One of Los Angeles’ most critically and popularly acclaimed restaurants selects apartment and retail property for only its third location Lowe and J.P. Morgan Asset Management announced today that Father’s Office, a Los Angeles institution, will open at The Garey Bldg., a 320-unit apartment community in the burgeoning Arts District in downtown Los Angeles. The restaurant will have a prominent, 5,100-square-foot corner location with indoor and outdoor dining on The Garey’s pedestrian paseo, a wide tree-lined public space that spans a city block between 1st and 2nd Streets. “Father’s Office has broad appeal with its casual atmosphere and American cuisine featuring its renowned office burger that regularly makes LA’s ‘best of’ lists. It’s an ideal fit for The Garey Bldg.’s ground floor restaurant and retail array that serves both our residents and the neighboring community,” said Tom Wulf, senior vice president, Lowe. According to Chef Sang Yoon, this expansion of his Father's Office concept to downtown Los Angeles is scheduled to open in fall 2017. Yoon debuted Father's Office in 2000 when he took over the local dive bar in Santa Monica of the same name, creating the iconic "Office Burger" and venerable craft beer program, and trailblazed the gastropub movement across the US in the nearly two decades since. Father's Office Culver City opened in 2008 to continued critical and popular acclaim at the historic Helm's Bakery complex followed by an additional two restaurants, Lukshon (Culver City) and Two Birds One Stone (Napa Valley). The Garey Bldg., located at 905 E. 2nd Street, is set on 2.9 acres east of Alameda Street between 1st and 2nd Streets. The property, developed by Lowe and institutional investors advised by J.P. Morgan Asset Management and opened in July 2016, features two five-story buildings flanking a 50-foot-wide pedestrian paseo that features 15,800 square feet of commercial space that will offer a variety of restaurants, cafes and retail establishments. The Garey Bldg. brings bright, modern residences ranging from studios to two-bedrooms with ground floor live-work units steps from public transportation with the Metro Gold Line station and new regional connector station currently under construction at 1st and Alameda. The Garey Bldg. was just awarded LEED Certification for its sustainable and environmentally sensitive development program. Residences at The Garey Bldg. all feature large, operable windows and most offer either balconies or patios to take advantage of Southern California’s temperate climate that invites indoor/outdoor living. Units feature nine-foot ceilings, open floor plans with well-designed kitchens outfitted with stainless steel appliances including a gas stove, washers and dryers, spacious bathrooms and storage with many units offering walk-in closets. All units feature a contemporary color palette with sleek, modern cabinetry, quartz countertops, wood-style flooring and fiber communication systems. Abundant communal spaces at The Garey Bldg. offer a variety of options for indoor and outdoor gathering, entertainment, collaborative work areas and relaxation – all with available WiFi. “The combination of modern design, common area amenities and central location make The Garey Bldg. a popular residential option in the Arts District. It is 78 percent occupied, a strong performance for a new apartment property that has outpaced our projections,” noted Wulf. The Garey Bldg. is a joint venture between Lowe Enterprises, Megatoys, which has owned the property for more than 20 years, and institutional investors advised by J.P. Morgan Asset Management. Cushman and Wakefield, led by Matthew Fainchtein and Carter Magnin, are the commercial leasing brokers for The Garey Bldg.

