California prison officials goofed and people died

Gov. Gavin Newsom has unilaterally decided to eliminate California’s death penalty for capital crimes even though it remains in the law. Newsom declared a moratorium on executing any of the 700-plus occupants on San Quentin Prison’s death row, saying, “It has provided no public safety benefit or value as a deterrent. It has wasted billions of taxpayer dollars.” Nevertheless, Newsom’s prison agency, the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, in effect, sentenced dozens of San Quentin inmat...

New California Laws Address Coronavirus, Fires, Law Enforcement

SACRAMENTO (AP) — What a strange legislative year it was. The coronavirus pandemic forced California state lawmakers to twice shut down their sessions for weeks at a time — the first unexpected work stoppage in 158 years. Masked lawmakers tried to limit the number of bills they considered, but still ran out of time on the final night, partly because quarantined Republican senators had to vote remotely. Yet they still managed to pass hundreds of bills, 372 of which were signed into law by Gov. Ga...

Can California nursing homes avoid the next ‘humanitarian crisis?’

Marisela Muñoz never wanted to see the woman who raised her since birth land in a nursing home. But Evangelina C. Martinez, who was Munoz’s aunt but whom she considered her mother, had Alzheimer’s and needed around-the-clock care that Muñoz and her siblings could no longer provide. So eight years ago, they placed the elderly woman at Astoria Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Los Angeles’ Sylmar community. “Mama Eva” ultimately did well at the 218-bed home, joking with her favorite caregivers ...

Cedars-Sinai studies century-old vaccine that may prevent coronavirus

LOS ANGELES — A widely used tuberculosis vaccine is associated with a reduced likelihood of contracting COVID-19, according to a new study by Cedars-Sinai. The findings raise the possibility that a vaccine already approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration may help prevent coronavirus infections or reduce the severity of the disease, Cedars-Sinai said in a statement. The vaccine, known as Bacillus Calmette-Guérin, or BCG, was developed between 1908 and 1921 and is administered to more tha...
