Senior Living: Is your living room the future of hospital care?

By Julie Appleby, Kaiser Health News Major hospital systems are betting big money that the future of hospital care looks a lot like the inside of patients’ homes. Hospital-level care at home — some of it provided over the internet — is poised to grow after more than a decade as a niche offering, boosted both by medical facilities eager to ease overcrowding during the coronavirus pandemic and growing interest by insurers who want to slow health care spending. But challenges remain, such as decidi...

Slight relief from high temperatures coming this week after Southern California heat wave

Inland areas of Southern California that saw triple-digit temperatures last week will get a few days of relief, but not for long. High temperatures were expected to stay in the mid-80s to low-90s in the Inland Empire and in the 80s for inland Orange and Los Angeles counties for most of the week, meteorologists said Monday, June 21. The marine layer was expected to stick around in coastal areas, with temperatures mostly in the 70s. But temperatures will start to heat up again later in the week. “...

15-year-old graduates from UC Irvine, eyes medical school

When Kylie Munson first started college, her mom would walk her to the classrooms at Los Angeles Mission College, then wait, patiently, outside on a bench until she finished. She was 11 at the time, taking classes with peers much older – ones who could at least drive themselves to school. Munson, now 15, walked the stage at UC Irvine last week, clad in cap and gown to collect her undergraduate diploma. The Santa Clarita native studied biological sciences, and sees more education in her future, h...

Whicker: Want an NCAA revolution? The Supreme Court is here to help

Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh did not have to write a thing. The Supreme Court had already spoken, in 9-0 unanimity. It upheld a district court’s decision in NCAA v. Alston that barred the NCAA from limiting the money an athlete could receive from a college for education-related purposes. It was another paper cut, another hatchet chop against the bloated business of intercollegiate athletics. Then Kavanaugh brought the chainsaw. He wrote a concurring opinion that immediately becomes the bigg...

Amazon’s Prime Day deals expected to disappoint as costs surge

By Spencer Soper | Bloomberg The deals during’s annual Prime Day sale will be stingier this year, according to merchants, thanks to rising shipping costs, higher advertising rates and scarce inventory. The two-day event, which began Monday, arrived as the world grapples with the lingering effects of the pandemic. Supply-chain disruptions — including the Suez Canal shutdown earlier this year and a spike in Covid cases that has hobbled two of China’s busiest ports — have pushed up costs...

The fast food chicken sandwich wars will never end and here’s why

Nearly two years after it began, the battle over what fast food chain has the best chicken sandwich rages on. Carl’s Jr., Burger King and McDonald’s recently entered the fray in the so-called chicken sandwich wars, and they’re not alone. Kentucky Fried Chicken and Wendy’s have added new chicken sandwiches to their menu, and even Taco Bell has revived its Naked Chicken Chalupa, which has a shell made with chicken meat, as a contender in combat. “Now it’s just required that everyone have a chicken...

Sex? Check. Drugs? Yes. Rock ‘n’ roll? Obviously. Regrets? Michael Des Barres has none.

Michael Des Barres never made plans, but always knew what he was doing. “No plans — instinct everything,” says the 73-year-old English-born actor and rock singer, who landed in Los Angeles in the ’70s and never left. “What I’m trying to say is that I’ve never thought anything through. I’ve just done it.” Des Barres is talking ostensibly because a documentary on his life, “Michael Des Barres: Who Do You Want Me To Be?” arrives on home video this month. “I leave school – this abusive, absurd, crim...

Angels get another Shohei Ohtani homer but lose in 10 innings

ANAHEIM — The latest blast in the Shohei Ohtani Homer Barrage wasn’t enough to get the Angels their sweep. Ohtani hit his sixth homer in six games on Sunday afternoon, but the Angels still lost, 5-3, to the Detroit Tigers in 10 innings, missing their shot to win all four games in the series. Ohtani is tied for the major league lead with 23 homers. That also set a new career-high for Ohtani, who hit 22 in his rookie season in 2018. “It’s pretty incredible, right?” Manager Joe Maddon said. “It’s r...

This bill was meant to protect California workers from COVID. Some counties use it to protect employers instead.

In the thick of the pandemic, California adopted a law to tell workers of dangers their employers often kept secret: Which workplaces had suffered outbreaks of COVID-19, and how severe they were. Yet six months after the law took effect, most employees know scarcely more than before, a Bay Area News Group investigation has found. Only about one-third of the state’s 58 counties released specific information on workplace outbreaks in response to recent public records requests, and those specifics ...

Rialto pyrotechnics company rebounds from ‘devastating’ pandemic, plans 250 fireworks shows this year

This Fourth of July, Jim Souza will have something extra special to celebrate: the rebounding of his family pyrotechnics business that was crippled by the coronavirus pandemic last year. When the pandemic prompted restrictions of public events nationwide in March 2020, Pyro Spectaculars by Souza in Rialto, one of the biggest producers of pyrotechnic extravaganzas nationwide, took a major hit. Sales declined by 90%. More than 300 scheduled Fourth of July events dwindled to less than 20, and Souza...

