HELP US CELEBRATE OUR 15TH ANNIVERSARY!


Modernism Week’s signature February festival

will take place February 15-25, 2018, highlighting

midcentury modern architecture, art, interior

and landscape design, and vintage culture in the

Palm Springs area of Southern California. For the

thirteenth year, the annual 11-day festival will

feature a wide array of events including the Palm

Springs Modernism Show & Sale, tours of iconic

homes in more than 23 neighborhoods (including

the Signature Home Tour on both weekends),

architectural walking, biking and double-decker

bus tours, tours of the historic Annenberg Estate at

Sunnylands, classic cars, garden tours, a vintage

travel trailer exhibition, nightly parties and a

special series of talks about Frank Lloyd Wright,

Preservation, and Legendary Women of Design.

All events are open to the public and tickets go

on sale November 1, 2017 at 12 p.m. PST at

modernismweek.com. Attendees will be able to

preview the events on the website without making

purchases starting October 25. A portion of ticket

proceeds benefit Modernism Week (a non-profit

organization) and other local preservation, neighborhood

and community groups. As additional

events are finalized they will be added for sale on

the website on the first of each month.

“Modernism Week continues to expand the scope

and reach of our events and programming,” said

William Kopelk, Modernism Week Board Chairman.

“This year, we will continue that trend by

offering new events and educational opportunities

while still featuring the beloved favorites that our

audience anticipates. We will offer a compelling

combination of educational talks and film screenings,

exciting tours, and activities throughout the

Coachella Valley and beyond. Our returning

Modernism Week attendees will be thrilled with

the selection of appealing new programs.”

Signature Events

One of the highlights of the first weekend includes

the annual Modernism Week Opening Night

Party on Thursday, February 15, presented by

Ferguson Kitchen, Bath & Lighting Gallery. This

chic red carpet affair will be teeming with vintage

style and authentic swagger as attendees channel

their inner Marilyn, Sammy or Hefner, for a

night of entertainment, high style and glamour.

The popular event will take place at the 1962

Indian Canyons Golf Resort, designed by Donald

Wexler and Richard Harrison. The Canyon

Country Club, as it was originally known, has a

legendary history as a favorite spot of Hollywood

icons including Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, Johnny

Carson, Walt Disney and Dean Martin. For the

Opening Party, the club will recall the famous

“After Dark” television series and be transformed

into a swinging club reminiscent of fabulous cocktail

parties from the 1960s. This spectacular evening will

be over the top with expansive indoor and outdoor

lounges, abundant and decadent hors d’oeuvres

provided by Lulu California Bistro, and an open bar

that offers specialty Rat Pack-era cocktails featuring

Hendrick’s Gin. Attendees will dance the night

away to the tunes of retro performer DJ Baz and

a swinging show by The Dreamboats, an upbeat

retro Rock & Roll group, back by popular demand,

courtesy of Corian Design.

New Events

Fans of midcentury-era Hollywood films will enjoy

Hollywood Revisited, a stunning musical revue that

showcases a dazzling lineup of costumes worn

by the stars in original Hollywood films. Set to

the music that defined the times and presented by

top notch Broadway and Hollywood performers,

Hollywood Revisited lets the audience experience

historic costume designs of Hollywood’s Golden

Age.

Participants of the Modernism Week Signature

Home Tour will be able to either drive themselves

on the tour route or upgrade to a new VIP chauffeur

experience in which up to three participants

will be able to ride in a style in Alfa Romeo Stelvio

SUVs and finish the tour with an exclusive private

Midcentury modern places of worship will be

highlighted in two new tours this year. The first

tour, “Sacred Places - Modern Church Tour,” will

feature more than seven houses of worship and

emphasize how the architecture of the structure

was designed to augment the purpose of the

building. Temple Isaiah in Palm Springs will also be

featured in a separate tour entitled

“Architecture in Service of the Sacred and Spiritual”

that contrasts the historic E. Stewart Williams

structure with the 1980’s west-facing addition

designed by David Christian.

