There isn't much David Goldberg, 44, hasn't already done. At 26 he sold his first start-up, Launch Media, for $12 million to Yahoo. Goldberg then served as general manager of Yahoo Music, and later left to work at Benchmark Capital as entrepreneur in residence. In 1999 he acquired a fledgling online survey company called SurveyMonkey and grew it into a billion-dollar business. He also happens to be married to Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook's chief operating officer, whom Forbes declared to be one of the most powerful women in the world.

It could always be worse. The Lakers could have been pounded into a sad corner of team history with Dwight Howard in Houston's lineup. So they got hit with the next worst thing, losing to the Rockets without the injured Howard, 145-130, and clinching their most miserable win-loss record since moving to Los Angeles in 1960. With four games to go, the Lakers (25-53) already outdid the 1974-75 team that went 30-52. The Lakers keep seeking stability, a main reason team executives Jim Buss and Mitch Kupchak recently sat down with Kobe Bryant for a clear-the-air meeting, The Times has learned.

A black thunderbird sends a message from the Creator to the crows fluttering through a burnt sky, and the crows then deliver that message to the people. That Indian legend is depicted on a goatskin drum at the 23rd Annual Powwow at the Orange County Fairgrounds this weekend. The drum, made by Toby Christopher, is one of many handcrafted items on display and for sale at the powwow, which is one of the largest in California.

NASHVILLE  - If there ever were a sports matchup with organic hype, this is it: the first meeting of two undefeated teams in the final of an NCAA women's basketball tournament. Add to that the sass, snark and sniping the coaches of those teams indulged in Monday, and Tuesday's game between Connecticut and Notre Dame has taken on an atmosphere that is multiplying the hype exponentially. Notre Dame's Muffet McGraw said "hate" and "lack of civility" would be fair ways to describe her team's rivalry with Connecticut.

More than 100 Carson residents joined city leaders and sheriff's officials to speak out against gang violence Saturday, four days after a 16-year-old boy was killed two blocks from his home in a suspected gang-related attack. Reginald "Reggie" Hays was fatally shot in the chest while listening to an iPod in his car parked in the 17500 block of Harwick Court on Tuesday afternoon in the Stevenson Village area of Carson, according to sheriff's officials and family members.

The marble walkway leading into the California Club echoes with the ghostly footsteps of land barons, railroad tycoons and political kingmakers. So does the ostentatious front lobby of the Jonathan Club nearby. Private business clubs once were centers of power in downtown Los Angeles. You might have found rail magnate Henry E. Huntington playing dominoes and plotting his next expansion beneath the high, oak-paneled walls. Or William May Garland, the real estate developer, scheming to bring the 1932 Summer Olympics to Los Angeles.

Re "The Brown Act means what it says," Editorial, June 10 I applaud your fine editorial on the L.A. County Board of Supervisors' attempt, via AB 246, to do an end-run around our state's open meetings law, the Brown Act. The people aren't easily fooled. In meeting privately to discuss the state's prison realignment law with Gov. Jerry Brown in 2011, L.A. supervisors broke the law, plain and simple. Requesting that Assemblyman Steven Bradford (D-Gardena) write a bill granting them a "special" exception to the Brown Act shows a lack of respect for the people's right to know.

Dear Assembly, and dear Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors: You've got to be kidding. First, supervisors, some of you made angry and somewhat panicked statements, clearly intended for public consumption, about prison realignment. You foolishly claimed that the policy to transfer supervision over some felons from the state to the county was going to fill the streets with hardened criminals. Then, in September, you broke the law by discussing the situation in private. Your conversation happens to have been with the governor.

The NBA and representatives of its players' union met for six hours Wednesday in New York, with Commissioner David Stern promising more "meetings and meetings" through September to try to resolve the lockout that threatens the upcoming season. Stern told reporters there's "clearly enough time" to strike a new labor agreement that would allow the NBA's regular season to start on time Nov. 1. The meeting in Manhattan was the second between the sides since the lockout took effect July 1. Players' association President Derek Fisher of the Lakers told reporters after Wednesday's session that the union had not changed its "philosophical stance" on issues and added that "both sides [are]

We've all been there — staff meetings that seem longer than "Gone With the Wind. " Not only are they often bad for morale, they can also easily stray into diminishing-returns territory. Here are some tips on making meetings more to the point: •Set goals: By knowing what you want to accomplish, you can streamline the agenda, said Susan M. Heathfield, About.com's human resources expert. "The goals you set will establish the framework for an effective meeting plan. " •Distribute materials ahead of time: Giving employees handouts, charts and graphs a day or so before the meeting allows everyone to come ready for discussion.

