Member Spotlight: Templework LA – Pleased to Announce Marie is Joining TEMPLEWORK LA!

October 23, 2017  |  No comments

Templework LA Marie Marie was first introduced to Massage Therapy in 2010, while attending a massage workshop, where she was working as a volunteer at a local yoga studio and holistic healing center. It was from that day on she realized the powerful effect of massage and how it would always have a significant role in her life. After spending five years working in the fashion industry, she became eager to continue learning about the human body and healing. In 2015, she graduated from the National Holistic Institute with 1,350 hours of combined extensive training in Neuromuscular Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Therapy, Swedish, Pre-natal/post-natal, Thai, Shiatsu, Somatic therapy, and Energy work. She is a firm believer that when the mind is in-sync with the body, the physical body can then receive the full benefit of healing. With this in mind during her sessions, she enjoys facilitating mind, body, spirit healing through guided breathing, meditation, and visualizations focused on the act of “letting go.” To deeper her knowledge and practice, she is continuing to study Ayurveda Holistic Medicine, an India based ancient natural healing system. Marie is truly passionate about helping people by using a variety of modalities to create a customized session based on the individual’s needs.

LA City Councilman Asks Public to Track His Discretionary Spending

October 2, 2017  |  No comments

After accusing his predecessor of misspending discretionary funds, Los Angeles City Councilman David Ryu Tuesday released an online tool the public can use to track his spending in a move he said was about creating transparency at City Hall.

“I am excited today to announce the release of our CD4 Checkbook. This interactive data shows how my office has disbursed it’s discretionary funding since 2015 — delivering on a pledge to open up our books and bring a new standard of transparency to City Hall,” Ryu said.

Each council member gets access to discretionary funds through several sources, and the total amount available varies by district because it includes the sale of surplus property in the district and other sources that can fluctuate.

Although there are guidelines on how the funds can be spent they can still be used in a variety of ways, including staff salaries or neighborhood improvement projects.

The available funds per council member can reach several million. After taking office Ryu successfully asked the City Council to rescind more than $600,000 of last-minute discretionary expenditures LaBonge made before leaving office for about 40 neighborhood projects and community organizations.

The online tool released by Ryu gives an accounting of all of the $2.5 million in discretionary funds his office has distributed since he took office. Most of the funds went toward infrastructure, traffic, transit and beautification projects.

After taking office Ryu also formed a Discretionary Funds Task Force citizen panel to review discretionary spending.

Ryu said he worked with City Controller Ron Galperin’s office to develop the online tool, which can be found at http://davidryu.lacity.org/cd4_checkbook.

Member Spotlight: Deasy/Penner&Partners – Cantilever House :: Lee + Mundwiler Architects

September 28, 2017  |  No comments

Gorgeous new listing by Chamber member William Baker of Deasy/Penner&Partners2995.Swan

On an elevated corner lot a block from the popular park at the south end of Silver Lake, a short walk to the coffee shops and boutiques of the Boulevard, this striking piece of architecture by Cara Lee and Stephan Mundwiler is sited to take advantage of city views and abundant natural light. A refined sense of scale and proportion defines the exterior elevations and interior volumes, an open floor plan unifies the composition and large glass doors slide open to embrace the landscape. Natural wood floors and imported stone soften the award-winning architects’ design, while a pristine white European kitchen juxtaposes eloquently with polished concrete floors and accent walls. Cantilevered dramatically over the carport, an attached in-law suite has its own separate entrance, full bath and kitchenette, with a proven history of substantial vacation rental income. All finishes are of the highest quality. Rarely do we find a home of this caliber at the precise intersection of high design, prime location and luxurious lifestyle.
