Holden Honors Pasadena Holocaust Survivor at Capitol Ceremony

first_imgGovernment Holden Honors Pasadena Holocaust Survivor at Capitol Ceremony Published on Monday, April 13, 2015 | 3:16 pm Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Assemblymember Chris Holden and Holocaust honoree, Ike Langholz of Pasadena.In a moving ceremony today at the State Capitol, Assemblymember Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) recently honored Holocaust survivor Ike Langholz of Pasadena whose nightmarish journey through the Nazi occupation of Poland was recounted on the Assembly floor as part of Holocaust Remembrance Week.“I am honored to be able to share Ike Langholz’ story of survival in the face of incredible pain and suffering at the hands of the Nazis,” said Assemblymember Holden. “Ike lived through extreme persecution and horrific experiences during this agonizing dark history. The number of survivors is dwindling, so we are here today to raise awareness of these dark events and honor Ike for his courage and his willingness to tell his story.”Ike’s story begins as 8-yer-old along the Poland/Ukraine border. Following the Nazi conquest of Poland in 1939, any sense of normalcy became impossible. Jews were beaten and forced to work in labor camps or killed simply because they were Jews.Three of Ike’s six brothers and sisters, as well as his mother, grandmother, and other family members were killed by the Nazi SS. Ike and his brother Sam ran away from the labor camp where they had been forced to work as slave labor and hid in the woods, surviving on potatoes and sugar beets and their own skills.With the liberation of the camps by Russian troops in the waning days of World War II, Ike and his brother, two sisters and their father made their way to a displaced persons camp in Germany. There he learned a trade as an electrician and said he “learned to be human again”.Ike and his brother arrived in Pasadena in 1951 and soon got jobs and later owned a small retail business. He married Faye Chason and they have four children and six grandchildren.The now 88-year-old survivor looks back on those years and says it is important to remember:“For decades I was silent, but I and other survivors have an important story to tell so that no child will have to deal with the hatred and violence that my family experienced.” First Heatwave Expected Next Week faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Community News Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Required fields are marked * Community News Discussions over plans to use the Rose Bowl for some events during the 2024 Olympics were a no-go last night due to the absence of three key Councilmembers. Tyron Hampton and Steve Madison, who represent communities on the East and West flanks of the Bowl property, did not attend the meeting. Also away was Councilmember Victor Gordo, the Council’s representative to the Rose Bowl Operating Company.The discussions were to center around a financial guarantee letter stating “neither Pasadena or the operating company would have increased financial liability or exposure as a result of the Games.”The letter also asks the Los Angeles Olympic Committee to make an unspecified investment that will improve the Rose Bowl.According to a draft letter sent to the Rose Bowl Operating Company by the Olympics Committee, the venue’s minimum terms guarantee an exclusive use period stipulating only Olympic-related activities be allowed to take place between July 5 and August 8 at the Rose Bowl in 2024.Discussions on using the Rose Bowl during the 2024 Olympics have been pushed back to next week’s meeting. During the 1984 Olympics, the Rose Bowl hosted the Bronze and Gold Soccer matches before a combined audience of over 202,000 spectators over a two-day period. Despite making a bid for the 2024 games, there is still no guarantee the Olympics will come back to the Los Angeles-area for the first time since 1984.

Große Finanzunternehmen setzen die bahnbrechende Kausale-KI-Plattform von causaLens ein, um wichtige kausale Erkenntnisse zu…

