  • Obamacare at the Supreme Court: Justices again divided over landmark health law

    4 Mar 2015 | 3:34 pm
    Washington (CNN) – The future of health care in America is on the table — and in serious jeopardy — Wednesday morning in the Supreme Court. After more than an hour of arguments, the Supreme Court seemed divided in a case concerning what Congress meant in one very specific four-word clause of the Affordable Care Act with respect to who is eligible for subsidies provided by the federal government to help people buy health insurance. If the Court ultimately rules against the Obama administration, more than 5 million individuals will no longer be eligible for the subsidies, shaking…

    WASHINGTON — The Justice Department formally closed its investigation of Ferguson Police officer Darren Wilson, declining to bring criminal charges for the killing of Michael Brown. In a report released Wednesday, prosecutors said that “Wilson’s actions do not constitute prosecutable violations” of federal civil rights law. “There is no evidence upon which prosecutors can rely to disprove Wilson’s stated subjective belief that he feared for his safety,” the Justice Department report said. The Justice Department also issued a 100-page report that it said found…
  • Homeless man shot by LAPD: Who was ‘Africa’?

    LOS ANGELES — No one knew him by his real name. But on the harsh streets of Skid Row that became his home, he was known as Africa. Surveillance footage, police and homeless community activists paint wildly different pictures of the man — one who could be violent, benevolent, troubled and altruistic. Africa was shot and killed by Los Angeles police Sunday after he scuffled with officers. The shooting, caught on video, has renewed accusations of police brutality because it showed him already on the ground. Police say he tried to reach for an officer’s gun. The Los Angeles County…

In a dramatic address to the U.S. Congress at what he said was a “fateful” crossroads of history, Netanyahu openly sided with President Barack Obama’s Republican critics and sparked an immediate and furious reaction from the White House, as relations between…

    It was supposed to be Norman Powell’s night.

    UCLA men’s basketball is well on its way to securing a first-round bye in next week’s conference tournament after a red-hot first half.

The duo totaled 22 points and 10 rebounds, while sophomore guard Bryce Alford pitched in 15 points of his own. Both teams attacked inside early, as the first four baskets of the contest…

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration advised hospitals Wednesday to continue using Olympus Corp. duodenoscopes, even though they were linked to the recent superbug outbreak at UCLA and are not currently FDA-approved for sale. Without the device, hospitals would not be able to meet the clinical demand for 500,000 annual U.S. endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography procedures – commonly known as ERCP – which save hundreds of thousands of lives, the FDA said in a statement. The recommendations come after several healthcare providers asked the FDA whether they should stop performing…

As the current CEO of GEMS, Lloyd has helped foster the largest service provider for commercially sexually exploited children in the nation, weaving hope with empowerment to girls and young women moving forward.

As the city grew during the 1860s, this robust hill was a place where people could hike and stand high above L.A. while they enjoyed a rather grand view below. Though the area seemed spectacular, there were two problems with the idea of setting down real estate roots on the incline. First, the grade was too steep for teams of horses (even the favored Shire dray animals who hauled the heavy materials used to build the city). Second, there was nary a drop of water. But…

    Umami Restaurant Group founder Adam Fleischman’s launch of ContinuumPhysics.com has raised eyebrows in the food world. The quirky website, which has fonts that are much more medieval than modern, will aim to teach people about physics and how to use science to help run businesses–yes, including restaurants–better. It might, especially at this early stage, seem unclear where Fleischman is going with this, but this site has probably been spinning in his mind for a while. In Lesley Barger Suter’s 2012 Los Angeles magazine profile of Fleischman, the fast-casual pioneer…

  • Bob Seger – San Diego 2/25/15

    BRAD AUERBACH
    26 Feb 2015 | 6:25 pm
    Seger’s decades long appeal is built on the fact he is one of us. In contrast, David Bowie is not one of us, and his appeal is of a different sort. Seger came roaring out of the heartland in the 60s and he has been reflecting on that legacy ever since. Whether exploring teenage mysteries in the back seat of a Chevy or the heartache of a gone girlfriend (‘wish I didn’t know now what I didn’t know then’), Seger has been leaning against the wind for decades. Against The Wind (photo by Brad Auerbach) His fans celebrate the Rocky-like underdog nature of Seger. There were more than a few…

  • The Wrecking Crew

    17 Feb 2015 | 3:36 pm
    We are in the middle of an embarrassment of riches when it comes to music documentaries. In the fine tradition of shining the spotlight on the unsung heroes of the music business (think “Twenty Feet From Stardom”), a new documentary reveals the history and personalities of the musicians behind some of the most classic rock tracks to appear at the top of the charts and across the airwaves. The Wrecking Crew was a group of studio musicians who were the backbone of an almost unimaginable number of songs. No one can decide exactly how many members passed through the Wrecking Crew, but their…
  • Don Giovanni – San Diego Opera: Far More Than Fifty Shades

