Pests Out Now, Offers Unique Non-Toxic, Non-Invasive, Compassionate Approach to Pest Control

Sisters-Founded and Run Business To Offer First Education Seminar at Capitola Community Center Thursday, August 29th

Monterey, CA, July 20, 2019 – Pests Out Now, which was founded in 2017 by sisters Marilyn and Patricia Smith, is a unique non-toxic, non-invasive and compassionate approach to pest control that doesn’t use toxic aerosol sprays, chemicals, poisonous pellets or traps. The sisters, who both have extensive experience and knowledge in various wellness practices with people, use elevated frequencies of Universal Light to treat significant, life challenges in health and well-being, and now with pest control.

Using techniques developed over many years of experience and instruction, Pests Out Now relocates pests to a neutral area away from your living, work or backyard seating areas. These critters, no longer pests, live independently in harmony with nature in a location that doesn’t interfere with your daily activities, never to return to your home or office.

Results from using this approach have been 100% effective!

The sisters are offering their first education seminar open to the public:

Date: Thursday, August 29th

Location: Capitola Community Center 4400 Jade St, Capitola, CA 95010

Time: 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Cost: Complimentary

Seminar size is limited to 40 attendees

RSVP to: Contact@ Pests Out Now or 831-724-5107

The Seminar will cover topics such as:

Will Pests Out Now Work for me?

How modern science has verified that elevated frequencies of light have a strong effect upon the material world.

How “Universal Light” represents the high frequencies of energy used in their pest-relocation services. Universal Light resonates with all of life, and has a nurturing quality that is very attractive. Humans, plants, animals — even pests — are drawn to the light’s nourishing properties.

How when Universal Light is directed to an area, pests move to this area and make it their abode. The healing quality of Universal Light draws them in, and welcomes them to their new home. Their home is pleasant, and they are quite content to remain there — except under conditions that may disrupt their home, such as flooding, digging up the ground, or changing

About Marilyn and Patricia Smith

Sisters Marilyn and Patricia Smith were born and raised in Watsonville, California. After high school their paths diverged, Patricia attended the University of Oregon Health Sciences Center, Portland Oregon, while Marilyn attended the College of Notre Dame in Belmont, as well as St. Mary’s in Moraga, both in California.

Marilyn became an educator, including as a Resource Specialist Program teacher and school administrator. Patricia worked as a registered nurse and hospital administrator, as well as stints with Amnesty International and as a healer in India for four years.

About 17 years ago both discovered the teachings and methods of Master Zhi Gang Sha, both becoming, after intensive training and instruction, Master Teachers. Marilyn is working full-time as a Master Teacher, traveling to other states and countries to do consultations, teach and train. She is also the author of the book “Gratitude: A Key to Happiness,” and narrated Master Sha’s audiobooks “Soul Communication.” and “ Soul Wisdom”

Patricia, after years in nursing and the medical profession, met Master Sha in 2001, training intensively with him, also becoming a Master Teacher as well as opening her own chronic pain and healing consulting service, Patricia Smith Consulting. One of the catalysts for this, prior to meeting Master Sha, was healing from a server injury using Qigong a holistic system of coordinated body posture, movement, breathing, and meditation used for health, healing and spirituality.

Their career paths converged with Master Sha and now with Pests Out Now, which follows the teachings of Master Sha’s teachings including helping people, reconnecting people with their souls and aligning of the soul, heart, mind and body, to uplift every aspect of life.

Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History sponsors special 6-day Monarch Migration tour to Mexico

Among the many miracles of nature, it’s difficult to match the marvelous and mystifying migration of the monarch butterfly.

Pacific Grove, CA, July 17, 2019 – Among the many miracles of nature, it’s difficult to match the marvelous and mystifying migration of the monarch butterfly.

Recognized by their vivid, orange-and-black wings, these slight insects (weighing less than a dime) are better known for an instinctive internal compass that guides them on an ancestral migration from the shores of Pacific Grove to central Mexico and back.

To honor this well-traveled butterfly (Danaus plexippus) more appropriately called “wanderer,” the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History invites the public to follow this remarkable path on a six-day trip to Mexico from Feb. 8-13, 2020.

Stand amid the fir-covered mountains and witness an awe-inspiring spectacle firsthand as the well-traveled monarchs flutter, dip and swoop overhead. Participants will see countless millions on the roost in the early morning, as well as in flight at midday, feeding on wildflowers and watering at streams.

Program highlights:

• Hike or ride horseback to two monarch sanctuaries, where the butterflies finish their 2,000-mile journey, flying up to 100 miles a day at heights of 10,000 feet.

• Spend time exploring the colonial town of Angangueo in far eastern Mexican state of Michoacán, home of the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve.

• Explore the pyramids of Teotihuacaìn, one of the most architecturally significant Mesoamerican sites of pre- Columbian times.

• Visit Mexico City’s Zoìcalo, the heartbeat of the city and one of the largest squares in the world, along with the historic Metropolitan Cathedral.

• This interactive experience includes: expert naturalist guide; accommodations; activities and entrance fees; in-country transportation; meals and beverages; carbon offsetting; donation to Pacific Grove Museum; and departure tax.

Cost for this life-changing trip is $2,065, and does not include international airfare, gratuities or items of a personal nature.

I saw two wonders on our trip to Mexico. One wonder was the tens of millions of butterflies that we saw. The numbers were staggering. It’s hard to find words to describe what we saw. The other wonder was seeing firsthand how the local community protects the butterflies and the environment where the monarchs overwinter. Mexico City and the ruins were great, too! — Craig Noke, previous participant

El Pájaro Community Development Corporation Marks 40 years of Providing Equal access to Opportunities for Small business Owners

In 1979, Watsonville became the epicenter of social change as the community rallied to support Latino and Spanish-speaking business owners.

