She plays a 16-year-old peasant girl in search of happiness on the smash Mexican soap opera "Marimar," now airing weeknights on KMEX-TV Channel 34. But a poor peasant girl is not all that 22-year-old Thalia plays.

Because she represents the joys of Latin pop in all its inconsequential glory, Thalia is the kind of artist who should be treated with a light touch rather than a heavy hand. Sure enough, the Mexican singer's extravagant show Friday at the Universal Amphitheatre delivered a fluffy assortment of suggestive dance routines, colorful wardrobe changes and a slick wall of sound that was equally informed by crunchy arena-rock, routine hip-hop and bubbly electronica.

The University of California's release of data on nearly 1,500 older concrete buildings across Los Angeles marks a key step in the city's efforts to improve earthquake safety.
