    Arriving at base camp in Crown Point at dusk on Friday, Nov. 15, Jim Hillmann from San Jose, in the midst of his Susan G. Komen 3-Day walk, reflected on why he returns year after year. “I’m here because my mom passed away from breast cancer in 2004,” Hillmann said, noting San Diego’s Komen Walk is the closest of the seven national regional walks he’s done every year for the past 12. Hillmann said the Komen walk is a transformative experience. “You come out here as a first-time walker, and it doesn’t take long before you realize, ‘I’m part of a bigger community, a community that is here to support each other,’ ” he said. “By the time you're done with three days and 60 miles, you’ve made connections, and now you start feeling the power of that community — and the synergy that comes from that.” The pink-themed, anti-breast cancer, three-day walk is no small feat, any way you look at it. “You’re required to raise $2,300 for every walk,” said Hillmann, adding, “And if you walk multiple cities, it’s $2,300 each walk, $16,100 for all seven.” Hillman hosts four fundraisers — a Bunko parlor game, collecting recyclables, an Oakland A’s baseball game and sales from a commemorative coin and pin —that collectively pay for all seven of his Komen walks. Hillman said, on day one of the Komen walk, which starts in Del Mar and ends in downtown San Diego three days later, that he saw a woman in tears whom he described as “overwhelmed.” “We were there to pick her up, talk with her and support her,” he added. Outfitted with a team shirt, badges, ribbons, buttons and all manner of Komen memorabilia, Hillman pointed out that it’s a real sense of accomplishment for him to walk 420 miles in seven cities over 21 days between August and the end of November. “Every time I walk, at the end, it is just as powerful as the time before,” noted Hillmann. “You’ve accomplished something. You’ve shared your story with new people; they’ve shared their stories. It never gets old for me.”  People have asked Hillman, “How can you do so many walks, and why do you keep coming back?”  To that, he responds, “Because there is so much that I can get out of it. There’s a difference you’ve made, an impact.” Should more people be doing the Komen walk? “Absolutely,” answered Hillmann. “When you see the impact you’re making you go, ‘Whoa, This is what it’s all about.’ By the end of day two, they’re ready to register. ‘Sign me up for year two.’ ” Concluded Hillman of the Komen walk experience: “It’s a life-changer.” Komen 3-Day raises $7 million This past weekend, more than 2,000 participants completed the journey of a lifetime at the Susan G. Komen San Diego 3-Day. Together, passionate women and men walked 60-miles over the course of three days in the fight for a world without breast cancer, raising $5.7 million. The Komen 3-Day is the longest distance one can go in the fight against breast cancer. These men and women each raised a minimum of $2,300 and walked 20 miles a day for three consecutive days, all while educating tens of thousands of people about breast health. The proceeds will support the mission of Susan G. Komen by funding breakthrough research and efforts to ensure all people receive the best health care they need. To date, $140.7 million has been raised in the area through the Komen San Diego 3-Day. “We cannot thank our amazing 3-Day family enough for their time and dedication to this cause,” said Carrie Stovall, Susan G. Komen vice president of events. “Every step they take and every dollar they raise gets us closer to our bold goal of reducing the current number of breast cancer deaths in the U.S. by 50 percent by 2026. San Diego has been so supportive of Susan G. Komen and it’s always an incredible experience to host the 3-Day in this city. San Diego, we thank you!” Participants of the 3-Day have trained and fundraised for several months in preparation for the event, which fosters lifelong friendships and memories while providing the community a moving opportunity to honor those who have battled and for those who continue to fight breast cancer. Participants spent the weekend walking through the San Diego area before concluding with a moving closing ceremony at Waterfront Park. “The 3-Day is all about raising money and spreading awareness,” said 12 ½ year survivor and nine-time walker Debbie Feinberg. “Even if you can’t complete the full 60 miles, you can walk one day for 20 miles or even walk portions of the weekend, it’s all worth it because, in the end, it’s the sense of community and inspiration for survivors, those battling and future generations.”

    Veterans gather on Mount Soledad to celebrate Veterans Day

    Military planes painted the sky overhead, the Marine Band San Diego played patriotic tunes, the Marine Corps Recruit Depot presented the colors and a true American hero was honored at the traditional Mount Soledad Veterans Day ceremony Monday, Nov. 11.

