As Mark Yudof bids farewell as president of the University of California, we look at his legacy and challenges faced by the public university system moving forward. His five year tenure oversaw a near doubling of tuition and student protests, but he is credited with expanding financial aid programs and reforming the system's pension plan.

The America's Cup finals begin on Saturday, pitting Larry Ellison's Oracle Team USA against Emirates Team New Zealand in a best-of-17 series that could last two weeks. Meanwhile, illegal weights on a Team USA catamaran have resulted in what are being described as the harshest penalties in the history of the sailing competition. The team was docked two points and fined $250,000 and a jury banned three team members from further participation in this year's races.

Expectations are mounting for Apple to introduce new iPhone models on September 10. Updates to the current iPhone 5, new color choices, and the availability of a lower-priced model are rumored to be announced next Tuesday. Apple's event comes amid speculation about the company's strategy for pursuing a greater market share overseas, particularly in China.
