Thank you Recology Los Angeles and Whole Foods Market Arroyo Parkway in Pasadena for the incredible donation of over 10 tons of compost soil we received today for our new school biodynamic gardens at our Mendocino campus. Thanks to our amazing community partners we have nutrient-rich soil as we begin to prepare the 3,000+ square feet space for our students to learn and grow with. #biodynamicfarming #Waldorfeducation #community #pasadenawaldorf #gardens #compost”On Thursday, March 24, Whole Foods Market Arroyo Parkway in Pasadena will be donating 5% of their total net sales for the day, to support the creation of the new all-school learning biodynamic gardens at Pasadena Waldorf School. The garden site, approximately 5,000 square feet, sits on the school’s newly acquired 2nd campus on Mendocino Street in Altadena. The Mendocino Campus is currently home to the school’s preschool, and in the fall of 2016 will house the high school. Biodynamic agriculture is a form of alternative agriculture very similar to organic farming, founded by Rudolf Steiner, who also founded the first Waldorf School in 1919. Biodynamic agriculture arose out of a request by farmers in Europe who noticed degraded soil conditions and deterioration in the health and quality of crops and livestock resulting from the use of chemical fertilizers.The garden construction began in late January 2016 with the donation and delivery of over 10 tons of compost by Whole Foods’ composting partner Recology. Students and parents have been participating in preparing the grounds scattering the compost and creating berms filled with logs and branches that will maximize water retention. The vision for the garden is to be a source of learning for the students, provide food for the school’s aftercare snack program, and to host community workshops on topics ranging from composting to sustainable irrigation. And the popular Altadena restaurant Pizza of Venice has already committed to creating the “PWS Pizza” featuring seasonal produce from the garden.“5% Day demonstrates Whole Foods’ core value of serving and supporting local communities, and we greatly appreciate this partnership to benefit our school’s new biodynamic gardens,” says Pasadena Waldorf School Development Officer Jon Brody. “We have enjoyed a mutually beneficial community partnership with Whole Foods Arroyo for several years, including their in-kind support for our annual Elves’ Faire, and by our school promoting Whole Foods store events and activities that appeal to our families. Our community looks forward to participating in the 5% Day on March 24 and is extremely grateful for this support. All proceeds from the 5% Day will go directly to supporting the garden, including purchasing tools, building storage sheds, installing irrigation systems, and procuring trees and plants for the garden.”Popular internet-based grocery deliver service Instacart is also joining in their support for the biodynamic gardens by offering free delivery to Whole Foods Market Arroyo Parkway shoppers on all orders of $35 or more on March 24 using the code ‘5pctday’.“It is important to Whole Foods that we are more than just a place to shop for food, but rather are an active community partner that supports the local programs and organizations that align with our values and passions,” says Sarah Roberts, Whole Foods Market Metro Marketing Field Team Leader.Whole Foods Market Arroyo Parkway is located at 465 S. Arroyo Parkway, Pasadena. Hours on March 24th for the 5% Day are 7:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Milner’s late penalty maintains Reds’ perfect start

