  • Aldon Smith "Appeared as if he had been drinking earlier in the day," Says Police Officer

    Ryan Glasspiegel
    14 Apr 2014 | 7:26 am
    Aldon Smith was released from LAPD jail on $20,000 bail Sunday night after he was charged with making a false bomb threat at LAX. The prevailing question, especially given Smith’s past incidents of the law, is how anybody in his right mind could do that. After Smith missed five games last season while in rehab following a single car DUI accident, it was natural to question if he might have been drinking before arriving at the airport. “He was not what we considered to be intoxicated,” said LAX Police Sgt. Karla Ortiz, via Matt Maiocco of, “but he appeared as if…

The 24-year-old player was randomly selected for a secondary screening at Terminal 1 and became uncooperative with the process, airport police Sgt. Karla Ortiz said. She said he told a TSA agent that he had a bomb before walking to the gate. When airport police officers caught up with him, Ortiz said Smith became uncooperative and was taken into custody.

    We’re back on the streets of San Francisco. And are they packed or what these days? Seems like just as highway 101 is a barometer of the overall economy, so too are the throngs of humanity moving in and around our favorite City. I’ve been shooting segments for Stark Insider, once again with trusty Canon EOS gear. Though I’m mighty tempted these days by the Super 35 and 4K cameras, as was seen in hearty supply this year at NAB, there’s something about taking a garden variety (and mighty fine) DSLR such as the EOS 70D and just hitting the streets to see what will happen.

    Hamlet (c. Jeremy Kahn) is torn between Faustus (l. Michael Stevenson) and Martin Luther (r. Dan Hiatt) in Wittenberg. Martin Luther taught at Wittenberg University. Dr. Faustus took place there. Hamlet, as we see in Shakespeare’s Act I, Scene 2, wants to return there. In raising the possibility that these three cross paths in this “hotbed of iconoclastic unorthodox thought,” playwright David Davalos has created a clever comedy that just opened at the Aurora Theatre in Berkeley. The success of this very funny play rests almost entirely upon Michael Stevenson (Faustus) and Dan Hiatt…

    Forage To Feast Chef’s Table Lunch at Pebble Beach Food & Wine. This is not like any camping trip or foraging expedition from childhood memory. I went on a foraging expedition with two James Beard award-winning chefs, Michael Symon and Joseph Lenn. Michael Trujillo, winemaker at Sequoia Grove Winery came along as well to make sure any culinary creation was paired with the perfect wine. Else, no feast would be complete. This was not like any camping trip conjured up from childhood memory. No, this was the type of excursion you only have at the 7th Annual Pebble Beach Food & Wine.