    Hosted by the Mount Soledad Veterans Memorial Association (MSNVM), this year’s ceremony’s special plaque honoree was senior chief petty officer Kenton Stacy and his family. A U.S. Navy volunteer, Kenton chose to be in one of the military’s most dangerous occupational specialties, an explosive ordinance disposal technician. After more than 50 combat missions, Stacy was severely injured when an improvised explosive device (IED) detonated in 2017 in Syria. 

    Kenton has received numerous awards for his distinguished valor, including a Purple Heart, two Bronze Star medals and three Navy Achievement medals. In 2010, he was named USO Sailor of the Year.

    Veterans Day on Nov. 11 traces its roots back to World War I, which ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the armistice with Germany went into effect ending the war to end all wars. Originally known as Armistice Day, the U.S. federal holiday was renamed Veterans Day in 1954. 

    Distinct from Memorial Day, a U.S. public holiday in May honoring those who’ve died in military service, Veterans Day honors all who’ve served, living and deceased, in all U.S. armed services.

    Stacy’s plaque will join more than 5,200 others enshrined on the walls surrounding the Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial at 6905 La Jolla Scenic Drive South. Honorees include U.S. presidents, 12 Medal of Honor recipients, generals and celebrity veterans.

    Congress members Scott Peters and Susan Davis presented a proclamation honoring Stacy. Mayor Kevin Faulconer also spoke, noting “the military is in San Diego’s DNA. Today is about coming together as a community to honor these heroes for their lifetime of patriotism and courage serving our nation.” 

    Of the Mt. Soledad memorial, Faulconer said, “It is a special place for all San Diegans. It’s the only memorial in the United States that honors veterans both living and deceased from the Revolutionary War to the war on terror.” 

    Of memorial plaques, Faulconer said, “They put a face to the names of our heroes and captures a moment in time for that veteran, reminding us of their great commitment to our country.”

    Master of ceremonies Marc Bailey quoted immediate past San Diego Police Chief Shelley Zimmerman in noting, “Leadership is a shared responsibility. That’s what you have represented up here on every single one of these plaques, and every one of our veterans who’ve ever served this nation. Each and every one is a leader.”

    Sgt. Neil O’Connell, USMC Ret. and president of MSNVM, thanked those assembled for “supporting us in every endeavor.”

    “We should especially thank those who made the ultimate sacrifice,” said O’Connell, who added Wi-Fi is now available at the memorial, “for eventually having a virtual tour created here to give stories about each and every veteran. We also have created an endowment so that this memorial will remain funded  … to teach our youngsters and our citizens about the sacrifices of our veterans preserving their legacy.”

    Keynote speaker was Capt. Oscar Rojas, Commodore Explosive Ordnance Disposal Group One. 

    The ceremony was capped by a performance by the San Diego Salute Formation Team.

    Asked what it means to be a vet and the significance of Veterans Day, Brian T. Grana said, "Vets are thanked profusely for our service on Veterans Day. For me, and in reality, I like thanking the citizens who allowed me to serve and wear the cloth of our great nation. 

    "When thanked, I typically respond with: 'Thank you for paying my salary and being the type of American citizen worth fighting for.' The first part often elicits a chuckle; the second part, a pregnant pause and an 'I will try harder.'"

    Padres Pedal the Cause helps La Jolla hospitals and doctors fight cancer

    One day, six races and more than 2,700 participants. Padres Pedal the Cause is a hope-giving, cancer-research-funding event that’s taken place at San Diego’s Petco Park (100 Park Blvd.) every year since 2013. In the last six years, Padres Pedal has raised more than $10 million, with 100% being donated to local research centers like Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health in La Jolla, and children’s hospitals like Rady’s in Serra Mesa, all in an effort to end cancer once and for all.

    In total, the event funds 53 local cancer research projects, five of which are clinical trials.

    “We’ve had more and more participants join in each year and this year’s event will definitely be one of our biggest,” said Anne Marbarger, executive director of Padres Pedal. “To know that we’re an organization that’s providing hope for these families by funding research that’s actually going towards making sure kids in the future don’t get cancer or at least have better treatment options, that’s super meaningful.”