first_imgA bold and patient sequence of passing in the left-back area ended with Milner injecting verticality into the move with a superb left-footed ball down the line.Mane, temporarily back in his usual position down Liverpool’s left, surged clear of Jonny Evans and casually slotted home his 50th Premier League goal for the club on the occasion of his 100th top-flight appearance.The Senegalese could have added to that impressive tally quickly too, but his connection on Firmino’s cut-back was not clean enough to beat Schmeichel as the hosts ended the half strongly.Second halfSchmeichel was forced into action inside the opening minute of the second half, the Leicester goalkeeper parrying away Salah’s shot on the slide from Alexander-Arnold’s cross.A double one-two between Salah and Mane then appeared to have afforded the latter the task of scoring from close range, but Jonny Evans’ last-ditch tackle denied him.Liverpool’s search for a second was gathering momentum and Firmino’s wonderful first touch bought him space to shoot after collecting Alexander-Arnold’s punched pass forward, though the No.9 dragged his attempt wide.The Foxes, however, kept themselves in the game and Liverpool need Adrian’s alertness, the ‘keeper gathering at Jamie Vardy’s feet as the striker bore down on goal, to keep them in front midway through the half.Dennis Praet drove an effort wide from 20 yards after Andy Robertson had blasted straight at Schmeichel at the other end and, 10 minutes from time, Leicester drew level.Ayoze Perez slipped a through-ball into Maddison’s path and the midfielder’s low shot beat Adrian.There was to be late, late drama, though, as Milner sent Schmeichel the wrong way from the spot to spark delirious scenes of celebration inside Anfield.******SOURCE: LIVERPOOL FCShare on: WhatsApp Milner. PHOTO via @LFC Liverpool 2 Leicester 1Liverpool, UK | THE INDEPENDENT |  James Milner’s stoppage-time penalty extended Liverpool’s 100 per cent winning start to the Premier League season by earning a 2-1 victory over Leicester City at Anfield.The Reds took the lead five minutes before half-time through Sadio Mane’s 50th top-flight goal for the club, but James Maddison’s 80th-minute equaliser appeared to have snatched a draw for the visitors.However, Milner kept his cool from 12 yards after Marc Albrighton had felled Mane in the box deep into injury time to ensure Jürgen Klopp’s team head into the international break with eight wins from eight Premier League outings this term.Pos.

Harvey Elliott was also named among Liverpool’s substitutes.First halfA strategic tweak by Klopp saw Mohamed Salah start the game at centre-forward, with Mane on the right and Roberto Firmino on the left of Liverpool’s front three.And the No.11 had the game’s first sight of goal just four minutes in, rolling Caglar Soyuncu and attempting to steer a low shot into the far corner that was saved by Kasper Schmeichel.Brilliance from Trent Alexander-Arnold created a more presentable chance for the Reds in the 13th minute.The right-back nutmegged Ben Chilwell on the byline before standing up an inviting cross for an unmarked Milner at the back post, only for the captain to miscue his half-volley into the Kop.Leicester enjoyed their best spell of the half thereafter, although the visitors could not convert improved spells of pressure into goalscoring opportunities and Liverpool remained the more threatening team.Another fine delivery from Alexander-Arnold found a stretching Firmino, but the No.9’s volley cleared the crossbar. However, five minutes prior to the break, the Reds had their lead.last_img read more

