Rams’ Troy Hill, other pass defenders making the right moves

So far, the 2020 Rams are handling everything the world throws at them. That’s saying a lot, because in the season’s first two games, the world had Dak Prescott and Carson Wentz doing the throwing. A main reason the Rams are 2-0 is their remade pass defense has faced two of the NFL’s most dangerous quarterbacks and passed the test with flying colors. Sunday, you could credit a flying Darious Williams, as well as a diving Troy Hill, just to name the defensive backs who made the pivotal and final ...

Rams running backs Cam Akers, Malcolm Brown fighting injuries

The Rams are confident their running back “committee” can make the ground game go. The question is if the committee will ever be healthy enough to convene a quorum. After Cam Akers and Malcolm Brown came out of the 37-19 victory over the Eagles in Philadelphia on Sunday with injuries, all three backs have already been dinged, and the season is only two games old. First, Darrell Henderson’s training-camp hamstring pull limited him to three carries in the Week 1 win over the Dallas Cowboys. Now, B...

Chargers need to involve Austin Ekeler, Keenan Allen to upset Chiefs

COSTA MESA — The Chargers were reminded this week it would be unwise to get into a shootout Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs for their SoFi Stadium debut. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor didn’t agree with that approach because they’ll need to score many points against the defending Super Bowl champions. The 16 total points in the season-opening win against the Cincinnati Bengals likely won’t be enough versus the Chiefs. “If it’s a shootout, then it is one,” Taylor told reporters Wednesday. “But at...

Forecasters run out of storm names in busy hurricane season

By ANGIE WANG and JAY REEVES | Associated Press LOXLEY, Ala. — Forecasters ran out of traditional names for storms Friday, forcing them to begin using the Greek alphabet for only the second time since the 1950s, with more than two months left in the record-shattering hurricane season. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of people were still without power along the Alabama coast and the Florida panhandle in the aftermath of Hurricane Sally. Officials continued to assess millions of dollars in damage...

Six months of pandemic photography in the Southern California

One day, this will all be over. Coronavirus will be gone and we’ll get back to normal. But what will we remember? For the past six months, almost every facet of our lives has changed – covered faces, empty shelves, remote learning and drive-thru everything. Our photographers have been working throughout this pandemic to tell the stories of the people of Southern California and record history for our posterity. For our photographers, it’s personal.

Apple's Upcoming Fitness+ Service Planned Long Before Pandemic

Apple on Tuesday introduced a new Fitness+ home workout service that offers guided training videos that can be watched on iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV and monitored with the Apple Watch. Given that Fitness+ provides videos that are ideal for people who are unable to visit gyms and other facilities, it has been seen as a logical response to the ongoing health crisis, but Apple's Chief Operating Officer Jeff Williams today told Reuters that it was planned long ago. MacRumors in March discovered s...

8 Blue Jackets All-Time Points-Per-Game Leaders

To win in today’s NHL, a team needs to score goals. Not only does a team need players who shoot, it needs the playmakers who get the puck to the shooter. Consider this: in the modern history of the NHL, only twice has a player scored three goals in a game without any assists on those goals. One of those unassisted hat tricks was by the legendary Maurice “Rocket” Richard, after whom the league’s annual goal-scoring trophy is named. The other was by then-Columbus Blue Jacket Rick Nash. In the b...

How Restaurant Owners Are Keeping Their Doors Open During the Pandemic

It would be tough to find a business that hasn’t been negatively impacted by the pandemic. Restaurant businesses are among the hardest hit. Ironically, although the restaurant business can be extremely competitive, owners are sharing information with the goal of helping each other survive. One “hub” for sharing and updating information has been the Corona Virus Response Kit for Restaurants. Jim Williams, CEO of MustHaveMenus, talked to SBT about the evolution of the response kit. First, most no...

Nervous rookie Joshua Kelley ignites Chargers’ rally vs. Bengals

Chargers running back Joshua Kelley tossed and turned until 2 a.m. because he was thinking of various scenarios of how his first NFL game would play out. Half a day later, Kelley learned it was the nail-biting scenario with him scoring the game-tying touchdown in the fourth quarter comeback against the Cincinnati Bengals. “It would have been hard to win that game without Joshua today,” Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said after the Chargers’ 16-13 comeback win Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium. The Charg...

Naomi Osaka rallies at US Open to win 3rd Grand Slam

NEW YORK — After one errant forehand in the first set of the U.S. Open final, Naomi Osaka looked at her coach in the mostly empty Arthur Ashe Stadium stands with palms up, as if to say, “What the heck is happening?” In response to another wayward forehand against Victoria Azarenka seconds later, Osaka chucked her racket. It spun a bit and rattled against the court. Surprisingly off-kilter in the early going Saturday, Osaka kept missing shots and digging herself a deficit. Until, suddenly, she li...

Sparks lose to Aces, end regular season with a whimper

With Saturday’s loss to the Las Vegas Aces, the Los Angeles Sparks gained an amount of certainty. But some lingering questions remain. With the 84-70 defeat in the regular-season finale, the Sparks were cemented into the No. 3 seed in the WNBA playoffs. The dream of a double-bye and the extra rest that came with it is over. Los Angeles will play Thursday in the single-elimination second round. But the Sparks had more to play for Saturday than just additional days off. They needed to prove to the...

Denver’s Michal Porter Jr. makes another statement against Clippers

This time it’ll be Michael Porter Jr.’s timely shot, block and rebound that’ll come up on sports talk shows, and not any ill-timed postgame comments. The 22-year-old from Missouri shared his frustration after the Clippers won Game 4, 96-85, saying: “We kept going to (Nikola Jokic) and (Jamal Murray) and I think they are two amazing players, you can never get mad at that, but I just think to beat that team we got to get more players involved.” Porter finished with 15 points in Game 4, but got no ...

Chargers vs. Bengals analysis: Linval Joseph key to slowing Joe Mixon

COSTA MESA — The focus has been on quarterback Joe Burrow making his NFL debut against the Chargers’ defense Sunday. But it’s the other Joe on the Cincinnati Bengals’ offense the Chargers should be more concerned about. Joe Mixon, one of the best running backs in the NFL, could present the Chargers with many challenges, including something as basic as tackling. “With a guy like that, you gotta make sure you’re hitting him in the right spots,” Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa said about Mixon. “T...

For some of us (no names) the world of TikTok is baffling and bizarre. Why does Gen Z flock to it? Who knows, but they do, in droves. Anyone can be a “creator” on what Jason Parham at Wired calls “the most exciting cultural product of this time.” It also happens to be a place where “digital blackface” has evolved—an online cultural phenomenon in which Black users of a platform get disproportionately censored while others who adopt the trappings of Black American culture, often in exagger...
