Remember, if you do leave pets 
unattended in your vehicles, 
it is now lawful for persons to 
forcibly open your car to rescue 

Make sure your pets also have 
easy access to water and a cool 
place to stay.

Keep air conditioners set to 
about 78 degrees.

Close blinds and drapes to block 
out direct heat. Use energy 
efficient fans as alternative.

Use major appliances in early 
morning or after 7 p.m., when 
energy demand is lower.

Turn off lights, air conditioners, 
computers, TVs and other 
electronics when not in use.

Set refrigerator to 37 degrees, 
clean coils regularly & unplug 
unused secondary fridges.

Air quality can easily degrade 
during hot weather. If you have 
heart disease, asthma or other 
lung disease, minimize outdoor 
activity to reduce heat-related 

Symptoms of dehydration and 
heat cramps include dizziness, 
fatigue, faintness, headaches, 
muscle cramps and increased 

Wear light and light-colored, 
loose-fitting clothing.

Drink water often. Do not wait 
until you are thirsty.

Avoid, reduce unnecessary 
exertion or vigorous exercise, 
whether outside or in a non-

 Principal Pops Conductor 
Michael Feinstein puts down 
the conducting baton and 
picks up the microphone for 
one night only for Summer 
of Love on Saturday, July 21 
at the Los Angeles County 
Arboretum. Spend an evening 
with the Pasadena POPS, led 
by Resident Pops Conductor 
Larry Blank, as Michael 
Feinstein Sings the Hits of the 
`60s. As you know, it wasn’t all 
Woodstock! The ‘60s were cool 
with the stylish stylings of Mod 
and the Mad Men era. Taking 
on everything from the Doors 
to Sinatra to Tom Jones, the 
multi-platinum-selling, Emmy 
and Grammy-nominated 
Feinstein defines the sounds 
of the ultimate decade for this 
exclusive engagement with the 
Pasadena POPS.

 An old-fashioned crooner 
with luxuriant vocals that meld 
the traditions of old and new, 
Feinstein has been dubbed 
the “Ambassador of the Great 
American Songbook” for his 
preserving, presenting, and 
interpreting of that seminal 
body of work. For this swingin’ 
night under the stars, Feinstein 
has curated an evening of songs 
that encompass the wide-
ranging scope of the Sixties 
hit parade with Light My 
Fire, It Had to Be You, Moon 
River, For Once in My Life, 
It’s Not Unusual and much 
more. Says Feinstein, “This 
amalgam of Mad Men, the pop 
psychedelic era, and Broadway 
is challenging to encapsulate in 
one concert, but that is going 
to be the joy, especially having 
the latitude to create all of 
those sounds with a symphony 

 All Pasadena POPS concerts 
are held at the Los Angeles 
County Arboretum and 
Botanic Garden. Grounds 
open for picnicking and dining 
at 5:30pm and performances 
begin at 7:30pm. Don’t miss 
the best outdoor dinner party 
in town with spacious circular 
table seating with fine linens, 
or lawn seating for those 
who want to bring a blanket 
- each option carries on the 
tradition of picnic-dining 
with your family and friends 
with Pasadena’s premier POPS 
orchestra! Among many venue 
amenities, concert goers can 
enjoy pre-ordered gourmet 
dining packages for on-site 
pickup just steps from their 
table from Julienne, Marston’s 
and Claud & Co. The venue also 
hosts mouth-watering food 
trucks and the convenience 
of two full beverage centers 
serving fine wines, beer, coffee 
and soft drinks.

 Audiences get the ultimate 
outdoor concert experience 
with large LED video screens 
to see Michael Feinstein 
and the orchestra up close, 
superior sound and the high-
quality production value that 
is a signature of the Pasadena 
POPS. Patrons may also visit 
the Pasadena Humane Society’s 
Mobile Adoption Unit, which 
will be on-site prior to each 
concert with deserving animals 
in need of a forever home as 
part of the Pups for POPS 
program. For those who want 
to make a night of it, exclusive 
hotel packages are available for 
POPS patrons at Pasadena’s 
landmark Hotel Constance.

