Coverage of the shooting and the trial add to a fast-spreading discussion about how the media should cover mass violence. Standard media practices have evolved throughout the years to accommodate other tragedies – new outlets don’t publish details of most rapes, and especially don’t publish details about the victim and their appearance.

Suicides are hardly ever covered unless the person is especially famous; details are kept under wraps to prevent “copycat” attempts and associations between the act of suicide and notoriety. Several news outlets have argued that mass murders may be spurred on by the idea of fame. Could new, self-imposed restrictions on reporting these crimes change the impact of the press? Some have suggested leaving names and details about the perpetrators out of coverage completely, or at least until they are on trial. Many many have called for less sensationalized reporting, criticizing reporters who interview traumatized victims and witnesses in the immediate aftermath of tragic events.

Could media sensitivity have an effect on the future of violent crime? Is re-focusing Steve Buttry, Ms. 1/8/13 MEDI reporting away from perpetrators of violence a good media decision?

The issue at hand was runoff from L.A.’s storm water sewer system. Groups such as the Natural Resources Defense Council Inc. and Santa Monica Baykeeper were accusing Los Angeles County of violating the Clean Water Act.

The city’s runoff system carries storm water to the Pacific Ocean, and is often marked by the various materials and substances which find their way into the water due to storms and flooding. Thus, environmental groups stressed that the drainage system was allowing for the discharge of pollutants into the Pacific, as bacteria and feces were often far above normal levels. The Supreme Court, however, determined that water, and any pollutants in said water, flowing from a runoff system into the ocean wasn’t the same as actively polluting a waterway. While the legal aspects are settled for now, there is still a great deal of uncertainty surrounding this issue. Steve Fleischli, 1/8/13 LAW Mark Pestrella 8:00 The “yesterday” in the title of Jared Diamond’s new book refers to the period 11,000 years ago when hunter-gatherer groups evolved into modern human societies. Despite the emergence of civilization, organized religion, industrialization and mass communication, have we really changed that much as humans? Has ordered government supplanted or protected group harmony? Have our health, diet and family life suffered or improved thanks to modern innovations? Where do agrarian and industrialized societies intersect?

These are some of the questions Diamond attempts to answer by comparing human societies both ancient and modern, drawing on his extensive fieldwork among the traditional cultures of New Guinea, the Amazon and Kalahari which are still in existence.

What remnants of human societies past still linger in our modern DNA? Which have been lost to us, possibly forever? What do these changes mean to our collective future? 1/8/13 LIT Jared Diamond 17:00 Five years ago, California’s state prisons were full to bursting – over 170,000 inmates housed in 33 facilities. Civil rights groups decried the overcrowded conditions, which included prisoners bunked three to a cell or in outdoor pens and inmates with severe medical and mental health issues that were going untreated, sometimes resulting in death. Things got so bad that a federal court in 2009 ordered the state to reduce its prison population by 40,000 within two years.

Realignment practices have included transferring prisoners to county facilities or out of state (at a cost of over half a million dollars a day) and early release of lesser offenders, but the number of prisoners is still more than 9,000 above what the federal judges ordered. But despite the fact that some state facilities are still well over capacity and prison rights groups continue to lobby for further reductions, Governor announced today that California has sufficiently reduced its prison population and there’s no need to do more.

With fans young and old hoping to get the shortest possible lines to the most popular attractions, Disney is deploying more technology to boost your experience in the Magical Kingdom.

An app called MyMagic+ is being rolled out to create a more personalized visit, the company tells The Times. Taking advantage of massive WiFi networks and its thousands of visitors armed with smartphones, guests can choose how much information they’d like to share with the app, and whether to wear corresponding wristbands (called “MagicBands”). If you enter your name and other details, Snow White might greet you by name, and wish you a happy birthday. Moms in strollers could speed their way through turnstiles. And the band could even be used for purchases. The company in turn gets to speed up lines and transactions, learn more about consumers, and presumably boost purchases.

So far, it’s only heading to the theme parks. A spokeswoman for Disneyland and California Adventure says, “For now we’re just focused on Orlando-based World,” but, “we always look to enhance guest experience.” 1/8/13 ENT Brooks Barnes 13:00 Production house Laika and Focus Features were responsible for 2009’s Coraline, the first-ever stop motion 3D movie.

The story of a young boy who can communicate with the dead, ParaNorman is the second stop motion 3D feature ever made, and the first to use 3D color printers to make character faces.

Stop motion cinematography has come a long way since the days of Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer, but it’s still a painstaking practice, that relies on lifelike puppets, elaborate mini-sets and delicately crafted props. The movie attracted attention not only for the beautiful results of its groundbreaking animation technology, but also for story composition and script. One character has broken new ground with audiences and reviewers – Mitch, the older brother of the titular Norman’s friend, reveals at the end of the film that he has a boyfriend, making him the first openly gay character in a mainstream children’s animated film.

California maintains its own Armed Prohibited Persons list. Yet millions of mentally ill people remain unlisted, ostensibly still able to purchase firearms legally. Vice President Biden’s task force to reduce gun violence has focused on improving the effectiveness of such databases.

Is this a realistic goal, given how many different agencies need to coordinate the information at the local, state, and federal level? Is the focus on gun access for the mentally ill an appropriate response, given the vast majority of acts of gun violence are not committed by those with mental illness?

Steve Lindley 13:00 Toxins, sewage and debris ranging from plastic water bottles to soccer balls regularly find their way Southern California’s beaches and oceans through L.A.’s waterways after a heavy rain. Now, county water officials are proposing a property-based tax to help fund clean-up efforts.

