Firefighters battle the Star Fire in July that burned 156 acres in Chino Hills and a $2.3 million home owned by a Chino dentist. The fire was caused by a bird that caught fire after it was electrocuted. The fire burned an area between Chino Hills Parkway and Chino Avenue on the north side of the city.  Chino Police Chief Comstock receives congratulatory handshakes after retiring in July. She worked for Chino Police for 29 years, nearly five years as chief.  Jack Filek (right), who lives on Pipeline Avenue, just northeast of the 60 Freeway, talks about Caltrans’ plans to elevate the Pipeline Avenue bridge over the 60 Freeway. Mr. Filek and other area residents gave their input during a May 15 meeting in Chino on Caltrans’ numerous projects for the 60 Freeway, known as the “60 Swarm.” The work, that includes elevating three freeway bridges in Chino and repaving the freeway from Euclid Avenue on the Chino/Ontario border to the 60/91/215 interchange in Riverside, began in the summer. Some parts of the project will be completed in early 2020, but total completion is not expected until summer 2021. In addition to those projects, the Central Avenue bridge over the freeway will be widen...

In a brief statement from Athletic Director Donnie Brooks released on Tuesday, April 23, Pamela Findlay

In a brief statement from Athletic Director Donnie Brooks released on Tuesday, April 23, Pamela Findlay announced her resignation from her position as Macalester College Women’s Basketball’s head coach. On the Macalester Athletics website, Findlay was quoted as saying: “Macalester is an incredible school with a very close-knit, supportive community. I’m honored to have had the opportunity to be a part of the athletic department. I’m thankful for the student athletes and assistant coaches for working so hard and creating a positive culture. The team is going to build on this past season and do amazing things in the future. I can’t wait to see all they accomplish.” This announcement came as a surprise, as Findlay was only in her first year at Macalester. The Scots finished the season 6-19 overall and 4-14 in the MIAC. The Mac Weekly will continue to follow this story as it develops and will be releasing a more complete story as soon as possible. Kudos for the great website you’ve set up at themacweekly.com. Your enthusiastic take on the subject is definitely contagious. Thanks again! Hi, i feel that i saw you visited my blog so i came to return the choose?.I’m trying to to find t...

Tom Cruise Wears Ray-Bans in ‘Top Gun.’ But These Are the Shades That Real Navy Pilots Prefer

Editor’s note: This tour of small businesses across the country highlights the imagination, diversity, and resilience of American enterprise. Damian Lewis rocks them in Billions. Liev Schreiber sports a pair in Ray Donovan. Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell use them to get their swagger on in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.  Tom Cruise also amps up his cool quotient with Randolph Engineering aviator sunglasses in the movies American Made and Oblivion. And in Top Gun…? “Unfortunately, Ray-Ban is the one that had those,” says Peter Waszkiewicz, president and CEO of the second-generation family business. “But we have been in more movies than I can begin to tell you. Now everybody in Hollywood knows Randolph.” Cruise is also a Randolph Engineering fan in private life. But more important to the company’s story have been real-life versions of his Top Gun Navy pilot character–as well as Air Force and Army pilots–who for decades have worn frames engineered by Randolph for performance in extreme conditions. The only manufacturer of metal eyewear still operating in the United States, the company is based in a brick factory in...

As an Adventure Racing World Champion, I’m often asked what’s the single-biggest difference between great teams

As an Adventure Racing World Champion, I’m often asked what’s the single-biggest difference between great teams and not-so-great teams? The simple answer is attitude. Winning teams always look for solutions while losing teams look for someone to blame. I was reminded of this when I was completing the first Florida Keys adventure for my nonprofit, Project Athena (where survivors and fundraisers kayak and cycle for 120 miles from Key Largo to Key West). On the first day of cycling, we experienced an incident that showed how teams can be solution-focused. One of our survivors that year was an above-the-knee amputee. Due to her post-op inflammation receding, her prosthetic leg kept falling off. The first time it happened, her prosthetic leg stayed attached to the bike pedal as she made a slow crash into the bike lane. What left us cringing in horror left her laughing and determined to continue. Our team immediately went into action to find solutions so she could complete the ride. One person found a belt on the side of the road; another found an old bungee cord in the back of a truck. Together we used this detritus to rig a way to keep the prosthetic leg attached, and she completed ...

52 Ways to Detox Your Home and Live Healthier This Year

A dirty abode isn’t just embarrassing—it can make you sick. Consider this your starter kit to a healthier house and a healthier you. We hate to break it to you, but your home is filthy. Not just dust-on-the-bookshelves, dishes-in-the-sink, dog-fur-on-everything filthy, either. We mean dirty—as in, there’s bacteria everywhere. Cold and flu viruses can live on surfaces for up to 48 hours, and coliform (the bacteria family that includes salmonella and E. coli) is present in around 80 percent of households. Formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, is released by materials commonly found in flooring and furniture, and better insulation means it’s trapped inside for longer. It’s no wonder, then, that the concentration of pollutants inside our homes has often been found to be two to five times higher than it is outside. And even if recreation-happy Coloradans spend slightly more time outdoors than most Americans, who pass 90 percent of their lives indoors, we still breathe in lots of hours’ worth of toxic chemicals and pollutants, especially this time of year. “The various classes [of chemicals] we’re exposed to every day, from the house-cleaning products we are using to plastics to spr...

There’s a lot of confusion surrounding any Chinese manufacturing, and where there’s confusion, there’s also misconceptions.

There’s a lot of confusion surrounding any Chinese manufacturing, and where there’s confusion, there’s also misconceptions. To clear up some of this, we visited Chervon, a very popular international power tool manufacturing company with manufacturing in Nanjing, China and Stuttgart, Germany and sales and marketing offices all over the US, Europe, Australia, Germany and China. We were afforded the opportunity to spend a couple days seeing their manufacturing facilities in Nanjing, China where we got a clearer picture of not only their capabilities, but Chervon’s particular style of running its international operations. We came back with a little bit more than just a history of Chervon manufacturing, we got a wider view of overseas OEM and ODM manufacturing as a whole, and a much more personal look at a company that’s trying to do it right—both in terms of process and also the environment. That’s a lot to swallow, and so we’ve got more than one article on the company and its processes. This article in particular will serve as an introduction of sorts to the company and what we’ve come to understand about this China-based international power tool manufacturer.

Long battery life. Sharp 1080p video. Face recognition. Local and cloud storage. Supports Alexa voice commands.

Long battery life. Sharp 1080p video. Face recognition. Local and cloud storage. Supports Alexa voice commands. Expensive. Requires hub. Doesn’t support IFTTT or Google Assistant voice commands (yet). Motion recordings begin too late. Cannot add faces to the database on the fly. Finicky setup procedure. The EufyCam is a pricey outdoor smart security camera that delivers crisp 1080p video and offers face recognition, local storage, and a long battery life, but some of its other features are not quite ready for prime time. Battery-powered outdoor security cameras are relatively easy to install because they are wireless and don’t require a nearby GFCI outlet for power, but you still have to change or recharge their batteries several times a year. Not so with the EufyCam ($499.99), a weatherproof outdoor security camera equipped with a battery that’s rated to last up to a full year between charges. The EufyCam delivers sharp 1080p video and offers intelligent motion alerts, face recognition, and local storage, but its motion recording performance came up short in testing and it doesn’t work with as many third-party devices as the similarly priced Arlo Pro 2. ...
