This Week In Trailers: Pavarotti, Bliss, Woodstock: Three Days that Defined a Generation, Grass Is Greener, Harvest Season

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we spark it up for 4/20, get into a slight tussle, luxuriate in the mud for three days, examine one of music’s greatest artists, and...

Success and failure of protected species in California

The 2019 theme for Earth Day is ‘protect our species’ so today we look at some that are threatened or near extinction in California. The California flag features a grizzly bear that roamed the state, stood 8 feet and weighed more than a ton. The bear was considered a threat to livestock and people and has been extinct since the 1920s. The California grizzly was designated the official state animal in 1953, 30 years after it was killed off. Gray wolves were the other large mammal to join the path...

A summary of the history of the Long Beach Grand Prix races from 1975 to 2018. 1975 British driver Brian Redman, forced to adopt a conservative race strategy due to handling and differential problems, capitalizing on the misfortune that befell early race leaders Tony Brise, Al Unser and Mario Andretti to claim a stunning victory Sunday in the Long Beach Grand Prix. “I don’t like to win in this fashion,” said the proper Yorkshire gent. “I’ll be the first to admit that I backed into it.

Bail bond preservation measure looks like a winner

It’s never easy to convince Californians they should reverse decisions made by the legislators they elect, as Republicans led by the failed gubernatorial candidate John Cox discovered last fall. Cox made his pet proposition, a referendum to repeal a 12-cent gasoline tax increase passed in 2017, the centerpiece of his run for governor, but saw it lose by a 57-43 percent margin, not even close. But California referenda – the term for propositions aiming to overturn laws passed by the Legislature –...

We talked to the Apple employee who says CBP detained him and tried to search his phone and laptop: 'The most invasive search the government could possibly do'

Andreas Gal said that in November, officers with US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) detained him at San Francisco International Airport as he was returning home from a business trip in Europe. Gal, Mozilla's former chief technology officer and a current Apple employee, told Business Insider that he believes he was singled out because of his vocal opposition to the Trump administration's privacy and immigration policies. He said CBP agents demanded to go through his company-issued phone and...

Reintroduced California condors could reach Oregon

MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — A plan to reintroduce the California condor to the Redwood National Forest could mean the giant raptors will eventually repopulate Oregon’s Rogue Valley as well.

Joe Thornton’s Legendary Season

Less than an hour’s drive from San Jose live the slender, giant coastal redwood trees. A few hours inland, the Sequioa grow almost as tall, but it is their giant diameter which stands out. When one walks among these trees, it is intuitively understood, you are walking amongst something timeless –you are among legends. San Jose Sharks center Joe Thornton spent the 2018-19 season skating amongst legends. On almost a nightly basis, it seemed he reached some sort of meaningful milestone. At one p...

GrubMarket raises $25M more for its farm-to-table food delivery service

Farmers markets have become a staple presence in many US cities, where there is a steady supply of smaller, often organic farmers and other food producers wanting a more direct channel to sell their goods, and a steady demand from foody types who like having the option of bypassing bigger grocery stores to amble around a group of stalls with a wider choice of items to cook and eat. Now, one of the startups that has turned that model into a profitable on-demand delivery business has raised some f...

Chance of rain comes to Southern California

LOS ANGELES — A weak storm out of the Gulf of Alaska may produce some rain in the Southland later Thursday and possibly Friday, a National Weather Service meteorologist said. “It won’t amount to much” said meteorologist Dave Bruno, predicting less than a 10th of an inch of rain in Los Angeles County. The system originated in the Gulf of Alaska, and the lion’s share of its energy will remain in Northern California, he said, adding that no flooding is expected — not even in areas denuded by wildfi...

It is national sourdough day, fools

I was just informed that it is National Sourdough Day, no fooling. I baked more sourdough this weekend. I wanted to see if my starter would come back to the reliable cycle I am used to if I treated it nice for a few days. This no-knead loaf rose very nicely for about 20 hrs. I folded the dough and put it into a linen lined banneton. I wanted to see if this would make my bread any different. For years I have been using floured banneton and getting really rustic, crusty, artisnal looking lo...

“How Does JibberJobber Help Me Find A Job?”

Leo asked this question: How does JibberJobber help me find a job? I’ve been thinking about this since he asked… my first thought goes to what I’ve heard over the years, which is slightly reworded but I have heard it a lot: How does JibberJobber FIND A JOB FOR ME? It doesn’t. Nothing does. YOU have to find the job. When I was a kid, growing up in Northern California, I loved hunting for snakes and lizards. I had to turn over every rock that I could, ever log that would move. It was exhilaratin...
