How to get big - without getting bloated - is one of the greatest challenges facing growing businesses. Start-ups want to know how they can expand without adding layers of deadening process. At the same time, large companies want to know how to replicate the creativity and innovative prowess of start-ups without triggering an anarchic free-for-all. Drawing on the authors' own and others' insights, "Scaling Up Excellence: Getting to More Without Settling for Less" promises many answers to those pressing questions.

Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said Thursday he does not know whether or not he has lost his mojo, as a leading news magazine suggested, because he doesn't really know what mojo is. "Is Rumsfeld Losing His Mojo?" was the headline in Time magazine above a story about Rumsfeld's recent difficulties concerning Iraq policy and differences with U.S. lawmakers. "Have you lost your mojo?" a reporter asked Rumsfeld during a Pentagon briefing.

TORONTO - Standing ovations for movies playing at the Toronto International Film Festival are as ubiquitous as Benedict Cumberbatch and the food trucks lining the downtown entertainment district. Every film receiving a gala premiere brings the audience to its feet (at least, once the houselights go up and the spotlight shines on the stars sitting in the mezzanine), even so-so films that no one particularly adores such as this year's festival opener, "The Fifth Estate. " When a movie prompts festival-goers to clap in unison before the stars hit the stage, as did "12 Years a Slave," that's different.

Bill Plaschke's moving article on the life and passing of Houston's Bill (Mojo) Lackey was a special Thanksgiving treat. In a sports world filled with overblown egos, trash talking and misplaced hero worship, Mojo's story is a breath of fresh air. It's a reminder that a person's worth is measured by the size of his heart, not his wallet. JON LEONOUDAKIS West Hills

Rupert Grint, best known for playing ginger-haired wizard Ron Weasley in the "Harry Potter" films, will make his stage debut as a pill-popping thug. Producers announced Friday that Grint will join the cast of Jez Butterworth's "Mojo," opening at London's West End later this year. Ben Whishaw, Daniel Mays and "Downton Abbey's" Brendan Coyle round out the cast in the revival about London's underbelly in 1950s. Ian Rickson, who helmed the "Mojo" original 1995 production at the Royal Court Theatre, will direct.

Tom Petty casually rolled back the sliding glass door at his rustic beach house in Malibu and stepped out onto the deck for a clear look at the waves crashing on the sand a dozen yards away. Surveying the picture-perfect blue sky and sparkling water to match, the 59-year-old rocker took in the view surrounding him and couldn't help noticing two young women sunbathing topless in front of the house next to his. The record business may be in disarray, but on days like this, it's still good to be a rock star — a job Petty has fulfilled admirably for more than 30 years now. A couple of decades earlier things might have transpired differently, but on this day, Petty simply cracked a wry smile at the scene next door and stepped back inside.

Since taking over as coach of the U.S. national team 26 months ago, Juergen Klinsmann has been almost as interested in the process of winning as he has been in the winning itself. He has repeatedly challenged players to step outside their comfort zone, pushing them not just to be good but to be better. Now it's time to find out if those lessons have taken hold. Tuesday's World Cup qualifier with Mexico in Columbus, Ohio, won't determine whether the U.S. plays next summer in Brazil, but it will determine whether the team possesses the strength and character to overcome adversity - traits it'll need if it hopes to go far once World Cup play begins.

LeBron James sprawled his body on the Staples Center court, endangering a physique that no Lloyd's of London policy could adequately protect. He was a twisting mass of sinewy muscle, reaching low to grab the ball away from Kobe Bryant on a long rebound. The Miami Heat star dove to the floor in that fourth-quarter moment Thursday and spun toward the Lakers' three-point line. Rising quickly, James absorbed contact from a quickly closing Bryant and started a fast break that ended with the best player on this planet or any other finding Ray Allen for an open three-pointer that gave Miami the lead.

His picks for Palm Springs Christopher Reynolds' otherwise comprehensive guide to Palm Springs ["Truly an Oasis in the Desert," Nov. 25] omitted what for more than a decade has been the best restaurant in Palm Springs proper: Johannes. In a Palm Springs Modern setting, Johannes features an eclectic menu of creatively prepared seafood, duck, lamb and steak dishes, with wonderful cocktails plus a well-priced and well-chosen wine list. We eat there at least twice whenever we stay in the area.

Ever since Dax Shepard first appeared on the TV prank show "Punk'd," he's carved out an interesting niche in films and on television, expertly playing dumb guys who are still sweet and remarkably sensitive. It's a fitting description of both Crosby Braverman, his character on NBC's family drama "Parenthood," and Charlie Bronson, the man in the sights of a shady band of bank robbers in the car-chase comedy "Hit & Run. " Shepard wrote, co-directed and stars in the film, which opened in Los Angeles through Open Road on Wednesday.

Casey Abrams was very much an “American Idol” anomaly. His quirky, affable demeanor, unkempt facial hair and regular-guy chic earned the singer more comparisons to Seth Rogen than vocal studs. But with a bluesy growl rooted in rootsy rock 'n' roll and jazz vocalizing, as well as a deft hand at the kind of re-interpretations the show's judges beg for, the 21-year-old became an instant favorite. He seemed an early lock to win Season 10 of the aging franchise. Despite turning so-called-untouchable cuts like Screamin' Jay Hawkins' “I Put a Spell on You” and Nirvana's “Smells Like Teen Spirit” into rather off-kilter performances for the reality show stage, Abrams finished sixth, even after the judges saved him from being voted off the series by viewers.

Wait a minute. How did this happen? A month or so ago, massive bombing of Libya was on no one's agenda. Libya's government was just as tyrannical and its leader was just as loony then as now. Other governments around the world were even worse, and still are. In fact, among the usual enthusiasts for this sort of thing, Libya was considered one of the least urgent cases of awfulocracy because we had supposedly de-fanged Col. Moammar Kadafi in 2003, when...
