Will I be in the wrong if I run over a pedestrian when they carelessly cross in front of my vehicle with their nose buried in their iPhone? A batch of teenagers fumbled onto Lindero Canyon Blvd at the Thousand Oaks Blvd intersection as I was making a left-hand turn onto Lindero Canyon Blvd. The light was green for my turn. They were either talking to each other, reading emails, texting or maybe playing Candy Crush. Fortunately, I was just starting up and not driving directly into the turn at a higher speed. I tooted my horn, cursed impotently, lowered my window and called them idiots (a dumb and fruitless gesture). Their response was “Duh” and a giggle. A gaggle of Bart Simpsons maybe? Had I wiped them out it would have been an interesting insurance claim as I was likely to have been left hanging out to dry and tarred and feathered. My point is that the disconnect from our surroundings and reality is accelerating. Everywhere I look, almost everyone I see who is under 35 is clutching their mobile phone or has their face buried in it as they walk along. Robin’s grandchildren need to have their iPads taken from them so we can have a conversation. Frankly, I yearn for the good old days of dirty pay phones. When I was out on business, I carried a can of Lysol with me to disinfect filthy pay phones so I could call my office, a client or call home. I don’t care!! Bring them back!

GIVING BACK

Community Activist Leaves Lasting Mark

ARTICLE ALICIA DOYLE

BETH LEDER-PACK, A SANTA MONICA COMMUNITY LEADER AND ACTIVIST KNOWN FOR MAKING A TREMENDOUS POSITIVE IMPACT DURING HER LIFETIME, PASSED AWAY ON MARCH 30 AT AGE 60 IN HER SLEEP AFTER A BRIEF ILLNESS. Beth, a longtime Santa Monica resident who worked as an Information Analyst for the City of Santa Monica for 25 years, was a great woman, mother, sister and community leader, emphasizes her brother, Michael Leder. “She was an amazing woman,” he says. “As a community activist, she helped thousands of women empower themselves to stand on their own, enabling them to continue the fight for those who were unable or afraid to fight for themselves.” Born in Stamford, Connecticut, Beth graduated from Harriton High School in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, earning her bachelor's degree in Natural Resources from Cornell University and her master's degree in Regional Planning from the University of Pennsylvania.

on a holiday show every December at the naval base in Port Hueneme, in which volunteers present a full production, featuring stars from past shows, youth performance groups, Santa Claus and other holiday characters. “It’s one of the most important and rewarding things we do,” Cassidy emphasizes. “We’re there with families—mothers and fathers with children by themselves—waiting for their spouses to come home. All of our performers donate their time and talent and it’s a truly beautiful production.” In other philanthropic endeavors, 5-Star Theatricals features the Starlight Teens and Singers, comprised of more than 60 children between the ages of 8 and 14, who perform for free at senior citizen facilities in the Conejo Valley and beyond, as well as for Rotary Clubs in town. There are no fees to participate in Starlight Teens and Singers, and the performers are encouraged to further their education and experience with other groups, shows and entertainment, and to bring that experience back to Starlight Teens and Singers.

Education is a key component, as they are taught a variety of material and songs, learning various styles and discovering great music of earlier eras. But even more importantly, 5-Star is teaching the youth to serve their community, Murray notes. Additionally, 5-Star Theatricals does outreach through its Adopt-A-Bus program, which gives children who have never seen a musical the opportunity to see a production for free. Last year they had 800 children in attendance and plan to continue to grow this program with the help of the community. CONTINUED >

Summer Classics’ resin wicker is constructed from virgin resin that is wrapped around a steel frame and crafted using the most extensive UV protocol in the industry. This is furniture that will stand the test of time. From the gorgeous striations on the Rustic woven collection to the 1950’s inspired, brushed finish of the Newport collection, the resin wicker furniture by Summer Classics is as varied as it is stunning. Lightweight, durable and zero maintenance are all attributes that have made aluminum a popular outdoor furniture material. Summer Classics’ wrought aluminum is made from heavy gauge aluminum, features 360-degree, hand-brushed welded joints, and is painted with automotive-grade paint for maximum durability. Available in a multitude of colors, this sturdy furniture often features a brushed pattern that mimics wood grain. Like the resin wicker and teak collections, Summer Classics’ aluminum furniture is a cut above the rest. Summer Classics is that rare, luxury outdoor furniture line that hits every note. It is stylish and sophisticated, as luxurious as indoor furniture and built to last. Come check out Aldik Home’s curated collection to experience the Summer Classics difference.

