Store Visits: Pasadena’s The BlokeIf you’ve never been to…

Store Visits: Pasadena’s The Bloke

If you’ve never been to Southern California, I will say this: Pasadena is an odd town. On the one hand, it has a sense of place that’s tough to find in a region where outside of central Los Angeles, things can feel like an uninterrupted exurb. It’s a real town, with big trees, third- and fourth-generation civic leaders and two really kick-ass parades. On the other, it has a deep conservative bent, and a casual So-Cal feel that’s more Cheesecake Factory than cutting edge.

It makes sense, then, that Pasadena would be the home of one of California’s odder simulacra: a recreation of London’s Burlington Arcade on an otherwise unassuming commercial street. Most of the shops are entirely unremarkable – there’s no Penhaligon’s perfumes, though there is a store that only sells houseplants.

Into this odd environment steps The Bloke, a new shop which specializes in the intersection between traditional English aesthetics and American Ivy style, with a dash of mod for good measure. Owner Jeffery Plansker is new to retail, having led a career as a director in advertising to this point, but the store has a personal feel. 

The square footage isn’t huge, but I found shirts and ties from Drake’s, sleepwear from Hilditch & Key and trousers from Tellason among the options on display. There were Sanders Playboy chukkas, a few Alden models and hats (I bought one) from the British stalwart Bates. There are also a few preppy classics, like some killer needlepoint belts and a rack of vintage club ties.

Among the cased accessories were some favorites of this blog, like the Junghans Max Bill wrist watch and Braun travel alarm clocks. There’s also a small browsing library of books on style (and lifestyle) from the owner’s personal collection, which included the braille edition of Playboy that our director Ben is reading above. There are also books and magazines for sale, including new copies of The Heritage Post, The Rake and Monocle and back issues of Japanese favorites like Vintage Life.

In an adjoining room is a pop-up space – it’s currently occupied by an installation of records, books and art from Groove Merchant in San Francisco. I brought home a couple of albums (Ray Barreto and the Fania All-Stars, if you’re keeping track), as well as a few back issues of the great music magazine Wax Poetics. The shop’s manager told me they’re getting new records every few weeks and that there will be further developments in the space every few months.

In can be hard to convince an Angeleno to cross town, but hopefully it won’t be too much to ask for the many Northeast Angelenos to stop by The Bloke next door in Pasadena. It’s a lovely shop with a breezy vibe and a air of sincere personality.

Goin’ Back To Indiana: Janet Jackson Visits Childhood Home

GARY, Ind. (AP) — Singer Janet Jackson and her brother Randy Jackson have visited their childhood home in Gary, Indiana, and talked with local high school students.

 

The (Northwest Indiana) Times reports that the Jacksons made the visit to 2300 Jackson Street on Friday, a day after Janet Jackson’s concert in the Chicago area. Janet Jackson told students at Roosevelt High School that she started crying when she saw the small house. She said, “me and my family are so blessed. I’m so thankful.”

The 51-year-old said she was 8-years-old the last time she was in Gary. The family moved out of the industrial city about 30 miles (50 kilometers) southwest of Chicago after the Jackson 5 recorded their first album in 1969, when Janet Jackson was a toddler.

She also told students she misses performing with her siblings.

Taking Health Care to the Work Site Increases Primary Care Visits

A decade ago, Kaiser Permanente in Southern California sought to improve access to primary care by expanding patient services outside of hospitals and medical offices. They considered the possibility of offering health care at an actual worksite, just like Kaiser Permanente founders Sidney Garfield, MD, and Henry J. Kaiser did early in the development of what is now the nation’s largest integrated health system.

At the same time, California Steel Industries in Fontana, California, put out a request for proposals to build a primary care clinic at their worksite. Kaiser Permanente won the contract, and it changed health care significantly for many of the company’s 1,000 employees.

A research article published today found that in the seven years since the clinic opened, primary care visits among employees and their family members insured by Kaiser Permanente increased, and the rate of urgent care and emergency department visits decreased.

The future of health care

“This is a model for the future,” said Paul M. Minardi, MD, senior author on the research article and the medical director of Business Management for Southern California Permanente Medical Group. “With this model, we can bring primary care directly to people so we can provide timely preventive care, and avoid long-term implications of chronic conditions and unmanaged health needs.”

