USC Viterbi | Undergraduate Admission

From Stars Hollow to Los Angeles, Small Town to Movie Set

Lights, Camera, Action!

Coming from a town with a population of under 7000 people, Los Angeles would be filled with those 3 words. I could not imagine anything other than a film reel, and directors parked at every corner. Hopping off the plane at LAX I found myself eager to enter the movie set that would be the next 4 years of my life. I won’t say that I was disappointed, but rather I was challenged. I found that a director was not seated at every corner of the LA streets, but I did find that if I looked, I could explore LA through film, and I took it on as a challenge to myself. As a Cinematic Arts Minor, I set my mind to finding these film sets through locations in Los Angeles, expanding my knowledge of film, but also this city that I was now calling home.

The Last Bookstore

As I searched through my movie repertoire, I stumbled upon the film, Under The Silver Lake , though a more indie film, I enjoyed the local Los Angeles sets used. I found myself stumbling upon the Last Bookstore in downtown Los Angeles for my birthday to explore the set where Andrew Garfield found himself searching for clues. I too was searching, walking through the maze of books to stumble upon the locations in which the shots were taken. Traversing through the various rooms, floors and shelves of books, I found myself immersed in the pages. Though I had come to explore a film set, I found myself finding my favorite bookstore. From the vintage books with tales in their spines beyond the words on the page, to the NYT bestsellers. Through these novels I learned more about Los Angeles from its people to its culture.

The Griffith Observatory

Los Angeles is known for its film setting, yet the one that my roommate told me that must top my list was the Griffith Observatory, better known as one of the sets for La La Land. She could not have been more correct, as I entered the observatory, I felt myself being immersed in the film. The locations walked by actors were being touched by my own shoes, and though I was not able to dance through the air, I felt myself lifted off the ground. The architectural marvel was incredible to experience, and more so the connection to the stars. The connection that this observatory had to astronomy amazed me. I entered this observatory to walk in the steps of the La La Land stars, however, I found myself discovering the connection that Los Angeles has to the stars above, learning about constellations, looking through a telescope, and mapping planet movement. Once again, through a tour of a movie set I learned more about the city and its connection to the cosmos. 

The last location encompassed the most film sets, and I found that it was my favorite: the campus of the University of Southern California, or as the students fondly call it: USC. From Grace Ford Salvatori Hall being used to document Mark Zuckerberg’s journey to creating Facebook in The Social Network to the set for Elle Woods to walk along in Legally Blonde USC truly was the movie set that I imagined when I moved to Los Angeles. I even found that it brought my home to me. My small town in Connecticut is the home to the inspiration for the TV show Gilmore Girls , and it was a shock to me that the graduation that I had seen in the show that took place “Connecticut” was in fact the front of our very own Doheny Library. Through the art of cinema, I hope to uncover more of LA’s hidden treasures.

The Unique Burial of a Child of Early Scythian Time at the Cemetery of Saryg-Bulun (Tuva)

<< Previous page

Pages:  379-406

In 1988, the Tuvan Archaeological Expedition (led by M. E. Kilunovskaya and V. A. Semenov) discovered a unique burial of the early Iron Age at Saryg-Bulun in Central Tuva. There are two burial mounds of the Aldy-Bel culture dated by 7th century BC. Within the barrows, which adjoined one another, forming a figure-of-eight, there were discovered 7 burials, from which a representative collection of artifacts was recovered. Burial 5 was the most unique, it was found in a coffin made of a larch trunk, with a tightly closed lid. Due to the preservative properties of larch and lack of air access, the coffin contained a well-preserved mummy of a child with an accompanying set of grave goods. The interred individual retained the skin on his face and had a leather headdress painted with red pigment and a coat, sewn from jerboa fur. The coat was belted with a leather belt with bronze ornaments and buckles. Besides that, a leather quiver with arrows with the shafts decorated with painted ornaments, fully preserved battle pick and a bow were buried in the coffin. Unexpectedly, the full-genomic analysis, showed that the individual was female. This fact opens a new aspect in the study of the social history of the Scythian society and perhaps brings us back to the myth of the Amazons, discussed by Herodotus. Of course, this discovery is unique in its preservation for the Scythian culture of Tuva and requires careful study and conservation.

