The Los Angeles City Council is discussing whether to limit the number of energy drinks city employees can consume while on the job. Apparently too much energy in a public employee can be dangerous. Councilman Bernard C. Parks introduced a motion last year asking for a report on options to restrict the consumption of energy drinks by workers on duty. This followed news reports that the Food and Drug Administration was investigating allegations that five deaths were linked to adverse reactions to energy drinks.

It should be quite a meeting, if it ever happens. Alecko Eskandarian, say hello to Dietrich "Didi" Mateschitz. Eskandarian, as Major League Soccer fans know, is the D.C. United striker whose timely goals led the team to its fourth MLS title in 2004. He is also the son of Andranik Eskandarian, one of the galaxy of stars who graced the Cosmos when they ruled the North American Soccer League roost 30 years ago.

Tens of thousands turned out Saturday in Long Beach for the creative and slightly wacky Red Bull Flugtag competition, in which teams attempt to fly man-made machines off a 30-foot dock. In many cases, they almost immediately plummeted to the water. Though the event is certainly made for fun, the production of each Flugtag isn't taken lightly. Teams of up to five people work for weeks, even months, perfecting their flying machine. Each machine must be homemade, human-powered, less than 28-feet wide and weigh no more than 400 pounds, including the pilot.

After a 72-hour programming binge, Derek Fugasu and his team of software developers had hit a wall. They had to deliver a working model of a hopelessly botched e-commerce engine in 16 hours, and some team members were beginning to babble. At 4 a.m., long after the Santa Monica bars once favored by upscale Internet workers have locked up, Fugasu dragged himself down the street into the shock-white lighting of an all-night 7-Eleven.

Recently, one of my colleagues, a pediatric gastroenterologist, told me about a teenage boy who had come to see him because of severe stomach pain he'd had for about two months. The boy had been referred by his primary care doctor, who had evaluated him for several possible causes, including infections and ulcers. That doctor had also recommended or prescribed a variety of medications to relieve the pain, but to no avail. The specialist performed an endoscopy, in which a camera is inserted into a patient's esophagus and down into the stomach and upper part of the small intestine.

Some MetroStars fans call it "insulting" or "offensive," or compare it to a death in the family. Austrian energy drink company Red Bull's purchase of the Major League Soccer team and its decision to rename it Red Bull New York may be shocking to some fans, but it isn't unprecedented -- nor is it likely to be followed any time soon by a rash of copycats, marketing experts say.

INSTEAD of General Motors, how about Specific Motors? While its fortunes in the high-volume Everyman-sedan market have been ever so sketchy lately, the world's biggest car company definitely has some mojo in male-enhancement products, limited-production cars such as the Corvette C6 Z06, the Pontiac GTO -- now with hood scoops! -- and our test car, the 2005 Chevy Cobalt SS Supercharged Coupe, which is a very fine little car despite its resemblance to a cheese slicer.

Brett Miller tried, but he couldn't outrun the bull. His Moondoggies restaurant and bar in San Diego was once among the region's biggest sellers of Red Bull, a highly caffeinated soft drink that does double duty as a cocktail mixer. Yet when Miller switched brands, the beverage maker stuck him with a lawsuit. Having single-handedly created the so-called energy drink category when it charged into the United States from Austria seven years ago, Red Bull controls 62.

Chaleo Yoovidhya Billionaire developed Red Bull energy drinks Chaleo Yoovidhya, the self-made Thai billionaire who introduced the world to "energy drinks" and co-founded the globally popular Red Bull brand, died Saturday of natural causes in Bangkok, according to local media reports and state television broadcaster MCOT, which cited the Thai Beverage Industry Assn. Forbes magazine, which ranked him the 205th-richest man in the world this year with a net worth of $5 billion, said he was 80. Several Thai media outlets cited his birth date as Aug. 17, 1923, however, indicating he was 88. It was not immediately possible to explain the discrepancy.

NEW YORK--The Tribeca Film Festival that ended Sunday occupies an odd niche in the movie-confab calendar, which among its oddities includes a large number of posts about the odd niche it occupies in the movie-confab calendar. But amid all the hand-wringing about what the festival is (or was, or should be) is the fact that, these days, there are some pretty solid titles making their premieres here. In some cases these are world premieres. In others, they are North American premieres -- which, given how many Americans don't make it to the Berlin Film Festival, where many of these movies first appeared a couple months ago, is basically a distinction without a difference.

NEW YORK--Nearly all sports documentaries follow a rise and fall pattern, sometimes changing up the sequence but rarely the elements.  The good ones, though, manage to follow the formula with style and depth. It's easy to make the case that the Tribeca Film Festival world premiere "McConkey," a new documentary from a group of directors working for Red Bull's media arm, falls in the latter category. The profile of the extreme-sports pioneer Shane McConkey is both remarkable to look at and, at a screening I attended, didn't leave a dry eye in the house.

The Formula One championship race became more crowded atop the standings when Ferrari driver Fernando Alsonso claimed victory in the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai on Sunday. Reigning series champion Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull finished fourth to remain atop the standings, but he's only three points ahead of Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen, who finished second in Shanghai. Alonso is now third in the series standings while Sunday pole-sitter Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes, who took third, is in fourth place.

In arguably one of the biggest trades in the franchise's short history, Chivas USA on Thursday acquired striker Juan Agudelo from the New York Red Bulls in exchange for defender Heath Pearce and allocation money. Moments later, Chivas announced another deal, sending midfielder Michael Lahoud and allocation money to Philadelphia in exchange for Union defender Danny Califf. Agudelo, a 19-year-old rising star with the U.S. national team, has six goals in 33 matches with the Red Bulls over the last three seasons.

Reporting from Avondale, Ariz. -- Few could have blamed Kasey Kahne and his Red Bull NASCAR Sprint Cup team for ending this season with a whimper. They finished with a bang instead. Kahne won the Kobalt Tools 500 at Phoenix International Raceway on Sunday to snap an 81-race winless streak, and Red Bull won for only the second time since the team joined the Sprint Cup series in 2007. And it wasn't a fluke. Kahne has had perhaps the strongest showing of any Cup driver in recent weeks except for Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart, who will decide the championship next weekend after finishing second and third, respectively, behind Kahne on Sunday.

In Los Angeles, where medical marijuana dispensaries outnumber Starbucks and McDonald's restaurants combined, a mood-altering beverage with a cannabis-oriented marketing campaign is gaining traction. Southern California has become the bestselling market for Mary Jane's Relaxing Soda, a sugary drink laced with kava, a South Pacific root purported to have sedative properties. Matt Moody, a Denver nutritional supplement developer who created the beverage, said the name is an unabashed reference to weed, though the relaxant compounds in kava are chemically unrelated to those in marijuana.

Apparently the Angels aren't the only ones who aren't getting what they paid for. Just a few miles down the freeway Major League Soccer's Galaxy has put together the most expensive collection of stars in its sport too. And though that brought them a title last year, the embarrassment of riches has been just that — an embarrassment — so far this season. After Saturday's 1-0 loss to the New York Red Bulls on Joel Lindpere's first-half goal, the Galaxy has already lost as many games this year — five — as it did all of last season.

The Galaxy goes before a national television audience again Saturday when it plays host to the battered New York Red Bulls on ESPN. But are Major League Soccer's defending champions ready for their latest close-up? "We need to start showing people why we were champions last season," midfielder David Beckham said after training Friday. "At the moment it's not right at all. All the way through the team. " In fact the not-ready-for prime time players, at 3-4-1 after two months, have lost just one fewer game then they did all of last season.
