Young Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright) can no longer walk. But as we see in Episode 22 (“Dark Wings, Dark Words”) of the HBO hit “Game of Thrones,” the Stark lad has the rare ability - in his “black magic dreams” - to run like a wolf or fly like a raven. Also possessing the gift of seeing through the eyes of animals is fellow “warg” Jojen Reed (Thomas Brodie-Sangster), who joins Bran's entourage on their flight from Winterfell. Protecting Jojen with her blade and wits is older sister Meera (Ellie Kendrick)

Rebel McMahon was 3 years old. Blond, with ears he hadn't quite grown into. Smart as a whip. Put a magazine in front of him, point to a picture of an airplane, and Rebel would say what kind it was. Police say the 12-gauge shotgun was less than 12 inches from his smooth face when his mother pulled its trigger. When the law came, Rebel's body was on the sofa, his pudgy legs peeking from a sheet. "Like he'd taken a nap," the sheriff said. Vincent Smith was 16, a boy on the verge of manhood.

Denard Robinson has had a couple of unforgettable games against Notre Dame over the last couple of years. On Saturday, the Michigan quarterback had one he surely wishes he could forget. Robinson had four passes intercepted -- in the first half, then turned the ball over on a fumble on the Wolverines' opening drive of the second half as No. 18 Michigan fell to the No. 11 Fighting Irish, 13-6, in South Bend, Ind. After burning Notre Dame for 948 yards of total offense in victories the last two years, Robinson completed 13 of 24 passes for 138 yards, no touchdowns and four interceptions to go with 90 rushing yards in 26 carries on Saturday.  Even with all of Robinson's miscues, the Wolverines actually were in the game until the finish.

Who will make big news in the business world this year? Who will emerge from relative obscurity to become a major player? To start the new year, Times business reporters selected people from their beats who they believe will be among those to watch in 2000--in Southern California, across the country and around the world. Some are well known, having made big news in previous years. Others are not exactly household names but nevertheless are likely to make a major impact in their fields.

An armed man who told police he was "disturbed about the world's religions" used lighter fluid to set fire to the pulpit and bishop's chair in a historic Roman Catholic cathedral in Savannah, then surrendered after a brief standoff, authorities said. The flames charred the pulpit but caused no structural damage to the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, which dates to 1873. No one was injured. Stuart Vincent Smith, 31, was jailed on suspicion of arson.

The American Institute of Architects produces serious podcasts geared to its nationwide membership, generally overworked professionals. Many segments sound like classwork, lectures pulled from trade conferences on the latest computer software tricks and ways for dueling design, construction and engineering firms to get along. But buried among the industry-insider info are consumer pieces, mostly interviews with architects who have written books.

Quest Software Inc., whose products speed database programs, said Wednesday that its third-quarter profit was less than expected on lower sales from customers affected by the terrorist attacks and the slowing economy. Excluding goodwill, stock-based pay and acquisition-related costs, profit was 1 cent to 2 cents a share on sales of $55 million to $56 million, the Irvine company said in a preliminary assessment of results.
