On Wednesday, June 1, 44 Women for Orangewood, a dynamic group of women passionate about helping Orange County’s foster and community youth, hosted its 18th Annual Scholarship Luncheon at the Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach.
The Luncheon welcomed over 350 guests and featured premier elements such as opportunity drawings and prizes including a featured Twila True jewelry piece, a champagne cocktail hour, a live fund-a-need for Orangewood’s youth, and two special guest speakers.
The event netted $340,000. All proceeds from the event will benefit Orangewood Foundation’s foster youth and programs.
“The support we were shown by our donors, sponsors, and community members at this year’s event was truly remarkable and will have a positive impact Orangewood Foundation, allowing them to better serve the youth who are in foster care,” said 44 Women for Orangewood Co-Founder, Susan Samueli of Newport Beach. “We are proud to host this Luncheon each year as it continuously helps Orangewood Foundation help young individuals reach their greatest potentials.”
The Luncheon welcomed keynote speaker Deidre Pujols, the founder of Open Gate International, a culinary program that offers hands-on training and life skills to students, and Strike Out Slavery, an event designed to raise awareness at Major League Baseball Games about the existence of modern-day slavery.
She is also the CEO of Pujols Kitchen LLC and the founder of Pujols Family Foundation, a national nonprofit agency that supports children with Down Syndrome along with their families and improves the lives of impoverished individuals living in the Dominican Republic.
This year’s youth speaker, Junely Merwin, shared how her personal journey led her to become an advocate for youth. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Junely entered the foster care system at the age of 15 with her one-month-old son in her arms and remained in care until she aged out at 21.
Following her time in foster care, Junely earned a full-ride scholarship through the Guardian Scholars Program at California State University Fullerton, earning her bachelor’s degree in Human Services with a concentration in Mental Health, Administration and Community Practice.
As an individual who has overcome overbearing obstacles, Junely now devotes herself to advocacy work to improve the foster care system concentrating on topics such as mental health, life skills, resources, the importance of support systems, sex education, higher education, and an emphasis on teenage mothers. She is a member and the foster youth ambassador for Alliance of Moms who support teen parents in foster care and continues to raise awareness for the causes she is passionate about through social media and her website, merwinjayact.com.
“Orangewood Foundation is eternally grateful for the 44 Women for Orangewood group and their dedication to our community and foster youth,” shared Chris Simonsen, CEO of Orangewood Foundation. “The scholarships funded through this annual event allow us to provide for these youth and equip them with the tools and resources they need to continue their education and reach their greatest potential.”
The 18th Annual Scholarship Luncheon was led by committee co-chairs, Susan Samueli and Judy Nicholls, and made possible by several sponsors and donors, including, Magna Cum Laude sponsors, Samueli Foundation and Mitzi-Garcia Stein; Valedictorian sponsors, Newport Beach Dermatology & Plastic Surgery and Union Bank; and Salutatorian sponsors Kaiser Permanente, Farmers & Merchants Bank, Modern Luxury, Julie & Greg Dunlap, CalPac Sheet Metal, Yvette & Kevin McCarthy, and Anaheim Ducks & Honda Center.
44 Women for Orangewood was founded in 1999 by Susan Samueli. As some of Orange County’s most philanthropically minded and dedicated women, this organization contributes to Orangewood Foundation by supporting and inspiring foster and community youth that receive support services through programs provided by Orangewood Foundation. The three key effort areas of the group are providing mentoring and education, increasing community awareness about the youth Orangewood serves, and hosting annual fundraising events.

Hubble Space Telescope captures largest near-infrared image to find universe’s rarest galaxies

An international team of scientists recently released the largest near-infrared image ever taken by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, enabling astronomers to map the star-forming regions of the universe and learn how the earliest, most distant galaxies originated. Named 3D-DASH, this high-resolution survey will allow researchers to find rare objects and targets for follow-up observations with the recently launched James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) during its decades-long mission.
“Since its launch more than 30 years ago, the Hubble Space Telescope has led a renaissance in the study of how galaxies have changed in the last 10 billion years of the universe,” says Lamiya Mowla, Dunlap Fellow at the Faculty of Arts & Science’s Dunlap Institute for Astronomy & Astrophysics at the University of Toronto and lead author of the study.
“The 3D-DASH program extends Hubble’s legacy in wide-area imaging so we can begin to unravel the mysteries of the galaxies beyond our own.”
For the first time, 3D-DASH provides researchers with a complete near-infrared survey of the entire COSMOS field, one of the richest data fields for extragalactic studies beyond the Milky Way. As the longest and reddest wavelength observed with Hubble – just beyond what is visible to the human eye – near-infrared means astronomers are better able to see the earliest galaxies that are the farthest away.
Astronomers also need to search a vast area of the sky to find rare objects in the universe. Until now, such a large image was only available from the ground and suffered from poor resolution, which limited what could be observed. 3D-DASH will help to identify unique phenomena like the universe’s most massive galaxies, highly active black holes, and galaxies on the brink of colliding and merging into one.
“I am curious about monster galaxies, which are the most massive ones in the universe formed by the mergers of other galaxies. How did their structures grow, and what drove the changes in their form?” says Mowla, who began working on the project in 2015 as a graduate student at Yale University. “It was difficult to study these extremely rare events using existing images, which is what motivated the design of this large survey.”
To image such an expansive patch of sky, the researchers employed a new technique with Hubble known as Drift And SHift (DASH). DASH creates an image that is eight times larger than Hubble’s standard field of view by capturing multiple shots that are then stitched together into one master mosaic, similar to taking a panoramic picture on a smartphone.
DASH also takes images faster than the typical technique, snapping eight pictures per Hubble’s orbit instead of one picture, achieving in 250 hours what would previously have taken 2,000 hours.
“3D-DASH adds a new layer of unique observations in the COSMOS field and is also a steppingstone to the space surveys of the next decade,” says Ivelina Momcheva, head of data science at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy and principal investigator of the study. “It gives us a sneak peek of future scientific discoveries and allows us to develop new techniques to analyze these large datasets.”

3D-DASH covers a total area almost six times the size of the moon in the sky as seen from Earth. This record is likely to remain unbroken by Hubble’s successor, JWST, which is instead built for sensitive, close-up images to capture fine detail of a small area. It is the largest near-infrared image of the sky available to astronomers until the next generation of telescopes launch in the next decade, such as the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope and Euclid.
Until then, professional astronomers and amateur stargazers alike can explore the skies using an interactive, online version of the 3D-DASH image created by Gabriel Brammer, a faculty member at the Cosmic Dawn Center in the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen.
The Hubble Space Telescope is a project of international cooperation between NASA and European Space Agency (ESA). NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center manages the telescope in Greenbelt, Maryland. The Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore, Maryland, conducts Hubble science operations. STScI is operated for NASA by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy in Washington, D.C.

NFL Free Agents
Pretend for the day one of the most populous cities in the United States without an NFL team was awarded a franchise in 2022. Such cities include San Antonio, San Jose, Columbus, El Paso, and Oklahoma City.
If there was no expansion draft [for some reason], this is the roster the hypothetical general manager could construct as of May 24 via free agency.
QB – Cam Newton
Newton’s days as a bonafide starter are kaput in the NFL, but he’ll make a serviceable QB2 somewhere — if he’d accept such a gig.
RB – Peyton Barber
Barber is suddenly a journeyman running back, spending time with Buccaneers, Commanders, and Raiders. He’s 27.
WR – Julio Jones
Either Julio Jones had a quiet 2021 and is poised for a resurgence — or he’s nearing the end of the road.
WR – Odell Beckham
Whichever team signs on the dotted line for Beckham will receive a damn good football player ready for a playoff push. But he won’t be healed from injury until October or November.
WR – Will Fuller
Fuller will be signed before too long, but he never remains healthy, so teams aren’t flocking to his free-agent doorstep.
TE – Rob Gronkowski
We had to tap Gronkowski for this spot, and he’ll just re-sign with Tampa Bay this summer.
LT – Riley Reiff
Reiff’s team reached the Super Bowl in February without him. Bummer.
LG – Ereck Flowers
Not great; not bad. Flowers is a decent guard who should sign with a team this summer.
C – JC Tretter
The two-month-long mystery about Tretter’s strange free agency revolves around health.
RG – Billy Price
Price, 27, started 15 games for the Giants in 2021. He was a 1st-Round pick in 2018.
RT – Daryl Williams
Wiliams fired up a solid 67.5 score from Pro Football Focus in 2021.
EDGE – Carl Nassib
Nassib, 29, will land on his feet as a situational pass rusher in 2022.
DT – Akiem Hicks
A Viking killer, Minnesota should sign Hicks just so he doesn’t play somewhere else.
NT – Linval Joseph
Joseph is old, has a sweet Vikings tattoo on his body, and is a free agent. At this age, he should chase rings.
DT – Ndamukong Suh
This Super Bowl champion hasn’t missed a football game since 2011.
EDGE – Carlos Dunlap
Dunlap is a two-time Pro Bowler who, like Nassib, will sign with a team as a situational pass rusher.
LB – Anthony Barr
Vikings fans thought Anthony Barr would be a relatively hot commodity in free agency. He wasn’t. Barr has been linked in the rumor mill to the New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys.
LB – Joe Schobert
Schobert had a down year in 2021, but he’s a tackling machine otherwise.
CB – Joe Haden
Haden, like many free agents on this list, is getting old. He’s a three-time Pro Bowler around the same age as Patrick Peterson.
CB – Xavier Rhodes
Rhodes stunk during the season finale of his Vikings career, but he was revitalized in Indianapolis, to an extent. He isn’t quite done.
FS – Landon Collins
Collins was a tyrant during his first four seasons with the New York Giants but never really took off in Washington — at least at an All-Pro or Pro Bow level.
SS – Tashaun Gipson
Safety availability in free agency is arid at the moment, and Gipson makes the cut here almost by default.
Kicker – Michael Badgley
Badgley was a part of the snakebitten special teams culture with the Chargers. He’ll be the first guy signed when another team’s kicker infuriates its general manager.
Punter – Michael Palardy
Obligatory anonymous punter commentary.
Dustin Baker is a political scientist who graduated from the University of Minnesota in 2007. Subscribe to his daily YouTube Channel, VikesNow. He hosts a podcast with Bryant McKinnie, which airs every Wednesday with Raun Sawh and Sally from Minneapolis. His Viking fandom dates back to 1996. Listed guilty pleasures: Peanut Butter Ice Cream, ‘The Sopranos,’ and The Doors (the band).
Dr. JJ Kavelaars receives 2022 Dunlap Award

Dr. JJ Kavelaars, Head of the Canadian Astronomy Data Centre (CADC) and Principal Research Officer at the Herzberg Astronomy and Astrophysics (HAA) Research Centre has just been recognized with one of the top honours in Canadian astronomy – the 2022 Dunlap Award for Innovation in Astronomical Research Tools from the Canadian Astronomical Society (CASCA). Every 2 years, the award is presented to an individual or team for instrumentation or software that has enabled significant advances in astronomy. This year, Dr. Kavelaars has been recognized for his leadership at the CADC.
Operating out of the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory (DAO) near Victoria, BC, the CAD is one of the largest and most powerful astronomy data management centres in the world, delivering over a petabyte (1 million gigabytes) of data each year to astronomers worldwide. It hosts data from more than 250 telescope and instrument combinations, including the Hubble Space Telescope, the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope, Gemini Observatory – and soon the James Webb Space Telescope.
Dr. Kavelaars has been head of the CADC for 5 years. During this time, the CADC has provided public access to its largest number of telescope archival datasets, helped bring high-performance distributed cloud computing services to Canadian astronomers via the Canadian Advanced Network for Astronomical Research (CANFAR), and laid the groundwork for new archives and processing environments for the upcoming James Webb Space Telescope, Vera C. Rubin Observatory and the Square Kilometre Array.
Dr. Kavelaars' leadership of the CADC has enabled it to literally set the bar for virtual observatory data standards – a new model, the Common Archive Observation Model (CAOM) – developed by the CADC to make data search and retrieval easier for astronomers, has been incorporated into International Virtual Observatory Alliance standards. Speaking to the impact of this improved access, the CADC is now acknowledged in over 300 papers every year.
Nominations across the astronomy world
"JJ's science-driven approach, and his leadership skills, have enabled the CADC team to be at the front line of new innovative developments for data intensive astronomy research."Dr. Mark Allen, Director, Strasbourg Astronomical Data Centre
"JJ has played a pivotal role in a number of software developments and data distribution mechanisms. For example, he was the lead developer of the VOSpace File System on CANFAR that has subsequently been used to distribute many millions of data files to astronomers working across multiple fields."Matthew J. Payne, Acting Director, Minor Planet Center, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
Continued research efforts
In addition to his role at HAA with the CADC, Dr. Kavelaars is an adjunct professor at the University of Victoria and continues to make ground-breaking discoveries in the Kuiper Belt using ground and space-based telescopes, as well as being a part of NASA's New Horizons mission team.
A history of innovation to support astronomy at the NRC
In its brief history, the Dunlap Award has also previously been awarded to HAA's Peter Stetson in 2016, for his work in photometry, developing the DAOPHOT program, and a star catalog which underpins the majority of photometric observations carried out today.

Dunlap’s Donuts Delivers Deliciousness

Seven years ago, Aly Trinh and her husband Kevin lived in Stockton, working in an industrial food warehouse, hoping to start their own business one day. After hearing about a donut shop for sale in Santa Cruz, they quit their jobs and moved to town the next day. As the new owners of Dunlap’s Donuts, Kevin does the baking and Aly manages. Dunlap’s represents much more than a place that serves killer donuts; it’s a dream realized. It’s also become known as a haven, a neighborhood spot with outside-the-box donuts. Aly’s favorite is the drool-worthy crème brûlée, with a torched shell and custard filling. Kevin, meanwhile, is a fan of the s’mores donut, packed with marshmallows, graham crackers and Hershey’s chocolate (campfire not included). Then there is an array of customer faves, with the Fruity Pebbles-crusted donut at the top of the list. They also serve delicious housemade breakfast sandwiches. Dunlap’s is open every day, 5:30am-2pm (or until they sell out). Aly spoke about uprooting her life in the name of donuts and the creative key to their success.
Was taking over Dunlap’s worth such a big change in your life?
ALY TRINH: The first two years were tough; we were new to the area, and business didn’t pick up like we thought it would. We didn’t have a large variety of donuts, so that’s when Kevin tried new flavors and creative types based on trends and what tasted good to him. Then people started trying our new specialty donuts and business really picked up. We also improved our recipe, making the donuts softer and fluffier. Now, we feel like part of the community, business is better and we are so happy we came here to do this.
What was your opening day like?
I remember it was the first time I ever had to wake up at 3:30am in my life because I had to be here at 4:30am. But I was also really excited because it was my first day owning something and working for myself. I didn’t even know how to make coffee, bag the donuts correctly, or make the breakfast sandwiches. I had to learn how to run the entire shop in two days. I learned by doing, and I learned really quickly.
