Twenty-first century seniors: They're not your grandparents' old folks. The elderly are growing increasingly diverse in the United States, a new report from UCLA researchers shows. Roughly one out of five are members of a racial or ethnic minority. More than one out of eight were born outside the country. By 2050, Latinos are projected to make up 20% of those 65 and older. Their lives also reflect other changes that have reverberated through American society in recent decades: Nearly 12% of seniors are separated or divorced, almost three times as many as in 1970, the report found.

The apartment construction boom sweeping Southern California and other parts of the country has about two more years to go before playing itself out, a UCLA report said. Developers are responding to the collapse of the single-family housing market in the recent economic downturn. It prompted increased demand for rental units as some homeowners lost their property and potential buyers retreated from the volatile market. Many investors perceive apartments as a safe, potentially lucrative investment, said the report from the UCLA Ziman Center for Real Estate.

Re "UCLA faculty survey cites racism," Oct. 19 The UCLA report on the university's policies on addressing accusations of racial bias mentions retaliation against a nonminority faculty member for speaking out against discriminatory conduct in his department. Something similar happened to me as a graduate student. The fact that my department as a whole was inclusive did not deter my advisor from making things difficult for me after I failed to show enthusiasm for his racial prejudices.

After reading your article, as well as from personal observation, it is evident that those who can get ahead in the Los Angeles most likely do so if they practice a profession such as law or medicine. With a few exceptions, everyone else has to really struggle. The high cost of housing is probably the greatest economic problem here. The UCLA report shows that Latina immigrants are at the bottom of the earning ladder and the photograph of the Guatemalan woman and her children speaks for itself.

Los Angeles mayoral and City Council candidates should address air, soil, water and energy problems in their campaigns and the winners should push for specific measures to meet those challenges, UCLA researchers said in a report released Tuesday. The report aims to ignite debate among candidates over their commitment to confronting environmental issues, including constrained water supplies, greenhouse gas emissions and tighter government budgets. "We're hoping that candidate debates from 2013 to 2021 will be loaded with questions derived from our plan," said Mark Gold, associate director of UCLA's Institute of Environment and Sustainability.

Fullback Chane Moline seems to be making the most of his last few college games. Moline scored on runs of two, seven and 16 yards -- his only carries -- in UCLA's 43-7 victory over Washington State, becoming the first Bruin to have three touchdowns runs since Maurice Drew in 2005. "I have only two, maybe three games left in a UCLA jersey," Moline said. "I'm happy get the opportunities." Moline scored on a one-yard run against Washington the previous week, as the Bruins turned to him to handle short-yardage situations.

Bessie Clayborne has big dreams for her grandson Malcolm. She has been raising the 6-year-old since he was a newborn, when, she says, his mother was jailed and his father - Clayborne's son - shirked all parental responsibility. Clayborne, who's had eight children of her own over the decades, says Malcolm was 3 days old when she picked him up from the hospital and police officers took his mother away. "I wasn't going to let him be out there with somebody" in foster care, the 83-year-old South Los Angeles resident said.

Orange County's economy - a standout in Southern California - is expected to accelerate through 2015, as the region's better-than-expected job growth drives the county's housing recovery, according to a UCLA report released Tuesday. Recent revisions from the state's Employment Development Department showed that Orange County gained more jobs than originally estimated. Since February 2012, employers' payrolls grew 2.6%, adding 35,200 net jobs, according to state figures. California payrolls, in comparison, grew 2.1% during the same period.

Despite quickening home sales and rising prices in some parts of California, the state's housing market won't begin a full-fledged recovery until next year, economists at UCLA predict. A dearth of residential construction remains a huge drag on the state's economy, according to the quarterly UCLA Anderson Forecast, while sales of distressed properties still dominate the market. "The data is just not telling me that the market has turned or is on the verge of turning," said senior economist Jerry Nickelsburg.

Nearly 5 million uninsured Californians could gain access to health coverage in 2014 when the nation's healthcare law expands eligibility for subsidized insurance programs for the poor, according to a new report. At that time, more than two-thirds of the state's 7 million uninsured residents will be eligible for California's Medi-Cal insurance program, which serves the state's poorest people, or for federal subsidies aimed at those who earn more but have no coverage through their jobs.

Re: Michael Hiltzik's business column "Turning down the temperature on illegal immigration," Apr. 21: This largely misses the point of the immigration debate. Even if it were correct, as one study suggests, that providing an amnesty would have little effect on the current labor market, one still needs to look at the long-term consequences. The last amnesty in 1986 led to an increase in illegal immigration, resulting in the crisis we face today. Given that outcome, why would we repeat the mistake?
