The week-long camps led by Code Senseis® (instructors), guide kids through a variety of challenges and activities including building their own video games and an actual robot. Half and full-day camps are available through August 3. Pricing may vary.

 

For parents and children interested in learning more, Code Ninjas is offering free one-on-one sessions with a Code Sensei. Each 30-minute session includes an assessment by a Code Sensei. Based on availability.

 

“Our one-on-one sessions can help kids and parents explore new programs and learn about our game-based, martial arts inspired curriculum,” says Don Kang, owner and director of Code Ninjas Summerlin. “Through these sessions, we have the opportunity to share that our programs are inclusive, effective and prepare kids for a future in technology.”

 

In keeping with their commitment to provide a safe environment, Code Ninjas has implemented the following health and safety measures; reduced room capacities to allow for social distancing, increased regularity of sanitation of high traffic areas and equipment, face coverings required for all employees and visitors and hand sanitation stations are available throughout both locations.

Fashion Show teams up with the Mask Task Force powered by the Las Vegas Fashion Council on National Nurses Day

 

“Our thoughts are with all those in Southern Nevada dealing with the health impacts related to the coronavirus, especially our first responders and front-line workers,” said Brent Gardner, general manager of Fashion Show Las Vegas. “Through our donation, in partnership with the Las Vegas Fashion Council and local designer Larissa Navarro, we hope that our donation can help the local Las Vegas community in the fight against the pandemic.”

 

Navarro has provided nearly 5000 face masks and face coverings to date, producing from 150 up to 300 masks per day. Each mask is made of 100% woven cotton and are machine washable, as well as CDC approved.

 

The Mask Task Force powered by Las Vegas Fashion Council was assembled due to the dire news of the mask shortage, amongst other items, to fight the COVID-19 crisis and support our front line medical and health workers, senior centers, food banks, CCSD food distribution volunteers and more. The Mask Task Force has donated over 4000 masks to the Las Vegas community due to generous support of volunteers and sponsors similar to Fashion Show Las Vegas.

Las Vegas-Clark County Library District Foundation’s Annual Summer Book Sale Offers Treasures To Discover At Bargain Prices

 

LAS VEGAS-CLARK COUNTY LIBRARY DISTRICT FOUNDATION’S
ANNUAL SUMMER BOOK SALE
OFFERS TREASURES TO DISCOVER AT BARGAIN PRICES
Shoppers will find thousands of Books, eBooks, DVD’s, CD’s, LP’s and more!

 

For lovers of packaged entertainment in all forms, the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District Foundation’s Big Summer Book Sale is not to be missed. One of the best sales of the summer, this is your chance to stock up on summer reading, movies, music, and those unexpected treasures you might find in the stacks.

 

The sale will be held on July 5 and July 6 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and on July 7 from 10 a.m.  to 2 p.m. at the Sahara West Library located at 9600 West Sahara Avenue.

 

Books and materials are divided up into categories as follows: cookbooks, health, history, textbooks, autobiography, sports, travel, law, computer, art, music, self-help, diet, science, fiction, non-fiction, romance, teens and kids’ books, as well as DVDs, CDs, and LPs.

 

“We receive thousands of wonderful donations from the community,” Keiba Crear, president of the Library District Foundation, said. “This includes donations from people who are downsizing to smaller homes, estate book collections, public agencies such as consulates, and a local doctor who drops off beautiful new tabletop art books every month. We have a number of book sales throughout the year but our summer sale is by far our largest.”

 

Members of the public are sure to find amazing treasures and bargains galore on books, DVDs, CDs, LPs, and more, with some items discounted as low as 50 cents. All proceeds and donations go to fund new resources and priority projects for the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District and Foundation, such as Teacher Tutors, Teen Tech Labs, and the new Nevada CareerExplorer.

 

According to Dr. Ronald R. Heezen, executive director of the Library District, the sale has long been a favorite of book collectors.

 

“You never know when a first edition, special collection, or signed author’s copy may pop up unexpectedly,” Dr. Heezen said. “Last year, one lucky customer discovered a signed copy of ‘Fortunately, The Milk’ by Neil Gaiman an award-winning British author. Gaiman is noteworthy as he is the first author to win both the Newberry Medal and the Carnegie Medal for the same work. The customer gasped when she found it and everyone around her said she had won the lottery!”

 

The Library District Foundation sponsors several other book sales during the year, including:

 

  • The Teacher’s Book Sale on Saturday, August 4 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Clark County Library, where teachers receive deep discounts in order to stock their shelves for the coming school year.

  • Sahara West Winter Sale on December 6, 7, and 8 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., for the book DVDs, CDs, and LPs lovers on your gift list!

Book sales are free and open to the public, but be sure to stop by the customer service desk to obtain your free library card, and unlock a world of discovery!

A few months ago, we shared our experience taking a new hot yoga class that made us move in new and unpredictable ways called Revitalize, which was created by one of Las Vegas’ most popular teachers, Mark Balfe-Taylor. Mark has been teaching yoga and teaching yoga teachers for many years and is known for his unique, educational and motivational style, as well as his charming British accent. Since he’s the creator of Revitalize, which was mentioned in the Yoga Journal, and several other equally loved contemporary hot yoga sequences, it’s not a shocker that Mark has opened his own business called Hot Yoga Revitalized and has a new home studio at the premier place for teachers in town – Sherry Goldstein’s Yoga Sanctuary. Mark is teaching several classes at both Sanctuary locations and some have a special promotional price of only $10! Definitely something we will be checking out! In addition to Revitalize, Mark will be teaching his signature yin class that has people following him to parks around the city for a free class. Did we mention he is doing free yoga in the park too! If you live in Centennial Hills, Summerlin or the Southwest area, be sure to check one of these classes out. But even more exciting, Mark and the team at Hot Yoga Revitalized are planning several teacher trainings in the coming year. They have E-RYT 200 yoga trainings planned for Mexico and Australia at the beginning of the year, and later next year a yoga retreat in Panama where you can enjoy two classes a day while surrounded by a tropical paradise. Mark says he picked Panama because it’s a hidden gem and airline tickets are surprisingly cheap. Good thinking, Mark. We are already dreaming of sun salutations on the beach.

Be sure to check out Mark’s new site, HotYogaRevitalized.com to learn when he is teaching at The Yoga Sanctuary, in the park and when his hot yoga teacher trainings are planned.
