Southern California teachers share their summer reading lists

It’s beginning to look a lot sunnier here in Southern California, and we don’t just mean the weather. Thanks to vaccine efforts, we are freer to move about. And no one is happier about that than local teachers, who’ve faced particular challenges during the pandemic. Now, we know that summer reading assignments are pretty standard for teachers to give their students over the summer, but we wondered, after such a tough year, what are the titles teachers themselves are looking forward to enjoying? ...

Drata raises $25M Series A to expand its security compliance platform

Inspired by founder’s childhood asthma, NuvoAir raises $12M to tackle respiratory illnesses

You might well have a sleep app that tracks your sleep. I use Sleep Cycle, and have found it has started to even tell me when I cough during the night. It turns out you can run machine learning over how you might cough in the night, to detect changes in the way you cough. That data could inform people with ongoing respiratory illnesses and help them manage their health. This is part of the idea behind NuvoAir, which uses both an app to listen to your night-time coughing and other health data to ...

Senior Living: Is your living room the future of hospital care?

By Julie Appleby, Kaiser Health News Major hospital systems are betting big money that the future of hospital care looks a lot like the inside of patients’ homes. Hospital-level care at home — some of it provided over the internet — is poised to grow after more than a decade as a niche offering, boosted both by medical facilities eager to ease overcrowding during the coronavirus pandemic and growing interest by insurers who want to slow health care spending. But challenges remain, such as decidi...

Comment on blood orange, almond and ricotta cake by michaelcdc

Very interesting, especially the addition of cornmeal. I first had an orange upside down cake from Tatte, a bakery out of Boston, which has opened an outpost in DC. It’s the closest thing we have to Tartine. I liked the glassy orange topping, and the crunchy streusel on the bottom, but the cake in between is pure drudgery. When I made my version of this, I updated a recipe I’d created for my nephew’s wedding cake – a flour-based cake with lemon, thyme, ricotta and olive oil. To make the orange c...

Clippers go forth again without Kawhi Leonard

LOS ANGELES — No news is … no news.
