The Federal Communication Commission's efforts to apply stricter oversight of partnerships between local television stations has created tensions inside the regulatory agency and with broadcasters. On Wednesday, the FCC's Mass Media Bureau issued a public notice saying it would "closely scrutinize" applications from television stations seeking to enter joint sales agreements or local marketing agreements. Such arrangements have become commonplace in the industry. Typically, a strong station partners with a weaker station on ad sales and/or other operations.

The state attorney general's office has found that Newport Beach's Hoag Hospital can continue to refuse to provide elective abortions as long as the hospital helps women access those services elsewhere, according to an agreement announced Friday. The agreement, approved by the state and Hoag last month, closes an investigation sparked by allegations that the hospital had misrepresented the effects of its partnership with a Catholic healthcare provider and was limiting women's access to a full array of reproductive health services.

Some of this season's award contending films are the fruit of deep-rooted creative partnerships. Here, we look at three such pairings: the longtime alliance of director Martin Scorsese and editor Thelma Schoonmaker, frequent collaborators David Cronenberg and Viggo Mortensen, and the budding brotherhood of Oren Moverman and Woody Harrelson. "Hugo" Scorsese and Schoonmaker have worked together on all the director's features since 1980, including "Hugo," which melds the stories of a young orphan living in a Paris train station in the 1930s and the early days of filmmaking.

The Galaxy's present met its future Saturday at the StubHub Center. And it was likely the future of Major League Soccer that was on display as well. On one side were Robbie Keane, Omar Gonzalez and Landon Donovan, guys you've probably heard of. Let's call them Galaxy I. On the other side - we'll call them Galaxy II - were Travis Bowen, Raul Mendiola and Cody Laurendi, guys you probably haven't heard of. But the organization is hoping those will soon be household names as well, which is why it founded a USL Pro team, basically a minor league affiliate, for whom they can play and train.

Los Angeles County's supervisors agreed Tuesday to explore a long-term partnership with Homeboy Industries, a 25-year-old program that helps former gang members transition into a new life. The nonprofit organization has hit financial difficulties, in part because of a dramatic reduction in government funding of its programs. The organization laid off about 40 people last fall and may have to cut another 60 jobs this year due to a projected $1 million drop-off in revenues. The county has given the group about $2 million in discretionary grants in recent years, according to a memo from Supervisor Don Knabe's office, but does not have an ongoing contract with Homeboy for services.

All companies sit somewhere in a supply chain. Most have competitors and collaborators. And yet we look at businesses very often in isolation - as if their results depend solely on their own separate efforts. The principal achievement of the book "Network Advantage: How to Unlock Value From Your Alliances and Partnerships" is to draw attention to the importance of these broader networks to the success or failure of businesses. With detailed and thoroughly researched case studies, the authors - Henrich Greve and Andrew Shipilov of INSEAD global graduate business school and Timothy Rowley of the Rotman School of Management in Toronto - show how to take a more systematic approach to the portfolio of networks and alliances in which businesses find themselves.
