AUGUSTA, Ga. - The last time Phil Mickelson missed a cut at the Masters, he was 26, sputtering out of the 1997 tournament as Tiger Woods was lapping the field. But after stumbling to a 36-hole total of five over par, Mickelson missed this year's cut by a stroke, done in by two triple bogeys - at No. 7 on Thursday and No. 12 on Friday. Coming into the week, Mickelson had never made a triple at the 12th and had twice as many birdies there (16) as double bogeys. But a weak tee shot Friday put him in the front bunker, and a three-shot beach party began.

Sergio Martinez is the World Boxing Council middleweight champion, and with the exception of some sanctioning-body shenanigans, has owned the belt since 2010. The 39-year-old Argentinian is 51-2-2 and has beaten the likes of Kelly Pavlik at his peak, Paul Williams when he was called boxing's most feared fighter and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. He deserves respect. But that's not what Miguel Cotto is giving him in anticipation of their June 7 HBO pay-per-view fight at Madison Square Garden.

GIGLIO, Italy - Twenty months after it capsized off the Italian coast in a disaster that killed 32 people, the Costa Concordia cruise ship emerged from the Mediterranean on Monday thanks to a painstaking $800-million salvage effort. Fifty-six giant pulleys slowly heaved the half-submerged vessel back to an upright position in a 19-hour operation that went into the early hours of Tuesday, revealing a section of hull darkened by rust and algae during months underwater. "The rotation has finished its course, we are at zero degrees, the ship is resting on the platforms," said Italy's civil protection chief, Franco Gabrielli, at a 4 a.m. news conference on Giglio island, where he was applauded and cheered by residents.

Malls composed of factory outlet stores hit the East Coast in the '70s, and grew rapidly until now there are 270 nationwide. But it has taken a while for this concept to make its way to Southern California. Fear of being too near major retailers in metropolitan areas has kept these malls in outlying areas. San Ysidro, Monterey, Gilroy and Vacaville have outlet malls and one is opening this summer in Cabazon.

POP MUSIC In the annals of Brazil's tropicalia music, there is Sergio Mendes, and there are Sergio Mendes acolytes. His rhythmically tricky, melodically rich compositions defined the genre in his home country yet also proved a fertile base for pop and jazz crossovers. Here he plays with the similarly cosmopolitan, tropics-infused Morcheeba. Hollywood Bowl, 2031 N. Highland Ave., L.A. 8:30 p.m. Fri.-Sat. $30-$156. http://www.hollywoodbowl.com

Marginalia ? the notes and doodles scribbled in the white space of printed material ? is usually an afterthought, but for Sergio Aragones, it's an art. The prolific illustrator has long filled the margins (and pages and covers) of Mad magazine with keen cartoons that have helped define the publication's irreverent sense of humor. Aragones' work has been collected in the new book "Mad's Greatest Artists: Sergio Aragones," which he will sign and discuss. Book Soup, 8818 W. Sunset Blvd.

A jury has awarded a Los Angeles police officer $260,000 after finding that Pomona police used excessive force on the young cop and unlawfully arrested him. The verdict reached Wednesday evening was a final step in a nearly two-year effort by Sergio Arreola to clear his name after the 2012 encounter that left him fired from the LAPD and facing a possible prison sentence. "This was about showing the officers and showing Pomona that they can't be treating others the way they treated me," Arreola, 27, said.

SAN FRANCISCO - A Mexican immigrant without a green card on Thursday won the right to practice law in California, an unprecedented ruling that will permit others in similar circumstances to become lawyers. The state Supreme Court agreed unanimously that Sergio C. Garcia - who passed the bar examination four years ago - should receive a law license while awaiting federal approval of his green card application. The court, which has the final word on licensing lawyers, said it was able to approve Garcia's admission to the State Bar because the Legislature had passed a law last year that cleared the way. "The fact that an undocumented immigrant's presence in this country violates federal statutes is not itself a sufficient or persuasive basis for denying undocumented immigrants, as a class, admission to the State Bar," Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye wrote for the court.

Yuri Dubinin Perestroika-era Soviet ambassador to U.S. Yuri Dubinin, 83, the Soviet Union's ambassador to the United States during much of the turbulent 1980s' perestroika period, died Friday. The Russian Foreign Ministry announced his death in Moscow but did not give the cause. Dubinin became ambassador to the U.S. in 1986 after serving a short stint as the Soviet envoy to the United Nations. He stayed in that post until becoming ambassador to France in 1990. After the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union, Dubinin was a Russian deputy foreign minister from 1994 to 1996.

A chance to claim a fourth different weight-class world title on the weekend of the Puerto Rican Day Parade on June 7 in New York City against middleweight champion Sergio Martinez is that option.

It's not often today that a rising DJ team argues that it should get out of its own spotlight. But that's precisely what the D.C. dance duo of Benoit & Sergio do on their loungey new single, “Adjustments.” Atop some melancholy, tropical production that sounds like a vacation winding down, the duo claim that today's wave of pyro-shooting superstars has it all wrong: “Sometimes I think that DJs don't understand / that we've been waiting around...

The San Francisco Giants' Sergio Romo is probably best known for throwing the final pitch that helped the Giants win the 2012 World Series. But the Giants' closer is also earning a reputation for his political activism. At the team's victory parade, Romo sported a blue T-shirt that read “I just look illegal ” -- a cheeky comment on how the debate over immigration reform is all too often reduced to ethnic stereotypes. Now, Romo is reported to be joining forces with the Three Twins Ice Cream company to develop Sergio Romo's Mexican Chocolate.

Italian director Sergio Leone's 1968 western classic "Once Upon a Time in the West," like so many films stashed away in storerooms for decades, has not aged well. The common signs: scratches, fading colors and a generalized reddish hue. But by next fall, the film -- starring Henry Fonda and Claudia Cardinale -- will be restored to its desert blazing glory and ready to be shown at the second Rome Film Festival.

Sergio C. Garcia was brought to the United States illegally by his parents when he was a minor. Since then, he has earned a college degree and worked his way through law school. He's met all the requirements necessary to become a lawyer, passing the bar exam and receiving a positive moral character determination from the Committee of Bar Examiners. The only thing Garcia lacks is a law license. The State Bar of California, which normally determines who should receive a law license, has recommended he be given one, and Atty.

Sergio C. Garcia, the 36-year-old Chico man whose struggle to earn a license to practice law was the subject of a California Supreme Court hearing this week is not just an aspiring attorney. He is also a motivational speaker. “I know,” he said by phone on Thursday. “You're thinking, 'Frankly, your life sucks, so what are you telling people about?'” It's true, his story is kind of a bummer right now: His parents brought him to the U.S. from Mexico as a baby, then returned to Mexico when he was 9. When Garcia was 17, he crossed the border illegally back into California, and has been here ever since . He graduated from high school, attended Chico State and graduated from Cal Northern School of Law in 2009.
