Merchants of doubt: how a handful of scientists obscured the truth on issues from tobacco smoke to global warming

Merchants of doubt: how a handful of scientists obscured the truth on issues from tobacco smoke to global warming

After global warming became mainstream fodder for political debate and the Prius became the celebrity vehicle of choice, scientists joined the anti-global warming campaign, and published a handful of scientific reports about human’s effect on the Earth’s climate.

Howie’s Ranch Market

Howie’s Ranch Market

A trip to Howie’s is a trip back to a happier time, when grocers were grocers and service was always with a smile. This compact, all-purpose market is justly famed for three things: Alexander’s Meats, a terrific butcher with Harris Ranch beef, dry-aged prime cuts, excellent marinated poultry and meat (great asada); Lisa’s Bakery, a […]

The full movie schedule isn’t up yet, but […]

Sign Language

Today is the first of the month, and that means it’s Theme Day for participating City Daily Photo bloggers. This month’s theme is Funny Signs. I always smile when I see this happy-go-lucky warning sign at the Kaldi counter toaster. It makes me think of how a similar approach might be applied for other warnings: […]

Theme Day: Funny Signs

Theme Day: Funny Signs

There may be a part of Pasadena I haven’t scoured for funny signs, but I don’t know where it is. I had to go to Valley Village to find this one (thanks for the tip, Lisa!). Sometimes I want to tell people Los Angeles isn’t as weird as folks say it is. Then I see […]
