LOS ANGELES, CA – If you’re a Los Angeles native, resident or even visitor, you will probably cringe at the combination of “LA” and “rush hour.” Sitting in LA traffic is an excruciatingly painful task, and not just because of the hours you spend putting pressure on your lower back. If your brakes aren’t screeching because of the driver who just cut you off, then you’re probably yelling about the bumper-to-bumper deadlock. Truth be told, traffic is infuriating, exhausting and unproductive

Welcome to Headline Hangover – our weekly take on some of the ridiculous local, national and global news stories. Here’s a look back some of the headlines that caught my attention for the week of November 6, 2016: President-Elect …uhh..
The good news about the civil rights struggle, suggests a new PBS special, is that we’re winning it. The less good news is that it will never be won
I did not expect Donald Trump to be elected president and, like most people, I was surprised when he won. On January 20th he becomes our head of government and head of state; the president is both prime minister and king.

Frank Sinatra records would rarely be confused with Public Enemy records.
For those of you who do not already know, the Esalen Institute is home to a truly unique, magical, loving, authentic community of highly intelligent, well-educated and talented thought-leaders committed to positive global transformation. I was extremely honored to be invited to teach alongside some of my favorite teachers such as Sally Kempton , Terry Hunt, Chip Conley and so many others, but when they told me that Reverend Michael Beckwith would also be there I have to admit that I was intimidated
Sorry, Orson. This time we’re invading Mars, not the other way around.

Acorn TV, best known as an importer of overseas programming, has banged out a solid hit with a new original production, the period spy drama Close to the Enemy .

At first glance, it is easy to dismiss poker as a silly game that middle-aged men play at their weekly guy’s night to one-up each other and earn some treasured cash winnings. However, first appearances can be deceiving.

Entrepreneurs often have stories of companies finding them rather than the other way around, and Walid Abdul-Wahab , the founder of Desert Farms is no different. After being turned down from most corporate jobs due to his international citizenship, he was determined to find a way to stay in the States and so instead pursued an Entrepreneur Visa. Around this time, he also realized that Americans were scrambling to find fad after fad of milk substitutes
Many years ago, I set foot on this country as a 7-year-old. At first, I was sad and woefully shy.
This piece is co-authored by Jens Ole Hansen, Global Market Director, Ramboll Energy How can you accelerate implementation of the Paris Climate Accord? That is the common theme of the side events at Cop22 Climate Conference in Morocco right now
By: Lara San Gil and Julie Kervadec Years ago I met my best friend, Julie, whilst studying for a Master in International Marketing in Madrid. Towards the end of the programme, Julie and I took part in a competition for L’Oréal, making it through as finalist. Although we did not win the competition, the great prize we got was that we realized of how well we worked together and of the complimentary skills we had
This election was a ridiculously long and sad spectacle, as well as being a total media circus, and said something rather unfortunate about what we appear to have become as a nation. America has officially made the transition from personifying the era of Lincoln and Fireside Chats to that of reality television, soap operas and sound bites.
Anyone who thinks a minor event like voting is going to shut down the television news industry’s coverage of the 2016 presidential election probably also thinks The Walking Dead is a spinoff from the Grateful Dead. Nope, in all likelihood Tuesday’s voting will give the TV news channels a chance to say, “Hmmm, someone won, that’s interesting,” and wade right back in. Truth is, we’ve learned a lot both from and about contemporary television news in this election.
“If I had Aladdin’s lamp for only a day, I’d make a wish and here’s what I’d say…” Lexington, North Carolina: It feels very much like Ground Zero here. Hillary will wrap up her campaign in Raleigh tonight. Here in the “Piedmont” people on both sides believe that whatever they can do in the final hours can make the difference, not just for North Carolina, but for the country
If Hillary actually responded to the number of emails that have reportedly been screened by the FBI, then she would have spent 8.56 hours per day answering each email in less than one second. That’s probably why she forgot to approve this campaign video that we uncovered
In light of the political climate in America right now there is an overwhelming amount of political coverage on television. From the news to comedy shows and right down to your favorite television series.
Adding to chorus of overbilled ratepayers urging more accountability at LA DWP, a new LA Times report shows the city’s so-called “ratepayer advocate” wrote himself a five year contract extension into Charter Measure RRR at $280,000 per year, roughly $40,000 more than the Mayor makes, and failed to disclose the self-dealing in the ballot summary he wrote. Fred Pickel, the City’s ratepayer advocate, has been missing in action during the three year old billing scandal that’s rocked the DWP.
While this train wreck of a national election comes to its long awaited conclusion, I keep thinking about how the world is changing and how little this election reflects the reality of the world around us. Technology has changed our economy, communication systems, society, and lifestyles, a set of facts unobserved by our national politics.
His name is Donald J. Trump and he approved this message! If anyone has any doubt about the authoritarian, fascistic nature of Donald Trump’s campaign for President, take a look at his virulently anti-Semitic closing campaign ad, which is laced with longstanding themes of anti-Semitism.
As a kid growing up in Long Island, I remember hearing my mom crying at the kitchen table as my dad tried to console her. She had recently lost her dad, my grandfather
“Moonlight” is a film as luminous as its title, a story in three chapters about the son of a crack addict, growing up in Florida, bullied and neglected. We see him as a child, befriended by a kind-hearted drug dealer, as a teenager, abused by classmates and having his first sexual encounter with another boy
Hillary Clinton is the most qualified candidate running for President. One of the reasons why is her experience with a critical issue that impacts every nation: hunger and malnutrition
Eleven years ago this August I was deployed in Iraq with the Lima Company combat unit, and recently, I reunited with my fellow Marines to commemorate the anniversary. Looking around, I was taken by how many of them are still serving — in the military, as police offers, or helping others as doctors and lawyers. I shouldn’t be surprised.
With luck the US presidential election results will be decisive on November 8. There will be a clear winner and no election disputes will emerge. Yet as the polls tighten nationally and in critical swing states there are possibilities of a contested election
How would I — or you — look to the world if subjected to 30 years of relentless, organized and fully-funded lies, calumny, distortions, faux outrage, hypocrisy, fabrications, attempted bullying and flagrant misogyny? Battered? Yes
Someone should hire Warner Wolf.
FBI Director James Comey’s brief letter to eight Congressional committee chairpersons updating them that that the FBI would investigate further emails from Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton found on the computer of her aide’s husband, Anthony Weiner, has shifted the Presidential polls. FBI director James Comey feared “being misunderstood,” but surely he knew that Mr. Trump and partisan media would swing into full conspiracy theory combat.

