Will poll watchers be out in Southern California for Nov. 3 election?

The first rule of being an election observer is you do not interfere with the conduct of the election. Also no bothering poll workers, no taking pictures or looking at confidential voter information, no wearing campaign clothes or buttons, and no challenging someone’s right to cast a ballot. Plus there are a handful of other rules, as California Secretary of State Alex Padilla explained in a memo to county elections officials last month – but most registrars and groups that recruit and train vol...

Chargers mixing up the defense with little success

COSTA MESA — Jalen Ramsey once said nothing ever changed in Gus Bradley’s defensive scheme. It was the same plays week after week while the two were together in Jacksonville. Ramsey was likely just stating the obvious then, not throwing shade at the head coach the Jaguars fired in 2017. Bradley knows his scheme is predictable. But plenty has changed since Jacksonville, with Ramsey now playing for the Rams and Bradley in his fourth season as the Chargers’ defensive coordinator. The Jaguars will m...

Voting by mail? Most Californians have preferred it over in-person voting for years

In the dramatic midterm elections of 2018, when the fate of the House and Senate hung in the balance and a new governor was about to be enthroned, two of every three votes tallied in California were cast via mail-in ballots rather than by in-person voting —even in the absence of a deadly pandemic. By-mail voting has long played a dominant role in Golden State democracy, so the ballot-in-every-mailbox experiment currently underway is not so much revolution as evolution. But understanding the part...

Boston startups expand region’s venture capital footprint

This year has shaken up venture capital, turning a hot early start to 2020 into a glacial period permeated with fear during the early days of COVID-19. That ice quickly melted as venture capitalists discovered that demand for software and other services that startups provide was accelerating, pushing many young tech companies back into growth mode, and investors back into the check-writing arena. Boston has been an exemplar of the trend, with early pandemic caution dissolving into rapid-fire dea...

Small bites: Wear a mask and eat at the same time with this inventive face covering

I keep encountering commentaries on when, and how, to use face masks at restaurants. Fairly obvious is wearing a mask when you walk in, while you wait, and until you’re seated. But…then what? Let us hope the staff is masked — and wearing shields as well. Ditto those laboring in the kitchen. And behind the bar. (If they’re not, this might not be where you want to have a meal!). But then, what to do while you dine? I’ve come upon numerous suggestions that you should keep the mask on between bites....

Consumers forfeited $60 million in bottle, can deposits, watchdog group says
