"Touchdown" Tony Martin is back. The Pro Bowl receiver, glaringly absent as San Diego stumbled through the first quarter of the season, caught touchdown passes of 36, 72 and 38 yards from Stan Humphries as the Chargers defeated Baltimore, 21-17, Sunday in a game that at times bordered on slapstick. "I feel real good, man," said Martin, who exploited one-on-one coverage for his big plays. "Not for the three touchdowns, just for the victory. It just feels good to win.

"The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice," the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. assured his followers. But was he right? The arc of American history, at least, has a different shape. During the 19th century, a high point for justice was reached after the Civil War, with Reconstruction Republicans guaranteeing equal protection and voting rights for blacks in the 14th and 15th amendments. But these brave words did not prevent a tragic retreat, from the Gilded Age beginning in the 1880s through the Roaring '20s.

Second-seeded Todd Martin, at times frustrated by gusting winds, came back from a 3-1 deficit in the final set to beat Mikael Pernfors, 6-4, 7-5, in the quarterfinals of the U.S. Men's Clay Court Championships Friday at Charlotte, N.C. Martin, ranked No. 44 and the highest-seeded player left in the U.S. Tennis Assn. national championship event, will face third-seeded Jaime Yzaga in today's semifinals. "I was really nervous about the wind so I moved my feet well," Martin said.

Lately, every week seems to bring a new "Game of Thrones" controversy, and true to form Sunday's episode, "Breaker of Chains," included a plot twist that has ignited a firestorm of debate online. (Those not yet caught up on their DVRs are advised to tread carefully. Here be spoilers.)  In the scene in question, Cersei is grieving over the dead body of her son, King Joffrey, when Jaime, her brother/former lover/Joffrey's father, brutally forces himself on her. "You're a hateful woman," he says, as she repeatedly begs him to stop.

New York Yankees Manager Billy Martin was fined $1,000 and suspended for three games Thursday by the American League for kicking and throwing dirt on umpire Dale Scott after being thrown out of a game. "There is no excuse sufficient enough to warrant dirt being kicked and thrown on an umpire," AL President Bobby Brown said. "I have warned Billy that this type of action must cease and that, if repeated, it could result in harsher penalties."

It is interesting to note that Ralph David Abernathy is vice-president of the board of directors of the American Freedom Coalition, one of the most ferociously right-wing, allegedly Moonie-backed groups that currently exists in the United States. Is his biography of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. truly a quest for truth, or is it one more attempt to discredit those men and women who fight for the civil liberties of the disenfranchised?

A high-stakes battle is underway in Washington over launching the U.S. government's most sophisticated national security satellites. Space entrepreneur Elon Musk is pitted against the nation's two largest weapons makers, Boeing Co. and Lockheed Martin Corp., in a fight for military contracts worth as much as $70 billion through 2030. For eight years, the Pentagon has paid Boeing and Lockheed - operating jointly as United Launch Alliance - to launch the government's pricey spy satellites without seeking competitive bids.

Have we talked about the Sahara tent yet? Let's talk about the Sahara tent. Approximately the size of a small airplane hangar, it's where Coachella puts the big, dumb dance music that for many these days serves as the festival's main draw. And Friday night it was where Martin Garrix and Zedd -- two of the genre's youngest, most successful stars -- undammed the pent-up energy of 10,000 or so Millennials awash in hormones (and whatever else). It was almost frightening, the level of intensity in the space when 17-year-old Garrix dropped the central riff of his hit "Animals," which instantly turned the crowd into a sea of outstretched limbs.

Coldplay rocker Chris Martin didn't have his wedding ring on at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Awards on Thursday night, but that might be the only sign that his "conscious uncoupling" from Gwyneth Paltrow is really a breakup.  After sealing their split oddly with a family vacation to the Bahamas, the two have since ventured out together looking "lovey-dovey," according to a  People  source. Martin and Paltrow reportedly held hands, laughed and joked while attending Robert Downey Jr.'s birthday party with their children, Apple and Moses, on Sunday.  Partygoers were surprised by the affectionate display to the point that the source said it wouldn't be a surprise "if a report came out in a couple of weeks that they are back together.

Last May, the Dutch dance music label Spinnin' Records quietly uploaded part of a new track to its social media accounts. "Animals (Teaser)" was an instrumental number, full of evil sing-songy synth riffs and stuttering drums. Early speculation pegged the song as a new single from established dance stars like GTA or Hardwell. But the actual artist was Dutch producer Martin Garrix, 17, and "Animals" became the breakout single of the electronic dance music circuit last year. Today the "Animals" official YouTube video has more than 200 million views.

Well, this is awkward. Actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her musician husband, Chris Martin of Coldplay, bought a house in Malibu for $14 million, then they turned around and announced their "conscious uncoupling. " Uncoupling papers will no doubt eventually reveal who gets the John Lautner-designed home, which is set on a secluded acre of land and surrounded by tropical landscaping. The forward-thinking architect designed such structures as the octagonal Chemosphere house in Los Angeles and the poured-concrete Elrod Residence in Palm Springs.

Lew Thomas' first U.S. solo exhibition in almost 20 years focuses on work from the 1970s, creating a kind of bridge between the early days of Conceptual art and the 1980s “Pictures” generation. In this sense, the content and style of the show at Cherry and Martin is familiar; more surprising is the way Thomas' deadpan sense of humor comes through. “34 Avenue Between Geary and Clement” from 1972 is a series of photographs of every building on a San Francisco block. It's urban density's answer to Ed Ruscha's 1966 “Every Building on the Sunset Strip.” Elsewhere, Thomas' work aligns with that of artists like Sherrie Levine and Louise Lawler, who shifted art's focus to the context surrounding the work.
