The British artist Banksy has made a name for himself as a graffiti artist who's stealthily created provocative pieces around the world.
Now the L.A.-based auction house Julien's has announced that it's auctioning off one of his works — a piece called "Flower Girl" — which once graced the wall of a gas station on the corner of Beverly Boulevard and La Brea. Julien's estimates the piece will bring in a whole lot of cash. http://kp.cc/1a8SRnU

In a new study by researcher Dr. Hannes Schwandt, life satisfaction peaks at the average ages of 23 and 69. People become discontent mid-life because of disappointments at unfulfilled expectations. Often, young people are over-optimistic about their lives and become frustrated when reality proves to be less than ideal. However, when people get past these regrets and have lower expectations, people become more satisfied with their lives. http://kp.cc/1cky2oR

In a 20,000 square foot shop and warehouse in North Hollywood, Chris Gilman and his team at Global Effects make just about any costume or prop you could imagine.
Gilman's warehouse at times feels like a history book and a fantasy movie at the same time. Down one aisle, you'll find a replica of the inside of a lunar module, down another, one of the martians from "Mars Attacks." http://kp.cc/1aAu90z

The natural processes that bring sand to most beaches in Southern California have been disrupted by development and other human activities.
"Beach nourishment" projects are replacing some of that sand, primarily on beaches in L.A. County. But the efforts are replacing only about half of what is lost each year. http://kp.cc/12Zbiqc

To become a U.S. citizen, all immigrants must pass a naturalization test.
But native-born residents do not need to pass the test. Which led us to wonder: How many existing citizens would pass the test if they had to? (It takes five years from the time an immigrant receives a green card — i.e. becomes a permanent legal resident — until he or she may apply to become a naturalized citizen.)
We've created a quiz, below, with sample questions of the type that appear on the actual naturalization test. Try it out and see if you'd pass. Let us know in the comments and be honest! #projectcitizen http://kp.cc/17TYA0T

When a bridge fell in Washington last month it rekindled questions about the state of our nation's infrastructure.
That span over the Skagit river had been rated both "functionally obsolete" and "fracture critical" prior to collapse. Right now in California there are more than 600 bridges labeled either functionally obsolete, fracture critical or "structurally deficient." http://kp.cc/12ggTnm

News broke yesterday that James Gandolfini, who played Tony Soprano on the long-running HBO smash hit “The Sopranos,” died Wednesday in an emergency room in Rome, where he was vacationing.
Gandolfini joined us in the AirTalk studios on May 13, 2011, while he was in Los Angeles acting in “God of Carnage” at the Ahmanson Theater. Ten minutes into the interview, Larry turned the conversation to the character of Tony Soprano and what the character means to him now, four years after the show’s final episode, and Gandolfini’s answer reflected the complexity of his own character. http://kp.cc/105kCI4

When you hear the word Soylent, what image pops into your head? A dystopian future where people are recycled into tasty little green treats, perhaps?

+Sony officially launched the #Playstation 4 on Monday, and they’re coming after Microsoft’s #Xbox One — hard.
For starters, the new PlayStation 4 costs $399, putting the PS4’s price point $100 under that of the Xbox One at $499. However, what may be most notable is all of the things Sony was quick to point out the PlayStation doesn’t do.

During the transition, Mayor elect Eric Garcetti says he's been out meeting with Angelenos. The answers to the city's problems, he believes, won't come from experts at City Hall, but from people who live and work in the city. "They have the answers," he says. http://kp.cc/19i2i3D

The Chicago Sun Times laid off its entire photography staff last week, leaving nearly 30 people out of a job. These included Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists, many of them had been at the paper for years.
One of those people was photojournalist Rob Hart. He may no longer have a job with the paper, but that hasn't stopped him from taking photos. The second Rob left his job he began a new photo project, a Tumblr called Laid Off From the Sun-Times. http://kp.cc/16HLinx

Facebook loves to boast about how it has 1.11 billion monthly active users, but notice that they don't specify just how many of those users are human.
An estimated 100 million Facebook profiles are those belonging to brands, products and perhaps most beloved of all, people's pets. Social media has turned pets, especially cats, into some of the biggest sensations online.
One popular Internet cat personality is Colonel Meow, who currently boasts more than 166,000 Facebook fans and counting. He and his owner Anne Marie Avey live right here in Southern California. http://kp.cc/10WeZZK

Are you sitting down? Well you might want to stand up for this story.
The evolution of modern-day office desk set-ups looks a little something like this: First came the ergonomic desk chair, then the giant inflatable ball chair and the stand-up desk.
Now, believe it or not, some people are upping the healthy-while-working design by walking while they work at treadmill desks. Sounds like a recipe for spilled coffee, but the idea has been taking off in offices across the US. http://kp.cc/14v97dL