Aldik Home is located at 7651 Sepulveda Boulevard in Van Nuys. Contact them at 818.988.5970 or visit AldikHome.com.

Shonan Beauty Clinic ARTICLE ALICIA DOYLE

INTERNATIONALLY RENOWNED SHONAN BEAUTY BEGAN NEARLY TWO DECADES AGO IN JAPAN, WHERE IT QUICKLY GREW TO MORE THAN 85 LOCATIONS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY. In 2017, Shonan Beauty expanded into the United States, with a Shonan Beauty Clinic now open in Thousand Oaks, where experts offer a wide range of medical-based aesthetics, including a full service regenerative and rejuvenation medispa, plus life-changing plastic surgeries. Experts at the helm of this practice include Dr. Katrina Riboni, an anesthesiologist who is associated with numerous hospitals; Dr. Allen Foulad, who is highly specialized in plastic surgery of the face; Scott Mortensen, a board certified physician assistant who has more than two decades of experience in the medical field; and Diana Ruiloba, a board-certified physician assistant who has expertise in skin care and collagen-inducing technologies.

VITAL INFUSION Shonan Beauty Clinic in Thousand Oaks most recently launched IV vitamin therapy, which involves the administration of vitamin and nutrients directly into the bloodstream. These vitamins and minerals, which come from a sterile compounding company, include Vitamin B-12, Vitamin C, niacin, calcium, magnesium, amino acids and zinc, as well as NAD+, 32

a coenzyme found in all living cells that’s required for the fundamental biological processes that make life possible. This infusion also includes glutathione, which is considered one of the most important and potent antioxidants; as well as the amino acid L-cysteine, which brightens the skin and reduces oxidative stress, which can ultimately prevent cell damage. By taking these vitamins and minerals intravenously, they go directly into the bloodstream and therefore bypass the digestive system, which increases their absorption directly into the cells, giving them 100% bioavailability. IV vitamin therapy takes between 30 to 45 minutes, in which patients can relax, read a book or work on their laptop. For those who don’t have much time, this treatment can also be done as a “push,” which takes about 15 minutes. The benefits of IV vitamin therapy are vast, including immersing the cells with hydration, which make the skin look radiant and more youthful, as well as overall healing and repair in the entire body. And because the vitamins and nutrients bypass the digestive system, they give patients a quicker shot of vitality through the organs and muscles, which can last up to four weeks.

PRP THERAPY BENEFITS Shonan Beauty Clinic in Thousand Oaks also offers an outpatient treatment that involves utilizing a person’s own platelet-rich plasma—known as platelet-rich plasma therapy or PRP therapy— which literally stimulates new cell growth in the patient’s body wherever it is injected. This can be used for hair restoration, undereye fillers and lip-plumping, as well as help with pain, arthritis or injuries. PRP therapy is often sought out by athletes to help with symptoms, including swelling, stiffness, inflammation, tenderness and pain. On the aesthetic side, it promotes smooth and toned skin and reduces the appearance of scars and blemishes. Shonan Beauty Clinic also offers outpatient procedures, including Botox injections, dermal fillers, laser skin treatments, micro-needling, non-invasive body sculpting and tattoo removal; as well as surgical procedures, including liposuction for the face and body, brow lift, lower and upper eyelid blepharoplasty and rhinoplasty. In addition to its location in Thousand Oaks, Shonan Beauty Clinic also has an office in Irvine, led by Dr. Yoko Suzuki, and offers complete gynecological services.

Shonan Beauty is located at 425 Haaland Dr., Suite 102, in Thousand Oaks. For more information, call 805.723.8008 or visit ShonanBeauty.com/Thousand-Oaks-location/. July 2019 | Malibu to Palisades Lifestyle
