UCLA football prepares for ‘well-coached’ Stanford in finale

While the UCLA football team ruled out participating in a bowl game for this season, the Bruins still have something to play for on Saturday against Stanford in the Rose Bowl (ESPN, 4 p.m. PST). Quarterback Dorian Thompson Robinson and defensive lineman Osa Odighizuwa hope to lead the Bruins (3-3) to their first winning season since 2015. “We have a handful of seniors and you want to end on a high note going into the next year,” Thompson-Robinson said. “… I don’t think anybody took this year for...

Senior Living: With vaccine delivery imminent, nursing homes must make a strong pitch to residents

By Judith Graham, Contributing writer Imagine this: Your elderly mother, who has dementia, is in a nursing home and COVID-19 vaccines are due to arrive in a week or two. You think she should be vaccinated, having heard the vaccine is effective in generating an immune response in older adults. Your brother disagrees. He worries that development of the vaccine was rushed and doesn’t want your mother to be among the first people to get it. These kinds of conflicts are likely to arise as COVID vacci...

What public health leaders mean by ‘0% ICU beds available’

Intensive care bed availability in Southern California has been reported at 0% capacity by state and county health officials. But that alarming figure carries a big asterisk: it doesn’t mean there are no open ICU beds that day. In the context of the coronavirus pandemic’s bleakest chapter, the state Department of Public Health’s front-and-center metric, “current ICU capacity by region,” takes the actual percentage of remaining adult ICU beds each day and tweaks it to reflect the lopsided share o...

LADWP slapped with lawsuit over methane leak at Sun Valley facility

The Los Angeles Department of Water & Power has been hit with a lawsuit alleging that failure by its employees to fix a methane gas leak they were aware of for over three years — or even to inform the public of — put surrounding neighborhoods, which are largely communities of color, in harm’s way, causing residents to suffer ill health effects and other negative impacts to their life. The lawsuit, filed Thursday, Dec. 17, by attorneys representing nine residents and Pueblo y Salud, a nonprofit i...

NHL, players reach tentative deal for 56-game season that would begin Jan. 13

The NHL and its players’ union hammered out a tentative agreement for a 56-game season, pending the approval of each side’s executive committee and, perhaps most importantly, health officials, according to multiple reports on Friday.

Fauci: Coronavirus ‘surge upon a surge’ is preventable

Even as the coronavirus rips through California and the situation threatens to worsen over the holidays, vaccinations and safety measures will eventually help the state and the U.S. put the pandemic in the rear-view mirror, said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, during a virtual conversation Friday with California State University Chancellor Timothy P. White. During a 40-minute conversation, Fauci, who has been selected by President-elect J...

US clears Moderna vaccine for COVID-19, second shot in arsenal

By LAURAN NEERGAARD and MATTHEW PERRONE WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. added a second COVID-19 vaccine to its arsenal Friday, boosting efforts to beat back an outbreak so dire that the nation is regularly recording more than 3,000 deaths a day. Much-needed doses are set to arrive Monday after the Food and Drug Administration authorized an emergency rollout of the vaccine developed by Moderna Inc. and the National Institutes of Health. The move marks the world’s first authorization for Moderna’s shot...

Joe Maddon hoping for Angels to add multiple starting pitchers

Although the Angels’ improvements this winter haven’t touched the starting rotation, Joe Maddon believes help is on the way. Maddon said during an hour-long Zoom session with the media on Friday that he’s talked to new General Manager Perry Minasian just about every day, and he’s encouraged by the starting pitchers the Angels have discussed. “I like the names, and I’m optimistic that we can (make some additions),” Maddon said. “It would be plural. We probably do need more than one. That’s been t...

Football was fun at Azusa Pacific, but not when you’re the last team standing

Cornerbacks don’t usually fare too well on an island. Football teams don’t, either. Azusa Pacific University concluded its rich and rewarding 55-year football adventure this week. It did so for the same reason your 12-year-old son eventually puts away the football. Nobody else in the neighborhood could play. The Cougars wound up in Division II. That sounded like an upgrade from the NAIA, where they won the national championship in 1989. But it meant they did more traveling than a Secretary of St...

Clippers go winless in preseason but insist they’re making progress

Lou Williams suggested Thursday that the Clippers shouldn’t be judged by what they displayed during their three preseason losses, because “behind closed doors in practice, I think we’re farther along than these preseason games have shown.” That’s good for them because those three defeats – played at Staples Center, behind doors closed to fans because of the coronavirus – inspired only spotty confidence ahead of Tuesday’s regular-season opener against the Lakers. Bolstering belief: The way Paul G...

Chargers wide receiver Jalen Guyton confirmed what football fans see from their couches: Justin Herbert has a pretty deep ball. “It’s beautiful,” Guyton said after Thursday’s thrilling overtime victory over the Las Vegas Raiders. “You see how he throws the ball from the couch.

Sentencing enhancements add time to a defendant’s sentence, such as when a crime was committed on behalf of a gang or a victim suffered great bodily injury.

Rams find virus a tough opponent as they prepare to play Jets

THOUSAND OAKS — The Rams would never insult the New York Jets or tempt fate by saying so, but this was supposed to be an easy week for the NFC West leaders. No such luck. The coronavirus caused more disruption at the Rams’ practice facility Friday, forcing the team to place safety Nick Scott and tackle Bobby Evans on the NFL’s COVID-19 reserve list, keep three other players home as a precaution, and stay out of the locker-room and indoor treatment areas. Scott and Evans were declared out of Sund...

Faith leaders encourage coronavirus vaccinations among Southern California worshippers

As hospital and health-care workers across Southern California began lining up this week for the much-anticipated coronavirus vaccines, excitement over the potential antidote to the virus’s ferocious spread this winter has been dampened by skepticism over the safety, efficacy and morality of the treatments. According to a Kaiser Family Foundation poll in late November and early December, as Pfizer and Moderna prepared to roll out their vaccines, about 71% of survey respondents said they would ge...

Even after court ordered Trump administration to revive DACA, the program faces new legal challenge

For the past year, younger immigrants shielded from deportation by an Obama-era program known as DACA have seen their protection denied by the Trump administration, then restored by the courts. But the fate of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, which has made the rounds of numerous courts across the country, is back before a judge. And that means the fate of people like 16-year-old Riverside County resident Ricardo Martinez could go back into limbo. “It has felt like a roller coaster of...