ATS 2017, WASHINGTON, DC--High levels of air pollution over time may get in the way of a good night's sleep, according to new research presented at the ATS 2017 International Conference. "Prior studies have shown that air pollution impacts heart health and affects breathing and lung function, but less is known about whether air pollution affects sleep," said lead author Martha E. Billings, MD, MSc, assistant professor of medicine at the University of Washington. "We thought an effect was likely given that air pollution causes upper airway irritation, swelling and congestion, and may also affect the central nervous system and brain areas that control breathing patterns and sleep." The researchers analyzed data from 1,863 participants (average age 68) in the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) who also enrolled in both MESA's Sleep and Air Pollution studies. The researchers looked at two of the most common air pollutants: NO2 (traffic-related pollutant gas) and PM2.5, or fine-particle pollution. Using air pollution measurements gathered from hundreds of MESA Air and Environmental Protection Agency monitoring sites in six U.S. cities, plus local environment features and sophisticated statistical tools, the research team was able to estimate air pollution exposures at each participant's home at two time points: one year and five years. Wrist actigraphy, which measures small movements, provided detailed estimates of sleep and wake patterns over seven consecutive days. This was used to calculate "sleep efficiency"--a measure of the percentage of time in bed spent asleep vs. awake. Researchers found that the sleep efficiency of the lowest 25 percent of participants was 88 percent or less. The research team studied if pollution exposures differed among those in this low sleep efficiency group. The population was divided into "fourths" according to levels of pollution. The quarter of those who experienced the highest levels of pollution was compared to the quarter with the lowest levels. The group with the highest levels of NO2 over five years had an almost 60 percent increased likelihood of having low sleep efficiency compared to those with the lowest NO2 levels. The group with the highest exposures to small particulates (PM2.5) had a nearly 50 percent increased likelihood of having low sleep efficiency. The authors adjusted for a range of factors, including age, body mass, obstructive sleep apnea, race/ethnicity, income and smoking status. They also adjusted for neighborhood socioeconomic status. The researchers were particularly interested in chronic exposure to air pollution and what that long-term exposure might mean for sleep health. "There may be acute sleep effects to short-term exposure to high pollution levels as well, but we lacked the data to study that link," Dr. Billings said, noting that the parent MESA study is investigating the chronic effects of air pollution on cardiovascular health. "These new findings indicate the possibility that commonly experienced levels of air pollution not only affect heart and lung disease, but also sleep quality. Improving air quality may be one way to enhance sleep health and perhaps reduce health disparities," Dr. Billings said. Future studies, she added, need to explore the association between other air pollutants and sleep, the mechanisms by which these pollutants may disrupt sleep patterns and whether traffic noise is the driving factor contributing to poor sleep quality.

Washington Convention Center Room 152A-B (Middle Bldg., Street Level) Relationship of Air Pollution to Sleep Disruption: The Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) Sleep and MESA-Air Studies Authors: M.E.

Although air pollution also may influence sleep quality through alterations in inflammatory or autonomic nervous system pathways, the relationship between air pollution and sleep has not been well studied. We evaluated the relationship between participant-level estimates of long-term ambient-derived traffic-related air pollution exposure with objective sleep fragmentation. We analyzed data from a subpopulation of the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) who participated in both MESA Sleep and AIR studies. Exposure to traffic related air pollutants (oxides of nitrogen) were estimated at participants' homes using spatio-temporal models based on cohort-specific monitoring averaged for one and five years prior to sleep assessment. Objective sleep fragmentation was evaluated with wrist actigraphy recorded over seven 24 hour periods. We used multivariate logistic regression models to evaluate for an association of traffic related air pollution with low sleep efficiency ( 60 mins). We adjusted for socio-demographics, sleep apnea (AHI>15), short sleep duration ( MESA participants (n=1863) were an average age 68 (+/- 9) years, 46% male, 36% white, 24% Hispanic, 29% black and 12% Asian. A quarter of the sample had 60 mins. The highest quartile NO2 exposure level (> 23.7 ppb) over 5 years compared to the lowest ( 60min WASO. Higher levels of traffic-related air pollution are associated with greater odds of objectively measured sleep disruption after adjusting for individual and residential socio-demographics. Further research is needed to identify the mechanisms and whether associations are attributable to oxides of nitrogen, traffic noise, other pollutants or environmental exposures that co-vary with traffic.

