Senior Moments: Thinking of James Taylor, the passing of time and losing the light

“The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time,” James Taylor has been softly singing in my head during the quarantine. He seemed to know I needed the reminder, consistently turning up with it at just the right moment. Tonight, on what I would call a time-change evening – because it is chilly and our clocks are about to fall back – I am enjoying the passage of time writing this by the fire… But I’m struggling because the lighter side of time is running short and that always leaves me feelin...

How Rusty Eye made COVID-safe music videos at LA’s legendary Jumbo’s Clown Room

When the pandemic hit back in March, many musical artists pivoted to some sort of livestreaming outlet to perform, chat or release fresh content. Los Angeles-based heavy metal trio Rusty Eye hasn’t gotten in the livestreaming game yet, but the band has been ferociously promoting its new album, “Dissecting Shadows,” which dropped on Oct. 23. It’s a fun and horror-filled record that plays out like a script from a slasher film with cuts like “Mrs. Baylock,” which pays homage to the character from t...

Senior Living: Older COVID patients battle ‘brain fog,’ weakness and emotional turmoil

“Lord, give me back my memory.” For months, as Marilyn Walters has struggled to recover from COVID-19, she has repeated this prayer day and night. Like other older adults who’ve become critically ill from the coronavirus, Walters, 65, describes what she calls “brain fog” — difficulty putting thoughts together, problems with concentration, the inability to remember what happened a short time before. This sudden cognitive dysfunction is a common concern for seniors who’ve survived a serious bout o...

By ZEKE MILLER, ALEXANDRA JAFFE and KEVIN FREKING | Associated Press WATERFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. — President Donald Trump dangled a promise to get a weary, fearful nation “back to normal” on Friday as he looked to campaign past the political damage of the devastating pandemic. It was a tantalizingly rosy pitch in sharp contrast to Democratic rival Joe Biden, who pledged to level with America about tough days still ahead after Tuesday’s election.

First the UCs didn’t require SAT, and now it’s not allowed, say judges

SAN FRANCISCO — Student applicants to the University of California can’t submit their standardized test scores with their admissions as the system works to phase out the exam requirements, a state appeals court ruled Thursday. UC regents voted in May to drop the SAT and ACT test scores as admission requirements but permitted individual campuses to allow optional, voluntary submissions for 2021 and 2022. a lawsuit says the scores place low-income students, minorities and people with disabilities ...

Just in time for Halloween, Blaze has a pizza with ghost pepper meatballs

What happens when the Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza executive chef starts experimenting with hot peppers? One scary meatball. Blaze Pizza is serving these balls of fire on top of a limited-time item called Blazin’ Hot Chicken Pizza at all its locations. Brad Kent, the chef and also co-founder of the Pasadena-based chain, said the idea came about when a colleague suggested he create something to tap into the Nashville hot chicken craze — which is kind of a challenge since Blaze doesn’t fry chicken. “Wh...

Recently released state guidelines allow Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood and other large California theme parks to reopen at 25% capacity in tier 4 of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s four-tier Blueprint for a Safer Economy. Which raises the question: How long will California theme parks stay at 25% capacity? The answer: Indefinitely. At least, at the moment. “When do I get 50%? When do I get 100%? Never?” Belmont Park General Manager Steve Thomas said. “25% is not something we can survive on.” Sign...

Separated by the coronavirus pandemic while living, it was only Lugasan’s death that allowed Soriano-Versoza to see her for the first time in months. Soriano-Versoza met Lugasan in May 2018 when Lugasan stepped into an FBI agent’s car and got away from the family that enslaved her as a domestic worker for, accor...

Is Dodgers’ World Series title cheapened by unique 2020 season?

ARLINGTON, Texas — There was only one World Series championship available to win in 2020. But how does the Dodgers’ win after the most unique – and shortest – season in Major League Baseball history stand up to the 115 World Series winners that came before? “I think if you can pull back stuff from summer camp to that date you mentioned I think my answer is still the same,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “(If there was) a championship to be had, we wanted it. All that has encompassed all of u...

The one sure way to kill these beautiful, hardy plants is with too much water and fertilizer

Some of the most glamorous plants for Southern California gardens come from a region whose soil is so poor in nutrients that fires are essential in providing fertilizer in the form of ashes for the existing flora. I am speaking about South Africa’s Cape floristic region. This area is more packed with endemic species than any other place on earth. “Endemic” describes plants that are native to a specific place. Our own Channel Islands, for example, are famous for the seventy endemic species that g...

On virus, Trump and health advisers go their separate ways

By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR | Associated Press WASHINGTON — A multi-state coronavirus surge in the countdown to Election Day has exposed a clear split between President Donald Trump’s bullish embrace of a return to normalcy and urgent public warnings from the government’s top health officials. It’s the opposite of what usually happens in a public health crisis, because political leaders tend to repeat and amplify the recommendations of their health experts, not short-circuit them. “It’s extremely...

Proposition 25: Future of cash bail system in voters’ hands

The fate of California’s controversial cash bail system is in the hands of voters, but disagreements over what could take the place of bail has divided those who have long fought to bring it to an end. If approved, Proposition 25 would overhaul the pretrial system by doing away with cash bail and instituting a risk assessment system to determine if a defendant should remain behind bars while they await their day in court. Civil rights groups have long fought against the cash bail system, arguing...
