    Whale with mangled tail traveled from Russia to Southern California
    It was obvious from the humpback whale’s disfigured tail, this sea creature had quite a tale.
    Even longtime whale watchers couldn’t believe the journey the humpback had been on – crossing some 3,800 miles from Russian waters to Southern California, despite having big chunks of its tail missing.
    A whale that traveled from Russia stunned whale watchers earlier this month, not just because of the long journey but also because it was done with a disfigured tail, likely the cause of

    What California exodus? Exits fell 5.4% last year in first drop since 2011
    Despite all the talk about a California exodus, 5.4% fewer people left last year for other states — the first decline in eight years, new census stats show.
    The annual state-to-state migration report shows 653,551 people left the state, the largest exit count among the states in 2019. But my trusty spreadsheet tells me this is a 37,594 drop from 691,145 in 2018. It’s the first decline in eight years and the fewest exits since 2015. Only Missouri had a bigger dip last year.
