Want to figure out how to best get from Pasadena to Burbank using public transit? There soon could be an app for that. When it comes to traversing the disparate public transportation lines from Burbank to Glendale and on to La Cañada Flintridge and Pasadena, all the maps, times, costs and routes can seem overwhelming.

While browsing in an antique shop in Oregon last summer, a tiny, glass bottle filled with grains of rice caught my eye. I picked it up and read the label. “The daily ration for 750 children in 1 Near East [Armenian] Relief Orphanage is 40 pounds of rice, less than 7/8 ounce per child. For lack of this small amount, they are turning children away by the thousands. Will you help?" The label included the names of Samuel C. Lancaster as state chairman and J.J. Handsaker as director and included an address of 606 Stock Exchange Bldg., Portland, Ore. There was no date or any other information.

A City Council candidate is losing prominent endorsements and is at risk of being stripped of his seat on a city commission amid allegations that he is the author of “racist, homophobic, misogynist and threatening” YouTube comments that bear his name.

The comments - which mostly center on Armenia's geopolitical enemies by referring to them as “lazy,” “degenerate thieves,” “dirty” and more vulgar terms - were attributed to City Council candidate Zareh Sinanyan through a tangled web of online profiles that allegedly lead back to the YouTube comments made under his name.
