FROM THIS EPISODE

AltaSea is a project to transform a 100-year-old pier at the Port of Los Angeles into something new and different. Supporters promise the world's only "ocean-based ideas and innovation center" for an ultimate cost of $500 million. Today, 500 people gathered for the latest phase of development.

Also, San Fernando Democrat Brad Sherman talks about Benjamin Netanyahyu's upcoming speech to Congress, and we hear from a self-declared "job pirate" who's tried 82 different kinds of working.
