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.

2020 Elections: In Assembly District 36, Lackey trying to stave off Fox

Incumbent Tom Lackey, a moderate Republican from Palmdale, took the lead in his effort to stave off Democrat Steve Fox in a tight race among familiar foes who aim to represent the 36th Assembly District, on Tuesday, Nov. 3. District 36 is one of only 17 seats in the Assembly controlled by a Republican.

With a Warby Parker playbook, SISU raises funding from Greycroft to face-off against cosmetic clinics

With so many people getting ‘botox’ and ‘filler’ treatments to their faces these days (or are they, during the pandemic?), it’s probably no wonder that Venture Capital has decided to look at the space. In the same way that the small and scattered market of spectacle/optometrist shops were disrupted by startups like Warby Parker, so the extremely variable experience of back-street cosmetic clinics are ripe for targeting. Step in SISU, a chain of cosmetic clinics created by a serial tech entrep...

WHERE ARE THEY NOW? The players from the Dwight Howard trade that rocked the NBA and sent the Lakers and Magic into tailspins

The deal included 12 players and five picks — here's where everyone involved is today. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories Dwight Howard's Lakers tenure didn't go as planned. Kevo...

It’s almost fitting that the Buffalo Sabres 2019-20 season ended this way. With the pandemic blurring days together, with little difference between a Tuesday and a Friday, it feels like Groundhog’s Day.

With push from ‘Tiger King,’ locals back federal law to limit ownership of big cats

Even though it featured an alleged murder-for-hire plot, a gay throuple, and a worker’s arm being ripped off by a tiger, there’s one detail in the Netflix docu-series “Tiger King” that many viewers found particularly shocking. At the beginning of the seven-episode series, this statistic flashes on screen: There are an estimated 7,000 captive tigers in the United States, nearly double the population of tigers in the wild worldwide.
