When I was pregnant the second time, I found myself wearing wristbands nonstop that looked like they were meant for athletes but actually were to fend off morning (try all day long) sickness. They were functional but not too attractive. Psi Bands (pronounced "sigh" and referring to pounds per square inch) are acupressure wristbands that bring a little style to nausea relief for people who can't or don't want to take medications. They were designed by two moms and look rather like an inexpensive watch; the pressure applied to the wrists is adjustable.

The globalization of food could really be called the "Los Angeles-ization" of food, according to a Sunday panel at the Festival of Books called "Are We What We Eat?: The Culture of Food. " Led by L.A. Times food critic Jonathan Gold, the panel, which included OC Weekly editor Gustavo Arellano and New Yorker staff writer Dana Goodyear, agreed that though it is often unrecognized, the culture of Los Angeles has for decades been leading the way in making foreign foods mainstream and broadening diners' horizons.

The goofy, absurd horror-comedy "Bad Milo!" is a cult classic in the making. Its lo-fi charms - the cutesy-scary monster design, earnest family values and Danny Elfman-esque soundtrack - make the film feel like an '80s throwback in a way that justifies the nostalgia. But enjoyment of the film will depend on one's delight in endless jokes about one man's behind. In an early scene, married couple Duncan (Ken Marino) and Sara (Gillian Jacobs) stare intensely at an ultrasound screen, impatient for the news that'll change their lives.

The Clippers are starting to become whole again. The team has been short-handed for weeks in the backcourt, but guards Jamal Crawford, Darren Collison and even J.J. Redick practiced with the Clippers on Thursday. After practice, the Clippers said Collison and Crawford will both play Saturday when they face the Detroit Pistons at Staples Center, but Redick is still not close to returning. Collison missed the last two games with a stomach virus. Crawford, who has been out for five consecutive games and eight of the last nine with a strained left calf, will practice again Friday, giving him another day to get ready.

The single-celled microorganisms known as probiotics are natural inhabitants of the human digestive system. These hundreds of species of bacteria and yeast play a variety of beneficial roles in the body, including synthesizing vitamins and keeping harmful bacteria in check. The medical use of probiotics -- in the form of cultured or fermented dairy products such as yogurt or kefir -- dates to biblical times. But only about 100 years ago were bacteria identified as the healthful components.

Was DJ AM's death suicide? The jet-set mash-up disc jockey had prescription pills in his stomach and one in his throat when authorities found him dead in his SoHo apartment on Friday, an unnamed New York City official told the Associated Press. The official said there were six pills in DJ AM's stomach and the one lodged in his throat that appeared to be the powerful painkiller OxyContin. The official didn't know what dosage of the pills and was not certain what kind of pills were in DJ AM's stomach.

For the first time in 30 years of playing and coaching I find myself embarrassed to be associated with the game of basketball after viewing this year's McDonald's Prep All-Star Game. Watching this group of under-aged, over-indulged so-called basketball players do nothing but demonstrate their selfishness, laziness and out-of-control egos was more than a traditionalist like myself could stomach.

Injections of a gut hormone that tells the brain the stomach is full resulted in significant weight loss in a small human test, British researchers report today in the journal Diabetes. The study lasted a month and included 14 subjects who lost an average of 5 pounds, said Dr. Stephen R. Bloom, an endocrinologist at Imperial College London.

Stretched out on the floor at a Studio City gym, Wil Bowers, 35, is reluctant to take a break from his abdominal exercises. Only when he's assured that the interruption will be brief does he stop crunching and start chatting about why he does this. Flat abs, he explains, "give me confidence. And that's important for an actor." Like Bowers, Albert Schoenfield of Los Osos is justifiably proud of his silhouette, maintained by swimming 72 laps a day.

In the early 19th Century, a young Canadian named Alex St. Martin suffered a gunshot wound that left a permanent opening in his stomach. This allowed his physician to make a striking observation--the man's angry feelings slowed the passage of food through his stomach and hampered secretion of various stomach juices which aid digestion. More than 150 years after the case was detailed in a book by the physician, Dr.

It turns out that Democrats may not be the biggest stumbling block facing Rep. Dave Camp's ambitious proposal to simplify the tax code and reduce rates. Many of Camp's Republican colleagues, convinced that their party is poised to make big gains in the November elections, don't want to take up something as controversial as a tax code overhaul this year. And Camp's bill raised hackles among some important GOP donors by targeting them for tax hikes. As soon as Camp, the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, unveiled his magnum opus Wednesday, his brethren started backing away from it. Although it's as thorough a rewriting of the code as you're likely to see, the GOP leadership didn't assign it the bill number they had reserved for tax-reform legislation, HR 1, signifying that Camp's proposal was anything but a consensus document.

For more than three hours Sunday, millions of Americans joyfully cheered a football game whose players are paid to be angry and callous. But then, moments afterward, America was offended when one of those players spewed anger and callousness? The national vilifying of the Seattle Seahawks' Richard Sherman for his taunting televised postgame remarks Sunday after the Seahawks' 23-17 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC championship game cuts to the heart of sports hypocrisy.

It's a real heavyweight on the diet scene these days: intermittent fasting, a.k.a. IF (having ascended to heights where mere initials are enough). True, a fasting diet may not sound as appealing as, say, a cookie diet or a chocolate diet or a beer diet, but IF has been getting some jaw-droppingly good word of mouth from proponents who boast that it won't just make you thinner, it will make you healthier too. So far, evidence for their claims is promising but not overwhelming: Some of it is inconsistent, and much of it is anecdotal or rodent-based.

I always hated zombies. But I liked Gordon. He was going to be at my friend Jaime's annual Halloween party in Hollywood. I loved Halloween, and I never missed her party, but I was in New York working on a TV show. Homesick for my friends in L.A., I thought: What better reason to go back for the weekend? Gordon and I had met six months prior in L.A., through a different Jaime event. I found him attractive, but then I left town for work. A few weeks before Halloween, I saw Gordon on the dating site POF.com, short for Plenty of Fish.

An LAPD officer was charged this week with assault under color of authority for kicking a handcuffed woman, who later died, in the groin during an arrest last year in South Los Angeles.

Attention dieters: If you want to maximize your chances of success, don't go to the grocery store on an empty stomach. So says a new JAMA Internal Medicine study from two members of the Cornell University Food and Brand Lab , where researchers investigate “the psychology behind what people eat and how often they eat it,” as this website puts it. The study authors - Brian Wansink and Aner Tal - asked 68 study subjects to fast for...
