A Swell Buoy

Utahn Michael Ruzek began tracking Buoy 51101, a weather buoy moored far off the north shore of Kauai, over a decade ago. He observed that when swells cause 51101 to start climbing—activity he’s dubbed a “buoy pop”—Utah’s Wasatch Mountain Range almost always receives a snowstorm two weeks later. At first, Ruzek kept this intel to himself. But, before long, friends encouraged him to go public. Now, more than 13,000 Instagram and 8,000 Facebook followers later, savvy powder hounds from around the ...

Successful Aging: There are ways to connect with grandchildren during the pandemic

Q. Before the pandemic, I was a physically active grandmother to three young grandchildren. Currently, I am extremely compliant with the CDC recommendations because of my husband’s compromised immune system. Some of my family members and friends are less cautious. Because I am not physically present, I feel passed over for those grandmotherly activities in favor of those who are less cautious. I’ve become the absent grandmother which is having a negative effect on my mental health. I feel I have...

Facebook accused of watching Instagram users through phone cameras

By Robert Burnson | Bloomberg Facebook is again being sued for allegedly spying on Instagram users, this time through the unauthorized use of their mobile phone cameras. The lawsuit springs from media reports in July that the photo-sharing app appeared to be accessing iPhone cameras even when they weren’t actively being used. Facebook denied the reports and blamed a bug, which it said it was correcting, for triggering what it described as false notifications that Instagram was accessing iPhone c...

Newsom’s foolish endorsement of split roll reveals his priorities

Gov. Gavin Newsom’s image-building efforts of late make him appear wizened and independent-minded, but his recent backing of the split-roll initiative reveals the shopworn tendencies we’ve come to expect from the establishment. To be clear: Proposition 15 is no more about addressing unfair benefits for wealthy corporations than it is about helping to educate little kids. This is a straight confiscation bankrolled by Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, his wife Priscilla Chan and the California Teachers...

Emmy Awards 2020: Predictions for what could be a very awkward show

Considering that the Emmy Awards will go virtual for the first time — and that winners will accept their prizes from their homes — maybe our annual batch of predictions should focus more on how the telecast will unfold, than who will prevail. For example: Just how many awkward flubs are going to plague host Jimmy Kimmel? Will the WiFi cut out, and if so, when? Who will have the best Zoom backgrounds?

It happened in the third inning of a scoreless game with two outs and no men on base.  Suter was in the middle of his windup on the 1-0 pitch when he seemed to catch his plant foot in the dirt, throwing him off balance.  As he fell backward, Suter was able to position himself to roll backwards and pop right back up on his feet, as if he meant ...
