Climate change and California’s water supply

California, as everyone knows, receives virtually all of its precipitation during a few fall and winter months and in 2019, some early rain and snow storms promised a bountiful water year. This year, Mother Nature kept that promise in Southern California, where precipitation is running at or above the normal, but Northern California — far more important from a water supply standpoint — has been a different story. The north has seen almost no precipitation since Christmas, the all-important Sierr...

My Trip to Vietnam, Singapore, and Qatar

For three weeks in late January and early February, I travelled to Asia, spending two weeks in Saigon, a few days in Singapore, and about 48 hours in Doha, Qatar. Here are some of the things I saw and did and ate. Note: this is a long post, maybe the longest thing I’ve posted here in many years. But I think it’s a quick read — pack a snack, stay hydrated, and you’ll be alright. Saigon, Vietnam I flew to Saigon via Doha on Qatar Airways. On my seatback screen, I watched the flight map as we...

How much is Antonio Brown worth?

Scandal-embroiled NFL free agent Antonio Brown was once one of the “world's highest-paid athletes” and ranked among Forbes' 30 under 30. But 2019, and even so far in 2020, has not been kind to the wide receiver, who was at one time the highest-paid NFL athlete to play that position, Forbes reported. Brown, 31, was the 24th highest-paid athlete, globally, in 2017, when he was worth an estimated $31.9 million, according to the outlet.

Pickleball craze grows in N.B. — even though many people haven't heard of it

When Karle Scott wins a point on the pickleball court, he lightly taps his partner's paddle with his. Scott is turning 80 this summer. But when he scurries up and down the court chasing after a bright orange ball — you'd never know it. "It gives me a reason to get up in the morning," he said, while taking a break from playing at the Currie Center in Fredericton."I look forward to it every day."When he was younger, Scott often played hockey, baseball and badminton.About three years ago,...

McDavid shines in return from injury, Oilers hold off Kings

LOS ANGELES — The Edmonton Oilers added one key player with the return of Connor McDavid on Sunday night after he missed six games with a quad injury. Then they picked up another, trading for veteran defenseman Mike Green from Detroit. McDavid gave Edmonton a boost with a goal and two assists in a 4-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings, then turned his attention to the Oilers’ addition on the blue line. “It’s exciting. I’ve been on the other side where you’re losing friends to trade and all that, so...

Whicker: Kobe Bryant and the triumph of clarity

One hopes Monday is an uncloudy day. It is Kobe Bryant’s final sellout at Staples Center. No one was more clear. He knew where he was and where he wanted to get, and there was nothing but blue sky in between. Doubt and hesitation and, especially, distraction dared not enter his world. He was blessed with a mother lode of talent and smarts, and yet he refused to trust them. The gift that he left us was clarity. That, more than anything, prompted the massive arboretum that spread throughout L.A. L...

Why can’t California create viable national leaders anymore?

Once upon a time, Hollywood and California seemed to be leading the country, for better or worse, with outsized public figures and sometimes compelling, or at least entertaining, ideas. California politicians like Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan achieved national power, establishing the primary strands of conservative thought. California’s liberals were less successful, but at least they were influential. Jerry Brown never made it to the White House — he would have been our first Zen president —...

Sherrod Brown Emphasizes Differences Between Democratic Candidates, Donald Trump

No matter who wins the nomination among Democrats running for president, one prominent Ohio Democrat believes it will all come down to highlighting contrasts for people. Sherrod Brown says once the candidates stop fighting each other for the party nod, they can start pointing out that President Trump is working to undo all the things Democrats stand for—such as overtime pay for workers and expanded medical coverage for people in need. Brown decided not to make a run for president himself. He has...

A strange bedfellows alliance on bail reform repeal in California

Senate Bill 10, passed by the Legislature and signed by then-Gov. Jerry Brown in 2018, violated one of the unwritten rules of making public policy in California. The measure, one of several criminal justice reforms championed by Brown during his second governorship, would eliminate cash bail for those accused of crimes in favor of a new “risk assessment” program. Criminal justice reformers have clamored for years to eliminate cash bail, saying it discriminates against poor defendants who lack th...

How Much of Your Happiness Is Under Your Control?

Do you know the happiness pie chart? If you’ve read a book or listened to a talk about happiness in the past 15 years, there’s a good chance you heard that 50 percent of our happiness is determined by our genes, 40 percent by our activities, and 10 percent by our life circumstances. Neat and tidy, the pie chart—originally proposed in a 2005 paper by researchers Sonja Lyubomirsky, Kennon M. Sheldon, and David Schkade—painted a clear picture of what contributes to our well-being. Unfortunately fo...

Newsom’s spending more, saving less

When Jerry Brown returned to the governorship in 2011, he faced what he called a “wall of debt” from years of severe economic recession and deficit-riddled state budgets. Accordingly, he made paying off that debt, more than $30 billion, and armoring the budget against future recessions his top priority. Brown persuaded voters to approve what was supposed to be a temporary tax increase, mostly higher income taxes on the affluent, and later a “rainy day fund” that would cushion the effects of rece...

Antonio Brown plans to talk to teams at NFL combine to get back into the league

The 31-year-old Brown appeared in just one game last season due to both behavior and off-the-field issues.

Over his first nine seasons in the NFL, Brown emerged as the best receiver in football.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion – What Can We Agree on and What Can’t We?

I recently attended part of RODA’s 5th Annual Diversity Conference which was entitled Resilience in Challenging Times. I was particularly interested in hearing the panel Building Consensus: The Future of EDI at the LSO. There were four panelists; two from the Stop the SOP slate and two who had been members of the Law Society Challenges Task Force. The context for the panel appeared to me to be intentionally post-Statement of Principles, to address questions beyond the debate about compelled spee...

Celtics' Jaylen Brown (calf) to miss Thursday's game against Clippers

The 23-year-old will be a big loss for the C's against the Clippers -- especially since LA sits third in the Western Conference with a 37-17 record.

How We Connect (and Why We Might Not)

When we're engaged with others in any setting--on a team in our professional lives, in a learning environment like a classroom or a T-group [1], and even with our friends and family at home--we have the ability to connect with those around us across the dimensions of space and time. In space, there is the HERE of our immediate community, as well as the THERE of the other communities of which we are (or have been) members. In time, there is the NOW of our current experience, as well as the T...
