"The Streak," as Ozma and her father, Jim Brozina, called it, began when Ozma was in fourth grade and didn't stop until the day she moved into her college dormitory when she was 18 years old. This significant, deeply odd, sometimes-embarrassing, often-inspiring accomplishment is chronicled by 23-year-old Ozma in a new memoir, "The Reading Promise: My Father and the Books We...

Police are searching for a carjacker who ordered a man and his 7-year-old daughter into their truck at gunpoint outside a library in Pacoima on Monday, and then forced them to withdraw cash from an ATM before ditching them at a freeway interchange. The incident unfolded at about 3 p.m. when the man approached the father and daughter as they were walking into the library at Haddon Avenue and Van Nuys Boulevard, according to Los Angeles police Sgt. Charles Coleman. The carjacker pulled out a gun and ordered them to get back into their Toyota Tundra and drive to another city, where they were forced to withdraw money from an ATM, Coleman told KTLA-TV . The carjacker then dropped the man and his daughter off at the interchange between the 5 and 14 freeways.

Rene Auberjonois says he no longer feels so fatherly while watching his daughter, Tessa, follow in his distinguished footsteps. Instead, he feels like a professional colleague, free to analyze, critique and enjoy a fellow actor's performance without turning into "a nervous wreck." Auberjonois won a 1970 Tony Award for supporting actor opposite Katharine Hepburn in the musical "Coco." He's most widely recognized for playing Clayton Endicott III on "Benson" and Odo on "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine."

We all marveled at the hideous thing, trying not to gasp through our regulators. It was black, striped and about the size of a bass, fins fanning out in all directions. Scuba divers see a lot of weird-looking things but appreciate them all the same. But our dive masters told us that there were bounties on these lionfish, ugly creatures that destroy reef-cleaning fish populations. No one knows where they came from or how many threaten Curaçao's marine park. I had come to this small Caribbean island, 35 miles off Venezuela, in June with my father, Matt, a small-business owner.

For my daughter, Sophie, it was like finding the goose that laid the golden egg. "Today was a Fairytale," Taylor Swift was singing from the stage at Staples Center, and Sophie, age 11, was singing every word along with her, waving a colored light stick back and forth above her head. Her grin was electric, her attention sharply focused; she wasn't missing anything. For the last year or so, Sophie has been a Taylor Swift obsessive ("I am Taylor's No. 1 fan!" read the sign she brought to the concert with us)

For 20 years, Claire Denis has been among France's foremost filmmakers with her acute yet subtle observations of the ebbs and flows within relationships. Her perception and understanding seem to grow only richer over the years, and her newest film, "35 Shots of Rum," is surely one of her finest -- and thereby one of the best films of the year. With the greatest of ease and assurance, she catches us up in the lives of Lionel (Alex Descas), a long-widowed African immigrant, and his beautiful daughter, Josephine (Mati Diop)
