Martin Vasquez imagined many times his aspiration to become coach of Chivas USA. He shared that dream two years ago with Shawn Hunter, the team's president and chief executive, and with Antonio Cue, the team's part-owner. He did it shortly after becoming an assistant coach with Bayern Munich. "The very last thing I said to him," Hunter said, "was it would be an honor for me to introduce you as the head coach at Chivas USA." That finally happened Wednesday when Vasquez, 45, was hired as the club's fifth head coach.

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.

When you talk to Steve Martin about his dizzying array of pursuits, it's hard to know where to begin. It's easy, though, to know where to end -- the 64-year-old gets antsy during interviews because, well, he's got better things to do than talk about all the things he's doing. "I wish," Martin said with a sigh, "I had more time these days." Martin was phoning from New York to chat about his latest film, "It's Complicated," and his Grammy nomination for his album of bluegrass music.

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.

"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.

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.

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.

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?

The most quietly terrifying presence in film today belongs to a gray-haired, 64-year-old French actor with a Danish name. If you are familiar with Niels Arestrup's work, you don't need any convincing. If you're not, "You Will Be My Son" is all the persuading you'll need. Best known for his two films with Jacques Audiard, "A Prophet" and "The Beat That My Heart Skipped" - both of which won him Cesars for supporting actor - Arestrup has also appeared in Steven Spielberg's "War Horse" and, more recently, Belgian director Joachim Lafosse's grueling "Our Children.

U.S. lawmakers have asked Gilead Sciences Inc. to justify the price of its new $84,000 drug for hepatitis C patients amid growing concern about the high cost to taxpayers and consumers. In a letter to the Foster City, Calif., company, Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-Beverly Hills) and two other Democratic lawmakers asked Gilead Chief Executive John C. Martin to explain the rationale for selling Sovaldi for $1,000 per pill. Medical experts say previous therapies for hepatitis C helped only about half of patients and had numerous side effects, such as flu-like symptoms, anemia and depression.

George R.R. Martin's "Game of Thrones" -- known to longtime fans as the "Song of Ice and Fire" book series -- is enjoying big success on television screens. But it might also be destined for something bigger: the movies. Martin told the Hollywood Reporter that a big-screen feature -- with a hefty budget -- might be what it takes to bring the story to its grand conclusion. "It all depends on how long the main series runs," Martin said. "Do we run for seven years? Do we run for eight?

“The Voice” is getting yet another dose of pop star power. NBC's hit singing competition show has recruited Coldplay's Chris Martin to serve as a mentor. Martin isn't jumping into one of the plush, red spinning-chairs occupied by Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Usher or Shakira (who are subbing for Christina Aguilera and the recently departed Cee Lo Green). But he will serve as a key advisor, mentoring the artists on the superstar coaches' teams. Martin's new role will be seen during the series' latest format switch.

CALGARY, Canada - The Saddledome, along with its ever-changing corporate names, was almost like a second home for goalie Martin Jones in his formative hockey years. His junior team, the Calgary Hitmen, shared the building with the NHL's Calgary Flames, and back in those days, Darryl Sutter happened to be the Flames' general manager. On Monday, Jones and Sutter returned to beat the Flames as the Kings won their eighth straight game, surviving a late scare when Calgary scored twice in the last 4 minutes 31 seconds.

An appealing and capable cast keeps the flicker of hope alive that Joanna Murray-Smith's play "The Gift" will be worth our time despite the mounting evidence to the contrary. But by the end of this 90-minute comedy even the actors seem done in by the effort of sustaining the illusion that there's something important going on. Murray-Smith, you might recall, is the Australian playwright who gave us "The Female of the Species," the low-wattage farce starring Annette Bening in the Geffen Playhouse's 2010 production.

It might be difficult for NHL general managers to surpass the magnitude of Tuesday's trade-deadline-eve moves as the clock moves toward Wednesday's noon PST deadline, but plenty of discussions are believed to be going on and at least one significant deal has been made. The New York Rangers, unable to come to terms with team captain Ryan Callahan as he nears the end of his contract, traded him plus a 2015 first-round draft pick and a conditional 2014 second-round pick to the Tampa Bay Lightning for defending NHL scoring champion Martin St. Louis.

In the once-grand foyer of a dark mansion, with rain whipping at the windows, Tobey Maguire raises a glass of Champagne and offers a toast to Catherine the Great. Although it sounds like a scene straight out of "The Great Gatsby," it wasn't West Egg but Beverly Hills. And Maguire was among the guests gathered in an electricity-challenged (thanks to the storm) Greystone Mansion on Friday night to honor the addition of "Gatsby" costume and production designer Catherine Martin -- a two-time (and soon to be four-time)
