DreamWorks Animation has a bunch of cavemen to thank for getting some fresh Wall Street love. Analysts responded positively to news that the Glendale studio had scored with its prehistoric feature "The Croods," which helped drive first-quarter profit to $5.6 million.

After closing at $19.28 on Tuesday, shares climbed 7% in after-hours trading after the studio reported financial results.

Officials have embraced a "Daylight Rule" to ban kissing and other affectionate displays between students, but the American Civil Liberties Union says the rule smacks of violating constitutional rights. The rule, which means daylight must be visible between students, was enacted at Nederland School last week. About 270 students, grades 7 through 12, attend the rural mountain school. But David Miller, regional legal director of the ACLU, said disciplining students over the rule could threaten constitutional rights of privacy and freedom of association.

From Johannesburg, South Africa — The geometry of the World Cup can be complicated this early in the tournament, especially when the straight line between the ball and the net is not necessarily the path that this particularly stubborn sphere will follow. It was David Miller who started these mathematical thoughts spinning Thursday. Miller, one of the most literary and respected of international sportswriters, was at Soccer City in Johannesburg to see Argentina multiply the problems facing South Korea, which the Albicelestes did comfortably by winning, 4-1. This is the 14th World Cup for the 75-year-old English author, his debut having come in Sweden in 1958 when, he recalled, things were very much different and his match tickets were posted to his home two weeks before the beginning of the tournament that launched Pele to global fame.

Who said quarterback isn't a glamour position at Tustin High? Not those who saw David Miller throw a school-record four touchdowns passes Friday night, all in the first half, as the ninth-ranked Tillers dismantled Saddleback, 62-6, in a Golden West League game at Tustin High. "I'm trying to enter the 21st century and we're already almost to the 22nd," Tustin Coach Myron Miller joked. "I always thought passing the ball backwards was a pass, so I'm trying to learn how to throw it forward better."

Anything to avoid a coin flip. "I told the team if we don't win, we're not going to the playoffs," Tustin Coach Myron Miller said after Thursday's victory over Westminster. "We're not going to go if we couldn't play a tough football game." Miller's Tillers did just that, clinching at least a share of the Golden West League title with a 24-20 decision over Westminster. Tustin (6-4, 4-1 in league) will win the title outright if Servite loses to Santa Ana tonight.
