Screen Shot 2013-03-12 at 11.07.50 AM

Info here: http://empowerla.org/city-of-l-a-releases-a-311-app/

Beginning March 18, 2013, L.A. residents can report graffiti, abandoned furniture, potholes, broken street lights and fallen trees with their iPhone and Androids. They can also use their mobile phones to find area parks, libraries, police stations, and Neighborhood Councils. City Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa unveiled the My LA 311 mobile app for the City of Los Angeles at Google’s LA offices last month.

By taking advantage of a smartphone’s GPS and camera, the app promises to make reporting complaints a simpler process.

“My LA 311″ comes alongside the first major re-launch of the city’s website in 15 years. The new LACity.org offers a smarter user experience with self-updating “Top 10 Service Requests”, “Top 10 City Council Files,” and a “Dynamic City Calendar.”

The citizen-centric redesign features live streaming home screen video, centralized job opportunities, and easy to access City services. The site will also provide a more social user experience through “LA City Now,” a homepage ticker-tape of every City twitter feed.

The app was developed by LA’s own 3Di Systems and will be available for download both in the iTunes store and Google Play store March 18.

American Ninja Warrior Is BACK! Smaller Park-Friendly Footprint. Filming Thru Apr 8th

ninja

American Ninja Warrior is back filming again at Venice Beach. This year they have constructed a more park-friendly layout, not taking as much space on the grass at all up by Market St, and along down to 17th. All that grass is free for you to sleep in! The scaled back area also is more mindful of the bike path, which although they didn’t obstruct it last year, spectators cause quite a commotion… there is  now space for people to get through that area on bikes more easily. For the past few years despite some weather issues the filming and the show has been a HUGE success… more photos to come.

The whole rig will be cleared out by April 8th.

Juvenile Enters Traffic To Retrieve Skateboard, Hit By Car – Now In Critical Condition

At around 4:30 p.m. this evening a juvenile reportedly fell off their skateboard near Lincoln Blvd and Westchester Pkwy, went into the road to retrieve it and was struck by a passing vehicle. The vehicle stopped, paramedics transported the youth to the hospital and the juvenile is listed in critical condition. The injuries were bad enough that first responders did not believe the victim survived their injuries, but last word is they were in surgery – but with critical injuries. The driver fully cooperated with authorities.

Got 1.8 Million Bucks? Buy Cher’s “Beachfront” Home (Not really beachfront…shhhh)

From Realtor.com… I wouldn’t call the walkstreets, especially 125 Vista Pl “waterfront” ….. but whatever movietown… (it’s east of Pacific… a healthy tsunami away from waterfront).

According to LA Times, the home features contemporary architecture with beamed ceilings, sliding glass walls and two fireplaces.

Burlesque” star, Cher has reportedly put her airy Venice Beach waterfront home, California, on the open listing market asking for just $1.8 million. She purchased the home back in 2010 for around $1.5 million.

The listing records at Realtor.com reveal that the home was built in 2008 and sits on a 2250 square feet lot. The home has three bedrooms and three bathrooms spread across two stories.

In the photos, not much of the home is showcased. The interiors of the home are remodeled and have a “Cher” look about it. She is said to have a taste for neutral colors.

The living room looks like a spacious area with an open-plan kitchen. A straight flight of stairs leads to the upper level. The home has a separate dining area and a laundry. The place has a small grassy garden and two covered parking spaces as well.

Check out the photos here.

Cher recently announced that the Spring release of her album has been pushed back to September, reports idolator.com. Her mother is also not in the best of health. Just days back she tweeted that her mother was ill and down with pneumonia.

“Mom isn’t feeling well! Pneumonia is hard for a young girl of 87… Sometimes I forget she’s fragile! I think of her as tough… All the women in my family are tough, as far back as any1 can remember! She lost weight, I’m jealous! She’ll bounce back soon.”

Major Fight At Oakwood Park – Crowds Defy LAPD Command Post And Calls To Evacuate

UPDATE: Crowd has dispersed, airship waiting for full crowd to beat it home.

An LAPD airship responded to a call for a large group fight, and the first time they flew over everyone stopped fighting and was just hanging out. Ten minutes after they cleared, the call came out again, this time that a male black was beating a Time Warner Cable guy out of his truck on Westminster between 6th and 7th. And then all hell broke loose.

Fights broke out all over, a command post was set up and additional units were called to respond from outside Pacific Division. A second airship arrived and ordered all occupants of the park to go home. Officers on the scanner said that they shouted they would refuse to leave… and so out came the riot gear. Officers are donning riot gear and preparing to sweep the park… story still developing. Word is the occupants of the park are vandalizing cars and property as they move.
