Negotiations for sanitation workers In Orange County make progress as the threat of strike looms

ORANGE, Calif. -- Over 1,100 sanitation workers in Orange County, CA are bargaining for a new contract for residential, commercial, and government waste removal services. Over the last 40 years, Teamsters Local 396 has bargained contracts that initially fought back against the poverty jobs created during the initial privatization and contracting out of public sanitation services.

But after several strikes, Unionized workers in the Orange County sanitation industry have won Union contracts with wage increases that are now knocking on the door of middle-class life.

Sanitation workers nationwide have seen significant improvements in their standard of living. This is a result of both solid wage increases in Union contracts, but mostly the abundance of available overtime to virtually all workers. This is due to a major shortage of commercial truck drivers.

"A lot of drivers take on a Sanitation job at some point, but most of them don't stick around. Not everyone can handle hard manual labor 12+ hours a day and six days a week," said Javier Bonales, Vice President of Local 396 and a 20-year veteran sanitation worker.

Teamsters Local 396 Secretary-Treasurer and rising labor star, Ron Herrera is pushing for contract settlements that move sanitation workers further along the road to the middle class. Herrera stated, "Sanitation workers are some of the hardest working and most reliable workers around. While some work 60-70 hours a week, they do so with great pride and appreciation since overtime pay has allowed them to buy homes, send their children to college, and more. It is time to reward the workers and their families."

Background: Wall Street is bullish on waste

The waste industry is highly profitable. Two major companies, Waste Management (NYSE: WM) and Republic Services (NYSE: RSG) have seen their stock values skyrocket over the last 5 years including major gains in 2021. Contract bargaining covers sanitation workers in Orange County cities such as Santa Ana, Garden Grove, Anaheim, Huntington Beach, Orange, and Seal Beach. If a contract is not agreed signed soon, Orange County could see a disruption in waste hauling by the end of the year.

Malakai Sparks Group of Orange County Expands Premium Realty Services to Encompass Costa Mesa

COSTA MESA, Calif. -- The Malakai Sparks Group, a California-based realty brokerage firm headed by real estate expert Malakai Sparks and one of the top realtor entities in all of Orange County, announced the expansion of its premium realty services to now encompass the city of Costa Mesa, offering its plethora of seasoned experience to those looking to buy or sell a home beyond the Huntington Beach area.

Since its inception, The Malakai Sparks Group has adhered to a vision for changing the face of the real estate industry, the company's mission statement of "providing the greatest real estate experience ever" being a shining testament to that goal. Representatives of the agency adhere to the belief that honest opinions, 100-percent transparency and helping clients achieve everything they want out of a realty transaction come second only to excellent customer service and an overall engaging, professional touch.

Amidst an industry where a focus is placed solely on the end result of closing deals and the unspoken motto of "say or do whatever it takes to get the deal done," The Malakai Sparks Group takes an inherently different approach.

"Everyone refers to real estate as a numbers game, but we don't subscribe to that - the way we see it, if our group accomplishes one million transactions per year but each of those transactions was not the greatest real estate experience for that client, we have failed," explains Malakai Sparks of TMSG. "To us, it's not about the number of transactions we complete, but rather the number of people who have truly benefited because we took care of them and guided them to invest their money properly.

"We are thrilled to be expanding our expert services beyond our original market in Huntington Beach to buyers and sellers in the Costa Mesa community, and for the opportunity to prove to them that when they partner with The Malakai Sparks Group, they are forming a bond with an agency that not only brings proven results but that also cares about them and their family's needs above all else."

Regularly cited for its idyllic positioning as a great place for families, outdoor enthusiasts and anyone looking for the ultimate place to call home, Costa Mesa has been exploding as of late in terms of its realty scene, the city remaining one of Orange County's leading cultural and business centers. Located 37 miles southeast of Los Angeles and 88 miles north of San Diego, Costa Mesa boasts a population of around 103,823 and has evolved from a semi-rural farming community to a city bustling with a local economy primarily based on retail commercial business and light manufacturing.

Residents here live in a sweeping range of neighborhoods and enjoy everything from 26 parks and a municipal golf course to 26 public schools and two libraries, to say nothing of the prominent centers of cultural and economic activity, an ideally mild Southern California climate and a location that provides easy access to many of So Cal's major attractions such as the beaches, mountain areas, high and low deserts and Disneyland.

