It seems everything between Mountain Lion and iOS 6 will work together nicely. The only problem is Mountain Lion comes out next month, and iOS 6 won't until this fall. And likely as a result of that gap, Mountain Lion won't see any Facebook integration until then. Apple billed Facebook integration into its ecosystem as a pretty big part of its keynote presentation at the Worldwide Developers Conference on Monday, but that won't arrive on the iPhone until iOS 6 does this fall.

Don Murray is a man of convictions. When he was 19 and working as an usher at CBS in New York City for $17 a week while attending the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Murray turned down an offer to sign a contract with Universal for a whopping $150 a week. FOR THE RECORD: Don Murray: An article in the March 7 Calendar section about a UCLA film event honoring actor Don Murray gave the actor's age as 83. He is 84. "They could put you in whatever picture they wanted," explained the genial actor, 83, over the phone recently from his home in Santa Barbara.

The Rev. Will D. Campbell was a poor white boy from Mississippi who preached his first sermon from a pulpit stocked with a Bible from the Ku Klux Klan. But this son of the segregated South - a self-avowed "good ol' boy with crazy ideas" - did not follow the conventional career path for a Southern Baptist minister in the 1950s. He became the only white man admitted to the founding meeting of the seminal Southern Christian Leadership Conference in 1957. That same year, when nine black students attempted to integrate Central High School in Little Rock, Ark., he was one of three white ministers who guided them past a fierce white mob. Later, when civil rights workers targeted Nashville lunch counters, he rounded up sympathetic whites to nudge the business owners toward integration.

WASHINGTON - Fans of the Jet City Rollergirls are hearing public announcements about Obamacare when they go to the roller derby track north of Seattle. Univision, the nation's largest Spanish-language television network, is airing half-hour specials about healthy living and educating viewers about how to sign up for coverage under President Obama's health law. And tax preparers at thousands of Jackson Hewitt and H&R Block offices are talking to their customers about how to enroll in the new insurance plans sold through the law's online marketplaces.

He once sued the school district. Now district officials may name a school after him. Santa Ana Unified School District board members today will consider naming a planned space-saver school after Gonzalo Mendez, who filed a lawsuit 51 years ago that led to the integration of Orange County schools. Mendez, who died in 1964, originally sued the Westminster school district, opposing the segregation of Latinos.

The state of Mississippi on Tuesday made public the files, secret for four decades, of the now-defunct State Sovereignty Commission, an agency formed to oppose desegregation and long accused of spying on and harassing civil-rights activists in Mississippi from 1956 to 1977. The files showed that the commission had, indeed, spied on such figures as civil-rights leaders Medgar Evers and Martin Luther King Jr.

President Pieter W. Botha on Monday endorsed an advisory panel's recommendation that racially separate neighborhoods be given the option of opening themselves to all races. However, he backed away from a second suggestion made by the panel: repeal of the law segregating facilities such as beaches and swimming pools. He said such action would be irresponsible without further study of the consequences and possible "replacement legislation."

The government said Tuesday that it will integrate all South African police training starting in January to ensure that white and black officers perform impartially. Basic training of the 70,000-strong force, more than half of it black, is now segregated, although further training of existing police officers is increasingly integrated, an official said. Anti-apartheid activists accuse the police of favoring moderate groups in clashes involving Nelson Mandela's African National Congress.

Re "A Painful Lesson in Division," Aug. 28 I experienced racial integration as a teacher in a rural northwest Alabama 12th-grade school. The first year it was voluntary because there were all-black schools available to students. I had one black student in each of my five 11th-grade English classes. There were no problems. A few more joined them the following year. Everything went smoothly. Two black teachers joined our faculty the next year. Still no problems. When the all-black schools were closed, we were fully integrated and everything was as normal as it had always been.
Efforts by conservatives to separate men and women during basic military training were dealt a major--and perhaps lasting--setback Wednesday as a panel convened by Congress declared that newly inducted troops would be far better off in close quarters. Emboldened by a series of sexual scandals in training camps, congressional conservatives pushed hard in the last two years for greater segregation and last fall set up a study panel that they hoped would further advance their case.

