If left unaltered, unowned feral and stray cats produce large quantities of unwanted kittens each spring, flooding local animal shelters and leading to higher euthanasia rates. By taking a proactive approach and getting the cats fixed now, the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA will help lessen the impact of the coming kitten season.Spaying and neutering is one of the most effective ways to reduce the homeless pet population and is safe for kittens as young as eight to 10 weeks old, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association. Spaying a female cat before the first heat cycle can be beneficial, improving the health of the cat by reducing the risk of certain reproductive cancers and infections.“Female cats can have as many as three litters a year, and kittens can breed as young as four months old,” says Steve McNall, president/CEO of the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA. “Most people don’t want to see the cats they’re feeding get pregnant over and over again, so our “Community Cat” campaign will serve as a gentle reminder to caretakers of free-roaming cat colonies to catch and sterilize their cats.”This special free rate is available to all residents of Arcadia, Bradbury, Glendale, La Cañada Flintridge, Monrovia, Pasadena, San Marino, Sierra Madre and South Pasadena. Residents feeding free-roaming cats who wish to take advantage of this offer must mention the “Community Cat” campaign when scheduling their appointment. Appointments are based on availability.

The webinar, entitled “California Wildfires: A Way Forward,” explores at length the Carr and Mendocino Complex Fires from 2017, the damage the fires caused to more than 10,000 structures. The webinar looks back as well as forward, considering next steps in reconstruction after what has occurred and increasing resilience to future fires.Maiclaire Bolton-Smith, a Sr. Leader for Research and Content at CoreLogic, hosted the webinar. She touched on the catastrophe in Mendocino County before detailing the worst of the 2017 wildfires, especially the extent of damage in Tubbs County. Howard Kunst, a Principal and Chief Actuary of Science and Analytics at CoreLogic, gave a statistical perspective on the fires, showing how even though the amount of acreage destroyed in fires has increased in relation to the number of overall fires started. Whereas the five-year average between 2012 and 2016 was 8,363 fires with 691,299 acres destroyed, in 2017 a total of 9,560 fires caused more than 1.2 million acres worth of damage. Kunst suggests that models have obtained a high enough degree of accuracy regulations based on their predictions will be more commonly enacted. One of these is the requirement going into effect July 2019 that mandates insurance companies discuss the likelihood of fires to customers with residential properties, as well as various strategies and costs of reconstruction. Guy Kopperud, a Principal of Industry Solutions with CoreLogic, focused his discussion on reconstruction and valuation. Kopperud dilated on how the heated market in California continues to interfere with reconstruction efforts, and how the surge in California housing demand affects contractors and builders in the state. Rodney Griffin, Sr. Leader of Product Management and Services, spoke about resilience to future fires and strategies for minimizing damage in future disasters. These include fire-resistance ratings for construction being promoted as well as construction with fire-resistant materials. Griffin indicates that the costs of building with resilient materials can be justified by the bottom line and reduction in loss potential. Lastly, Tom Larson, a Principal in Industry Solutions closes with a focus on managing wildfire risk in the future, in the process highlighting how fires in 2017 challenged current zonation, and how different models for zoning could help manage risk. Larson shows how if one also accounts for infrequent high winds and the latest fuel and topography models, risks can be minimized. Considering that more than 1.7 million homes, or 13 percent of the total 13.6 million California homes, remain at risk today.

OnTheMarket says it has reached a new high in the number of agents listing with the portal.Its CEO Ian Springett says 10,500 sales and letting agent branches now list on its service, an almost doubling of its tally since it went public on the AIM stockmarket in February.This pushes the company’s market share of all UK branches to 57%, helped by its deal structure of free introductory trial offers for agents who sign. OTM says it will later convert these agents to full subscriptions.The next six to 12 months therefore will be an ultimate ‘make or break’ test of both the OnTheMarket offering and of some agents’ willingness to pay for three portals.Independents“As our property stock continues to rise and traffic increases in response to our recent marketing push, we are receiving positive feedback from more and more agents across the country about the level of good quality leads we provide,” says Springett (pictured, below),“Many agents are relatively small, family-run, independent businesses, which want to see greater value for money from portals, as well as a real choice for consumers when it comes to searching for property.“As an agent-backed business, OnTheMarket’s strategy allows agents to benefit through fair, sustainable pricing and the ability to invest in, and benefit from, the success of their portal, while keeping agents at the heart of each transaction to leverage their local knowledge and expertise.”Read more latest news about OTM.Ian Springett OnTheMarket OTM springett August 24, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

