Dennis Moore helps put Santa Anita on the right track

Santa Anita track superintendent Dennis Moore is 71. He says he wants to start slowing down, and his wife of 51 years, Chris, is constantly urging him to do so. “But I keep telling her that’s why we’ve been married for 51 years, because I haven’t been home that much,” he joked during a 25-minute phone interview with the Southern California News Group this week. “She wouldn’t have been able to put up with me otherwise.” Moore’s work day starts at 5:30 a.m. and ends somewhere around 6:30 p.m. That...

Idris Elba Film ‘Concrete Cowboy’ Will Trot Onto Netflix in 2021

The new adaptation of The Witches is almost too much fun (ars technica)

The trailer for The Witches Roald Dahl's 1983 children's fantasy novel The Witches begins with a simple declaration: "This is not a fairy tale." Witches, the unnamed boy narrator claims, are real. They live among us, demons indistinguishable from real women, hell-bent on murdering children. The boy is matter-of-fact about this frightening reality, but also urgent—he is relaying the immediate threat of a global network of bloodthirsty child predators. It's an intimate, conspiratorial opener, dra...

Was Quibi the good kind of startup failure?

Editor’s note: Get this free weekly recap of TechCrunch news that any startup can use by email every Saturday morning (7 a.m. PT). Subscribe here. Startup failure is easy to hold up as a type of martyrdom for progress, especially if the founders are starting out scrappy in the first place and trying to save the world. But heroic narrative gets complicated when the startup failure involves the biggest names in entertainment, dubious product decisions, and well over $1 billion in losses in an alre...

"It’s easier to believe that objects of human skin are made by monsters like Nazis and serial killers, not the well-respected doctors the likes of whom parents want their children to become someday."

Says Megan Rosenbloom, author of "DARK ARCHIVES/A Librarian’s Investigation Into the Science and History of Books Bound in Human Skin," quoted in "Yes, Books Were Bound in Human Skin. An Intrepid Librarian Finds the Proof" by James Hamblin (NYT). In fact, anthropodermic bibliopegy was not the practice of some singularly heinous regime.... Human skin leather looks indistinguishable from that of other mammals, and only recent developments in DNA sequencing technology have made it possible to tell ...

Retro Muscle: Motocrew’s GPZ900R is the business

There’s a lot to be said for a good old-fashioned muscle bike. And in the 1980s, the Kawasaki GPZ900R was the benchmark. It didn’t have any of the nanny state electronics we’re used to today, but the raucous, liquid-cooled DOHC four punched out 113 solid horses—and propelled the GPZ to 150 mph or more. No wonder the producers of the original Top Gun movie selected a GPZ to star alongside Tom Cruise, who knows how to handle a bike. We’ve noticed an uptick in custom GPZs lately, going right ...

56. Pan Am in Vietnam

Crystal Cox/Business Insider During the Vietnam War, Pan Am flew troops in and out of an active war zone on rest and recuperation trips. The flight attendants on those planes didn't get any special training or preparation to deal with some of the horrors they would witness, and when the war was over, they didn't receive recognition from the U.S. government. But their role left a lasting impact, even if their contributions were largely forgotten. Listen on: Apple Podcasts  |  Stitcher  |...

Dodgers’ Kenley Jansen tunes out the noise, tunes up his delivery

ARLINGTON, Texas — The exit velocity has been remarkable. After all, Kenley Jansen is the Dodgers’ all-time saves leader – regular season (317) or postseason (17). He is a three-time All-Star and the only closer to win the Trevor Hoffman Award as the National League’s best reliever in back-to-back seasons. But as his velocity dipped in recent seasons and the ninth innings featured more drama than everyone had become accustomed to, the support for Jansen disappeared with startling speed. Even Dod...

The Geek in Review Ep. 91 – Richard Hsu on Why Law Firms Will Need Lawyers to Return to the Office

We all know that the hybrid workplace is coming to our law firms. That is, where some lawyers are working every day from their office spaces, while others continue to work remotely. Many believe that this will be the permanent workplace of the future, and there is a Pollyannish attitude from some in the industry who think that the past seven months prove that we can do as much remotely, as we can from the office. Richard Hsu of the recruiting firm Lindsey, Major, and Africa is not one of them. ...

Kitchen of the Week: ‘Wes Anderson Meets Provencal’ in West London

“Wes Anderson meets Provençal.” Designer Chris Graves (of Clarence & Graves) is describing his vision for his kitchen renovation. But what does that mean, exactly? For one thing, a memorable palette, in this case “a beautiful soft palette of pink, black and green”; for another, nostalgia for the past via quirky vintage and antique pieces. And then, there’s the more intangible element, a certain joie de vivre that all Wes Anderson sets seem to share: “I wanted it to feel joyous, convivial, bright...
