Use this Pilates roll-down exercise to stretch and strengthen your core muscles. Leaning against a flat wall to perform the move helps you hold and maintain a C-curve shape to your spine. Grasp a light dumbbell in each hand and stand with your back against the wall. Your shoulders and hips should touch the wall. Walk your feet forward, bend your knees slightly and firmly press your back into the wall. Let your arms hang below your shoulders. Tuck your chin in toward your throat and begin to roll down until just your lower back and the back of your pelvis remain in contact with the wall.

DALLAS - The Ducks have been here before, and not just in the physical sense. Of course they've been to American Airlines Center, where they lost the third and fourth games of their playoff series against the Dallas Stars and surrendered the edge they'd earned by winning the first two games at home. But by overpowering Dallas, 6-2, at Honda Center on Friday, the Ducks took a 3-2 series lead and moved into position to close out the series Sunday. They've been there, too, needing a road win to wrap up a playoff series, but didn't do it. It was just last season.

To those who say cinema may be dying a slow death, have you heard about the new Peeps movie? OK, so it doesn't seem like the animated film will actually happen anytime soon. As first reported on Deadline, it's just one screenwriter (Adam Rifkin, best known for “Mousehunt” and “Underdog” - at least there's an animal theme) who's optioned the film and TV rights to the quirky candy and still needs a script, let alone financing and a distributor. But still. Think of the puns.

Men interested in a permanent form of birth control are turning to an unlikely source for medical advice - "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" correspondent Jason Jones, who televised his vasectomy on Thursday night's program. As Jones describes it, he went to the doctor after suffering for five years from a mysterious malady that caused him to feel lethargic, gain weight and hear voices at night. The stunning diagnosis: "You have children. " And the condition was contagious, Jones explained: "Tragically, through unprotected intercourse, I had spread children to my wife," fellow "Daily Show" correspondent Samantha Bee . “Similar to herpes, you are stuck with children for the rest of you life.” The children the couple already had could not be “cured,” Jones said, but the simple procedure could prevent future “outbreaks.” So he went to Dr. David M. Weiner (yes, that's his real name)

MEXICO CITY - Johnny Laboriel, a legendary Mexican rock 'n' roll singer and icon for the Afro-Mexicano community, has died in Mexico City, a representative said. He was 71. He died early Wednesday at his home after an extended stay in the hospital for treatment of prostate cancer, the Rev. Jose de Jesus Aguilar, who administered the last rites, said via his Twitter account. Laboriel's specialty was to reinterpret American hits of the 1960s, classics like "Poison Ivy" and "Yakety Yak," translated into Spanish and sung with buoyant enthusiasm and an infectious smile.

Maybe the numbers seem slightly arbitrary, but that doesn't mean they aren't impressive. Zach Greinke is on some kind of roll and has been now for 16 regular season starts. He went six strong innings Friday night, holding the Diamondbacks to a Miguel Montero solo home run and two other hits. In each of those 16 consecutive starts he has pitched at least five innings without giving up more than two runs. That's the longest such streak since 1914, or as far back as the Dodgers can check.

Kristofer Keith, the founder of the design group Spacecraft, will do just about anything with a room, so long as the treatment fits the space. His style is no style, no allegiances to any school, whether lean modern or thrift-store retro. But he draws the line at two things many of us having a hard time resisting: frozen yogurt and cupcakes. Speaking on the phone on his way to Mexico, where a restaurant awaited his discerning eye, Keith clarified his no-trendy-sweets position: "I don't like to see anywhere I design close.

Picking up where they left off in February, the two teams in Super Bowl XLVIII, Seattle and Denver, open the 2014 NFL season with blockbuster games. The league released its schedule Wednesday, revealing the defending champion Seahawks will play host to Green Bay in the opener Thursday, Sept. 4, and Indianapolis will play at the Broncos in the opening Sunday night game. Packers-Seahawks is a rematch of a 2012 "Fail Mary" game won by Seattle on the final play, a controversial touchdown pass that from every camera angle looked to be an interception by Green Bay. Replacement officials called it a touchdown for the Seahawks, however, and that game proved to be the final straw that ended the officiating lockout.

On scratchy radios they listen to Vin Scully for a mere three innings, salvaging what they can of this aberrant young season, brimming with equal amounts promise and poison. "Come on," insists frustrated Dodgers fan Gary Mandell. "We are talking about a legendary announcer…. It's like taking the brushes away from Rembrandt. " There is the sense that maybe we shouldn't make a fuss at all, that the worst thing to do to this Dodgers front office right now is nothing. What if you blacked out 70% of your TV market in a cable standoff, and no one cared?

At the annual White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday, the focus was on health, not chocolate, with exercise stations and healthy eating tips thanks to fitness-focused First Lady Michelle Obama. She even got the president, in shirtsleeves and khakis, to dunk some basketballs and play doubles tennis with the kids. [Los Angeles Times] Advocates for ethical fashion, including green clothing activist Livia Firth, are preparing for the first Fashion Revolution Day to mark the one-year anniversary of the tragedy at Rana Plaza in Bangladesh on April 24. When the garment factory collapsed, more than 1,000 workers were killed, more than 2,500 injured.

WASHINGTON -- Instead of chocolate and candy baskets, the horde of children who gathered Monday on the Sou th Lawn for the White House's Easter Egg Roll got an Eggtivity Zone and a Yoga Garden. To mark the 136th annual Easter event, First Lady Michelle Obama threw in some exercise stations and healthy eating tips along with the traditional fun and games, which included egg-rolling races and storytelling. Speaking from the Truman balcony alongside President Obama and the Easter Bunny, the First Lady said this year's theme, “Hop into Healthy, Swing into Shape,” was an “issue that is near and dear to my heart.” “We want our kids to be the healthiest and the strongest they can be, so they can do well in school and live up to all of their God-given potential,” she said.

The woman made her flight, but without the whole enchilada.  Transportation Security Administration screeners found an unexpected item Monday morning as an Alaska Airlines passenger made her way through a security checkpoint at Sonoma County Airport: an 8-1/2-inch knife, rolled in a tray of enchiladas. "It's unusual," said TSA spokesman Nico Melendez. The tray was passing through an X-ray machine when TSA officers "saw something a little bit out of the ordinary," Melendez said.

The contrast between nostalgia for the Los Angeles River and the reality of it today could not be sharper than at its confluence with the Arroyo Seco, a big, desolate flood-control channel strewn with trash and hemmed by freeways, power lines and railroad yards. Nagged by a sense that a real river lay entombed in all that concrete, L.A. poet Lewis MacAdams and two friends, fortified by coffee and brandy, in 1985 used wire cutters to snip a hole in the fence that separated the river from the city.
