LACMA RIDLEY-THOMAS 10 MIN, 13 SEC

In the most-watched race of yesterday’s election, charter school advocate Ref Rodriguez beat incumbent Bennett Kayser for the District 5 seat. More than $3 million from outside groups poured into the race. But it’s another politics and money story that’s grabbing headlines today. Propublica and the LA Times have been combing through the contents of the Sony email hack. Those emails are now searchable thanks to Wikileaks. And they hit upon a series of emails that show a cozy and lucrative relationship between LACMA officials, the chairman of Sony, and County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas.

ELON MUSK 14 MIN

Once upon a time, a man named Elon Musk envisioned rockets in space, cars that were electric, and a vacuum tube that hurtled people from San Francisco to Los Angeles in 30-minutes. Many called him crazy, but Musk believed. Today, at the age of 43, he is a millionaire many times over and after the success of SpaceX and Tesla, even the Hyperloop doesn’t seem so out there. More complicated is Musk’s personal life. He’s suffered the death of a child, been married three times (twice to the same woman), and has five children.
