Community News L-R: Chick-a-Fil Breakfast entree, 7-Eleven slurpee and Blaze pizzaTuesday is Free Food Day at Blaze Pizza’s two restaurants in Pasadena, and at Chick-Fil-A’s Colorado Blvd. store.Blaze Pizza, the Pasadena-based fast casual chain, is celebrating LeBron James’ arrival into the LA Lakers Tuesday by giving out free pizzas at their locations in the Los Angeles area, including Pasadena’s two franchises.“Let’s celebrate the arrival of the King!” Blaze Pizza said in a website post last week announcing the LABron Free Pizza Party, available in 50 Los Angeles area locations between 2 and 5 p.m. Tuesday.Tuesday’s LABron Free Pizza Party will be one pizza per person, and does not include online, app, phone or delivery orders.Blaze Pizza’s Pasadena locations are at 667 E. Colorado Blvd. and at 635 N. Fair Oaks Avenue.Also on Tuesday, Chick-Fil-A – yes, the chicken restaurant – is giving away a free entrée to anyone who visits any of their 2,200-plus stores dressed as a cow!It’s Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-Fil-A Tuesday, and Pasadena’s outlet, at 1700 E. Colorado Blvd., is one of those 2,200-plus branches giving out free food! Chick-Fil-A says it’s been doing this for 14 years already.Cow Appreciation Day celebrates the time when Chick-Fil-A’s ad agency came up with the chain’s “Don’t Have a Cow! Eat Mor Chickin” campaign as an effort to pull away some of the primarily hamburger – read “beef” burger – crowd of fast-food patrons and get them to eat more chicken.The misspelling is intentional, and has been part of the campaign since the agency started putting up billboards showing cows painting the slogan “Eat Mor Chickin,” which later inspired other creative ideas that spilled out to social media.When the Eat Mor Chickin campaign started about 2004, there wasn’t much social media to speak of.To get free food on Tuesday, customers need only wear “something cow-like” when they visit any of Chick-Fil-A’s restaurants.But make sure to wear something light if you’re going to dress up as a cow, because Tuesday could be hot in Pasadena. The National Weather Service says highs could be near 96 in the City, and getting dressed up in thick costume to get free food could instead become a “cow-tastrophe!”For rules on “How to Cow,” visit www.chick-fil-a.com/Cow-Appreciation-Day.And if you’d want some free drinks to go with “blazing hot” Blaze Pizza’s and Chick-Fil-A’s offers, you’d have to wait till Wednesday, when 7-Eleven, the convenience store chain, celebrates its birthday.7-Eleven is giving away free Slurpees on July 11, including their new Cap’n Crunch Berries-flavored variety, for a limited time.No coupon or purchase is necessary. 7Rewards members also get other freebies beyond July 11.

When agents warned the government that its anti-landlord tax measures would lead to higher rents, they were dismissed as scaremongers.But Countrywide’s latest rental index shows that the predictions weren’t far off the mark in London, the South and Scotland.Rents in London were higher by 2.1% in July compared the last year driven by an 18% drop in properties available to rent, and the number of properties coming on to the market from landlords in the South has halved since 2015, helping drive the national average rental increase up from 1.1% to 2.2%.And the rate at which new rental properties are coming on to the market is slowing across some parts of the UK; down 18% in London, -6% in the East of England and -5% in the South.North vs SouthBut other parts of the UK are seeing a dramatic increase in the number of rental properties coming on to the market, including in Yorkshire & Humberside (+37%), Wales (+22%) and the North West (+21%) suggesting that landlords are shifting their investment focus away from London and the South.The research may be good news for first time buyers. In London the proportion of homes being bought by landlords is at its lowest for seven years down to 10.5% from 20.9% in 2015.But while the number of homes to rent remains the same or reduces in some parts of the UK as the landlord tax measures bite, tenant numbers in these areas have been rising, up 1% in London and 5% outside the capital.“The rush to beat higher stamp duty rates in April 2016 caused a spike in the number of homes to rent, but that has now worked its way through the market,” says Johnny Morris, Research Director at Countrywide (pictured, right).“The stock of homes to rent is now falling in the more expensive parts of the country because higher tax rates have dissuaded large numbers of landlords from buying. Ultimately this means fewer homes on the market and higher rents.“Across the Midlands and the North, higher rates of stamp duty are much less of a disincentive to investors. Here the number of homes on the market remains up on last year, buoyed by investors living in London and the South East choosing to buy in the Midlands and the North.” Johnny Morris rental index Countrywide August 14, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

