Huffington Post - about 1 year
This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of attending the 10th Annual Celebrity Basketball Charity Game and Toy Drive, presented by Team Watson and TMT at the Calabasas High School Gymnasium. Hosted by boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, the event raised money for kids battling cancer and helped put smiles on the faces of dozens of disadvantaged children this holiday season. Team Mayweather vs. Team Watson line up. The event was impressive on many levels. I was blown away by the sheer number of people in attendance, as well as the large number of well-known celebrities that came out to show their support for the cause. Celebrities such as Travis Barker, former NBA point guard and hall of famer Mark Jackson, Los Angeles Clipper Paul Pierce, as well as many others, were all there to take a stand against cancer in the community.

FRA Guidance on Pedestrian Safety Still Misses the Real Problem
DC Streets Blog - almost 5 years
Image: Operation Lifesaver The Federal Railroad Administration doesn’t call people walking near railroad tracks “pedestrians.” It calls them “trespassers.” True, a person walking on railroad tracks is often, by definition, breaking the law, since the tracks are private property. But the nomenclature gives the impression that the agency might be somewhat less sympathetic than they should be about the 427 people who lost their lives last year walking on or near railroad tracks. And last year was a good year – the FRA estimates the average to be about 500 deaths annually [PDF]. The FRA just issued Guidance on Pedestrian Crossing Safety At or Near Passenger Stations [PDF]. This document deals with “pedestrians,” not  “trespassers,” because it deals only with officially sanctioned crossings, and only those at or near stations. “It’s a guide to best practices in crossing engineering, warning devices, markings, signage, that kind of thing,” FRA spokesperson Rob Kulat told me. The d ...
