So, is it "each other" or "one another"? A user on a writers' message board has sought out the expertise of her colleagues on how to choose between these two phrases. And she gets her answer. "Each other," a pretty savvy fellow message board user tells her, is for relationships between just two people. "One another" is for relationships between three or more. It's handy. It's dandy. It's logical. And in the questioner's mind, it's now the official law of the land. Will the user who posted the question go on to share her newfound wisdom with others?

Last week I began the other part of my new job for the Glendale News-Press. As moderator of the Valley Voice blog (crescenta.wordpress.com crescenta.wordpress.com ), I started adding links to local restaurants and interests like a good blogger should. One day later, I began to ponder the bigger picture, fantasizing about a forum where our community could dig into meatier issues. Sure. We could blog on the wacky combinations of toppings one puts on frozen yogurt. Or when the line is shortest at In-N-Out.

The commission's approval Monday means the Planning Commission will review the guidelines on March 15. If the Planning Commission gives its blessing, the City Council could introduce the city's first historic district ordinance on April 18, and approve it a week later.

The Glendale Historical Society and the city of Glendale are receiving some big honors — historically speaking. With a recent award for the city's new historic districting guidelines and the possibility of the city's first historic district, city preservation advocates have their hands full — and it is just in time, as May is national Historic Preservation Month.

GLENDALE ? The City Council on Wednesday directed staff members to change the Historic District guidelines to allow for the Historic Preservation Commission to review certain plan applications; to shorten the length of time it takes to create a district; and state that residents in a potential district are to be notified immediately after the first petition is signed by 25% of its residents. Council members hashed over these and several other sticking points in the three-year-old ordinance at a study session Wednesday regarding the guidelines for establishing and managing historic districts.

Homes on skinny, smaller lots in Los Angeles are doing so well they sell out in neighborhoods like Silver Lake and Atwater Village over a weekend. Now, Glendale officials think what worked across the border can spark the right kind of development in some of the city's densest neighborhoods. “If they're successful in L.A., they can be successful in Glendale,” said Principal Planner Laura Stotler. For years, Glendale has been down-zoning overdeveloped areas in South Glendale.

The U.S. Department of Transportationdoesn't want you tweeting on Twitter, poking on Facebook, or giving a "thumbs up" to new music on Pandora when you're behind the wheel -- unless your car is parked. And to that end, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood announced on Thursday the "first-ever federally proposed guidelines to encourage automobile manufacturers to limit the distraction risk for in-vehicle electronic devices. " Translated, LaHood and the Transportation Department are calling for an end to distractions caused by our in-car infotainment systems, which are increasingly relying on touch screens to operate and bringing navigation, music and even social networking apps into the cabin of our rides.

CITY HALL — City officials this week moved closer to a set of development guidelines for the North Glendale annex of the Crescenta Valley. The City Council on Tuesday gave city planners direction to proceed with drafting the North Glendale Community Plan, which would serve as a "constitution" to guide other policy documents and potential zoning changes. The move is a milestone in a process that started in 2008 when the City Council directed the Planning Department to respond to concerns from residents who wanted to preserve their area's rural feel and mountain views from encroaching development.

CITY HALL — The City Council today will consider an interim green building policy for new development projects before a comprehensive, more permanent set of regulations are drafted. The council last month held off on establishing the citywide policy, instead creating a community task force of local stakeholders to wrestle with the issue while city officials wait for pending green building codes to be approved by state legislators this summer. Glendale’s top building safety official, Stuart Tom, recommended that the council wait for the state standards, which he said could be used as a starting point.

CITY HALL — Under increasingly narrow federal spending guidelines and pressed for time, the City Council on Tuesday authorized $660,934 in federal stimulus funds for a nonprofit child care center and East Garfield neighborhood improvements. In doing so, the council rejected an earlier Community Development Block Grant Advisory Committee recommendation to peg a large chunk of the money for a new youth center for Homenetmen Glendale Ararat Chapter. In June, the committee voted unanimously to uphold its original recommendations to allocate $660,934 to New Horizons Family Center and Homenetmen — and a city capital improvement project to be determined.

Part 1 Body proportions It is essential to understand the importance of body proportions and balance in the choice of clothing designs. Technically, vertical body proportions for clothing styles can be determined through charting the body (on paper) to analyze your bone structure. With the paper attached to the wall (as tall as the person ? from the floor), a diagram of the human body is determined by having someone mark: top of the head to the underarm, underarm to the hipline (where the leg meets the torso)
