Once coronavirus in the air, it can go pretty darn far. The beach may be shut down, and the signs tell you don’t walk on the beach, don’t swim, don’t surf.. but nobody tells you: Don’t even breathe.
San Onofre remains home to 3.5 million pounds of incredibly dangerous spent fuel and nuclear waste. Residents in this densely populated area are praying the transfer of radioactive material is performed perfectly, because as one said, “If there’s a Chernobyl here, we don’t get a second chance.”
A cellphone recording that captured the March 1, 2015, shooting, which took place on a Sunday morning in broad daylight, was viewed millions of times around the world. Keunang, a native of Cameroon with a history of mental illness, was shot five times on the sidewalk outside his tent in the middle of skid row.
With homelessness rising and shelter beds scarce, healthcare facilities are accused of abandoning people in Skid Row following treatment.
It’s one thing when thousands of homeless people line up in tents and sleep on cardboard boxes in skid row in downtown Los Angeles. It’s something entirely different when the homeless are shipped off to wealthy communities in ritzy Orange County.
For many Los Angeles politicians, getting into the hottest show in town was much easier. Instead of making them line up outside the theater, the Pantages came to them, offering each one a coveted pair of tickets to opening night. The theater is owned by the same company that heavily lobbied the city three years ago to keep a lucrative contract after a city commission recommended handing it to rival company Live Nation.
The nuclear reactors in San Onofre were permanently shut down in 2013 following a catastrophic malfunction. What to do with its 3.6 million pounds of highly radioactive waste remains an epic problem, and the proposed solution is to bury the waste on the beach in cheap, thin containers. This is a disaster waiting to happen.
The Chargers’ decision to join the Rams at a splashy new stadium in Inglewood has at least one builder even more pumped up about the city’s prospects.
The promise of pro football in Inglewood, still three years away, has already given a lift to real estate developer Sandy Sigal, who is spending $15 million to renovate a 1960s-era shopping center there.
