Alexander: Bruins’ loss should get their attention

Play with fire often enough and you get torched. If there’s a lesson for UCLA’s men’s basketball Bruins out of Saturday’s 73-72 loss to Stanford in Santa Cruz – it accurately was a last-tenth-of-a-second loss – that would be it. That 8-0 conference record? Those six straight conference victories by six points or less? Maybe they created a false sense of security, a “we can dig ourselves out of any hole” attitude among a group that only this week climbed into the AP rankings at No. 24 and by the ...

Mick Cronin says UCLA’s shooters have yet to get hot

Support our UCLA athletics coverage by becoming a digital subscriber. Subscribe now. When the halftime buzzer sounded against Arizona, UCLA coach Mick Cronin looked down at the stat sheet and was mind-boggled by two numbers: the Bruins were shooting 60% from the field and the score was tied. “That’s so foreign to me,” he said chuckling in Tuesday afternoon’s Zoom press conference. “If that happened when I was at Cincinnati, we were up 20 (points). To be tied, it shows how we must improve on th...

Work on half-finished sections of Trump's Mexico wall is futile and in some places has made border security worse, campaigners say

A view of Guadelupe Canyon, Arizona, facing east, with switchback roads in the distance. Since this photograph was taken, a 100-foot canyon has been blasted here. John Darwin Kurc The rush to complete President Trump's border wall with Mexico is in some places worse than pointless, campaigners have told Insider. In order to reach the border, contractors have blasted roads into terrain that was once rugged and impassable. However, some areas still have no barrier erected, with work likely t...

WeLink raises $185M to deliver high-bandwidth wireless internet to the home using 5G

Cable or fiber. For the vast majority of American homes, there’s no choice of how customers get their internet access. If you’re lucky to live in some dense urban areas with amenable landlords, that ‘or’ might become an ‘and.’ Yet, as more and more people rely on the internet for more than just cat photos (and after recent events, maybe rely on cat photos as well for sustenance), it seems obvious the market needs more choice and competition. Utah-based WeLink wants to be that alternative. Taking...

Abolish civil asset forfeiture

Civil asset forfeiture, a process by which government is allowed to seize the property of Americans without even needing to charge them with a crime, is fundamentally contrary to America’s founding principles. Yet, as a new report from the Institute for Justice notes, the practice remains widespread with often inadequate constraints. Law enforcement agencies engage in the practice of civil asset forfeiture when they believe, in theory, that particular properties are somehow linked to a criminal ...

Just What Penance Does Warnock Want Gun Owners To Do?

Kelly Loeffler at the Range Georgia – -( One thing that Second Amendment supporters need to understand: Anti-Second Amendment extremists hate you. There is no compromise to be had with them.

For example, take a look at some of the rhetoric from Raphael Warnock, who is trying to unseat Kel...