He’s Got Serious Stage Acting ChopsDuring his senior year at LaGuardia High School, Elgort made his professional stage debut opposite After Midnight’s Adriane Lenox and Gilmore Girls star Alexis Bledel in the Manhattan Theatre Club production of Regrets. He and the cast reportedly danced to Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough” in their dressing rooms, which we seriously need video footage of. He Rocked LaGuardia High SchoolWhile attending the prestigious performing arts high school, Elgort was already developing his teen heartthrob status. He made Tracy Turnblad swoon as Link Larkin in Hairspray, and played smooth high-roller Sky Masterson in Guys and Dolls, all before getting his high school diploma. Ansel Elgort He Spent Summers at Stagedoor ManorBefore he was Ansel Elgort, movie star, he was “Collins, Tom Collins,” in the Stagedoor Manor production of Rent in 2011. (He spent seven years at the legendary summer camp!) “I’ll Cover You: Reprise” is a tough song to nail, but Elgort does it in spades in this emotional rendition—plus, he can riff! Twenty-year-old Ansel Elgort is delivering one hell of a breakout performance in the new movie The Fault In Our Stars—his heartbreaking turn as Augustus Waters in the adaptation of John Green’s novel had us swooning, laughing and of course, weeping uncontrollably for hours. After his stellar performances in Fault and as Caleb in Divergent, Elgort is sure to have his pick of high-profile projects to choose from. But we think—no, know—he should star in a musical next. We’ve dug up some fantastic clips of Elgort singing, dancing and acting on stage that you really need to see. Check out Elgort in action, then tell us which stage roles you’d like to see him play in the comments below! He Can Dance (No, Really Dance)Did we mention that in addition to being talented and gorgeous, Elgort also has a talented and gorgeous girlfriend? The star is head over heels for aspiring dancer Violetta Komyshan, whom he met at LaGuardia. The duo danced together in this gorgeous video for Amanda Uprichard’s Spring ’13 collection—awww, can they be any more adorable? View Comments
View Comments Into the Woods Show Closed This production ended its run on April 12, 2015 You wish to go to the Festival? Off-Broadway’s the place to be! The Roundabout revival of Into the Woods opens officially on January 22. Directed by Noah Brody and Ben Steinfeld, the stripped down production from Fiasco Theater will run through March 22 at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. Related Shows The cast features Brody and Steinfeld along with Jessie Austrian, Paul L. Coffey, Andy Grotelueschen, Liz Hayes, Claire Karpen, Jennifer Mudge, Patrick Mulryan and Emily Young. All the actors are reprising their roles in the staging, which has played both at New Jersey’s McCarter Theatre Center and the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego. The beloved re-imagining of fairy tales centers on a childless Baker and his wife, who embark on a quest to find the four items required to break a witch’s spell: the cow as white as milk, the cape as red as blood, the hair as yellow as corn, and the slipper as pure as gold. The new production ditches the original orchestrations for a single piano, with the performers chiming in with everything from a bassoon to a waterphone.
(CIDRAP Business Source Osterholm Briefing) – The media may have deflected their focused attention away from the novel H1N1 influenza virus (what they’ve called swine flu) for the moment, but I know you’re still on high alert, and with good reason.So let’s talk about what’s reasonable. Perhaps the best guiding principle to keep in mind is that of proportional response. Right now, this virus is behaving like seasonal influenza. So our decisions need to be proportionate to the risk. If we invoke extreme measures when they are not warranted, we lose all credibility for when the situation truly calls for such measures. So keep that top of mind as we go into the next week.TravelingMuch ado has been made over Vice President Joe Biden’s remark on the “Today” show suggesting he wouldn’t encourage his family to travel on planes or subways, which did not jibe with official government advice and was quickly corrected by his spokesperson.But was the vice president wrong? Was his response in proportional to the current risk? Yes, he was wrong because his response was not in proportion. Had there been tens of thousands of people dying at the moment, however, he might well have been right. Will the virus continue to behave like a seasonal strain? I’m afraid the answer is the one I’ve recommended we practice: We don’t know yet. But the VP’s faux pas reminds us of how important our credibility is and how our responses must be carefully measured.I know that you’re hearing questions about business travel right now. Should employees plan to go to big conventions this month or next, for example? Current guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is sound. Use it to make your best judgment.And what if an employee is anxious about traveling and expresses that concern? First, realize that in current economic times, it took courage for the employee to raise the question. The best risk communicators, says expert Peter M. Sandman, PhD, remind people about the range of options. Share with worried employees the CDC stance, show them the recommendations posted right on the Source page. Talk about minimum protection, and if that’s not enough to quell worries, discuss what even stronger precautions could look like.After you’ve shared all the options and the employee just can’t cope with the idea of travel, then I’d encourage you to cut your employee some slack. It’s far better in the long term, and you have options, too, like sending someone else if you absolutely need this trip to happen.Know that we’ll keep you continually up to date about travel recommendations as the situation unfoldsDealing with the fallout from school closuresSeveral districts this week in places like Fort Worth and San Antonio shuttered schools after the novel H1N1 influenza virus was confirmed. And that has implications for you as parents scramble to take care of children or make other arrangements.Right or wrong? We don’t know yet. Remember that we haven’t watched a potential pandemic unfold like this in more than 30 years. Mistakes are going to be made, but this is a work in progress and a lesson in process. We’re learning and adjusting