A popular art installation in Hong Kong's Victoria Harbor is no longer making waves. A 54-foot rubber duck, designed by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, started deflating Tuesday, and by Wednesday, the piece looked like a flattened yellow pancake bobbing on the water. “Rubber Duck” was installed May 2 and has since spawned serenades from city officials, choreographed dances by local groups and brisk sales of du ck-related goods. Officials were slow to report that the piece was deflated as part of a planned tuneup, leaving onlookers to wonder if the bird had been a victim of “fowl” play.

Two truck drivers have sued one of Southern California's largest trucking companies, alleging they were denied breaks, lunch hours and overtime because they were treated as independent contractors rather than employees of Harbor Express Inc. The lawsuit filed this week is one of several complaints lodged against trucking companies in recent years and is seeking class-action status. Lawyers for the plaintiffs said it could affect as many as 400 truck drivers who worked for the Wilmington-based company since May 2009.

The Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday morning will consider approving a controversial rail yard in the harbor that could improve the shipment of cargo but adversely affect nearby schools, parks and low-income communities. The proposal to build a staging center for trains hauling freight from the largest harbor complex in the nation has raised questions about environmental justice, particularly for the adjacent poor and working-class neighborhoods of west Long Beach. The planned Southern California International Gateway would be built by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway Co. in Wilmington next to the Terminal Island Freeway, also known as California 103, between Sepulveda Boulevard and California 1 and east of Alameda Street.
