Thousands set to march in LA to commemorate Armenian Genocide

LOS ANGELES – Thousands of people will march through Hollywood and the Mid-City area today to mark the 104th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, again calling on Turkey — and the United States — to officially recognize that it occurred. Turkey has refused to recognize the killings of 1.5 million Armenians beginning in 1915 as a genocide. Americans presidents have also declined to do so, calling the deaths at the hands of the Ottoman Empire an atrocity, but not a genocide. Thousands of Armenian...

Even Bernie Sanders recognizes the high cost of open borders

Sen. Bernie Sanders was speaking at a town hall in Oskaloosa, Iowa, earlier this month when someone in the audience complained that he was an “advocate for open borders.” Sanders denied it. “If you open the borders, my God, there’s a lot of poverty in this world, and you’re going to have people from all over the world,” he said. “And I don’t think that’s something that we can do at this point. Can’t do it.” A lot of people might argue that “if” is not the way to frame that question. Sanders may ...

Senate Bill 50 is the bold answer to California’s housing crisis we need

The housing supply crisis threatens to make homeowners an endangered species in California unless our leaders act decisively and quickly. California faces a major housing shortage. We’re ranked 49th out of the 50 states in homes per capita. In fact, it’s estimated that our state needs 3.5 million more homes to provide housing adequate for California’s population growth. States such as New York have added nearly 80 percent more housing units than California relative to population growth. At the s...

What’s the air quality in SoCal really like?

Angelenos as of late have been thinking to themselves: why was this winter season so cold? As the recent superbloom has shown, Los Angeles has been blessed with lots of rain. In fact, since October of last year, Los Angeles received 18 inches of rain. To put this in perspective, the city on average, sees about 14 inches of rain in a full year.

UCI professor shows how plastics have become a killing machine for coral reefs

With her bare hands, UCI Professor Joleah Lamb on Monday fished out pieces of plastic waste she had collected that morning from Newport Beach: a sports drink bottle, a trash bag, child’s sand toy, crumpled foam cup and some straws. “Oh, wait,” she said, letting go of a particularly grimy piece. “I am going to use these gloves,” and she slipped on the latex protectors before picking up the degraded water bottle again. “There are a million bacteria on it.” Students from the UCI School of Biolo...

Green Solar Technologies posts growth of 250 percent

There aren’t many businesses that claim growth of 250 percent in two years, but Green Solar Technologies can. The North Hollywood company accomplished it largely by going where other solar companies have failed to tread — or have treaded lightly. Edward Harner, Green Solar’s chief operating officer, explains it this way: Where opportunity exists “Our growth has been fueled heavily by an expansion into the Midwest and into areas with smaller populations,” he said. “Places like Montana and Wyomi...

Revisiting David Poile’s Drafts – 2002

For the past few weeks, I’ve been diving into David Poile’s draft history as general manager of the Nashville Predators. Since he’s been the franchise’s only GM, he’s been at the helm for every draft since 1998. Beginning with that first draft, I’m working forward to the present, with this installment covering the 2002 Draft. For reference, here are the drafts I’ve covered so far: 1998: Franchise’s Inaugural Draft1999: Erat Leads to Forsberg2000: Scott Hartnell and Nothing Else2001: Hamhuis a...

The ABI is just plain wrong about .05 blood alcohol content legislation

AB 1713, or Liam’s Law, was introduced by Assemblywoman Autumn Burke to save lives. It’s that simple. The bill would lower the state’s legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level for impaired driving from .08 to .05. Far too many deaths occur because impaired drivers get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol. My husband and I know the pain that comes with these tragedies – we lost our 15-month old son, Liam, to an impaired driver. We do not want any other parent or family to lose someone th...

In Valley neighborhoods, fight against upzoning bill gets fiery as it moves through state Senate

Community groups in the South Valley began deliberating the implications of Senate Bill 50 — pitched as a way to solve California’s housing crisis by overriding local zoning laws to allow denser development in transit- and job-rich neighborhoods — months before it was released in March by its author, state Sen. Scott Weiner. But the push against the proposed legislation is heating up now that it has cleared its first hurdle in the Legislature and is facing a tougher vote Wednesday. While most Ca...

On Friday, one day before the 20-year anniversary of the 1999 mass shooting at Columbine High School, roughly 200 students at John Burroughs High School in Burbank staged a “walkout” to rally behind gun reform legislation.
