Despite all the recent focus on female empowerment and "leaning in" at work, California women are still paid just 84 cents for every $1 paid to men in the state. In the Golden State, a woman who works a full-time job earns, on average, $41,956 a year, compared with $50,139 for a man who works full time, according to an analysis from the nonprofit advocacy group the National Partnership for Women & Families. That's a wage gap of $8,183 per year between the genders. Collectively, California women lose out on a total of nearly $37.7 billion annually, the report said.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Kentucky freshman guard Aaron Harrison launched a last-seconds three-point shot Monday from the same spot he'd knocked two straight opponents out of the tournament. This time he didn't make it, though, and this time it didn't matter. Connecticut didn't just defeat Kentucky, 60-54, to win the NCAA title Monday night before a crowd of 79,238 at AT&T Stadium. BOX SCORE: Connecticut 60, Kentucky 54 Connecticut never trailed in the game, going wire to wire to cap a tournament run that was even more improbable than Kentucky's.

San Francisco police are investigating after witnesses reported that a group of men tipped over three Smart cars late Sunday or early Monday. “I thought it looked like they were up to no good and then sure enough they walk up to this Smart car right here, all huddle around it, and then life it up and set it on its hind legs,” resident Brandon Michael told CBS San Francisco. The pint-sized, two-door coupes were either set on their hind quarters or tipped completely over. The feat of upending a car listed at roughly 1,800 pounds may take more muscle than merely pushing over a snoozing cow, but the vandals also appeared to know what they were doing, according to one witness.

The two towers approach delivered a single, familiar result. Another Lakers loss. Pau Gasol got his wish, the chance to play next to fellow 7-footer Chris Kaman, but nothing really changed Tuesday in a 124-112 victory by the Portland Trail Blazers at Staples Center.

BOX SCORE: Portland 124, Lakers 112 Also in the predictable file: Steve Nash left in the second quarter because of a sprained left ankle.
