"Unnatural History" is the first scripted all-live-action series from Cartoon Network, which, like many other cable networks no longer quite lives up to its name. The channel has already tested these waters with cartoon-related live-action specials (a "Scooby-Doo" movie, a couple of "Ben 10" films) and the cartoon-human sitcom "Out of Jimmy's Head," and last year floated a slate of original and imported kid-themed reality shows. But this is them putting their whole leg in and shaking it all about.

"If we get these games, then we'll be at the top of the West for sure," center Andrew Bynum said. "That's a great early-season test." Test or otherwise, Bynum will be back Thursday after missing two games because of a strained right elbow and sore right triceps.

President Obama sent a salvage operation team that quickly revealed that the opportunity already had been lost. There weren't any willing partners to refocus the conference on fighting racism, xenophobia and intolerance. And so the president made the hard but right choice: The U.S. should not associate itself with this effort to vilify Israel and to undermine human rights standards.

The ingenuity of public school teachers has long been tested. The bake sale, the wrapping-paper drive, the silent auction -- all have been called on over the years to underwrite school supplies. For many, the sacrifice is more personal. Education groups say the typical teacher spends between $400 and $500 of his or her own money to make ends meet in the classroom. To that tradition now comes a new entry: paid advertising.

A look at some issues surrounding today's game: Pop quiz: USC flunked its Oregon State quiz, letting running back Jacquizz Rodgers run wild. UCLA has a good defense that would look better if it wasn't always on the field. On their shoulders: Kevin Craft has tested the Bruins' patience, but he's healthy.
