Main Street leader was focused on food and friends

first_imgHomeFeaturedMain Street leader was focused on food and friends Jun. 19, 2019 at 6:45 amFeaturedFoodNewsObituaryMain Street leader was focused on food and friendsMadeleine Pauker2 years agoDonald PaonessaEsquire JauchemLe Secret SupperLeslie PaonessaRon Shelton’s Bull DurhamSan Fernando ValleySUPPER: Paonessa was beloved for many things, including her supper club. A longtime resident of Santa Monica known for her longtime supper club died last month at age 73 following a two-year bout with ovarian cancer.Leslie Paonessa grew up in the San Fernando Valley, where she attended Birmingham High School and California State University, Northridge. She moved to Santa Monica in 1985 and worked as a script consultant and later a private chef. Paonessa evaluated hundreds of scripts over the course of her career, most notably Ron Shelton’s Bull Durham.In the last seven years of her life, she hosted “Le Secret Supper,” which she founded with close friend Esquire Jauchem. She invited about 20 people to Jauchem’s historic Venice home once a month and cooked them a six-course meal. Paonessa created a unique menu for each dinner of “creative comfort cuisine with global influences,” as she told the Daily Press in 2014. She went to the Santa Monica Farmers Market every Wednesday and knew each vendor by name, Jauchem said.Jauchem said she got the inspiration for “Le Secret Supper” from supper clubs in San Francisco and he believes she organized the only such club on the Westside. While the club started with their friends and then friends of friends, the circle widened over the years, he said. “It was a very eclectic group,” he said. “There were always new faces and even visitors from out of the country. People would meet and become friends.”Jauchem said the supper club gave Paonessa a sense of satisfaction that she couldn’t get as a private chef.“She cooked food for people and never saw them eat it,” he said. “While she might hear from them the next day that they really liked the meal, she never saw them enjoy the food. It was a special treat for her to watch people react to her cooking.”Paonessa’s niece Sharon Heller attended Paonessa’s last dinner party with her closest friends, including her ex-husband 19. Heller said her aunt planned the dinner as carefully as she always did.“It was so important to her that we did it just right,” Heller said. “We went to five different stores for ingredients. Every detail was so important to her.”Her passion for food was an extension of her love of art and culture, Heller said. Paonessa gave her niece the first two records she ever owned: one by the B-52s and another by Blondie.“Leslie was always the hip, cool aunt,” Heller said.Paonessa was most enthusiastic about film, however. She went to the movies at least once a week, Heller said, and avidly kept up with the latest developments in filmmaking.“We would have these fun conversations, where she would say “have you seen this movie that came out last month?” and my answer was always no,” Heller said. “To her, it was like I was almost from another planet because I didn’t live and breathe movies like she did.”Paonessa also headed the Main Street Merchants Association in its early years, where she was instrumental in getting the street decorated for the holidays, Jauchem said. Her efforts ultimately resulted in the permanent lighting strands that now illuminate Main Street.Jauchem said Paonessa loved Santa Monica, especially its restaurant scene. She told him she felt a real sense of community in the city for the first time in her life.“When I look at those lights on Main Street, I remember her,” he said.Along with her friends in Santa Monica, Paonessa is survived by her sister Susan Bloch, her nieces Kate and Sharon and her nephew Mitchell.

ZTE kicks off crowdsourced mobile device project

first_img Devices ZTE readies dual-mode 5G flagship ZTE gains China approval for first 5G smartphone Tags ZTE’s US arm launched Project CSX, working toward a crowdsourced mobile device it will launch in 2017.The company’s member forum, Z-Community, will serve as “the platform for ideation and feedback through the entire development process”. The project will be broken into two stages where users can submit and vote for their favourite ideas.Lixin Cheng, chairman and CEO of ZTE USA, said: “This is the first time a phone manufacturer is stepping out and crowdsourcing something entirely new, from start to finish. It’s a bold approach for the industry that demonstrates how ZTE keeps consumers at the heart of everything we imagine, design and deliver.”Submissions are held to three rules: it must be a mobile product, the technology must be realistically possible by 2017, and the final product “must be affordable for the general population”.ZTE has talked about Project CSX before, noting it has already used customer input in device development elsewhere.

