It’s news whenever Major League Baseball’s players and owners agree to anything of substance these ...

Why do some California counties get COVID-19 vaccines into arms faster than others?

California is pushing shots into arms at a much faster clip than it was just a month ago — closing in on the national average, with vows to accelerate even further — but the pace of COVID-19 vaccinations varies greatly from county to county within the Golden State. A Southern California News Group analysis of state data found that smaller counties with fewer people and less complicated logistics are leading the pack in vaccinating their residents: Little Mono, with 14,526 residents, ranked No. ...

Cold War-era spy gear to be auctioned off

James Bond reigned at the movie box office. “I Spy,” “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” and “Get Smart” were top-rated TV show. “Secret Agent Man” topped the pop charts. Boris Spassky stared at Bobby Fischer across the chess board. Pop culture of the 1950s and 1960s was steeped in trench-coats, tiny cameras and Cold War espionage. But it wasn’t mere fiction. As the United States and Russia maintained a frigid relationship framed by the specter of nuclear war, agents around the globe plotted to snag intel...
