Southern California mountain lions face possible extinction, study finds

Hemmed in by freeways isolating them from larger populations nearby, the mountain lions of the Santa Ana and Santa Monica mountains face a moderate to near-certain chance for extinction in the coming decades unless new cats find a way into the ranges, according to a study published today in the journal Ecological Applications. Only once before have researchers recorded a mountain lion population with so little genetic diversity as these two Southern California “habitat islands.” Small population...

A New World of Gods and Monsters: A Panel of Horror Experts Pick Who Should Direct These Classic Characters

Universal has announced that all systems are “Go!” on an Invisible Man reboot to be written and directed by Leigh Whannell ( Upgrade ), with the horror maestros at Blumhouse steering the ship. Sorry, “Dark Universe.” Blumhouse’s involvement teases the capability to reboot Universal’s entire classic monster catalog should The Invisible Man rake in profits, which – by Blumhouse’s margin-friendly methods – shouldn’t be an outstanding ask. Pretty big news for horror fans. In looking towards ...

What the Oilers Need to Be Better Next Season

Edmonton Oilers fans have suffered through 11 out of the previous 12 seasons with their team out of the playoffs. The worst part about the now-done tenure of Peter Chiarelli is that he took over an Oilers roster with hope and scoring depth in need of some significant tweaking and left the team with very little flexibility, no scoring depth and still in need of major change. My summary of Chiarelli’s regime reviewed the dire roster outlook left by the previous general manager. We could spen...

Voting Rights: Trump DOJ Takes New Position On Oversight Of Texas’ Voting Rules

Texas state officials’ claims that nearly 100,000 noncitizens may have been registered to vote in the state are falling apart, and concerns raised about the state’s methodology have turned out to be valid. After the secretary of state advised county election officials to vet a list of 95,000 alleged noncitizen voters, county after county has found hundreds of duplicates and thousands of people on the list who are actually citizens. One was a naturalized El Paso County elections staffer. While th...

A lawsuit alleging that Michigan’s GOP-controlled legislature engaged in partisan gerrymandering is heading to trial Tuesday after a panel of federal judges rejected efforts by Democratic Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and plaintiffs to settle the case. This development sets up an impending face-off between Benson and Republicans in the legislature that neither side wanted.

Voting Rights: Will Iowa Be The Next State To Let Felons Vote?

Republican Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds is looking to roll back the state’s ban on felon voting, she announced this week. Iowa is one of three states with constitutions that permanently ban convicted felons from voting unless the governor choses to restore the felon’s franchise. Reynolds proposed in her Condition of the State speech a constitutional amendment, which would need to go through the legislature, to change the current system, though the details of the proposal are still unclear.

Oilers Looking Ahead to Expansion Draft

The NHL announced on Dec. 4 what had been expected for months — Seattle will become the league’s 32nd team in 2021-22. This means there will also be another expansion draft. The Edmonton Oilers were fortunate to only lose Griffin Reinhart last summer, despite how bad it looked to give up a player that cost them a first and second-round pick. However, chances are the Oilers will likely lose a more valuable asset in the next expansion draft. Just like in 2017 when the Vegas Golden Knights jo...
