Tuesday was the hottest day of 2021 — and Wednesday won’t be much different

It was the hottest day of the year in Southern California on Tuesday, June 15, and Wednesday could be about the same — not that your internal thermometer would likely recognize any small change. “If it’s 2 degrees warmer or 2 degrees cooler, it won’t make much of a difference to anyone but us, because we like numbers,” said Phil Gonsalves, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in San Diego. “The more extreme the temperature is, the more difficult it is for our sensory mechanism to te...

Alexander: Irvine’s Rose Zhang takes aim at U.S. Women’s Open

When last we talked to Irvine’s Rose Zhang, in April of 2020, she was limited to hitting golf balls in her garage, idled because of the COVID-19 lockdown.  “I have a little range area in my garage,” she said then. “I just hit balls and then putt. There’s not much you can do.” Later in the year her left wrist started bothering her, with what was first believed to be tendinitis but turned out to be a wrist impingement, and she said earlier this year overdoing it in the garage probably had a lot to...

Irish food for every day of the year, not just St. Patrick’s Day

The second time I went to Dublin, I added Irish stew, bangers & mash, soda bread, Dingle Pie (mutton in a pastry) and colcannon (mashed potatoes and cabbage) to my diet, along with ...