When it comes time to sell a home, The Malakai Sparks Group ensures the property is cleanly and professionally represented across all channels in Orange County, its representatives regularly working with a dedicated team of contractors to make sure the home looks and feels as it should and is professionally inspected and deemed exceptional before an active listing is put in place. To this end, TMSG operates hand-in-hand with cleaning teams, professional photography and videography experts, complete inspection professionals and marketing/advertising reps. Learn more: https://www.malakaisparks.com/sell/costa-mesa-ca/.

The company also offers property management services, handling every aspect of the facets so clients can spend more time on the elements that matter rather than managing an income-generating property. From apartment buildings and single-family homes to condos, townhomes and commercial buildings, The Malakai Sparks Group executes customized housing management strategies for all clients, ensuring a smooth process for all parties involved.

The Malakai Sparks Group is located at 1503 South Coast Drive Suite 130 in Costa Mesa and can be reached by calling (714) 655-1627. For more information visit https://www.malakaisparks.com/ or email Malakai@TMSG.Me.

Grace Gardens Memory Care Opens This Summer

SANTA ANA, Calif. -- The Town & Country Life Plan Community announces the grand opening of Grace Gardens, a $25 million memory care community featuring one of the largest outdoor garden courtyards in Orange County. The nonprofit community offers residency for approximately 80 residents with Alzheimer's and dementia in four distinct neighborhoods.

The Grand Opening Celebration is at 2 p.m. PDT Friday, July 23 and features live music, complimentary beverages, brain-healthy treats, and tours of the memory care neighborhoods and community features. Attendees are invited to create a painting in the art room during the party. Tours will be socially distanced, and refreshments will be individually served. RSVP at 714-480-7738 or http://tcmanor.com/upcoming-events/.

"Nature produces a therapeutic effect on those with dementia and Alzheimer's," Town & Country Executive Director Dirk DeWolfe said. "We created a community where nature can be part of each resident's day."

A formative encounter with a dementia patient at the start of DeWolfe's career contributed to the unique physical design of Grace Gardens. "I took a combative patient for a walk outside and everything about him changed," DeWolfe said. "As long as he was walking, he was happy. When we began Grace Gardens, I knew a walkable, natural setting had to be integral to the design."

Grace Gardens will provide residents access to beautiful, natural surroundings, sunlight and plenty of secure, open space to move around. The 3,000 sq. ft. courtyard features walking paths, trees, flowers, edible plantings, raised gardens and a potting shed for horticulture therapy. Residents with less mobility will have access to indoor horticultural encounters.

"We look forward to the day when Alzheimer's is a disease of the past. Until then, we plan to do everything we can to make the journey as pleasant as possible," DeWolfe said.

Grace Gardens has shaped the environment around those living with dementia to empower residents with maximum independence and dignity. Activities and programming are designed to accommodate each individual's aptitude to ensure their success and make life easier. Programming is stage-informed to address the individual. There are many shades of cognitive impairment, and the team starts by investigating possible causes. They then apply all the tools, best practices and knowledge to improve the physical, emotional and spiritual experience of each resident based on their needs and potential.

Their memory care environment provides a sense of independence, autonomy, and choice. Using the latest in therapeutic design principles, Grace Gardens helps those experiencing cognitive decline from Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and other types of dementia to live successfully. Little cues make the difference, and intuitive layout and signage makes wayfinding simple.

Grace Gardens is on the Town & Country campus, which has a five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. They offer four neighborhoods, each attuned to a specific peer-based, stage-informed cohort of residents. Rooms are private and spacious with garden views. High-tech touch screens and intuitive wayfinding are featured. Families and residents can have breakfast, lunch or dinner together at an onsite dining venue called Rob's Garden Cafe. Grace Gardens offers 24x7 nursing staff and concierge doctor's office, medical appointment transportation and chef-crafted meals. Therapies include art, music, pet, exercise, and horticulture.

