The celebrity factor in recall elections

Many Californians laughed out loud back in 1998, when Minnesota voters by a wide margin elected longtime professional wrestler and sometime talk show host Jesse Ventura their governor. But almost exactly five years later, those same Californians by a wide margin made longtime movie muscleman Arnold Schwarzenegger their governator and then kept him and his cigars in office for seven years. Neither Ventura nor Schwarzenegger had an iota of administrative experience, but both had shown some interes...

7 Disneyland rides made into movies, and 7 more possible projects

While many Disneyland attractions are based on films, a few have made the journey in the opposite direction — starting as theme park rides that became major motion pictures.

The new “Jungle Cruise” debuting Friday, July 30 will bring the classic 1955 Disneyland ride t...

Smoking pizza ovens and pilfered dollar bills, or the early story of RapidSOS

The irony of 911 is that it’s a number that everyone knows (at least in the United States), and yet, no one really thinks about it. Few of us will dial 911 more than a handful of times in our lives, and even when we do, we will meet the police officers and paramedics who respond, never the 911 call taker who handled the dispatch. These systems and the people behind them garner meager attention, whether from Congress, state legislatures, the public or anyone else outside the emergency response co...
