If you can put aside the bland white guy named Steve pinging between scenes, stitching the various strands of story together with his white-guy need to learn martial arts badassery and save a beautiful Chinese girl from prostitution, then the otherwise all-Asian-cast, Bruce Lee biography-inspired “Birth of the Dragon” can be kind of fun.George Nolfi’s period kung fu tale, set in an evocative 1960s San Francisco, is an elaborately fictionalized account of a real fight between the young, pre-legend Lee and a Shaolin master.

The Kung Fu Panda has been KO’d. The Red Sox announced Friday they have designated third basemen Pablo Sandoval for assignment. Sandoval, 30, notoriously signed a nightmare five-year, $95 million contract with the Red Sox in 2014, and gravely underperformed since his Giants heyday.

- Influential tea expert Winnie Yu dies at age 47
By Jonathan Kauffman - Wednesday Sep 13, 2017
Winnie Yu, co-founder of Teance Fine Teas in Berkeley, and a woman whose influence on American tea culture was quiet but pervasive, died in Berkeley on September 11 after a year-long illness. She was 47. Yu was born in Hainan, China, in 1970. Her parents, who were artists, emigrated first to Hong Kong and then to New York when she was in grade school. She came to Berkeley to attend college, then completed a master’s at the Haas UC Berkeley Haas School of Business and worked as a financial advisor. However, friends say, Yu was not your average business school grad. She had grown up immersed in art and traditional tea culture, and was a student of both Buddhism and kung fu.
