Bed Bath & Beyond sales miss analyst estimates; shares fall

By Jonathan Roeder and Jordyn Holman | Bloomberg Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. tumbled as much as 21% in premarket trading after reporting second-quarter sales that missed expectations and reducing its full-year outlook, with the delta COVID-19 variant eroding the home-goods retailer’s store traffic. Revenue in the quarter ended Aug. 28 fell 26% from a year earlier to $1.99 billion, short of the $2.06 billion estimate from analysts compiled by Bloomberg. The closely watched retail metric of same-store ...

Angels’ Shohei Ohtani won’t pitch again this season

ARLINGTON, Texas — Shohei Ohtani’s season as a pitcher is over. Manager Joe Maddon announced on Wednesday that the two-way star will not pitch in the season finale in Seattle on Sunday because Ohtani and the Angels decided there was nothing left to gain by pitching another game. Ohtani will continue to hit throughout the final week of the season, Maddon said. “There’s really nothing left to prove on the mound,” Maddon said. “I think he’s exceeded expectations on the mound this year. Anybody that...

Survey: 40% of employees ‘somewhat likely’ to quit their jobs in 3 to 6 months

Feel like quitting your job? You’re not alone. More than 15 million U.S. workers have left their jobs since April, and 40% of employees surveyed in the U.S., Australia, Canada, Singapore and the United Kingdom say they’re “somewhat likely” to quit in the next three to six months, a new report says. The report from McKinsey & Co. doesn’t bode well for the scores of employers who are scrambling to fill all of their job openings amid a fractured COVID-19 economy. And it gets worse. The report — whi...

Map: 1 of every 8 acres in California has burned in 10 years, and here are the state’s biggest fires

If it seems like wildfires in California are getting larger, they are. Nine of the state’s 10 largest wildfires since 1932, when modern records began, have occurred in the past decade. And amazingly, the eight largest have all burned since 2017. Why? “It’s a combination of everything — climate change, decades of fire suppression and drought,” said Craig Clements, director of San Jose State University’s Fire Weather Lab. Some fire experts call them “megafires,” blazes larger than 100,000 acres th...

Where you can play bingo at Southern California casinos

Most of the gaming options at Southern California’s tribal-owned casinos that had been shuttered by the coronavirus pandemic are now back up and running, with one major exception: bingo. While some of the region’s bingo halls are welcoming people and daubers, others have remained closed. And at least for one closed bingo spot, there’s an upgrade on the way.

How LA rock band Dead Sara found inspiration during the pandemic for album ‘Ain’t It Tragic’

Last year, Los Angeles rock band Dead Sara was about to enter the studio to write and record its third album when cases of COVID-19 began spiking across the United States. As the world shut down around them, the album was put on hold. After some long months, vocalist-guitarist Emily Armstrong, lead guitarist Siouxsie Medley and drummer Sean Friday got the go-ahead to continue. “That was like the saving grace for me and for us, to have something to look forward to and to be able to create,” Armst...

New law counts ‘workforce’ apartments as meeting middle-income housing quotas

California cities and counties soon will be able to count middle-income apartment conversions toward their affordable housing quotas under a bill Gov. Gavin Newsom signed Tuesday, Sept. 28. The “workforce housing” legislation was one of 28 housing bills Newsom signed Tuesday, the governor’s office said. The measure, Assembly Bill 787, is expected to incentivize local governments to adopt an innovative “missing middle” program that converts market-rate complexes into middle-income housing in exch...

Heat returning to Southern California beginning Thursday

Hot conditions are coming back to Southern California, forecasters say, after a brief respite this week of overcast skies and much cooler temperatures. By Thursday, temperatures in some areas of Southern California will be back up to 90 degrees or hotter thanks to a transition from onshore flow to mild Santa Ana winds, meteorologists said on Tuesday, Sept. 28. “It’ll be enough for some gusty winds, but nothing too drastic,” said David Sweet, a National Weather Service meteorologist. The heat was...

Harvest Crusade returns to Angel Stadium this week for one-day in-person event

Last year, for the first time in its 31-year history, the SoCal Harvest or the Harvest Crusade — the region’s longest-running revival meeting that usually features three days of sermons, Christian music from leading artists and professions of faith — was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. This year, Pastor Greg Laurie, who leads Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside and Irvine, will take the stage Sunday, Oct. 3 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim.

Dodgers’ Jaime Jarrín to retire after 2022 season

Jaime Jarrín, the Dodgers’ Spanish-language radio broadcaster since 1959, has a signature call. It’s only available to those who wait until the very end of a nine-inning baseball game, which Jarrín describes as the “u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-ltimo” chance ― drawing out the “u” while a closer throws his warm-up pitches. For Jarrín, the 2022 season will be his ultimo chance to call a baseball game. On Tuesday the Dodgers announced Jarrín, who turns 86 in December, will retire after next season ― his 64th wi...

