Adebayo consented to the imposition of the conditions.However, despite four attempts (March 13, March 16, April 13, and May 28), Adebayo did not pass the CPH exam.As a result, OSC staff concluded that she failed to comply with the conditions on her registration, and it sought her suspension.“In staff’s view, Adebayo’s inability to successfully pass the CPH after four attempts, demonstrates that she currently lacks the requisite proficiency of a registered individual,” the OSC decision states.According to the decision, Adebayo did not request a hearing to oppose that recommendation.

Gym owner switches gear to reopen cycle studio

How do you feel like you can make it succeed?” but Sklar-Mulcahy said in an interview Tuesday that she’s quite confident she will be able to replicate the success of her Culver City studio.About 14 years ago, Sklar-Mulcahy got involved in the AIDS LifeCycle ride where she participated in a nearly 550 mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles in an effort to raise money for HIV and AIDS research.“It’s a really incredible event, because you have all these people that are like pedaling towards one goal and there’s all these volunteers that are looking after you and it’s really a perfect world — We call it the love bubble,” Sklar-Mulcahy said. “You don’t have to spend money, you don’t have to buy food, your gear is carried for you…. and you finish the ride and it’s like, ‘How do I go back into the world after I just lived in this utopia for seven days?’”Sklar-Mulcahy said was hooked from the first ride and soon after set a goal to find a place where she could make the love bubble happen every day.“So when I found CycleBar and I opened it, it was the perfect place where I could create this community where everybody is happy to be here. And I think we’ve done that in Culver City,” Sklar-Mulcahy said, mentioning how she has received letters and praise from past clients thanking her for creating a gym with a family-like atmosphere.“And, what we’re really hoping to do now is to copy the success that we’ve had over in Culver, which is really create an inclusive community where people of all ages, shapes, sizes, feel comfortable to come and work out and also just feel welcome,” Sklar-Mulcahy said, because the gym is about more than burning calories.“It’s really about coming in and creating a space where people feel safe and welcomed because you never know what people are going through outside your doors, so we just want to make sure that they feel the love when they’re indoors with us,” Sklar-Mulcahy said, “because that when the fun happens.”CycleBar Santa Monica is set to begin hosting classes on Jan. 17th, and local residents are encouraged to visit its website — santamonica.cyclebar.com — to sign up for as many as three free classes.“One thing that sets us apart from other studios is that once you get in our doors, everything is included,” Sklar-Mulcahy said, mentioning the gym’s towel, shower and shoe rental services. “So you decide to bring yourself to the studio along with a change your clothes and we got you from there.”Sklar-Mulcahy added there are a few different class times to choose from depending on one’s preference.“As we grow, we’re going to have a little bit of a limited schedule because we’re testing a few of the times once we first open as we build our membership base,” Sklar-Mulcahy said. “So to the people who are saying, ‘I want more classes.’ Invite your friends.” There’s plenty of room in the 2500 square feet gym featuring nightclub lights and [email protected] :cycle studioCycleBar Culver CityGym ownerSteph Sklar-Mulcahyshare on Facebookshare on Twittershow 2 comments 1221 2nd Street, Santa Monica, CA 90401 Stellar reporting.

Workforce Flux Also City Consideration in Proposed LNG

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Kenai City Manager Rick Koch recently returned from the International City/County Manager Association conference where he was able to speak with other city managers affected by oil development like the proposed LNG Project in Nikiski. Koch said that although he feels the City of Kenai is doing good at preparing for the possible changes, keeping the topic alive helps maintain the delivery of current services. He said he spoke with one city manager in North Dakota… He said one topic he has been contemplating lately is workforce flux. Koch: “The workforce that we have now will become more mobile because of the tremendous amount of opportunities they may have for higher paying jobs, for positions that may better fit their personal choices for where they want to work. And we’ll be left to respond to that, the other night I may have made the statement that we can lose as much as 40% of our workforce when theres a 12 billion dollar project happening five miles away from us.” Koch anticipates a variety of jobs could be available on a large-scale job like the LNG Project from office to laborer to operator. Koch: “It’s a little bit more of the wild west there then I expect it to be here. They find themselves losing, like in the public works department, a gentle told me the public works department that was comprised of 12 employees, they lost all of them, they all went to work in the oil patch.”last_img read more

Lynch second in Swiss World Cup class a boost for Irish Olympic hopes

first_imgHome  »  General  »  Lynch second in Swiss World Cup class a boost for Irish Olympic hopes 31 January 2016, 16:53 TIPPERARY’s Denis Lynch continued his brilliant run of form, with a runner-up finish in today’s (Sunday) five-star Longines World Cup Class at Zurich in Switzerland.The second place finish netted Lynch €40,000 and gives him a great chance of making the World Cup finals at the end of March. It also boosts Ireland’s hopes of securing a second individual place at the Olympic Games in Rio.Riding the Thomas Straumann-owned stallion All Star, Lynch was narrowly pipped for victory by Swiss rider Pius Schwizer and PSG Future, who scored a win in front of their home fans.It was the third time in a fortnight that Lynch and All Star finished second in a major five-star contest as part of a charge up the Olympic ranking list.They were runners-up in the last World Cup round at Leipzig in Germany and also finished second in the Longines Grand Prix in Zurich on Friday night.This latest result increases Ireland’s hopes of qualifying two individual riders for the Show Jumping competition at the Olympic Games in Rio.Bertram Allen looks likely to secure a place for Ireland based on his current Olympic ranking but the result today will move Denis Lynch into strong contention to take a second place for Ireland ahead of the cut off date on March 6th.While the places are secured by individual riders, Olympic places are allocated to the country of the riders involved.Photo above: Tipperary’s Denis Lynch and All Star in action at Zurich in Switzerland where they finished second in both the Grand Prix and World Cup (Photo: Katja Stuppia) Lynch second in Swiss World Cup class a boost for Irish Olympic hopes Tags:last_img read more