RelatedPosts EPL: Son fires four past Southampton EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U EPL: Red Devils attack Palace Son Heung-min scored his first goals of the 2019/2020 campaign on Saturday as Tottenham Hotspur put their early season struggles behind them by thrashing Crystal Palace in the English Premier League. Crystal Palace, who boasted the meanest defence in the top-flight before the game, conceding twice in four matches, could not help losing heavily this time in a 4-0 defeat. Two strikes from Son and a goal apiece for Serge Aurier and Erik Lamela inside 45 minutes gave Spurs their first win since the opening day. Roy Hodgson’s Palace side were behind after nine minutes, when Son ran on to a long ball from Toby Alderweireld before shifting it on to his left foot in the area and driving into the bottom corner. The South Korean then turned provider in the 21st minute, playing the ball to Aurier who was overlapping on the right into the box. The former Paris St. Germain defender struck a low cross, only for it to deflect into the net off Palace defender Patrick van Aanholt. Aurier returned the favour barely two minutes later. A deep cross by the Ivorian found Son at the far post to volley in the third before Lamela got a fourth just before half-time. He fired home Harry Kane’s cross from the edge of the six-yard box. Spurs took their foot off the gas in the second half, presumably with one eye on their opening UEFA Champions League group game against Olympiakos Piraeus on Wednesday. But Crystal Palace barely registered any dangerous attacks to threaten their fellow Londoners. Reuters/NAN.Tags: Crystal PalaceErik LamelaSerge AurierSon Heung-minTottenham Hotspur
Press Association Graeme McDowell finally got the better of Nicolas Colsaerts in the Volvo World Match Play Championship, despite a remarkable escape from an unsavoury hazard by the defending champion. Colsaerts could be heard laughing as he pleaded with the referee not to make him drop the ball inside a bathroom on live television, but had to drop it twice as it rolled nearer the hole the first time. “I was laughing because I was going to look like a clown,” Colsaerts said. “I’m going to make ‘A Question of Sport’ and I’m sure it’s going to make the news, some Belgian dude dropping the ball in a toilet. It’s fun to be recognised for stupid stuff like that.” After escaping with his par, Colsaerts got back into the match with a birdie on the 13th – where McDowell was going to drop at least one shot – and by winning the 14th with a par. However, he missed a birdie putt from seven feet on the 16th to get back on level terms and then hit two clumsy pitches on the par-three 17th to allow McDowell to close out the win. McDowell will face Branden Grace in the last four after he beat England’s Chris Wood 2&1 in the quarter-finals, while the other semi-final sees another South African Thomas Aiken take on Thongchai Jaidee, two men who beat Ryder Cup star Ian Poulter in the group stages. Aiken beat Italy’s Francesco Molinari 3&2 while Jaidee defeated Scotland’s Scott Jamieson 4&3. Colsaerts beat McDowell in the final last year and also knocked the Northern Irishman out in the quarter-finals in 2011, but McDowell made it third time lucky with a 2&1 win in the quarter-finals at Thracian Cliffs. Three up after nine, McDowell seemed set to go further ahead when Colsaerts’ drive on the short par-four 10th finished inside a public toilet. But after taking a penalty drop – bringing new meaning to the phrase ‘nearest point of relief’ – Colsaerts pitched onto the green and holed from 15ft for par to halve the hole.
–local umpire says players’ safety priority By Clifton Ross LOCAL cricket umpire, Zaheer Mohammed, said he’s advocating for the new International Cricket Council’s (ICC) proposal to legalize ball-tampering in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak.The ICC recently proposed to make ball-tampering legal by means of allowing the application of substances such as wax or shoe polish. The move, if approved, will be done under the supervision of the umpires, resulting in the once illegal process of tampering with the ball now legal.Mohammed, a veteran journalist and one of Guyana’s fully qualified cricket umpire, told Guyana Chronicle, on Saturday, that he was in support of the move by the ICC should it come into full effect.“In the wake of Covid-19, it is something worth considering, especially in Test matches. Some pitches around the world offer little help to fast-bowlers; so not being able to shine the ball as they used to will make things difficult for them”. Mohammed opined.From an impartial perspective, Mohammed said that although the rule could be beneficial given the circumstances, it is important to create an atmosphere where it’s fair for both batsmen and bowlers.“I think the idea is good but at the same time, you do not want to create an unfair advantage for the bowlers so, in the end, balance must be there”.Regarding the faster bowlers, the veteran cricket Journalist further pointed out that the pacers, in particular, will be in the limelight should this new rule come into play.“The fast-bowlers do rely on movement early on in the innings, so it is something worth looking at; but overall I think the safety of the players is the real priority”, he ended.It will be left to be seen if this new proposed rule will help or hurt the flow of the game but, with health being the primary focus in every aspect, the ICC could likey break new ground as they seek to preserve the welfare of the players and the sport.
