Blockbusters are back: The summer movie season is packed with big theatrical releases and streamers

How things have changed. In 2018 and ’19, the April releases of “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame,” respectively, kicked off the summer movie seasons before the weather was even thinking of heating up in some places. We all know what happened in 2020: The novel coronavirus pandemic caused theaters to close and studios to push back myriad releases, many of them likely blockbusters. And while things are looking up, we’re not back to normal. For years, the first big movie of the summe...

How the Parkland survivors inspired ‘Us Kids,’ a documentary about their post-shooting activism

Samantha Fuentes says she trusted director Kim A. Snyder to tell the story of how she and her classmates survived a school shooting with empathy and understanding and a shared sense of purpose. Still, Fuentes was nervous as she took her seat in a theater at the Sundance Film Festival for the premiere of the documentary “Us Kids” last year. “It was a highly emotional experience, especially because I was not only in the room with my close friends and family, but also a room full of strangers,” say...

‘American Idol’ hopeful Chayce Beckham has Coldplay ‘Magic’ as Top 5 are chosen

Chayce Beckham, the heavy machinery operator from Apple Valley, sailed into the Top 5 of “American Idol” on Sunday when contestants celebrated both the music of Coldplay and their love for their mothers. Beckham, 24, seemed perfectly at ease with celebrity mentor and Coldplay singer Chris Martin during their coaching sessions before the live performances on Sunday. Martin even went as far as to suggest Beckham pull down a strand of his slicked-back hair to go for a kind of Johnny Depp vibe. Then...

6 ways to help your dog deal with being alone all day as the coronavirus pandemic wanes

Dr. Stefanie Schwartz has always had four-legged patients with separation issues. And while the Orange County-based veterinary behaviorist, who runs the site petbehavior.org, hasn’t seen an uptick just yet, she expects to see even more cases of dogs with separation issues as the coronavirus pandemic wanes, even in pets who have been with their owners for years and were already used to being home alone but wound up spending all day with their owners for the past year. “It could be that they’re st...

El Segundo locals tell the story of what it’s like being ‘Black in Mayberry’ in new film

These are the voices of El Segundo. The city’s residents are sharing their experiences with racism in “Black in Mayberry,” a new film inspired by Black Lives Matter protests in El Segundo. The film aims to tell the stories that may not always be discussed between people of different races. One young woman talks about how she always dresses in bright athletic gear when she’s jogging to make it clear that she is exercising and not running from something. Another talks about the pressure of being t...

LeBron James rejoins Lakers after enigmatic ramp-up

LOS ANGELES — On Friday morning, Lakers coach Frank Vogel went to the team’s El Segundo practice facility to see for himself how close his best player was to returning. The Lakers haven’t had a full-team practice in more than a week, so even though LeBron James had been “flying around the court” in individual workouts, he couldn’t be sure how the 36-year-old was going to look with the group around him. Even though the team has looked vulnerable without James, clawing to an 8-12 record, Vogel sai...

Ducks facing numerous challenges as they head toward the stretch run

ANAHEIM — The challenges facing the Ducks are almost too numerous to list now that the remainder of the season can be measured in days and weeks rather than months. One of the biggest is how they play their final games, how they respond to their lowly status during the season’s stretch run. “The challenge right now is we’ve got ‘X’ amount of games left,” Ducks coach Dallas Eakins said. “We’re not where we hoped to be in the standings. We wanted to at least be, at this point in the season, going,...

Airport-close warehouses command higher rents as online shopping booms

Warehouse space has gotten hard to find near Southern California’s two main international airports, driving up rent for logistics firms and retailers trying to keep up with a boom in online shopping. As a result, industrial landlords near Los Angeles and Ontario international airports are commanding some of the biggest “rent premiums” in the country, a recent analysis by commercial brokerage CBRE says. Buildings with at least 75,000 square feet within five miles of LAX commanded rents that were ...

He talked of playing with Elgin Baylor on a Seattle semi-pro basketball team. He talked of Western Washington, where he got shuffled when Washington showed a little apprehension about Black basketball players. There could have been stories about Jim Brown, except that Brown was often there, eating club sandwiches with Wright. Happy Hairston...

Barbie’s pandemic sales boom follows long revamp at Mattel

By Kelly Gilblom | Bloomberg One of the biggest consumer hits of the pandemic, alongside Netflix and the Nintendo Switch, is a 61-year-old doll once mocked as outdated and sexist. Long written off by many parents and kids — and criticized for promoting an unrealistic body image — Mattel’s Barbie generated its best sales growth in two decades in 2020. Years of planning and a bit of luck have turned the baby boomer of toys into a go-to item for millions of kids. The result: Barbie and Mattel have ...

As NBA formulates All-Star plans, are there reservations to go?

Frank Vogel might be one of the lucky ones: If he doesn’t want to go anywhere for the All-Star break next month, he doesn’t have to. By virtue of a rule preventing coaching staffs from being represented in back-to-back All-Star games, the Lakers coaches (who coached Team LeBron in 2020) won’t be back under the proposal to stage an All-Star Game in Atlanta on March 7. But the deal – which is still being worked out between the league, the National Basketball Players Association and the relevant TV...
