Scientists Track Cougar’s Wild Nightlife Above Hollywood

The Trust Act is the second milestone bill on immigration signed by Brown this week. On Thursday, he approved a measure allowing immigrants in the country illegally to receive state drivers licenses. “California is sending a clear message to Washington,” said Valladares, who came to the U.S. at age 7 and didn’t gain legal resident status until 2007. Families no longer have to live in fear. Children will know that at the end of the day, they’re going to see their parents.” The activists marched to the 1600 block of Vine Street, just blocks from landmarks such as the Capitol Records building and Pantages Theatre. Speakers stood on the bed of a truck and spoke from a microphone. Protesters clumped together on the street and sidewalk to listen. For our families, for our futures, we will keep marching! one speaker said to raucous cheers. LAPD Capt. Peter Zarcone, who monitored the rally and march, estimated there were between 1,000 and 2,000 attendees, and called the event “very peaceful and very positive.” The rally ended shortly after 1 p.m. Throughout the morning, activists pressed Congress to end the gridlock over Obamacare, reopen government and pass immigration reform that would create a pathway to citizenship for about 11 million people. Near the end of the event, leaders on the truck bed rolled our large banners depicting House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) and Rep.

Sikich set humane traps with cameras, rigged to send images to his cellphone. At 2 o’clock one morning in March 2012, his cellphone rang, and he and other scientists hurried to the site, a Department of Water and Power property just west of the park. Sikich used a blowpipe to administer a sedative to the mountain lion and attached a collar with GPS and very high frequency radio signal technology. The collar regularly sends data to a website via satellite or cellphone tower. Biologists remotely track an average of eight locations a day, mostly at night when the animal is active. They watch particularly for “location clusters,” indicating spots where the lion has been feeding. Using the location data as a guide, they have bushwhacked or crawled through poison oak and thick vegetation to find what was on P-22′s menu. Once in the vicinity, they follow their noses. “For fresh kills, smell is very telling; it smells like rotten meat,” said Laurel Serieys a PhD candidate in biology at UCLA who’s a project volunteer. She and Ordenana recently spent four arduous hours hiking in to four “kill sites” in deep ravines or on steep hillsides. At the first location, right off a paved road in the park, they found only the malodorous rumen, or stomach, of a deer. They surmised that coyotes had dragged the deer’s body away.

Conservatives Use Cory Booker’s Connection to ‘Hollywood Liberals’ Against Him

The email cites a CNN report about the “liberal actors” who have been raising money for Booker at swanky events in California. The email asks for donations to help elect Bookers opponent, Republican Steve Lonegan. Lonegan and Booker are seeking the U.S. Senate seat that was held by Frank Lautenberguntil he died in June. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has set a special election for Oct. 16, and Booker has become the latest cause celebre among rich Hollywood politicos. In April, for example, a party at producer Jerry Weintraubs Beverly Hills mansion raised $500,000. Co-hosts included Disney CEO Bob Iger, DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, Sony CEO Michael Lyntonand Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara.

Abrams, Jennifer Garner, Weintraub, Damon and Affleck. Lloyd Marcus, chairman of the Conservative Campaign Committee, said the email invoking Bookers ties to Hollywood was particularly effective, generating thousands of small donations, as opposed to the donations of up to $10,000 apiece that Booker raises at celebrity events.
