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.

A new study shows that when airlines such as JetBlue, Spirit, Frontier, Alaska and Southwest launch service on an existing domestic route, the average price from all carriers drops as much as 67%. It's good news for travelers, but aviation experts say most popular routes are still dominated by the four biggest carriers: United, Delta, Southwest and the soon-to-be-merged American and US Airways.

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.

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.

I've been a runner for more than 30 years, but I'm something of a serial monogamist when it comes to fitness classes. (At the moment, I'm hooked on Ken Tietjen's classes at my neighborhood Pilates studio, Whole Body Fitness.) But I know what it's like to be on the prowl for a new class. 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 )

In particular, Lucia Eames ensured that their famed Pacific Palisades house - considered one of the pinnacles of modern residential design - remained as a monument not only to the couple's sense of architecture and design, but also to the way they approached their work.

The incident marked the second time Lopez had clashed with military supervisors over the issue of leave - he had been granted less than two days when his mother died in November - and the latest such denial left him furious, the official said.

Healthcare advocates Tuesday urged the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to set aside at least $11 million in additional funding for free medical services for low-income residents - including immigrants lacking legal status - who remain uninsured under Obamacare.
