Dodgers dominated by Yu Darvish in loss to Padres

SAN DIEGO — In keeping with the new crackdown on grip-enhancing substances, the umpires checked Padres starter Yu Darvish multiple times during Monday’s game. Like most of the Dodgers hitters, they came up empty. Darvish struck out 11 in six innings, including seven consecutive batters at one point, holding the Dodgers to two hits as a delighted sellout crowd at Petco Park watched the San Diego Padres “Beat L.A.,” 6-2. The latest renewal of this fresh-out-of-the-wrapper rivalry once again was pl...

JPL scientists say high-altitude balloons may be used to study Venus

PASADENA — Researchers from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Caltech said today they want to further test the use of high-altitude balloons — like two used in California after a series of earthquakes about two years ago — to determine if they could be utilized to study seismic activity on Venus. Instruments attached to one of two “heliotrope” balloons detected a low-frequency acoustic vibration wash over it as a result of a 4.2-magnitude aftershock in July 2019, with scientists subsequently ...

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

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...

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...

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

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...

Rich Archbold: The Buchfuhrers — celebrating Father’s Day as doctor team

When Julia Buchfuhrer was growing up, she had a special bond with her father, Mark Buchfuhrer, but, hard as he tried, he could not persuade her to become a doctor like he was. ‘No way, no way,” she told her dad.

He finally got his wish when his daughter decided to go to medical school and become a doctor, but that wasn’t the end of the story. Julia Buchfuhrer graduated from med school at Western Unive...