The fee would be based on the size of an owner’s land parcel; homeowners would be assessed approximately $54 a year, city parks around $600 and elementary schools around $8,000. The LACFD estimates the parcel tax would raise around $275 million a year, to be spent on various cleanup projects. Cities, homeowners associations and school districts have voiced opposition to the proposal. The county Board of Supervisors is holding a public hearing on Tuesday, and is expected to decide soon on whether to issue a special ballot asking landowners to vote on the measure.

In other environmental news, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear an appeal by the American Trucking Associations against the City of Los Angeles.

While that may not sound so different from our perception of only children in the United States, there is different weight to China’s situation. One only child can be a handful, but what about a whole nation of them?

Now, it looks like a recent study from Monash University in Australia reinforces those popular presumptions with research. When comparing adults born after the one-child policy went into effect to those born before the rule, the younger adults display less altruism and a higher aversion to taking risks. They also shied away from competition in relation to their counterparts born before the policy, and displayed a higher degree of negativity. Researchers also drew connections between these characteristics and China’s future economic competitiveness. As those born after the one-child policy continue to enter the workforce, eventually they will be the predominant group.

What will it mean for an entire office to be comprised of only children? What if they’re risk averse? Will that negatively impact entrepreneurship? How does this apply to the Clayton Dube, 1/14/13 ECON United States? What’s your take on all this? Do you think the plight of the only child is Jean M. Twenge 16:00 Lobbyists and legislators in Sacramento are debating whether California should boost the minimum wage. Currently, it sits at $8.00 an hour, but Assemblymember Luis Alejo's (D-Salinas) AB 10 seeks staggered increases in the coming years. His plan would bump it to $8.25 in 2014, follow with two 50 cent boosts over subsequent years, then automatically index it to inflation as of 2017.

Alejo tried a similar bill last year but it failed in the face of business opposition. Groups such as the California Chamber of Commerce and the California Restaurant Association warn of the unintended consequences of a higher minimum wage. They argue employers will cut down on hiring or move out of state. The last increase was before the great recession, back on January 1, 2008. Reacting to the freeze, a handful of California cities have instituted their own wage hikes above $10. Sylvia Allegreto, 1/14/13 ECON John Kabateck 22:00

While the trees are only saplings, the figurative seeds have been planted for a fruit park in Del Aire. A fruit park may sound redundant, but this marks a change in the way communities approach and use public space. Typically, fruit trees and the like are frowned upon for use in parks due to the risk associated with child injuries from falling. But when proposals were being accepted for changes to Del Aire Park, one group found a way to convince Los Angeles County to reconsider.

Fallen Fruit, a group of artists which focuses on community involvement projects, proposed turning Del Aire Park into a place where residents could not only gather outside, but even use the fruit trees in the park for food. It will take some time for the saplings to grow, but the ultimate vision is to use a variety of crops so that there will be some kind of fruit ripening throughout the entire year.

It’s a dance we’ve seen in America time and time again—disgraced celebrity seeks absolution from TV icon. Say your apologies, shed a few tears, promise to never do it again and then get out of there. But will that prove to be enough for Lance Armstrong? He was a figure so central to his sport that the current situation regarding doping seems to be an indictment of cycling in general. His critics are furious with him for letting down so many people and tarnishing the reputation of an activity that was already beset with problems of athletes using drugs. Furthermore, Armstrong has been vehemently denying drug use for years now. For him to reverse his position convinces many that this move is purely opportunistic and not genuine in the least.

How can someone lie so aggressively for so long? There are fans out there who come to Armstrong’s defense. There is the old argument that all athletes at the highest professional levels use performance enhancers of some kind, so Armstrong was simply trying to keep up. Or there are the supporters who were positively affected by Armstrong’s Live Strong organization, and aren’t really affected by what may or may not have happened in the world of sport.

So who is right? Is this sincere? Is Armstrong trying to make amends with his past Dan Empfield, and move onward and upward? Or is this just a ploy to keep competing and avoid Royal Oakes, Dan 1/15/13 SPORq ruininNew researchg his leg achasy? shown that pedophilia is not stemmed directly from childhood Ariely 47:00:00 sexual abuse. Some of the new information on the disorder comes from the Center for Mental Health and Addiction in Toronto, where studies have been conducted on convicted sex offenders.

Increasingly, pedophilia is seen as an intrinsic disorder rather than a trait developed after suffering child sexual abuse. Genetic predisposition may delineate potential pedophiles: 30% are left-handed or ambidextrous, and many are about an inch shorter than average, with a 10 point below-average IQ. The disorder has been found and researched almost exclusively in men. While many perpetrators of child sexual abuse are motivated by violent tendencies, and usually choose relatives as their victims, pedophiles are more likely to see children as romantic partners. Their sexual preference may be as biologically innate as any other, and although many pedophiles struggle with their desires, many are able to control their sexual urges.

Most psychiatrists have stopped trying to change pedophile’s sexual orientations, instead opting to help their patients find the best ways to control their sexual desire, sometimes through therapy and sometimes with hormone treatment. Is there a good Fred , Dr. Hy 1/15/13 HEAL way to create a support system for pedophiles that keeps children safe? How will new Malinek 16:00 Companies like Herbalife, Mary Kay, Avon and Amway have been around for decades. Proponents of direct sales and multi-level-marketing (MLM) companies claim they offer consumers a line of time-tested, quality products that are used and endorsed by distributors and marketed with the personal touch. For some sellers, direct sales and MLM’s can lead to financial independence - perhaps even wealth - and a chance to give a leg up to friends and family.

