It's been exactly nine years since the glorious day when Michael Govan, the newly appointed Director of Los Angeles County Museum of Art, greeted a larger than usual crowd at a press opening in March of 2006.
In light of the stark contrast between the East and West Coasts, would it surprise anyone if Californians called on Jim Inhofe to throw some of his snowballs in their direction?

So we have yet another crisis in a little-known place to worry about. The difference is that, with this one, it's not hard at all to see how it could trigger a regional conflagration.

Gregg Jacobs is an insomnia specialist at the Sleep Disorders Center at the UMass Memorial Medical Center and the author of Say Good Night to Insomnia. In answer to my questions, he shared his insights on how human sleep patterns have changed over time, healthier and more effective alternatives to sleeping pills, and how to reverse our worst sleep habits and behaviors.
This past weekend the Architecture + Design Museum launched an exhibition, Beyond Graffiti II, across the street from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Some of the artists in the exhibition included Axis, Atlas, Chaz Bojorquez, Aise Born, and Phantom.

On the day he would have turned 88, members of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors will enter an epic battle by farm workers seeking implementation of their union contract against a giant Central Valley grower -- reminiscent of 1960s farm labor fights.
"This play is so...Disney..." my friend Steve Cabral turned and said to me as we attended opening night as the musical theatre season kicked off at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, CA.
While we support a constitutional amendment to restore the authority of Congress, state and local governments to regulate campaign spending, it's a long-term fight. But there is another way dilute big money's influence.
Five teams competed in Orange County this past weekend. Particularly notable in this Southern California version of a San Francisco hackathon was a focus on product viability. Teams were here to build a product to sell, not merely to produce an idea without a market.
I've photographed, surveyed, and filmed nearly a thousand art exhibitions in the past few years. Never until now, has there been an exhibition more interesting than Karl Haendel's installation at Night Gallery called "Unwinding Unboxing, Unbending Uncocking."
Over the five years that I was incarcerated, I felt confused and often dehumanized. After dropping out of my gang, life became a daily struggle to survive. In no way was my incarceration an environment of rehabilitation. In fact, some even called our facility "gladiator school," because of the harsh treatments we faced daily.
Doing business around Los Angeles can be a pleasure or a pain, often pending the traffic. I've been making notes of the places where I can enjoy an amazing meal while waiting out the 405. Lately, I've found that I'm not "stuck in South Bay," I'm just "hanging out in Hermosa" -- at least until the freeways clear.
Nathan Lewis, whose work is now on view in a solo exhibition in Stamford, Connecticut, is a painter with a strong feeling for the cycles of history, but no desire to reach back towards a "Golden Age."
As a teacher, I can't do my job effectively if my students' critical mental health needs are not met. The 2008 National Survey of Children's Exposure to Violence shows that children are more likely than adults to be exposed to violence and crime. How can we possibly expect youth who are facing debilitating trauma to catch up with their healthier peers without adequate care?
Every day, men and women are released from prisons and jails across the U.S. after taking this same journey. Most incarcerated settings do not provide programs that teach relevant job skills for reentry to society. As a result, recidivism -- the rate at which people return to incarceration -- is enormous. Society blames these individuals for their failure. Had I not been fortunate enough to be a founding member of a program called The Last Mile, I too could have ended up back in prison.

After winning a landslide re-election as governor of California by a whopping 20 points, the 41-year old Brown set out to take down the president he'd beaten in a string of late presidential primaries in 1976.

You might be thinking, "Amelia, this isn't going to go anywhere. It's California! It's not like it's going to become law." And you are right. But it doesn't take away from the fact that there are thousands of people in this country just like Mr. McLaughlin, who think a bullet in his head is exactly what my son deserves.
I thought more about the word. It's everywhere. Often not even beeped out of television shows, "bitch" is in rap songs and pop songs and on t-shirts. "It's Britney, bitch." "I'm in Miami, bitch."
As women's history month comes to an end, I'd like to honor a courageous immigrant mother who leads by example.
Given that the contaminated aquifers scandal broke just before news that California may have just one year of water left in its existing reservoirs, Gov. Brown's silence on the call for an emergency moratorium on fracking is especially alarming.
