California State Parks close to vehicle traffic due to coronavirus

After witnessing a surge in visits the day before, all 280 California State Parks will now be closed to vehicle access, according to a statement. “On Saturday, many state parks once again experienced visitation surges that made it impossible for the public to implement appropriate social/ physical distancing practices,” a statement said from the California Department of Parks and Recreation. State parks have already closed all campgrounds, museums and visitor centers, cancelled all events and we...

How UCLA basketball looks for the 2020 season

In his first year with UCLA men’s basketball, coach Mick Cronin shattered expectations and brought a revival to the program. While the Bruins did not get the chance to perform under the bright lights and high pressures of the postseason, with the Pac-12 and NCAA Tournaments canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cronin has already made strides to continue his success into the 2020-2021 season. Scholarships opening up after 2019-20 With the departures of redshirt seniors Prince Ali and Alex Ole...

Love in the time of coronavirus: Long Beach couple weds in a changed world

There were no ivory table cloths. No dusty rose napkins. No gold table numbers. But Halley Taylor had a veil, a floral beaded headband and a white, floor-length gown with layers of lace and sequins. Taylor married her fiancé, Jacob Frank, in a tiny ceremony in a private backyard on the Palos Verdes Peninsula early Saturday evening, March 28, under wisps of clouds dotting the springtime sky, the Pacific Ocean lapping in the distance. Halley Taylor and Jacob Frank got married in a small ceremony...

How their San Fernando restaurant became a mini-market to help the community

The coronavirus outbreak complicating shopping for many of their customers, Chris and Magaly Colelli, owners of Magaly’s Tamales in San Fernando, listened to many complain that they were having a hard time finding rice and beans, staple items for the predominantly Latino populated city. “Beans and rice were the first things we started out with because we saw that there was a need for that,” said Magaly, who described how they’d sell key uncooked ingredients for the entrees they’d generally prepa...

MU và trận hòa bạc nhược trước AZ Alkmaar

AZ Alkmaar sử dụng sân cỏ nhân tạo Cars Jeans ở Den Haag, thay cho sân chính AFAS đang tu sửa để tiếp đón MU trong khuôn khổ lượt trận thứ 2 bảng L Europa League.  HLV Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sử dụng David De Gea bắt chính thay vì Sergio Romero và Marcus Rashford dự bị cho Mason Greenwood. Hậu vệ mới 19 tuổi Brendon Williams cũng được trao cơ hội đá trận ra mắt Europa League cùng “Quỷ đỏ”.

Debt and deficits still matter, right?

There are many reasons for America to spend its money wisely and not rack up debt. But the best reason is to be prepared for emergency situations like a pandemic. As such, it’s not the $2.2 trillion price tag on the coronavirus stimulus package that concerns me — it’s the trillions of dollars that preceded it. In fact, these are the times that the government should intervene, especially since it is the government that ordered the economy to close. For what it’s worth, I believe the COVID-19 cris...

We don’t need to densify to save the planet or solve our housing crisis

The coronavirus pandemic is now on track to be far less lethal than first predicted by the Imperial College London study that set off the alarming response we’re living in today. But it could turn out to be fatal to the plans of so-called urbanists in California. These are the advocates for “transit-oriented housing,” high-density apartments near public transportation, who have been telling Californians for years that single-family homes are a waste of resources and bad for the planet. That argu...

Coronavirus outbreak reveals big financial shortcomings

The rapidly expanding COVID-19 pandemic threatens the lives and livelihoods of Californians, but it also lays bare some multi-billion-dollar shortcomings in state government finances that have been ignored for decades, despite many warnings. The most obvious is the state budget’s unhealthy reliance on taxing the incomes of a relative handful of wealthy Californians. Income taxes generate about 70% of the state’s general fund revenues and about half of those taxes are paid by the 1% of California...

Zoom life is almost like real life. Almost.

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom! Three weeks ago I had never heard of Zoom, the video-conferencing service through which I now take meetings like nobody’s business. (Speaking of business, I see that the San Jose company is making out like a bandit in the coronavirus market crash — its stock was up 7 percent Friday afternoon as everything else cratered.) First it was a Saturday nonprofit board meeting with a dozen or so participants. As ever these days, you just learn by doing. Fire up the laptop and push the a...

Coronavirus economy: California real estate sales now deemed ‘essential’ industry

The real estate industry, struggling with coronavirus-linked limitations, got a boost with its sales business reclassified as an “essential” industry.

This list was used to determine what California industries were told to limit ope...

USOPC athlete ombudsman allegedly advised USA Badminton on player’s complaint

The U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee’s athlete advisory council is examining whether USOPC athlete ombudsman Kacie Wallace violated the Ted Stevens Olympic and Amateur Act when she allegedly gave advice to USA Badminton regarding an athlete complaint regarding qualification for the 2019 Pan American Games, according to documents obtained by the Orange County Register Dr. Mathew Fogarty, a three-time Pan Am Games medalist, on Thursday asked the athlete advisory council to fire Wallace for ad...

How the Lakers stay in shape under coronavirus quarantine

In the hunt for the silver linings of social distancing, there’s never been a better time for Danny Green to run outside. Under normal circumstances, the Lakers guard wouldn’t be able to run in his South Bay neighborhood without running into someone who wants to stop him for a picture or an autograph. But last week, when he and his girlfriend left home to go jogging by the beach, they were blissfully uninterrupted. “No one’s bothering you – everybody’s six feet away, not near anybody,” he said. ...

Whicker: Jim Wynn Cannon-ized pitchers throughout the National League

Jim Wynn was ahead of his time, even when he was out of place. A home-run hitter in Houston’s Astrodome, at least in its old configuration, was like a fisherman in the Mojave. Put a 5-foot-9 guy in the batter’s box, surround him with guys who hit soft singles when they hit at all, and Wynn has to be recognized as one of the unlikeliest power sources in baseball history. Wynn had 291 home runs, most of them executed from the heels. In 1967, Wynn had 37. Some modern analysts project that as a 50-h...
