Appearing in a Pasadena courtroom, Babatunsin Olukunle, 26, was held to answer on a single felony charge of recklessly causing a fire of a structure or forest.

On any given night, youths at the Amani Children’s Home in Moshi, Tanzania can look up in the sky and see the moon and stars, but that’s as close as most will ever come to understanding the universe and its scientific wonders. Many of them have never been to school, let alone sat for a lesson on the planets or seen evidence of space exploration. So when Paulo Younse, a robotics engineer from JPL, visited the orphanage in January, he took the universe to them. Younse set off Dec. 30 on a three-week African excursion, which included a climb to the frigid peaks of Mt. Kilimanjaro, a four-day safari in the Serengeti and swimming with dolphins in Zanzibar.

Drive through any given La Cañada neighborhood late at night and it is easy to see which streets expect garbage pick-up the following day. This is convenient for the homeowner ? just put those trash cans out the night before because the next morning will be typically hectic. But among the garbage is also the recycle bin, where credit history is waiting to be picked up by an enterprising crook who is talented at putting small pieces of torn paper together. According to Clarence Jorif, special agent with the U.S. Secret Service, there are people who either steal recycle bins outright or, cloaked by night, just dig through the piles of paper left in those bins and pull out documents with the potential for ID theft.

A writer at the Los Angeles Times mentioned "swag suites" in a list of activities that have become part of the feverish week of preparation for Oscar night. Last week, I found myself in an elevator, standing next to a glamorous star of the hit television series "Desperate Housewives." We were riding up to the eighth floor of the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel, on our way to the Awards Suites, an exclusive exhibition of wares and services, available only to a select group of Academy Award nominees and celebrities.
