  1. Throughout his 15-plus seasons in the National Basketball Association (NBA), Lebron James has been considered to be one of the most 'Non-Tradable' basketball players. Every year, each and every NBA franchise wishes to bring the King to their home court and every fan dreams of watching him play in the league wearing their city's colours. His basketball IQ and ability to make the players around him better has made James quickly climb the success ladder in the highly competitive league and his unbelievably well-maintained physical condition has allowed him to remain on top for the better half of the decade. Ironically, his greatness has also become the biggest bane of his future endeavours in the league. In an era of super-teams when gifted athletes like Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and Demarcus Cousins join hands to come up with the practically undefeatable Golden State Warriors, Lebron's image as the best player in the world has somehow restricted other stars of the game to combine forces with him because of the fear of losing out their legacy under the shadows of someone who is fighting a battle with the ghost of Michael Jordan. This might as well be the reason why the thought of trading Lebron James himself during the league's trade season for a younger star-athlete of the game like Anthony Davis came to the mind of President of the Los Angeles Lakers, Jeanie Buss. © Reuters According to a Bleacher Report report, another theory is that Buss wanted to trade James in order to cut ties with his agent Rich Paul, who, she believed, was the man behind leaking the details of Anthony Davis' trade request to the New Orleans Pelicans. While it sounds outrageous to trade the team's best player based on a grudge with his agent, the Lakers would be foolish to not consider trading an aging Lebron James (who will be 35 years old by the time the next season begins) if they happen to strike a deal with some (maybe the Pelicans) who could offer a younger but similar talent in return. The league seems to come to a complete halt every time there are talks of Lebron James switching team. It is highly likely that the basketball world would freeze once again come off-season when the Lakers try to bring in more talent in hopes of becoming a title contender.

  3. Bubba Watson plays his shot from the 17th tee during the third round of the Genesis Open golf tournament at Riviera Country Club. Photo: Orlando Ramirez/USA TODAY Sports LOS ANGELES: Bubba Watson, back in business with a new ball on a course where he has won twice before, took the third-round lead at the Genesis Open on Saturday as a large pack queued up close behind. Watson, whose nine PGA Tour victories include two Masters titles, charged to the front with a six-under-par 65 at storied Riviera in the Los Angeles neighbourhood of Pacific Palisades. He posted a 10-under 203 total, one shot ahead of fellow American Patrick Cantlay (69), who curled a 55-foot birdie putt into the middle of the hole at the par-four 18th. Four others are two behind ? Americans Kevin Na and Tony Finau, Australia Cameron Smith and halfway leader Graeme McDowell. Watson, whose wife was a professional basketballer, played in the NBA All-Star weekend celebrity game in Los Angeles on Friday. Back at home on grass instead of hardwood, he started his third round in style with a tap-in eagle at the par-five first, but acknowledged it was a tough slog the rest of the way. ?It was a grind full time,? said the 39-year-old, who won at Riviera in 2014 and 2016. ?It was easy when you have a tap in. Then I just hung on the rest of the time.? Watson has slipped to 117th in the world rankings after an ill-fated experiment in 2017 with a different brand of ball. He has not exactly set the world on fire in three previous starts this year but hopes to stay on an emotional even keel in the final round. ?You?ve got to know that this golf course is going to make you mess up, the grass, the way the ball bounces on it, you?re going to have shots you think are perfect and ended up not perfect,? he said. ?But it?s golf, not just this week but every week. You?re going to know you?re going to make a mistake, especially on a Sunday, and you?ve got to keep fighting and hopefully your fight is better than everybody else?s fight.?
