counter: ramen weather - la times


if it’s been an unaccountably long week for you too, then maybe it’s time to head to the mall. not kidding, at least if you love ramen as much as most of us do. because not only is din tai fung at the mall in glendale, there’s now a branch of one of the best ramen shops in southern california there too. so maybe stop in for a bowl of tsukemen at the tsujita — jonathan gold’s latest restaurant review — before you head up to mammoth or mountain high. you may need all that pork-intensive nourishment while you wait in those long lines.if ramen isn’t your thing (really?), then you might visit one or two of the notable neighborhood restaurants that are closing their doors, either in a few days or a few weeks. or a few of those that are opening their doors. or maybe one of the restaurants on jona

republican redistricting is taking a beating in the courts, right now


recent court decisions in three states are putting carefully carved republican-drawn state legislative districts at risk — and could even threaten the entire process of partisan map drawing.on friday, a federal court ordered wisconsin’s legislature to redraw the state’s house districts after finding in november the districts were unconstitutionally partisan. the order will essentially require lawmakers to redraw state senate maps as well.the november decision was the first time this decade that a court has thrown out legislative maps because they favored voters of one party over another. subsequently, this will be the first time in a decade lawmakers will have to redraw maps specifically to make them more fair for both parties.thirty-seven states allow their legislatures draw their elector

why wireless virtual reality is needed for vr's mainstream acceptance


virtual reality is here to stay, but its adoption by mainstream culture will take much longer. we’ve seen the earliest signs of expansion beyond gamers and early adopters, but it hasn’t come from the big, highly capable headsets like the htc vive and oculus rift. instead, it’s come from mobile vr. samsung’s gear vr and google cardboard are the most common vr headsets in the world.even vr goggles the size of sungl es would be pointless without wireless.this may seem strange, given that mobile vr isn’t as capable, but the history of technology includes many examples of hardware and software seeing mainstream adoption only after it be e easy for everyone to use. the gaming industry exploded once home-consoles meant that people didn’t need to travel to arcades anymore, and smartphones needed t

the motley fool: useful tips on investing


who gets the money?q: when i buy a share of stock in a company, does it get the money? and what does owning some shares really get me?a: shares of stock represent real ownership stakes in companies. if a company has a million shares outstanding and you buy 100 of them, you own one ten-thousandth of the company. as the company grows more valuable, so should your shares.companies that “go public” via initial public offerings (ipos) collect most of the cash generated when shares are created and initially sold. but once the shares start trading on the market between investors, the company doesn’t get a piece of those transactions. (brokerages do, though.)still, companies care how their stocks do. a falling stock price lowers a business’ market value and it can help the company buy another comp
