She was among about 700 people injured in raucous and often violent celebrations in the Philippines this week, the latest in a tragic tradition in a country where police have tried to clamp down on celebratory gunfire and dangerous pyrotechnics.

SOCHI, Russia - The closing ceremony here was meant to celebrate the new face of Russia.

INDIO -- Self-described “model-sociallite” Silka (no last name given) drifted across the densely populated Coachella VIP section during the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' evening set attired in a crocheted shawl, a $400 Malia Mills bikini and a pair of Marc Jacobs sneaker wedges. She was sipping discreetly at a vodka cranberry in a plastic tumbler and turning heads with every step. The New York-based native of Hungary explained she had spent the better part of two days earlier this week sifting through her wardrobe to find precisely the right ensembles for three days' worth of festival revelry beneath Indio's baking sun. “Of course I love the music but of course I want to look good,” Silka said as a male companion smiled in nodding agreement.

You missed a noteworthy component when you named the venues that USC students are patronizing in downtown L.A. ["No Helmets Required," Nov. 30]. Of the four bars you mentioned, none are frequented by SC students with any real magnitude. And after reading the comment by Daniel Ness, "We don't need to cater to them ... you don't want a bunch of frat guys spilling Jagermeister everywhere," I can see why. My partner Mark Verge and I purchased Casey's Irish Bar in 2002, long before any of the bars on your list were in existence.

When poll workers arrived at Hillcrest Drive Elementary School in Baldwin Hills at 6 a.m., eager voters were already lined up in the morning darkness. When the election was called for President Obama some 15 hours later, Crenshaw Boulevard erupted in a joyful blast of honking horns. If 2008 was about history-making and hope, here in the heart of middle-class, black Los Angeles, 2012 was about practicality and pride. Getting to the White House was one thing. What the first African American president accomplished there was quite another.

Coachella off-site parties are now as important as the event itself to many L.A. attendees, especially as they shift away from heavy-handed corporate branding and zero in on club culture. Yes, this year we still saw Brent Bolthouse's Armani Exchange Neon Carnival, the crocodile-branded Lacoste party and fetes from Guess and Chevy motors, but other L.A.-area promoters and DJs are bringing a different kind of heat. Coachella's first weekend saw more club-like parties at events by DJ Anthony Giancola (booker at club Harvard & Stone)

Partying until daybreak, flying the red eye, cramming all night for an exam - these are just a few reasons for skimping on beauty sleep. And rarely in these circumstances is there the luxury of taking the next day off to nurse oneself back to happy, radiant wellness. No, life often requires suiting up for work, school or something as nerve-racking as the first meeting with the significant other's family. But there are ways to minimize the pain. Or at the very least, to fake it by looking fabulous through the magic of makeup or by having a restorative treatment.

Hidden at the back of Bar Marmont , the Chateau Marmont's exclusive boîte , is a lavish private dining room drenched in crimson hues, with a vaulted ceiling papered with vintage ads, a large wooden table and chairs and an attractive smoking patio. Late on a recent Thursday, the drag queen Constance Cooper sits on this patio with style journalist Rose Apodaca and a few other friends, drinking a glass of white wine and playfully discussing the sorry state of the modern young party crowd.

Party animals beware: Newport Beach may soon declare open season on wild revelers and their hosts. City police have proposed a new ordinance restricting "loud and unruly gatherings. " The law, modeled after one in Tucson, would allow city officials to fine partygoers up to $8,000 for repeat violations. Police and some residents have, for years, tried to tame partiers here, especially those who overtake west Newport on the Fourth of July. The new law would discourage rowdy gatherings and make the city more "family friendly," proponents say. "We would like to see stricter enforcement and less second chances," said Councilman Steve Rosansky, who represents much of west Newport.

After several salt baths, the snails still were not dead. Plump and apparently unfazed, some had even made a break for it, latching on in crevices between the kitchen cabinets, along the sides of the bucket that held them and on the floor. Dinner might have to be late. Eric Causse was preparing a meal of fresh escargot for the village women. It was the third day of the annual fete locale , or traditional village fair, for this medieval hamlet in southwestern France, and the women deserved a treat.