“A Night In Old San Antonio®” (NIOSA®) is a four-night festival in the heart of downtown San Antonio that celebrates the city’s diverse cultural legacy for more than 80,000 revelers annually. Sponsored by and benefiting the San Antonio Conservation Society, the 69th presentation of NIOSA will be held April 25-28, 2017, during the city’s Fiesta San Antonio® celebration. Through the magic of more than 250 food, drink and atmosphere booths, 12 live musical acts, children’s games, decorations, costumed volunteers and souvenirs, NIOSA brings the city’s heritage alive in its 15 areas. Check NIOSA’s website and mobile website for a complete list of all food, entertainment and drinks, by area. A map of these 15 areas can be found on the NIOSA website at http://www.niosa.org/EventMap.aspx NIOSA is sponsored solely by the San Antonio Conservation Society. Founded in 1924, the San Antonio Conservation Society is one of the oldest and most active community preservation groups in the United States. Beginning with efforts to prevent historic structures from being razed and to preserve such unique sites as the city’s Spanish Colonial missions, the society has been responsible for saving most of the historic attractions that now make San Antonio one of the top tourist destinations in Texas. The Society was integral in the Missions’ nomination as an UNESCO World Heritage Site, initiating the nomination process in 2006 and continuing to support the nomination until they were awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 2015. NIOSA chairman Patti Zaiontz, reelected by the Conservation Society in June 2016 as its Fourth Vice President/NIOSA Chairman, volunteers her time all year to plan and coordinate the event, and is assisted by four NIOSA vice chairmen and treasurer—also all volunteers. They oversee the 13,000 volunteers who contribute more than 150,000 volunteer hours to make NIOSA happen. Zaiontz estimates the costs to produce NIOSA are reduced by more than $3 million due to volunteer services, which in turn helps the Society continue their preservation work in our community. The NIOSA Committee is able to present the San Antonio Conservation Society with an average of more than $1.2 million annually in NIOSA profits to continue funding the Society’s mission for preservation of historic properties, places, customs and educational programs. NIOSA’s community impact totals an additional $1.3 million of payments of $514,000+ to the City in rental, fees, permits and taxes, and over $800,000 paid to local suppliers and entertainers for goods and services. PROCEEDS: NIOSA is the top fundraiser for historic preservation in the nation and truly lives up to its motto as a “Celebration for Preservation.” In the past ten years alone, more than $12 million has been netted at NIOSA to fund the Society’s mission to “preserve historic buildings, objects, places and customs relating to the history of Texas and all that is admirably distinctive to the state.” NIOSA proceeds support restoration and preservation of historic properties and parks throughout the city and neighboring counties, as well as education and advocacy programs and projects such as the Heritage Education tours, seminars, community tours, scholarships, resource library and house museums. Arneson Theatre Entertainment is the focal point of the historic Arneson River Theatre, a venue for musical shows year-round on the San Antonio River Walk. The open-air theater was built as a Works Progress Administration project during the 1930s. Grab a bite to eat, have a seat on the grass covered steps of the theatre and sing along to the great tunes of The Groove Doctors, who entertain NIOSA-goers and the river barge riders as they sail by. Enjoy Flaming Cheetos (new this year—a Cheetos/chamoy/diced pickles concoction); Banana Smoothies, Sweet Fried Apples, Fried Jalapeños and Broadway Chicken (fried chicken on a stick). Chinatown The oriental mystique begins with traditional Chinese cuisine in Chinatown. Crowd pleasers are Mandarin Mimosas, Lemon Chicken, Wontons and Egg Rolls. Crispy Shrimp Wraps and Fortune Cookies are also in great demand among the red-lacquered facades. Visitors won’t want to miss the Yak-I-Tori chicken k-bob. ATM machine, restrooms and a First Aid station are located just outside of the Bolivar Café (north side). Clown Alley It wouldn’t be Clown Alley without clowns! Here, family fun is a favorite in this area completely dedicated to children's entertainment. Young and old alike will enjoy games like Bowling on the Green, Softball Pitch, Fiesta Feat Ball, Lollipop Loop, Loop-the-Hoop, Wiffle Waffle, Putting Around and Add-Up Darts. Children (of all ages) can have their face painted in the Face Painting booth to put them in a festive mood. The Karaoke booth gives revelers the opportunity to sing along to their favorite melodies. This area features all our childhood food favorites such as Hamburgers/Cheeseburgers, Corn Dogs, Frito Pie, Curly Q Fries, Shaved Ice, Cotton Candy, Kiddie’s Kernels, Dutch Chocolate Freeze with hardening chocolate, and Funnel Fries (a stack of funnel cake fries--new this year). An ATM machine and First Aid station are located on the Gresser House porch on S. Presa (across from karaoke booth).