But for every legitimate business that uses this model, there are dozens of illegal “pyramid schemes” luring the hopeful, underemployed and desperate into a never- ending cycle of spend/recruit/spend. Recently Herbalife, the poster boy for MLM’s with a 32-year track record of success, came under attack for its marketing practices. Hedge fund manager Bill Ackman publicly labeled it a pyramid scheme, pointing out the many similarities with illegitimate businesses that make money selling dreams, not vitamins.

Pyramid schemes make their top levels rich by recruiting sellers and encouraging them to purchase vast amounts of product, attend expensive sales seminars and - of course - mine their social circles for new recruits. More often than not, the riches don’t materialize and distributors end up with garages full of product, broken marriages, ruined credit and lives. Joe Mariano, 1/15/13 ECON Stacie Bosley 23:00 Why are California’s college graduates struggling to find employment? Northern California Assemblyman Don Logue believes it’s because too many students are graduating with liberal arts degrees and entering into a job-market without a high demand for those professions. Logue’s Assembly Bill 51 proposes capping the price of science, technology, engineering, and math degrees to $10,000 dollars, which is half of the current tuition fee, on CSU Long Beach, CSU Chico, and CSU Stanislaus. Governor Rick Scott of Florida has proposed a similar initiative in Florida universities to freeze tuition rates of these majors while tuition rates continue to rise in the other fields of study.

At the University of Florida, a group of history professors have already organized a protest petition, fearing that this move would decrease the number of students studying liberal arts and thereby decrease funding in those departments. As for funding, Logue expects the state of California to pay for the financial discrepancies for these departments, and Scott hopes that Florida’s state financing and private-public partnerships will cover the expenses.

What do you think about tiered education and a $10,000 bachelor’s degree? Do you think students will change their fields of study based on these proposals?

Although it’s not popular in other countries, more than 75 percent of the American population consumes over one billion pounds of it annually.

However, peanut butter has not been immune to social and economic trends. Sales dropped when it got a bad rap for being unhealthy, and risen again when recession- strapped families rediscovered it as a high-protein and cost-effective food.

This prompted Hormel Foods to purchase Skippy for $700 million dollars earlier this month; the company forecasts sales of $370 million this year. “Creamy and Crunchy: An Informal History of Peanut Butter, the all-American Food,” claims to be the first comprehensive history of peanut butter.

The reelection of recently inaugurated President Obama is a telltale sign of a greater shift in perspective among Americans on many issues including immigration policy. A newly released poll conducted by Associated Press-GfK indicates that 6 in 10 Americans now support allowing illegal immigrants to eventually become United States citizens, a significant increase driven by a turn in many Republicans’ positions since the 2012 elections. A majority in the GOP - 53 percent - now favor blazing a more inclusive trail toward citizenship. That’s a 22 percent increase from 2010.

The Republicans’ shift in their approach to immigration policy comes as the GOP seeks to increase its lackluster support among Latino voters, who rallied behind President Obama in November. In his inaugural speech on Monday, Obama declared, “Our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see America as a land of opportunity; until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our workforce rather than expelled from our country." Moreover, David Axelrod, one of Obama’s top advisors, stated on Monday that immigration reform will be a high priority for the Obama administration that will be prompted early on during the president’s second term.

Why has such a significant shift in immigration ideology among Republicans happened so fast? Is the GOP simply pandering to Latino voters for their support or has a more comprehensive understanding of immigration needs been adopted? What kinds of real and enduring changes in immigration policy might we see over the next Mark Lopez, Dan 1/23/13 POLI four years? Judy 14:00 Although General Stanley A. McChrystal may want to be known for enacting a counterinsurgency doctrine that changed the war in , the public may remember him more for his success in being part of the task force that captured and the accusations of insubordination that forced his resignation.

In his new book, McChrystal tells his side of the story. “My Share of the Task: A Memoir by General Stanley A. McChrystal” is not McChrystal’s outlet for criticizing government and the military, nor does it attempt to vindicate his highly publicized statements in "." Rather, he simply tells his story and attempts to personalize the soldiers fighting in the war.

McChrystal details how he grew up in a military family and then spent six years as Commander of a special operations task force in . He remembers some of the thousands of raids, explaining how creating a network between different departments led to greater intelligence that quickened their operating speed. In 2009, McChrystal became the Commander of the NATO coalition in Afghanistan and took on the task of changing public distrust toward the government and the war. In addition, he had to convince the leaders of 37 countries, as well as over 100,000 troops, that the war could be won by counterinsurgency methods of effective communication rather than brute force.

Last week, George Taylor was given a two-day jail sentence and three years probation for killing his wife, Gewynn. The couple, both in their 80’s and with unspecified medical problems, had wanted to die together. After suffocating his wife with a plastic bag, Taylor attempted to do the same to himself, but failed. He pleaded guilty to the felony of assisted suicide. The outcome was the result of leniency on the part of both the prosecutor and the judge – and it’s not an isolated case.

There have been several recent instances of elderly people who made their wish to die known, and were aided in carrying out that wish by spouses, friends, or family members. Although doctor-assisted suicide is allowed in three states, California is not one of them; ending a life is clearly against the law. Yet assisted-suicide cases rarely come to trial. Prosecutors, feeling that jurors will be sympathetic to, say, a grieving, elderly person who has helped an ailing spouse to end his or her suffering, prefer to bring lesser charges.

1/23/13 HEAL Robert Weisberg 17:00 The family of deceased NFL linebacker Junior Seau sued the NFL today for “acts or omissions” about the danger of repetitive blows to the head that led to Seau’s chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) and ultimately his suicide.

