  • Submission: Lack of USAC knowledge should not disqualify worthy candidate

    Allan Kew
    22 Oct 2014 | 11:48 am
    Around week one, a transfer student asked me why I was running for transfer representative without much USAC experience. I answered that learning and understanding are two different concepts. Learning is based on fleeting memorization, while understanding is grounded in skill and aptitude, which I have. I don’t know every USAC office name or elected official or the specific bylawsthat other candidates casually refer to in their speeches. But that information is only a Google search away. I understand the workings of a student government because I’ve worked through its politics and…

We are two Muslim women of color who have dealt with the transfer process and the culture shift of coming from community colleges to this large institution. We are dedicated to a high moral ground of progressive politics, with aspirations to represent those who, like ourselves, are under­represented. We envision an equitable UCLA.

  • UCLA football needs to guard against nation’s most prolific receiver

    Kevin Bowman
    22 Oct 2014 | 7:24 am
    Of all the Pac-12’s dynamic receivers – USC’s Nelson Agholor, UCLA’s Jordan Payton, Arizona State’s Jaelen Strong, Stanford’s Ty Montgomery – coming from the conference’s top teams, the name that sits atop that list doesn’t come from one of the Pac-12’s marquee programs and hasn’t yet become as much of a household name. Nelson Spruce. It’s a name that has been called by commentators more than any other receiver in the nation this year – as he leads the NCAA in receptions – and likely will be even more Saturday…
  • Men’s basketball looks to reconfigure team as season approaches

    Jordan Lee
    22 Oct 2014 | 7:24 am
    UCLA is well aware of who it doesn’t have. Twenty days out from men’s basketball’s opening game against Montana State on Nov. 14, the Bruins are focused on figuring out who they do have. Of eight rotational players from last year, the five that either graduated or got drafted played an average of more than 26 minutes per game, and with them more than 65 percent of the Bruins’ scoring and rebounding. But before UCLA determines just who will fill those particular voids, it must first find out who will play a role that won’t show up in any box score: the leader.

  • Proposition 46’s Medical Malpractice Cap Generates Big Spending

    Darleene Powells
    22 Oct 2014 | 1:05 pm
    SACRAMENTO (AP) — Bob Pack wanted to go after the HMO doctors for recklessly prescribing painkillers to a drug-abusing nanny who ran over his 10-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter as they were heading for ice cream one early fall evening in 2003. But under California’s 1970s-era medical malpractice law there was a $250,000 cap on pain and suffering. Instead of pursuing a case because of the cap, he settled so he could care for his wife, who lost the twins she was carrying in the crash. “It would have been too difficult to tackle a private trial,” he said.

  • California loses billions of gallons of water from underground pipes

    22 Oct 2014 | 10:31 am
    It turns out that the 20 million gallons of drinking water that flooded up from Sunset Boulevard and devastated the UCLA campus this drought-stricken summer was just a drop in the bucket. State authorities estimate that California's water distribution systems lose up to 228 billion gallons of potable water annually from leakage or broken underground pipes, the Los Angeles Daily News reports. How much water is that? It's enough to supply the entire city of L.A. all year long and then some. "There…

    22 Oct 2014 | 10:30 am
    A backlash by California parents has the University of California reconsidering its recently discovered cash cow: out-of-state and out-of-country students. Five years ago, the UC campuses began to aggressively recruit students nationwide and from around the globe and, as the Los Angeles Times reports, those out-of-staters brought in an additional $400 million or so just last year. In 2009, a year into the recession, funding for higher education came to a standstill. A commission on the future of…

    As companies nationwide begin to set up budgets for 2015, one line item seems to be a problem for some companies -- fines related to the Affordable Care Act. If you remember, companies that employ at least 100 people will start taking on fines in 2015. Now, it seems that companies are looking to insurance brokers-slash-law experts to find ways to avoid the fines and keep costs down. One popular option seems to be enrolling employees in Medicaid, and why not, since the federal and state governments…

    The Hollywood film and TV industry told taxpayers that $100 million a year in tax giveaways to keep the business from heading to other states wasn't enough. And so Sacramento responded by giving one of California's wealthiest industries nearly $1.6 billion of your money over five years, starting in 2015. This despite a finding by the state Legislative Analyst's Office that such "tax incentives" don't really benefit you, the people.

