Judge blocks changes that slowed US mail delivery

SEATTLE — A U.S. judge on Thursday blocked controversial Postal Service changes that have slowed mail nationwide, calling them “a politically motivated attack on the efficiency of the Postal Service” before the November election.

300 and counting: Push by feds to arrest in US protests

By MICHAEL BALSAMO, ALANNA DURKIN RICHER and COLLEEN LONG | Associated Press WASHINGTON — In a private call with federal prosecutors across the country, Attorney General William Barr’s message was clear: aggressively go after demonstrators who cause violence. Barr pushed his U.S. attorneys to bring federal charges whenever they could, keeping a grip on cases even if a defendant could be tried instead in state court, according to officials with knowledge of last week’s call who were not authorize...

Grab a ‘smart cart’: First Amazon Fresh opens to public in Woodland Hills

Alexa is going to be busy Thursday on the west end of the San Fernando Valley. That’s because the first Amazon Fresh grocery store opens in Woodland Hills.

Los Angeles-Orange County’s 16.8% joblessness rate highest in U.S.

Los Angeles and Orange counties in July had the highest unemployment rate among the nation’s largest metropolitan areas as stiff pandemic limitations throttled businesses. My trusty spreadsheet, filled with a Bureau of Labor Statistics ranking of 51 regions with 1 million or more residents, tells me L.A.-O.C.’s 16.8% joblessness ranked No. 1 ahead of 16.4% in New York and Las Vegas. All three cities depend heavily on tourism, an industry hard-hit by pandemic-related lockdowns. Boston at 15.5% wa...

Trick-or-What? Pandemic Halloween is a mixed bag all around

By Leanne Italie | The Associated Press Roving grown-ups tossing candy at kids waiting on lawns. Drive-thru Halloween haunts. Yard parties instead of block parties and parades. Wider paths through corn mazes. The family holiday so many look forward to each year is going to look different in the pandemic as parents and the people who provide Halloween fun navigate a myriad of restrictions and safety concerns. Some were looking extra-forward to Halloween this year because it falls on a Saturday, w...

How Young the Giant’s Sameer Gadhia turned to radio to create a place for diverse music

Touring the world with alternative rock band Young the Giant, has met with a diverse group of alternative artists over the past decade. Most of these musicians and singer-songwriters have built up followings  — without major labels or a push on major radio stations — all on their own because they didn’t fit the stereotypical idea of alternative music. Though his Irvine-based band had found success with its single “Cough Syrup” in 2011 and went on to receive massive radio play with songs like “...

Why the songs remain the same on this LA radio station

It’s a tough job programming to a mass audience. Case in point: K-SURF (1260 AM, 105.1 HD2), also known as LA Oldies. The station started playing the early days of rock ‘n’ roll, focusing primarily on the years of 1955-1970. And listeners were happy. Then the station added more songs from the 1970s. In general, most listeners remained happy, though a few grumbled about all the new songs being added. But new listeners found the station and overall it worked well. Later, songs from the 1980s start...

U.S. Open Final: Dominic Thiem comes back from down 2 sets to win

NEW YORK (AP) — A U.S. Open unlike any other finished unlike any other — with an unprecedented fifth-set tiebreaker as Dominic Thiem became the first man in 71 years to win the final after dropping the opening two sets. So close to defeat in a nearly empty Arthur Ashe Stadium — fans were banned because of the coronavirus pandemic — Thiem slowly but surely turned things around against a faltering Alexander Zverev and pulled out a 2-6, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (6) victory at Flushing Meadows for his fir...

Banned books, damned souls and a Zoot suit lizard: 6 graphic novels you need to read

Maybe you’ve spent a good chunk of the summer — or, more likely, a good chunk of the pandemic — reading at home. Maybe you’ve even hit a wall, thinking you’ve read all the kind of things you usually drift toward or just need a change of pace. Trust that there are still a lot more stories out there. That’s particularly true with comics and graphic novels. Conventions were canceled, but there are plenty of terrific new titles and ongoing series are still hitting the virtual and physical shelves.

Naomi Osaka rallies at US Open to win 3rd Grand Slam

NEW YORK — After one errant forehand in the first set of the U.S. Open final, Naomi Osaka looked at her coach in the mostly empty Arthur Ashe Stadium stands with palms up, as if to say, “What the heck is happening?” In response to another wayward forehand against Victoria Azarenka seconds later, Osaka chucked her racket. It spun a bit and rattled against the court. Surprisingly off-kilter in the early going Saturday, Osaka kept missing shots and digging herself a deficit. Until, suddenly, she li...

Alexander Zverev erases 2-set hole, will face Dominic Thiem in U.S. Open men’s final

NEW YORK (AP) -— For two full sets, Alexander Zverev was confused and listless, his body language as poor as his winner-to-error ratio against Pablo Carreño Busta in the U.S. Open men’s semifinals Friday. Zverev double-faulted and smacked his left high. He put a backhand into the net to cede the opening set and covered his face with both hands. He netted a forehand early in the next set, then turned a forlorn face toward his guest box and put his palms up. When he pushed a backhand long after 1 ...

NFL referee wants you to be a little more ‘Cuddly’

He will take the field for an NFL game in Jacksonville, and few people will know he’s such a dynamic, dual-threat performer. He’s not a player, coach, announcer or national anthem singer. He’s the referee. John Hussey is 56 years old, and he’s beginning his 19th year throwing flags in the NFL. (Career highlight: He was an official in Super Bowl 45 – 2010, Packers vs. Steelers). He’ll start on Sunday, Sept. 13 in the middle of the field in Jacksonville, Florida, as the Jaguars play host to the Co...

Gay candidate has epic clap back for police union that called him a “first class wh*re”