The Clippers lost their season opener to the Lakers by 13 points. In the next two games against the Lakers, the Clippers won by 36 points and 48 points. The 48-point margin of victory was the largest in Clippers' franchise history and the largest loss in Lakers' history. "Obviously that was a huge wakeup call for us, that first game," Paul said. "It's funny because Doc [Rivers ] says it to us just about every game. You're just not going to walk in there and win just because you've got Clippers going across your shirt.

WASHINGTON - The top U.S. and Russian diplomats agreed Sunday to work with Ukrainian government officials to ease the crisis triggered by Russia's annexation of Crimea, but remained far apart on other key points after four hours of negotiations in Paris. Secretary of State John F. Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called the meeting constructive. Lavrov's remarks suggested that Moscow may now be more willing to work with the interim Ukrainian government, which it has previously dismissed as illegitimate.

Question: I have lived in Silicon Valley my whole life. I am 70 years old and retired. I recently applied for housing at an apartment complex and asked the leasing agent what my chances were of getting an apartment. He told me they had received a lot of applications. When I asked if it was worth it to apply at all, he shrugged and said I was "up against some Google people. " I was outraged. Am I being discriminated against, since he implied that I did not stand a chance of being chosen over a person who works for Google?

WASHINGTON - Michael Robertson put the bag of chemicals in an inside pocket of his sport coat, the pump in the other. He snaked the tubes between the buttons of his shirt to the port in his chest. He adjusted his tie to cover them. Then he sat down in a cavernous room in the White House complex and pulled his chair close to the table, hiding the bulges. Robertson, an aide to President Obama, was meeting with top officials from federal agencies working to implement the Affordable Care Act. He was also in treatment for stage IV colorectal cancer.

Just weeks after a plea for her birth mother to step forward blazed through media outlets across the globe, Katheryn Deprill stood just one room away from the woman who abandoned her as a newborn 27 years ago in a Burger King bathroom. As she got ready to meet with her birth mother, Deprill entered the lawyer's conference room with a lifetime of questions. Why did she leave me? What does she look like? But before the answers even started, Deprill got something else.

Stocks edged higher ahead of big meetings by the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank this week. The central banks could take highly anticipated steps to prop up U.S. and European economies, moves that could jolt equity markets higher. After a choppy start, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 21 points, or 0.2%, to 13,097 shortly after the opening bell on Wall Street. The broader Standard & Poor's 500 index was up 2 points, or 0.2%, to 1,388. The Nasdaq gained 9 points, or 0.3%, to 2,967.

WASHINGTON - President Obama's public push to restore relations with his congressional colleagues entered its second stage - the luncheon phase -   Tuesday, when he conferred with Senate Democrats for the first of four midday meetings on Capitol Hill this week. Obama gathered with his allies for more than an hour at their weekly, closed-door strategy session at the Capitol. Top on the president's agenda is his effort to resolve the budget fight with congressional Republicans, as well as efforts to pass immigration reform and gun control.

Re "The man who died laughing," Opinion, March 24 I comment Carol Starr Schneider for writing such a wonderful tribute to her father, Ben Starr. My dad, whom I lost in October, shared a lot of Ben's traits. He used humor as a coping mechanism and enjoyed being funny and making people laugh. The downside was that my sisters and I never got to know the person behind this very entertaining facade. He was a closed book as far as emotions and feelings went. He wanted to keep everything light.

ROME - After spending four days in Europe dealing with the crisis over Russia's annexation of Crimea, President Obama now turns to a diplomatic challenge of another sort: trying to smooth relations with Saudi Arabia without making the longtime U.S. ally seem like an afterthought. Obama is scheduled to arrive in Riyadh, the Saudi capital, shortly before sunset Friday to meet with King Abdullah, whose inner circle is riled by how the United States has handled Iran's nuclear ambitions and Syria's civil war. Some with close ties to the royal family have talked about breaking ranks with Western partners.