Watsonville, CA, July 11, 2019 – In 1979, Watsonville became the epicenter of social change as the community rallied to support Latino and Spanish-speaking business owners.

Protecting rights and providing equal access to business opportunities helped provide a voice to the voiceless, while giving rise to El Pájaro Community Development Corporation.

El Pájaro CDC celebrates 40 years of transforming people’s lives through entrepreneurship by taking the confusion, guesswork and complexity out of starting small businesses. By offering technical, legal, financial and managerial assistance, El Pájaro CDC has helped launch and nurture countless small businesses while bolstering economic development within the community.

“If you give someone an opportunity in can change lives, and lead to generations of success,” said Carmel Hererra, executive director of El Pajaro CDC. “To see a journey from farmworker to entrepreneur — many started that way when they came to us — is so rewarding.”

El Pájaro CDC also offers low-cost and free bilingual business education and training workshops to low-income entrepreneurs. Workshops cover business plan preparation, marketing and sales, customer service, bookkeeping, computer basics, business management, and financial literacy.

The growth of El Pájaro CDC has been monumental. In 1997, it created a retail business incubator at 23 Beach St. in downtown Watsonville to assist low- to moderate-income, Spanish-speaking entrepreneurs with starting and operating a successful business. Named Plaza Vigil, the incubator houses dozens of businesses, with another 44 food purveyors using the separate Commercial Kitchen Incubator Program, a fully equipped, shared-use facility at 412 Riverside Drive. By using the commercial kitchen services, local food entrepreneurs can save the costs of restaurant-grade equipment and county licenses that can restrict their ability to start or expand food businesses.

In 1999, El Pájaro CDC board decided to expand its mission to include housing development. El Pájaro CDC was one of three partners that developed Northgate Apartments in Watsonville, an 84-unit, affordable housing complex for families of 4-7 members.

Following a charter expansion in 2007, El Pájaro CDC now serves Santa Cruz, Monterey and San Benito counties, and is available to anyone with plans to open a small business. While many businesses helped by El Pájaro CDC are food and produce-related, all business concepts — lawyers, mechanics, contractors, small farmers, landscapers, musicians and more — are eligible for assistance.

To celebrate its 40th anniversary, El Pájaro CDC will hold a special Tacos and Tapas event on Thursday, Aug. 29 (6-9 p.m.) at the organization’s Commercial Kitchen Incubator at 412 Riverside Drive in Watsonville.

“It’s a celebration of a very strong legacy of passion for helping the community,” Hererra said. “We’re grateful for everyone who has played a role in helping us grow.”

As El Pajaro CDC looks back proudly on 40 years, it still looks forward to the future, including a handful of projects planned for the next two years, including:

● A kitchen retail store at Plaza Vigil Incubator named Food Artezano, offering food products created in the kitchen incubator, as well as local art, including painting and sculpture, ceramics, T-shirts, postcards and jewelry. It will also include an online store.

● A 5,000-square-foot, small-batch, co-packing facility at the kitchen incubator, allowing food businesses to expand their business and markets.

● A new microloan program that will give small businesses more control, better access and expanded loan opportunities.

● Improved programs to help entrepreneurs manage their financing, credit, record-keeping and more.

Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History hosts innovative leaders of Think Beyond Plastic as part of its Hardcore Natural History series

Thinking beyond plastic represents one of the most daunting challenges we face in our efforts to protect the health of a planet in peril.

Pacific Grove, CA, July 11, 2019 – Thinking beyond plastic represents one of the most daunting challenges we face in our efforts to protect the health of a planet in peril.

On Thursday, July 18, the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History will host two leaders of a global multidisciplinary effort to identify and commercialize upstream innovations that eliminate plastic pollution.

Daniella Russo and Greg Baxter, co-founders of Think Beyond Plastic, will discuss their work with local agricultural supply chains as part of the museum’s Hardcore Natural History Series.

Called “The Plastic Link in the Agriculture Supply Chain,” the talk takes place from 6:30-8 p.m. Available through the museum website at www.pgmuseum.org, tickets are $5 for members, $10 for nonmembers and $15 at the door.

To ensure a rich pipeline of innovation, Think Beyond Plastic is building an “innovation ecosystem” that connects industry, investors and innovators. To support this ecosystem, Think Beyond Plastic operates an innovation center with a network of regional user facilities for design, testing, characterization and prototyping across the planet, as well as the International Space Station.

Russo and Baxter believe that intractable environmental challenges can be addressed by harnessing the forces of innovation and entrepreneurship, and the power of the markets to do good.

Russo is an associate professor at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies graduate program in International Policy and Management. She serves on the board of numerous NGOs and businesses. Russo has started and run numerous high-tech businesses, and her experience includes executive management from start-up phase through an IPO (such as Frame Technology, Infoseek and others), as well as Fortune-500 companies (Sun Microsystems, and Xerox PARC).

Baxter is a former program director with the Division of Industrial Innovation and Partnerships at the National Science Foundation, the world’s largest early-stage investment vehicle for startup companies. The program’s mission is to transform scientific discovery into societal and economic benefit by catalyzing private sector commercialization of technological innovations. He is a longtime mentor and member of the Founders Board of Advisors at StartX Stanford Student Startup Accelerator and was a fellow with the Innovation Accelerator, a public private partnership with the National Science Foundation to facilitate the commercialization efforts of small businesses.