first_img Twitter TAGS  By Digital AIM Web Support – February 3, 2021 Facebook LONDON, Vereinigtes Königreich–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– Die weltweit erste Kausale-KI-Plattform, die von dem Deep Tech Scale Up causaLens entwickelte wurde, wird von Finanzdienstleistern genutzt (darunter Aviva Investors, 2IQ, TIAA, CLS Group sowie eine Vielzahl prominenter Hedgefonds), um automatisch wertvolle kausale Erkenntnisse aus Finanzdaten zu extrahieren und die Profitabilität ihrer Handelsstrategien zu steigern. Diese Pressemitteilung enthält multimediale Inhalte. Die vollständige Mitteilung hier ansehen: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210203005833/de/ causaLens’ new website (Photo: Business Wire) Die Finanzdienstleistungsbranche ist darauf angewiesen, die wahren Treiber dynamischer Märkte zu verstehen. Doch können die aktuellen KI-Systeme nur Korrelationen erkennen. Diese Kurvenanpassungen generierenden Maschinen sind nicht skalierbar, erfordern teure und nur schwer zusammenstellbare Teams von Datenwissenschaftlern, bieten nur eine begrenzte Erklärbarkeit und funktionieren letztlich nicht gut für die Finanzmärkte. Causal AI (kausale KI) ist eine völlig neue Art des maschinellen Lernens (ML), die uns einen Schritt näher bringt zu wirklich intelligenten Maschinen. Sie kann Ursache und Wirkung verstehen, intuitiv menschliches Wissen einbeziehen, optimale Interventionen entwerfen und sich kontrafaktische Szenarien vorstellen – all das hilft bei der Strategie- und Entscheidungsfindung. Darüber hinaus zeigt sie eine überlegene Leistung bei konventionellen Prognoseaufgaben, da sie sich nachweislich dreimal schneller an neue Marktbedingungen anpasst als aktuelle ML-Technologie. Michael Grady, Head of Investment Strategy und Chief Economist bei Aviva Investors, erläutert die Zusammenarbeit der Vermögensverwaltung mit causaLens: „Causal AI (kausale KI) spielt eine immer wichtigere Rolle bei unserer Anlageanalyse. Sie versetzt unsere Strategen und Portfoliomanager in die Lage, Alpha zu generieren, indem sie neue kausale Zusammenhänge in Wirtschafts-, Finanz- und alternativen Daten identifizieren – mit ausgefeilten, adaptiven und erklärbaren Modellen, die nicht unter Überanpassung leiden.“ Masami Johnston, Head of Information Services bei CLS Group, erklärte: „Mit Causal AI (kausale KI) können wir signifikante und unerwartete Veränderungen von Schlüsselfaktoren im Zusammenhang mit den Devisenmärkten identifizieren, wodurch wir rasch auf Marktbedingungen reagieren und Anlagestrategien verbessern können.“ Darko Matovski, CEO und Mitbegründer von causaLens kommentierte: „Wir haben im Jahr 2017 Pionierarbeit im Bereich automatisiertes maschinelles Lernen (AutoML) für Zeitreihendaten geleistet und haben unseren Kunden einen immensen Mehrwert in Bezug auf Leistung und Kosteneinsparungen gebracht. Wir sind stolz darauf, nun die nächste Stufe der Intelligenz auf den Markt gebracht zu haben. Mit Counterfactual und Interventional Reasoning, einzigartige Merkmale von Causal AI (kausale KI), erreichen unsere Kunden, ein höheres Maß an Automatisierung und Intelligenz, als dies bisher möglich war, was zu einem höheren ROI führt. Zudem haben wir unser Angebot über Zeitreihendaten hinaus erweitert.“ Weitere Anwendungsfälle, Whitepapers und Demonstrationen von Causal AI finden Sie auf der neuen causaLens-Website.

