Ankore: Tearing It Down and Putting It Up

Lisa Derrick | December 23, 2014 | Latino Voices
Ankore roams the streets at night, looking for a wall to paint. During the day, he's a soft spoken, earnest guy from Central America who works in a factory for minimum wage; when the sun sets, he finds a wall and begins to passionately paint.

Everything's Coming Together While Everything Falls Apart

Rebecca Solnit | December 24, 2014 | Green
Americans are skilled at that combination of complacency and despair that assumes things cannot change and that we, the people, do not have the power to change them. Yet you have to be abysmally ignorant of history, as well as of current events, not to see that our country and our world have always been changing, are in the midst of great and terrible changes, and are occasionally changed through the power of the popular will and idealistic movements.

"Yet" Is Here

Jill Robinson | December 22, 2014 | Los Angeles
Kim Kardashian, Senator Dianne Feinstein, and Olivia Benson, fresh from her latest SVU, and Valerie Woods were sitting around my table the other night, drinking water from Baccarat Crystal goblets, eating Bristol Farms candied orange chicken bits, roasted vegetables and red rice with dates, blueberries, and pomegranate seeds. The water...

It's not just about the specific projects, but also about having a strong voice in the ongoing operations of this multi-billion dollar agency.

Not Racist, II

Vicky Shorr | December 22, 2014 | Los Angeles
It was criminal that personal emails were released, but since that cat was let out of the bag, and we got a look at it, kicking and spitting, it's fair enough, I think, to suggest that Sony open the back door and put it out. It certainly doesn't belong at breakfast with the President.

Malaika Bobino | December 22, 2014 | Sports
Despite being down the Kings rallied back to end their five-game losing skid when they defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 108-101. Sacramento began the game on a 15-7 run, and collectively they displayed good ball movement and played great defense.

I Tried to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Here's What Happened.

The Cut | December 22, 2014 | Women
Well, the acting-insane part I knew I could handle. It was the "ten days" that were problematic for me and -- let's be real -- the structural integrity of this movie. Quickly repulsing somebody would be a snap, but it'd also make for a short flick and a shorter article.

"Into The Woods" - A Marvelous Miracle of a Musical Movie!

Jay Weston | December 23, 2014 | Los Angeles
Meryl Streep is a truly amazing woman.There she was on the Academy stage after last night's screening of the new Disney musical film, INTO THE WOODS, and the 65-year old actress was looking neat and nifty, speaking wittily, after the audience had spent the previous two hours watching her play the unkempt Witch in this wondrous film.

'Post Mortem Presents: A Very Victorian Christmas,' Post Mortem Movement Theatre, Long Beach, Calif.

James Scarborough | December 20, 2014 | Arts
Conceived, directed and choreographed by Andrea Luna and Angela Lopez, it's a riot of song, a rhapsody of dance and movement. In short, it's a scream. It recovers and re-enacts the delightfully sinister Victorian winter solstice tradition.

Jerry Was Nearly Eaten by a Coyote. How Was Your Week?

Ana Garcia | December 19, 2014 | Los Angeles
It's like I live in the third world, but it's the Hollywood Hills. My little Jerry, all four pounds of him, were in the mouth of a coyote so big, my son said the beast was six-feet-tall when it stood on its hind legs to jump over our gate.

Hollywood Christmas

Jim Burklo | December 19, 2014 | Los Angeles
It's the last place on Planet Earth we thought we'd ever be. Neither my wife Roberta nor myself has any particular interest in celebrities, nor in celebrity itself. Our house is situated below the Hollywood sign, and on my way to and from the subway station, I'm sure I pass...

Ada Ferrer | December 19, 2014 | Latino Voices
As a historian of Cuba, as a Cuban-American, as an American citizen, I applaud President Obama's change of course on Cuba. Surprisingly, so do my 93 and 88-year old Republican parents in Miami.

Arianna Huffington | December 18, 2014 | Media
Today, as The Colbert Report airs its final episode, I'm looking back with gratitude on nine years of great television. I loved being on the show several times, discussing everything from my Greek accent to self-sabotage to the obnoxious roommate living in my head. Here are some of my favorite moments on The Colbert Report over the years.
