The […]

Keeler: Denver’s now a No Kawhi Zone. And Jerami Grant, Gary Harris just handed Nuggets a Game 3 lifeline.

They’ll need more. They’ll probably need to be even better. Leonard is 16-5 (.762) in Game 3s over his career. He’s 7-2 (.778) when coming off a Game 2 defeat. The last time Kawhi was held to only four field goals in a postseason tilt, Game 2 of a 2016 series against Memphis, Leonard went […]

With no contact and substantial space, Getaway’s tiny houses were ahead of their time

Siena and I set out to explore the 80-acre property, an uncluttered setting with a few winding roads and groves of trees. I saw guests at ease: two boys swinging in a hammock, a dad roasting hot dogs for his daughter, a Siberian husky sitting as still as a garden gnome. I glanced but didn’t […]

Nuggets coach Michael Malone: After Game 2, stop “hating” on Gary Harris

Sanity bike rides: Malone said that one of the unique quirks of the bubble has been running into opponents in restaurants, barbershops, elevators and meal rooms. Before the Nuggets’ Game 5 win over Utah, Malone said he happened to be getting a haircut at the exact same time as Clippers’ coach Doc Rivers. Malone said that […]

Brad Pitt Fails to Make 3-Point Turn on ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Set

Brad is behind the wheel of a 1960 Karmann Ghia roadster — an awesome car back in the day.  Brad was trying to 3-point it on a narrow, Bev. Hills road, with little success as he filmed “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”

Hyperloop Unveiled: Billionaire Elon Musk Reveals Wild Idea for Superfast Travel

The bulk of Hyperloop’s cost would come from building the tube, which in California would primarily parallel Interstate 5 through farm country. Because the pods are designed to be light, the tube would be mounted above ground on pylons, reducing construction costs, improving earthquake safety and easing right-of-way issues, Musk said.

Team Germany (Audi, BMW, Mercedes) to Dominate Paris Motor Show

NEW DELHI: Next week the 2018 Paris Motor Show will begin at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles. Along with the auto shows in Geneva and Frankfurt, it’s among the largest car events in Europe.

Real-Life Cops, and Me

I needed a better connection to my father than I had, and the one I found was Adam-12, a series that was, in a way, designed with almost insidious perfection as My First Police Show — a smooth transition from kids’ TV into the grown-up world. For one thing, it was only 30 minutes; for […]
