Pedro Ramirez Vazquez, an architect who changed the face of Mexico City by designing a number of landmark modernist structures, died on Tuesday, his 94th birthday. The cause was pneumonia, according to Mexico's National Council for Culture and the Arts. Ramirez Vazquez was known for stunningly original designs that blended a European modernist sensibility with pre-Columbia aesthetics. His most famous modernist buildings, all in Mexico City, include the Basilica of Guadalupe, one of the country's holiest shrines; the National Museum of Anthropology, distinguished by a vast, square concrete umbrella; and Azteca Stadium, open since the mid-1960s and home to Mexico's national soccer team.

The attendance figures, part of a court filing in the divorce between Dodgers owner Frank McCourt and his estranged wife, Jamie, provide rare insight into a question Major League Baseball hasn't answered in 17 years: How many people attend games? In 1993, in consolidating business operations between the National League and American League, MLB standardized the definition of attendance as tickets sold, not tickets used.

Vector Graphic, a pioneer in the personal computer business, said Monday that it will liquidate under Chapter 7 of the U. S. Bankruptcy Code. The decision comes a year after the Westlake Village-based company stopped making computer equipment and nearly 14 months after it filed a petition under Chapter 11 of the bankruptcy code, which permits a company to reorganize while keeping creditors at bay. Vector Graphic said no money is available to be distributed to unsecured creditors or stockholders.
