California primary may move


Assemblyman proposes new state rules for presidential elections
By Samantha Weigel
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

In an effort to bolster Californias presence during presidential elections and


encourage candidates to treat the most populous state as more than just a pocketbook,
local lawmakers are working to bump up the
primaries to March.
Voting for the next president could come

Kevin Mullin

sooner than one expects


after
Assemblyman
Kevin Mullin, D-South
San
Francisco,
announced legislation to
move presidential primaries to March instead
of June.
Super Tuesday is really the first national test

of a candidates strength and California


ought to be included in that national test;
we ought to be given the fact were the sixth
largest economy in the world and that one
out of every eight Americans calls themselves a Californian, Mullin said, noting
during last years election it became clear
that unfortunately, California was really an
afterthought.
His proposal would begin in 2020 and

only affect presidential-year elections by


moving the primary voting deadline to
March. For all other gubernatorial or local
races during off years, the primary would
remain in June. Mullins proposal isnt
unique as the state has bounced around, most
recently during the 2008 presidential primary, which was held in February.

Redwood City will kick off its


Sesquicentennial Celebration at the
Jan. 9 City Council meeting, marking
the first of a series of events drawing
the community together to celebrate
the citys rich history over the past

clerk, who were present at the first
meeting, according to meeting notes
held at the City Clerks Office.

Not guilty pleas in


drug deal gone bad
Medical pot deliveryman allegedly robbed
and kidnapped during off the books sale
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT

Two men pleaded not guilty Thursday to


felony charges they robbed and kidnapped a
21-year-old Belmont man in a Redwood City
drug deal gone wrong, according to the San
Mateo County District Attorneys Office.
Additional investigation revealed that the
incident started with an agreement to illegally sell an ounce of marijuana, according
to prosecutors.
Vilivuni Fono, 27, of East Palo Alto, and
Otoniel Junior Meza, 23, of Belmont, could
face life in prison, according to the District
Attorneys Office.
The alleged crimes took place in downtown Redwood City around 7:20 p.m. Dec.
22. Fono and Meza knew the victim, who
worked as a deliveryman for an online medical marijuana dispensary called Meadow
Care, according to prosecutors.
Earlier in the day, Fono arranged to illegally buy marijuana from the victim, not
through the medical dispensary. Fono drove
up to the victims girlfriends home on
Warwick Street in Redwood City that
evening and the victim got into the car with
his backpack containing marijuana, according to prosecutors.
The two began driving when Meza,
allegedly hiding in the back seat, popped up
and stuck a semiautomatic handgun to the
victims head. Meza demanded the victims
wallet and phone, then allegedly struck the

Meza allegedly tried to pull the hoodie over

and jumped out of the moving vehicle near

murder transferred to state hospital
The 26-year-old man accused of stabbing a
friend to death during an argument over a
cigarette while listening to the 2014 World

transported to the Napa State Hospital until
he returns to competency, according to the
San Mateo County District Attorneys

On Nov. 20, 2014, Jake Monahan, of San

knife charges.
According to prosecutors, Monahan and
Michael Stent, 32, were drinking and listening to the game on a radio with others at
Courthouse Square Oct. 28, 2014, when the
former asked the latter for a cigarette. Stent
declined and they began fighting near 2216
Broadway. Witnesses said the two men were
throwing patio furniture during the fight.
Stent began walking away and Monahan
allegedly stabbed him with a folding knife
he retrieved from a backpack.
Stent, wounded in the back and abdomen,

New advice: Peanuts in babys diet can prevent allergy


By Lauran Neergaard
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON New parents,


get ready to feed your babies
peanut-containing foods starting young lowers their chances of
becoming allergic.
The National Institutes of
Health issued new guidelines
Thursday saying most babies
should regularly eat those foods
starting around 6 months of age,
some as early as 4 months. Its a
major shift in dietary advice for a
country fearful of one of the most
dangerous food allergies.
Were on the cusp of hopefully
being able to prevent a large number of cases of peanut allergy,
said
Dr.
M a t t h e w
Green h awt
of the

American College of Allergy,

that wrote the guidelines.
The recommendations are based
on landmark research that found

Four charged with hate crime in


attack on mentally disabled man
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO Four black people


were charged with hate crimes
Thursday in connection with a
video broadcast live on Facebook
that showed a mentally disabled
white man being beaten and
taunted, threatened with a knife
and forced to drink from a toilet.
The assault went on for hours,
until Chicago police found the
disoriented victim walking along
a street, authorities said.
The suspects, who were jailed,
can be heard on the video using
profanities against white people

and President-elect
Donald
Trump.
Police spokesman Anthony
Guglielmi said investigators initially concluded that the 18-yearold man was singled out because
he has special needs, not
because he was white. But authorities later said the charges resulted from both the suspects use of
racial slurs and their references to
the victims disability.
Its also possible that the suspects were trying to extort something from the victims family,
police said. The mans parents
reported their son missing

Monday and told authorities they


later received text messages from
people who claimed to be holding him captive.
The victim was a classmate of
one of the attackers and initially
went with that person voluntarily, police said.
Hes traumatized by the incident, and its very tough to communicate with him at this point,
police Cmdr. Kevin Duffin said.
Excerpts of the video posted by
Chicago media outlets show the
victim with his mouth taped shut
and slumped in a corner of a
room.

down peanut butter or easy-to-gum


peanut-flavored puff snacks.
Its an important step forward,
said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of
NIHs National Institute of
Allergy and Infectious Diseases,
which appointed experts to turn
the research findings into userfriendly guidelines. When you do
desensitize them from an early
age, you have a very positive
effect.
Peanut allergy is a growing
problem, affecting about 2 percent of U.S. children who must
avoid the wide array of peanutcontaining foods or risk severe,
even life-threatening, reactions.
For years, pediatricians advised
avoiding peanuts until age 3 for
children thought to be at risk. But
the delay didnt help, and that recommendation was dropped in
2008, although parent wariness of
peanuts persists.
Its old news, wrong old news,
to wait, said Dr. Scott Sicherer,
who represented the American
Academy of Pediatrics on the
guidelines panel.

Recommendations
All babies should try other solid
foods before peanut-containing ones,
to be sure theyre developmentally
ready.
High-risk babies should have
peanut-containing foods introduced
at age 4 to 6 months after a check-up
to tell if they should have the first taste
in the doctors office, or if its OK to try
at home with a parent watching for
any reactions.
Moderate-risk babies have milder
eczema, typically treated with
over-the-counter creams.They should
start peanut-based foods around 6
months, at home.
Most babies are low-risk, and parents
can introduce peanut-based foods
along with other solids, usually around
6 months.
Building tolerance requires making
peanut-based foods part of the
regular diet, about three times a week.
Whats the evidence? First, researchers
noticed a tenfold higher rate of
peanut allergy among Jewish children
in Britain, who arent fed peanut
products during infancy, compared to
those in Israel where peanut-based
foods are common starting around
age 7 months.

people to reschedule nonessential
medical appointments and avoid the
UCLA campus and medical centers.
UCLA has said it believes the
strike is unlawful. But the schools
request for an injunction to block it
was rejected this week by the
California Public Employment
Relations Board.
UCLA said it has developed plans
to keep its campus and medical centers fully operational.
The walkout by skilled trades
workers will be followed on Tuesday
by a one-day strike against the
entire University of California
system and five UC hospitals by
thousands of clerical and administrative support workers.

U.S. intel chief says


Russia interfered in
presidential election
By Eileen Sullivan and Richard Lardner

Ryan: Lawmakers will act this


year on replacing health law
By Alan Fram
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Lawmakers will act


this year on bills not simply repealing
President Barack Obamas health care
law but replacing it as well, House
Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday.
The remarks by Ryan, R-Wis., suggested a faster schedule than some had
expected on reshaping the nations
health care system. While Republicans
have said they plan to vote this year on
dismantling Obamas law, Ryan went a
step further, saying they also would
write legislation to replace it in 2017.

It wont be easy.
Despite unifying for years behind the
notion of dismantling Obamas 2010
law, Republicans have yet to rally
behind a plan for replacing it, stymied
by divisions over how to do it and pay
for the changes.
Our legislating on Obamacare, our
repealing and replacing and transitioning, the legislating will occur this
year, Ryan told reporters, using a
nickname for the law.
Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong
said by legislating, Ryan meant lawmakers will write legislation and vote
on it.

With Donald Trump set to become


president on Jan. 20, Republicans running Congress now face the political
imperative to deliver on their oftrepeated promises to erase and replace
the health law.
Democrats, who helped Obama enact
the law without any GOP votes, are
defending Obamas overhaul but are
outnumbered in the House and Senate.
No. 2 Senate GOP leader John
Cornyn of Texas said writing a new
health care law would be a top priority
in his chamber but stopped short of
saying senators would complete that
this year.

WASHINGTON Brushing aside Donald Trumps dismissiveness, the nations intelligence chief insisted Thursday
that U.S. agencies are more confident than ever that Russia
interfered in Americas recent presidential election. And he
called the former Cold War foe an existential threat to the
nation.
Did Russian hacking sway the results? Theres no way for
U.S. agencies to know, said James Clapper, the director of
national intelligence.
Asked about the possible effect of the disclosure of private
information stolen by hackers, Clapper said, The intelligence community cant gauge the impact it had on the choices the electorate made. But he did say Russian hacking did
not change any vote tallies.
Clappers testimony to the Senate Armed Services
Committee was short on concrete evidence of Russian activities, but it raised the stakes in the intelligence communitys
standoff with Trump. Clapper indicated the agencies he leads
would not back down in their assessment, even if that threatens a prolonged crisis of confidence with their next commander in chief.
That puts the pressure back on Trump, who has raised the
possibility of more positive relations with Russia and has
repeatedly disparaged the U.S. intelligence agencies. He will
be briefed Friday on the classified evidence concerning
Russian interference.
Shortly after Thursdays hearing, news leaked that Trump
would soon name former Republican Sen. Dan Coats of
Indiana to replace Clapper after the new president takes office.
The intelligence agencies classified report, which was
shared with President Barack Obama on Thursday, identifies
multiple motives for Russias interference, Clapper said, but
he did not provide details.
The Washington Post, citing anonymous U.S. officials,
reported Thursday that intelligence agencies have identified
parties who delivered stolen Democratic emails to WikiLeaks.
The officials also said there were disparities between efforts to
infiltrate Democratic and Republican networks, and said the
U.S. intercepted communications in which Russian officials
celebrated Trumps victory.