While strolling down the streets of French Quarter, guest can enjoy a glass of wine or champagne as they listen to the Dirty River Dixie Band (new this year) and view the 15-foot Eiffel Tower. An ATM is located on the Nueva St. side right beyond the entrance gate on Alamo St. Froggy Bottom (added in 2004) Many of the city’s early African-American settlers migrated to San Antonio from the Froggy Bottom region of Louisiana in the mid-to-late 1800s. The Froggy Bottom name comes from a popular, local social club on the near East Side of downtown in the early part of the 20th century. This NIOSA area pays tribute to the cultural contributions of African-Americans, celebrating their Southern hospitality and home cooking. A variety of southern foods are offered, including NIOSA’s most popular dish: Mr. Chicken (skewered fried chicken topped with a jalapeño). Frog Legs (moved from International Walkway) and Mama’s Sweets (pralines) can also be found here. In addition to the comfort food found in this area, visitors can dance to the rhythm and blues performed by Celsius. Frontier Town (started 1966) An early Texas settlement, including an official U.S. Postal sub-station which offers an official NIOSA cancellation stamp, is re-created in one of the largest areas of NIOSA. A windmill marks the center, where there’s plenty of room for boot-scootin’ and grazing. Horseshoe Sausage (exclusive NIOSA recipe—750 pounds consumed annually), Texas Bird Legs, Cowboy Klopse (a deep-fried meatball in jalapeño batter), Sopapillas, Steer-on-a-Stick, Shypoke Eggs, City Slickers (seasoned cucumbers) and Ranch Steaks keep the appetites of native Texans and other visitors satisfied. There are plenty of Wrangler Margaritas, cold suds and non-alcoholic Mangonada (new this year) in this area. A First Aid station and ATM are located in Frontier Town. Craft Beer Saloon (new this year) will sell craft beers from local breweries. Mario Flores & The Soda Creek Band will perform in Frontier Town and guests can pose for photographs in the old-timey Photo Bazaar. Haymarket (added in 1981) During the Spanish Colonial period, San Antonians used to gather near San Fernando Cathedral to sell produce and livestock. This area, known as the Haymarket, inspired the NIOSA version. Facades and colorful banners resembling those from the farmers’ markets of old adorn the NIOSA market. Returning for her second appearance, NIOSA goers will again enjoy music from Patsy Torres Band. One of NIOSA’s most famous and beloved foods bears the name of the woman who prepared it so long ago. Maria’s Tortillas (a hand-patted, grilled corn tortilla, buttered and filled with cheddar cheese and salsa) is named for Maria Luisa Ochoa, housekeeper to Ethel Harris, Conservation Society president from 1951-53. Ochoa was enlisted by Harris to make tortillas for the event. Introduced in the early 1950s, the booth today sells nearly 7,000 concoctions each year. Other popular Haymarket dishes include Gorditas/Chili Queens, Puffy Tacos, sizzling Beef Fajitas, Flautas (new queso for dipping), Sangria and Wine Margaritas. International Walkway (added in 1972) International Walkway showcases different ethnic groups that developed San Antonio’s unique heritage. Italy, Greece and Belgium inspire the foods offered through the area. A NIOSA food favorite has moved to this area: Bongo-k-Bobs (beef shish-k-bobs, nearly 10,000 sticks, named after Bongo Joe, a local music legend). Fried Mushrooms lead the list of other favorites, followed by Baklava, Belgian Waffles, Pizza, Grecian Delight Gyro, Fried Ravioli and Baja Fish Tacos. Smirnoff Preparadas (Watermelon Mimosa malt beverage with fresh fruit, chamoy and chili lime powder) and Jamaican Jerk Chicken Wings (new this year) are sold here. The NIOSA Crafters sell their arts and crafts, discount advance NIOSA tickets (beginning March 1), past NIOSA posters, 2017 NIOSA medal and merchandise in the “NIOSA Crafters Store” in Bldg. 20. Irish Flats Irish