Coachella 2019: How to have a tea party at the festival

Andrea Bradford and her friends wanted a bit of energy for their day at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Friday. So they sat inside the Indio Central Market Friday afternoon drinking a green concoction made out of a powder from a ground-up plant. This wasn’t some new drug they snuck into Coachella, but rather tea. Sign up for our Festival Pass newsletter. Whether you are a Coachella lifer or prefer to watch from afar, get weekly dispatches during the Southern California music festiva...

Whicker: The season of Montrezl Harrell isn’t over yet

LOS ANGELES — When you’re Montrezl Harrell and you’re from eastern North Carolina and you play like a ticked-off tractor-trailer with wings, you generally don’t escape football. Indeed, Harrell was a defensive end for North Edgecombe High. Every year he would line up against Tarboro High, which had Todd Gurley. “I played against him,” Harrell said, “but honestly, there wasn’t too much tackling going on. A little burst of speed, and he was out. We kicked off to him in the second half and he went ...

Bubble Watch: California’s population growth trails U.S. for 3 consecutive years

“Bubble Watch” digs into trends that may indicate economic and/or housing market troubles ahead. Buzz: California population growth has failed to top the national pace for the third year in a row — a rare occurrence that previously happened amid grand economic uncertainty. Source: U.S. Census Bureau Trend reported: As of July, census reports California had 39,557,045 residents — again, No. 1 in the nation — and up 157,696 in a year — the third-largest gain in the number of people.

Behind every good listing is a careful homeowner

Have you reviewed your listing online? Have you carefully read the description, scrutinized each of the fields for accuracy, checked the HOA dues against your most recent statement, and made sure your contact and showing information is correct? The last thing you want is for the information that is blasted out to hundreds, if not thousands, of websites to misrepresent or under-represent what your home has to offer. Start with the flowery, captivating, emotional, and almost poetic paragraphs your...

Why even smart people fall for scams

We live in an age where almost anything seems available and possible. Technology has brought forth many great developments on a daily basis that make living easier and better. And it’s also created instant, universal access to whatever we seek. Because of this, our mindsets are acclimated to believing that there is an answer for almost anything. If you couple this with one or more of these five factors, it places even the most intelligent people at risk for fraud. Why do smart people fall for sc...

Coachella 2019: Everything you need to know about Friday of Weekend 2

Greetings from the the mega sunny Empire Polo Club in Indio, where the Southern California News Group team is back in the saddle for a second weekend of Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival coverage. These photos show you all the Weekend 2 Coachella vibes (and we’ll be updating that gallery all weekend long).

Commercial real estate: Is price important? 5 (surprising) reasons why it’s not

This could be the shortest column EVER! Of course, price is important. End of story. But, because I have a bit more space, allow me to offer some arguments as to why price is not important. As we’ve discussed, buyers of commercial real estate either buy to occupy (owner-occupant) or buy to collect the rents as income (investor). In the latter case, no relationship exists between the owner and the occupant — it’s strictly arm’s length. Counter with the former as an owner-operated business will so...

Here’s what pot smokers think about driving while high

Many cannabis-culture celebrations will take place on 4/20 (April 20), so here’s a look at some pot smokers’ opinions on driving and tips to self-assess if you are too high. Statistics show that alcohol and opiates are involved in more automobile accidents and fatalities than cannabis. But cannabis can still impair drivers, and it’s against the law to drive while high. If a California police officer suspects any driver is impaired by any intoxicant, that driver may get locked up and that’s the u...

Success and failure of protected species in California

The 2019 theme for Earth Day is ‘protect our species’ so today we look at some that are threatened or near extinction in California. The California flag features a grizzly bear that roamed the state, stood 8 feet and weighed more than a ton. The bear was considered a threat to livestock and people and has been extinct since the 1920s. The California grizzly was designated the official state animal in 1953, 30 years after it was killed off. Gray wolves were the other large mammal to join the path...

