Most LAUSD students won’t have to take Smarter Balanced standardized tests

For the second year in a row, most Los Angeles Unified students — with the exception of 11th graders — won’t be taking the Smarter Balanced standardized test that’s usually mandated by the state each spring. The decision reflects the district’s desire to maximize the remaining weeks of the school year on instructional time as students transition back to in-person learning, said Alison Yoshimoto-Towery, LAUSD’s chief academic officer. “Our focus right now is getting students back into school for ...

L.A. County’s nursing home oversight division under scrutiny 

Resident advocates have long called for reform of the Los Angeles County public health division largely in charge of regulating and overseeing local nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. Now a recent interim report by the county’s Office of Inspector General about improving oversight and accountability in nursing homes and a final report from the county Auditor-Controller assessing the Department of Public Health’s Health Facilities Inspection Division (HFID)  have raised questions ...

Grateful Dead Fan Creates a Faithful Mini Replica of the Band’s Famous “Wall of Sound” During Lockdown

A few years ago . Not the one created in the studio by Phil Spector, but the one created by Grateful Dead tech engineer Owsley “Bear” Stanley out of over 600 speakers. Before the Dead worked to revolutionize how rock concerts could sound, the speakers at live shows were trebly, underpowered things, having not been designed for the sudden change in musical texture and sound during the 1960s. In the early days, speakers were mostly used to make sure the drums didn’t drown out the other band memb...

“Difficult” patients: Is it them or is it us?

It was past midnight in the ED, and she was writhing on the bed, palms clutched over her abdomen. I pulled up a stool, notebook, and pen in hand. I was ready to listen to Mrs. Walker’s story. But I also felt a sense of dread rising: From a quick chart review, I knew that […] Find jobs at Careers by KevinMD.com. Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now. Learn more.

Listen to ABBA’s “Dancing Queen” Played on a 1914 Fairground Organ

To truly appreciate the spectacle of ABBA’s “Dancing Queen” played on a 1914 Hooghuys fairground organ, we recommend you read Angus Harrison’s 2016 VICE essay, “Why Abba’s ‘Dancing Queen’ Is the Saddest Record Ever Made“: Make no mistake. This song is about the dancing queen, but it is most definitely not sung by her. Herein lies the tragedy. Our narrator has realized that she is no longer the Dancing Queen. She is no longer young, no longer sweet, no longer 17. Now, instead, she watches...

Exquisite Watercolors of Demons, Magic & Signs: Behold the Compendium Of Demonology and Magic from 1775

Noli me tangere, says the title page of the Compendium of Demonology and Magic: “Do not touch me.” For the book’s target audience, one suspects, this was more enticement than warning. Written in Latin (its full title is Compendium rarissimum totius Artis Magicae sistematisatae per celeberrimos Artis hujus Magistros) and German, the book purports to come from the year 1057. In fact it’s been dated as more than 700 years younger, though to most 21st-century beholders a book from around 1775 carri...
