  • Graphics: UCLA football season preview

    Daily Bruin
    27 Aug 2014 | 4:40 pm
    The Daily Bruin analyzes a few UCLA football tidbits through statistical graphics – one each day for the next three days – to gear up for UCLA’s season opener Saturday at Virginia. Wednesday, Aug. 27: The Pass Rush Through three weeks of UCLA’s fall camp, coach Jim Mora mentioned it multiple times:The Bruins’ pass rush, or lack thereof, concerns him. Judging by the look of the team’s schedule, he has a reason to worry. UCLA faces many Pac-12 teams this year with elite quarterbacks. No surprise there. After all, it has been dubbed “The year of the…
  • Hundley ready to take hits prior to UCLA football’s Virginia matchup

    Kevin Bowman
    26 Aug 2014 | 1:45 pm
    It’s been eight months and 26 days since Brett Hundley has taken a hit. Not since UCLA’s 42-12 Sun Bowl win over Virginia Tech on Dec. 31, when he was sacked twice, has the redshirt junior quarterback been placed on his back. In the spring and fall camps since then, Hundley and the quarterbacks have donned first red, then yellow no-contact jerseys, meaning any defensive player who gets over-excited on a pass rush in scrimmage will regret doing so. But although the Bruins are looking to protect their most valuable asset, Hundley is still itching to take off the yellow jersey; he…
  • After 6.0-magnitude Napa Valley quake, students recount experiences

    Jeong Park
    26 Aug 2014 | 1:16 am
    UCLA students and Napa residents experienced the strongest earthquake in the Bay Area since 1989 on Sunday, with a 6.0-magnitude quake shaking the town of about 78,000 and beyond. “At first, it felt like a small rumble,” said Olivia Hansell, a fourth-year human biology and society student who was home for the weekend in Napa. “Then the earthquake really started whipping my house … and I watched the walls basically sway like Jell-O.” UCLA students are no strangers to earthquakes, especially with two occurring near the campus in 2014, the most recent in June.

    Ask Myles Jack about it. ‘With some turnover in the linebacker group, what do you say to people to ease those concerns?’ To him, the answer is simple. “I wouldn’t say it’s a turnover,” the sophomore linebacker said. “We’re just evolving.” Last year, the quartet of then-freshman Jack, then-senior Anthony Barr, then-redshirt junior Eric Kendricks and then-senior Jordan Zumwalt made a name for itself: ‘Linebacker U,’ as UCLA football once put it. Mixing, mashing and comparing position groups, the four together were unequivocally the team’s top starting unit. Now,…

Michael Egan III said in a previous court filing that he wanted to dismiss the lawsuit, not because it lacks merit but because he can’t find a new lawyer to represent him. Singer sought to have the case dismissed with prejudice, meaning it couldn’t be re-filed, with attorney costs and fees imposed against Egan. U.S. District Judge Susan Oki Mollway denied…

Unless you dutifully recognize that name from studying songwriting credits, you know him as Elvis Costello. He poked his head out of the original mid 70s British punk scene, chained himself to a post outside of the London record company that eventually signed him and started down the road of exploring every nook and cranny of the musical landscape. I have on cassette a great FM radio show from 1977; Costello snarls his way through a bunch of his…

    La Jewish LawyerWhen you have a claim against either your insurance company, or file a claim against another insurance company, you will deal with an “adjuster”.

Nothing could be more disheartening than to file for bankruptcy with the assumption that all your debts will be discharged, only to be faced with objections from your creditors.
