Highlighting its 25 th anniversary, the Los Angeles-based Muslim Public Affairs Council on Friday issued what it called a Declaration Against Extremism, an effort to change public perception by distilling the values of mainstream Islam. “We have allowed the extremist voices to run rampant without effectively conveying our message,” said Salam Al-Marayati, president of the council, among the nation's most influential advocacy organizations for American Muslims. “What this declaration represents is a higher level of conveying the message of Islam, the true spirit of Islam, which is based on spreading mercy, justice and engaging others in a pluralistic society.” Among other principles, the council's statement calls for respecting all cultures, equal treatment of women, and upholding the idea that authority comes from God rather than from individual leaders.

A large tsunami hitting California would cause major flooding in Long Beach and parts of Orange County and force 750,000 people to evacuate coastal areas in just a few hours, according to an extensive simulation published Wednesday by the U.S. Geological Survey. The study, released two years after a tsunami killed thousands in Japan, identified several communities that are particularly vulnerable to flooding because of their low elevation and lack of protection from waves. They include Marina del Rey and the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach as well as the low-lying coastal areas extending from the ports to Newport Beach.

Do people ask about taking home a souvenir? Yes, they always ask if we're passing out any samples, and I tell them, "I'm sorry, that's only on the second Tuesday of every month." But we do have a complete selection of souvenirs for purchase, like sheets of uncut currency. And it's real, so if one took the scissors to it they could really use it. In Florida, we had a guy buy a sheet and then take it to a bar that night.
