The discoveries include Johnston-Ready's sleek stools made of folded sheet aluminum and benches in solid walnut (shown above with a cast aluminum table topped in glass).

It doesn't matter if you're a serious collector like Eli Broad or Peter Norton or a casual fan of Bauer redware vases and Japanese woodblock prints when it comes to cohabiting with art. Everyone faces the same issues: Where should these cherished objects be displayed? How does one light them appropriately? What steps can be taken to safeguard them against the ravages of time and nature? The answers, like the art itself, will differ from person to person and from collection to collection.

Lowe's tapped into the fears of children living apart from their aging kin with its CES display of its new Iris Care system, which among other tasks can send an email to family members when an older relative doesn't get out of bed at the normal time.

It was a murder investigation that began more than three years ago when a pair of hikers discovered Ron Baker's mangled corpse lying near the mouth of a railroad tunnel at a Chatsworth park. Baker, a 21-year-old astrophysics major at UCLA, had been stabbed 18 times. His throat was slashed so badly his head had nearly been severed from his slightly built body. Los Angeles police detectives initially thought the body was that of a transient who had been hit by a train.

Howell swigged champagne and thought about her plans. Make the mess into a pendant? Earrings? Yes, a pendant. So much for tradition.
