Los Angeles homelessness rises 12 percent amid slow economic recovery

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 05/12/2015 - 11:18
By Steve Gorman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Los Angeles County's homeless population has grown by 12 percent during the past two years amid a sluggish economic recovery that has left the poorest residents of the second-largest U.S. metropolitan area falling farther behind, a study released on Monday found. The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority's report cited stagnant or falling wages among the lowest-income earners, a local jobless rate that remains above state and national averages, and a worsening lack of affordable housing. "The economy has improved, but not for the persons at greatest risk of homelessness," said Peter Lynn, the authority's executive director. According to the agency's latest biennial count, an estimated 44,300 people are living on the streets, in cars, in abandoned buildings or in shelters and government-funded "transitional housing" on any given night in Los Angeles County.

In Boston, both fans and foes divided over 'Deflategate' decision

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 05/12/2015 - 11:00
By Elizabeth Barber BOSTON (Reuters) - Hunched over burgers and chili cheese dogs at a Boston-area pub, a group of friends digested Monday's news of punishment in the "Deflategate" scandal for the New England Patriots and star quarterback Tom Brady. Not surprisingly, there was a full menu of reactions - from praise to disbelief to condemnation - to Brady's four-game suspension by the National Football League for using under-inflated footballs. "The suspension is ridiculous," said Jake McGuiggan, 22, a Harvard University undergraduate. It's just suspicion, which doesn't merit discipline." Meanwhile, his friend, Sean O'Neill, a New York Jets fan who attends Harvard Business School, reveled in the punishment.
