More than 1,000 years before humans began domesticating grains for food, they were building sophisticated storage buildings to hold the wild grains they were cultivating, researchers reported Monday. Collecting large quantities of grains and other foods is a prerequisite to establishing sizable communities, but such collection requires a system to store the perishables so they can be kept for months at least.

Yes, you have flashlights in each room. There are a dozen gallon-bottles of water placed throughout the apartment. That duffel bag is sitting at the ready in the hallway should you be forced to flee your home in an earthquake. You have your medications, a radio, $100 in traveler's checks. . . . You're ready. But what about your important papers, such as your will, your passport and your insurance records? You know you could find them in a pinch or two, all right maybe three, in a non-emergency.

Since we don't live in Fargo, N.D., why not telecommute alfresco? If you've ever tried to work outside, though, you've probably squandered time jiggering the laptop screen to fight glare or chasing papers hijacked by a gust. Eventually, you wound up back inside for an electrical plug.

In a daring midday robbery, at least three armed bandits ransacked a jewelry store in the Laguna Hills Mall and left a trail of expensive bracelets on the ground as they fled. A Sheriff's Department spokesman said the robbers may be part of a jewelry ring that has been terrorizing stores in Northern and Southern California for at least two years. "Their methods are basically the same--crash and run," Sheriff's Sgt. Wayne Carlander said.

So now it appears that pretty soon they'll need to build sprawling, ugly self-storage units to store the growing number of sprawling, ugly self-storage units going vacant. Business is dropping nationally, mainly because of overbuilding and increasing competition in what has basically been a get-rich-quick scheme to rent storage space for junk you want to own but don't want to step over every day. Everything is more crowded nowadays.

The dictionary calls them informers. Some people call them patriots. Others, snitches. The law calls them whistle-blowers. Litton Industries Inc. has such a whistle-blower, someone who filed a lawsuit--still under court seal--that led to the recent, massive search of Litton's Woodland Hills headquarters by FBI agents who are investigating alleged overbilling on government defense contracts.

As the death tally continued to climb, international rescue crews in Taiwan worked round the clock into this morning amid fading hopes of finding many more survivors of the powerful earthquake that struck the island early Tuesday.
