Inventor Elon Musk's concept for the Hyperloop - a mass-transit system that would move people from Los Angeles to San Francisco in 30 minutes - has captured the imagination of residents in a city known for horrible traffic. As The Times' Catherine Green, W.J. Hennigan and Ralph Vartabedian explained Tuesday morning: "Musk unveiled the design of his Hyperloop, a $6-billion high-speed transit system powered by solar energy. The line would travel along interstates 5 and 580 at speeds of up to 760 miles per hour and have the feel of an airliner, Musk said.

While the EMUs of Eastern Michigan (0-9) remained No. 1, the Bottom Ten gave a career lack-of-achievement award to No. 20 Notre Dame. USA Today pointed out that over the last 16 years, the Fitful Irish are 1-9 in bowl games, 7-25 against teams in the top 10, and 22-40-1 against ranked opponents -- true Bottom Ten-type numbers. Notre Dame's latest setback came against Navy, a team that had thrown 28 passes in six previous games -- none against Wake Forest. So what happened?

Don't tell Steve Harvey you're tired. The 55-year-old comedian rises early to spend four hours talking as radio host of "The Steve Harvey Morning Show. "  On some days, he must cope with the daft answers provided by folks while serving as ring leader of "Family Feud. "  This fall, one of the original "Kings of Comedy" is adding more hours to his workday as host of a daytime talk show. "Steve Harvey," which premieres Tuesday, is modeled after two of his books ("Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man" and "Straight Talk, No Chaser: How to Find and Keep a Man")

In publishing, landing a spot on the "Today" show has traditionally been thought of as a publicity holy grail. Is that why Benjamin Percy wore a pregnancy suit to get there? And did he have any idea just how strange the experience would be? Not wearing the pregnancy suit for nine weeks -- trying to talk to Steve Harvey. Harvey gets so discombobulated that, apropos of nothing, he asks Percy if he's ever bitten a man. Percy does have one of the most arresting voices in contemporary American letters.

I never thought I'd tune in to a morning show radio personality for advice on my love life. However, recently I have found the words "Steve said" regularly flowing from my lips. KKBT-FM's (100.3) Steve Harvey has me thinking about how I approach dating. Essentially, he said to his female listeners, "Y'all set yourselves up wrong." Steve Harvey followed up by saying that emotion clouds women's good judgment. Men, he said, are masters of deception. "Men are hunters. They know what to trap with."

Two readers with inquiring minds, Harry Bradley and Robert Jeffers, phoned separately to ask why, in these energy-conscious times, the Department of Water and Power building downtown is lit up like a Christmas tree at night. 'Cause . . . it's party time! The DWP is throwing a birthday bash for itself. Spokesman Ed Freudenburg explained that the lights-are-on-but-nobody's-home arrangement is in effect between dusk and 11 p.m.

What kind of guy is this Steve Harvey that gets his jollies poking fun at losers in the Bottom Ten? Or for that matter, what kind of a sports editor would pay him to write it? Has it not occurred to you that many of those colleges that you ridicule every week are among the few left that use amateurs on their teams, amateurs who are also required to be scholars, and who bust their butts every week doing the best they can? Incidentally, I am not alone in my opinion. If you care what most sports fans think, why don't you poll them?

Each week, scores of talented and not-so-talented singers, musicians and other performers flock to stages around Hollywood hoping to be discovered at open mike and talent showcases. By day, they are students, barbers, computer programmers, receptionists, teachers, or bus drivers. Some have been hopping around these circuits for years, while others are taking their first shot before a live audience.

“Anderson Live,” the daytime talker from CNN news personality Anderson Cooper, won't be getting a third season from Telepictures, the syndicated division of Warner Bros. Warner Bros. executives starting telling stations on Friday of the decision not to renew the series. Cooper joined the daytime fray in 2011, with then-titled “Anderson.” After the show failed to generate solid numbers, a number of changes took place to usher in the second season: a new show title, a live format, a studio audience, revolving guest co-hosts and a new location for the studio.

The Great Daytime Talk Show War of 2012 is only a day old, but so far Katie Couric is in the lead.  In preliminary ratings, Monday's premiere of “Katie,” in which the “Today” veteran and former “CBS Evening News” anchor gabbed with Jessica Simpson and Sheryl Crow, drew an estimated 1.535-million viewers from the top 56 U.S. markets (overall viewership numbers, drawn from the country as a whole, are expected to be considerably higher)....

Daytime talk definitely isn't cheap this fall. A year after Oprah Winfrey left as daytime's queen to launch her own cable network, the afternoon kingdom is still in search of a successor. Winfrey closed out the last season of her 25-year term averaging about 6 million viewers, hardly her best but still a level over and above the current crop of talk shows. The "after Oprah" world is still in its infancy, and several new (and familiar) faces will vie for rule this fall: "Survivor" host Jeff Probst, talk show veteran Ricki Lake and TV journalist Katie Couric all roll out syndicated talk shows Monday.

Cable news anchors yell at guests all the time. Guys like Bill O'Reilly, Chris Matthews and Lawrence O'Donnell lose their cool on a regular basis. But there's something about the clip of MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry yelling at guest financial expert Monica Mehta on a program on Saturday that's touching a nerve with viewers. The context was a panel discussion touched off by the book "Why Americans Hate Welfare" by Princeton professor Martin Gilens. In the book, Gilens asserts that the public distaste for welfare is a direct offshoot of the 20-year-old efforts of the media to link welfare to black people.

After six years, school is finally out for Steve Harvey. And he couldn't feel prouder. "I'm walking away on my own terms," the actor-comedian said last week, before Sunday's final episode of "The Steve Harvey Show," the WB network comedy set at an inner-city high school. "We lasted six years, we're doing well in syndication and I know this is the best half-hour [series] that the WB has ever had."

The "Beat" is the one to beat--at least in the mornings. Arbitron ratings released Monday for the winter quarter showed comic Steve Harvey and his morning show on KKBT-FM (100.3) jumping to No. 2 among all stations in the Los Angeles-Orange County radio market, and to the top spot among English-language competitors during the critical morning drive time of 6-10 a.m. weekdays. Barely six months into Harvey's stint at the station, he has more than doubled the ratings of a year ago, with a 4.

Moe, Larry and Curly couldn't do it. Neither could Snow White, an army of Greek gods or a baby-faced Leonardo DiCaprio. After four weeks, the film finally able to dethrone "The Hunger Games" at the box office was "Think Like a Man," an ensemble relationship comedy about five ethnically diverse couples. The movie's success surprised many in Hollywood over the weekend, because the picture came in more than $10 million ahead of industry projections with what distributor Sony Pictures estimated to be a $33-million debut.
