  • Beware Of Baby's Ear Infections

    Neil Rubenstein|Mar 16, 2017

    As reported by Reuters on February 7, Bank of America opens branches without employees. That’s right, the bank opened three completely automated branches during the month of January where customers can use ATMs and have video conferences with employees at other branches. What a money saver!!! How many loans to employees will be granted if no one has a job? A laid off Bank of America employee is a poor credit risk. An example here in California of drivers getting gouged could be a $100 traffic t...

  • A Lamed-Vavnik has fallen

    Mar 16, 2017

    My mother, Lillian A Fisher was born in Brooklyn to Polish immigrants on the first day of Spring, March 21, 1922. Much later she lived in Culver City for 61 years. Lillian lived by the same advice she gave others "Everyday accomplish three things: learn something new, have humor, and do a Mitzvah (good deed). And do you know which of these is the most important?", she'd point out "The second one, have humor!", and then she'd tell you a great joke. My mother lived a rich and full life because...

  • Theatre: What Not To Say To A Woman

    Carole Bell|Mar 16, 2017

    "Your breasts look incredible in that outfit." Inadvisable pickup line, for sure, Dude. That no man should ever say that to a woman he wants to impress is a given. Yet for Paul Linke, somehow that dealbreaker line didn't implode his chances. The result of his 25-year love affair with the woman he had just met is "It's Time," now showing at the Pacific Resident Theatre in Venice. "It's Time" is as much a paean to love, in its way, as is Shah Jahan's Taj Mahal, built in 1643 as his profound love...

  • Meet The Lakers' New General Manager, Longtime Agent Makes A Bold Career Move

    Mitch Chortkoff|Mar 16, 2017

    Mitch Kupchak learned the General Manager business from Jerry West, then took over. He had good years but not many in his final ones with lowly Laker teams and now he’s been replaced. What about the new guy? First, remember Kupchak was a Laker player and then a general manager. It’s a huge difference that Rob Pelinka was an agent who had Kobe Bryant as a client and now he’s going to work for a team for the first time. It’s a different world. Agents make friends and enemies. When they negotia...

Or is it a popularity contest among the players? Who will push them harder, keep them playing past the point of exhaustion, and make them want to play through the pain of broken bones and stitches still healing? After regular season games have been played and the playoff positions are set coaches are left to motivate their players through...

  • MOVIE REVIEW: HIDDEN FIGURES

    debbie lynn elias|Mar 16, 2017

    Written and directed by Theodore Melfi and co-written by Allison Schroeder, Melfi, based on the book by Margot Lee Shetterly, HIDDEN FIGURES is a "must see" film for every American. This is definitely perfect timing for the release of HIDDEN FIGURES and in fact, should be a double feature with "Jackie", as both take us back to the days of Camelot and the Kennedy administration when America aspired to reach to the moon and the stars beyond, and when a woman showed the world grace and dignity in...
