‘Burning Cane’ Review: A Hypnotic Southern Fable That Burns Itself Into Your Memory [Tribeca]

Burning Cane is a movie that flows over you: It’s less a structured narrative than a series of arcane images, each more beguiling and haunting than the last. The film, which deservedly won the Founders Award for best narrative feature at the Tribeca Film Festival, is an incredible debut for a 19-year-old filmmaker just out of high school — Burning Cane feels like the product of decades lived, of tragedies untold. But Phillip Youmans, who made this film at the age of 17 with Benh Zeitlin of Beas...

Gardening: What to know about the bacterial disease infecting trees in the LA area

If you are considering planting a tree, you might want to eliminate southern magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora) and jacaranda from your list of choices.  There is a bacterial disease that is infecting these trees, and liquidambars and sycamores, too, especially in the San Fernando Valley, but throughout the greater Los Angeles area as well. I would also be reluctant to plant an olive tree. Over the last five years in Puglia which, geographically speaking, is the heel of Italy’s boot, eleven million...

Pierce to LeBron and Lakers: You'll need more than Zion

Paul Pierce said LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers need more than top NBA prospect Zion Williamson if they want to return to the playoffs. The Lakers are already out of the postseason equation and they could – albeit with slim chances – win the NBA Draft lottery. If Lakers somehow beat the odds and land the number one pick, Duke sensation Williamson would be the obvious choice.

Spring Puff Pastry Tart by Erica

If you’re going by the calendar, spring officially arrived on March 20th. But most years here in northern Minnesota, that’s kind of a laugh. As a general rule, there’s still plenty of snow and chilly weather without much hope of green growing things. Some years we’re lucky and get an early thaw. For the most part though, we have to watch in envy as our southern friends post pictures of their gorgeous spring weather.     But that doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy spring-inspired cooking!

For a few seconds we can see nothing but bubbles. When they clear, we spot a huge whale shark swimming straight towards us – flat-headed with a yard-wide mouth. We paddle back to avoid him, but the enormous creature takes no notice. He glides past us – all 18 sleek feet of him. We turn and follow. The next few minut...
