    For the most part, the rivalry between UCLA and USC is one that is easily demarcated. Two teams separated by 12 miles of mutual animosity, loyalties easily identified against a backdrop of either Bruin blue or Trojan cardinal. Come Saturday though, coach Jim Mora said he hopes the game won’t be so black and white. Two of the nation’s most penalized teams square off as No. 9 UCLA (8-2, 5-2 Pac-12) hosts crosstown rival No. 19 USC (7-3, 6-2). And while each’s focus will be on the other, both are concerned about not letting themselves – or the referees – cost them a…

    None of the "Hunger Games" movies, not even the first one, has ended with any sense of finality. Sure, Katniss and Peeta may have outsmarted President Snow with a handful of toxic berries in the first film, ensuring they'd both survive the televised fight to the death, but the very ruse that saved them — that they were in love — meant that at the very least they'd be living a lie for the rest of their days. And Katniss may have escaped the arena, again, in "Catching Fire," only to discover she…

    There’s finally a glimmer of hope for fans of the glitzy zigzag bank building at Sunset and Crescent Heights. The mid century Lytton Savings (Now Chase) branch marked the Eastern end of the Sunset Strip, but now stands in the way of a major new hotel and retail project but an Environmental Impact Report released today calls out a way of saving architect Kurt Meyer’s 1959 work, restoring artwork at the site (The Family by David Green), and even adding a little green space by reworking the traffic island that was home to the 1960s teen club Pandora’s Box.

    Seven years after he was voted into office, President Obama took on Thursday what his administration described as “an important step to fix our broken immigration system”—executive actions that address the status of many undocumented migrants, how U.S. borders are secured, and how authorities will prioritize whom to deport from the United States moving forward. Taking executive action won’t go down as one of Obama’s historic acts—in fact, every Democratic and Republican president since Eisenhower has used that official power to enact immigration reforms. But that doesn’t mean…

    BRAD AUERBACH
    18 Nov 2014 | 9:36 pm
    After a few decades in the PC world, I made the shift to the world Steve Jobs built. I am now an Apple kinda guy, at least as far as laptops go. Future installments will cover my migration from Android to Apple, but for now I have been looking at the laptop shift to Apple. My MacBook Air is sleek and quick, but I admit there are some right click opportunities that I miss. Cutting and pasting is far more clunky in a one click mouse world; I expect in time I will discover an easier way than going back to the keyboard to complete the task. A few items that have made my Apple transition easier…

    It is likely that everyone goes through at least one Disney phase. It is inescapable that as a kid you would have succumbed to Disney’s pull. When you become a parent, all of that is revisited. For me, our teenage kids long ago fell away from Disney, so there has not been much Disney in our world. Nonetheless, the Disney magic was sufficiently evolved at the La Jolla Playhouse to intrigue me and the packed house. Drawing more from the Victor Hugo novel than the Disney film (itself derived from Hugo’s work), the U.S. premiere musical is darker and richer than the 1996 animated film from…

    How We Got To Now: Six Innovations That Made the Modern World, by Steven Johnson (Riverhead Books) Johnson presently tops my list of most intriguing non-fiction writers. He first entered my radar screen years ago when I picked up his Everything Bad is Good For You: How Today’s Popular Culture Is Actually Making Us Smarter. I wanted to read it to debunk his theory, but his astute observations turned my views 180 degrees. More recently, I was floored by the insights on practically every page of his last book Where Good Ideas Come From. Johnson’s current book expands on some of the themes of…

    The study of physics has had a fascinating history in the arts. The latest foray explores the life of the greatest living physicist. Director James Marsh has built his current film around Jane Hawking’s book Travelling To Infinity: My Life With Stephen. Marsh’s Oscar-winning documentary Man On Wire was stunning, and he brings the same innovation and command to his new film. Eddie Redmayne plays the physicist Stephen Hawking and Felicity Jones his college girlfriend, wife and mother of their three kids.

