Sarah Jessica Parker has welcomed a reporter to her townhouse in New York City's West Village for an interview and a peek inside, and SJP fans with enough fortitude to withstand the interview's rapid-fire pace are welcome to sneak a peek. She's shared the home with husband Matthew Broderick for about 13 years, with son James Wilkie and twin daughters Loretta and Tabitha joining them in 2002 and 2009, respectively. The joint has a homey but sophisticated feel, punctuated by shelves full of books, a piano, the actress' collection of globes and a pingpong table smack in the middle of everything.

Its resume reads like an overachieving supercar. A twin-turbocharged V-8 unleashes 577 horsepower to all four wheels, it takes 3.6 seconds to go from zero to 60 mph, the sticker price passes $100,000 even quicker than that, and it's a station wagon that seats five comfortably. Wait, what was that last part? Yes, for the few buyers who crave a vehicle that can haul the entire family to a night at the movies fast enough to earn them a night in jail instead, Mercedes-Benz would like to offer the E63 S AMG station wagon.

Down with stakeholders. The American Academy of Pediatrics has come out against affordable healthcare for kids. Retail medical clinics - at drugstores, Wal-Marts, etc. - are cropping up across the nation, thanks in part to the expected longer waiting times and out-of-pocket expenses stemming from Obamacare. And the pediatricians don't like it. "While retail clinics may be more convenient and less costly, the AAP said they are detrimental to the concept of a 'medical home,' where patients have a personal physician who knows them well and coordinates all their care," reported the Wall Street Journal.

When asked how he went bankrupt, a character in Ernest Hemingway's novel "The Sun Also Rises" replies: "Two ways. Gradually and then suddenly. " This neat summation of how business failure creeps up on victims is quoted in "Big Bang Disruption: Strategy In The Age of Devastating Innovation," a new book with more than a whiff of apocalyptic prophecy about it. The book, published by Portfolio Hardcover, plays to the belief that technology has...

MALAKAL, South Sudan - The looters came by the thousands. They were organized, systematic and took their time. At two World Food Program warehouses in this dusty South Sudanese town, they opened thousands of USAID cans of vegetable oil and poured the contents into stolen jerry cans. They ripped open packets of high-nutrition food and took the contents. They stole computers, light fittings, fans and roof tiles, and even cut away the canvas from storage tents. The food they took - 1,700 tons in all - would have fed more than 100,000 families for a month.

Like an owner who resembles his or her dog, Mitsubishi's 2014 Outlander is just as much an oddity as the brand itself. Though the Japanese automaker sold more cars in the U.S. in 2013 than Porsche or Volvo (and just a few thousand less than Jaguar), Mitsubishi is a quirky company with a quirky lineup that flies well below the radar of many shoppers. In addition to the midsize Outlander SUV that starts at $23,820, Mitsubishi also sells the Outlander Sport compact crossover; regular, hatchback and high-performance versions of the Lancer compact sedan; and the new Mirage, a tiny morsel of a hatchback that starts just under $14,000.

New state geological maps released Wednesday show several major developments planned in Hollywood are much closer to an active earthquake fault than Los Angeles city officials initially said. The maps chart the course of the Hollywood fault, which runs from Atwater Village and Los Feliz, through central Hollywood and west along the Sunset Strip. The state accelerated completion of the maps last fall amid controversy over the Los Angeles City Council approving a skyscraper development on or near the fault.

Take a good look at Aston Martin's Rapide S, a task made easy by its breathtakingly sleek design. The look carries all the gravitas of the rest of the brand's lineup, yet is differentiated by a second set of doors artfully etched into the side of the car. Those doors are as far as Aston plans to deviate from its longstanding sports car ethos. And it's barely a deviation at all. This dramatic Rapide picks up where the DB9 coupe leaves off, and adds to it the doors, a pair of (barely)

Southern California home sales plunged in November as prices stayed flat, continuing a cooling trend that started this summer. But experts expect a jolt in prices soon. Home prices "will start rising again in the spring, because that's when demand heats up," said Christopher Thornberg, founding partner at Beacon Economics. The regional median home price, $385,000 in November, has stayed essentially the same since June after a rapid run-up in prices in the first half of this year, according to San Diego research firm DataQuick.
