From a distance, the Angels appear to flit back and forth, the realization of Dante’s Rose of Paradise. They have moved from Los Angeles to California to Anaheim to Los Angeles of Anaheim, often without relocating. Last month their lease on Angel Stadium was extended, but only to Dec. 31, 2020. That opened the possibility for another move. If you’re the mayor of Long Beach, why not pay a call to 2000 E. Gene Autry Way? Late Monday, Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia confirmed to the Southern California News Group that city officials have approached the … [Read more...] about ‘Los Angeles Angels of Long Beach?’ How geography, identity inform a franchise move

SAN DIEGO — Morning showers had moved far enough east that hung-over tourists were beginning to stretch into the winter sun. The lunchtime crowd was catching a whiff of the first patties at Woody's Breakfast and Burgers as the nearby boardwalk was beginning to buzz with the usual odds and ends — graybeards gawking, surfers kicking back after a morning session and visitors on ubiquitous e-scooters. One rider pulled into Pacific Beach boardwalk traffic without looking as a couple on their own e-scooters raced north, prompting a familiar hiss of sneakers sliding on sandy concrete: collision avoided. "You didn't have to stand here very long to hear a, 'Sorry bro,'" said Dan Borelli, who owns a bike and skate rental shop nearby. The fresh presence of tens of thousands of dockless scooters for rent in San Diego over the last year has driven some locals absolutely loco. Alexander Curtis, general manager of Woody's, says e-scooter users "drop them off right in front," where … [Read more...] about Startup impounds discarded e-scooters

That sound you hear from Southern California in the coming days and weeks could be the deserts exploding in Technicolor. Desert-watchers say the Golden State is likely in for another ”super bloom” of wildflowers like the one we experienced in 2017. All the ingredients for the colorful cocktail are in place: Deserts parched by recent years of drought. An uncharacteristically rainy fall and winter season that have effectively put the kibosh on that drought. And a cold winter, like the one at that wildflower ground zero called Anza-Borrego, to further lock more moisture into the ground. The timing for super bloom is perfect, with annuals normally blooming in mid-March. These flowers leaves seeds each spring that lie dormant all winter. And then — just add … [Read more...] about It’s almost time for California’s super bloom!
By Amy Graff, SFGATE Updated 4:20 am PDT, Wednesday, October 17, 2018 Myth #1: Earthquakes can be predicted. Seismologists can't make a specific prediction that an earthquake, perhaps magnitude 6 or greater, will definitely occur in a short time interval, perhaps a week, in a limited area, perhaps the San Francisco Bay area. What they can do is forecast the probabilities of earthquakes of different sizes, and the shaking they will cause, over a long time period such as decades. "While that information may seem vague, these probabilistic seismic hazards assessments are used to develop the building codes that help protect us from damage," explains Andrew Michael, a research geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey. "We can also estimate the rate of aftershocks after a large earthquake and that information is useful to guide response and recovery efforts." less Myth #1: Earthquakes can be predicted.
