Sale of sick puppies ‘has got to stop,’ says Manhattan Beach woman who won a court case

A Manhattan Beach woman who unknowingly purchased a gravely ill puppy in an online deal consummated in a Chino parking lot has accomplished what has been a struggle for others who say their hearts were broken: She won a judgment against the seller. Sara Strizzi acknowledges, however, that it could be difficult to collect the $5,126.92 awarded to her by San Bernardino Superior Court Commissioner Daniel C. Lough. The seller who Strizzi sued said in an email that she plans to appeal the decision. S...

Ambulances across Southern California feeling strain of coronavirus surge

Paramedics wait hours to drop off patients. Ambulances pass one hospital on their way to another. Some folks, fearing for their health, call 911 for help — only to hear their conditions are not serious enough for emergency transportation. The consequences of the surging coronavirus, catalyzed by holiday gatherings and pandemic fatigue, become more dire by the day. The pandemic has already sent thousands of Southern California families into mourning — and the death toll keeps climbing. Hospitals,...

Checking In on the Big Ten

Two-and-a-half weeks into the season, the Big Ten has emerged as one of the victors in this strange season. Whether it has been the league’s rigorous testing protocol or just dumb luck, the league has now managed to play 12 games without a cancellation; a remarkable achievement given the cancellation rate for the rest of college hockey is hovering above 50% at the moment and those Big Ten games have been played in states where case numbers have surpassed the CDC’s previous worst possib...

Craig Lewis has learned to ride horse racing’s highs

Craig Lewis has been training horses on the Southern California circuit for 39 years. He’s won many big races, including his 1,000th career victory Saturday at Santa Anita when Warren’s Showtime won the Grade III Autumn Miss Stakes. Lewis, a 73-year-old Long Beach native, has seen it all. He’s been as high as Mt. Everest and as low as Death Valley.

This Girl’s Birthday Party Theme Was ‘The Nun’ And I’m Losing My Mind

Courtesy of twitter/Andrea THIS IS THE BEST. THIS IS THE BEST. When you’re a kid there’s pretty much nothing as fun and exciting as your own birthday party. You get to have all of your friends in one place, you get to eat a crap load of sugar in every form it can possibly take, you get PRESENTS, and best of all, you get to decide what kind of party it’s going to be. It’s your day! It’s all about what you want to do. Some kids go with things like laser tag or movies, some kids want magici...

Comment on butternut squash salad with farro and pepitas by Lucia

I just made this for my family and I see that it is no where near enough for 4 of us. Are you sure these measurements are enough for 4 people for a meal? Or do you intend this as a side dish? I made another farro salad and usually do about double the amount of farro for 4 of us… and we’re light eaters… just curious if anyone else noticed that it was a small portion compared to what I was expecting.

Can learning pods scale, or are they widening edtech’s digital divide?

Lucia, a six-year old, hides from Zoom calls and has rejected every edtech tool from Seesaw to Khan Academy. She will spend all of first grade in quarantine. Her mother, Claire Díaz-Ortiz, says her daughter fits squarely into the “distance learning death zone.” The idea is that younger children are too young to do distance learning solo, even with tools meant to make it easier. Here’s one kindergartner’s remote fall class schedule: Just got this schedule for my kindergartner’s “distance le...

No-Bake Icebox Cake Recipe, For A Scorching Summer Day

This creamy, no-bake icebox cake (technically a carlota de limon), only requires five ingredients. It’s bright with fresh lime and as easy to make as it is to eat. A charlotte (or carlota) is the perfect kind of dessert for the summer. It’s close to a trifle in that it is composed of layers of luscious ingredients, and requires no baking. Emphasis on no baking. Cookies, breadcrumbs, and biscuits are the “cake” components that work between layers of custard, cream, or jam (or all of them). Becau...

Arthrex Remands: Treat or Trick?

Guest post by Professor Andrew C. Michaels (University of Houston Law Center) With Arthrex certiorari petitions hitting the Supreme Court over the past weeks, one issue that seems to be underappreciated is the judicial retroactivity question raised by Judge Dyk in his Bedgear concurrence, which was joined by Judge Newman.  It is fair to say that these two venerable judges don’t always agree, so on the rare occasion when they team up for a concurrence one might reasonably expect that they have a ...

Live music you can enjoy from home

To put it mildly, the spring live music scene is going to be a little lacking. And by lacking, we mean completely non-existent as everything from the corner bar’s karaoke night to South by Southwest have been completely canceled, leaving live music fans, musicians, and workers with a giant, gaping void. To fill that void, a number of musicians have begun live-streaming “concerts,” some from webcams in their living rooms. Others from empty venues, like a rock and roll version of the Champions...
