Dockless scooter, bike companies get 3-month reprieve from stricter regulations in LA

Los Angeles’ cavalcade of dockless scooters and bikes will avoid stricter requirements, including new fees and a requirement for locks, at least until the end of the year while the Los Angeles Department of Transportation irons out several key regulations for the fledgling industry. The Los Angeles City Council’s transportation committee technically approved a series of proposed regulations by the LADOT this week, but it delayed the rollout until Dec. 31 and sent the toughest rules back to the d...

Martin Kaymer checks his highlight film, makes another one at PGA Championship

You can call this a comeback. He hasn’t been here for years. Not even Martin Kaymer could easily recognize the fellow who was the No. 1 golfer in the world, who won the PGA Championship 10 years ago and ran away with the U.S. Open six years ago, who drilled the winning putt for Europe in the 2012 Ryder Cup and won the Players Championship in 2014. But he was quite familiar with his lookalike, the one who spent a forlorn week as an alternate to the Open Championship field at Royal Portrush and ne...

Rams’ Robert Woods gives vote of approval to NFL initiative

When NFL players raised their voices about racial justice at the height of nationwide demonstrations in June, Rams wide receiver Robert Woods said talk was nice but it was time for “action” and get-out-the-vote drives should be part of it. So Woods was pleased with the league’s announcement Thursday of an initiative called NFL Votes to encourage voter registration and participation in the Nov. 3 elections. Woods said he might make personal appearances to encourage young people to register. “I th...

BMC’s mid-level (but race-ready) 29er hardtail mountain bike gets an all-new frame, aimed at tackling more aggressive trails without giving up the responsive power transfer it’s known for. The brand’s Tuned Compliance Concept (TCC) uses flat seatstays, a D-shaped seat tube and post, and even the wheel and tire spec, to tame the rough stuff.

Why so many fouls in the NBA bubble? Theories abound

Whistle while you work: If the NBA restart has a theme song so far, it would be the high-pitched sound of foul calls.

Yet, through 19 restart games, teams were getting called for 52 fouls per game, according to the Athletic.

What LA County stands to lose or gain in a new federal stimulus bill

With a self-imposed deadline on Congress looming this week to agree on a new federal stimulus bill, it was unclear Thursday just how close lawmakers might be from closing the oceans of difference between their opposing proposals. Negotiations were continuing into the night as local leaders followed the developments closely. There is much at stake in Los Angeles County where hundreds of thousands of people remain jobless and businesses have been hit hard by an economic slowdown. The initial CARES...

This is especially so for those stories that are obscure or little known and even more so when the defiance occurred in opposition to the Japanese military forces, notorious for their brutality and terror tactics. “The Indomitable Florence Finch: The Untold Story of a War Widow Turned Resistance Fighte...

Murphy’s Pinch-Hit HR Lifts Rockies Over Giants 6-4

DENVER (AP) – Daniel Murphy hit a two-run, pinch-homer during a five-run seventh inning to lead the Colorado Rockies over the San Francisco Giants 6-4 on Thursday.

Anderson was Colorado’s opening day starter in 2019, but knee surgery in June ended his season after going 0-3 with an 11.76 ERA. The Giants picked him up off waivers in October, and Thursday was his second start in four gam...
