Whicker: Onyeka Okongwu brings a familiar game to the Atlanta Hawks

When someone begins to describe a basketball player as “The next …”, it’s time for the mute button. Adam Morrison wasn’t the next Larry Bird. Eddy Curry wasn’t Baby Shaq. Brandon Ingram, certainly a notable player, won’t ever be Kevin Durant. And if you never heard of Johnny Neumann, you missed his failure to become Pete Maravich. The “comps” are shorthand. They usually deal in appearance, rather than essence. They also irritate the heck out of those who are being compared. But when Onyeka Okong...

Holiday music: 8 top new Christmas albums to hear in 2020

It’s becoming increasingly clear how pop stars and other well-known musicians have spent their time during the pandemic lockdown. They’ve been recording Christmas songs. It’s amazing how many major new holiday albums and singles have been released in 2020. And it’s not like these offerings started arriving in time for Thanksgiving, which many (correctly) see as the real start of the holiday season. Some came out well before Halloween rolled around. Yeah, that’s scary. But it’s nice to see so man...

During massive budget woes, LAPD union doesn’t want to talk concessions

With a looming financial crisis threatening to swallow up all of the city’s cash reserves, Los Angeles budget officials last week sent a letter to the union representing the Los Angeles Police Department’s rank-and-file officers asking it to renegotiate pay raises agreed to just last year. The union’s response? “We have no interest in meeting over what has already been agreed upon,” wrote Craig Lally, the president of the Los Angeles Police Protective League, in his Nov. 13 letter. The back-and-...

The Port of Los Angeles broke yet another cargo record in October, but new challenges have emerged along with the historic surge, the port’s executive director said.

Southern California politicians weigh in: Was the 2020 election fair?

“DEAD PEOPLE VOTED” They didn’t, actually, but outgoing President Donald Trump tweeted that anyway, two weeks after an election in which he received nearly 6 million fewer votes than his opponent, President-elect Joe Biden. His declaration – an evidence-free claim that was flagged by Twitter as misleading – was just one of many salvos fired in the electoral faceoff he and others have waged since voting ended on Nov. 3. The sides are well known: Trump and many of his supporters insist the 2020 el...

Chargers’ Justin Herbert learns from mistakes, but his haircut isn’t one of them

COSTA MESA — Finding a good barber in a new city, especially during a pandemic, can be a challenge for anyone, but Justin Herbert didn’t want anything fancy for his first haircut in years. Herbert, the Chargers’ rookie quarterback, thought he was playing it safe when he told the strength and conditioning coach John Lott he wanted just a trim. But there’s a reason why people wait hours for a specific barber and avoid eye contact with the newest barber at the back of the shop with an open chair. “...

Dodgers implement layoffs after financial losses of 2020

A World Series championship could not insulate the Dodgers from the financial realities of 2020. The Dodgers instituted layoffs “throughout the organization” on Wednesday, joining a number of MLB teams in making cuts as a result of the revenue losses suffered during the coronavirus pandemic. The job cuts are believed to be at least 40 to 50 in all, from virtually every department.

Comment on spinach and chickpeas by Chelsea

So good! I would say this can be used as more of a guideline than a specific recipe – I definitely just threw in somewhat close amounts of the ingredients, and it was delicious. Highly recommend including the fried bread! I didn’t do the mashing or blending and it still worked out great.
