first_imgUncategorizedAn L.A. Library Card Gets You A Free Subscription to the New York TimesHell yesBy Jennifer Swann – August 17, 20161753ShareEmailFacebookTwitterPinterestReddItYou probably haven’t stepped foot in the L.A. Public Library in years, but at least now there’s a reason to actually get a library card. Once you sign up, you can use it to get free digital access (!) to the New York Times. Gizmodo writer Matt Novak noticed the offer (which doesn’t actually expire, despite being labeled as the library’s “electronic resource of the month”) and wrote about it yesterday, prompting a mad dash to the Times‘ site. Some who tried to claim it were greeted with a warning message alerting them that the library’s digital subscriber limit had already been reached.RELATED: This Abstract Map is a Guide to All of L.A.’s Public Libraries  The good news: The L.A. Library today tripled the number of free digital subscriptions it’s offering, according to spokesperson Lauren Skinner, who declined to say exactly how many subscriptions are available to library users. Your best bet is to check the website first thing in the morning, since the library’s allotment refreshes daily. Scoring the free Times subscription might be almost as taxing as nabbing tickets to Oldchella, but it’s worth the wait considering basic digital access costs $180 a year — and the paywall limiting non-subscribers to just 10 articles a week runs out real fast, even when you’re switching between three different browsers to hack it (we’ve all been there).RELATED: These Apps Are An Absolute Necessity if You Live in Los Angeles It’s just one of about a dozen different online services the L.A. Public Library offers to members free of charge, including access to the Sony music catalog Freegal, which lets you download up to five tracks a week, and hoopla, an online catalogue of audiobooks, movies, and television shows. And, of course, if you’re really partial to reading L.A.’s own daily paper of record, you can also access copies of the L.A. Times — though not the full site — via the LA. public library’s Proquest online database. Previous articleThese Are Some of the Most Toxic Areas in L.A. CountyNext articleL.A.

first_img By Associated Press Oct. 10, 2016 Reprints Heart attack patients are getting younger — and more obese About the Author Reprints Attention desk jockeys: Those who sit at work need an hour of exercise a day Tags exerciseheart attack Related: Should you simmer down before sweating it out? Robyn Beck/AFP/Getty Earlier studies have looked at anger and exertion as heart attack triggers, but most were small or in one country, or included few women or minorities. The new study involved 12,461 people suffering a first heart attack in 52 countries. Their average age was 58 and three-fourths were men.advertisement They answered a survey about whether they were angry or upset, or had heavy exertion, in the hour before their heart attack or during the same time period the previous day. That way researchers could compare risk at different times in the same people and the effect of these potential heart attack triggers.Being angry or upset doubled the risk of suffering heart attack symptoms within an hour; heavy physical exertion did the same. Having both at the same time more than tripled the risk for a heart attack.The risk was greatest between 6 p.m. and midnight, and was independent of other factors such as smoking, high blood pressure or obesity.Big caveats: Patients reported their own stress or anger, and people who just had a heart attack may be more prone to recall or think they suffered one of these triggers than they otherwise might have been. Also, strenuous exertion is whatever the patient perceives it to be — for some people that could be climbing stairs and for others, running a marathon. The study also is observational, so it cannot prove cause and effect. But it’s likely to be the best kind of information available — it’s not possible to randomly assign people to be angry and exercise, then see how many have heart attacks.“This is a large enough sample size that we can put stock in the findings,” Jacobs said.“We all need to find ways of modifying our emotional reactions and to avoid extreme anger,” such as distracting ourselves, walking away from the stressful situation, trying to see it from a different perspective, talking it out and getting support from other people, he said.The study’s findings also are biologically plausible. Emotional stress and exertion can raise blood pressure and heart rate, change the flow of blood in the vessels and reduce the heart’s blood supply, said the study leader, Dr. Andrew Smyth of McMaster University. In an artery already clogged with plaque, a trigger could block blood flow and lead to a heart attack.center_img Related: If you’re angry or upset, you might want to simmer down before heading out for an intense run or gym workout. A large, international study ties heavy exertion while stressed or mad to a tripled risk of having a heart attack within an hour.Regular exercise is a healthy antidote to stress and can help prevent heart disease — the biggest problem is that too many people get too little of it. But the new research suggests there may be better or worse times to exercise, and that extremes can trigger harm.“This study is further evidence of the connection between mind and body. When you’re angry, that’s not the time to go out and chop a stack of wood,” said Barry Jacobs, a psychologist at the Crozer-Keystone Health System in suburban Philadelphia and an American Heart Association volunteer.advertisement HealthExercising while angry or upset could carry temporary heart risks, study says Does exercise prevent cancer? “From a practical perspective, there will be times when exposure to such extremes is unavoidable,” Smyth said.“We continue to advise regular physical activity for all, including those who use exercise to relieve stress,” but people should not go beyond their usual routine at such times, he said.The study was funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, other governmental bodies from various countries that participated, and grants from several drug companies.— Marilynn Marchione Related: He had no role in the study, led by the Population Health Research Institute at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. Results were published Monday in the Heart Association journal Circulation. Associated Presslast_img read more