Seau’s family is accusing the NFL of deliberately concealing the consequences of traumatic brain injuries, and this isn’t the first accusation made to the NFL. In fact, the Associated Press reported over 3,800 players have sued the NFL over head injuries. The Seaus are also suing the helmet manufacturer Riddell and calling the company “negligent.”

Does the NFL promote violence in the game? Do football players know the risks involved when they sign up to play? Can these lawsuits change the way American Jody Armour, 1/23/13 SPOR football is played? David Orentlicher 14:00 Reportedly, the Dodgers have agreed to a deal with Time Warner Cable for the team’s television contract.

The specifics of the deal aren’t yet known—it has yet to be sent to the MLB for approval—but it is expected to land somewhere between $6 and $7 billion.

Previously, the Dodgers had a deal with Fox Sports, but Time Warner Cable came into the conversation when an exclusive negotiating window with Fox expired. Time Warner Cable now has television deals with the Lakers and the Dodgers, both of which were previously with Fox Sports.

So what does this mean for fans? How has the Lakers deal with Time Warner Cable played out? Can we expect to see more of the same in this deal?

“Never Built: Los Angeles” will showcase skyscrapers and hilltop museums from famed architects that didn’t make it into the city’s skyline and will explore how the envisioned works might have changed L.A. – for good or bad. What do you think of Los Angeles architecture?

Would the city be better with more skyscrapers or more interconnected roads and public transportation? Could any of the imagined architecture be ruinous to Los Angeles lifestyle or culture?

Are the emotional arguments in the gun control debate effective? In the wake of the Newtown school shooting, the U.S. push for gun safety reform has sparked passionate, emotional arguments from both sides of the debate. Testimony from grieving parents and frightened children has been cited in political discourse. President Obama read from the letters of schoolchildren in his speech about upcoming gun control legislation. Gun advocates have also approached the issue emotionally, with remembrances of heroic moments and elaborate stories about what could have happened differently if there were more armed “good guys.”

Perhaps the most stirring voice is that of former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot in the head during a political rally in Arizona in 2011. Yesterday, Giffords’ Senate testimony called for immediate gun reform, and packed a heavy emotional punch. Are the impassioned pleas an effective part of the gun control debate? Politicians on both sides continue to discuss legislation, economics, and constitutional rights, but the slow-going nature of policy reform leaves plenty of room for interim theatrics. Sentimental arguments for and against gun control have been thrust into the limelight. Tom Hollihan, 1/31/13 LAW Nancy Snow 14:00 After many twists and turns, it looks like the Manti Te’o story is starting to become clear.

First, he had a long-distance girlfriend who passed away after the death of his grandmother. Then, he comes out and says she wasn’t real, at which other people are labeled as perpetuating a hoax against the football player. Now, the man who was behind it all is speaking out to provide his side of the story. In an interview with Dr. Phil, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo admitted to masterminding the plan because he was in love with Te’o. In an effort to get close to him, Tuiasosopo went so far as to create an online profile, establish a back story, and even use a woman’s voice on the phone when talking to Te’o, which he did quite regularly. Now that everyone knows the what, people are asking, “Why?”

What are the psychological aspects of this story? Why would someone create a fake profile and pretend to be someone else? How did Te’o fall for it, or sustain it? And what’s next? Some are saying that Te’o has legitimate grounds to sue Tuiasosopo for online fraud. Could he have a case? If it went to court, how would a jury view Te’o’s Michael McCann, 1/31/13 SPOR plight?

You’re born, and your life is great. Then, you get a little brother or sister and everything changes. Suddenly, time with the family is ripped between the two siblings. Toys must be shared. The television must be split between two pairs of eyeballs. Then you grow up and go to school. You have to live in your older brother’s shadow, or worry about your younger counterpart tattling on you for doing something out of line. Everyone goes through the traditional sibling rivalry, and by the time you become an adult and start pursuing your own life, the conflict typically falls by the wayside.

But not for John and Jim Harbaugh. Who cares about some adult brothers who are still going at it? Well, John and Jim are the coaches of the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, respectively. And it just so happens that those two teams are competing in this year’s Super Bowl. Winning this ultimate game would be the absolute pinnacle for any former athlete and professional coach. One of the brothers will win, and the other will lose, thus fueling an already likely sibling rivalry that will continue to go forward. 1/31/13 SPOR Dr. Jeanne Safer 17:00 Last Thursday, at the Winter XGames in Grand Junction, Colorado, 25-year-old snowmobiler Caleb Moore failed to land a backflip on his snowmobile resulting in a gruesome crash which led ultimately to his death, which was announced by his family today. It’s natural for athletes to compete at the highest levels possible, and in the extreme sports community a sense of one-ups-manship drives competitors to push the envelope of what is considered “make-able,” but how far is too far?

Do we now find extreme sports on a big enough stage that it’s time to create commission to determine safety standards?

Lance Pugmire 14:00 Hollywood denizens know best that Scientology is at once celebrity-laden and secretive. Author Lawrence Wright tries to unfurl both in his controversial new book - so controversial it won't be published in the UK or Canada. This despite the fact Wright's unauthorized history of the church used prominent former church members, including Oscar-winning filmmaker Paul Haggis, as primary sources on the record. Wright cites reams of research in detailing the life of Scientology founder, L.Ron Hubbard, as well as 200 interviews with those close to the Church of Scientology who reveal unflattering, even frightening, accounts of the control the church wields over its members.

In response, Scientology officials state, "The book is an error-filled, unsubstantiated, bigoted anti-Scientology book." They refer to Wright's atheism and call him bigoted. Yet Wright isn't alone in this assessment.

