Clippers Owner Banned from NBA 10 MIN, 24 SEC

The NBA says Clippers owner Donald Sterling will have to pay $2.5 million and will be suspended indefinitely from running the team, attending any NBA games or showing his face at any Clippers facilities. This all stems from an audiotape of Sterling making racist comments was leaked to media over the weekend. The NBA will also pressure other owners to force Sterling to sell of Clippers.

Race in Sports 6 MIN, 34 SEC

One of the questions at today’s press conference to NBA commissioner Adam Silver was whether he’d consider more minority ownership of NBA teams. He said yes. But the reality is that very few teams have African-American owners, despite the fact that 80% of players are black.

Cars 7 MIN, 35 SEC

The city of Torrance is reeling from the news that Toyota is moving its North American sales headquarters out of town and taking 3,000 jobs with it. It’s devastating news for Torrance, and it also makes a statement about the modern auto industry. We talk about that and other car-related news with reporter Matt DeBord.

Your Modern Workspace 14 MIN

More than half of us spend most waking hours in cubicles, and most of us would rather not. So, if we hate working in teeny boxes under fluorescent lights so much, how did we get here?

Skymall and the Modern Flyer 7 MIN, 17 SEC

There are more options than ever for airline passengers to kill time during their flight: In-flight television, iPhone games, and portable DVD players. That is bad news for the makers of SkyMall Magazine, as the once go-to option for in-flight entertainment is now taking a back seat. Now the magazine is in the red, and its future looks bleak.
