Want Snow? Try These Winter Activities in Quebec

“I’m sorry folks, but we are unable to land because the runway needs to be cleared off. We’ll be diverting to Montreal until they can get the snow cleared and will try again,” our pilot explained. My trip to Quebec actually started by getting delayed by the snow. I was tired and sad as my chance to stay in the Ice Hotel was slipping away with this blustery bad news, but when you go to a destination specifically for snowy winter activities, you actually kind of like hearing that there is too much...

For the third time, Schiff introduces Rim of the Valley bill to protect land in Simi Hills, Verdugo, Santa Susana and San Gabriel mountains

Maybe the third time is the charm. That could be the thinking behind U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Burbank, introducing for the third time a land preservation bill which would add more than 191,000 acres — called the Rim of the Valley Unit — to the already existing Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. On Wednesday, Schiff joined with Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris, both Democrats, in re-introducing into the 116th Congress the bill which failed adoption in the two previous attemp...

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority will host two open houses this month to discuss its findings on the Orange Line bus rapid transit improvements project, which is expected to speed up buses and beef up safety along the popular 18-mile route. Currently, it takes about an hour to travel along the Orange Line from North Hollywood to Chatsworth, Metro officials said.

‘Cobra Kai’ Season 2 Review: ‘Karate Kid’ Spinoff Waxes Its Way Onto A Great Second Season [SXSW]

Viewers who were hoping to see Daniel-San crane kicking through Miyagi-do in the first season of Cobra Kai may have been disappointed. The YouTube original series from Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg, and Josh Heald wisely saved their most crowd-pleasing moments for the beginning of Season Two, after viewers were already in the bag. Season One of the Karate Kid sequel, set 34 years after the original film, focused instead on Daniel’s rival Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) as he climbs out of a d...

Molcajete With Tortilla Basket

Thousands of years ago, people in modern-day Mexico's Tehuacán Valley began crafting molcajetes and tejolotes, mortar and pestle sets carved from volcanic rock. Corn as we know it was still a new thing then—that's how many thousands of years we're talking—but little about the stone tools has since changed. Find out why they're so well-loved with the aid of Jules Vertrees and Jacquie Lewis's authentic gourmet gift set. Made from the same stuff as its ancient counterparts, the molcajete is oven-sa...

Prosecutors decline to file case against L.A. synagogue security guard in shooting of YouTube personality

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles County prosecutors declined Wednesday to file an assault case against a Fairfax-district synagogue security guard who fired a shot into the ground that ricocheted, leaving a YouTube personality with a thigh wound. In a two-page charge evaluation worksheet, prosecutors wrote that they lacked “sufficient proof” to demonstrate that Edduin Zelayagrunfeld, 44, used an unreasonable level of force under the circumstances. The security guard — who works for Ohel Chana High Scho...

A monorail down the 405? Sherman Oaks residents submit their own Sepulveda Pass plan to little avail

President’s Day weekend was all it took for a Sherman Oaks engineer and architect duo to draft a mass transit concept from Van Nuys to LAX that they think gives Metro’s own proposals a run for their money. The big idea? A monorail running above the 405 freeway median — straight down the middle — that could be cheaper and easier to build while minimizing impacts on neighborhood streets from the South San Fernando Valley to the Westside. After Metro revealed its updated Sepulveda Transit Corridor ...

Best Olympic National Park trails

Set on Washington state’s massive Olympic Peninsula, Olympic National Park sprawls across more than a million acres, 95 percent of which has been designated as pristine wilderness.

With so much awe-inspiring territory, choosing from its 611 trails is a daunting task. Rest easy. These five off-the-beaten-path trails will help you beat the crowds and savor all that the Ol...

Beer on tap as tour of San Fernando Valley microbreweries offers glimpse of growing scene in the 818

At the Valley Relics Museum on Saturday, 23 people boarded a sleek black tour bus to get a taste of a nascent, but growing, trade in the San Fernando Valley, micro-breweries. Their host was Cassie Angel, a “Valley Girl, born and raised” and comedian. There are 10 micro-breweries in the San Fernando Valley, Angel said, and therefore no reason to head into Los Angeles proper for entertainment. “I hate going over the hill to L.A. to do everything that we have here, including parking,” Angel joked w...

One for the Ages: Ray Whitney’s 2011-12 NHL Season

There is something to say for longevity. In professional sports, longevity typically means one thing more than any other – it means relevancy. A player needs to be good enough at his/her craft, willing to adapt and adjust over the years, keep healthy, and be relevant to their sport and to their team in order to compete for a considerable length of time. Winger Ray Whitney certainly possessed relevancy throughout his entire NHL career. The Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta native played 22 seasons in th...

6 places to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in the San Fernando Valley

I am not Irish. But I grew up in an Irish neighborhood, in an Irish city, wishing I was. For awhile, I suggested my last name was O’Shindler, in the hope that I would pass. When I got out of college, I made a beeline for Dublin, where I spent many happy days (and nights) wandering from pub to pub, drinking Guinness and listening to old fellows (in Dublin, everyone seemed to be an old fellow) telling long tales about the old days and old ways. I never got tired of listening. I suspect in part it ...

Dragonfly, ethics, and infrastructure spending

Yesterday’s analysis of the ethical tradeoffs faced by engineers working in the Valley certainly lit up my inbox with responses. The general thesis of that piece is that startups and tech companies face more — and worse — tradeoffs as they have migrated from the “purity” of the early internet into more socially and ethically complicated spaces like labor, social media, health, and elsewhere. That led me to suggest that: If you disagree with the ethics of your company, the best course of action —...

LAUSD Election 2019: With progressive veteran in the lead, the runners-up for LA School Board are in a tight race for run-off

Front-runner and labor favorite Jackie Goldberg continued leading the pack in the Los Angeles Unified School District’s school board district 5 election Wednesday. But the race for a seat that could tilt the political shift of the school board was far from over. Goldberg, who won just over 48 percent of the vote in Tuesday’s election, will most likely face a runoff against one of two candidates who are now in an extremely tight battle for second place.

L.A.’s ability to clear streets of homeless camps takes hit after City Council vote to settle lawsuit over Skid Row cleanups

LOS ANGELES – The City Council voted Wednesday to settle a lawsuit that has altered Los Angeles’ policies on seizing the property of homeless people on Skid Row, and the decision will likely limit the city’s efforts in taking on sidewalk encampments. The city has long struggled with how to clean up and regulate homeless encampments, and in 2016 passed a law limiting the amount of belongings a homeless person can store on the sidewalk to 60 gallons. But in response to a lawsuit, a federal judge i...
