Orange County wasn't born yesterday. But most of its high-rise hotels were born after 1974--the year that California adopted an ordinance mandating automatic sprinkler systems in new buildings taller than 75 feet.

MINNEAPOLIS -- In 1974, the year I was elected Minnesota's secretary of state, my state was the first in the nation to implement election-day registration. Over 24 years in office, I supervised a registration process that consistently gave our state the highest voter turnout rate in the nation, with no increase in election fraud. On Nov. 5, voters in California will decide on election-day voter registration.

It has been almost 30 years since Pele -- aka Edson Arantes do Nascimento -- played his last soccer match, an exhibition at Giants Stadium in New Jersey, cheered on by a crowd of 75,000. Pele played the first half for the New York Cosmos and the second half for Santos, his former Brazilian club. During the game, it began to rain. The next day, a newspaper headline read: "Even the sky was crying." On a recent day in the three-time world champion's new office in Sao Paulo, no one was crying.

Auto safety regulators are pushing for new equipment to protect motorists from their biggest threat: themselves. They're aiming to keep drunk drivers off the road with the help of onboard technology that immobilizes their cars. New vehicles may soon come with systems to help prevent collisions. And engines may not start unless occupants buckle their seat belts. It's all part of a push by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to use technology to reduce traffic fatalities.
