 SLIDESHOW: Victoria's Secret 2010 fashion show

By Andrea Mandell, USA TODAY

NEW YORK - Call it the year of the hot mommy. Behind many of the biggest names on Victoria's Secret's supersized catwalk Wednesday night was a pint-sized tot, waiting at home.

"There are so many girls who have babies," said Alessandra Ambrosio, 29, backstage before the fashion show, not yet changed into the pink silk robe and flip-flops handed to all the models. Her daughter Anja, 2, is starting to recognize Mom's work. "If I show her a Victoria's Secret catalogue or a campaign, she will know which one is me," she said proudly. "And she poses already."

Report projects impact of huge storm in California

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A new report details the projected impact on California if a catastrophic winter storm causes extensive flooding and landslides.

The report released Thursday by the U.S. Geological Survey creates a realistic scenario to raise questions about the ability of authorities to handle such a disaster and is to be used for preparedness.

A team of 117 researchers considered a hypothetical winter storm similar to a 45-day storm that devastated California in 1861 and 1862.

They found that such a storm could cause hundreds of landslides, flooding stretching 300 miles long in the Central Valley and serious damage in the state's major population centers.

In all, researchers estimated the losses and damages could cost on the order of $725 billion.

The New Professional: Party tights and forgetting

OK, so I lied. But I didn't do it on purpose. You see, when I wrote this guest post for Classy Career Girl about a month ago, I actually wrote that I cheated three times.  However, when I went back to add links, I could only find two links. I tried and tried but could not for the life of me remember what my third cheat was. Had I counted the two pieces of my skirt suit? Unlikely. So I changed it to "twice" and linked both cheats I could remember. But the third cheat just would not get out of my mind. Had I just imagined it?

One killed, one injured in Highway 50 crash

RANCHO CORDOVA, CA - A Wednesday morning crash on westbound Highway 50 between the Mather Field and Zinfindal Road exits left one man dead and his passenger with injuries, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Office Jasper Begay said the victims were in a stalled maroon Ford Tempo on the highway shoulder when their car was hit. The driver of a silver Chevrolet Tahoe was looking to the left while merging onto the highway and struck the back of the Ford.

The victims' names have not been released.

The SUV's driver sustained minor injuries. He was not cited at this time, Begay said. It did not appear alcohol or drugs were involved.

Students learn a valuable lesson about bullying

FAIR OAKS, CA - Students at Will Rogers Middle school learned a valuable lesson about bullying during assemblies Wednesday.

Middle school students attended "We Care Assemblies" during their physical education classes. Through group sessions, role-play, and a skit, the students learned how to make positive choices and take action against bullying.

"We're just trying to be proactive. A lot of things are going on in the country as we know and we want to empower our children to know how to make right decisions at the right time," said principal Gloria Ervin.

The school will hold other anti-bullying assemblies throughout the year.
