Plans for the first extensive pollution cleanup in Marina del Rey history have sparked a revolt by boat owners at the tony harbor that could echo along the length of the California coast. The Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board on Thursday will consider rules that would force boaters to strip copper paint from the bottoms of their boats and replace it with a less toxic alternative. To clean copper already in the water, the plan also calls for the county to spend at least $147 million dredging the nearly 50-year-old marina, the nation's largest manmade recreational boating harbor.

Amasa Delano, a New England sea captain sailing off the Chilean coast in February 1805, thought he was helping a ship in distress when he boarded the Tryal with an offer of food, water and assistance. Adrift in dangerous waters, its worn hull covered with barnacles and trailing seaweed, the Tryal was, indeed, in distress. But not in the manner Delano suspected. The Tryal was a Spanish slaver on which the slaves had revolted two months earlier, killing most of their captors while sparing Capt.

Conservatives are calling it their August Revolt -- a surprising upsurge of activism against President Obama's proposed healthcare overhaul. Spurred on by the success of their efforts to dominate the news at Democratic town hall meetings, conservative groups are reporting increases in membership lists and are joining forces to plan at least one mass demonstration in Washington next month. But the conservative mobilization has also created an unusual dilemma for Republican leaders, who want to turn the enthusiasm into election victories next year but find themselves the target of ire from many of the same activists.

Marek Edelman, the last surviving leader of the ill-fated 1943 Warsaw ghetto revolt against the Nazis, died Friday in Warsaw. He was 90. Edelman died of old age at the family home of his friend Paula Sawicka, where he had lived for the last two years. "He died at home, among friends, among his close people," Sawicka said. Most of Edelman's adult life was dedicated to the defense of human life, dignity and freedom. He fought the Nazis in the doomed Warsaw ghetto revolt and later in the Warsaw Uprising.

Aaron Wildavsky's virulent review of Ortega y Gasset's "Revolt of the Masses" (Book Review, Dec. 15) and his disparagement of its translator, Anthony Kerrigan, apparently was the result of ideological opposition to this famous work. Anthony Kerrigan is a leading American translator of Spanish literature and a recipient of the American Book Award for his work in his field. His introductory essays are classics in themselves. Because of his bias, it would have been discreet of Mr. Wildavksy to have foregone reviewing this book.

“The revolution will be televised.” That's what Sean “Diddy” Combs promises for his lifestyle cable network, Revolt, set to launch in July. Ahead of the launch, the hip-hop mogul has rolled out a social media campaign to tease the network, including video vignettes that feature Mac Miller and the Game and a handful of cryptic trailers promising Revolt's aim to be a game changer. The channel will focus on art, music, fashion, culture and film -- all things Combs knows quite well.

The cigarette smoke hovers dense inside the neighborhood cafe. Young patrons knock back beers at greasy wooden tables. A heated debate rages about Syria's revolt. The rotund bar owner labels the rebels baltajiya , or bandits, who are ravaging towns and villages. Demonstrators want only change and freedom, replies a young man in a hooded sweat shirt. Others wrangle over the president and the uncertain future. It is a striking scene for a tightly controlled police state.

"To all the dreamers out there, all the believers out there, all the people that want a change in...

BEIRUT - Security forces for the Shiite-led Iraqi government raided a Sunni protest camp in northern Iraq on Tuesday, igniting violence around the country that left at least 36 people dead. The unrest led two Sunni officials to resign from the government and risked pushing the country's Sunni provinces into an open revolt against Prime Minister Nouri Maliki, a Shiite. The situation looked to be the gravest moment for Iraq since the last U.S. combat troops left in December 2011. The violence Tuesday started in the Sunni town of Hawija, where shooting erupted during the raid.

When he was a boy, the blind sheik was forced to read Moammar Kadafi's Green Book manifesto in Braille, his fingers trying to decipher the erratic mind of a leader who brutalized a nation. "It was nonsense, the work of a madman," said Yosry Alhadar, one of the most prominent clerics in rebel-held territory in eastern Libya. "There was absolutely no value in it. He wanted the world to know that Libya is Kadafi and Kadafi is Libya. That they were indivisible. But the world is now watching the whole facade collapse.

Dissident shareholder Greenlight Capital claimed in a filing made Friday in its lawsuit against Apple that a growing number of investors are joining its protest against the way the company is handling its upcoming shareholder vote.  In the filing, Greenlight includes a statement from Thomas Long, a senior vice president at D.F. King & Co., a firm that helps facilitate shareholder votes on corporate proxies, among other things. Long's declaration claims there has been a groundswell of shareholders seeking to change their votes since Greenlight went public with its dispute.

It's getting hard to find a public official in Putnam County, N.Y., who thinks putting the names of gun permit-holders on a map does anybody good. On Thursday, a flock of officials gathered at a news conference to announce their support for County Clerk Dennis Sant's decision to refuse a public-records request by the White Plains-based Journal News for a list of licensed handgun permit-holders, whose names and addresses are public record under law. The state's top open-records official previously told the Los Angeles Times that county officials would be breaking the law by refusing the newspaper's request.
