Julian Rubalcava, Martin Rubalcava, Katrina Savage and Jazzmen DeLa Cruz were also honored for following suspects in armed robbery at a video store in El Monte.

The American Red Cross recognized 11 area residents for their courage Friday at the San Gabriel Pomona Valley Chapter’s first Hometown Heroes Celebration. Among the honorees at the banquet at the San Gabriel Hilton in San Gabriel were Norma Perez, a Pasadena police dispatcher, whose crisis negotiation skills helped stop a man from jumping to his death from a building, and Jodi Cassutt, who noticed an elderly man lying at the bottom of a local YMCA pool, pulled him out and gave him CPR. Yesenia Alaniz and Marco and Richard Maldonado of Baldwin Park each received honors for assisting in an attempted rape that occurred this year in El Monte. The three saw a 19-year-old victim screaming for help in the street and stopped to help. “She got in our car and my brother took off after the guy so I started to chase after him too,” Richard Maldonado, 19, said. “I had on my security belt so I grabbed my cuffs and cuffed him right there.” The suspect pleaded guilty and was sentenced to nine years in prison, officials said. Ben Green, the chapter’s chief executive officer, said the event was the first of its kind but may be repeated in years to come. “This is a great way to focus on the people out there who are doing great things on a volunteer basis and recognize them for it,” Green said. David Yu, of Walnut, was also honored as the Spirit of the Red Cross honoree for his humanitarian efforts and Kerry Manwaring for donating 232 units of platelets to the Pasadena Red Cross Donor Center.

The strange-looking creature which had four sharps claws washed up on a Donegal beach.A reader has appealed for help in trying to identify a “cat-like creature” which she came across on a West Donegal beach.The woman came across the strange discovery on the beach at Bunbeg.“It looks really strange. I could not make out what it was but the fur and claws looked like something that should be in a zoo like a big wild cat. “It was about 4ft in length as you see it but it looks all folded up and twisted,” said the woman.If any of our readers have come across similar creatures or can suggest what exactly this creature in, please get in touch.LARGE CAT-LIKE CREATURE WASHED UP ON DONEGAL BEACH was last modified: July 14th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Bunbegm beachclawscreaturedonegal
Prior to becoming a Bulldog, junior forward T.J. Thomas (Stone Mountain, Ga.), attended Tyler Junior College. During his career with the Braves 2015-2016, he averaged 7.7 points per game and led the team in rebounds and blocks. What does it mean to play Division I basketball?”Playing at a D1 school is a really good experience. When you love basketball all of your life, it’s the dream you dream of. It’s a blessing to have the opportunity to play here.”What made you decide to attend Drake?”My junior college coach had a good connection with the coaching staff at Drake. He persuaded me to visit and I liked the school and we have great coaches. I was looking at a couple of other schools that were flirting with me throughout the year, but Drake was the one that was the most consistent.”What are some aspects of Drake and the basketball program you enjoy?”When it came to basketball, I liked the challenge. Coming in, I knew we were rebuilding the program, so I was up for the challenge.”How did you develop a love of basketball?”I started playing basketball when I was younger. I never looked at it like a big deal. I would just go outside and play for fun with all of my other cousins and family. My favorite part about basketball is being on the court. When you’re on the court you don’t worry about anything else. You could say it’s like therapy.”What are you majoring in and how do you plan to use that degree in the future?”I’m majoring in sociology. I’m interested in that major because as a kid I liked to observe and see how people act. Sociology definitely helps me understand how people act in a more business-like aspect. I’m a big dreamer and a degree in sociology will help me get a job in any field I feel. I could be in the business field, film or design, anything. My dream job is, of course, basketball, but I also want to make music and art and maybe own my own business.What other activities do you participate in off the court?”Music, art and nature. I don’t play instruments but with the technology today, I know how to put music together electronically and I sing and rap. I like all kinds of music. With art, I mostly draw. I’m really just getting back into drawing. I also enjoy poetry. I’ve written it since I was young.” What are you looking forward to this season?”I’m looking forward to winning. I’m excited because I know we have the capability to make some noise through the end of the year and I’m ready to help us do it.”Print Friendly Version

