Los Angeles Daily News reporter Scott Wolf will be allowed to attend USC practices and games while the university and representatives from the Los Angeles Times, the Daily News and the Orange County Register try to work out an agreement on what can be reported from in-season practices. Wolf had been suspended by USC after reporting Monday that kicker Andre Heidari had undergone knee surgery and would be sidelined for about three weeks. The Daily News report did not cite practice-related information, but USC considered it to be a violation of its practice policy.

Airline mergers have put more than 70% of the nation's domestic traffic in the hands of four major carriers. But low-cost airlines still have some influence over airfares. A new study shows that when airlines such as JetBlue, Spirit, Frontier, Alaska and Southwest launch service on an existing domestic route, the average price from all carriers drops as much as 67%. It's good news for travelers, but aviation experts say most popular routes are still dominated by the four biggest carriers: United, Delta, Southwest and the soon-to-be-merged American and US Airways.

Dennis Latta, the editor of Loboland.com, took 10 th -ranked New Mexico's loss to Harvard hard. He announced he will quit after 33 years covering the team. Latta made his announcement on Loboland.com , beginning a long rant with, “I really thought that the University of New Mexico finally had a men's basketball team that earned the loyalty of their fans. I was wrong.” Good thing Latta wasn't on the beat 35 years ago. The fourth-ranked Lobos, led by Michael Cooper, were poised for an easy run to the 1978 Final Four, with the West Regional held in Albuquerque.

LONDON -- Our friends over at Yahoo (Fourth-Place Medal) unearthed this wildly entertaining clip of the unsuspecting Sky News reporter at the London Olympics who was caught off guard by a big kiss on the cheek from a female spectator. Cheeky, indeed. The reporter, who was in the middle of his stand-up remote, handled the crazy moment quite well and had a good laugh after she sprinted up from behind him. The fan, wearing a English soccer jersey, said: "Thank you!" before planting the kiss.

Moments before Metta World Peace charged toward me, he issued a stern warning. "Don't flop," the eccentric Lakers forward said. "Stand and be a man. " World Peace had just spoken for eight minutes on a number of issues surrounding the NBA's announcement that it will fine players for repeated flopping. He bemoaned the league's policy but also admitted frustration with repeat floppers. He argued referees should simply stop granting charges so liberally. "If I ran into you right now with full force, you'd probably move back a little bit first," World Peace said to me. "You're not even an NBA basketball player.

Your browser does not support iframes. Don't mess with a reporter doing a standup. It's a lesson Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus learned the hard way. Andrus decided to mess with Emily Jones of Fox Sports Southwest while she was doing a hit. He threw a towel on top of the camera while she was talking, completely blacking her out. Jones responded by squirting him with a spray water bottle. (Where the bottle came from, we do not know.) The guys in the broadcaster booth initially thought  that right fielder Nelson Cruz was the culprit but Jones took to Twitter to identify the true troublemaker.

Bryce Harper has Twitter abuzz Wednesday morning. But all the fuss isn't just about the monster game he had Tuesday for the Washington Nationals -- it's about what he said afterward. One line in response to a query from a reporter in Toronto following the Nationals' 4-2 win over the Blue Jays: "That's a clown question, bro. " Harper had just posted his second straight three-hit game -- one that included the longest home run of his young career -- to help the upstart Nationals win their fifth straight game and pull to a four-game lead in the National League East.

  Lee Valsvik, a reporter for the NBC affiliate in Minneapolis, was busy hyping Saturday's game between the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers when her cameraman got a little carried away. Valsvik was wearing a Vikings jersey while hyping the game, but little did she know that her cameraman was running full speed behind her, and then knocked her over while running past her. You really have to see it to believe it. Luckily, you can see it above. So, what was the guy thinking?

CAIRO - Middle East Respiratory Syndrome has come to Egypt. State television said Saturday that the country's first case had been discovered. It said the patient, who was hospitalized in Cairo, had recently traveled to Saudi Arabia, where the virus was first identified. Saudi Arabia had announced hours earlier that the death toll in the kingdom had reached 92. In addition, an Indonesian man who had traveled to Saudi Arabia died Friday after returning home, and the virus has been found elsewhere in the Middle East, including Jordan and the United Arab Emirates.

CAIRO -- The only candidate running for president against Egypt's former military chief, Abdel Fattah Sisi, has reportedly said that if elected he would put Sisi on trial in connection with the deaths of hundreds of protesters. "I don't treat Sisi as a criminal, but I plan to bring him to court …. When I do this, I aim to heal wounds without opening up new confrontations," candidate Hamdeen Sabahi was quoted as saying by the Egyptian news outlet Youm7 on Friday. Sabahi's campaign denied the comments were his. But Youm7 posted an audio recording of a voice that sounded much like the candidate.

One of the earliest public responses by a Clippers player following racist comments allegedly made by team owner Donald Sterling didn't involve a single word. Clippers center DeAndre Jordan posted a picture to his Instagram account Saturday morning that was simply a square black image. Jordan then tweeted the link to his more than 426,000 Twitter followers without adding any commentary. The image seems to be similar to the blacked-out profile image that people used in support of Trayvon Martin, the black teenager shot to death in Florida by George Zimmerman in 2012.

Between a cluster of bars in this small coastal town, middle-aged European men hover around dozens of fresh-faced Brazilian women in tight dresses. Around the corner, two girls who look to be in their teens flag down cars, signaling their availability to potential clients. Most such activity, however, seems confined to a small, seedy tourist strip, the last gasp of a bygone era. Natal, long known as a hot spot for sex tourism, has seen fewer problems in the wake of a national economic boom and concerted government efforts to cut back on the Carnaval nation's carnal image.

Foreign correspondent Jay Morgan isn't yet 40, but he is burned out by war. He lost his wife, a combat photographer, to a bullet in Beirut. By the late 1990s, he is in Kosovo, where Serb paramilitaries are skirmishing with Albanian-ethnic rebels. When the atrocity level gets too high -- and Jay is able to predict which atrocities will make Page One and which won't disturb the American public's slumber -- NATO will intervene with bombs and cruise missiles.

SLOVYANSK, Ukraine -- Ukrainian government troops killed at least two pro-Russia separatist gunmen in Slovyansk on Thursday and drove away others occupying key public buildings in the city of Mariupol in an operation the Kremlin condemned as the Kiev government attacking "its own people. " Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said the actions in eastern Ukraine and the deployment of NATO forces in member states bordering Russia to the west had "forced" the Kremlin to order more military drills of its troops amassed on Ukraine's border.

In the ongoing battle over offshore drilling, a federal judge in Alaska told regulators Thursday to redo an environmental impact study that underestimated the amount of recoverable oil and, potentially, the risks to delicate Arctic habitat. The decision by U.S. District Judge Ralph Beistline stopped short of scrapping the $2.6 billion in leases, however. His ruling followed an appeals court decision in January that federal officials had arbitrarily decided drilling companies could extract 1 billion barrels of oil from the shallow waters off the northwest coast of Alaska.