Trump selects former Sen.
Coats for top intelligence post
WASHINGTON President-elect Donald Trump has
selected former Indiana Sen. Dan Coats to lead the Office of
the Director of National Intelligence, a
role that would thrust him into the center
of the intelligence community that
Trump has publicly challenged, a person
with knowledge of the decision said
Thursday.
Coats served as a member of the Senate
Intelligence Committee before retiring
from Congress last year. If confirmed by
the Senate, he would oversee the umbrelDan Coats
la office created after 9/11 to improve
coordination of U.S. spy and law enforcement agencies.
The person with knowledge of Trumps decision was not
authorized to discuss the pick publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.
Since winning the election, Trump has repeatedly challenged intelligence officials assessments that Russia interfered with the election on his behalf, setting up an unusually public battle with the spy agencies. On Friday, senior
intelligence officials will try to justify their claims when
they brief Trump on the findings of a full report into the
Russian hacking of Democratic groups.

Recalling Syria red line,


Kerry says U.S. didnt back down
WASHINGTON Touting his four years as secretary of
state, John Kerry on Thursday attempted to explain one of
the most contentious moments in
American diplomacy during his tenure:
President Barack Obamas failure to
enforce his red line warning to Syria
about using chemical weapons.
In a news conference meant to promote
his achievements, Kerry said that Obama
didnt backtrack in 2013 on his ultimatum to Syrian President Bashar Assad not
to attack rebels or civilians with his
John Kerry
chemical weapons arsenal. Kerry said
this unfair perception nevertheless hurt U.S. credibility.
The elaborate explanation of events more than three
years ago reflected the lingering importance that many of
the Obama administrations critics, as well as some international allies, ascribe to the episode.

Trump, with two tweets, helps


push GOP reversal on ethics
By Ken Thomas
and Julie Bykowicz
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON Every president


taps a legislative affairs director to
work with Congress. President-elect
Donald Trump appears ready to use a
legislative whip like none other:
Twitter.
On the opening day of Congress,
Trump demonstrated the power of his
18.5-million Twitter followers and the
clout of his populist credentials. With
just a couple of tweets, the presidentelect helped achieve what GOP leaders
could not the night before, successfully
pressuring House Republicans to
reverse course on a plan to essentially
scuttle an independent congressional
ethics board.
The move, only hours before
Congress was sworn in, likely offered
an early preview of how Trump intends
to use his tech-savvy bully pulpit to
persuade lawmakers who share his party
but not all of his policy priorities. If
Tuesdays tactic is an example, the days

Virtually everything he does is a


different style than Washington is used to. ...

of private back-channel negotiations


and behind-the-scenes arm-twisting
may be giving way to a new era of lobbying by social media shaming.
Virtually everything he does is a different style than Washington is used
to, former House Speaker Newt
Gingrich said of Trumps lobbying
style. Hes going to be very public,
very aggressive.
By Trumps standards, the tweets that
piled pressure on lawmakers were relatively mild.
After House Republicans voted in a
closed-door session on Monday
evening a federal holiday to
undercut the independent Office of
Congressional Ethics, government
watchdogs and Democratic lawmakers
railed against the move and people

began calling their representatives.


House Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority
Leader Kevin McCarthy had opposed
the changes, fearing exactly the kind of
backlash that emerged.
Then Trump weighed in with two
Twitter messages Tuesday morning,
writing, With all that Congress has to
work on, do they really have to make
the weakening of the Independent
Ethics Watchdog, as unfair as it may be,
their number one act and priority.
The incoming president urged fellow
Republicans to focus on top agenda
items like a tax overhaul, health care
and so many other things of far greater
importance! His tweet ended with
#DTS a reference to drain the
swamp, a popular catch-phrase during
his outsider presidential campaign.

Trump is using campaign-style name-calling on Congress


By Laurie Kellman
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON President-elect
Donald Trump is shifting the namecalling that helped drive his campaign
victories over lyin, low energy
and crooked opponents to the legislative arena, where hes now mocking Democrats as clowns trying to
escape blame for a troubled health care
law.

The Democrats, led by head clown


Chuck Schumer, know how bad
Obamacare is and what a mess they are
in, Trump tweeted Thursday. The GOPled Congress is seeking to overturn
President Barack Obamas signature
policy but is far from unified behind a
replacement.
It was the second time in as many
days that Trump directed the insult at
Democrats, and a clear sign he doesnt
intend to conform to the often, but not

always,
polite
decorum
of
Washington-speak.
Democratic Senate leader Sen. Chuck
Schumer, an adept message crafter and
negotiator in his own right, retorted:
Republicans should stop clowning
around with Americas health care.
Dont #MakeAmericaSickAgain.
The exchange comes as the new
Republican Congress queues up other
proposed policy changes on taxes,
regulations and more.

Driverless cars
Other voices

Sacramento Bee

or all of President-elect Donald


Trumps campaign promises
about bringing back millions
of jobs to middle America starting in
2017, this year is shaping up to be
one of the machine, not the human.
Articial intelligence is almost
ready for prime time and the impact
will be felt a lot sooner than many
people think. For proof, look no further than the burgeoning industry for
driverless cars.
Merrill Lynch is projecting that
fully autonomous taxis could account
for more than 40 percent of all new
vehicle sales within the next two
decades, potentially putting millions
of cab drivers and truck drivers out of
work. And thats to say nothing of the
highly automated factories where
these vehicles will likely be built.
Car ownership will begin to move
from something personal to something people think of as an Uber-like
service, a notion thats generally
shared by old-line automakers such as
Ford and upstarts such as Tesla.
Google is shooting for 2020 to
start selling its autonomous vehicles.
Ford says its rolling out driverless
cars for a ride-sharing service by
2021. Tesla has similar plans. The
industry is expected to balloon to a
$42 billion global market by 2025
and only grow from there.

So far, 20 companies have jumped


at the chance to test some 130 driverless cars on Californias roads. They
all agreed to apply for a special permit from the Department of Motor
Vehicles, and to abide by rules that
require a driver with a clean record to
be present at all times and for malfunctions to be reported to the state.
But the question now is, can
California, with its regulations, keep
this going in 2017 and beyond?
Normally, this wouldnt even be
concern for this state, with its long
track record of fostering innovation.
But with Ubers abrupt departure for
Arizona in December, the result of a
silly feud with regulators over ling
for a permit to operate its driverless
Volvos in San Francisco, its a question that must be asked and answered.
Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, of
course, sees Ubers pending road tests
near Phoenix as a sign his state is
paving the way to successfully pilfer more tech businesses from
California. Ducey unfairly claims
California puts the brakes on innovation and change with more bureaucracy and more regulation.
Californias regulations for
autonomous vehicles arent exactly
onerous, with a $150 fee and 72-hour
wait for a permit. The rules are
designed to ensure public safety,

while also allowing for innovation.


The rules though seemingly not onerous, might as well be an encyclopedia
compared to the two-page executive
order Ducey signed last year authorizing the technology on Arizonas
roads.
And California rules certainly are
more prescriptive than those of
Pennsylvania, where Uber has been
letting customers hail driverless cars,
or Florida, where autonomous vehicles can operate on public roads without a driver behind the wheel.
Michigan went a step further when
Gov. Rick Snyder signed bills that
will let companies test vehicles without steering wheels or pedals.
Dearborn-based Ford, with its eet of
recongured Fusion Hybrids, is ready
to do just that.
The truth is Uber pulling its Volvos
from California isnt a huge deal. Its
only 16 cars, after all, and Ubers
argument about why it didnt need a
permit is shaky at best.
But the dust-up should serve as a
reminder to regulators and the
Legislature to tread carefully on innovation. California needs to maintain
its commanding presence in whats
sure to be one of the biggest industries of the coming decades. Uber has
responsibility here, too. Even in the
new world Uber envisions and despite
its image as an innovator that breaks
the rules, protecting public safety is a
must.

Letters to the editor


Strengthening the principles
of educational institutions
Editor,
During the primaries and campaign,
President-elect Donald Trump took
positions that constitute a challenge to
the education and future of thousands of
students throughout the schools, colleges and universities in California.
Fear for the future of students is real,
provoking educational leaders to be
proactive regarding the protections for
students based upon the philosophical
and ethical principles of the institution. The Board of Trustees of the San
Mateo Community College District
carefully examined its basic values,
determining their alignment with the
ideal of social justice and stated them
in a document approved unanimously
by the board. Whatever circumstance
arises that might affect students lives
and educational opportunities, those
principles will guide the actions of the
district.
Furthermore, many citizens are concerned about protections for the democratic processes of this country,
whether related to the individual-centered values of a democracy, laws that
ensure due process and basic rights or

The strength of democracy always
depends markedly upon the veracity

Organization executive committee


member Mustafa Barghouti rejected
John Kerrys anti-Jewish parameters.
This rejection was based on the Arab
position that Kerrys speech wasnt
anti-Jewish enough, because it denies
Arabs the right to freely immigrate to
Israel and swamp the only Jewish state
with Muslims. Considering that Israel
is about 1/640 the size of Islamic lands
that already exist in the 57 Islamic
countries of record,you dont have to
be an Einstein to figure out that the
Arab plan is to destroy the only Jewish
state. If you look at how many millions of Muslims, Yazidis, Christians,
Jews and others have been murdered in
Islamic countries in the last 70 years
or so, you can appreciate Israels vulnerability. Why cant seemingly educated people like President Obama figure that out? On the other hand, as
someone who did little himself to stop
some of these massacres when he could
have, the murder of another 6 million
Jews probably wouldnt interrupt his
golf game either. Then theres that
Nobel Peace Prize. Hmmm.

