The politics of trying to keep foreign students out

It wasn’t just elite East Coast universities such as Harvard and MIT, which sued to block the federal government from penalizing their foreign students during the pandemic, that would have been affected by the Trump administration’s proposed radical changes in immigration rules. It was very much Southern California colleges as well. USC, for instance, ranks second among institutes of higher learning in the nation for the percentage of its students who are international — fully 25 percent of them...

MLB teams like Dodgers plan to bring in da noise this season

LOS ANGELES — Baseball without fans in the stands could be an ear-opening experience. A lack of crowd noise could make the real sounds of the game — vulgar and otherwise — much more audible. For pitchers like Walker Buehler (whose intensity has spilled over on live microphones both in the stadium and on broadcasts), that could mean a new level of exposure. “I’m not going to do it intentionally. But I still feel the same way about this game and I always have — excited,” Buehler said of modulating...

Joe Maddon cautions against expecting Jo Adell to join the Angels too quickly

ANAHEIM >> Joe Maddon has frequently gushed about Jo Adell during his first two camps — one in the spring and one in the summer — getting a look at the Angels’ top prospect. On Wednesday, though, Maddon pumped the brakes just a bit for anyone expecting Adell to be on the Angels Opening Day roster. “The guy’s high-ceiling all the way around,” the Angels manager said. “But he has things to work on, quite frankly. Don’t be deceived by a couple well-struck balls in a spring training game, whether it...
