Elvis Khachatryan said he usually considers Los Angeles to Texas to be a short trip. Pilots are prone to thinking the country is much smaller than it is, he said, which is one reason he and two colleagues will depart this morning and bike nearly 3,200 miles in a two-month trek to St. Augustine, Fla., near Jacksonville. The trio will have to bike about 60 miles a day to reach Texas in a month, facing temperatures ranging from 90 degrees in the desert to nighttime lows of 50. Each will bring only three pairs of underwear.

Claudia Peschiutta DOWNTOWN -- He survived the tumultuous waves of the Atlantic Ocean. His life has been anything but peaceful since. The debate considers over whether to keep Elian Gonzalez -- the 6-year-old Cuban boy found floating on an inner tube off the coast of Florida on Thanksgiving Day -- with family members in the U.S. or send him back to his father in Cuba. The case has turned him into a political symbol for both supporters and opponents of Cuban President Fidel Castro and his story has inspired protests in Cuba and the U.S. Though it appeared U.S. immigration officials had decided the issue by setting a Friday deadline for Elian's return to his father, Juan Miguel Gonzalez, a Miami judge Monday issued a temporary protective order, allowing relatives of the boy in the U.S. to seek custody.

Leno is joking -- that's what he does Regarding Paul Wangsness' letter slamming Jay Leno: Paul, lighten up, it's a joke. Get it? Leno is a comedian. Comedians do jokes. Leno just happens to be better at it than the rest. As for not hearing in his "bad rap" on community colleges, let me fill you in. They take the camera to the college, and ask students questions like "Where is the Atlantic Ocean?" When these college students can't answer that, they put them on TV. All Leno is doing is asking the questions and holding the mic. The students are the ones that make it into a joke.

Janine Marnien With symptoms of the forecasted El Nino condition being somewhat of a no-show thus far, Jet Propulsion Laboratory and National Weather Service officials have differing opinions on the overall effect the event will have on Southern California. An El Nino event happens when a warming of the water in the equatorial Pacific waters occurs. This can direct storms toward the southwestern U.S. But JPL research climatologist and oceanographer Bill Patzert doesn't think torrential rains, like those during the 1997-98 El Nino, are headed toward Southern California.

Christopher Columbus never reached India on his voyage across the Atlantic Ocean, but he set lofty goals for himself and worked hard to achieve them, which was the message conveyed Monday to Horace Mann Elementary School students. Students gathered on the playground to hear a presentation put together by fourth- and fifth-grade student council members about the Italian explorer and what his life could teach them about achieving their own goals. About a dozen student council members took turns reading from a script they had researched and written that wove together facts about Columbus with facts about their school.

BURBANK — Flights were delayed at Bob Hope Airport Thursday as a result of tightened security following an alleged terrorist threat in England that threw air traffic into turmoil worldwide. British police arrested at least 24 people Wednesday night who allegedly planned to smuggle liquids disguised as drinks that could be mixed to form explosives aboard about 10 planes headed for the United States, officials said. British officials believe suicide bombers planned to mix the explosive liquids over the Atlantic Ocean in a plot on the scale of the Sept.

Students in Cathi Garcia's science class went around the world in 30 minutes — and learned a few things along the way. Kindergarten through eighth-grade students at Holy Redeemer School filed into the gymnasium during their science-class period Monday and got a crash course in geography using a huge, inflatable globe measuring 19 feet high and 22 feet in diameter. "It's just a really beautiful, big thing for the kids to see," said Garcia, who brought a similar prop into the gym four years ago. Earth's geographic features were printed on the globe using satellite images, creating a much more accurate representation of the planet than a textbook map, Garcia said.

Seeing a country by car or bus is too fast to really experience it, AnneĆ© Deering thought to herself while traveling through Vietnam on a bus when she spent a semester abroad in her senior year of college two years ago. So Deering, now 25 and living in Glendale, resolved that when she returned home, she’d see America in a slower, more personal way: by bike. “A bike is kind of as close a relationship as you can get,” Deering said. Deering and her boyfriend will begin a three-month, 3,000-mile journey across the country next week.

As a young adult who participates in Armenian and non-Armenian organizations including the Commission on the Status of Women and events hosted by the Armenian Youth Federation, I feel compelled to respond to Dan Kimber’s recent column. (“Greet melting pot with open arms,” April 17) Merriam Webster defines assimilating as the absorption (of one) into the culture or mores of a population or group; to make similar. In common usage, the general perception of the term within the Armenian community is that it is the giving up of one’s own identity in order to assume another’s, a loss of cultural richness in a zero-sum system.
