Mendy’s late strike puts Real Madrid in sight of Champions League quarters

Bergamo (Italy) (AFP) – Ferland Mendy scored late as Real Madrid beat 10-man Atalanta 1-0 on Wednesday to close in on the Champions League quarter-finals. The French left-back’s strike in Bergamo came four minutes from time in a last 16 first leg game which the hosts played a man down for over 70 minutes as Zinedine Zidane’s side hold the advantage heading into the second leg in Madrid on March 16. Atalanta had attacked early but the game was transformed when Swiss midfielder Remo Freuler was h...

Federal judge says California can enforce net neutrality law

By ADAM BEAM | The Associated Press SACRAMENTO  — A federal judge on Tuesday ruled that California can for the first time enforce its tough net neutrality law, clearing the way for the state to ban internet providers from slowing down or blocking access to websites and applications that don’t pay for premium service. Former Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill in 2018, making California the first state to pass a net neutrality law. Open internet advocates hoped the law would spur Congress and other ...

State OKs $600 stimulus payments to 5.7 million Californians

By Adam Beam | The Associated Press California lawmakers on Monday cleared the way for 5.7 million people to get at least $600 in one-time payments, part of a state-sized coronavirus relief package aimed at helping lower-income people weather what they hope is the last legs of the pandemic. The state Legislature passed the bill by a wide margin on Monday, moving faster than their counterparts in Congress who are also considering another round of stimulus checks for the nation. Gov. Gavin Newsom ...

Valencia’s new COVID-19 lab pushes back after report of ‘significant deficiencies’

A Valencia COVID-19 testing lab that was found to have “significant deficiencies” during a  recent state inspection says it has corrected the problems and believes the facility is not in danger of closure. The $25 million Valencia Branch Laboratory at 28545 Livingston Ave. was unveiled in late October and began processing tests Nov. 1. The 134,000-square-foot facility was converted for its new use by the Massachusetts-based diagnostics company PerkinElmer, which operates the lab under a $1.7 bil...

U.S. tops 500,000 virus deaths, matching the toll of 3 wars

The COVID-19 death toll in the U.S. topped 500,000 Monday, all but matching the number of Americans killed in World War II, Korea and Vietnam combined. The lives lost, as recorded by Johns Hopkins University, are about equal to the population of Kansas City, Missouri, and greater than that of Miami; Raleigh, North Carolina; or Omaha, Nebraska. And despite the rollout of vaccines since mid-December, a closely watched model from the University of Washington projects more than 589,000 dead by June ...

LAUSD superintendent believes April 9 reopening still feasible for elementary schools

Los Angeles Unified schools Superintendent Austin Beutner on Monday, Feb. 22, doubled down on his challenge to elected officials to get elementary campuses in the nation’s second-largest school district up and running by April 9, insisting it can be done if vaccines are prioritized for school employees. And in anticipation that a more general school reopening can occur by then, the district will resume providing child care, one-one-one and small group instruction, special education services and ...

Inspectors find ‘deficiencies’ at virus test lab in Valencia

By DON THOMPSON | The Associated Press Inspectors found “significant deficiencies” at California’s new coronavirus testing laboratory, problems that state officials on Monday, Feb. 22, partly blamed on the rapid ramp-up they required from the lab’s private operator under terms of a $1.4 billion contract. A fraction of 1% of the more than 1.5 million tests processed at the Valencia Branch Laboratory had problems, the state said in a preliminary report, but Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. ...

Max Homa brings it all back home, wins at Riviera

After he hiccuped his first chance to win his favorite golf tournament in the world on his favorite golf course in the world, Max Homa put one foot in front of the other. He walked from the 18th green to the 10th tee. He had been three-and-a-half curvy feet away from winning the Genesis Open, with Tiger Woods bearing the trophy. “It’s pretty embarrassing missing a putt that short in front of him,” Homa would say. Now he was in a playoff with Tony Finau, who had just shot seven-under-par 64 at Ri...

Are mushrooms growing under your bed? This book suggests you might want them to

It seems that people are increasingly turning to plants and gardening for consolation, exercise, and exploration during these pandemic times. Worlds of discovery await them. A serious gardener wears many hats: botanist, entomologist, weed scientist, plant pathologist, soil scientist, irrigation specialist. I also believe there is a back-to-the-land desire in all of us, although it may have been diminished by our ever more fervent worship of convenience in the high-tech era. Although its title is...

Alexander: Can Sam Burns seal the deal at Riviera?

Sam Burns has been in this spot before, twice this season alone. Maybe it will help this weekend. The 24-year-old who starred at LSU had the 36-hole lead in the season-opening Safeway Open in Napa last September, two shots ahead at 15-under-par. He finished tied for seventh. He had the 54-hole lead eight weeks later in Houston, leading by a shot at 9-under at a venue a little less than four hours driving time from his hometown of Shreveport, La. He started the final round with a bogey and double...

Lethal Messi leads Barca to thumping Alaves win ahead of PSG test

Madrid (AFP) – Barcelona might not be able to catch Atletico Madrid but they may fancy their chances against Paris Saint-Germain after Lionel Messi scored twice in a 5-1 thrashing of Alaves on Saturday.  Messi fired in two sensational long-range efforts and would have had a hat-trick at Camp Nou had a dubious VAR decision in the first half not ruled Antoine Griezmann offside.  He did tee up a second of the night for the 21-year-old Francisco Trincao and was instrumental in Junior Firpo adding a...

LA County scrambles to solve coronavirus vaccine riddle, as state grows eligibility list

“Breaking news” from Sacramento — California officials’ announcement that as many as 6 million additional people may be eligible for the coronavirus vaccine, including people age 16-64 who have high-risk health conditions — left Los Angeles County health officials with a quandary. “I think this is sort of breaking news and we’re going to have to spend some time to think about what the implications are for our planning,” said Dr. Paul Simon, the county’s chief science officer. “But it certainly  ...

De Jong steers Barca to Elche win without suspended Messi

Madrid (AFP) – Barcelona won again without the suspended Lionel Messi on Sunday as goals from Frenkie de Jong and Riqui Puig were enough to secure a scruffy 2-0 win over Elche in La Liga. De Jong poked the ball over the line just before half-time at the Martinez Valero, which would have proved a suitably scrappy winner before Puig came off the bench to head in a second late on.  Despite an uninspiring performance, Ronald Koeman will be relieved to see Barca make it two consecutive victories wit...

Disneyland’s decision to kill the AP program prompted Universal Studios Hollywood, Knott’s Berry Farm, Six Flags Magic Mountain and Legoland California to announce they would not be jettisoning their passholder and membership programs. ...

5 vaccination mega-centers open in L.A. County today – but are there enough doses to stock them?

Fueled by an increasingly uncertain supply of much-coveted coronavirus vaccines, Los Angeles County aimed to roll out five new large-scale vaccination centers, all at high-profile settings around the region, on Tuesday, Jan. 19. The array of new vaccination centers will be in addition to the giant parking-lot clinic at Dodger Stadium — perhaps the largest vaccination site in the nation — and 75 smaller sites the county is already operating. Though all the sites are quite recognizable to Southlan...