Lots of ifs, but an ice


rink win-win possible

proposal to build an ice rink facility in


Burlingame is a win-win on many fronts and
while it took some heavy lifting to get that proposal ready for the prime-time stage, there is still a lot
more lifting to get it done.
Part of that is the moving parts around the idea, along
with the interaction between the cities of San Mateo and
Burlingame. The two cities are neighbors but ofcials
within dont necessarily work with each as often as they
do with other cities.
The win-win component
might seem to be the fact that
there is an ice rink proposal
on the Mid-Peninsula after the
closure of rinks in San Mateo
and Belmont. Thats true, but
in this particular plan, the
win-win is that Burlingame
will get a good use for its 12acre site in Bayside Park and
golfers who use the current
driving range can head a bit
south to San Mateo to use the
range at Poplar Creek. That
will bolster the revenue for
San Mateos range after it was
revealed last year that the city has to provide a subsidy of
a few hundred thousand dollars a year to the golf course,
even after some improvements to the course more than a
decade ago. There was also some nascent discussion of the
future of the course which takes up 105 acres on the
Bayfront right next to Coyote Point. Some ideas were
other types of recreational uses such as ball elds or even
an ice rink.
Putting an ice rink facility at a Burlingame driving
range may be just what Poplar Creek needs in that it will
drive new customers there and keep the use as it is.
There is also the matter of $8 million, which is the
amount of money the owners of the Bridgepointe
Shopping Center recently offered the city to allow it to
eliminate the ice rink facility there. That amount came
after a $3 million offer, which was soundly rejected. The
history behind the offers is long, but it essentially boils
down to language in the shopping centers master plan
that aimed to keep an ice rink there but offered a loophole
to offer another recreational amenity if the ice rink was
shut down. The fact that the master plan language was not
ironclad has been a point of contention but that is largely under the bridge by now. So, the monetary offer would
be in exchange for allowing a new retail use at
Bridgepointe.
Ice rink supporters have proven to be successful at
organizing and rallying since the rinks closure in 2013
and are keeping a watchful eye on the process. At rst,
their stance was that there was no other option but to get
that rink open but, because of recent developments, they
seem to be open to a compromise with the Burlingame
site. However, the offer is not even close to being in
hand as it still must go in front of the City Council for
approval and then it must be decided where the money
should go.
For ice rink proponents, theres a lot of hope right
now. A chance. A possibility. And its because of responsible and responsive city leadership trying to navigate
out of a lose-lose situation in which the rink remains
closed, the shopping center has no extra retail and the
city gets no sales tax revenue from a vacant building.
If ice rink proponents had their way and in this case,
after all their effort, they just might then all the
money might go to the Burlingame ice rink plan. The
president of the newly formed nonprot Mid-Peninsula
Ice Rink Foundation, Michael Strambi, who submitted
the proposal, said constructing a new facility would cost
around $12 million and $16 million, so $8 million would
go a long way with that effort. Doing so would create a
regional rink in partnership with two cities and that
process must be followed, along with the process to
determine the best use of the Burlingame driving range
site. Both will take some time but it seems the political
will is there.
At the end of this process, if the Burlingame City
Council moves toward a rink at that site, there will be a
joint-use agreement if San Mateo ofcials decide to allocate the money they receive from Bridgepointe, and if
they decide to receive it in lieu of a rink at the shopping
center. If San Mateo decides to pony up the money to
another city, ofcials may also want to see if they can get
a share of the revenue as part of the agreement if it proves
to be a protable venture.
Still lots of ifs. But I guarantee that agreement will be
ironclad that is, of course, if all the moving parts
come together.

Stocks slip as banks fall and retailers plunge


By Marley Jay

DOW JONES INDUSTRIALS

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK Stocks slipped


Thursday as interest rates
dropped and banks took sharp
losses. Department stores tumbled as Macys and Kohls
plunged following weak holidayseason reports that led the chains
to cut their profit forecasts.
After a solid but uninspiring
report on private hiring in
December, bond prices jumped
and yields fell, which sent banks
down. The dollar declined. Other
industries that have climbed
since the election, including
industrial and basic materials
companies, also slipped. The
Dow Jones industrial average was
down as much as 131 points at
midday, but the losses later eased
as shares of companies that pay
big dividends traded higher.
Health care and technology
stocks edged higher, and the
Nasdaq composite recovered from
an early loss to set another alltime high.
Stocks have surged in the last
two months because investors
expect faster economic growth
after President-elect Donald
Trump takes office. Kate Warne,
an investment strategist for
Edward Jones, said they may be
waiting for a while. She thinks
Trumps proposed tax cuts and

The payroll report reinforced

policy changes actually taking
place yet, she said. Warne added
that investors are also not sure if
Trumps trade and immigration
proposals will slow down economic growth.

cent, to 5,487.94. The Russell


2000 index of small-company
stocks surrendered 16.02 points,
or 1.2 percent, to 1,371.94.
The day started with a mixed
report on hiring. Payroll processing company ADP said private U. S. companies added
153,000 jobs in December. That
was fewer than analysts expected
and a bit less than they had in the
months before. The government
will release its own report on the
job market on Friday.
Macys said it will cut 10,000
jobs, and both it and Kohls
reported declines in a key sales
measure for November and
December. The job cuts will be
part of a restructuring for Macys

that will include selling properties and continuing to close


stores.
Macys tumbled $4.98, or 13.9
percent, to $30. 86. The stock
traded above $72 as recently as
July 2015. Kohls slumped
$9.87, or 19 percent, to $42.01.
Nordstrom and J.C. Penney both
sank 7 percent.
Amazon rose $23.27, or 3.1
percent, to $780.45 as investors
interpreted the latest trouble for
traditional stores as another sign
that the online retail giant is
continuing to expand at their
expense.
Bond prices jumped. The yield
on the 10-year Treasury note fell
to 2.35 percent from 2.44 per-

cent. That sent banks to steep


losses, as lower bond yields
mean lower interest rates and
reduced profits from mortgages
and other loans. Citigroup lost
$1.07, or 1.7 percent, to $60.34
and Fifth Third Bancorp declined
78 cents, or 2. 8 percent, to
$26.64.
The dollar continued to slip
below its recent 14-year highs. It
fell to 115.62 yen from 117.60
yen. The euro rose to $1.0590
from $1.0467.
With the dollar skidding, the
price of gold jumped $16, or 1.4
percent, to $1,181.30 an ounce.
Silver gained 9 cents to $16.64
an ounce. That sent mining companies higher. Newmont Mining
gained $1.61, or 4.6 percent, to
$36.57 and Hecla Mining rose 26
cents, or 4.7 percent, to $5.83.
Copper prices edged down 2
cents to $2.54 a pound.
Drugmaker
Alexion
Pharmaceuticals jumped after the
company said it wont restate
any of its earnings. The company
had been examining sales of its
drug Soliris, but said it didnt
find improper revenue recognition and that its sales were valid.
Alexion did say it found weaknesses in internal controls.
The company began examining
its sales practices in November,
and the following month its CEO
and chief financial officer left.

Toyota is latest Trump target over Mexico production plans


By Tom Krisher
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DETROIT President-elect
Donald Trump has trained his
sights on Toyota in his latest
effort to badger a company into
building its products in the U.S.
rather than Mexico.
Trump tweeted Thursday that if
the Japanese automaker goes
ahead with plans to build the compact Corolla in a new factory in
Mexico instead of the U.S., it
faces a big border tax when it
ships the cars north.
The threat echoed those targeted
at Ford Motor Co. and General
Motors Co. Trump has repeatedly

threatened Ford with a 35 percent


tax on small cars made in Mexico,
and this week he called out GM for
importing cars from south of the
border. He also has made similar
threats against companies outside
the auto industry.
Nearly all automakers build
small cars in Mexico to take
advantage of lower wages.
Consumers generally pay lower
prices for small cars, making it
difficult to cover higher labor
costs in the U.S.
Trumps tweet incorrectly stated
the location of Toyotas new
Mexican plant its Guanajuato,
not Baja but hes correct in saying that Toyota has plans to build

the Corolla in Mexico. The


automaker announced the new factory in April of 2015, saying it
will create 2,000 jobs.
Corolla production is to start in
2019 with a new model and would
be moved from a factory in
Cambridge, Ontario. Toyota also
would keep building Corollas at a
U. S. factory in Blue Springs,
Mississippi. The Ontario plant
will build more higher-priced midsize vehicles.
Toyota Motor Corp. didnt
directly respond to Trumps tax
threat, but said Thursday in a statement that production and employment in the U.S. will not decrease
due to the Guanajuato plant.

Toyota said it has invested over


$21.9 billion in its U.S. operations, including 10 manufacturing
facilities, 1,500 dealerships and
136,000 employees.
Toyota looks forward to collaborating with the Trump administration to serve in the best interests of consumers and the automotive industry, the companys
statement said.
On Tuesday, Ford announced
that it had scrapped plans to build
a new $1.6 billion small-car factory in San Luis Potosi, Mexico,
and will instead invest some of
that money in a U.S. factory near
Detroit that will build new electric
and autonomous vehicles. But

Ford still plans to shift production of the compact Focus to


Mexico by adding it to an existing factory that builds midsize
cars. In announcing the Michigan
expansion, Ford CEO Mark Fields
noted Trumps promise to make
the U. S. more competitive by
lowering taxes and easing regulations.
Just hours before Fords
announcement, Trump used Twitter
to jump on General Motors,
threatening the company with a
border tax for making Cruze small
cars in Mexico and shipping them
to the U.S. GM responded by saying the vast majority of Cruzes are
made at a plant in Ohio.

M-A still fit to be tied


By Nathan Mollat
DAILY JOURNAL STAFF

Menlo-Atherton boys soccer coach Leo


Krupnik believes he has the team necessary
to defend the Bears back-to-back Peninsula
Athletic League Bay Division titles.
But the Bears will need to play with a lot
more discipline than what they showed
against visiting Monta Vista-Cupertino on
a frigid Thursday night in Atherton, which
finished in a 1-1 tie the third 1-1 draw
the Bears have had this season.
When keeping their shape, the Bears controlled possession and built up solid attacks
on the Matadors defense.
But when M-A dropped its guard for a sec-

ond, Monta Vista was ready to pounce. At


times in both halves, the M-A midfield
seemed to be disconnected from either
offense or defense. It was either pushing too
far up on offense or dropping too deep
defensively, and the Matadors were more
than willing to fill the void in the center of
field.
Guys stopped running. Losing their
heads, Krupnik said. Were not mentally
strong enough right now.
Early in the match, the Bears dominated
possession as left fullback Ulises Cisneros
controlled the left flank. Working with Jean
Claverie, the Bears made several dangerous
forays into the Matadors end. A couple minutes into the game, Cisneros made a pass

down the line for Claverie, who held off a


defender and cut in toward the goal. His
sharp cross pinged around in the penalty
box briefly before the ball was cleared.
Moments later, the Matadors showed what
kind of offense it could muster as they quickly mounted an attack, getting a shot off that
M-A goalkeeper Victor Escatel made while
backpedaling.
Claverie, however, kept the pressure on
Monta Vista, making a couple more dangerous runs at the Matadors defense, at one
point colliding with the Monta Vista goalkeeper as he chased down a 50-50 ball.
In the 13th minute, M-A had the best scoring opportunity up to that point. This time,

Raiders Mack, Texans Clowney take center stage

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ALAMEDA For as many similarities as


there are between Jadeveon Clowney and
Khalil Mack as the two dominant pass rushers taken in the top five of the 2014 draft,
there are the stark differences as well.
Clowney burst onto the scene as the No. 1
overall high school recruit who went on to
dominate the high-powered SEC and
become the top pick in the draft. Macks
ascension was far slower as the overlooked
two-star high school player who was forced
to go to low-profile Buffalo, where he

Bruce Irvin, Raiders linebacker on teammate Khalil Mack

developed into an NFL prospect who seems


to get better by the week.
While Clowney entered the NFL with far
more hype as the No. 1 overall pick in
Houston, Mack has been the far more productive pro ever since being drafted fifth by
the Oakland Raiders.
He was a first-team All-Pro last year at
both linebacker and defensive end, leads the
NFL with 26 sacks the past two years and is
a leading contender for Defensive Player of

the Year.
The guys a walking Hall of Famer, the
best in the business, teammate Bruce Irvin
said. Im blessed to be able to suit up with
him week in and week out.
Clowney and Mack will share the big
stage Saturday in Houston in the wild-card
opener between the Raiders (12-4) and
Texans (9-7). With both teams dealing with
injuries at quarterback that have forced
Oakland rookie Connor Cook into his first

career start and previously benched Brock


Osweiler back for his first playoff start, the
defenses could well decide this game.
Clowney has taken more time to develop
into a star with the Texans as injuries limited him to four games as a rookie, his season
was cut short last year by another injury
that kept him out of the Texans playoff
game and he has delivered only 10 1/2 sacks
in 31 career games fewer than Mack has
had in each of the past two seasons.
But Clowney has developed into one of
the top run defenders in the league and