Want a landscape that will outlast climate change? Plant these Ice Age survivors

California native plants grow out of a tar pit with glaciers and wildfires in the distance.

  • Copy Link URL Copied!

Welcome to July! I know it’s hot, but wasn’t it just last month we were grumbling about the gloom?

Researchers say our bodies deal with high heat better after a period of acclimation , so try doing something lightly strenuous outside every day, like a 15-minute walk, and stay well hydrated, so you can take advantage of the many plant-related activities listed below.

But for now, let’s talk climate change — some 13,000 years ago, near the end of the Pleistocene epoch (known as the Ice Age to lay folk), when most of the Earth’s large mammals went extinct and, at least in Southern California, Homo sapiens set the region ablaze.

Inadvertently, of course, but fossil evidence from the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum, Lake Elsinore and other parts of Southern California indicate that about 13,000 years ago this region had an unprecedented number of wildfires over a roughly 300-year span. Researchers believe those fires were created by a perfect storm of climate changes — increasing temperatures, long drought, a fast-shrinking number of grazing animals (who once ate all that flammable flora) and an increase in humans, according to a paper published in Science last year.

An active excavation site topped by reflective liquid asphalt at the La Brea Tar Pits.

Sound familiar? Well, researchers at the Tar Pits agree. Paleobotanist Jessie George and her colleagues think we can learn a lot about managing today’s climate change by studying the plants that survived the last one.

57 California native plants that survived the Ice Age to live on today

Which Southern California native plants survived climate change and mass extinctions 13,000 years ago and still live today? La Brea Tar Pits researchers compiled a list.

June 28, 2024

They’re compiling a list of the native plants trapped in the Tar Pits’ liquid asphalt 13,000 years ago that are still around today, from the surprising — American dogwood ( Cornus sericea ) — to the stalwarts (ceanothus, toyon, coast live oaks and California sycamore) to the endearing (California poppy) and the obvious (poison oak and California blackberry, apparently tough and annoying enough to join other pesky urban survivors like cockroaches and coyotes).

Jessie George in front of a cabinet holding flora found at La Brea Tar Pits.

One of their goals is to update the Tar Pit’s Pleistocene Garden of California native plants, created by docent Richard Simun in 2004, to one that more accurately reflects the region’s Ice Age flora still around today.

Researchers have been hauling fossils out of the La Brea Tar Pits’ asphalt-soaked sediment for decades, mostly from “megafauna,” i.e., large mammals that went extinct. (Interesting note: Fossils from the Tar Pits are easily identifiable because they’ve acquired that mahogany hue known as “La Brea Brown” from millenna of soaking in asphalt.)

But every so often, the excavators find a cone or seed or semi-preserved leaf and text the botanists to come take a look, George said. Early researchers weren’t so interested in the plant pieces they found and she doesn’t like to think of the things that were just tossed away as they hunted for the sexier remains of sabertooth cats, dire wolves, American lions and their herbivore prey — bison, giant ground sloths, Western horses and camels.

Floor-to-ceiling shelves of ancient animal bones fill the La Brea Tar Pits museum collection.

That early bias is clear in the museum’s collections, which feature long corridors stacked floor to ceiling with drawers full of camel vertebrae, for instance, or sabertooth knuckles, versus a small single cabinet filled with the mostly tiny plant remnants saved since excavation began at the Tar Pits in the early 1900s.

But as tiny and fragile as they are, those plant remnants tell an important story, George said. Some 50,000 years ago Southern California was largely a cool, wet woodlands, but by the end of the Ice Age around 11,000 years ago, the landscape had shifted to a dryer, more open area of shrubby chaparral frequently consumed by fire, much as it is today.

The megafauna didn’t survive that change, but smaller animals like coyotes, mule deer, raccoons and turkey vultures adapted and managed to hang on, and so did many plants.

