Transportation officials will hold a community meeting in the San Fernando Valley to present updated concepts for the Sepulveda Transit Corridor project, designed to ease traffic on the nation’s busiest freeway.

On the Northridge earthquake’s 25th anniversary, a Valley hospital that was in the thick of it rolls out an early warning system

“Earthquake. Earthquake. Expect shaking. Drop, cover and hold on. Expect shaking now. Take protective action.” That message will be heard seconds before an earthquake hits at Dignity Health Northridge Hospital Medical Center. The ShakeAlert Early Warning System, developed by U.S. Geological Survey and Cal Tech, was launched Thursday, and once it’s fully operational and training on it is complete, it will use a system of hand-held radios, GPS and an overhead paging system to deliver notification ...

Bradley Whitford on the ‘Obligation’ to Speak Out Politically

Having starred on Aaron Sorkin’s “The West Wing” for seven seasons, Bradley Whitford is certainly no stranger to political television. Now he’s in two more such series: Nat Geo’s exploration of the dot-com era, “Valley of the Boom” in which he plays real-life Netscape CEO James Barksdale, as well as Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” in […]

25 years after the Northridge earthquake, what will it take to prepare for the next big one? A smaller one, experts say

Tucked in the back of a parking lot near Van Nuys Airport, Jeff Edelstein has run a survival equipment store for the last 30 years. And in that time, he’s learned a few things about being ready for a disaster. He’s noticed a familiar pattern: After big disasters, selling emergency kits is easy. As several large fires menaced Los Angeles and Ventura counties over the last two years — first the Thomas and Creek fires in late 2017 and the Woolsey fire that ended last November — sales picked up at h...

‘I thought I would die’: She survived the Northridge earthquake, and it changed her life

Andrea Alvarado was in her rented Granada Hills home on Jan. 17, 1994, when her bedroom walls and windows began to rattle. She jumped out of her bed and headed to the living room to find her door blocked. A piano rolled across the hallway and barricaded the entrance. Alvarado began pounding on the door and screaming. “I thought I would die,” she said. “I grew up in L.A., and as kids we would laugh when the lamps went back and forth. It was like riding a roller coaster. But that day, it jolted an...

Why Did Jesus Choose to Live in Capernaum?

Quiet Capernaum (Kfar Nahum or “Nathan’s village”) wraps around the northwestern shore of the Sea of Galilee. It’s surrounded by lush, rolling hills that invite easy living—likely the reason a large number of Jews migrated there from Jerusalem after returning from Babylon. Of this region the first-century Jewish historian Josephus wrote: The country that lies over against this lake has the same name of Gennesaret; its nature is wonderful as well as its beauty; its soil is so fruitful t...

Vanguard Group Founder John Bogle Dies At Age 89

VALLEY FORGE, Pa. (AP) — Vanguard Group founder and investing pioneer John C. Bogle has died at age 89, according to the company. Bogle simplified investing for the masses by introducing the first index mutual fund for individual investors in 1976. Vanguard also shook up the industry by ending the company’s reliance on outside brokers by directly marketing its funds to investors without charging upfront fees known as sales loads. Bogle served as Vanguard’s chairman and CEO from its 1974 foundi...

What do you think of the LAUSD teacher strike?

Second-largest school district in the nation or not, many Southern Californians have little to no personal connection to the Los Angeles Unified School District. That’s because we are so vast a region and population, with many dozens of districts, along with charters and independent schools, teaching our children. But most of us have still been avidly following the build-up to the now-real strike by the 30,000 teachers of the UTLA union, whether we have an 8th-grader at Walter Reed Middle School...

Why Silicon Valley needs more visas

Henrique Dubugras Contributor Share on Twitter Henrique Dubugras is the founder Brex, the billion-dollar corporate credit provider for startups. When I hear protesters shout, “Immigrants are welcome here!” at the San Francisco immigration office near my startup’s headquarters, I think about how simple a phrase that is for a topic that is so nuanced, especially for me as an immigrant entrepreneur.

Dennis McCarthy: From the rubble of the Northridge earthquake, the best of humanity shined

Jan 17, 1994 – 4:30 a.m. – one minute before a massive 6.7 earthquake rocked our world. Mitch Schuster is standing at an elevator outside the emergency room at Northridge Hospital waiting for an orderly to take his pregnant wife, Vicki, to the delivery room upstairs. She’s in a world of pain and Mitch is losing patience waiting. The elevator door opens and he begins to wheel his wife in, but changes his mind at the last moment. He’ll give the orderly another minute. A young resident sits on th...

LAUSD teachers went on strike in 1989. But are the stakes higher in 2019?

Whether they were stuck in an auditorium or playing long-term hooky, many a school kid old enough to remember the 1989 Los Angeles teachers strike recalls the period as nine days of good old-fashioned lawlessness. Quoted in a New York Times article at the time, LAPD Lieut. Frank Valdez expressed his concern about “little predators” roaming LA’s downtown streets. “The problem kids are not going to go to school and it’s going to create problems all over, not just on campus,” he said during the str...

Billionaire tech investor Reid Hoffman said the explosive growth of tech giants like Facebook has led to major problems, but warns that regulation may not be an easy fix

Billionaire tech investor and LinkedIn cofounder Reid Hoffman is one of the most influential people in Silicon Valley. He said tech companies have lost the public's trust because they've adapted poorly to rapid growth, and need to stop being naive or stubborn. He does not believe that increased government regulation is a quick fix, because the companies in question grow too quickly. This article is part of Business Insider's ongoing series on Better Capitalism. Americans are living in a New G...
