Health Care Law Help for Businesses

February 9, 2012
Health Care Law Help for Businesses

The Health Care Law ( the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ) is 2,409 pages long, making it difficult for many businesses with employees to understand all the details within the law. The Health Care Law has just been made easier to understand, thanks to some major California business organizations that joined together to create the Health Law Guide for Business website. To make it simple for employers to know the facts on the law’s business-specific provisions, the website provides accurate and easily understood information about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act . A nonprofit information hub for California businesses, the media and employees, the Health Law Guide for Business was created by California businesses for California businesses. “Small businesses will discover that the most value from using the website will be a greater understanding of the changes in our health care system that have already gone into effect and allow them to plan for those that lie ahead,” said Scott Hauge , president of Small Business California. The project is generously funded by The California Endowment . The website was created by a partnership between the Bay Area Council, CA Hispanic Chambers of Commerce, CA Small Business Development Centers,

Century City

October 31, 2011
Century City

Century City is a 176-acre (712,000-m 2 ) commercial and residential district on the Westside of the City of Los Angeles . It is bounded by Westwood on the west, Rancho Park on the southwest, Cheviot Hills and Beverlywood on the southeast, and the city of Beverly Hills on the northeast. Its major thoroughfares are Santa Monica , Olympic , and Pico Boulevards (its northern boundary, central artery, and southern boundary, respectively), as well as Avenue of the Stars and Century Park East and West. Century City is an important business center, and many law firms and executives — particularly those with ties to the film, television, and music industries — have offices there. —   Neighborhood of Los Angeles — Century City skyline from Santa Monica Boulevard Century City Location within Western Los Angeles Coordinates: 34°03′20″N 118°25′01″W / 34.05556°N 118.41694°W / 34.05556; -118.41694 Country United States State California County Los Angeles City Los Angeles Time zone PST ( UTC-8 ) PDT ( UTC-7 ) Skyscrapers and other important landmarks The high-rise buildings along Wilshire Boulevard in Westwood appear to blend in with those of Century City when seen at a distance, although they are separated by over three-quarters of a mile (1.2 km). Its gleaming high-rises stand in stark contrast to the small apartment buildings and single-family detached homes in the lower-density neighborhoods surrounding it, and were some of the first skyscrapers built in Los Angeles after the lifting of earthquake-related height restrictions in the early 1960s. For many years, it was home to the ABC Entertainment Center, which housed network operations for the ABC Television Network and the Shubert Theater, which hosted many famous Broadway musicals, such as Beauty and the Beast , Les Misérables , Cats , Annie , and Mamma Mia! . The Shubert was demolished in 2002 and became replaced by a modern glass building that houses the headquarters Creative Artists Agency affectionately known as the Death Star , which is part of the complex called Century Park . Some of the most recognized buildings in Century City include: The Century Towers Century Plaza Towers , commonly referred to as the “Twin Towers”. Fox Plaza , 20th Century Fox headquarters most well-known for being Nakatomi Plaza in the movie Die Hard . Constellation Place , (or the MGM Tower ) headquarters of the historic Hollywood studio, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer . Watt Plaza SunAmerica Center Century Plaza Hotel Century City News Aerial view of the Century City neighborhood; Fox Studios still occupies the lower left quadrant Century City Skyline as seen from Runyon Canyon Park . Feb. 19th, 2006 View of the Century City skyline from the Getty Center . Downtown Los Angeles ( Bunker Hill district) can faintly be seen to the east of Century City. Taken December 22, 2004. The Century Plaza Towers The Fox Plaza At the southern end of Century City, Fox Plaza towers over the nearby neighborhoods. History Once a backlot of 20th Century Fox , which still has its headquarters just to the southwest, the Fox studio commissioned a master-plan development from Welton Becket Associates, which was unveiled at a major press event on the “western” backlot in 1957 . In 1961, after Fox suffered a string of expensive flops, culminating in the box-office disaster Cleopatra , the film studio sold about 180 acres (0.73 km 2 ) to developer William Zeckendorf and Aluminum Co. of America, also known as Alcoa . The new owners conceived Century City as “a city within a city.” [1] In 1963 , the first building, Century City Gateway West, was complete, followed the next year by Minoru Yamasaki ‘s Century Plaza Hotel . It originally was planned to be served by the Beverly Hills Freeway (Santa Monica Boulevard to the north) and a rapid transit corridor. However, neither of these transportation improvements came to pass, and so Century City is a source of traffic irritation for the residents of Cheviot Hills to the south, since there is no direct freeway access to the center. It is likely that any westward extension of the Los Angeles MTA ‘s Metro Purple Line subway will include a stop at Century City. Much of the shopping center’s architecture and style is shown off in numerous sequences in the 1967 Fox film, A Guide for the Married Man , and can also be seen in a sequence in another Fox film of the same year, Caprice . The way the plaza looked in 1972 can be viewed in several scenes of still another Fox film, Conquest of the Planet of the Apes . Demographics In 2009, the Los Angeles Times ‘ s “Mapping L.A.” project supplied these Century City statistics: population: 5,513; median household income: $95,135. [2] Economy Northrop Grumman is headquartered in Century City, [3] [4] [5] but on January 4, 2010 announced plans to move to the Washington Metropolitan Area by 2011. [6] Companies with headquarters in Century City include Univision [7] [8] , Crystal Cruises [9] [10] , Creative Artists Agency , Moelis & Co , Canyon Capital Advisors , Ares Management , Imperial Capital, LLC , International Lease Finance Corporation and Korn/Ferry and Greenberg Glusker Fields Claman & Machtinger LLP . [ citation needed ] Government and infrastructure The Los Angeles County Department of Health Services SPA 5 West Area Health Office serves Century City. [11] Emergency services Fire service Los Angeles Fire Department Station 92 is the assigned fire station for the district. [12] Police service Los Angeles Police Department operates the West Los Angeles Community Police Station at 1663 Butler Avenue, 90025, serving the neighborhood. [13] Education The neighborhood is within the Los Angeles Unified School District . [14] Public schools serving it are Westwood Charter Elementary School , Ralph Waldo Emerson Middle School and Webster Middle School. Before fall 2007, students in grades 9 through 12 were assigned to Hamilton High School , but, in that term, LAUSD reassigned Century City’s 9th graders to University High School , and grades 10 through 12 were to be phased into the University High attendance area.
