Westmont took control in the second half and defeated Southern California College, 76-66, in a Golden State Athletic Conference men's basketball game Saturday at SCC. Because SCC's game with Point Loma Nazarene was postponed because of rain Tuesday, this was the Vanguards' conference opener and Coach Bill Reynolds was eager to see how his team would stack up. Turns out, the Vanguards (10-8, 0-1) gave Westmont (11-4, 2-0) all it could handle in the first half, but faded fast in the second.

LONDON - It was a German-born Russian empress, Catherine the Great, who first annexed Crimea more than two centuries ago. Can another strong-willed German woman - who keeps a portrait of Catherine in her Berlin office as a symbol of visionary leadership - loosen Russia's renewed grip on the peninsula? Many in the West are pinning their hopes on Angela Merkel, Germany's long-serving chancellor, to stand at the forefront of a potent, united response by Europe to Russia's seizure of Crimea from Ukraine.

For the first time in 12 years, the Southern California College baseball team defeated Cal State Fullerton, 9-8, Wednesday at Fullerton.

A four-run second inning gave the Vanguards (28-14-2) a 6-2 lead. The Titans (25-24-1) scored twice in the ninth inning to make it close.

To some people - those who might attend a guerrilla reading in San Francisco, for example - Ken Baumann is a writer and small-press publisher who is part of the contemporary literary vanguard. And yet, to a generation of adolescent girls, he's instantly recognizable as a star of the beloved ABC Family series "The Secret Life of the American Teenager," now in its last season. "As long as I can do both, why wouldn't I want to?" Baumann asks at an L.A. cafe. He's lanky and pale-skinned, making it easy to see why he was cast as a high school student in 2008 (he's now 23)

Whenever Southern California College and Biola University get together for basketball, it's always an exciting, anything-goes contest. But Tuesday night, when the Vanguards met the Eagles at Biola's Chase Gymnasium, it looked as if Biola had the advantage. With the benching of senior guard Sherwin Durham and the absence of junior guard Ken Bardsley, SCC's offense appeared weakened.

Last week, a DJ threw a rave at Vanguard. This in and of itself was pretty unremarkable; for years, the imposing East Hollywood warehouse plunked amid car dealerships and the 101 overpass was a staple of L.A. dance music culture, regularly hosting deep-house veterans like Marques Wyatt, even if the room itself was a bit bedraggled. Yet on that particular night, the DJ was the Swedish neo-house festival-topper Avicii and the club was packed to capacity with svelte 1-percenters and younger, rowdier club kids buzzing with improbable news: Vanguard is back on the map. “It was so much better than we expected,” said Costas Charalambous, the senior vice president of night life for the hospitality conglomerate SBE. “We were actually wondering afterwards, 'Did we just hurt ourselves here?

"You've gotta see them live. " That's a common response when talking to someone about a new musical discovery. And yet, live albums are viewed with a bit of disdain in the pop and rock realm, where they're often little more than a perfunctory, last-gasp release to fulfill the record company requirement. In the world of improvised music, however, live albums are where the rubber meets the road, where the music can venture from a sketch to a widescreen portrait. In the last few months there are have been a remarkable bounty of live albums in jazz, and each expresses artistry that existed for only one night, but now it's in your hand.

HONG KONG — It's a warm, humid day halfway into the city's International Film Festival, and Edwin — a rising Indonesian indie filmmaker with his single name born of tradition rather than manufactured Hollywood artifice — is trying to explain how he shapes the aesthetic of his films. It all begins with a single image. For "Postcards From the Zoo," an ethereal fairy-tale-like story of a child abandoned at Jakarta's Ragunan Zoo that is in competition, it was raindrops on an elephant's hide.

Bothaina Kamel is a novelty and a provocation in a single breath. The only woman running for Egypt's presidency, she travels without an entourage, wears a bracelet that says "Make poverty history," can outlast the most exasperating heckler in the crowd, and has no chance of winning. "I want to create culture shock. Yes, a woman is running for president," says Kamel, a television presenter and ex-wife of a former cultural minister. "Some people have come up to me and asked, 'Is it even legal for a woman to run?

Bob Lester, El Modena High School football coach, had seen this all before. A playoff opponent with star players and record breakers who figured to challenge the Vanguards and, perhaps, even defeat them. Last year, it was Esperanza. The Aztecs featured tailback Jim Farrell, who had scored an Orange County record 32 touchdowns, and quarterback Greg Beckman, who had passed for more than 2,000 yards. They were heavily favored to defeat El Modena in the Southern Conference championship game.

Question: I'd like to know whether I should keep my shares in Vanguard Capital Opportunity Fund. Answer: It is understandable that some longtime owners of this popular fund would become concerned. Underperforming stocks of Research in Motion, maker of the BlackBerry, and chip maker Cree Inc. have lately held back overall results, a natural consequence of a contrarian growth approach that often includes volatile technology. The Vanguard Capital Opportunity Fund was up less than 2% in a recent 12-month period to rank in the lower one-fifth of large growth funds.

Irvine Co. Chairman Donald Bren made a rare public appearance Thursday as he came before a respected real estate trade group at the Los Angeles Convention Center to accept an award, reminisce and grouse a bit about an old antagonist. Bren, who became Southern California's wealthiest man in the process of turning the Irvine Ranch in Orange County into a planned community, was feted by the Urban Land Institute, a Washington-based think tank and trade organization. About 7,000 members are attending the international group's fall meeting in Los Angeles, and many of them crowded into a meeting hall to see the elusive billionaire in the flesh.
