When it comes to bridging East and West, Jeff Goddard is a tireless middleman. In 1978, the Glendale native pitched the Mormon faith in Japan, learning that nation's language and culture through door-to-door encounters in southern Honshu and on Shikoku island. In 1983, he joined the Tokyo office of advertising giant Ogilvy & Mather and persuaded the Japanese to eat more Sunkist oranges, use more Exxon oil and wear Lee jeans.

Southern California entrepreneur Jeffrey Goddard is exporting water, in a manner of speaking. His Studio City-based TVA, the Video Agency, is marketing multimedia water shows to theme park operators around the world, particularly Asia. He calls it a dive-in, a high-tech show projected onto water screens. Viewers can watch from the edge of the pool or even enjoy the theatrics as they float on inner tubes.

A solar flare flashed on the turbulent surface of the sun last week - and NASA captured the moment in a video. The agency's Solar Dynamics Observatory watched as balletic lines of light swirled and grew to produce the M-class flare. Solar flares get letter grades to categorize their strength. The weakest ones are A-class; then come B, C, M and finally X class. Each letter class is 10 times stronger than the one before it. Numbers attached to each letter put a finer point on each flare's power.

If you think that you have all the information you need to make a critical business decision next week, read no further. But if you feel that you could make much smarter decisions if you had more information, read on. Most small-business owners know that there are information resources available beyond the local library but have no idea about how to tap them or think that they can't afford them. But knowing how to obtain affordable, strategic information is essential to your financial success.

The official account of the videotaped beating of a 16-year-old Inglewood boy describes an increasingly tense situation in which officers repeatedly gave orders to the boy, only to be met by what they perceived as resistance. "I asked him to place his hands on the roof," wrote Sheriff's Deputy Carlos Lopez in his report, a copy of which was shared with The Times on Tuesday. "He didn't respond and continued to stare at me."

The Times surveyed San Diegans on athletic matters, including what the Padres should do to win a pennant. Lots of responses concerned pitching, hitting and baserunning. My favorite response? "Need to bring back the Chicken." The Chicken has not appeared at a Padres game this season. Rumor in the clubhouse is that Manager Jack McKeon thinks the fowl antics damage the serious tone of the game. Ted Giannoulas, the Chicken's alter ego, doesn't see it that way. "I'm a good cluck charm," he said.

It was pushing 11 on a Friday night, and Austin Raishbrook wanted to be prowling the streets of Los Angeles looking for murder and mayhem. Mired in a pocket of messy downtown traffic, the 32-year-old British transplant clenched the wheel of his Police Interceptor Crown Victoria and cursed out loud. Every few seconds, he turned his attention to the laptop computer glowing beside him, checking for any fresh crash alerts on an internal California Highway Patrol website. One of the three radio scanners clipped to the visor above Raishbrook's head crackled to life.

When Campus Crusade for Christ International spreads the gospel, the sky is the limit. The San Bernardino-based interdenominational ministry next week will bounce the Christian message off 17 communications satellites hovering 22,700 miles above Earth's surface. Designed to "win the world for Christ," the live television network will bring EXPLO 85, an unprecedented program of evangelism training, to more than 90 separate conferences in about 50 nations and territories.

In what is shaping up as the most expensive city election in Orange County history, Anaheim voters will go to the polls Nov. 8 to choose a mayor and fill two City Council seats. It is expected that the 13 candidates--including two who are bidding for the largely ceremonial mayor's position--will spend well over half a million dollars vying for three jobs that pay a total of $1,600 a month. All that money, however, is chasing very little in the way of specific issues.

In many ways, the women are very different: One is a doctor, another a hairdresser, the third is on welfare. But they have at least two things in common. They are black. And they are alone. Barbara, 45, thinks her marital chances may have died in a distant land. "I think my husband may be pushing up daisies in Vietnam," she says of the place where 7,000 black American soldiers lost their lives. Geneva, 31, sometimes blames herself: "You sit back and think 'What's wrong with me that I can't find a good guy?
