The dark and desperate days are over now for Kevin Greene--at least the dark and desperate Sundays when he had to line up against 300-pound monsters every down and sacrifice life, limb and sack total for the defensive system. Coach Chuck Knox has decided to move Greene back to left outside linebacker, away from the end spot he held last year, back to the position from which he averaged more than 15 sacks from 1988-90. Last year, as the right-side defensive end, he got three.

Google is celebrating St. Patrick's Day with a stained-glass doodle in green. On Sunday, Americans celebrated Irish ancestry across the nation, with traditional parades in London, Boston, Montreal, New York and other cities.  West Boylston, Mass., even held what it billed as the world's shortest St. Patrick's Day parade -- participants marched 75 feet from Finder's pub to Keeper's pub. Many of them then likely lifted a pint to the...

Based on his own version of the facts, lawyer R. Browne Greene failed to deal ethically with his clients in turning down a $2-million settlement offer in a case he ultimately lost, an expert witness testified Tuesday. Costa Mesa lawyer Garvin F. Shallenberger, a former president of the State Bar of California, appeared to provide the toughest testimony yet against Greene since jurors began hearing the case on March 11.

Jenny Gonzalez checked for signs of epipodium, tentacles resembling swaying wet noodles, on the green abalones in her South Gate classroom the other day. "That's what I was looking for," Jenny, 13, said of a small, light-colored abalone. "When you see the epipodium, that means they're happy. " That's one thing students at South Gate Middle School are learning about green abalones. The students have cared for three of the snail-like marine creatures since January. Although the activity has been in place at the school for three years, this is the first time teacher Violeta Llamas' "Explorations in Science" students participated.

The superpatriot militias now have Timothy McVeigh to add to Waco and Ruby Ridge as evidence of the evils of our government as opposed to the one they want. WILLIAM S. GREENE Granada Hills

I am aghast at the blatant exploitation of graffiti employed by Wells, Rich, Greene in its campaign for Herradura Tequila ("Graffiti Fills the Bill for Herradura Tequila," Sept. 5). The people at WRG obviously don't realize the problems faced by local residents in fighting the blight of graffiti, otherwise they wouldn't be pandering to the interests of their target audience. I hope the local ad industry will eschew this repugnant and trite device. The real bad boys here are Wells, Rich, Greene.

"Hunting Humans?" is archaic in thought and old in data. You should have stressed the work of the Mountain Lion Foundation and others in educating us how to live with our fellow creatures. Twenty verified attacks on humans since colonial times shows how little we have to fear from our last great predator. Kenyon B. De Greene Woodland Hills

Greene doesn't want us to cut funding for civil defense. She says, "We cannot allow politics to prevail over reason." I think that if we really could put reason first we'd cut all civil defense funds. She's talking about protecting Americans against the combined effects of 50,000 nuclear warheads. The next big war will be the explosive equivalent of 10,000 World War II's, all in an afternoon. I agree, 119 million civil defense dollars won't protect us from that. But will 119 billion?

The world is full of Green Dragon pubs, inns, taverns, grills and restaurants - in part because of American history, in part because of J.R.R. Tolkien's imagination, in part because the name just sounds cool. And now there's another one. The Green Dragon Tavern & Museum opened Feb. 12  in Carlsbad, about five miles south of Camp Pendleton. It pays homage to this country's revolutionary roots - not a bad angle for a watering hole neighbored by many thousands of Marines. It is housed in a two-story red brick building, keeps about 20 beers on tap and seats about 250 diners and drinkers with dinner entrees priced $15-$50.

WASHINGTON - The Obama administration handed backers of medical marijuana a significant victory Friday, opening the way for a University of Arizona researcher to examine whether pot can help veterans cope with post-traumatic stress, a move that could lead to broader studies into potential benefits of the drug. For years, scientists who have wanted to study how marijuana might be used to treat illness say they have been stymied by resistance from federal drug officials. The Arizona study had long ago been sanctioned by the Food and Drug Administration, but under federal rules, such experiments can use marijuana only from a single, government-run farm in Mississippi.

"Mozart in the Jungle" -- a satirical look at the classical-music world that stars Gael Garcia Bernal as a thinly veiled parody of conductor Gustavo Dudamel -- has been picked up by Amazon, the online retailer announced this week. The pilot episode of the racy comedy was released online earlier this year. In addition to "Mozart," Amazon Studios has picked up "The After," from "X-Files" veteran Chris Carter; "Transparent," a domestic comedy; and "Bosch," based on the novels by Michael Connelly.

Think of a robot. Chances are you imagined one with legs like C-3PO of "Star Wars" fame or something with wheels like NASA's Mars rover Curiosity . Neither of these rigid body types are particularly flexible and certainly can't move through water well. But what about a robot with a tail? Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have designed a soft robot based on a fish, which can bend its body and quickly flee the way that real fish do to escape predators. Typical robots are rigid with exposed mechanisms and unnatural movement, but the fish described in the first issue of the new journal Soft Robotics is covered in a soft silicone skin.

SACRAMENTO - Eager to attack more hazardous household products, state officials went public Thursday with a first list of consumer products that might need to be reformulated or pulled from retailers' shelves altogether. As part of its unfolding "green chemistry" program, the state Department of Toxic Substances Control identified three groups of goods as priority candidates for action. The first ones contain hazardous compounds with unfamiliar chemical names that could pose dangers to people or the environment, officials said.

For all the chiseled abs and testosterone-fueled bloodletting of the new sword-and-sandals movie "300: Rise of an Empire," the person making the strongest impression with critics and audiences is French actress Eva Green, who plays the vengeful naval commander Artemisia. Here are five things to know about Green. Where she comes from: Green, 33, was born in Paris to an actress, Marlene Jobert, and a dentist, Walter Green. Her twin sister, Joy, was born minutes later. Green took an interest in acting as a teenager, graduated from the American University of Paris, and went on to study drama in Paris and London.

Norma Basgall, in her Oct. 14 letter, exactly expressed my feelings regarding United Airlines and its $100 fee for changing ticket dates. I had a similar experience with United on Oct. 9. I had canceled my reservation for Oct. 11, and my travel agent suggested that I plead my case to them. My daughter had been diagnosed as possibly having spinal cancer. I wanted to stay home for her. The United representatives were rude and disinterested. They also charged me a $100 change fee. WENDY S. GREENE Tustin

Inside Llewyn Davis Sony, $30.99; Blu-ray, $35.99 Available on VOD beginning Tuesday Joel and Ethan Coen use the pre-Bob Dylan Greenwich Village folk scene as a jumping-off point for a black comedy about obsolescence, but unlike earlier, similar Coen brothers films (such as "Barton Fink"), "Inside Llewyn Davis" doesn't just beat the crap out of a self-absorbed artiste for two hours. As Llewyn, Oscar Isaac is a sympathetic creep who can't catch a break in a world where his more fresh-scrubbed and personable colleagues are becoming stars.
