7 Top Summer Blueberry Dishes and Drinks

Eat Drink Lucky | July 29, 2015 | Taste
We put them on waffles, in salads, in cocktails, in smoothies and in ice cream -- and we're big fans of the toss-them-into-our-mouths technique.

Golden Age of Bronze

Edward Goldman | July 28, 2015 | Arts
When a museum exhibition is referred to as a blockbuster, one expects its major draw to be something along the lines of Mona Lisa, or Girl with a Pearl Earring. However, the exhibition that just opened at The Getty Center has nothing of the sort, and still, it is a bona fide blockbuster.

Safe Havens, Not Sidewalks

Mike Bonin | July 28, 2015 | Los Angeles
This will be challenging. It will cost money and political capital - neither of which is unlimited, and both of which are needed to build permanent supportive housing. But we need more of both.

Enough People in the World Make You Feel Like Sh*t. Don't Help Them.

Nina Bargiel | July 28, 2015 | Entertainment
By the time I turned 30, I had written 17 episodes of an iconic television show ("Lizzie McGuire"), been nominated for two Emmys, had an agent, a manager and a size-6 body that I could cram into all sorts of fun outfits. By the time I turned 35, I was near-broke.

5 Reasons Why You're Never Really Alone When You Travel Solo

Alyssa Ramos | July 28, 2015 | Travel
Unless you're purposely trying to be alone, or on a deserted island, the chances of you actually being alone when you travel solo are quite skinny.

'Listen to Me Marlon' Reveals Our Greatest Actor In His Own Words

John Turturro | July 28, 2015 | Entertainment
There is only one Marlon Brando. No actor, despite the countless who have been compared to him, has had the masculinity and femininity, the gentleness, the sudden violence, the surprise, the gracefulness, the sexuality and the innate poetry that made up this complicated soul.

Worlds Apart on Kathryn Steinle: When Political Opportunism Reigns Supreme

John Mirisch | July 28, 2015 | Los Angeles
Instead of pandering and trying to connect the murder to a lack of "comprehensive immigration reform," it would be fitting if Ms. Harris would accept the simple truth that Lopez-Sanchez should not have been in the US -- and then try to figure out solutions to avoid any more senseless murders.

The 8 Top Southern Dishes

Garden & Gun | July 27, 2015 | Taste
Making these choices wasn't easy. I left a lot of gravy and a couple of racks of ribs on the cutting room floor. Think of them as edible mileposts on a turnpike to tomorrowland.

Look at All the Hispanics on Los Angeles' "Most Wanted" List!

Jason Salzman | July 27, 2015 | Los Angeles
It's widely known that Donald Trump's angry comments about Mexican immigrants being rapists and horrible people generally are false. Recent immigrants, including undocumented ones, are actually factually less likely to commit crimes than native-born Americans. And this comports with what you we see in front of us in...

Shakespeare Wild and Free

Philip David Morton | July 24, 2015 | Los Angeles
Romeo and Juliet is the most famous love story every told. How do you make that new? To take material so well known and keep it fresh is a tribute not only to how well the festival directors know the plays, but also to how fearless their staging and inventions are.

From LA to NY: Performing on the 'Today' Show

Jackson Guthy | July 23, 2015 | Entertainment
The band and I arrived in New York late on a Sunday evening. The best part of the whole flight is that moment when the plane starts descending and the lights of the city fill up the windows. It's the moment I look forward to the second the plane takes off from LA.

Statewide Beach Shower Shutdown Impacts Millions While Wasting Water

Jonathan Greenberg | July 24, 2015 | Los Angeles
Without a public hearing, and without any research that this measure would actually save water, the Parks agency has deceptively used the drought as an excuse to shut down an essential public water service that was used by 15 million park visitors last year (that's more than one-sixth of all park visits).

Community Activists Crush Conservative Politicians With LA County $15 Minimum Wage Victory

Peter Dreier | July 23, 2015 | Politics
Starting next year, the Altadena Walmart, which opened in March 2013, will be paying all of its employees at least $10.50 an hour and will be paying $15 an hour by 2020. If you think that the Waltons -- the heirs to Walmart founder Sam Walton -- suddenly developed a social conscience, think again.

Fight for 15 Keeps on Stepping

Robert L. Borosage | July 23, 2015 | Politics
The Fight for 15 movement is gaining momentum. It has won victories in Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, San Francisco, Seattle and SeaTac. Yesterday, a New York State Wage Board formally recommended a $15.00 minimum wage for the fast food industry in New York. Governor Cuomo could move that to into law after reviewing it. The University of California just announced it would raise its minimum wage for several thousand workers to $15.00. The $15.00 minimum is likely headed to a referendum vote in the District of Columbia next year. Pressure is now building on the president to act. He deserves credit for issuing orders raising the minimum wage of contract employees to $10.10, and requiring contractors to obey various workplace laws. Now federal employees are striking for $15.00 and a union.

Mad Men Has A Decent Shot At A Record 5th Best Drama Emmy, But Should It Win?

William Bradley | July 22, 2015 | Entertainment
It would make perfect sense for Mad Men to win its record-setting fifth Best Drama Emmy. And it's high time for Jon Hamm, after eight nominations for his masterful performance as the iconic Don Draper, to finally take the Best Actor prize.

One Can't Have Too Many Picassos, But Many Jeff Koons Is a Problem

Edward Goldman | July 22, 2015 | Arts
Its remodeling was much too expensive and painfully protracted -- but putting all that aside, the museum's final presentation of its vast collection of Picasso's art is simply delightful.

Carrying the Torch for Inclusion, After the Games Are Over

Torrie Dunlap | July 22, 2015 | Los Angeles
The Special Olympics World Games will, for a short period of time, make disability visible. But we should not be persuaded that this is what inclusion looks like, and should continue to fight for greater participation by students with disabilities in our schools, communities, and even our sports leagues.
