UCLA men’s basketball has a chance to climb to top of Pac-12 standings

Four months ago, before the start of the season, the UCLA men’s basketball team found itself projected to finish in eighth place in the Pac-12 preseason rankings. It was the program’s lowest preseason Pac-12 finish since the conference was extended to 12 teams in 2011. With a new coach and a young team, no one knew how the season would unfold. After ending their nonconference slate with a humbling loss to Cal State Fullerton, the Bruins opened league play going 1-3. But then something changed. T...

Inside the Efforts to Prepare African Countries for COVID-19

As the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases increases around the world—with new clusters recently emerging in Italy, Iran and South Korea—the World Health Organization (WHO) warns that its “biggest worry” is to make sure that the disease does not spread in countries with weaker health systems that have historically struggled to contain infectious disease outbreaks in the past, many of which are in Africa. The WHO has prioritized response and detection measures in 13 African countries because ...

UC Irvine’s Evan Leonard finding his range at right time of season

Postseason college basketball tournaments are nearly here. “We’re playing for a championship with each game that we play now and it’s a fun time to be playing in college basketball,” said UC Irvine coach Russ Turner, whose team leads the standings at 11-2, 3-1/2 games ahead of second-place Santa Barbara (7-5) and . “We’re excited.” Of course, Turner feels that way.

LaunchPad Lift Spotlight: Hatch Credit

Highlights of student-led ventures participating in LaunchPad Lift, a program of the Blackstone LaunchPad powered by Techstars entrepreneurship network. When Mike Broughton, a student at USC, was $10,000 short on tuition his freshman year, he learned that getting a loan usually requires a credit score. Unfortunately, getting that first credit card requires the healthy credit history of either the primary or a secondary (guarantor) account holder – something many low-income and nontraditional c...

Blockchain: Where does the real potential lie?

The hype around blockchain technology has been sufficiently steady since its arrival. But UCLA professor Ramesh Srinivasan reveals the real potential in this relatively new technology is far from its connection to cryptocurrency.To tap this potential, it's necessary to move away from the individualistic intentions to which blockchain so often applies. For example, taking root in areas that have fallen victim to disaster capitalism like Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria.To overcome these...

California Showcase has become a showpiece for young football players

When former UCLA coach Terry Donahue, his younger brother Pat and a group of volunteers launched the California Showcase prep football combine in 2013, the hope was this was something that would be around for years to come. That hope has turned into reality. The eighth annual California Showcase combine, a one-day free event, was held Saturday at the vast Great Park of Orange County in Irvine – the site of the former El Toro Marine Corps Air Station. There are several other Showcase combines loc...

UCLA gymnastics fall to Utah despite Grace Glenn’s first perfect-10

LOS ANGELES >>> It was four years coming for Grace Glenn. Years of putting in sweat, tears and hard work into the dedication to mastering the sole event of the balance beam. She had earned All-Pac-12 honors in 2018 and finished as the Pac-12 Co-Champion in 2019. But never had she been perfect. Until Sunday. Opening the event for the Bruins, Glenn earned her first career perfect-10 on the balance beam, making history as the only gymnast in the NCAA to perform flawlessly on the event in the lead-o...

UCLA basketball rallies in 2nd half to beat No. 18 Colorado

BOULDER, Colo. — The NCAA Tournament was unlikely for UCLA four games into the Pac-12 Conference schedule. With three games to go in the regular season, the Bruins are making a case to get there. “All that stuff takes care of itself if you win games,” coach Mick Cronin said. UCLA added another solid win to its resume, rallying from nine down to beat No. 18 Colorado 70-63 on Saturday. The Bruins tied the Buffaloes atop the Pac-12 standings.

UCLA gymnastics leads social media impression, leaves lasting impact at meets

Every day when Emma Andres comes into the Yates Gym for practice, she takes a moment to look around. She gazes up at the historic photos lined along the walls of past championships and former gymnasts. She notes the team’s matching Bruin blue warm up shirts all with the UCLA script big and bold on their chests. Lastly, she looks at her teammates. The faces and names she grew up admiring and looking up to now surround her. “The fact that I’m on the team is still so surreal to me,” she said. Befor...

Section 230 Protects Zillow for Bogus Submissions of House Details–924 Bel Air v. Zillow

This lawsuit relates to 924 Bel Air Road in Los Angeles, a house known as “Billionaire” (seriously, who chose that brand???). It is one of the most expensive houses in the world. The house is located on an acre+ lot in the Bel Air hills above UCLA. In 2012, a developer bought the property and built a monstrosity targeting the 1% of the 1% of the 1%. The nominal stats are pretty gauche: 38,000 square feet, 12 bedrooms, 21 bathrooms. However, it’s the little details that really make me shake my h...

Charisma Osborne scores 32 to lead UCLA women’s basketball past Washington State

PULLMAN, Wash. — UCLA coach Cori Close had one thing to say about her team’s come-from-behind win over Washington State: Thank goodness for Charisma Osborne. “We were in a heap of trouble if it weren’t for Charisma,” Close said. “The bottom line is though, I’m bringing the joy because we found a way.” Osborne had a career-high 32 points and 11 rebounds and No. 8 UCLA rallied in the fourth quarter and beat Washington State 70-62 Friday night. Trailing 61-57 with 3:30 remaining, Osborne was fouled...

Bill Seltzer is the fourth Marine on the right in the photo above, the one with his foot on the stump in front of the American flag flying over Mt. Suribachi on Iwo Jima, 75 years ago this Sunday, Feb. 23. We’ve all seen the iconic picture AP Photographer Joe Rosenthal took of the flag being raised, but not many have seen this one he took of a platoon of Marines who made it to the top, smiling and celebrating in front of the flag. Those smiles would soon fade as they made the treacherous journey...

UCLA men face Colorado for potential tiebreaker in Pac-12 standings

The Bruins have finally become the defensive team Coach Mick Cronin has been striving to turn them into all season. And it’s showing. At Utah on Thursday, UCLA prevented the Utes from making a 3-pointer until halfway through the second half, and Utah ended the game 3 for 12 from beyond the arc for its second-worst performance from distance during Pac-12 play this season. “Defensively, we couldn’t have played much better,” Cronin told reporters following UCLA’s 69-58 defeat of Utah. “We’ve slowly...

USC basketball putting its fate in NCAA selection committee’s hands with recent losses

The ramifications of the USC men’s basketball team’s 70-66 loss to No. 18 Colorado on Thursday go beyond just one game in the Trojans’ 31-game schedule. On its surface, a four-point road loss to a ranked opponent that beat you by 21 three weeks ago doesn’t look so bad. But dig deeper, and some troubling trends emerge. USC (19-8) fell to 8-6 in the Pac-12 Conference, and with four games left it’s conceivable the Trojans fall below .500 in conference play after entering February 6-2. Worse, USC is...

President Trump’s Take on Parasite Echoes an Old Debate Over the Role of Non-American Films at the Oscars

Nostalgia has been a regular theme at rallies for President Donald Trump since before he was elected — he is, after all, the man who wants to make America great again. On Thursday night, at a rally in Colorado Springs, Trump directed that sentiment at the movie industry, dismissing the South Korean film Parasite, which won this year’s Oscar for Best Picture. “We’ve got enough problems with South Korea with trade; on top of it, they give it the best movie of the year,” Trump said. “Let’s get...