Town & Country is a charitable 501(c)(3) nonprofit Christian retirement community in the heart of Orange County. Built in 1975, Town & Country was brought to life with the vision of showing God's love through the caring and serving of their residents. The 8-acre campus is full of outdoor courtyards, gardens and fountains with every residential apartment having a private patio. Town & Country offers independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing, and short-term rehab care. For more information, visit https://www.tcmanor.com/

Kennedy Intelligence Data to Begin AI Marketing Program for Southern California Toyota Dealerships

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. -- Kennedy Intelligence Data (KID) with its partner SQREEM Technologies Pte. Ltd. developed and executed a program for Toyota of San Bernardino with its proprietary artificial intelligence (AI) technology to increase the success of the dealership's digital advertising campaigns. The results were so successful that a larger program is being prepared to test the KID approach over a greater network of Toyota dealerships.

"Working with KID and SQREEM was and is an eye-opening experience. We got a close up look at the new permutations of advertising through digital platforms using AI," said Cliff Cummings, President and Dealer Principal, Toyota of San Bernardino. "We saw increased traffic to our sites and there were very clear indications that in the areas where we focused this campaign that our penetration of the market saw marked increase."

Though the exact details are not being released, for competitive reasons, KID would go on the record to say they will be doing a larger program that will include multiple Toyota dealerships in the Southern California region.

"We are happy for the success KID/SQREEM AI provided Cliff Cummings and his Auto Group, and we look forward to doing the same for all the Toyota dealerships in the Southern California region," said James Kennedy President and CEO of Kennedy Intelligent Data.

SQREEM for their part were glad to see that the partnership with KID, which is strategically important due to the reach KID has in North America in the auto marketing arena, is paying quick dividends.

"As an AI-run digital media company, SQREEM has developed a world-first cookie-free media buying tech stack, that is now showing demonstrably better conversions than the traditional cookie-based approach. I am now very confident SQREEM will revolutionize digital media buying, especially in the new cookie-free era, the SQREEM approach is now proven to be a viable alternative to FLoC methodologies," said Ian Chapman-Banks co-founder and CEO of SQREEM.

The increase of data privacy laws and the phasing out of third-party cookies are altering consumer digital marketing. The evolution to AI that does not use cookies or bots is a major step in the online marketplace.

"The digital marketing world is constantly evolving at a dizzying pace and KID and SQREEM are on the edge of that evolution," said Cummings. "What is a new approach, an emerging technology a year, six months, a month ago can be obsolete very quickly. We are pleased to be working with a company that is at the edge of that evolution of tactics in the digital world."

New Novel Debates Ominous Cures for Two Crises: Recurring Pandemics and Too Many Men

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. -- Born out of a raging pandemic, Buzz McCord's new techno-thriller wrestles with artificial intelligence, surveillance and sex crime. "A Final Reminder" (ISBN: 978-1736148815) moves energetically between upbeat and malevolent. Its author wrote it to simultaneously entertain and enrage.

"A Final Reminder" walks the line between literary fiction and international intrigue. It transports readers to a near-future world where Dr. Dirk Samuelson, a San Francisco entrepreneur and founder of tech-conglomerate, Arctan International, has invented software that can stop any pandemic by tracking every person's movement and behaviors. He controls global data with formidable technical and economic barriers including 64-Qubit computers, space-based data-banking and lofty politicians.

McCord takes us to a still-hopeful world of bioluminescent hairdos and augmented human intelligence. Its scarred by recurring pandemics and burdened with ubiquitous ultraviolet sterilization and government-mandated instant pathogen detector machines.

"If history has taught us anything, it's that there will be another deadly global pandemic," said Bill Gates in his Shattuck Lecture, Boston, April 2018.

McCord adds, "Science has warned that viral scourges will repeat and get worse. We should be deeply alarmed, maybe systemically fearful."

In real life, Samuelson's software, Exoculation, is being studied by Shin Bet and MIT. Apple and Google recently announced that cellphones are already used to trace individual personal contacts.

Big Brother is here. So, what's next? McCord takes a stab at interpreting a picture of what's to come.

"I wanted to capture amazing technologies as well as an optimistic near-future, where talented people will be the empowered 'international currency,'" he says. "In my novel, society reacts to the catastrophic death tolls of recurring pandemics with what I call the 'Roaring Twenty-Twenties.' And, women in 'A Final Reminder' are supremely confident in their professional abilities - business, neurobiology, assassination - as well as their sexual selves."

Further threats arise from nearly a half billion "excess" human males.

McCord says, "The good guys in 'A Final Reminder' are forced to deal with this, but the solution is very ugly."

"A Final Reminder" describes a future coming soon to a reality near you.

