It was the largest metropolitan newspaper in circulation in the United States in 2008, the Times is owned by tronc. The Times was first published on December 4,1881, as the Los Angeles Daily Times under the direction of Nathan Cole Jr. and it was first printed at the Mirror printing plant, owned by Jesse Yarnell and T. J. Unable to pay the bill and Gardiner turned the paper over to the Mirror Company. Mathes had joined the firm, and it was at his insistence that the Times continued publication, in July 1882, Harrison Gray Otis moved from Santa Barbara to become the papers editor. Otis made the Times a financial success, in an era where newspapers were driven by party politics, the Times was directed at Republican readers. As was typical of newspapers of the time, the Times would sit on stories for several days, historian Kevin Starr wrote that Otis was a businessman capable of manipulating the entire apparatus of politics and public opinion for his own enrichment.
Otiss editorial policy was based on civic boosterism, extolling the virtues of Los Angeles, the efforts of the Times to fight local unions led to the October 1,1910 bombing of its headquarters, killing twenty-one people. Two union leaders and Joseph McNamara, were charged, the American Federation of Labor hired noted trial attorney Clarence Darrow to represent the brothers, who eventually pleaded guilty. Upon Otiss death in 1917, his son-in-law, Harry Chandler, Harry Chandler was succeeded in 1944 by his son, Norman Chandler, who ran the paper during the rapid growth of post-war Los Angeles. Family members are buried at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery near Paramount Studios, the site includes a memorial to the Times Building bombing victims. The fourth generation of family publishers, Otis Chandler, held that position from 1960 to 1980, Otis Chandler sought legitimacy and recognition for his familys paper, often forgotten in the power centers of the Northeastern United States due to its geographic and cultural distance.
He sought to remake the paper in the model of the nations most respected newspapers, notably The New York Times, believing that the newsroom was the heartbeat of the business, Otis Chandler increased the size and pay of the reporting staff and expanded its national and international reporting. In 1962, the paper joined with the Washington Post to form the Los Angeles Times-Washington Post News Service to syndicate articles from both papers for news organizations. During the 1960s, the paper won four Pulitzer Prizes, more than its previous nine decades combined, eventually the coupon-clipping branches realized that they could make more money investing in something other than newspapers. Under their pressure the companies went public, or split apart, thats the pattern followed over more than a century by the Los Angeles Times under the Chandler family. The papers early history and subsequent transformation was chronicled in an unauthorized history Thinking Big and it has been the whole or partial subject of nearly thirty dissertations in communications or social science in the past four decades.
In 2000, the Tribune Company acquired the Times, placing the paper in co-ownership with then-WB -affiliated KTLA, which Tribune acquired in 1985

Rolling meth lab
A rolling meth lab is a transportable laboratory that is used to illegally produce methamphetamine. Rolling meth labs are often moved to a location where the strong, toxic fumes of methamphetamine manufacture cannot be detected. They are sometimes designed to manufacture the drug while the lab is traveling, such incidents have not only injured the meth producers, but have injured passing motorists and police officers, who are exposed to dangerous fumes. The main dangers of transporting depend on the used to produce the methamphetamine. Inhalation of the gas can cause lung damage or even death. In an accident, the used to contain this gas generally fail. The use of anhydrous ammonia has dropped significantly since the introduction of the Shake and Bake method of methamphetamine production and this method cuts out the need for anhydrous ammonia as well as red phosphorus. All the ingredients are placed into a bottle and shaken while the chemical reaction occurs. This reaction occurs under pressure and the bottle must be unscrewed to release pressure.
Methamphetamine producers often call this burping the bottle, the dangers of transporting a shake and bake lab are similar to those of transporting anhydrous ammonia. If the bottle turns on its side and certain ingredients combine with each other and this is because when the organic solvent is exposed to lithium and water in the presence of oxygen when the bottle tips, and the lithium reaction cause the combustion. As with a lab, the remaining fumes from a crude moving methamphetamine lab can be extremely toxic. The surfaces of the interior can be coated or impregnated with the poisonous residue. A further complication is that the methods for meth frequently change so the proper remediation for a given lab site cannot be assumed from previous known lab methods. To find a licensed and certified company, the National Crime Scene Clean Up Association has compiled the EPA approved vendor list and this is a revision on The Methamphetamine Remediation Research Act of 2007 EPA develop guidelines for remediating former methamphetamine labs.
The legislation required that EPA periodically update the guidelines, as appropriate, to reflect the best available knowledge, rolling meth labs can be concealed on or in vehicles as large as 18 wheelers or as small as motorcycles. Rolling labs are more difficult to detect than stationary ones and can be often hidden amidst legal cargo on big trucks, many recent rolling lab discoveries were the result of an officer just stumbling onto them. Improved officer training and checking suspicious vehicles with K-9 units may allow increased detection, a recurring location in several episodes of the television series Breaking Bad is a mid-1980s Fleetwood Bounder motorhome named The Krystal Ship, used by the protagonists as their mobile laboratory
