Rams’ Sean McVay, Packers’ Matt LaFleur ‘battled’ – and both won

Sean McVay and Matt LaFleur have sweet memories of their year together with the Rams. The winning football. The friendship. The fun. The fights. They can laugh now about the times McVay, the Rams’ coach, and LaFleur,  the team’s offensive coordinator in those days, argued over the finer points of game plans. “You know, he and I never battled each other. Ha! Just kidding. Every day was a battle,” LaFleur said Tuesday in a video chat with reporters. “That’s what’s fun about this, though. You can c...

Democracy vs. unity? Local House members differ on why they support, or oppose, impeaching Trump

“Democracy.” Or, from those on the other side of the political aisle, “unity.” Those are the boil-it-down-to-a-word answers when local House members are asked why they favor or oppose impeaching short-timer President Donald Trump for his role in inciting insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. The unprecedented violence that on Jan. 6 led to five deaths and drove House members of both parties into hiding is sparking the equally unprecedented second impeachment of Trump. But the ideological split that ...

How to receive short low spinny topspin serve

Hi, coach! How to receive short, very low and spinny serve which bounces to my forehand side and very close to the net? If it was higher, then I would easily receive it with FH flick. If it was longer, then I would easily receive it with FH topspin. Initially the serve is slow, but when it touches  my side of the table, the ball bounces very fast, changes trajectory, gets very low which makes hard to flick. I can't topspin it because it is very low, and close to the table. I can't do swing, id e...

Coronavirus vaccination plans begin to take shape in Southern California

Public health officials in Southern California are making a big push this week to speed up COVID-19 vaccinations and make the in-demand vaccines more widely available quickly.
