How Rick Singer started the college admissions cheating scandal? It began with a reality TV audition

Rick Singer looks straight into the camera, auditioning for his own reality show about the cutthroat world of college admissions. Wearing a light blue sweater vest, he pitches himself as a “life-coach” for families desperate to get their kids into Stanford, Yale and USC. He has the look of a tennis pro and a voice that could pass for New York “fixer” Michael Cohen. “This is a game,’’ he says on the production company video submitted to a network in 2010 and unearthed last week by TMZ . “Just rea...

Senior Moments: Sinking into a sound bath and seeing my life pass before my eyes

Described by some as “the new way to chill,” a sound bath, roughly speaking, is a meditation using Tibetan singing bowls, gongs and other instruments. The sound vibrations are said to make it easier to experience a deeper meditative state. The ultimate stress reduction. With that thought in mind, I positioned myself on my back on the pale green mat provided at the Descanso Gardens sound bath event. Someone put a pillow under my head and handed me a purple satin eye shade weighted with lavender. ...

Bayer AG lost the first phase of a trial over claims its Roundup weed killer causes cancer and now moves to a second phase to determine liability and damages in the case of a man who sprayed the herbicide on his property for decades.

Tesla has new rival in quest to make solar rooftops happen

Elon Musk recently declared 2019 as the “year of the solar roof.” Tesla’s chief executive officer may be right — but not in the way he’s expecting. While the automaker tries to ramp up production of its textured glass, solar cell-embedded rooftop tiles, another group of formidable rivals is emerging: roofers. One of the largest roofing companies in the world has begun offering its own version of a solar roof — essentially panels laid right up against the top of a house and surrounded by shingles...

Why even a limited federal paid family leave program would quickly unravel

Republicans are jumping on the paid family leave bandwagon. Last Tuesday, Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, introduced the CRADLE Act to let workers tap Social Security for paid family leave. The day before that, President Trump proposed a 6-week federal paid family leave program and a one-time, $1 billion fund to help private employers set up paid family leave programs in his FY 2020 budget. These proposals contrast with liberals’ predominant proposal—the Family Act—which would es...

LeBron James reveals Lakers pitch to summer free agents: ‘They cater to the players’

NEW YORK — In the midst of what threatens to be the worst season of his 16-year career, there’s a particular ray of sunshine for LeBron James that he’s been willing to address. Summer free agency. That should be a familiar oasis to Lakers fans recently, as the franchise prepares to miss the postseason for the sixth consecutive season and undoubtedly will do some roster reshuffling with much of the team on expiring contracts. With salary cap space, the Lakers are expected to hunt for a second sta...

Rangers Are This Season’s Unluckiest Team

The New York Rangers have had a season like no other in the team’s recent history. As a club that used to be a perennial Stanley Cup contender, the Rangers are used to getting good breaks and lucky rewards. That is seemingly the nature of the playoffs. One bounce here and one tip there, the team that takes advantage of the lucky breaks usually wins. But now the Rangers are experiencing the other side, the unlucky one. They’re a team that puts forth a plentiful amount of effort night in and night...