Fatal plunge at Petco Park: Mother was jumping on table, witness says

A witness to the fall that killed a mother and her 2-year-old son Saturday at a Padres game said the woman was jumping on the bench of a picnic table with the boy in her arms when they both went over the railing. The two were killed at about 3:50 p.m. when they fell 60 feet to the sidewalk below the third-level concourse of Petco Park in San Diego. Police have not released the names of the pair, but said the woman was 40 years old and from San Diego. She and the child were at the game with the c...

Bob Mould talks ‘American Crisis’ and returning to the stage ahead of L.A. concert

When Bob Mould moved back to San Francisco after several years in Berlin, the singer-guitarist looked at the state of our nation and realized he’d already written the first song for his next album. “American Crisis” was intended for his early 2019 release, “Sunshine Rock,” but got left off when Mould decided its darker themes didn’t fit the lighter feel of the rest of that record. But once back in the States, he says he saw the political, cultural, and societal ideals he cherished under attack, ...

Niles: 50 years later, it’s all Walt Disney’s world

Disneyland might have changed the travel industry by showing how amusement parks could become more immersive theme parks. But the Walt Disney World Resort changed entertainment by showing how a theme park could help make a company into a lifestyle brand. The Walt Disney World Resort opened 50 years ago, on Oct. 1, 1971. Disney is celebrating the anniversary with an 18-month-long “The World’s Most Magical Celebration.” Visitors will find a few new shows and a clone of the Ratatouille ride that Di...

Lakers’ training camp: 5 storylines as they look to regain title form

This much is guaranteed: The Lakers will look different this season. Really different. And yet, as the 2021-22 campaign launches Tuesday with the franchise introducing a roster with only three players back from last season, there are a number of toppings rolling off the tongue that carry a familiar ring. Every season has become a vigil on LeBron James’ dominant prime – how much longer can it last? All Lakers fans have developed a sensitivity to seeing Anthony Davis fall to the court; have rolled...

Unprecedented drought, heat mark start of fire season for Southern California

So far this year, Southern California has been spared the massive wildfires devastating swaths of Northern California, but the region’s days of reckoning are approaching. “The wildfire season really comes to a head in Southern California in October,” said Dan Cayan, a climate researcher at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. “A lot of other areas in California are more summer-centric.” The severity of the region’s drought, Santa Ana winds, and the likelihood of a La Nina system that could limit...

Pearl Jam’s Ohana Festival set of new songs, deep cuts reflects the event’s unique spirit

Typically, when the biggest rock bands in the world headline a festival in support of new music, fans get a greatest hits compilation come to life with dashes of new material sprinkled in among tried-and-true favorites. But Pearl Jam isn’t a typical rock band and Ohana isn’t a typical festival. The long-running Seattle-rooted juggernaut closed out the first weekend of the three-day festival, curated by frontman Eddie Vedder, at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point on Sunday, Sept. 26.

Will the hiring malaise ruin holiday shopping this year?

As Southern California employers struggle to fill seasonal jobs at stores, warehouses and other businesses, the lack of available workers may steal some of the joy from holiday shopping sprees. Rising consumer demand and a shortage of workers to handle myriad products are wreaking havoc with the nation’s supply chain, according to Southland economist John Husing. “It’s inundated,” he said. “There are 70 cargo ships sitting off the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach right now. That’s about 525,0...

How ‘Water: A Biography’ addresses climate change, resource security and more

The management of water has long been a complicated and, to be honest, brutally political business. Just consider the history of Los Angeles – or watch “Chinatown.” But it’s actually been more complicated and more political for even longer than you might think, which is why Giulio Boccaletti went back thousands of years to tell the complete story in “Water: A Biography,” out now from Pantheon.

Analysis: Angels’ Shohei Ohtani is clear choice for AL MVP

Before anyone gets the wrong idea and accuses me of denigrating Vladimir Guerrero Jr., let’s be clear: He’s great. He is one of the game’s best young stars, and he’s had a sensational season. The Toronto Blue Jays first baseman deserves all the accolades he’s received. But he’s not the American League MVP. Not this year. While some have been inclined to push the narrative that Guerrero is making a run at the MVP award that seemed to be wrapped up by Ohtani over the summer, from my perspective no...

Rams, Matthew Stafford ace test, beat Super Bowl champion Bucs

INGLEWOOD — It started as a high-pressure game, with no less on the line than whether the Rams were contenders or pretenders, but by the third quarter they were just having fun. DeSean Jackson was prancing to a long touchdown, and Matthew Stafford was sprinting to join the celebration. Kenny Young was sacking Tom Brady, Aaron Donald was throwing a ballcarrier for a drive-ending loss, and the defense was partying. The Rams weren’t just acquitting themselves against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, they ...
