Yoga studio owner David Gross felt relieved after Los Angeles adopted a vaccination mandate that is among the strictest in the country, a measure that went into effect Monday that requires proof of shooting for anyone who enter a wide variety of businesses, from restaurants to malls and theaters to nails. and hairdressing salons.
For Gross, the relief came knowing that he and his co-owner didn’t have to decide whether to verify that their clients were unilaterally vaccinated.

2. The petition calls for Travis Scott to be removed from the Coachella Festival lineup
A petition calling for Travis Scott to be removed from the lineup of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which the rapper is expected to make headlines in April, received hundreds of signatures on Sunday afternoon following a wave of crowds that resulted in eight deaths during Scott’s performance at a music festival in Houston.
The spectator crush happened on Friday night during the sold-out Astroworld 2021 festival at NRG Park, where around 50,000 people gathered. Eight people between the ages of 14 and 27 have died and 300 others have been injured, according to Houston officials.
The 30-year-old Houston rapper has a reputation for putting on loud shows and has been arrested in the past for antics on stage that prompted wild behavior. In 2015, he was arrested after encouraging fans to go through security gates and join him on stage at the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago. He subsequently pleaded guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct.
Two years later, he was charged with inciting a riot at the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion in Rodgers, Arkansas, after urging members of the crowd to rush onto the stage. Several people were injured, including a security guard and a police officer. Scott pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and was ordered to pay court costs and restitution to two injured people.
A petition launched on Friday Changer.org urged Paul Tollett, the festival’s co-founder, and promoter Goldenvoice, as well as his parent company AEG, to remove Scott from all of his festivals “due to Scott’s gross negligence and lack of compassion for human life “.
Scott is slated to headline each Saturday of the two Coachella Festival weekends, which are slated to take place April 15-17 and April 22-24. He had already performed at the festival in 2017.
3. Turnovers and penalties plague Rams in loss to Titans
Kevin Byard returned Matthew Stafford’s second in a row 24-yard interception for a touchdown, and the Tennessee defense carried the Titans to a 28-16 win over the Los Angeles Rams in a showdown between the co-leaders of the Sunday evening conference.
Jeffery Simmons had three of Tennessee Stafford’s five sacks in a stifling performance against the Rams’ prolific passing offense. Stafford crucially threw back-to-back interceptions that the Titans turned to 14 points in 11 seconds of the second quarter, sending them well on track for their fifth straight win.
Stafford had 294 yards and threw the 24th pick-6 of his career – the most among active quarterbacks – in the worst game of his rookie season with the Rams (7-2). Los Angeles’ four-game winning streak ended with the fourth meeting in just 15 years between two teams with the best records in their conferences.
After generating MVP talks for his outstanding eight-game start to the season, Stafford looked shaky and confused against the Tennessee defense in the first half.
Los Angeles, the least penalized team in the NFL, has also been reported 12 times for 115 yards – the most yards in coach Sean McVay’s career.
