Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) and Councilman Kevin de Leon will take part in a Los Angeles mayoral candidates forum at ICM Partners on Tuesday that will focus on what is perhaps the biggest issue in the race: homelessness. The event, called Solving Homelessness and sponsored by Politico and ICM Partners , also will feature Alfre Woodard with opening remarks. It comes with just two weeks before the mayoral primary, with polls showing a tight race between Bass and developer Rick Caruso. An ICM Partners spokesperson said that Caruso, who has blanketed Los Angeles airwaves with ads focused on the homelessness crisis, was invited but declined, citing a scheduling conflict. In a debate in March , Bass said that she would appoint a person who would be in charge of addressing the homelessness crisis and that person would report to her. She also talked of a plan to house 15,000 people in her first year. De Leon emphasized his record in addressing the problem in his … [Read more...] about Los Angeles Mayor’s Race: ICM Partners, Politico To Host Candidates Forum On Homelessness

Dead Reckoning Part One is set for release on July 14, 2023 as the first of two sequels following up Fallout , the latest installment released back in 2018.

You’re fighting to save an ideal that doesn’t exist. It never did. You need to pick a side.” The film also stars Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, Hayley Atwell, and more.

Isaiah Lee, the 23-year-old accused of attacking Dave Chappelle on stage earlier this month, recalled his backstage meeting with the comedian in a new interview with The New York Post . Lee said Chappelle asked him why he tackled him during a stand-up set at the Hollywood Bowl, to which Lee said, “I told him my mother and grandmother, who fought for his civil rights to be able to speak, would be upset at the things he said.” According to Lee, Chappelle replied, “Now your story will die with you, son.” Lee then noted, “But he’s wrong. I’m sitting here talking to you about it.” Lee’s version of the conversation came after Chappelle offered his side at a stand-up show after the attack.

Speaking from the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles, Lee said he stormed the … [Read more...] about Dave Chappelle Reportedly Told Accused Attacker ‘Your Story Will Die With You’ During Backstage Meeting
Brett Morgen vividly remembers the first time he met David Bowie . When the Thin White Duke insults your work, it tends to burn deep into your memory. It was 2007, at which point Morgen had been a filmmaker for over a decade and had made documentaries on boxers ( On the Ropes ), Black music in America (the Say It Loud series), legendary Hollywood producer Robert Evans ( The Kid Stays in the Picture ) and the Chicago 10 ( Chicago 10 ). He had this idea for a collaboration with Bowie on what he called “a sort-of hybrid experimental film.” A lifelong fan, he was beyond excited when the rock star agreed to a meeting. And then, Morgen recalls over a Zoom call from his home in Los Angeles, the sit-down with Bowie and his associates started getting “a little contentious. He went from dismissive to just ripping into one of my movies. I felt like I was being tested. Right after he laid into me, someone asked, ‘What’s your favorite Bowie album, Brett?’ I said, ‘Well, to be quite … [Read more...] about ‘When You Eliminate the Wikipedia, You Arrive at the Personal’: Inside the Making of ‘Moonage Daydream’
A fresh outbreak of monkeypox in Europe and the United States in recent weeks isn’t just a threat to public health. It’s also a warning sign. More and more dangerous viruses, having evolved in animal populations, are jumping to the human population. Bird flu. MERS. SARS-CoV-1. And of course SARS-CoV-2, which has killed 6.3 million people since the very first infection in Wuhan, China, 30 months ago. It’s not hard to see why these animal-to-human “zoonotic” viral outbreaks are getting more severe and more frequent. We’re chopping down more of the forests where animals live, exposing them to us and us to them. Climate change and the illicit wildlife trade only make the problem worse. As deforestation surges, so does the risk of viral outbreaks. “The combination of climate change, population density and urban expansion is worrisome because I think we will continue to see novel viruses with the capacity to cause human disease,” said Stephanie James, the head of … [Read more...] about Is Monkeypox Just the Beginning?
