Russ Davis said he didn't want to name drop after his Vanguard University women's basketball team earned an impressive victory over visiting Westminster College of Utah on Saturday. But he went ahead and did so, nonetheless. "I have to give an assist to my friend Geno Auriemma," Davis said after his No. 3-ranked Lions spanked the No. 4-ranked Griffins, 73-51, with what he called his 5-0 team's best performance of the young season. "We went to dinner [Friday] night. " Davis explained that Auriemma, who has guided the Connecticut women to seven NCAA titles and coached the U.S. women's Olympic team to a gold medal at the London Olympics last summer, was telling Davis about the Huskies' victory on Thursday and theorizing that he may be giving his Huskies players too much to think about.

One can't but notice the blatant corruption and hypocrisy that has become the new global norm. Not just for the elite leaders, but for the lesser leaders as well. In the case of Egypt's uprising, the Egyptian people want to see an end to the political corruption and the removal of their president. President Obama is telling Egypt's president to listen to will of the people. Great advice from an eloquent hypocrite who refuses to listen to his own countrymen, who are questioning and objecting to his socialist leadership policies, which threaten to collapse our county.

I don't usually read advice columns. If I need to tell my great-grandmother to lay off the Cuervo or tell a co-worker I don't want to attend her nudist wedding, I can find the words without any help. Besides, as anyone with a computer keyboard knows, it's more fun to give advice than to listen to it. But when I'm flipping through the newspaper on a lazy Sunday, anything can catch my eye, as did this sentence from a recent "Ask Amy" advice column: "Reach out to whomever is in charge of the arrangements.

Recently, as my oldest daughter and I were returning home from her tennis lesson, she asked me quite plainly, "Daddy, what are your goals?" A strange, but profound, question from an 8-year-old. In the surprise of the moment, I responded that I want her and her younger sister to grow up to be kind and generous people. Simple, direct and honest. OK, maybe I punted a bit with that answer. As a parent, I also want my children to be thoughtful and collaborative, confident and empathetic, proud and giving.

Young Chang Nancy Robison and her husband Bob laugh good naturedly about how children just don't seem to accept advice from their own mother. From an uncle, maybe, but rarely from mom. They chuckle like people who've been around the block, like members of an older, wiser generation who have accepted their roles and figured out how to be heard. Nancy Robison has. She got around the problem -- the one where information goes straight into a child's left ear and then out the right -- through writing.

No doubt the hundreds of Newport-Mesa students who tossed their caps in the air in graduation ceremonies Thursday have received more advice over the last few days than they really wanted to hear. But that's not going to stop us from giving them a little more. After all, we were grads once too. Yeah, yeah, that was a long time ago, but that doesn't mean the lessons we learned can't be applied today. So here goes. The lesson we learned is don't listen to all those people giving you advice.

Hanging near his diploma from the University of Miami School of Medicine, Dr. Jorge Rodriguez displays a less conventional credential at his internal medicine practice in Newport Beach. A 3-by-4-foot, black-and-white photograph of Whoopi Goldberg sitting on a taxi cab takes center stage in his office, inscribed with a message on the AIDS epidemic. "Things are better, but honey … it ain't over yet," reads the inscription. It's a fitting dedication to the HIV specialist and president of AIDS Services Foundation Orange County, a nonprofit foundation that provides care and services to people with HIV, as well as educational outreach.

Mark Gleason We asked our parent panelists: As the school year heads toward the end, many high school students are making plans for proms and grad-night festivities. This always raises the danger levels for students who may be tempted to drink and drive. What advice do you have for students to have fun but be safe at their end-of-high-school celebrations? I have a lot of great advice. Since I've already lived through the whole teen and young adult years and have taken extensive mental notes, I know exactly what to do and what not to do. I learned a whole heck of a lot during that time -- about people, situations, choices, directions and life in general.

"A lot of times," he said, "if you keep your mouth shut, you'll learn a lot more. " And with that, the CMHS varsity football team listened, as Alexander, the former NFL football player, talked about his life and provided direction.

Ahoy! The weather is looking good for this weekend with afternoon sunshine breaking through the clouds. We will have patchy fog in the mornings that should burn off before noontime. The daytime air temperature will remain mild with the highs reaching only the low 70s, and nighttime temperatures dipping to the low 50s creating a 20-degree temperature swing. The seas will increase a foot by the weekend to three feet from the west-northwest with lazy one-foot swells from the south that should not create a washing machine for those cruising in the ocean.

Costa Mesa High School's drama students will soon lift the curtain on a musical that revels in the backstage drama of beauty pageants, and on Thursday they researched the real thing. Angela Perez-Baraquio, who Miss America 2001 and the first Asian American to win the title, coached actors on the mindset of a winner, told stories of accused sabotage and stolen underwear. And, of course, she taught them the pageant wave. Elbow elbow, wrist wrist, turn the light bulb, she said, "You can mix that up. " The student performers laughed.
