"The legends of the Ten Lost Tribes still speak to us from the distant past," says Jeff Goldman, instructor for Temple Sinai of Glendale's adult education class A Romp Through the Diaspora: In Search of the Ten Lost Tribes, which will meet for four Wednesday evenings beginning Feb. 7. After Assyrian exile in 722 B.C., the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel disappeared from Biblical account. "Modern archeological and ethnological research, as well as remarkable DNA evidence, have provided some tantalizing hints as to where the Ten Tribes went and where they may be now," said Goldman, who has conducted extensive studies in meso-American and Southwestern Native American archeology, comparative religion and sociological and psychological implications of ritual and myth.

I love La Cañada. The hot June days. Running into friends. Catching up on the news. Morning coffee in the 91011 is a unique blend of engineers, lawyers and "industry" types. So … it was a warm, early June morning in La Cañada. The coffee place was abuzz with the latest news — the British Academy of Medical Sciences had issued a new report. The report urged approval of human-animal embryos for "scientific experiments." Human DNA would be implanted into animal eggs.

I am always intrigued by new catch phrases that get everyone?s attention. Right now the flavor of the month is ?anti-aging.? You?ve got to love that one; everyone wants to be forever youthful so we?ll try anything touted as anti-aging. But when it comes to slowing down the aging process, we have just two things to work with ? our DNA and our perspective. DNA works as a pre-determined span of years we are likely to live. It decides the general composition of our bodies and where our wrinkles will go, courtesy of Mom and Pop. We won?

The vehicle for all of life's variety and complexity has found a new driver in La Cañada's Frances Arnold. In her laboratories at Caltech, Arnold is harnessing the evolutionary process to create new proteins and enzymes that have the potential to wean the world off of fossil fuels, advance doctors' understanding of disease and addiction and solve other pressing social problems. Like an animal breeder working at the molecular level, Arnold manages the growth and reproduction of microscopic life-forms to reshape them for practical scientific purposes - a yeast that could effectively convert plants into jet fuel or plastics, for instance, or a microbe with the power to help map the human brain.

When illustrator and animator Duncan Rouleau describes the adventures of his star character, Ben Tennyson, it sounds something like a childhood daydream. "He gets a watch that falls from outer space and it is filled with alien DNA," the La Cañada Flintridge resident said. "He does not known how to use it, but when he puts it on he can move the dials around and he injects himself with alien DNA and for 10 minutes has those alien abilities." But while the premise may be fantasy, "Ben 10" the brand is not. The Cartoon Network animated series, a smash hit since its 2006 debut, has grown into a $200 million franchise complete with complementary computer games and a Spaghettios promotion.

The sketch was created using clay reconstruction technology. The woman's skull was found on Dec. 26 in the burned-out area below Angeles Forest Highway, two days after hikers discovered a male skull with an apparent bullet hole in the same area, officials said.
