As drought hits California, long-term issues loom

By the time this column is published, Northern California may be receiving some much-needed rain, and possibly some snow. However, late-season precipitation does not change the reality that California is in one of its periodic droughts after two dry years. Major Northern California reservoirs are only about half-full due to scanty runoff from mountain snowpacks, farmers are getting tiny percentages of their normal water allotments, and local water agencies are beginning to impose restrictions on...

Oscars 2021: Daniel Kaluuya wins best supporting actor, thanks parents for conceiving him

Daniel Kaluuya was a favorite to win best supporting actor for his work in “Judas and the Black Messiah,” and on Sunday at the 93rd Academy Awards, he did just that. Given the political and cultural significance of his role as the real-life Black Panther leader Fred Hampton, you might assume his acceptance speech would continue a bit of political commentary, which it did, as Kaluuya spoke about the impact of Hampton on those he met in his brief life and others, like the actor who portrayed him. ...

Oscars 2021: This unusual Academy Awards kicks off with an unexpected start

Even before the 93rd Academy Awards officially began on Sunday, it was clear this year would be like none that had come before due to the pandemic of the past year. During the pre-show, hosts interviewed nominees for best original song while pre-recorded performances of the songs — which in years past would have been live in the broadcast — were aired. Producer Steven Soderbergh had hinted this would be more of a film than a TV show and as movie-like credits rolled across the screen in the openi...

The pitcher proceeded to replay a video of Tatís’ at-bat, and freeze...