    Padres Pedal hosts races this Saturday, Nov. 16, ranging from 5K running events to 25, 55, 88 and even 100-mile bike rides over the Coronado Bay Bridge and through Coronado’s Silver Strand State Beach. And local doctors, in addition to cancer in-patient families, are also breaking out their bikes to join the cause.

    “I have seen cancer take the lives of many individuals over my professional career, including my dad and one of my best friends,” said Paul Dougherty, a La Jolla-based dentist at his own clinic, Dougherty Dental. “So, it was a no-brainer to get involved.”

    Dougherty has been an avid bike rider for the last 20 years, beginning with his first mission-focused raced with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training national cycling event in 1999. Dougherty says he got “hooked” on the mission and began focusing his attention on local efforts to fight fatal diseases. When Bill Koman, a cyclist and two-time lymphoma survivor, brought his Pedal the Cause event from St. Louis to San Diego in 2013, Dougherty jumped at the chance to join.

    “It has always been a positive experience for me to ride side by side with a team of people all working towards a common goal to fight this disease,” said Dougherty, who rides with Team Beaumont in Padres Pedal’s 100-mile race, The Century. “The money raised at Padres Pedal is really making a difference in the trenches battling cancer, and I’m seeing positive outcomes more today than ever before.”

    One of those positive outcomes is Padres Pedal’s focus on empowering kids who want to get outside the hospital and be active, either by participating in the kids bike race “Super Hero Kids Challenge,” or by one of these “SuperKids” being sponsored by a Padres Pedal team. One of the children in the SuperKids program is 4-year-old Savannah Schwartz, a Rady’s brain cancer patient and daughter of Jonathan Schwartz, cycling team captain of the WD-40 bike team in Padres Pedal.

    “Padres Pedal has been a big support system for us by changing our perspective about life and about people,” said Schwartz, whose daughter was diagnosed at the age of 2. “You never fully understand what resilience is until you see a child go through something like this. The pain they endure through treatment is astronomical, but my daughter has always done it with a smile and that smile has given us a lot of strength.”

    “My team last year supported a 5-year-old boy named Ryker who was being treated at Rady’s,” added Dougherty, who just last spring diagnosed one of his patients with oral cancer. “Seeing him fight the battles of trying to beat his disease was very impactful for each of us as a team and significant in why we need funds to find a cure.”

    To register for Padres Pedal the Cause events, visit mygopedal.org. Check-in begins at 4:30 a.m. and events last from 6 a.m. until 5 p.m. when the park closes. Lunch and bar services are provided and there’s a finish-line festival with live music at the end of the races.

    San Diego named most beautiful city… again!

    From the best surf town to the best city for coffee fanatics, San Diego has been listed as a favorite more than a dozen times by publications such as Surfer Magazine, Culture Trip, Best Cities, and SmartAsset. In October, San Diego was once again featured in the spotlight during the Flight Network’s The World’s 50 Most Beautiful Cities campaign, ranking at No. 22, ahead of Madrid, Athens, and Jerusalem. “It’s certainly not the first time we’ve gotten recognition from editorial media or travel sites or even public opinion polls,” said Candice Eley, director of communications at San Diego Tourism Authority. “I think it’s pretty clear from anyone who lives here, that’s part of why we live here — the amazing landscapes, how diverse the city is, how you can go from the beach to the desert foothills in the span of an hour.” According to the Tourism Authority, visitors passing through San Diego spend roughly $11.5 billion every year. That amount of cash might make sense since the city also hosts 35.8 million visitors annually. Jam-packed to the brim with seaside taco shops (and trucks), breweries and beaches — not to mention the ample wine country hot-spots and historic towns — San Diego’s daytime and nighttime activities are virtually endless. “Something we also hear a lot from visitors is how clean our city is,” said Eley, who has lived in San Diego since 2004. “For the size of a major U.S. city, it can be really a really surprising thing to visitors how nice the streets and buildings are. I think that, plus how culturally dynamic our city is, helps a lot with our reputation.” The Flight Network, which asked the opinions of more than 1,000 travel writers, travel bloggers and travel agencies from all around the globe, raved about historic Balboa Park, home to “several different museums (as well as the famous San Diego Zoo) and tons of green spaces for biking, walking, or just frolicking around.” Eley says that while San Diego has always been known for its beaches and margaritas, in the last few years it’s starting to be more recognized for its musical performing arts and culinary expertise. “It’s something that’s been long overdue,” she said. But despite being the eighth-largest city in the country, San Diego is a surprisingly cozy, coastal, laid-back, beach-goer paradise with ample fine dining and tourist attractions, from Little Italy to Old Town, to Gaslamp Quarter to La Jolla. “That’s actually part of how we describe San Diego when we’re doing marketing promotions as a travel destination,” said Eley. “We talk about San Diego being a beach-city so it’s a combination of that easy-going, coastal, chill lifestyle vibe that you’d expect from a small-town beach destination, but it’s paired with great nightlife. It’s that combination that makes us special and unique.” Flight Network’s The World’s 50 Most Beautiful Cities 1. Paris 2. New York 3. London 4. Venice 5. Vancouver 6. Barcelona 7. Cape Town 8.

