Grand Opening Intercontinental Hotel Los Angeles Downtown “Behind the Scenes”

The newest addition to luxury hospitality in downtown Los Angeles has arrived! On Friday, June 23, 2017 InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown hosted its Grand Opening Party. More than eight hundred guests, including city and state officials, dignitaries, business leaders, influencers and tastemakers all enjoyed a first look at this groundbreaking new property. The hotel is the tallest building west of Chicago with 73 stories rising 1,100 feet above street level.

Go “Behind the Scenes” for a look at some of the details involved in planning and executing an event this grand. Featured in this film are Krystal Moreno, Director of Social Catering and Amy Funke, Director of Marketing and Communication at InterContinental Hotel Los Angeles Downtown along with David Merrell, CEO & Creative Director of AOO Events.

This event was years in the making and the vision combined with the planning, staffing, entertaining, feeding and documenting this event took many hours of coordination by some of the most gifted people in the event industry.

At 1,100 feet and the tallest building west of the Chicago, the L.A. skyscraper is hard to miss.
With a sweeping roofline, it stands out by day among the flat tops of its tall rivals and at night is illuminated with an ever-changing colored light show.

Changing the Los Angeles skyline and framed by Korean Airline’s logo is the 73-story building that houses the InterContinental Hotel, several floors of office space and five restaurants.

Yang-Ho Cho who heads Korea’s Hanjin Group, Korean Airlines largest shareholder, celebrated the grand opening of the skyscraper with parties and a show of the building’s dancing LED lights visible for miles. “The Wilshire Grand is a new tent pole for Los Angeles,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti a few days before it opened.

The InterContinental has 889 rooms. Guests check in on the 70th floor, in front of floor-to-ceiling windows where blocks of the city can be seen far below. There is a 24-hour cafe and a French steakhouse on the 71st floor. The curved glass top reflects the shape of one of California’s most famous rock formations, Half Dome in Yosemite.

Pain Management Kaiser Permanente – Riverside, California

Pain can be scary, frustrating, and overwhelming. Take action against pain.

We all have aches and pains from time to time. But if you have chronic pain, you probably experience pain that changes how you live every day. You – and your doctor – might not even know what’s causing your pain. 

Whatever the cause, your pain is real. Chronic pain is not in your head, and it is not a sign of weakness.

If you’ve tried pain management before with poor results, you might feel hopeless. But there are some things you can do today to start feeling better and take control of pain.

We’ll show you how to safely use alternative pain treatments, medications, pain management classes and counseling, and at-home options to begin feeling like yourself again.

Begin by learning more about some of the causes of chronic pain, and how to talk to your doctor about what you’re feeling.

Non-drug therapy and alternative treatments can help you manage pain through movement, body work, supplements, and surgery. These work best when you care for yourself properly at home, and add medication as needed. You may find an increase in your pain when you start therapy but this usually gets better.

La Sierra University Promotional Film

La Sierra University Graduates Largest Class in School’s History 2017 – Highlight Film

06/20/2017 – Author: Darla Martin Tucker
RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Early on the morning of June 18, before the heat of the day set in, long lines of black-robed graduates, many adorned with colorful leis and graduation caps, stood on the upper mall of La Sierra University’s campus waiting for the organ’s resounding strains of “Pomp and Circumstance” to begin at 8 a.m.

“It doesn’t seem real,” said Kaitlyn Witherby, a management and marketing double major as she stood in line with her classmates. “I’m excited, nervous, but mostly excited,” said chemistry and Spanish major Caleb Flores of Fresno.

A short time later, Kristen Soares, president of the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities stood before La Sierra’s 2017 graduating class seated on Founders’ Green and advised them to create memory imprints of the day and of other special moments in their lives. She also told the graduates to value setbacks and mistakes as resilience-building moments along the path toward their goals.

Soares gave an address titled “Be Present” for La Sierra’s commencement which saw 475 students, the university’s largest graduating class to date, receive 494 degrees.

The AICCU represents the chief executives of California’s 79 private, nonprofit colleges and universities and those institutions’ 330,000 students on issues of public policy. Soares’ efforts include advocating for the Cal Grant, a state financial aid program for higher education. Before joining the AICCU, Soares served as a senior associate vice president for government relations and civic engagement at the University of Southern California for 23 years.

La Sierra University is a Seventh-day Adventist non-profit co-educational university located in Riverside, California, United States. La Sierra offers undergraduate, graduate and doctoral level degrees and is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and the Adventist Accrediting Association.

AboutUs
The year was 2002…HTA’s founder, David Centner, had a vision for introducing automated toll payment to the rental car industry. Rental car customers had long been burdened with stopping to pay cash for their tolls, collecting paper receipts for expense reimbursement, or simply running the toll and receiving a hefty violation. This was an era of mass inefficiency. Toll authorities had huge volumes of unpaid tolls, rental agencies had millions of dollars in toll liabilities, and rental customers were idling at toll plazas everywhere.

Fast forward to today…As the pioneer at what we do, HTA is the leading company in our category serving most of the rental car industry. Automated tolling in rental cars has become a customer expectation. We have grown quickly maintaining the highest levels of service while continuing to push the envelope on technology. As delivered through our killer proprietary technology platform “TollKeeper” within our Agile Scrum development environment, we offer the most comprehensive electronic toll collection solutions for fleets in the world.
HTA’s culture is fun, casual, and fast-paced. Our people are flat-out exceptional. Our offices are bright, collaborative and open. We are growing and expanding to new heights, yet we remain committed to our humble foundation.

Our major rental car partners include: Alamo, Avis, Budget, Enterprise, National, Payless and dozens of independents, as well as franchisees.

Technology
With three technology patents and one design patent, we provide customized turnkey electronic toll collection solutions for fleets and transportation agencies. Powered by our proprietary “TollKeeper” software, we are fully integrated with toll roads throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada. Our transponder-based solutions combine specially designed housing units with standard toll-road-issued transponders. Our solutions are supported with full back-end administrative services, including billing, customer service and dispute resolution of toll violations.

Our Services
HTA’s rental agency customers, their customers and state tolling authorities all benefit from HTA’s all-inclusive electronic toll collection services:

Rental agencies eliminate toll-violation expenses while increasing customer satisfaction Rental customers save time by avoiding toll plaza delays and enjoy the convenience of not having to carry change or collect toll receipts. Drivers conserve gasoline and reduce emissions by eliminating stop-and-start queues at cash lanes. We are really proud of this accomplishment.

Toll authorities lower their operating costs, while reducing traffic congestion and emissions from idling vehicles

And most importantly, we always “service sensationally and delight deliciously”!