Breonna Taylor case: Breonna’s Law passed to ban no-knock warrants

first_imgBreonna Taylor FamilyBy EMILY SHAPIRO, CHRISTINA CARREGA and MARK OSBORNE, ABC News(LOUISVILLE, Ky.) — The Louisville, Kentucky, Metro Council unanimously passed Breonna’s Law — named in honor of police-shooting victim Breonna Taylor — on Thursday evening, outlawing “no-knock” warrants and requiring body cameras be turned on before and after every search.Taylor, a 26-year-old black woman, was shot by Louisville police when they executed a no-knock warrant while she slept in her home on March 13.The shooting took place when the home Taylor, a front-line health care worker, shared with her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, was raided by three plainclothes officers. Police said the no-knock warrant was related to drugs.A standing ovation broke out on the council after the 26-0 vote Thursday. A crowd outside also applauded the decision.“I’m proud to be a Louisvillian. This is probably the proudest moment I have had as a member of this council. So, it’s a good day to be a Louisvillain. The entire world is watching us,” District 1 Councilwoman Jessica Green told Louisville ABC affiliate WHAS-TV after the vote.Taylor’s mother, Tamika Palmer, was elated after the vote.“I know if Breonna was here today, she’d be looking down thinking I’m making history,” Palmer said following the council meeting. “She just really cared about saving lives and so she’ll get to continue to do that with Breonna’s law. I know she’d be blessed. I’m blessed. I’m happy. It’s a start.”The officers involved in the shooting were not wearing body cameras, although others in the department wore them. With the passing of Breonna’s Law, police officers are now subject to punishment if they do not turn on body cameras five minutes before and after searches.The detective who applied for the no-knock warrant that resulted in the police death of Breonna Taylor has now been reassigned, authorities said late Wednesday.Walker, 27, called 911 as shots rang out, and bullets were exchanged between the officers and Walker, a licensed gun owner, according to Sam Aguiar, an attorney for Taylor’s family.“Questions have been raised … about how and why the search warrant was approved,” Louisville Metro acting Police Chief Robert Schroeder said at a news conference Wednesday. “As a result of those questions, I have placed Detective Joshua Jaynes, who applied for the warrant, on administrative reassignment until those questions can be answered.”No charges have been filed in connection with Taylor’s death.The officers who responded that night were previously reassigned.

City Market, Onion River Co-op is now powered by the sun

first_imgCity Market, Burlington’s only community-owned grocery store, is officially powered by the sun. After a year of planning and a few weather delays, the installation of 136 solar panels on the Co-op’s roof is completed. The project will generate 31 kilowatts of power which will help the Co-op to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels by at least three percent.The Co-op’s monthly bill from the Burlington Electric Department (BED) is approximately $17,000. Freezer and refrigeration units that run continuously use a lot of energy. The solar project is just one piece in the Co-op’s commitment to energy efficiency and green building practices. “We have been working on many different projects to improve our energy efficiency and the solar power project is one of the largest and most impactful,” said Pat Burns, City Market Operations Manager.  “We will be generating enough electrical energy to power six Burlington homes for a year.”City Market worked with Vermont-based groSolar on the project installation. “We’re excited that a high-profile shopping destination like City Market has made this commitment to a clean-energy future,” said groSolar CEO Jeff Wolfe. “The combination of drastically reduced prices and strong government incentives made this project a smart move for City Market. We’re optimistic because we see many more homeowners and businesses taking advantage of the opportunity solar power offers for long-term energy security, financial savings and protection of our most precious resource: our planet.”The total cost of the project is $187,912 but City Market is paying just over $93,000. Thanks to a $53,900 grant from the Vermont Clean Energy Development Fund and the Co-op’s eligibility for a $40,204 federal tax credit the out-of-pocket costs were greatly reduced.“Once we looked at the numbers and realized we’ll recoup our up-front costs in less than five years, we knew this investment would bring a strong financial return for our members,” said Clem Nilan, General Manager of City Market. “But this is a business decision that also has tangible social and environmental benefits. One of the central tenets of our mission is to make a difference in the lives of consumers. By reducing our carbon footprint and supporting the local green economy with groSolar, we know we’re doing something worthwhile for the community as well.”A ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned for Friday, March 12 at 2:00 p.m. at City Market. Representatives from City Market, groSolar, Senator Bernie Sanders, and Mayor Bob Kiss plan to attend. In addition, City Market and groSolar are teaming up to offer a series of free workshops called Solar Made Simple to educate people on solar energy and its use in residential applications. The next workshop is scheduled for March 23 at 6:00 p.m.About City Market/Onion River Co-opThe Onion River Co-op is a consumer cooperative, with over 5,000 members, selling wholesome food and other products while building a vibrant, empowered community and a healthier world, all in a sustainable manner.

Super Bowl 53 commercials: How much do ads cost in 2019?
