LAUSD’s Beutner scolds state, local leaders over inconsistent coronavirus messaging

On the same day the Los Angeles Unified School District handed out its 100 millionth meal through the food relief effort it launched at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic — a grim reminder of the ongoing financial toll the public health crisis has wrought on Angelenos — Superintendent Austin Beutner continued to underscore the need to prioritize school reopenings and chided county and state officials for delivering what he called inconsistent messages.

Instead of comparing, let’s nurture the next generation of physicians

Years and years ago, everyone always walked up a mountain of snow and ice barefoot while dragging a carriage behind them to get to school, and their stethoscopes were made of bamboo. They were hard, hard times, and it was a time-honored tradition to hear the talk from our attendings about how hard training used […] Find jobs at Careers by Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now. Learn more.

Just four years ago, graduate ...

Major motion pictures need the work of writers, directors, actors, cinematographers, and a slew of other professionals besides. That group also includes researchers, whose role has until recently gone practically uncelebrated outside the industry. In 2015, filmmaker Daniel Raim brought the work of the film researcher to light with Harold and Lillian: A Hollywood Love Story, about production designer Harold Michelson and his researcher wife Lillian. “In Raim’s documentary, she talks about workin...

On being Asian American: “Where are you really from?”

As a child, I was no stranger to the medical field. In kindergarten, while my classmates brought a pet frog, a family heirloom, or their favorite toy for show-and-tell, I brought a kidney stone the size of a plum. My family unites Eastern and Western medicine; my mother is a licensed acupuncturist, and my father […] Find jobs at Careers by Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now. Learn more.

Do You Model Good Financial Behaviors For Your Kids?

“It’s amazing that parents get angry with their teens and adult children for not using a credit card wisely, but those same parents have invested nothing into helping their child understand anything about personal finance,” says Eva Baker, the founder of the blog TeensGotCents.

When the Frequency for Tuning Instruments Became a Grand Conspiracy Theory Conspiracy theories are like blockbuster Hollywood movies. Instead of the painful, confusing tedium of historical detail that meets us when we try to understand the world, they offer spectacle, clear dichotomies of good and evil, the promise of redemptive resolution. If only, say, we could rid ourselves of scurrilous figures behind the scenes, we could get back to the garden and make everything great. Or, if only we could change the frequency o...

Werner Herzog Discovers the Ecstasy of Skateboarding: “That’s Kind of My People” If Werner Herzog has ever stood atop a skateboard, cinema seems not to have recorded it. But when asked by online skateboarding magazine Jenkem to discuss the sport and/or lifestyle, he did so with characteristically little reservation. “I’m not familiar with the scene of skateboarding,” he admits in the video interview above. “At the same time, I had the feeling, yes, that’s kind of my people.” Fans will make the connection between skateboardi...