Sharks let two-goal lead slip away, lose to Wild


By Rick Eymer

Wild 5, Sharks 4

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SAN JOSE Mikko Koivu scored backto-back goals midway through the third
period and the Minnesota Wild overcame a
late two-goal deficit to beat the San Jose
Sharks 5-4 on Thursday night.
The teams combined for five goals in the
third, with Joel Ward and Patrick Marleau
putting San Jose ahead 4-2 in the first five
minutes before Eric Staal scored once and
Koivu twice to bring the Wild back. Koivu
scored twice in 1:55, with the go-ahead goal
coming with 9:42 left.
Minnesota got its seventh straight victo-

ry on the road. Staal also had two goals and


Zach Parise scored for the Wild, who were
playing their first game since their 12-game
winning streak was snapped by Columbus.
Devan Dubnyk saved 30 shots in his first
appearance in San Jose in over two years,
when he was with the Phoenix Coyotes.
Joonas Donskoi and Joe Pavelski also
scored for the Sharks, who lost their third
straight, matching a season high. Martin
Jones made 21 saves.
Following a quiet first period, in which
the goalies rejected a combined 13 shots,
the Sharks scored twice to take a 2-0 edge

midway through the second. Donskoi


scored after taking a pass from Kevin
Labanc on a wide-open shot as defenders
paid more attention to Pavelski, who netted
the second goal off a faceoff.
Staal scored a power-play goal with 1:01
left in the second period to cut the lead to 21.
Parise scored early in the third period, off
a rebound, to tie it.
Ward scored off a faceoff just under two
minutes later and then Marleau scored, with
an assist from Ward, 42 seconds after that.
The Wild responded with three unanswered
goals over the final 15 minutes. Staal netted
his second of the game and Koivu scored off
a rebound.

NOTES: Staal recorded the 53rd multigoal game. ... Parise has points in three of
the four games since missing a pair of
games to injury. ... Wild F Charlie Coyle
has eight points in his last five games. ...
Sharks F Mikkel Boedker was a healthy

Tyler Parsons stopped all five
shots he faced in the tiebreaker
and the United States outlasted
Canada 5-4 on Thursday night to
win the world junior hockey title.
The game was decided in the
five-round shootout after a 20minute overtime period.
On Wednesday in the semifinals,
Terry scored on all three of his
shootout attempts to give the
United States a 4-3 victory over
Russia. He beat the goalie between
the legs on all four attempts.
Before the shootout, I was
thinking about trying something
different (than shooting between
the legs), Terry said. As I came
down, I decided I just had to try to
go five-hole.
The University of Denver forward and Anaheim draft pick beat
Carter Hart in the fourth round of
the shootout. Parsons then

missed a chance to end it in the
fifth round, and Nicholas Roy mishandled the puck on Canadas last

The teams met for the fourth
time in the championship game,
with the Americans also winning

record 16 titles in 2015.
Im proud of what Ive done in
this tournament, but its so hard to

defenseman Thomas Chabot, the
tournament MVP. I put everything I could into representing my
country as well as I could and help
the team win. I may have got the
MVP, but Im heartbroken. Its
very difficult right now.
The Americans overcame two
two-goal deficits to force overtime.
It was such an up-and-down
game, Terry said. We were down
two goals twice. I think when we

were down 2-0 and came back to tie


it we got some confidence because
it sucked to go down two goals
right away. But, we knew as a team
that no matter how we played, we
had the confidence to get back
into the game.
Bouyed by the first near-sellout
crowd at the more than 21,000seat Bell Centre, Thomas Chabot
and Jeremy Lauzon opened the

NEW YORK Two dozen high


school football players died in
recent years from traumatic brain
and spinal cord injuries, and the
annual death count has been growing slightly, according to a new

But such deaths remain rare, and
are far lower than in decades past.
Also, its not clear whether the
recent uptick is the result of more
widespread attention and better
reporting, said Kristen Kucera, the
studys lead author.
The study, which examined the
years 2005 through 2014, also
counted four such deaths in college football players over the
same period.
Most deaths occurred during
games and were tied to tackling or
being tackled. The study echoes
other research that found such
deaths were most common in running backs and linebackers.

Rivalry headlines start of Supercross season


By John Marshall
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Motocross has seen its share of fierce


rivalries. In the sports early days, it was
Bob Hannah and Kent Howerton. The next
generation saw Jeff Matiasevich and Damon
Bradshaw going at each other every race.
Chad Reed and James Stewart took center
stage once the 2000s arrived.
The budding rivalry between Ryan
Dungey and Ken Roczen, polar opposites
on and off the track, has a chance to be one
of the best in the sports history and drive
its popularity into the future.
Were very respectful to each other, but
were very different, Roczen said.
Different personality, different everything.
Dungey is the steady veteran.
In 2010, he became the first rider in
motocross history to sweep the 450cc
Supercross and outdoor titles as a rookie.
The 27-year-old from Belle Plaine,
Minnesota, went on to win two more outdoor titles and two more in Supercross.
Dungey also had a rivalry with Ryan
Villopoto that helped push the sport to new
levels of popularity. Villopoto surprisingly
retired on the opening day of the 2015
Supercross season, leaving Dungey without
a clear-cut rival.
Roczen has slipped into that role nicely.
The 22-year-old German got his career off
to a roaring start, winning his first 450
Supercross race in 2014 on his way to finishing third in the overall series race.
Roczen went on to win the 2014 outdoor
title, took the 2015 Monster Energy Cup

USA TODAY SPORTS

Ryan Dungey burst on the Supercross scene as a rookie in 2010, winning both the
Supercross and outdoor titles. He is now being pushed by German Ken Roczen.
and picked up his second outdoor championship last year.
The rivalry between Dungey and Roczen
moves on to its next chapter on Saturday,
when Dungey will enter the Supercross
opener at Angel Stadium in Anaheim,
California, as the reigning series champion.
Kens a good rider and anytime you race,

hes going to give you a fight, Dungey


said. Thats just the racer in him and
myself. Its definitely challenging to
myself, battling like that, but it also good
to have that. Thats why its racing.
Dungey and Roczen have a few similarities, including once having the same trainer
and living on the same street.
But thats about it.

Dungeys image is that of the AllAmerican he was the first motocross rider
to appear on a Wheaties box with a
relentless work ethic, someone who takes
an almost machine-like approach to racing
and training. Though hes been criticized at
times for his methodical approach to racing, the results are hard to argue against; he
rarely crashes out of a race and is one of the
most consistent riders in the sports history.
Give it up to the guy. Not everybody is
like that, Roczen said. He gets the job
done, has a lot of championships, hes consistent, so I give him that. But other than
that, hes just a get-work-done rider.
Roczen is the carefree European hotshot,
his personality more on the outspoken side,
his riding style in a flashier vein. He still
works hard wouldnt be one of the sports
top riders if he didnt but likes to add a
little pizazz into everything he does.
Hes the complete opposite of me,
Roczen said. I literally enjoy riding dirt
bikes. A lot of riders in our industry actually
dont, but thats not me. I like to have fun
with my training, everything I do.
For all their differences, Dungey and
Roczen have one big thing in common:
Respect for one another.
While theyre not going out to dinner or
hanging at each others houses, theres a
mutual regard for their differing approaches
toward the same result, not to mention the
competitiveness.
We both have respect for each other and
thats the bottom line, Dungey said. We
both know were going to go out there and
give it our best and may the better man
win.

Tiger Woods adds Dubai to complete busy start to year


KAPALUA, Hawaii After playing one
tournament in 15 months, Tiger Woods feels
good enough to schedule four events in five
weeks that cover opposite sides of the country and the world.
Woods filled out the rest of his early schedule Thursday by saying he would return to the
Omega Dubai Desert Classic.
He had not played since August 2015 while
recovering from two back surgeries, returning
last month in the Bahamas at the Hero World
Challenge. Woods made 24 birdies in 72
holes, but he finished 15th in a 17-man field.
I am working hard to sharpen my game for
2017, and my goal is simple: to win, Woods
said in a blog on his website.

Woods makes his 2017


debut at Torrey Pines on
Jan. 26-29, and then he
will cross 12 time zones
to play in Dubai. After a
week off, he returns to
California for the Genesis
Open at Riviera, and the
following week heads to
Tiger Woods Florida for the Honda
Classic.
The last time the 41-year-old Woods played
four times in five weeks was early in 2013
the Match Play in Arizona, followed by three
of the four tournaments that made up the
Florida swing.
Wh at p l eas ed h i m ab o ut h i s ret urn at
t h e Bah amas , b ey o n d h i s 2 4 b i rdi es ,

was h i s h eal t h .
The only doubt I had was the physicality
of the round the length and duration
because I hadnt been able to practice or play
much golf, Woods said.
Woods said he and his two children were hit
with a virus before Thanksgiving, and he ran
out of energy toward the end of the tournament. He attributed some of the energy loss to
be host of the Hero World Challenge and having other functions to attend.
I know many people doubted whether I
would play competitive golf again, and to be
honest, even I wasnt sure, Woods said. My
love for the game never left. Its just that the
body would not allow me to play. Now my
body is allowing me to do it again.
Woods said he still was testing equipment

because Nike announced last year will no


longer be making clubs and golf balls. Woods
recently signed a deal with Bridgestone Golf
to plays its ball, noting that Bridgestone
once make the Nike golf ball he has used
since 2000. He said he likely would keep
using his Nike irons and his old Scotty
Cameron putter.
Woods, whose 79 PGA Tour victories are
three short of the career mark set by Sam
Snead, is an eight-time winner at Torrey Pines
(including the 2008 U.S. Open). He last
played there in 2014 when he missed the 54hole cut. A week later in Dubai, where he had
won twice, Woods tied for 41st. That year was
the start of back trouble that led to the first of
his three surgeries and caused him to miss the
Masters for the first time.

