Yet according to statements by the Rose Bowl and the Convention Center, both locations are continuing with events.According to Rose Bowl General Manager Darryl Dunn, as of now Korean Pop supergroup BTS is still planning to perform May 2-3 and May 5 at the Rose Bowl. The group did cancel its Seoul concerts in April. On Thursday, 256 new cases of the outbreak were reported in South Korea, bringing the total number of reported cases to over 2,000.“It is unavoidable that the [Seoul] concert must be canceled without further delay,” read an announcement in Korean on the band’s Twitter page at the time. “Please understand that this decision was made after extensive and careful consideration.”According to Dunn, the stadium is now being cleaned every two hours.“We do have cleaning staff on site every day,” said Meredith Thomas, director of communications. “We’ve actually upped our cleaning within the facility to every two hours. That’s something that was implemented this past Monday.”“Our cleaning staff is typically on site every day, but their actual cleaning and maintenance of this facility has picked up with this known virus.”The Rose Bowl hosts major sold-out concerts, and widely attended UCLA football games every year.At least 3,100 people have died from the virus worldwide, and 90,000 people are currently infected.So far there are no known cases in Pasadena. Sixty cases have been reported in California as of Friday morning.Jeanne Goldschmidt, executive director of the Pasadena Convention & Visitors Bureau, said  the city’s emergency  health declaration “was the right thing to do.”“We are communicating with our clients to keep them informed of the latest news as it relates to their upcoming events in Pasadena,” Goldschmidt said. “We are also working closely with our meeting planners to evaluate their events on a case by case basis. Right now there are no federal restrictions on meetings, events and travel in the United States.”The Convention & Visitors Bureau has published extensive materials related to the virus, online here.According to city spokesperson Lisa Derderian, the city has been in contact with local stakeholders. Fitness centers have been reminded to wipe down common areas including weights and treadmills.City officials have also spoken to officials at the Pasadena Senior Center, where classes are held throughout the week.Several places have installed more hand sanitizers.“We’re working with some of our larger hotels in town because they have events often, even our city employees,” said Derderian. “We have a thousand-plus city employees, so we’re keeping them updated so they have the latest information.”The outbreak has impacted the stock market, stoking fears of a global recession.King’s County in Washington state has been particularly hard hit, with eight deaths from the virus. Nordstrom’s corporate office employees in Seattle have been told to telecommute and work from home. Amazon and Facebook have made similar edicts to their employees.A doctor in Tokyo recommended the Olympics be postponed.Atlanta-based Gas South has also sent its employees home.Yet not all career fields can work from home. Local restaurants and retail businesses make up a big part of Old Pasadena.“The first response when I bring it up to my tax clients is there’s a lot of misinformation out there that’s coming from the news media and just people in general,” said local businessman Ishmael Trone. “They’re just going along and continuing to go about their daily lives as normal. But they are concerned about schools and places where there are a lot of people gathering in one place.” 42 recommendedShareShareTweetSharePin it Community News Top of the News Business News Make a comment Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenacenter_img Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

It’s a wrap! Meet the proptech making a meal of apartment developments


first_imgProptech can sometimes get a little dull when geeks start chuntering on about code and algorithms.But a company has launched with a more unusual approach to proptech that aims to help leasehold residential development managers and freeholders earn up to £90,000 a year from their unused outdoor space.Streetdots has an army of 2,500 vetted street food and drink vendors – and of course the ubiquitous three-wheeled coffee van – that can be set up within a development’s unused public spaces.The company was launched last year and has already got Savills and the Grovesnor Estate in London as clients, as well as US build-to-rent behemoth Greystar and hopefully soon major housing association Notting Hill Genesis.Built-to-rentGreystar is using the service at its huge Greenford Quay mixed use development in NW London to attract tenants to the area, which isn’t known for the quality of its restaurants or shops.Streetdots was founded by two food entrepreneurs who had a ‘tuck truck’ but who found it was hard to find flexible pitches to park up their vehicle.Streetdots, whose name is a shorthand for the pitches it makes available at sites, is also hoping its service will prove popular at student halls and even care homes.It says it service offers developments an ‘instant community’ by providing residents with a range of mobile food and drink units, all organised via an app.“Rather than small squares and other dormant pieces of land sitting unused, we work in collaboration with property owners to provide these spaces with mobile independent traders and make the most of the space,” says Streetdots spokesperson Charlotte Dove McCarthy (left).“We started with food but we’re also expanding into retail, wellbeing and music. Every space is an opportunity with our service.”Streetdots build-to-rent Savills October 31, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Lewandowski strikes season’s 44th goal


