New York’s Uncertain Future

Today’s press conference with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was one of the most buoyant and optimistic since the grim story of the epidemic started almost three months ago in early March. Cuomo was joined, virtually, by New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio, equally buoyant and with genuinely good news: In a week New York City should be ready for what the state defines as “phase one” of reopening. In practice, this remains quite limited: non-essential construction and manufacturing can restart. Most ret...

Watch two rehabbed sea lion pups return to the ocean in Palos Verdes

Two sea lion pups were overjoyed recently when their caretakers at the Marine Mammal Care Center set them free in the ocean near Terranea Resort. As soon as the doors to their cages opened, the pups skipped over the rocky shoreline of Rancho Palos Verdes straight to the water’s edge — then frolicked about in the surf for a moment before swimming out past the breakers, according to a video the resort posted on YouTube this week. Two sea lion pups newly released by Marine Mammal Care Center...

How Did This Get Made: A Conversation With Al Ruddy, Producer of ‘The Godfather,’ ‘Megaforce,’ and ‘Ladybugs’

This week, the gang at How Did This Get Made? covered Megaforce (1982), an over-the-top action film directed by famed stuntman, Hal Needham.  The first person I got in contact with was Megaforce ’s producer, Al Ruddy. But unfortunately, he replied, “I’m participating in a German-produced documentary on the film currently and with my other projects, I simply have no spare time.” I thanked him for the quick reply and then assumed we’d never cross paths again. But less than 24 hours af...

Remembering Larry Kramer

For Kramer, who died at age 84 in Manhattan on Wednesday, not speaking up was a signal of a dishonorable combination — of cowardice, willful blindness and greed. He was constitutionally incapable of self-serving apathy, but that’s not to say that he didn’t recognize the cost of his conscience to that quieter corner of his identity as an artist. – Los Angeles Times

Coronavirus Update 5-27-2020: Is McDonald’s really a public nuisance?

As I've written in the past, it's difficult bordering on impossible for an employee to sue their employer based on an alleged COVID-19 exposure at the business. First, they have to overcome the issue of workers' comp exclusivity. And if they can manage to clear that, they still have the causation problem of proving that the exposure of this highly transmittable virus happened at work (as opposed to anywhere else in the world).  There's nothing like a pandemic, however, to spark the creativity...

Top 10 NHL Jerseys Discussion Nourishes ‘Social Closeness-ing’

Social distancing, huh? That’s a good one… and nothing new. As a young boy and teenager, our family lost our dad and my sister. Then, in the blink of an eye, the rest of my brothers and sisters were out of the house, doing grown-up things. I also said goodbye to friends who moved away. But on the fortunate side, I developed life-long friends who I consider brothers and sisters to this day. And here I sit in Hawaii (6,000 miles away from where I grew up in Marlboro, Mass., my very own socia...

Shark season is back: Surfers spooked at Trestles, advisory in San Clemente, sightings off Capo Beach and Manhattan

Mike Estrada sat on his surfboard at Lower Trestles on Tuesday, May 19, when he saw the dark gray fin, not the dolphin kind, sticking out of the ocean’s surface, slowly passing not far from where he and others waited for waves. The following day, advisory signs were posted near the San Clemente Pier warning beachgoers a shark had been spotted. Photographer Matt Larmand flew a drone over a great white shark off Capistrano Beach on Thursday, May 21, 2020. He’s documented the shark population o...