Frei, Manneh, hoping for citizenship, on U.S. training roster


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO Seattle goalkeeper Stefan


Frei and Vancouver midfielder Kekuta
Manneh, both in the process of completing
U.S. citizenship requirements, are among 32
players who will report
to the first U.S. training
camp since Bruce Arena
replaced
Jurgen
Klinsmann as coach.
Frei, 30, relocated from
Switzerland with his family in the 1990s. He
played his high school
ball at De La Salle in
Stefan Frei
Concord, before going
on to play for Cal in college. He would give
Arena another veteran option in addition to
Colorados Tim Howard, projected to be sidelined for four months following November
surgery on his right leg, and Brad Guzan,
who on Monday made his first appearance
since August for Middlesbrough.
In my view we have about eight goal-

Continued from page 11
it was Cisneros who made a long run down
the left sideline, running onto the ball at
the end line. He cut back into the field of
play and around a defender before sending a
cross to the front of the goal. Brian Pena
was there to get a weak header on the ball,
but it was placed well, forcing the Monta
Vista goalkeeper to make a diving save to
keep it out of the net.
Two minutes later, the Bears struck. Pena
won a ball in the midfield before turning and

keepers were going to be looking at


throughout the year, Arena said Thursday
during a Facebook Live session, mentioning the five invited to camp along with
Ethan Horvath and William Yarbrough.
Certainly Tim Howard and Brad Guzan
would have the edge at this point in time.
Manneh, a 22-year-old Gambian, moved
to Texas in 2010.
Veterans Michael Bradley, Jozy Altidore,
Jermaine Jones, Alejandro Bedoya and Chris
Wondolowski also are on the roster that will
report to Carson, California, starting Jan.
10 ahead of exhibitions against Serbia on
Jan. 29 at San Diego and versus Jamaica on
Feb. 3 at Chattanooga, Tennessee. Europebased players will return when World Cup
qualifying resumes March 24 against
Honduras.
Seattle forward Clint Dempsey, sidelined
since Aug. 21 by an irregular heartbeat, was
not included.
Clints making great progress, Arena
said. Hes not fully ready to come into our
camp, but we really believe by March hell

be ready to play in Seattle and be a possibility for our qualifiers.


Arena coached the U.S. from 1998-2006
and was hired in November after the
Americans lost to Mexico and Costa Rica in
the first two games of the final round of qualifying. He announced 11 players for his
training camp roster on Dec. 16, a group
that included defender DaMarcus Beasley,
midfielder Benny Feilhaber and forwards
Juan Agudelo and Gyasi Zardes.
Several players return following long
absences: defender Chad Marshall was last at
a national team training camp in January
2010, midfielder Dax McCarty in January
2011 and Feilhaber in January 2014.
This is an opportunity that Ive been
waiting for, Feilhaber, who turns 32 on
Jan. 19, said in a statement. Im appreciative that Bruce has given me the chance to
prove myself again on the international
stage. Every player is entering January camp
with a clean slate, and I plan to make the
most of the opportunity given to me.
Nine players are World Cup veterans,

including the 34-year-old Beasley, the only


American to play in four Cups. Beasley will
compete with Greg Garza and Taylor Kemp to
back up starting left back Fabian Johnson.
His experience can help our team and his
enthusiasm, Arena said. We think
DaMarcus is a good player to compare others
with because we know hes been successful at
the international level in that position.
Altidore needs one international appearance to become the 17th American man to
reach 100 and at 27 would be the secondyoungest behind Landon Donovan, who was
26 at the time of his 100th appearance in
2008.
Altidore is scheduled to report on Jan. 12
and McCarty on Jan. 16.
Five of the eligible players have not
appeared for the national team: defenders
Kemp, Keegan Rosenberry and Walker
Zimmerman, and midfielders Sebastian
Lletget and Chris Pontius.
Arena said Graham Zusi will be used as a
right back and Kellyn Acosta in defensive
midfield.

sending a long diagonal pass toward the


right side of the Monta Vista penalty box.
Allan Beilin came tearing in, leaped and
jabbed home a right-footed shot off the volley to give M-A a 1-0 lead.
[Beilin is a] definitely a talented player
who has been overlooked, Krupnik said.
Im glad he got the goal. He has a good
understanding of the game.
Over the next 25 minutes, however, the
Bears started to lose their shape and the
high-pressure Matadors took advantage.
They were consistently probing the Bears
backline with a number of penetrating passes that were cleared away more often than
not, but it was obvious one defensive miscue and Monta Vista would be in business.

It happened just before the halftime whistle. A Matador midfielder sent a ball through
the M-A backline. With the assistant referee
out of position behind the play, he could
not tell if the Monta Vista forward was offside or not. He kept his flag down and the
Matadors went in to score the equalizer.
A minute later, the halftime whistle blew.
Same story weve had all year, Krupnik
said. We get the goal and (then) lose our
momentum.
The Bears came out blazing to start the
second half, peppering the Monta Vista
goalkeeper with three quality scoring
chances in the opening minutes, but were
denied each time.
But in the Bears haste to find the game-

winning goal, they left themselves open to


the Monta Vista counterattack. And after
watching the midfield disappear, the M-A
defense did a disappearing act as well over
the final 15 minutes of the game. Several
times, Monta Vista found itself in a one-onone situation with M-A sweeper Kalani
Napoleon. Once he made the play. Two
other times, it was simply poor finishing
attempts from the Matadors that kept the
game tied.
I feel were a better team (than what
weve shown so far this season), Krupnik
said. I think this team is more talented
than last year. But last years team had more
leadership. Thats what were looking for
right now.

49ers interview Packers Eliot Wolf for GM job


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SANTA CLARA The San Francisco 49ers


are interviewing Green Bay Packers director of
football operations Eliot Wolf for their general manager vacancy.
The Niners said that they met with Wolf on
Thursday, making him the first candidate to
interview for the job since Trent Baalke was
fired Sunday following a 2-14 season.
San Francisco is also conducting a coaching
search at the same time and interviewed Buffalo
Bills interim coach Anthony Lynn for that job
on Wednesday. Team CEO Jed York said he was

open to hiring either the


coach or general manager
first.
The 34-year-old Wolf is
the son of Hall of Fame
executive Ron Wolf, who
helped build a Super Bowl
champion in Green Bay
and developed numerous
front office executives
Eliot Wolf
throughout the league.
Eliot Wolf started with the Packers in 2004
as a pro personnel assistant and worked his
way up the organization. He was director of

2011-13 and a Super Bowl appearance.


Jim Tomsula replaced him and was fired after
a 5-11 season. York then fired both Baalke and
coach Chip Kelly after this past season.
The Niners became the first team in nearly
four decades to fire coaches in successive seasons after only one-year tenures. The only
other time that happened since the 1970 merger came when San Francisco fired Monte Clark
after the 1976 season and Ken Meyer the following year. The 49ers then fired Pete
McCulley midway through the 1978 season
and interim coach Fred OConnor after the year
before hiring Bill Walsh to start a dynasty.

Kyle Shanahan: Definitely


ready to be a head NFL coach

PLAYOFFS
Continued from page 11
Oakland coach Jack Del Rio singled him out
as the primary reason the Raiders ran for a
season-low 30 yards in 20 carries in the
first meeting between the two teams.
You can say hes grown, but you could
tell he has that kind of capability, Mack
said. Just watching him last year, he was
amazing against the run and came up just
shy of all those sacks and all those different
things. With time, you
can tell that hes been
blossoming and hes a
hell of a player.
Clowneys lack of
pass-rush production,
especially compared to
Mack, led some skeptics
to question whether the
Texans erred in which
Jadeveon
pass rusher they took
Clowney
first overall even though
his 16 tackles for losses on run plays are
one off the league lead this season.
For Clowney, its only served as motivation.
All the criticism kind of built me up, he
said. It really helped me off the field with
pushing and getting better. Just to come
back and prove to them that what they were
saying was wrong. It kind of helped me.
Mack followed up last years breakthrough season when he had 15 sacks,
including five in one game in Denver
against Osweiler, with perhaps an even better year.
While his sacks were down with only 11,
Mack led the NFL with 96 quarterback pressures, according to Pro Football Focus,
sealed a pair of victories over Carolina and
Buffalo with strip sacks that he recovered
and returned an interception against Cam
Newton for a touchdown.
He did all that as well as developing into

player personnel before getting promoted to


his current job last March.
He coordinates the pro and college football
departments, handles pro and college scouting
and helps evaluate potential free-agent signings.
York said the primary goal in the search is
finding a coach and general manager who can
work well together. The Niners got rid of coach
Jim Harbaugh following the 2014 season in
part because of conflicts with Baalke.
Harbaugh led the team to its only successful
stretch of the past 15 years with trips to the
NFC title game in his first three seasons from

mantra of By any means becoming a team
slogan.
Khalil is never surprising, defensive
coordinator Ken Norton Jr. said. The kid is
amazing. Hes fast. Hes strong. Hes that
basketball player that fills out the stat
sheet. Everybody just sees the sacks, but
hes in meetings early. Hes a leader. Hes a
guy that the young guys can really lean on

And the player no offense wants to face.
Hes a stud, Osweiler said. Hes one of
the best pass rushers this game has to offer,
and there are a lot of good ones out there.
Hes right at the top of the list. What hes
able to do is truly special. Hes a very
strong player, hes a very athletic player,
hes fast, he can bull rush you, he can speed
rush you, he has a very high motor, he never

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. Kyle Shanahan


believes he is ready to become a head coach
even though he doesnt feel pressured to leave
his current role as Atlanta Falcons offensive
coordinator.
Absolutely not, Shanahan said Thursday
when asked if he would take
any job.
I love the situation
here, he said of his two
years on Dan Quinns
Falcons staff. Shanahan
added that becoming a head
coach is the goal of most
people in our profession.
Shanahan, the son of forKyle Shanahan mer Denver Broncos coach
Mike Shanahan, is expected to interview with the Broncos, Jacksonville,
Los Angeles and San Francisco on Friday and
Saturday.
Kyle Shanahan, 37, confirmed the Broncos
are one of a few teams on his interview schedule. He said he believes he is ready to coach a
team.
Yeah, I definitely do, he said. I think I have
been. I think a lot of guys are. Its about getting
that opportunity and hope its the right fit.
Mike Shanahan was the Broncos coach from
1998-2008. Kyle Shanahan never worked for
his father in Denver.
I know some of the people in that organization, just growing up there, Shanahan said. ...
I left there when I was in high school and
havent been back since. Ive known the guys
over the years most of my life. Ive got a lot of
respect for them for football people.
Thats really what is most flattering, when
youve got respect for people and you really

think they do things the right way and theyre


really about one thing and thats trying to win a
Super Bowl.
Shanahan was offensive coordinator for his
father with the Washington Redskins from
2010-13. He also was offensive coordinator for
Cleveland in 2014 before joining Quinn in
Atlanta in 2015.
Shanahans NFL stock as a coaching candidate is high as the NFC South champion
Falcons (11-5) lead the NFL in scoring.
Quarterback Matt Ryan, a leading MVP candidate , has flourished in Shanahans offense. The
Falcons have a wild-card bye this weekend,
leaving Shanahan free to be interviewed.
I think it would have been an impossible situation if we didnt win last week, but in the bye
week it has actually been pretty convenient,
Shanahan said. ... The whole staff and the players are going to get Friday and Saturday off, so
thats when Im taking care of that business.
Atlanta will play at home against Seattle,
Green Bay or the New York Giants on Jan. 14.
The Falcons averaged 33.8 points per game
to lead the league and earned the No. 2 seed by
closing the regular season with a 38-32 win
over New Orleans .
It was yet another impressive performance by
Shanahans offense.
On Thursday, left tackle Jake Matthews said
Shanahan deserved much credit for the success
of the offense. Matthews also said Shanahan
would be nothing but successful as a head
coach.
Everything hes done since hes been here
has been nothing but professional, Matthews
said. I think hes a great leader. The way he
calls plays and runs this offense, hes one of the
bigger parts of it. Obviously Matt and players
are the ones executing it, but hes the brainchild
of it all.