Flats, one of the original NIOSA areas, features Irish folk music and a host of filling fare to commemorate the Irish settlers of yesteryear. When visitors take a break from singing along to Irish ballads played by Ravenmoor, they can try Potato Skins and the addictive Blarney Bacon (brown sugar crusted bacon). Irish Flats also sells Touch of the Leprechaun temporary tattoos and specialty cascarones with Irish themes. The area offers a version of the very popular Smirnoff Preparadas called “Leprechaun Preparadas” that are made with Green Apple Smirnoff and non-alcoholic Shamrock Tea (new this year). Irish Good Luck eggs (elaborately decorated cascarones) will also be for sale. Main Street USA (started in 1976) Main Street USA was established as a bicentennial project in 1976. American classics and NIOSA exclusives—including Brisket Biscuits and Fat Bread (an English muffin covered with sautéed mushrooms and Jack cheese)—appeal to hearty appetites. Fried Green Tomatoes, Strawberries and Cream, Lemonade, Fried Dill Dippers (new this year), Banana Splits, Fried Oreos and Chicken & Waffles on a Stick (new this year) round out the menu in Main Street. Visitors can enjoy the sounds of C Rock Band and DJ Mike. Mexican Market (original area of NIOSA) The atmosphere of a Mexican market is re-created with colorful papel picado banners and paper flowers in this original area of NIOSA. Celebrating the city’s cultural ties to Mexico, this is where visitors find a NIOSA exclusive: Anticuchos—a marinated steak shish-k-bob with origins from Bolivia. First introduced in 1955, hundreds of volunteers serve up more than 9,600 of these each year. Other favorites include Chalupas, Quesadillas, Fajitas de Pollo, Bean Tacos with fresh corn tortillas made on the spot, Burritos, Tamales with Chili (new: will top tamales with chili, if desired), Enchiladas, Elotes (corn on the cob), Mexican Coffee, Fruit Kabobs, Pink Lemonade and Daiquiris de Frescas. Mexican sweets include Churros and Buñuelos (crisp fried Mexican pastry discs dusted with cinnamon and sugar). Workers costumed in huipiles, Oaxacan dresses, sombreros, ponchos and peasant attire enhance the flavor of Mexico, along with the musical entertainment of Karizma. In keeping with the spirit of a true marketplace, a Tienda booth offers folk art from all over Mexico, including toys, cookware, apparel and accessories. The Bolsa booth originated and still resides here, selling hand-painted paper shopping bags decorated by area artists. Cascarones (confetti eggs) originated at NIOSA in the Mexican Market in 1959 and are now a Fiesta staple. Each year, approximately 35 dedicated Conservation Society volunteers work year-round to make more than 50,000 of the popular confetti eggs. For only $1 revelers may buy three cascarones to crack over the heads of fellow visitors showering them with confetti. The sale of cascarones at NIOSA has contributed approximately $648,344 for historic preservation projects since they were introduced in 1959. Mission Trail (added in 1990) These sacred San Antonio landmarks are commemorated in the Mission Trail area, which features facades of four missions of the San Antonio Missions Historical Park. This area also symbolizes the Conservation Society’s successful promotion of a parkway to connect San Antonio’s historic missions in the 1990s. During 1993-94, the Society was integral in securing federal funding for the Mission Trails project. The Society was integral in the Missions’ nomination as an UNESCO World Heritage Site, initiating the nomination process in 2006 and continuing to support the nomination until they were awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 2015. This area features Prairie Chicken, Mission Maiz, Taco de Espada, Armadillo Eggs (jalapeños stuffed with cheeses and baked in a biscuit-batter), Sangria Slush and Chuleta de Puerco (Pork Chop on a Stick). Pan Dulce de Mission (funnel cakes) and Buñuelos a la Mode (ice cream with