UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley was a bit flustered, something opposing defenses might not be able to cause this fall. Asked how the college football world will greet the Bruins when they return for August training camp, Hundley said, "Great question. With open arms?" Hundley turned serious, "That's a tough question to answer because what I expect is different from what everyone else will expect of us. " Actually, not so much. The bar will be set high for UCLA entering the 2014 season … in the locker room and in the public's eye. "We definitely should be considered as a big-time program," said linebacker Myles Jack.

Most film productions tend to spend a lot of time shooting a relatively narrow range of subject matter. "One Day on Earth" takes a slightly different approach. "Think globally, film locally" could be the motto for "Earth," a crowd-sourced film project originally founded to document a single 24-hour period with video snapshots from around the world. After holding three such events since 2010, the project's creators are now zooming in further with "Your Day. Your City. Your Future," a similar 24-hour collaboration that will take place across 11 American urban centers, including Los Angeles, and explore the issues and cultures poised to define cities over the next 20 years.

There are two ways to look at UCLA's spring game. There's the cleats-on-the-ground view: "We need to make sure we lock into everything," safety Anthony Jefferson said. "We need to make sure we're assignment perfect. " And there's a coach's big-canvas brush strokes: "I wouldn't put stock at all in the results of a spring game, who plays well and who doesn't," Coach Jim Mora said. "It's just a piece to the puzzle. " The Bruins wrap up spring practice with a scrimmage at the StubHub Center on Saturday at 5 p.m. Mora said he wanted a "real game" and divided the teams along traditional lines - first-team offense against first-team defense, second-team offense against second-team defense.

In the new movie "Hateship Loveship," Kristen Wiig's character, an introverted, thirtysomething housekeeper named Johannna practices kissing herself in the mirror. It's a moment of loneliness that Wiig and director Liza Johnson envisioned as a sad beat in the film. But at a screening last September at the Toronto International Film Festival, Wiig was shocked when audiences laughed at the scene. "I'm so surprised that comes across as funny," she said in a recent interview at a Los Feliz cafe.

Currently, the Bruins have nine healthy offensive linemen, Mora said.