About the Author

Buzz McCord is a tech-preneur and professor. "A Final Reminder" grew out of his career in international science, invention and teaching. A lifetime traveler, he prepped two years for the book in Albania, Norway, Korea, Tokyo and Kamchatka. He was chased in 2020 by the freshly emerging SARS-CoV-2 from Hong Kong through Cambodia into Vietnam. He's an award-winning documentary filmmaker.

McCord lives with his wife in Southern California. His favorite place to write is the lifeguard tower RJ near the river jetty on cold and windy days.

‘Real Power Today,’ led by Pastor Arnie Klann kicks off his 2020 Spiritual Warfare Retreats in Laguna Hills, CA

LAGUNA HILLS, Calif. -- Pastor Arnie Klann, "Real Power Today" announced. Pastor Klann is thrilled to have the opportunity to kick off ministry "that speaks to the unusual and trying times of today, that can lead to strong spiritual interface."

The ministry series is "Real Power Today." The series will kick-off June 25th & June 26th in a Retreat format. The focus is on helping people to push back and heal against Spiritual attack, through a Christian and scriptural format.

The conference series is designed to be targeted, hopeful, and educational. Spiritual Warfare is a Deliverance based, Biblical study.

In a recent interview, Pastor Arnie Klann introduced his theme, "Refueling a Mid-Crisis Life." "The retreats serve as a training, healing, and educational tool; specifically, for alleviating what can feel like a spiritual depression or anxiety. The purpose is to be assisted in prayer for the aid of healing."

In reviewing Pastor Klann's concept, it was intriguing to find that these conferences will be set up in a private and relaxed setting; led primarily by an educational base and an opportunity for small group prayer or private prayer. It will be a day long retreat, which includes a luncheon, the ability to relax on break-time in a beautiful coiffed landscape with water and fountains.

"The relaxation environment is secondary to the primary goal of healing in a deeper, scriptural, and Christian-based venue," Klann states.

The retreats are designed to be intentionally small, (maximum of 10 participants); in order to get more personal prayer time achieved in a shorter period; rather than multiple visits at church.

For more information, scheduling & pricing can be found at https://realpowertoday.com/ website.

Casa Romantica Opened Gardens to Public on Friday, May 22

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. -- Casa Romantica Cultural Center and Gardens, an award-winning Southern California 501(c)(3) nonprofit, opened their gardens to the public on Friday, May 22, in accordance with social distancing and safety guidelines provided by the state of California.

Amy Behrens, the executive director, explained that gardens like Casa Romantica's are indispensable to community healing, offering much-needed places for respite with nature and inspiration. "We look forward to welcoming guests back to our beautiful setting where they can enjoy self-care or family time among our springtime blooms and ocean vistas."

San Clemente is a popular Southern California seaside community. Casa Romantica's gardens, with cliffside views of the Pacific Ocean and pier, have traditionally been a 'must-see' for tourists during the summer months. Casa Romantica is a member of the American Public Gardens Association and American Horticultural Society. Its gardens include several different themes, such as herbs, succulents, native plants, and a registered Monarch Waystation Butterfly Garden.

At this time only the gardens will be open, and the house remains closed for the safety of our guests. Tickets are limited to a maximum of 40 visitors per hour, with a maximum of 20 guests at any one time on Casa Romantica's 2.5-acre property to ensure safe social distancing.

Complimentary take home maps are available at the front entrance so that visitors may take self-guided tours through Casa Romantica's seaside gardens. The one-way route includes marked hand sanitizer stations. The complete course includes some stairs, but a modified route is fully accessible for visitors with special mobility needs.

The suggested donation for admission is $5, and self-service and/or non-touch methods of donation by card or cash are available at the front entrance. All proceeds support the 501(c)(3) nonprofit's preservation and programs.

While subject to current government health and safety guidelines, Casa Romantica anticipates re-opening its historic home later this summer and resuming its award-winning programming onsite for the 20-21 season. The upcoming season includes both onsite and remote modalities for participation, enabling the nonprofit to fulfill its mission for people of all ages in a manner that fits each individual's needs.

For those visiting the gardens in the coming days, masks and personal hand sanitizer will be available for purchase at the front entrance. Visit casaromantica.org for a complete listing of protocols to protect our staff and guests before visiting the gardens.