    BRAD AUERBACH
    15 Feb 2015 | 4:11 pm
    Don Giovanni – San Diego Opera Occasionally the worlds of opera and film overlap, and such is the case this weekend when both Mozart’s Don Giovanni and Fifty Shades of Grey open. The former will certainly continue to withstand the test of time (it was first performed in 1787); although the latter is breaking box office records, it will eventually fade after its trilogy is played out. Both productions raise the issue of whether the titular character is a seducer or a rapist. In the case of Mozart’s production, Ildebrando D’Arcangelo plays the title role with aplomb. D’Arcangelo has…

Little did I know that when my wife Susan and I drove over there this morning and set out with our faithful — and needless to say well-behaved and leashed-up — border collie mix Ranger to explore that roughly 3.3-mile loop for the first time, we would be greeted by this sign at the north gate and again at the east gate: Being that…

    Our city’s version of the Big Dig, the I-405 Sepulveda Pass Improvements Project, is a seemingly unending construction project that almost all Angelenos grumble over. Officially over last year, finishing work continues—Metro’s Twitter devoted to the project remains very active—on the $1 billion+ effort to install a carpool lane and build new bridges and overpasses. LA Weekly just ran a story saying the whole arduous effort was a giant, politically-motivated waste that did nothing to improve drive times.

    In the earliest photos of Los Angeles, a cliff that looks like the end of the earth looms forebodingly above the Old Pueblo. As the city grew during the 1860s, this robust hill was a place where people could hike and stand high above L.A. while they enjoyed a rather grand view below. Though the area seemed spectacular, there were two problems with the idea of setting down real estate roots on the incline. First, the grade was too steep for teams of horses (even the favored Shire dray animals who hauled the heavy materials used to build the city). Second, there was nary a drop of water. But…

There never was a better time to hawk food on four wheels, but there never was a harder time either. With competition fierce, hundreds of food trucks fought for turf, and regulations for the mobile kitchens were nonexistent or haphazardly enforced, making it extremely tough to earn a living.

I was assured by a chat rep named Samuel that if I were to return my memory via the Crucial website, that I would receive the correct memory when it was received. So I boxed up my old, incorrect memory sticks, put them in the mail, waited about a month, received two new memory sticks (maybe), installed them in my Macbook, got…

Last night, I was finally able to find a legit embed of this new Rihanna/Kanye/Paul McCartney song that the blogosphere has been raving about, and it made pretty good cooking music.If you’re not familiar with Blue Apron, they basically send you a few meals worth of ingredients along with step by step instructions on how to put it all together. I’d say 75% of the time the meal is delicious. This week, my wife made buffalo wings, some awesome chili and a pizza with a couple eggs on it. I know, that’s what I said, but it…

    Well, that was a crazy weekend. My home town football team won a big game in Arizona and I finally managed to take my wife to Zankou Chicken. I would be at Zankou a lot more often if their West LA location didn’t have that stressful parking lot. Instead, I prefer to park three blocks away next to some professional wrestler guy watering the sidewalk.I’d been hyping the chicken at Zankou since I went there one time in 2010 with a couple coworkers. While our Zankou lunch was still delicious, (let’s smear the garlic butter on EVERYTHING) I may have made the mistake of…

    La Jewish LawyerAnother “hot button issue” in the present political climate and in the upcoming presidential campaign is immigration reform. President Obama is playing a high stakes game of Russian roulette with the security of the Untied States hanging in the balance. The Republicans are threatening to withhold funding for the Department of Homeland Security if a bill is not passed effectively killing the presidents executive order stopping the deportation of 5 million illegal aliens. A Federal Judge in Texas (a conservative venue) has agreed with the republicans and has ruled…

    La Jewish LawyerIn civil cases, the plaintiff (or cross-complainant) is seeking recovery of damages in most instances. What types of damages exist? In a personal injury case, there are two types of damages that flow from the car accident itself. These damages are called general damages (e.g. property damage, medical expenses). There is another type of damage typically available in a car accident, so called “special damages” (e.g. pain and suffering). Insurance companies look at car accidents through a jaundiced eye in most instances. The first thing they will focus on is…

    La Jewish LawyerOne of the most controversial issues has been taken up by the United States. The issue is gay marriage. The court will decide this term if “gay marriage” is to be recognized nationally or not. The parameters of this struggle are seen in the need for certainty of marriage in all states versus the religious right and their interpretation of the Bible (marriage is between a man and a woman). Gay Marriage Yes or no?                       This country has many sharp divides. Among these divides is this issue. What…

    La Jewish LawyerWe are all familiar with the old saying “Justice delayed, is justice denied”. Litigation in the State of California continues to increase. Costs of litigation are also increasing. To start a lawsuit costs $435 in the State of California, County of Los Angeles for an “unlimited” civil case (seeking damages in excess of $25,000). Once the lawsuit is filed, it must be served by a disinterested person which is another cost which varies on who does it. The reason for this requirement is to eliminate parties allegedly serving documents on other parties and…

    La Jewish LawyerHealth Insurance, Nudity, Driver’s Licenses and More…                   1. Get Health Insurance! Many people remember the rush to get health insurance at the end of 2013 and into 2014 and the problems in using the new website.  Unfortunately, this past year the news did not feel it was necessary to remind people that they still must have health insurance in 2015.  The Open Enrollment Deadline for Covered California ended on December 15, 2014, but that does not mean that there is not still time for a person to get health…
