In response to a letter written by Jai Somanath (Oct. 24), I would like to thank him for giving the Indians of the Americas a lot of credit. He did what the Europeans, including the Spanish, have never done--he spoke well of the accomplishments of Indian civilizations in the Americas. PANTALEON HUERTA Whittier

When a small Indian film stays in Los Angeles theaters for two months and shows no sign of leaving, it's not because critics love it (though they do), but because audiences are enthralled. "The Lunchbox" is that film, a warm and affectionate human comedy that is charming in a delicate and unforced way. Mixing a love of food with potent emotions - think "Babette's Feast," "Eat Drink Man Woman" and "Big Night" - "The Lunchbox" succeeds by leavening its simple story of mistaken identity with wonderful neo-realistic observations of ordinary middle class life in Mumbai and environs.

BEIJING - An Australian ship hunting for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has picked up two more transmissions similar to those of the jet's "black boxes," and the coordinator of the search said Wednesday the "pings" were helping to narrow the search area significantly. The vessel Ocean Shield, towing an acoustic detection device lent by the U.S. Navy, recorded pings of five and seven minutes' duration Tuesday afternoon and evening, said Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, who is coordinating the search efforts from Perth, Australia.

While the Boston Red Sox begin the search for a new manager in the wake of the firing of Bobby Valentine, one of their old managers, Terry Francona, is trying to find a manager's job of his own. Francona, who managed the Boston Red Sox to World Series titles in 2004 and 2007, arrived in Cleveland on Friday morning to begin a daylong interview to become the new manager of the Indians. Francona, who parted ways with the Red Sox before the 2012 season and was replaced by Valentine, was a TV analyst last season.

Re Ray Loynd's Oct. 9 review of the American Native Theatre Company's "Mystic Voices," at the Southwest Museum: Loynd implies the program stereotypes Indians. Actually, his review is a legacy of the stereotyping of Indians. I'll bet he expected a little more out of this show, something a little more mystical or noble , or perhaps hauntingly beautiful . Well, contrary to the image portrayed in movies, of which Loynd's image appears to be a refinement, an Indian generally likes to laugh as much as the next person.

BEIJING - With nearly a month of searching having turned up no definitive sign of missing Flight 370, Malaysia said Saturday it was overhauling the organization of its investigation and vowed to press on with efforts to find the jet. Meanwhile, China's state-run Xinhua news agency said a Chinese vessel in the Indian Ocean, the Haixun 01, had picked up a "pulse signal with a frequency of 37.5 kHz” - the same frequency as emitted by a plane's...

A tribe is preparing to invest more than $100 million in an expansion and upgrade of its Vegas-style casino in the Santa Ynez Valley, tripling the size of its hotel and opening the door to negotiations that could lead to a greater footprint in California's $7-billion Indian gambling industry. But word of the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians' expansion plan has ratcheted up tension and distrust between the Native Americans and some of their neighbors in Santa Barbara County. "It's huge - a huge expansion," said Robert F. Field, a local resident.

The economy may have dug itself out of the worst recession in a generation, but gamblers apparently are still reluctant to put their money at risk in U.S. Indian casinos. Gambling revenue at tribal casinos slowed in 2012, growing at a slower pace than non-tribal casinos for the first time in nearly 20 years, according to a report released Wednesday. Indian casino revenue grew 2% to $28.1 billion, half the pre-recession growth of 4% in 2007, according to Casino City's Indian Gaming Industry Report.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- Despite better weather conditions Friday and the use of some of the world's most advanced surveillance aircraft, an Australian-led search operation came up empty on its second day of scouring the south Indian Ocean for possible debris from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Several military aircraft, a commercial jet and two merchant ships combed a large area about 1,500 miles off the coast of Perth, Australia, where two objects...

The U.S. Navy dispatched its most technologically advanced search aircraft to an empty quarter of the Indian Ocean on Thursday to look for two large pieces of debris that may provide the first physical evidence in the investigation of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Experts were hopeful that the debris would not turn out to be another of the false leads and misinterpreted data that have dogged the investigation into why the Boeing 777 carrying 239...

A strange desert wind blew through Indian Wells and its Taj Mahal tennis facility in late afternoon Thursday, turning a women's quarterfinal into Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey. But it disappeared in time for the appearance of the evening's royalty, the Swiss king, Roger Federer. He was the feature of the day, the 7 p.m. match, the one where the ticket scalpers made their hay for the day. His name is legendary in tennis. Most legends build with time, after retirement, when history can be embellished a bit and reality can be retouched.

BEIJING - The search for elusive Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 shifted to waters around India based on suggestions the aircraft may have flown longer and farther than previously thought. After six days of fruitless searches in the Gulf of Thailand, near the original flight path from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, investigators are exploring theories that the plane flew as long as four hours after it lost contact with civilian radar at 1:30 a.m. Saturday. "An additional search area may be opened in the Indian Ocean, and we are consulting with international partners about the appropriate assets to deploy," White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters Thursday.

A sport that needs every bit of personality it can get held its breath for a few minutes Tuesday at Indian Wells. One of tennis' marquee names had departed from the BNP Paribas Open the day before, and out the door with upset victim Rafael Nadal went lots of star quality. FOR THE RECORD: Tennis: An article on the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells in the March 12 Sports section said that Novak Djokovic defeated Alejandro Gonzalez, 6-1, 6-3, 6-1, on Tuesday. The score was 6-1, 3-6, 6-1. It's not a ticket-selling thing.