Cajeta sauce and buñuelo chips) help satisfy those with sweet cravings. Fortune Tellers predict the fortunes of some, while others find Fiesta hats at the Sombrero Wagon. Caricaturists will capture humorous renditions of NIOSA’s visitors. The country western sounds of the Good Ole Boys entertain guests. An ATM and a First Aid station are located on S. Presa. Sauerkraut Bend (added in 1972) German influence in San Antonio dates back to the early 1800s, when immigrants built their homes in the King William neighborhood along a bend in the San Antonio River. Called Sauerkraut Bend, it inspired the NIOSA version, which is set in the Villita Assembly Building. Eurofest and the Cadence Cloggers of San Antonio (returning this year) will provide continuous entertainment (including the popular Chicken Dance). Visitors to the cool, spacious hall enjoy Sausage on a Stick (1,200 pounds worth, made exclusively for NIOSA), Deutsche Nachtische (sweets including Black Forest Cake and gingerbread), Bretzlyn, Deutsche Ice Cream, Bavarian Kreme, Bratwurst Broetchen, Potato Pancakes, a Sausage Sampler, Pigs in a Blanket and Schinkenbrot (shaved ham on rye with butter and garnished with a gherkin pickle--new this year).

Atlanta native and Veritas Collaborative CEO, Stacie McEntyre, and her team have opened the city’s first outpatient medical clinic for eating disorders. McEntyre began her career in Atlanta as a social worker treating patients with eating disorders over 25 years ago. “I’m proud to bring Veritas’ services to my hometown,” said McEntyre. “We seek to meet a critical need in Atlanta by providing specialty medical services for those suffering from eating disorders.” Veritas Collaborative’s new clinic opened Feb. 1 at 6600 Peachtree Dunwoody Rd., Bldg. 400, Ste. 150 and will offer outpatient medical services for children, adolescents, and young adults with known or suspected eating disorders including anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder. In the coming weeks, the organization plans to add additional outpatient services including psychiatric, dietetic, and therapeutic care. Dr. Anna Tanner, executive director of medical clinic programs at Veritas Collaborative, will lead the clinic and also provide direct medical care. Tanner is an eating disorder expert and holds credentials as a certified eating disorders specialist by the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals. Prior to joining Veritas Collaborative, she worked for 17 years as a board-certified pediatrician and partner at Gwinnett Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine. “Most people don’t realize that eating disorders can be lethal,” said Dr. Anna Tanner, executive director of medical clinic programs at Veritas Collaborative. “Our hope is that by opening this new medical clinic for the Atlanta community, we can intervene early and help more individuals recover and thrive.” The opening of the Atlanta clinic follows a year of expansive growth for Veritas. Based in Durham, North Carolina, the organization entered its first out-of-state market through the opening of a new facility in Richmond, Virginia in February 2016. Later that same year, Veritas opened a 25-bed adult hospital and expanded its inaugural child and adolescent hospital to 40 beds in Durham due to increased demand. Since its inception in 2012, Veritas Collaborative has treated over 575 patients and their families. About Veritas Collaborative Veritas Collaborative is a specialty hospital system for the treatment of eating disorders. Providing a range of services for individuals of all ages, Veritas offers inpatient, acute residential, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and outpatient levels of care. Delivering individualized, evidence-based care in a gender-diverse and inclusive environment, Veritas envisions a world in which all persons with eating disorders and their families have access to best-practice care and hold hope for a cure.
