This new proven method was expected to hopefully interest more people in learning the techniques.“Studies show that performing proper chest compressions alone yields the same results that traditional CPR was thought to do. It’s not the long, complex and time consuming course that people used to have to take.,” explained Jennifer Waldron, Huntington Hospital’s Disaster Program Manager.The energetic staff and firefighters made sure that learning the proper chest compression techniques were done to the beat of “Stayin’ Alive” that was blasting through the sound system. This allowed participants to feel the quick rhythm required to effectively treat a victim of cardiac arrest for a minimum of sixty seconds at best.According to Huntington Hospital’s Pre-Hospital Care Coordinator Jenny Vanslyke,performing chest compressions alone can double or even triple a person’s chance of being revived in a cardiac situation.“When only ten percent of cardiac arrests survive today — it’s a huge improvement,” said Vanslyke.“Sidewalk CPR” is a nationwide event that is sponsored by the American Heart Association. Los Angeles County organizations from all over participated in the hands on public training just like the one at Paseo Colorado.“It’s happening all over Los Angeles County today so most fire departments, hospitals and clinics are participating,” said Vanslyke.Los Angeles County aims to reach out to a wide demographic to ensure people have the necessary skills to save one’s life, which is more times than not someone they know and care about.The eventual goal is to re-introduce this training into schools to properly equip the youth with life saving skills that will stay with them throughout their lives.“About eighty percent of sudden cardiac arrests occur at home so for many people it’s usually a loved one’s life you’re saving. Teaching people when they’re young makes a big difference, but it’s never too late to learn,” said Waldron.If you find someone who is in a cardiac arrest call 911 and immediately begin to perform chest compressions until first responders arrive.To learn more information about CPR and to find a training center near you, visit www.heart.org.center_img Community News “Sidewalk CPR” Pop-up Training at Paseo Colorado Proves the Life-Saving Technique is Easy to Learn Story and Photography by BRANDON VILLALOVOS Published on Thursday, June 2, 2016 | 8:33 pm Business News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Community News Top of the News Subscribelast_img read more

Rates hike scare for retailers

first_imgPrint A REVALUATION of commercial rates in Limerick city could see some retailers paying more, depending on the location of their business and its rentable value.Despite a dramatic fall in rents, this will not necessarily translate into a reduction in rates, as some property owners will have to make up the deficit, from those whose rates are lowered or who cannot pay.The Limerick Post has learned that under the national programme to revalue all commercial property, work began on valuing Limerick properties in March of this year.However, a local ratepayer highlighted that people in upward-only lease reviews, who cannot renegotiate their rates’ could be penalised further.“There will also be no incentive to maintain or do up properties as this will be reflected in an increase in rent”, said the ratepayer.The new system will see the rentable value of the property multiplied by the annual rate on valuation (ARV), as set by the local authority, based on the revenue it needs to raise for the year.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Conceding that there will be winners and losers in the process, Patrick Conroy of the Valuation Office, speaking to the Limerick Post ahead of a presentation given at the National Franchise Centre this Wednesday said:“The aim is to redistribute the burden to achieve more equity and fairness by capturing the market at the most appropriate valuation date.“The rental of a property is already based on the success and footfall in the area in which it’s located, and now rates will be on the same basis. If one street falls off in value the rates will fall, whereas there will be an increase on busy streets.“We don’t just make it up – all the details we collect from businesses will go to our market analysis unit”.He stressed that the local authority will gain no increase in revenue.“What they are entitled to collect has been capped and will remain the same”.Meanwhile, Siobhan Murphy of GVA Donal O’Buachalla property consultants who deal in valuations said that some ratepayers could face an increase of up to 100%.“People might be expecting a reduction in rates but in reality they could be making up for a decrease granted for others,” she told the Limerick Post.Explaining that with the council having to collect a fixed amount, there could be a ‘buffer’ of up to 20% involved to allow for non-collection, Ms Murphy added:“It’s early to tell what the effects will be as only three out of 88 areas have had the new multipliers applied to date, despite the revaluation being ordered in 2005”.In the completed areas of Fingal, Dun Laoghaire and South Dublin the local authority multiplier ranged from 0.15 to 0.17, based on a 2005 valuation. It is expected this will be higher in Limerick due to a more dramatic decrease in rents .“Ratepayers will have just 28 days to submit representations. if unhappy with the new valuation certificate,” said Ms Murphy.An amendment bill is currently in place to hurry up the process and, should this be passed, will mean the removal of the right to internal appeal.A right to appeal to the Valuation Tribunal will remain and final valuation certificates will be issued in early December 2014 with the new valuation list coming into effect from January 1, 2015.