So why did he pursue this subject? How does his research into Scientology compare to other religions Wright has focused on? What's his reaction to the accusations from Scientology representatives? And why does so much of this story come back to 1/31/13 LIT Hollywood? Lawrence Wright 25:00:00

Israeli filmmaker Dror Moreh set out with an immodest proposal. He wanted on- camera interviews with all the former chiefs of 's secret service unit, Shin Bet, about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Somehow he pulled it off and secured lengthy, candid interviews with each of the six chiefs still alive. As Moreh explains, these were "the people with the power to shape history from behind the scenes. Living in the shadows, they have never spoken about their work in front of a camera before." Their perspective might surprise you.

How did Moreh make it happen? How does he compare a history told by Shin Bet to a history told by political leaders and civilians on either side of the conflict?

Archbishop José H. Gomez stripped Mahony of his administrative and public duties and accepted the resignation of bishop Thomas Curry, who allegedly assisted in the cover-up of church sexual abuse with Mahony. Gomez also agreed to fulfill a court order to deliver thousands of pages of confidential files related to Catholic priest sexual abuse.

Mahoney publicly apologized two weeks ago after the release of confidential church files showed that he had played a part in covering up sexual abuse in the church, and had kept evidence away from prosecution. In a blog post published Friday, Mahony expressed his frustration at being shamed by Gomez and argued that his archdiocese had been at the forefront of abuse victim protection. Gomez’s public rebuke continued Sunday when he addressed the Catholic community from the pulpit and in a letter.

What’s your reaction to Mahony’s explanations? Is it possible Church leadership Mary Gail Frawley- didn’t know any better how to deal with perpetrators of child sexual abuse? How could O'Dea, Jennifer 2/4/13 RELI Lastsomeone Thursday in such, the a cityposition of Whittier of (moral made) authorit a boldy moveseem regardingto have a amoral local disconnect? nature Hughes 13:00 preserve. Whittier purchased the land for this preserve, along with the mineral rights, using $9.3 million in funds opened up to the city by the passage of Proposition A. Proposition A stipulated that any land purchased must be used for conservation purposes, and thus a preserve was established.

However, now the preserve is on the table as a source of revenue, as Whittier and Matrix Oil Company are eyeing it for development and drilling. The arrival of bulldozers prompted outrage in environmentalists, as well as those convinced that this is in direct violation of Proposition A. Los Angeles County is coming down hard on Whittier, saying that the city doesn’t have the authority to decide what happens to the land, since it was purchased with county bonds. However, the city points out that the bond does not take into account mineral rights, which Whittier owns exclusively. Beyond the legal nuances of who owns what, there is also the issue of what parties would benefit from the newfound revenue, which could be upwards of $100 million per year.

The city is obviously pushing for this to beef up its budget, but the county stresses Gloria Molina, Jim 2/4/13 ENV that any financial rewards should go to county taxpayers, not the city itself. So who is Markman 19:00:00 On February 23rd Metro ExpressLanes opens the HOT (High Occupancy Toll) lanes on the I-10 freeway. The I-10 will adhere to most of the same confusing rules as the I- 110, but will the toll lanes actually relieve congestion or is Metro just trying to make money?

Metro ExpressLanes is primarily funded with a $210 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation. The funds have made two ExpressLanes in each direction by converting the HOV (High Occupancy Vehicle) lane and adding a new lane. The condition for the grant is the HOT lanes must allow for speeds over 45 mph at least 90% of the time. Currently, the 110 freeway is meeting that minimum requirement, according to Metro officials.

While carpoolers with at least three people are always able to use the ExpressLanes for free, two-person carpools will have to pay a toll during peak hours on the 10 freeway. Solo drivers in the ExpressLanes will be charged between $0.25 to $1.40 per mile, depending on the congestion at that moment. Single drivers who use the toll lanes less than four times a month will pay an additional $3 monthly for maintenance and revenue costs, but Metro is still analyzing the benefits and consequences of that fee and will discuss it more in March. If the ExpressLanes become overcrowded, tolls will increase to alleviate congestion in those lanes. Stephanie Metro estimates generating $18-20 million annually from the toll lanes.

Looking forward to the next presidential election, some big names have been bandied about. Even before the 2012 race was over, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Jeb Bush and Chris Christie were all mentioned as potential contenders for their respective parties. While Democrats and Republicans are at odds more than ever these days, all their possible candidates have one thing in common. They’re not Barack Obama.

Now, while some may think that’s a positive aspect, there’s one thing that Obama undeniably has over any other candidate in modern history. He energized and inspired the youth vote in a way that significantly contributed to his victory, particularly in 2008. None of the top tier candidates that have been discussed have the same ability to appeal to Millennials.

Hillary Clinton may appeal to young female voters, but what about their male counterparts? Joe Biden may be a hit in The Onion, but what about on the campaign trail? And Republicans have long had a problem connecting to the younger generation, no matter who the candidate is. Are there any younger politicians out there who can tap into this group in the same way that Barack Obama did? Can they also retain the other voting blocs, such as seniors and the middle-aged? Or does it Morley Winograd, 2/4/13 POLI have to be one or the other? Who do you think out there has the most youth appeal? Matt Rodriguez 22:00 Who knew that football and social media go together like chips and dip at a Super Bowl party? Everyone knows that the Super Bowl scores big viewer ratings for TV networks, but this year the Baltimore Ravens’ victory over the San Francisco 49ers also ignited more posting on Twitter, Facebook, and other social networks than ever before.

During the game, there were an estimated 47.7 million social media posts, according to Trendrr TV, which tracks social media activity. That means the rate of social network bustle during this year’s big game nearly tripled since the 2012 Super Bowl, which was the subject of approximately 17 million posts.

