The plan also ends the Aveson’s three years of frustration with the property, reported Altadenablog.com.According to Bean, Aveson will also be putting up a small café in the building that is open to the public. The cafés operation will be tied to culinary arts, healthy living, and entrepreneurship to teach students how to run a business.To address the problem of a traffic gridlock in the location, Bean said Aveson plans to stagger its opening and closing times with the nearby Odyssey Charter School. Already, Aveson has initiated talks with the California Highway Patrol and Altadena Sheriff’s Station to address the impending traffic problem in the area once the school starts to operate there.Aveson has been on the lookout for a new commercial facility after its decision to expand its services into grades 6-12. The school, which also includes the Aveson School For Leaders (grades K-5), started in the old Noyes school building in East Altadena.The transfer to the commercial building on Altadena Drive and Lincoln Avenue was first approved in 2010 but the previous owner of the property did not pushed through with the construction and the property was put for sale.Currently, Aveson’s grade 6-12 Global Leadership Academy are housed at the Boys and Girls Club, and then to Lincoln Avenue Baptist Church in Pasadena.Fortunately, Bean reported that the new owner of the property pledged to complete its construction in time for fall.

Cricket News Abid Ali enters elite list with century on debut against Australia

first_imghighlights Pakistan are in danger of getting whitewashed 0-5 in the series against Australia.A total of 15 players have scored centuries on ODI debut.Australia has won seven consecutive ODIs. New Delhi: When Abid Ali nudged Nathan Lyon to square leg for a single, Rameez Raja on air announced the ‘arrival of a new star’ in Pakistan cricket. With that single, Abid Ali, the 31-year-old from Lahore entered an elite list of players. Abid became the 15th player overall but the third Pakistan player to score a century on ODI debut. Abid joined Saleem Elahi and Imam-ul-Haq as the other Pakistan players to have achieved this feat. However, despite his wonderful knock and a glorious second century from Mohammad Rizwan, Pakistan suffered a dramatic collapse as they lost by six runs to Australia to trail the five-match series 4-0.Saleem Elahi became the first Pakistan player to achieve the feat when he smashed a century in his debut ODI against Sri Lanka in Gujranwala in 1995. Sri Lanka had made 233/5 with Arjuna Ranatunga scoring a century and Asanka Gurusinha scoring 57. However, Elahi, along with a 77 from Aamer Sohail helped Pakistan secure a nine-wicket win. In 2017, 22 years after Elahi’s feat, Imam-ul-Haq entered the history books by slamming a debut ton against Sri Lanka in Abu Dhabi. Hasan Ali’s 5/34 restricted Sri Lanka to 208 all out and Imam-ul-Haq’s century gave Pakistan a seven-wicket win. Abid Ali is the third player to hit a century on debut against Australia. Dennis Amiss of England scored 103 in the Manchester ODI of 1972 while West Indies’ Desmond Haynes smashed 148 in the Antigua ODI of 1978. Haynes’ score of 148 remains the highest individual score on debut in ODIs.Pakistan were on course to break their ODI rut against Australia in the fourth ODI with Mohammad Rizwan and Abid Ali scoring centuries. However, a sensational collapse of five wickets for 45 runs and the mounting run-rate got Australia back in the contest and they won the Dubai ODI by six runs in Dubai to take a 4-0 lead in the five-match series. This was Australia’s seventh consecutive ODI win and they head into the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as firm favourites. Australia’s total owed much to the batting of Glenn Maxwell but Pakistan will be ruing the fact that they once again buckled under pressure. Abid and Rizwan’s ton, combined with a 144-stand for the third wicket had given Pakistan hope but Australia held their nerve.
