Finds Itself, Once Again, Facing Scandal Advertisement Supported by ByBilly Witz, Jennifer Medina and Tim Arango March 14, 2019 LOS ANGELES — On the palm-tree-lined campus of the University of Southern California this week, a tour guide proudly pointed out to prospective students the university’s six Heisman football trophies and award-winning faculty, testaments to the stellar reputation the school has fought hard to build. What the guide didn’t mention was that U.S.C. had emerged at the epicenter of an unfolding college admissions scandal involving federal charges of bribery, cheating and parents who were willing to pay thousands of dollars to get their underperforming children into some of the nation’s top universities. Of the nearly three … [Read more...] about Bribes and Big-Time Sports: U.S.C. Finds Itself, Once Again, Facing Scandal
Culture Movies & TV Whitney Way Thore and Todd Beasley are on the road teaching their Big Girls Dance Class tour, but things aren’t going as planned. Todd is messing up steps and Whitney can’t tell if he’s doing it on purpose since he’s confident that he knows the choreography. Worse, people in the crowd, who are taking the class for the first time, are noticing that Todd is messing up the routine. “I really wish that I didn’t have to worry about Todd’s performance on top of everything else. I wish that I could just teach but I don’t have the luxury right now,” she says in a sneak-peek clip obtained by Newsweek. “A member of the class called Todd out on messing up the choreography,” Whitney adds. “Like, I’m confused because he actually knew this choreography so is he trying to play me?

Mayor London Breed wasn’t on November’s ballot, but holy hell did she lose this election. Moderate Democrat candidates Breed endorsed in contentious Board of Supervisors races lost by solid margins to progressive-leaning Dems. And, of course, Proposition C won handily. That measure, which will tax wealthy businesses to help solve our homeless crisis, was backed to the tune of roughly $10 million by — of all people! — Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff. Though granted he is a San Francisco native, who expected a literal representation of the Monopoly man to be more in touch with the will of San Franciscans than the mayor? Her picks to lead District 6, Christine Johnson and Sonja Trauss, lost. Her pick to lead District 4, Jessica Ho, appears to have lost. The neighborhoods of San Francisco resoundingly rejected Breed’s recommendations. It’s a fascinating development for our mayor, whose own election was won in a squeak against Supervisor Jane Kim and former … [Read more...] about Breed may not have been on the ballot, but she lost this election big time
