Bellamy’s – A Pleasant Surprise for Your Palate

Escondido California, a quaint town that is a reminder of days past. As in most town’s Main Street is the hub. In Escondido, the small businesses can still afford to rent their storefronts on Main Street. A Mexican Restaurant, a dog grooming salon, small appliance store and a watch maker. Businesses that still start with first names.

The place to eat here in Escondido is Bellamy’s, owned by one Brian Bonar, a Scottish entrepreneur who decided to start a mini-empire in the restaurant business in the North of San Diego County.

Bonar has plans for a four-star event center in Bandy Canyon, where he owns a 144-acre property. There will be a signature restaurant that will boast a Master Chef of France, whom he recruited from the El Bizcocho, along with Mike Reidy as the executive chef and Trevor De Costa as the front of the house man.

The signage at Bellamy’s along with the décor will come as a surprise. The sign in front is a large tarpaulin, such as you would paint a giant sign or picture on, or a banner for an event. As for the interior, it has been dubbed as model-home-chic, with walls painted in a Coppertone shade, great jazz paintings and very plush seating.

The food is excellent. Try their beet salad made from red and golden beets and served over a bed of porcini mushroom powder with cocoa nibs and pistachios. Another must try is the corn soup made with cream and espelette peppers, served cold over a fantastic shrimp Ceviche with ginger, cilantro, lime juice, and olive oil. The Parsley Cream Risotto with salmon poached to perfection, shaved summer truffles and crunchy with sea salt is an excellent choice.

The servers at Bellamy’s are professional, courteous, and well versed in the dishes that are served. They can instruct you on how to consume a dish that you are not familiar with and not be annoying or being pretentious.

Andy Wirth of Squaw Valley Ski Resort Reflects on Attempts to Incorporate Olympic Valley

Andy Wirth, CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, invested “hundreds of thousands of dollars opposing” efforts to incorporate or consolidate rural Lake Tahoe. Wirth feared consolidation would increase his business and property taxes and negatively impact the quality of services received by residents living in the area surrounding Lake Tahoe.

Andy Wirth of Olympic Valley, California As the CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, has worked tirelessly to make the ski area one of the top tourist destinations in the world. Lake Tahoe and Olympic Valley have always been friendly cooperative small businesses working together to provide seamless service delivery to tourists vacationing in and around its many resorts. Attempts to incorporate Olympic Valley and north Lake Tahoe depleted Wirth’s resources more than any natural challenge created by the weather. Wirth believed that the possible consolidation of north Lake Tahoe jeopardized even “road maintenance and snow plowing” services in Olympic Valley Incorporation.

Unyielding draughts devastated the Squaw Valley ski season until 2015 when cold temperatures brought an early winter snow storm to Squaw Valley and the Lake Tahoe area. The storm symbolized the end of the political battle to consolidate. The 2016 Olympic Valley ski season opened earlier than any other ski season during the past 10 years. It marked the end of the prolonged fight for incorporation and the destructive battle between the “Olympic Valley Resort and North America’s iconic winter sports resorts.”

Andy Wirth “worked tirelessly” to make Squaw Valley Ski Holdings an international tourist destination. He contributes a major portion of his profits to service organizations in the Lake Tahoe area to improve the quality of life for all residents of Olympic Valley and north Lake Tahoe. He supports wounded warriors through his Ironman organization which funds projects to assist Navy Seals returning home from tours of active duty. He honors the Navy Seals and contributes some of this profit to the Navy Seal Foundation. 

George Soros Attacked by Commentators on the Far-Right

George Soros is no stranger to controversy. From his wildly successful career as one of the top hedge fund managers in the world to his work on progressive causes through the Open Societies Foundation, Soros has attracted plenty of attention over the years from those on the far-right who do not agree with his principles. His attackers have stooped to a new low in now calling George Soros an anti-Semite and anti-European in the newest George Soros conspiracy.

It should be noted that this latest George Soros conspiracy is not actually a controversy at all. Rather, the newest George Soros Wikileaks scandal is nothing more than a crazed attempt to create speculation over Soros’ involvement in causes around the world. Through the George Soros emails that were just released, people have tried to fabricate a narrative that Soros is involved in helping to fight against Israel and actually supports Palestine. The truth is that Soros has supported watchdog organizations all around the world that identify violations of human rights by governments and ruling political parties. In Israel, Soros was doing the same thing by funding forces to expose various human rights violations regardless of who was responsible fro the abuses. To say that this would make Soros an anti-Semite is nothing short of insane.

George Soros – Project Syndicate

The George Soros Wikileaks dump has also been used to fuel rumors that Soros is involved in making the refugee crisis worse in Europe by helping to create the circumstances that have forced the refugee problem upon Europe. From the George Soros emails, his opponents are trying to show that Soros is responsible for the entire refugee problem in Europe. These ridiculous speculations are not grounded in reality or even possibility in that Soros could never actually generate such circumstances even if he wanted to.

What many of his opponents fail to keep in mind is that Soros was originally an immigrant himself during World War II. He knows all too well what it is like to be forced from your home and be at the mercy of a political situation over which you have no control at all. This is one of the reasons that George Soros has dedicated so much of his time and resources to supporting refugees around the world and implores other countries to reach out to them. There is absolutely no reason that Soros would ever want another person to have to endure what he did at the hands of the Nazi occupation in World War II. Quite to the contrary, Soros works every day to make sure that this never happens again anywhere else in the world. For Soros, he believes that there are possibilities and solutions that can be achieved through the cooperation of leaders around the world to solve the refugee crisis without any one country having to suffer at a disproportionate rate. He recognizes the severity of this issue and his devoted his own personal wealth to working toward a solution. His detractors would rather you ignore these inconvenient facts.

Dr. Jennifer Walden on Why There Are No Women In Surgery

Dr. Jennifer Walden has a long and successful history in the field of medicine. She grew up in Austin to eventually become the salutatorian of her ear at the University of Texas Medical Branch. Immediately after, she went on to her surgery fellowship at the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital.

With the knowledge she gained in her educational career, she started her own practice that proved to be wildly successful in New York City. Eventually, she returned to Austin in 2011 and co-authored a book called Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Jennifer Walden is a rare breed. In the state of Texas, there are only 12 board-certified cosmetic surgeons who are females while there are only 180 nationally. She has been in this position for approximately eight years. Within those eight years she has focused almost exclusively on cosmetic enhancement surgeries. Specifically, she specializes in breast augmentations, face lifts, and rhinoplasty. In addition, she provides more general cosmetic procedures such as liposuction and Botox injection.

Walden offers some insight on why there are so few female surgeons around the country. Primarily, she says, it involves the long waiting time necessary in receiving the proper education. Nearly a decade of learning is necessary after medical school training in order to become a surgeon. Often times, this prevents women from having children as they are so loaded on with the stress of work and school. In addition, like in other male dominated sectors such as financial planning, women are not particularly welcomes. The culture surrounding surgery is very male oriented which makes it difficult for women to become acclimated.

This is highlighted by the night and day percentages of surgeons around the nation. Roughly 10% of cosmetic and plastic surgeons are women. This makes it increasingly hard for women who want to get into the field to actually break through the gender barrier.

Cosmetic surgery as a field of practice and study can greatly benefit from a more balanced work environment. Dr. Walden cites many different barriers of entry from prohibiting women from entering. She was able to overcome them, but not many can.
