Heatwaves are killing workers on the job. The government needs to set new rules for employers before more Americans needlessly die.

A man wipes sweat from his face in sweltering heat. Getty Extreme heat is a public health crisis, just like the coronavirus pandemic.

Will Olympics without fans still be must-see TV?

The troubled, pandemic-delayed Tokyo Olympics finally get under way this week, but without fans in the stands, will the global sports showcase still make for must-see TV? Anxious NBC executives are surely breaking out in rivers of flop sweat.

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga recently announced that a state of emergency will ...

Congress should stop stalling autonomous vehicle technologies

Imagine you have the key to unlocking solutions on climate change and reducing traffic fatalities. It shouldn’t be too hard – what you’re imagining is actually the key to a self-driving car. California is ready for autonomous vehicles (AVs). As heat wave after heat wave crashes into the West Coast and as Los Angeles continues to struggle to reduce traffic deaths, we should be using every tool at our disposal to combat climate change and lower traffic fatalities. Instead, Congress is stalling pro...

Sex abuse scandals haunt USA Gymnastics even at the Olympics

TOKYO >> Ten years ago Tokyo hosted another major international gymnastics competition, the 2011 World Championships.

Good reason to be critical of a politicized race theory

SACRAMENTO – Americans can’t get enough of their knock-down, drag-out culture wars, as epitomized by the latest national battle over “critical race theory,” or CRT. Not many ordinary people could even provide a succinct definition of it, which is a 40-year-old academic notion that places race at the center of almost every national debate. The theory – increasingly taught at the K-12 level, in universities and in corporate training seminars – postulates that America’s legal, economic and politica...

The Fall Guy: Part Two

The post The Fall Guy: Part Two appeared first on iRunFar. Happy summer! Mountain trail running season is fully upon us and I’ve traded the silky-smooth volcanic-ash trails of the U.S.’s Cascade Range for the hard rock of Colorado. It’s been an adjustment! In addition to the altitude challenges I wrote about in this column last month, the sheer technicality of the trails in the Rocky Mountains is a stark contrast to the buffed-out singletrack diet I consumed in a decade of trail running in Oreg...
