CIF-SS commissioner Rob Wigod spots big differences between high school, club football

CIF Southern Section commissioner Rob Wigod doesn’t believe it’s his role to have an official position on club football. But make no mistake, he sees plenty of differences between his organization’s brand and the growing venture. “Club football is not high school football,” Wigod said during an interview on Wednesday, Jan. 20, one day after the section canceled playoffs for football and other fall sports because of the pandemic. “It’s not Friday Night Lights. It’s not what education-based athlet...

Families Of CA Inmates Who’ve Died Of COVID Blame Spread Of Virus On Inmate Transfers

DETROIT (CBS13/AP) — Families of men incarcerated at Michigan’s Kinross Correctional Facility believed its remote location would spare it from a deadly COVID-19 outbreak.

One in every five state and federal prisoners in the United States has tested positive for the coronavirus, a rate more than four times as high as the general population.

Untethered from the office, urban tenants are flocking to the Inland Empire

Prophetess Branchcomb called her home office “my piece of paradise” before the coronavirus pandemic hit. But after shelter-in-place orders forced her husband and kids to study and work from home, their 2,000-square-foot rental house in Cerritos felt more like a tiny box. “Everyone else came home and took my piece of paradise,” said Branchcomb, finance director for a Hollywood entertainment company. “We needed more space.” On Saturday, Nov. 21, Branchcomb and her family of five moved to a house ...

Southern Californians face rainy weekend, snow in some spots

Chino tied for 1st place as the hottest spot in the U.S. on Thursday (along with near Ramona, AZ) the National Weather Service said, but the thermostat is about to take a deep dive.

Don’t be afraid of mistakes, says UCLA professor, fourth woman to win Nobel Prize in physics

What are the key components to snaring a Nobel Prize in physics? Be passionate. Be persistent.