first_imgRobert Lewandowski’s remarkable goal-scoring exploits at Bayern Munich in 2019-20 have seen him record a new personal best, with a 44th goal of the season netted in a meeting with Bayer Leverkusen.The reigning German champions were back at their record-setting best on Saturday, having initially been given an early scare. Hansi Flick’s side fell behind inside nine minutes, but recovered quickly to once again assert their dominance over a domestic rival.Lewandowski once again got in on the act, as he has on a regular basis throughout the current campaign.In some ways it can be considered a surprise that it took 66 minutes for him to trouble the scorers.Once the target was found, though, the prolific Poland international was able to celebrate raising an individual bar that he has already set at a height that few can compete with.Lewandowski has reached the 40-goal mark in five successive seasons, with 235 efforts recorded in total for Bayern across just 279 appearances. He is once again up to 30 in the Bundesliga this term, which represents the third time he has hit that tally – and the first since 2016-17.Only the legendary Gerd Muller can claim to be able to better that return from Lewandowski, having breached the 30-goal mark on five occasions.It is, however, the fact that he now has 44 across all competitions that will be giving Lewandowski the greatest satisfaction, as he has risen above the haul he recorded in the aforementioned 2016-17 campaign.His talismanic efforts have also helped Bayern to re-write history once more.The free-scoring Bavarian giants have now plundered 90 goals across 30 games in 2019-20, with no Bundesliga side having ever been as destructive. Flick is the one giving Bayern the freedom to go out and express themselves in devastating fashion.He has also added an entry to the record books that a star-studded side have ripped up on a regular basis this season.Flick has spent 20 games at the Bayern helm, with a standing taken up back at the top of the Bundesliga table under his guidance.The vast majority of opponents have been blown away during his tenure, with a record number of goals scored during the early months of his Bundesliga reign.RelatedPosts Club’s server collapses over ticket demand for first Bundesliga game in 11 years Bayern Munich fans undergo Super Cup coronavirus tests Vidal lands in Milan to complete move from Barca to Inter Tags: Bayer LeverkusenBayern MunichBundesligaRobert Lewandowskilast_img read more

WWE Divas To Visit Refugee Camps In Rwanda


first_imgWWE Divas Alicia Fox and Natalya will visit refugee camps in Rwanda this week as part of their alliance with the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign to help raise awareness and funds to fight malaria in sub-Saharan Africa.WWE’s Divas will help distribute life-saving bed nets to help protect refugee families, who are fleeing conflict in neighboring Democratic Republic of the Congo, from malaria. They will also meet with officials from the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) to learn about the humanitarian situation there.“Refugees already face unimaginable hardships,” said Chris Helfrich, Director of Nothing But Nets. “A simple bed net can stop mothers and children from worrying about a deadly mosquito bite. We’re proud to show the WWE Divas — and WWE fans everywhere — how malaria prevention tools like bed nets keep families safe. With more than 140 million social media fans, WWE and its Divas have an incredible opportunity to spread the buzz about stopping malaria.”Nothing But Nets has partnered with UNHCR since 2008, working together to provide vulnerable refugee families fleeing conflict or natural disasters with insecticide-treated mosquito nets that can keep them safe from malaria. The partners have provided more than 1 million bed nets to refugees living in camps across Africa; as a result, malaria dropped from the leading killer of refugees to the number five cause of death.“WWE is proud to partner with Nothing But Nets to raise awareness and funds to protect families from deadly malaria,” said Stephanie McMahon, WWE Executive Vice President, Creative. “Through our partnership, WWE will continue to reach out to our passionate fan base to spread the message about preventing this disease. It is our hope that when WWE fans learn that a child dies from malaria every 60 seconds, they will be inspired to send a net and save a life.” WWE aims to send 20,000 bed nets to refugees.The trip is part of Nothing But Nets’ alliance with WWE, announced at the 2012 Social Good Summit. There, UN Foundation Resident Entrepreneur Elizabeth Gore appeared with McMahon and WWE Divas Layla and Alicia Fox, who urged their fans to support Nothing But Nets online and offline.Since 2006, Nothing But Nets has raised more than $45 million from hundreds of thousands of grassroots supporters, and sent more than 7 million bed nets to families across Africa. Anyone — from students to CEOs — can help protect families in Africa from malaria. To learn more and to donate, visit www.NothingButNets.net.last_img read more

