Required fields are marked * Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Pasadena City Councilmember Andy Wilson proudly welcomed Linux 14X, the 14th Annual Southern California Linux Expo, to the Pasadena Convention Center Saturday morning.Wilson, who himself comes from the software industry, was thrilled to call himself a “geek” among the packed ballroom, filled with software developers and aficionados. He described his own excitement at having the growing event move from its former location near LAX to Pasadena. The event will draw more than 3500 Linux fans to the convention center over this weekend.Wilson co-founded “Innovate Pasadena,” a cooperative effort between local tech companies and the city, which he described as “creating a vibrant tech eco-system.”“If you’re really nerdy like me,” he laughed, “we’re trying to make this our home, so that’s our focus,” he told the crowd.“Scale 14X” is a combination workshop, classroom, learning process, tech fair, and networking opportunity for developers who specialize in creating software for the Linux operating system, a system which operates wholly separately from Mac or Windows, under the idea that software should be free and open to everyone, whether developer or just a consumer. Nearly every popular software has an equivalent in Linux, though the system is still primarily for developers and experts. So far.Wilson, who has founded and invested in a fistful of software companies, told the group that he sees himself as the primary advocate for technology on the council. He also took the opportunity to “brag” about the city to the group, many of whom were new to the city. He specifically mentioned Caltech, “just up the street,” and its Mars Rover program and 30 Nobel Prize winners, among a host of discoveries and innovations.In addition, said Wilson, “The majority of cars on the road today were created by Art Center College of Design hands!”DNA Sequencers were also developed in Pasadena, said Wilson, as well as “pay and search advertising” which has been key yo Google’s massive economic success. Earthlink and E-Harmony also originally began in Pasadena, as well as Spokeo, which was founded in the Bay Area, also now makes it home in Pasadena.Wilson also touted Idea Lab, which was founded in Pasadena in 1996 as the first tech incubators, a place where new startups could be nurtured and allowed to grow and blossom. Since its creation, IdeaLab has created 125 tech companies, with 40 IPOs and acquisitions, including Picasa, Internet Brands, SellBrite, ESolar, and codeSpark.Concluding his welcome, Wilson said, “I think our mission here in the City of Pasadena and for innovators on the whole, is around community-building and sharing and sharing our ideas and activities.”With that, more than 3500 developers got right to work on a Saturday morning in Pasadena, Southern California’s fastest growing tech hub.

DES MOINES — After national party leaders raised security concerns and rejected the Iowa Democratic Party’s plan for “virtual” caucuses, Iowa Democrats have come up with a plan for “satellite” caucuses.Satellite voting is a familiar term for Iowans who have cast General Election ballots at “satellite” locations like churches, schools and even grocery stores before Election Day. For the 2016 Iowa Caucuses, though, the Iowa Democratic Party approved four “satellite” precincts on Caucus Night.Tonight, the Iowa Democratic Party’s governing board unanimously approved a plan to significantly expand “satellite” caucus locations on February 3rd. Iowa Democrats may apply to establish a satellite site at places like factories, group homes or community gathering spots. A group of “neutral” party leaders who have NOT endorsed a presidential candidate will review the applications and decide which to approve.Each satellite location will be like a “mini-caucus” — following the same rules and using the same reporting system as all the precinct meetings elsewhere.This new plan to expand participation in the Iowa Caucus will be reviewed Friday by the Democratic National Committee’s Rules and Bylaws Committee.Iowa Democratic Party news release below:DES MOINES — Today, the Iowa Democratic Party (IDP) released a proposed updated delegate selection plan for the 2020 Iowa Caucuses that fulfills the party’s goals of increasing voter participation and securely expanding accessibility. Significantly expanding on the existing satellite caucus structure, Iowa Democrats will have the opportunity to caucus during extended hours at a venue other than their assigned precinct location on February 3, 2020.Keeping with the spirit of the DNC rules and regulations, this proposal will increase participation and make the caucuses more accessible for Iowans who have traditionally been unable to attend their in-person precinct caucus. The Iowa State Central Committee voted unanimously to move forward with the proposal, and it now goes to the DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee for review.“Iowa Democrats have worked incredibly hard to make sure that the 2020 caucuses are the most successful in our state’s history. Organizers, activists and volunteers are preparing for the caucuses earlier than ever before to bring voters into our party, and satellite caucuses will build on that work while increasing accessibility on caucus night,” said IDP Chair Troy Price. “There are many challenges with developing a new system, especially in such a short period of time. And a satellite caucus system is the best possible solution to build on the great work of caucus organizers and keep focused on our goal of giving more Iowans a voice in our party and building momentum up-and-down the ticket in 2020. We look forward to discussing this proposal with the Rules and Bylaws Committee members.”About the proposal:• The 2020 satellite caucus proposal will allow for additional caucus locations on February 3 to expand participation for people who cannot attend their in-person precinct caucus.• The IDP will expand the constituency engagement team to ensure the party is reaching communities across the state, as well as accessibility staff to make sure the caucus system works for all Iowans.• Iowa Democrats can apply to hold a satellite site at places like factories, group homes, or community gathering places, to better accommodate people who cannot attend their in-person caucus. This option will be especially useful for shift workers, Iowans with disabilities, Iowans serving overseas, and students.• The IDP will create a special satellite caucus review committee that will review applications and determine approval. The committee members will be appointed by the IDP Chair, and it will be comprised of SCC members who have pledged neutrality in the presidential race.• Just like precinct caucuses, each satellite location will have a trained captain who is charged with overseeing the room, managing volunteers, and reporting the results on caucus night.• The results will be reported using the same method as precinct caucus locations. The satellite caucuses will create one additional county in each Congressional District.###

Model Niki Taylor has blogged about what World Blood Donor Day means to her.“June 14 is World Blood Donor Day,” she wrote. “I celebrate it every year in honor of blood and platelet donors – modern day superheroes – who volunteer to roll up a sleeve and provide a lifesaving gift for patients they don’t even know.“Sixteen years ago, these superheroes were there for me after a major car accident. In a matter of seconds, my life completely changed. I had severe internal injuries, needed over 41 surgeries (including three in a 24 hour period), and received approximately 100 units of blood. I will always be grateful to the amazing doctors and American Red Cross blood donors who made my recovery possible.“Since the accident, I’ve worked with the Red Cross to raise awareness about the ongoing need for blood and platelet donations. Patients depend on these donations every day. It’s so important to keep a sufficient supply on the shelves, especially during times like summer, when many regular donors are on vacation.“Beauty comes from within – and what is more beautiful than the blood and platelet donors who generously give of themselves to help save lives?”To read the full blog and find out more, click here.
