Clemson backup safety Kantrell Brown sprained his neck against Wake Forest but is expected to make a full recovery. Brown, a sophomore, lay motionless, face first, on the Clemson field Saturday afternoon after a kickoff return by the Demon Deacons. He was taken off the field on a stretcher with his neck in a brace, although he was moving his legs, arms and hands before he left the field. The school said Brown was taken to Oconee Memorial Hospital in South Carolina where tests were negative for anything more serious.

Officials at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh have announced the recovery of long-unseen digital images that the late pop artist created on a Commodore Amiga computer in 1985. The museum announced Thursday that the images were extracted from floppy disks that Warhol had used to save the files. The images had been inaccessible for years due to the obsolete Commodore format, the museum said. In the '80s Warhol was commissioned by Commodore International to create art with the Amiga to demonstrate its graphic arts capabilities, according to the museum.

It can take several days to recover after experiencing a few nights of little sleep, according to a new study. Researchers found that even a catch-up night of 10 hours of sleep may not be enough to restore many people after they have a few nights of bad sleep. The study involved 159 adults who were assigned to sleep a certain number of hours a night. The participants underwent computerized neurobehavioral tests during the day to assess their cognitive function. Their results were compared to see how well they recovered after various amounts of sleep deprivation.

Two weeks after federal officials criticized its aggressive use of force, the Albuquerque Police Department tried but failed to retrieve video from the on-body camera of an officer who two days ago shot to death a woman suspected of stealing a car. Police Chief Gorden Eden Jr. told reporters at a televised briefing Wednesday that the department has faced similar issues with the small body-mounted cameras and that this officer's device has been...

Less than three years have passed since the deed to the 99 acres of park land in Laguna Niguel was executed "by mistake" in favor of Taylor Woodrow Homes California Ltd. This means that the county could, if the supervisors wanted to, bring an action to rescind the transaction. The action would be to recover title to the real property that has not yet been developed and to recover the profits made on the 100 houses that were built. Does this mean that the county will bring such an action?

Your article on "Sinking Monterey Hills Condo Complexes" (May 18) reflected the casual attitude of the Community Redevelopment Agency towards the affected condo owners. In truth, these owners are faced with urgent financial hardships. They cannot now sell their condos, nor will they be able to do so in the foreseeable future. Owners with young and growing families are unable to move to larger homes because they cannot recover their equity. Owners who are forced to move due to job changes are even worse off. They must pay for two homes, or walk away from their investment in Monterey Hills.

Re "Class-Action Law Firm Indicted in Fraud Case," May 19 This article states that this law firm "has helped investors recover more than $45 billion." From where did they recover this money? It certainly was not recovered from the stock market where it was lost. It came from the equity of the corporations being sued. Who owns the equity? The investors. So, in effect, the investors sued themselves so they could transfer money from one pocket to the other. The lawyers charge a huge fee to make the transfer.

Re "Double Whammy," editorial, Nov. 19: Ha, what a joke! California's power in Congress suffers a blow when two dinosaurs from the flower child '70s retire? Good riddance to Ron Dellums and Vic Fazio. And what about poor Robert Matsui, who laments that it will take years to recover from the loss. Hey Bob, guess what? Republicans are in charge now. You and these two liberal hacks lost any power you had in 1994. Thank heavens! MARK SHRADER Palm Desert

An 8-year-old was recovering Monday after suffering "significant wounds" and had "flesh ripped away" when three pit bulls attacked her in Santa Monica, authorities said.  Police responded to a call of a dog bite about 8 p.m. Sunday in the 1800 block of 21st Street. Moments before, the girl, her mother and a family cousin were visiting a neighbor close to the enclosed property, police said.  Once through the gate, one pit bull approached the girl and sniffed her. Seconds later, the pit bull was joined by two other dogs, who did the same.

