Although Los Angeles is home to one of the most dynamic art scenes in the world, its leading art museums continue to lag behind those of smaller cities in annual attendance, according to a new survey out Tuesday. Only two Southern California institutions, the Getty Center and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, made the top-100 list in the Art Newspaper's international survey of museum attendance. With 1,205,685 visitors last year, the Getty came in 33rd, behind not just the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York with more than 5 million but also San Francisco's De Young Museum with 2 million and the Art Institute of Chicago at 1.6 million.

On the cover of the Weeknd's new record, "Kiss Land," singer Abel Tesfaye stares back with his face cocked upward. For a guy who spent 2011 (the year of his three free online albums) hiding his identity from the media, it's a profound about-face. That look signals a new vulnerability for the Toronto experimental R&B singer on this remarkable album. He once hid behind a scrim of anonymous sex, drugs and emotional bleakness. But here's a young man fessing up to the pain that makes those dark nights so alluring.

WASHINGTON - When prominent Latino activists meet with President Obama, there's one White House staff member present whom many of them have known since she was a child. Julie Chavez Rodriguez grew up handing out leaflets and knocking on doors with her grandfather, Cesar Chavez, whose campaign to organize farmworkers still inspires today's Latino leaders. As deputy director of the Office of Public Engagement, Rodriguez runs Obama's organizing efforts in support of immigration reform and supervises Latino outreach.

If there is one thing that Chivas USA has learned in 2010, it is that the team needs to be better in 2011. Year-end awards, in other words, will be thin on the ground when the Major League Soccer regular season comes to a close in two weeks. Having failed to reach the playoffs for the first time in five years and having won only eight games, including Saturday night's 3-0 victory over Toronto FC in Carson, Chivas USA requires a substantial makeover. Part of that will come about naturally, with the departure, for instance, of U.S. national team defender Jonathan Bornstein, who is joining the UANL Tigres in Mexico, and the likely retirement of a player or two. The team features a trio of 30-somethings in all-star goalkeeper Zach Thornton, 36, and defenders Ante Jazic, 34, and Alex Zotinca, 33. Any or all of them might decide to call it a career.

As pressure builds for Mitt Romney to release additional tax returns, a new poll suggests a majority of Americans agree that the Republican presidential candidate should disclose more about his financial history. A USA Today/Gallup poll conducted Wednesday night found that 54% of adults thought Romney should release more than the two years of returns he had already agreed to make public. Still, 42% of those surveyed said they did not expect the tax forms to reveal information that could damage Romney's campaign.

Small businesses in the Western region that includes California took out more U.S.-backed loans than ever during the government's last fiscal year, but they didn't spend much of it in a way that generated new jobs, analysts said. The Small Business Administration said companies in the region, which also covers Arizona, Nevada, Hawaii and Guam, borrowed $6.7 billion in loans guaranteed by the agency. Firms in Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties took out loans totaling $1.5 billion, which the SBA called a "robust" amount.

There are still many billions of dollars to be made in the old oil patch, even with the world far more focused on alternative and renewable sources of energy. But the business of refining that oil into various fuels is still a hard way to make a buck. That's one of the lessons investors might draw from Chevron Corp.'s fourth-quarter earnings report, released Friday. The San Ramon, Calif.-based oil giant raked in a net profit of $5.12 billion, or $2.58 a share. But losses in its refinery business during the period meant its profit fell below both its 2010 fourth-quarter performance and Wall Street expectations.

As the countdown clock toward a deal to avert a federal shutdown neared zero, and for all the talk of reducing the size of government and scaling back federal spending, Democrats complained Friday that House Republicans were again fixated an age-old sticking point: Abortion. "Republicans want to shut down the government because they want to make it harder for women to obtain the health services they need," Sen. Harry Reid, the majority leader, said Friday on the Senate floor. At issue is a provision, known as Title X, that sends federal dollars to Planned Parenthood for family planning and health services such as cancer screenings.
