IBM is preparing to close its $34 billion acquisition of Red Hat but Wall Street has 'real question marks' after its 'mediocre' quarter (IBM, RHT)

IBM missed Wall Street's revenue expectations when it announced earnings on Tuesday, but analysts are paying close attention to its upcoming acquisition of Red Hat, which will close later this year. IBM saw declines in its cloud and cognitive software unit, and analysts say this is a sign that IBM is struggling to compete in artificial intelligence, one of IBM's flagship offerings, against other cloud vendors. IBM has been betting Red Hat to improve its hybrid cloud, but analysts say Red Hat a...

Book Review: An American Marriage

“Everyone who reads novels has read An American Marriage,” she told me. I guess I’m behind, I thought. So I downloaded the book on my Kindle, and got hooked. When I finished the book a couple weeks later, I stared off into the distance for about a full minute. Which I guess in the sign that something really sunk in. It’s a wonderful story, compellingly told from different viewpoints. The primary theme is marriage and its discontents (and contents). Other themes include criminal justice and wrong...

7 Plus-Size Friendly Workwear Brands You Should Be Shopping

Working 9-to-5 (or in today's landscape, 8-to-7), comes with enough challenges. Finding work-appropriate clothes that fit — and fit well — shouldn't be one of them.

Luckily, the seven retailers ahead specialize in workwear collections meant to help curvy and plus-size women get th...

Suspected LA Church Arsonist Thought To Be Motivated By ‘Black Metal Music’

Louisiana Fire Marshall Butch Browning (pictured above) said Thursday at a press conference that the suspected arsonist, Holden Matthews, behind a series of recent church fires is believed to have been motivated by “black metal music,” which has a “history of church burnings.” “We are still vetting several motives, however we do have information investigators uncovered and that Matthews had offered, connecting him to black metal music,” Browning said. “It has an association in history with ch...

How to Earn Respect from Employees

By Roy Maclaughlin It is no big news that respect at a workplace is crucially important for successful business management. If the entire team of the company can be compared to an engine working to drive success, then respect is oil that keeps the engine running smoothly. In fact, when there is no oil or when it gets low, the parts of the engine will start rub against each other. From there it is only a matter of minutes until the engine will destroy itself (most likely in a very spectacular fas...

Brutal season means Kings have plenty of work ahead

Seventy-one points. That’s all the Kings could muster in this just-concluded season, and that figures to weigh heavily on the minds of all in the organization during the offseason. Other than the strike-shortened 2012-13 season, the points are the fewest the Kings have had since getting 71 in 2007-08. Moreover, they missed the playoffs for the third time in five seasons. For a team that won Stanley Cup championships in 2012 and 2014, to say that’s unacceptable to the franchise is putting it mild...

Owner of 23rd horse to die at Santa Anita still believes track is safe

The highs and lows of horse racing were on full display this past weekend when Brian Trump, racing manager for Rockingham Ranch, saw one of his horses win a major stakes race, only to be greeted by news the next day that another of his horses had died. Trump had just stepped off a plane Sunday at LAX after returning home from witnessing X Y Jet’s victory in the $2 million Dubai Golden Shaheen when he heard the horrifying news about Arms Runner, who became the 23rd fatality of Santa Anita’s winte...

Irene Kral: Steveireneo!, 1959

Irene Kral recorded quite a few good albums but four great ones. My favorites by the singer and sister of Roy Kral (of Jackie and Roy fame) include her very first tracks on Maynard Ferguson's Boy With Lots of Brass (1957), on which she sang Imagination, The Song Is You, I Hadn't Anyone But You and Moonlight in Vermont. She would marry Ferguson trumpeter Joe Burnett a year later. I also love the two albums she recorded with extraordinary pianist Alan Broadbent—Where Is Love? (1974) and Gentle Ra...

Kings’ Kyle Clifford feels the power for first time in his career

Kyle Clifford has never spent much time on the power-play unit during his nine seasons with the Kings. Still, it was somewhat astonishing to hear that when Clifford scored a power-play goal during the Kings’ 4-3 shootout victory over the rival Ducks on Saturday night at Staples Center, it was his first career power-play point, in his 599th game. The most minutes Clifford has spent on the power-play unit in a given season is 16.4, and that came in his second season in 2011-12. Moreover, in nine s...

Kings’ Adrian Kempe: Swedish players love their long hair

LOS ANGELES – Kings forward Adrian Kempe didn’t make the cut, but best hair in the league was among the things recently voted on by the NHL Players’ Association. Three of the top five were from Kempe’s native Sweden. He smiled when discussing the subject. “There’s always Swedish guys that like to grow their hair,” said Kempe, who has medium-long blonde hair. “Especially on San Jose; they have a couple of guys. So, yeah, I don’t know if that’s a thing. “But I feel like more Europeans have longer ...

Kings’ Jeff Carter ‘proud’ to reach 700-point plateau

LOS ANGELES — Milestones are among the few things the Kings have been able to celebrate this season. To name a few, Anze Kopitar scored his 300th career goal on Jan. 5 against Edmonton; Ilya Kovalchuk recorded his 400th assist on Oct. 7 against Detroit; Dustin Brown played in his 1,100th NHL regular-season game on March 2 against Chicago and is now at 1,106 (before Monday) – just five away from tying Dave Taylor for No. 1 on the Kings’ all-time list.