For the last few years, Modernism Week has offered

attendees the opportunity to join home tours and architectural

excursions outside of the immediate Palm

Springs area. This successful expansion continues in

2018 with home tours planned in surrounding desert

cities including Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage and

Indian Wells.

Donald Wexler’s classic 1964 Dinah Shore estate

will be open to the public for a special Modernism

Week event called A Night at the Dinah

party, a fundraiser for Save Iconic Architecture,

will feature cocktails and the ability to

explore this architectural gem. Save Iconic

unique and relevant properties in southern

Following the worldwide hit “Paddington,” one of the most

successful family films of all time, this much-anticipated

sequel finds Paddington (Ben Whishaw) happily settled

with the Brown family in London, where he has become

a popular member of the local community, spreading joy

and marmalade wherever he goes.

While searching for the perfect present for his beloved

Aunt Lucy’s hundredth birthday, Paddington sees a

unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber’s antique shop, and

embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it. But when

the book is stolen, it’s up to Paddington and the Browns

to unmask the thief.

2018 ‘WINTER CLASSIC’

TO BENEFIT AAP – FOOD SAMARITANS

27th Annual Softball Tournament Features

LGBT Players, is Free to the Public

Sabastian Reich

PALM SPRINGS – AAP – Food Samaritans (AAP), in

cooperation with the City of Palm Springs and the Palm

Lynda Springs Carter Gay Softball League, announces the 27th Annual

Palm Springs Winter Classic Softball Tournament will take

place February 9 -11, 2018. The teams participating in the

tournament, which benefits AAP, are members of the North

American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance (NAGAAA), a

nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting amateur

athletics for the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender

(LGBT) community.

Registration and a public opening reception will take place

on Friday, February 9, 2018 from 7-10 pm at Hunter’s

Nightclub, 302 East Arenas Road in Palm Springs.

Throughout the weekend, teams will compete on several

locations, including Demuth Park (4365 E. Mesquite Ave,

Palm Springs) and Big League Dreams Sports Park in Cathedral

City. Games will start at 8 a.m. both days with finals

in all divisions played at Big League Dreams. All games

are free to the public. Competition is open to a maximum of

80 teams in various divisions of play, and the tournament

schedule will be posted at pswinterclassic.com.

“This is a fun event for players and spectators, and the fact

that it benefits AAP- Food Samaritans makes it that much

more rewarding for us,” says Vicki Oltean, Tournament

Director. “We hope the public comes out to the opening

reception at Hunter’s on Friday night to meet the athletes,

buy souvenir shirts and support this 26-year tradition of

softball in the desert.”

Sabastian The ‘Winter Skin Classic’ Care was established in 1991 as a fundraising

event to help offset out-of-town tournament travel

expenses for the Desert Heat Softball team members.

Local host hotels have also agreed to donate 10% of that

weekend’s proceeds to AAP. For more information, visit

pswinterclassic.com or call 760-323-8277.

PSA Organica was the first Palm Springs City

approved Recreational Marijuana dispensary.

Sibling owners, Julie and Lenny Montante, have

helped thousands of patients and pets with terminal

illnesses over the twenty years they have been in the

business. PSA continues to be a city approved medical

dispensary. They are very big supporters of many

charities in the Coachella Valley. This January, as

recreational use of marijuana became legal, PSA

Organica opened its door even wider to sell marijuana

to those 21 and over.

Are you wondering how to partake in the new opportunites

for fun and relief? Here are some frequently

asked questions, followed by some therapeutic tips for

the use of CBD Oil.

Frequently Asked Questions about purchasing

Recreational Marijuana

Where may one go to purchase Recreational

Marijuana in Palm Springs?

