Not even the weather feels the same, not with a warm evening breeze ? a little too warm for November ? drifting across the football field at Los Angeles Roosevelt High. There is a buzz in the air from coaches barking and players yelling encouragement to one another and neighborhood folks who have come out to watch practice, chatting in the stands. The new kid, the one at linebacker, has been warned that nothing compares to the week when Roosevelt plays rival Garfield for the unofficial championship of the Eastside.

VATICAN CITY - President Obama visited Pope Francis for the first time Thursday, a meeting the White House hoped would amplify the two men's shared concern about economic inequality rather than the president's conflicts with the Roman Catholic Church hierarchy at home. Obama introduced himself to Francis as a "great admirer. " The pope has become internationally popular as he has shed some of the lavish trappings of the papacy and focused his teachings on caring for the poor. Obama has sought to borrow some of that goodwill for the new pope to help promote his own effort to reduce income inequality in the United States.

The collective wits behind the new Cosby show ("The Cosby Mysteries," NBC) had better start thinking revisions, revisions, revisions. The always wonderful Rita Moreno is wasted in a silly, thoughtless role. Give her something to do. Cosby's rapport with kids is well known, but the current kiddie bits do nothing but slow the pace.

Some filmmakers want to show you their heart, while others are content to train their cameras on their navels. Director-writer-star Kevin Hamedani opts for the latter category with his quasi-autobiographical buddy comedy "Junk," an insular, fitfully amusing look at the film festival world from the perspective of two novice screenwriters. Hamedani and his co-writer and costar Ramon Isao made the political B-movie "Zombies of Mass Destruction. " In "Junk," they play fictionalized versions of themselves - Kaveh and Raul, feuding writing partners who collaborated on the political B-movie "Islama-Rama 2: Mustafa Lives" and need to produce another screenplay on the quick to impress a powerful Japanese genre producer Yukio Tai (James Hong)

This is in rebuttal to David Boatman of La Canada (Viewers' Views, April 23), who complained about the "inane banter" KNBC anchors Kelly Lange and Keith Morrison carry on with other reporters. My husband and I disagree with him. We thoroughly enjoy the friendship and rapport among those people, so much so that we switched from Channel 7 to Channel 4. We also could not stand to listen to Bill Press on Channel 7 any longer. Mr. and Mrs. Phil Van Westen, Lynwood

I thought it was interesting that the "helpers" displayed problems similar to those of the "helpless." The lack of respect, criticism and negative rapport between Father Greg and the police department mirror some of the same issues between the gangs. I hope the "helpers" can get it together and provide united power to help turn the gang situation around. LORETTA LYNCH Los Angeles

I can see by the letters published in TV Times and elsewhere that everyone who watched "Wiseguy" is mourning the end of Sonny as portrayed by Ray Sharkey. Since electric shock closely simulates death and we never saw his funeral, perhaps he is alive and the police want it kept a secret so they can use him as an undercover informer. C'mon, producers, forget realism. When did you last see a pair with such rapport as Sonny and Vinnie (Ken Wahl)? As a last resort, you could always have Sonny walk out of the shower (with apologies to "Dallas")

When two performers work together in ways transcending the usual definitions of stage rapport, the results can be quietly magical. So it is with Adriana Sevan and Jill Remez, playing off each other in the Nilo Cruz reverie "Two Sisters and a Piano," now at South Coast Repertory. In every sense of the word, the performances are lovely. And a lot more than merely that.

Michael Mann is a visual stylist of the highest order, but he has gotten signature performances from elite actors. He reflects on some of them: Daniel Day-Lewis in "The Last of the Mohicans" (1992) "There's a tremendous confidence that you get as an actor that you as a man or as a woman can do what your character does. If you're playing Daniel Boone and you know that you can be dumped into wilderness and have breakfast, lunch and dinner, four seasons a year, and survive, it shows.

BEIRUT - The surprising election of Hassan Rowhani, a moderate cleric, as Iran's president has prompted a wave of speculation about a crucial question: Will Iran's new leadership be more willing to compromise on its nuclear program? No one knows for sure, but some Iranians express hope that Rowhani has both the credentials and the personal relationships necessary to make headway on the issue, which has wreaked havoc with Iran's international relations and led to sanctions that have all but crippled the nation's economy.

