The Geek in Review Ep. 91 – Richard Hsu on Why Law Firms Will Need Lawyers to Return to the Office

We all know that the hybrid workplace is coming to our law firms. That is, where some lawyers are working every day from their office spaces, while others continue to work remotely. Many believe that this will be the permanent workplace of the future, and there is a Pollyannish attitude from some in the industry who think that the past seven months prove that we can do as much remotely, as we can from the office. Richard Hsu of the recruiting firm Lindsey, Major, and Africa is not one of them. ...

UCLA’s offensive line is inexperienced with a sense of optimism

The growth and maturity of UCLA’s offensive line will go in long way in determing what quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson can do along with the Bruins’ stable of backs, and the return of sophomore guard Sean Rhyan is a big factor. Rhyan, 6-foot-5 and 330 pounds by his own admission, was the Orange County Register’s Male Athlete of the Year when he graduated in 2018 from San Juan Hills High. He started all 12 games at left tackle for UCLA last year, becoming the first true freshman to start a s...

It’s about 2,000 acres where they raise a br...

The real story of how the violent, drug-fueled ‘Goodfellas’ became a gangster classic

Martin Scorsese’s “Goodfellas” is not just an iconic gangster movie; it’s an all-time classic and a pop-culture touchstone that’s packed with one memorable scene after another, whether it’s that minutes-long shot tracking Ray Liotta’s Henry Hill and Lorraine Bracco’s Karen Hill through the bowels of the Copacabana club or Joe Pesci’s terrifying Tommy DeVito asking ominously if Henry thinks he’s “funny like a clown.” It’s also a film that Glenn Kenny, a veteran film journalist, has re-watched reg...

Ex-Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein makes healthy, happy return with Cowboys

THOUSAND OAKS — When Greg Zuerlein sees old friends with the Rams this weekend and they ask how he’s doing, the answer might be: Better. Zuerlein makes his Dallas Cowboys debut Sunday night at SoFi Stadium against the Rams, for whom he won the 2018 NFC title with an overtime field goal at New Orleans. Zuerlein’s 2019 wasn’t as good. But it appears he had an excuse that wasn’t made public at the time, more trouble with a pulled groin, which he’d had the year before. This was revealed in August by...
