California’s job growth to dip from more robust years, report says

California’s economy is expected to add more than 300,000 jobs this year and in 2020, but that will fall well below some of the more robust growth years the state experienced over the last half-decade. California will add 322,700 jobs this year and 318,500 next year, the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp.’s 2019 Regional Forecast and Economic Outlook predicts. By contrast, the state added 424,200 jobs in 2014, 474,000 in 2015 and 427,100 the following year. On the plus side, Californi...

Recession not likely before 2021, housing economists say

Good news America: The next recession may not appear in 2020, as a majority of economists long had forecast. Instead, the next economic downturn could be delayed until 2021 or later, making the current session of economic growth — now almost a decade old — the longest in U.S. history by June. That’s the view of three housing economists speaking Tuesday at the annual convention of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) in Las Vegas. If true, such economic news could be a boost to Republ...

What if my car just looks better with only one license plate?

Q. Hello Mr. Honk: I read Mr. Ball’s question and your reply last week regarding the state requirement for a front-mounted license plate, in addition to the one in the back. We recently purchased a new car and there is nowhere to mount a front plate other than to drill holes and/or cover the cooling fans. If we are pulled over for the lack of a front plate, is this a moving violation against the driver’s license or a fix-it ticket? When driving all over the Southland, I do notice the many cars w...

Activision Blizzard to cut 800 jobs after forecast shows revenue shortfall

Activision Blizzard plans to eliminate 8 percent of workers as part of a companywide reduction, an effort to get the maker of Call of Duty back on track after a disappointing forecast. The layoffs would affect hundreds of workers at the company, which expects to record a roughly $150 million expense in connection with the belt-tightening. Bloomberg reported last week the video-game maker was preparing to make the cuts. The company maintains a big presence in Southern California, with a corporate...

Big West basketball: The key to Cal State Fullerton’s mid-season turnaround

Don’t look now, but the Cal State Fullerton men’s basketball team has slowly been making progress up the Big West standings. The Titans are winners of six of their last seven, a stretch that comes after Fullerton lost its first two games in conference play. The run has lifted the Titans into a tie for second place with UC Santa Barbara at 6-3, two games behind first-place UC Irvine. With the Big West tournament now just a month away, it’s a good time for the Titans to find their pace as a team. ...

UC Irvine’s Jonathan Galloway helping Anteaters take control of the Big West

IRVINE — As UC Irvine has created more and more separation between itself and the rest of the Big West Conference these past six weeks, one thing has become more and more apparent: No team can match up with the Anteaters in the post. Again, it was on display on Saturday night as UC Irvine beat Hawaii 67-56. The Anteaters were led in scoring by guard Max Hazzard with 13 points and a trio of 3-pointers, but they did most of their damage in the paint. Irvine scored 34 points in the navy blue rectan...

Whicker: Max Hazzard still hears his grandfather as he and UC Irvine keep winning

IRVINE — The NCAA basketball championship trophy made a rare visit to the West Coast this week. Quick, take a photo before it heads back East. So UC Irvine’s players gathered around. “But I’d seen it before,” Max Hazzard said. “It’s been at the house.” Yes, Walt Hazzard is Max’s grandfather. Next to John Wooden, he was the godfather for a real dynasty. Walt Hazzard activated John Wooden’s vicious zone-press in 1964 and was was named Player of the Year by the U.S. Basketball Writers.

In their first town halls, new Southern California Democrats pressed about progressive campaign pledges

Democrats dominated Southern California’s House races in November by telling voters they would pursue universal health care, immigration reform, stricter gun laws and green energy programs. They also promised something else: accessibility. Now, just weeks into the freshmen Democrats’ first terms, voters who helped elect them — and a few who voted against them — already are asking, “What are you doing to keep those promises?” That was the context at a handful of well-attended town halls hosted ar...
