For most men, getting older is a distant thought; a time when bucket-list items are crossed off the list, financial goals are accomplished, and retirement awaits. But then, one day, we wake up and realize that we're not just getting older - we are older. Workouts in the gym start to cause more aches and pains the next morning. Keeping weight off around the midsection is much harder than it once was. Stretching before an impromptu game of basketball isn't just a good idea - it's necessary for you to perform. And that gets to the crux of what men hate most about aging - the inability to perform as they used to, whether it's in the bedroom or on the basketball court.
Unfortunately, there's no avoiding the inevitable. As men age, their testosterone levels deplete, causing a slew of mid-life maladies like:
- Loss of Energy
- Lack of Interest in Sex
- Low Sex Drive
- Can't Hold an Erection
- Weight Gain
- Muscle Loss
- Hair Loss
- Nagging Injuries
If you're a man in his 30s or 40s, and you feel like you're dragging your feet through life with no upside, don't lose hope. Millions of men just like you are experiencing the same symptoms and feelings that you're suffering through. In fact, almost 75% of men live life with undiagnosed low testosterone.
Unlike those men, however, you don't have to settle for the effects of aging. There are easy, science-backed solutions available to you right now. If you're ready to reclaim the looks and feel of your prime, testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) may be for you. TRT in Fresno, CA bridges the gap between your old life with low-T and the new, more virile version of you. That's where Testosterone Optimization Program comes in - to facilitate your transition to a new life with optimal testosterone levels. With TOP by your side, you'll have the guidance and tools to get back on track with personalized TRT plans.
But to understand the life-changing benefits of TOP, you've got to first understand testosterone, the symptoms of low-T, and how TRT works to replenish this much-needed hormone.
Trust the TOP Difference
Did you know that one in five men over the age of 45 exhibit signs of low testosterone? Male testosterone levels begin dropping gradually as soon as age 30. As men age and start to question their sexual health, some of the top symptoms they report are low libido, erectile dysfunction, and delayed ejaculation. When combined, these symptoms can lead men to develop self-image issues, experience poor relationships, and even have a lower quality of life.
But for men living with low-T, a clear path has been paved toward relief. That path starts with the Testosterone Optimization Program. TOP was founded to give men with low-T a new lease on life - one that includes less body fat, fewer performance issues in the bedroom, and more energy. If you're ready to feel and look younger, it's time to consider testosterone replacement therapy from TOP.

San Jose State puts their three-game win streak on the line facing a Fresno State team that is in second place in the Mountain West Conference standings.
Fresno State is like San Jose State, as they have won three in a row. However, they unlike them, as they are 8-1, overall, and 4-1 in MWC play. They are behind Air Force, who are at 5-0 in the conference, and they do not face the Falcons this season.
After losing three in a row San Jose State has rebounded to win their last two games. Two of their wins in the last three games have come against the weaker teams in the conference and they are 4-5, overall, and 3-2 in the MWC and need two wins in their last three games to be bowl eligible. The Spartans come into this game as a slight 1.5-point home underdog with the total at 55.5.
Fresno State was at home in their last game in a 37-30 win over Boise State where Malik Sherod came up big with a 95-yard kickoff return for a TD as well as a 52-yard TD run. The Bulldogs were outgained 488 yards to 441 yards but forced two turnovers while committing one and o0nly had one penalty. Mikey Keene passed for 290 yards with a TD and an INT, Sherod rushed for a career high 132 yards, and three players had at least 58 receiving yards. six previous three games.
On the season Fresno State ranks 27th in the nation in scoring (34 ppg) and is led by their aerial attack, which ranks tied for 14th in in passing yards per game and 114th in rushing yards per game. Keene (2,238 yards 20 TD 7 INT) has been up and down in the last few games and since being sacked 11 times in the first three games he has only been sacked six times in the last five games. Sherrod (620 yards 6 TD) has rushed for at least 131 yards in two of the last three games and at least 123 yards in three of the last five games. Erik Brooks leads four players with at least 370 receiving yards with 565 yards and five TD. The Bulldogs will be facing a San Jose State defense that ranks 82nd in the nation in points against (27.4 ppg), 25th in pass defense, and 119th in run defense.