If you’ll remember back to Back to the Future II, Doc travels back from the future to pick up Marty so they can go back to the future to prevent Marty’s kids from destroying the entire McFly family. While waiting around in 2015, Marty picks up a copy of Grays Sports Almanac just to “place a couple bets” and basically completely alter the future he and Doc have traveled to 2015 to correct.

    People often ask me how I get around so much with an infant. It’s pretty easy: my daughter is 5 months old and can’t say “please stop dragging me to everything, Mom.” Since her birth in June, we’ve been in perpetual motion, stopping only long enough to nurse and fight naps. There’s been a diaper change or two in there somewhere. We’ve been to 3 weddings, 2 baby showers, a wedding shower, and a family reunion, visited folks in 4 states and the District of Columbia, saw the world’s largest rubber ducky in Long Beach, watched Shakespeare in Griffith Park, perused art at the…

Mermaids. Circus performers. Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. Yes, they were our live entertainment. Nearly shat myself when they were announced to be our entertainment for the evening. Tons of fun, she hasn’t lost her edge. Totally fun night.

    David Markland

    For years, blogging.la has served as a clearinghouse for photos of rude parkers, most often committing the sin of parking across the line and taking up two precious parking spots. Unfortunately, beyond posting the photo along with some snark and overhyped indignation, there was never the full satisfaction of knowing whether or not the “parking turd”* ever saw them publicly shamed. Now all that is about to change. Yesterday, Dennis Romero at LA Weekly reported about PL8CHAT, a new app that allows users to text drivers via their license plate numbers. We immediately thought of the…

The mid century Lytton Savings (Now Chase) branch marked the Eastern end of the Sunset Strip, but now stands in the way of a major new hotel and retail project but an Environmental Impact Report released today calls out a way of saving architect Kurt Meyer’s 1959 work, restoring artwork at the site (The Family by David Green), and even adding a little green space by reworking the traffic island that was home to the 1960s teen club Pandora’s Box.

    Shayna Rose Arnold
    21 Nov 2014 | 12:12 pm
    Seven years after he was voted into office, President Obama took on Thursday what his administration described as “an important step to fix our broken immigration system”—executive actions that address the status of many undocumented migrants, how U.S. borders are secured, and how authorities will prioritize whom to deport from the United States moving forward. Taking executive action won’t go down as one of Obama’s historic acts—in fact, every Democratic and Republican president since Eisenhower has used that official power to enact immigration reforms.

  • Our Homeless Veterans Deserve a Home

    Staci Pedersen
    11 Nov 2014 | 11:27 am
    In today’s highly partisan national discourse, there is one idea everyone can agree on: taking care of our nation’s veterans.  Facing a frustrating, unending series of foreign entanglements, how we care for our warriors when they return has reached the mission critical stage.  We simply cannot continue to ignore those who give their all to keep us safe. While the methodology of the various homeless surveys are by no means perfect, the results can still break your heart.  Veterans comprise around 34 percent of the general U.S. population yet veterans are grossly over-represented in our…

    Original story on St. Louis Post-Dispatch: “Billy is a happily married family man, a veteran who works hard, goes to church and pays his taxes. He volunteers regularly at a homeless shelter showing others there is hope. Billy is also a former alcoholic who lived homeless on the streets of Los Angeles for a year. Billy is a proud graduate of the Los Angeles Mission Fresh Start program. Billy is like so many others who successfully turned homelessness into hope and a home. Billy was hungry and came to the Mission for meals. He came back to get a shower, new socks and some clean clothes.

Because many of these individuals have no “home” to return to they end up hitting the streets of Skid Row.  Some looking for help – some looking for trouble.  This trend was noted by LAHSA in the 2013 homeless count earlier this year, but it is in full force now.

      The Los Angeles Mission thanks the staff and volunteers of LAHSA for their tireless efforts in identifying those experiencing homelessness. This data is vital to those of us who are seeking to serve this population on a daily basis with meals, shelter and referral services. What has been documented by this count is what was felt intensely at the street level and in our contact with those seeking assistance.  There are more people in need of services. There are fewer jobs for those seeking entry level employment.  And, in spite of our efforts to reduce chronic homelessness, there is a…