Fans celebrate at Boots in the Park music festival, the first since COVID-19 mandates lifted

On Saturday, country music fans were ready to party. As they began entering the gates of Boots in the Park at SilverLakes Equestrian and Sports Park in Norco around noon, they rushed to set up lawn chairs and blankets in the grassy seating area and hurried to one of the multiple bar tents to get that first beer or sweet cocktail to cool down on balmy, yet breezy, 90-plus degree day. “We came here so we could drink with people,” Amee Brown of Riverside said.

As employees head back to work, insults and misconduct ramp up

They’re back. Those snide insults, inappropriate comments, racist remarks and sexual innuendos that used to make us cringe are rearing their heads again as more people return to the workplace amid a fast-recovering — and seemingly looser — COVID-19 world. After more than 14 months of working from home with no on-site management to filter or rein in comments or behaviors that could be considered workplace harassment, employees and bosses are facing an adjustment period. In some cases, it’s making...

July 4th 2021: Fireworks and other fun at Southern California casinos

In 2020, Fourth of July celebrations were canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. Even Southern California’s tribal casinos, which had just opened from their COVID-19 related closures, eschewed their typical fireworks displays. A year later, festivities will return to some casinos. Expect colorful drinks; music and the return of pyrotechnic shows for casino patrons and nearby residents to enjoy.

Bill would require doctors to disclose payments from drug, device manufacturers

New legislation inspired by a Studio City woman’s failed breast reconstruction surgery would force doctors in California to tell their patients annually about any money or gifts they receive from drug and medical device companies. The federal Physician Payments Sunshine Act, a law signed in 2010, already requires the companies to report such payments to a public “Open Payments” database run by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. But proponents of Assembly Bill 1278 say the federal ac...

These are heady days for Clipper fans who haven’t forgotten how to feel

Mitch Chortkoff used to say it all the time, sometimes at the table in the Chick Hearn Press Room that currently bears his name. “Say what you want about Clippers fans,” Chortkoff said. “They’re the real basketball fans in this town.” Chortkoff covered pro basketball in Los Angeles from the days when the blue Lakers uniforms weren’t throwbacks. He also saw the game all the way down to its bones, and wrote it the same way, and would keep the reader loose by throwing in a groaner or two, like “The...

Investigators seek other possible road rage incidents involving man charged with killing Aiden Leos

Investigators ask anyone who may have been threatened by a Costa Mesa gun enthusiast charged with fatally shooting a 6-year-old boy in May on the 55 Freeway to report the incidents to law enforcement authorities. Prosecutors said Marcus Anthony Eriz, a 24-year-old auto body technician, became angry when the boy’s mother flashed her middle finger at him and his girlfriend, 23-year-old Wynne Lee following a lane-change dispute on the freeway in Orange on May 21. Eriz then rolled down the passenger...

Why this fragrant plant is the king of herbs in your garden

Everyone likes basil, or I have yet to meet that person who does not. Basil (bay-zill to Americans, ba-zill to the British) is considered the king of herbs owing to its elevated status among them. Fittingly, the word “basil” is derived from the word basiliskos, which means  “little king” in Greek and refers to a small, mysterious and venomous serpent, the basilisk, with a marking on its head that resembles a crown. While diminutive in size, the quasi-mythical basilisk is extremely poisonous. Acc...

How volunteering at Dodger Stadium during COVID-19 influenced author’s book on Los Angeles

He’s not. Baldwin, who was born in Chicago and raised primarily in Connecticut, had only visited the city a handful of times before moving here more than six years ago. “I always choose George as my Starbucks name, because Rosecrans is just asking for pe...

Shohei Ohtani homers twice in Angels’ rout of Tigers

ANAHEIM — Angel Stadium has been open to full capacity just twice in 2021. The second occasion was Friday night’s game between the Angels and Detroit Tigers, and the building was roughly half full – 22,734, according to the home team. The crowd was sparse enough for several sections to practice safe physical distancing if they chose. The crowd was opinionated enough to repeatedly voice its choice for American League Most Valuable Player: Shohei Ohtani. Ohtani hit two home runs in the Angels’ 11-...

Black history is more than Juneteenth, Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks

The first time Olani LaBeaud learned in detail about Juneteenth — a day in history that marks the end of slavery in America — was toward the end of high school, in an AP history class. She was in her first year of college at Cal State Long Beach when she heard about the Tulsa Massacre — a race riot in 1921 when mobs of White residents, some deputized and given weapons by city officials, attacked Black residents and destroyed homes, killing more than 800 people and wounding many others.

He lost his wife, but not their baby; now he’s a Dad in progress

People ask James Alvarez all the time how he manages to carry on. The question could be sympathetic or prying or annoying. But to Alvarez, it’s understandable. The sad part of his story is pretty well known. On Aug. 11, 2020,  Alvarez and his pregnant wife, Yesenia Lisette Aguilar, were touched by the kind of tragedy you might see in a movie.
