L.A. Will Have to Stretch Funds to Meet Goal of Building 10,000 Houses for Homeless in 10 Years

In 2016, Los Angeles voters approved a $1.2-billion bond measure to help fund housing for homeless people, with a goal of 10,000 new units in a decade. Now, after hustling to get as many housing projects started as soon as possible, city officials are coming to the end of the money available through Proposition HHH, and it’s not certain that promise will be kept. The city has committed two-thirds of the bond to secure a little more than half the […]

Sri Lanka, Citing ‘False News Reports,’ Temporarily Blocks Social Media After Attacks

The government, in taking the drastic step, cited “false news reports” it said were circulating online.

When Hassan Whiteside of the Miami Heat wired $2.75 million to Michael Avenatti in January 2017, the pro basketball player intended most of the money to go to his former girlfriend, Alexis Gardner.

5 Years Later, Some Fear O.C. Jail Snitch Scandal Will Go Unpunished

Nearly five years have passed since a lawyer representing the man who slaughtered eight people inside a Seal Beach salon first raised questions about the way investigators used informants inside Orange County’s jails.

But jailhouse records soon proved otherwise, […]
