Donald A. Glaser Nobel Prize-winning physicist Donald A. Glaser, 86, a Nobel Prize-winning UC Berkeley physicist who invented a device called the bubble chamber, which allowed researchers to track the paths of high-energy atomic particles after collisions and which played a role in the discovery of new atomic particles, died in his sleep Thursday at his Berkeley home, the university announced. The specific cause was not given. Glaser, a longtime UC Berkeley professor of physics, as well as of molecular and cell biology, won the 1960 Nobel Prize in physics for the bubble chamber, which allowed scientists to track the movements of electrons, protons and other particles.

"Family Ties" star-turned-rock singer Tina Yothers is on the lam, according to a Beverly Hills judge. Municipal Court Judge Richard A. Stone on Wednesday issued a $20,000 warrant for Yothers' arrest when she failed to appear in small claims court for a hearing about the debts she allegedly owes her public relations company. Luck Media & Marketing president Steve Levesque claims Yothers owes his company more than $7,000 for two months of publicity for Yothers' rock band.

April is national poetry month. If this comes as news to you, don't feel bad. This annual occasion to renew and deepen the American love of verse is too often drowned out by the ballyhoo around, say, National VD Awareness Month. Indeed, statistically, more people are likely to contract syphilis in April than read a book of poetry. If you're asking, I'll take poetry.

IN a 2005 commercial, Hootie & the Blowfish singer Darius Rucker donned a glittering rhinestone suit and a Stetson to promote Burger King's latest sandwich. He wasn't a real cowboy then -- he was just playing one on TV. Two years later, however, he's singing a different tune: The multiplatinum-selling '90s pop singer is making his first country record. "This is a career move for me," says Rucker, who says the group will continue. "I'm not just making a Hootie record with mandolins and fiddles."