  4. The Amazon logo is seen at the Young Entrepreneurs fair in Paris, France, February 7, 2018. REUTERS/Charles Platiau Amazon.com Inc is testing a program to ship its sellers? goods, sending shares in FedEx and UPS tumbling even though analysts and the companies played down any near-term threat to the two global delivery businesses. Amazon is running ?Shipping with Amazon? in Los Angeles and possibly other locations, a person familiar with the matter told Reuters on condition of anonymity. News of the test sparked investor concern that the world?s largest online retailer would upend the shipping market. FedEx Corp and United Parcel Service Inc shares were down more than 4 percent in afternoon trading. FedEx, UPS and analysts played down the idea that a trial poses a near-term threat to the couriers? businesses. Cowen and Co analyst Helane Becker estimated Amazon would have to invest $100 billion to build a global network of facilities, planes and trucks to compete with FedEx and UPS. The program, while still at an early stage, aims to reduce hurdles that some sellers face getting their inventory to Amazon?s facilities. Under the new process being tested, Amazon sends a truck to pick up sellers? products, which then takes inventory either directly to an Amazon fulfilment centre or to the US Postal Service or to couriers like FedEx, depending on what?s most cost-effective, said the person who spoke to Reuters. Amazon has run a number of experiments in Los Angeles because the city is spread out and is a big market for deliveries. ?Shipping with Amazon? is currently intended for select third-party sellers in the test, not for businesses in general, and still it is not yet ready to roll out widely to sellers on Amazon, said the person. FedEx and UPS customers should not expect to shift their business to Amazon anytime soon. The Seattle-based company has considered taking work from the couriers on a conceptual level but does not have initiatives currently planned to ramp up the competition, the person said. Amazon said on Friday it was ?always innovating and experimenting on behalf of customers and the businesses that sell and grow on Amazon to create faster lower-cost delivery choices?. UPS and FedEx have both spent billions of dollars in recent years to upgrade and expand their networks to handle soaring e-commerce volumes. UPS said last week it plans to spend $7 billion on upgrading its network this year alone. UPS and FedEx also consider Amazon an important customer. Amazon accounts for less than 10 percent of total revenue for UPS and 4 percent of revenue for FedEx, according to Wolfe Research analyst Scott Group. UPS and FedEx declined to comment on Amazon?s specific strategies or decisions regarding the utilization of their services. ?There is tremendous opportunity in the business-to-customer market and more growth coming to the sector and UPS, irrespective of how other companies shift strategies,? UPS spokesman Glenn Zaccara said. An earlier report on Amazon?s plan ?demonstrates a lack of basic understanding of the full scale of the global transportation industry?, FedEx spokesman Patrick Fitzgerald said.
  5. LOS ANGELES: Replica Tuscan castles, minimalist mansions and country cottages in the rarefied Bel-Air neighborhood of Los Angeles could soon be reduced to ashes, their owners' fame and wealth providing little immunity against California's latest raging wildfires. "We're evacuating the street you must leave!" a police officer barked into a bullhorn, amid the din of helicopters and airplanes dropping fire retardants. "The fire is at the end of this street," added one of his colleagues. The officer knocks on each door on the street - home to the likes of SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, pop superstar Beyonce and media magnate Rupert Murdoch - to make sure no one is left behind. The luxurious multi-million homes here are threatened by the fire named "Skirball", a blaze that destroyed 200 hectares in less than 24 hours. At least four homes were already reduced to ashes, while Murdoch´s property, along with his vineyard, was surrounded by flames. Evan Klein, a photographer in jeans and a white t-shirt, locked his door taking only his cameras and his dog, who waited for him on the passenger seat of his vintage sedan. His wife was already at work. "We woke up at 5:30 (Wednesday) morning and the fire was on the hill and was coming right towards us," he told AFP. "It was pitch black out and you were seeing orange on that hill, and it became enormous at the end of the street," he said. He hoped that the fire would remain contained - even as authorities said the wind was expected to dramatically pick up as Thursday progressed. Like a car on the highway Sheldon Shire had just turned the ignition on his car and was getting ready to head over to his son's house. He and his wife Joni were nervous. They are taking "papers, valuables, works of art, letters from our grandchildren, photos of our weddings, passports, computer passwords," she said. "It´s hard to choose. All of a sudden everything has a lot of value," adds the brunette with a bob cut and round glasses. Greater Los Angeles has been struck since Monday evening with several blazes like the Thomas Fire in Ventura County, about 45 minutes' drive from the city. It has claimed one life and swallowed more than 80,000 acres and 150 buildings. Local fire chief Captain Anthony Valdez said conditions were the worst he'd seen in 20 years "because of the low humidity and the wind - it was blowing at 50 miles per hour with gusts up to 80 mp/h," he explained as branches and vegetation devoid of moisture popped noisily in the background. The Rupert Murdoch estate, multiple opulent mansions and a vineyard surrounded by heavy gating, was threatened by several blazes. By dawn, Skirball, which has already threatened the Getty Center museum and its collection of masterpieces, was "was coming to you as fast as a car on the highway" with flames higher than 10 meters, said Valdez. As he and his team battled the blaze, they "took down the door of a house and hid there until the fire passed us," he added. He gestured to two houses that have already been razed to the ground on the hills at the end of the adjoining Moraga Lane. A firefighter for the past 30 years, Valdez had already spent nearly 48 hours on his feet, but this was far from his first rodeo. "We do cat naps for 10 to 20 minutes," he added, preparing for a long night ahead. The last Bel-Air fire in 1961 left 500 homes destroyed and prompted revision of the city´s fire code.
