It turns out that naturalization, the process of going from immigrant to citizen, puts cash in our pockets, concludes a new report from the Center for Popular Democracy, the National Partnership for New Americans, and the Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration at USC Dornsife.

  • Gordo the Dog Steals L.A.'s Heart

    Dennis Romero
    18 Sep 2014 | 7:03 am
    Gordo, a fluffy white Maltese dog, stole L.A.'s heart over night after he was hit by a van being chased by police in South Los Angeles. The canine was receiving emergency care this morning. Cops started chasing a white Chevrolet Astrovan about 8 p.m. near LAX, apparently after discovering that the vehicle was allegedly stolen, according to reports. The pursuit led to South Los Angeles, often focusing in the area of Manchester Avenue, and appeared to go in circles at times as a suspect sped with no lights, drove on sidewalks, made U-turns, and engaged in other apparently dangerous driving: ……

    In the future, pot smokers who get the munchies will have an entire automated support system designed to learn their pattern of consumption and predict their every need. Their iWatch will sense a change in their body temperature; their Google Glass will recognize that they’re watching an old DVD of Kids in the Hall, and an Amazon drone will automatically head towards their location, spilling not a drop of Mountain Dew as it touches down on their doorstop.  However until that future food-topia is realized, the stoners of Los Angeles have to rely on a friendly Lyft driver, an X-Pen…

    18 Sep 2014 | 8:07 am
    If you’ve ever wanted to rub elbows with Paul Giamatti and Ice Cube Jr., here’s your shot. There’s a biopic about the seminal South L.A. rap group in the works. It’s called Straight Outta Compton: The N.W.A. Story and it stars Jason Mitchell as Eazy-E, Marcus Callender as Dr. Dre, and Ice Cube’s son, O’Shea Jackson, as his father. Giamatti signed on last month to play Jerry Heller, the group’s manager. Heller founded  Ruthless Records but ended up on the outs with Dre and Cube, who claimed that he cheated them out of royalties. The film is…

  • Want it Now: The High Neck Crop Top

    Jacqueline Valle
    17 Sep 2014 | 5:46 pm
    There’s something about a high-neck crop top—its simple, its chic, and it’s a sophisticated way to show off those hard-worked abs without copping a Britney circa 1994. We know what you’re thinking: A sleeveless turtleneck? But we’re telling you, day or night, summer or fall, the high-neck crop top is a transitional style that can be pulled off pretty much only in Los Angeles (thanks, weather). I shopped from Beverly Hills to Larchmont Village to find the best options available now and my favorite is the Whitney Eve top from LF Boutique below; it’s casual but crisp. Once you’ve…

    Even though the temperatures don’t show any sign of abating, summer is winding down.  And that means the string of great shows at the Hollywood Bowl is nearing an end for this season. But there is one great bill this Sunday that is suitably eclectic and promises to be very satisfying. Andrew Bird has released eleven albums since his 1997 debut. His expertise on stringed instruments caught the eye of various film and TV producers, for whom he has provided some evocative scores. His 2012 release was a companion set of albums, and we should expect much on Sunday from Hands of Glory – the…

    8 Sep 2014 | 5:24 pm
    On his second night at the esteemed venue, Costello again cleverly opened his set with the lyrics “Oh I just don’t know where to begin.” Although he was a bit wobbly with that song (“Accidents Will Happen”) and the follow up, he soon hit his stride. He introduced the second song (“Veronica”) as being co-written by a chap who played the same venue in 1964. The received wisdom was that Costello played acerbic Lennon to McCartney’s sweetness during their period of collaboration, but “Veronica” strikes the right melancholia about Costello’s grandmother losing her memory.

As an utterly disappointing season begins to wind down, the Rangers are looking for any signs of hope heading into 2015 and beyond.

Derek Holland made his third start of the year Friday opposite Atlanta lefty Alex Wood, and both pitchers allowed one run over seven quality innings of work. Adrian…

    I was always struggling with cleaning nasty stains set in deep into the fabric of my rugs. Since I have a dog, I always need to pay close attention at what he is doing around the house. He is a sweet 1-year-old puppy now, but back then, he was a true disaster. He was always making messes and was up to something bad, such as eating his pet food on the sofa in the living room or doing his job on my precious carpet. Dogs are just like this when they are still small and there is no reason to be mad at your puppy, but it could really make your days awful and manage to ruin anything in the house.

    I rarely put up a notice of an event that costs money to attend or this far in advance.  But this show is big, beyond the normal car show we see here in L.A.  Its the Palos Verdes Concours d’Elegance coming on September 14 at the Trump Mational Golf Course in Palos Verdes.  This isn’t a cheap event, but has unique, rare and expensive automobiles.  Think Cord, Auburn, Dusenberg…not Galaxy, Impala or other plebeian rides. Among the cars there will be a full size Hot Wheels Darth Vader car that was made to look like the toy car.  It was unveiled at Comic con this summer…

    25 Aug 2014 | 4:32 pm
    Confused?  You should be, its New Yorkese for “6 rooms, river view” for a rent controlled apartment in the city.  The play is much more than that, its a look at the generation gap between the baby boomers and the generation that immediately preceeded them.  It about the shift in attitude of the 30 somethings in 1972 surrounded by the new ideas of the teenagers behind them and how they were raised.  Its questioning moral values and right and wrong. The play itself is well written and I’ll try not to give any spoilers, the play focuses on 3 couples, two who actually…

    If you’ve ever wanted to rub elbows with Paul Giamatti and Ice Cube Jr., here’s your shot. There’s a biopic about the seminal South L.A. rap group in the works. It’s called Straight Outta Compton: The N.W.A. Story and it stars Jason Mitchell as Eazy-E, Marcus Callender as Dr. Dre, and Ice Cube’s son, O’Shea Jackson, as his father. Giamatti signed on last month to play Jerry Heller, the group’s manager. Heller founded  Ruthless Records but ended up on the outs with Dre and Cube, who claimed that he cheated them out of royalties. The film is…

  • Want it Now: The High Neck Crop Top

    17 Sep 2014 | 5:46 pm
    There’s something about a high-neck crop top—its simple, its chic, and it’s a sophisticated way to show off those hard-worked abs without copping a Britney circa 1994. We know what you’re thinking: A sleeveless turtleneck? But we’re telling you, day or night, summer or fall, the high-neck crop top is a transitional style that can be pulled off pretty much only in Los Angeles (thanks, weather). I shopped from Beverly Hills to Larchmont Village to find the best options available now and my favorite is the Whitney Eve top from LF Boutique below; it’s casual but crisp. Once you’ve…

    Gordo, a fluffy white Maltese dog, stole L.A.'s heart over night after he was hit by a van being chased by police in South Los Angeles. The canine was receiving emergency care this morning. Cops started chasing a white Chevrolet Astrovan about 8 p.m. near LAX, apparently after discovering that the vehicle was allegedly stolen, according to reports. The pursuit led to South Los Angeles, often focusing in the area of Manchester Avenue, and appeared to go in circles at times as a suspect sped with no lights, drove on sidewalks, made U-turns, and engaged in other apparently dangerous driving: ……

    11 Sep 2014 | 12:48 pm
    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…
