Human remains could be composted if state bill wins approval

Your kids will be able to fertilize their garden with your remains if a new state bill is successful and makes California the second state in the U.S. to allow composting of human corpses. Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia, D-Bell Gardens, introduced a measure Tuesday that would follow the state of Washington’s law passed last year, allowing human remains to be placed in individual vessels where they are transformed into soil with the help of wood chips and straw. The resulting compost can then be r...

Census ball now in California’s court

Because the U.S. Supreme Court essentially laughed President Trump’s arguments for a citizenship question out of its courtroom last summer, the start of America’s once-a-decade official head count at the beginning of next month will be far from an April Fool’s joke. Once the Census Bureau begins mailing out questionnaires, sending operatives to knock on doors and puts its forms on the Internet, much of California’s fate will be in the hands of its people, residents of every size, shape, color, b...

Amazon is Opening a Supermarket With No Cashiers. Is Whole Foods Next?

Expedia is axing around 12% of its workforce. An Expedia spokesperson told Business Insider the company wanted to "simplify how we do business," which entailed "eliminating approximately 12 percent of our direct workforce" – likely equating to around 3,000 jobs.

Seattle Times Likes Klobuchar in Primary; She’s Got a Gun Control Plan, Too

Sen. Amy Klobuchar gets an editorial nod in Seattle, but gun owners shake their heads.

Amy Klobuchar in advance of Washington State’s March 10 primary, and like every other candidate in the race, she’s got a gun control scheme that appears based on a misunderstanding of what the Second Amendment is all about.

If Bernie’s the Nominee, There’s a New Red Scare Coming

Bernie Sanders looks increasingly likely to be the first self-declared socialist to head a major party in the history of the United States, especially after romping through Nevada on Saturday.

Inequalities are shocking, student debt levels are staggering, and living standards have been stagnant or declining for all but the 1 percent since the 1970s. Sanders’ brand of democratic socialism, which really differs little from New Deal liberalism, seeks...

We don’t just need more disabled stories on TV. We need better disabled stories on TV.

The first time I saw myself represented on TV was in 2012. I was a junior in college, and having just discovered Breaking Bad on Netflix (back before Orange is the New Black was even a thing, good god I’m old!), I was amazed to see someone with Cerebral Palsy on my screen. Of course at the time, I don’t think I understood the sheer magnitude of what this meant. For me, it was cool to see someone like that, simply because I had never seen it before.  Fortunately, we’ve come a long way...
