If no one wins tonight's $400-million Powerball drawing, the money will rollover, and the jackpot could soar to $500 million, lottery officials say. The drawing is scheduled for 10:59 p.m. EST, or 7:59 p.m. on the West Coast, according to the Multi-State Lottery Assn. Drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday night. The $400-million jackpot is the sixth-largest in U.S. lottery history, and the odds of winning are about 1 in 175 million, officials said. “We're getting into this routine now where this is becoming normal,” California Lottery spokesman Alex Traverso said, “which is great for us because when you look at sales, they're steadily climbing.” Traverso said that year-to-date, the California Lottery is generating about 150% of the revenue it did during the same period in the previous fiscal year.

The top three finishers in the giant slalom were Olympic champions before they slid out of the start gate. The winner, Tina Maze of Slovenia, hadn't won a gold medal since … the women's downhill Feb. 12. FRAMEWORK: Best images from Sochi Maze, 30, probably has ski socks older than Shiffrin.

At the 1960 Academy Awards, all eyes were on Doris Day, lead actress nominee for "Pillow Talk," who glittered in a silvery sheath. The gown was actually a costume borrowed from Day's next picture, the lush Ross Hunter thriller "Midnight Lace," which would nab costume designer Irene Lentz her second Oscar nomination the following year. But after cycling through a Hollywood career - starting out as a Mack Sennett extra and rising to be head of costume at MGM following Adrian - by 1960, Lentz was only freelancing in films for stars such as Day. Lentz's clientele was much, much wider - she was dressing fashionable women across the country in Irene, her line of structured suiting and bias silk soufflé gowns that she started with the backing of tony stores like Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus after leaving MGM in the late 1940s.

Might "American Idol's" slide into irrelevance be a boon for its talent? That's one takeaway to be drawn from the surprisingly strong debut by Candice Glover, who last year won the televised singing competition amid historically low ratings. A big-voiced soul belter, Glover ended a lengthy stretch of victories by white-guy guitar strummers, including Lee DeWyze and Phillip Phillips - reason enough to celebrate her win. But she's also made a better record than the last few "Idol" champs, one that doesn't sound like its quirks have been ironed out in an attempt to satisfy the show's once-enormous audience.

James White hesitated before deciding to run for USC student body president, knowing he'd be a long shot because of his background. Because he's black? "No, not that," White said, adding that race isn't the biggest deal in campus presidential elections. "It's other forms of diversity that aren't appreciated. "  FOR THE RECORD: An earlier version of this article said that USC student government presidential candidates have been exclusively male since 2005. That is the case since 2006.