Russia accused of targeting chemical weapons watchdog


first_imgBRUSSELS – The Dutch defence minister on Thursday accused Russia’s military intelligence unit of attempted cybercrimes targeting the international chemical weapons watchdog and the investigation into the 2014 Malaysian Airlines crash over Ukraine.The Dutch allegations came as British officials blamed Russia’s GRU for allegedly “brazen” activities worldwide the globe and for trying to cover up its alleged participation in the nerve agent poisoning of an ex-spy and the downing of a Malaysia Airlines plane over Ukraine. MH17. Russia has consistently denied involvement in the events.Dutch Defence Minister Ank Bijleveld said that the GRU’s alleged hacking attempts on the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons took place in April and were disrupted by authorities. Four Russian intelligence officers were immediately expelled from the Netherlands, she said.Speaking about Russia’s hacking attempts into the MH17 crash investigation, she said: “We have been aware of the interest of Russian intelligence services in this investigation and have taken appropriate measures.”“We remain very alert about this,” she said.Britain’s ambassador to the Netherlands, Peter Wilson, said the GRU would no longer be allowed to act with impunity. Britain blames the secretive military intelligence unit for the nerve agent attack in March on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, in the English city of Salisbury.He said Russia’s actions against the Netherlands-based OPCW came as the agency was conducting an independent analysis of the nerve agent used against the Skripals.Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova dismissed the new accusations Thursday, calling them “big fantasies.”Earlier, British Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson branded a series of global cyberattacks blamed on Russia as the reckless actions of a “pariah state,” saying that the U.K. and its NATO allies would uncover such activities in the future.“Where Russia acts in an indiscriminate and reckless way, where they have done in terms of these cyberattacks, we will be exposing them,” Williamson told reporters in Brussels at talks with U.S. Defence Secretary Jim Mattis and their NATO counterparts.His remarks came after British and Australian officials said the Russian military intelligence unit GRU is behind a wave of global cybercrimes. Britain’s National Cyber Security Center says four new attacks are associated with the GRU as well as earlier cyberattacks.It cites attacks on the World Anti-Doping Agency, Ukrainian transport systems, the 2016 U.S. presidential race and others as very likely the work of the GRU.“We are not going to be backward leaning. We are going to actually make it clear that where Russia acts, we are going to be exposing that action,” Williamson said.“This is not the actions of a great power. This is the actions of a pariah state, and we will continue working with allies to isolate them; make them understand they cannot continue to conduct themselves in such a way,” he said.Earlier, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Foreign Minister Marise Payne issued a joint statement that Australian intelligence agencies agreed that GRU “is responsible for this pattern of malicious cyber activity.” They said Australia wasn’t significantly impacted, but the cyberattacks caused economic damage and disrupted civilian infrastructure in other places.___This story has been corrected to show the chemical weapons watchdog is an international, not United Nations agency.__Gregory Katz in London and Raf Casert in Brussels contributed to this report.last_img read more

DeMo ED seizes 146 kg gold jewellery worth over Rs 82 cr


first_imgNew Delhi: About 146 kg of gold jewellery worth over Rs 82 crore has been seized by the ED after it raided the premises of a Hyderabad-based jewellery group and its associates in connection with a post demonetisation money laundering case, the agency said Thursday. It said the searches were conducted at the showrooms of Musaddilal Jewellers at Hyderabad and Vijaywada, its promoter Kailash Gupta, a company named Balaji Gold and its partner Pavan Agarwal, another company Ashta Laxmi Gold, its proprietor Neel Sunder Tharad and chartered accountant Sanjay Sarda over the last few days.

The agency had filed a criminal case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) against these people based on an FIR of the Telangana Police and a complaint of the Income Tax Department for “blatantly misusing the scheme of demonetisation by illegally depositing huge amounts of unaccounted demonetised cash in their accounts.” Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K “For this purpose, they (accused) fraudulently created around 5,200 back-dated fabricated advance sale receipts dated November 8, 2016 for an amount less than Rs 2 lakh to avoid furnishing PAN (permanent account number) details,” the agency said. Describing the alleged modus operandi deployed in the case, the statement said that soon after after the notes ban was announced, the accused “illegally deposited Rs 110.85 crore in their bank account falsely claiming that within a few hours they had received advances of less than Rs 2 lakh each from more than 5,200 customers on the night of November 8, 2016 for purchase of gold and jewellery from their firms”. The ED said all these invoices were “bogus.” It also analysed CCTV footage of the firms’ offices and that of the neighbourhood that showed that “no such activity” of purchase of gold was carried out during that period. It said that out of the total Rs 110.85 crore alleged illegal funds, about Rs 80 crore was transferred to the bank accounts of various gold and bullion dealers like Ashta Lakshmi Gold, Shri Balaji Gold and others on the pretext of purchase of gold. “The accused have admitted that they created fake sale invoices. The accused failed to give any satisfactory account of the source of this illegal cash and also failed to provide the details of the accounts regarding the utilisation of about 270 kg of gold purchased out of this money,” the ED alleged. The demonetisation of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 was declared by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the night of November 8, 2016.last_img read more