PSA Organica, at 400 E Sunny Dunes Rd,

Palm Springs, CA 92264 (Between Jack in the

Box on Palm Canyon and Builders Supply on

Sunny Dunes) This was the first and only dispensary

on January first to hold the City of Palm

Springs Recreational license. No cards needed!

Julie and Lenny Montante There is plenty of

parking in the rear.

What are we talking about?

In 1996, California became the first state to

legalize marijuana for medicinal use only. In

November, 2016, the Adult Use of Marijuana

Act (Proposition 64) was passed in California

legalizing the recreational use of marijuana for

adults over the age of 21! As a result of the newfound

recreational legality, adults are allowed to

possess up to one ounce of marijuana at a time,

and cultivate up to 6 plants – as long as they are

out of public view.

When does it officially start?

It officially began this January 1, at 6AM.

What will I need to make a purchase?

You must be 21 or older and have a valid ID-and

your money of course! Cash only.

How does the process and availability

compare between Medical and Recreation?

The law was written with a 6 month grace period.

Within that time, procedures and processes

may change, but for now, all of the same products

will be available to adult recreational use

as well as medical. One of the only differences

will be the taxing of the products. Medical will

most likely have less taxes. Look for changes

in the 6 month period as the process evolves.

Right now it is not completely defined.

What types of marijuana will the stores

sell?

You will see a number of different flower strains

categorized by their strains ranging from strong

Frequently Asked Questions

About Purchasing

Recreational Marijuana

(Continued from the previous page)

Indicas to strong Sativas and everything in between.

Each strain can have different effects so be sure to

ask the budtender for assistance in choosing the best

marijuana for you. Strong Sativa strains are known

for their general uplifting, energizing, and head high

effects while Indicas are known for their full body highs

and sedative effects.

Dispensaries will also sell a number of other types of

marijuana products, including but not limited to:

Concentrates: essential oils of the cannabis plant.

Warning: these can be very potent! Edibles: Cannabis

infused foods, candies, or drinks. Warning: These

can be very potent! Be sure to check the serving size

before enjoying and remember the effects can take up

to an hour to hit you. Transdermal Products (Topicals):

creams, lotions, massage oils and such infused

with cannabis. These products are not psychoactive

and will not get you high. Seeds: seeds that can be

used to grow your own marijuana plants. Stores will

have many different strains of Indicas and Sativas.

Clones: healthy seedlings that are ready be grown.

Adults over the age of 21 are allowed to grow up to 6 plants at a time! With the outrageously

fertile nature of California soil, we would love to pop some seeds in the ground in the

backyard and see what happens! Imagine getting off the beach and tending to your crop of 6

beautiful cannabis plants. Nirvana. One of the few stipulations to this law is that all plants must

be out of sight of the general public, so get a tarp!

If you have any more questions, ask the friendly crew at PSA Organica. They

are excited to serve you. PSA Organica is the place to be for your recreational

How much will it cost?

A: The price of marijuana depends on strain and quality,

but you can expect marijuana prices to be between

$10 and $30 per gram.

How much Marijuana can I buy?

With your California Medical Marijuana Card, you

are allowed to possess 8 ounces of usable cannabis.

Now that the recreational use of marijuana is legal,

you can expect the limit of possession to be up to one

ounce of marijuana flower.

Can I take my purchase home if I live in another

state or country?

The Glass Shop

No. All marijuana and marijuana products purchased

in California must be consumed in California.

Where can I consume my recent purchase?

Legally, you can only consume in a private residence.

However, at many events in California you will see

citizens openly consuming in public as a form of civil

disobedience. California police aren’t known to hassle

you unless you’re being obvious. Our best recommendation

is to use discretion if you choose to smoke

outside of a private residence. Since the Adult Use of

Marijuana Act (AUMA) was passed on the eighth of

November, the amount of people consuming in public

will likely rise, and Palm Springs and other cities will

likely draft outlines about designated smoking public

areas.

