Real Estate, Recreation and Parksin LA’s Highland Park Neighborhood


Samantha Turkle

Anyone who has been paying attention to real estate trends in Northeast Los Angeles – realtors, homebuyers and home sellers – can agree on one thing: Highland Park real estate is in great demand. Homes in Highland Park have been going up in value for several years and there seems to be no end in sight.

Homebuyers priced out of Silver Lake and Eagle Rock – many of them families – are drawn to Highland Park because of the many and varied styles of homes that dot the hilly, artistic streets. Many are attracted to the family-friendly feel of Highland Park and the many cultural and recreational resources there.

In the last several years, Highland Park has transformed due to the successful, young people who have gentrified and modernized this Bohemian community. Along with new shops, cafes, apartment buildings and refurnished homes, Highland Park has developed and refurbished a series of parks that have strengthened the community.

Sycamore Grove Park

4702 N Figueroa St.

Sycamore Grove Park was established in 1905 when the city of Los Angeles purchased the land and transformed it into a recreational area with tended grass, picnic tables and a bandshell for concerts. This 15-acre park is located along the bank of the Arroyo Seco River. This rich environment provides water and life to the grove of sycamore trees that thrive throughout the park. Today, the park now includes a playground for children and tennis courts. There is also an area of outdoor gym equipment where guests can work out for free below the grand trees.

York Park

4956 York Blvd.

York Park is a result of gentrification and was built on the lot of an old, abandoned gas station. This unorthodox park focuses less on the luxury of green grass and more on the adventures of being a child. This 1/3-acre lot has $3 million dollars invested in its small amphitheater, shock absorbent ground andreal musical equipment. The park was designed by residentsaged 11 and up from the neighborhood that allcontributed various ideas for the park including the above mentioned plus a community library, a mini-rock wall, a giant snake slide and water misters for hot summer days.

Tierra de la Culebra

240 S. Ave. 57

Tierra de la Culebra or Land of the Snake is a park created by the artist Tricia Ward in response to the civil uprisings of LA in 1992. It all began when Ward developed a community arts workshop for local youth. ARTSCorp LA teamed up with Ward to recruit volunteers and find a safe space where youth had the freedom to explore all styles and niches of artistic expression. During the first session the group built a 500-foot serpent sculpture from stone rubble that connects all sections of the park. Today, the park is continually used for workshops in music, art and Hispanic culture. This two-acre park also contains mural panels, an urban forest, gardens, a pond and sculptural landscapes.

York Boulevard Parklet

5040 York Blvd.

The York Boulevard Parklet is a micro-park that was built over old parking spots to give pedestrians a public gathering space to enjoy their community. This Parklet was developed by the city and community members in response to the gentrification of Highland Park. The unique parklet features comfortable seating and custom mural tile work by local artist, Cathi Milligan.

Highland Recreational Center Park

6150 Piedmont Ave.

The Highland Recreational Center Park has manyfeatures including: an indoor gymnasium, a pool, an outdoor lit up basketball court, a dining room, air hockey tables, a baseball and t-ball diamond, ping pong tables and a childrens play area. This center was built with the intent of providing residents with a safe, affordable facility where residents of all ages may enjoy activities to be healthy and build a sense of community.

Milagro Allegro Community Garden

115 Ave. 56

This successful community project contains 10,000 square feet of land where residents can hold workshops and grow flowers, fruits and vegetables. This opportunity allows residents to explore urban farming, art and education while pursuing a healthy diet and a new hobby.

Residents in Highland Park are fortunate to have so much open space available for the public, such as the parks mentioned above. Not all areas of Los Angeles are so fortunate.

Older areas being gentrified in North East Los Angeles, offering the wide range of styles of homes with an equally wide range of prices, should be sure to consult an experienced Highland Park realtor for insight and advice.

Pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly and Company is currently engaged in a war of words with John Mack, editor of the monthly newsletter Pharma Marketing News. Mack and Eli Lilly are debating the origin of the Cialis Blog, a long-running Web site containing information about the popular anti-impotence medication Cialis. The Web site features information about Cialis’ clinical trials and commentary from Lilly ICOS executives.

Mack has suggested that Eli Lilly and Company sponsors the Cialis Blog. However, Lilly ICOS has asserted that it has nothing to do with the Web site.

Mack disputed Eli Lilly’s version of events calling the Cialis Blog “too far-fetched to be believed” and an example of Lilly’s “incredible incompetence.” Another blog, Envisioning 2.0, notes that the “Cialis blog is not endorsed by the powers that be at Lilly ICOS, according to Lilly spokesperson Kindra Strupp.”

Pharmaceutical Executive first mentioned the Cialis blog in an October 2004 article about pharmaceutical blogging. The author of the story assigned responsibility for the blog to Lilly ICOS without attribution.

Other bloggers have posted comments on Envisioning 2.0 and Mack’s Pharma Marketing Blog suggesting that the Cialis Web site may be unofficial. They cite evidence from a WHOIS search indicating that Mircea Piturca of Romania apparently registered the blog.

Mack and bloggers commenting on the debate have all urged Eli Lilly to take action against the site. They all believe it is in the company’s best interest to have the site shuttered.

At the Pavilion of Taiwan Automotive Research Consortium during the AutoTronics Taipei 2008, in Taipei Time, the Next Consortium of Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) unveiled a brand-new environmental-concept vehicle named “RoboScooter”. It was jointly designed by the Creativity Lab of ITRI, SYM Motors, and the Media Lab of Massachusetts Institute of Technology. This announcement was approved by industrial, governmental, and academical executives, but not just in Taiwan.

The ability for R&D to manufacture the electronic vehicles and bicycles was concerning to several automobile-related industries. There was concern not only from several trade shows, but also international competitions related to the design after winning several prizes back in Taiwan to establish the industrial position and brand image of “Made in Taiwan”. Since several industries like automobile are transformed to high-value industries, “creativity” progressively became a key element before unveiling any new products.

As of this sector, Wen-jean Hsueh (ITRI Creativity Lab General Director) hoped companies could do proper transformations on its R&D nature from “Made in Taiwan” to “Created in Taiwan” for best practice. This not only echoed “OBM” theory discussed at 2007 Taiwan Brands’ Trend Forum but also blended with a key element of production – “creativity”.

On the other side of SYM Motors, to solve the transportation problem for TWTC Nangang, SYM Motors Taiwan imported manufacturing technology from Kinglong Bus Co., Ltd. to manufacture several 4th-cycle low floor buses and sell them to Chung-hsing Bus Co., Ltd. and Kwang-huang Bus Co., Ltd. In this launch, the SYM Motors Taiwan hope this vehicle is energy-efficiency, easily-parked, and has creative functions which can improve the transportation habits of individuals.

Are you a business owner representing a product or service?

What’s your point of differentiation?

What separates you from your competitors?

Is it quality? .Is it the price?….. Is it the packaging?…. Is it placement or promotion?

The bottom line is, are you selling? If not, why not? They say nothing happens unless you advertise. No advertising = no sales. But many business people are leery of paid advertising because it just doesn’t seem to return the investment. There are many reasons for this–throwing out spotty advertisements, whether online or offline doesn’t work well most often and who can afford to advertise en masse regularly? People are desensitized by hyper advertising on TV, radio, Internet, junk mail, magazines, etc.

Many Websites, offering advertising solutions, will promise the world, wittingly hiding their true agenda. Internet advertising veterans are familiar with which methods work and which are offered for ulterior motives. However, this comes from experience and, in many cases, moderate expense. Advertising on the internet is still evolving. New ideas are born, and old ones die, almost daily. Because of this, novel advertisers should familiarize themselves with forms of advertising offered before pursuing the solution.

