Santa Barbara, CA - March 14, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

California investor Ken Slaught not only dedicates his time to the growth and development of the Santa Barbara community, but also serves various humanitarian causes throughout the county including at the Hospice of Santa Barbara, where he promotes the good work of those who help people at the end of life. As he continues to educate the broader public of the importance of social support, particularly for people who have experienced the loss of their beloved ones, Slaught has recently promoted Hospice of Santa Barbara’s Anticipatory Grief Services program on his blog at KennySlaught.com.

Hospice of Santa Barbara provides a wide range of compassionate care services to individuals facing terminal and chronic illness, as well as to their families. Many of the programs at the organization focus on the needs of children and youth as they struggle with the impending or recent passing of a close family member or friend. About 20 percent of children experience the death of a loved one before they turn 18, and one in 20 children must face the loss of one or both parents before they reach adulthood. Hospice of Santa Barbara endeavors to provide individuals in these situations with free support through a number of programs. This support helps individuals cope with grief to avoid or mitigate depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Ken Slaught recognizes that both individuals facing death and their loved ones have to deal with anticipatory grief as the unavoidable draws near. He notes an unmatched level of professionalism and compassion that the dedicated staff of Hospice of Santa Barbara has demonstrated to help loved ones and people with terminal illnesses confront and deal with this grief in constructive ways so that they can enjoy their final days together with minimal stress and anxiety. Facing this grief directly can improve communication between loved ones and lay the foundation for saying what needs to be said and achieving a sense of closure, which can ease the grieving process after the loss occurs.

Founder of Investec Real Estate Companies, Ken Slaught has been in the industry for more than four decades. A dedicated investment strategist, he manages more than 3 million square feet of property throughout California. With total transactions valued above $1.2 billion, Investec has grown to become one of Santa Barbara’s leading real estate firms. An avid philanthropist, Mr. Slaught is involved with many non-profit and community organizations, including Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation and the Music Academy of the West. Contributing to the benefit of youth in the area, he dedicates considerable time to these and other worthy causes.

Sep 22, 2018

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — India was rarely tested in a dominating eight-wicket win over traditional rival Pakistan in their group match of the Asia Cup Wednesday. At Dubai International Stadium, captain Sarfraz Ahmed's decision to bat first after winning the toss backfired when a disciplined Indian bowling attack wrapped up the Pakistan innings for a meagre 162 in 43.1 overs. India's reply was led by its rampant captain Rohit Sharma, who raced to 52 in just 39 balls and added 86 runs in 13 overs with Shikhar Dhawan for the opening stand. They achieved the target in the 29th...

Cricket rivalry resumes as Pakistan plays India at Asia Cup

Sep 22, 2018

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed is taking nothing for granted as one of the most famous rivalries in world cricket resumes Wednesday when his team plays India in an Asia Cup group match. The United Arab Emirates has been the host venue for Pakistan in international cricket since a 2009 attack on the Sri Lankan team bus. Pakistan won the last encounter between the two rivals — a huge 180-run victory over India in the final of the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy. But Ahmed, who has won 18 out of 25 games as Pakistan's ODI captain,...

Galatasaray beats Lokomotiv on return to Champions League

Sep 22, 2018

ISTANBUL — Galatasaray returned to the Champions League in style on Tuesday, beating Lokomotiv Moscow 3-0. After spending two seasons outside Europe's premier club competition, the Turkish champion beat its Russian counterpart with high-tempo tactics and swift counterattacks in the Group D game.

In a stadium famously hostile to visiting teams, with the crowd roaring, Lokomotiv 'keeper Guilherme got a hand to the ball, but couldn't stop it.

Sep 22, 2018

CAIRO — The Pharaohs have at last given Egyptians something to cheer about and, not surprisingly, Liverpool's Mohammed Salah played a big part in it. A record seven-time African champion, the Pharaohs thrashed Niger 6-0 in African Cup of Nations qualifying on Saturday, their first competitive match since their miserable run in the World Cup in Russia where the team lost all three group matches. It was also the Pharaohs' first win in nearly a year. Egypt last won a competitive match in October when Salah converted from the spot in injury time against Republic of Congo for a 2-1...
