BURBANK — A small group of demonstrators huddled outside NBC Studios on Monday, calling on world leaders to take decisive action on climate change as President Obama prepares for a series of meetings this week. Carrying signs and mobile phones synchronized to buzz at 12:18 p.m., the handful of protesters were part of a worldwide flash mob sending a rush of phone calls to world leaders urging action on climate change, said Ron Piasecki, organizer and local member of Avaaz, an online group that seeks stronger environmental and human rights protections.

From this vantage point, any and all efforts to rename public facilities in Burbank after the late, great Bob Hope are a good idea. Hope, who died July 27 at the age of 100, officially made his home in Toluca Lake, but unofficially was Burbank's favorite son. His ties to the local community were due partly to his long and productive film career, much of it through studios based in Burbank, and partly because of his...

Ryan Carter Even with his "Nightly News with Tom Brokaw" beamed to millions of homes each night, the longtime reporter and anchor knows the importance of sharing news in a community of 100,000, like Burbank. With the declining readership of newspapers and the inability of larger print and broadcast media to fill community news niches, Brokaw reiterated the importance of community news gathering. Brokaw was in Burbank on Wednesday as part of a three-city tour that included San Jose and San Diego.

Dear screenwriters, fiction writers, copywriters, letter writers, memo writers, resume writers, e-mail writers, manifesto writers and public lavatory poets: It's time we had a talk ? about typos. Wait. Before you turn to the comics ? it's not what you think. This is not a scolding. In fact, let me save you trouble of turning the page: Cathy doesn't like swimsuit season. There. Mystery solved. Now we can get back to the business of typos. And here's what I want to say: Don't feel bad. That's right.

Presented as a sequel to the 1998 film ?Elizabeth,? ?Elizabeth: The Golden Age? is reminiscent of historical dramas that were staples for years, going back to the early days of Hollywood. This latest offering from director Shekhar Kapur delivered the goods pretty much as I expected; that is, opulent costumes, exaggerated hairstyles, corny, stilted dialogue, rugged battle scenes, and at least one reasonably steamy romance. And although this film is not quite as good as its predecessor, I loved every minute of it. Cate Blanchett, in her reprised role as Elizabeth, reaffirmed my belief that she is the finest film actress of her generation.

Bellarmine-Jefferson High School students looking to carve out a life path can now turn to the likes of Desmond Tutu and Jane Goodall for inspiration. The Catholic high school recently published "Wisdom of Giants," a collection of 100 letters addressed to the 300-member student body from some of the greatest world leaders and scholars. "When you look at the compilation, there are some fantastic people represented," said Bellarmine-Jefferson Principal Sister Cheryl Milner. Glendale resident and Bellarmine-Jefferson economics teacher Dennis Ryan launched the project in 2001.

Bob Kramer Have you noticed how prevalent automated phone lines have become? It seems you no longer talk to actual employees of a company, you merely push buttons. What made me think about this was when my phone lines at home went dead the other day. I called Pacific Bell's repair service at 611 and was surprised at all the buttons I had to push. For example, I was instructed to push 1 for further instructions in English. I then pushed another number to indicate my phone line was dead.
