the country surpassed the nationwide average Effective Gross Yield of 8 percent this quarter.last_img read more

Board kicks in for new statewide pro bono coordinator

first_img Board kicks in for new statewide pro bono coordinator Board kicks in for new statewide pro bono coordinator September 15, 2005 Regular Newscenter_img The Board of Governors has committed to provide $50,000 for each of the next two years to partner with The Florida Bar Foundation in revamping the statewide pro bono coordinator program.“Some of you know we have had this program in the past. It costs $50,000 and is a very tailored and refined program,” Budget Chair Mayanne Downs told the board August 26. “[Foundation Executive Director] Jane Curran told us we’re seeing a reduction in hours for pro bono. Although we’re a flagship state [in providing pro bono services] we’re seeing a reduction in hours.”Program Evaluation Committee Chair Frank Walker said his committee also recommended the expenditure, saying it continues a worthy effort.“This will continue the long-term partnership the Bar has had with the Foundation in this area. It’s a great thing,” he said.The board unanimously approved the expenditure.According to information provided by the Foundation, the two organizations and three private firms combined to raise $130,000 in 2000 to hire a statewide pro bono director. That director left after a year, and it was decided to combine that job with one in Florida Legal Services, Inc., called the Statewide Resource Development Project.That was done in 2003, after a study to recommend how that new position should be focused. The project included working with major law firms to funnel their pro bono efforts to help legal aid agencies with complex legal matters, and helping some Bar sections with their pro bono programs. The project also helped promote the Bar’s Lawyers Challenge for Children program.The part-time director of that effort recently resigned, and the Foundation has again studied the position to determine best how to boost statewide pro bono efforts.“The new statewide pro bono initiative will enable Florida Legal Services to build upon the past successes and significantly expand the opportunities for pro bono service,” according to the Foundation. “The focus on major law firms, Bar sections, and corporate counsel offices will not only expand the number of attorneys providing assistance to those in need, but because of their leadership in the profession will help spur the development of pro bono culture in the profession.”Besides expanding those existing efforts, the new director will also work on developing a Web site to support pro bono services and improve media contacts to publicize pro bono activities.“moving the project to providing real and visible value not only to families in need of legal assistance but to lawyers and the profession, we are confident that the ongoing support for the project will expand and the services available through the statewide pro bono project will continue to be refined and grow,” the Foundation said.According to the Foundation, the number of lawyers individually providing pro bono and the amount of those services has grown slowly in the past few years, and at a lower rate than the growth of the Bar. The number of law firms providing services through a firm plan and the amount of those services actually declined in 2003-04, the latest year for which figures are available.last_img read more

Kompany signs new City deal

first_img “When I arrived in 2008, I could never have dreamed that we could achieve what we have over the last six years but, for me, this is just the start of the journey,” Kompany said on the club’s website. “This team is stronger now than it’s ever been; we have competition for places in every position and a dressing room full of exceptional, motivated people who want to continue making history together. “Lifting two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the Capital One Cup have been four of the best days of my life but I believe that there are many more of these occasions ahead. “There are so many new landmarks and records to chase and I hope signing this new contract is taken as a statement of intent that I want to keep fighting for trophies for this special club.” “We have a common goal and so much to look forward to – a family of clubs, the opening of City Football Academy, exciting players coming through our youth system – why would I go anywhere else?” The Belgium international joined City from Hamburg as a 22-year-old in 2008, ahead of the club’s takeover by Sheikh Mansour, and once he had established himself as a central defender rather than midfield option, he quickly emerged as a leading player in a side which has been transformed in the years since. He was appointed City captain in the summer of 2011, and helped the club to the Premier League title in his first full season wearing the armband – his memorable headed goal in the 1-0 win over rivals Manchester United proving one of the pivotal moments of a dramatic run-in. Kompany has made more than 240 appearances for City in all competitions. A day after David Silva extended his stay, and following on from Samir Nasri and Aleksandar Kolarov, the 28-year-old Kompany signed a five-year contract. Should he see it through to its conclusion, Kompany will have been with the club for 11 years. Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has become the latest member of the Barclays Premier League-winning squad to commit his future to the club with a new long-term deal. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
