The migrant shelter at the Long Beach Convention Center has closed, Mayor Robert Garcia announced Friday, July 23, more than a week before the end of the site’s contract.

Long Beach explores options for Queen Mary’s future, including preservation or disposal

Protect big cats with bridges over roads

  Over the many years since California wildlife and transit officials began backing over- and underpasses that would allow animals to cross highways without being hit by vehicles, some residents have still been hesitant to back the proposals. They say it’s not government’s job to use taxpayer dollars to protect critters, or don’t believe that mountain lions and bears, for instance, belong anywhere near human-populated areas in the first place. So how about this argument: Large animals cause an e...

LOS ANGELES — Joseph Diaz Jr. vowed that he wasn’t the same fighter from February when he delivered a sluggish performance in a disappointing majority draw. Diaz admitted that he didn’t train enough in his previous bout, but the training showed Friday night in the championship rounds when he needed another gear to get past Javier Fortuna at Banc of California Stadium.

Gilberto Ramirez looks for career jump-start in Golden Boy debut

Gilberto Ramirez was on the verge of becoming Mexico’s next boxing star as a 24-year-old champion and his promoter Top Rank planned to get him to that status. But five years after winning his first world title as the co-main event to Manny Pacquiao, Ramirez finds himself starting over with a different promoter. Ramirez and Top Rank never reached their grand plans, and they parted ways after Ramirez’s contract expired last year. But Oscar De La Hoya and Golden Boy Promotions quickly snagged Ramir...

We tried out the first statewide vaccine passport

On June 20, about 20,000 fans gathered at Madison Square Garden in New York City for a Foo Fighters concert. The venue was at full capacity for the first time since the start of the pandemic, but it wasn’t a full return to normalcy: To get in, ticket holders needed to show proof that they’d been vaccinated—in the form of either a paper card or the state’s Excelsior Pass, a much-debated smartphone app that launched earlier this year.  The pass now has about 2 million downloads, which represent...

‘Jungle Cruise’ is Packed With Puns and Disney Parks Easter Eggs [Set Visit]

Now that Pirates of the Caribbean, The Country Bears, Tomorrowland, and The Haunted Mansion have been adapted into live-action feature films, here comes Jungle Cruise, which puts Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt on a riverbo...

"Surrogates for Mr. Adams have suggested without evidence that an apparent ranked-choice alliance between Ms. Garcia and another rival, Andrew Yang, could amount to an attempt to suppress the votes of Black and Latino New Yorkers."

"Mr. Adams himself claimed that the alliance was aimed at preventing a Black or Latino candidate from winning the race.... To advocates of ranked-choice voting, the round-by-round shuffling of outcomes is part of the process of electing a candidate with broad appeal. But if Ms. Garcia or Ms. Wiley were to prevail, the process — which was approved by voters in a 2019 ballot measure — would likely attract fresh scrutiny, with some of Mr. Adams’s backers and others already urging a new referendum o...
