If you see Kevin Prince crack a smile on the field for no apparent reason, you might have a pretty good idea which teammate is behind it. He's Joseph Fauria, UCLA's 6-foot-7 tight end and resident good humor man. "He's always trying to make somebody laugh," Prince said of the sophomore transfer from Notre Dame. "We've got inside jokes going back to high school." The former Encino Crespi High teammates also have a history of big plays dating to their freshman year in the San Fernando Valley, when Prince would lob passes into the end zone and his towering teammate would grab them over considerably smaller defensive backs.

The words “North Carolina State” have to make a UCLA fan cringe. The Bruins met the Wolfpack in the 1974 Final Four. John Wooden had seven consecutive NCAA championships. He didn't win an eighth straight. It could work out better today. The Bruins won't have to face David Thompson today. They will be dealing with pitcher Logan Jernigan in the College World Series at 5 p.m. PDT. Coach Elliott Avent hemmed and hawed before naming a starter. The Wolfpacks' rotation thins out considerably after Carlos Rodon, who threw eight shutout innings against North Carolina Sunday.

With airlines cracking down on the size of carry-ons, more passengers are checking their bags. And the rough treatment that luggage receives from baggage handlers and airport carousels has hard-sided suitcases making a comeback. Atlantic's new Hardside Travel Vault is state of the art. It's made of the same scratch-resistant, all-weather material used on the bottoms of downhill skis. Durable in-line skate wheels make it easy to maneuver.

Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley said Thursday he will prosecute medical marijuana dispensaries for over-the-counter sales, targeting a practice that has become commonplace under an initiative approved by California voters more than a decade ago. "The vast, vast, vast majority, about 100%, of dispensaries in Los Angeles County and the city are operating illegally, they are dealing marijuana illegally, according to our theory," he...

We knew the courtroom battle between Apple and Samsung would be epic, but who could have guessed it would be so entertaining? On Thursday, U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh wondered aloud if one of Apple's lawyers was smoking crack. The judge was not concerned about his health, but rather frustrated over Apple's submission of a 75-page briefing that outlined more than 20 additional witnesses Apple planned to call in the four hours it had left before the jury. "I mean come on. Seventy-five pages!