THE DAILY JOURNAL

WNBA
Continued from page 11
WNBA players playing this winter in Turkey.
For years, the 14-team Turkish league has provided the opportunity for players to supplement
their WNBA incomes in the offseason, offering
salaries in the hundreds of thousands of dollars
sometimes more than three times what they
make in the U.S.-based league.
The European leagues have a different mindset
than the WNBA, with owners being willing to
lose money to fund teams for the prestige of
winning the domestic league and international
competitions such as the Euro League and Euro
Cup that bring together the best teams from
around the continent. Some of the womens
teams are part of multi-sport clubs that make
money in soccer or mens basketball. Also
unlike the WNBA, there is no salary cap, and
its not uncommon for local governments or
sponsors to chip in financially to acquire marquee talent.

Recent violence has


players looking to leave
But amid violence in nearby Syria, and after a
deadly nightclub attack in a neighborhood
where some players celebrated on New Years
Eve in Istanbul, some players are reconsidering
their contracts. A handful of WNBA players told
the Associated Press they want to come back to
the U.S. as soon as possible. They spoke on
condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of contract negotiations and out of
fear they could become targets if they said publicly they wanted to leave.
Getting out of their Turkish contracts could
depend on how they are written. Some players
have assurances that if the U.S. government recommends that a country is not safe for
Americans, they can opt out. In October, the
State Department put out warnings to U.S. citizens of increased threats from terrorist groups
throughout Turkey. U.S. citizens should avoid
travel to southeast Turkey and carefully consider the risks of travel to and throughout the country.
A spokesman for the Turkish Basketball
Federation did not respond to an AP request for
comment.

Some staying
Not all WNBA players want to leave. Former
Mitty standout and San Antonio Stars guard
Danielle Robinson just signed a contract before
the New Year to play with Mersin a team in
south Turkey.
I put a lot of thought into my decision to
play in Turkey and it was the right choice for
me. The benefits outweighed the risk,
Robinson wrote in an email. I was ready to
play and wanted to play at a high level and those

were things I could control by coming here. Of


course there are fears. I think there are fears any
time you leave the comfort of home, but there is
fear at home too. I just leave home having faith
that if I make good choices, the percentages are
in my favor that everything will be okay.

First-hand experience
Shavonte Zellous has spent her last eight
winters in Istanbul playing. Shes loved the culture shes experienced in Turkey and it has been
a second home to her. But she is weighing if it
is worth risking her safety.
Its been an honor to play there, but this year
now its getting fearful and scary with stuff
thats been happening, Zellous said in a phone
interview with The Associated Press. Coming
into the season you heard things were going on
and some players were like, I dont know if I
want to continue playing over there.
She said she initially thought it wasnt that
bad.
But now being over there, Its like oh my
God, its never been like its been now.
Zellous said that her Turkish teammates are
scared. No one wants to go out anymore for fear
of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Literally our life now is go to the gym, go to
the store, go home, Zellous said. Thats not
how I want to live.
Zellous, who also plays for the Liberty, was
home for the holidays in Indiana. She knows
she would most likely have been at a club with
many other WNBA players on New Years Eve
down the street from the deadly night club
shooting. Shes glad that none of her teammates were hurt in the attack.
The attack killed 39 people in an upscale district known to be popular with celebrities. IS
claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it
was in reprisal for Turkish military operations
against IS in northern Syria. Of those killed, 27
were foreigners many from the Middle East.
I was never worried before about bombings,
shootings or anything in the nature of violence, Zellous said. Now its going on, its
like, Do I really want to stay in this place?
What if I was in the wrong place at the wrong
time with friends when someone opens fire?
Every WNBA player is scared.
Zellous said that the WNBA players in Turkey
have a group text chat where staying in the
country is routinely discussed. Zellous hopes
her upcoming trip back to Turkey will be her
last to the country for a while. Shes hoping to
get out of her contract with Besiktas.
The 30-year-old Zellous grew up near gunfire
in her neighborhood and later lived near the site
of the Orlando nightclub shooting and knew
people killed there. That made the Istanbul
attacks hit home and made her more aware of
her own safety.
Im not saying America is a great country
where we dont have things that go on, Zellous
said. I want to be home rather than a whole different country. Being from Orlando it hit hard
for me.

Bosh getting a taste of retirement


THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Chris Bosh still is unclear about what his


future holds, and while mentioning how hes
getting a taste of retirement stopped short
of saying he will no
longer pursue an NBA
career.
Bosh has been sidelined
since
last
February
because of complications
related to blood clots.
Hes still technically a
member of the Miami
Heat, though has not been
Chris Bosh
around the team in any
official capacity since he
failed a physical in September and was not
permitted to resume on-court activities.
Bosh, speaking at the CES gadget show in
Las Vegas, was asked how hes spent time

away from the court.


For me, I kind of just follow my passions
and follow what I love to do and use my free
time to kind of answer those questions and go
through my bad moods and maybe a little
light case of depression, Bosh said. Really,
to search for what Im looking for. And Ive
come to some interesting conclusions. Its all
about following my heart and what made me
happy.
Bosh did not specifically mention whether
he will or will not try to play again, nor did he
mention his health status. Its expected that
the Heat will waive him sometime after
February, after the 1-year anniversary of his
last game appearance passes. The $76 million that Bosh is owed for this and the next
two seasons remains guaranteed, but he would
no longer be taking up a massive amount of
Miamis salary-cap space.

APP
Continued from page 1
Creating the app coincides well with
Caltrains plans to electrify the popular
transit corridor by 2021 and is in part a
response to riders requesting an online payment option, said Chief Communications
Officer Seamus Murphy.
Were right on the cusp of modernizing
the actual service itself and how its delivered and modernizing the way people pay
for it is right in line with that effort. And it
should be done in tandem, Murphy said.
We should, in the heart of Silicon Valley,
have a transportation system thats just as
innovative as the community we serve.
Still in the very early stages, the app
could one day expand into allowing riders
to pay for parking or bike lockers, plan
their trips or alert them of real-time delays
or incidents. Buying a ticket via a smartphone is anticipated to roll out later this

yes, were changing now, but the constant is that we have always been changing.
This years celebrations will feature
events designed to bring community
members together and document the citys
past, present and future. Chris Beth, the
citys Parks, Recreation and Community
Services director, has been working with
community members and city staff to fold
new events into the Sesquicentennial
Celebration calendar. In addition to the

LOCAL

THE DAILY JOURNAL

year with extended amenities slated to be


considered in subsequent years, Murphy
said.
We want the application to eventually be
sort of a one-stop shop for all Caltrainrelated information, Murphy said.
SamTrans, the countys bus and shuttle
provider, is also looking to create a pay-byphone app for its own users, he noted.
This week, the board approved a contract
with a company called moovel North
America to spend up to $643,733 to develop the base app along with upgraded features, and for two years of service. It also
includes options for three one-year extensions totaling $885,000. The app company
will also receive a tiered commission rate of
6.5 percent to 4.2 percent based on ticket
revenue, according to Caltrain.
While the app may be a new expense, it
could ultimately save the transit agency
money if users start turning to their phones
and away from Caltrains aging ticket
machines. Much of the existing infrastructure is outdated, requiring costly maintenance, Murphy said.

The details of exactly how the app will


work still need to be fleshed out, but there
will be provisions ensuring tickets cant be
duplicated and conductors are properly
trained, he added.
Plus, its an amenity riders have asked for
in regular surveys. Caltrain is continuing to
study customer behaviors and adjust to keep
with demands. Considering commuters
needs is vital, particularly in light of a
recent survey showing a slowdown in ridership growth for the first time in 72 months.
But there may be a variety of explanations
for the slight drop in ridership as compared
to the same time a year prior, Murphy said.
The ridership survey is based on ticket
revenue and although that decreased by
about 2 percent to 3 percent, Murphy noted
an uptick in other purchases. The rate of
employers and companies buying Go
Passes an unlimited ride pass for their
workers increased 22 percent, Murphy said.
Some have speculated it could also be a
capacity issue, a common problem Caltrain
cites as a vital driver of its electrification
project that may soon allow it to run more

trains at higher speeds.


Other possible factors include low gas
prices; a shift in employment; or the long
dreaded, but increasingly cited, potential
slowdown of the economy. Plus in general,
there are declines both regionally and
nationally in transportation ridership,
Murphy said.
Whatever it is, Caltrain is interested in
understanding the root cause and doing what
it can to make taking mass transit more
desirable and convenient two key factors
in getting cars off the road and easing congestion. The mobile pay app is just another
way to meet changing demands of Bay Area
commuters, Murphy said.
Weve been blessed with dramatically
increasing ridership over the last several
years and we dont want to depend on that
situation lasting forever and we certainly
dont want to take our customers for granted, Murphy said. This is an amenity were
hoping will make the system more attractive and easier to use for our existing customers, and will inspire more people to ride
Caltrain.

events Beth plans throughout the year, a


gold miners re-enactment camp, treeplanting days and an overnight family
campout, among other activities, will dot
parks across Redwood City this year.
Were really incorporating all that we
do anyway, throughout the year, and
branding it as the sesquicentennial, said
Beth.
Other initiatives will leverage the community engagement to capture the citys
history from a multitude of perspectives.
Redwood City is one of the few cities
in the county that has really honored its
history and has done a lot to preserve it,
said Dee Eva, who co-chairs the
Sesquicentennial Celebration committee
with Pierce and formerly served on the
Historic Resources Advisory Committee.

industrial stage where we were the early

forerunners of what is now the Apples,
she said.
To help residents imagine the past from
another residents perspective, Library
Director Derek Wolfgram is planning days
when local teens and seniors will have the
opportunity to upload personal photos of
the city for a program called Redwood
City Now and Then.
Its a fun way to use history to bring
generations together, he said.
For Wolfgram, the shared sense of collaboration he has experienced in Redwood
City is what makes this years celebration
so exciting.
I noticed immediately on an organizational level, that there was a real collaborative spirit in this city, he said. The
way that the schools, and the business
community and the government and non-

profits all work together. The longer Ive


been here, the more Ive seen that that
goes down to the individuals.
And the committee, with 20 members
from the City Council, staff and at-large
community, has seen the community step
up to help commemorate this milestone.
The group has seen great enthusiasm from
local organizations, from nonprofits to a
local ballet studio, offer their support and
ideas.
I think theres been a great history of
community gatherings, celebrations and
opportunities, said Beth. This is why
events have really flourished. I think
what the Library is doing and Parks and
Rec are doing in having these chances for
meeting is to get to know people. We
want to welcome our new residents, too.
A sesquicentennial reception will k ick