Powered by Firework What started in the city of Wuhan in China, the novel Coronavirus, which has now turned into a pandemic, has spread into other countries, and the most devastated impact has been suffered by Italy. The European country has the highest number of deaths at 7503, with over 74,000 positive cases reported. While the country has been under lock down and every major sporting event is cancelled, experts have gone through a thorough analysis on what could possible be the factor behind such a huge below from the virus, and it turns out, the UEFA Champions League match between Atalanta and Valencia back in 19th February.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Getty/AFPMore than month as passed since the La Dea defeated Valencia 4-1 in the Round of 16 first leg match at the San Siro Stadium. Acording to reports from the Associated Press, more than 40,000 people from the city of Bergamo was present for the game, which has now turned into a graveyard with the highest number of deaths in the country.A total of over 7,000 Coronavirus cases have been registered in Bergamo, with at least 1,000 confirmed deaths, and has now been termed as the epicentre of the virus outbreak in Italy.Advertisement Just two days after the match, the first positive Coronavirus case was registered in the country, and which soon turned worse than imaginable, putting Italy into a nationwide lock down.“We were mid-February so we didn’t have the circumstances of what was happening,” said  Giorgio Gori, the Mayor of Bergamo.Advertisement “If it’s true what they’re saying that the virus was already circulating in Europe in January, then it’s very probable that 40,000 Bergamaschi in the stands of San Siro, all together, exchanged the virus between them,” Gori spoke to Foreign Press Association in Rome.The spectators from Bergamo gathered up in Milan after Atalanta’s home stadium, the Stadio Atleti Azzurri was rejected by UEFA as not meeting the standards for a Champions League match. Following the match, they availed several public transport to return, which has been pointed out to be a major catalyst behind the virus spread in the country.“As is possible that so many Bergamaschi that night got together in houses, bars to watch the match and did the same. Unfortunately, we couldn’t have known. No one knew the virus was already here,” the Mayor added.Additionally, 35% of Valencia’s team had also tested positive, along with over 2600 reported cases from Valencia, the Spanish city from where around 2500 fans flew to Italy for the game.Also read-José Mourinho’s touch of class towards vulnerable elderly as Coronavirus spreads in England Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgChamps WI now third in T20s DUBAI, UAE, CMC – West Indies have slumped to third spot in the International Cricket Council’s Twenty20 rankings, just a month after emphatically winning the Twenty20 World Cup in India. They have been bizarrely overtaken by New Zealand who bowed out to losing finalists England at the semi-final stage of the recent tournament. The Black Caps are now 10 points clear of West Indies at the top of the standings on 132 points, after leaping from third place and overtaking both India and the Caribbean side. Following their four-wicket victory over England in the T20 World Cup final at Eden Gardens on April 3, West Indies had vaulted into second spot, just one point behind India who topped the rankings with 126 points. New Zealand were third on 120 points. Since then, however, New Zealand have gained 12 points without playing a single game, while the second placed India have gained three and West Indies, in contrast, have lost three points. According to the ICC, the West Indies suffered from the fact the points from the 2012-13 season, which included those from their maiden T20 World Cup triumph in Sri Lanka, have now been dropped. Lara: Return of Bravo, Pollard vital for Tri-Nations PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC Batting legend Brian Lara wants to see the return of the likes of Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo, for next month’s Tri-Nations Series involving Australia and South Africa. Both players have been overlooked by selectors for One-Day Internationals since the controversial abandoned limited overs tour of India two years ago but Lara said having them involved in Twenty20 Internationals alone, was a backward step. “In terms of the Tri-Nations, I think it’s going to be a pretty exciting Tri-Nations series,” the former West Indies captain said. “And hopefully we can have the likes of Pollard and Bravo some guys who have not played that form of the game [recently] back in the team because they are integral of any West Indies team. “Just to have them for the T20 version I think is doing a disservice to West Indies cricket.” Renegades open to Gayle’s return MELBOURNE, Australia, CMC Melbourne Renegades have hinted they are not opposed to re-signing superstar West Indies opener Chris Gayle for the new Big Bash season, despite his now infamous “don’t blush baby” controversy. The development follows the announcement from Cricket Australia’s chief executive, James Sutherland, who said recently cricket authorities here would not prohibit Gayle from a return to the glitzy Twenty20 showpiece. Gayle sparked a firestorm of controversy earlier this year when he appeared to openly flirt with Channel TEN report Mel McLaughlin during a live television interview, during a game against Hobart Hurricanes. However, despite a US$10,000 fine from Renegades, a verbal censure from Cricket Australia and widespread calls for a Big Bash ban, Renegades head coach David Saker said he was unaware of any move to prevent Gayle’s return.last_img read more

If they want to play quick, we want to play quicker. We always try to put water on, but it’s not necessary here.”We want to cut the field – it’s better conditions for both teams. When this happens, you do the best for opponents.”We have to respect them with the rules. I never speak with the groundsman.”I have many issues to think about that.

We were so intense and finally got the goal and the three points,” said the defender.”We believed because we knew the game would be like this – we were prepared for this and in the first half maybe we were lacking a bit of patience in the final third but in the end we were happy with the three points and the goals. It was a massive win after the international break.”He also told the club’s website: “We have many options in the team and this is good. The team is getting better, we are improving game by game and we need to continue in this way. We are moving the ball quickly, our press is good and we are doing a good job as a team. We have clear ideas and we have to continue in this way.” last_img read more