The Natural History Museum is celebrating its 100th year this summer. They’ll celebrate with two new exhibits, Becoming LA and Nature Gardens which will feature dozens of taxidermy animals including birds, possums, and cows.
Off-Ramp’s Mukta Mohan talked with taxidermist Allis Markham to find out what it’s like behind the scenes at the museum and to learn about the art of taxidermy. http://kp.cc/10JCFUa

The recent discovery of an extra $43 million in the Department of Transportation's budget shows just how little Los Angeles city leaders know about so-called "special funds," the chair of the Budget and Finance Committee said Wednesday.
So how much money is hidden in other LA city departments? http://kp.cc/11FGYmH

Central American immigrants flooded into the United States throughout the 1980s and '90s after fleeing brutal civil wars. Though the States provided a safe haven from the systematic violence of places like El Salvador and Guatemala, many of these new Americans carried with them the trauma of the violence they witnessed back home.
Award-winning photojournalist Donna DeCesare spent years traveling to Central America — El Salvador in particular — to capture the lives of those affected by civil war. She witnessed the aftermath of a government firing squad enforcing a curfew, the execution of Jesuit priests and images of young children unfazed by the violence around them. http://kp.cc/16kkAA9

File this one under Instant Backlash: Disney has filed several trademark applications for the phrase Dia de Los Muertos, as in the name of the traditional holiday that is celebrated in Mexico and elsewhere to honor the dead.
No, really. http://kp.cc/109CeCg

The pain and panic in Amanda Berry's 911 call yesterday is evidence of the severity of this case. Three woman held captive by three brothers for ten long years.
They were held in a home owned by Ariel Castro. Police say Castro and his brothers, Onil and Pedro -- all in their 50s -- conspired in the case. A six-year-old girl was also found who was reportedly born to Amanda Berry during the ordeal.
How did they keep it secret from neighbors, family or coworkers for so long? Why weren't the women able to escape sooner? What is the psychological profile of men like the Castros? How will these women recover? http://kp.cc/10n967J

The most trying thing about covering LA for an entire generation is seeing things that went badly the first time, come around again. Like, the execs at the Department of Water and Power sneaking Sparkletts dispensers into their headquarters. Or, more recently, LACMA’s leader deciding it’s his duty to tear the place down.
The plan is to demolish two-thirds of the museum and build a new one — for a mere $650 million.
Last time it was a mere $300 million the LACMA board wanted to redo the place. That was just eleven years ago. http://kp.cc/1297663

There was no need to reach out to the public for funds when it came to making a film version of Salman Rushdie's 1981 book "Midnight's Children." After all, the story was a proven hit.
The film version of "Midnight's Children" opens on Friday in LA. http://kp.cc/1074P8h

Tomorrow is the annual May Day rally that winds through DTLA in celebration of International Workers' Day.
This massive annual demonstration foregrounds issues including immigration reform and workers' rights, but it has also become a forum for people to trumpet their own social or legal cause of choice.
LADOT officials are expecting approximately 14,000 people at the May Day event.
Some streets may close as early as 6 a.m. on Wednesday and reopen as late as 9 p.m.
On top of these surface street closures, the 101 southbound ramp to Broadway will be closed starting at 11;30 a.m., as will the Spring Street offramp. http://kp.cc/10qzdt8

Journalist Michael Montgomery of the Center for Investigative Reporting has been covering marijuana here in California for several years now. You've heard him numerous times on this show, talking about everything from marijuana prices to federal crackdowns on pot dispensaries.
On a reporting trip here in Southern California, he had an experience which has changed the way he thought about this industry. That experience is chronicled in a new multimedia video as part of a series called Off the Record Stories: http://kp.cc/14J5LH3

"That's Joni listening to Clouds, which was the album that she was making at the time. She was listening to an acetate of her record prior to the release to make sure everything was right. Even though I was living with Joni, I didn't want her to know why I was taking the image. I'm actually shooting through one of those kitchen table chairs that have a hole in the top where you put your hand in to lift the chair. That's why you only see her partial face. My God, isn't she beautiful?" http://kp.cc/15S3skR

News of last week's horrific bombing at the finish line of the Boston Marathon broke rapidly and widely across mainstream media, the Internet and social media. As in all such fluid situations, a lot of bad information was mixed in with the good. A similar spread of misinformation accompanied the subsequent multi-agency response that resulted in the death of suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, and the capture of his younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
Here are the latest official developments in the case. As for the rest of the information out there, KPCC deconstructs some of the worst rumors and speculation and tries to find the truth behind them.
