Galaxy getting familiar with new coaching staff at training camp

CARSON — Training camp is only three days old, but the message from the new technical staff and new coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto is being sent. “Everybody is stiff, everybody is sore,” Galaxy forward Ola Kamara said. “It’s a higher intensity from the beginning and I think the intensity was something that we lacked last year.” The Galaxy reported for preseason Sunday and spent Monday and Tuesday going two-a-days, which meant a lot of running, under the direction of new fitness coach Javier Va...

Want the Wild to rebuild and start over? It's harder -- and riskier -- than you might think

The Wild will have a week off for the All-Star break starting Thursday and will arrive at the unofficial midpoint (50 games played is not half of 82) in a familiar position. The Wild is very much in the mix for a playoff spot — a little better than a coin flip, depending on where you look at probabilities — but Minnesota clearly isn't one of the NHL's very best teams. Top 16? Possibly. Top five? No chance. This middle ground has defined much of the last seven seasons (counting this one) since th...

5 notes on Elton John’s ‘Farewell’ at Staples Center on Tuesday

Late in Elton John’s terrific show at Staples Center on Tuesday, on what the 71-year-old performer has billed as the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, his final run of shows around the world, he paused to thank all the fans who’ve supported him throughout half a century on stage. “Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d be sitting here 50 years later talking to you,” John said. “I’ve been incredibly lucky. Worked very hard, but I’ve been lucky too.” And Los Angeles has always been there for hi...

Oilers Could No Longer Justify Keeping Chiarelli

On April 24, 2015, the Edmonton Oilers hired Peter Chiarelli to serve as their president of hockey operations and general manager, becoming the sixth individual in that role since the Oilers joined the NHL in 1979. Chiarelli was generally well regarded at the time, having won a Stanley Cup with the Boston Bruins in 2011 and reaching another Stanley Cup Final with the team in 2013. The Oilers were certainly excited to have him, with CEO Bob Nicholson noting that “a person of Peter Chiarelli’s cal...

Wasteful Medicaid spending prevents government from fulfilling core responsibilities

Few states can waste public healthcare dollars like California. According to a recent state audit, Medi-Cal — the Golden State’s Medicaid program, which covers about 13 million people — improperly spent more than $4 billion on thousands of ineligible enrollees from 2014 to 2017. At least one of those ineligible enrollees had been dead for years. Such waste is commonplace in Medicaid programs nationwide. Every year, the healthcare entitlement for low-income Americans wastes billions of dollars on...

How getting bored led Fidlar to push the right buttons in the studio

As they were working on their third album, the members of Fidlar got a little curious in the recording studio and started playing around with the equipment, pushing all sorts of buttons and gizmos just to see what would happen. The result of these shenanigans is a new album that’s a bit of a departure from the band’s stripped-down music in favor of a more layered sound that still maintains the punk spirit of the L.A.-born group. “We got to the studio for this third record and we’re like, ‘What’s...

First, Last And Dats

In the event you haven't noticed, the Wings sit dead last in the NHL.   Jersey, Ottawa and Chicago all share point totals (43) but have all played more games.  Somewhere, in a house in suburban Detroit, the Red Wing GM (the secret one) must be sitting and silently hoping, or not so silently. Hoping for more losses. Hoping to solidify our spot as 1 with a bullet in the Hughes sweepstakes.  Continue reading "First, Last And Dats"

Schedule Takes A Toll On The Chicago Blackhawks

from Mark Lazerus of The Athletic, I casually asked Jonathan Toews if he ever thought about the differences in travel playing in the Eastern Conference, particularly the New York area, versus the Western Conference, particularly Chicago, the second-easternmost city in the West. “Yup,” he said sharply, as if he had been waiting for this question all his life. “A lot.” Toews then beat me to the follow-up. “And from what I hear,” he continued, “Phoenix is getting added to our div...

Certainly the times demand a lot of us.

Poll: 69% of office workers in Los Angeles, Orange counties would leave town for a new job

When office workers were asked if they’d move for a job, 69 percent of those surveyed in Los Angeles and Orange counties said, “Yes!” Now before you think you see another hint of a local mass exodus, please note quitting jobs is the workplace’s hottest trend. And people may tell a pollster they want to relocate, but Census trends show Californians don’t move much these days. Also, note that career itchiness is a national trend.
