Aries (March 21-April 19): A charming person always seems to get away with more. It's just life. As a witness, you'll be inspired to think about taking risks. Taurus (April 20-May 20): Ask for a small favor. You usually don't like to annoy anyone or become indebted, but this is not the case. By asking, you will endear yourself. Gemini (May 21-June 21): An expert will comment on what you have done. You might be surprised to hear what this person thinks, but you will take a positive meaning from it. Cancer (June 22-July 22)

If Wayne Gretzky hadn't been traded to the Kings in 1988, hockey in Southern California would still be the pursuit of a passionate few. The Ducks wouldn't exist if not for the enthusiasm generated by Gretzky's unprecedented scoring feats and knack for glamorizing a sometimes brutal sport. Kids here probably wouldn't have imagined giving up soccer or baseball for hockey. Those kids wouldn't now be hotly recruited by Canadian junior leagues, American colleges and elite development programs, and they wouldn't be reaching the NHL in growing numbers.

GDP Rises at 4% Rate, Weaker Than Expected The U.S. economy grew at a weaker-than-expected 4% annual clip in the fourth quarter, renewing concerns that business caution may delay full recovery and a snapback of hiring. Growth of the gross domestic product, a measure of all goods and services produced in the U.S., was respectable by historical standards.

A feline-focused art show featuring the works of more than 50 artists -- including Gary Baseman, Shepard Fairey and Tracey Emin -- is scheduled to curl up in a warm patch of Los Angeles sunlight early next year. Cat Art Show Los Angeles, which organizers are billing as "the largest exhibition of cat-inspired artwork for sale ever exhibited" (we don't even know how you'd verify something like that, frankly) is set to chase its own tail around the 101/Exhibit gallery on Santa Monica Boulevard from Jan.

Just picture it. Palm trees sway and dusk darkens the San Gabriel Mountains as officials prepare to drop the puck for the first outdoor NHL game in California. The Kings and Ducks line up for the historic moment while fans at Dodger Stadium and a national TV audience admire the gorgeous backdrop and marvel at the technology that allows a hockey rink to be plunked down across the infield. Fans in shorts and tank tops roar their approval. It's a triumph for the league and Commissioner Gary Bettman, who has ditched his corporate pinstriped suit for a colorful Hawaiian shirt and flip-flops to fit the relaxed atmosphere.

One of the liveliest aspects of the annual gathering in Anaheim of musical equipment and accessories makers and dealers known as the NAMM Convention is Deke Dickerson's Guitar Geek Festival, which takes place Friday and Saturday. It's the 10 th year for the event, and the final one, Dickerson says, at least in its current incarnation. He's lost money on it every year, but has continued to stage it as a labor of love, and it's clear in talking with Dickerson that that attitude hasn't flagged regardless of the financial picture.

Kiefer Sutherland runs through a packed Grand Central Station, dodging bystanders and scanning the crowd for suspicious activity. The minutes fly by — seen in frequent close-ups of ticking clocks — drawing closer to a potentially explosive moment. Sutherland confronts a guy on a public phone, spins him around and starts punching. Wait, is Jack Bauer back on TV? He's not, but Sutherland is returning to the Fox network. Only his new drama, "Touch," owes more to feature films like "Crash" and "Short Cuts" than to his previous award-winning espionage series, "24. " He just happens, in the first episode of "Touch," to be racing against time to unravel a mystery, an unintentional bone for "24" fans since it was written before Sutherland signed on. The new drama, which will have a sneak preview Jan. 25 after "American Idol," centers on Sutherland's character, Martin Bohm, a former journalist and single dad to a special-needs 11-year-old boy. The son, Jake, who's remote, combative and uncommunicative, may be autistic, but he exhibits savant-like qualities with gadgets and numbers.
