    When UCLA cross country entered this season, neither the men’s or women’s team was touted as a national contender. Now the men sit at No. 11 in the national rankings and the women have climbed into the top 30. Last weekend at the prestigious Wisconsin adidas Invitational, the men placed seventh while the women secured 20th, solidifying the Bruins’ status as a competitive program.

    Animal rights activists are offering money in exchange for information on student researchers involved in animal experiments at universities in the U.K. and the U.S., including UCLA. Though no incidents have been reported at UCLA so far, university police sent a cautionary email last month alerting faculty and students to keep an eye out for anyone who approaches them for information, said UCPD Lt. Mark Littlestone. “Having contrary viewpoints is all well and good, but these folks have agendas that can cause harm to research, especially for a research university like UCLA,”…

The net cost of education includes tuition, room and board and other education expenses. Grant and scholarships are also included in the cost.

Wes Craven’s visionary work of horror struck directly at one of the most potent aspects of the human experience — dreaming — and transmogrified it into deeply personal violence, which, when paired with sick humor, took up a…

    @ Hollywood Bowl by Falling James Even with the change of seasons (however subtle that might be in Southern California), the Hollywood Bowl hosts one more big outdoor spectacle as if it were still summer. The main appeal of We Can Survive — an annual benefit for the Young Survival Coalition and Living Beyond Breast Cancer — is that it brings together a bunch of pop’s biggest names, including several who could fill the Bowl on their own.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]

At their best, The Swell Season was a marriage of equal parts, yin and yang, with Czech singer-­pianist Markéta Irglová providing a sweetly soothing and natural contrast to Hansard’s sometimes strained and mannered vocals.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]

Bale didn’t have to do much to get the role of the Apple CEO, Sorkin tells Bloomberg Television: “We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale. He didn’t have to audition. Well, there was a meeting.” It isn’t the first time that Sorkin, who is adapting Walter Isaacson‘s 2011 biography Steve Jobs, has tackled tech culture. He won an Oscar a few years…

This is week two of training camp. The temperature is rising into the 90s, and the guys are not letting up.

    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.

Now the second round is over as the Division Series are done and only four teams remain in the hunt. Heading into the division series there was still a lot unknown about every team in the postseason. There was a lot of talk about who could make it and what they would do but in reality nobody ever knows. The bright lights of the postseason can send teams and players into a cave where they are rarely ever seen.

But the influence of relief pitching, both good and bad, has been particularly stark at times in the first round of the postseason. Detroit Tigers vs. Baltimore Orioles DET Starters: 20.1 IP, 10 ER, 4.43 ERA BAL Starters: 15.0 IP, 7 ER, 4.20 ERA DET Bullpen: 4.2 IP, 10 ER, 19.29 ERA BAL Bullpen: 12.0 IP, 3 ER, 2.25 ERA This was the series where the impact of the respective bullpens was most striking.

    If you ask the average real estate broker or agent what their technology investment is for 2015, they will tell you something like "as little as possible". 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…

    Renting a property Before renting out a property, it is important to establish who will be your target tenants and then to figure out whether it will be possible due to the neighborhood. 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.

  • L.A. Auto Show starts in 5 weeks….I’ve got a promo code

    14 Oct 2014 | 9:16 am
    Although I can’t help with a freebie…this promocode AUTOTRADER2014 good through 11/15 will get you discounted tickets good for admission 11/24-27. I’ll try not to throw too many superlatives at the event, but this year I think they are going to be able to outdo what they’ve done the last several years. On tap are 60 reveals for this show, 30 of which will be Global Reveals…or reveals for the first time anywhere for the global market.  Those are always pretty spectacular as the manufacturers really want to get our attention.

    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,…

    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…

    WHAT: Christian Bale has been cast as Steve Jobs in an upcoming biopic about the tech entrepreneur, which will be directed by Danny Boyle and written by Aaron Sorkin. Bale didn’t have to do much to get the role of the Apple CEO, Sorkin tells Bloomberg Television: “We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale. He didn’t have to audition. Well, there was a meeting.” It isn’t the first time that Sorkin, who is adapting Walter Isaacson‘s 2011 biography Steve Jobs, has tackled tech culture. He won an Oscar a few years…

    On a hot morning at Cal State San Bernardino, I am standing next to Courtney Morgan as he scans the field where 110 UCLA football players are being put through their paces by head coach Jim Mora and his assistants. This is week two of training camp. The temperature is rising into the 90s, and the guys are not letting up. With an eye both paternal and pragmatic, Morgan watches them, though his coaching follows a different path. He isn’t about grooming athletes to realize their visions of gridiron glory. As director of player development, his job, as he sees it, is almost the opposite: to…

    @ Cinefamily/Silent Movie Theatre by David Cotner While the Nightmare on Elm Street series went from “One, two, Freddy’s coming for you” to “Nine, 10, Robert Englund’s at a convention again,” it started out as a frightening look at small-town America, a place that was, in its way, just as ruined as the face of its serial-killer villain, Freddy Krueger. Wes Craven’s visionary work of horror struck directly at one of the most potent aspects of the human experience — dreaming — and transmogrified it into deeply personal violence, which, when paired with sick humor, took up a…

    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…
