Controversial calls happen in college football, but outcomes should stand

5 months agoHealth : LA Times: Health

No one ever said college football was fair. That’s not why we watch games on Saturday afternoons. We’re not looking for thoughtful deliberation or due process — we want to see two teams go at it and, in the end, we want a winner. Which is precisely why the powers-that-be should not go back and...

Often mistaken for others, Rams GM Les Snead is trying to build relocated Rams into contenders

5 months agoHealth : LA Times: Health

It usually happens at an airport gate. Les Snead will notice people whispering, and one will ask, “Are you Matthew McConaughey?” A fan was once so convinced that Snead was former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre that he insisted on an autograph. Snead finally obliged by signing, “Brett...

Rams will log a lot of air miles and they'll need to take flight on field too

5 months agoHealth : LA Times: Health

Since the NFL approved their return to Los Angeles in January the Rams have been on the move, sometimes dizzyingly so. A team meeting in Manhattan Beach. Off-season workouts in Oxnard. Training camp in Orange County and now a temporary home in Thousand Oaks. Forget playbooks loaded on those team-issued...

Likeability aside, Jeff Fisher has to prove to Rams fans that he's a keeper

5 months agoHealth : LA Times: Health

Jeff Fisher would be a cool uncle. With shorts, flip-flops, and funky glasses hanging from his neck on a string, his presence is chill. Yet with a bit of gravel in the voice and salt in the pepper hair, his aura is wise. Fisher is the older relative you hang with at the family picnic, the one who...

Why do people drink so much tomato juice on airplanes?

5 months agoHealth : LA Times: Health

The other day, I found a reason (as one does) to consult “Dreams: Hidden Meanings and Secrets,” a guide to the unconscious mind first published in the 1940s. “To drink tomato juice,” reads one entry, “predicts travel by airplane.” Sure, that makes sense. Many of us associate tomato juice with airplanes....

Fifteen years after Sept. 11, Americans are afraid but don't want it to cloud their judgment

5 months agoHealth : LA Times: Health

Fifteen years ago, in the first fearful days after Sept. 11, 2001, the verdict was almost universal: “This changes everything.”  Only it didn’t. The American way of life hardly changed at all.  The U.S. economy recovered within months of the attack. (The crash of 2008 was caused by bankers, not...

California's notoriously liberal '9th Circus' court of appeals is growing more centrist

5 months agoHealth : LA Times: Health

The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, based in San Francisco, has long been the court conservatives love to hate. Rush Limbaugh calls it the “Ninth Circus.” Right-wing bloggers refer to the “Nutty Ninth.” There’s even an illustrated children’s book titled “Help! Mom! The Ninth Circuit Nabbed the...

Learning takes more than teaching. It requires mentoring, training, parents and more

5 months agoHealth : LA Times: Health

To the editor: Karin Klein’s opinion piece suggests mentoring to improve teaching skills. A good idea, but it doesn't address the core of the problem. First, define “teacher... ’’ Time is up! What’s the right answer? People talk of “teaching” as if means “magically instill knowledge.” It doesn't...

Show us the reasons for Voter ID

5 months agoHealth : LA Times: Health

To the editor: Zoltan Hajnal fails to address for me the reason why voter ID laws suppress minority votes. ( “Strict voter ID laws hurt minorities,” Opinion, Sept. 8) It is absurd that in a society where you can't cash a check, board an airplane and often need to validate your identity to use a...

Their young world crumbled. Now the children of 9/11 look back

5 months agoHealth : LA Times: Health

The children of 9/11 are growing up. Fifteen years after that cataclysmic day in 2001, the infants of the time — or those still then in their mothers’ wombs — are high school age. Then-toddlers are nearing or even starting college. The tweens of 2001 are young adults, and their elder siblings are...

A board director who acts unilaterally may not be protected by the business judgment rule

5 months agoHealth : LA Times: Health

Question:  I am one of five board directors at our homeowners association. The problem is that one director thinks he knows it all and goes it alone. He decides what invoices to pay. He decides what contracts we need and signs them. He decides which security guard company, attorney and manager...

As Americans cast ballots this fall, they might spare a thought for Spaniards preparing to do the same — for the third time in a year, with little hope of actually electing a government.  For nearly nine months, Spain has had only a caretaker, lame-duck government.
