Reporting from Bethesda, Md. — Robert Rock did not set foot at Congressional Country Club until Thursday. He didn't even get to the Washington area until 3:30 a.m. Thursday. Somehow, the English pro sleepwalked through a one-under-par 70 in his opening round. How does one explain that? "I don't know, really. I'm playing OK at the moment," said Rock, whose U.S. Open debut nearly got strangled in red tape as he awaited a visa. Approval didn't come until Wednesday afternoon, sending him scrambling to catch a U.S.-bound flight.

Futurists tell us that within a handful of years, almost all TV programs will be received not via antennas or cables or any sort of wires but by parabolic dishes--possibly no larger than dinner plates--gathering in signals directly from satellites. If this indeed is the near future, we current dish watchers wonder why we're under a state of siege. I mean, as pioneers, you'd think we would be honored, not continually harassed.

The "Heartbleed" software flaw that triggered alarm bells around the world could fundamentally undermine two decades' worth of efforts to persuade consumers they could trust the Web to securely handle such tasks as buying a pair of shoes and applying for a job. The discovery of a gaping hole in a piece of software that was supposed to protect personal information from hackers left websites rushing to fix the bug while consumers struggled to understand...

Arriving on horseback, foot and motorbike, Mongolians voted in a tight election today in the hope of producing a government with a strong mandate to give the country an economic boost by tapping into huge mineral wealth. An election four years ago resulted in a hung parliament, leaving the parties to scramble to form a government.

A video pirate using the nickname "Capt. Midnight," who briefly jammed a satellite TV signal to broadcast a protest of cable television signal scrambling, was fined $5,000 and given a year's probation today. John R. MacDougall interrupted Home Box Office's signal to complain against HBO's decision to scramble its satellite signal so dish owners could not receive it without paying a monthly fee.

The play developed like so many others for Mark Brunell and the Jacksonville Jaguars. He rolled to his left, found his receivers covered and saw room to scramble. For the first time since tearing ligaments in his right knee, Brunell never gave it a second thought. He ran. Brunell was back to his old self Sunday in a 21-13 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, throwing for three touchdowns and again showing his ability as a scrambler.

I was one of the 10,000 fans out at the Coliseum Sunday. Sure, those guys were scabs, but: --They caught the balls they should have caught. There weren't any balls that hit the receiver in the hands, chest and face and still were dropped. --The quarterback got out of trouble and was able to get out and scramble and get something done--touchdown, completion or first down. --Anyone who knocks the helmet off of another guy is a hitter! Weren't the Raiders like that a few years ago?

Michael Franks and Robert Bell--the dynamic South Bay duo who count Chez Melange in Redondo Beach; Fino, Misto and Depot in Torrance; and Descanso in Hermosa Beach in their mini restaurant empire--have ventured north to Los Angeles for the first time to open the Chez at the Beverly Prescott. With the new restaurant, they step boldly where Hans Rockenwagner (Rox) and Sylvie Laly Darr (Sylvie) faltered. "We took over just after midnight on March 1 and began serving breakfast at 7 a.m.

As word spread this week about the dreaded "Heartbleed" bug, consumers and Websites struggled to understand the implications and sort through some of the more apocalyptic pronouncements being made about the problem.  Consumers started to receive a trickle of notices from services they use online alerting them to potential issues and recommended steps, such as changing passwords. But given the scope of the issue, security experts projected that it could take years to sew up all the holes created by the Heartbleed bug. "This is one of the worst security issues we've seen in the last decade and will remain within the top 5 for many years to come," said Adam Ely, founder and chief operating officer of Bluebox Security.

WASHINGTON - Adam Crain assumed that tapping into the computer networks used by power companies to keep electricity zipping through transmission lines would be nearly impossible in these days of heightened vigilance over cybersecurity. When he discovered how wrong he was, his work sent Homeland Security Department officials into a scramble. Crain, the owner of a small tech firm in Raleigh, N.C., along with a research partner, found penetrating transmission systems used by dozens of utilities to be startlingly easy.

If it is true that state Sen. Leland Yee consorted with criminals and did them political favors in return for campaign cash, it is indeed "sickening," as Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg said. But this newest scandal, along with the indictment of Sen. Ronald S. Calderon on bribery and corruption charges in February, is merely an extreme example of the long-standing and pervasive pay-to-play culture that permeates the Capitol. Yee, a San Francisco Democrat, was swept up in an FBI sting targeting a gangster known as "Shrimp Boy" and faces federal charges related to public corruption and conspiracy to illegally import firearms.

Count me lucky to have a neighbor who keeps chickens and who brings me a carton of pretty pale blue or brown eggs with stand-up gold yolks whenever she comes to dinner. There's nothing that beats fresh eggs scrambled, sunny side up or gently coddled. After tasting the difference, it can be hard to go back to the regular eggs. Some restaurants, though, are cooking eggs with the attention and care they deserve and are garnering a fan base for their egg dishes. Migas at HomeState, A Texas Kitchen At the breakfast and lunch spot devoted to Tex-Mex cuisine, Austin native Briana Valdez serves up eggs in breakfast tortillas and in migas - eggs sort scrambled with crispy corn tortilla strips, onions and cheddar cheese.

Politicking at the California Democratic Party Convention by candidates competing for official endorsements continued Saturday morning after delegate-hunting at a round of parties the night before. Volunteers started with pep talks and breakfast at "boiler rooms" set up at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Los Angeles by Assembly Speaker John A. Perez and state Sen. Alex Padilla, who are running for state controller and secretary of state, respectively. With balloting for the party's endorsement scheduled for later in the day, time was running out as the two Los Angeles officeholders and their competitors rushed from one caucus to another, hoping to sway those who would be voting on whom the party should endorse.

Ventura St. Bonaventure, Westlake Village Oaks Christian, La Verne Damien and Glendora St. Lucy's have won their arbitration cases against the CIF Southern Section and will remain in their current sports areas for the upcoming re-leaguing cycle from 2014-18, according to the decision announced Friday by a retired judge. It will force the schools in the Northern Area, Mt. SAC and parochial areas to meet again and restart their re-leaguing process. Those areas already had created new leagues without the four schools.

Linebacker Derrick Thomas set an NFL record Sunday with seven sacks, but could only agonize over the one that got away. As time expired, Seattle's Dave Krieg wriggled free of Thomas and heaved a desperation 25-yard touchdown pass to Paul Skansi in the end zone. Norm Johnson kicked the extra point to give the Seahawks a 17-16 victory over Thomas and his stunned Kansas City Chiefs. "I'm glad they didn't call 'in the grasp,' " Krieg said with a smile. "He had his hands around my hips.

SOCHI, Russia - After taking a few practice runs down the halfpipe at the Sochi Olympics earlier this week, Hannah Teter had some concerns. To say the least. "I couldn't do any of my tricks," the American snowboarder said. "It was just the worst pipe I'd ever ridden in my life. " Then the crew at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park scrambled to make fixes, smoothing a lumpy bottom and using a mixture of salt and water to harden the walls. "A hundred million times better," Teter said before the women's final on Wednesday night.

Sheriff Lee Baca's surprise retirement prompted two parallel furors on Tuesday - among county leaders, who must quickly pick an interim replacement, and among potential candidates who are reassessing a field that was dramatically altered by the departure of the 15-year incumbent. Los Angeles County supervisors were preparing Tuesday afternoon to meet in private to begin discussions to pick an interim sheriff. Early support appeared to be building around Terri McDonald, a well-regarded assistant sheriff who was brought in from the state prison system to reform the county's troubled jails.
