    28 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
    CC learned how to ride a bike without training wheels!I wasn't planning to write this post, but I wasn't quite expecting today's amazing event to happen at all. Basically, CC learned to ride a bike without training wheels in about 5 minutes, and the technique that helped her learn was so simple.Let's back up a bit. I remember the '80s, when I was little and my dad taught me to ride a two-wheeler after months and months on training wheels. I got up the courage (well, both of us did, actually) to try out the big bike, and my dad pushed the back of my seat as I wobbled down our neighborhood…

    About 80 pro-Palestine protesters rallied at the Federal Building in Westwood on Sunday afternoon, calling for an end to violence in the Gaza Strip.

  • Second Take: ‘Boyhood’ defines millennial generation’s adolescent experience

    Aalhad Patankar
    28 Jul 2014 | 1:57 pm
    I think in our hypermodern yet retro-obsessed world, the phrase “I wish I was born in another era” gets thrown around a lot, mostly as an open rejection of popular culture. I mean why shouldn’t it? The ’60s had Andy Warhol and Bob Dylan. The ’80s had the Smiths. Artists who grab onto and capture, on their canvas, a fleeting period of time, place and emotion that would have otherwise floated away into obscurity. But we can finally throw away the silly “You know you’re a ’90s kid if …” BuzzFeed quizzes because millennials finally have…

    You've seen repo men and women on reality television, and even though the scenarios sometimes seem set up, you get the picture: This is a dangerous job. One L.A.-area repo man was murdered yesterday after he hooked up a car and drove away in his tow truck, only to be followed by people in "multiple vehicles," the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said in a statement. A shots fired call at Rosecrans and Atlantic avenues in Compton brought out the cops ...   ... shortly before 4:10 a.m., according to the department. The driver had "lawfully repossessed a car in Compton and was possibly…

    Outlander’s Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan), photo courtesy of STARZ Outlander, the much anticipated new series on the Starz network, is a breathtaking love story based on the ultra-popular book series by Diana Gabaldon. Of course romantic souls have embraced the novels, but who would have ever thought that the crazy fans who attend Comic-Con would also find it appealing. But indeed they have, as was demonstrated at a special mini-preview of Outlander for an enthusiastic audience in San Diego last week. Maybe it’s the time-traveling fantasy part of the storytelling…

     ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Grant Green hit a bases-loaded single off Fernando Rodney with two out in the ninth inning after Albert Pujols tied the score with an RBI double, and the Angels pulled out a 6-5 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday. Rodney (1-4), the former Angels’ closer, replaced Joe Beimel with one out in the eighth and retired the next two batters. He entered the ninth attempting to complete a five-out save and record the 200th of his career, but the Angels rallied for the major league-leading 30th come-from-behind victory.

For a successful trade show presentation need to state a clear goal and make a deal with yourself and other company CEOs about your mutual desires. For example, if you are going to take part in a show that is going to take place in a week or two, you should never allow that your staff is picked at the spur of the moment. You need experienced HR managers and experts to choose the staff for your stand. Even if you are not an HR expert, if you are a good manager, you will know how to recruit experienced…

  • How to Ride a Bike in 5 Minutes

    28 Jul 2014 | 6:00 am
    CC learned how to ride a bike without training wheels!I wasn't planning to write this post, but I wasn't quite expecting today's amazing event to happen at all. Basically, CC learned to ride a bike without training wheels in about 5 minutes, and the technique that helped her learn was so simple.Let's back up a bit. I remember the '80s, when I was little and my dad taught me to ride a two-wheeler after months and months on training wheels. I got up the courage (well, both of us did, actually) to try out the big bike, and my dad pushed the back of my seat as I wobbled down our neighborhood…

  • 'Planes: Fire and Rescue' Review

    "I. Am. Amazed."Those were the first three words out of CC's mouth after we caught a screening of Walt Disney Studios' "Planes: Fire & Rescue" earlier this week.Both of us, in fact, were more than pleasantly surprised by the sequel to last year's "Planes" that hits theaters July 18.Not only did writer Jeffrey M. Howard kick the story up a notch (actually, more than a notch), but the jokes were funnier and the graphics were especially gorgeous -- hats off to whoever decided to set this film in a fictional Yosemite National Park!

  • A Mom's Take on 'Boyhood' -- Review

    9 Jul 2014 | 11:39 pm
    Ellar Coltrane was filmed over 12 years in Richard Linklater's "Boyhood."As a mother, watching your children grow day in and day out is a strange blessing. What's amazing is being able to note when your child says a new word or develops a new skill. What's bittersweet is watching them pass into a new phase -- as Will is doing now, learning new words and understanding more every day.Sometimes you just want to stop time, press pause and savor each inarticulate yet joyful moment. (Sometimes, admittedly, you'd like to see bedtime come a little quicker.)Imagine if all of that were in fast…