SEOUL -- Divers reached the hull of the sunken Sewol ferry Sunday, recovering 16 bodies and bringing the confirmed death toll to 50. With more than 250 people still missing since the ship went down Wednesday, hope of finding survivors has all but vanished. The South Korean navy announced Sunday that one of its sailors who had been participating in rescue efforts has died of a head injury sustained Wednesday. The sailor died Saturday night, the navy said. Divers had been struggling with strong currents and poor visibility in their attempts to reach the Sewol's hull.

SEOUL - The official death toll in South Korea's ferry disaster rose to 49 early Sunday after divers gained access to the submerged vessel and recovered more than a dozen bodies. Government officials reported that divers had retrieved the bodies by breaking a window on the vessel, but it was unclear whether they had gained entry to the ship. In a sign that hope had run out for the survival of any of the 256 listed as missing, officials asked relatives of those aboard to provide DNA samples to expedite the identification of bodies.

Yasiel Puig was late for batting practice and scratched from the lineup, but he wasn't the reason the Dodgers were crushed Friday in their home opener by the San Francisco Giants. Hyun-Jin Ryu was. The pitcher the Dodgers leaned on most in the aftermath of Clayton Kershaw's back injury, Ryu lasted only two innings and gave up every one of the runs scored by the Giants in an 8-4 defeat at Dodger Stadium. This was the very antithesis of the first game here last season, when Kershaw not only pitched a shutout against the Giants but also hit a home run in a 1-0 victory.

The middling "Locker 13" is a "Twilight Zone"-like anthology of quasi-chilling stories mostly unified by an unlucky little storage closet and the theme of choices and consequences. Featuring five short yarns, each spun out by its own writer and director, the film takes a decidedly old-fashioned approach to situation and character. The result is an alternately creaky and intriguing ride, one of earnest ambition and dashed potential. More consistent is the array of knowing performances, led by the dependable Jon Gries ("Napoleon Dynamite")

The Lakers are off on a two-game trip to Milwaukee and Minnesota, but center/forward Pau Gasol remains in Los Angeles, recovering from vertigo. The Lakers will visit the Bucks (13-58) on Thursday and the Timberwolves (34-35) on Friday.  Gasol is certainly out Thursday and, according to a team spokesman, is not expected to travel to Minnesota. Chris Kaman is expected to start in his place. Gasol fell ill Sunday in a win over the Orlando Magic, sitting out the second half and eventually traveling via ambulance for an overnight hospital stay.

The July 19 Market Beat column, "Why it feels worse than it looks," hits the nail on the head when it says, "Expectations have a way of becoming fulfilled." If the public feels pessimistic, we'll probably have a recession or worse. If optimistic, we'll probably recover. The country's president has a lot to do with it. Franklin Roosevelt, John Kennedy and Ronald Reagan had the charisma to generate optimism. Anyone who wants our economy to recover instead of decline should seriously consider the fact that having a charismatic president helps a lot. It can make the difference.

It is not without a degree of anger that I read the Dec. 4 story, "Nine Banks Fail in One Day--Most in FDIC History." As a past employee in the legal department of the FDIC, I am appalled at the cavalier attitude taken by the agency with respect to recovering assets that rightfully belong to the public and the FDIC. I specifically refer to the failure of the FDIC to recover from the directors and officers liability insurance for the acts of negligence by the directors and officers of the failed banks.

WASHINGTON - FBI Director James B. Comey said Wednesday that technical experts at the bureau's laboratory in Quantico, Va., “very shortly” will be able to retrieve computer files that were deleted from a home flight simulator by the pilot of the missing Malaysian airliner. “I get briefed on it every morning,” Comey told a House subcommittee on appropriations, suggesting that the deleted files may provide new clues to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370's disappearance March 8. “We have teams working on it around the clock.

General Motors Co. is mired in one of the biggest auto safety scandals in years. But if history is any guide, car shoppers will be more forgiving than regulators and safety advocates. Ford Motor Co. suffered through problems with Pintos burning up and Explorer sport utilities rolling over when their tires failed decades ago. More recently, Toyota Motor Corp. recalled millions of cars after incidents of sudden acceleration. In each case, the automakers spent billions of dollars to recall vehicles, fix problems and settle legal issues.
