    Avalon Lafosse, 1st teen to win a Segerstrom Center for the Arts leadership award, is out to save the world through art therapy
    In the midst of high school graduation ceremonies, it seems almost too early to introduce a student about to enter her senior year. Then again, perhaps it’s the perfect time.
    On Tuesday, June 4, 16-year-old Avalon Lafosse will become the first teenager to receive a Segerstrom Center for the Arts leadership award.
    The cool thing is that the award isn’t just about Lafosse’s personal artistic accomplishments, although there is that. It’s also about how she teaches art to kid

    In ‘Dune: Part Two,’ filmmaker Denis Villeneuve realizes a lifetime dream
    Denis Villeneuve doesn’t feel like he came back to Arrakis for “Dune: Part Two.” In his mind, he never left.
    The sequel, which opens in theaters on March 1, is the culmination of a six-year filmmaking journey, preceded by 40 years of dreaming about it. And it’s one that Christopher Nolan has already compared to “The Empire Strikes Back.”

    Lakers’ defensive rebounding comes back into focus
    EL SEGUNDO — Considering how the last few games have gone – and really the last month – it wasn’t surprising that the Lakers spent a considerable amount of Tuesday’s practice looking at film of their rebounding.
    There were plenty of critiques to be shared.
    “We just watched a huge section on it in our film session,” Coach Darvin Ham said after Tuesday’s practice ended. “All bad clips.”

    GLENDALE, Ariz. — The jerseys appear low-grade, the pants are see-through and the letters on the back are too small.
    The complaints about the new MLB uniform template have been plentiful, although the talk Tuesday mostly advanced to who was wearing that garb and not the aesthetic.
    Shohei Ohtani made his debut in a spring training game for the Dodgers, and while the environment still fell short of a regular-season game, it was far more than a simple romp in the sun on an idyllic desert day.