    Lawyer Seth: He'll either have to go crazy or come after you. In which case he'll still be completely insane.

    Gildred Companies 153554/2017 The New York Supreme Court Takes Diplomatic Bullying to a new low in An out of court intent to harass and criminalize campaign to is covered up by an in-court frivolous disdained lawsuit designed to push Tom Gildred (Emerald Textiles - FMT Consulting Founder) wife's x-lover into a state of mental insanity?

    The lesson here: https://emeraldtextiles.info

    Rancho Santa Fe's Tom Gildred & Wife Carolina Gildred is wrong.

    Subject: Rancho Santa Fe's Tom Gildred & Wife Carolina Gildred is wrong.

    Just stop for a while and think.

    (This email is sent to the attention of executives William H. McWethy, Timothy Busch, Jennifer M. Fall Jung & others such as Cary Mack, Jaye Park, Primier Inc. Craig McKasson, Bob Scharaga).

    How can a man or a friend construe an harassment campaign sufficient to destroy another man 3,000 miles away?

    A harassment campaign so much that if that man were to leave his jurisdiction in which the harassment is carried out, or travel into another state or travel to San Diego? Then Tom Gildred will then call an order to utterly wipe that man from existence and expect not to be held accountable for doing so.

    Michael Foster is a vibrant young entrepreneur - One who's honest. He Had been consistent on a progressive growth until Thompson Gildred and Wife Carolina Gildred sort it was too much of a public admission to accept a few months of extra-marital affair between wife Carolina Gildred and the young man Foster was too much a pill for Tom Gildred to swallow and just, LET - IT - Go!

    Michael was taken for a ride by Tom's wife Carolina who seduced him with gifts, a 3-4 of 1st class airfare round trips, some luxury hotels stays in San Diego and Yes a fund time making Love to each other all under the guise of dance. When the Shit hit the fan (Michael was not nearly the love maniac wife Carolina Hope he's turned out to be) She carefully turned on him and Thompson Gildred was only too happy to cater for her every Need

    What first turned out to be a joke in an effort to test Michael's resistance instead lead into and embarrassing moment for Tom's wife Carolina Gildred and worse Tom Gildred.

    Thompson and wife Carolina Gildred suddenly realized it was too difficult to recant the detail of their personal matrimonial issues - some of which Thompson Gildred himself found out by the various emotional tantrums expressed by Michael Foster in a number of Video Messages (off all Places) made available on YouTube.

    Instead of constructing a sit down with Michael Foster Thompson and WIfe began a plan with their attorney, which lead to another plan with their present attorney Seth A. Rafkin, which lead the Gildred San Diego Couple to introduce continually multiple layers of carefully calculated mental character accounts in hopes to paint a picture of Michael Foster as a Complete Mad Man. Fast-Forward 3.5 years and this is where They are Today.

    Michael Foster have spent 90% of his adult life developing his 3-Fold career of entrepreneurial skills as a Social iCon, a skillful Technician and a Profound IA (Intellectual Artist) Specialist. In his inventions he have created a number of US-Trademarks i.e "IA" is another term for Modern Art Meets Technology. Michael's artistic designs in IA derives from his digital interpretation (Translation for a better word) of Form and Expressions in the Physical Human Anatomy. Which is the transformations of the basic dynamics (Syncopation) of Technique & Balance found in various types of Dancing Styles.