San Jose State was on the road in their last game where they put up the big goose egg shutting out Hawaii 35-0. They were up 21-0 at the half, outgained the Rainbow Warriors 468 yards to 198 yards, and forced three turnovers while only committing one. Chevan Cordeiro passed for 251 yards with two TD and no INT, Kairee Robinson went big with 152 rushing yards and two TD, and Nick Nash led the Spartans with 86 receiving yards and a cou0ple of scores. San Jose State easily covered the spread as a 10.5-point favorite and they have covered in six of their last seven games including their last four.
The Spartans rank tied for 30th in the nation in scoring (33 ppg), 67th in passing yards per game, and tied for 48th in rushing yards per game. Cordeiro (1,989 yards 13 TD 3 INT) has seven TD and no picks in the three-game win streak. Robinson (719 yards 13 TD) is averaging an impressive 6.5 yards per carry and has averaged 124.7 yards per game over the last three games. Nash (502 yards 7 TD) is the only player with more than 274 receiving yards and has four TD in the last three games. SJSU will be up against a Fresno State D that ranks tied for 39th in points against (21.7 ppg), 59th defending the pass, and 36th defending the run.
Last season at home Fresno State beat San Jose State by a TD and I see a pretty close game in this one as well. Both teams come into this game with confidence, as each has won their last three games. However, in the Bulldogs win streak they have beaten teams that have at least four conference wins while two of the Spartans last three wins have come again teams that only have one MWC win each. While Fresno State has been led by their passing attack this season, they have run the ball more in the last few games. They will do that again in this game facing a San Jose State run D that only ranks 119th in the nation. The Spartans will put up a fight at home but Fresno State is the better team and they will win and cover the spread.
Take Fresno State at -1.5.
Prediction: Fresno State -1.5
Want a second opinion on this pick?
Last season when these two conference rivals faced off the total went Under but this time around, I am leaning towards the Over. Fresno State has a solid offense that has been more balanced as of late. They will take advantage of the struggling Spartans’ run defense that only ranks 119th in the nation. They will have a big game on the ground and put up a solid point total. However, San Jose State will do the same facing a Bulldogs’ defense that has given up an average of 28.7 ppg over the last three games. Unlike last season this game will be a higher-scoring affair, so the Over is the pick.
Take the Over 55.5.
Prediction: Over 55.5

November 2, 2023 – Tina Hahn is the owner of Tina’s Wigs on Shaw and Minnewawa. She originally started her wig business in downtown Fresno in the 1970’s.
Less than a year ago, Hahn moved from a location in Fresno to her new location in Clovis. “It’s new, so it’s kind of slow,” she said.
Hahn said that in her previous location in Fresno, her store was kind of tucked away. The storefront not being easily visible resulted in a lack of foot traffic, so most customers were just word-of-mouth and regulars.
Now, at her new location in Clovis, she’s noticed a difference from her storefront being much more visible at her last location.
“Since I’ve moved out here, people just walk in,” said Hahn. “They see the sign and they just come in. It’s much better.”
Hahn said that the store has been at this location since April. Since it’s still new, it’s kind of slow. “Eventually, I believe it will be much better,” she said. “I just want Clovis people to know that I’m here.”
She also spoke about the history and origin of her business. She spoke about how in the 70’s, a lot of the wigs were made by Koreans. “I am Korean […] so, you know, I had the connection.”
In 1969, Tina Hahn was a beautician living in LA when her husband found an opportunity to buy a wig shop.
When talking about how they came to Fresno, she said, “I came here, sort of, accidental[ly].”
Her husband was passing through, and he saw a vacant store on Van Ness and Kern. She said that at the time, downtown Fresno’s main shopping center was doing really well.
She and her family moved from LA to Fresno in 1974 to open their new store. She was likely one of the first wig stores to open in the area.
In the mid-to-late 70’s, she and her husband opened a few different wig shops for years. She had a wig shop in the Manchester Center for about two decades.
Before moving her business to Clovis, he was at her most recent Fresno location since 1998—well over 20 years.
We asked Tina Hahn what she liked about having a wig business, and she spoke about the help she offers her customers. Hahn caters to a variety of customers, from cancer patients to people who just want wigs for fun.
Since she has a beautician background, Tina Hahn can also cut and style wigs for a customer’s face.
“I help them, and I find them the right ones. They kind of transform [when] they put the wig on.” said Hahn. “It makes them really happy. It makes me happy.”
Hahn said she has even made friendships with her customers, “So, I really enjoy my work.”