What explains the explosion of social media activity during this year’s Super Bowl? Are Twitter and Facebook simply more accessible to more people now? Or has there been a cultural shift in how society communicates on a daily basis? Has our perspective and appreciation of social media drastically changed since the previous 2/4/13 SPOR Super Bowl and if so, why? Mark Ghuneim 8:00

Anyone who spends time with toddlers know they can have active imaginations. Now a study shows some children as young as two are capable of telling minor fibs. Researchers in the journal of Developmental Psychology say it's the first time deception has been studied in children so young. They found 25 percent of children that age say little mistruths. It's not just to cover-up things, according to these experts, but rather to show how smart or capable they are. It could be indicative of advanced mental development. As children grow, so can lying.

It all started when Christopher Jordan Dorner, a former LAPD officer, posted a manifesto on his Facebook page. Dorner, who is fixating on being forced out of his job in 2009, listed dozens of targets in the document and promised to bring “unconventional and asymmetrical warfare” against any law enforcement personnel who got in his way. The violence has already been staggering.

Dorner has been connected to a double homicide in Orange County which occurred last weekend. The victims were Monica Quan and her fiancé, Keith Lawrence. Quan is the daughter of Randy Quan, a retired LAPD captain mentioned in Dorner’s manifesto; Dorner targeted Quan for his role in Dorner’s dismissal from the force. Then, very early Thursday morning, Dorner was connected to a shooting of two LAPD officers in Corona, who were protecting one of the other names on Dorner’s list. Shortly after that, two local officers were shot in Riverside, and Dorner is suspected of David Klinger, ambushing them. One of those officers has died, while others are in the hospital Rina Palta, Erika suffering from gunshot and graze wounds.

CC :14 What was meant to be a fun vacation got cut short when the engine room caught on fire Sunday morning. Ever since then, the boat has been without electricity and dependent only on generators. Water and food have been limited, and passengers are reportedly urinating in bags. People have taken to sleeping on the boat’s deck to escape the stifling heat inside the cabins without air conditioning. Tensions are running high, and medical experts are concerned that Triumph is basically a petri dish of disease and germs just floating in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico.

On the bright side, the end is in sight. The ship is about 25 miles or so from Mobile, Alabama, where it is being sent to port. The only problem is that it is being pulled by a tugboat against the wind. Carnival says it expects the boat to dock sometime between eight and 11 p.m. EST. But there’s another snag, as the boat initially left from Galveston, TX. Apparently, the plan is for buses to take passengers from Mobile elsewhere, although locals are calling for passengers to stay in town and then use the local airport to get home.

The year 2012 came and went without an apocalyptic disaster taking place, but that doesn’t mean a major catastrophe won’t still occur. If a devastating earthquake hit tomorrow and knocked out the power grid, how much food and water would you need for your family? Where’s the safest place to go in the wake of a disastrous event?

Not only has the California coastline shaped the state geographically, it has fundamentally influenced Californians and Americans in terms of economics, politics, social values and more. Award-winning journalist and environmental conservationist David Helvarg comprehensively examines the California coast’s heritage and impact on the United States in his new book, “The Golden Shore: California’s Love Affair with the Sea.”

In preparation for the book, Helvarg interviewed commercial fisherman, scientists and U.S. Navy officials among others. He also observed and reports on underwater exploratory science vessels, marine container ships, the San Diego Coast Guard’s nightly migrant patrol to scan for smugglers and other endeavors. 2/18/13 ENV David Helvarg 13:00 In his new book “The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change,” former Vice President and Nobel winner Al Gore draws upon his background and observation of the world to identify six issues causing the degradation of the modern world. These “six drivers” are economic globalization, worldwide digital communications, emerging sources of power that are causing a U.S.-centered system power shift, unsustainable economic growth, genetic and biotechnological advancement that is redefining the natural course of human life and evolution, and the disruption of earth’s ecosystems. Gore asserts that because of these drivers, the world is becoming more linked together and is collectively on a downward path of degradation. However, he writes, by analyzing these problems there is potential for change and changing the course of the world. Although these six problems are each given a chapter in his book, Gore also covers topics ranging from cows in Switzerland that text their owners when it’s time to breed, to genetic enhancement and population growth and income equality issues in the U.S.

2/18/13 LIT Al Gore 17:00 Just as it is today, California in the 1800’s was a place to reinvent yourself – perhaps more than once. Edward Muybridge was a man of with many hats, a series of professions and a half-dozen names. Muybridge – born Edward Muggeridge – was a bookseller, inventor, banker and even a murderer. But the calling that would earn him respect and notoriety – photography – also secured his place in history.

Muybridge’s friend and patron, the railroad tycoon Leland Stanford, was another reinvented, bigger-than-life figure in California history and founder of the Palo Alto university named for his dead son. A discussion between the two about Stanford’s beloved racehorses sparked a question: when a horse runs, do all four hooves leave the ground at any point? It was Muybridge who found a way to answer the question, thanks to innovative use of his camera. And in doing so, he originated the technique of stop-motion photography, paving the way to the invention of motion pictures years before Thomas Edison introduced his Kinetoscope.

The story of these two men, vagabond and tycoon, is every bit as cinematic as the art form they inspired. And in their intertwining journeys to California, they rewrote its 2/18/13 HIST history even as they were reinventing their own.

In the wake of 2012’s mass killings in Aurora, Colorado and Newtown, Connecticut, gun violence is in our consciousness more than ever in recent years. According to’s running tally of gun-related deaths in the U.S. since the Newtown shootings, since December 14, 2012, 1,935 Americans have been killed with a firearm. Are we seeing a trend toward more gun violence in our future, or are the recent tragedies outliers?