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Many Ohio livestock were unable to apply their normal amounts of manure last fall due to wet weather and a delayed harvest season. As a result, many producers need to haul manure this spring before the planting season.The ammonium nitrogen and a portion of the organic nitrogen contained in spring applied manure are generally available for the growing crop. According to OSU Extension bulletin 604, 50 to 75 percent of the ammonia portion of the nitrogen could be captured if the manure is injected during application or incorporated within one day if surface applied. Approximately one-third of the organic portion of the manure nitrogen will be available regardless of whether the manure is incorporated or not.Table 16, OSU Extension Bulletin 604Ammonium N AvailableOrganic N Available Time of Application Days Until Incorporated NH4ON Date Days50%33%March – Aprilless than 325%33%March – Aprilgreater than 375%33%April – Juneless than 125% 33%April – June greater than 1Ohio State University Extension has conducted manure research on growing crops for several years in an effort to make better use of the available nutrients.The manure research trial in Table 1 was conducted over four years at the Northwest Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center’s Hoytville location. The swine manure application rate was 5,000 gallons per acre to get 200 units of available nitrogen. The dairy manure application rate was 13,577 gallons per acre to get 130 units of nitrogen. The dairy treatments received additional nitrogen as incorporated 28% UAN just prior to the manure application to reach the 200 unit goal. The 28% UAN treatments also received 200 units of nitrogen.Pre-emergent applications of 28% UAN, swine manure or dairy manure were made within five days of corn planting. Post-emergent applications of 28% UAN, swine manure and dairy manure were made at the V3 stage of corn growth. All manure applications were made with a 5,200 gallon tanker and Dietrich tool bar with the incorporated manure placed at a five inch depth. Surface manure was applied by using the Dietrich toolbar held just above ground level.Table 1. 2011 – 2014 Manure on Corn Research Plots OARDC Northwest Branch20112012201320144 year average bu/ac bu/ac bu/ac bu/ac bu/acPre-emergent treatmentsIncorporated 28%UAN138.1111.5184.6145.1144.8Incorporated swine manure 191.1 128.6 191.8 146.5 164.7Surface applied swine manure 180.9 109.5 175.7 137.2 150.8Incorporated dairy manure + 28%UAN 190.1 132.0 185.4 166.1 168.4Surface applied dairy manure + 28%UAN 184.5 97.0 166.0 141.9 147.4Post-emergent treatmentsIncorporated 28%UAN 132.7 116.0 181.9 140.9 142.9Incorporated swine manure 180.8 138.4 196.7 139.9 164.0Surface applied swine manure 178.0 116.4 188.0 115.6 149.5Incorporated dairy manure + 28%UAN 180.0 138.8 192.0 156.9 166.9Surface applied dairy manure + 28%UAN 170.5 101.6 181.5 125.3 144.7Zero nitrogen check 74.4 62.6 82.0 67.0 71.5Corn sidedress plots involving the use of a drag hose to apply the manure were conducted in 2014 and will be again in 2015.

Focus on value over giving away the store. The odds of business survival are not stacked in your favor. Even the most optimistic business leader cannot argue with the available statistics about business survival rates.According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, two-thirds of all businesses make it at least two years while half of all businesses make it to their fifth anniversary. It’s only one-third of all businesses that can celebrate a decade.The good news is that the longer your business has been around, the more likely it will stay that way. Those first few years in business seem to be the hardest, so if you can just get through them, you may have built something that can last generations.When the Unexpected HappensThat’s not to say that things can’t go very wrong at any time however. For example, a data breach could lead to huge fines and even a lawsuit. A natural disaster could wipe out your livelihood. These types of unexpected events can harm even the strongest of businesses and leave a company on the verge of bankruptcy.Many companies have hovered near bankruptcy, including Apple, IBM, GM, Lego, and even Starbucks. Countless smaller brands and startups alike have experienced this, including famous individuals like Stan Lee, Walt Disney and Abraham Lincoln.Internet marketing leader Jerry Banfield is one of these individuals. “I got so many clients that I was literally taking people in faster than I could handle them. Then, my personal life started going downhill. I ran my business into ruin by maxing out all my business credit cards.”Amazingly, these companies and individuals turned it around and scaled their businesses to greater heights than they ever had before.Here are 7 real-world business strategies that founders can leverage to scale their businesses even if they’ve had a near bankruptcy: Don’t be in business just to make money. Bart Schachter The mantra that a company is only in business to make money is no longer popular today. Yes, there has to be cash flow to keep the ship afloat. But, it shouldn’t be the sole purpose of the enterprise.Many of today’s customers want to know that you are doing something good with those profits, not just lining pockets or paying bills. Doing good for others and paying it forward can provide a significant return that will continue to build your brand and trust in the eyes of your prospects.Get involved in a cause you feel passionate about, donate time or money, and encourage your audience to learn and get involved with that same cause. This was an important lesson that Banfield learned during the many times he had to rebuild his Internet marketing business.