Artist Manu Saluja exhibits a body of work depicting the New York City subway system in her solo exhibition Passage: Paintings of Urban Life . She paints figures well, but the paintings that leap out at me include no people at all: they are closeups of details of the weathered stations themselves
Known for their otherworldly aesthetic and psychedelic visuals, Australian electronic-duo Empire of the Sun is intent on spreading a positive message with their third album Two Vines. There is a lot of distortion in the world, says Luke Steele (one half of the duo, and also frontman for indie rock band The Sleepy Jackson), and he doesn’t want to add to it.
The import series Brief Encounters proves again that while British actresses often seem as prim as their country’s reputation, they also love a chance to get naughty every so often. You could call Brief Encounters a period piece of sorts, since it’s set in the early 1980s, but this is a very different sort of costume drama. The outfits here run toward skimpy underwear, the type popularized in Britain by Ann Summers
James Comey’s decision to inform Congress that the FBI had discovered emails on a laptop belonging to disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner that may be relevant to the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server has roiled the presidential campaign with days to go before the election. His letter provided little details about the emails, leaving the ambiguous discloser subject to interpretation and wild speculation by Trump supporters. At a Friday rally, Donald Trump hailed the news as “bigger than Watergate,” even though all of the emails may be just copies of those released earlier to the FBI.
Hilary (Brenda Meaney) and Spike (Dan Clegg): What’s on their minds? God and math. Photos by Kevin Berne Can everything in human life, or in existence of any sort, be explained by higher math and supercomputers
For the past eighteen months, political pundits have been struggling to get a fix on the personality of Donald Trump, without much success. Their problem is that they live in the world of politics, where power and influence are the ultimate commodity.
This is a scary Halloween story from long ago involving a bunch of kids known as.. ..the Little Neckers. Right about now a chill will be running down your spine if you’re gray at the temples and you grew up where I did on the edge of Queens, in a sweet neighborhood called Douglaston

As a rabbi and political columnist, I find that every election demands close reflection, introspection, and action. The answer, this year, is clear
Along with the Haymarket and Sacco and Vanzetti trials, the execution of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg during the McCarthy-era stands as among the gravest miscarriages of justice in American history. In the last few months, the Rosenberg family has amassed over 13,000 signatures (http://www.rfc.org/ethel) calling on President Obama to issue an executive proclamation nullifying the guilty verdict for Ethel modeled after what Governor Michael Dukakis of Massachusetts did on the 50th anniversary of Sacco and Vanzetti.

Do you know why people make bad calls? Do you know why people fuck up?
I loved the recent news report that quotes Oprah saying that you do not have to like Hillary to vote for her. http://www.politico.com/story/2016/10/oprah-winfrey-on-clinton-230148 It is always an honor to be on the same page as Oprah! On February first of this year, unsettled by those I spoke to who felt they did not like Hillary enough to vote for her, I decided on “poetry” as my “response communication,” which I also placed on my website (www.sarakaysmullens.com). As you will no doubt agree, I am no poet

When it’s Alzheimer’s should the person be told the diagnosis?
After all the passion that has swirled around immigration in this year’s election campaign, a curious thing happened in all three presidential debates: Latino-focused issues were hardly mentioned. When it came to real discussion, suggests Maria Hinojosa, it’s as if Donald Trump’s wall had already gone up.
Without taking her eye off the ball, Hillary Clinton (D-NY) should immediately start campaigning against gridlock. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) should nationalize the race for Congress on this issue. Same for Chuck Schumer (D-NY)