Rosenthal 13:00 In the early 1960’s, mind-altering drugs like psilocybin and LSD got a bad rap, thanks largely to experiments that spun out of control. Psychologists Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert notoriously unleashed their “turn on, tune in” philosophy on a culture that was eager to try the new miracle drug, but ill-prepared on their own to handle its effects. As a result, psychedelics were outlawed by 1970 and research into their potential benefits halted. But recently, interest in these drugs for clinical use has been revived.

New studies have shown that the use of LSD and other psychotropic drugs greatly reduces the stress, fear, anxiety and pain associated with advanced cancer, PTSD and other conditions. After just one dose of psilocybin, administered by a doctor under controlled circumstances (which, in a nod to Dr. Leary, can include plush sofas, Persian carpets and sitar music), patients report a sense of euphoria, emotional well- being, peace and optimism that can last a year or more, greatly changing their outlook even in the face of terminal illness. Some doctors and psychologists specializing in palliative care believe that the use of psychedelics can go a long way towards providing what they term a “good death” - one that implies a positive experience, free Anthony P. of end-of-life pain, stress and remorse. Bossis, Ph.D., Charles Grob, 2/19/13 HEAL You may not know it, but there s a plan to get a black box in your car. The National M.D. 18:00 Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is pushing for mandatory crash recorders for all cars. Some groups are bristling at this effort, namely the Electronic Frontier Foundation. They are worried that this will lead to tracking and recording of data that encroach on the privacy of drivers. For instance, what if you lend your car to a friend who proceeded to drive like a speed demon up and down the highway? If the data in the black box was accessed, then the information could make it back to your insurance company, resulting in a huge rate hike. And the black box would track more than just your speed, but if airbags are deployed, what seat belts are connected, the position of the brake and accelerator, and more.

With no regulations in place for how much information can be stored, critics of the plan are sincerely worried that these devices could be used for more harm than good. Supporters of the plan, however, point to the fact that most cars already have some form of a crash recorder, and that the amount of data gathered is routinely used to make cars safer for consumers. When it comes to the privacy issue, they indicate that the NHTSA doesn’t have the jurisdiction to access such information anyway. Clarence M.

When Buss purchased the Lakers in 1979 he had a vision of the ‘showtime’ era and immediately drafted Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson out of Michigan State. Johnson, along with Buss, went on to be part of 10 Lakers Championships as a player and owner. Under Buss’ leadership, the Lakers became part of the landscape of Southern California, bringing in names like Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, Karl Malone, and Dwight Howard.

During Buss’ reign, the Lakers were the NBA’s most successful franchise. Many former and current players formed strong bonds with the well-liked Buss.

The report states that nearly 17,000 people died from drug overdoses in 1999; in 2010 the number was almost 39,000. That's a 127% increase over the past 11 years.

Almost half of those deaths were due to opioid analgesics, such as OxyContin and Vicodin. Anti-anxiety medications including Valium were also common causes of overdose deaths.

Why have overdose deaths risen so significantly? The CDC speculates that many doctors and patients don’t realize pain management drugs can be addicting and that many deaths result from mismanagement of multiple prescription medications. California is one of the states that has an electronic database designed to monitor prescription drug use, with an eye to catching both pill-pushing doctors and doctor- shopping patients.

But is it being utilized, and if so, is it effective enough? Is the public well-informed about prescription drug abuse and overdosing? What are the signs of drug abuse? Natalie Strand, What are health care professionals and the federal government doing to prevent this M.D., Lynn 2/21/13 HEAL trend from continuing? Webster, M.D. 17:00 After weeks of negotiations, the Chamber of Commerce and the AFL-CIO (American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations) today agreed on principles for creating a new system for worker visas. This new system focuses on filling employment for lesser-skilled occupations. Although they are still hammering out details, business and labor groups have agreed on some common grounds for immigration reform.

In this proposed new system, American workers will still be given employment priority and information about job openings in lesser-skilled occupations will be more publicized. However, when employers are not able to fill the job opening with American workers, the process to hire foreign workers will be more efficient and not keep all workers in a permanent temporary status, providing labor mobility. Also, the groups call for more research and data on immigration and work visas be provided to the public.

How will this affect immigration reform? Will it take away jobs from American workers and open the doors for immigration? Is a new system feasible? Who benefits from Jeff Hauser, Mark 2/21/13 ECON this new system? Krikorian 7:00

President Obama plans to announce a big and bold scientific initiative to map the human brain. According to The New York Times, it will try to achieve for brain research what the Human Genome Project did for genetics. The report says Congress will be asked to allocate $3 billion dollars over ten years. In his State of the Union address last week, Obama said, "Every dollar we invested to map the human genome returned $140 to our economy" - meaning such projects combine scientific endeavors with economic benefits. But should we ask for a money-back guarantee?

When looking at California's investments in stem cell research - funding allocated thanks to Proposition 71 in 2004 - government sometimes has a poor track record of making good science materialize despite billions spent. What other science has government been successful at managing and investing? What about NASA getting to the moon? Or nuclear research? Could cancer research be better off if it were a centralized project of the National Institute of Health? Or has a laissez faire approach Michael Roukes, 2/21/13 SCI been more fruitful? Daniel Sarewitz 23:00 It has been seven years since Sony Corp. released a new version of its PlayStation (PS) game console, and the entertainment market has undoubtedly changed considerably in that time.

Not only does Sony now have to compete with other console proprietors like Xbox- maker Microsoft, but also with smartphones, tablets, and other mobile gaming devices hoping to carve out their share of the market. Some games for mobile devices are given away for free or for a $1, which is virtually free compared to a PS3 game that sells for nearly $60. Prices for the new PlayStation games are not yet officially announced, but Sony will have to work a little harder to convince consumers to fork over anything close to PS3 prices. With console sales slowing, some industry observers are wondering how well home video game consoles will survive in a constantly changing marketplace.

