Jennifer Aniston continues to explore the magic of the Internet, this time with the help of some unborn triplets, a grown son in Jimmy Kimmel and even Ryan Seacrest. But let's start with Smartwater.

What possible street cred could there be in a roots-country record sung by three New York-born, Los Angeles-reared sisters and produced by a guy who grew up in Santa Monica? Plenty, when the singers are Petra, Tanya and Rachel Haden, the triplet daughters of jazz luminary Charlie Haden, and that producer happens to be Ry Cooder. It's worth knowing that before the triplets' dad earned his stripes in the jazz world, Charlie spent many years performing country music with his family throughout the Midwest - a history he tapped in his 2008 album, "Rambling Boy," for which Tanya and Rachel were along for the musical ride.

Triplets may be rare in humans, but they're even more unusual to find in quasars. But now, an international team of researchers has discovered a quasar triplet about 9 billion light years away - only the second such trio ever discovered. The strange structure is no mere novelty: Quasar triplet QQQ J1519+0627, described in a paper released Tuesday by the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, will give astrophysicists a look into the growth and development of the universe's structure.  “We are using them to go and find galaxy clusters that are in the act of forming, essentially,” said coauthor Michele Fumagalli, an astrophysicist at the Observatories of the Carnegie Institution in Pasadena.

A Long Beach pediatric hospital was home Saturday to four sets of triplets who were born over the past three weeks. "I think it's the first time we've had four at the same time," said Dr. Penny Jacinto of Miller Children's Hospital at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center. Although all of the births were premature, and the infants must remain in the neonatal intensive care unit for treatment, Jacinto said the four mothers and 12 babies are healthy. Only one infant remains on a ventilator, she said.

In 1961, Hayley Mills played twins in the Walt Disney movie "The Parent Trap." Twenty-five years later, Mills again co-starred with herself in the sequel, "Parent Trap II." And when the Disney studios, perhaps deciding that three times was the charm, began production on the made-for-TV movie "Parent Trap III," Mills was again cast opposite herself. Only this time around, she is one-upped by a set of real-life triplets. Leanna, Joy and Monica Creel, three of the more prominent members of the Sunny Hills High School class of 1988, portrayed the sisters in the film, which made its television debut earlier this month as a two-part Disney Sunday movie special.

Patti Frustaci manned a video camera as 2 1/2-year-old Stephen, one of her three surviving septuplets, toddled across the room, balloon in hand. Janet Lederhaus mopped up spills as Eric, Jeff, Keith, and Kate--her 4-year-old quadruplets--munched cookies and croissants. And 3 1/2-year-old triplets Jennifer, James and Ryer Pickren--she in a red party dress, her brothers in matching blazers--smiled shyly and shook hands with Dr. Ragnar Amlie, the doctor who once cared for them.

Oh, brother. If you're seeing double or even triple when looking out on high school football fields this season, your eyesight isn't betraying you. There are teams loaded with twins, triplets and brothers galore. At Westlake Village Westlake, three starting defensive positions are filled by the Ray triplets - seniors Devin, Brennan and Dylan. Two other starting spots belong to the Rothschiller twins, Jake and Kyle. At Calabasas Viewpoint, five sets of brothers are in the football program.

In America, a family with eight children is the premise for a reality television show. In China, where most couples are allowed to have only one child, it's a national scandal. The revelation last month that a Chinese couple were the proud parents of two sets of triplets and one set of twins launched a round of soul-searching about how the super-rich circumvent the one-child policy. It is a tangled case involving a wealthy couple, two surrogate mothers, a gaggle of nannies and, to top it off, a team of government bureaucrats scrambling to figure out how they all came together.

Nearly five years ago, Abbie Dorn, a happily expectant mother, went into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center to give birth to triplets. The babies were born healthy, but a series of devastating medical errors left Dorn profoundly brain damaged. She lives on, semiconscious, a paraplegic unable to speak but capable of blinking, moving her head, smiling. She is ministered to with a fierce devotion by her mother and father in their home in South Carolina, aided by a retinue of caregivers financed by part of an $8-million malpractice settlement.

Regarding the article ("County's First '91 Baby Followed by Triplets," Jan. 2) about the county's first set of triplets: I hate to sound callous, but what the parents need is birth control in addition to diapers and food. If they can't afford eight kids, why did they have more children when they already had five, especially with a history of twins? BETSY SHAPIRO, Mission Viejo

After an acrimonious yearlong legal battle, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge ruled Friday that a paraplegic woman who communicates largely by blinking has a legal right to see her 4-year-old triplets. In a 10-page tentative ruling, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Frederick C. Shaller said that even though Abbie Dorn, 34, "suffers from a profound brain injury that had led to her near total and complete disability," it would be in the children's best interests to have a relationship with their mother.

Judge Frederick C. Shaller faces a daunting array of questions this week as he decides whether a paraplegic woman who communicates largely by blinking has the right to see her triplets. What is a parent? What is communication? What is a relationship? Does a child, not yet 5, benefit from visiting a mother who neither moves nor speaks? Can that woman ? Abbie Dorn, 34 ? think, feel, love, want? How is it even possible to know? During testimony in Department 46 of Los Angeles County Superior Court, Dorn's ex-husband Dan talked publicly for the first time last week about why he is fighting to keep the children away from their mother and maternal grandparents ?
