Robert Larson photographed this intriguing scene back on April 21. He says: "This was taken in Van Nuys. A bunch of my best friends live in a house that we all lovingly refer to as the Manor. The Manor had two goats, Colonel Jeffrey Weathers ...  and Karen. The goat in this image is the newest addition to the family... affectionately named 'Baby Goat.' A name which will probably stick throughout the duration of her life. " Larson took the picture with a Pentax K1000 and Ilford HP5 Plus 35mm film.

Air quality regulators, embarking on a bold new strategy to reduce smog in Southern California, want to hold the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach responsible for their pledges to cut pollution from thousands of trucks, ships and trains carrying goods to and from the nation's largest port complex. If a rule proposed by the South Coast Air Quality Management District is adopted, it could open the door to similar regulations on other facilities that are magnets for truck and rail traffic, such as warehouses, distribution centers and rail yards.

So we're going to do some of the work for you. Each week, we'll try a new class and let you know what it's like. And, please, let me know if you have suggestions by email or on Twitter ( @mmacvean )

Officials of New York's Guggenheim Museum have scaled back a controversial plan to build a high-rise addition to the 1959 Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Fifth Avenue landmark. According to plans unveiled Tuesday, the new museum wing will be 10 stories high instead of 11 and will not feature a much-criticized overhang jutting out above the low-slung, circular Guggenheim. Officials said the new design is based on plans that Wright himself made in the '50s for an addition to the museum.
