California Gov. Jerry Brown's prison policy is forcing a split personality with federal courts. Brown on Tuesday repeated his insistence he will take no move to further reduce prison crowding unless ordered (again) to do so, and he included no money for prison leases and other proposals in his 2013-14 state budget. At the same time, Brown's administration officials told a panel of federal judges Wednesday the governor is working behind the scenes on that very legislation. "Defendants are drafting legislative language for these measures, which will delineate potential changes to state law to: (1)

Few cable companies have been as vocal about the rising costs of sports programming as Time Warner Cable. "What was a minor problem is turning into an astronomical problem," Time Warner Cable chief executive Glenn Britt told the Wall Street Journal just over a year ago. "The ultimate solution is to get that programming on some sort of smaller packaging scheme. " But Britt's words don't match up with Time Warner Cable's actions. As of late, few cable companies have been as instrumental in driving up sports costs as Time Warner Cable.

It's not surprising that the good folks at NBC decided to give a modernized Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde serial a go. Having made their way through vampires, zombies, werewolves and the occasional ghost/T. rex/space invader, network execs and television writers are banging up against the back wall of the monster cupboard these days, and Robert Louis Stevenson's "case study" of a physician who fatally attempts to isolate the good and bad portions of his personality remains a classic, regularly reprised in a variety of ways.

It's a change of gears--and noses--for soap opera star Lane Davies ("Santa Barbara's" bad boy Mason Capwell), who's donned a foam latex proboscis to play the title role in Edmond Rostand's "Cyrano de Bergerac" at the Globe Playhouse in West Hollywood. "You don't get any better at the good parts by just talking about them or studying them," says the Georgia-born actor. "You have to do them on a stage, in front of people."

UCLA may have a shot at stopping Stanford running back Stepfan Taylor in the Pac-12 Conference title game Friday. But Kulabafi, that hip guy with the dark glasses and leopard print sweater, could be a handful. Taylor, you see, can come at you out of multiple offensive sets - and with multiple personalities. There is the running back with tree-trunk legs who is 36 yards from setting Stanford's career rushing record. He is a soft-spoken Texan, a senior who is majoring in science, technology and society.

It's Wednesday afternoon, and the many L.A. bartenders, bar owners, spirits enthusiasts, bloggers and brand ambassadors who converged on New Orleans last week for the five-day 10th anniversary of Tales of the Cocktail are still talking about how they just can't get used to real life again. That's not hard to believe considering the festival -- the largest of its kind in the world -- is a veritable Pleasure Island for the booze hound. A carnival of blunted senses, Tales pivots around the all-important pillars of partying and education.

An ex-convict who said he has a "split personality" was sentenced to a maximum term of 42 years in prison for two rapes that left one woman critically burned and another severely scarred. Los Angeles County Superior Court Commissioner Sherman Juster cited the "sheer horror" of the crimes in sentencing James Robert Scott, 23, of Palmdale, who pleaded guilty to attempted murder and rape in an attack on a Palmdale woman whose bed he set afire.

Henry Johnson, the guitarist who came to prominence in the Joe Williams backup group, was presented Thursday as part of the live action in the JazzTimes Convention at the Sheraton-Universal Hotel. Like many jazz artists today who are attempting to straddle the line between the pure and the popular, Johnson displays a split personality.

At the premiere of his new comedy "Me, Myself & Irene" at the Mann Village in Westwood on Thursday evening, Jim Carrey did something that big-time movie stars hardly ever do. He showed up early. Like, an hour early. And then he cavorted with the hundreds of fans who had won bleacher seats from radio station KROQ-FM (106.7). (Kevin & Bean, the KROQ morning team, broadcast live from the red carpet.

PALO ALTO -- It's sunny, yet hardly dry, at Stanford Stadium this afternoon. The tarp was rolled off the field early to take advantage of the sun. However, more rain is expected at 5 p.m., when UCLA and Stanford kick off in the Pac-12 Conference championship game, according to accuweather.com. Rain, hard at times, is predicted to go from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., then start again at 9 p.m. Stanford's field is said not to drain well. Wet conditions would seem to give Stanford the edge.

"The Babymakers" starts out as an agreeable, playfully off-color comedy of contemporary domestic manners and loses course to become a slack, tacky slapstick. After months of trying to get his wife Audrey (Olivia Munn) pregnant, Tommy Macklin (Paul Schneider) is told by a doctor that his sperm are "confused. " While reeling from this blow to his masculine identity, he hatches a plan to steal back a batch of semen he had donated to a fertility clinic years before. On their own, just talking at dinner or alone in bed, Schneider and Munn are a winning pair, her high-energy type-A vibe playing well off his low-key delayed responses.

Read about my story on Hitachiya , the Japanese cookware store in Torrance in the Saturday section. Here's one of the items that escaped our cameras there. Can't guess what it is? A sesame seed roaster. As owner Hirota Masazumi explained to me, you add the sesame seeds at the top, place the ceramic roaster on a burner and shake gently to move the seeds around. Once the sesame seeds are roasted, pour them out the spout. It's $32 at Hitachiya .

The messy divorce of NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon and his wife Brooke, whose lawyers tried to subpoena several car owners at Daytona International Speedway last week, prompted this observation from Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel: "Around the track, Brooke isn't looked upon as a beauty queen anymore; she's portrayed as the ice princess. The former Miss Winston is now about as welcome around here as a nicotine patch.

Each November, Washington state's split personality erupts in a ritual of cross-state football rivalry called the Apple Cup. The contest pits the Seattle-based University of Washington against Washington State University, a land-grant school in Eastern Washington. But it's not just a ballgame. It's also a battle of east vs. west, rural vs. urban--a microcosm of a state firmly divided by the craggy Cascade Range.

"You gotta get a gimmick," Stephen Sondheim advised struggling starlets in the deliriously crackpot number he wrote with Jule Styne for "Gypsy" that had one veteran stripper breaking out a trumpet. The song parodies its point, but the branding wisdom it offers entertainers is as relevant today as it was a half century ago. Hugh Jackman, currently appearing in "Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway" at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York, has no problem separating himself from the pack. How many other movie star pinups are also giddy song-and-dance men?

Will the real Angels please stand up? Are they the ones who won a baseball-best 27 of 40 games since June 13? Or are they the Angels who are five games under .500 the rest of the season? Are they the Angels who scored 12 runs in their series opener in Detroit — the most they've scored in a game since mid-April? Or are they the Angels who were lucky to score twice in Friday's 12-2 loss to Detroit — the seventh time they've scored fewer than three runs in 15 games since the All-Star break?