He knows all about his patients: who likes to cook, whose blood pressure is out of control, who is quarreling with her husband. He keeps track of their appointments and recalls many of their phone numbers by heart. Calvin Woodard isn't a doctor or a nurse. Woodard is a driver. Every weekday, he ferries dozens of patients in an old white van to and from the To Help Everyone (T.H.E.) Clinic. As the clinic's only driver, Woodard, 59, is a critical part of its operations. He is the patients' unofficial counselor, confidant and, perhaps most important, conscience.

For the first time during a boisterous joint interview with Barbra Streisand, who plays his mother in the new comedy "The Guilt Trip," Seth Rogen seemed at a loss for words. The question posed was straightforward: Did he grow as an actor working with veteran Streisand ("Funny Girl," "The Way We Were," "Yentl," "A Star Is Born") in the buddy comedy opening Wednesday? But Rogen hesitated. "I don't know," said Rogen, 30. He looked over at Streisand, one of a relative handful of entertainers who have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony, sitting next to him on a sofa at a Beverly Hills hotel room.

When he opened the door to his office, Bradley Cooper could have passed for a grip who'd lost his way around the Warner Bros. lot. His hair - partly covered by a U.S. Open sun visor - had an oily sheen to it. He was wearing baggy red sweat pants and shoes that resembled slippers. He needed to shave. The Sexiest Man Alive didn't look so hot, and his two childhood friends, Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal, didn't hesitate to tease him about it. "Nice outfit, Coop," said Klugman, plopping down on a shabby chic couch.

After reading a truly good poem, one finds it hard to look at the world in quite the same way again. And to share that awakening with other people in a live reading is one of the joys of the form, as the poet fills the room with transformations as though the words were reinventing themselves. This weekend, newly announced 2011 Pulitzer Prize winner Kay Ryan joins fellow poet Billy Collins at UCLA's Royce Hall to read their work and tilt the world ever so slightly off its axis. Both are former U.S. poets laureate, and Ryan won the Pulitzer for her book "The Best of It," a collection of new and selected poems.

Norris Church Mailer, an actress, model, author and painter who enjoyed and endured the ride of her life as the sixth and final wife of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Norman Mailer, died at her home in Brooklyn on Sunday. She was 61. Her death was announced on the website of the Norman Mailer Society , which said she passed away "after a long and valiant struggle with cancer. " As Norris Mailer wrote in her 2010 memoir, "A Ticket to the Circus," she was a single mother in her mid-20s when she met the then-52-year-old Norman Mailer at a 1975 party in Russellville, Ark. Their attraction was immediate, even if he was breaking up with his fourth wife and seeing the woman who would become his fifth.

The "fruits" have done more to popularize underwear than Madonna, and with a whole lot less to work with. The fruits, as Grey Advertising affectionately calls its creations, include an apple (Harry Goz), a purple grape (Sam Wright), a green grape (Joey Faye) and a leaf (Ray Xito ). Thanks to them--and their predecessors--the Fruit of the Loom logo has come to life for 12 years and more than 5,000 airings, bringing humor to a colorless subject--white cotton briefs.

The deepening slide inĀ  Facebook Inc.'s stock is fueling talk once considered implausible on Wall Street and in Silicon Valley. Should Mark Zuckerberg, the social media visionary but neophyte corporate manager, step aside as CEO to let a more seasoned executive run the multibillion-dollar company? In that scenario, Zuckerberg would remain as the creative force propelling Facebook's technological innovation. But the 28-year-old would cede the CEO title to someone better suited to overseeing operations and building rapport with finicky investors - mundane but essential duties for which Zuckerberg has shown little appetite or aptitude.

Reporting from New York ? To tell the big-screen tale of Valerie Plame, a real-life CIA spy whose covert identity was blown by the White House, director Doug Liman needed a special kind of actress: someone who could build an emotional wall around herself and still convey "a sense that there's a good person inside her. " He was convinced that that actress was Naomi Watts. But after a pre-shoot with Watts and costar Sean Penn last year, Liman called his producer in a panic. "We've got to toughen Naomi up, a.s.a.
