UCLA Health encourages a little goofing off on company time. But inefficiency is the last thing on the agenda. At least three days a week, employees from 10 departments at UCLA Health facilities gather as the music gets cranked up for a 10-minute workout. It's called Bruin Break, an adaptation of the "instant recess" initiative developed to motivate "mouse potatoes" by the late Dr. Antronette Yancey, a UCLA public health professor. One recent morning, physical therapists, administrative staff, the lift team (as in lifting patients)

The U.S. economy will eventually rebound from the Great Recession. Millions of American workers will not. What some economists now project — and policymakers are loath to admit — is that the U.S. unemployment rate, which stood at 9.6% in August, could remain elevated for years to come. The nation's job deficit is so deep that even a powerful recovery would leave large numbers of Americans out of work for years, experts say. And with growth now weakening, analysts are doubtful that companies will boost payrolls significantly any time soon.

Like a character actor who never gets a starring role, Oxnard is forever being cast in bit parts. Johnny Carson, for one, made the city the butt of many jokes on "The Tonight Show." The ignominy continues with the movie "Hurlyburly," starring Sean Penn as Eddie, a Hollywood casting director whose life is careening out of control. While Penn's portrayal of the loathsome Eddie won him the Best Actor award at the Venice Film Festival, Oxnard continues to be typecast as a rube.
