Skype has fixed a security flaw that made it possible for hackers to reset passwords simply with a user name and an email address. The Microsoft-owned video-chatting service temporarily disabled users' ability to reset passwords after tech news site The Next Web gave Skype a heads-up on the security hole. "We apologize for the inconvenience but user experience and safety is our first priority,” Skype told TNW . TNW wrote that instructions for the hack were posted on a Russian online forum two months ago. The news site chose not to link to the forum because the hack "is very easy to reproduce," and indeed, TNW said it tested out the hack multiple times and successfully took over a pair of its staffers' Skype accounts.

Workouts don't always have to be sweaty, and my mind and spirit needed some attention after a recent long week.

With the GOP caucuses in Nevada shaping up tonight as the fourth straight defeat for Rick Santorum, the former Pennsylvania senator took his “faith, family and freedom” tour to Colorado, where he asked conservatives to “reset this presidential race” in a party contest here next week. Santorum is banking on networks of religious conservatives in Colorado to revive his flagging campaign with a strong turnout in the state's Republican presidential caucuses on Tuesday. His Colorado supporters include Focus on the Family founder James Dobson and former Rep. Tom Tancredo, an outspoken critic of illegal immigration.

This review has been corrected. See below for details. SAN DIEGO -- Social commentary, familial relationships and quantum theory collide in “Time and the Conways” at the Old Globe, and the results are as formidable as they are engrossing. If any doubts remained that J.B. Priestley was one of the most insightful British dramatists of the 20 th century, this translucent revival of his multilayered 1937 look at one well-heeled Yorkshire family between the wars should set them to rest.

New research shows that bathing different parts of the body with light, even the knees, can reset your biological clock. "Until we did this study, it was widely assumed that in mammals, including humans, their biological clocks could not be affected by light except through the eyes. So this is quite a surprising result," said chronobiologist Scott Campbell of Cornell University. It is especially surprising because the backside of the knee--called the popliteal region--doesn't have any light-receiving organs, such as the rods and cones in the eye. So it seemed unlikely that anything but the eye could be used to reset one's biological clock.

Remember those records that "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" set during its first week at the box office last month? In a few days they could be ancient history. More than 4,000 sold-out midnight screenings via ticketing websites Fandango and MovieTickets, and massive audience interest, as indicated by pre-release polling, point to a record-breaking opening Wednesday for "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" in the U.S. and Canada.

As the UCLA basketball team gathered at Pauley Pavilion for a recent workout, Malcolm Lee looked from player to player, trying to single out a preordained leader. "Could be anybody," the sophomore guard said. "We're basically starting from the ground up." Well, it might seem like that for the Bruins, but as official practice for the 2009-10 college basketball season begins Friday, USC is the team in town that is really starting over. UCLA lost four of five starters from last season, with seniors Alfred Aboya, Josh Shipp and Darren Collison moving on and freshman Jrue Holiday jumping early to the NBA. But USC also has only one starter back, its three best players having left school early.

No more springing ahead. No more falling back. From now on, I refuse to cooperate with daylight savings time. It was tolerable when I had three or four clocks to reset. But now I count over a dozen, what with digital clocks in the VCR, the microwave, a desktop computer, a laptop computer, two cars, three phones, etc. It's not like you can just turn a knob or swing some hands around to reset these clocks. You have to study a lot of manuals. Maybe even hire a consultant with a PhD in electrical engineering.

The seeds of the San Jose Sharks' six-game winning streak, their 8-1-1 record since the Olympic break and ascent to a tie with the Ducks atop the Pacific Division were planted at last season's trading deadline, when Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson and his staff realized their plodding team needed a new identity and a major infusion of youth. "We did the reset/refresh, where we clarified how we wanted to play. We wanted to be a much faster team," Wilson said. He had a head start with strength down the middle in Joe Thornton, Logan Couture, Joe Pavelski and Patrick Marleau, so Wilson mostly reconfigured the wingers and defense.

Getting to see the doctor before the year is over has been on Dave Holt's mind. The 52-year-old employment attorney from Tustin says he's been putting off a visit for some time. "I haven't done my annual physical yet," he says. He and his wife also rush at the end of each year to make sure their three kids are current with their immunizations and checkups. With less than two weeks left in 2013, now is the time to think about your healthcare benefits and whether you have used them to their fullest before time runs out. "If your health plan resets in January, you want to make sure you've taken advantage of those once-a-year benefits like annual checkups and screenings," says Amy Bergner of consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers.

WASHINGTON - Could the real estate market be heading for a new financial storm? Maybe. Some mortgage and credit experts worry that billions of dollars of home equity credit lines that were extended a decade ago during the housing boom could be heading for big trouble soon, creating a new wave of defaults for banks and homeowners. That's because these credit lines, which are second mortgages with floating rates and flexible withdrawal terms, carry mandatory "resets" requiring borrowers to begin paying both principal and interest on their balances after 10 years.

The Lakers were dragging for a team that landed before it took off. Their charter flight touched down at Los Angeles International Airport late Friday night, about three hours prior to an early Saturday morning departure from China. The 12-hour flight and accompanying 15-hour time change left their body clocks wildly askew once they reconvened for practice Sunday in El Segundo. Coach Mike D'Antoni called off practice a little early and noticed a few players were nodding off during a film session.

It was just a few ticks of the clock before midnight Thursday when Ed Orgeron blended his own feelings into those of USC football fans. "Today, I woke up happy," he said, "and I'm not a happy guy. " Friday morning, most USC fans, who had been like Orgeron, woke up the same. Orgeron called USC's 38-31 victory over Arizona "an A-plus. " In most ways, he was right. The Trojans needed to win. Period. Be it a fluke, or by a bad call. Even the lights going out and changing the momentum.

In an effort to speed up play when coaches are trying to slow it down, the NBA has cut back on late-game timeouts and also penalized teams trying to foul to get possession of the ball. One rule change, announced Tuesday, trimmed timeouts from seven a game to six, from four to three in the fourth quarter and from three to two in the last two minutes of regulation or overtime.

Despite initially blaming an individual employee for helping set off a massive hack on a Wired journalist, Apple has now taken some of the responsibility and will improve its AppleID phone identity verification. Holes in the Cupertino company's phone verification process as well as others at Amazon led to hackers accessing pretty much every part of reporter Mat Honan's digital life and ruining large portions of it. Amazon addressed the issue and on Tuesday confirmed it took steps to end the exploits on its behalf that led to the hack.

Do you stay up late and wake up groggy? Then consider getting a tent and a sleeping bag. A week of camping may help reset your body's internal clock, a new study suggests. Researchers from the University of Colorado-Boulder recently took eight people on a weeklong camping trip in the Rocky Mountains to see what would happen to their sleep cycle if they were exposed to nothing but natural light for seven days. Campers were told to leave flashlights, cellphones and other light emitting electronics at home. Nighttime campfires were permitted.

A crew member's inappropriate response to a fire alarm on the Carnival Splendor cruise ship in 2010 led to a loss of power that forced nearly 4,500 passengers to endure a hot, four-day tow back to port, a U.S. Coast Guard report found. Many air conditioners, refrigerators and toilets stopped working during the tow back, according to passengers. Details of the crew's mistakes are contained in a scathing, 51-page Coast Guard report on the fire that broke out Nov. 8, 2010, as the ship sailed from Long Beach to the Mexican Riviera.
