A Week In San Diego As A Furloughed Government Employee

Welcome to Money Diaries , where we're tackling what might be the last taboo facing modern working women: money. We're asking millennials how they spend their hard-earned money during a seven-day period — and we're tracking every last dollar.Today: a lawyer who is on furlough due to the partial government shutdown and spends some of her money this week on Diet Coke. We previously published a Money Diary from this OP last November. Today, we asked her to talk about how the government shutdown is...

Chief Justice John Roberts right to push back against Trump, defend judiciary

In November, a federal judge in San Francisco struck down President Trump’s attempt to limit asylum-seekers to legal points of entry.  Trump complained about the action of “an Obama Judge.” Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts criticized Trump, saying America does not have “Obama judges or Trump judges . . .  What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them.” In December, a federal judge in Texas struck down th...

Alexander: In Rams’ case, the bandwagon effect isn’t bad at all

Usually we sneer, or at least look askance, at those “bandwagon” fans who become interested in a team just as it reaches the big stage. The normal inclination is to ask, “Well, where were you during the long, hard slog of the regular season?” But not here, and not now. If you are a new (or renewed) Rams fan, excited because of the first Super Bowl involving an L.A. team in 35 years (and the first involving an L.A. Rams team in 39 years) … well, welcome aboard. I’m guessing they won’t even ask, “...

LA County leads the state in Airbnb visitors, host income

Los Angeles County was California’s top Airbnb destination last year with 2.7 million guests who generated $613 million in host income. Newly released data from the company show there are now more than 27,000 L.A. County residents who share their homes through Airbnb, and the supplemental income they gain is substantial. Hosts typically earn about $11,400 a year, according to Airbnb — money that helps many homeowners make ends meet. Airbnb host Kathryn Levassiur asks guests to place a pin wh...

Rivet Raid

Rivet Raid in the bag. Not a race but a ride to raise money for the Santa Monica Mountains Restoration Trust. There would be one timed segment and what a doozy it was; Puerco Canyon from PCH, 2.95miles 1500' gain average grade 10%! But I am getting ahead of myself. The original ride was cut short due to all the rain this week so we were all riding the shorter 50 mile loop, which would have approx. 5000’ of gain.The day prior I had felt a sore throat coming on, it’s my Achilles Heel, and with one...

Poll: 69% of office workers in Los Angeles, Orange counties would leave town for a new job

When office workers were asked if they’d move for a job, 69 percent of those surveyed in Los Angeles and Orange counties said, “Yes!” Now before you think you see another hint of a local mass exodus, please note quitting jobs is the workplace’s hottest trend. And people may tell a pollster they want to relocate, but Census trends show Californians don’t move much these days. Also, note that career itchiness is a national trend. This survey by the Robert Half temp agency found in the 28 cities po...

The good, the bad and the ugly of Gov. Newsom’s budget proposal

Gov. Gavin Newsom released his 2019-20 budget earlier this month that, at first glance, has something for everyone to love and dislike. His budget can be classified into three parts — the good, the bad, and the ugly. The Good There is a lot to applaud in the budget that reflects Republican values. These include expanded efforts to pay off past debt and tackle some of the unfunded pension liabilities for retired state employees. The proposal also increases the Earned Income Tax Credit for working...

Sometimes, it is difficult to stay in your lane

Q. I am a retired firefighter of 34 years, and for 25 of those years I was on a paramedic unit and drove lights-and-siren as much or more than anyone at the time. I consider myself a cautious driver. On Christmas day we were driving down to San Diego on the I-5 Freeway. It was about 10:30 a.m. and raining. We were just passing where Highway 1 intersects the I-5, and the freeway lanes disappeared. The road in that area has the current striping; the old striping that Caltrans removed, but with the...

Ducks’ Troy Terry focused on his game after a minor detour

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Troy Terry led Team USA to the gold medal at the World Junior Championships in 2017, when he went 4-for-4 in shootouts, scoring the game-winners in victories over Russia and Canada en route to the gold medal. It was a mere warmup for an appearance in the 2018 Winter Olympics, though. Sandwiched between was an NCAA championship with Denver University, when he totaled four points (all assists) in Frozen Four wins over Notre Dame and Minnesota-Duluth. After his 2017-18 collegiate ...

A Derm's Guide To Getting Rid Of Dandruff For Good

In theory, walking around in a snow globe of your scalp's own design — in which flakes cascade like a never-ending snowfall — sounds like some kind of sci-fi winter wonderland. In practice, dandruff feels far less cool. The constant scalp scratching and shoulder brushing can be both maddening and embarrassing. Thankfully, we have science. Now more than ever, there are efficient and accessible ways to clear the scalp of flaky buildup, your clothes of fallen dead skin, and the psyche of confidenc...

The Best Work I Saw at the Medium Festival of Photography: Part 2

  I never set out to be an opinion columnist. It’s true. Hell, before 2008, if you’d told me I’d become a professional blogger, much less do the job for nearly 9 years, I’d have taken you for a crazy person. But everything realigned 10 years ago, in the eye-teeth of The Great Recession, and frankly, I don’t think the world has been the same since. It’s funny, reading the papers, following the discussions about whether the 10 year bull market has finally turned bear. Will the stock market’s tumbl...

Theater review: In ‘Linda Vista’ at the Taper, truth hurts but makes an outstanding play

Dick Wheeler has moved to Linda Vista, a section of San Diego whose name is translatable from the Spanish as “pretty view.” He needs one. He has a grim picture of where he’s been and where he’s headed. Wheeler, who prefers being called by his last name, is the character at the center of  “Linda Vista,” in production at Mark Taper Forum through Feb. 17. And the way playwright Tracy Letts (“August: Osage County”) has written him, he’s one of the most-intriguing, multifaceted and divisive character...

Mexican Riviera Cruise Ports – Highlights and My Favorite Experiences

Sailing along the golden coast of Baja California has long been one of the most popular cruise itineraries – just watch reruns of “The Love Boat” if you don’t believe me. So when Crystal Cruises approached me about sailing with them in this near perfect part of the world, I very quickly accepted. Sailing from Puerto Vallarta to Los Angeles, most of the trip was along the shores of Baja California, an area that was completely new to me. Over the course of a week I enjoyed the many ports of call ...

Who could benefit when biggest utility falls apart?

If there’s one classic line in the controversial movie “Vice,” it probably comes early in the film, when then-Vice President Richard Cheney is portrayed thinking about the World Trade Center attacks of 9-11 as “an opportunity,” rather than a tragedy. So it might be today in California, where tragedies partly of its own making afflict the state’s largest utility, whose chief executive has left the firm just when it says it will declare bankruptcy. Pacific Gas & Electric Co. faces as much as $29 b...
