Some local GOP leaders fire up base with conspiracies

By Garance Burke, Martha Mendoza, Juliet Linderman and Larry Fenn | Associated Press A faction of local, county and state Republican officials is pushing lies, misinformation and conspiracy theories that echo those that helped inspire the violent U.S. Capitol siege, online messaging that is spreading quickly through GOP ranks fueled by algorithms that boost extreme content. The Associated Press reviewed public and private social media accounts of nearly 1,000 federal, state, and local elected an...

Newsom’s zero-emission car plans are mostly hot air

SACRAMENTO – Recent news reports contained some eye-opening news, at least for those of us who are car aficionados: “In a stunning announcement, GM says it will stop making all diesel and gas-powered cars,” according to Motor Biscuit. The planned implementation date is 2035, which isn’t particularly far into the future. I’m still grumpy about the disappearing manual transmission, and will give up my 332-horsepower 370Z when they peel the shifter from my cold, dead fingers. Whatever one’s views o...

How exercise changes your brain biology and protects your mental health

As with many other physicians, recommending physical activity to patients was just a doctor chore for me – until a few years ago. That was because I myself was not very active. Over the years, as I picked up boxing and became more active, I got firsthand experience of positive impacts on my mind. I also started researching the effects of dance and movement therapies on trauma and anxiety in refugee children, and I learned a lot more about the neurobiology of exercise. I am a psychiatrist and neu...

Newsom busy extracting ‘behested payments’ from private companies

In other states, when a public official asks for a big check from an individual or business that would have good reason to be afraid to say no, it’s called extortion. In California, it’s called a “behested payment.” A public official can ask for any amount of money. Unlike campaign contributions, there are no limits on behested payments. The money may be “behested” for a “charitable” purpose, which can include donations to non-profit organizations closely tied to the official or to a family memb...

Increasing California’s housing supply will require three major steps

As California struggles to emerge from the economic and social malaise brought about by the coronavirus pandemic, our elected leaders will need to place a renewed focus on a variety of pressing issues, many of which existed long before the outbreak. Chief among these is the need to address California’s dire lack of attainable housing. While there is no single answer to fixing the state’s housing crisis, several critical changes need to occur as to how our elected leaders address the need for mor...

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: Museums are no longer my cup of culture, thank you

When I was young, I really, really wanted to visit the great museums of the world. And I saw many of them. Nowadays, I just want to have a cocktail. That’s right. I’ll sit right here at this lovely cafe and sip my tasty glass of wine, while you go stand in that endless line to view the Mona Lisa. Here’s a clue: It’s underwhelming. Maybe because you have to elbow your way through the thundering hordes to even see it. Maybe because it’s way smaller than you expect. I’m not disrespecting museums. S...

The Latest: Grieving Italians mark a COVID-19 anniversary

By The Associated Press CODOGNO, Italy — Italians are marking one year since their country was shocked to discover it had the first known locally transmitted COVID-19 case in the West. With church services Sunday and wreath-laying ceremonies, including in small northern towns which were the first to be hard-hit by the pandemic, citizens paid tribute to the dead.

It’s All Bad

To state the obvious, it's all bad. Every aspect of this team just plain sucks. No way can this level of incompetence be placed on any one player. It starts behind the bench, and, continues out onto the ice. It's like the entire team has given up, and, no one is even trying to play anymore. Yzerman doesn't get a pass either. It's ultimately his call. Stay, and watch along with us if you want. Don't worry, no one will think any less of you if you check out early, or, like ...

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: I looked in my son’s closet

So I did something the other day that I try hard to never do: I entered my son’s bedroom. The doctor has ordered me to avoid stress, so in my world that means staying as far away as possible from the interior of my adult children’s rooms. They could have entire families living in there. I’d never know. It’s been many years, but at one time my daughter Curly Girl had a box full of tiny kittens she’d found in front of the grocery store hidden in her room, and it took me an embarrassingly long time...

A One Line Team In Toronto

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, William Nylander is like buying furniture from IKEA with the instructions somehow missing from the package. You know you have all the parts — you see them in front of you — you just have no real idea of how to put it all together. Nylander was not the reason why the Maple Leafs blew a 5-1 lead Monday night and lost in rather embarrassing fashion to the hapless but growing Ottawa Senators. But bigger picture, away from this messy defeat, away ...

Best Equipment for High Handicap Golfers

If golfing with your buddies and spending some quality time is what you’re after. Being one of the best players to walk the course would obviously not be on your schedule. Maybe you enjoy golfing just for the experience and don’t necessarily want to be the best or beat everyone you play with. It is truly one of the most relaxing games you can play, but there’s no doubt about it that at some stage or another, you will get frustrated with slicing more than $20 into the woods. This is understandabl...

Riot video shows focus on stopping Biden’s win

Don’t do it.” “Where are they counting the (expletive) votes!” they hollered as they streamed inside, wielding wooden beams and a metal baseball bat, forcing the officer t...