guidance as we go, and that’s the frame of mind we need right now—flexibility. Will more schools close? It’s likely, but we really have to take a look at what we’re accomplishing in terms of preventing transmission and severe disease by closing them. If closing schools doesn’t make a difference, then we have to ask if such actions are in proportion to the risk.Working smartI can’t let this week pass without making sure you know of a business practice I find impressive and would go so far as to say is promising. I know of a group of human resource professionals from multinational corporations who have been meeting regularly to share how they’re planning. Some of them might even be considered competitors. Thus, what they’ve accomplished is truly remarkable, especially as the pandemic alert levels have risen so quickly.They share without hesitation the questions they’re struggling with and share solutions that have worked. They have included a representative from the state’s health department who is able to keep their ideas grounded in what’s real and possible. What makes the process work so well is complete confidentiality. Just a one-hour phone call was enough to help one company rethink some communication it was going to send that would have put employees and the organization in an impossible fix. Imagine the hassle and expense that they saved. The group members have even decided to ramp up their 1-hour conference calls to 3 times a week, knowing that if nothing is pressing, they can cancel, but if they need each other, the time is held in reserve.This group was smart enough to get the initiative off the ground during the planning stage, so now their relationships are strong and mutual trust is a given. But it’s not too late to do the very same thing among your peers. Perhaps your chamber of commerce could facilitate. Please consider how much effort and expense you will save if you give this a try. We all need to work smart right now to keep up our stamina.A heads-upAs you enter the weekend, I want to make sure you know that the CIDRAP Source may be offline for a period of time on Sunday as technical experts at the university cope with a potential hot spot. If the site isn’t be available during this time, know that we will still send out alerts and e-mail communication if something warrants your attention.If the site is down, I’d encourage you to visit this CDC site for updates and Peter Sandman’s site for risk communication advice.Still to comeOur webinar this week and conversations we’ve had with you have raised many questions you’re struggling to answer. Among them are such issues as:Coping without a plan. How do you protect your business at this point?Masks and respirators. You’re coping with conflicting information and need some clarity.Antivirals and vaccine. How do you use antivirals now and how should they be used during a severe pandemic? Do we have enough? And what’s the straight story on vaccine manufacturing capacity and plans?Presenteeism. How do you deal with employees whose economic insecurity has them showing up at work when they should be home?Recovered workers. It’s unrealistic to think all employees will be tested for swine flu and given a clean bill of health from their physicians later, so how will you deal with returning workers and the worried well at work?Employees who cross the Mexican/US border daily. How can you realistically apply stay-at-home guidance for these workers?We will be addressing these questions and topics in the days to come, gathering the best guidance and real-world examples we can find.And finally, for the latest breaking news….The World Health Organization (WHO) reported 331 cases of swine influenza H1N1 in 11 countries as of 6 a.m. GMT today. The case numbers by country are United States, 109 (1 death) (these are yesterday’s totals); Mexico, 156 (9 deaths), Canada, 34; Spain, 13; United Kingdom, 8; New Zealand, 3; Germany, 3; Israel, 2; and 1 each in Austria, the Netherlands, and Switzerland. [WHO update 7]The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported 141 confirmed US cases in 19 states as of 11 a.m. ET today. New York leads the list with 50, followed by Texas, 28; South Carolina, 16, and California, 13. Other states have 4 or fewer cases. [CDC H1N1 flu page]The US government will buy 13 million treatment courses of antiviral drugs to battle the swine flu, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced last night. The new supplies will replace 11 million courses that HHS released to the states this week and add 2 million more, at a cost of $251 million, she said. She also said the government is sending 400,000 courses to Mexico. [HHS news release]Hospitals and clinics in some parts of the country, including New York, California, and Alabama, are seeing a surge of the worried well—patients who have minor symptoms but major worries about swine flu, the Associated Press (AP) reported today. For example, a pediatric hospital in San Diego is seeing up to 50% more patients than usual. [AP report]The first person in Mexico who became ill with what turned out to be the new flu virus got sick on Mar 17, according to an MMWR Dispatch from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The first outbreak was reported to the Pan American Health Organization Apr 12. Mexico had a total of 1,918 suspected cases from Mar 1 through Apr 30, of which 286 were probable and 97 were confirmed. [MMWR Dispatch]Nearly 300 schools nationwide were closed yesterday because of concern about the new virus, the Washington Post reported today. Most of the schools were in Texas, where all 147 schools in the Fort Worth district were closed for 10 days after one case was confirmed and three probable cases were reported.Hong Kong has imposed a 7-day quarantine on about 200 guests and staff members of a hotel where a Mexican man who tested positive for swine flu stayed, according to the ChannelNewsAsia website. Authorities were also trying to trace passengers who were on the man’s flight from Shanghai. A Hong Kong hotel was the launching pad for the international spread of SARS in 2003
