Can work-at-home cure California traffic jams?

Well, 2020 was an economic oddity for many reasons. The stay-at-home mentality promoted to slowing the spread of coronavirus also impacted how many folks were on the road. And since remote working likely will endure past the pandemic’s end, its ability to cut congestion — and perhaps investments in transportation infrastruc...

Kings’ Dustin Brown reaches 300th goal milestone

The silver lining in the Kings’ season opener–which featured a blown two-goal lead and an overtime loss–was a milestone goal, No. 300, for winger Dustin Brown. Brown, who captained the Kings to Stanley Cups in 2012 and 2014, has been more known for his physical play, leadership and effortful example than his goal-scoring, but he has still managed to notch 300 goals. That mark stands as the 22nd most among American players and fourth among Americans who are active in the NHL. “You don’t stay in o...

Morning Line- Randy Hahn

I think my first comment will be: I missed you. I missed this league. And I miss the sport. It’s been my life’s work for the most part. This is my 30th season with the team. I’m 62 years old. I don’t suspect I have another career in me. I don’t expect to do anything other than what I do now. So this is what I do.

U.S. jobless rankings: LA-Orange counties 3rd worst, Inland Empire No. 7

A stubborn pandemic that’s led to strict attempts to slow its spread pushed Los Angeles and Orange counties to the third-highest unemployment rate in November among the nation’s 51 largest job markets. The Bureau of Labor Statistics ranking of those metro areas showed L.A.-O.C. joblessness at 9.6% vs. 3.8% a year ago. The 5.8 percentage-point increase ranked No. 3 nationally, too.

‘She was just spreading joy:’ Kaiser nurse reveals details of suspected Christmas-tree-costume COVID superspreader

SAN JOSE — About the only sign of holiday cheer on Christmas morning in the emergency department at Kaiser Permanente San Jose was a string of garland tacked up at the doctors’ station. So when a staff member came bounding down the hall the morning of Dec. 25 dressed in an inflatable Christmas tree costume, the moment of levity was a welcome respite. “She was just spreading joy,” said a nurse who worked that morning. Instead, her battery-operated, air-powered costume may have spread the coronavi...

COVID, BLM, Kobe, fires and more: Pixels from 2020, by staff photographer David Crane

Back in January I visited my friends’ house and noticed he had a huge box of 500 surgeon’s masks in his entry hallway which had just been delivered by Amazon. I thought it was a strange purchase as he is not a doctor or works in the medical field, and in fact, has been retired for a few years. He went on to tell me about a virus in China and he thought it might spread to other countries so he figured he should order some masks just in case and asked if I would like some. At the time, I told him ...
