Alexander: Roz Wyman is still the Dodgers’ No. 1 fan

If this were a normal World Series – like anything in 2020 is normal, right? – Roz Wyman would be at Dodger Stadium for Tuesday night’s Game 6 in her field level seat, on the third base side of home plate and adjacent to where the umpires enter the field. It is not in The Ravine, of course. The Dodgers have made Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, their second home during this neutral-site postseason, and that is where they will attempt to win the World Series and end 32 years of waiting. But ...

Whicker: Like the Dodgers that he tormented, Steve Pearce has put 2018 behind

This time, Steve Pearce is at a safe distance. He is at home in Tampa, sometimes hunting deer in North Florida, fishing, hanging out with his kids, watching baseball only if he’s exhausted a long list of better things to do. He will not be bringing destiny’s bat from the on-deck circle and enjoying the week of his life, as he did for Boston in the 2018 World Series, at the Dodgers’ expense. “I tell everybody, I picked a great time to get hot,” Pearce said. “I don’t really look back at it that of...

Three types of Wolves trades illustrate value of No. 1 pick

It's officially speculation season (Szn?) in the NBA, with the finals wrapped up and the condensed offseason primed to deliver the draft in a few weeks as well as free agency and a number of trades. Nobody loves speculation quite like people who talk about sports for a living (unless it's the people who listen to the people who talk about sports for a living), and since I guess I fit into BOTH categories I listened with interest to Zach Lowe's recent ESPN podcast on which Bill Simmons was a gues...

This Week In Trailers: Fireball, White Noise, City Hall, Farewell Amor, The Reagans

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week, we’re dealing with white supremacy, things from space crashing into the earth, a legendary documentarian debuts his latest, look at...

Contaminated Exide plant turned over to state environmental trust

An environmental trust will take over the toxic Exide battery recycling plant in Vernon to prevent its bankrupt owners from abandoning the heavily contaminated facility, the Department of Toxic Substances Control announced Friday. Despite its earlier objections, California agreed to creation of the trust after a federal judge on Thursday rejected an emergency request to prevent Exide from dumping the site Oct. 30. The trust “avoids the many legal challenges posed by abandonment and ensures an or...

Whicker: Walker Buehler’s Octobers belong in an era when people were actually watching

If nobody sees Walker Buehler throw enough heavy baseballs to scatter the Tampa Bay Rays like tenpins, does it still count? The Dodgers think so. They lead this World Series 2-1, thanks to a 6-2 Game 3 win on Friday that continued Buehler’s blossoming into a legend of the fall. It wasn’t just him. Justin Turner took Charlie Morton deep in the first inning, then snatched Mike Zunino’s bullet and turned it into a double play in the third inning. Zunino was the ninth batter to face Buehler. It took...

Boston startups expand region’s venture capital footprint

This year has shaken up venture capital, turning a hot early start to 2020 into a glacial period permeated with fear during the early days of COVID-19. That ice quickly melted as venture capitalists discovered that demand for software and other services that startups provide was accelerating, pushing many young tech companies back into growth mode, and investors back into the check-writing arena. Boston has been an exemplar of the trend, with early pandemic caution dissolving into rapid-fire dea...

NC GOPer Tries To Clean Up Racist Attack On Those Who ‘Ruin White Males Running For Office’

Madison Cawthorn, the Republican candidate running for former Rep. Mark Meadows’ (R-NC) old seat, scrambled to put out the fire sparked on Thursday by his racist attack involving Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), who is Black, and a journalist who volunteered for Booker’s 2020 presidential campaign. Cawthorn had posted the now-revised broadside on MoeTaxes.com, his website about Democratic opponent Moe Davis. The post attacked Davis’ ties to reporter and ex-Boston University dean Tom Fiedler, who “qui...

Google removes 3 Android apps for children, with 20M+ downloads between them, over data collection violations

When it comes to apps, Android leads the pack with nearly 3 million apps in its official Google Play store. The sheer volume also means that sometimes iffy apps slip through the cracks. Researchers at the International Digital Accountability Council (IDAC), a non-profit watchdog based out of Boston, found that a trio of popular and seemingly innocent-looking apps aimed at younger users were recently found to be violating Google’s data collection policies, potentially accessing users’ Android ...

California’s last-ditch effort to stop abandonment of toxic LA County plant fails

A U.S. District Court judge has denied California’s request to delay Exide Technologies’ abandonment of a heavily contaminated battery recycling plant in Los Angeles County until a newly filed appeal is resolved. The state Department of Toxic Substances Control filed its appeal Sunday, alongside an emergency motion to prevent Exide from dumping the site before the matter is heard. Attorneys for the state argued the property poses an “imminent and substantial” harm to public health once Exide sto...

Dodgers marvel at Mookie Betts’ everyday excellence

ARLINGTON, Texas — Mookie Betts finished second to Mike Trout in the voting for the American League MVP Award in 2016. There was no shame in that. After all, Mike Trout wins the award every year, or seems to, and has been acclaimed as the greatest player of his generation, one of the best in baseball history. Betts had just finished his second full season in the big leagues with the Boston Red Sox. He received nine first-place votes (to Trout’s 19) following a season that saw him make his first ...

WoHo wants to make constructing buildings fast, flexible and green with reusable “components”

Buildings are the bedrocks of civilization — places to live, places to work (well, normally, in a non-COVID-19 world) and places to play. Yet how we conceive buildings, architect them for their uses, and ultimately construct them on a site has changed remarkably little over the past few decades. Housing and building costs continue to rise, and there remains a slow linear process from conception to construction for most projects. Why can’t the whole process be more flexible and faster? Well, a tr...