When Morrie Turner was just a cartoon-doodling kid in Oakland, he wrote a fan letter to the creator of the popular comic strip "Terry and the Pirates. " In return, Milton Caniff, who later created "Steve Canyon," sent young Turner a typed, six-page personal reply with pointers on story lines and drawing. "It changed my whole life," Turner told the San Francisco Chronicle in 2005. "The fact that he took the time to share all that with a kid, a stranger, didn't impress me all that much at the time.

One of the most beguiling folk records of the year has the bonus of ferrying along a Joel and Ethan Coen plot line. The songs within the brothers' new "Inside Llewyn Davis" move from balladry to blues to ancient British folk, adding an extra layer of lyricism and revealing a portal to another storytelling realm. The selections and performances highlight a moment when a perfectly realized stanza sung honestly in a smoky cafe could produce an audible gasp, reverberate throughout New York's Greenwich Village and, with luck or if your name were Bob Dylan, American culture.

Bloomberg LP finds itself in a struggle to define the proper role of the news division in the financial colossus, which makes most of its money by renting terminals to portfolio managers, traders and analysts that give them access to real-time market data, analytics, world news and a trading platform. First came reports - denied by Bloomberg - that the news division spiked a story on the Chinese elite - a follow-up to an earlier, award-winning investigation that had angered the Communist Party leaders - because the new story would further provoke the government.

Ask any former NHL player who's about 45 or older if he ever had a concussion and he's likely to say he got his bell rung once or twice but went back out and played. It was unthinkable not to. Stoicism was - and is - as much a part of the game as ice. Medical knowledge about the terrible effects of repeated brain injuries has since advanced. It's flippant to joke about brain injuries after learning of the neurological and behavioral problems experienced by Bob Probert and Derek Boogaard and other NFL players who were posthumously found to have chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or degenerative brain disease.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Monday appointed Francesca Grifo as the agency's official in charge of scientific integrity. In addition to overseeing the scientific integrity program, Grifo will chair an internal committee that deals with issues of standards, transparency and scientific freedom. In 2009 President Obama issued a directive that ordered federal agencies to refocus on science and remove political pressure from science policy. The EPA, which incorporates scientific analysis into its regulations, frequently comes under fire for decisions opposed by industry and challenged by other scientists.

The push to bring technology into cars is a slow crawl for many automakers, particularly because of one wrenching issue that has come up in nearly every discussion at the L.A. Auto Show: distracted driving. “It's very important to get that phone in the center console and closed up,” Charles Koch, manager of new business development for American Honda Motor Co., said at the Connected Car Expo this week. But getting users to drop their smartphones means finding ways to fill dashboard screens with more apps -- maps, taking pictures and text messaging chief among them.

The Ocean View School District this week started holding neighborhood meetings to tell parents about a racial integration plan that would close one school and reorganize at least three others. The informal meetings, which began Wednesday, precede two public hearings that the Board of Trustees has scheduled for next month before it decides whether to adopt the integration proposal. Upcoming neighborhood meetings, all of which will begin at 7 p.m.

A former whites-only school that was forced to admit blacks has suspended plans to fight the decision in South Africa's highest court. "There's a formal withdrawal before the judges. The case will not proceed," Constitutional Court Registrar Martie Nienhaber said Monday.

The tiny congregation in Los Feliz looked long and hard for a new pastor - someone joyful and brave, committed and kind, welcoming to all and unwilling to talk down to any. Pretty much from its founding in 1905, Mount Hollywood Congregational Church has charted its own course: integrating early, protesting injustice often, trying hard to change the world for the better. Its 50 or so active members, while diverse in age, ethnicity and background, are very much in sync in their spiritual style.