“You help people when they really need it,” said Hahn. “They’re shocked themselves when they come.”
Hahn said wigs look really good nowadays, “you can see how happy they are,” when they try on a wig and it completely changes their look.
“You feel really rewarded.”
Tina’s Wigs is located within Rodeo Plaza at 22 Shaw Avenue Clovis, CA 93612 on the southeast corner of Shaw and Minnewawa. The store is open from Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 5pm.
Soberal and Olguin granted release, face up to 20 years in federal prison

FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – Jake Soberal and Irma Olguin Jr., co-founders of disgraced Fresno tech company Bitwise Industries were federally charged with conspiring to commit wire fraud and taking more than $100 million from various businesses and individuals Thursday and made their first appearance in court.
The pair pleaded not guilty, and were granted release on the following conditions:
The duo, leaving court alongside their lawyers, faced public scrutiny from former employees who shouted at them.
Both Soberal and Olguin, as well as their lawyers, did not respond to requests for comment.
Before the arraignment, federal agencies laid out the charges and accusations against the former Bitwise CEOs.
“The defendants Olguin Jr. and Jake Soberal repeatedly lied to the board of directors, investors, lenders, and others about the businesses revenues and financial condition,” said U.S. Attorney Phillip A. Talbert.
Talbert, alongside partners from the FBI, IRS, and SEC, say Soberal and Olguin knew exactly what they were doing and that the lies started as late as January 2022.
They claim the duo even falsified the company’s bank statements to give off a false reality of financial success in order to gather more investments.
“In one instance they said that a company bank account had over $23 million. In reality, that account had just over $300,000,” said Regional SEC Director Monique Winkler.
Officials today allege much of the money taken went to Bitwise’s payroll and fringe benefits that included a $600,000 salary for both Soberal and Olguin.
Money also allegedly went towards company offices and to repaying debts to previous lenders.
Bitwise Industries furloughed all of its roughly 900 employees on Memorial Day and later proceeded to lay them off.
Roughly 400 of those employees were in Fresno.
“There was a lot of promise there… But as we’ve seen, the promises were not backed up,” said Talbert.
Jake and Irma will have a status hearing on Dec. 8, before their preliminary hearing on January 25.
The pair face up to 20 years in federal prison, and a $250,000 fine if found guilty.
WR Mac Dalena is living out Fresno State dream, having breakout year
247Sports Embed Resource...
247Sports Embed Resource
Mac Dalena takes something from his older brother onto the field, because his brother inspired Mac to take the field as a Bulldog.
He rocks a headband with Frank Dalena’s “Bring The Juice” podcast logo emblazoned on it. The older Dalena entertains listeners with the same energy that fired up Fresno State teammates when he played from 2015 to 2019.
When Frank’s teammates visited the family house during holidays, Mac – then an up-and-comer at San Joaquin Memorial HS – discovered a whole new world, and he wanted in.
“I honestly didn’t watch a lot of Fresno State games until my brother got there,” Mac said. “Then I saw the culture and everything in the community. That's when I started to realize how important Fresno State was.”
“Being a 16-year-old high school kid, it’s pretty cool you get to hang out with 50 college football players,” Frank said.
Mac felt part of the team before he was part of the team. Older brother encouraged younger brother to continue the family’s Bulldog legacy and write his own chapter, too.
“Now, being able to play in front of all these fans and the Red Wave,” said Mac, “it’s honestly a dream come true.”
Dalena plays out a dream he paid dues for. Seasons spent on special teams, staying the course behind the older wide receivers, are paying off.
With a significant role in the Fresno State offense, Dalena is experiencing the biggest year-to-year leap of any receiver.
Leading up to Nov. 5, 2022, he didn’t have a catch last season.
By Nov. 5, 2023 this season, he already has 32 receptions for 371 yards and two touchdowns
”I truly don't look at stats but it does feel nice, I'll tell you that, especially when you're winning,” he said, before making it clear, “I'd rather win than have a career game.”
Yet Dalena is both producing and winning, having a career season while Fresno State holds an 8-1 record and No. 25 Coaches’ Poll ranking.
“Is it a dream year? I don’t know,” Frank said. “I think he dreams pretty big.”
Leaving his own footprint
Dalena’s family lineage is well-known to Bulldog fans. His father and older brother walked onto the team, as well as his younger brother Joe. Just because they all walked the same path does not mean they walk the same way.
