Hollywood's 107-year-old industry trade publication Variety and 6-year-old online competitor Deadline, headed by editor Nikki Finke, may soon be housed under the same corporate roof. Penske Media Corp., the owner of Deadline and six other online properties, is now the leading bidder for Variety, partnered with private equity fund Shamrock Capital Advisors, according to two knowledgeable people not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. The company, led by Jay Penske, the 33-year-old son of automobile magnate Roger Penske, could close a deal to purchase the paper in the next three weeks for around $30 million, one of the people added.

For more than a half century, few in this town have loved and lived the Lakers like Joe Smith. The former record mogul has four season seats on the baseline next to the Lakers bench. He has held those seats since the team arrived in Los Angeles. He has become as much of a fixture under the basket as the ballboys and Laker girls. No single ticket holder has endured longer, and certainly no single fan has invested more. For 54 years, Joe Smith has loved the Lakers graciously, gratefully and unconditionally.

WASHINGTON - The government's troubled health insurance website will be running smoothly for the “vast majority” of users by the end of November, administration officials said Friday, for the first time setting a public deadline for fixing the problematic centerpiece of President Obama's healthcare law. “Healthcare.gov is fixable,” Jeffrey Zients, an economic advisor brought in to manage the repair project, told reporters on Friday....

Five former Bell council members - all convicted but facing retrial on additional corruption-related charges - must decide Thursday whether to take a plea bargain that could put them behind bars for up to four years. The Los Angeles district attorney's office offered the deal on the condition that George Cole, Oscar Hernandez, Teresa Jacobo, Victor Bello and George Mirabal each agree to it. If not all of them sign off on the deal, the offer would be taken off the table and the former city leaders would head to a second trial with a judge who has indicated repeatedly that she has grown weary of the 2010 Bell salary scandal.

The Hollywood trade paper Variety has been acquired by Penske Media Corp. and its financial backer, hedge fund Third Point, for about $25 million, in a power shift for the world of show business and a transformation of the industry's most famous news brand. Santa Monica-based Penske already owns Deadline.com, the website that has in just six years become a dominant news source for show business professionals and, together with online competitor Wrap and a resurgent Hollywood Reporter, stolen much of the thunder that belonged to Variety for its 107-year history.

University of California officials have extended the application period for undergraduate admissions after a computer slowdown kept some students from filing their online applications in time for Monday night's deadline. The new deadline is 11:59 p.m. Tuesday. Susan Wilbur, UC's director of undergraduate admissions, said her office is investigating the cause of the computerized malfunction that at least temporarily blocked some panicked last-minute filers from submitting applications on Sunday and Monday nights.

WASHINGTON -- Obama administration officials said that even after Tuesday's extended deadline, they will try to arrange coverage starting Jan. 1 for people who have had trouble getting through the government's sometimes-balky enrollment website. “Our highest priority is making sure that everyone who wants to enroll to have health care coverage by Jan. 1 is able to do so, particularly since consumers had a hard time accessing HealthCare.gov in October and November,” administration spokesperson Julie Bataille said in a statement.

A top Democrat in the Senate said Monday that Congress should pass a debt-ceiling increase no later than mid-July -- weeks before a Treasury Department deadline -- to avoid the expected turmoil in the financial markets if partisan infighting prolongs the debate. "We ought to have plenty of breathing room -- this should not be an hour, a day or even a week [before the deadline]," Sen. Charles E. Schumer of New York, the No. 3 Democrat in the Senate, said during a call with reporters.

Some civil rights attorneys are questioning the decision by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck to set a deadline for removing Occupy L.A. protesters encamped on the City Hall grounds. The mayor and chief announced that the deadline would be 12:01 a.m. Monday, though many protesters are vowing to stay. While civil rights activists have praised the LAPD for showing restraint with protesters, they fear that setting a deadline could cause problems.

SACRAMENTO -- A panel of federal judges has given Gov. Jerry Brown an additional 28 days to come up with long-term solutions to the state's prison crowding problems. In an order issued Monday, the judges moved the deadline for California to remove about 9,600 inmates from state lockups to Feb. 24, adding almost a month to their last deadline of Jan. 27. It previously was Dec. 31. They also ordered the state to continue negotiating for solutions with lawyers representing California's 134,000 prisoners.