    The results are various extremes of "Body Languages" (Michael says; "Its not just muscle memory - It is a life form of interpretations which can speak louder than voices").

    This all came to a stand-still because of an affair and Tom Gildred's fear that too many of his business associates will see him as a complete looser if he'd allow a man into his house invited by his wife and could not determine she could (merely) had been cheating on him.

    Instead:

    Tom Gildred convinced himself, that he had the apparatus in place to get away with the ultimate destruction of a man for the sole purpose; (His court documents says) "Michael convince wife Carolina Gildred to fly him out to CA to teach herself and a group of friends how to tango". But the only fact according to some text messages between wife and foster is at best: Michael's mistake was to be a better lover than husband Tom Gildred or so Michael must have thought. Nonetheless! This was "3' years ago.

    The question is,

    Do you? Will you allow Tom Gildred to get away with this? and if you do? How do you account for yourselves, as a friend of Tom, a business associates, an employee, a staff of Tom's Company. What could you say to your children or the colleagues at FMT Consultant, business and associates over a round of golf? NOTHING? That its merely a concern? Will you become numb? Will you say nothing because its all because of business connections?

    That it doesn't matter so long as it doesn't directly affect the benefits of doing business between you and Tom Gildred?

    What matters to you is only a profitable relationship - how one hand scratches the backs of another in business networking is all that counts?

    Will you draw reference to So much as a vein of Integrity? Will you say after 3.5 years of nonsense its a cause for pause?

    Would you agree that its OK for Tom Gildred, an obtuse Lawyer and wife Carolina Gildred to travel to NYC and on 2 separate days make themselves conveniently available for a physical confrontation with Michael Foster in the streets of NYC?( How Big a city is New York that any San Diegan let alone himself his wife and an attorney could land themselves proactively on the same streets of a Lunatic from New York so much as they did not fear but instead had their attorney Seth Rafkin swapped out a camera and video take an another preemptive incident in hopes of a physical altercation?).

    Among many things and at many times in many, many ways Michael have again apologize for the affair between Mrs Gildred and himself, but the spilling over of Tom Gildred's Adult Mental Affluenzas (Which Michael is not a psychiatrist but..)aren't it an issue nearly holding closeness to most of yourselves, ourselves and our neighboring friends, business associates or golf club buddies and families that something is grossly wrong here and if allowed to be continued could and possible might be too late to consult with our friend Tom Gildred?

    Maybe it could be ok for Tom Gildred to murder anyone in public also?

    We are all accountable and we cannot continue act as if it is not a fundamental concern.

    The truth is...

    Michael Foster NEVER at any time sort to deserve Tom Gildred and his wife Carolina Gildred's lengthy attacks upon his character, his personality and his everyday life was attacked and disrupted for no fault of his 3,000 miles away in New York City. http://www.emeraldtextiles.info

    To this day Michael Foster have not used an expletive to describe his grieve (Instead) he simply continues to apologize for and behalf of Tom Gildred and wife Carolina Gildred.

    Can we encourage Tom and Wife to take some responsibility finally? Isn't there more of especially a true and genuine friend to Tom Gildred's Wife Carolina Gildred there is to see in Michael Foster? Even attorney Seth Alan Rafkin could not respond to the senior administrative Judge of The New York Supreme Court in a hearing on September 18Th 2019 of "WHAT DO YOU WANT?" and "CAN YOU STATE WHAT SPECIFICALLY IS THERE IN A WEBSITE THAT IS DEFAMATION TO YOUR CLIENT?".

    "3" years ago was JUST that a time when any woman (Let alone) the wife of Tom Gildred needed a friend and however unfortunate A Passionate Lover - it could have been a tennis coach, a business associate, a pool-man or a landscaper. But it was with a friend of whom she's known for 15 years.

