Love Ride’s move: Castaic to Pomona

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.“We are definitely going to miss the beauty of Castaic Lake,” Shokouh said. “We are going to also miss the tremendous support the Castaic community gave us for 14 years.” In Pomona, the Love Ride will be able to accommodate more than double the number of vendors it had in Castaic, growing from 80 to 200. “We can grow to be 10 times the size we were at Castaic, not that we want to get that big,” Shokouh said. “If we did get that big, the Pomona Fairplex will be able to accommodate that growth.” The event is slated to be held at the Fairplex for the next five years, he said. Musician Gregg Allman will headline this year’s entertainment. In Castaic, event attendees experienced some parking problems and traffic tie-ups with 12,000 to 14,000 motorcycle riders arriving at the lake at the same time. “The lake was just not designed for parking that many vehicles at once,” Shokouh said. The Fairplex, home of the L.A. County Fair, has parking for 50,000 cars, he said. The move has left some in Castaic heartbroken. “Most of the businesses and residents that I have talked to are disappointed it’s leaving,” said Ray Graeber, treasurer of the Castaic Chamber of Commerce and Friends of Castaic Lake. “It’s a chance to showcase our town and especially our lake facility.” At the 7-Eleven on Castaic Road and Lake Hughes Road, manager Inder Singh said the store was packed in past years for three or four hours during the day of the Love Ride. Forget finding a parking spot at the store on that day. “If it is not happening this year, it is going to hurt,” Singh said. jerry.berrios@dailynews.com (661) 257-5254160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Love Ride, the annual motorcycle event that has poured thousands of “hogs” and their riders into Castaic Lake for the past 14 years, is moving this year to the Fairplex in Pomona. Event organizers decided to join forces with the inaugural California Bike Week sponsored by 75 Harley-Davidson dealerships, said Love Ride founder Oliver Shokouh. Bike week events will start Nov. 9, with the Love Ride capping the festivities Nov. 11. The Castaic Lake Recreation Area just wouldn’t have worked for all the planned activities. last_img read more

Hamas offers to restore cease-fire with Israel

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2The truce, declared in February 2005, greatly reduced Palestinian-Israeli violence that claimed more than 3,000 lives in the four years before. But Hamas called it off after a June 9 explosion on a Gaza beach that killed eight Palestinian civilians. Israel was shelling Gaza around that time, but insisted it was not responsible for the explosion. Hamas sent its own rocket squads to fire at Israel alongside Islamic Jihad and other militants. Dozens of rockets pelted Israel, many exploding in the town of Sderot, just outside the Gaza fence, badly wounding one Israeli. The barrages have tapered off somewhat in the last day, an indication that Hamas was sidelining its militants. Islamic Jihad fired five rockets Thursday. GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip – The Hamas-led Palestinian government offered Thursday to restore a cease-fire with Israel, nearly a week after calling off the truce to protest a deadly explosion on a Gaza beach. Israel responded favorably, signaling that both sides are prepared to step back from fighting that threatened to escalate into a broader conflict. However, violence flared again late Thursday when three Palestinian militants were killed in an Israeli airstrike on the Gaza-Israel border. The military said the three were from the small militant group Islamic Jihad and added they were trying to plant bombs. Palestinian hospital officials said only two bodies were recovered. A Hamas official said the group was in touch with other Gaza militants to try to halt daily rocket barrages against Israel, which set off punishing Israeli air and artillery retaliation. last_img read more

Big Data: Businesses Still Uncertain how to Use the Technology

4 Questions You Should be Asking as You Prep Your Mobile Strategy for 2014

first_imgWhat tasks will be performed on the device? Companies need to weigh the long-term pros and cons of device decisions. While some devices might be best suited to one environment (i.e., multimedia display in the field), other devices may better support other areas of the business (i.e., back-office work, document creation). Will we strictly issue company devices or permit a bring-your- own-device (BYOD) environment? How will this decision affect data and network security?Opens in a new window How will it affect the usability of existing and future software purchases in need of support on multiple operating systems? Where should we locate our data? How sensitive is the data being used? Does local storage of information on the device make sense to improve performance and offline availability, or is the data better suited to the cloudOpens in a new window for security reasons? As industry experts roll out their end-of-year retrospectives and their predictions for 2014, one thing is obvious:  mobile will continue to have a significantly disruptive effect on business in the upcoming year. Forbes recently predictedOpens in a new window that in 2014, businesses will be “putting remote wipe and encryption software on personal devices, as well as mobile virtual workspaces that separate work data in a separate, encrypted area on a user’s personal device;” and  dealing with blurred boundaries as “employees complete work during evening and weekend hours, as well as on vacation.” As you examine your organization’s 2013 internal mobile projects and prepare for 2014, what are the questions you should be asking yourself? The analysts at IDC Health Insights offer the following guidelines:With mobility now a core attribute of IT strategy rather than an optional add-on, there are many best practices and key areas of concern that companies need to contemplate when approaching their mobility strategies. Important questions that companies need to ask themselves include: center_img How long must the battery last per charge? Will the device be used by people with regular access to electrical outlets, or must the battery last from 8 hours to 12 hours per charge for employees out in the field? In addition to these questions, one of the most important topics that companies need to address is mobile device management. Companies are integrating mobile capabilities into all aspects of the business, and as the business mobilizes its employees, and more importantly, their data, the ability to remotely secure, lock/unlock, and wipe data from a mobile device will become critically important to corporate security and protection of data covered.

How Does 2015 J.W. Rudolph Compare to 2011 Brandon Weeden?

Rudolph (2015)63%32614713418 Stats, I have them.Forget about the running game just for a minute (I know this is difficult). Let’s talk about the two-headed monster at QB Mike Gundy has in J.W. Walsh + Mason Rudolph (the best two-headed monster at QB for an OSU team in 2015 so far?)Rudolph has been solid for all but about five quarters this year and Walsh has been pretty much perfect. A leader, a closer in the red zone and basically an extra running back on a team not deep with running backs.It’s been a hodgepodge, but it’s also been pretty good. So how does it compare to the best QB season in Oklahoma State history (i.e. Brandon Weeden in 2011)? It’s closer than you might think.Pretty interesting, right? Now Weeden had RBs vulturing a ton of TDs whereas these guys pretty much have to create all their scores on their own. But still. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Brandon Weeden was a whirlwind of absolute greatness — the best OSU has ever had. But these two dudes? They’re not so bad either.last_img read more
