Birmingham baseball feels absence of Erik Rivas, Johnny Tincher in loss to Arcadia

ARCADIA >> Arcadia sophomore first baseman Mikey Easter has an I.Q. for baseball that is well above average.

Easter went 2-for-3 with a two-run RBI triple in the third inning as Arcadia earned a signature win over defending L.A. City Section champion Birmingham 4-1 in the first round of the Babe Herman Tournament Saturday night. “For me it’s just about comin...

The Wigs & Extensions Celebrity Hairstylists Actually Use

But recently, we realized it's easy to get all the looks we love IRL, because the celebrity secret to amazing hair — which is not so secret, really — is weave.

Extreme fasting: how Silicon Valley is rebranding eating disorders

Fasting diets have rocketed in popularity over the last few years, garnering a number of high-profile fans.

The Future of Web Q&A Panels Should be Cake

Last week, Recode's veteran tech reporter Kara Swisher visibly held an aggressive interview with Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey, who has been on something of a meandering press tour over the last few months, which has led to more questions than it's seemingly answered, as he has avoided specifics, and not taken full responsibility for many of the negative impacts the platform he created has spawned.Despite Kara's noble attempts, this round didn't fare much better, largely due to Twitter's f...

Jack Dorsey’s latest idea for kinda-editable tweets sounds like a reasonable compromise

We’re probably no closer to getting an edit button for tweets than in the past several years (what’s taking so long?), but I’m glad to hear that the company is thinking about it in earnest, as CEO Jack Dorsey revealed. Recode reported that Dorsey recently described a possible implementation that wouldn’t exactly be an ‘edit button,’ but would rather let you clarify or annotate a tweet you’ve already posted. Here’s Dorsey talking about it at a Goldman Sachs event in San Francisco last week: How d...

Twitter considering a tweet ‘clarifying’ function

Clarification hasn’t always been Twitter’s strong suit. Fittingly, there’s a bit of confusion around the long standing succession that the service could add an “edit” button in order to save users from silly typos and, well, much much worse. At a Goldman Sachs event this week, Jack Dorsey clarified that, rather than adding a controversial edit function, Twitter might just let people “clarify” earlier statements. The feature, it seems, is less aimed at the typo part of the equation than the w...

Just because you founded a high-flying tech company doesn't mean you can't be asked to leave. Steve Jobs himself was once ousted by Apple (or left voluntarily, depending on who you believe), and spent years running his own company before coming back into the fold as CEO.  More recently, Uber founder Travis Kalanick was ousted as CEO, following a year of scandals for the company.   Here are 8 tech executives who were once ousted from the companies they helped to build.  Just because you founde...

After Calls For an Edit Button, Twitter Says it is Considering a 'Clarification' Feature

Despite years-long calls from power users for an "edit" button, Twitter is considering how it could enable 'clarifications' of tweets, CEO Jack Dorsey said Thursday at Goldman Sachs' tech conference in San Francisco. From a report: "One of the concepts we're thinking about is clarifications," Dorsey said, saying that it could function similarly to a quote tweet. "Kind of like retweet with comment.. to add some context and some color on what they might have tweeted, or what they might have meant....

What we learned from Kara Swisher’s brutal interview with Jack Dorsey

Kara Swisher’s long-anticipated interview with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey felt momentous, as though it was the Frost/Nixon interview of the tech world.

In another corner stood the reclusive and controversial CEO of the most important social media property on the planet. At the insistence of Dorsey, the pair conducted the interview over Twitter. This, in retrospect, was a fa...

Blockchain has a new unexpected hero: Twitter’s Jack Dorsey.
