EPA nominee: Climate change huge issue, not greatest crisis

By ELLEN KNICKMEYER WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s nominee to lead the Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday called climate change “a huge issue” but not the “greatest crisis,” drawing fire from Democrats at his confirmation hearing over the regulatory rollbacks he’s made in six months as the agency’s acting administrator. Republicans on the GOP-majority Senate Environment and Public Works Committee mostly had praise for Andrew Wheeler, who has served as the agency’s acting head si...

British PM May wins no-confidence vote, but is still beset by Brexit

By JILL LAWLESS and DANICA KIRKA LONDON — British Prime Minister Theresa May survived a no-confidence vote in Parliament on Wednesday to remain in office — but saw more of her power ebb away as she battled to keep Brexit on track after lawmakers demolished her European Union divorce deal. May won a narrow victory, 325 votes to 306 votes, on an opposition motion seeking to topple her government and trigger a general election. Now it’s back to Brexit, where May is caught between the rock of her ow...

California’s ranking falls to 19th best state to raise a family

California lost its Top 10 ranking as a place to raise a family in WalletHub‘s annual scorecard on child-rearing qualities. A year ago, California ranked 10th best. But this year the Golden State scored a No. 19 ranking — between Illinois and Virginia — in the 2019 edition of this family yardstick that the online financial website bases on “five key dimensions” derived from “49 relevant metrics.” The 2019 champ was Minnesota followed by Massachusetts — they were Nos. 1-2 a year ago, just in reve...

Louis Posen of Van Nuys’ Hopeless Records looks back on 25 years of hard work, good times and punk rock

Hopeless Records started as a mere hobby for Los Angeles native Louis Posen, but it has turned into 25 years of blood, sweat and a whole lot of fun and punk rock music. Back in the early ’90s, Posen was a film student at Cal State Northridge and had just shot a music video for punk rock band NOFX when he was introduced to Huntington Beach band Guttermouth. The group basically dared Posen to put out its latest 7-inch, even though his only knowledge of the business side of music came from a book h...

Does affordability matter: Why delinquent mortgages more common in ‘most affordable’ states

Why do the states with housing’s highest “affordability” measurements — much-discussed but perhaps dubious economic yardsticks — have more borrowers who can’t make their mortgage payments? Take California, which usually scores low on the traditional “affordability” ladder. Its homeowners are currently making their house payments with greater frequency. The state’s home listings are priced at 55 percent of normal “affordability,” according to one housing-cost index from the National Association o...

U.S. military says American troops killed in Syria blast claimed by IS

By BASSEM MROUE BEIRUT — The U.S. military says a number of service members were killed Wednesday in an explosion while conducting a routine patrol in Syria — the first instance of U.S. casualties since President Donald Trump announced his intention to withdraw troops from the country last month. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the rare morning attack in the U.S.-patrolled town of Manbij in northern Syria, saying one of its members carried out a suicide attack and detonated hi...

What’s new for the 2019 homeless Point In Time count? A look at what counties, cities in Southern California are doing differently

Next week, thousands of volunteers will start heading out in the early morning darkness and, over the next few hours or days, count the number of homeless people in Southern California.

Trump feels shutdown pressure from economists, Nancy Pelosi

By LISA MASCARO, CATHERINE LUCEY and JILL COLVIN WASHINGTON — Shutdown pressure on President Donald Trump mounted Wednesday as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called on him to delay his State of the Union address and his own economists acknowledged the prolonged standoff was having a greater economic drag than previously thought. In a letter to Trump, Pelosi cited security concerns, noting that both Secret Service and the Department of Homeland Security are affected by the partial government shutdown...

Frumpy Middle-aged Mom: I’m still in India. Let’s hope I’m alive

So, I’m in India. At least I hope I’m in India, because I wrote this before I left. If I’m not there, send out a search party. I’m pretty nervous about this trip, because I’m going all by myself. See, I decided that I wanted to go in January, which is now, and none of my friends could get away then to go with me. So I bought the plane ticket and plunked down the entire cost of a package tour with a company called Intrepid Travel, while I still had the money in my hot little hands. Normally, as a...

Section 8 rent checks in jeopardy if shutdown lasts until March

Tenants getting federal rent subsidies have yet to be affected by the partial government shutdown, now in its fourth week. But big problems could arise for those renters and their landlords should the shutdown last until March. Local housing authorities serving about 125,000 Section 8 tenants in the region say rent payments will run out after February if the shutdown continues. And the mere uncertainty of future payments may impact those now reaching the top of years-long waiting lists, making i...

E-scooters, dockless bicycles gaining foothold in Southern California as LA County drops orders to remove them

Like Uber and Lyft before them, the latest Silicon Valley startups also showed up uninvited, dropping electric scooters, battery-powered bicycles and other dockless, micro-mobile rentals onto streets and sidewalks of Southern California. The guerrilla marketing strategy aimed at busting the monopoly of the single-passenger car created multiple battlefronts in today’s “Scooter Wars,” sending some cities to the courts claiming they are a nuisance and an eyesore, and others writing regulations that...

Saints have been super at their home in playoffs, and it started against the Rams

It all started against the Rams, not that anyone from the organization is around to remember it. That’s because it was Dec. 2000 when the New Orleans Saints beat the then-St. Louis Rams in a wild-card-round playoff game at the Superdome. Current Rams coach Sean McVay had yet to turn 14. The Saints edged the Rams 31-28 that day and started a seven-game, 18-year streak of consecutive home playoff victories, one that will be tested when McVay and the Rams visit the Superdome on Sunday for the NFC c...

Long Beach says sea-level rise will bring dire flooding to some neighborhoods

Rising sea levels are not only going to increasingly flood parts of Long Beach, but could leave the most vulnerable neighborhoods uninhabitable within a generation or two, according to a city presentation Monday night that drew more 300 residents concerned about the city’s — and their own — future. “Residents can continue living on Naples and the Peninsula for several decades as long as you’re willing to experience occasional flooding,” said Jerry Schubel, a marine scientist and CEO of the Aquar...

LeBron James participates in Tuesday shootaround a day ahead of medical reevaluation

LOS ANGELES – Ahead of a much anticipated medical evaluation on Wednesday morning, some needed normalcy was on display at Tuesday’s Lakers shootaround. LeBron James shot 3-pointers in a quiet corner of the UCLA Health Training Center court alongside teammate Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, the most visible sign in nearly a month that his recovery from a strained left groin is moving forward.
