Call it the audacity of chalk. President Obama's NCAA bracket is conspicuously devoid of upsets, with all of the top seeds in the college basketball championship advancing to the Final Four. Three of those four No. 1 seeds -- Duke, Pittsburgh and Ohio State -- also just so happen to hail from swing states Obama hopes to carry again in 2012. But the president ultimately picks the team from a deeply red state, Kansas, to win it all, defeating Ohio State in the championship game. "I think that Kansas has more firepower," Obama said of the pick.

After spilling coffee onto my couch, I craved an expedient solution to the bane of small-space dwellers: Where to place a cup of coffee when scanning the morning news? I loathed the idea of a side table with gangly legs. I covet every inch in my 550-square-foot, one-bedroom Los Feliz flat. Solution: Convert a leaded glass window into a shelf/table using wall brackets as support. I wanted the support brackets to be as unobtrusive as possible so the shelf would appear to float.

Whether you're constructing a deck, adding a porch or building a gazebo, the job begins with footings that penetrate your climate's frost line. In many cases, a simple posthole footing is ideal. This type of footing is quick, easy and relatively inexpensive. If you plan on an enclosed addition, of course, you'll want a continuous footing that surrounds a crawl space beneath the floor. Anything short of a major structural addition will rest on simple posts and spot footings.

An upside-down American flag is considered a signal of distress. And that's the feeling Robert Rosebrock had when he looked up and noticed the red, white and blue street-lamp banners outside the Department of Veterans Affairs' West Los Angeles Medical Center were in disarray - tattered, tangled around the poles or flapping upside-down in the breeze. "It was disgraceful," said Rosebrock, a 71-year-old U.S. Army veteran who arranged for the flags' installation 11 months ago using $12,000 donated by Metabolic Studio, a charitable arm of the Annenberg Foundation.
