LOS ANGELES (CNS) - The City Council voted today to name the intersection of Fifth and Flower streets in downtown Los Angeles Ray Bradbury Square to honor the author of "Fahrenheit 451" and "The Martian Chronicles." The motion by Councilman Jose Huizar cited Bradbury's special connection to downtown Los Angeles as a reason to name an intersection there for him.

Bradbury "drew from the rich milieu of characters populating Los Angeles to fill the fantastic, imagined worlds of his literature," ate at Clifton's Cafeteria on Broadway and wrote on public typewriters in the Central Library, according to the motion.

"My father would be so proud to be honored in this way," Bradbury's daughter, Susan Nixon told the council.

Nixon said her father spent several days a week reading everything he could at the Central Library.

Huizar added that Bradbury would walk from the library to Clifton's "for lunch and to people watch." The councilman said renaming the intersection was appropriate to honor a man who was "part of the fabric of the city of L.A.," noting his support for local theater and libraries.

"Today, we want to make sure that the city Ray Bradbury loved so much honors him in perpetuity," Huizar said.

Nixon said her father's "proudest accomplishment" was working to keep libraries open.

"He loved this city so much," she said.

The motion was supported by the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council and Downtown Center Business Improvement District, Huizar said.

Bradbury, who died June 5 at the age of 91, was born in Waukegan, Ill., in 1920, moved to Boyle Heights with his family at age 13 and graduated from Los Angeles High School in 1938.

Studies have shown that high volumes are associated with high quality and better outcomes, because experience is a major factor in quality of care. Wort was traditionally prescribed in parts of Europe for depression (in addition to use as a general-purpose tea), and Chinese medicine developed elaborate lists of herbs and preparations. With the scientific revolution in Europe and the United States, the use of traditional herbal remedies fell out of favor with the mainstream medical establishment, although a few people continued to use and maintain knowledge of traditional European herblore. In the early 20th century, scientists began reassessing this rejection of traditional herbs in medicine. Vorzüge eines intakten und lebendigen Gemeinschaftslebens bewahren.

The reasons for this are practical: many individuals in these families have a large number of nevi, and complete removal of them all is not feasible, since new atypical nevi continue to develop. In addition, individuals with increased susceptibility to melanoma may have cancer arise de novo, without a precursor lesion such as a nevus.