Malta cancels EUR5.5 million commercial rooftop scheme

first_imgMalta cancels EUR5.5 million commercial rooftop schemeThe government from the small Mediterranean country of Malta has cancelled a EUR5.5 million program aimed at encouraging commercial or industrial rooftop solar installations. August 20, 2013 Jonathan Gifford Legal Markets Markets & Policy Share In the face of spiraling electricity costs and a requirement to meet European renewable energy targets, Malta’s government has been turning to rooftop solar in a number of schemes. However the latest, which aimed to encourage rooftop installations on commercial or industrial properties has been cancelled. The scheme was to be cofounded by the EU. Yesterday Malta Enterprise announced that the Solar Energy Grant Scheme 2013 had been cancelled, due to “problems encountered in the process of pre-selection of suppliers.” The scheme had required installers to preregister before funds for various projects were to be made available. The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) was the EU funding body involved with the incentive program and Malta Enterprise said that it was consulted before the cancellation was announced. Maltese renewable energy researcher Charles Yousif told pv magazine that detailed reasons for the cancellation have not been announced at this stage, however the government has attributed it to “technical reasons.” Yousif, from the University of Malta’s Institute for Sustainable Energy said that it is likely that applicants that were not successful in applying for approval for the scheme had likely raised objections. “This probably created a counter-reaction from these unsuccessful entities, which halted the whole process,” Yousif told pv magazine. The government has indicated it will use the money set aside for the scheme elsewhere. Malta’s opposition party yesterday demanded that the government gives a detailed explanation of the incident. The September edition of pv magazine will feature an article about the solar industry in Malta and the exponential growth it is currently experiencing.

Solar eclipse chance to test grid response, say European technicians

first_imgSolar eclipse chance to test grid response, say European techniciansSolar power loss expected to be minimal, but event offers unprecedented opportunity to assess the impact of small oscillations on national grids across affected areas in Europe. March 19, 2015 Ian Clover Installations Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share Friday morning’s solar eclipse will cause only minimal disruption to European power grids, scientists say, but will offer an unprecedented opportunity to better understand how grids react to sudden losses of power failure. In the U.K., which will experience a partial eclipse of around 85%, it is expected that more than half of the 5.5 GW of installed solar PV capacity will be lost during the hour-long eclipse, but a spokesperson for the U.K. National Grid told the Guardian that there would be no danger of a blackout. “It is the kind of event that we forecast for all the time and lots of other generation is available,” said the spokesperson. “The eclipse isn’t happening at peak time so we can comfortably make up the difference.” Technicians working on the U.K. grid also anticipate that because many people will stop what they are doing to observe the astronomical event, power demand will fall by such a level to largely offset any solar shortfall. Equally, if the weather is overcast as expected, then the effect on the grid will also be negligible. Europe-wide, the eclipse is expected to trigger a loss of power equivalent to eight-to-ten large coal power plants going down, for a period of between 60-90 minutes. The dip in power will be less marked due to the expected cloudy weather, but technicians from the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (Entso-E) have nevertheless taken all measures required to mitigate the risk. “It is very unlikely there will be any incidents,” said an Entso-E spokeswoman. In fact, many technicians and scientists working with grid integration are excited by the chance to analyze just what impact – if any – the eclipse will have on the grid. “I’m certainly not saying there will be a catastrophic cascading of blackouts,” said Oxford University’s Professor Alessandro Abate. “The only thing that is going to happen is there will be a bit of a dimming in renewable production and we are interested in understanding this slight variation, these small oscillations, that will propagate over the grid.” The European Photovoltaic Industry Association said that because the time, location and duration of the eclipse is known in advance, grid operators have been able to duly prepare. “Everyday demand is more volatile than the solar eclipse and grid operators are able to keep the system running and have done so for almost a century.” In Italy, which has the highest rate of connected solar PV penetration in the world, transmission grid operator Terna will switch off large-scale PV plants over 100 kW for 24 hours in order to mitigate any effect their sudden power losses could have on the grid. Germany, which has Europe’s largest portfolio of connected PV, has no such plans to do likewise, pv magazine understands.Popular content The Hydrogen Stream: 20 MW green hydrogen plant in Finland, two Australian projects move forward Sergio Matalucci 20 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy want to set up a 20 MW blue hydrogen production facility in the U.K. Australia’s Origin Energy wants to build a hy… Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

