Home Value Disparities Between Races Are Still Pronounced, but Shrinking

The value gap between communities of color and the typical U.S. home continues to shrink as home values reach pre-Recession levels. The home value gap for Black and Latinx homeowners is 16.2% and 10.2%, respectively, relative to the typical U.S. home. The Great Recession hit communities of color disproportionately hard and, after nearly a decade, the home value gap for Black- and Latinx-owned homes have recovered to pre-housing bubble levels — about three years behind U.S. homes as a whole.

With coronavirus claiming staggering numbers of lives in Los Angeles County, strapped private mortuaries unable to take on more bodies are straining local hospitals’ morgue capacity, forcing them to transport the deceased to the county’s coroner.

Team USA Announces 2021 World Juniors Team

The IIHF cancelled the women’s U18 tournament, as well as the the lower division U20 tournaments for the men. But because there is a dollar to be made, they are still plowing ahead with the World Juniors, against common sense, for a tournament that has already been marred by multiple players and coaches from multiple teams being ruled out of the tournament due to Covid-19 protocol. With that said, USA Hockey announced the 25 players that have made it through initial testing and will en...

Why intensive-care unit beds are focus of coronavirus shutdowns

At the heart of the state’s latest coronavirus stay-at-home orders, which Southern California triggered over the weekend, sits a single metric: Available intensive-care unit beds. That metric, established by the California Department of Public Health, is the most-recent wonky medical term to take a starring role in gauging the state’s fight against the coronavirus — and it is one that officials say is key to preventing the healthcare system from being overrun. Under the new state policy in Calif...
