During a one-hour assembly students are treated to a lively presentation introducing them to the various instruments and sounds of a symphony orchestra.“We are so grateful to United Charity Foundation for helping us to provide musical enrichment to children in this community,” said Vikki Sung, President of PSHA. “Being exposed to this could really inspire a child to play a musical instrument in the future.”United Charity Foundation was started by San Marino residents, Dr. Carl Moy and Mrs. Linda Moy, first generation Chinese and Taiwanese immigrants that came to the Los Angeles area in the early 1980’s. Dr. Moy is an esteemed healthcare professional and Mrs. Moy is a successful business woman and entrepreneur. They founded United Charity Foundation in 2004 because they “wanted to give back to the community we live in.”“There are so many diverse communities in the area that could benefit from our support,” said Dr. Moy. “We want children to be able to seek higher education, to learn about their culture and to experience music and the arts.”Through the foundation the Moys have supported many local non-profit organizations including the Pasadena Symphony, Five Acres, Huntington Library and Gardens and the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse. In addition to their support of non-profit organizations in the community, the Moys also provide scholarships to Pasadena City College students who demonstrate high academic achievement, leadership and commitment.Mrs. Moy said she learned about PSHA’s Music MobileTM program when her home was selected as the 1999 Pasadena Showcase House of Design, the annual fundraiser PSHA puts on to raise money for music and art programs throughout the San Gabriel Valley. “I was so impressed with the organization for the work they do,” she said. “I didn’t know that these music programs were funded from this design home.” Besides the Music MobileTM, PSHA has two other music programs, Youth Concert and Instrumental Competition.The Moys have resided in San Marino for nearly twenty years. In their spare time, they like to travel, take golf lessons, ping pong lessons and just spend time with their children and grandchildren.The 2020 Showcase House of Design opens on April 26th and runs through May 17th.

It’s a figure much discussed within the consultation document published on Friday setting out the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG’s) plans to introduced a letting agent fees ban.If the DCLG’s plans are implemented as they stand following the consultation period, then neither landlords nor agents will be able to charge tenants any “fees, premium or charges to facilitate the granting, renewal or continuance of a tenancy”.“The Government also proposes to ban any letting fees charged to tenants by landlords and any other third parties to ensure that letting agent fees are not paid by tenants through other routes. Tenants should only be required to pay their rent and a refundable deposit,” the consultation says.Average feeWithin the document’s detail, the DCLG says the average fee taken by agents is between £200-300, based on the 2014-15 English Housing Survey, while the National Approved Letting Scheme (NALS) is reported to have indicated an average fee of £172 with a range of between £30 and £500.Campaigning group Generation Rent told DCLG that the average for a couple renting a home is £400 within range of between £40 and £780, while homelessness charity Shelter believes one in seven renters pay £500 or more in fees.But the DCLG conducted its own research into a letting agent fees ban among 50 randomly-chosen agents of different sizes including franchisees, independents and corporates across the country, based on information published on their website.“This exercise reinforced how difficult it is for tenants to both find and compare agent fees since it was not always simple to either find the fees on the agent’s website or to understand exactly what was included in them,” the consultation document says.Following its research, the DCLG discovered that the median set-up fee charged was £180 while reference checks were £75; tenancy agreement fees £185; guarantor checks £62.50; tenancy renewal fees £75; and tenancy amendment fees £100.The highest of these fees included a set-up fee of £420, reference checks costing £240, tenancy agreements at £300, guarantor checks at £378, a tenancy renewal fee of £150 and tenancy amendment cost of £432.“The findings above demonstrate that the fees charged to tenants vary considerably amongst agents, even though the services provided are broadly similar, and that in some instances the fees charged can be significant,” the consultation document says.letting agent fees ban DCLG Department of communities and local government April 10, 2017Nigel LewisOne commentSheila Manchester, The Negotiator The Negotiator 10th April 2017 at 9:08 amThe folk at DCLG must have very dark glasses on if they can’t see that ‘lost’ fees will inevitably be recouped in higher rents.

U.S. Global Malaria Coordinator Admiral Timothy Ziemer, who has overseen the reduction of worldwide malaria deaths by 40 percent over the last decade, will speak at the University of Georgia on April 14. Ziemer has been called one of the “most quietly successful” leaders in public health for his efforts leading the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), a government initiative to combat malaria worldwide led by the U.S. Agency for International Development and implemented with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. He will share the lessons he’s learned from this journey and his plans for the future from 4-5:30 p.m. on April 14 with his lecture “President’s Malaria Initiative: the U.S. Government’s Commitment to the Global Malaria Fight.” “Public health and agriculture are inextricable disciplines,” said Dean J. Scott Angle, of the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. “The fight against malaria is just one of the many crossroads. A healthy world begins with a sustainable environment and a nutritious food supply. Promoting agricultural practices that include effective pest management and controlling insect vectors that spread disease is a vital juncture at which we must all work together to promote worldwide health improvement.“ Ziemer’s lecture is free and open to the public. It will be held in Masters Hall at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education on UGA’s Athens Campus. The UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, the UGA College of Public Health and the GRU/UGA Medical Partnership is hosting the lecture. Since taking the helm of the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) in 2006, Ziemer has worked to align the efforts of aid groups working to end malaria. He has insisted on accountability for outreach funding and helped reduce the impact of a disease that sickens almost 200 million people annually and kills between 500,000 and 600,000 a year, according to the World Health Organization. PMI works in 19 countries in sub-Saharan Africa and in the Greater Mekong Subregion, which includes Cambodia, southern China, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam. The agency’s strategy coordinates medical care, mosquito net distribution and pest management strategies in the countries where they work. Before his appointment as U.S. global malaria coordinator, Rear Admiral Ziemer served in the United States Navy and later as executive director of World Relief, a humanitarian organization. Born in Iowa, Ziemer was raised by missionary parents in Vietnam. He joined the U.S. Navy after graduating from Wheaton College and became a pilot. He returned to Vietnam during the U.S. war there. During his naval career, Rear Admiral Ziemer commanded several squadrons, naval stations and an air wing supporting the first Gulf War. Subsequent assignments included serving as the senior fellow with the Navy’s Strategic Studies Program at the Naval War College and deputy director for operations in the National Military Operations Center on the Joint Command Staff. For more information about attending the event please call Candy Sears at 706-542-3924. This event is part of the CAES Spring Showcase, a celebration of agricultural and environmental sciences on UGA’s Athens Campus. Visit caes.uga.edu/students for more information.
