Mariah Carey will return to Vegas for handful of Christmastime concerts

Grammy-winning singer Mariah Carey finished her Las Vegas residency last week. But she’ll be back. “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” the name of Carey’s 1994 holiday hit, is also the name of the show to be staged Dec. 14, 16, 17, 20 and 22 in the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. That’s where the pop...

From 'Game of Thrones' to 'Harry Potter,' projection mapping lights up L.A.

At an after-party for the red carpet premiere of the seventh season of “Game of Thrones” at Walt Disney Concert Hall, partygoers watched as Westeros came to life on the building before them. An icy visage of the Night King loomed over the affair while dragons soared across the hall’s sweeping arched...

If the city wants the faith community to help the homeless, it should make sure it's not standing in the way

It makes sense that L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti would enlist religious leaders in a citywide effort to fight homelessness. At a time when officials are gearing up to build thousands of units of housing for homeless people, the city could use the moral suasion of pastors, rabbis, imams and other faith...

Today: Let’s Make a Healthcare Deal! But What’s Behind Door No. 2?

The Senate is headed for a healthcare vote that’s been shrouded in mystery; Jared Kushner says he didn’t collude with Russia; and Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions is in the hot seat. I'm Davan Maharaj, editor-in-chief of the Los Angeles Times. Here are some story lines I don't want you to miss today. TOP...

It's time for farmers markets to declare plastic bags out of season

Among the blazing orange carrots, ripe red strawberries and deep green kale leaves that line the farmers market stalls is one incongruous product that never goes out of season: disposable white plastic bags. I am an avid farmers-market shopper, which means more than half of my food comes from the...

Keep political campaigns out of the churches

As part of his all-too-successful courtship of religious conservatives, Donald Trump promised during his presidential campaign to “get rid of” the Johnson Amendment, a 1954 law that prohibits churches and other tax-exempt nonprofit organizations from endorsing candidates for public office. In May,...

Lessons from the GOP's mostly dead healthcare plan

The GOP healthcare plan is not dead. It is, in the words of Miracle Max from “Princess Bride,” “only mostly dead.” Hill-watchers say the Republicans so badly need to pass something that they might just surprise everyone and pass … something today. Maybe. But whatever the Senate passes will not...

Clean electric buses need to be powered by clean renewable energy

To the editor: I would suggest these clean buses come with the caveat that any electricity used will be produced by zero-emissions production, for example solar or wind. We will have then achieved true “zero emissions.” (Re “$138 million to buy L.A.’s first electric buses,” July 22) Our city may...

Single payer can't happen in California. At least, not right away

Given the dismal state of healthcare reform in Washington, liberal Californians have rallied around the idea that the state should establish a single-payer program. Although in the future such a system would be workable and desirable, the reality is that at the moment a single-payer bill cannot...

What military recruiters aren't telling women: You'll face disproportionate health risks

Recently, 18 brave women graduated from the U.S. Army Infantry School, pioneers headed for fully gender-integrated “ground close-combat” units. Women have long served valiantly and effectively in almost every military role, but now they are tackling extremely physical combat jobs that, until recently,...

Duck and cover 2.0: How North Korea is prompting new efforts to prepare for a nuclear attack

Fleets of big black trucks, harbor boats and aircraft, equipped with radiation sensors and operated by specially trained law enforcement teams, are ready to swing into action in Los Angeles for a catastrophe that nobody even wants to think about: a North Korean nuclear attack. American cities have...

From the Archives: Fire backdraft

The firemen were unhurt in $30,000 blaze. Staff photographer Boris Yaro had prepared for this fire backdraft. Yaro writes: The history here is the smoke. About 8 months before I had seen the same type of smoke belching out of a window. When I went to make the photo, the cord from my flash unit...

Man wanted to help ISIS and spread terror in Bay Area, indictment alleges

He spoke of giving backpacks full of explosives to homeless people, federal authorities said. He talked about lacing cocaine with rat poison to distribute at nightclubs and setting fires to hills near Berkeley. For months, undercover federal agents interacted with Amer Sinan Alhaggagi — swapping...

Detroit judge blocks deportation of more than 1,400 Iraqi nationals

A federal judge in Detroit has temporarily halted the deportations of more than 1,400 Iraqi immigrants, ruling that they deserve to have their cases play out in court because of the risk that they could be targeted for persecution in Iraq. In a ruling Monday, U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith...
