What to watch this week: Murder, comedy and TV’s new ‘Resident’

CATCH UP ON Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee: (Available on Netflix) The show directed and hosted by comedian Jerry Seinfeld recently moved to Netflix for Season 10. The premise is exactly what the title suggests: Seinfeld picks up another comedian – always in some classic roadster – and they get coffee. Along the way, the pair trade jokes and points of view. The amusing episodes can run anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes, and they are perfect to drop in on, especially when you’re in the middle of s...

Gap between super clubs like Man United, Real Madrid and rivals must be addressed

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has talked about redressing the balance between clubs but so far, it's getting worse. UEFA's Annual Benchmarking Report, released Tuesday, confirmed what many suspected: the rich are getting richer and leaving the merely well-off far behind. This is perhaps the most stark observation from the hefty study -- it runs to 126 pages -- of top-flight club football in every league across the continent. If you're even a little bit wonk-ish, the Benchmar...

Malaysia, Singapore fall to record lows in FIFA rankings

After a winless 2017, Malaysia's new head coach Tan Cheng Hoe hopes to turn around his side's fortunes. Singapore and Malaysia have slipped to new lows in the latest FIFA rankings after both endured a miserable 2017. Neither side won a fixture last year, as they fell out of contention for a place at the 2019 AFC Asian Cup. This performance was reflected in the updated list, which saw both countries drop one more spot to establish new all-time lows. Singapore now sit in 173rd place, wh...

Howard Webb promoted to top job of U.S. referees' group PRO

After three Chelsea players were cautioned for simulation against Norwich, the FC panel debate whether or not VAR should have changed some of the decisions.

YouTube deleting Tide Pod challenge videos in bid to stem dangerous detergent-eating craze

Lavish bash for California politicians and lobbyists gets a #MeToo makeover

By Laurel Rosenhall, CALmatters Each January, as lawmakers return to Sacramento from three months in their hometowns, hundreds of lobbyists and staff members join them at The Park nightclub near the Capitol to sip Moscow Mules, puff on cigars and catch up with old friends and frenemies. For more than a decade the extravagant Back to Session Bash—with cocktails flowing from ice sculptures and hip-hop beats pulsating across the dance floor—was a place to let loose. Debauchery at the bash, insiders...

Liverpool's future at goalkeeper may not currently be on their books

Shaka Hislop assesses Liverpool's current goalkeeping situation and identifies potential targets for a summer move to Anfield. There's a saying in the NFL that if you have two quarterbacks then you have none. The same applies to goalkeepers. There are exceptions of course, but most successful teams have a top goalkeeper who is a clear and undisputed No. 1. Liverpool are edging closer to becoming a successful team again and solving the uncertainty that surrounds their goalkeeping posit...

Grandmother of 13 siblings found captive in Perris: ‘They are the sweetest family’

The siblings called each other “sweetie.” They never argued. They looked healthy. And everything seemed to be fine. That’s how Betty and James Turpin remember their grandchildren from a five-day visit to California a half-dozen years ago. “We’re still in shock,” Betty Turpin said of allegations that her grandchildren were held captive, and in the wake of her son and daughter-in-law getting arrested on charges of suspicion of torture and child endangerment. “They are the sweetest family,” said Tu...

Southampton vs Tottenham predictions: Premier League preview & line-ups

101 Great Goals’ prediction: Southampton 0-3 Tottenham Tottenham to beat Southampton 3-0 is 11/2 with Paddy Power Tottenham have been in scintillating form in front of goal of late, with both Harry Kane and Heung-min Son forming a lethal duo. Meanwhile, Mauricio Pellegrino finds himself under immense pressure following his sides’ dismal run of form, so a visit from a red-hot Spurs is far from ideal. The Saints right now are in a very vulnerable position and with Kane looking to add his 100th Pr...

Disney’s ‘Aladdin’ soars, sputters in its Pantages premiere

Had there been one more wish left in Genie’s lamp, some of us in the opening-night audience of Disney’s “Aladdin” at the Pantages might have wished that all the lead performances had been as brilliant as the show’s technical elements are. The story, based on the 1992 film, is recounted through the book by Chad Beguelin; lyrics by Howard Ashman, Tim Rice and Beguelin; and music by Alan Menken. Aladdin the thief still wants to rise out of imprisoning poverty, Jasmine the princess wants to escape o...

The (Overwhelming) Case for Not Trading Auston Matthews

Last week, Rob Vollman of wrote a pretty provocative piece concerning the legitimacy of an Auston Matthews trade out of Toronto. When I read the headline, I probably thought what most Leafs fans thought: there’s no way the Toronto Maple Leafs are trading Matthews. The article itself was thought-provoking, and there was a lot of statistical analysis to support the premise, but I’m still not buying what Vollman is selling, for various reasons. Auston Matthews is a Franchise Player There...

Dennis McCarthy: For this Japanese-American veteran, time is running out for an honor long overdue

Maybe the Army just plain forgot about Hiroshi Kobashigawa. Or maybe the letter he should have received in 2011 inviting him to the U.S. Capitol to accept the nation’s highest civilian honor — the Congressional Gold Medal — got lost in the mail or came back undeliverable. That could be since the street he lived on after returning from World War II no longer exists. It got wiped off the map by the 405 Freeway. The retired Japanese gardener, who served as an interpreter with the Military Intellige...
