LeBron James approved for on-court work, but Lakers star to miss at least 3 more games

LOS ANGELES — The latest injury stint for LeBron James is marching toward unprecedented territory. The 34-year-old Lakers star was medically evaluated on Thursday for his strained left groin, which has already caused him to miss eight games.

The latest timeline makes James (27.3 ppg,...

Wild Women, Forty Pricks, and Western Noir

None Film critic Manny Farber, in typical inimitable style, summarized much of Samuel Fuller's film oeuvre through simultaneous praise and critique in the following observation: "What's good about his films is lovable; the daring, uninhibited use of semidocumentary techniques that save the movie from Fuller's mind, an unthinking morass at best" (Negative Space: Manny Farber on the Movies (New York: De Capo Press, 1998, 132). Put slightly more generously, Fuller's film style often trumps the plo...

Now with Pistons, Dwane Casey keeps perspective about playoff clashes with LeBron James

LOS ANGELES — To know the grace of Dwane Casey is to know that one of the last times he was in L.A., he was accepting the NBA Coach of the Year Award for the job he had just lost. The 61-year-old has perspective in his 10th season as an NBA head coach, and also a sense of humor. A wry smile crept across his face even as he talked about LeBron James, the player who eliminated Casey’s last three Toronto Raptors teams from the playoffs, twice via sweep. “We had a lot of success in Toronto, and one ...

Frank Kimbrough: Monk's Dreams: The Complete Compositions of Thelonious Sphere Monk

None There was something in the air in the past year, and part of it was the recent centennial of the birth of pianist and composer Thelonious Monk. What else can account for the 2018 release of two very different recordings of Monk's entire catalog of published compositions, about 70 strong. The less obvious set was recorded by guitarist Miles Okazaki using no overdubs, a remarkable achievement. Pianist Frank Kimbrough has been a Monk fan and interpreter for decades—of course, what modern jazz...

Art show of exquisite bronze trilobites and insects

D. Allan Drummond is a a professor of biochemistry, microbiology, and human genetics who has a penchant for trilobites, the marine arthropods that first appeared more than 500 million years ago and went extinct 245 million years ago for unknown reasons.

The Different Types of Power Naps to Skyrocket your Productivity

Human napping has been explored in various research studies, and the results seem to disprove the masses who argue that naps are a waste of time. A 2008 study performed by Mednick, Cai, Canady, and Drummond concluded that a nap in the middle of the day had more of a positive effect than caffeine on energy levels, as well as learning, motor skills, and verbal memory. Numerous other studies all back taking short naps during the day not as a way to slack off, but maintain alertness and productivity...

Travis Kalanick used to think of Larry Page and Google like 'a big brother' until they became his worst nightmare

Before they were enemies, Google and Uber were more than friends. Google was a big early investor in Uber. Kalanick described his early relationship with Google founder Larry Page as little brother/big brother. And then he discussed how it disintegrated as Google started to compete with Uber.  Uber's former CEO Travis Kalanick took the stand this week in San Francisco to defend Uber in a lawsuit brought by Waymo. Waymo, the self-driving car startup spun out of Google parent Alphabet, is suin...
