Whicker: Can USC, Enfield afford to miss the NCAA tournament again?

LOS ANGELES >> The national impression from USC’s win Thursday night was the 74-foot lightning bolt from the hands of Onyeka Okongwu. As the first-half buzzer went off and as Okongwu was absorbing an uncalled foul, he slammed the ball against the backboard and into the hoop. Without the glass, that shot might have careened into the L.A. skyline that one can see from the many available seats at Galen Center. It was a stunning example of Okongwu’s strength. It also gave the Trojans a 26-21 halftim...

Experience And Influence: The New Status Symbols

How we earn status has evolved from owning things to living unique experiences. In 1988, Professor Belk argued that our self was “extended” by our possessions. The notion of extended self is “a superficially masculine and Western metaphor comprising not only that which is seen as me (the ‘self’), but also what is seen as ‘mine’. . . . The more we believe we possess or are possessed by an object, the more a part of self it becomes.” Today, this extension of the self happens through experiences...