The Enormous Therapeutic

Effects of CBD Oil

PAIN

There is another effective use of cannabis

plant, known as cannabidiol abbreviated as

CBD.

What is Cannabidiol (CBD)?

Cannabidiol or CBD does not contain an intoxicated

chemical such as those in tetrahydrocannabinol (TCH)

in marijuana. Cannabidiol has a major phytocannabinoid

that comes from 40% of the plant extract.

Where cannabis has a number of psychoactive effects

such as euphoria and neuron firing reaction on human

brain which people often regard as being “high”,

CBD has enormous therapeutic effects including

anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, antidepressant, anticonvulsant,

antipsychotic and neuroprotective qualities.

What are the benefits of Cannabidiol oil?

According to different researches based on the

use of cannabidiol oil, there are enormous visible

psychological effects on the human brain. CBD helps

in controlling the serotonin- a chemical linked with

mental health. CBD helps managing anxiety, social

wellbeing, reducing stress, pain relief and improving

symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.

anxiety give a speech. To treat chronic pain: CBD oil by mouth up to 2.5 -20 mg for

25 days. To manage sleep disorders: Range of CBD up to 40 -160 mg by mouth. To

increase appetite in cancer patients: 1 mg of CBD for six weeks will show positive

effects. To treat Huntington’s disease: Daily for 6 weeks, CBD by mouth up to 10

mg per kilogram. To manage multiple sclerosis symptoms: The combination of

TCH-CBD by mouth for up to 2.5- 120 mg for 2 -15 weeks. To treat epilepsy: Daily for

up to 4.5 months of 200- 300 mg of CBD by mouth. To treat schizophrenia: Daily for

up to 4 weeks 40- 1,280 mg CBD by mouth. To treat glaucoma: A single dose of CBD

of 20- 40 mg under the tongue. Dose more than 40 mg will increase eye pressure. CBD

dosage according to weight of an individual and severity of the condition.

It is critical how much quantity of CBD dosage you are putting in your system as it can

fluctuate the symptoms.

For better understanding, there is a “best practices” chart at http://how-muchcbd-should-i-take.com/.

The starting point will help you contemplate the doses

yourself or you can consult healthcare professionals for further guidance.

How does CBD work in the human body?

Naturally, our body system contains endocannabinoid

system or ECS which helps to control hemostasis and

hormones to maintain a balance between the basic

body components. These systems regulate the things

like mood, pain perception, motor control, memory,

appetite, sleep, just to cover a few. As we age, the

naturally occurred cannabinoid wears out. However,

by the use of CBD, the physiological system in the

human body can be optimized and replenish working

as normal.

How much CBD oil, a beginner should take?

Cannabis compounds have biphasic properties,

meaning both the low and high doses of the substance

can produce opposite effects in the body. Although,

many researchers contemplated that overdosing on

CBD is not harmfulrather not having enough of the

suggested dose could be bad for your body.

For a startup regime, it is smart to initiate with the low

to moderate dose a day especially if you have little or

no experience with cannabis.

CBD oil dosing

It is important to know that concentration varies at

preparations, ranging from 1 milligram to hundreds of

milligrams per dose. According to Mayo Clinic, it is

suggested that CBD dosage and duration of treatment

highly depend on the diseases. CBD dosage,

oil with respect to diseases. It is rather illegal to

suggest doses. Doses remain subjective and experimental.

To treat social anxiety: According to a

study, 600 mg dose of CBD helped people with social

LIVING LIFE HIGH ON THE HOG

The Man Behind Porky Pig!Emmy

Nominated Actor Comes to Camelot Theatre

for Benefit Performance

By Mallory Rose

What do Porky Pig, Tweety Bird, Marvin

the Martian and Luke Skywalker all have

in common? Bob Bergen. That’s right! This

two-time Emmy nominated actor is one of

the most successful voice-over artists of our

generation. Yes, Bergen is the voice of all of

these beloved cartoon characters in addition

to a host of other popular characters on

some of the biggest animated projects on

both the big and small screens.

