LA County leaders seek faster release of FEMA funds to help extend hotel rooms for homeless

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday, Feb. 9, to lobby the federal government to more quickly fund the sheltering people experiencing homelessness in programs such as Project Roomkey — if not provide the funding upfront. The approval of the motion, authored by Supervisors Janice Hahn and Hilda Solis, comes on the heels of the Biden Administration’s announcement last month that the Federal Emergency Management Agency would provide 100% reimbursement, rather than the typical 7...

LA County vows to increase equity for coronavirus vaccines in hardest hit areas

One of the key aspects health officials tried to rely on to ensure the coronavirus vaccine reaches people in communities hardest hit by the virus involved using dozens of federally qualified health clinics specially tailored to provide care in underserved areas.

Alan Watts Reads “One of the Greatest Things Carl Jung Ever Wrote” Carl Jung founded the field of analytical psychology more than a century ago, and many reference his insights into the human mind and condition still today. Alan Watts certainly did his bit to keep the Jungian flame alive, whatever the outward differences between a Swiss psychiatrist and an English interpreter of Taoism, Hinduism, and Buddhism, especially of the Zen variety. Both men believed in casting a wide spiritual net, all the better to e...

More than 40 years after Norman Rockwell’s death, the question of whether his paintings are realistic or unrealistic remains open for debate. On one hand, critical opinion has long dismissed his Saturday Evening Post-adorning visions of American life as sheerest fantasy. “A little girl with a black eye, an elderly woman saying grace with her grandson, a boy going to war: Rockwellian scenes represent a certain sentimental America — an ideal America, or at least Rockwell’s ideal,” says a 2009 NPR...
