Los Angeles: Where did our city name originate?

"El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles del Río de Porciúncula" (Yes, that's the original.) I've lived here almost half my life and I did not know. I never took the time to investigate until now.

Frisbee fines story clarified - Frisbees NOT banned

The reported “Frisbee Ban” is actually a misunderstanding, somehow perpetuated by social media, news sources etc… It appears that the intended rule or change to rules, was to allow officials/lifeguards etc, to designate areas at any given time for Frisbee tossing and other sports, based upon conditions at the beach.
