Whicker: Davis, Lakers welcome the Denver Nuggets to a higher altitude

Let’s be clear. No team in the NBA is immune from the aftereffects of Anthony Davis. It’s just that the Denver Nuggets are in the high-risk pool. The Lakers rolled to a 126-114 Game 1 victory in the Western Conference Finals on Friday. This prompted TNT’s Charles Barkley to get out the kitchen broom and start sweeping the studio floor. Sir Charles has been a little off on his assessments — i.e., he’s only even-money to tell you this is September — and you would expect the vibe of this series to ...

SCOTT GALLOWAY: Palantir can wrap itself in the flag all it wants. The company is still a s----y business that has never made money in 17 years.

Forecasters run out of storm names in busy hurricane season

By ANGIE WANG and JAY REEVES | Associated Press LOXLEY, Ala. — Forecasters ran out of traditional names for storms Friday, forcing them to begin using the Greek alphabet for only the second time since the 1950s, with more than two months left in the record-shattering hurricane season. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of people were still without power along the Alabama coast and the Florida panhandle in the aftermath of Hurricane Sally.

Climate change may prompt a new mass American migration, a move that could leave behind vulnerable groups and widen the wealth gap across the country

A firefighter battles the Creek Fire as it threatens homes in the Cascadel Woods neighborhood of Madera County, Calif., on Monday, Sept. 7, 2020. Noah Berger/AP As fires, heat, and storms ravage the nation, Americans and policymakers are forced to confront the realities of climate change in their own backyards.  Experts predict the surge in natural disasters will prompt a global migration to wealthier cities, a move that will likely widen the wealth gap and lead to rapid urbanization.  His...

How LeBron James has helped Anthony Davis shoulder the Lakers’ pressure to win

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — In the middle of the Lakers’ biggest win so far this postseason, Anthony Davis was struggling. It was hard to tell from the 6-foot-10 forward’s body language that his team was blowing out the Houston Rockets in Game 5. He hung his head. He slumped his shoulders. As he shuffled to the bench during a timeout in the third quarter, he brushed past several open palms of his teammates, who looked at him with concern. Davis was in the midst of what would be a 4-for-9 night from...

‘Antebellum’ Star Lily Cowles on Learning to Be an Ally [Interview]

It’s Lily Cowles‘ Sarah who gets to say the opening text of Antebellum: “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” It’s a quote by William Faulkner around which directors Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz frame their horror film, the idea that racism is as well and truly alive as it was in the Antebellum South. But Cowles’ character, despite being a “woke” friend and ally to her Black friends, Janelle Monae‘s Veronica and Gabourey Sidibe‘s Dawn, is the one character who doesn’t really experie...

End "qualified immunity" for police (and the TSA)

["Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." (Lauderdale County Courthouse, Meridian, MS)] In early March, shortly before returning home to San Francisco where I've been "sheltering in place", I took a week-long road trip along portions of the Civil Rights Trail from New Orleans through and Mississippi to Memphis. This was largely terra incognita for me. My family lived near Houston -- then as now the largest city (and with the largest African-American population) in the South -- fr...