    22 Oct 2014 | 12:30 pm
    Every time the city hauls the owners of Eagle Rock Brewery into a public hearing, it costs the small business more than $5,000. And a hearing on November 6 will be the fourth of its kind in five years, says Eagle Rock co-founder Ting Su. “It’s really unfortunate,” says Su. “We’ve done nothing but good things for the community since we opened in 2009. And how does the city thanks us?” she asks. A bill for over $20,000 total in public hearings. Well before the brewery’s civic tab topped 20 large, it was 2009 and there wasn’t a single craft brewery open in the city of Los…

    You’ve seen the commercials. Matthew “just keep living” McConaughey quietly drives (or stops) a Lincoln 2015 MKC while waxing lyrical about bulls or the brand. Now the Oscar winner has this to say about the car ads he’s made for The Lincoln Motor Company, which are generating way more interest than the actor thought they would. “The point is, I wasn’t trying to be a car salesman. That’s why I like the ads. They’re sort of a knife through hot butter in the middle of all the noise. I’m happy with them.” No bull.

    22 Sep 2014 | 2:12 pm
    “Gotham” courtesy of Fox The much anticipated Fox TV series Gotham starts with a dark night in a big city. But there’s no sign of Batman anywhere. Although Batman in DC Comics and “The Dark Knight” movie franchise inspired this prequel story, Gotham is about the early days of Commissioner Gordon, when he was just a cop on the beat in a dangerously corrupt city. In the first episode of the epic new series, a child watches his parents gunned down in an alley, and Detective Gordon (Ben McKenzie) makes a vow to find the killers who made the little boy, Bruce Wayne, an orphan.

At this point, I’m predicting a bird lover’s World Series and here’s why: Baltimore versus Kansas City Both teams are coming off sweeps and both divisional series were closer than first appears.

    The playoffs in Major League Baseball have a tendency to be a cruel and fickle beast. You can blast through the regular season, crushing all opponents in your path and come October, all it takes is facing one team at the wrong time and it’s all over in a mere handful of games. The 2014 postseason has been no exception, with many of the projected favorites and higher seeds headed home and back to the drawing board earlier than expected. This year’s Angels team is the best representative of that cruelty. They not only won more games than any other team in baseball, but they did so…

While that sounds logical at first, nothing could be further from what you need to do if you want to turn technology from an expense to an investment. From our viewpoint, your technology should be providing you a return of at least 1000%, or a 1 to 10 multiple, if you are using it correctly.

    It is not something that we think about every day, but the fact is that carpenters are divided into several groups, based on their specialty and different fine skills. If we stop for a while and think about that profession, it is not strange that people working with wood need time to master all the craft skills and become all-round carpenters. Wood is one of the noblest materials in the world, but it also demands years of practice and improvement to become a fully skillful wood professional. This is definitely one of the most complex jobs in the field of crafts, since it requires physical…

Of course, do not try to pull in people who will not be interested in a spot or what your property offers because you will only drive away tenants. It goes without saying that you should make sure that your property is up to code and that you offer the best you can, otherwise your property will be vacant for a very long time.

Along these rhapsodic, elegiac and thrilled welcome-home lines I’m walking, here’s some songs to make you love your city again. Fall outta love?

  • Better than Gettypede…Running of the Clowns on 10/26

    6 Oct 2014 | 4:52 pm
    Sunday I met with the agents at GuerilLA Improv for what has the makings of an epic mission.  Its “La Carrera de los Payasos”, literally “Running of the Clowns” a parody of the annual Running of the Bulls in Spain. Cool. The mission dossier isn’t out yet. They do have a basic FB Page up now. I did walk the route and can tell you it took us less than 30 minutes with a lot of stops to discuss what would happen at each juncture. It will be short stints of running…something even my feeble old knees can handle. There is a dress code. If you are a…