Bergen, The Voice Master, will be featured

in the upcoming On The Air! An Evening

of Radio Show Classic to benefit Dezart

Performs taking place at the Palm Springs

Camelot Theatre on Thursday, March 8th.

This popular event takes the audience back

to the Golden Age of Radio and brings

together a cast of celebrity performers

who recreate, on stage, some of radio’s

funniest and most memorable shows from

the 1940s and 50s. Complete with vintage

microphones, “on the air” and “applause”

signs, the actors, musicians and sound

effects crew will provide an unforgettable

evening of uproarious entertainment.

While participating in a previous On The Air!

performance, Bergen dazzled the audience

with an episode of Richard Diamond: Private

Detective as well as an original piece written

for Bergen’s Porky Pig. When asked what

classic radio shows will be featured this

year, Bergen explains, “Well, they’ve not

yet told me what scripts we are doing. But if

it’s anything like the last time I did this, and

I’m sure it will be, it’s going to be a blast!

We dress the part. They have an authentic

sound effects person with all the bells and

whistles of a classic radio show.”

Additional talent joining Bergen on stage

include Valorie Armstrong, Joyce Bulifant,

Bob Hardt, Millicent Martin, Sal Mistretta,

Roger Perry, Melinda Peterson, Phil Proctor,

Fred Willard, Francesca Amari, Darci

Daniels, Jaci Davis, Jea Lewis, Andrea

McGuire, Jeff Stover, Shelley Yoelin, and

Barney McClure.

A veteran of hundreds of voiceover projects

such as Minions, Sing, Despicable Me

3, Wreck It Ralph, The Secret Life of Pets,

Trolls, Tangled, Cars, A Bug’s Life, WALL-E,

Monsters Inc., Iron Giant, The Emperor’s

New Groove, Star Wars and more, Bergen

knew he had a calling at the early age of

5 when he told his mother that he wanted

to be the voice of Porky Pig. His mother

responded with “You can’t be Porky Pig.

You’re Jewish.”

Never one to be discouraged, at the age

of 14, he scoured all the Los Angeles

area phone books in search of the iconic

voiceover artist, Mel Blanc. He eventually

found Blanc’s wife’s name and number and

called the legendary artist. Blanc gave

Bergen solid advice and thought he had

heard the last of the young lad, but Bergen

had other ideas. Bergen recalled Blank

telling him that he had a recording session

at a studio the next week and the eager teen

managed to talk his way into the recording

session by telling the secretary that he was

a guest of Blanc and then by telling Blanc

that he was the guest of the secretary! The

two talents eventually became friends and

colleagues and of course Bergen eventually

took over as this generation’s voice of

Blanc’s famous Porky Pig. This coming

March marks the 28th anniversary since

Bergen first voiced the Warner Brothers and

Looney Tunes uber-famous pig.

“Right now we are recording Season 3 of

the New Looney Tunes. I also just worked


on a super cool new animated series”, says

Bergen, “but I also signed a super NDA, so

I can’t talk about it. Often we cannot talk

about current work until it is released. But

I’m busy, even if I can’t talk much about it.”

And busy he is. When not working in the

studio, Bergen himself teaches voice over

in Los Angeles to up and coming talent and

established actors looking to get into voice

over work. It is his love for teaching that, in

the past, had brought him to Palm Springs.

He says, “There used to be a voiceover

school in Palm Springs called Voicetrax.

I would come in and teach weekend

animation voiceover classes a few times a

year. They closed down a while back.”

When asked to pick some of his favorite

career highlights, Bergen offered, “Well,

certainly booking Porky Pig the first time, as

that was a dream since I was a kid. One

of my first major films was Gremlins, which

was a pretty cool early gig and it was a

Spielberg produced movie and directed

by Joe Dante. My two Emmy nominations

were thrills. They come with month long

parties and receptions. Guys have it easy!