Even with 1.2 million people enrolled by Monday's deadline, California's health exchange isn't done adding to the Obamacare rolls - and it won't be for quite some time. In the months to come, it's estimated that several hundred thousand more Californians could qualify for a special enrollment period as college students graduate, families move and workers change jobs. But health insurers say the state's current rules for late sign-ups rely too much on the honor system and invite abuse by people waiting until they get sick.

Washington state accused the federal government Monday of missing crucial legal deadlines to clean up 56 million gallons of highly radioactive waste at the former Hanford nuclear weapons site in southeastern Washington, demanding a new set of schedules by April 15. Gov. Jay Inslee and state Atty. Gen. Bob Ferguson sent a letter to Energy Secretary Ernest J. Moniz demanding that eight new double-shelled storage tanks be built to hold waste that is in leaky underground tanks with single steel walls.

Strong consumer interest in Obamacare coverage ahead of Monday's enrollment deadline was leading to long waits and website trouble for some Californians. The Covered California exchange said sign-ups have been building throughout the week with about 80,000 people picking a health plan Monday through Thursday. An additional 150,000 households created an online account and started the shopping process in the last three days, officials said. That heavy volume was creating havoc, confusion and delays for many consumers, enrollment counselors and insurance agents trying to use the exchange's website.

WASHINGTON - With the Monday deadline still a few days away, the White House announced Thursday that more than 6 million people have signed up for health insurance through online marketplaces created by the Affordable Care Act. That number, though shy of the 7 million sign-ups the administration had once hoped for, marks a significant milestone because 6 million was the projection for this year's enrollment made last month by the nonpartisan Congressional...

Latinos aren't the only sore spot for Covered California heading into Monday's enrollment deadline for Obamacare coverage. Very few African Americans have signed up statewide, and there's not much time to address the lackluster turnout. Wednesday, state officials reiterated that Monday remains the deadline for open enrollment. But the state will give Californians until April 15 to finish their application if they start it before midnight Monday. Thus far, fewer than 3% of health plan enrollees identify themselves as African American, and that number hasn't budged in weeks.

WASHINGTON - As Monday's deadline approaches to sign up for insurance under President Obama's health law, more than 1 million people a day are visiting HealthCare.gov, Obama administration officials said Wednesday. The site - the main portal for insurance marketplaces in 36 states - drew 1.2 million visitors Tuesday and 1.1 million visitors Monday, according to the administration. Over the same period, call centers received more than 500,000 calls. California's state-run health insurance exchange reported a similar surge in interest, with nearly 40,000 people picking a health plan Monday and Tuesday.

WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration will push back by six weeks the deadline for enrolling for health insurance without facing a penalty, a change officials say is intended to clarify a series of mismatched deadlines outlined in the law and not a response to problems with its insurance website. Consumers will have until March 31 to sign up for insurance without paying a tax penalty in 2014, the White House announced late Wednesday. That date was already the end of open enrollment, but under the individual mandate rules it was not clear whether consumers who waited that long to enroll would still face penalties.

A second day of pressure from across the GOP hierarchy apparently did little to sway Akin, who vowed to “rush into the gunfire” in a race that nonpartisan analysts said would be ...

ORLANDO, Fla. - Mark Davis, owner of the Oakland Raiders, has acknowledged the possibility of moving the franchise back to Los Angeles if Oakland can't get its act together on a new stadium. That's interesting. But if words translated into actions, the L.A. market would have landed an NFL team or two 15 years ago. More than half of the league's 32 teams have been linked to L.A. at one point or another, as in, Team 'X' could potentially move if it can't get a stadium deal where it is. At the league's annual meetings Monday, Davis said his patience is wearing thin over the Coliseum City project, the proposed redevelopment of the 850 acres in and around the Oakland Coliseum to create new homes for the Raiders, Athletics and Golden State Warriors.

If you don't  have health insurance and want it, now is the time to act. The deadline to sign up for coverage under Obamacare is fast approaching. Experts have many suggestions.   Some recommendations are as easy as calling the state insurance exchange, insurers, insurance brokers or one of many enrollment counselors hired to help you. But have patience. It could involve a long wait. Here are things to consider. Know the deadline.  You have until March 31 to buy a private health plan that will take effect by May 1. If you miss the deadline, you won't be eligible to buy insurance again until open enrollment returns in November, and that coverage won't take effect until 2015.
