The  Perseid meteor shower  is one of nature's most spectacular light shows, and it's happening this weekend. The annual meteor shower will peak Sunday night into the dawn of Monday morning, and at the height of the shower, you can expect to see 100 meteors an hour, the Los Angeles Times reported .  This year, the moon is your friend and will appear as a thin crescent that shouldn't spoil your view of the shooting stars. And just to make you extra excited,  NASA  recently declared the Perseids the  fireball champion  of the meteor showers -- meaning it has the brightest meteors of all the annual showers.

A Glendale resident, along with a Los Angeles resident and a nonprofit group, filed a lawsuit this week asking a federal judge to force the city of Glendale to remove a controversial statue in a public park that honors women victimized by the Japanese government during World War II. The lawsuit is the latest attempt to remove the 1,100-pound statue for so-called “comfort women,” which was installed in July. Supporters of comfort women say the Japanese military coerced an estimated 80,000 to 200,000 women from Korea, China and other countries to work as prostitutes in military brothels against their will.

  Police fear a rash of trash and furniture fires over the past three months in south Glendale may be the work of an arsonist. Officers have logged 17 fires involving trash and abandoned furniture left on neighborhood sidewalks and in alleys since January. The fires, which have been mostly contained to items set ablaze, frequently occur at night and in the early morning. “These are not lightning strikes,” said Lt. John Gilkerson, who oversees south Glendale. “These are man-made fires.” The latest fire, which occurred at 4:50 a.m. Saturday, involved a mattress, and it spread to a carport in the 400 block of East Harvard Street, causing damage.

They are a people who have long endured repression and reigns of terror across Eastern Europe and the Middle East. Even here, in the Promised Land where so many Armenians are thriving, they still are victimized. Sometimes it's the pain of prejudice that every wave of immigrants has felt when their numbers threaten the way things were. This time, it comes from their own people, a vast Los Angeles-based international syndicate called Armenian Power that is accused of preying on Armenians, engaging in kidnapping, robbery and extortion even as its 250 members and hundreds of runners stole millions from banks and credit card companies, dealt drugs and committed other crimes against us all. On Wednesday, a joint local-state-federal task force of nearly 1,000 law enforcement officers — Operation Power Outage — rounded up 74 of the 99 suspects indicted by grand juries in Los Angeles and Orange County on 234 counts of criminal activity and racketeering.

A parking lot lined with red tassels marks the opening of the 18th Gelson's Market location in La Cañada Flintridge. Food chat sites like Chowhound suggest that the shopping experience at Gelson's is somewhere between that at Whole Foods and Ralphs. In an effort to get to know the store better, I took it upon myself to test that theory with a very unscientific experiment. Below are the results. By most accounts, Gelson's is renowned for their high-quality meats, seafood and produce.