Croatia will be ready for France in World Cup final, says coach Dalic

first_img0Shares0000Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic with skipper Luka Modric during their extra-time win over England © AFP / Mladen ANTONOVMOSCOW, Russian Federation, Jul 12 – Ecstatic Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic is confident tiredness will not be an issue for his side when they face France in the World Cup final despite once again coming through extra time to beat England on Wednesday.Croatia came from behind to win 2-1 in the semi-final clash in Moscow, with Mario Mandzukic claiming the winner in the 109th minute after Ivan Perisic had earlier cancelled out Kieran Trippier’s free-kick opener. Dalic’s side were clearly exhausted, but they managed to fight on to the end of two hours of gripping football to take the country of just over four million people into the final for the first time.However, the biggest concern looking ahead to Sunday’s game is bound to be fatigue, with Croatia having also required extra time and penalties to come through ties against Denmark and hosts Russia in the past two weeks.France will have had 24 hours longer to prepare for the game after edging out Belgium 1-0 in 90 minutes in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday.“This is fantastic. Two players played with half a leg, but it didn’t show. In extra-time nobody wanted to be substituted. This shows character and is what makes me proud. Nobody gave up,” said Dalic, whose team have played the equivalent of one match more than the French.“We prepared to get to the final and we want to play it. Going to extra-time might be a problem along with the fact France have had an extra day to recover but there will be no excuses,” he added.“We have to play as if this were the first game in this tournament.”Domagoj Vida and Mario Mandzukic let the young ones join in the post-match celebrations on the Luzhniki pitch © AFP / YURI CORTEZNo team has ever made it to the World Cup final after going to extra-time in all three prior knockout rounds — England twice won in extra-time in 1990 before losing on penalties to West Germany in the semi-finals.Dalic was only appointed as Croatia coach towards the end of their qualifying campaign, leading them to Russia via a play-off win against Greece.– ‘Better in all aspects’ –He described France as a “top-drawer team with fantastic players”, but his own side have earned their place in the final, their victory over England coming after they earlier destroyed Lionel Messi and Argentina with a 3-0 win in the group stage.Luka Modric has been inspirational throughout their run, yet there were numerous outstanding performances at the Luzhniki Stadium as Croatia recovered from a shaky opening half hour.Among the best was Marcelo Brozovic, the Inter Milan midfielder brought into the line-up to provide extra steel in front of the defence.“We were the better team in all aspects of the game,” said Dalic.“We played better than we did against Argentina. I told the players before the game there was no pressure — we have reached the semi-finals, enjoy your football and this was exactly what we did.”Croatia now have the chance to take revenge on France after losing 2-1 in Paris when the sides met in the semi-finals back in 1998 — Dalic travelled to that World Cup as a fan.With such a modest population, they are the smallest country to get to a World Cup final since Uruguay back in 1950, and in the modern game it is a staggering achievement.“For Croatian football and Croatia as a country this is history being written,” said the 51-year-old Dalic.“We are going to play England in the League of Nations (in October) and we don’t have a proper stadium to play that game. But we have our hearts, our pride and our players and that is what is really important to us.”He will just be hoping that all of them are fit enough for one last effort against a fearsome French side.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

3 critical challenges your business incubator should solve

first_imgTo develop an idea into a business, incubation seems to be the new industry “normal.” There are thousands of incubators worldwide and each year that number is continuing to grow. There are private, public and corporate incubators, many with a distinct focus on local economies, global, communities, or a specific vertical.At this point, it sounds like variations of ice cream. Over 9,000 flavors, all around the world. If there’s incubation happening, it’s because there is a demand from companies, and because the companies that incubate probably accelerate beyond their competition.Incubators originated in New York during the late 1950s as co-working spaces offering affordable office space and shared resources to local entrepreneurs. As they evolved, incubators began providing mentor advice in the mid-1980s. By the mid-2000s we saw explosive growth when a new wave of incubators including 500 Startups, Techstars, Y Combinator all provided access to exclusive networks and investors.Combined with crowdfunding, incubation is now seen as the royal path towards venture capital investment. Going down this path will provide you with a cheaper and faster route to a successful round of financing.All is sound and clear. Or is it?Let’s take a step back and start with what it mean to “incubate.” To incubate means “to cause or aid the development of an idea.” Notice, that a company’s stage is not mentioned in the definition. More recently there has been a pushback on joining incubators due to a feeling to late-stage for them. But as entrepreneurs, we always need support and to be incubating what we do. Incubation plays a significant role in the developmental success of our companies.Now back to the why. Over 90% of startups will fail to make it past their first round of financing or being able to generate revenue. Only 10% have a chance to survive beyond and push forward on developing a company; a chance, not a guarantee. Today ninety percent is high, but we can see that number decline as more entrepreneurs take advantage of programs like incubators.But to do so as entrepreneurs, you need to be aware of the drawbacks with current structures of incubation programs.#1: PaceTraditional incubation programs today can be long and drawn out, lasting anywhere from 4-12+ months. During that time you’re left on your own with little action in between. This duration provides a disservice to the entrepreneurs involved by not helping them quickly validate their idea early enough so that decisions can be to more forward or pivot to another direction. Instead, this crawling pace encourages slow company growth and development leading towards a higher likelihood of failure.#2: AttentionMost incubation programs today work with a cohort size of 50-100+ startups. This is in part due to the nature of how they generate revenue (yes, they’re a business too) have to bet on a large number of startups to ensure they see a profitable return. Which means you become a number. Sadly, this is a structure built for fast winners, and everyone else falls between leaving you on your own, little personal support, or being given a helping hand.#3. NetworkThis is what most entrepreneurs fail to truly capitalize on while a part of an incubator program today. Good programs survive and thrive on their strong networks of mentors and investors who each have given their time and resources for support. But most programs fail to help entrepreneurs understand the network’s value and entrepreneurs fail to capitalize and to build meaningful relationships with those inside the network. This leads to a higher chance of failure because when trouble arises entrepreneurs look back for attention from their program or hesitate on a pivot and take instead are on the path of a slow death.Introducing the Alpha incubator programNow almost forty years after the first incubator launch, we enter the fourth wave of incubators with a new program that is truly supportive and begins to stack the deck back in favor of entrepreneurs. Welcome the ReadWrite Labs Alpha program.The Alpha program is built with the sole purpose of providing the initial support to entrepreneurs who are getting started, a little stuck on their next step or looking to enter the San Francisco / Silicon Valley ecosystem. Alpha’s focus is on Internet of Things (IoT) startups and provides office space in downtown San Francisco along with access to an exclusive global network of mentors, investors and corporate partners.
