Survivors, caregivers and their families were among the dozens of people who turned out July 19-20 for the Relay for Life in Saratoga. The ninth annual event drew about 300 people to the Saint Andrew’s Field for the weekend-long activities and to take turns walking around the track. In the end, Relay raised a little more than $37,000, with another month to go before the end of the fundraiser. Twenty-three teams and 96 people participated. Residents from Saratoga and beyond showed off their musical and dancing skills for a worthy cause at the Saratoga’s Got Talent show held Aug. 15 at the Joan Pisani Community Center. As in years past, the show featured singers, dancers, magicians, stand-up comics and an acrobatics performance. There was also a segment that showcased the talents of people who attend the open mic events the organization holds at the Blue Rock Shoot every month. The event donated proceeds to the Saratoga Senior Center.

The analyst also believes that Tesla will be able to popularize autonomous car software, an effort long under development at Google that Musk said last year his company will attempt in a different way. “As the role of software engulfs the car, the world’s only Silicon Valley-based car company has the upper hand,” Jonas wrote. “We see autonomous cars contributing $5.6 trillion in economic savings globally.”.
Despite his comfort in front of a crowd, Muller, a novelist and former journalist, considers himself a writer first, He’s the author of eight books including “Grindhouse: The Forbidden World of ‘Adults Only’ Cinema” (1996), “Dark City Dames: stained glass, ballet shoes, to order The Wicked Women of Film Noir” (2001), and “Tab Hunter Confidential: The Making of a Movie Star” (2005), But it was his volume “Dark City: The Lost World of Film Noir” (1998) that helped Muller build a small empire around his passion for the dark, hard-bitten movies that peaked in Hollywood between 1944 and 1955..
