Toronto International Film Festival 2021 Line-up Will Include ‘Dune’ and ‘Last Night in Soho’

TIFF, the Toronto International Film Festival, is back this September. Last year, the festival offered a hybrid platform of both limited in-person screenings and digital offerings. A hybrid approach will still be in place this year, but from the looks of things, this year’s TIFF is trying to go back to a format similar to the pre-pandemic era. Of course, this raises a big question: who gets to go to TIFF in person this year? At this very moment, the Canadian border remains closed to the U.S., a...

Hornets’ LaMelo Ball selected NBA Rookie of the Year

By STEVE REED CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — LaMelo Ball thought he would become NBA Rookie of the Year long before he joined the league. That belief became a reality Wednesday night as Ball’s versatility as a passer, scorer and rebounder earned the Charlotte Hornets point guard the honor despite missing 21 games with a fractured wrist. Ball, who grew up in Chino Hills and played at Chino Hills High School before an unusual journey to the NBA,  was the runaway winner, receiving 84 of the 99 first-place ...

Chandan Khanna/AFP/Getty Images The economy is reopening but millions are still jobless as openings sit at record highs. In response to this 'labor shortage,' 25 GOP-led states are ending federal unemployment benefits early. Ex-Obama administration economist Heidi Shierholz says the minimum wage should go up instead.

Call me mellow yellow

I’m not exactly mad about saffron, but I do love the seasonal yellows I am seeing throughout the garden. As it happens, a yellow shade, Illuminating, is one of the 2021 Pantone colors. (The other pick is a nice gray.) Usually, I couldn’t care less about the shades Pantone anoints yearly, and get annoyed when they make their way into plant marketing, but this one had me nodding in agreement. Then there was the article proclaiming, “If there were a color that represents happiness in the garden, i...

Whicker: Terance Mann, Luke Kennard help Clippers move to next act

Terance Mann was last season’s Rookie of the Year, at least for the Agua Caliente Clippers. Luke Kennard also did his time in the G-League, on the buses and in the hotels without room service. He was best known, unkindly, as the guy the Detroit Pistons drafted in 2017, one pick before Utah took Donovan Mitchell. Their stories had changed significantly before the Clippers entered this first-round playoff series with the Dallas Mavericks. But if the Clippers had to go that deep, you figured they w...
