An Algerian expelled from France hijacked an Air France jetliner carrying more than 100 people Wednesday by threatening to blow up the plane, but he surrendered peacefully, and his "bomb" turned out to be a bar of soap and a can of shaving cream. Said Djamel, a 30-year-old merchant, gave up soon after the A-300 Airbus landed at Algiers airport, its original destination, at 2:20 p.m. The 115 passengers and crew disembarked unharmed.

Even the ubiquitous James Franco should have known better than to star in "Maladies," a pretentious head-scratcher involving would-be artistic expression, mental illness and shaving cream (don't ask). Franco brings a bit of his trademark charisma to the muddled role of an unstable soap-opera-actor-turned-novelist, also named James, who finds himself in a Long Island beach house living "an artistic life" with his moody, cross-dressing painter friend (Catherine Keener) and his disturbed sister (Fallon Goodson)

Just in time for the beach season, there is a new spray-on shaving solution that promises to leave skin not just smooth, but free of rashes and nicks as well. Hydroglide, which sells for about $7 per can at several local beauty supply stores, was developed by Houston dermatologist Dr. Milton D. Moore. Its active ingredient is propylene glycol, said a company spokesman. Is it worth the price? "Propylene glycol is nothing magical," said Dr. Rhonda Rand, a Beverly Hills dermatologist.

Stacy Keach's dance card is quite full these days. "I have done four sitcoms in five weeks!" said the 72-year-old actor, who first demonstrated his comedic chops as Cheech and Chong's nemesis Sgt. Stedenko in the 1978 stoner comedy "Up in Smoke. " Just last week, he appeared in the L.A. Theatre Works production of Chekhov's "Uncle Vanya" at UCLA, and on Sunday he'll be narrating Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart" at the "EEK! At the Greek" Halloween concert with the Symphony in the Glen Orchestra.

Once upon a time, Bullwinkle was everybody's favorite moose. Then came chocolate mousse. Mousse for your hair is still popular, but mousse for your skin is the latest thing--and that includes mousse makeup foundation, mousse blush, mousse sun screen, and--yes, it's true--mousse perfume. Why all this muss about mousse? Well, as one young woman says of the mousse foundation and blush: "It's very light, so much lighter than other makeup. And it's easy to blend."

Jack Hartman has red hair, is left-handed and acts with the coolness of a surfer dude - even though he doesn't surf. Baseball is his sport, and Friday in a City Section Division I quarterfinal game, Hartman accomplished something he hasn't done since he started playing - throw a no-hitter. The Reseda Cleveland pitcher struck out 11 and walked three in a 5-0 victory over San Pedro that sends the Cavaliers into a Wednesday semifinal against Marshall at 3 p.m. at USC. Marshall defeated University, 4-0, behind pitcher Andre Burciaga.

JUST AS A beard is the most obvious symbol of the difference between a man and a boy, so is a well-groomed beard the clearest distinction between a civilized man and a barbarian. And yet, despite thousands of years of practice, even the most refined men still have trouble maintaining a smart-looking beard. Unlike the ancients, whose grooming aids were limited to primitive tools such as bronze knives and red-hot iron plates, modern man now possesses a host of high-tech beard-trimming devices.

I've noticed of late that companies that traditionally sell women's skin-care products -- such as Aveeno, Neutrogena and Nivea -- are offering shaving creams and gels, competing with familiar brands including Barbasol and Edge. These products tend to be more expensive than the old standbys, but their labels also promise greater skin protection, claiming to reduce or prevent razor bumps and irritation, as well as nicks and cuts. These claims caught my eye.

Ozzie Smith puts shaving cream on his glove, but not on his face. That may explain why he's got whiskers and his glove doesn't, but what does it actually tell us about this man, Osborne Earl Smith? We must realize that Ozzie's glove is so important to him that it is vital to keep the leather soft by rubbing shaving cream, leather balm and aloe lotion into the pocket. This glove, after all, has made Ozzie a very rich man. He treats it right. The shortstop of the St.

An old coach named Fred "The Fog" Shero once described the relationship between Canadians and their national pastime this way: "Hockey is where we live. … Life is just a place where we spend time between games. " It could feel like that in Southern California over the next few weeks. This is hockey's time to shine with two local teams in the hunt for the Stanley Cup, the Kings fighting to repeat as champions and the Ducks riding one of the better records in the league. The way things have gone for the Lakers and Clippers, and with our baseball teams struggling, the sport from up north could win some new fans.

As the facial-hair-focused month of Movember draws to a close, we thought we'd revisit some of the beard- and mustache-themed merchandise that's come to our attention, including bacon-scented shaving cream, a stainless steel, mustache-shaped bottle opener and a book cataloging the cultural history of the 'stache. The most recent to cross our desk is J&D's Foods' Bacon Shaving Cream, touted as "the highest quality meat-scented shaving cream on the market today. " Justin Esch, a co-founder and "bacontrepreneur" at Seattle-based J&D's (the company, which launched in 2007, is responsible for a slew of bacon-flavored products such as Baconnaise and a bacon-flavored popcorn called BaconPOP)

Christmas comes simply for mariners visiting Port Everglades: not with big parties or pageants or liturgies, but with a gift-wrapped shoe box stocked with soap, shaving cream, work gloves and other basics from a ministry known as Seafarers' House. The ministry's Shoebox Christmas is in its fourth year. Volunteers have been handing out the brightly wrapped boxes since late November to two or three ships a day, seven days a week. "It's nice to get gifts; it makes us happy," Cesar Ladesma of the Philippines said as students from a South Florida school brought gifts to his cargo ship.

Florida Marlins left fielder Chris Coghlan had surgery on his left knee Wednesday and is beginning rehabilitation after he was hurt during a victory celebration. The reigning National League rookie of the year had surgery on a torn meniscus; the procedure was performed by medical director Dr. Lee Kaplan in Miami. Coghlan is scheduled to begin rehab immediately. Edwin Rodriguez , the Marlins' interim manager, said the team hoped Coghlan would respond well enough to play late this season, but he wasn't counting on it. Coghlan hurt himself July 25 delivering a celebratory shaving cream pie to the face of teammate Wes Helms after a game-winning hit against Atlanta.

It's a myth that men don't shop. If the Y chromosome didn't open his wallet on a regular basis, there would be no Home Depot, no beer commercials featuring Swedish twins and no merchandise counter at Hooters. But buy a magazine that helps him become a better shopper? That's another matter altogether.