Sony certainly is not giving up on the market anytime soon and will likely fight hard to keep the PlayStation relevant. Accordingly, the new PlayStation exploits advancements in networking and cloud technology. One new feature targeting gamers who are also social networkers is the “Share” button on the new Playstation controllers, which allows players to instantly share their game status and chat on social media sites like Facebook.

2/21/13 ENT The new device will also offer gamers the ability to stream games live over the Tim Stevens 16:00

Automobile website has released the top ten cars bought in Los Angeles for 2012 based on sex.

Looking at the two lists, it appears that when it comes to cars and trucks, socio- normative gender roles are holding on strong. For instance, the list for females is comprised of smaller vehicles and no trucks. For men, on the other hand, trucks take up more than half the results. While this may not be surprising, some of the nuances of the data do have interesting implications. It seems there is a connection between domestic automobiles and men, as there are only three foreign vehicles that made it to the top ten. Also, the top result for women is the Volkswagen Beetle. This is unfortunate for VW, as the 2012 Beetle was geared towards attracting male consumers. Why doesn’t that car appeal to men? And why do men buy so many trucks, especially in L.A. where parking is notoriously awful?

Why are women more likely to buy foreign cars? Do you have a “male” or “female” car? Do you think there is a connection between one’s sex and the choice of a 2/21/13 GEND vehicle? Jessica Caldwell 8:00

On Oscar night, @TheOnion tweeted: “Everyone else seems afraid to say it, but that Quvenzhané Wallis is kind of a c---, right? #Oscars2013.” The tweet was taken down within an hour of publication, according to Steve Hannah, The Onion’s CEO who apologized for the quip yesterday.

Regarding the tweet, Hannah wrote, “It was crude and offensive—not to mention inconsistent with The Onion’s commitment to parody and satire, however biting. No person should be subjected to such a senseless, humorless comment masquerading as satire.” Nevertheless, backlash against The Onion for the tweet has been fierce with some demanding the name of the individual writer who wrote the comment about 2/26/13 MEDI RepWallis.. Linda Sanchez, D Cerritos, has introduced a bill to Congress outlying a means Alyssa Rosenberg 23:00 to fund gun buyback efforts nationally. Since the Newtown shooting, local enforcement agencies have spearheaded buyback programs as a means to reduce the number of guns out in the population.

Incentives include cash or other forms of compensation, such as the retail gift cards handed out to buyback participants in Los Angeles. However, the financial backing to run a buyback with staff, logistics and rewards is not always easy to come by. That’s why Rep. Sanchez has called for a 10 percent tax on any sales of weapons considered concealable, like handguns, which would funnel into these programs to make them monetarily viable.

But critics of the proposal call into question the effectiveness of buybacks in general. They are quick to point out that there hasn’t been a documented drop in gun violence after these buybacks, and that the guns returned are antiques and unlikely to fall into the hands of a criminal. Still, Los Angeles law enforcement state that the collection of 2,000 firearms in December via these buybacks is a testament to their success.

How effective are these programs? Are they making a difference? Should taxes on Lee Baca, Sam 2/26/13 LAW gun sales be used to try and curb the spreading of guns, or is that counterintuitive? Paredes 25:00:00 It would be tough to overstate the level of interest in tomorrow's high court hearing on voting rights. The case is challenging a historic piece of legislation. In 1965, the creation of the Voting Rights Act was heralded as a landmark victory for civil rights. It outlawed discriminatory polling practices that were commonplace, particularly in the Deep South.

Now, some regions - including the petitioners of this case, Shelby County, Alabama - say the Act is for a time that has passed. They argue the federal government should no longer have oversight into the local issue of polling places or redistricting. There is a long list of stakeholders watching the case intently. It touches on politics, the law, race and history.

Is the federal government still needed to police discrimination? Are there still racist practices affecting elections? Why are political parties paying close attention to this Nancy Abudu, 2/26/13 LAW Evercase? since 1909 Florida has believed that any records made in a public agency Joshua Thompson 14:00 should be available to the public.

Should websites be allowed to post these III, Holden Green 17:00 You’d think a company that traffics in internet innovation would embrace telecommuting. But Yahoo’s new CEO Marissa Mayer has appeared to put the kibosh on employees phoning – or Skyping – it in. Currently, some of the Yahoo team work remotely full time, while some are occasional telecommuters. But in a recent company memo, Yahoo’s head of human resources informed its nearly 12,000 workers that starting in June, every employee will be expected to make face time full time by reporting to work at a company office five days a week.

The memo pointed to the company’s aim to make work time "more productive, efficient and fun." Studies have shown that telecommuting can be a money saver for companies, and that workers are no less productive at home using Skype, e-mail and other modern conveniences.

Employees with families appreciate having flextime options and are often willing to take a pay cut in exchange. So why the throwback attitude? Mayer has said that she wants her teams to focus more on communication and collaboration; presumably, she’s looking to the new policy to foster more watercooler conversations, bullpen sessions and overall creative spark. Mayer has a job ahead of her to turn Yahoo’s misfortunes around.

Will this method prove successful? Or will it result in a workplace full of resentful, unproductive employees? Does Yahoo risk losing valuable talent who don’t want to relocate or commute? Is it possible for a company to foster team spirit without having Beth A. its workers onsite? If you’re a Yahoo telecommuter, will this decision make you Livingston, Rose 2/26/13 ECON reconsider?
