Woodland Hills street becomes chanting ground for LA teachers strike supporters

Dozens of students, parents and teachers took to the streets in Woodland Hills Friday to show their support for Los Angeles teachers who are expected to go on strike Monday. Daneh Gallo, a fifth-grade teacher from Welby Way Elementary School, in West Hills, said she was not concerned about a pay raise but rather about her class size. “I had kids who were on a suicide watch and kids who were depressed,” she said, adding that with social media “the essence of our jobs has changed, but the district...

Philip Glass Finishes His David Bowie Trilogy, Debuting His Lodger Symphony

Sometimes I feel The need to move on So I pack a bag And move on Move on --David Bowie, “Move On” We might have been calling it the Lake Geneva Trilogy, given David Bowie’s recuperative sojourn in Switzerland after the emptiness he felt in L.A.

But they were almost all written in, around, and about Berlin, where Bowie found what he was looking for—a ...

Anticipated LA Unified strike has some parents planning to pull their kids out of school

It was nearly 30 years ago when Yanina Nunez was a student during the last Los Angeles Unified School District strike. She was a third grader at Harbor Elementary School. Nunez remembers the nine-day strike in 1989 as chaotic. “They would send us from one class to another,” she said. “There wasn’t a lot of supervision, they would just cram us in the auditorium. We would just get there and do nothing.” Now a parent of two, Nunez doesn’t want her children to go through the same experience she did,...

Renee Moilanen: The weight of the world on our kid’s shoulders

As much as I support the idea of children walking to school, I cringe every time my third-grade son hefts his gargantuan bookbag onto his shoulders and trudges hunchbacked toward campus. Loaded up with his required laptop, lunchbox and textbooks, my son’s bookbag weighs 14 pounds. That’s nearly 25 percent of his body weight, a hefty addition on his half-mile trek to school, which is – I swear I’m not exaggerating – uphill both ways. If I had to haul an extra 30 pounds on my back to get to work, ...

The Books That Samuel Beckett Read and Really Liked (1941-1956)

Samuel Beckett, Pic, 1" by Roger Pic. Via Wikimedia Commons Clad in a black turtleneck and with a shock of white hair, Samuel Beckett was a gaunt, gloomy high priest of modernism. After the 1955 premiere of Samuel Beckett’s play Waiting for Godot (watch him stage a performance here), Kenneth Tynan quipped, ''It has no plot, no climax, no denouement; no beginning, no middle and no end.'' From there, Beckett’s work only got more austere, bleak and despairing. His 1969 play Breath, for instance,...
