Practically no suburb shall be left behind in thriving craft beer movement. The past two weeks alone have welcomed two new outfits to the ale-destination that is the Inland Empire. Joining a region already home to Hangar 24, Black Market, Dale Bros, and I&I Brewing, among others, are Ontario's Chino Valley Brewery (1630 E Francis St, Unit J) and, only about 10 miles away, Claremont's alliteration-friendly Claremont Craft Ales (1420 N. Claremont Blvd, Suite 204C). The latter opens Saturday, and Chino Valley has been welcoming customers since the end of July.

Yoga, which is known for good things like enlightenment and healing, is suddenly under attack from several quarters. John Friend, the founder of one of yoga's fastest-growing styles, stepped down after he was accused of sexual indiscretions. New York Times science writer William Broad, in his best-selling book "The Science of Yoga," says some yoga poses can wreck your body. Worse, they don't necessarily help you lose weight. Even Gwyneth Paltrow has traded in her yoga mat for a personal trainer.

In the arts world, they call her “the dancing philanthropist.” And now, with her latest and largest endowment to date, Glorya Kaufman has a new dance partner in the University of Southern California. Her groundbreaking gift for the USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance will establish the first new endowment-funded school at the university in 40 years. (The last was the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, which opened in 1973 with a gift from Walter H. Annenberg.)

If you were trying to conjure up a perfect group cardio workout, it just might look like one of the classes at ElliptiFit. Classes at the boutique fitness studio in Los Angeles offer a low-impact, full-body workout. There's upbeat music. Individualized instruction. It's all over in a brisk 45 minutes. And, best of all, classes take place under low lights, so you don't have to worry about sticking out like a sore thumb if you've never seen an elliptical machine before, much less danced with one. ElliptiFit is the brainchild of owner and head fitness instructor Annette Comerchero, who says her goal was "the best possible workout you can get, in the shortest amount of time possible, having the most fun. " Check, check and check.

Katie Reynolds leads a double life. By day, she wears sweat pants and a cap while she attends classes at Long Beach State, where she has a 3.5 grade-point average as a communications major. By night, she wears bright red lipstick, half a bottle of mascara and little more than a bikini as she dances in front of 19,000 people. She's a Laker Girl. Reynolds keeps her opposing realities separate. "I typically don't tell people what I do," she said. That means while her classmates are discussing the previous night's Lakers game, she'll pretend she wasn't sitting courtside.

There are special schools for children whose IQs are 40 points lower than average. We give these children small classes, special buses, special programs galore, and what do we do for the children whose IQs deviate in the other direction? Some kids who are blessed with IQs that much higher than average feel they are punished for it. They are made to "learn" and "relearn" something they knew before they sat down in class. When they get really bored, they start trouble just to see if they can get out of the dull school, and then their motivation for learning is down the tubes completely.

Chris Lewis hunkered down in front of a laptop at Cal State Long Beach, determined to find a few open psychology classes. The pickings were somewhat slim. But for Lewis and nearly 1,000 other spring semester enrollees on campus, filling out a schedule isn't the only challenge: They must navigate an academic and social landscape that, for the vast majority of other students, has been in full swing since fall. More than 60,300 applications were submitted to the California State University system's spring term, which gets underway Monday.

As a children's librarian, I strongly disagree with Jacqueline Chanda's use of reading as a punishment for unruly students. ("Emergency Teachers Recall Lessons of First Year on the Job" by Garry Abrams, June 19). Maybe it is something they dislike but she doesn't seem to be trying very hard to reverse that idea. Has she ever tried reading aloud to her class or sharing books with them? She might be pleasantly surprised at the results. Teachers with a positive attitude toward reading can inspire their classes with that same attitude.
