Want to avoid lockdown? You may not like the advice

By Ralph Ellis and Madeline Holcombe | CNN To avoid lockdowns, people in the United States will have to do things that they won’t necessarily want to do, such as wearing masks at indoor gatherings even if they’re vaccinated and having kids mask up in schools, the director of the National Institutes of Health said Monday. “We want to avoid lockdowns at all costs, but that means we’re going to have to do some other things that won’t necessarily be welcomed by people,” Dr. Francis Collins said on A...

How far could Larry Elder go?

“Ladies and gentlemen, the 47th president of the United States (48th at the most), Laurence Allen Elder!” Better known as Larry Elder, the self-anointed, “Sage from South Central” could soon be “The Prophet of Pennsylvania Avenue.” “President Elder?” “Are you drunk, McIntyre?!” Not at the moment, although I am taking large quantities of Motrin for my busted finger. Still, stranger things have happened. Here’s one scenario: Larry wins the September recall election. So far, Elder has played this p...

PETERSON KASHIMA, Japan (AP) — Carli Lloyd, clutch in so many critical moments for the U.S. women’s soccer team, failed to connect against Canada on Monday night and the Americans won’t play for a fifth Olympic gold medal.

Why Southern California is a new EV mecca, with Rivian, Lordstown, and Karma in Irvine

With the click of a mouse, a Karma Automotive technician brings a brand new electric vehicle to life. You sit inside and marvel at the sleek console, the plush seats, the streamlined, jet-age dashboard. Never mind that this new car doesn’t yet exist. Never mind that the driver’s seat you’re sitting on is actually a metal office chair. Thanks to the magic of virtual reality, Karma Automotive’s designers can visualize how a car looks long before they build it. “I can put you inside a car,” said Da...

Q&A with new Bellator champion AJ McKee: ‘This is the beginning’

The Forum has been good to A.J. McKee. And vice versa. In September 2019, McKee and his father and coach, Antonio, made history there at Bellator 228. The Long Beach duo became the first father and son to have fought on the same card in the United States for a major MMA promotion. Antonio, then 49 and fighting for the first time in nearly five years, defeated 47-year-old William Sriyapai by TKO in the second round. His son followed that by knocking out Georgi Karakhanyan in 8 seconds in his open...

Olympic champion Suni Lee adds bronze on uneven bars

TOKYO (AP) — Suni Lee came to Japan to win a gold medal. And she did. Just not the one she really, really wanted. The 18-year-old from Minnesota is a revelation on uneven bars, where her routines are an intricate series of connections and releases completed with so much ease it looks like she’s making it all up on the fly. Only she isn’t. Her mastery is the result of years of hard work. She’s one of the best in the world on it, and she showed it during the all-around final, where her electric se...

Congress fails to extend national COVID eviction ban

By Lisa Mascaro, Michael Casey and Josh Boak | Associated Press WASHINGTON — A nationwide eviction moratorium is set to expire Saturday after President Joe Biden and Democrats in Congress worked furiously but ultimately failed to align on a long-shot strategy to prevent millions of Americans from being forced from their homes during a COVID-19 surge. More than 3.6 million Americans are at risk of eviction, some in a matter of days, as nearly $47 billion in federal housing aid to the states durin...

Florida governor blocks school mask mandates

By Rich McKay | Reuters Florida Governor Ron DeSantis issued an executive order on Friday blocking mask mandates in the state’s schools, saying parents had the right to decide if their children would wear face coverings. The move by DeSantis, a Republican who has opposed strict COVID-19 rules on residents and businesses, overrules a requirement by two Florida counties, Broward and Gadsen, that students cover their faces when they return to class next month. “In Florida, there will be no lockdown...

Just how much hotter and drier is Southern California’s ‘new normal’ weather?

Hotter and drier — those are the new normals for Southern California. Hotter especially in the late summer and fall months, and drier especially in November and March, traditionally the start and end of the region’s rainy season. More triple-digit temperatures each year, too. That assessment comes from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which recently updated what it considers “normal” weather at thousands of locations across the country. The new normals, based on the weather f...

U.S. women’s basketball team beats Japan, 86-69

By DOUG FEINBERG SAITAMA, Japan (AP) — The U.S. women’s basketball team has not looked sharp in its first two wins at the Tokyo Games. Five-time Olympian Sue Bird attributes the pedestrian performances to the lack of practice time with so many new faces on the squad, and just that the rest of the world is catching up to the Americans. “This tournament more than ever feels like a combination of things,” Bird said. “I’m never not going to give credit to other countries for putting out a great prod...

U.S. women survive penalty shootout, reach Olympic soccer semifinals

This time, the United States didn’t falter in a quarterfinal penalty shootout. Goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher made two saves and Megan Rapinoe scored the winner as the U.S. advanced 4-2 on penalty kicks over the Netherlands after the teams were tied 2-2 over 120 minutes in Yokohama, Japan. The Dutch had the storied U.S. soccer team on the back foot in a riveting go-for-broke game featuring the 2019 Women’s World Cup finalists. The penalty shootout was reminiscent of the Rio Games when the Americans we...

Why we ought to be missing Jerry Brown (sort of)

SACRAMENTO – Gubernatorial press conferences typically are public-relations blitzes where governors tell you the wonderful way they are handling every problem and reporters ask lame questions designed to prove to their editors they are on top of things. They’re rarely very interesting, but with former Gov. Jerry Brown the events always were a hoot. “I’ve often used the phrase, from Thomas Hobbes, ‘Bellum omnes contra omnes.’ Or rather, ‘Bellum omni contra omnes. War of all against all.’ It will ...

Zardes, one of the few first-line U.S. players on a mostly junior varsity roster for this tournament, replaced Daryl Dike in the 63rd minute and combined with two other second-half subs, Nicholas Gioacchini and Eryk Williamson.

3 more U.S. medals in swimming; South Africa’s Schoenmaker sets world record

American swimmers added two silvers and a bronze to their growing medal haul in swimming Friday morning, widening their advantage on their rivals in the pool but falling short of the golds they covet most of all. Ryan Murphy won a silver in the men’s 200-meter backstroke, and Lilly King and Annie Lazor earned silver and bronze in the women’s 200-meter breaststroke, beaten to the wall only by a South African, Tatjana Schoenmaker, who set a world record. With four more finals Friday, the Olympic s...
