Palantir, a secretive tech company started by members of the 'PayPal mafia' with close ties to the Trump administration, could be one of the biggest tech IPOs ever. Take a closer look at how it makes money

Palantir has confidentially filed a draft of its S-1 paperwork for its planned IPO listing, the company announced Monday.  Activists have long protested the $20 billion big-data company for the ICE's use of its software to gather, store, and search for data on undocumented immigrants, and reportedly played a role in workplace raids. Palantir has also been notoriously secretive due to its work with government, policing, and military organizations like the Department of Defense, the Army, the Ma...

Whicker: 44 notes on 22 NBA teams, before the bubble season begins

Remember the NBA? If not, save these 44 facts on 22 teams, as the playoffs bubble up in Orlando July 30: LAKERS (49-14): LeBron James is launching a career-high 6.4 three-pointers and playing a career-low 34.8 minutes per game, but also leads the NBA in assists.

Here’s What I Did This 4 of July and Here’s The Sales I Hit Up

Good Morning! How was your weekend? I hope you had a lovely one! It was nice that the 4th fell on the weekend but kind of crappy that we’re all still quarantining here (friends, family, and my BF who got back from CA last week)! But it’s ok! I made a list of things I wanted to do by myself over the weekend and I had fun even if it wasn’t with a big BBQ, friends, and family. I was a little uncomfortable with the sheer amount of people walking around upstate this weekend without masks. At on...

But this is no ordinary year. Overall crime is down 5....

There’s no vaccine for the sea level rising

We will get by the current pandemic. There will be a vaccine eventually. There will be other pandemics. Hopefully, we will be better organized next time.Waiting in the wings are the emerging impacts of climate change, the next big challenge. There will be no vaccine to stem sea level rise. We will first lose Miami (highest elevation of 24 feet), London (36 feet), Barcelona (39 feet) and New Orleans (43 feet).  Paris and New York City will disappear a bit later.There are estimates that the cost o...

Dwight Howard’s status remains uncertain as Lakers wrestle with NBA’s fluid plans to return

On Tuesday afternoon, Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka was back at work, in his office in El Segundo with a large clear window that overlooks the practice court. But the familiar surroundings belie the singular circumstances that Pelinka, the Lakers and the NBA find themselves in just a month out from a planned restart in Walt Disney World — and most of the questions he’s facing are completely new. Most pressingly, the Lakers are still waiting to confirm that Dwight Howard will joining them wh...

Written in Stone 2020

 I have been immensely interested in the many debates surrounding statues, flag designs, and the naming of buildings, universities, and even lakes in the past several months.  The Duke University Press published in September 2018 a second edition of my 1998 book Written in Stone:  Public Monuments in Changing Societies.  2018  seems like far more than two years ago, even if one takes into account the fact that I was adding to my 20,000 word "afterword" until literally the day the book went to p...

Bubbling Brown Sugar

It is true that historically the American musical theatre has been dominated by white artists and white stories. There have been a couple of periods of increased activity and evolution in the black musical, in the 1910s and 20s, and again in the early 1970s, but only recently have black artists and stories taken a more active, more visible role in moving our art form forward.New Line has produced Passing Strange but no other explicitly black musicals.

Louise Goffin talks famous parents and finding her own place in the music world

The daughter of legendary songwriters Carole King and Gerry Goffin, Louise Goffin spent her childhood and adolescence in Laurel Canyon, the epicenter of the L.A. music scene in the late ’60s and ’70s. Her live debut came when she was 17, opening up for Jackson Browne in 1977 at the Troubadour in West Hollywood. Her first album “Kid Blue” arrived on the major label Elektra/Asylum in 1979 before she’d even turned 20. Yet while those early memories used to remind Goffin more of struggle and difficu...

Let's Drink! Full Trailer for 'Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets' Dive Bar Film

Utopia has released the full-length official trailer for a documentary film called Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets, the latest feature from the Ross Brothers. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and stopped by the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year.

How to have barbecue, high-end charcuterie, seafood and more shipped to your door

If you’re in a quandary about whether to test the waters as restaurants slowly open dining rooms after coronavirus closures, or whether you want to continue hunkering down subsisting on drive-thru fast food, there is a third option: specialty food outlets from around the country offering delivery. Is it more expensive to go this route? Sure. Most normally deliver within one to three business days and many items arrive frozen, but others with sufficient cold packs ship overnight. I’ve sampled all...

Opinion analysis: With Roberts providing the fifth vote, court strikes down Louisiana abortion law (Updated)

Four years ago, by a vote of 5-3, the Supreme Court struck down a Texas law that (among other things) required doctors who perform abortions to have the right to admit patients at a nearby hospital. In that case, Justice Anthony Kennedy joined his four more liberal colleagues in holding that, although Texas has a genuine interest in protecting the health of pregnant women, there was no evidence that the law actually did anything to promote that interest – but it did make it more difficult for wo...

Take back cities for people and the automobiles they use: Randal O’Toole

The pandemic has reminded us that our society has to be resilient to face all sorts of unexpected events, and this is doubly true for transportation. The good news is that the United States already has the most resilient transportation system in the world. The bad news is that some people are trying to take it away from us. Transportation needs to deal with all kinds of unexpected events, including terrorist attacks such as 9/11, natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and southern Californi...
