UPCOMING TODAY:

COLLEGE ADMISSIONS-BRIBERY-USC

LOS ANGELES _ The past year has been a bruising one for the University of Southern California. The president who helped boost the school’s endowment above $6 billion had to step down amid investigations into a medical school dean accused of smoking methamphetamine with a prostitute who overdosed, its longtime gynecologist was accused of sexual misconduct by hundreds of women he examined over decades and an assistant men’s basketball coach pleaded guilty to charges stemming from an FBI probe of corruption in college basketball. By Brian Melley. UPCOMING.

SCIENCE GOES TO THE DOGS

LOS ANGELES _ Did people domesticate dogs or was it the other way around? And why do these two species seem to think so much alike, act so much alike and get along so well? The California Science Center has spent the past five years sniffing out the answers to those and hundreds of other vexing canine questions. It will begin revealing the conclusions Saturday with an ambitious, if somewhat lighthearted, new exhibition called “Dogs! A Science Tail.” By John Rogers. SENT: 900 words, photos.

FACEBOOK-REVENGE PORN

SAN FRANCISCO _ Facebook is rolling out technology to make it easier to find and remove intimate pictures and videos posted without the subject’s consent, often called “revenge porn.” By Rachel Lerman. SENT: 490 words, photos.

UPCOMING TOMORROW:

_No event coverage planned.
