Facebook Oversight Board upholds Donald Trump’s suspension from the platform

One giant leap backwards for mankind

Michael Collins died last week at the age of ninety. Mr. Collins had been struggling with cancer, so his passing was not a surprise. What is surprising to those of us of a certain age, is how few people remember, or even heard of, Michael Collins. Collins was the third member of the historic Apollo 11 crew that flew to the moon and back in July of 1969. He was celebrated, bemedaled and bathed in ticker-tape. For a brief moment in time, the names Armstrong (Neil) Aldrin (Buzz) and Collins (Michae...

Why Molly Baz just might be the Abbie Hoffman of the culinary world

It seems fitting that the title smacks of Abbie Hoffman’s “Steal This Book” because super cheeky “Cook This Book” by Molly Baz is, at times, downright rebellious. The unconventional format. The slangy lingo. The well placed cuss words. A bold “let’s have fun in the kitchen” vibe became the Baz signature on Instagram — she has more than 630,000 followers — and at Bon Appétit magazine where she was a test kitchen star. (She quit in solidarity with colleagues when it was revealed that not all video...

After turbulent year, owners of San Fernando yoga studio aim to adapt to post-lockdown world

It was supposed to be the beginning of a new era for sisters Daniela and Alexandra Del Gaudio. After nearly 10 years of working long shifts and multiple jobs, they finally saved enough money to open the Wild Plum yoga and wellness studio in San Fernando just two years ago. But the pandemic wreaked havoc on their business venture. They closed the Wild Plum in March of last year certain they would reopen in two weeks. But the closure dragged into months amid strict health orders. A year later, aft...

After gut-punch of a year, Angelenos eager for dose of hope during Garcetti’s State of City talk

Tricia Helton, who worked as a manager for the homes of affluent Angelenos and celebrities, was hired more than a year ago to oversee the house of a Brentwood family. After COVID-19 pandemic “Safer at Home” rules kicked in, that job went away. Without an income, the 48-year-old Studio City resident scrambled to pay her rent, and keep up payments on her car and credit cards. She was no stranger to tough times; she spent some of her 20s homeless. “So I know how to make a dollar stretch,” she said....

Instagram, Facebook users could soon hide ‘like’ counts

By Barbara Ortutay | The Associated Press The tiny red hearts that appear under Instagram photos of kids, kittens and sandwiches can be a source of stress for many users, an insidious way of measuring self-worth and popularity. Now Facebook says it’s going to test out — again — an option for users to hide those “like” counts to see if it can reduce the pressure of being on social media. Instagram, which Facebook owns, will soon allow a small group of random users to decide whether or not they wa...

Why the Agua Caliente Casinos are embracing art as a way to draw in visitors

Look at the location tag for Agua Caliente Resort Casino Spa Rancho Mirage on Instagram and there are loads of recent pictures of people posing in front of a desert fan palm tree rising up from the desert landscape at sunset. However, it’s not a real desert scene, but rather a new mural from artist Autumn Martino that sits next to one of the resort’s elevators near the hotel lobby. The piece is one of several seasonal installations that have gone up as the resort seeks to use art as a way to not...

Friends in need or in need of friends?: Doug McIntyre

As of this paragraph, Mark Zuckerberg says I have 4,495 friends on Facebook. But I’m much more popular than that. You see, I have three Facebook pages. On my second page, I have another 3,024 friends. On page three, there’s 1,496 more. So, collectively I’ve managed to accumulate 9,015 social media chums, 25 of whom I have actually met. But even this doesn’t begin to reflect the enormity of my personal popularity. “Mr. Charisma” has expanded his reach beyond Facebook. On Twitter, 1,117 people fol...

Angels reliever Ty Buttrey says he ‘lost the drive’ to continue MLB career

Ty Buttrey said that he accomplished what he wanted when he reached the major leagues, and it was now time to work toward something else. Buttrey walked away from his big-league career this week, when he declined an assignment to the Angels’ alternate sign and was placed on the restricted list. Buttrey, 28, had pitched parts of three seasons with the Angels, at times as their best reliever. He explained in an Instagram post published Saturday that he no longer felt the drive needed to play in th...

