Setting the pace Getting 10,000 steps per day roughly coincides with the latest U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommendation that adults get a minimum of 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week. The key word here is "moderate" -- not all steps meet that requirement. Shuffling around the kitchen making dinner is hardly equivalent to racing to catch a bus or walking an energetic dog. Any movement is good, of course, but to make the steps count as beneficial as possible, they should be fairly sustained.

As USC reached the midway point of spring workouts Thursday, Coach Steve Sarkisian decided to shake things up. About an hour into the Trojans' eighth practice, players gathered in an end zone at Brian Kennedy-Howard Jones Field for a competitive one-on-one drill. A dance contest. Players whooped and hollered as teammates squared off in the surprise competition as music blared from sideline speakers. "Guys have some moves and some guys don't," Sarkisian said. "I think some guys might listen to country music.

In a sport that isn't lightning fast to begin with, Kevin Na has earned a reputation as one of the slowest players on the PGA Tour. His glacial pace at the Valspar Championship over the weekend has revived calls for golf to institute a basketball-like shot clock. Don't look for Na -- who was cited for pace of play during the third round -- to support a change.  "I got criticized but I really don't think it's fair," he said after the tournament. "I was just playing my game.

For decades, the push for solar power has stalled not on public support but on cost. That might be about to change with the launch of a tax program that's exciting some industry veterans. Gary Garber is one. Garber built his first solar panels from scratch back in 1976. They went up on his parents' rooftop in nearby Walnut Creek, Calif. Today he runs Sun Light & Power, a 60-employee solar panel installation firm that's been behind some of the San Francisco Bay Area's biggest solar power arrays.

Marathoners typically have two goals: finish the race, and finish the race under a set time without hitting the wall. One researcher thinks he's found a new formula that calculates how much carbohydrates a runner needs to eat and at what pace he or she needs to run in order to complete the race without feeling any ill effects or dropping out. Running the 2005 New York marathon was the catalyst for the study by Benjamin Rapoport, a student in...

Fatuma Sado, a 20-year-old Ethiopian runner, is on pace to break the women's course record for the L.A. Marathon during Sunday's 27th annual running of the 26.2-mile race.  This is Sado's fourth marathon and second this year, but she has been dominant. She took the lead in the seventh mile, separated herself in the 12th and has only put distance between her and the second-place runner from there.  Sado is on pace to break the course record of 2 hours, 25 minutes, 10 seconds, set by Lidiya Grigoryeva of Russia in 2006.  If Sado is the first runner -- man or woman -- to cross the finish line in Santa Monica, she'll win a $100,000 gender challenge bonus as well as $25,000 for winning the women's marathon.

Urbanites have plenty of reasons to fear country folk, at least in the movies. Getting away for the weekend so often turn into a showdown with masked murderers that heading out to the country seems like a game of Russian roulette. In writer-director Jeremy Lovering's exceptional British thriller "In Fear," the needy, nebbish Tom (Iain De Caestecker) rolls the dice by booking a room at a remote hotel for himself and his maybe-kinda girlfriend, Lucy (Alice Englert), to celebrate their two-week anniversary.

1. Walk or bike to work once a week. 2. Don't park your car in the spot closest to the front door. Instead, find the parking stall farthest away. (Of course, take security into consideration.) 3. Stairs, no elevators. 4. Stop the impulse to email. Instead, get up off your duff and walk to a colleague's desk to deliver a work message. 5. Walk 15 minutes before work. (That's 71/2 minutes in one direction, and then turn around.) 6. Walk 15 minutes at lunch. 7. Walk 15 minutes after your shift ends.

Part sword-and-sandal spectacle, part disaster epic, "Pompeii" accomplishes its ambitious agenda to largely engrossing effect. Sure, it's not the brainiest of outings, but director Paul W.S. Anderson (the man behind four of the "Resident Evil" films) keeps the action apace and the lava a-flowing with workmanlike energy and sufficient visual dazzle. Set in AD 79, immediately before and during the cataclysmic eruption of southern Italy's Mt. Vesuvius, the script by Janet Scott Batchler & Lee Batchler and Michael Robert Johnson places a star-crossed romance at the center of one of the ancient world's most legendary calamities.

The action, which took place Jan. 15, means that the 50-year-old Pace may no longer practice law. After five years he may apply for reinstatement, but such actions "very rarely happen," according to bar spokeswoman Kim McCready. Pace could not be reached for comment.

He was injured in the first quarter against Hawaii at Aloha Stadium on Sept. 6.

Families boosted their borrowing late last year at the fastest pace since the global financial crisis, a sign that Americans are gradually reopening their wallets as they feel more secure in their jobs. Household debt jumped $241 billion to $11.5 trillion in the fourth quarter, the biggest increase since the third quarter of 2007, according to data released Tuesday by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. "This quarter is the first time since before the Great Recession that household debt has increased over its year-ago levels, suggesting that after a long period of de-leveraging, households are borrowing again," said Wilbert van der Klaauw, an economist at the New York Fed. The pickup in debt was a welcome development after a string of disappointing economic reports in the last few weeks.

Let's say you suffered an intensely personal tragedy. And let's say you also happened to have an incredible professional triumph at an Olympics, coming back from retirement and beating the odds at well past athletes' average age, in a sport that requires a level of kamikaze spirit found traditionally among the very young. And you not only competed but medaled. Should you then, in taking a broadcast victory lap the day of your win, have to discuss that personal tragedy in front of a national audience?
