Few rites of passage are more fraught with collective angst than the kids leaving home. Parents stare at empty bedrooms and brood over noiseless dinners. Young people discover that freedom brings unwanted responsibilities and challenges they may not be ready to handle. Relationships change. No blueprint sets forth how to break away or even when, since some children fly the nest at 18, some bolt in their 20s, and some never summon the gumption — or these days have the money or job — to go at all. "Nobody is correctly equipped to manage what's happening," noted Los Angeles-based author and psychotherapist Stacy Kaiser.

OAKLAND - Doc Rivers sounded as if he has been forced to contemplate his future as coach of the Clippers. With so many NBA players around the league saying they wouldn't play for controversial Clippers owner Donald Sterling in the wake of racist comments he allegedly made, Rivers was asked if he needed to hear something from someone within the organization in order for him to continue working for Sterling. "Don't know yet," Rivers responded. "I'm just going to leave it at that.

Arnold Nudell has resigned as president of Infinity Systems, a stereo loudspeaker producer in Chatsworth, which he co-founded 21 years ago with Cary Christie, the company announced Monday. Christie, 44, who had been executive vice president, was named to succeed Nudell, 52. Infinity, which is one of the biggest loudspeaker manufacturers in the nation, is owned by Harman International Industries, an audio products concern based in Washington. Christie said Nudell's reasons for leaving "are personal and we're leaving them that way."

OAKLAND - The Clippers seemed weighed down Sunday afternoon in Game 4 by all the controversy that has engulfed them. And even though it was not of their own making, but that of owner Donald Sterling, the Clippers were in the storm and tried to stay afloat. But they could not avoid their albatross and a hot Golden State team, dropping a 118-97 decision to the Warriors at Oracle Arena. BOX SCORE: Golden State Warriors 118, Clippers 97 Instead of talking about the best-of-seven first-round series being tied at 2-2 or about regaining home-court advantage with their Game 3 win, the Clippers had to talk about Sterling's alleged racist comments about African Americans.

My wife and I just returned from a vacation to the Fiji Islands, Australia, New Zealand and Tahiti. We had to pay a tax before leaving their countries: $5 per person before leaving Fiji, $20 per person before leaving Australia and $2 per person before leaving New Zealand. If that is their law there was nothing we could do about it. However, I feel that our country is missing the boat. I don't know how many visitors come to the United States yearly but I wouldn't be far from wrong if I guessed that millions of visitors come to this country every year.

I'm writing in response to the letter "Mommy Trackers Should Cover Trail" (Ariela Erez, June 26). As a successful female working in a male-dominated engineering field for 11 years, I empathize with the author. However, I disagree that women leaving their jobs to become full- time mothers should "cover their trail" by giving some other reason for leaving. This circumvents and reinforces the real problem. Employers regularly invest in training and development for men, knowing full well that the man can leave at any time for another job, city or career.

That powerful Dodgers offense still trying to find its stride took a possible step in the very wrong direction Saturday night when shortstop Hanley Ramirez left the game against Colorado after three innings with a right thumb injury. Nothing immediately seemed unusual when Ramirez grounded out in the bottom of the third. But when he returned to the dugout he was shaking his right hand and quickly examined by trainer Stan Conte. Ramirez tried gripping a bat and a ball while on the bench and appeared to try to go back into the game to start the fourth, but was held back by Conte.

The morning awaited royalty. It was 8 a.m., and the Saturday sun had just begun to dry the puddles from Friday's rain and add some sparkle to the infield lakes at Los Alamitos Race Course. Along the grandstand fence, they gathered, perhaps as many as 200 people. Many had cameras. More had goose bumps. California Chrome would be making an appearance soon, his last workout before flying off Monday to thoroughbred racing fame and fortune. At least that is the hope of so many in the Southern California racing community.

San Diego Opera has placed its longtime general and artistic director Ian Campbell on paid leave after a three-decade tenure that has been rocked in recent weeks by public and internal criticism over his role in the decision to close the company. The opera said in a news release Friday that Campbell and his ex-wife, Ann Spira-Campbell, who is a high-ranking administrator in the company, have both been placed on leave. A company spokesman said in an interview that the Campbells will no longer be involved in the day-to-day operations of the organization, but they are still being paid and are technically still part of the company.

My column Tuesday on the courtroom tears of a gang member sentenced to 40 years in prison for a campus shooting resonated with readers - but not in the way I imagined it would. I considered the courtroom scene a cautionary message to other young men who glorify gangs and are enamored of guns: You could spend the rest of your life in prison over a stupid vendetta and a single violent act. But readers focused not just on the threat posed by hotheads with guns, but on the perceived injustice of such a long sentence for a young man who didn't kill anyone.

When a documentary interviewee says, "My dad has been collecting penises as long as I remember," you know you've entered some unusual film territory. Such is the case of "The Final Member," which revolves around the Icelandic Phallological Museum, an exhibit hall devoted to preserved male genitalia from a variety of mammalian species except one: human. And it's the quest for that holy grail of specimens that drives much - frankly too much - of co-directors Jonah Bekhor and Zach Math's decidedly quirky, at times unappetizing film.

Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn has been on leave from San Diego State, where he coaches the school's baseball team, for much of the season because of ongoing cancer treatments, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported Tuesday. The paper talked to Gwynn by phone. “I have no comment, other than to say I'm doing good," said Gwynn , 53. "That's all I can say. But nobody believes me because there hasn't been any information out there. But, trust me, I'm doing good.” The school released a statement Tuesday saying that "Tony Gwynn is currently on a leave of absence from the Aztec baseball program while dealing with health issues.

As a longtime subscriber to the Orange County Performing Arts Center's Broadway series, I think your attention to the people leaving the production of "Rent" at intermission was a bit misleading (" 'Worth the Wait' vs. 'Just Weight,' "Aug. 10). You can't discuss the number of people leaving this particular show without noting the number who leave other more "mainstream" shows at intermission. Where were you when Hayley Mills destroyed "The King and I"? It looked like the floodgates had been opened.

After Russia's recent actions in Ukraine, it's no surprise that other countries bordering Russia are wondering where they stand on Vladimir Putin's shopping list. That they are on the list is a given. Article 61 of Russia's Constitution promises that "the Russian Federation shall guarantee its citizens defense and patronage beyond its boundaries. " In other words, Russia shall protect any Russian citizen who is mistreated while outside Russia. On its face, Article 61 may seem reasonable.
