New research has found that warmer autumns are driving the extinction of monarch butterflies. Globally, 40 percent of insect populations are in decline; one-third are in danger of extinction.Insects pollinate three-fourths of the world's crop supply, resulting in 1.4 billion jobs. Insects might often seem like a nuisance, yet life on this planet would be impossible without them. Sure, mosquitoes kill more humans every year than any other animal, but there's a trade-off when it comes to such in...

UCLA gymnastics has season-best score in loss at Utah

There’s an emphasis on visualization in UCLA gymnastics. Going into Friday night’s meet in Salt Lake City, gymnasts could see pointed toes, fluid choreography, all before performing. But above all, they were trying to self-manifest success. Although the Bruins fell to third-ranked Utah, 197.225-197.100, they scored 49-plus points on all four events and were able to manifest their highest team score of the season on national television. “Personally I (visualized) a lot.

Feralizing: An Age Coming in Five Acts, Alex Wells Shapiro

Shapiro’s urban environments and relationships focus on everyday details – “gum wad loose foil and rock” – that provide the familiar comforts of belonging. Often experimental yet always accessible, his poems plainly present the tangible, specific moments of city life without erasing their emotional and symbolic depth. Meaning, for Shapiro, is found on the streets, underfoot, as the body moves through crowded spaces. The post Feralizing: An Age Coming in Five Acts, Alex Wells Shapiro appeared fir...

Questioning Th Ratings

from Andrew Bucholtz of Awful Announcing, There are several key things to consider with ratings stories, including who’s providing the ratings numbers, what those numbers are being compared to, and what other context is out there. The Athletic’s “NHL TV ratings up as push to engage fans outside rinks breaks from tradition,” a story by Sean Shapiro that was published Friday, is missing a fair bit of important context. The piece is about the NHL “television boom,” but it cites a grand total...

Can LA talk radio find the next Rush Limbaugh to bring back listeners?

For years, political talk radio has been on the decline, both in ratings and influence. This is due to various reasons including an aging listenership in an era when advertisers want younger. This places formerly popular hosts on lower-quality signals such as when Rush Limbaugh was moved from Clear Channel blowtorch KFI (640 AM) to candle-powered KEIB (1150 AM) more than a few years back. With rare exception, conservative talk radio was never the overall ratings juggernaut that people thought it...
