This delightful oasis, a beloved destination for my wife when she was a young girl and our daughters when she was a young mother, is one of the few local walks that can be done at midday, no matter the season, entirely in the shade. Even in September, this Griffith Park canyon is a cool, quiet retreat. 1. Begin at the intersection of Los Feliz Boulevard and Fern Dell Drive, following the path that starts behind the statue of a bear cub. Walk into the canyon, under a canopy of oak, sycamore, pine and redwood, following the paved walkway, staying always to the right as the path branches off. 2. You'll find picnic tables, barbecue grills, drinking fountains and public restrooms as you climb gently into the canyon.

As the Angels prepared for the 2002 World Series, bench coach Joe Maddon looked at the spray charts and came to a radical conclusion: If the Angels wanted to align their defense based on where Barry Bonds most commonly hit the ball, they should play three infielders and four outfielders. The Angels ultimately decided not to play Bonds that way, although Manager Mike Scioscia said they were "a couple pitches away" from deploying the scheme in certain scenarios. In 2005, Maddon left to manage the Tampa Bay Rays, who have been at the forefront of baseball's shift toward unconventional fielding alignments.

I don't think too many people are aware that CBS has canceled "Evening Shade." I hope that all its fans will write CBS and protest the cancellation loud and long. If CBS doesn't bring it back, hopefully ABC or NBC will acquire it. It was one of the few quality shows left on TV. Fred Harris, Hemet

“Fifty Shades of Grey” became a phenomenon thanks in large part to its titillating content -- but at CinemaCon on Tuesday, Universal Studios was more focused on romance than raunch. Before introducing never-before-seen footage from the movie, directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson and starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, studio Chairman Donna Langley promised the crowd the pair “have the kind of chemistry that could turn this into the next iconic romance.” The event highlighted the difficult line Universal must walk between the material's more earnest romantic aspects and its more explicit hardcore scenes.

MOST VINES ARE house gobblers, tree consumers, fence wreckers. Turn your back on them and they are out of control. They have been known to completely cover windows, to grow into an attic, to rip off shingles. They can even smother a tree. Undoing their damage is hard and heavy work, extricating them from their victims is a painfully slow process--like untying a thousand knots in a child's shoelaces.

FORMER attorney Sharon Bowman and husband Joe Fineman, a post-production film producer, are in love with their alfresco room -- in particular, its new retractable ceiling. The 25-by-30-foot space, formerly the living room, came about when Culver City architect Lorcan O'Herlihy designed a 2,000-square-foot addition for the back of their ranch-style home in Brentwood. By relocating the bedrooms to the addition and reworking the 1960s floor plan into an open kitchen, dining and living area, O'Herlihy freed up the old living room for another use. "We decided it would be ideal as an outdoor room," the architect says.

On game days, Jim Lachey, a 6-foot 6-inch Charger offensive tackle, covers his face mask with a dark green plastic shade. He can see you, but you can't see him. Photographers gush. Fans point. It's absorbing. It's intimidating, It's positively science fiction . . . "It's for my contact lenses," Lachey says, shrugging. "Do you know, I once had four contact lenses scraped out of my eyes in three games? Players always stick their fingers in there. And you can't just leave the game when it happens.

The idea of orange makeup may conjure up images of circus clowns or overly tanned women sporting neon coral lipstick on a sweltering day. But this spring, orange and coral hues are looking fresh, modern and totally wearable. From highly pigmented poppy lip lacquer to sheer and lightly sparkled coral blush, orange and coral beauty products are everywhere. Bobbi Brown has a coral collection that includes numerous variations of the hue, from earthy to ultra-feminine sheer with a pink cast.

Springtime heralds a feast of color, the earth energized with blossoms of pink, yellow, violet, orange and myriad shades that burst forth to adorn the planet in prettiness — millions of little gifts for the senses wrapped as flowers adding up to an indulgence of happy color. Likewise, makeup this season takes a cue from Mother Nature, offering a garden of pretty shades for our pleasure. "This spring is all about bright pops of color in shades like coral, purple, pink, and aquamarine," says Bobbi Brown of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, who answered our questions while she was travelling in China on a recent trip.