Want a picnic without the work? Someone can do that for you

Gloria Malaihollo straightened and smoothed out a white rug under a long and low wooden table topped with plates, utensils and candles set up on the sand near the Redondo Beach pier. Pillows were placed next to the table for seating under an umbrella staked securely into the sand to provide shade. The luxurious picnic setup stood out so much among the standard beach blankets and folding chairs that a few people walking by stopped to snap photos. But Malaihollo wasn’t gearing up for a nice relaxi...

Video shows vicious attack of Asian American woman in NYC

By MICHAEL R. SISAK and KAREN MATTHEWS NEW YORK (AP) — A vicious attack on an Asian American woman near New York City’s Times Square is drawing widespread condemnation and raising alarms about the failure of bystanders to intervene amid a rash of anti-Asian violence across the U.S. A lone assailant was seen on surveillance video Monday kicking the 65-year-old woman in the stomach, knocking her to the ground and stomping on her face, all as police say he shouted anti-Asian invectives at her.

Leigh Bardugo talks ‘Rule of Wolves,’ Netflix’s ‘Shadow and Bone’ series and heroic women

When Leigh Bardugo finished “Ruin and Rising,” the third book in her Shadow and Bone trilogy published in 2014, she wanted a break from the Grishaverse, the Russian-inflected fantasy world that she had been building in her novels. A billboard changed all that. The L.A.-based author didn’t actually want to see what was being advertised — the film “The Monuments Men” — but it got her thinking about “Oceans 11” and that generated another idea. “I had to pull over to the side of the road because I r...

How El Monte and the San Gabriel Valley inspire writer Carribean Fragoza’s writing

As a journalist, Carribean Fragoza has focused her keen sense of observation on stories about subjects ranging from gentrification in Boyle Heights to fitness classes in El Monte. “I’m always amazed by the wildness of the world, the actual, factual world,” she says. “The world is full of real stories that are amazing all by themselves. They don’t need my imagination to do anything to them.” Last year, her essay, “All the Zumba Ladies: Reclaiming Bodies and Space Through Serious Booty Shaking,” a...

How this novel illustrates a girl’s bittersweet coming of age in the 1990s

While pregnant with her only child, Forsyth Harmon’s mother heard a voice that declared her baby would grow up to become an author and an illustrator. And she did. “The voice I heard as I was growing up was my mother’s, and I very much wanted to make her premonition come true,” says Harmon, who has been an illustrator for Melissa Febos’ “Girlhood” and with Catherine Lacey on “The Art of the Affair.” Now Harmon has added writing to the mix with “Justine,” her slender novel about an adolescent...

Desert X, the expansive outdoor art biennial in the Coachella Valley opening Friday, March 12,  is one of the first large scale public California arts events to take place in the wake of the novel coronavirus pandemic. And while the artworks that will be exhibited across a 40-mile stretch of Coachella Valley weren’t conceived in reaction to the global crisis, the two-month long public art event can’t ignore it either. “It’s not a show about the pandemic, but inevitably it is a show shaped by one...

Hoornstra: Baseball as scripted television takes another turn ‘On Deck’

Petco Park hosted the 2016 All-Star Game. Like a lot of young men in San Diego who grew up playing and watching baseball, Alex Bentley was eager to get inside. He once snuck into Comic-Con. He’d meandered onto a few movie sets in his day. But he was about to live out a fantasy too wild to be real. “Long story short, I get into the (American League) clubhouse,” Bentley said. “I tell the attendant I need a uniform (because) the Royals’ catcher might let me catch the Home Run Derby.

In 1949, toddler Kathy Fiscus fell down a San Marino well, launching the age of live TV news

In 1949, three-year-old Kathy Fiscus fell down an abandoned well in San Marino. The accident led to a weekend-long rescue effort that was broadcast live on local television and became national news. The ordeal would end tragically – by the time that rescuers were able to reach her, the little girl had died – and the event reshaped media, and American culture, in the process. USC professor William Deverell has long been fascinated by this story and that has resulted in his new book, “Kathy Fiscus...
