LAS VEGAS -- A dirt road just outside this desert city ends in chills: 40 caged lions roaring and ready for visitors. But the crowds aren't coming.  The Lion Habitat Ranch is a sanctuary for big cats, the legacy of the original MGM Grand lion that growls before each feature film. For more than a decade, the wild cats were the main attraction at the MGM Grand Casino's lion habitat, a 5,000-square-foot, glass-encased structure that was closed in 2011 as part of a major renovation.

It's one thing to manage a rental house when it's nearby. But it's another process entirely when the rental is in a distant vacation retreat. Unfortunately, many second-home buyers find that out the hard way. According to a survey by HomeAway, an online marketplace for vacation rentals, owners spend an average of 8.6 hours a week managing their properties. That's one full workday a week. And even then, it's doubtful that the typical owner can market his vacation pad, maintain it and do all the other things necessary to have a successful rental regime.

A sluggish economy appears to have shifted mothers' attitudes toward full-time work, as more women report wanting to work full time, a Pew Research Center poll released Thursday found. Among mothers with children under 18, the percentage that said they wish to work full time grew to 32% in 2012 -- up from 20% in 2007. The survey , which also examined how fathers balance family and work life, also found that the public remains divided on the impact of parent's work schedules on their children.

Only 27% of people older than age 15 globally are working more than 30 hours a week for an employer, according to a new report from Gallup. The percentage is highest in North America, where it's 41%.

In the Middle East and North Africa, it's 18%. That excludes those who are self-employed, working part time, unemployed or out of the workforce.

"Well, this is the worst-kept secret," said Barbara Walters, the daytime talk show's co-executive producer, as she introduced Shepherd to the cheering audience.

Coaching changes don't seem to be made very often at UCLA. David M. Atchison is only the school's third head coach in men's golf since it became a team sport in 1948. Nevertheless, when Atchison took over from Eddie Merrins in July, it was still considered a radical departure from tradition. Atchison, who was head coach at UC Santa Barbara for the past seven years, will be UCLA's first full-time men's golf coach.

A white Mercedes allegedly traveling 110 mph has flattened the Dodgers with the organization's most frightening, frustrating truth. The richest team in baseball cannot buy the safety, security or even the simple undivided attention of its most popular player. Yasiel Puig continues to careen toward calamity and there doesn't seem to be anything anybody can, or will, do about it. For the second time this year, Puig has been charged with reckless driving, after his arrest Saturday on an Everglades-choked stretch of South Florida highway known as Alligator Alley.

Hundreds of new full-time faculty would be hired to teach high-demand courses at California State University campuses under a budget plan to be considered by trustees Tuesday. Under the proposal, about $13 million would be used to hire more than 500 full-time faculty members, enabling campuses to increase the number of classes in highly sought subjects such as English, algebra, geography and biology. An additional $8 million would pay for 70 new academic advisors, a crucial component in the system's push to have students meet graduation requirements more quickly.

ST. LOUIS - Pitching aside, Boston's margin for error in the next three games of the World Series could be razor thin. Because the Red Sox are one of the few teams that use one player - David Ortiz - exclusively as the designated hitter against American League teams, they could feel the loss of that position more than any AL team in recent history. Ortiz will shift from DH to first base Saturday night for Game 3. Manager John Farrell had little choice but to sit Mike Napoli , who usually plays first base but is resigned to coming off the bench.

It's back-to-school time and parents' worries abound. Will the new teacher be any good? Will my child have friends in the new class? Will budget cuts limit the offerings in art, music or sports? There's one worry that's universal: Are my kids safe after school? The combination of shorter school days and the lack of after-school child care creates a mismatch for many full-time employed parents, especially mothers. Imagine that you have a child whose school day ends at 2 p.m. but you don't get home until 6 p.m. or later.

Today, Reinstein, 36, spends five mornings a week surfing and two days attending the American Institute of Massage Therapy in Costa Mesa.

LONDON -- Prince William, second in line to the throne and father of the world's most celebrated newborn, is giving up active duty in the British military for a life devoted to charity and public service, the royal family announced Thursday. The prince, 31, is completing a seven-and-a-half-year military tour, most of it spent as a rescue pilot based in Wales. Leaving the armed forces will allow William to become, in effect, a full-time royal representative dedicated to shaking hands, cutting ribbons, promoting worthy causes and generally preparing for the day he will be king.

Running the schools was a lot simpler before there were federal standards and accountability tests and a commitment to closing the achievement gap for disadvantaged students. Back then, the Los Angeles Unified school board oversaw the district in much the same way as, say, the Police Commission now oversees the Police Department. Education experts - the superintendent and administrative staff - directed the day-to-day operations of the district, while school board members put the stamp of approval on budgets, contracts, new hires and new curricula and got directly involved in particularly gnarly issues.
