Seems like a simple enough question. Seems like a pretty basic one. Like one the new owners would want to answer, what with the fans having just been dragged through an ownership nightmare. Alas, at their morning press conference Wednesday it wasn't happening. Guggenheim Baseball Management is the new owner of the Dodgers. After that, it's fill in the blanks. As if you could. At least for now. Six individuals were introduced at the press conference, but exactly who owns how much of the team was left unanswered.

When the offbeat BBC cooking show "Two Fat Ladies" was given a green light in 1996, costar Clarissa Dickson Wright did not have the highest hopes. "I found it very hard to believe," she later wrote, "and thought perhaps it might be a cult series with a moderate but good audience. We had no idea. " It quickly became an immense hit - on both sides of the Atlantic. In the U.S., where it made its debut in 1997, "Two Fat Ladies" helped grease Food Network's ascent to a cable TV powerhouse, earning top prime-time ratings that made Dickson Wright and co-host Jennifer Paterson bona fide, if improbable, celebrities.

The relationship status feature of Facebook appears to be central to the happiness - or not - of many romantic relationships among young people, according to new research. The study, appearing in the journal Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking, surveyed 58 heterosexual couples -- most college-age -- who had been dating for an average of 19 months. The study showed that partners tended to be similar in how they used social media and the importance they placed on it. In 45 of the 58 couples, both partners reported being in a relationship on Facebook.

Bodin Issara and Maneepong Jongjit played as badminton doubles partners for Thailand in the 2012 Olympics. But now they are rivals, and it showed this past weekend when a fight broke out between the two while playing on opposite sides of the net at the Canada Open. With both men already issued a warning after a verbal exchange earlier in the doubles match, Issara lunged at Jongjit, chased him onto a connecting court and punched him several times before being dragged away and held down by coaches and tournament staff.

An HIV-positive Missouri man may have exposed hundreds of sexual partners with the virus that causes AIDS because he feared rejection for telling them he was infected, police said. David Lee Mangum, 37, of Dexter, a small town in southeast Missouri, was arrested last week on suspicion of reckless exposure to HIV after his former 28-year-old partner tested positive for the virus and turned Mangum in to local police. According to a probable-cause statement, the partner, identified as D.B. in court documents, met Mangum in October 2012 through a Craigslist ad. D.B. told police that before the pair had sex, he'd questioned Mangum about whether he had any diseases, and Mangum said no. He said the pair briefly lived together and had unprotected sex -- sometimes involving other men -- before breaking up in June.

One of the supposed byproducts of the Kings acquiring Marian Gaborik was the notion that forwards Jeff Carter and Mike Richards could resume their partnership, helping shake Richards out of a prolonged slump. It hasn't quite happened. Richards has three goals in 2014 - nine in all this season - and has no points in the last six games since scoring the game-winner at Winnipeg on March 6. In the last five games, Carter has one assist, but he did score in the shootout of Thursday's win against Washington.

It wasn't clear Thursday at Indian Wells whether Martina Hingis was making a comeback or just having a little fun with some hit-and-giggle tennis. Last year, she was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame. That usually indicates that a playing career is over. But there she was Thursday, drawing perhaps a half-full house in the BNP Paribas tournament's new 8,000-seat Stadium 2, playing doubles with her friend and occasional tennis student, Sabine Lisicki of Germany.

Mike Garson obviously takes the piano very seriously, but he can chuckle over some of the contradictory paths that a versatile mastery of the keys has led him down. Maybe the unlikeliest of all is the one he's embarking on Saturday at Segerstrom Concert Hall in Costa Mesa, where he'll lead 44 instrumentalists, augmented by a 55-voice children's choir, in the premiere of his "Symphonic Suite for Healing. " Even an accomplished musician like Garson, who's best known as a key sideman during David Bowie's 1970s rise to superstardom but who usually plays jazz or a jazz-classical fusion when left to his own devices, can laughingly confess that what he's doing isn't brain surgery or as important as finding a cure for cancer.

Baker III's comments in a letter he wrote last week about provisions of the new tax law to take effect Jan. 1 affecting corporate takeovers.

American Airlines has eliminated its so-called bereavement fares for people who need to book a last-minute flight because of the death of a loved one. The airline, which is merging with US Airways, said it discontinued the fare as of Feb. 18 to be consistent with the policies of US Airways. In the past, American Airlines offered a bereavement fare that was lower than typical last-minute fares but varied based on route, departure time, availability and other factors. In a statement, the airline said: "With the advent of more choices, lower cost carriers and larger networks, the industry has started to move away from bereavement fares because walk-up fares are generally lower than in the past, and customers now have more opportunities to find affordable fares at the last minute.

TEMPE, Ariz. - It's far too early to determine how Albert Pujols will rebound from a subpar season that was cut short by a left-foot injury, but early returns on the slugger are encouraging. "I feel awesome," said Pujols, who had right-knee surgery after 2012 and suffered a partial tear of the plantar fascia in his left foot last July. "To be able to do things with no pain or discomfort, to have my legs underneath me, to move around and have the load I want in my swing … that's the biggest difference.
