Los Angeles Kings’ Anze Kopitar: Hall of Fame Worthy?

The Los Angeles Kings’ captain Anze Kopitar has a big mantel over his fireplace in his house. This is a safe assumption given all those awards he’s racked up in his impressive career. Will he need to make room for the most significant honour of them all – the Hockey Hall of Fame (HHoF)? Kopitar will go down as a Kings’ legend (Icon SMI) This should be a lock – but it’s not. You can find plenty of reasons why one-day, “Kopi” should be enshrined in the beautiful building in downtown T...

instant pot for proofing?

instant pot for proofing? Submitted by krause on April 7, 2020 - 1:53pm. Hi all I recently saw the Brod and Taylor bread proofer (https://brodandtaylor.com/folding-proofer-and-slow-cooker/)  and that it is also advertised as a yogurt maker. My instant pot also doubles as a yogurt maker. Could any i use the yogurt function in the instant pot to proof my bread? Any negative's to this? I am currently in San Diego and my kitchen is in the shade, with normal temp around 66F year around.

Have We Lost Our Trust in Words?

I’m currently reading a book by one of my favorite writers, Barbara Brown Taylor. The book is called When God is Silent, and it is made up of a series of lectures delivered at Yale Divinity School in 1997. Now, before you worry that this is a religious, end-of-the-world type blog, let me reassure you that it’s not. It’s simply a blog about words and our relationship with them. More than anything, Brown Taylor’s lectures center around what she views as a crisis facing speakers. And she asks an in...

Craft beer crowler shortage to-go

Crowlers have become the toilet paper of the brewing industry. Not that guys with beards are fighting over 32-ounce stainless steel cans at the local brewers’ supply shop. But a nationwide shortage of crowlers has created a level of desperation that’s driven some beer makers to extremes. “Our supplier said they have a spot up in Jacksonville where we can pick up 300 crowlers they’ve allocated for us,” says McKay Ferrell, operations partner at Gulf Stream Brewing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. “...

The tide has turned against WeWork after it misjudged appetite for an IPO — now its trouble is deepening. Here's everything that's going on inside the coworking giant.

WeWork pulled its IPO in 2019 after mulling a massive valuation cut to drum up investor interest, and cofounder Adam Neumann was ousted as CEO and chairman. WeWork has been slashing jobs and selling or shuttering businesses.  New CEO real-estate veteran Sandeep Mathrani started in February, replacing Artie Minson and Sebastian Gunningham, who served as co-CEOs since Neumann was ousted. In April, investor SoftBank said it's backing out of its plan to buy $3 billion worth of WeWork shares, inclu...

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn keeping options open at QB, left tackle

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn expressed some disappointment about his post-free-agency news conference not being on Zoom, the increasingly popular video conferencing program. “I’m just surprised we didn’t Zoom so we can see each other’s faces,” Lynn jokingly said Wednesday to start the phone call conference. “It’s been so long. … Maybe next time.” Lynn has become familiar with Zoom, just like the much of the NFL has the past few weeks because of the restrictions that were implemented to avoid coro...

Coach Lynn: Chargers QB Taylor 'in driver's seat'

Anthony Lynn has expressed plenty of confidence in Tyrod Taylor if he ends up becoming the quarterback for the Los Angeles Chargers, but there are a lot of questions that still need to be answered between now and the start of the season. The Chargers coach said during a conference call Wednesday that Taylor has the inside track but the team is still assessing all options. “Right now he’s in the driver’s seat but nothing is finalized,” Lynn said.

Salesforce is awarding over $5 million in cash bonuses to its top five executives.  CEO Marc Benioff alone will receive nearly half of that: He'll be paid $2.3 million in bonuses on April 15.  While the bonuses are an annual occurrence, this year's awards come amid an economic downturn that has led to widespread of layoffs across the country and record unemployment.  Benioff has pledged not to make any "significant" layoffs at Salesforce for the next 90 days, after urging all CEOs to take 90-d...

Seringa.

Until recently, I did not know there was a word seringa; now I find there are two of them, both, confusingly, referring to plants. OED: seringa, n.1 Etymology: < French seringa (1600)< post-classical Latin syringa syringa n. Any of various white- or cream-flowered shrubs of the genus Philadelphus (family Hydrangeaceae); esp.

Tyrod Taylor: We will turn “a lot of heads” if I’m the guy calling the shots

Tyrod Taylor was supplanted in Buffalo by Josh Allen, and Baker Mayfield took Taylor's job in Cleveland. The Chargers pursued Tom Brady before he signed with the Buccaneers. Taylor knows the drill. But he's hoping the Chargers give him a chance as the team's starting quarterback. “We have a lot of talent on our team,” [more]

Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor has another chance to start, and to prove doubters wrong

Chargers quarterback Tyrod Taylor often posts pictures on social media of his offseason workouts, but a recent picture of him training with a notable free-agent quarterback drew plenty of speculation. Taylor was pictured next to Cam Newton, the former MVP who was released by the Carolina Panthers last week. Many assumed that meant the Chargers were going to sign Newton, but as of now that’s not the case. It was just a picture of two friends who play the same position having a throwing session in...

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.

Coronavirus fallout: Toilet paper alternatives clogging toilets, sewers

Jeff Taylor said he has learned a few things since widespread panic ensued amid the coronavirus outbreak, perhaps most importantly that there is no substitute for toilet paper.

California State Parks beefed up its list of parking lot closures on Thursday, March 26, adding to restrictions to the public to try and stop the spread of coronvirus.

Patty Jenkins is “Super Grateful” She Didn’t End Up Directing ‘Thor: The Dark World’

2013’s Thor: The Dark World is widely regarded as one of the worst movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s currently the lowest-rated MCU film on Rotten Tomatoes, even coming up short of 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. (That’s genuinely impressive!) Thankfully, though, the movie’s reputation is only as the MCU’s punching bag and not as a career-ruiner for its one-time director Patty Jenkins, who went on to great success as the filmmaker behind DC’s Wonder Woman movies. In a new interview, Jen...
