    For years, WME vp Skip Chasey has led an openly double life as a "master" in L.A.'s BDSM community. But a role-playing encounter involving plastic wrap went horrifically wrong, leading to the demise of a UCLA professor, whose partner speaks out for the first time. For nearly three decades, Skip Chasey, one of Hollywood's top dealmakers, led a delicate balancing act of an existence. One Sunday last November, it all came tumbling down around him. That something tragic had occurred became known to his many friends the following morning, when on Nov. 20, 2017, Chasey posted a troubling Facebook message:...

    The Truth About Guns ^ | 04/21/18 | Dan Zimmerman
    The anti-gun left has apparently fully embraced that old saying from the late sixties and early seventies: the personal is political. It’s not enough to protest the NRA’s headquarters, call its leaders Nazis and ask how many kids have they killed today in tediously un-original chants. Now they’re attacking their homes and families. National Rifle Association lobbyist Chris Cox says his house was splashed with fake blood — twice. Then, someone made a fake website for his wife’s interior design business, altering images of artwork to show photos of child gun violence victims. Last week, two gun control activists...

    Some 42,000 students attend UCLA, and whether many of them think “toxic masculinity” is a pressing concern is unclear, if the attendance at a recent campus forum on the subject is any indication. When the UCLA Intergroup Relations Program recently hosted an event to allow the campus community to discuss “toxic masculinity,” 10 students showed up.

    The UCLA “Sex Squad,” which labels itself as an undergraduate sexual health performance group, presented “ForePlay,” a series of skits that follows three individuals exploring various sexual health topics . “ForePlay” featured a number of skits describing vulgar sexual activities hardly appropriate for performance at a public setting such as UCLA, a university that receives billions of dollars in state and federal taxpayer funding. In one portion of the show, a father and son sings a graphic song describing different types of lewd sexual behavior by males. According to the Daily Bruin, the father describes different methods of penetration, as...

    UCLA ^ | Leigh Hopper
      “Exactly how curcumin exerts its effects is not certain, but it may be due to its ability to reduce brain inflammation, which has been linked to both Alzheimer’s disease and major depression,” said Dr. Gary Small, director of geriatric psychiatry at UCLA’s Longevity Center and of the geriatric psychiatry division at the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA, and the study’s first author. The double-blind, placebo-controlled study involved 40 adults between the ages of 50 and 90 years who had mild memory complaints. Participants were randomly assigned to receive either a placebo or 90 milligrams of curcumin twice...

    UCLA researchers have designed a device that can use solar energy to inexpensively and efficiently create and store energy, which could be used to power electronic devices, and to create hydrogen fuel for eco-friendly cars. The device could make hydrogen cars affordable for many more consumers because it produces hydrogen using nickel, iron and cobalt — elements that are much more abundant and less expensive than the platinum and other precious metals that are currently used to produce hydrogen fuel. “Hydrogen is a great fuel for vehicles: It is the cleanest fuel known, it’s cheap and it puts no pollutants...

    More than a quarter of California schoolchildren between 12 and 17 believe their peers see them as “gender nonconforming,” meaning those boys are perceived as more feminine and the girls as more masculine, according to a new study that is among the first of its kind in the U.S. The study made public Wednesday found that the 27 percent of California children perceived as gender nonconforming are more than twice as likely to experience psychological distress, such as bullying, as their gender conforming counterparts. The study did not find that gender nonconforming children have statistically significant higher levels of suicide,...

    President Trump complained Sunday that the father of one of the three UCLA basketball players who were arrested in China for shoplifting had played down his role in winning their release, and that he therefore should not have interceded with China’s president. “I should have left them in jail!” the president tweeted. Trump’s tweet drew a quick backlash on social media. Many expressed incredulity that a sitting U.S. president would publicly regret having come to the aid of American citizens being held by an authoritarian government. Among Trump’s sharper critics was Rep. Adam Schiff, (D-Burbank) who tweeted back, “How can...

    LaVar Ball, whose son was one of the three UCLA basketball players detained in China on shoplifting charges last week, said “who?” when asked about President Trump’s role in getting the players released. "Who?" Ball told ESPN when asked about Trump's role. "What was he over there for? Don't tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out." Ball, the CEO of the sports apparel company Big Baller Brand, downplayed Trump’s role in securing his son LiAngelo Ball’s release. His son, along with two other players, was arrested and accused of shoplifting from a Louis...

    On Saturday at 5 p.m. at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the USC Trojans will face the UCLA Bruins in football for the 87th time since 1929. Saturday’s game falls on the 50th anniversary, to the day, of what many consider to be the biggest, best, most dramatic and most important football game played in the rivalry. That game, played on Nov. 18, 1967, would determine the city and conference (AAWU at the time, now the Pac-12) champion, the Rose Bowl representative and, ultimately, the national champion. Oh, and also the Heisman Trophy winner.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Three UCLA basketball players accused of shoplifting in China apologized Wednesday before coach Steve Alford announced they were being suspended indefinitely. LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley were described as "good young men" by Alford at a campus news conference. The coach said the trio wouldn't be allowed to suit up, practice or travel with the team while the university continues to sort out the circumstances of last week's incident in Hangzhou, China. Ball, Hill and Riley took turns acknowledging their actions and apologizing while also thanking President Donald Trump for intervening on their behalf...

The three, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley and LiAngelo Ball — younger brother of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball — also apologized to their families and their school, while thanking the Chinese cops for treating them well. “I would like to thank President Trump and the United States government for the help they provided. I am grateful to be back home and I will never make a mistake like this again. I...

    President Trump is hearing crickets from a trio of UCLA basketball players, despite his successful full-court press to get China to drop shoplifting charges against them. The three players, LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley, were arrested after being accused of stealing designer sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store next to the team’s hotel in Hangzhou. Trump, while on a tour of Asia, urged his Chinese counterpart to let them go, and may have been looking for some credit Wednesday. *snip* “Do you think the three UCLA Basketball Players will say thank you President Trump?

    As we all know, crimes like shoplifting are punished harshly by Chinese authorities, especially when committed by foreigners. The previous administration allowed Americans to languish in horrific foreign prisons for crimes far less egregious, yet President Trump wasted little time to bring up the accused UCLA players with expeditious, definitive results. Of course, the black activist left will never acknowledge President Trump's intervention in what could have been a long, drawn-out State Department negotiation that normally leaves the detained Americans in nasty jails for weeks, months, or worse. They'll probably insist President Trump was simply doing his job and probably...

    The UCLA basketball team is heading home to Los Angeles from China without star freshman LiAngelo Ball, who is accused of shoplifting and is being detained. And it may be a while before Ball rejoins them, as new evidence in his case has surfaced. ESPN is reporting that there is surveillance footage of Ball and fellow UCLA freshmen players Jalen Hill and Cody Riley shoplifting from three stores inside a retail center near the team hotel in Hangzhou, China. The players have spoken with police and are currently confined to their hotel while the investigation continues. China’s justice system moves...
