Are there not enough women to take the stage at Coachella?

Coachella Valley Music and Arts fest may be a weekend filled with halter tops and short shorts, but it's also become a hotbed of gender politics.  The Los Angeles Times is reporting that the Indio-based concert event features only 16 solo female artists or all-female bands ? out of 166 acts. And that's the best ratio the fest has ever had. Last year, only 10 female artists or all-female bands performed. The event, which spans two weekends (last weekend and this upcoming one), featured such superstars?

Smoke ?em while you got ?em. That?s the message L.A. is sending to e-cigarette smokers today. Because as the clock strikes midnight Saturday morning, e-smoking will be treated as cigarette smoking,  according to the Los Angeles Times. ?Vapers,'' as e-cigarette users have begun calling themselves will nolonger be able to legally puff their battery-powered cigs at bars, nightclubs, restaurants or indoor workplaces.

Assembly to vote on alligator skin trade

Alligator is on the table ? literally and metaphorically, speaking. While alligator meat is perfectly acceptable in a stew (did I say perfectly acceptable? I meant delicious), the reptilian skins used to make high-end luxury goods like boots, shoes, purses, wallets and watch bands are only available in California as part of an exemption to an existing state ban on the importation of the once-endangered species. In 2006, the state legislature approved a temporary measure that allowed luxury retailers,?

Are voters ready to alter Prop 13?

A new poll shows California voters are open to putting once-sacrosanct Proposition 13,which puts restrictions on property taxes and is generally considered untouchable, back on the table. About half ? 49 percent ? of registered voters, when asked in a general way if they would support the idea of making some changes to the landmark measure that was enshrined into the state constitution in 1978, said they would, while 34 percent said they were opposed to the idea, according to the  Los Angeles?

Four new wide releases hit theaters this Easter weekend, but with a soft launch expected for ?Transcendence,? ?Captain America: The Winter Soldier? and ?Rio 2? may once again be vying for the top spot. Last weekend, the Marvel movie was number one in a tight race with $41.3 million in its sophomore frame, down 57 percent from its record-breaking $95.0 million debut. Meanwhile, ?Rio 2? debuted in second with $39.3 million. Both are tracking between $20 million and $25 million and could?

How far would you go to protect your spouse or your children? Two new movies explore this question in very different ways?and to very different ends. In ?Transcendence,? Johnny Depp stars as Dr. Will Caster, a scientist in the field of artificial intelligence whose work toward creating a sentient machine with the combined collective intelligence of the entire history of the human race attracts the attention of anti-technology extremists. After a TED-like talk on his research, he?s shot with?
