Study: Exercise classes decrease loneliness, social isolation in older people

Older adults who joined group exercise classes before the coronavirus pandemic began experienced decreased loneliness and social isolation, with early results suggesting that subsequent online versions are also effective, according to a study by researchers at Cedars-Sinai. Researchers tracked 382 people ages 52 to 104 — with a mean age of 76.8 — during a recruitment period that started in July 2018 and ended in March, and found a 6.9% decrease in loneliness and a 3.3% improvement in social conn...

Somewhere between a Float Tube and an Evinrude

Contrary to what you think of retirement, the reward is not being able to watch Saturday morning cartoons uninterrupted, rather it’s fishing  on weekdays while all the drunken Meatheads embody cartoons as they crowd the launch ramp on weekends. After 30 years of toiling for CALFIRE, we parted on good terms and I took some  accumulated time on the books from pressing emergencies and late-night phone calls – and gifted myself a “Yak”, or fishing kayak,  and the ability to wield it in retirement wh...

Alexander: UCLA-Cal rescheduling a triumph of improvisation

The world according to Jim: • This can only happen in 2020, right? Two major conference football teams agree to play each other on less than 48 hours notice. Just try to imagine what those game plans are going to look like. Cal and UCLA are scheduled to play on Sunday at 9 a.m. in the Rose Bowl, basically latching onto each other – in a socially distanced way, of course – after their scheduled opponents, Arizona State and Utah, respectively, were forced to back out because of COVID-19 issues.

Garcia’s lead narrows in nip-and-tuck race for 25th Congressional District seat

Democrat challenger Christy Smith winnowed away at the lead of Rep. Mike Garcia, R-Saugus, in the nail-biter race for the northern Los Angeles County’s 25th Congressional District seat, according to updated results posted Friday, Nov. 13, by the California Secretary of State’s Office. Earlier this week, Smith led by 159 votes, with Garcia back on top in the race after trailing. But that margin slipped to 104 votes as of Friday.

Hospitals ready for wave of patients as coronavirus cases surge in L.A. County

The messaging from public health officials has been consistent all along. The increases in daily new cases, they said, would soon lead to more hospitalizations and ultimately deaths. And this week that started to play out. The consequences of actions weeks earlier — a birthday party attended or a gathering at a friend’s house to watch a game — were now showing up in emergency departments throughout the region once again in the form of people sick with the coronavirus. Like the ripple effects of ...

TriMet announces ‘buttoning-up’ of SW Corridor at final advisory committee meeting

Sketch of 53rd Avenue Station taken from the SW Corridor Conceptual Design Report. Last night’s final meeting of the Southwest Corridor Light Rail Community Advisory Committee was subdued. Part wake, part anecdotal post-mortem, this group of citizen-volunteers had met monthly for almost two years, and they parted without the satisfaction of knowing how their project had gone awry, or even the possibility of hugging one another other over a beer.

Museum of the San Fernando Valley gives (virtual) viewers a window to our world

How many people driving along Van Nuys Boulevard know who Isaac Newton Van Nuys was, or what William Mulholland of Mulholland Highway did to turn a desert into a valley? I’m betting not many. The Museum of the San Fernando Valley is trying to change that. From the comfort of their homes, people who tend to skew a little older escape from the anxiety of the present to relax and explore the past when the valley was young and so were they.

Of the San Fernando Valley’s 52 homicides in 2019, only Michael Kelly’s remains unsolved

On Feb. 19, 2019, a dark-colored sedan cruises north on Van Nuys Boulevard, where it cuts through row after row of squat, suburban homes in the San Fernando Valley’s northeastern corner. This is dense and historic Pacoima, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Los Angeles, with a deeply rooted Hispanic culture. The driver of the sedan, shrouded inside, drifts toward Glenoaks Boulevard. Up ahead, two young men walk across Van Nuys. It’s 8 p.m. on a Friday, cold and rainy. But there are still plenty ...

Gascón plans to reopen 4 police shooting investigations for review upon taking over as district attorney

Rams and Tyler Higbee work toward another big finish

THOUSAND OAKS — The Rams go into the second half of their schedule looking for this year’s late-season star, this year’s stretch-run spark, this year’s Tyler Higbee. It could be Tyler Higbee himself. In 2019, the tight end took advantage of improved health and increased opportunities to help revive the Rams’ offense with his record-setting stretch of pass-catching in Weeks 13 to 16. In 2020, he says he has recovered from a hand injury and hoping to earn a bigger role in the run of crucial games ...

Johnson, Thomas among Masters leaders, while DeChambeau is in danger of going home

This was the day that Bryson DeChambeau learned the flip side of hitting a golf ball out of sight. DeChambeau’s crusade to redefine driving length in professional golf has not put a dent in this Masters. On the 350-yard, par-4 third hole on Friday, he crushed a drive that landed just short of the green in left rough. But neither DeChambeau nor anyone else could find it, and he trudged back to the tee for his third shot after the lost-ball penalty and struggled to a triple-bogey seven. DeChambeau...