first_imgConsumers to track melons’ journey from farm to fingertips The State’s melon-lovers will be able to track the entire paddock-to-plate journey of their produce, with the launch of a new pilot program by the NSW Government that will use QR codes to connect consumers with fruit growers.Minister for Agriculture Adam Marshall announced the melon safety program, which he said today would enhance the NSW Government’s traceability systems by providing information on origin, freshness and safety, and help prevent bacteria outbreaks.“As a result of COVD-19, people have become more familiar with using QR codes, and now they will help industry deliver high-quality, traceable melons,” Mr Marshall said.“Through a simple scan of your mobile phone, the program will connect consumers with growers, packers, exporters, regulators and retailers – so you know every step of the journey your produce has been on, from paddock to plate.“Two years ago there was a national listeriosis outbreak, which we hope to never see again, and solutions like this will keep industry experts ahead in the traceability game.“This is a national program, spearheaded by the NSW Government, which allows growers to promote their farms and growing regions, while also providing consumers with confidence about the products they are purchasing for the family dinner table.”The NSW Government, through the Department of Primary Industries, has partnered with FreshChain, an Australian-owned and operated technology company, to deliver the pilot program.Mr Marshall said the call had now gone out for expressions of interest from horticultural businesses, especially melons, berries and leafy vegetables, to participate in the pilot for trialing traceability in the domestic and export market supply chains.“While the program gives consumers increased confidence in what they’re buying, it also presents an opportunity for our growers to showcase their world-class produce and food safety culture,” Mr Marshall said.“The State’s producers are at the forefront of the rapidly evolving digital traceability opportunities worldwide and solutions like this support the National Traceability Framework and strengthen competitiveness of Australian exports.“Growers need to see a return on investment and maintain compliance with local and export market requirements.”FreshChain was funded under an Australian Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment grant. The program is co-funded by Hort Innovation using melon growers R&D levy. /Public Release.

Slated for May 4, 2019 at Rancho Sisquoc Winery, this festival sets itself apart as the wine festival put on by winemakers for wine lovers.Novice and experienced oenophiles alike get the opportunity to ask their wine related questions during the weekend’s signature Festival Grand Tasting. Held the afternoon of May 4th, at majestic Rancho Sisquoc, the Festival Grand Tasting features over 70 wineries, many pouring newly released wines. Local food purveyors, live music, culinary and wine demonstrations, and a silent auction are a perfect pairing with the wine.The Santa Barbara Vintners Festival allows wine lovers to taste over 70 varietals grown locally. No other wine festival in the world offers the opportunity to experience more local grapes. Santa Barbara is blessed with such great diversity because of its unique geography which includes a transverse valley. This east-west valley creates a quilt of micro-climates in the area, allowing for the wide range of grapes that thrive.Drawing on the wealth of wine knowledge represented at the Festival, guests will get a behind-the-scenes look at how wine is made. There will be museum-like displays providing insight into the winemaking world, from watching a cooper make barrels, to seeing how wine actually gets in the bottle, to barrel-tasting at the winery itself.During the weekend of the Festival, the Vintners Visa is also available. This $50 Wine Country Tasting Pass allows guests to pick tastings at 12 wineries in the County with over 40 wineries to choose from during the May 2-6, 2019 window. This pass is the most robust tasting ticket offered all year.  Several ticket options are available for the Santa Barbara Vintners Festival. Early Entry VIP access ($100), which allows holders access to the Festival Grand Tasting an hour before it opens to the public, General Admission ($75), Locals Only ($60) and Designated Drivers and Under 21 ($25). This year the Festival returns to Santa Maria’s Rancho Sisquoc Winery,the beloved site of past Festivals. Rancho Sisquoc is part of an 1852 Mexican land grant. The winery is part of a 37,000 acre cattle ranch and farm purchased in 1952 by Mr. and Mrs. James Flood, who still own the property today. The Chumash Indians called this area “Sisquoc,” which meant “gathering place.” Today, Rancho Sisquoc remains a gathering place, this time for wine lovers.The northern region of the Santa Barbara County, Santa Maria Valley, is renowned for world-class Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. The area boasts 34 tasting rooms, 6 unique AVAs, 13 beaches, and a growing selection of local breweries, all within a beautiful 30-minute drive. If you are looking for sand dunes, hiking trails, horseback riding, cycling, and authentic Santa Maria Style dining, you’ll find all that right here. Santa Maria Valley is the perfect home base to eat, drink and do more for less. Guests who are staying at any Santa Maria Valley hotel receive a special pass that included tastings at Santa Maria area tasting rooms.Tickets for the festival are available online now, visit www.sbvintnersweekend.com for more information.For images of Santa Barbara Wine Country and past festivals please visit:https://www.dropbox.com/sh/r36mwjyilyfr3qg/AADmbUTpQX0R_j7DcHNSKqLRa?dl=0 SANTA BARBARA VINTNERSThe Santa Barbara Vintners (Santa Barbara County Vintners Association) is a non-profit 501 (c) 6 organization founded in 1983 to support and promote Santa Barbara County as a world-class, authentic wine producing and wine grape growing region.
