‘Unfathomable’: US death toll from coronavirus hits 200,000

By CARLA K. JOHNSON | AP Medical Writer The US death toll from the coronavirus topped 200,000 Tuesday, a figure unimaginable eight months ago when the scourge first reached the world’s richest nation with its state-of-the-art laboratories, top-flight scientists and stockpiles of medicines and emergency supplies. “It is completely unfathomable that we’ve reached this point,” said Jennifer Nuzzo, a Johns Hopkins University public health researcher.

Working families should not subsidize renewable energy

Behind the current wildfires are record temperatures driven by climate change. The highest temperature ever recorded anywhere in the world was 130 degrees last month in Death Valley. Recent rolling blackouts remind us of California’s wrenching energy crisis 20 years ago. Are we better prepared today to avoid a repeat of such a debacle? Unfortunately, the answer is: probably not. The California Independent System Operator, which operates the electrical grid for the western United States, warned u...

Bicycle sales and repairs are skyrocketing, creating shortages and waiting lists

On a recent July day, Andrew Yip dragged nine old bicycles from his garage and listed them for sale on a mobile platform called OfferUp. What was intended as a summer quarantine project lasted just six hours — the time it took to sell all nine to separate buyers. From college students to transplanted Europeans to a man who drove from Santa Clarita, the buyers came to his Hacienda Heights home almost immediately. All nine bicycles were gone before sundown. “It was amazing,” said Yip, a cycling en...

Biden would push for less US reliance on nukes for defense

By ROBERT BURNS | AP National Security Writer WASHINGTON — Democrat Joe Biden leaves little doubt that if elected he would try to scale back President Donald Trump’s buildup in nuclear weapons spending. And although the former vice president has not fully detailed his nuclear priorities, he says he would make the U.S. less reliant on the world’s deadliest weapons. The two candidates’ views on nuclear weapons policy and strategy carry unusual significance in this election because the United State...

Donald Trump versus the military-industrial complex

President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned us. In a farewell address on January 17, 1961, days before John F. Kennedy would be inaugurated, Eisenhower spoke about what he called the “military-industrial complex,” something that he said was a threat to democratic government. The former general warned that “the immense military establishment” had joined with “a large arms industry” and was capable of acquiring “unwarranted influence” on United States policy. “The potential for the disastrous rise of mi...

Vietnamese American felon facing deportation gets backing from activists, elected leaders

Tin Nguyen arrived from Vietnam as a boy, in 1979, with hope for a better future in a new country. But his refugee story took a bad turn. As the only Vietnamese kid in his grade school classes, he was bullied. As a teen, he joined gangs and, as an adult, he committed crimes. Nguyen ended up doing 20 years for murder and robbery. But Nguyen turned his life around in prison. And, last year, after his sentence was commuted, he was given a chance at freedom. That’s when he was picked up for deportat...

Disney+’s comedy ‘Earth To Ned’ mixes celebrity talk show with alien abduction

When Eliza Skinner interviewed for a writing job on “Earth to Ned,” a new Disney+ series in which a celebrity-obsessed alien decides he’d rather host a late-night talk show than destroy planet Earth, the comedian and writer says it seemed too good to be true. “I was a little skeptical because it was too perfect for me,” Skinner says. “I love sci-fi.