  6. Paris was awarded the 2024 summer Olympics and Los Angeles the 2028 Games on Wednesday, as the International Olympic Committee (IOC) broke with decades of tradition to vote on a unique double allocation. Paris, which has hosted two previous Olympics, will stage the event 100 years after its last Games in 1924 while Los Angeles will also organise its third Games after 1932 and 1984. IOC President Thomas Bach embraced both cities? mayors on stage after a unanimous show of hands by IOC members ratified the awards. The announcement was celebrated in Paris with the unveiling of a giant set of interlaced rings, the symbol of the Games, in a heavy downpour on the Trocadero square with lights glittering on the Eiffel Tower in the background. ?In the coming seven years we will prepare the Olympic Games with all our energy,? French President Emmanuel Macron, who had personally campaigned for the bid, said. ?Together we must do everything in our power to ensure that Paris hosts a magnificent games in 2024.? The IOC decided in July to award both Games at the same time, following the withdrawal of four of the six cities bidding for the 2024 Olympics, amid concerns about the size, cost and complexity of organising the world?s biggest multi-sports event. Los Angeles then dropped its bid for the 2024 Olympics, for which it had been campaigning for over two years, in return for receiving the 2028 edition. This paved the way for Paris as the sole 2024 bidder to win the Games unopposed. MOMENTOUS DAY ?This is a momentous day for the people of Los Angeles and the United States,? said LA mayor Eric Garcetti. ?For the first time in a generation, we are bringing the Games back to the City of Angels.? Paris, with a Games budget of 6.8 billion euros (6.12 billion pounds), had failed with previous attempts to land the 1992, 2008 and 2012 Olympics. The LA Games have a budget of $5.3 billion and will essentially follow the plan they had in place for 2024, including housing athletes at the UCLA campus. Both Paris?s bid co-chair Tony Estanguet and LA bid chairman Casey Wasserman are to stay on and lead the host cities? preparations, mayors Anne Hidalgo and Garcetti confirmed in a news conference after the announcement. It is the first time the IOC has awarded a Games 11 years in advance, as it traditionally gives the next Olympic host city seven years to prepare. The Olympic body, however, was eager to secure the future of its prime product after Boston, Budapest, Rome and Hamburg all pulled the plug on their 2024 bids mid-race. Bach said the unanimous IOC decision would secure the future of the Games and ensure successful Olympics. ?It is hard to imagine something better. Ensuring the stability of the Olympic Games for the athletes of the world for the next 11 years is something extraordinary,? he said. Both the 2014 winter Games in Russia?s Sochi and the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics were mired in controversy over corruption, embezzlement and doping allegations, dealing a major blow to the reputations of the event and the IOC. Tokyo, the host of the next summer Games in 2020, has also had to fend off allegations of corruption regarding the decision to award it the Games four years ago.
  7. SAN FRANCISCO: US authorities on Thursday accused a Chinese national visiting the United States of providing malware that has been linked to the theft of security clearance records of millions of American government employees. Yu Pingan of Shanghai was arrested on Monday at Los Angeles International Airport after a federal criminal complaint accused him of conspiring with others wielding malicious software known as Sakula, a Justice Department spokesman said on Thursday. The complaint said the group attacked a series of unnamed US companies using Sakula, the same rare program involved in US Office of Personnel Management (OPM) hacks detected in 2014 and 2015. The filing did not mention the OPM hacks. The arrest could provide information on the OPM hacks which U.S. officials have blamed on the Chinese government. In an FBI affidavit linked to the complaint, an FBI agent said he believed Yu provided versions of Sakula to two unnamed men that he knew would be used to carry out attacks on the firms. Yu?s court-appointed attorney, Michael Berg, said Yu was a teacher with no affiliation with China?s government. ?He says he has no involvement in this whatsoever,? Berg said, adding that Yu came to Los Angeles for a conference. The Justice Department and San Diego FBI declined to comment further. The court filings said Sakula had rarely been seen before the attacks on U.S. companies and Yu knew the software he was providing would be used in the hacks carried out between 2010 and 2015. Though the victims are not named, some companies appeared to be in the aerospace and energy industries. Adam Meyers, vice president at US security firm CrowdStrike, said software flaws and one of the internet protocol addresses cited in the complaint matched up with attacks on a US turbine manufacturer, Capstone Turbine, and a French aircraft supplier. Meyers said Sakula could be used by multiple groups, but that all of the known targets would be of interest to the Chinese government. The OPM breach was a subject of US-China talks, and the Chinese government previously told American diplomats it had arrested some criminals in the case. Yu remains in jail pending a court hearing on his detention next week.
  8. A vehicle ploughed into a crowd in Los Angeles on Sunday and injured nine people, one critically, authorities said, but it was not clear if the incident was intentional. Eight people were being transported to hospitals after the vehicle struck the crowd on West Pico Boulevard, the Los Angeles Fire Department said on Twitter. A ninth person, an off-duty Los Angeles firefighter, was hurt but did not need to be taken to a hospital, it said. A 44-year-old man was in critical condition, the fire department said. Three people were seriously injured, and four were in fair condition, with the ages of the seven ranging from 18 to 51, it said. Los Angeles' NBC television affiliate, KNBC, said the vehicle was a van and the driver had remained at the scene. The fire department tweets did not say if the incident was intentional. Militants mounted vehicle attacks in the past year on pedestrians in Britain, France, Germany, Israel and Sweden, and a man drove a van last month into a crowd of worshippers leaving a London mosque.