Advertisers are very creative little sneaks who try all kinds of angles to fool you into not realizing you are being advertised as they cloak advertisements into “infomercials” and now they cloak infomercials into looking like some interview. Buzz words like “info-ads” which are designed to highlight the problems you didn’t know you had and set forth-easy solutions to complicated problems if you only “buy now”.

The answer may lie in advertising. Advertising is about turning heads, even if the necks are sore (in good humour). But turning necks isnt easy business as there are a lot of things that glue your consumers focus. At LogicFlick, we believe the key lies in understanding people, brands and being creative enough to make people stand up and take notice.

We get close and personal with your brand and customer. We believe in diving into their souls. We are affable and take up the role of an irreplaceable confidante.

The result is a precise know-how of your brand and an understanding of your customers that is unrivalled. As Brand Consultants for digital marketing services, we understand the importance of building enduring brands and therefore invest our total energy in creating Brands that can weather the roughest storms of the harsh market environments.

Our objective understanding and creative solutions, that are alter-egos to the data, help us deliver solutions that work out in the long term.

Using the right media vertical is critical. If you arent doing that, its quite like looking for Zen-like calm in a bustling railway station. At The LogicFlick, we study each vertical, its effectiveness in reaching the right targeted customers and communicating the message effectively. Our dutifully gathered data helps us in achieving complete success in providing digital marketing services.

An ad developed by us represents and engulfs the minds of our creative and media teams. And influence every kind of communication we conjure up and publish/print/exhibit to meet every kind of marketing need of every kind of client public, government, social, spiritual, educational

Whether he is an actual athlete or not, a man can easily come down with that all-too-familiar curse known as jock itch. Unless hes one of those rare guys who actually enjoys having an itchy male organ, a man is going to want to avoid this situation if at all possible. Certainly taking basic steps to maintain adequate manhood health can be a big help, but there are other tips that can also come in handy.

A fungus among us

Most men think of jock itch as just that rash that makes their manhood itch like crazy and that inevitably leads to them being caught scratching their equipment just as that hot woman they wanted to impress decides to look their way. Not everyone is aware of just what jock itch is.

Known medically as tinea cruris, jock itch is a form of ringworm a fact that leads many men to shudder and think they have some nasty invasive worm roaming around their midsection. Actually, ringworm is not a worm at all: its a fungus. Like other fungi, jock itch is really fond of hot, moist areas, like the midsection.


Jock itch presents as a red, flat rash, which may be somewhat clear in the center and redder around the borders. The border may also be raised somewhat higher than the rest of the infection.

As the name implies, jock itch can be intensely itchy. Its also very contagious, which accounts for the fact that an estimated 20% of the population gets jock itch at some time in their lives.


Fortunately, jock itch is not spread through the air; unfortunately, it is spread through skin on skin contact, which means that if its present on the manhood (or the surrounding area), it can put a real crimp in a mans love life. It also means that if a mans partner has it, he needs to take precautions to keep it from spreading. Abstinence is the best way to prevent spreading, but in some instances use of a rubber protection can be effective. (This does not apply to areas of the body not covered by the protection, of course.)

But jock itch can also spread through contact with infected items, not just by direct skin-on-skin contact. So, for example, if a man with jock itch dries off his manhood in the locker room and then his buddy borrows his towel and dries off, the pal may be coming down with an itchy male organ of his own soon. The same goes for sharing affected clothing or bedsheets.

So guys interested in preventing jock itch should do the following:

Air out the member. Warmth and moisture breed fungi, so spending some time letting the member and sacks air out on a regular basis is a good idea. This is one reason many men prefer to sleep bare.

Change clothing often. If a man sweats a lot, he should change trousers and underwear during the course of the day in order to keep moisture from accumulating. He also should definitely change out of clothes he has been exercising in.

Shower. Showering regularly is a good idea, and definitely after a workout or other form of heavy physical activity. Its also important to dry the area completely with a clean, dry towel.

Go for boxers. Tight briefs tend to create a warmer midsection situation and increase the likelihood of sweat. Loose-fitting boxers are often a better choice.

