Before there was Minimalism there was Post-Minimalism. That might seem hardly feasible if you put your trust in time being an irreversible process. Theoretical physics, however, allows for a more open future in which the concepts of past and present become malleable. With the advent of Minimalism in music 50 years ago, young composers cleaned the slate with basic chords, simple melodic formulas, a beat and, most of all, a salute to repetition. All that was off-limits in the Modernist musical revolution set off a half-century earlier.

She watched "The Silence of the Lambs" as a girl and so related to Jodie Foster's character that she wanted to become an FBI agent and go after psychopaths. Instead, Ally Jacobs became a police officer at UC Berkeley, handling mostly garden-variety cases until one day in August when she helped crack the case that ended the 18-year kidnapping nightmare of Jaycee Lee Dugard. On Monday, the 1994 Santa Margarita Catholic High School graduate returned for alumni career day and told students that her brush with fame stemmed from trusting that voice in her head that told her that something wasn't right about the man later arrested and charged with Dugard's kidnap and rape.

Sleeping pills: A March 30 article on insomnia incorrectly stated that Gregg D. Jacobs, an insomnia specialist at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in Worcester, has a company that markets a drug-free insomnia treatment program. Although Jacobs has a website on which a treatment program is sold, he doesn't own a company, nor does he market or advertise the program. The article also shouldn't have referred to Jacobs as "Dr." He has a PhD, not a medical degree.

One had to relive eighth grade. Another grew a beard so long and unruly it became more famous than its wearer. Yet another got to meet Richard Simmons on a cruise ship and was ranted at by a whole raft of motivational speakers. They're not professional pranksters, exactly, but the authors of what might be called gimmick books -- memoirs with premises so high-concept they could come from Hollywood pitch meetings: This year, I will take all of my instruction from self-help gurus.

WASHINGTON -- Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew had successful outpatient surgery on Tuesday but remained at a New York area hospital overnight because of a low-grade fever, a Treasury Department spokeswoman said. Lew, 58, underwent the procedure to treat a benign enlarged prostate. The plan was for him to recuperate at his New York home for the rest of this week before returning to his normal schedule. The surgery at an unnamed hospital went well, and Lew was resting comfortably after the procedure, Treasury spokeswoman Natalie Wyeth Earnest said Tuesday afternoon.

Jacob Hashimoto's installation at the Museum of Contemporary Art Pacific Design Center is a lot like the weather: all around us and bigger than everyone. Made up of thousands of small paper-and-wood sculptures that resemble miniature kites, Hashimoto's sprawling piece also puts visitors in mind of massive gatherings, whether they're made up of people crowded into stadiums or represented by numbers too big to wrap your head around - like the national debt or the amount of Twitter followers celebrities have.

SOCHI, Russia -- You can practically imagine Travis Pastrana wishing that U.S. snowboarders Alex Deibold and Trevor Jacob had their wild Olympic finish on his show. Who knows? Maybe they can re-create it on a future episode of “Nitro Circus.” It was fascinating theater on a rain-soaked muddle of a course, a sliding photo finish between Deibold and Jacob in the semifinals of men's snowboard cross on Tuesday morning. Mere inches separated the teammates fighting for the last spot in the final.

One of the snowboarders waiting out the delay is 20-year-old Californian Trevor Jacob, who is from Malibu and Mammoth and now lives in Paso Robles.

A tree trimmer dangled for half an hour from a frond of a tall palm tree Saturday before he was rescued by firefighters, officials said. Los Angeles County Fire Inspector Darryl Jacobs said the fronds have a tendency to slip between a trimmer's body and the belt used for support, leaving the worker unable to get free. "It's not unusual at all," he said. Jacobs said the Fire Department received a call about 10:30 a.m. reporting the man stuck in a tree near 200 W. Rosecrest Ave. It took rescuers 40 minutes to bring him down.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Just like that, Marc by Marc Jacobs is cool again. For their debut season, Brit "It" girl designers Luella Bartley and Katie Hillier showed a brash, Riot Grrrl/punk/ninja-themed collection that put Jacobs' flailing secondary line back on the map. In recent years, Marc by Marc had devolved into a watered-down, fashion-irrelevant department store brand.

SOCHI, Russia -- He stunned people last week at the Olympics when he talked about having more concussions than his age, seeming blissfully unconcerned. There was the great leap over a moving train, while on a snowboard several years ago, much to the great displeasure of folks at Union Pacific. Recently, he ignited the Internet with a stunt at Travis Pastrana's compound in Maryland, blasting off a massive ramp, into the sky, seemingly headed for trouble and "kicked off a tree" before landing safely.