    Pizza Rev is coming to K-town and its grand opening all proceeds go to helping the Los Angeles Animal Shelter, North Central Animal Shelter.  The LA Animal Shelter serves local homeless and abandoned pets.  The pizza deal is pretty sweet, you get a personal sized pizza and you pay what you want a the end for it (Suggested donation is $8).  I absolutely love a local business that branches out and gives back to the community with each new location. Adding to the fun is Social Media Sunday on October 12.  All you have to do is “like” or “follow” them on facebook,…
  • 4000 Miles premiere at Sierra Madre Playhouse was simply amazing

    27 Sep 2014 | 3:28 pm
    Last night was the opening of 4000 Miles a pulitzer nominated play at the Sierra Madre Playhouse.  The play was so well executed and performed you didn’t neet an intermission.  It ran a full Hour and Forty Five, but the time flew thanks the the simply amazing performances of Mimi Cozen as the grandmother Vera and Christian Prentice as the grandson Leo. I’ll try not to give too much of the story line away or drop a spoiler.  This is a drama with a lot of comedy included.  Leo is a young man on a literal and metaphoric journey.  Leo left Seattle on a bicycle with a friend who…

  • Eagle Rock Brewery Defends Its Right to Brew

    22 Oct 2014 | 12:30 pm
    Every time the city hauls the owners of Eagle Rock Brewery into a public hearing, it costs the small business more than $5,000. And a hearing on November 6 will be the fourth of its kind in five years, says Eagle Rock co-founder Ting Su. “It’s really unfortunate,” says Su. “We’ve done nothing but good things for the community since we opened in 2009. And how does the city thanks us?” she asks. A bill for over $20,000 total in public hearings. Well before the brewery’s civic tab topped 20 large, it was 2009 and there wasn’t a single craft brewery open in the city of Los…

    You’ve seen the commercials. Matthew “just keep living” McConaughey quietly drives (or stops) a Lincoln 2015 MKC while waxing lyrical about bulls or the brand. Now the Oscar winner has this to say about the car ads he’s made for The Lincoln Motor Company, which are generating way more interest than the actor thought they would. “The point is, I wasn’t trying to be a car salesman. That’s why I like the ads. They’re sort of a knife through hot butter in the middle of all the noise. I’m happy with them.” No bull.

  • As it Begged For Your Tax Dollars, Hollywood's TV Production Thrived

    22 Oct 2014 | 9:03 am
    The Hollywood film and TV industry told taxpayers that $100 million a year in tax giveaways to keep the business from heading to other states wasn't enough. And so Sacramento responded by giving one of California's wealthiest industries nearly $1.6 billion of your money over five years, starting in 2015. This despite a finding by the state Legislative Analyst's Office that such "tax incentives" don't really benefit you, the people. See also: $1.65 Billion Hollywood Tax Giveaway Approved, and It's a Shame And now we find out the truth: Hollywood hasn't been hurting much at all this year. ……

    La Jewish LawyerDiscovery, as the word implies, is a process of finding out things. In litigation, prior to trial, both sides engage in the “discovery process”. The rationale of having discovery is to allow both sides to ascertain the strengths and weaknesses of both their case and the other side(s) case. This will aid the parties in resolving their cases short of trial, if at all possible. With the current budget crisis in Los Angeles County, 56 courtrooms have been closed. The remaining courtrooms are dong a valiant job of continuing to get cases out to trial. However, delays are…

An insurance policy breaks down into four essential parts: 1) The declarations (who is being insured, what is being insured, the policy limits and the term of coverage); 2) the insuring agreement (what the obligations of the parties are to the contract e.g. cooperation with the insurer in claims investigation, prompt reporting of claims, etc); 3) Conditions of the contract (what each party must do in order to comply with the insurance contract, for example, the insurer will not…

    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”. The first question that most people ask is what is an adjuster? This is typically an employee of the insurance company whose job it is to investigate all aspects of the claim and attempt to resolve the claim as quickly as possible. The State of California through the Department of Insurance has standards called Fair Claims Practices Acts which mandates that insurance carriers promptly investigate claims.  Please call our…
