As the City of Angels begins to look like City of Capone

Chicago has a reputation for a history of political corruption and official lawlessness dating back at least as far as Prohibition. In one vintage joke, a thirsty visitor to the city flags down a cab driver. “Do you know where I can get a drink?” he asks. “You see that church?” says the cab driver, pointing to an ornate building. “That church?” the visitor repeats. “Yeah,” says the cab driver, “That’s the only place in town where you can’t get a drink.” Despite that city’s tradition of indiffere...

Effort to introduce limits on donations from some developers making a comeback at LA City Hall

A proposal to restrict political campaign donations from real estate developers has gotten little traction over the past two years at City Hall, but it is getting a second chance amid an FBI investigation into possible corruption related to the approvals of downtown Los Angeles development projects. Six Los Angeles City Council members introduced a motion Tuesday calling for a ban on contributions from developers seeking approval on certain projects in the city of Los Angeles.

Expect Clippers’ 3-point surge against Pelicans to be exception, not the rule

PLAYA VISTA — In character as the NBA’s fourth-best 3-point shooting team, the Clippers made 50 percent of their 3-point attempts in Monday’s 121-117 loss to New Orleans. Out of character for the team averaging fewer than 25 3-point attempts per game (the second-fewest in the NBA), the Clippers took a season-high 36 attempts from behind the arc, letting it fly from deep as if they were Boston Celtics, who average the third-most 3-point attempts in the league. Seven Clippers made at least one 3-p...

Jeff Bezos, Donald Trump and crony capitalism

Donald Trump’s Tweet dubbing Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s billionaire founder, “Jeff Bozo” reveals more than the locker room MO of our president. Our country’s roots are in England, where people of importance are knighted. In America, we now have our own version of knighthood: a nickname from Donald Trump. Amazon is this little hidden gem you may not have heard of where you can buy things.  It’s just like eBay except the Amazon stuff doesn’t show up at your house smelling like cigarette smoke and moth b...

Netflix is raising its prices – how much will you pay?

By MICHAEL LIEDTKE SAN FRANCISCO — Netflix is raising its U.S. prices by 13 percent to 18 percent, its biggest increase since the company launched its streaming service 12 years ago.

How to fill a commercial real estate vacancy — QUICKLY!

Had I authored this column at the beginning of 2017, the advice would have been much different: list, field offers, choose the best one, enter contract, close! Simple.

Extended shutdown of SEC could delay IPOs, ripple through market, experts warn

By Renae Merle, The Washington Post The shuttering of the Securities and Exchange Commission during a prolonged government shutdown could ripple throughout the markets, including slowing some highly anticipated stock offerings by companies such as Uber and Lyft, securities experts say. The agency provides day-to-day guidance to companies weighing what to disclose to shareholders and must sign off on most initial public stock offerings, or IPOs.

Air taxis could fly people across major cities by ‘mid-2020s,’ company says

By Peter Holley, The Washington Post In traffic-clogged cities such as Houston, Atlanta, New York and Los Angeles, it can take hours to drive a few miles during rush hour. For years, inventors have been working toward a potential solution: vertical takeoff and landing aircraft. Though some know them as “flying cars,” early prototypes more closely resemble a hybrid version of an airplane and a helicopter with a hint of drone, rather than a conventional automobile. Among the most highly anticipate...

Rebel drone bombs Yemen military parade, kills at least 6

By AHMED AL-HAJ SANAA, Yemen — A bomb-laden drone launched by Yemen’s Shiite rebels exploded over a military parade for the Saudi-led coalition and its allies on Thursday near the southern port city of Aden, killing at least six people in a brazen attack that threatened U.N.-brokered peace efforts to end the yearslong war tearing at the Arab world’s poorest nation. The attack at the Al-Anad Air Base, where American special forces once led their fight against Yemen’s al-Qaida branch, targeted hig...

Tesla breaks ground on$5 billion factory in Shanghai

After four years of planning, Tesla Inc. finally broke ground on its planned $5 billion factory in the world’s biggest auto market. But the timing couldn’t be more inauspicious. Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk and some Shanghai officials, including Mayor Ying Yong, on Monday attended a function at a site near the city kicking off construction of what would be the electric-vehicle maker’s first car-manufacturing facility outside the U.S. While the ceremony` marked a new journey for Tesla, it co...

Emmanuel Newsom?

A youthful and handsome appearance, the blessings of the autocrats and clerics of our times, and a fawning media — all these belonged to French President Emmanuel Macron just a year ago. He was praised as everything from the “new leader of the Free World” to Europe’s Reagan. Today Macron’s presidency is adrift, paralyzed by grassroots opposition to his policies — mostly from the middle and working classes — and a popularity rating about half of that suffered by Donald Trump. Is this the fate tha...

Bad stuff the stock market worried about is starting to happen

By Sarah Ponczek and Vildana Hajric, Bloomberg All of a sudden, the fundamentals aren’t looking as strong. First it was Apple Inc.’s $5 billion revenue miss, hints of which lopped 30 percent from its stock over three months. Now it’s a closely watched gauge of U.S. factory activity, which dropped to a two-year low and missed every estimate in a Bloomberg survey. What’s going on? Over and over in the fourth quarter, as the S&P 500 plunged 19.8 percent to the brink of a bear market, investors hear...

Stocks plunge after Apple forecasts slower iPhone sales in China

By MARLEY JAY NEW YORK — Stocks went into a steep slide Thursday morning after Apple reported a slowdown in iPhone sales over the holidays in China, a hugely important market for the company.

China lands spacecraft on ‘dark’ side of moon in world first

By KEN MORITSUGU BEIJING — China’s burgeoning space program achieved a first on Thursday: a landing on the so-called dark side of the moon. Three nations — the United States, the former Soviet Union and more recently China — have sent spacecraft to the near side of the moon, which faces Earth, but this landing is the first-ever on the far side. The China National Space Administration said the 10:26 a.m. touchdown of the Chang’e 4 craft has “opened up a new chapter in human lunar exploration.” A ...

Strava Festive 500; my experience and thoughts on how to be successful

The Festive 500 is a Strava Challenge put on each year, this year is the eighth time it’s been run. The premise is easy 500km (310 and change in miles) in the eight days between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. The only caveat is that the rides have to be outside, no trainer, no rollers, just hard, cold tarmac (or gravel or dirt or snow). I’ve seen it come around for the last few years and have accumulated the miles in the normal course of training/riding. Most years I would usually total somew...
