UCLA Coach Jim Mora is expected to be on the short list for the Washington job that was vacated when Steve Sarkisian left for USC. Mora, who played for the Huskies and was a graduate assistant under Don James, has expressed interest in the job before. Mora was recruiting Monday and would not comment. UCLA's only official comment came from a school spokesman who said, "Jim Mora is our football coach. " However, a person familiar with the situation said the Mora-to-Washington scenario is one that UCLA Athletic Director Dan Guerrero has feared since USC fired Lane Kiffin as coach in September.

It doesn't take more than a few seconds to eyeball the photographs of Democratic nominee-to-be Al Gore's so-called "short list" of likely running mates to recognize something strikingly similar about these faces. They are pretty pale. Excuse me, but don't the movers and shakers of the Democratic Party know any non-Caucasians? Is there not a single distinguished individual with a complexion darker than Dick Gephardt's who could be deemed worthy of a little public speculation?

Metallica and Run-DMC top the list of nominees for induction next year into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The others on the short list for induction include Jeff Beck, the Stooges, Little Anthony & the Imperials, Wanda Jackson, Chic, Bobby Womack and War. The Rock Hall is dealing with the relative dearth of worthy acts newly eligible for membership by leaning heavily on acts previously passed over for membership. Metallica and Run-DMC are the only '80s-vintage nominees being drafted to the institution, which requires 25 years to have passed since performers released their first recordings.

This post has been updated. Please see note at bottom for details. Eleanor Catton took the 2013 Man Booker Prize for "The Luminaries" at an awards ceremony in London on Tuesday night. At age 28, Catton is the youngest novelist ever to win the prestigious prize -- and her novel, at more than 800 pages, is the longest book. When she accepted, Catton said, " 'The Luminaries' was, from the start, a publisher's nightmare.” She thanked her editors for “striking a balance between making art and making money,” the Washington Post reports.

WASHINGTON - President Obama's choice for replacing Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke probably comes down to a quiet consensus builder, who would be a historic pick, or one considered brilliant but difficult to work with. Through unprecedented policy moves and public outreach, Bernanke has dramatically expanded the role and the profile of the nation's central bank. But neither he nor the White House have indicated whether he would seek a third term or be renominated. It is widely expected, though, that Bernanke will step down when his current term expires in January.

CHICAGO - It wasn't the longest cross-examination, but Jarome Iginla looked somewhat relieved to be leaving Chicago, not just because he was a minus-one and the Calgary Flames lost 2-0 to the Blackhawks. Of course, the questions about his future will only follow him back home to Calgary. He was not available after the morning skate so he spoke to the assembled media shortly after the loss. Recent reports indicated that Iginla, who has a no-trade clause, had submitted a short list of teams where he would consent to play, apparently including the Blackhawks and the Kings.

Of the annual awards in 59 categories to be presented May 6 when the James Beard Foundation announces winners at New York's Avery Fisher Hall, L.A. chefs received only four nominations. Four out of 59, and two of them are included in the same nomination. Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo, who co-own Animal and Son of a Gun , are nominated for Best Chef West. And Suzanne Goin of Lucques and Nancy Silverton of Pizzeria Mozza are competing for Outstanding Chef. Which prompts the question that comes up every year among L.A. fooderati: Are Southern California chefs overlooked?

Jackson has seen quite a few, most famously Dennis Rodman and most recently Ron Artest , with Radmanovic definitely in the mix for top-five consideration. "I've got a couple on this team that have a chance to make it," Jackson said Sunday. "[Artest] is an interesting, very interesting, player. Sasha [ Vujacic ]

The Lakers announced on Friday that Dwight Howard will travel back to Los Angeles on Friday to undergo a "PRP procedure" on Saturday. PRP is short for "platelet rich plasma. " Howard will first have some of his own blood removed and spun in a centrifuge.  The resulting plasma, which contains a high dose of Howard's own platelets to promote healing, will be injected into his shoulder. Howard will miss the Lakers' visit to the Minnesota Timberwolves but will fly out to rejoin the team in Detroit.  There's a short recovery time after the nonsurgical PRP procedure. It's unclear if Howard will be ready to play against the Pistons on Sunday.
