Kato wins World’s 50 Best Restaurants Resy One to Watch award

[ad_1] For the first time in more than a decade, the World’s 50 Best Restaurants will recognize a Los Angeles restaurant with an award. The organization, which puts out the annual world’s 50 Best Restaurants list, has named Kato the recipient of the 2024 Resy One to Watch award. While Kato didn’t make the actual World’s 50 Best list this year, the recognition is an acknowledgment of a restaurant’s potential to be named to the list at some point in the future. “Los Angeles has one of the most exciting and diverse dining scenes in the world right now,” William Drew, director of content for the World’s 50 Best Restaurants, said in a statement to The Times. “Kato is representative of Southern California as a region, reflecting Jon Yao’s own experience as an Asian American growing up in the San Gabriel Valley, but also embodying the dynamic gastronomic spirit of Los Angeles.” Kato business partners, from left: Nikki Reginaldo, chef Jon Yao and Ryan Bailey outside the restaurants’ new location at the Row DTLA.

Hampshire’s Aquark Technologies wins £3.4m to develop cold atom clock

Hampshire’s Aquark Technologies wins £3.4m to develop cold atom clock

[ad_1] Aquark Technologies, a quantum tech company based in Southampton, has won a £3.4 million contract from Innovate UK to develop AQlock – the UK’s first commercially available cold atom clock. Cold atom clocks are extremely precise tools which measure time using atoms that have been cooled to almost absolute zero. Atomic frequencies are incredibly stable and consistent, allowing clocks based on them to operate for millions of years without losing a second. AQlock uses a unique laser cooling method known as a super molasses, which does not require an applied magnetic field to trap atoms. This makes the clock more portable and robust than other cold atom clocks, as well as being easier to produce commercially.  Currently, the UK relies almost entirely on a global navigation satellite system (GNSS) for positioning, navigation and timing services. And according to a government report last year, it would cost the UK £7.6 billion if GNSS signals were lost for 7 days. The need to develop a more resilient system has therefore been recognised in the government’s new Framework for …

Jim Banks wins Senate primary, governor’s race too early to call

Jim Banks wins Senate primary, governor’s race too early to call

[ad_1] Indiana Republican Rep. Jim Banks won the state’s GOP Senate primary unopposed Tuesday as he looks poised to win a promotion to statewide office this fall.  Banks was endorsed by former President Donald Trump and a whole host of his would-be Senate Republican peers after GOP Sen. Mike Braun announced he’d run for governor instead of re-election. Banks had been in the middle of a primary against wealthy businessman John Rust. But Rust was kicked off the ballot due to his party affiliation, leaving Banks running in the primary unopposed. He’ll be a favorite in November against psychologist Valerie McCray, the Democratic nominee in a state that hasn’t elected a Democratic senator in more than a decade. Braun, meanwhile, has the early lead in an expensive, multi-way GOP gubernatorial primary. The current governor, Eric Holcomb, is term-limited and can’t run for the office again. Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb, a Republican, has served two terms and can’t run for re-election.Ting Shen / Bloomberg via Getty Images file And competitive GOP primaries are also underway for …

Father sues daughter over co-owned properties worth more than S million, wins suit that ‘split the family’

Father sues daughter over co-owned properties worth more than S$11 million, wins suit that ‘split the family’

[ad_1] EVIDENCE LEANS TOWARDS FATHER’S VERSION Justice Choo noted Mr Lim’s testimony was “without embellishment and without guile”, saying that despite being illiterate, he appeared “forthright” under cross-examination. “I believe him when he said that it was the defendant (Ms Lim) who ‘put her name on the documents herself’,” the judge said, adding that he would have accepted Mr Lim’s evidence that he had bought the properties as investments for himself.  “But I need not rely just on my acceptance of the claimant’s testimony alone. The evidence on the whole incline towards the claimant’s version.” Bringing up the first two disputed properties, which were bought in 2004, Judge Choo said it was “clear to me” that Mr Lim selected and bought them once the terms were acceptable to him.  On Mr Lim not knowing those two properties were purchased under joint names, he highlighted his illiterateness and noted that the “documentation for each property were done only once and thereafter, kept away”. “The claimant had no interest in checking document he could not read and it …

Walker Buehler wins for Dodgers in return from Tommy John surgery

Walker Buehler wins for Dodgers in return from Tommy John surgery

[ad_1] It took all of seven pitches for Dodgers right-hander Walker Buehler to exceed the expectations of manager Dave Roberts, who prefaced Buehler’s first major league start in 23 months Monday night by saying, “I don’t expect to see the 96-97 mph that he had before [Tommy John] surgery.” After completing his warmup pitches with Rage Against the Machine’s “Bulls on Parade” blaring on the Dodger Stadium public-address system, Buehler went into his windup with the signature high leg-kick and fired his first pitch, a 96-mph fastball, by Miami leadoff hitter Jazz Chisholm Jr. for strike one. Buehler hit 97 mph with his seventh pitch of the game, a fastball that Chisholm fouled off, and just for good measure, Buehler touched 97.6 mph with his eighth pitch, which was also fouled off by Chisholm. “It made sense with how amped up I was and how fast my heart was going,” said Buehler, whose fastball sat at 93-94 mph in six minor league rehabilitation starts. “You think about 22 months and now [two elbow] surgeries … …

Tiny Central Coast newsroom Lookout Santa Cruz wins Pulitzer Prize

Tiny Central Coast newsroom Lookout Santa Cruz wins Pulitzer Prize

[ad_1] As legacy publications celebrated their Pulitzer Prize wins Monday, bottles of champagne were also uncorked at Lookout Santa Cruz, a fledgling 10-person newsroom based on the second floor of a former bank on Santa Cruz’s quiet, tree-lined Pacific Avenue. “What a day!” said Ken Doctor, the Lookout’s chief executive and founder. “It’s incredible!” The online news organization won the prize for its breaking news coverage of Santa Cruz County’s catastrophic January 2023 floods. The community-focused organization won out over the Los Angeles Times’ coverage of the fatal Lunar New Year shooting and the Honolulu Civil Beat’s reporting on the Maui wildfires. Doctor said the package submitted to the Pulitzer board included on-the-ground reporting, as well as blogs, newsletters and texts produced for readers as the storms hammered California’s Central Coast, causing landslides, levee failures and widespread destruction. “We supplied not just news and photos and video; we supplied information, that basic information that you need in any kind of crisis,” Doctor said. He believes it was “the full and complete commitment” of the newsroom …