The study on the pilot project was published in the Journal of Evaluation in Clinical Practice. It compared California Steel employees who were Kaiser Permanente members with a control group of Kaiser Permanente members who lived in the same area, but did not work at California Steel.

Significant increase in primary care visits

The study found that:  

  • California Steel employees and their families had an increase in primary care visits of 43 percent, while the control group had an increase of 4 percent.
  • California Steel employees and their families had a decrease in urgent care visits of 43 percent, while the control group had a decrease of 5 percent.
  • California Steel employees and their families had a decrease in emergency room visits by 4 percent, while the control group had an increase of 8 percent.
  • While the rate of primary care visits increased for the California Steel employees by 96 percent, it only increased by 15 percent for their dependents.

“This research explores what happens when primary care is easily available,” said lead author David Glass, PhD, a Kaiser Permanente research scientist at the Department of Research & Evaluation in Southern California. “Although this was one small pilot, we learned a lot from it and were gratified to see decreases in urgent care and emergency room visits.”

While the rate of primary-care visits increased for the California Steel employees by 96 percent from the pre- to post-intervention period, it only increased by 15 percent for their dependents.

Glass also noted that due to the employees’ higher rate of primary care visits and a limited number of costly inpatient stays, there were no cost savings overall from the project. If researchers looked at dependents alone, though, they found that there was a cost savings.

“There has been a widespread belief that if patients had more access to primary care that costs would go down because there would be fewer high-cost visits to urgent care and emergency departments,” said Glass. “But the reality is much more complicated than that.”

The researchers hope to explore what happens when they work with larger employers.

Becoming health care partners

At the same time Kaiser Permanente leaders in Southern California began looking at ways to create new health care opportunities, California Steel wanted to better manage the health care costs of their employees, reduce absenteeism and allow employees to manage their health care while at work.

The clinic construction began in 2009. It was a slow time in the steel industry, so instead of laying off workers, California Steel had them build the health care center. The worksite clinic opened in 2010. It was not the first time Kaiser Permanente was part of building something at that Fontana location. California Steel is on the site of the former Kaiser Steel Mill, where the first Kaiser Permanente hospital in Southern California was built in 1942.

The California Steel Kaiser Permanente members received their care at the clinic for free (no co-pays), and received same-day appointments. California Steel employees who were not Kaiser Permanente members also could receive health care at the clinic.

In providing health care to California steel workers, Kaiser Permanente became a health care partner and helped it’s Fontana campus become smoke free, remove unhealthy foods from vending machines, offer healthier options in the cafeteria and tackle obesity with a range of programs.

More on-site clinics planned

“Kaiser Permanente saw its insured portion of the workers grow from 40 percent to 65 percent,” said Dr. Minardi, “and virtually every new employee signs on with Kaiser Permanente.”

The pilot project at California Steel will continue at least five more years.

Kaiser Permanente is now beginning a new pilot project with the employees of the county of San Diego, Dr. Minardi noted. They are seeking other large employers to work with as well.

“The intent is for us to bring care forward, create higher quality care, and in the end that will decrease the cost trend over the long term,” said Dr. Minardi. “And that will accrue back to the employer group.”

When Kaiser and Dr. Garfield opened the 50-bed hospital at the Kaiser Steel Mill, they offered something revolutionary for the time: a pre-paid health care plan to provide affordable, quality health care. The revolution into providing affordable, quality health care continues, and sometimes finds its way back to its roots, literally.

Samantha Bee Visits The Alternate Universe Where Hillary Clinton Won

On Saturday, Samantha Bee closed out her “Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner” special “Man In The High Castle” style, alternate reality film projector and all.

“What a wonderful alternate 2017 it’s been!” says Bee from another world where Hillary Clinton is now president. 

“The Patriots lost the Super Bowl, ‘Lemonade’ won Album Of The Year and every print of ‘La La Land’ spontaneously combusted.”

Unfortunately, Paul Ryan and the Republicans have already started impeachment proceedings, and Clinton’s presidency has inspired the first-ever protest seen from space: the Men’s March.

Sigh. Still, we have to assume a lot of the attendees at her star-studded event were thinking the same thing:
