Required fields are marked * More Cool Stuff Dog Haus, the celebrated gourmet hot dog, sausage and burger concept, continues its expansion beyond its Pasadena, California hometown with the announcement of a 20-unit franchise deal that will bring its one-of-a-kind creations to the heart of Texas. The deal with local franchisee Ron Ryan, a veteran restauranteur and former V.P. of Operations with 49 unit Maggiano’s Little Italy, raises the total number of planned franchised Dog Haus locations to more than 100 in six states (Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, Utah, and now Texas) with more in the queue in the weeks to follow.“Beyond Ron’s extensive experience growing some of the nation’s best brands, his passion for what we are doing at Dog Haus was apparent from our first meeting,” Says Dog Haus Partner Hagop Giragossian, who co-founded the hot concept with friends and fellow partners André Vener and Quasim Riaz in 2010. “He wanted to learn everything, meet everyone, and took the time to understand who we are on a core level, so he can not only recreate the energy behind Dog Haus in the Texas market, but grow it in a way that makes sense for that community.”“I was immediately impressed with the Dog Haus team and the culture that André, Hagop and Quasim have engendered in just a few short years,” Says Ryan, who has more than 30 years in the hospitality industry. “These guys just get it, and I’m honored to be on this journey with them to bring such a high-quality product and dynamic brand to my local community.”Ryan joins more than 20 franchisees who have been similarly inspired by Dog Haus’ reinvention of the humble hot dog, sausage and burger since Giragossian, Riaz and Vener initially made the decision to franchise in 2013. The first franchise restaurant opened in June, 2014 signaling the brand’s growth from two company-owned restaurants in Pasadena, California with a current total of nine restaurants throughout Southern California, plus, most recently, Centennial, Colorado. Based on current construction timelines, the brand will open 11 additional franchise locations before the end of 2015 raising the total to 20. Dog Haus’ core leadership and culinary teams, including Executive Chef Michael Brown and Würstmacher (sausage-maker) Adam Gertler, will continue overseeing each stage of the expansion, working closely with the local franchisees to ensure the quality that has made the brand a “haus” name in Southern California is preserved.“As excited as we are about our growth, in truth the number of franchises we sell is important only if the quality of the experience is maintained,” Says Riaz. “We started Dog Haus because we wanted to offer guests something better than what previously existed in the category. We’ve been successful in that regard and plan to continue building upon that commitment as we grow.”About Dog HausDog Haus is a craft casual hot dog concept known for its high quality hot dogs, sausages, burgers, shakes, and beer program that spotlights local brews. Founded by partners Hagop Giragossian, Quasim Riaz and André Vener with a passion for creativity, quality and commitment to community, the first Dog Haus opened in Pasadena, California in 2010. The fast casual concept has since made a name for itself with its signature 100% all-beef skinless Haus Dogs, Haus Sausages and 100% natural Black Angus beef burgers on grilled King’s Hawaiian Rolls. Open for lunch and dinner daily, guests can choose from signature Haus creations or customize their own from a selection of more than 40+ quality toppings. In addition to its seven franchise restaurants, Dog Haus currently operates two company-owned locations in Pasadena.

MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) – Employees at the Iowa Veterans Home have been disciplined more than 20 times for personal protective equipment lapses that potentially exposed residents and staff to coronavirus.Commandant Timon Oujiri said Monday the strict approach to requiring masks and other equipment when interacting with residents and colleagues has helped keep coronavirus largely out of the state’s biggest nursing home.He says 25 employees and seven residents have tested positive since the beginning of the pandemic and all have recovered. Oujiri says he considers that a major success, noting that the Marshalltown home has 456 residents and 900 employees.Still, there have been numerous policy violations.He confirmed that five employees have received three-day suspensions for showing a “complete disregard of PPE” that results in “repeated exposure to residents and staff.”He says five others have received one-day suspensions for exposing residents, and nine have received written reprimands for exposing staff. Two employees were terminated during probationary periods.Records show one of the suspended employees was seen on surveillance video interacting with residents on three occasions in April without a mask.A state lawyer has ruled that discipline was just, noting that staff negligence infected two residents who had to be transferred to the Des Moines Veterans Affairs hospital.
Pittsburgh’s Maurice Ffrench, center, runs away from Albany’s Tyler Carswell (2) and Ryan Lape (56) on his way to returning the opening kickoff of an NCAA football game, Saturday, Sept. 1, 2018, in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Keith Srakocic) See Great Danes vs Panthers on Twitter Maybe, but Pickett is growing up quickly. Narduzzi believes the rest of his team is too.Pickett threw for two touchdowns and ran for another in a flawless first half and the Panthers used an early outburst to coast past Albany 33-7 on Saturday. A year ago, Pitt jumped to a 21-point lead over Youngstown State in Week 1 before needing overtime to survive.There was no drama this time. Though Pickett cooled off after halftime, the defense did not, allowing Pitt to avoid a misstep before a showdown with in-state rival and 10th-ranked Penn State next weekend.“We talked about (a letdown) not happening and we came out in a different fashion,” Narduzzi said. “That shows our kids and hopefully shows everybody that this is a different football team. We didn’t just go out there and settle for less again. I think we’re just going to keep getting better.”Nine months removed from a stunning upset of second-ranked Miami in his first collegiate start, Pickett picked right up where he left off. The sophomore completed his first 13 passes and finished 16 of 22 for 154 yards. He hit Rafael Araujo-Lopes twice for scores in the second quarter, the first on a 3-yard lob and another on a 42-yard catch-and-run in which Araujo-Lopes did most of the work.Pickett came back to earth a bit in the second half, in more ways than one. He threw an interception in the red zone to thwart one scoring drive and fumbled after a misguided attempt to hurdle a pair of Albany defenders while trying to scramble for a first down.“I think the first thing I said to Kenny at the beginning of the second (half) on the sidelines when he was warming up, I said, Listen, you do not take a hit, so you go down,’” Narduzzi said. “So what’s he do? He goes up. He must have misunderstood down and up.”Pickett, who finished 16 of 22 for 154 yards passing with two touchdowns and the interception and added 42 yards rushing, isn’t worried about making the same mistake again.“I think I might have to retire that move,” Pickett said.HOUSE CALL Twitter Ads info and privacy 174 ACC Digital Network✔@theACCDN FFRENCHISFFAST What a way to start the year for @Pitt_FB!Panthers win 33-7#H2P #MustSeeACC (@MauriceFfrench) PITTSBURGH (AP) — For all of sophomore quarterback Kenny Pickett’s precocious talent, Pittsburgh head Pat Narduzzi is quick to issue a reminder that in terms of Pickett’s career, he’s just “a baby.” 6:35 PM – Sep 1, 2018 Pitt wide receiver Maurice Ffrench returned the opening kickoff 91 yards for a touchdown, an auspicious debut for a return unit trying to replace All-American Quadree Henderson. Ffrench, who later added a 9-yard touchdown run, praised his blockers for allowing him to sprint downfield practically untouched.“Just how we practiced it,” Ffrench said. “Perfect execution, which we’ve been preaching as well to execute and try to do the little things right. It felt like I was in track, the 100-meter dash, just run.”UNHAPPY HOMECOMINGAlbany head coach Greg Gattuso, a Western Pennsylvania native and former Pitt assistant coach, called the experience “great” even if the result left a lot to be desired.There were some bright spots for the Great Danes, who are looking to bounce back from a 4-7 season in 2017.Vincent Testaverde, son of former NFL quarterback Vinny Testaverde, passed for 263 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions in his first start for Albany. Dev Holmes caught nine passes for 148 yards but the Great Danes were never really in it after the early barrage.“I’m disappointed we didn’t start better and put more pressure on them,” Gattuso said. “In a game like this, you have to put more pressure on the opponent.”BIG PICTUREAlbany: Testaverde gives the Great Danes a legitimate threat at quarterback. The fifth-year senior didn’t wilt in the face of near constant pressure and showcased his arm on several occasions. If he can stay healthy — he left briefly in the fourth quarter after taking a sack — Albany should be considerably more dangerous than the team that averaged just 17 points a game in 2017.Pitt: The running game could be back. The Panthers rolled up 238 yards on the ground, including a game-high yards by senior Qadree Ollison. Ollison switched from No. 37 to No. 30 this season to honor his late brother Rome Harris, who died a year ago.UP NEXTAlbany: Begin Colonial Athletic Association play next Saturday at Rhode Island. The Great Danes fell to the Rams 31-14 last season.Pitt: Try to beat No. 10 Penn State for the second time in three years when the Nittany Lions visit Heinz Field next Saturday. The Panthers upset Penn State 42-39 at home in 2016.___More AP college football: https://apnews.com/tag/Collegefootball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25
