Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach: CEO Jim Michaelian wants fans ‘re-excited’

A boxer taking a couple of years away from the sport is never good, in part because fans quickly forget and chatter about said boxer greatly diminishes. This year’s Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach is being run this September weekend instead of in April, its usual time of the year, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the pandemic is why the 2020 race was canceled, that means it will have been nearly 2 1/2 years since the race was last run – in April 2019 – when the cars hit the grid Sunday on ...

Southern California hasn't had a big earthquake since 1857. Here's what would happen if a mega earthquake hit California.

Pregnant during pandemic: COVID-19 fears fuel increased interest in home births

When Tameka Issartel went into labor shortly after midnight on Feb. 3, she found herself drifting into a trance-like state.

Rising seas will change the coast and the groundwater beneath your feet

While concerns over sea-level rise have typically focused on the ocean washing over previously dry land, higher seas also raise the coastal groundwater table — and that could expose far more Californians and their property to climate-change effects than overland flooding. Miami is already experiencing such groundwater flooding. The Atlantic Ocean has risen enough that it routinely pushes subterranean water levels so they breach the land’s surface in some neighborhoods there on a daily basis, U.S...