“I think [Frank] was definitely better at getting the team together, getting the team going, but I do try,” Dalena said. “I try to do that in the way I play.”
Instead of absorbing contact, he lowers his shoulder and initiates it. He makes sideline catches of great difficulty, even when the odds are supposed to be against him.
The 5-11, 174-pound Dalena stood opposite 6-2, 201-pound Boise State cornerback Jaylen Clark. At the snap, Dalena sprinted, turned his head and found the football floating toward his path. Clark tried muscling Dalena off his route, making a fatal mistake – he played the receiver.
Dalena played the ball, his eyes never losing sight of the prize until it settled into his hands while his right foot landed in-bounds as he fell. The completed 28-yard catch happened so smoothly and quickly that officials needed three minutes to believe what they saw, putting the play under review.
“That was Mikey [Keene] giving me a chance,” Dalena said.
Jeff Tedford and the staff gave him another. Dalena has started every game this season after making three starts in his first three years.
There are six Bulldogs with 30+ targets and Dalena is the only one without a drop. His quarterback trusts that he will make the tough catch; he leads the team in contested targets (10) and contested catches (6).
Defenses also have a tough time bringing Dalena down. He ranks second among receivers with eight forced missed tackles.
“Realize why you’re here”
His journey to becoming a starter has certainly been unique and eventful. On the very first play of his college career, he recovered a fumbled kickoff return. Two months later, he was the kicker.
Because COVID protocols kept all three kickers, three long-snappers, and the starting punter home in Fresno, Dalena assumed PAT duties against Nevada. In 2021, he memorably chased down Kazmeir Allen to prevent a kickoff return touchdown at No. 13 UCLA, one of the most pivotal plays in the 40-37 win.
Last year, he partially blocked a Wyoming punt and secured the onside kick that sealed Fresno State’s conference championship win at Boise State. Dalena appeared on special teams for every game of his first three seasons, gifted with speed that helped him earn a scholarship at a Fresno State prospect camp in 2019.
For a guy who moves so fast, taking it slow must not have been easy, but Dalena gained something valuable in the process.
“You learn patience and patience is a big thing honestly, because when you get your opportunity, you have to be ready for it,” he said.
Dalena takes pride in his work ethic and journey to this point; it makes him more confident than ever in his ability – and his future. After all, he has the 2024 season to play.
“You just have to look back and realize why you’re here, to see the plays you used to make when you were in high school. Sometimes, I’ll go back and think ‘I can make those plays.’ Then I go into practice and make those plays.”
And make the Dalena name proud.

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Ramen Hayashi at Herndon and 99 in northwest Fresno has found the recipe for success.
"A casual, real comfortable atmosphere where you could get really good homemade ramen," owner Jason Lin said.
Large pots of broth constantly boil and usually take 12-13 hours.
"We simmer it overnight. We use pork bone and some vegetables. We have a pork and a chicken option," Lin said.
"I like the eggs especially in the ramen. They are perfectly cooked. The sauce is deep and hearty and delicious. The noodles are cooked perfectly well," customer Candice Dominguez said.
"In this particular bowl is our slow braised pork belly, black ear mushroom, marinated bamboo, soft boiled egg," Lin said.
Before it soaks in your bowl, that pork belly must first sizzle.
"We gotta roll it up and then we braise it and then we marinate it in a sweet soy. After that we slice and that's when we torch it," Lin said.
The ramen warms your soul but there are many options for you as a customer.
"We call the Hokkaido ramen. It has seafood, shrimp, fish cake, scallops, spinach, shiitake mushroom, green onion,""
Lin also cooks in the kitchen when needed.
"This is a yaki ramen, which is a fried version of the ramen if you're not feeling for soup. That's the perfect way to go," Lin said.
The shrimp can be served with noodles or fried rice.
"The croquettes are not overdone. They're juicy. Potato-y. Delicious. Everything's delicious," Dominguez said.
Fried wonton is used to make a cha su pork taco with cabbage slaw and a spicy mayo.
"The salmon bowl is our grilled salmon with teriyaki sauce, sesame seed, green onion and then like a side salad with rice underneath," Lin said.
And be sure to leave room for the souffle cheesecake.
"Japanese dessert isn't as heavy or sweet. So it's a little bit lighter. It's nice and fluffy," Lin said.
