There's one mountain in Hollywood that even "The Hunger Games'" scrappy heroine Katniss Everdeen hasn't been able to move: the number of roles for women. Despite the success of recent female-driven movies such as "Bridesmaids" and the "Hunger Games" and "Twilight" series, female representation in popular movies is at its lowest level in five years, according to a study being released Monday by the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism. Among the 100 highest-grossing movies at the U.S. box office in 2012, the study reported, 28.4% of speaking characters were female.

California's population will grow more slowly in the next few decades than it has in the past - and that is good for the state's still-struggling economy, according to a new USC report. The study projects that the state's population, now 37.3 million, will continue to increase at a healthy clip - about 1% annually - for years to come. But at least through 2050, we are unlikely to see the boom rates of recent decades, especially the 1980s. "This is more manageable growth and that's good news for California," said Dowell Myers, a USC demography and urban planning professor who co-wrote the report with colleague John Pitkin.

The Southland's economic recovery may be halting and tepid, but the cost of apartment living is rising sharply with rents in Los Angeles County predicted to soar 7.9% over the next year, according to a USC report. The annual Casden Multifamily Forecast by the university's Lusk Center for Real Estate showed rents last year rose in 39 of the submarkets the report tracks in the counties of Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, Riverside and San Bernardino. That across-the-board increase is a change from 2010 when 26 markets showed flat or increasing rents and a big turnaround from 2009 when only three submarkets saw rents rising.

Despite soaring unemployment, California and Los Angeles County have fared better on many indicators during the recession than the nation as a whole, according to a report released Tuesday by USC. The study, titled "California Roller Coaster: Income and Housing in Boom and Bust, 1990-2010," used data from the U.S. census and other sources to compare measures, such as employment growth and homeownership between the recession of the early 1990s and...

USC quarterback Matt Barkley lost a fumble and had three passes intercepted Saturday in Stanford's 55-21 victory over the Trojans. Barkley came into the game having completed 12 of 38 passes for 161 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions in the previous six quarters. The freshman was 21 for 31 for 196 yards and a touchdown against Stanford, but the Cardinal turned every turnover into a touchdown. "I don't feel really flustered," Barkley said. "It's just we've had some bad breaks and I think maybe tried to do too much at times."

Michael Beasley can have his points. The Kansas State freshman forward has scored at least 30 points in 13 games and at least 20 points in 23 games this season, so it's almost a given that he will come up big Thursday in Omaha when the 11th-seeded Wildcats play sixth-seeded USC in an NCAA tournament first-round game.