Coachella 2019: Childish Gambino changes his tune and embraces fans cellphone usage

Donald Glover, known as Childish Gambino, had a change of heart and embraced his fans throughout his Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival weekend two set. Gambino broke away from his “put away your cellphones” mindset from weekend one by embracing his fans’ phones Friday, April 20. “I’m not against pictures and (expletive),” Gambino told the audience, even though he bared media outlets such as this one from photographing his set. “Just bring (the energy) for me.” Sign up for our Festival Pa...

Coachella 2019: Shalom, Kanye! Festival goers celebrated Passover with Matzahchella seder

If Kanye West is going to do his Easter Sunday service, then Rami Matan Even-Esh knew he had to bring Passover to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Again. Three years ago Shabbat Tent, an all-volunteer group brought what it called Matzahchella, a series of 10-minute seders at the start of Passover, to the festival. “When Kanye announced his Easter service then I knew we had to do it,” Even-Esh said. “I’m going to do Passover wherever I am but I just think there needs to be equal repr...

Coachella 2019: Beyoncé’s presence still felt one year later

Beyoncé Knowles was not on the lineup of the 2019 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, but there’s still some Beychella magic one year after her epic headlining set.

Coachella 2019: These festival fans have been going since the beginning

They were there the first time Rage Against the Machine played, and they were there eight years later when the Los Angeles group reunited at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in 2007. They saw Amy Winehouse, Arcade Fire and Childish Gambino long before they were household names. Now that Coachella has turned 20 — and is very different from the event that started at the Empire Polo Club in the fall of 1999 — we talked to some of the festival’s die-hard fans who keep coming back to the ...

Alexander: Is Pat Riley in the Lakers’ future? Should he be?

The world according to Jim: • At the moment, Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka appears to be permanently ensconced at the top of the team’s basketball operations organizational chart. He seems to have Jeanie Buss’ ear, and her trust – or at least they both have Kobe Bryant in common – and he’s the one handling the search for a new coach. But this is basketball’s preeminent reality show, with apologies to LaVar Ball. Last week’s episode? Earvin Johnson’s stunning and sudden departure as the over...

Ex-LA County Sheriff Lee Baca inches closer to prison after appeal rejected

LOS ANGELES – Former Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca is one step closer to prison after a federal appeals court Friday rejected a request to reconsider the appeal of the ex-lawman’s conviction on charges of obstruction of justice and lying to the FBI. The 76-year-old former sheriff, who has Alzheimer’s disease, was sentenced in May 2017 to three years in federal prison, but has remained free pending appeal. In February, a three-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in Pasadena...

Southern California’s French Catholics lead fundraising efforts to rebuild burned Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris

Bernard Prat was born in 1946, a little over a year after the bells of the Notre Dame Cathedral tolled for the last time — marking the Liberation of Paris during World War II. Prat’s parents were witnesses to that historic event. “The bells were so loud and powerful that they shattered some of the cathedral’s windows,” he said. “When I saw the roof collapse, I was so sad. It took 1,300 trees — an entire forest — to build that wooden roof.” Prat, 73, of Newport Beach, was among millions around th...

Here are 10 Southern California Earth Day/Earth Month events, from planting a tree to riding a bike to taking a hike

I once wrote in this space that Earth Day should be abolished. A holiday to assuage our guilt over polluting the earth? It’s like Grandparents’ Day, invented by Hallmark so we could send a card and maybe place a phone call and stop feeling guilty about not reaching out to nanna and papa. Until next year. But not everyone lives this stuff day-in, day-out like I do. Some of you might take this time — it’s now called Earth Month — to do something for the planet either by yourself or with a family m...

USC prof devises ‘smart’ building materials that move by themselves (that’s right, no motor), save energy

As a licensed architect concerned about the environment, Doris Sung became fed up catering to clients wanting steel and glass buildings with no regard to how such designs draw boatloads of energy, exacerbating global climate change. So after 20 years, she quit the business and began focusing on building a better mousetrap. The result has been several prototypes using “smart building materials” that could revolutionize architecture, change the way buildings are constructed and ultimately reduce t...