Loach film a searing call


for humanity and decency
By Jocelyn Noveck
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Just like a Michael Moore documentary,


theres nothing subtle about a Ken Loach
drama.
The 80-year-old British director and
social critic has long been an ardent, insistent, eloquent champion of the more vulnerable members of society particularly
working-class folks who are trying to do
the right thing but just cant catch a break.
Whether hes exploring homelessness,

poverty or other social


ills, Loachs arguments,
and emotions, are always
crystal clear.
Loach has been making movies for a halfcentury some more
effective than others
but hes in beautiful form
with I, Daniel Blake, a
Ken Loach
searing look at one
mans seemingly futile fight against the
British welfare system, against the

encroachment of technology into our lives,


and most of all, against the forces that can
conspire to make people feel small and
insignificant and, well, not human.
There are moments when I, Daniel
Blake which won the Palme DOr at
Cannes feels like a documentary, and
thats largely due to the pitch-perfect cast
Loach has assembled, from star Dave Johns
a comedian who is occasionally funny
here but also proud, anguished and increasingly angry down to those with the
smallest parts: a security guard, a food bank

employee, a kind-hearted worker at an


employment office.
Johns plays Daniel, a 59-year old, widowed carpenter in northeastern England,
whos sidelined after a heart attack. Daniel
aches to return to work, but doctors say his
heart isnt ready. Hes been receiving subsidies, but suddenly hes forced to undergo an
assessment to determine whether he
deserves them.
Loach cleverly begins the film with mere-

DAILY JOURNAL SENIOR CORRESPONDENT

GAMES OF CHANCE: GAMBLING


DEVICES OF THE MECHANICAL
AGE, AT THE SAN FRANCISCO AIRPORT MUSEUM. A gambler transported
from a turn-of-the-20th-century saloon in
San Franciscos Barbary Coast would easily
recognize a modern slot machine in todays
casinos. Even with new materials and modern technology, the play concept has
changed remarkably little in the more than
100 years since San Francisco inventor
Charles Fey introduced the first automaticpayout, three-reel slot machine payment
is inserted, the handle is pulled or the button is pressed, and the reels spin to a stop to
determine the outcome.
In no part of the world did gambling take
place so openly and on such a large scale as
in San Francisco during the Victorian era.
The citys residents were largely pioneers or
one generation removed from those who
risked all to relocate and gamble on a new
life in the West. San Franciscans wagered in
nearly every possible manner, including
horse races, sporting contests, card games,
wheels-of-fortune and impromptu barroom
arguments on every conceivable subject.
San Francisco Airport Museums Games of
Chance: Gambling Devices of the
Mechanical Age illustrates the technological and artistic innovations of mechanical
gambling machines from the earliest
devices relying on simple clock mechanisms and a payout by the bartender, to
automatic slot machines with elaborate
carved-wood, cast-iron or painted-aluminum
bodies each vying for the attention of
the next player willing to drop a coin and
try their luck.
At the beginning of the 20th century,
more than 3,000 gambling machines operated freely, enticing customers from busy
sidewalks into the saloons and cigar stores

that proliferated throughout San Francisco.


The overwhelming number of slot machines
in San Francisco led to a citywide ban in
1909. The law was ignored for two years and
the machines were then outlawed statewide.
The Volstead Act of 1919 resulted in a
nationwide ban on gambling devices that
lasted until the repeal of Prohibition in
1933. A popular wave of anti-gambling sentiment developed again during the late
1940s, culminating in 1951 when
Congress passed legislation preventing the
shipment of slot machines across state
lines. Like-minded state legislators seized
on this momentum to pass anti-possession
laws in every state except one. By the
1960s, slot machines were legal only in
Nevada. In 1978, New Jersey became the
second state to allow the machines when its
legislature legalized usage in Atlantic City.
In 1988, an Act of Congress made slot
machines available for use in American
Indian casinos, which now operate in 28
states.
Games of Chance: Gambling Devices of
the Mechanical Age is on display at
Terminal 3, departures level 2 postsecurity through June 18. There is no charge
to view this exhibition. SFO Museum, the
first of its kind in the United States and a
widely imitated model for museums operating in public arenas, features approximately 20 galleries throughout the airport, displaying a rotating schedule of art, history,

Tips for reducing


the sugar in your
morning smoothie
By Melissa dArabian
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Smores are easy to make, appeal to kids of all ages, and are a guaranteed crowd pleaser.

Game day smores are a big


win for Super Bowl party fare
By Elizabeth Karmel
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

These sweet treats are a riff on the very


popular summer campfire smores. If
you love marshmallow and chocolate
and get nostalgic when you think of
campfire smores, these simpler nobake game day smores will delight
you.
The smores are easy to make, appeal
to kids of all ages, and are a guaranteed
crowd pleaser. There is no baking or
fire-roasting so you can make these
indoors and they are safe for even young
children to make. I make these often for
events because I can make them ahead of
time and store them in the freezer. Some
people even prefer eating them when
they are still frozen.
You need a package of graham crackers, Nutella, marshmallow fluff and raspberry, strawberry or grape jelly. The

best thing is that they are customizable


you could add peanut butter and/or
any other spread that you like.
Break the graham cracker in half at the
perforation. Spread a generous teaspoon
of Nutella on one side of the cracker and
a tablespoon of marshmallow fluff on
the other. Add a thin layer of jelly over
the Nutella. I always stir the jelly with a
fork to make sure that it is smooth
before spreading on the smore. Place
the two halves together and press gently
to seal the filling and repeat.
If you want the smores to look a little
more finished and I always do dip
the sticky sides in sugar sprinkles that
match your favorite team colors for a
perfect Super Bowl presentation, or
shaved chocolate and nuts for a more
sophisticated look.
For parties, I like to set out the graham crackers and spreads and add a few
options like sliced bananas, crumbled

bacon, chocolate chips, chopped nuts,


colorful sprinkles and lots of different
jellies the sky and your friends and
familys imaginations are the limit!
Give everyone a (plastic) knife and let
them make their own smores.

The smoothie has become ubiquitous because it makes


healthy eating sound easy and attainable. Ill admit to you
right here: I love smoothies throwing a bunch of things
into a blender and then sipping on my breakfast. The more
nutrients I can cram into that cool and creamy treat, the better. Healthy mornings are smart because mornings are when
we have the most discipline since the day hasnt tired us
out, and our willpower isnt exhausted. And smoothies are
quick to throw together, and theyre portable, which makes
them a busy-persons best friend at breakfast. (You can
even pre-prep smoothie ingredients in resealable bags to
keep in the fridge or freezer for dump-and-blend convenience).
Not all smoothies are equal, however. Just because something is a green smoothie doesnt mean that it isnt
loaded with sugar. (Just read the labels of some commercially-available smoothies). Making your own smoothies at
home gives you a lot more control, of course. But even so,
if you load up a smoothie with an apple, a banana, some
honey and berries, you could easily be looking at the same
amount of sugar as a can of cola, which we would never gulp
down at breakfast. Yes, fruit is natural sugar, but it still
needs to be consumed mindfully.
Here are some tips for reducing the sugar in your morning
smoothie. First, get some creamy texture going from
something other than the banana. Now, I love bananas,
especially frozen ones in smoothies. But if you add some
other creamy items to your smoothies like some tofu,
cooked white beans (yes!), or avocado you can reduce the
banana to a small slice or two for some body and a hint of
sweetness without going overboard.
Second tip: freeze up some greens like spinach, sliced
cabbage, or kale. Freezing greens mellow their flavor a bit
so you can add them into smoothies for extra nutrition.
Next, use frozen mixed berries to satisfy your sweet tooth
they do have some sugar, but also bring fiber and nutrients to the table, so they are a great ingredient overall.
Finally, boost your smoothie with some secret ingredients that fool your palate into thinking your food is sweeter than it actually is. Orange zest, cinnamon, almond
extract, unsweetened cocoa, pumpkin puree and coconut oil
are all great ways to pump up the flavor of your smoothie
without adding extra sweeteners like honey or sugar. Which
means that tiny bit of banana or mango or peach will go
much further in making your smoothie super tasty.

Procession of stars arrive at Reynolds


and Fisher houses for reported funeral
By Lindsey Bahr
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A procession of stars arrived at the


next door homes of Debbie Reynolds
and her daughter Carrie Fisher on a
gloomy Thursday afternoon amid
reports that a private memorial was
scheduled at the compound to mourn
the late actresses. Meryl Streep, Meg
Ryan, Ellen Barkin and Ed Begley Jr.
were among those spotted entering the
property in the Coldwater Canyon area
of Los Angeles.
Press, private security and police
assembled on the street outside of the
homes, which are tucked away at the
end of a long driveway and hidden by
trees and shrubs in the tony hillside
neighborhood.
Streep, who starred in the adaption
of Fishers semi-autobiographical
novel Postcards from the Edge, was
carrying white flowers as she walked
up the driveway, choosing to ignore

Continued from page 19
ly the audio of this disheartening
assessment interview, during which a
clueless questioner asks absurd preordained questions about, for example,
the condition of his bowels. More disheartening is the result: Daniel gets 12
points, and needs 15 to keep getting
assistance.
Thus begins an obstacle course that
feels increasingly Monty Pythonesque though not funny. While
Daniel waits for the mere chance to
appeal, he must apply for unemployment benefits, or else hell starve. To
get them, he must prove hes spending
35 hours a week looking for work.
Even though he cant work.
And so Daniel pursues the farce. At a
CV-writing workshop, Daniels told he
should make video CVs and send them

questions from the


media gathered on
the street. Streep
also
presented
Reynolds with the
Jean
Hersholt
Humanitarian Award
at the film academys
Governors
Awards
in
2015.
Debbie
Fisher
and
Reynolds
Reynolds died last
week, one day apart, casting a pall
over Hollywoods annual holiday
break. Fisher, 60, an actress and writer
who starred as Princess Leia in the
original Star Wars trilogy, died Dec.
27 after suffering a medical emergency
Dec. 23 aboard a flight from London.
Reynolds, 84, an Oscar-nominated
actress who shot to fame after starring
in Singin in the Rain at age 19,
passed away Dec. 28 after being
briefly hospitalized.
She said, I want to be with

she was gone.

and

Carrie Fisher
reportedly
on
Friday. The sprawling location is the
resting place of numerous celebrities,
including Lucille Ball, Dick Van
Patten, Liberace, Florence Henderson,
David Carradine and Bette Davis.
Todd Fisher and other family representatives did not immediately
respond to requests for further details
about the memorial and burial services.
Fishers daughter, Billie Lourd, 24,
made her first public comment on the
deaths of her mother and grandmother
on Instagram Monday.

from his smartphone he doesnt


have one, and cant even operate a
computer mouse.
You give me a plot of land and I can
build a house on it, but I cant get near
a computer, he says ruefully.
At the welfare office one day, Daniel
meets a single mother, in more dire
straits than he is. Katie (Hayley
Squires, natural and moving) has been
squeezed out of London and offered dismal lodging up north instead. Shes
being sanctioned for being late,
after getting on the wrong bus.
Daniel befriends Katie, whos struggling so much, she needs to choose
between heating her apartment and
buying school clothes. She cooks for
her children but doesnt have enough
for herself. In one devastating scene at
a food bank, she breaks open a can of
beans and drinks the juice because
shes so hungry.
Her shame is agonizing to watch. So
is her embarrassment when shes

caught shoplifting sanitary products.


