According to an announcement on the starwars.com website on Thursday, writing duties for the upcoming installment will be taken over by director J.J. Abrams and Kasdan, the latter previously just a consultant on the project.

Since joining the Los Angeles Police Commission last month, Steve Soboroff has been making calls to some of the city's deepest pockets, asking them to pony up the $1 million he says he needs to jump-start an ambitious project: outfitting LAPD officers with small video cameras that would record their encounters with people. His unorthodox approach to fundraising for the Los Angeles Police Department has paid dividends and got its latest boost Tuesday when the Dodgers and members of the team's ownership group announced a $250,000 donation to the effort.

APPLE COMPUTER DID SOMETHING unusual this week: It acknowledged a mistake and changed course. That's not quite as big a deal as the pope admitting Galileo was right about the whole Earth-orbiting-the-sun thing, but it's close.

It also enables them to download tunes and TV episodes from Apple's online store.

They call it Moving Day, and that term took on multiple meanings during a round that Phil Mickelson — and those who witnessed his brilliance — will not soon forget. For starters, Mickelson moved up the leaderboard, from a five-way tie for third place into sole possession of second with a five-under-par 67 that featured eagles on the 13th and 14th holes. The cheers after Mickelson holed the second eagle — with a pitching wedge from 140 yards — practically made the earth shake.

Chromecast, Google's $35 digital video receiver, appears to be sold out online. The 2-inch device plugs into users' television sets to stream content from the cloud. It connects to users' smartphones, tablets and laptop computers to show content from Google Play, YouTube, Netflix and a few other outlets. Google unveiled the device this week, and Internet users quickly started snatching them up, in part because it costs about a third of the price of the Apple TV, its rival.

Doc Rivers is considered one of the best coaches in the NBA, and now he'll be coaching the Clippers. It just took a while to make that happen. Almost two weeks of haggling, negotiating and wrangling were required for the Clippers to finally pry Rivers away from the Boston Celtics, for the price of a first-round draft pick in 2015 that will not be lottery-protected. And it took several more hours for Rivers and his representatives to finalize the deal Tuesday with Clippers owner Donald Sterling before the NBA was able to approve it. There were details and language in the contract that needed to be cleared up before Rivers agreed to a three-year, $21-million deal - the same number of years and dollar figure that were left on his Boston contract.

Teemu, the facilitator? Teemu Selanne, with so many skills at his disposal, turned playmaker Friday night with a deft and dazzling performance at Honda Center. Selanne's three assists sparked the Ducks to a 3-1 victory against the Minnesota Wild. The newly formed combination — which had Bobby Ryan centering Kyle Palmieri and Selanne — was responsible for eight points. Ryan Getzlaf had the other, an assist on Ryan's power-play goal late in the third period. It was Selanne's first three-assist game in nearly two years.

George Michael must have a lot of weighty matters on his mind these days, now that he's ditched Andrew Ridgeley, his longtime partner in Wham!, to chart his own solo path. Michael was always that duo's more creative and prolific member, which is a polite way of saying he did mostly everything. He always seemed like a solo artist even before he made the big move.

The Dodgers started their season with James Loney at first base and ended it with Adrian Gonzalez there. They upgraded from Dee Gordon to Hanley Ramirez at shortstop and from Juan Rivera to Shane Victorino in left field. But it didn't matter, at least as far as this year was concerned. These high-priced Dodgers finished where the bankrupt Dodgers of last season finished - out of the playoffs. The Guggenheim-backed Dodgers were officially eliminated from postseason contention Tuesday night, as they fell to the San Francisco Giants, 4-3, at Dodger Stadium.
