Growing up, Christopher Navarro used to listen to himself talking on a hand-me-down Kmart cassette tape recorder, then re-record his voice until he had perfected the audio clip. Now 38, the Northern California native channels his childhood pastime in his career as an automatic dialogue replacement mixer, meaning he re-records dialogue by actors in a sound studio during post-production. Though his name won't be read among the official Oscar nominees this Sunday, the ADR mixer for Audio Head and the Formosa Group has his work in four of the nine best picture contenders: "Gravity," "12 Years a Slave," "Her" and "The Wolf of Wall Street.

When is a crime not a crime? Apparently when it happens on Wall Street. Ever since the financial meltdown of 2007, prosecutors and market regulators have struggled with how to handle evidence of a wide range of chicanery by Wall Street financial firms and banking giants - most of which are flourishing again, by the way, while American workers continue to struggle with high unemployment, high underemployment and stagnant wages. Some cases have been brought, but the federal government almost invariably lets the offending bank or firm off with a fine, and no admission of guilt.

Los Angeles is on the verge of transforming four miles of Figueroa from downtown to Exposition Park into the city's first "complete street," serving cars, buses, bicycles and pedestrians equally. The $20-million project, which would replace two car lanes with protected bike lanes, has been in development for six years. If completed, it will be a significant milestone in L.A.'s evolution from car-centric sprawl to walkable, bikeable urban villages. But Figueroa happens to be an iconic car corridor; it's home to the Automobile Club of Southern California's headquarters and numerous auto dealers, including Felix Chevrolet, whose neon Felix the Cat sign is a designated historic cultural monument.

The Victorian-era detectives of "Ripper Street" have been granted a stay of execution, thanks to Amazon, which ordered a third season of the BBC series that had been canceled last year. The online retail giant announced the new eight-episode season as part of the launch of its Amazon Prime Streaming Video service in the United Kingdom. The third season will stream on Amazon in the United Kingdom before it airs on BBC One, where the first two seasons aired. BBC America, a co-producer of the series, will air the new season after it has aired in the United Kingdom on BBC One. Currently, Amazon does not have streaming rights for the show in the United States.

It's been three months now since the city of Los Angeles, in its wisdom, slapped down the new, controversial bicycle lanes in the 2nd Street tunnel. Where there used to be four lanes of car traffic moving smoothly in both directions, there are now only two, plus a bike lane on either side. This is part of the city's ongoing efforts to make Los Angeles more bike-friendly. At the moment, there are about 350 miles of bike lanes in the city, among some 6,500 miles of streets. So how's it working out?

What's the best way to minimize the number of guns on California's streets? That's the question confronting gun control supporters after this month's ruling by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals striking down San Diego's restrictions on carrying handguns in public. That case was brought by gun owners who applied for but were denied permits to carry concealed weapons. San Diego will undoubtedly appeal the decision in the hope of saving its restrictive policy for awarding concealed carry permits.
