Welcome to the new online home of the Los Angeles Times readers' representative. Many of The Times' blogs have already moved to this new platform, so it was time for me to make the leap, too. In addition to a new look, I'm going to try a new approach to the blog. As the title line says above, this will be the place for reader questions and comments. I'll also share news from and about the newsroom. Our social media team will be contributing as well. In the menu to the right, readers will find links to frequently sought information from the newsroom and the company.

The Supreme Court is tackling two aspects of the healthcare reform law Wednesday. One is the subject of an editorial by The Times -- whether expanding Medicaid coerces states to do something Congress doesn't have the power to order them directly to do. Not surprisingly, given its general position on the law , The Times' editorial board argues that the expansion is legal. The other issue is whether the entire law should be struck down if the individual mandate to buy coverage were held unconstitutional.

NOTE: This is a blog about two guys attempting to lose weight over a six-week period.  They kicked off their weight loss "strategies" on Jan. 10 . A commenter named dpnowell is upset. "Are you serious? You weigh 165 pounds and write an article about your 'beer belly'?" he complained after my blog post Monday. "Two guys lose weight? what!?" he wrote. "I feel cheated. " Poor dpnowell, and poor America. Because this is part of the problem. A guy says he wants to lose some weight before the end of the year, maybe change the way he does things -- and instead of getting a little support from his friend, the Internet, the Web proves, once again, to be an unreliable amigo.

One of the nice parts of my job is I get to interact with a large number of people in the building. And although I have written hundreds of items for The Times, this series has gotten the best reaction among my co-workers and friends than anything else I've done. People who hadn't any reason to do more than say hi are now passing by saying, "Lookin' good, Slim" or "I love what you're writing. " It's hilarious and very supportive, and you can see that they're genuinely rooting for Jimmy and me. RELATED: Temptation lurks at every corner None of which would have happened if I didn't have a big mouth and announced my plans, which I recommend to you. Add a little pressure to your goal.

Megumi Sasaki was looking for the white bicycle helmet. Working patiently, a flock of seabirds nagging incessantly overhead, the 36-year-old mother of two sifted through the rubble of the only home she had ever known, taken from her by the devastating wave that swallowed this seaside community on March 11. She had bought the helmet for her daughter Sara's seventh birthday. But she had hidden it in a family car swept away by the tsunami that rolled across northeast Japan on the heels of a killer magnitude 9 quake.

A crooked clock tower. A science building with defect-riddled labs. A running track that cracked and athletic field turf that wrinkled. The list of construction errors ? from goofy blunders to serious mistakes ? across the nine campuses of the Los Angeles Community College District is stunning. A recent series in The Times looked at the district's much-needed construction overhaul, financed by $5.7 billion in voter-approved bond money, and estimated that it has lost tens of millions of dollars due to bad workmanship, repairs of mistakes and poor planning.

DETROIT — The effect of the Japanese crisis on the U.S. economy is far greater than realized, a top trade group said. American companies and industries rely heavily on Japanese-made automotive products and high-tech electronics, but the U.S. Business and Industry Council said in a report released Wednesday that there was an even greater dependence on less well-known Japanese products. These include industrial equipment like machine tools and energy-generating turbines. In 2009, Japan accounted for about 15% of the turbines for generating energy sold in the U.S., up more than 2,000% from 1997, according to the council.

For moderate social drinkers, hopping on the wagon for a month shouldn't have been that daunting of a task. Not just any moderate social drinkers, but a handful of men and women who are exceptionally fit, as in training-for-a-marathon fit. These are people used to discipline and healthy lifestyles, people who can get through a rigorous boot camp class without hurling. Yet some found that wagon trip much more uncomfortable than they thought, and didn't even last a month.

In 1961, Debra Reels-Mothershed entered kindergarten at Johnson Elementary School in Southeast San Diego. In 1988, she is still going to school there, only now she is the head of the class. "I am now teaching the kids of some of the people I went to school with, in the same classroom," she said. For Thomas Rinde it has been 32 long, hard years since he began teaching, but he has survived, thanks in part to the support of his students and his wife.
