IT was a nail-biter of a month. But at last the news is in: The idle chitchat, the intense speculation and competitive jockeying are over, and families throughout the Los Angeles area are either exulting in victory or wallowing in defeat.

Human migration from Asia to the Americas occurred in three stages, with a 20,000-year layover on the frozen strip of land called Beringia in what is now the Bering Strait, researchers said this week. Most scientists had believed that the migration occurred in one continuous passage, but archaeological and genetic evidence indicates otherwise, anthropologist Connie Mulligan of the University of Florida and her colleagues reported Wednesday in the online journal PLoS ONE.