    Tom's vindictive harassment campaigns includes Michael Foster's character defamation (Paid for News Post Mass Publications in NY & CA). Launch campaigns through connections know to his wife and Michael Foster, (Tom) launched campaigns of Paid For Hire Informants (personal, social & business) to become associates of Michael with deceitful intent, (Tom) & (Wife) use both their own NYC friends and those easily persuaded friends of Michael Foster to influence stress in social, domestic, personal, health and business dealings associated with Michael's everyday life. Tom used (wife) to extract details from personal emails, text messages and phone conversations in which to acquire Michael's personal information, contacts and even access to Michael's Social Security number and records. Tom Gildred tried to extort Michael's intellectual property by threatening web hosting companies (to shut his server down) and google.com (for publishing videos of himself and wife).

    Michael is a young entrepreneur and artists who have suffered overwhelmingly throughout the last 3.5 years because of Tom Gildred's selfish ego and for telling TOM that he's a fraud of an entrepreneur.

    Tom Gildred and Wife Carolina Gildred is wrong.

    Tom Gildred's hopes of an inept matrimonial conclusion at the expense of our ignorance is too much to accept or just sit by and pretend it does not concern anyone because it does.

    The common fact still remains: (Michael Foster - Carolina Gildred) They's both had Sex and That is a fact too much of a pill to swallow (Though Deserving) of Mr. Tom Gildred.

    Instead: Tom Gildred? He's willing to dramatized an exponential Lawsuit 3,000 miles away which he concocted preemptively as a form of defamation against his wife for lying about SEX and his insidious accusations of Michael Foster's intent was an attempt to extort monies from Tom Gildred and his wife is the most disgusting excuse for a man who is bent on living a lie. As a friend or family or business associate you have the civic right not to join with Tom Gildred in his fictitious claims against an innocent, honest young man from New York City.

    "Money maybe no object" so long as it depletes the truth for Tom Gildred and (her words) Trophy wife Carolina Gildred. But friendship, Family and integrity is. (We can and We Will make a difference - because money and the networking of Tom Gildred for profit is not everything).

    Or? Is that a fact? The irony is, are you in support of Tom Gildred? In a case of wickedness and drama 3,000 miles away? Because you can agree if that's Tom Gildred and his wife Carolina Gildred's fascists then so let it be? Then its their drama? Then you too have been used to as a part of the troops of innocuous relativity on Tom Gildred and Wife Carolina Gildred's side.

    Why? Because Tom Gildred is the only one he wants you, and me and the world not to hold accountable - The shame have nothing to do with Tom Gildred's wife. It is all Tom Gildred and that is the reason why Tom Gildred's Lawsuit only mentions Tom Gildred as a witness. Tom Gildred's Lawsuit asserts his wife Carolina Gildred as an "Individual". Tom Gildred's exit strategy is simply as "Push will come to Shiv" That to him? Wife Carolina Gildred only needs to admit in all eventuality that She is basically insane and suffers from whatever relative mental insanity description Tom Gildred, Tom Gildred's Wife Carolina Gildred and their PAID FOR Hire business associate San Diego Psychiatrists Determines as a rightful mental Diagnostic - and So everyone lives happily ever after.

    Tom Gildred's (So Said) Wife Carolina Gildred's Attorney in the most recent New York City Supreme Court Appearance (Where Tom, his wife and Attorney Seth Alan Rafkin appeared)., held on September, 18 2019 stated before her honorable Judge Kaplan (Chan) that If you are a friend to Tom Gildred, I encourage you to tell him to STOP His NONSENSE and get on with his life.

    The transcript of Gildred v Foster can be found at any of the websites Tom Gildred claims to have been launch to defame his and his wife's character.

    What does Michael Foster Wants? Michael Foster Wants Mr. Tom Gildred of Rancho Santa Fe to understand 1st that he's sorry for his matrimonial grief. 2nd for the waste of Money he's spend on lawyers, pay-per writers and many the Michael's friends in NYC who'd used Tom's defamation rhetoric to harass Foster during during Tom Gildred's harassment campaign and for the money Tom Gildred needs to pay for the lengthy harassment campaign.

That this service would include 10 hours of service per month or the cost value that equates to Tom and Wife Carolina Gildred's Time donated to the specific Charity consistent with these services - let alone The Gildred Couple must adapt to the expediting of these services.
