The Ducks had won 10 consecutive games but proved they are human Sunday night as the streak was ended by the San Jose Sharks. Playing the second of back-to-back games after Saturday's overtime win against Phoenix, the Ducks reached San Jose holding a comfortable seven-point lead over their second-place Pacific Division pursuer, knowing they will meet again New Year's Eve in Anaheim. With urgency lacking against the more desperate rival, the Ducks were immediately swarmed by the more energetic Sharks and fell, 3-1, after six straight road wins.

The Elias Sports Bureau has been busy with all things Martin Jones since the Kings' rookie goaltender made his first start earlier this month. In fact, the way things are going, Elias might have to start a separate Martin Jones category. Jones is one victory away from tying the NHL record for consecutive games won to start an NHL career, which is held by Bob Froese, who won his first eight games with the Philadelphia Flyers in the 1982-83 season. The Kings have duly supplied that information in their notes packages, of late.

As the holder of one of the winning tickets for the $648-million Mega Millions jackpot claimed her prize, the wait for whoever bought the other winning ticket in San Jose continued Thursday. In the absence of anyone coming forward, local media focused much of their attention on the owner of the store who sold the winning ticket, Thuy Nguyen, who took over Jenny's Gift Shop just four months ago. Nguyen was met by a throng of cameras and reporters who wanted to know what he'd do with his $1-million retailer bonus and who he thought the ticket-purchaser might be. His is a small shop patronized by regulars, many of whom come in multiple times a day to re-up on their lottery chances, the San Jose Mercury News reported.

When it comes to televised sports, executives root for teams in large markets from opposite coasts to build excitement and grow the audience. Mega Millions, a different kind of sport, scored the same kind of blanket media coverage with its announced winners in Atlanta and California for the near-record $636-million jackpot. The odds of winning lotteries are impossibly high -- about 1 in 259 million for the jackpot in Mega Millions. It is almost more likely that anything else in human experience will happen than winning.

San Jose State University is assuming control of, and scaling back on, an online initiative with education provider Udacity, officials said Tuesday, putting in question a collaboration that once symbolized the brave new face of online learning. Instead of five for-credit courses open for a fee to anyone, this spring the university will offer three online classes -- elementary statistics, introduction to programming and general psychology -- that will be open only to students enrolled at San Jose State or the other 22 Cal State campuses.

A ruptured water line shut down a terminal at Mineta San Jose International Airport on Monday, prompting warnings of long lines and delays for passengers. A hot-water line in Terminal A broke about 2:15 a.m., leaving standing water 2 to 3 inches deep in the sky bridge that connects the parking garage to the terminal's security area, airport Rosemary Barnes told KGO-TV . Maintenance crews stopped the flow of water at about 4:14 a.m., but the terminal remained closed during the rush hour commute for clean up. All airlines that operate out of the terminal, including American, All Nippon Airways, Delta, JetBlue, United, U.S. Airways, Virgin American and Volaris, were affected.

On Dec. 1, 1948 - 65 years ago this month - Jose Figueres, then president of Costa Rica, made a fiery and eloquent speech, after which he took a sledgehammer and bashed a hole in a huge stone wall at the nation's military headquarters, Cuartel Bellavista. Its imposing towers and massive gates had loomed over the capital city of San Jose since 1917, the country's premier symbol of military power and the home of the "Tico" military establishment. Figueres was not just being a showman; he was announcing something truly extraordinary: Henceforth, Costa Rica would take the almost unheard-of step of renouncing its military.

Commissioner Bud Selig told the Oakland Athletics six months ago that they would not be allowed to move to San Jose, attorneys for Major League Baseball said in a court filing Friday. The formal notification letter was not included in the filing, but MLB attorneys wrote that Selig "was not satisfied with the club's relocation proposal. " The rejection of the proposed move was "his final decision," according to the filing. However, the decision was specific to that proposal and was not a judgment that the A's would not be allowed to move at all, according to a person familiar with the matter but not authorized to discuss it. It is expected that the league would consider a new proposal once the court case -- filed by the city of San Jose -- is resolved.
