San Diego Home/Garden Lifestyles Magazine: Advice for hosting Thanksgiving

  SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Dani Blasena, founder, creative director and lead designer at HauteFêtes, a company that specializes in event design, gives tips for hosting Thanksgiving outdoors this year. 1. Choose muted shades that blend seamlessly with the garden instead of the typical orange, yellow and reds we associate with the holiday. Dani likes pale blues, pinks, greens, creams and coppers. 2. Dani moved her antique table from the dining room to her olive tree grove and rented Scandinavian-inspired chairs to make it feel a bit more modern. “We wanted the event to feel like a fine-dining experience in the yard,” Dani says. “The existing patio furniture feels heavier and more casual; we wanted to elevate the experience.” 3. Coppery ranunculus, pink amaryllis, and shades of pink sweet peas, bunny tails and smoke bushes—all textures that mimicked the existing landscape—create a centerpiece (and bud-vase arrangements) designed by Plenty of Petals. 4. Dani used wooden chargers and ceramic plates and bowls to add a clean-lined element to the tabletop. “Everyone should have a few good staples on hand for entertaining,” Dani explains. “You should have…

San Diego Ranked Fourth-Best City for Singles in U.S.

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – San Diego is the fourth-best city in the country for single people, according to a ranked list released Tuesday by the personal finance website WalletHub. WalletHub analyzed 182 cities across the country, looking at the 150 most populous cities and at least two cities from each state to compile the list. The website ranked each city after considering economic factors such as meal costs and housing affordability, recreational activities per capita and dating opportunities in each city. San Diego and the third-highest city, San Francisco, lagged behind the top two cities for singles, Atlanta and Denver, in terms of affordability but scored roughly the same or higher than both cities for recreational activities and opportunities. All four cities scored high for dating opportunities. Portland, Oregon, rounded out the top five. San Diego also had the highest singles gender balance of any city surveyed, according to WalletHub, leading Denver, San Jose, Fayetteville, North Carolina, and Seattle. Two other San Diego County cities placed on the list: Oceanside at 121 and Chula Vista at 160. Both cities were brought down by their relative…

Supreme Court lets Sandy Hook shooting lawsuit go forward

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court said Tuesday a survivor and relatives of victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting can pursue their lawsuit against the maker of the rifle used to kill 26 people. The justices rejected an appeal from Remington Arms that argued it should be shielded by a 2005 federal law preventing most lawsuits against firearms manufacturers when their products are used in crimes. The court’s order allows the lawsuit filed in Connecticut state court by a survivor and relatives of nine victims who died at the Newtown, Connecticut, school on Dec. 14, 2012 to go forward. The lawsuit says the Madison, North Carolina-based company should never have sold a weapon as dangerous as the Bushmaster AR-15-style rifle to the public. Gunman Adam Lanza used it to kill 20 first graders and six educators. It also alleges Remington targeted younger, at-risk males in marketing and product placement in violent video games. Lanza was 20 years old. “The families are grateful that the Supreme Court upheld precedent and denied Remington’s latest attempt to avoid accountability,” said Joshua Koskoff, a lawyer for the…

Former President Carter out of surgery, no complications

ATLANTA (AP) — Former President Jimmy Carter was recovering Tuesday from surgery to relieve pressure from bleeding on his brain. His spokeswoman said there were no complications from the procedure at Emory University Hospital. Carter will remain in the hospital for observation, said Deanna Congileo, his spokeswoman at the Carter Center. Her statement said the Carters thank everyone for the many well-wishes they have received, and she doesn’t anticipate making more announcements until he’s released. Earlier, she said the procedure was meant to resolve bleeding due to his recent falls. Carter has fallen at least three times this year. The first incident, in the spring, required hip replacement surgery. He hit his head falling again on Oct. 6 and received 14 stitches, but still traveled to Nashville, Tennessee, to help build a Habitat for Humanity home shortly thereafter. And he was briefly hospitalized after fracturing his pelvis on Oct. 21. Carter also received a dire cancer diagnosis in 2015, announcing that melanoma had spread. After partial removal of his liver, treatment for brain lesions, radiation and immunotherapy, he said he was cancer-free. Despite being 95 now and in increasingly…
