Ocean fish are the last wild creatures that people hunt on a large scale. We used to think of the ocean's bounty as endless. Recently, we have discovered its limits. Between 1950 and 1994, ocean fishermen increased their catch by 400 percent by doubling the number of boats they used and using more effective fishing gear, according to Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch. In 1989, the world's catch leveled off at about 82 million metric ... [full story]

In The 2007 Callaway Junior World Golf Championships, South African Dylan Frittelli won the Boys 15-17 Division with an impressive performance on the demanding South Course at Torrey Pines. He shot 70-70-69-74 to blow away the field and win by five shots over the next-best golfer, Danny Lee. Ryo Ishikawa, a 15-year-old from Japan, was in the field that week, but hardly was a factor, other than creating a media frenzy. The so-called "Bashful Prince" ... [full story]

Children love to read about friendship woes and triumphs. These new books showcase the importance peers have in the lives of all kids. "Hello, My Name is Bob" by Linas Alsenas; Scholastic Press; 32 pages; $16.99.   Bob, a mellow bear who likes to sit alone in empty parking lots, is quiet. Jack is the opposite: a surfing, dancing, bright color-wearing panda bear. It seems implausible that the pair could be friends, and young children may ... [full story]

Will the extraordinary success of "Slumdog Millionaire," whose vibrant soundtrack alone accounts for three of the hit film's 10 Oscar nominations, help make the typical American pop listener more receptive to Indian music in general and the country's Bollywood movie music specifically?   The answer, several experts say, remains to be seen. But there seems to be general agreement that the music by A R Rahman in "Slumdog Millionaire" — which has one Oscar nomination for ... [full story]

Log homes, firmly ingrained in our nation's history, are still very popular with today's buyers — particularly with those seeking a second or vacation home. The most famous of all log cabins is the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln. The spotlight is on that tiny cabin more than ever this year, as we observe the bicentennial of Lincoln's birth. That cabin had only one room, one door, one window with no glass in it, and a ... [full story]

Watching "The Secrets" is work. It's a multilayered film, in Hebrew with English subtitles, about complex religious concepts. It's also a story about human relationships, love, courage and redemption. And that's why you work to stay with it.   4 STARS - Excellent. 3 STARS - Worthy. 2 STARS - Mixed. 1 STAR - Poor. 0 - Forget It (a dog.)  Set in Israel, the film opens in Naomi's home, at the funeral for her mother. Naomi ... [full story]

Parents: Need an effective approach to abstinence-only education? Fire those fire-juggling clowns with their insipid inspirational messages. Instead, load your teenagers into the SUV for an educational matinee of "Friday the 13th." It'll scare the pants onto them.   4 STARS - Excellent. 3 STARS - Worthy. 2 STARS - Mixed. 1 STAR - Poor. 0 - Forget It (a dog.)  Like many teen horror movies, the lesson of "Friday the 13th" is that sinners die. Die ... [full story]

It won't surprise anyone that we talk plenty about personal finance at my office — about the importance of saving and investing for the future, and about finding ways to make that process easier and more effective for people. But lately, the big topic of conversation has focused more on spending than investing. The discussion gets boiled down into something along these lines: "On the one hand, I think I should be saving my money. ... [full story]

Dear John: My soon-to-be ex-husband, "Jerry," and I are a month away from finalizing our divorce. Our 5-year-old son is my only joy in life. Our son goes over to Jerry's house, and has learned about Jerry's new girlfriend — someone whose existence Jerry kept from me, until our son spilled the beans. This divorce has been very hard on me. After all, it was Jerry who did not want to remain married to me. ... [full story]
