Disney’s $71 billion acquisition of 21st Century Fox means Mickey Mouse now has thousands of new television shows and movie titles at his white gloved fingertips that can be used to create rides, shows and lands at the company’s theme parks around the world. But which properties from Fox’s vast film and TV libraries would fit best in Disney’s 12 theme parks in California, Florida, Tokyo, Paris, Hong Kong and Shanghai?

LA Clippers team up with LA tech stars to promote science, engineering, math careers

It was a Friday of questions and answers at the L.A. Convention Center, as scores of students and parents descended downtown for the Clippers SciFest SoCal. That’s right. Instead of a basketball court at nearby Staples Center, where players school each other in the art of hoops, this was about getting schooled in the science of things. A colorful version on Mars on display by JPL at the Southern California science and engineering festival at the Los Angeles Convention Center Friday, March 22...

Tariffs trickle throughout the shopping experience

Few people realize that the higher costs associated with the trade war ripple throughout their shopping experiences. Shoppers won’t find many of the items in my specialty gift stores on the list of items subject to tariffs, but those duties affect my day-to-day business in terms of pricing and sourcing products in my stores. Many customers still haven’t felt the sting of tariffs, because businesses like mine are doing everything they can to absorb what is effectively a 10 percent tax increase on...

For LAFC, beating Real Salt Lake wouldn’t be ‘payback’ as much as soothing playoff wounds

LOS ANGELES — Three goals. Two shots on target. One brutal end to the season. For the first time since yanking the rug out from underneath the Los Angeles Football Club in the knockout round of the 2018 MLS Cup playoffs, Real Salt Lake returns to Banc of California Stadium. “Silencing any away crowd is always a good feeling,” RSL starting defender Aaron Herrera said. LAFC embraced the upset loss as the club prepared this week. “It’s payback time,” said Latif Blessing, LAFC’s excitable Ghanian wh...

To solve nursing shortage, first do no harm to California’s nursing schools

California is in the midst of a severe nursing shortage, but a little-known Sacramento agency seems determined to make the crisis worse. I can honestly say I’ve never seen anything like it. I have been licensed to practice nursing in California for 35 years. In that time — as a clinician, educator, administrator and hospital board trustee — I have also held multiple executive-level positions in nursing service and education as well as serving in professional associations. I have been honored by ...

Nothing certain in Tuesday special election for Long Beach state Senate seat

With many candidates on the ballot and few voters expected to turn out — and not much in the way of reliable polling — a special election for the California state Senate in the Long Beach area on Tuesday is shaping up as unpredictable. Democrat Lena Gonzalez, a Long Beach city councilwoman who has the most campaign cash and endorsements, hopes the 33rd District contest follows a pattern that’s common in Los Angeles-area special elections, the one in which a single standout candidate captures a m...

Uncollected illegal guns put Californians at risk

In the aftermath of the horrific massacre of Muslim worshippers in New Zealand, the gun control debate has flared up yet again over how best to prevent gun violence. While it is not easy to find common ground on solutions, I hope we can agree that taking guns away from high-risk individuals with criminal histories and mental health challenges should be a top priority for government. In California, such a tool already exists to help the state government do its job, which is called the Armed & Pro...

Assembly Bill 221 is bad for students, teachers and communities

During the LAUSD teachers’ strike, I stood with my colleagues for six days on the picket lines fighting for more funding and resources to improve our city’s public schools. All of us striking teachers were inspired by the outpouring of support from people in Los Angeles and across the country. After nine years in the profession, I never felt more inspired to be a teacher. Only weeks after the strike, some of my enthusiasm about the future of our public schools and the teaching profession has bee...

First, the boys in blue are looking good again and maybe, just maybe, the third time will be the charm. And also, the food at Dodger Stadium is looking good again this year with several new dishes and a couple of returning stars making their debut on opening day this month. “We’re just trying to do simple f...

Reject proposal to allow bonds to be issued without voter approval

A bill working its way through the state Legislature would create yet another exception to Proposition 13’s requirement for voter approval of new taxes and debt, allowing local governments to issue some bonds without the need to put the debt proposal on a ballot. Senate Bill 128 by Sen. Jim Beall, D-San Jose, would authorize Enhanced Infrastructure Financing Districts to issue bonds without voter approval. The bill was passed by a vote of 6-0 in the Senate Governance and Finance Committee on Wed...

Governments shouldn’t be surveilling journalists

If the government wants to follow what journalists report on, great — open the newspaper. Turn on the radio or television. Punch up the website or the app. But don’t, thank you very much, put us into a secret database with personal information about us — the kinds of cars we drive, our mothers’ names, for instance — and then flag our passports with alerts so that we get extra inspections at international borders. Yet that’s just what the United States and Mexican governments did to journalists c...

LAUSD continues to struggle to stay afloat as it waits for new revenue, latest financial report shows

By Taylor Swaak | LA School Report School board members have approved L.A. Unified’s latest budget, even though the district is still far from being financially sustainable. The revised fiscal stabilization plan lays out the district’s response to county concerns about deficit spending, inadequate reserve levels and reliance on non-guaranteed funds to keep itself afloat. But instead of providing clarity, the latest budget highlighted the district’s deepening reliance on new funding sources as it...

How Middle America Is to Be Dispossessed ~ VIDEO

Opinion USA – -(Ammoland.com)- In all but one of the last seven presidential elections, Republicans lost the popular vote. George W. Bush and Donald Trump won only by capturing narrow majorities in the Electoral College. Hence the grand strategy of the left: to enlarge and alter the U.S. electorate so as to put victory as far out of reach for national Republicans as it is today for California Republicans, and to convert the GOP into America's permanent minority party. In the Golden State, Dem...

No, immigrant-owned small businesses won’t “do just fine” under California’s new privacy law

I was drawn in by the coverage of last month’s hearing in the State Capitol on California’s new privacy law, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).  One quote caught my attention. “All of these companies are going to do just fine. They’re going to make a lot of money,” the witness stated, referring to the tech companies concerned about the law. I don’t know if that’s true, and that’s not my concern. I’m more troubled about the impact on small businesses, and specifically, those owned by imm...