  9. Gavin Smith, 57, a 20th Century Fox distribution executive is shown in this undated photograph released by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. REUTERS/Courtesy Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department/Handout/File Photo LOS ANGELES: A convicted drug dealer was found guilty on Monday of voluntary manslaughter in the death of a Hollywood studio executive who was missing for more than two years before his remains were found buried in the California desert. John Lenzie Creech, 44, was convicted by a Los Angeles Superior Court jury after a two-week trial. The jurors had begun deliberating on Friday afternoon. Prosecutors said during the trial that Creech attacked and beat Gavin Smith, 57, after finding his estranged wife in a car with the film distribution executive at 20th Century Fox. A Los Angeles County public defender who represented Creech at trial, Irene Nunez, could not immediately be reached for comment following the verdict. Local KNBC-TV reported that Nunez argued at trial that Smith had died during a violent, "tragic" fight between the two men and that there had been no intent on her client's part to kill. Smith ? also known for playing on UCLA's 1975 national championship basketball team under celebrated coach John Wooden ? was reported missing on May 1, 2012, prompting police to issue a missing person bulletin and launch an exhaustive search. The film studio issued a statement expressing concern about his disappearance, while family members posted a $20,000 reward, saying the 6-foot-6-inch (1.98-metre) ex-athlete with "movie star" looks should be easy to spot. His son Evan Smith ? then a forward for the University of Southern California basketball team ? tweeted messages such as "I will not stop until I find my father." Smith's black Mercedes-Benz was found in February 2013 at a storage facility in the Los Angeles suburb of Simi Valley. In October 2014, hikers stumbled across a skull and other bones belonging to the missing studio executive in a shallow grave in the Angeles National Forest, 64 kilometres east of Los Angeles. Creech, who was serving an eight-year prison term for sale of a controlled substance when he was arrested in connection with Smith's death, faces a maximum of 11 years behind bars for his conviction on the voluntary manslaughter charge. He was ordered back to court on September 19 for sentencing.
  10. geo_embedgallery LOS ANGELES: A giant Bat-signal lit up the side of City Hall in Los Angeles Thursday night to honour Batman actor Adam West, who played the superhero role in the 1960s television series. He died on Friday at age 88 following a battle with leukemia. The caped crusader helped protect the fictional Gotham City in a franchise that began as a DC Comics strip before also moving to television and film. When Gotham´s authorities needed Batman´s help, they projected a light beam with his logo into the sky. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and police chief Charlie Beck led Thursday´s tribute. Hundreds of fans thronged the ceremony, many dressed up in costumes from the television series and films. Two replicas of the 1960s-era Batmobile were parked outside the building. Burt Ward, 71, who played Batman´s sidekick Robin on the show, also took part. "I´m here to tell you that my friend Adam would want every single one of you to be incredibly happy and to be joyous," he told the crowd. The 1966-68 TV series had a low-brow comedy touch that made it far different from the darker "Batman" moves of today. West delivered his often corny lines with deadpan earnestness, entertaining children and adding a touch of satirical humor for adults. The series epitomised the era´s kitsch, with exclamations like "POW!" and "BAM!" written in pop-art script flashing across television screens. The show gave rise to a movie version in 1966, in which West also starred, and fueled a franchise that included merchandise like toy Batmobiles, Batphones, dolls and lunchboxes.
  11. Image courtesy: Reuters video An Aeromexico passenger jet collided with a utility truck on a taxiway of Los Angeles International Airport shortly after landing on Saturday, injuring eight employees who were aboard the truck, but no one on the plane was hurt, authorities said. The cause of the mishap, which damaged the right wing of the Boeing 737 and left the large supply truck overturned on its side, remained under investigation, said Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey. Six men and two women aboard the truck were taken to an area hospital for treatment of various unspecified injuries, none of them considered to be life-threatening, Humphreys said. Airport officials said all eight were listed in stable condition. No one among the approximately 150 passengers and crew aboard the plane, Aeromexico Flight 642 from Mexico City, required any medical attention, according to Humphreys. But a statement from the airport said one passenger reported suffering some pain after leaving the aircraft. The accident occurred at about 2:30 PM Pacific time. There was no fuel spill or fire, and the plane was able to finish taxiing to its gate, where the passengers disembarked. Los Angeles International ranks as America's second-busiest airport, with nearly 700,000 takeoffs and landings a year.
