As I stroll around the Queen Mary, checking out every gadget and gizmo at the 12th annual Invention Convention, I just can't decide which one I'd recommend most. I like the Hoodlum Welding Hood--a mask for professional welders, but made to resemble a bulldog, a skull or a gorilla. (No welder should be without one.) I like the stick-on disposable bibs--like a diaper, only for the other end. (No baby or sloppy adult should be without one.

Milton Resnick, an abstract expressionist painter whose work is in the collections of many major American museums, has died. He was 87. Resnick died March 12 at his home on the Lower East Side of New York City. The cause of death was suicide. Resnick was born in the Ukraine; his family emigrated to the United States when he was 5 and settled in Brooklyn, N.Y. As a teenager he enrolled in a commercial art program at the Pratt Institute, but was encouraged to pursue fine arts.

I was both shocked and amused at the letter to the editor ("No Time to Worry About Popularity," Dec. 20) by Dr. Barry Resnick, president of the Orange Unified School District Board of Education. Shocked to read that an elected official has indicated his refusal to work with the other school board members. Talk about thumbing your nose at the voters. I was amused, however, because it appears that after three years in office, Dr. Resnick has finally decided to stand for something--as misdirected as community-bashing may be. Furthermore, Dr. Resnick's repeated calls for the scalp of the interim superintendent would cost the district over $200,000.

Restaurants with a view usually come in two varieties: landscape or cityscape. The new Ray's and Stark Bar at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art have a view. But it's not the ocean or the city lights spread on a starry carpet below. Instead, the new museum restaurant revels in a wide, sweeping view of the Resnick Exhibition Pavilion designed by Renzo Piano. In other words, great architecture. Now museums aren't, in general, known for harboring distinguished restaurants. And the original one at LACMA (like this one, also run by the Patina Restaurant Group)

Let no one state that Lynda Resnick shouldn't be proud of the marketing skills she mustered to turn her pomegranate juice into a household name. In her 2009 memoir, she describes in detail her campaign to "create a market" for a product that only a small fraction of Americans were even aware of. The Beverly Hills business owner, art collector and philanthropist even pays homage to the red baseball-shaped fruit in the title of her book, "Rubies in the Orchard. " Here's the money quote: "People needed pomegranate juice in their lives (even if they didn't know it yet)

Fred Goldman's lawyer said Wednesday that there is "not a single shred of evidence" linking the murders of Ronald Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson to Faye Resnick and drug activity, as O.J. Simpson has alleged. Attorney Daniel M. Petrocelli issued a challenge to Simpson to come forward with any proof that he has on this issue. Simpson was unavailable for comment. Petrocelli said Simpson's lawyers initially filed papers saying they wanted to depose Resnick but never served her.

The Federal Trade Commission has filed a complaint against Los Angeles-based pomegranate juice maker Pom Wonderful and its billionaire owners, Lynda and Stewart Resnick, alleging that they violated federal law by making "false and unsubstantiated claims" about the health benefits of their products. Since its launch in 2002, the garnet-red juice in the curvy little bottle gave way to a marketing craze of flavored fruit teas, martinis and salad dressings — a culinary boom bolstered by Pom's products advertised as helping to treat conditions including heart disease, prostate cancer and erectile dysfunction.

Would Lynda Resnick have been able to save Marie Antoinette from the guillotine? It's difficult not to wonder as much when the marketing dynamo, known as the POM Queen for the pomegranate-juice empire she runs with husband Stewart, starts discussing the French queen's public relations problems. Wearing a flesh-colored Dior dress with Louboutin shoes, Resnick was standing at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in front of a painting she owns: a luminescent portrait of a young Marie Antoinette by Elisabeth-Louise Vigée.