Crosby opened the scoring in the first period and his second goal of the season was the winner. Crosby moved from the left boards, slipped the puck through a defender’s legs, moved past Oilers goalie Cam Talbot and lifted a backhand shot over Talbot’s glove for the win.“I’m going out there every night to try and create things, and come up with big plays when they’re needed,” Crosby said. “I’m not any different than (McDavid) is as far as understanding my responsibility, and wanting to be at my best.”Despite the hype ahead of the matchup that pitted two of the game’s brightest stars in McDavid and Crosby, Pittsburgh head coach Mike Sullivan said Crosby just put his head down and got the job done.“He doesn’t really get caught up in a lot of the story lines from game to game regardless of who we play,” he said.“He’s just a real good player that tries to be the best that he can be. I thought he had a great game, he gets two goals. The overtime goal was one of the prettiest goals that I’ve seen.”Jamie Oleksiak and Patric Hornqvist also had two-goal games for the Penguins, who have won two straight.Leon Draisaitl and Alex Chiasson each scored twice, while Connor McDavid had the other for the Oilers (3-3-1), who lost their second straight.“I felt that we deserved those two points tonight,” Oilers forward Milan Lucic said.“I think we are trending in the right direction as far as our game goes. We are starting to get contributions from other guys throughout the lineup. I feel we are one mistake less from taking that stride to that next level.”Matt Murray had 41 saves in the win, while Talbot kicked out 25 shots in the loss.The Penguins started the scoring 11 minutes into the first period on the power play as Crosby tipped home a Kris Letang shot that was going wide past Talbot. It was Crosby’s first goal in seven games, the longest he had gone without a goal to start the season in his 14-year career.Edmonton tied the game just over a minute into the second period, when Draisaitl picked up a loose puck in the slot and beat Murray with a wrist shot.The Oilers went up 2-1 a couple of minutes later when Chiasson laid a big hit in the corner and then got the puck back in front and scored while falling to the ice. It was his first goal of the season in his second game as an Oiler.Pittsburgh tied the game seven minutes into the second frame, when a nice three-way passing play was chipped in by Oleksiak.The Penguins regained the lead midway through the second when a give-away led to a goal by Hornqvist.The see-saw second continued with Edmonton pulling even when Chiasson scored his second of the game on a 2-on-1 with five minutes left.The Penguins made it 4-3 in the final minute when a puck went in off of Hornqvist’s skate for his second of the game.Edmonton took the lead again early in the third on a pair of power plays as McDavid put a shot past Murray and then set up Draisaitl for his second of the night.Pittsburgh tied it up once again seven minutes into the third on a slap shot by Oleksiak.NOTES: The Penguins have points in five straight games. … Edmonton hasn’t had a regulation win over Pittsburgh since Jan. 10, 2006, although the last seven games between the two squads have now been decided by a single goal. … The Oilers were winners in their home opener last Thursday when they beat Boston 3-2 in overtime, but were then shut out 3-0 by Nashville.UP NEXTPenguins: Continue a Western Canadian road swing in Calgary on Thursday.Oilers: Close out a four-game homestand against the Washington Capitals on Thursday.___More AP NHL: https://apnews.com/tag/NHL and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Edmonton Oilers’ goaltender Cam Talbot (33) reacts as Pittsburgh Penguins’ Sidney Crosby (87) scores during the first period of an NHL hockey game, Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2018 in Edmonton, Alberta. (Codie McLachlan/The Canadian Press via AP) EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Sidney Crosby isn’t about to let the younger stars of the game pass him by.It was vintage Crosby on Tuesday night as he made a slick move through two defenders, skated through the slot and lifted a backhander into the net at 2:12 of overtime to give the Pittsburgh Penguins a 6-5 victory over Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers.“Listen, I’m not changing the way I play,” Crosby said.

BERLIN — German train workers have gone on strike, leading to cancellations in the country’s long-distance and commuter rail system and making tens of thousands of employees and school children late.Employees of Deutsche Bahn, the country’s biggest rail system, went on strike Monday morning for several hours after failing to reach a deal on pay in their current wage negotiations.The German news agency dpa reported that in some parts of the country such as Bavaria almost all trains came to a halt in the morning, leading to traffic congestion on the roads as people struggled to make it to work on time.The EVG labour union had called for the strike, which is a common tactic during wage negotiations in Germany.The Associated Press
