One of the rich elements of "The Lego Movie" is its sense of place. For a fictional land, it has plenty of echoes of the real world. With a populace kept numb by plastic pop music, contrived reality TV and fast-food giveaways -- and a general sense that business interests trump nearly everything else -- the world dear Emmet and his friends occupy in the Phil Lord-Chris Miller picture has more than a little in common with modern-day America....

Entrepreneur Mykalai Kontilai's August purchase of the long-running public TV show "Nightly Business Report" came as a surprise.

And in the nine months since he bought the show from WPBT-PBS2 in Miami, Kontilai has revealed few details regarding plans for the 30-year-old weeknight business wrap-up show. But in a recent interview at the show's North Miami studio, Kontilai — who owns the show with partner Gary L. Ferrell under the corporate name of NBR Worldwide — spoke more about expanding the show's brand and audience.

Lou Dobbs, 68, is the host of Fox Business Network's "Lou Dobbs Tonight," and he has sometimes struggled with his weight during a busy broadcasting career that has spanned more than four decades. Before hitting the airwaves, Dobbs was a football-playing farm boy who never had to worry about his weight because he was always on the move.