Canadian Dressage Team Named for World Equestrian Games

first_imgMore from Horse Sport:Christilot Boylen Retires From Team SportAfter an exemplary career as one of Canada’s top Dressage riders, seven-time Olympian Christilot Boylen has announced her retirement from team competition.2020 Royal Agricultural Winter Fair CancelledFor only the second time in its history, The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair has been cancelled but plans are being made for some virtual competitions.Royal Agricultural Winter Fair Statement on 2020 EventAs the Province of Ontario starts to reopen, The Royal’s Board and staff will adhere to all recommendations put forward by government and health officials.Government Financial Assistance for Ontario FarmersOntario Equestrian has recently released this update of several financial assistance packages available, including those for farm business. SIGN UP Horse Sport Enews Dressage Canada is pleased to announce Ashley Holzer, Belinda Trussell, Bonny Bonnello and Victoria Winter as the riders who will be representing Canada at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) to be held in Lexington, KY September 25—October 10, 2010.Three-time Canadian Olympian Ashley Holzer of Toronto, ON, will ride her 2008 Olympic partner Pop Art (Amsterdam x Cabochon), a 13-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding owned by Rusty Holzer and Moreen Nicoll. This pair has consistently won Grand Prix classes in North America and earned an average qualification score of 72.329%. Currently ranked 14th in the world, Holzer and Pop Art just returned from a successful tour in Europe where they won the Grand Prix Freestyle in CDI 3* Lingen with a score of 76.300% and secured a bronze medal finish for the Canadian Dressage Team in the CDIO Rotterdam Nations’ Cup.Also a member of the recent European Tour, Belinda Trussell of Newmarket, ON, was on Canada’s 2004 Olympic Dressage Team. She has qualified for WEG with Anton (Antaeus x Melit), a 10-year-old German-bred gelding owned by Robyn Eames. The pair have been competing at the Grand Prix level for just one year, but they have quickly progressed to the top of the class, earning an average qualification score of 69.595%, which includes Grand Prix scores of 70.638% at the Wellington CDI3* and 70.213% at Lexington CDI3*.\Bonny Bonnello’s participation in the European Tour with Pikardi (Point Maker x Daimont), a 13-year-old Canadian Warmblood gelding co-owned by Bonnello and Jean Bell, marks her comeback as a member of the Canadian Equestrian Team. Bonnello, of Calgary, AB, rode at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles as a member of the Canadian Dressage Team. This expertise is the reason why she was able to take the relatively green Pikardi all the way up the ranks to score 68.638% in the Grand Prix test at Lexington CDI3* and qualify for the team with an average of 66.932%.Victoria Winter of Toronto, ON, a member of Canada’s Dressage Team at the 1996 World Equestrian Games, will ride Proton, Neil and Cindy Ishoy’s 16-year-old Baden-Wurttemburger gelding sired by Patriarch. Winter remained in North America to earn qualification scores and a spot on the 2010 Canadian WEG Dressage Team. The duo received a 67.064% at Lexington CDI3* and 66.809% at Wellington CDI3*, which contributed to their overall average of 66.745%.The two reserve combinations for the Team will be Wendy Christoff of Delta, BC, riding Pfalstaff, her 16-year-old Hanoverian gelding sired by Paladium, and Evi Strasser of Sainte Adele, QC, and Quantum Tyme, her 15-year-old Oldenburg gelding sired by Quattro. Christoff and Pfalstaff had an average qualifying score of 66.329%, and Strasser and Quantum Tyme had a four score average of 66.213%.Both Cheryl Meisner of Blandford, NS, and Paganini, John Risley’s 13-year-old Dutch Warmblood stallion (Havidoff x Statuar), and Shannon Dueck of Loxachatchee, FL and her nine-year-old Oldenburg mare, Ayscha, by Welt Hit II, had earned positions as reserve riders on the team but decided to remain Europe to compete. This decision to remain in Europe made the unexpected complexities of quarantine restrictions such that they could not make themselves available to the team as reserve riders.“All of these riders have shown tremendous effort and made great sacrifices to be where they are in the standings. I am very proud to be associated with all of them,” said Dressage Canada Technical Coach/Advisor, Robert Dover, who will also be the team coach at WEG. “The six combinations will have their final training camp starting September 15th at Woodspring Farm, the home of Kathy Priest and Dr. Gary Priest, DVM, near the Kentucky Horse Park. I congratulate all the riders as well as their horse owners and supporters and look forward to very successful Games.”“I commend the jobs of both Cheryl Meisner and Shannon Dueck and respect their decisions to remain in Europe with their horses to do further competitions, and I know they will be a strong credit to the Canadian Team in the future. I also want to congratulate both Wendy Christoff and Evi Strasser who have been named as reserve riders for this year’s team,” he added.“I look forward to working again with and for all of these athletes in their efforts to achieve their team and individual goals,” said chef d’équipe, Gwynne Rooke.
