    Last time in this space, I wrote to begin a civic discussion over what it takes to be an Angeleno. This time, I’m writing to settle a discussion. Someone who lives in Los Angeles, city or county, is an Angeleno. Not an Angelino. Every few years, this topic pops up like dormant insects persistently rising from their hibernation. And so it’s time again to bring out the bug spray and kill off “Angelino,” and even worse contortions of the simple and elegant word for who we are. What, you say? Live and let live? “Los Angelino” or “Angelean” or “Los Angelean” — whatever? Nope no non nein não nyet nahi không voch, and ixnay. If you call yourself an “Angelino,” then you must live in a place called “Los Angelis,” wherever that is. The name of the city and county is Los Angeles. Calling an Angeleno an Angelino is like calling a New Yorker a “New Yirker,” a denizen of some imaginary burg called New Yirk. The word for a resident of a place is “demonym,” and I can...
    The Elton John-scored musical adaptation of The Devil Wears Prada was eviscerated by critics after its opening performance in at the Nederlander Theatre in Chicago on Sunday. The Devil Wears Prada, The Musical, is currently on its world premiere before a scheduled 2023 Broadway debut, but its best reviews say it is far from ready for the NYC stage. The worst reviews have critics calling it an irredeemable fiasco, citing boring music, zero style, and flat characters. 'Call the Fashion Police,' wrote critic Johnny Oleksinski in The New York Post, 'The alarmingly un-fun and sluggish show with a score by Elton John and Shaina Taub is a dud about duds, and the worst screen-to-stage move in recent memory.' 'Every song is lousy, and there is nothing here worth fixing,' he added.  The show was adapted from Lauren Weisberger's 2003 novel about less-than-stylish hopeful journalist Andy Sachs serving as assistant to major New York City fashion magazine editor Miranda Priestly - well understood to be a stand-in for Anna Wintour - which itself was later turned into a the beloved film starring...
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about another raft of stories quoting Democratic sources and speculating about who will run on the Democratic presidential ticket in 2024. At Monday’s White House briefing, Psaki answered questions on a variety of topics, including the next election. CBS News correspondent Ed O’Keefe noted that “there was another round of stories over the weekend about the political fate of the President and the Vice President and who might run in 2024. And it quotes a lot of other Democrats or people who work for them.” “What is the White House’s message to those Democrats?” O’Keefe asked. “The White House’s message is: We’re focused right now on what the American people elected the President to do … just over a year ago, which is to get COVID under control, to put people back to work, and to help give people some breathing room, and we hope other people keep their focus on that as well,” Psaki replied. “Should they knock it off? Is that speculation helpful to you?” O’Keefe asked. “The President has...

View the original article to see embedded media.Lakers star LeBron James weighed in on the video of Kyle Rittenhouse taking the stand during his murder trial Wednesday afternoon. James took to Twitter to comment on Rittenhouse's first public comments on what happened in downtown Kenosha, Wis., on Aug. 25, 2020. James said that Rittenhouse must have eaten some Lemonheads—a popular sour candy—before taking the stand. He also noted that he didn't see any tears coming out of Rittenhouse's eyes. Rittenhouse is on trial for killing two people and injuring a third during protests following the shooting of a Black man, Jacob Blake, by a white police officer last summer.  Rittenhouse took the stand to explain what led to his shooting the first victim, Joseph Rosenbaum. He traveled from his home in Antioch, Ill., stating he wanted to help protect property from people protesting after the fatal shooting.  The judge eventually sent the trial...
    IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. (AP) — Some residents in a northern Michigan community are complaining about noise during summer nights. Rowdy teens? No. Adults playing pickleball. Iron Mountain in the Upper Peninsula won’t restrict pickleball hours at four courts. City Manager Jordan Stanchina had suggested ending games at 6 p.m., but 20 players attended a recent council meeting to object, The Daily News reported. Roxanne Hudson, who lives next to the courts, said she and her husband “just want to move.” Noise from the paddles and plastic balls goes on “hour after hour” and “just drives you nuts,” Hudson told the council. Pickleball is played on courts that resemble tennis courts but are much smaller. That’s part of the appeal. “We’ll try to mitigate (the noise) somehow,” Mayor Dale Alessandrini said. Scott McLure, speaking on behalf of players, said they might try quieter paddles. A 6 p.m. curfew isn’t favored because it wouldn’t give people time to play after work. “Every recreational activity has noise,” council member Bill Revord said. Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press.

