Photo courtesy Boys & Girls ClubMarshall Fundamental School ninth grader Lowell Anthony Romero, 15, has been selected as the Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena’s 2016 Youth of the Year, and will represent Pasadena as he joins 26 other Boys & Girls Club members in vying for the title of Los Angeles County Youth of the Year. Each nominee represents one of the 27 Clubs that comprise the Los Angeles County Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs.Youth of the Year is the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s premier youth recognition program for teenage members, and being named a Youth of the Year is the highest honor a Club member can achieve. The program acknowledges members’ outstanding contributions to their family, school, community, and Club, as well as personal challenges and obstacles they have overcome.Anthony, as he is known, was chosen for this honor from among three candidates at the Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena. He has attended the organization’s Mackenzie-Scott branch since 2012. Anthony is on the track team at Marshall and is also a saxophone player in the marching band. He also serves as the freshman class president for the Associated Student Body at Marshall. Outside of school, he plays in the Altadena Little League, where his talents on the field took him to the 2015 Junior Tournament of Champions. Math is his favorite subject and he aspires to attend UCLA and become an electrical engineer.“The Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena works with hundreds of kids every day, and the young people who participate in the Youth of the Year program are exceptional examples of our members,” said Executive Director Brian Davis. “Once again, our judges have found an amazing young man who brings so much to the Club and contributes so much to Pasadena. I was very impressed by all three of this year’s finalists and I am proud that Anthony will represent the Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena.”Two rounds of judging will take place before the winner is announced March 23 at a gala celebration. The Los Angeles County winner will advance to the state competition. The state winner will compete at the nine-state regional level, and finally the country’s five regional winners will travel to Washington, D.C. where the National Youth of the Year will be named later this year. Scholarship money is awarded at the different stages of competition and the National Youth of the Year will have the opportunity to meet with the President of the United States at the White House.The National Youth of the Year serves a one-year term as a representative of the more than four million young people served by some 4,000 Boys & Girls Clubs nationwide and on U.S. military installations worldwide. Duties include addressing various groups on important youth issues and the role Boys & Girls Clubs play in changing young lives. Locally, Anthony will represent the hundreds of youth served every year at the Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena and will attend various Club functions, such as the annual meeting of the Board of Directors and its annual fundraising gala, in his Youth of the Year capacity.About the Boys & Girls Club of PasadenaThe Boys & Girls Club operates two sites in Pasadena—the Slavik Branch at 3230 East Del Mar Blvd. and the Mackenzie-Scott Branch at 2020 North Fair Oaks Ave.—and serves more than 2,500 community youth year-round from Pasadena and the nearby communities of South Pasadena, Alhambra, San Marino, Arcadia, Sierra Madre, La Canada, La Crescenta, Montrose, and Glendale. Since 1937, the mission of the Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena has been to enable all young people, especially those who need it most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The Club promotes the health, education, social, vocational, and character development of boys and girls, ages 6 to 18, and helps improve the lives of these children by helping them build self-assurance and develop leadership skills while reinforcing positive values.

Widdecombe to host quiz show

first_imgAnn Widdecombe is to host a brand new quiz show titled ‘Cleverdicks’. An alumnus of Lady Margaret Hall, Widdecombe is aiming to make viewers smarter and teach them a thing or two.Widdecombe retired from politics in 2010, having been a prominent Conservative Member of Parliament since 1987; after retiring, she gained showbiz fame with her unusual performance in Strictly Come Dancing.The quiz show will feature contestants of “Mastermind level” but apparently will not be as hard as University Challenge. They will play for a money prize and compete for the title of ‘Cleverdick’.Widdecombe, who has two degrees in Latin in PPE, will ask questions such as, “Which city was invaded and occupied by Italy on 20 September 1870?” and “In medicine, what does a ‘sphygmomanometer’ measure?” (Rome and blood pressure, respectively).On Widdecombe’s new role as a quiz show host, one LMH student commented, “What a good idea, Ann is just full of them.”Other notable LMH alumni include Benazir Bhutto, former prime minister of Pakistan, and Michael Gove, Secretary of State for Education.last_img read more

Cinema upgrades technology

first_imgDue to a technology upgrade in the Browning Cinema, the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center can now screen digital cinema packages (DCPs), the high-quality digital format used to film most movies today. Ted Barron, senior associate director of the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, said this recent transformation would ensure the theater stays current with changing film industry standards. “Because of the investment the University made, we are at the cutting edge of current technology,” Barron said.  The noteworthy installation of a server and projector to play DCPs allows for higher definition image and improved audio, he said. In addition, a move to only one panel of projection room glass helps maximize image quality and brightness.  “The quality is a world of difference from what we had before,” Barron said. “It really benefits everyone.” Barron said movie theaters across the country have undergone similar transformations to the user-friendly DCP technology as the industry moves away from 35-millimeter film. “This is a huge change within the film industry,” he said.  This digital capability also ensures much easier transportation and projection of films, Barron said. Before, only 35-millimeter films could be shown, which involve manual threading of projectors and multiple bulky film reels for each film, which are much more difficult to handle than the DVD-box-sized DCP that simply needs to be uploaded to the cinema’s server. Barron said he was grateful the Chicago-based film projection specialist Full Aperture Systems could install the upgrade because the company employs experts in the field. Browning Cinema used to not be able to project student films in the high digital quality in which they were recorded, so Film, Television and Theater (FTT) students will now benefit from the technology upgrade, Barron said. “It better reflects and showcases what the students are doing for FTT students who are making films,” he said. “The technology they’ve been using was incompatible with the projection capabilities we had.”  Barron said the project fits in with Notre Dame’s mission of leadership and excellence. “Professors are awestruck about the quality of the presentation they have,” he said. “This is a huge benefit to their academic mission. “Faculty can now make the best use of their resources in a way they have not before.”  This University-funded project, largely completed in June, marks the first major upgrade to the Browning Cinema since its 2004 opening, Barron said.  “This is the biggest change we’ve done to the cinema to ensure that it is around for years to come,” he said.last_img read more
