Merced Mall's 21 Chairs Project Through November 2nd

Merced Mall's 21 Chairs Project Through November 2nd

Henry David Thoreau wrote, “I had three chairs in my house; one for solitude, two for friendship, three for society”.

Perhaps no other object of our daily environment has had the enduring cultural significance of the ever present chair, unconsciously yet forcefully shaping the physical and social dimensions of our lives.

The oldest surviving chair comes from the tomb of King Tut – as chairs were rare, decorative items of luxury in cradles of civilization.

Form and function of the chair’s evolution from ancient Egypt to modern day has stirred design from thrones to divans, straight-backed to overstuffed, baroque to Bauhaus, transport to office fixture – with Office Kings and Queens sitting in the biggest of them.

The chair in Western terms has been a topic in history, sociology, industrial design, architecture, holistic body/mind approaches, and ergonomics where researchers have railed against the chair in general – especially in the workplace.

ACA Extends Coverage for Former Foster Youth

More than 30,000 former foster youth in California are newly eligible for health care coverage, but unfortunately many of them are unaware. One of the hallmarks of the ACA is the option for young adults to stay on their parents’ insurance until age 26. Now, the ACA gives former foster youth the same protections by expanding their Medi-Cal coverage until age 26. Previously former foster youth were only eligible for health care until age 21.
 
There has been a critical need to expand health care coverage for this population as former foster youth are significantly less likely than their peers to have health insurance and often have greater health care needs due to abuse or neglect they experienced in childhood.

12th Annual Run for the Gold Car Show Sept. 5 & 6

Gentlemen! Start your engines for the 12th Annual Run for the Gold Car Show, sponsored by the Sierra Oakhurst Kiwanis at the Oakhurst Community Center, in Oakhurst, taking place on Friday, September 5 and Saturday, September 6, 2014.

This year’s car show honors both the 150th Anniversary of the Yosemite Grant Act and the 99th birthday of Kiwanis, founded in 1915.

The historic Yosemite Grant Act preserved the wild lands of Yosemite and the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias for all time and planted the seed for the National Park system. The Run for the gold Classic Car Show further celebrates Yosemite with a Yosemite Art & Craft show and will also show the Ken Burns film, “Yosemite: A Gathering of Spirit” to highlight the anniversary.
