http://www.soundbitela.com/ SoundBite Studios is an oasis in the heart of Los Angeles that allows musicians an escape to get inspired in a chill, relaxing atmosphere that stimulates their creativity. Each of our rehearsal rooms has its own distinct feel and appeal. Starting at $16 /hr, we offer the lowest rates in Los Angeles. Each room is equipped with a full backline and a PA with enough power to let the whole neighborhood know what's up. Our bigger rooms even have couches so you can take a breather and relax or work on some lyrics. In such a vastly extending city it can sometimes be hard to get away from the bustle of it all. At SoundBite, it's our priority that at our rehearsal spot, your only concern is finding time to reserve another session with us. With low, atmospheric lighting and lots of comfortable couches, our facilities are a place to not only play and write music, but to meet and and be inspired by others in the SoundBite community, maybe even over a game of pool in our sweet Chapel Room. Whatever it is, let us know. We're in this business for you.
http://www.kenmarrescue.org/ Many owners mistakenly take their pets to shelters because they believe that good homes will be found for all of them. Occasionally that's true, but too often owner-surrendered pets are kept only two to four days due to lack of shelter space. Strays usually are kept for three to five days before they are euthanized. When we rescue a dog, each receives a personality and behavioral evaluation and the care, training and TLC it needs and deserves. We work hard to find the proper homes for all of our pets, and stand behind them and their new owners for the rest of the pet's life. Many of Ken-Mar Rescue's dogs need-and receive-veterinary care. From nail trims to extensive surgery, Ken-Mar Rescue provides all needed care to all of our dogs. Not surprisingly, our monthly veterinary bills are overwhelming. Your tax deductible donations are desperately needed to help us save and care for as many dogs as possible. Our ultimate goal is to become obsolete, but until that utopian day arrives when animal shelters can be safe places of refuge, we will strive to give a future to as many needy pets as possible.

Under the leadership of Joel Jacinto, Barbara Ele and Ave Jacinto, Kayamanan is committed to presenting, promoting and preserving the richness and diversity of Philippine culture through dance and music, to educate, entertain and enlighten. Kayamanan's artistic approach is based on anthropological research, resulting in a strong and appropriate translation between traditional folk and folkloric Philippine dance and music forms and styles - from the village to the stage. Noted for its extensive dance repertoire, costumes and music ensembles. Kayamanan has received numerous accolades including L.A. Times' description of one of the group's concert as " ...consistently exciting and a triumph of enlightened cultural preservation."
