Lakers’ Anthony Davis lands on NBA All-Defensive first team

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — In all the defensive schemes the Lakers have hatched this season, in all their looks and gimmicks, Anthony Davis has been at the heart of them. On some nights, he was the Lakers’ most physical shot blocker and rebounder. On others, he was among their best perimeter defenders, thrown onto guards and staying with them despite his 6-foot-10 size. Some nights, he was both. So it was no surprise, to the Lakers or anyone else in the NBA, when he was named Tuesday to the NBA’s ...

Can UC Riverside intercollegiate athletics be saved?

In considering the plight of UC Riverside athletics, and the possibility that the entire program – not just individual teams, or budgets within teams, but the whole thing – might be terminated, here’s a warning: Once it’s gone, it’s gone forever. For clarification, look up anyone who followed UCR football before it was discontinued after the 1975 season. Here’s another fact: A “more robust” intramural program, described as a potential replacement in the document in which UCR Athletics was placed...

How Tibetan Buddhists helped me seek enlightenment at Howard Jarvis’ house

Want to stop worrying about California’s future? Go say a prayer at Howard Jarvis’ house. No historic plaques mark the five-bedroom home at 515 N. Crescent Heights Blvd. in L.A. But this is where the famed anti-tax activist Jarvis lived and organized Proposition 13, the 1978 tax-limiting ballot initiative that still dominates California politics. Another fall fight over changing Proposition 13 is underway. The November ballot’s Proposition 15 proposes to lift Proposition 13 caps on taxing commer...

Assembly Bill 890 would ease medical shortages

One of the bright spots of the legislative session was the passage of a bill that would give nurse practitioners – advanced-degree nurses who provide comprehensive care – the ability to practice without doctor supervision. The bill was needlessly controversial because of opposition from the California Medical Association. Because of the stress it has placed on the medical system, COVID-19 has illuminated pre-existing shortages of health care providers, especially in rural areas. Assembly Bill 89...

A new kind of pollution — wildfire smoke — can cause health issues

It’s a domino effect Southern Californians know all too well: When there’s extreme heat, there are fires. And when there are fires, there’s smoke. And when there’s smoke, there is insidious air pollution. The pattern, caused by four fires still burning in Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Riverside counties, is producing columns of smoke that collapse, spreading lung-damaging soot for hundreds of miles. After record-breaking heat and explosive fires over the Labor Day weekend, lingering fire cloud...

Joe Maddon gives Matt Thaiss a shot at second base to get his bat in the lineup

Apparently Matt Thaiss was doing something pretty impressive at the plate while working out with the Angels reserves in Long Beach. Joe Maddon put Thaiss at second base, a position that he’s never played as a professional, because he wanted to get his bat in the lineup on Tuesday night against the Texas Rangers in Arlington. Thaiss is primarily a first baseman, and he can play third. “We don’t have that many games left,” Maddon said. “If you’re going to take a chance, now is the time. Who knows?...
