Word of the week: NFT

I am going to do my best to explain the hot initialism of the week—trust me, I’m just as baffled as most non-rich, non-tech people—but first I’m going to tell you what it doesn’t stand for.

Study: There Was No ‘Mass Exodus’ From California In 2020

BERKELEY (AP) – A popular notion that there was a mass exodus from California last year is wrong, according to research from a nonpartisan think tank.

Of people who moved, about 80% moved to a new location in California, not out of the state. But, there are some nuances… https://t.co/8x3N3KAAuv Thread (2/6 ) pic.twitter.com/6pNa19ee4n...

Surge in anti-Asian hate crimes raises fears in Southern California

For several weeks last April, Garden Grove resident Linda Nguyen didn’t leave her home. She worked remotely. She ordered her groceries and food online. She didn’t take walks in the neighborhood. What Nguyen says “paralyzed” her was not the coronavirus. It was the fear that she, like many other Asian Americans, would be physically attacked by someone who might mistakenly blame her for the pandemic. “The fear that someone would physically hurt me was very real,” she said.

Todd Rundgren predicts virtual concert tour will be ‘the new normal’

Todd Rundgren has spent more than 50 years being ahead of the curve as a recording artist, a producer and video pioneer. So it should come as no surprise that his Clearly Human Virtual Tour, a 25-date affair that launched on Valentine’s Day, comes from an idea he’s been cooking up since well before a global pandemic shut down the live music industry. But it took that, and several postponements of Rundgren’s own planned tour dates during 2020, to take the concept off the drawing board and onto sc...

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Signs Law Aimed At Returning Students To The Classroom

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California’s public schools can tap into $6.6 billion of new state spending to return students to classrooms under a bill Gov.
