Amid concerns about displacement that at one point roped it into an ongoing battle over gentrification, a venerable Eastside art institution got closer to securing its future through a planned purchase of its longtime headquarters in Boyle Heights.
The Los Angeles City Council voted Tuesday to approve an $825,000 funding commitment proposed by Councilman Jose Huizar to help Self Help Graphics and Art purchase the property along East 1st Street.
(You may wonder whether the idea of cutting off evil influences emanating from the past is a specifically German theme.) Mr. Odar and Ms. Friese seem confident that viewers will sign on — their finale takes a wild turn that dares Netflix not to give them a second season.
At times the series, created by Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese, seems to have been constructed with the aid of spreadsheets, but there’s no denying its ingenuity.
Mr. Ponte left his post in late June, two months after the Department of Investigation issued a scathing report detailing how he drove a city car 18,500 miles in 2016 on trips to and from Maine, where he owned a home.
The investigation found improper car use by 20 other correction employees, including Mr. Ponte’s top deputy, Cynthia Brann, who was recently named by Mayor Bill de Blasio as the new correction commissioner.
The Museum of Failure, a traveling pop-culture show presenting commercial products and services that rank as epic fails — beef lasagna frozen dinner from toothpaste maker Colgate, anyone?
With 17,000 visitors in about three months in Helsingborg, Sweden, and with plans to tour internationally, isn’t there an inherent contradiction in the Museum of Failure?. “It’s hilarious to think of the Museum of Failure as a success,” West said.
They had flown, driven, pleaded with their parents and assembled posses for the inaugural Teen Vogue Summit: a two-day event, costing from $299-$549 per ticket.
Under its editor Elaine Welteroth and digital editorial director Phillip Picardi, Teen Vogue added the political issues of today to coverage of party frocks and makeup tips, and became a glossy guidebook for readers disenfranchised by the current presidential administration.
By Christmas Eve, we couldn’t take any more and (in what I still consider one of our greatest financial parenting fails), we caved.
Now that I have four kids of my own—kids whose Christmas wish lists have included everything from designer jeans and fancy electronics to a Tempur-Pedic mattress topper—I can see the wisdom behind Bible Gammy’s gift-giving strategy. For one thing, all of those verses she asked her grandkids to memorize—promises about God’s wisdom, his love, and his grace—brought perspective and context to my growing up years.
The Management Top 250 ranking is based on a holistic measure of corporate “effectiveness” that was developed by the Drucker Institute, a part of Claremont Graduate University in Claremont, Calif. “Effectiveness” is defined as “doing the right things well.”
The Management Top 250 includes U.S. companies, as well as companies that have principal executive offices outside the U.S. but are listed in the Fortune 500 or have stock that is a component of the S&P 500.
Cinemark Holdings Inc., the nation’s third-largest theater chain, has launched a subscription program that gives customers discounts on tickets and concessions, in the latest effort to boost attendance.
The Cinemark deal comes just months after MoviePass sparked a backlash from cinema giant AMC Entertainment when it reduced its monthly rate to $9.95 this summer. Box office revenues this year are down 4% so far, according to ComScore, thanks to movies that flopped.
Before Jeju Noodle Bar came along in September, avid noodle watchers could have believed that the New York City ramen scene had reached a point of, if not saturation, at least diminishing returns.
This is Mr. Kim’s most obvious homage to Korean instant ramens, many of which are more fiery than the typical Japanese product. This broth, though, is spicy, and the gochujang spooned over the seared pork belly slab on top makes it even more so.
In 2015, a community policing initiative — one credited with helping curb violence in some of L.A.’s toughest housing projects — scored the Los Angeles Police Department high-level praise.
This year, L.A. officials applied for more than $3 million in federal funding to help bring the same program to Harvard Park, a South L.A. neighborhood scarred by violence. The U.S. Department of Justice hasn’t said why the LAPD didn’t receive any of the $98 million in grants recently awarded to scores of law enforcement agencies across the nation.
An academic journal has published an article by a Ph.D. candidate at Pennsylvania State University that argues eating meat maintains a society where “hegemonic masculinity” is the norm. Anne DeLessio-Parson, whose article was published in Gender, Place and Culture: A Journal of Feminist Geography, based her research on Argentina’s “meat-centric” culture.
“My daughters the carnivores are going to be really bummed that I don't want to further hegemonic masculinity so they have to eat salad while I finish my steak,” tweeted Frank Miller of Wisconsin.
Only 560 people have journeyed to space, but the rise of commercial space tourism will, someday soon, radically increase that number.
Surely space tourism, once experienced on a mass scale, will affect humanity — and not just because it will open up new vacation opportunities, but because it could reshape us socially, culturally, emotionally. My Zero G experience gave me a window into how this might unfold: how space travel could prove consequential in ways that are difficult to imagine from this point in history.
A wind-whipped wildfire exploded early Tuesday in Southern California, forcing more than 27,000 people to evacuate and causing at least one death.
The National Weather Service said winds of 43 mph with gusts over 60 mph have been reported in the area, and are expected to continue throughout the day.
Some 27,000 residents were forced to flee their homes in the middle of the night as a fast-moving wildfire ripped through southern California.
Several thousand homes are under mandatory evacuation in the cities of Ventura and Santa Paula, some 70 miles (115 km) north of Los Angeles. Some 27,000 residents were forced to flee their homes in the middle of the night as a fast-moving wildfire ripped through southern California.
Ryan Shazier, a linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers, injured his back making a tackle against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday, spurring initial fears that he could be paralyzed after he appeared to be limited in his movements from the waist down.
Named to the Pro Bowl last year, Shazier was Pittsburgh’s leader in tackles coming into the game and had recorded three interceptions. A first-round draft pick out of Ohio State in 2014, Shazier has been one of the key players for a Pittsburgh defense that has helped the team to a 10-2 record, tied for the best in the N.F.L.
