UCLA Coach Jim Mora wants Devin Fuller to become a problem. The plan is to have opposing defensive players doing pre-snap recon work, trying to locate Fuller before he reappears in the end zone with the ball. It may become quite a shell game. "We hope he becomes that 'Where's Waldo' guy," Mora said. "Every time someone prepares for us, they go into a game wondering, 'Where's No. 7.' Is he at quarterback, running back, receiver, slot, is that him on the kickoff return?" A lot will be expected from Fuller, a sophomore receiver.

"Billy Wilder did something unusual before I was cast," Livingston recalls.

Two of the most prestigious names in Southern California healthcare - Cedars-Sinai and UCLA - are getting shut out of a major insurance plan for being too expensive. In a bold cost-cutting move, Anthem Blue Cross has eliminated doctors affiliated with the hospitals from a health plan offered to about 60,000 employees and dependents at the cash-strapped city of Los Angeles. The city opted for Anthem's plan because it will save $7.6 million in annual premiums next year by excluding physicians from the two institutions known for tending to the Southland's rich and famous.

Architects, general contractors and divorce attorneys agree: Remodeling is a major cause of relationship stress. Therapists rank it somewhere between infidelity and meddling mother-in-laws. Symptoms of remodeling stress range from the occasional argument to lonely nights on the couch. And in extreme cases, the stress caused by construction can even lead to divorce.

MUSIC Live up to the instrumental reputation of bassist-composer Charles Mingus? There's a tall order for any group.

Royce Hall, UCLA. 8 p.m. Fri. $20 to $60. http://www.uclalive.org

There may be no more dapper ensemble than Max Raabe and his Palast Orchester. The combo drinks deep from flapper-era jazz, Weimar Berlin and Irving Berlin alike for a sound both preserved in amber and entirely entrancing. The combo also has a cracking sense of humor — the banter is as witty as the arrangements. Royce Hall, UCLA. 8 p.m. Thu. $25 to $80. http://www.uclalive.org.
