    SANTA BARBARA —  After the sun crept over the horizon Wednesday, the familiar soundtrack of this seaside city — crashing waves and circling seagulls — was, for a moment, drowned out by the reverberation of a chiming bell. The chimes pierced the air 34 times — once for each of the victims who died a year ago when the Conception dive boat burned and sank off Santa Cruz Island, marking the deadliest maritime disaster in modern California history. Sometime around 3:30 a.m. on Sept. 2, 2019, crew members aboard the Conception, a 75-foot, wood-hulled vessel, woke up to a loud noise and saw massive flames in the boat’s galley. Directly below the fire, in the belly of the boat, was...

    TOKYO—Cops in Japan have to do jobs they hate, and one of them is babysitting gangsters. Yep, keeping the peace sometimes means keeping the traditionally tattooed, sociopathic, tribalistic, and well-tailored yakuza from killing each other. That doesn’t always go well. On the afternoon of Oct. 10, in Kobe city, the police stationed in front of the offices of a yakuza group, the Kobe Yamaguchi-gumi (“the Rebellion”) were on guard and bored.  Some were in uniform, some were plainclothes cops. Often, in both physical appearance and dress (white shirts, black ties, black suits), it is hard to tell the cops that crack down on the yakuza (marubo deka) from the yakuza themselves. Of course, cops don’t get tattoos or chop off...

    by Paul F. Clark, Pennsylvania State University In the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer, news reports have suggested that police unions bear some of the responsibility for the violence perpetrated against African Americans. Critics have assailed these unions for protecting officers who have abused their authority. Derek Chauvin, the former police officer facing second-degree murder charges for Floyd’s death, had nearly 20 complaints filed against him during his career but only received two letters of reprimand. Many people who support labor unions in principle, who view them as a countervailing force against the power of employers, have only recently come to view police unions as problematic – as entities that perpetuate a...

    The first two virtual national conventions in American history have been successful in many ways. But the change has also had at least one bad consequence, and that is the failure to bring together in one place people in each party with different points of view. That, in turn, reflects a larger problem that ails our national politics. Political conventions once were much more than shows to present the party’s nominees and agenda to television audiences. They were raucous affairs in which the difficult work of selecting a nominee was done through hard-nosed political negotiations and balloting. Even after that ended and nominees were chosen through primaries and caucuses ahead of any convention, the conventions brought together people who often...

They were the first all-female band who wrote their own songs and played their own instruments to earn a No. 1 album. They remain, by the way, the only one. They are among only a handful of musical acts who went to No. 1 on a debut album. Where they stayed for six weeks. At the peak of their '80s fame, their members faced addiction and open heart surgery. They've been on dozens of magazine covers and toured all around the world. But what really got me, somewhere in the midst of watching "The Go-Go's," was the nugget that...

    President Donald Trump has claimed that back in January and February, no one in the U.S. had any way of knowing that COVID-19 — which was spreading rapidly in Mainland China — would become a global pandemic and kill thousands of Americans.

    Remote work, once considered a novelty or an odd experiment, has become a necessity for many businesses in the Covid-19 world. This has challenged the common assumption that remote work environments hinder employee productivity. Executives across industries have marveled at productivity remaining consistent or even increasing as employees rapidly shifted to working from home with many of them doing double duty as home-school teachers. Yet, somehow, the lesson that companies have deduced from this isn’t that they should go all-remote, but instead that they should go hybrid: combining remote and co-located work. No matter how you approach it, hybrid-remote is hard, and in the end, companies that attempt to do both will either go all-in with remote or go back...