Daniel tries to keep her from despair,
but his own situation is worsening,
too.
Theres little comic relief here
how can there be? Loach and screenwriter Paul Laverty do give Daniel one
quasi-humorous scene in which he
makes a dramatic public call for recognition. The scene flirts with showiness, but does give us a break, however brief, from the bleakness.
In the end, the title, seemingly unremarkable, reveals itself as especially
poignant. Daniel is crying out for
recognition as an I even if he
cant contribute, even if he needs help
for a while. This prolific director will
no doubt be making the same argument
for years to come.

PRIMARY
Continued from page 1
An election reform advocate, Mullin
contends bringing California in line
with other March-voting states isnt
about political preference, its about
having the nations potential leaders
address issues affecting Californians.
Im not doing this for partisan purposes. My goal here is to really make
sure voters of all political persuasions
have their voices heard and more
importantly we get real engagement
from candidates on both sides on substantive issues like climate change,
housing, transportation, immigration; issues that Californians care
about but are too often ignored in the
nomination process, Mullin said.
Although both President-elect
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton
made California pit stops on their
campaign trails, it was primarily about
raising funds and less about discussing
pertinent issues. Even if the state has
long worn blue, allowing California
voters the opportunity to shape discussions that continue through
November is key, he said.
California historically is a political ATM. Candidates come through to
raise money but they really dont
engage in substantive discussions on
issues affecting California, Mullin
said.
Iowa and New Hampshire, which
have very early voting even prior to
the March primaries known as Super
Tuesdays, are often looked to as decid-

WEATHER
Continued from page 1
An atmospheric river is a long and
narrow region of the atmosphere that
horizontally transports moisture out
of the tropics, according to the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration. An atmospheric river
that brings moisture to the West Coast
from near Hawaii is sometimes called a
Pineapple Express.
The system prompted heavy snow in
the Sierra Nevada, where the Mammoth
Mountain ski resort reported accumulations ranging from 44 inches to 7 feet
in 1 1/2 days, with more falling. The
snowfall closed mountain routes or
forced chain and snow tire requirements.
Torrential rain fell in some areas,
including parts of Tulare and Kern
counties, where flash flood warnings
were in effect for much of the day after
as much as 9 inches of rain fell, the
National Weather Service said.,

ing factors in a candidates campaign.


With much of California already
moving toward voting by mail, Mullin
said moving to a March primary could
bolster the Golden States influence on
which candidates make the November
ticket.
So youre looking at millions of
votes being cast in California, in the
most populous state in the country, in
February (because of vote by mail),
which will absolutely increase the
chances or at least our relevance in the
nomination process, Mullin said.
The local lawmaker officially introduced Assembly Bill 84 Thursday as an
admitted response to the most recent
White House shake-up; but its not an
extraordinary prospect.
For decades in the early 1900s
California bounced between May presidential primary and August gubernatorial primaries. In 1946, the June primary date stuck and voters ran with it
for 50 years. But that changed when
Californians moved to a March primary during the 1996, 2000 and 2004
presidential elections, according to
data from the Secretary of States
Office.
But 2008 brought a new, albeit
arguably flawed, attempt when legislators moved to a February presidential
primary that boasted a 57.7 percent
turnout of registered voters, followed
by a June primary that saw just 28.2
percent turnout, according to the
Secretary of States Office. That split
primary also led to higher costs with
counties elections offices having to
host three elections in a single year,
Mullin noted.
Clearly opposed to the bifurcated

primary, Mullin said he didnt expect


any cost increases as counties would
host just one March primary during
presidential election years then toggle
back to June.
San Mateo County elections officials said they didnt have a comment
on the bill at this time since they were
in the process of analyzing the potential impacts of Mullins proposal.
Mullin said he would work with the
California Association of Clerks and
Elections Officials on possible concerns. As for pushback, Mullin rejected the notion that the legislation was
intended to advance former state attorney general and now U.S. Sen. Kamala
Harris in a 2020 bid for the Oval
Office.
He also argued against the idea that
campaign spending could get out of
hand with an eight-month election
cycle as its only been extended a short
period of time and many candidates or
advocacy groups begin fundraising a
year or more in advance.
Election reform is a major platform
for the former South San Francisco
councilman. Hes been credited with
expanding the states vote by mail
system, requiring an automatic recount
for certain close state races, and has
sought to encourage more youth participate in the process. This years
effort remains in that vein of empowering California voters, he said.
Im realistic about this, theres no
way to absolutely guarantee that
California will somehow be decisive
[in choosing party leaders], Mullin
said. But this increases the likelihood
of California playing a major role in
shaping the presidential field.

inches of rain fell at Rocky Butte in


San Luis Obispo County. Rock slides
closed Highway 1 from 11 miles north
of San Simeon to about 4 miles south
of Big Sur, the California Department
of Transportation said.
Rainfall amounts across most of
Southern California were much more
modest but contributed to continuing
relief after five years of drought.
Hillsides covered in long-dead brush
have turned from brown to green as
January rains follow a wet December.
As of Thursday morning downtown,
Los Angeles had nearly 6 inches of
rain since the Oct. 1 start of the water
year well above normal to date and
more than five times as much what fell
by same time a year ago. A swift-water
rescue team pulled a man off a brushy
island in the Los Angeles River, which
normally runs at a trickle until it
swells with runoff.
This weeks second, wetter, atmospheric river was forecast to arrive in
California Saturday morning and continue into Monday, bringing heavy
snow to the Sierra Nevada above 9,000
feet and heavy rain in the Sierra and
foothills below 8,000 feet.

Highest elevations of the Sierra can


expect 3 feet to 6 feet of snow and
some locations could get 8 feet, the
weather service said.
Forecasters said potential hazards
from the event could include flash
flooding, mudslides, debris flows near
recent wildfire burn scars and urban and
small stream flooding in the San
Joaquin Valley.
It cannot be emphasized enough
that the forecast amounts of rain will
cause extreme flooding for the Sierra,
foothills and adjacent lower elevations, the Hanford weather office
wrote. Yosemite Park has the potential for a major flood as well as most
other locations along rivers and
streams in the Central California
Interior.
The National Park Service said visitors should be aware that Yosemite
might close for several days due to predictions of significant rainfall and the
Merced River rising well above flood
stages.
A flood in January 1997 cause so
much damage to roads, campgrounds,
lodging and utilities that the park was
closed until the following March.

a commitment that you cannot fulfill. Taking on too
much will be your downfall. Offer only what is feasible.

Official: Turkey closing


in on nightclub gunman
By Dusan Stojanovic
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ISTANBUL Turkish police are


closing in on the gunman who killed
39 people at an Istanbul nightclub, a
senior government official said
Thursday, insisting the suspects possible whereabouts and contacts have
been established.
Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Veysi
Kaynak told A Haber news channel in an
interview that the gunman who attacked
Istanbuls upscale Reina nightclub was
probably from Chinas Muslim Uighur
minority and a specially trained member of a (terror) cell.
The security forces have determined
his identify, his possible whereabouts
have been determined... His contacts
have also been determined, Kaynak
told A Haber. We can say that the circle

is closing in on
him.
Kaynak
said
authorities think the
man, whose name
hasnt
been
revealed, is still
inside
Turkey,
although
they
havent completely
Suspect
ruled out the possibility that he may have escaped after
the New Years attack.
Because we have taken utmost measures at our airports even though we
dont rule it out completely we
believe that we will get results from
operations inside Turkey, he said.
His comments came hours after
police conducted more raids in their
hunt for the gunman and detailed several people at a housing complex on

Istanbuls outskirts, the state-run news


agency reported.
Anadolu Agency said gendarmerie
police and special operations teams
detained an undisclosed number of
Uighurs during the raids. The Anadolu
report said they were suspected of aiding and abetting the gunman.
At least 39 other people including
11 women already were in custody
over suspected links to the attack.
The Islamic State group has claimed
responsibility, saying the nightclub
attack was in reprisal for Turkish military operations in northern Syria.
Most of the victims were foreign
nationals from the Middle East.
The nightclub massacre was the latest in a string of attacks by either the
IS or Kurdish militants that have
rocked the country since the summer of
2015.

Car bombing in
Turkey kills two;
attackers dead

IZMIR, Turkey Suspected Kurdish militants on Thursday


opened fire at police who stopped them at a checkpoint in the
western city of Izmir before detonating their explosivesladen vehicle, the provinces governor said. A policeman and
a courthouse employee were killed in the attack while two
assailants were shot dead.
Gov. Erol Ayyildiz said preliminary indications pointed to
the Kurdistan Workers Party, or PKK, which has carried out a
string of attacks in the past year and a half, mainly targeting
Turkeys security forces. Islamic State militants have also
carried several deadly attacks in the country.
The information so far suggests it is the PKK. Such a conclusion was reached after we assessed the attack and IDd the
people, Ayyildiz said.
The governor did not refer to earlier reports that a third
attacker was on the run.
Ayyildiz said the attackers were carrying two automatic
rifles, rocket launchers and eight hand grenades.
The attack occurred near a courthouse in Izmirs Bayrakli
district, close to an entrance used by judges, prosecutors and
other employees. Police detonated a second vehicle found
near the scene of the incident. Ayyildiz said six or seven
people were also wounded in the attack, adding that police
vigilance had foiled a possible more serious attack.
When you look at the preparations they had made, the
weapons that were seized, the bombs and the ammunition, it
is clear that a big massacre was planned, said Deputy Prime
Minister Veysi Kaynak. Praise God, they were not successful.

Around the world


Turkey: Cease-fire violations
in Syria are obstacle to talks
UNITED NATIONS Turkeys foreign minister said
Thursday that cease-fire violations in Syria are the main
obstacle to holding peace negotiations later this month and
he called on the U.N. Security Council to impose sanctions
on those continuing the violence.
Mevlut Cavusoglu told reporters at U.N. headquarters
where he discussed Syria with new Secretary-General
Antonio Guterres that if the talks go ahead in Kazakhstans
capital Astana they will be based on a roadmap to peace
agreed to by key powers in Geneva in 2012. It starts with
the establishment of a transitional government with full
executive powers agreed to by both sides and ends with
elections.
Turkey, a strong supporter of Syrias moderate opposition, and Russia, which backs President Bashar Assad, brokered the cease-fire which came into effect on Dec. 30, and
has mostly held but not altogether halted fighting in the
country.
