Pay with your face: Pasadena restaurants, shops tap into PopPay network

More than 25 restaurants and retail shops in Pasadena have tapped into a “face-pay” network that allows customers to make secure, hands-free purchases using only their faces. The technology is resonating with consumers who are wary of the physical exchange of credit and debit cards during the COVID-19 pandemic, although others are less comfortable with the idea of facial recognition. PopID, a Cali Group company, debuted its PopPay service Friday. It follows the rollout of the Pasadena company’s ...

Chargers’ Sam Tevi in driver’s seat to start at left tackle

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn called Sam Tevi the starting left tackle, but said it’s an open competition with second-year lineman Trey Pipkins. “He’s the starter over there right now on the left side,” Lynn said about Tevi on Friday after the team’s first full-speed workout of training camp. “He’s played left before. He’s been on the right for us the past couple years. But we expect Trey to step up. Yeah, it’s a competition, but like I said, Sam Tevi is in the driver’s seat.” Lynn pointed to Tevi...

Conservatives self-censor, and it gets worse with more time spent in college

A new public opinion survey conducted by the Cato Institute examines the relationship between political views and self-censorship. The poll of 2,000 Americans ages 18 and older found that most Americans who identify as conservative self-censor, and this self-censoring gets worse with more time spent in higher education. According to the survey, 62% of Americans “say the political climate these days prevents them from saying things they believe because others might find them offensive,” up from 5...

Rams tight end Tyler Higbee tries to keep his stock on the rise

Tyler Higbee and the Rams don’t have to be reminded what a good tight end is worth to a team, not after his record-setting December nearly rescued their 2019 season. They got a reminder anyway this week when the 49ers’ George Kittle and the Chiefs’ Travis Kelce signed contract extensions that set a new bar for NFL tight ends. Kittle’s five-year contract pays him $15 million a year, and Kelce’s four-year deal averages $14.3 million. Both leapfrogged the Chargers’ Hunter Henry, who briefly was the...

Mookie Betts: Best players have responsibility to play, not be brand ambassadors for MLB

ANAHEIM — The sport’s two best players — and two of the most well-paid in its history — will be on the field together in Anaheim this weekend. But Angels outfielder Mike Trout and Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts are playing in relative anonymity when it comes to national profiles, big-brand endorsements and Q ratings. Seemingly any NFL quarterback and half of the starting players in the NBA have bigger “brands” and certainly a greater social media presence than either Trout or Betts. MLB doesn’t...

Thursday 13 August: Kingsbarns in Fife

What a day! An ace on the treacherous 15th at Kingsbarns is the stuff of fantasy! I’m glad my little brother was by my side. Jeff came by his hole-in-one several years ago at James Baird Golf Course in the beautiful hills of the Hudson Valley in upstate New York. Sadly, I wasn’t there with him that day but I’ve played that course many times through the years. His ace came on the downhill 3rd hole and I have to… Continue Reading →

Angels GM Billy Eppler expects trade market to define itself late

ANAHEIM — Although the major league season is only three weeks old, it is suddenly just a little more than two weeks from the Aug. 31 trading deadline. And no one is quite sure how that’s going to look. “I think it could create a shortened supply of players out there, and because of the quick nature of the season in general, I think you’re going to have a lot of teams waiting till the last minute,” Angels general manager Billy Eppler said. “It feels like it’s gone that way over the last decade a...