It also pays to keep the manhood in excellent health, which can decrease the chances of an itchy male organ and help the member be better prepared for jock itch if it occurs. Regular use of a first rate manhood health crme (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) is best. A crme with both Shea butter and vitamin E (two excellent hydrators) keeps skin moist and supple. If the crme also includes alpha lipoic acid, it helps the male organ fight free radicals and limit oxidative stress, which boosts the overall level of manhood health and keeps the organ looking healthy and attractive.

On Tuesday many internet routers, used to find the pathways to different parts of the web, reached their memory limit of 512,000 entries in the tables they use to store the routes, causing problems for many users.

A router is used to direct a user towards the area of the internet where they will find the content they are looking for, e.g. a web page. The recent problem was caused by the arbitrary memory limit built into the design of many aging routers. A limit was needed to prevent the cost of hardware from becoming prohibitively expensive in the days when physical data storage was still comparatively expensive. This small amount of memory in turn limits the number of directions which can be stored on a single router leading to different parts of the internet. When this limit was reached, it caused outages of services among Internet Service Providers. Many routers, including older ones provided by Cisco Systems Inc., are limited to storing a total of 512,000 routes or paths.

This limit was reached on Tuesday, reported to have been triggered by Verizon publishing another 15,000 paths. Those affected included eBay, LastPass, and clients of the web hosting company Liquid Web, who lost much of their services until Verizon withdrew some of these new paths. Problems nevertheless continued throughout the day, even after the withdrawal.

A longer term fix is possible, but it would require manually replacing old routers with newer, more capable ones. It is hard to tell what issues would temporarily cascade though the internet by taking down routers from part of the internet for maintenance. Many experts have warned that problems could continue until these difficult fixes have been implemented, although the recent switch to a newer form of IP Addresses, IPv6, will temporarily help the issue. Wired News reported that Andre Toonk, a network engineer, had stated that the number of network outages on the internet, typically around 1,500, yesterday peaked at 2,587, enough to become clearly noticeable.

Legislation pending in the French Parliament would require that music purchased online for use on digital music players be compatible across all players. It has become popularly known in France as the “iPod bill,” after the popular music player made by Apple Computer, and could pit France against Apple and other distributors of online music.

The National Assembly (lower house) and Senate (upper house) have passed two separate versions of the legislation. Both would reduce the penalties for piracy, require software companies to provide details on how their programs work, and create an agency that would have jurisdiction over digital copyright issues, including how often music can be legally copied by a customer for personal use and ensuring compatibility across devices.

Unlike the Assembly version, the Senate version does not contain provisions that would require manufacturers such as Apple and Sony to open all music sold on their platforms to work on players other than their own. Currently, the stores for Apple and Sony sell music only for use on their own players. Critics of the changes say that the Senate’s changes would defeat the purpose of the bill.

The two versions must now be reconciled in conference committee, a process that could take months.

Speaking in support of the bill, Assembly member Christian Paul said, “We oppose the idea that the seller of a song or any kind of work can impose on the consumer the way to read it, forever, and especially in the consumer’s home. Can we allow a couple of vendors to establish monopolies tightly controlling their clients and excluding competition?”

Christian Vanneste, the National Assembly sponsor of the iPod bill, said, “In France, there are two distinct mentalities. On one side is the backwards left, which is anti-American, and on the other is the right, which thinks that the U.S.A. shouldn’t be the only one with good ideas, and who want to compete with them.”

After the National Assembly’s vote in March, Apple denounced the measure as “state-sponsored piracy.” They refused to comment on the legislation after the Senate’s vote on May 10.

Francisco Mingorance, European policy director for the Business Software Alliance, said that the Assembly’s proposal is “about ripping off technology from those who developed it and putting it in the public domain.” The Business Software Alliance represents Apple, Dell, Microsoft Corp., Hewlett-Packard Co. and other major computer hardware and software companies.
