On the 10th anniversary of the year that Gabriela Artigas designed her first piece of jewelry - a cuff bracelet fashioned out of a boldly colored acrylic toothbrush, minus the bristles, which she purchased at the supermarket while studying fabric design in her hometown of Mexico City - the local brand has opened its first stand-alone studio in West Hollywood. Chelsea Handler, Carey Mulligan, Emma Roberts and Tyra Banks are just a few star fans of the label, which is designed and handcrafted in Los Angeles.

More notable than USC's 73-57 beating of West Alabama on Thursday night at the Galen Center was an announcement before the game. J.T. Terrell, who had led the Trojans with 20 points in their opening loss to Utah State and who led USC last year in Pac-12 Conference scoring, is ineligible for the rest of the fall semester because of academic reasons. USC Coach Andy Enfield said it's possible Terrell, a senior guard, could regain his eligibility as soon as the Long Beach State game Dec. 19, depending on when first-semester grades are posted.

HOUSTON - Officials are letting a fire burn out at a Chevron liquefied gas pipeline that exploded in a rural north Texas town Thursday when a construction crew accidentally drilled into the conduit. The town of Milford, about 50 miles south of Dallas, was evacuated, with many of its 700 residents going to a gym in the nearby town of Italy. They are not expected to be allowed back until Friday morning at the earliest, Milford Fire Chief Mark Jackson said. He said no injuries were reported after the 9:40 a.m. blast.
