You won't believe how difficult it is to perform this one-sided chest strengthener on a roller. It may look easy to move one arm at a time, but try it -- you'll discover the core has to really work to hold your balance. 1. Hold a dumbbell in your right hand and lie down on a full-length, round roller with your head and hips supported on the roller (you can place a yoga block behind your head if necessary). Straighten your right leg out in front of you and rest your left arm alongside your body with your hand close to your hips.

Nine months after taking office, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani finds himself under pressure from both his reformist supporters and hard-line conservatives as efforts to spur political change and economic progress have stumbled. Rouhani has faced a backlash in recent weeks from the very base that helped get him elected, which now sees a lack of movement to bolster personal liberties or free political prisoners. Meanwhile, both reformists and hard-liners are increasingly frustrated over economic woes.

Peter S. Greenberg's story Jan. 5 about near-misses between aircraft was incredibly one-sided. Aren't all students of basic journalism taught that there are at least two sides to every issue? Greenberg presented the airspace congestion issue from the airlines' point of view only, while completely ignoring the military's side and passing off general aviation, by far the largest group of airspace users, as "Sunday fliers." I invite Greenberg to take the time to discover general aviation's side of the story.

Whether you think of it as HP Pavilion, the Shark Tank, its current corporate name, SAP Center, or "the cage" as Kings Coach Darryl Sutter colorfully offered, one thing is evident: The cage has become just that for the Kings in the playoffs, living quarters getting a little tight and the team possessing a championship pedigree unable to get out of town with a win. San Jose has recorded five straight victories at home in the playoffs against the...

Almost all of Coleman's articles are about how everybody treats blacks unfairly. Now even Joe Camel is racist. Why this one-sided view continues is beyond me. PAUL MIZE Gardena

Re "Playa Vista Views Shared," Dec. 13: Playa Vista's development is a great disappointment and lost opportunity in its uninspired, bland, slab-sided architecture. I expected more. Rick Dinon Crestline

While KFI's management might be excited about its new Limbaugh-Gates weekday lineup, its listeners will soon learn that one-sided political discourse does not make for "more stimulating talk radio." RON KOBAYASHI, Tustin

Here I am at Little Yosemite Valley Campground on June 17 making sure this invasive species' pack is 100% bear-proof. Hiker-boy Alan Vetter passed the test -- all the food's in that slick-sided black canister. As a kickback, he agreed to capture my feat on camera. So where's my Outdoors cap?

Re "FCC to Propose Easing Broadcast Ownership Rules," May 31: The news presented to the public will be more and more tailored and less and less impartial if TV stations and newspapers are allowed to have joint ownership in a given locale. As it is, more radio talk shows are very one-sided and the news they present is also one-sided and leaves out issues they do not want aired. The media are the dominant molders of public opinion now and should not be allowed to be concentrated into the hands of a few in the future.

Re Rick Du Brow's Nov. 10 column about the protest against Turner Broadcasting System's Dec. 7 documentary, "Abortion Denied: Shattering Young Women's Lives": The tirade by Nellie Gray of the March for Life and Rep. Robert Dornan against Ted Turner's TBS channel station for not having a panel discussion after the program is typical of the moral and intellectual dishonesty of the fundamentalist/far-right movement. Arguing that Turner is guilty of being one-sided, they conveniently overlook how one-sided their own beloved Trinity Broadcasting Network is. TBN broadcasts 24-hour-a-day, mind-numbing propaganda that exhorts viewers to wage Christian warfare against society.

DONETSK, Ukraine - Ukrainian government troops on Wednesday claimed to have swept out pro-Russia gunmen from a town in embattled eastern Ukraine, an operation the Kremlin warned could spark retaliation. The Ukrainian Interior Ministry statement that Svyatogorsk was under government control was dismissed as "a propaganda lie" by a leader of insurgents holding nearby Slovyansk, scene of the most violent and destabilizing clashes of the separatist movement that has been gaining momentum since Russia's annexation of Crimea last month.

Resoundingly and emphatically, the Clippers responded to the challenge presented to them in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series by winning in historic fashion Monday night at Staples Center. Blake Griffin answered the call with a playoff career-high 35 points. And Doc Rivers coached his team with a purpose while mixing it up with one of his former players. Griffin's 35-point night, in just three quarters of play, was the impetus behind the Clippers' 138-98 rout of the Golden State Warriors.

The six brothers and sisters, with a gap of 31 years from eldest to youngest, gathered in the winter near the first anniversary of their father's death to discuss some problems about the family business. It's also the city's treasured sports team - the Lakers. The team was nose-diving in the standings, losing the interest of fans, and grinding toward its worst season since the team moved to Los Angeles in 1960. So Jeanie Buss posed an elementary question to her siblings: What was going on with the Lakers?

NASA's LADEE mission ended with a bang when the spacecraft crashed into the lunar surface Thursday. The Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer smashed into the dark side of the moon between 9:30 and 10:22 p.m., according to NASA officials. The vending-machine-sized spacecraft ran out of fuel and collided with the moon at a speed of roughly 3,600 miles per hour -- or “about three times the speed of a high-powered rifle bullet,” Rick Elphic, LADEE project scientist at NASA Ames Research Center said in a statement.

WASHINGTON - A federal appeals court Tuesday upheld the Environmental Protection Agency's first-ever limits on air toxics, including emissions of mercury, arsenic and acid gases, preserving a far-reaching rule the White House had touted as central to President Obama's environmental agenda. In a 2-1 decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit found that the rule regulating power plants "was substantively and procedurally valid," turning aside challenges brought by Republican-led states that had argued it was onerous and environmental groups that had contended it did not go far enough.

Plastic surgeons at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston have successfully reattached four amputated fingers to a man's left hand, hospital officials said. Mark Mulvey, 23, of Brockton, Mass., lost his fingers May 3 in a table saw accident. On May 4, nine surgeons spent 18 hours in the operating room, using a two-sided operating microscope to rejoin blood vessels. Officials said they waited to release information about the operation to make sure the procedure succeeded.

Re "It was genocide," editorial, March 22 Your unambiguous restatement of the historical fact of the Armenian genocide was a resounding slap of truth on the shamefully pandering face of official complicity. At a time when the value and role of newspapers in the digital age is under debate, The Times has shown us with clarity and courage that integrity remains the defining essence of journalism. JOHN SHAHABIAN Sacramento It's astonishing that Turks point to treason, as many Armenians sided with Russia at the outbreak of World War I while Turkey sided with Germany.

Re "Not a conservative pick," April 11 Steven Colbert is a super-smart comic actor. "Steven Colbert" is a character on TV. Neither would currently be famous without the other. Once one is gone, will the other be worth watching on the "Late Show"? Apparently Colbert and CBS are willing to bet his career on that question.

There was a huge, heaving mass of Coachella fans listening to time-shifting, hard-riffing music with an apocalyptic sci-fi bent last night. But they weren't watching the headliner Muse. While a trickle of committed fans progged out with the English hard rock trio, all the action was deep in the Sahara tent last night, where the 26-year-old Sonny Moore led a beyond-capacity crowd in a reverie of the restless, insistent party music he makes as Skrillex. The producer is one of the kingpins of the American EDM wave, riding a tide of harsh bass music to the headliner slot of almost ever major electronic music fest in the U.S. But after the surprise release of his new album "Recess," which touches on deep reggae, K-pop and a thousand other influences, his Coachella set cemented just how much bigger his project is. PHOTOS: Coachella Day 1 | Day 2 Moore took the stage in an update of his spaceship stage motif, where he appears to be performing in the cockpit of some junked "Star Wars" fighter plane.
