As the LAUSD strike dust settles, questions linger about truancy issues

The teachers strike that shook the Los Angeles Unified School District may be over, but some parents said they’re still confused about issues that emerged over student absences during a tumultuous nine days. As the walkout that began on Jan. 14 dragged on into the week, district attendance dwindled. Despite an army of substitute teachers and campuses being open for business, a vast school system with half a million students saw its attendance plummet to, at its lowest point, 84,160, as parents p...

Court Chooses Virginia Redistricting Map In Favor Of Democrats

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A panel of federal judges has chosen a redistricting map for Virginia’s House of Delegates that could shift some districts toward Democrats and help the party gain control in this year’s election. The judges ordered a new map in June after ruling that lawmakers had racially gerrymandered eleven House districts by packing black voters into them. On Tuesday, the judges chose new district lines from a series of proposals submitted by a special master. The judges gave all side...

Edmonton Oilers Last Few Days: ‘Of Course, They Did’…

Fans of the Edmonton Oilers are doing one of two things over the past 24-72 hours; either pulling their hair out in frustration or eagerly waiting for the next shoe to drop. For the first group of fans, it’s easy to become frustrated; the moves made by GM Peter Chiarelli seem to be further proof he’s no longer fit to manage this Oilers’ team. While speculation is that he alone is not deciding on the path or making these moves, the series of events that have transpired recently is baffling, to sa...

Do These CBD Beauty Products Actually Work?

It's 2019, and weed is buzzier now than it's been since 1968 — just not for the reason you'd think. The psychoactive plant technically known as cannabis has found itself in an unlikely position as the trendiest skin-care ingredient you don't need a state-mandated medical-marijuana card to buy. But should you really incorporate it into your routine?First things first: When people talk about weed beauty, we're talking about cannabidoil, or CBD for short, the non-psychoactive component of the cann...

Jones Coffee Roasters has a new venture brewing in South Pasadena’s former Buster’s location

Chuck Jones wasted no time when he heard that the old Buster’s Ice Cream and Coffee Stop in South Pasadena was going to become available in late November.

Will Jerry Jones finally make a run at Sean Payton?

Last week, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones made reference to opportunities that may arise next week when discussing his coaching staff. Some insist that Jones was referring not to coach Jason Garrett, but to offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. The fact that the Cowboys fired Linehan last week would tend to undermine that argument, however.

Anyone eager to speculate about Oklahoma capital cases with cert finally denied after so many relists?

I often like to make much of legal dogs that fail to bark (hat tip, Sherlock), and the Supreme Court's order list this morning had a couple of notably silent capital case canines in the form of Wood v. Oklahoma, No. 17-6891, and Jones v. Oklahoma, No. 17-6943 at the very top of the SCOTUS order list entries of cert denied.  Of course, silent and unexplained denials of even capital cert petitions without any comment are not usually noteworthy, but Kent Scheidegger over at Crime & Consequences has...

Q: Dear 100 Hour Board,So I noticed that a certain speaker in General Conference May have had a Botox injection. What are your guys’ thoughts on cosmetic surgery. Why is it so darn high here in Utah. I know plenty of members outside of Utah who look down on the saints here thinking they’re obviously more worldly due to all sisters with Tummy tucks, Boob Jobs, and now even worse stuff under the belt I don’t want to explicitly bring up here.

Seeing Double: ‘Dante’s Peak’ vs ‘Volcano,’ 1997’s Dueling Disaster Movies

(Welcome to Seeing Double, a series where two strangely similar films released around the same time are put head-to-head. This time, we take a timely look at two movies that turn volcanic activity into action/adventure romps for the big screen.) Volcanic eruptions don’t typically get the kind of attention in the US that hurricanes, tornadoes, and sinkholes do as they’re understandably infrequent here in the states. We had Mount St. Helens back in 1980 and then… nothing. The Kilauea volcano on H...

Ducks’ Troy Terry focused on his game after a minor detour

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Troy Terry led Team USA to the gold medal at the World Junior Championships in 2017, when he went 4-for-4 in shootouts, scoring the game-winners in victories over Russia and Canada en route to the gold medal. It was a mere warmup for an appearance in the 2018 Winter Olympics, though. Sandwiched between was an NCAA championship with Denver University, when he totaled four points (all assists) in Frozen Four wins over Notre Dame and Minnesota-Duluth.

On the Northridge earthquake’s 25th anniversary, a Valley hospital that was in the thick of it rolls out an early warning system

“Earthquake. Earthquake. Expect shaking. Drop, cover and hold on. Expect shaking now.
