It was the dream matchup that soccer fans had been hoping for: The best team in the world against the best in history. And Sunday's Confederations Cup final in Rio de Janeiro's massive Maracana Stadium didn't disappoint, with Brazil routing Spain, 3-0. Goals by Fred two minutes into the first half and two minutes into the second half, sandwiched around a score by Neymar in the 44th minute, gave Brazil its third consecutive title in the World Cup...

Going into the final round of the 20th Toshiba Classic, Fred Couples didn't think he could win the tournament because Bernhard Langer had been so hot. But on Sunday at Newport Beach Country Club, Couples grabbed momentum on his back nine to give himself an opportunity. Still a victory wasn't close to being secured because at one point nine golfers had held or shared the lead. Six were tied for the lead with three holes remaining. But Couples shot a five-under-par 66 in his final round and finished at 15-under 198 to become the second player in Toshiba Classic history to win the event twice, as he won it in 2010.

To many, the fantastic weather slated for Newport Beach this weekend isn't much of a surprise. The same could be said of the Toshiba Classic's first-round leader. That would be Bernhard Langer. The two-time Masters champion, who won the Toshiba in 2008, is the hottest golfer on the Champions Tour. He shot an eight-under-par 63 Friday at Newport Beach Country Club and takes a two-shot lead into Saturday's second round. It was Langer's 12th consecutive sub-par round and 19th in his last 20 rounds going back to October.

On the fringe of Compton's manufacturing zone lies a row of boarded-up single-family homes that shelter not humans, but a billion-bug-and-worm breeding enterprise. It's nicknamed "Worm City," and Fred Rhyme is its mayor. FOR THE RECORD: Mealworms: An article in the Dec. 13 California section about a Compton worm farm incorrectly attributed a quote to Rosa Gomez. It was Daniel Cervantes, a resident near the farm, who was washing his car when he said, "They've been here all these years before I moved here in 2004."

Maybe it's finally time for Peter and Bobby Farrelly, the filmmaking sibs who brought us the very salty treat of "There's Something About Mary," to give up on the raunch and give into the romance. After scoring big in 1998 with "Mary" ? the zipper issue, the "hair gel" mix-up, the roving troubadours ? their raw inventive edge has never been quite as sharp. "Hall Pass," starring Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis, continues that creative slide into everyday crude (because watching a guy poop in a sand trap is neither clever nor funny)

"Laurence Anyways" is, at heart, an intimate story of love and transformation of the physical and emotional kind. That its now-24-year-old writer-director, Xavier Dolan, a looming sensation in his native Canada, chose to explore this unique tale in such epic, operatic fashion works for and against the film - and the filmmaker. At nearly three hours, it's by turns an extraordinary and exhausting work. The story tracks the rocky, codependent relationship between Laurence (Melvil Poupaud)

A rundown of jazz and jazz-adjacent shows coming to L.A. in the coming days. Anthony Wilson's Seasons Quartet at the Broad Stage Consider an all-guitar jazz quartet and it's easy to conjure images of fingers burning up and down fretboards with the kind of mind-scrambling fireworks that've made heroes out of Pat Metheny and John McLaughlin. Anthony Wilson offers something more understated with his Seasons quartet. Assembled after being commissioned by guitar maker John Monteleone (whose wares will be featured here)

Charles Vest President of MIT oversaw expansion Charles Vest, 72, who as president of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology oversaw a vast expansion of the institution and inaugurated an unprecedented program of free online education, died Thursday at home in the Washington, D.C., area, according to the university. The cause was pancreatic cancer. Vest was president of MIT from 1990 to 2004, and served on several high-level panels outside the university, including a State Department group that concluded in a 2005 report that the U.S. intelligence community was "dead wrong" in almost all its pre-Iraq war judgments about that country's supposed weapons of mass destruction.

After nibbling on a sandwich from the lunch box of one of his rescuers, Fred was safely returned to the park.

Anyone familiar with the sound of West Coast jazz from the 1950s knows the sound of Los Angeles-born drummer Chico Hamilton. A musician who often emphasized a subtle musical grace in his playing over snare-rattling runs, Hamilton helped forge the California sound dubbed "cool jazz" in the 1950s and launched the careers of a wealth of jazz artists both as a bandleader and an educator. Hamilton, 92, died at his New York City home Tuesday morning. The cause has not been determined, but Hamilton was diagnosed with emphysema late in life, according to his nephew Raoul Hamilton, who confirmed his death.