We just wear the same tux over and over

and year after year. But that red carpet is

pretty surreal.” Bergen was nominated for

an Emmy in 2011 and again in 2013 for

Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for

his work on television’s The Looney Tunes

Show now available on the Boomerang

Cable Network.

Bergen has had the privilege of working

with many big stars but he explains, that

with animation, even though their names

appear alongside each other, they don’t

often work together in the studio. “Ya know,

when you do animation for features, for the

most part you work solo. So even though

I’ve worked on films with the likes of Tom

Hanks and Ellen DeGeneres, we’ve never

actually been in the studio at the same time.

It’s hard to coordinate everyone’s busy

schedule. It’s actually a bummer. I’m not

just a fan of so many who’ve worked with

me on the same films, but as an actor, it’s

always better to be able to work off each

other.”

Never one to rest, Bergen is also very

active in the Television Academy where

he is currently serving his second term

as Co-Governor for the Performers Peer

Group. His last Co-Governor was comic

legend, Lily Tomlin and current Co-

Governor is veteran character actress,

Patrika Darbo. Bergen considers both

actresses to be friends and this past

November he presented Tomlin with

a prestigious Society of Voice Arts &

Sciences Award at Lincoln Center.

In preparation for his Palm Springs

appearance, Bergen seems to have a

profound love and respect for radio.

I feel I was born 40 years too late. He

says, “I would have loved to have been

a part of the old time radio generation.

Back then, actors really got to stretch their

chops. And there was just so much of it,

from comedy to drama to thrillers. Just so

much fun! And such awesome scripts!”

Bergen is looking forward to visiting

Palm Springs for his upcoming Camelot

Theater performance and what is it that

he likes best about this dynamic Desert

city? The AC!!!!” Bergen quips! ”Also, I

just love the mid century architecture. It’s

like stepping back in time and it’s such a

friendly town and there are always fun

people to talk to while out and about,”

adds Bergen.

This talented guy is living large while

successfully experiencing the dream he

realized at an early age. The next time

you attend an animated movie or watch a

television cartoon, chances are that some

of the voices you hear will be straight

from Bergen’s mouth.

The famous quote from Porky Pig, “That’s

all folks”, does not apply here. We know

that Bob Bergen is not done. He has a lot

more work to do and we look forward to

following him and hearing his famous voices

for many years to come.

March 8th at the Camelot Theatre in On The

Air! An Evening of Radio Show Classics visit:

DESERT DENTAL

ALTERNATIVES

Bruno Lemay, DMD

acid to decalcify the tooth. It is called dental

plaque and it forms very quick after eating.

The better hygiene a person has, the less

they will have decay. It takes both sugar and

plaque to decay a tooth. The more you brush

and floss, the more plaque removed and the

less risk of decay.

Additionally, elderly patients also tend to have

more decay. It is more obvious with elderly

patients who are loosing their dexterity, and

in general they tend to eat more sweets more

often, and not brush as often.

There is also another component that needs

to be explained here. In the mouth there are

several types of bacteria. Some are responsible

for gum disease and some are responsible

for decay. Some people may have the best

hygiene and still have gum disease and some

who have the worst hygiene may not suffer

from gum disease at all. This is because they

do not have the bacteria responsible for gum

disease. Same thing for decay. Some people

will be more susceptible to decay then others

even if they eat just a little sugar and have

decent dental hygiene. That is because they

have that kind of bacteria in their mouth in a

higher rate then another person. But that is

not a reasonable excuse. More brushing

and plaque control with a topical fluoride

application daily, preferably with a special

personal tray made at the dental office will

help.

Very rarely a person will suffer from gum

disease and a high rate of decay. It is

generally one or the other. If someone has

a high rate of decay, in general they will

not suffer from gum disease like bone loss,

periodontal pockets and tooth mobility.

