Carson allows Independence day block parties despite coronavirus surge

When Brian Collins holds his annual Independence Day block party on Saturday, just as he has done for the last two decades on Carson’s Tamcliff Avenue, the event will look very different from past years. And it’s all because of the coronavirus pandemic. The street will be barricaded as usual, but largely to stop vehicles from driving down the road rather than to create space for neighbors to mingle. There will be no potluck to ensure different households don’t share food. The city banned “bounce...

British judge denies Venezuela’s Maduro gold in London bank

By DANICA KIRKA and SCOTT SMITH LONDON — A British judge on Thursday refused to give Venezuela’s Nicolás Maduro control of over $1 billion in gold sitting in a Bank of England vault, ruling that it is unlawful to give it to the socialist leader since Britain does not recognize him as president of the Latin American nation. Maduro has demanded the gold to help his cash-starved nation fight the coronavirus pandemic. But the central bank for the United Kingdom, whose government recognizes Venezuela...

California prison officials blasted for coronavirus outbreak; transfer of inmates from Chino criticized

By DON THOMPSON SACRAMENTO — California lawmakers harshly criticized state corrections officials’ “failure of leadership” Wednesday, saying they botched their handling of the coronavirus pandemic by inadvertently transferring infected inmates to a virus-free prison, triggering the state’s worst prison outbreak. A third of the 3,500 inmates at San Quentin State Prison near San Francisco have tested positive since officials transferred 121 inmates from the heavily impacted California Institution f...

Russian voters agree to extend Putin’s rule to 2036

By VLADIMIR ISACHENKOV and DARIA LITVINOVA MOSCOW — A majority of voters approved changes to Russia’s constitution that would allow President Vladimir Putin to hold power until 2036, but the weeklong plebiscite that ended Wednesday was tarnished by widespread reports of pressure on voters and other irregularities. With most of the nation’s polls closed and 20% of precincts counted, 72% voted for the constitutional amendments, according to election officials. For the first time in Russia, polls w...

Gov. Newsom Expected To Announce Reopening Rollback As Coronavirus Surges

SACRAMENTO (AP) – Gov. Gavin Newsom is hinting that he will tighten coronavirus restrictions for California’s nearly 40 million residents as a COVID-19 surge has counties rushing to close down bars and beaches ahead of the Fourth of July weekend. Newsom planned Wednesday to announce he will “tighten things up” only weeks after loosening his March 19 stay-at-home order and reopening most businesses.

Pop-up wearable tent for COVID-19 protection in offices, schools, and medical facilities

A few years back, my brother Rick Pescovitz came up with Under The Weather Pods, single-person pop-up shelters. (You may have caught Rick on Shark Tank.) Rick was sick of getting soaked at his kids' soccer games and was inspired by a portable toilet he saw by the field. Under The Weather Pods are designed for watching sports, fishing, and other outdoor events where it's raining, windy, or cold, but you are either obligated to watch or having so much fun you don't want to leave. When the pa...

With Roberts’ Assist, SCOTUS Strikes Down Restrictive Louisiana Abortion Law

On Monday, the Supreme Court delivered a win for abortion rights activists by striking down a clinic restriction law out of Louisiana. It was a five to four decision, with Chief Justice John Roberts joining the liberals in a concurring decision.  Justice Stephen Breyer, writing for the majority, called the law “almost word-for-word identical” to a Texas law the Court struck down in 2016. The Court found that that “the law offers no significant health benefit” and that it will “make it im...

How the coronavirus is devastating Southern California’s Pacific Islanders

Pacific Islanders in Southern California are dying at a higher rate from the coronavirus than any other racial group in the region and statewide, an issue advocates say is getting swept under the radar because the population is small and tends to be lumped with other ethnic groups. While coronavirus case numbers overall are lower for Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders, the death rates are disproportionately higher when the entire population is taken into account, according to the California ...

Summer may decide fate of leading shots in coronavirus vaccine race

People on six continents already are getting jabs in the arm as the race for a COVID-19 vaccine enters a defining summer, with even bigger studies poised to prove if any shot really works — and maybe offer a reality check. Already British and Chinese researchers are chasing the coronavirus beyond their borders, testing potential vaccines in Brazil and the United Arab Emirates because there are too few new infections at home to get clear answers.

‘I refuse to bow to anybody’: Rural California defies Gov. Newsom’s order to wear masks

SACRAMENTO — Perched behind the counter of his cramped memorabilia shop in downtown Placerville, co-owner Lorenzo Smith isn’t about to tell his customers they have to put on a mask. It’s a matter of principle, he isn’t convinced it’s necessary, and he doesn’t particularly care that Gov. Gavin Newsom has ordered Californians to wear them. “Most people up here do not like the governor,” said Smith, whose shop is called Hangtown Originals. “The deal is, you have no right to tell me I have to wear a...

Beyond coronavirus, what’s causing nearly 10% spike in deaths in LA County?

Deaths from all causes have spiked nearly 10 percent this year over what would normally be expected, according to a detailed analysis of provisional mortality data through mid-May by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. That equates to 2,528 more lives lost than in years past — but just two-thirds of that spike can be officially attributed to COVID-19.
