Robert Proctor doesn't think ignorance is bliss. He thinks that what you don't know can hurt you. And that there's more ignorance around than there used to be, and that its purveyors have gotten much better at filling our heads with nonsense. Proctor, a professor of the history of science at Stanford, is one of the world's leading experts in agnotology, a neologism signifying the study of the cultural production of ignorance. It's a rich field, especially today when whole industries devote themselves to sowing public misinformation and doubt about their products and activities.

More than 25 years ago, Stanford University petroleum engineering graduates Halbert S. Washburn and Randall H. Breitenbach had a brainstorm. The major U.S. oil companies were abandoning oil fields nationwide for cheaper crude opportunities abroad. Why not form a company to fill the void by buying existing oil fields at low cost and extracting all of the crude that remained in the fields the industry giants had left behind? So they formed BreitBurn Energy Partners, now based in downtown Los Angeles.

Anywhere else, linking an aromatic cup of coffee and a gooey glob of oil would quickly kill a restaurant. Not so in Taft, Calif., the Taft Crude Coffee House is a popular stop for hot coffee or iced mocha. And in an era when oil spills tend to be environmental disasters, people here are happy to provide directions to the Lakeview Gusher, even though it spewed more than 9 million barrels of oil, nearly twice the amount spilled in 2010 from the Deepwater Horizon, the ill-fated British Petroleum rig in the Gulf of Mexico.

Lauren Rich's field goal with 1:14 remaining and good defense helped Christ College Irvine defeat Fresno Pacific, 70-69, in a Golden State Athletic Conference women's basketball game at Christ College Irvine. With 13 seconds left, Rich (16 points) was fouled and her free throw attempt ricocheted off the rim and into the hands of a Fresno Pacific player. The Lady Eagles' man-to-man defense prevented Fresno Pacific from attempting a game-winning shot before the buzzer.

It's funny how much a little bit of love from the right people can change a person's whole demeanor. Once notoriously shy and almost always reserved in person, Maxwell--whose sexy soul-singing style has been compared to that of such masters as Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye--said in early interviews last year that the reason he became a performer was to find a bridge of communication to the world at large.

Snow Chief isn't the only bargain colt that's making his way into the $500,000 Santa Anita Derby Sunday. Imperious Spirit, Icy Groom and Jetting Home are other starters that will collect considerably more than their purchase price if they win the 1 1/8-mile race and its $275,000 purse. Snow Chief, of course, long ago exceeded his humble beginnings, which were the result of breeding a $2,000 stallion (Reflected Glory) to a mare (Miss Snowflake) who had earned only $2,308 on the track.

With an eye toward the decline of its Alaskan oil reserves, Atlantic Richfield Co. said Thursday that it expanded its venture with Russian oil giant Lukoil by committing $5 billion to jointly develop projects in the former Soviet Union. The 18-year agreement, which replaces an earlier $3-billion, 10-year plan announced in March, may be years from producing any results.

Three blocks and a world away from the bustling Port of Los Angeles, Maria Mendoza surveyed the street her family has called home for 23 years: a scattering of neat stucco houses and small apartments wedged among a trucking yard, an auto-wrecking operation, a lot stacked with rusty barrels and another bearing the sagging remains of a nightclub. Old tires littered an alley.