It is a proven fact though, that the better

the dental hygiene you have and the better

your diet is in terms of limiting sugar intake,

the healthier your gums and teeth will be.

So, it is not true that decay affect only

kids. As long as you have one tooth in your

mouth you are subject to get decay if you

leave dental plaque on it and eat sugar!

The best way to prevent that is to have

good dental hygiene at home and brushing

after any sugar intake, and to visit your

dentist 2 to 3 times a year.

Dr. Bruno Lemay

Do you think that dental cavities are

problems only for children?

It is a general belief that cavities are for kids

only. But in fact, cavities affect all ages!

The reason why cavities are more prevalent

in children is mainly the fact that they tend

to eat more sugar and have poor hygiene

habits. However, when looking at the cause

of decay, which is basically plaque with the

presence of sugar, it is easy to understand

that cavities can happen at any age even if

your mouth is full of crowns.

Of course there are some people who have

teeth that are softer then others and are

easier to decay but that affects only 1% of

the population. Basically any diet rich in

sugar will increase your chance of decay.

Soft drinks, candies and anything sweet

will have a potency to create decay in the

presence of dental plaque. Of course in

order to create decay there has to be the

bacteria that will transfer the sugar into

PALM SPRINGS, CA This year’s awards will

shine a bright spotlight on local community

members who’ve dedicated their time, talent

and energy to ensuring Desert AIDS Project

(D.A.P.) is able to provide compassionate care

to those who need it most. We are excited to

by and named for famed interior designer

Steve Chase – a former D.A.P. donor, volunteer,

and board member – the gala is a highlight of

the desert social season and preceded the night

prior by an exclusive VIP pre-party honoring

major donors and celebrity guests.

other fundraising events, Desert AIDS Project ensures

that newly-diagnosed HIV positive patients

receive the medications they need to survive and

thrive, and regular follow-ups to safeguard their

well-being. D.A.P.’s Patient Assistance Program

secures critical HIV and other medications at

reduced cost.

Dr. Shubha Kerka

In her early career at D.A.P., when AIDS was a

death-sentence, she worked toward setting up

an HIV/ AIDS Health Center at DRMC, to care

for D.A.P. clients who needed hospitalization

and hospice care. With modern medicine, her

practice has evolved into skilled management

for many of these clients, allowing them to lead

healthy, productive lives. She is also involved

with research into newer medicines; those able

to cure infections such as Hepatitis C.

Dr. Kerkar is Board Certified in Infectious Diseases

and for 12 years has maintained certification and

credentialing by the American Academy of HIV

Medicine (AAHIVS). She has been nominated as

the Top Doctor in Infectious Diseases by Castle

Connelly Survey every year since 2005 and has

received multiple Palm Springs Life Top Doctor

Awards in the Specialty of Infectious Diseases. Dr.

Kerkar is on active staff at Desert Regional Medical

Center and Eisenhower Medical Center.

Co-chairs Patrick Jordan and Lauri Kibby will

join Senator Barbara Boxer on February 10

when they welcome more than 1,500 D.A.P.

supporters at the 2018 Steve Chase Humanitarian

Awards benefiting Desert AIDS Project. The

party begins with red carpet arrivals LIVE on

KMIR and KESQ at the Palm Springs Convention

Center at 5:30pm. A new red carpet fashion

experience will feature Palm Springs Fashion Editor,

Susan Stein, Ethylina Canne, and Salvador

Camarena. The awards kick off at 7:00 PM and

will feature En Vogue as headline entertainment

and Thelma Houston at the after-party.

Powerful momentum is now building towards

a new narrative on HIV treatment and a new,

final, ambitious, but achievable target: 90-90-

90: Treatment for All

By 2020, 90% of all people living with HIV will

know their HIV status.

