Inside Linda Fargo's Epic Grey Gardens–Themed Birthday Party at Hayward House - Vogue.comWednesday, July 05, 2017
Linda Fargo’s Grey Gardens–themed birthday party held Friday night in New York City. Inspired by the Maysles brothers’ 1975 cult classic documentary, Hayward House was transformed into the Beales’ dilapidated East Hamptons compound. Cohosted by Marin Hopper and John Goldstone, the occasion called for decadent attire that followed suit. “In the spirit of Edie Beale, this is all DIY,” Fargo said of fashioning a black turtleneck into a turban and a mink fur coat around her waist like a ball skirt. “I think that’s what everyone remembers about Little Edie—how she took her old finery and recycled it. And brooches with everything.” Fargo made the look her own with custom mink earrings: “These are Ranjana Khan, and speaking of, here are Ranjana and Naeem Khan now,” she said just as the designer husband and wife walked through the door.Upon arrival, a pair of drag performers masquerading as Big Edie and Little Edie greeted guests. Little Edie took turns reading horoscopes, while Big Edie pointed out table assignments that had been given such names as Mother Darling and Cat Land. Past the replica of Big Edie’s rickety twin bed (where several lifelike kitt... http://www.vogue.com/article/linda-fargo-grey-gardens-themed-birthday-party-hayward-house
From flowers to housing: Family-owned Ah Sam property for sale in San Mateo - San Mateo Daily JournalTuesday, May 23, 2017
Developers of those two projects have cited the proximity to the Hillsdale Caltrain station and future grade separations as prime perks for the infill sites.
Further north, the Hayward Park Caltrain station has also spurred a flurry of redevelopment activity. Construction at Station Park Green is underway where 599 housing units will be located adjacent to the nearly complete Hines office complex along Concar Drive. Caltrain is also looking to redevelop a portion of its surface parking lot at the Hayward Park station into a mixed-use housing project as well.
Long gone are the days when neighbors were scattered and development sporadic as Ah Sam first got started in the 1930s. Now, traffic, parking and density are often cited as concerns by neighbors living nearby when housing is proposed.
But as one of the few remaining infill sites that’s completely underutilized, Paris noted he can’t imagine the city approving something other than a TOD housing proposal for the Ah Sam property. Plus, there are extensive planning documents such as the Hillsdale Station Area Plan that call for these types of projects, he said.
“Transit-oriented residential development is a premier use for any of these types of site,” Paris said. “Residential, in our market, is the highest and best use.”

Sensible signings pay dividends for Chargers GM Tom Telesco - ESPN (blog)Tuesday, March 14, 2017
NFL)Total contract value: $149,635,588 (20th in NFL)Three-year W-L: 18-30Biggest hit: Brought in to play nickel defender and add depth at cornerback, former Green Bay Packers defensive back Casey Hayward signed a three-year, $15.3 million deal with the Chargers during the offseason last year. Hayward developed into the Chargers’ best defensive back in 2016 after injuries sidelined starting cornerbacks Jason Verrett and Brandon Flowers. Hayward led the NFL in interceptions last season with seven, which earned him an invitation to the Pro Bowl for the first time in his five-year NFL career. With Verrett, who earned a Pro Bowl invitation in 2015, returning from an ACL knee surgery, the Chargers should have one of the best cornerback tandems in the league in 2017.Biggest miss: The Chargers inked veteran return man Jacoby Jones to a two-year, $5.5 million deal during the 2015 offseason. However, Jones struggled to stay healthy, and his lack of production on the field prompted the Chargers to release him eight games into the regular season. Jones averaged 21.4 yards per return in 2015, his lowest output since his rookie season in 2007 with the Houston Texans. And Jones had minus-4 punt return yards for the Chargers that season. The Chargers finished last in the NFL in 2015 with 84 punt return yards.Sneaky-good move: In search of stability at the center position since longtime anchor of the offensive line Nick Hardwick retired after the 2014 season, the Chargers finally found someone in vetera... http://www.espn.com/blog/san-diego-chargers/post/_/id/19724/focus-on-sensible-signings-pays-dividends-for-chargers-gm-tom-telesco
10 Things to Watch: What's the Plan for Verrett, Flowers and Hayward? - Chargers.comTuesday, July 26, 2016
July 30.What is the Cornerback Rotation?From the moment the Chargers inked former Packer Casey Hayward on March 13, many have wondered how the team plans to use their top three cornerbacks in unison.With Jason Verrett fresh off his first Pro Bowl appearance and former Pro Bowler Brandon Flowers back to full health, what tricks does Defensive Coordinator John Pagano have up his sleeve to deploy the trio at the same time?After seeing glimpses of those plans throughout the offseason program, training camp will offer the best look yet at how they will be used. According to Defensive Backs Coach Ron Milus, it may actually change from week to week come the regular season.“Casey and Brandon have played both outside and inside, but I want Jason to be able to go in there also at any time,” he said. “If we ever get into a game where our matchup is best for Jason to be inside, we can put him in there. If we can get Jason to that point where he is comfortable as the nickel defender, and the other two guys can go outside, I think that helps us. We want those three guys to be able to play al... http://www.chargers.com/news/2016/07/22/10-things-watch-whats-plan-verrett-flowers-and-hayward

As he was familiar with Proteas being grown in California, he was inspired to explore the potential of a Protea industry in Hawaii.This industry has indeed developed and continues to grow.With partial funding for Protea research coming from the Governor’s Agricultural Coordinating Committee, several College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources researchers have been able to solve some of this young industry’s problems and help improve production and handling.Parvin worked on the management aspects of the crop, such as the selection of superior cultivars, propagation, density spacing, pruning and plant nutrition.I-Pai Wu, a professor of agricultural engineering, developed drip irrigation systems to meet water requirements in the field and make better use of available water resources.

Master Gardener: How to make cut flowers last - Press-EnterpriseTuesday, January 08, 2019
There is a convenient substitute for commercial flower preservative. A number of years ago, University of California researchers discovered that a solution of one part lemon lime soda (regular, not diet) and two parts water works just as well as the commercial products. The acidity of the soda and the sugar in the solution work together to prolong flower freshness. Following these simple steps should ensure that your flowers will last their longest.Q: The raspberry vines I have produce wonderful berries. Several friends would also like plants of this variety but I don’t know its name. How can I help them?A: Cuttings usually can be rooted successfully as long as they are taken from canes that have not born fruit. For best results, select canes that are at least pencil-thickness. Cut them to six-inch lengths and remove the leaves from the lower half of each cutting. Insert the leafless half in a moist soil; raspberries root easily enough that rooting hormone is rarely necessary. Within four to eight weeks roots should develop.When grown under the same conditions as your plant, these new plants will produce the same fine berries as their parent. https://www.pe.com/2018/11/15/master-gardener-how-to-make-cut-flowers-last/
