This urgent need means that if you’re a city employee, we’re now going to require you to either show that you’re vaccinated or take a weekly test," Garcetti said during the announcement.During her remarks, Martinez in particular called attention to the fact that the new surge in COVID-19 cases is the fault of people who refuse to get vaccinated. “I think it’s safe to say that we’re getting tired of putting our lives on hold to protect people who don’t want to protect themselves and get vaccinated," she said.

Weirdly Serious 'Ghostbusters: Afterlife' Trailer Divides Fans: 'I Thought Ghostbusters Was a Comedy'
Entertainment

There’s something strange in the neighborhood -- specifically, if you ask many fans of the 80s comedy classic "Ghostbusters," the lack of humor in the new “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” trailer. Some are ripping the reboot’s relatively serious tone as “bizarre” while others are questioning why a film in which “that’s a big twinkie” is uttered is held in such high regard in the first place. “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” came back to haunt us Tuesday, dropping a new trailer featuring more insight into the movie’s plot, hints at some of its nostalgic cameos and an unexpectedly reverent attitude toward its silly, sarcastic source material. Because, as previously mentioned, the original "Ghostbusters" is generally perceived as a comedy -- but the trailers for "Afterlife" have so far made this sequel seem more like a drama.