    On Monday, during an appearance on FNC’s “Hannity,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) criticized Donald Trump’s impeachment, which is set to be underway on Tuesday. Graham lamented having to participate in the proceedings and warned impeachment would have a lasting impact on the country. “I got to listen to this crap,” Graham said. “So, I hope by Sunday or Monday, the trial will be over. Here’s what I can tell you — if the House managers want to call one witness, the defense is going to call all the people you named and then some. To my colleagues tomorrow, there are a hundred of us, what we do today is going to make history of the time America exists. What Democrats have done is basically declared war on the presidency itself. The impeachment in House took place without a hearing, without one witness being called, and without a lawyer for the president of the United States.” “You can’t get a traffic ticket based on the producers they used to impeach President Trump,” he continued. “And we’re also impeaching a man who’s...
    (CNN Business)It took less than six months for Instagram's Snapchat clone to catch up to its rival's audience size and be credited with stunting Snapchat's user growth just as the company prepared to make its Wall Street debut in 2017.But Instagram and its parent company Facebook (FB) are having a harder time doing the same to TikTok.Instagram launched Reels, a short-form video product, in the United States on August 5, days after former President Donald Trump announced plans to ban Chinese-owned TikTok in the country, sending panicked users scrambling to find alternatives. Two of TikToks competitors are mergingSix months later, it isn't taking off in the way the company had hoped. TikTok has outlasted the Trump administration and continues to be popular, with roughly 100 million users in the US, a significant impact on American pop culture and a loyal mix of influencers who don't seem to be going anywhere. Unlike with Stories at this point in its history, Instagram has not released any metrics about Reels so far."TikTok is light years ahead of Reels," said Evan Asano, CEO...
    Savannah Rychcik January 14, 2021 0 Comments White House Trade Advisor Peter Navarro is sending a message to House Democrats after they impeached President Donald Trump for a second time. “What happened yesterday was a travesty. The Democratic party did violence to this country by attacking a president who I believe was legally elected on Nov. 3. If the election were held today, he’d be elected again, and if he runs in 2024, he will be elected then,” Navarro said during an appearance on “Fox Business.” He added, “That’s what the Democrats fear, and I’ve never been more pissed off in my life at this place, and I think there’s 74 million Americans out there who voted for President Trump who feel exactly the same way. So, I would say to these people on Capitol hill, ‘Knock it off, stop this, let the man leave peacefully with his dignity.'” Watch the video below: While perpetuating baseless claims that Trump won the election, WH Trade Adviser Peter Navarro says Dems “did violence” by impeaching Trump:“Knock it off, stop this, let...
    Underground pandemic parties are popping up in New York City as young people cast off their masks and their regard for social distancing to escape the confines of coronavirus lockdown.   The parties are drawing hundreds of people to bars and nightclubs across the Big Apple every weekend, including the The Williamsburg Hotel, Common Ground, Her Name Was Carmen and the Ravel Hotel, Gothamist reported Tuesday.   Photos and videos posted on social media showed crowds of unmasked revelers at several events dancing up against each other as if the coronavirus threat didn't exist. Word of the elicit parties is reportedly being spread through private WhatsApp groups and text chains where promoters caution guests against publicizing them.   It's believed that the growing popularity of pandemic parties is partly to blame for the fact that the rate of infection among people aged 20 to 29 has more than doubled over the past month.   Governor Andrew Cuomo tweeted a link to the Gothamist story about the parties on Wednesday, writing: 'Knock. It. Off. Now.'  Underground pandemic parties are popping up in New York...
    The Lincoln Project is defending a multimillion-dollar campaign to deliver Senate control to the Democrats, arguing that rebuilding the Republican Party is impossible without ditching President Trump’s “enablers” in Congress. Installing a Democratic majority in the Senate, especially with Joe Biden in the White House, could lead to elimination of the legislative filibuster, facilitating enactment of a litany of long-sought-after liberal priorities. But GOP insiders and former Republicans behind the Lincoln Project, a Never Trump group, say the rewards outweigh the risks, insisting that cleansing “Trumpism” from the party requires an unambiguous message that any affiliation with the president is a losing proposition. “We’ve always been clear about our mission: Removing Trump, Trumpism and his enablers,” Lincoln Project spokesman Keith Edwards said Monday. “These people have violated every letter of their oaths, every iota of their consciences.” But other Never Trump Republicans are critical of this effort. They describe the Lincoln Project’s strategy as a “burned to the ground” approach that appears disinterested in the Republican Party’s future. And they admonish the group for being cavalier about the...