“The problem was that I discovered what I was offering in terms of services for social media advertising were already being replicated by other agencies. Or, some customers had even figured out how to handle it themselves.To stop the income from evaporating, he kept learning new skills. Then he focused on where to apply those skills to work for an audience struggling with key problems. For leaders, that means continuing to scan and listen to the market to identify those areas. Then, it’s about taking that vision, acting on it, and communicating what you do differently. Ask customers before assuming you are doing things right. Choose quality over quantity. Lego is a prime example of this reality. It’s a company that pleased generations of kids and parents until around 2007 when many of it’s products seemed to be slipping in quality and it had lost some of the magic that made it what it was. The company continued to assume it was doing everything right until the financials said otherwise.When the company started making Lego sets that customers told them they wanted, revenue came back. The same goes with any other brand. Listening to customers needs and wants and then delivering on those is the best strategy a leader can follow. In the rush to amp up revenue, many business owners are tempted to use an “any means necessary” approach that often either violates rules or exploits loopholes.Banfield learned this the hard way on Google, Facebook, and Udemy where he initially disregarded site policies completely. He then started following rules more carefully, but still exploited loopholes and committed minor policy violations.The problem is that these strategies may work in the short term, but eventually site administrators catch on. Banfield was no exception, as he suffered suspensions and account bans just when business started to pick up again.Instead, you should aim for steady and consistent growth from the beginning. Learn how to use sites and services effectively within their frameworks. Bans become far less likely, and lifetime success tends to be exponentially higher compared to quick money schemes that collapse. Leaders can also go wrong when they think they should create a massive portfolio of products or services. They want to be everything to everybody. However, like with multi-tasking, it leads to doing a lot of things not so well.If you’ve ever watched one of those shows where an expert comes in to a restaurant to turn it around, you know that one of the first things they change is the menu. They often downsize it from a book to a page or two.The reason is that the kitchen staff can do a much better job quality-wise with a few key dishes than they can preparing 100 items. This is why restaurants like In-N-Out Burger are so popular. They have just a few items, but those items beat out most other hamburger joints easily.The same goes with that business you are trying to scale back up. Pick those products or services that you know will deliver the best quality and experience. Stick with those and you’ll go far. What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Bart Schachter is an investor, operator, and tech affectionado, with a passion for business operations, team building, product design, finance, and deal making. Bart has been an entrepreneur, VC, corporate executive, and turn-around operator. He lives in San Francisco and all his view are his own. Aim for steady growth instead of fast success. In a panic to get their ship financially righted, a leader may try to use freebies and highly reduced merchandise or services to win customers quickly. The strategy is that more people will come to get the free stuff and help build the business back up. However, what happens is that you essentially mainly attract the type of customer you don’t want: the one that comes for the free stuff, and moves on to the next company that is using a similar strategy.Instead, think about how Apple came back from the brink. Steve Jobs and his team did not offer cheap products. Instead, they turned the brand into an exclusive must-have through marketing and by creating something unique. Then, they unapologetically priced those exclusive products at higher values because they were perceived as cool and innovative. Be transparent with what you are doing. Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces It may be easy for some leaders to decide they should get crafty in order to rake in those quick bucks. After all, there are many scams or ways to fool customers that can fasttrack a company to better financial results. Some examples of this may include unnecessary repairs, fake fans on social media or re-sold leads.However, these methods usually don’t bring long-term, stable success or return customers. In most cases people figure out that the brand they trusted may not be following the letter of the law or isn’t being entirely honest or ethical in its business practices.You might think it will take longer to bounce back by being transparent in everything you do. But the new reality is that it could be exactly what you need to get and keep customers for the long term. If you can prove your trustworthiness, savvy customers will see it and appreciate it.Companies that have been less than transparent may have to work twice as hard to regain trust. Facebook is a current example, using TV ads to essentially beg forgiveness for its lack of data transparency. Wells Fargo’s recent sales practices also significantly harmed that bank’s reputation and it’s still trying to win back lost customers.
