Affordable Housing, Rent Control and Measure V’s Battle Lines
October 14, 2016
“As the moms and pops that built our mobile home parks age out, predatory, out-of-town corporate investors have been taking over.”
– Measure V proponents
“Once rent control is adopted, politicians will – by the tenants’ votes – be giving the landlord’s property to the tenants. It happens all the time.”
– Sam Landy, CEO UMH Properties, not directly impacted by Measure V
These quotes are two of the many published perspectives over controversial Measure V - a Humboldt County, California ballot measure – which is on the front lines of the affordable housing conflicts in the Golden State.
Get Yourself Together Man!
October 18, 2016
Men are humble and uncomplicated creatures.
Unfortunately in today’s world of media influence and the pressure to conform to idealized, and sometimes less masculine, points of view it’s hard out there for a man.
is a new online men’s magazine that makes it slightly easier for those of us guys who need a little help figuring out where to draw the line.
CEO and Founder Tim Seidler thinks it’s an area of men’s health and wellness that is severely under-represented online.
“Guys, by nature, aren’t very likely to ask for help” says Seidler. He continues “…but if you can reach them at a place of interest and sneak in some gentle advice on what they could be doing better you’ve got an opportunity to help guys in the area of self-improvement.”
And don’t we all need to improve in one area of our life or another?
The site focuses on relationship, style, fitness,...

Tompkins Financial Advisors Provide Help in Understanding Risk Tolerance
October 14, 2016
Understanding Your Risk Tolerance
Do you fill the gas tank when it's half full or do you keep driving until the needle reaches empty? Do you brake when the traffic light turns yellow or do you accelerate through the intersection?
Your daily actions are a reflection of your attitude toward risk and your ability to accept or tolerate risk. In the world of investing, this can impact how you build a portfolio because you need to consider the level of risk you can handle as an investor, according to wealth advisor Matthew Forney, with Tompkins Financial Advisors in Ithaca, NY.
Risk Tolerance in Investing
When considering purchasing an investment, it is essential to evaluate two aspects of risk tolerance: (1) your capacity for risk, or ability to absorb losses; and (2) how comfortable you are with risk.
Your capacity for risk tolerance relates strictly to your financial situation, says Forney. The...

Neurodon Publishes Breakthrough Discovery for Parkinson's Disease Treatment
October 14, 2016
Neurodon LLC has recently published a breakthrough study that paves the way for a new, effective way to treat Parkinson's disease. The novel strategy focuses on a process called endoplasmic reticulum stress, or ER stress. Parkinson's disease is caused by the loss of dopamine-producing brain cells in certain areas of the brain. A major cause of this cell loss is ER stress, and Neurodon scientists have found a way to halt this ER stress. This article establishes the key link between ER stress and Parkinson's disease that is the primary step in developing a new medicine.
This report marks the first time a small molecule targeting this pathway has been effective in a model for Parkinson's disease, specifically the 6-OHDA model, which is the industry standard preclinical model to vet new Parkinson’s medications. The compound's efficacy in this model is comparable to the gold standard treatment Levodopa, which is metabolized by the body to produce dopamine....

Leading LA Private Eye heads to NYC to stop female Trump detractors.
October 15, 2016
I am Frank J Monte, arguably the world’s most famous private investigator, some say infamous. Whatever, after 50 years I’m still here. I’m writing this to dispel the notion that I’m dangerous. And because many detractors have labelled me less than legal, whereas I’ve never been found guilty of any wrong doing. So before I begin working for Mr. Trump’s good name I wish to highlight what the press said about me when I showed a young lady wishing to enrich herself of $37 million that she was a total fraud. I believe by now that Mr. Trump’s detractors are of the same ilk.
I am often referred to as Los Angeles’ best, [formerly New York City’s, 1990’s], most infamous licensed private eye.
I’m the man who destroyed the Versace’s Fashion House’s chances of growing into a publicly traded company, I alleged publicly and in my auto-biography ‘The Spying Game’ [Pan...
