Lakers Lost Luster

Leigh Steinberg | July 6, 2015 | Sports
How could the Lakers have fallen so far? They are selling a tradition and heritage from the past that is largely irrelevant to younger players. San Antonio has been a dynasty in recent years, Miami preceded them.

The Journey Begins

Caitlyn Jenner | July 6, 2015 | Gay Voices
Seeing how my new friends have overcome their adversities is such an inspiration. They are so well-adjusted and smart. I'll be sharing their stories here in the coming weeks and I can't wait for you to get to know them. They are just like you and me.

Full-Spectrum Yoga in LA

Philip Goldberg | July 6, 2015 | Los Angeles
This is a much-needed antidote to the troublesome tendency to reduce Yoga to the status of a fitness trend. It is much much more than that, and one hopes that those who appreciate India's great gift to the world will keep its deeper dimensions in the forefront of public awareness.

Is Silicon Valley Charting the Future While All the World's Pols Play Small Ball?

William Bradley | July 3, 2015 | Politics
As we contemplate our present and future around the 239th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, are we being myopic? Is our politics focused mainly on marginalia while real change, big change, is being prepped elsewhere?

A Photo Essay From L.A.'s Mansionization Front Lines

Jonathan Kim | July 2, 2015 | Los Angeles
"Mansionization" is the name given to the increasingly common practice of tearing down a smaller house and building a much larger, more expensive one on the same lot, often to the detriment of next-door neighbors who suddenly find themselves deprived of sun, views, and privacy by the new mansion now looming over them.

Inside Out -- Pixar Animation-Disney Movie Is Astonishing and Confusing!

Jay Weston | July 1, 2015 | Los Angeles
No question this film will win the Best Animated Feature Oscar come next March, though knowing the age level of my fellow Academy members I doubt it will join Doctor's "UP" or "Toy Story 3" on the short list of Best Feature Film nominations.

Kayaking on the L.A. River, I'll Be Back

Joel Epstein | June 30, 2015 | Los Angeles
With the state suffering through the most severe drought on record and everyone from Central Valley farmers to L.A. homeowners cutting back on their water usage, the image of kayaking on the Los Angeles River may seem counterintuitive.

What Really Happens at Chaz Dean's Salon

Jimmy Fowlie | June 30, 2015 | Gay Voices
As a Los Angeles resident I had seen numerous billboards featuring a curious man inviting me to his salon. His name: Chaz Dean. But who is this mysterious man? From the billboards he looked like a combination of a sophisticated lesbian and the wisest lioness in Africa.

Not Just Comic Genius: Noah Baron and Ross Willett, the Comedy Duo Taking Over the Internet

Kay Smythe | June 30, 2015 | Comedy
Modern comedy is a tough business, especially in Los Angeles. This is a city where people take themselves very seriously. Almost too seriously.

Name That Train

Joel Epstein | June 29, 2015 | Los Angeles
Asking residents to improve our city by volunteering at a local school, participating in street tree plantings or logging on to MY LA 311 to report illegal dumping makes L.A. a better place to live. And sometimes, a challenge can be just plain fun.

My Way or the Highway

Joseph Grant | June 29, 2015 | Los Angeles
One can get anywhere in Los Angeles in 20 minutes. This is as true a statement as any that can be said about the City of Angels. Any amendment to this rule will dramatically hinder one's progress. The 20-minute rule comes with a caveat or two.