The apartment building at 2602 Broadway in Santa Monica doesn't scream "affordable housing. " Rather, its proportions and details are more like that of the neighboring 1960s buildings, and that's because 2602 Broadway takes a cue from those iconic structures, architect Kevin Daly said. "What we've done is take the typical L.A. dingbat, which I would characterize as a four-sided doughnut of a building, and break it apart and move toward the extreme edge of the property," Daly said.

Easy and effortless looks ruled the red carpet at Sunday's Academy Awards. Maybe it was the rainy weather that had actresses abandoning a potentially runny smoky eye or sticky up-do shellacked with hair spray in favor of more subtle Oscar looks. Many actresses sported the sleek pixie cut that is so hot right now. Charlize Theron, Anne Hathaway, Kristin Chenoweth and Jennifer Lawrence led the chic short-hair brigade. Lupita Nyong'o topped her short hair off with the accessory of the evening - a delicate gold and diamond headband from Fred Leighton.

This week the erotic "Fifty Shades of Grey" trilogy reached a huge milestone: It sold more than 100 million copies worldwide. Forty-five million of those books were bought by readers in the U.S. The 100-million mark puts E.L. James' bestselling series on par with Ian Fleming's James Bond series. But the first Bond book, "Casino Royale," was published more than 50 years ago; "Fifty Shades of Grey" debuted in 2011. Originally self-published, "Fifty Shades of Grey" gained even wider reach after being picked up by Vintage, an imprint of Random House, in 2012.

"Fifty Shades of ... Ana!" Actress Dakota Johnson assumed the character of B&D plaything Anastasia Steele for Elle magazine's March issue. The "50 Shades of Grey" star poses for the cover and inside spread wearing all the trappings of a boudoir babe: thigh-high stockings, sexy heels and that smoldering come-hither stare. Johnson poses on the cover bedside -- on her knees -- in a demure John Galliano frock juxtaposed with the headline: "Meet Dakota Johnson, the star of '50 Shades of Grey.'" PHOTOS: Meet the '50 Shades of Grey' cast & crew The shoot, it turns out, is several shades tamer than what the starlet is willing to do for the highly anticipated film based on E.L. James' erotica trilogy.

When British singer Rita Ora took a break from the set of "Fifty Shades of Grey" to attend the Grammy Awards on Sunday, she shared her thoughts on the hotly anticipated film. She said the movie, adapted from E.L. James' bestselling erotic novel, will be an "amazing shock. " Even better than amazing, actually. The movie's release is "gonna be the biggest and most amazing shock ever," she told MTV , adding that she's "so excited" for it. Ora is playing Christian Grey's adopted sister Mia. Grey is the bondage-happy billionaire who sweeps innocent college student Anastasia Steele off her feet and into his bed (and a number of other places.)

Lorde's usual beauty look tends to teeter into goth territory and at Sunday's Grammy Awards she opted for a deep purple lip and shimmery translucent skin that was more dark fairy tale than vamp. Her makeup was done by MAC Cosmetics senior artist Amber Dreadon, who says she "wanted to keep the look fresh and radiant -- modern, a bit boyish and darkly cool with a focus on the lips. " To achieve Lorde's pretty-haunting look, Dreadon started with MAC Cosmetics Strobe Cream and Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 foundation over the singer's face.

Gray is the new black. Night, the new day. Rain, the new sun. Clouds gather, shadows linger. The Oscar-nominated cinematographers' images fill the screen with a beauty only possible in worlds gone monochromatic, turning the most elemental of color palettes stunningly rich, subtly vibrant. Incredible combinations of charcoal, smoke, gunmetal and slate. Philippe Le Sourd for "The Grandmaster," Emmanuel Lubezki for "Gravity," Bruno Delbonnel for "Inside Llewyn Davis," Phedon Papamichael for "Nebraska," Roger A. Deakins for "Prisoners" - veterans all. Men all. And though they each have the capacity to shoot softness and light, the varied universes captured through their lenses this year speak to the wonder of black.

Is Edward Snowden a whistle-blower or a traitor? Debate over the renegade computer technician who leaked thousands of secret National Security Agency documents is too often reduced to that deceptively simple choice. But it's the wrong way to pose the question, because Snowden is both of those things at the same time. Yes, he's a whistle-blower, and if that were all he had done, he would deserve our thanks for forcing a debate over the NSA's swollen powers. PHOTO ESSAY: What last year's biggest political blunders mean for 2014 But he's also a scoundrel who deserves prosecution and public condemnation.
