Just a few months ago, the cooking school business was deflating like a punctured souffle. But at several culinary academies around Los Angeles, enrollment has taken a turn for the better. Spurred by out-of-work cooking enthusiasts seeking training for food industry jobs and by foodies brushing up on their skills so they can eat well without paying restaurant prices, sales are starting to recover -- even bouncing to pre-recession levels. "People are taking advantage of the economic downturn and looking to change careers," said Eric Crowley, who with his wife, Jennie Shields Crowley, owns Chef Eric's Culinary Classroom in Los Angeles.

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.

It's more than a little ironic that the same Arizona Legislature that spearheaded a ruthless, racially charged campaign against illegal immigrants also banned K-12 ethnic studies classes on the grounds that they promote hatred and division. Who knew Arizona's Republican majority, as expert as it is at hyperbole and invective, was so committed to fostering healthy race relations in the Grand Canyon State? Last month, after a court fight against the ban, the governing board of the Tucson Unified School District pulled the plug on its Mexican American studies program, which teachers say was designed to help middle school and high school students navigate in a complex, multiethnic world.

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.)

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.