Explaining Alabama, Tennessee’s cigar-smoking tradition after winning ‘Third Saturday in October’

first_imgUnfortunately for Vols fans, their team hasn’t been able to partake in the cigar smoking in recent years. Alabama has won 12 straight games dating back to 2007, the longest win streak in the rivalry. But even though Nick Saban has dominated this rivalry, don’t expect to see him smoking a cigar after the game.The coach doesn’t smoke, and doesn’t want to start just because it’s tradition. But he won’t stop his players from celebrating. No matter who wins Saturday’s rivalry game between Alabama and Tennessee, the winners will be smoking cigars.Why? Because it’s a tradition the two schools share in this long-standing rivalry. Alabama and Tennessee have played each other 101 times, with the first game starting in 1901. But the cigar tradition started much later than that. (YouTube) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/78/d7/tennessee-cigar_p54toxma3zga1r2w19r8l65z3.png?t=-451896675&w=500&quality=80 Winners Circle . #WeLoveYou28A post shared by Derrick Henry (@last_king_2) on Oct 24, 2015 at 5:28pm PDTAnd while the tradition started with Alabama, Tennessee has taken part in the festivities as well. View this post on Instagram “I know it’s something that a lot of people really enjoy,” Saban said in 2013. “It’s not a tradition I started. It’s a tradition that was here that the players have continued. I think it’s something they have fun with. I’m happy that they do. Not really something that I’m interested in.”The tradition was ramped up even more in 2018 after former Tennessee coach Butch Jones — then an Alabama assistant — had a picture taken of him smoking a cigar in the aftermath of Alabama’s 58-21 win, despite never getting to do so as the Vols’ coach.You know what’s still hilariousThat Butch Jones has smoked more cigars than Tennessee has in the last 10 years #TennesseeHateWeek pic.twitter.com/Z5fa84HrG1— Kirby Smart is Nick Saban’s son (@BuiltBySaban) October 16, 2019We’ll see who is smoking Saturday night as Alabama and Tennessee face off once more. MORE: Alabama vs. Tennessee odds, trends, predictionIn a deep explainer of the rivalry, the Tuscaloosa News places the origin during the 1961 matchup:The story most commonly told traces the tradition to the late Jim Goostree, a longtime Alabama athletic trainer who graduated from Tennessee. Going into the 1961 game, Alabama hadn’t beaten Tennessee since 1954 (there was a 7-7 tie in 1959). Goostree told the team he’d dance naked in the locker room if Alabama won.The Crimson Tide secured a 34-3 win at Birmingham’s Legion Field. Goostree danced while smoking a cigar. Players wanted a cigar to celebrate, too. Longtime Alabama assistant Ken Donahue, another Tennessee alumnus, arrived in 1964 and further stoked the rivalry.The article also explains the athletic department would provide cigars for the players, but kept it secret from the NCAA due to concerns it would be punished for providing players with extra benefits and allowing tobacco products in the locker room. Alabama publicly reinstated the tradition in 2005, and has since reported it as a secondary violation to the NCAA with every win. But surprisingly, the NCAA makes an exception for this.last_img read more

Shaw and Davies set the standard

first_imgThe Players Lounge Monthly ScrambleTuesday, June 16, saw The Players Lounge hold its very first monthly 2-man scramble, played at Phoenix Golf Club.  It is hoped that this tournament becomes a regular fixture on the Pattaya golf scene and, judging by the success of this one, it seems highly likely to do just that. For a first time event a very creditable forty two players turned out and we would like to extend our thanks to all of those players and invite them to join us for the next comp at Emerald golf club on July 14.Bob Newell (centre) with scramble winners Nick Shaw and Phil Davies. As ever at this time of the year we are very much in the hands of the weather gods and, certainly early on, it looked like we were going to be unlucky and get severely soaked.  However, after a brief few showers, the wind blew them away and we continued our round in blistering heat.We put a slight twist into the format, making each player take 6 drives each but also having to take 3 on each nine, which certainly made good tactics a priority.  We anticipated that scoring would be difficult but was pleasantly surprised by the extremely high level of play.  We had numerous net 68’s and 67’s but that just didn’t cut it today.Returning a score of 65.2, the pairing of Steve Balfour and Karen Craigie came in a commendable third place and they were rightly very pleased with their efforts.  In second spot with a score of 64.4 were John McHugh and Jez Lees.  Anyone who has been golfing in Pattaya for any length of time will know these two stalwarts.  Johnnie’s prodigious length off the tee still remains as ever but it now seems that love has given him a short game too.  Jez is, well, Jez …no one lives up to his nick name more appropriately, ‘The Enigma’!Victorious today and claiming the engraved lead crystal tankards were Nick Shaw and Phil Davies with a fantastic total of 62.8.  All conversation ceased when the sound of breaking glass happened just as Nick was tilting the box to take a photo, followed by a collective sigh when we all realised it wasn’t one of the trophies.  Congratulations boys on a great round.Back at the bar we enjoyed a delicious curry, wings and spring rolls provided by Moo and her kitchen people and Nut, Dion and the girls did a great job keeping the refreshments flowing.Courtesy of Roachy, our professional caddy and business partner, we held a terrific raffle with some fantastic prizes (and I hope Sal liked his ‘special’ prize at the end).We’d like to give thanks to Bob at the Billabong and all the guys from there who supported us, and finally a word of appreciation to the boys from Pattaya Cricket Club who turned out to play, it was great to see you all and I hope you’ll be out with us again.last_img read more
