Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Diversity News Publications

Filed under Editorial, Featured, Holidays

Happy Thanksgiving 2011Our editorial, photography, marketing and public relation teams wish you and your family a “Happy Safe Thanksgiving Day and Weekend.”

Have you ever wonder what is Thanksgiving? and why is been celebrated? Wikipedia.org describes as follows:

 

Thanksgiving, or Thanksgiving Day, is a holiday celebrated in the United States on the fourth Thursday in November. It has officially been an annual tradition since 1863, when during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of thanksgiving to be celebrated on Thursday, November 26.[1] As a federal and popular holiday in the U.S., Thanksgiving is one of the major holidays of the year. Together with Christmas and the New Year, Thanksgiving is a part of the broader holiday season.

The event that Americans commonly call the “First Thanksgiving” was celebrated to give thanksto God for guiding them safely to the New World.[2] The first Thanksgiving feast lasted three days, providing enough food for 13 Pilgrims and 90 Native Americans.[3] The feast consisted offish (codeels, and bass) and shellfish (clamslobster, and mussels), wild fowl (ducksgeese,swans, and turkey), venisonberries and fruitvegetables (peaspumpkinbeetroot and possibly, wild or cultivated onion), harvest grains (barley and wheat), and the Three Sisters:beans, dried Indian maize or corn, and squash.[2][4][5][6] The New England colonists were accustomed to regularly celebrating “thanksgivings”—days of prayer thanking God for blessings such as military victory or the end of a drought.[7]

John F Kennedy turkey pardonDate

Since being fixed at the fourth Thursday in November by law in 1941, the holiday in the United States can occur on any date from November 22 to November 28. When it falls on November 22 or 23, it is not the last Thursday, but the penultimate Thursday in November. As it is a Federal holiday, all United States government offices are closed and employees are paid for that day. It is also a holiday for the New York Stock Exchange and most other financial markets and financial services companies.

DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING

The day after Thanksgiving is a day off for some companies and many schools. It is popularly known as Black Friday, because of the heavy shopping that day helps put retailers’ books back into black. Black Friday has been considered by retailers to be the start of the Christmas shopping season since as early as the 1930s.

2011 Honda Los Angeles Marathon presented by K‐Swiss on March 20th

February 6, 2011 by  
Filed under Community, Featured, News, Uncategorized

LA Marathon 2011The 26th running of the Honda LA Marathon presented by K‐Swiss will take place on Sunday, March 20, 2011 on the nation’s most dramatic marathon course, from Dodger Stadium to the Pacific Ocean.
Wireless from AT&T
A visit to Los Angeles often includes landmarks such as Dodger Stadium, Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood, the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills and the beaches in Santa Monica for a dip in the Pacific Ocean.
Imagine seeing them all . . . without a single car in front of you! It’s possible only for participants in the 26th Honda LA Marathon presented by K-Swiss on March 20, 2011.


“The morning was perfect,” said 2010 runner-up Richard Limo of Kenya, who made his firstever visit to Los Angeles for the race last year. “The run to the sea was great. Mile 24 [on San Vicente Boulevard] was a great place to see balloons and flowers and the breeze from the ocean was really great.”
Although the race has been among the top-ten marathons in the world since its inception in 1986, the new Stadium to the Sea course – from Dodger Stadium to Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica – helped to set a new record of 26,054 registrants for the 2010 race. And registrations are coming in briskly for 2011.
“There will be no race-day registration for the Honda LA Marathon in 2011,” noted LA MARATHON LLC Chief Operating Officer Nick Curl. “We had to cut off registration early last year and we’re asking people to register now and not be disappointed at the last minute.”
Race registration is easy and takes only minutes on the race Web site, www.LAMarathon.com.


Out-of-town runners are being welcomed with excellent hotel options, either close to the start in downtown Los Angeles, or close to the finish in Santa Monica, Venice and Marina del Rey, beginning at $99 per night (plus applicable taxes). A menu of five downtown hotels and 18 Santa Monica-area properties is available through the “Travel” section of the Marathon Web
LadyFootlocker.com
site, with full details on pricing and complimentary raceday transportation options from both areas to the start at Dodger Stadium, and from the finish in Santa Monica back to the official downtown hotels.
All runners receive a specially-prepared “technical shirt” for raceday, with a specially-struck commemorative medal waiting at the finish line, and a finisher’s certificate which can be retrieved electronically after the race results are certified.
Champs Sports (Footlocker.com, Inc.)
Looking back on the record-setting 2010 race, many of the runners agreed with women’s runner-up Teyba Naser of Ethiopia that “I enjoyed the course, especially the scene as we approached the finish area at the beach.” The same excitement awaits those who register in time to be included in the 2011 edition on March 20.

The race records are 2:08:24 for men (Wesley Korir of Kenya in 2009) and 2:25:39 for women  (Tatiana Petrova of Russia in 2009).

CSI Actress Jorja Fox Co-Produces Documentary “How I Became An Elephant”

Jorja Fox

By Songirl Sez, Special For Diversity News
Wireless from AT&T
On Thursday, December 2, 2010 at 9:30pm there was a pre-release special screening at the Artivist Film Festival of the documentary “How I Became An Elephant” produced by Jorja Fox and Tim Gorski. Due to incredible demand, the exclusive screening was held in the large movie theater at the Egyptian in Hollywood. The pre-release was originally scheduled for Saturday, December 4th in a smaller theater but was re-scheduled to accommodate a beyond sold-out audience of over 400 enthusiasts.

Directed by Award winning film makers, Tim Gorski and Synthian Sharp, this “Rattle The Cage Productions” documentary tells the heartwarming and heartwrenchheart-wrenching14 year old girl, Juliette West who journeys to Thailand to meet up with Asia’s famed Elephant savior, Lek Chailert. With love in their hearts and determination in their minds, Lek and Juliette set out to rescue the female elephant, Ratree, a severely abused 35 year-old elephant, from the Surin Elephant Roundup. Volunteers and the RTC film production crew made the 22 hour trip by truck to transport Ratree (which means Midnight, because she was their “midnight girl”), to her new home at the Elephant Nature Park. The film details what elephants go through overseas, with a short capsulization of their treatment in the United States. When asked about the film, Jorja Fox said “This movie is about elephants, it’s for elephants. It’s for our kids and their kids. But it applies to all the world’s animals, and the environment as a whole.” Film goer Melody said “I cried. They are such beautiful animals. I just can’t understand how people could treat them badly. How could someone see the pain and sadness in the eyes of any living creature and still hurt it?” When other audience members were asked to comment, the reactions seemed to be the same. Jean said “It was dreadful to see those majestic creatures treated so badly.” She went on to say “as for the Circus, I have never been and would never go.” Last Change For Animals undercover investigator Bryan stated “this is a must see movie for any one who is conscious. Whether you’re an elephant expert or have never seen an elephant before, you will learn something and be moved to action by this film.” Shop our Free Shipping Collection at 1-800-BASKETS.COM - 468x60
