If there's a brawl between Silicon Valley and Hollywood to be California's marquee industry, it looks like the geeks have come out on top. More than 65% of those surveyed in the latest USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll said the technology industry was more important to the state's economy than entertainment, perhaps showing that SoCal's famous vixens and heartthrobs are losing the battle for screen time to NorCal's search engines and social networks....

- At the village market, my friend Pepa buys a couple of small white fish, a handful of clams, a few shrimp. I ask what she's preparing. " Una sopa marinera, de pescado ," she replies. A fish soup. Nothing fancy, no complications, just a simple home-style fish soup, ready in minutes. In Spanish, " marinera " has nothing to do with tomato sauce - it means mariner's style, fishermen's fare. These seafood soups are traditional aboard fishing boats or in fishermen's homes, where the remains of the day's catch find their way into the soup pot. From the village where Pepa and I shop, we look down to the Mediterranean coast, where a fishing port receives fresh seafood daily.

There's an imaginary border that crosses through the South of France and northern Italy, angling through Greece and Turkey toward the Middle East. Call it the olive oil line — to the north, the cuisines are flavored with butter and other oils; to the south, the warm Mediterranean flavors of olive oil predominate. Another culinary border follows it almost exactly: the Great Garbanzo Divide. Also known as the chickpea, the garbanzo is a round, golden legume known in the Old World eons before true beans found their way from the New World.

The Obama administration signaled Saturday it does not support aspects of pending anti-piracy legislation, a setback for the Motion Picture Assn. of America, Hollywood's chief lobbying arm. The measures - which have deeply divided the entertainment and technology industries - would give the Justice Department more tools to shut down foreign websites involved in theft of movies and TV shows. Major Hollywood studios and unions have been mounting a campaign in support of the bills to combat online piracy, which costs the industry billions annually.

A study released by the Motion Picture Assn. of America is taking aim at Google, alleging the Internet giant and other search engines are making it too easy for consumers to find pirated content online -- even when they're not looking for it. A study released Wednesday by the MPAA, the trade group representing the major Hollywood studios, concludes that search is a major gateway to the initial discovery of pirated movies and TV shows. The survey found that 74% of consumers surveyed cited using a search engine as a navigational tool the first time they arrived at a site with infringing content, even when the consumer was not looking for pirated movies or TV shows.

How about switching from zucchini, beets and basil to a garden bursting with Aztec red corn, huautzontli, quelites, Mexican peppers and herbs like papaloquelite and epazote?

And she offers much more.

When Google messes with its homepage, it usually adds a Google doodle . But on Tuesday that space was reserved for an ad. The tech giant used its homepage, one of the most visited places on the Web, to promote its own product -- the Nexus 7 tablet. On Google.com, an animation starts to play below the search box. A line appears and expands in the white space toward the bottom and out pops the Nexus 7, bumping the text above it. If you click on the Nexus 7 you're directed to the Google Play page for the 8-gigabyte model of the the company's tablet.