People can carry the HIV virus for years and not

know it. The only way to know if you have HIV

is to get tested. Your support enables D.A.P.’s

Get Tested Coachella Valley program to provide

free and confidential HIV testing at hundreds of

community events and dozens of test sites – from

By 2020, 90% of all people receiving antiretroviral

therapy will have viral suppression. To

suppress the virus to an undetectable level, an

individual must start on medication as early as

possible and stay on it for a lifetime. This can be

challenging when facing other serious challenges.

That’s the driving force behind D.A.P.

Total Care – the comprehensive combination of

health and wellness services which are uniquely

tailored to each individual – including medical,

dental, mental health, social services, support

groups, substance abuse counseling, and much

more – all conveniently provided under one roof

at D.A.P.’s Palm Springs location.

Following the worldwide hit “Paddington,” one of the

most successful family films of all time, this much-anticipated

sequel finds Paddington (Ben Whishaw) happily

settled with the Brown family in London, where he has

become a popular member of the local community,

spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes.

While searching for the perfect present for his beloved

Aunt Lucy’s hundredth birthday, Paddington sees a

unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber’s antique shop, and

embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it. But when

the book is stolen, it’s up to Paddington and the Browns

to unmask the thief.

Reuniting many of the original film’s cast while welcoming

those in new roles, “Paddington 2” stars Golden

Globe nominee Hugh Bonneville (“Downton Abbey”),

Oscar nominee Sally Hawkins (“Blue Jasmine”), threetime

Golden Globe nominee Brendan Gleeson (“The

Guard,” “Into the Storm,” “In Bruges”), Oscar nominee

Julie Walters (“Billy Elliot,” “Educating Rita”), Oscar

winner Jim Broadbent (“Iris”), and Oscar winner Peter

Capaldi (short, “Franz Kafka’s It’s a Wonderful Life”),

with Golden Globe and BAFTA Award winner Hugh

Grant (“Four Weddings and a Funeral”), and BAFTA

winner Ben Whishaw (“The Hollow Crown”) as the

voice of Paddington. The starring ensemble also includes

Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, and Oscar

nominee Imelda Staunton (“Vera Drake”) as the voice of

Aunt Lucy.

Paddington’s return to the big screen was again helmed

by BAFTA-nominated director Paul King (“Paddington,”

“Come Fly with Me,” “The Mighty Boosh”) from a script

written by King and Simon Farnaby (Sky TV’s “Yonderland,”

“Mindhorn”), based on the best-selling and internationally

adored books by Michael Bond, creator

of Paddington Bear.

The film was produced by multiple award-winning

producer David Heyman (the “Harry Potter” films,

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” Oscar

nominee for “Gravity”). Serving as executive producers

were Rosie Alison, Jeffrey Clifford, Alexandra

Ferguson Derbyshire, Ron Halpern, and Didier

Lupfer.

Creative talent returning behind the camera included

director of photography Erik Alexander Wilson

(“Tyrannosaur,” “Submarine”), production designer

Gary Williamson (“Bunny and the Bull,” “Submarine”),

Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy

Hemming (“Wonder Woman,” “The Dark Knight”),

and editor Mark Everson (“Mindhorn,” “Alan Partridge”),

joined by editor Jonathan Amos (“Baby

Driver”). Visual effects were provided by the highly

acclaimed British VFX company, Framestore, led by

animation director Pablo Grillo (“Fantastic Beasts

and Where to Find Them”) and VFX supervisors

Andy Kind (“Gravity”) and Glen Pratt (“Beauty and

the Beast”). The score is composed by Academy

Award winner Dario Marianelli (“Atonement”).

“Paddington 2” was shot on location in and around

central London, as well as on the legendary soundstages

of Warner Bros. Leavesden and Pinewood

film studios.

Warner Bros. Pictures and STUDIOCANAL present,

in association with Anton Capital Entertainment

S.C.A., a Heyday Films Production, “Paddington

2.” The film will be distributed by Warner Bros.

Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

“Paddington 2” is rated PG for some action and

mild rude humor.
