Parents are not out to get their children hurt when they grab for the video camera; things just happen, and that's what makes the pratfalls and comedy of errors so amusing. The child would have hit his head or run into the wall regardless of whether there was a video camera running. I feel censorship is being proposed when Rosenberg suggests that the show no longer accept videos containing children. Please, can we enjoy this little show without feeling guilty or taking it too seriously?

Astronomers have put the known universe in a box on your computer screen - the 120 million light-years of it within our grasp, at least. With a mellifluous French-accented narration, some light piano music and sweeping computer animation, the video could become a stoner classic. It also happens to be the most detailed modern cosmography of all that is visible in the sky - and a great deal of what is not. At nearly 18 minutes long (that's less than one side of Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon")

Scientists have released video of an 8-foot-long, shimmering oarfish taken about 200 feet below the ocean surface -- and it is breathtaking. Elusive and alien-looking, the oarfish has a thin, eel-like body with squiggly iridescent markings that glow blue in the video. It also has a long dorsal fin that stretches the length of nearly half its body, and large round eyes rimmed in silver. That bright white blob you see in the fish's spiny dorsal fins is a parasitic isopod -- sort of like an ocean version of the roly poly bug -- that has attached itself to the fish.

USC football players spoke to The Times last week about how they were by humbled by their recent trip to Haiti , where a group of 16 Trojans helped build four houses and moved supplies to people still recovering from the 2010 earthquake. On Monday, USC released a video about the trip featuring interviews with players while they were in Haiti and also shows them working with and interacting with children and local residents. "I think it sparked something in me that I'm going to continue to do the rest of my life," defensive lineman Devon Kennard says in the video.

There is nothing like listening to Stephen A. Smith drop names, places and other various references to his many friends in the sporting world when he's on ESPN's First Take morning program or breaking down the NBA on various other broadcasts. A lot of people don't like his shtick, but let's face it, most of the big-time personalities on sports television mimic talk radio these days: the louder and more emphatic you say it, the better. You don't have to be right. Or wrong.

Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa on Saturday dismissed as a "sham" a newly released video in which a Colombian rebel commander discusses contributing money to Correa's 2006 election campaign. The video, whose existence was revealed by the Associated Press on Friday, appears to lend credibility to allegations that the leftist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia contributed to the Correa campaign.

A UC Irvine fraternity has volunteered to suspend itself after it was blasted for a member-produced video that featured a student in blackface. Lambda Theta Delta announced Wednesday that it would cancel all major events and stop operating as a UCI-sanctioned organization until fall 2014. "This decision is mainly due to the abhorrent, insensitive and highly offensive 'blackface' video created by our members that has been circulated widely on the Internet," members of the Asian fraternity said in a statement on their Facebook page . Lambda Theta Delta came under fire toward the end of April for the video on its YouTube page that showed four of its members lip-syncing to the Justin Timberlake/ Jay-Z song "Suit and Tie. " The student playing Jay-Z wore blackface in the video.

The video's opening scene features a rapper performing on stage, inspiring the crowd to wave their hands in the air. The video then cuts to frequent shots of drinking, dancing and women scantily clad. On and on it goes, just like the other countless hip-hop music videos already have shown. Yet, when this 10-minute video features Lakers forward Metta World Peace, it boasts even more head-scratching moments. Per Times policy, it's not appropriate to embed the video on this post since it features plenty of suggestive lyrics and images.
