Here’s to 5 decades of the news biz for Dennis McCarthy (and 4 at the Daily News)

Reporter Dennis McCarthy — that’s him on the left — a few decades ago. (Photo courtesy 0f Dennis McCarthy) Fifty years as a newspaperman, that’s what I’m looking at this month.

Senior Living: The startling inequality gap that emerges after age 65

In an era when “deaths of despair” — from substance abuse and suicide — are on the rise among middle-aged Americans, those who reach age 65 are, in general, living longer than ever. But not all seniors are faring equally; those who live in urban areas and on the coasts are surviving longer than their counterparts in rural areas and the nation’s interior, according to an analysis from Samuel Preston of the University of Pennsylvania, one of the nation’s leading demographers. This troubling geogra...

Injured Clippers center Serge Ibaka is ‘progressing’

Progress is progress. Serge Ibaka missed his 22nd consecutive game Friday with what’s been described as lower back tightness, and his absence will extend for at least the Clippers’ next two road games, although the team hasn’t set a timetable for his return, Coach Tyronn Lue said Friday before tipoff in Houston. The veteran big man is making his way back, however, Lue said, employing his go-to descriptor for Ibaka’s status: “progressing.” Within the previous couple of days, Lue said Ibaka was ab...

City officials try pushing back on court order restricting LAPD use of projectile weapons

City of Los Angeles officials tried pushing back Friday, April 23, against a judge’s order that restricts the use of less-lethal weapons often used by police officers during protests. A temporary restraining order granted Monday restricts how officers can use less-lethal weapons, which fire rounds made of hard foam and rubber and have caused controversy after some people were badly injured by them during last year’s protests over George Floyd’s death. LAPD Chief Michel Moore has said that office...

Lakers keep working in Anthony Davis, gaining confidence

Anthony Davis spent the first few minutes of his first game in more than two months navigating uncomfortable territory. It had nothing to do with his right calf, which he said he barely gave much thought to Thursday night after spending the last two months strengthening and rehabbing his injury. But it did have to do with some discomfort on the right side … of the court. “I like the left block a lot more than the right, as you guys might know,” he said. “So my first three post-ups were on the ri...

Here’s what LA County is doing about the vaccine hesitant

With close to half of Los Angeles County adults now with at least one dose of coronavirus vaccine in their arms, health officials have become more confident the county will succeed in vaccinating enough people to prevent another massive surge in cases possibly taking place again like it did this winter. But while the county has made great strides so far in vaccinating workers and residents, there is a recognition that getting the second half of adults inoculated will not be as easy because they ...

Check out these spring book releases about birds, gardening and the outdoors

By JULIA RUBIN The new season of spring shows has begun, and viewership is way up by all accounts. We’re not talking about screens, which we’ve all been glued to during the pandemic. Less noticed is another trend: people tuning in to nature for quieter, real-life, high-stakes drama. From new Audubon field guides, updated for the first time in decades, to a book of poetry about insects, publishers are trying to meet this moment: Not only is public engagement with nature high, but so is concern ov...
