Marines and Seabees are camped out on Catalina Island, repairing decaying runway at Airport in the Sky

CATALINA ISLAND — For more than two weeks Capt.

The Marines and Seabees are living in tents near the airport nestled in the hilly interior high on the island. The only access is a winding narrow road bordered in places by eucalyptus trees that act as barriers to steep drop-offs. There are dramatic views of the town of Avalon, whi...

Wills: Does a Will Give Executor Power to Sale Real Estate

My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: California. Does the executor of a will have the authority to sale real estate that belonged to the deceased person? I've had people tell me in California an executor can not sale real estate without it first going thru probate. I want my executor to be able to sale my house when I die and want to make sure I have things in order to allow him to do so without any issues. Thank you

The joy that comes from embracing trans identity shouldn't be so rare | Andy Connor

‘Gender euphoria’ is a concept whose time has come, and at this year’s Midsumma festival we got a chance to see it in full flightAs the chorus of voices lifted in the final kaleidoscopic song of Gender Euphoria, the first mainstage all-transgender show in Australian history, something rare and vital was communicated. So many trans stories are tragedies; it’s easy to miss the triumphs. So much of the world is still so stigmatising and cruel to trans people that it’s easy to overlook the joy. More...

Wordcloud of #Legalweek19 Agenda Reveals the Show’s Dominant Themes

Every year, the folks at the legal marketing and public relations firm InsideLegal analyze the agenda of the Legalweek/Legaltech conference and create a wordcloud revealing the show’s major and not-so-major themes. With the conference kicking off next Tuesday, they’ve done it again, and this year’s wordcloud reveals that the two dominant themes are … (drum roll please) … “legal” and “technology.” That might sound anticlimactic for a conference about law and technology. But it is notable for sho...

"It just beggars belief that the same liberals who fret about 'micro-aggressions' for 20-somethings were able to see 16-year-olds absorbing the worst racist garbage from religious bigots..."

"… and then express the desire to punch the kids in the face. How did this grotesque inversion of the truth become the central narrative for what seemed to be the entire class of elite journalists on Twitter? That’s the somewhat terrifying question. Ruth Graham on Slate saw a 16-year-old she’d seen on a tape for a couple of minutes and immediately knew that he was indistinguishable from the 'white young men crowding around a single black man at a lunch counter sit-in in Virginia in the 1960s' or...

Copyrights and Ownership Regarding Videos by Someone Who Passed

My question is this: Who would hold the copyrights of content, mainly videos, after someone has suddenly passed away? How about if the user is a minor or under 13? Would any copyrights automatically go to the parent(s) of the individual? Does a guardian of an estate have any relevance to copyright ownership? I ask in regards to archived streams that i've seen on youtube under the search ᴋᴀᴛᴇʟʏɴ ɴɪᴄᴏʟᴇ ᴅᴀᴠɪs. Would those videos of their archived streams be violating any sort of copyright?