 The Arboretum is located 
at 301 North Baldwin Ave., 
Arcadia, CA. Subscribers 
may pre-purchase parking 
on-site at the Arboretum, 
and all concertgoers enjoy 
free parking at the adjacent 
Westfield Santa Anita shopping

NASA’s Dawn spacecraft 
reached its lowest-ever and 
final orbit around dwarf 
planet Ceres on June 6 and 
has been returning thousands 
of stunning images and other 

 The flight team maneuvered 
the spacecraft into an orbit that 
dives 22 miles (35 kilometers) 
above the surface of Ceres and 
viewed Occator Crater, site of 
the famous bright deposits, 
and other intriguing regions. 
In more than three years of 
orbiting Ceres, Dawn’s lowest 
altitude before this month was 
240 miles (385 kilometers), so 
the data from this current orbit 
bring the dwarf planet into 
much sharper focus.

 These low orbits have revealed 
unprecedented details of the 
relationships between bright 
and dark materials in the region 
of Vinalia Faculae. Dawn’s 
visible and infrared mapping 
spectrometer had previously 
found the bright deposits to 
be made of sodium carbonate, 
a material commonly found in 
evaporite deposits on Earth. 
Last week Dawn fired its ion 
engine, possibly for the final 
time, to fly nearer Cerealia 
Facula, the large deposit of 
sodium carbonate in the center 
of Occator Crater.

 “Acquiring these spectacular 
pictures has been one of the 
greatest challenges in Dawn’s 
extraordinary extraterrestrial 
expedition, and the results 
are better than we had ever 
hoped,” said Dawn’s chief 
engineer and project manager, 
Marc Rayman, of NASA’s 
Jet Propulsion Laboratory, 
Pasadena, California. “Dawn 
is like a master artist, adding 
rich details to the otherworldly 
beauty in its intimate portrait 
of Ceres.”

 The wealth of information 
contained in these images, and 
more that are planned in the 
coming weeks, will help address 
key, open questions about the 
origin of the faculae, the largest 
deposits of carbonates observed 
thus far outside Earth, and 
possibly Mars. In particular, 
scientists have been wondering 
how that material was exposed, 
either from a shallow, sub-
surface reservoir of mineral-
laden water, or from a deeper 
source of brines (liquid water 
enriched in salts) percolating 
upward through fractures.

 And the low-altitude 
observations obtained with 
Dawn’s other instruments, 
a gamma ray and neutron 
detector and a visible and 
infrared mapping spectrometer, 
will reveal the composition of 
Ceres at finer scale, shedding 
new light on the origin of 
the materials found across 
Ceres’ surface. New gravity 
measurements also may reveal 
details of the subsurface.

 “The first views of Ceres 
obtained by Dawn beckoned 
us with a single, blinding bright 
spot,” said Carol Raymond 
of JPL, Dawn’s principal 
investigator. “Unraveling the 
nature and history of this 
fascinating dwarf planet during 
the course of Dawn’s extended 
stay at Ceres has been thrilling, 
and it is especially fitting that 
Dawn’s last act will provide 
rich new data sets to test those 

 The Dawn mission is 
managed by JPL for NASA’s 
Science Mission Directorate 
in Washington. Dawn is a 
project of the directorate’s 
Discovery Program, managed 
by NASA’s Marshall Space 
Flight Center in Huntsville, 
Alabama. JPL is responsible 
for overall Dawn mission 
science. Orbital ATK Inc., in 
Dulles, Virginia, designed 
and built the spacecraft. The 
German Aerospace Center, 
Max Planck Institute for Solar 
System Research, Italian Space 
Agency and Italian National 
Astrophysical Institute are 
international partners on the 
mission team.
