Help with calculus 3
By Kevin Modesti | [email protected] | Daily NewsPUBLISHED: January 22, 2019 at 3:47 pm | UPDATED: January 22, 2019 at 3:54 pm In some potentially important ways, Eric Garcetti’s presidential hopes got a lift Tuesday morning when the Los Angeles mayor helped end the teachers strike in the nation’s second-largest school district. But Garcetti’s role in the settlement between officials of Los Angeles Unified and the teachers union is hardly a springboard to the White House — and it might even have a downside, political observers said in interviews. The pluses are clear for Garcetti, who is thought to be preparing to launch what would be a long-shot campaign for the 2020 Democratic nomination. First, it lends credence to the claim that a big-city mayor would make a good president because he or she has dealt with tangible problems.

The blue of an unfurled body bag has become a gut-wrenching splash of color in this apocalyptic landscape as pressure mounts to account for the hundreds of missing people after a wildfire roared through the California town of Paradise. Coroner search teams, many accompanied by a chaplain, have fanned out across Paradise, visiting dozens of addresses that belong to people reported missing since last week's explosive blaze leveled this town of 27,000. At least 42 people were confirmed dead, making it the deadliest in state history. The searchers use a grim calculus at each scene: No cars in the driveway is good, one car a little more ominous and multiple burned-out vehicles equals a call for extra vigilance. When a body is found, a call goes out, yellow police tape goes up — and the blue body bag arrives. In many cases, there is almost nothing left. The long bag looks almost empty as it's carefully carried out of the ruins and placed in a black hearse.

Ryan Madson is switching bullpens, trying to help another team win a title. And Josh Donaldson is hoping he’s healthy enough to contribute. The Milwaukee Brewers? They were a busy bunch, swinging trades to get starter Gio Gonzalez, outfielder Curtis Granderson and reliever Xavier Cedeno. Several contending teams swung into action Friday, making trades to bolster potential playoff rosters. A player must be on a club by Aug. 31 to be eligible for the postseason. “I think what happens in September is that the whole calculus of this thing changes,” Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said. More: Tigers stand pat at waiver-wire deadline Counsell spoke after the Brewers acquired Cedeno, and before they beat Washington 4-1 at Nationals Park. After the win, Milwaukee said it had gotten Gonzalez from the Nats and Granderson from Toronto. … [Read more...] about Donaldson, McCutchen, Madson move; busy Brewers make 3 deals
