Chief Wells, Mr. Pickens and Chief Sanchez are well known for their commitment to young people and MPYD is grateful to each of these men for taking time to share their wisdom during our weeklong series on leadership,â€ stated Cameron Turner, who coordinates MPYDâ€™s Lunch With the Future calendar.Pasadena Fire Chief Calvin Wells (right) and John Muir High School Principal Timothy Sippel (left) greet MPYD students Carlos Vasquez and Jordan Howard after the chiefâ€™s presentation on leadership.Sharing anecdotes from his 36-year fire service career as well and his long history as a youth baseball coach, Pasadena Fire Chief Wells described several characteristics of effective leadership including accountability, integrity, communication, and regarding leadership as service to others.“For me it’s been about a calling. That is my sense of duty,â€ Wells said of his role as fire chief. â€œWe run about sixteen thousand calls a day and I have to make sure that every time we answer that call, that the person answering that call does it in such a way that is caring, competent and compassionate to everybody they touch.”Ricky Pickens (center) is joined by longtime MPYD mentor Philip Holland (right) and MPYD staff member Cameron Turner (left).Police Chief Sanchez asked students to describe the kind of leader they would follow. MPYD members responded by citing characteristics such as integrity, honesty, trustworthiness and the ability to listen to your team. Referencing the domestic violence case involving former Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice, Sanchez said that men demonstrate leadership by responding calmly to emotionally heated situations and by respecting women. “I wonder how you treat women. If you’re respectful to them or if you comment under your breath about what they wear or how they conduct themselves. Men tend to do those kinds of things. (But if you do that) you’re eroding, you’re wearing away your own character,” Sanchez told the MPYD students.Pasadena Fire Chief Calvin Wells (Center), John Muir High School Principal Timothy Sippel (Right) and Executive Director Greg Middleton (Left)Ricky Pickens, Director of Prevention and Intervention Services at the Flintridge Center, shared insights from his more than 20 years of working closely with street gangs in and around Pasadena. Explaining how he avoided criminal life despite having several gang affiliated family members, Pickens urged the MPYD youth, “Be your own self. That means doing the right thing when nobody else is looking. Be above mediocrity. Be above the image of the average African-American and Latino high school student. When they say you can’t get A’s and B’s in classes, you can do it!”MPYD presents speakers from a broad range of career fields and life experiences through its Lunch With the Future series. The events take place on the Muir campus every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday during the school lunch period.Upcoming Lunch With the Future speakers include former PCC and UNLV football coach Harvey Hyde, Pasadena Deputy Police Chief Darryl Qualls, Pasadena City Councilmembers John J. Kennedy and Victor M. Gordo, aerospace engineer Luis Dominguez, entrepreneur Lonzie Johnson, filmmaker Flavio Morales and many more. On October 21, MPYD will host a special Lunch With the Future Roundtable with PUSD Superintendent Dr. Brian McDonald, PUSD Board President Scott Phelps and PUSD Board Member Tyron Hampton.For further information on MPYD or to become a volunteer or donor please contact Executive Director Greg Middleton at (626) 396-5600 ext 82510.

Smith, Senior Pastor, Friendship Pasadena on Sunday, September 25, 2016. Pastor Smith has pastored the Friendship Baptist Church since 1996. “The Jewel of Old Pasadena” stands as a glowing reminder of the African American presence in this part of the city. While remaining true to the church’s historical roots, Pastor Smith has sought to keep the ministries of the church relevant with contemporary application of the Gospel message. Having been raised in Friendship since birth, the relationship he has with the church is very personal. His love for his work is only surpassed by his love for the people whom he shepherds. Pastor Smith is committed to a biblical expository ministry and delivers his sermons whereas even a little child can comprehend.He is the Past President of the Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance of Greater Pasadena (IMA). He desired to create an atmosphere of unity and fellowship among Christian Clergy, resulting in a unified presence in the cities in which they serve. He believes that there are no “Big I’s” or “Little You’s”, and that every ministry ordained by God has value, whatever the size. He believes that “There are no small churches. Everything God creates is intended to thrive and grow.” He is also a member of the Ecumenical Council of Pasadena area Churches (ECPAC), an association of churches which strives to minister to the less fortunate and the underserved. Friends In Deed, The Bad Weather Shelter and other civic minded efforts provide emergency services to those who qualify. Additionally, Pastor Smith serves as Vice President of The Clergy Community Coalition, a non-profit organization which seeks to address the issue of affordable housing in the Pasadena area, where solutions to the economic, educational and social barriers that make affordable housing so difficult are developed and implemented through public forums and clergy participation.Pastor Lucious has been married to his wife, Genine, for 25 years. They have a daughter, Camille, and son, Jordan, and believe that a strong sense of family responsibility is essential. “God created the family before He created the Church” is something Pastor Smith constantly affirms. “Caring for your family should not supersede your love of the Lord. It does, however, demonstrate it.”Friendship Pasadena, 80 W. Dayton St., Pasadena, (626) 793-1062 or visit pfbchurch.net.
Read Full Story Harvard scientists say aspects of solar geoengineering can— and should — be tested without need for full-scale deployment.A vast majority of scientists believe that the Earth is warming at an unprecedented rate and that human activity is almost certainly the dominant cause. But on the topics of response and mitigation, there is far less consensus.One of the most controversial propositions for slowing the increase in temperatures here on Earth is to manipulate the atmosphere above. Specifically, some scientists believe it should be possible to offset the warming effect of greenhouses gases by reflecting more of the sun’s energy back into space.The potential risks — and benefits — of solar radiation management (SRM) are substantial. So far, however, all of the serious testing has been confined to laboratory chambers and theoretical models. While those approaches are valuable, they do not capture the full range of interactions among chemicals, the impact of sunlight on these reactions, or multiscale variations in the atmosphere.Now, a team of researchers from the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) has outlined how a small-scale “stratospheric perturbation experiment” could work. By proposing, in detail, a way to take the science of geoengineering to the skies, they hope to stimulate serious discussion of the practice by policymakers and scientists.Ultimately, they say, informed decisions on climate policy will need to rely on the best information available from controlled and cautious field experiments.
