Breast cancer happens to men also. About 1% of men will be diagnosed self exam is for both sexes and is a definite advantage. Dr. Susan Love’s Breast Book has a section or you can google “male breast cancer” and get any number of websites. Treatment would be similar.

Sanitation Open House Events
Commissioner Cynthia Ruiz, President, Board of Public Works City of Los Angeles; Lloyd Gaines, Superintendent, Bureau of Sanitation City of Los Angeles and eleven year old Nikki David of Laurel Hall School in North Hollywood
Open House Events are when the City’s six refuse yards open their doors to the public to serve family fun, food and prizes for kids. It’s a great family learning event. Its purpose really is to bond with the community and to help educate children about recycling and the City’s environmental programs while making it fun. (Photo left Cynthia Ruiz, LaFern Cusack, Lloyd Gaines, Jackie David. Front row: Nikki David)
There are many kids out there who are intrigued, for example, with how our refuse trucks work. At our Open House events, kids will not only get to see how they work, they’ll get to sit in the driver’s seat and explore. This gives both kids and adults an appreciation for the trucks that come to their homes once a week.
Open houses, budget allowing, are part of what the Bureau of Sanitation brings to the community every year. It began in 2003 and has grown in popularity over the years. City employees at these events all volunteer their time, energy and talent to make it happen for the community.
To date, the City of Los Angeles has achieved a 65% diversion rate citywide – that means that L.A. is ranked top recycler among the nation’s 10 largest cities. That’s because of what we all, as residents and businesses, do in L.A. Still, we can better. For example, when we recycle, we need to pay close attention to what we place in the blue bin. Dirty or soiled material doesn’t belong in the blue bin because it contaminates the rest of the recyclables.