12 can’t-miss nurseries for people who love SoCal’s fragrant native plants

Here are the best retail native plant nurseries in Southern California to help you create a habitat for birds and pollinators in your yard or even on a patio.

April 12, 2023

The list is a work in progress, and there are only 57 identified so far — trees (or tall shrubs) like California sycamore, coast live oak, blue elderberry, Monterey cypress, big berry manzanita and Monterey pine; grasses like barley and sedge; flowers like blue-eyed grass, asters, sunflowers and purple owl’s clover; and even edibles like wild grapes, miner’s lettuce and Southern California black walnuts.

Photos of fossilized plant life.

Some of those survivors, like Monterey and Bishop pines, would not fare well in Los Angeles today, George said, but still live in cooler, wetter areas like California’s central coast. But many others, like our golden poppies and ceanothus, still grow in the wild areas around L.A. Knowing the resilient history of these plants, she said, and using them in our landscapes could help us better weather the climate changes happening now.

“La Brea gives you a 50,000-year context into how those plants have done over time. It’s like an experimental laboratory, where you get to see vulnerability or resilience of species through time,” George said. “It’s a powerful tool for urban planning as we go forward.”

Photos of fossilized camel bones and plant life.

A final sobering thought: Between 14,000 and 13,000 years ago, the average air temperatures around Lake Elsinore increased by 5.6 degrees Celsius, according to the research, and rose another 4.4 degrees Celsius over the next 1,200 years.

To put that into perspective, data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) show that temperatures in SoCal have increased more than 2 degrees Celsius — roughly 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit — over the last 100 years, a rate of temperature increase significantly higher than the ones that accompanied the region’s mass extinctions and rampant wildfires all those millennia ago.

At that rate, how will oaks and poppies and all us remaining fauna fare in the next few centuries? Will anyone still be around to care?

Heat tips and a plea

Our plants don’t like big heat changes any more than we do, especially when they live in outdoor containers.

I recommend a story I wrote a few years ago listing experts’ 12 tips for helping plants survive a heat wave . The best suggestions are to water your plants deeply before excessive heat events, but don’t drown them by overwatering. Plants shut down when it gets too hot to protect themselves, but that also means they can’t absorb water. If your plant is drooping on a hot day, but the soil is still moist, just wait to water until the morning, after the plant has had time to revive.

Now for my plea: I know it’s July, but holiday gift guides wait for no reporter and we’re already starting to compile our lists. My assignment is the best gifts for Southern California gardeners and plant parents. Those gifts can be anything plant-related — from tools and seedlings to clothing and experiences — as long as they’re pertinent to SoCal residents and mostly available locally (we don’t just want a list full of Amazon recommendations).

If you have suggestions, send them to [email protected], with the subject line: Plant gift ideas. My gratitude will be boundless.

What we’re reading

Are squirrels taking over the world? That’s how it feels sometimes in my garden, where those saucy, fluffy-tailed rodents reign, seemingly without a care. My colleague Adam Tschorn took up arms against his furry foes when they emptied his bird feeder, and the result, a year later, is excellent reading.

Was Prince inspired by SoCal’s jacaranda blooms when he wrote “Purple Rain”? Because that’s all I could think of when my parents’ giant jacaranda bloomed every spring, sending cascades of purple flowers all over the yard. Some people hate the gooey mess those flowers leave behind, and others, like me, find it mesmerizing. Either way, reporter Lisa Boone has compiled a handy guide to places where you can revel in the blooms — or stay far away.

Speaking of Lisa Boone, she’s written another inspiring turf-removal story about a family who created a colorful “showstopping” low-water garden in Northeast L.A. where their toddler son delights in the bees.

“Aging yuppies in neon beachwear stand before a green wall with the catchphrase ‘You have changed ... so has cannabis.’” That’s the opening to an investigative article by The Times and cannabis industry newsletter WeedWeek , indicating that those “changes” aren’t what many expected from their legal, state-regulated weed: alarming levels of pesticides in cannabis products .
