At 60, she prides herself on being able to sing pop, dance, R&B, funk, soul, jazz, gospel, classical, and country. But what about Bollywood?

There will be a showdown under Market Street today. The busy "Dell crowd," a group of 50 to 60 Philadelphia Stock Exchange traders who buy and sell options in Dell Computer Corp. stock, will be competing for the first time with groups of traders in Chicago and New York. The Philadelphia exchange's future is at stake. If PhilEx traders keep most of the Dell volume, the exchange will gain momentum in its recent campaign to draw new customers. The loss of too many trades could push the exchange, which has long served as a regional business incubator and a wealth-making machine for its 505 members and thousands of dependent jobs, to merge or sell its operations.

JERUSALEM - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu emerged weakened and facing a redrawn political map Tuesday after Israeli television projections showed a surge for a new centrist party, Yesh Atid, in Israel's elections, making it a key element of a future coalition. The surprise result, according to the projections, was the surge to 19 seats of Yesh Atid, or There is a Future. Its leader, Yair Lapid, a former television anchorman, based his campaign on a demand to end the exemption of tens of thousands of ultra-Orthodox Jews from compulsory military service so that they can pursue religious studies with government stipends.

   The bidding war over a company most of us had never heard of produced a statistic that caught my attention last week.     3Par Inc. is a Fremont, Calif., company that's involved in the white-hot business of cloud computing. Since reaching a deal to be acquired by Dell Inc. for $18 on Aug. 15, 3Par has become the object of Hewlett-Packard Co.'s desire.    There are lots of ways to describe what an acquisition is worth. Often, it's in terms of total dollar amount.

NEW YORK - Optimism that President Obama and congressional leaders will reach a deal on the budget deficit and avoid the fiscal cliff helped stocks notch their first advance in four days. The Dow Jones industrial average closed up 45.93 points, or 0.4 percent, at 12,588.31, after falling as much as 71 points at midmorning. The Standard & Poor's 500 index rose 6.55 points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,359.88, and the Nasdaq rose 16.19 points, or 0.6 percent to 2,853.13. Investor concern that Obama and Congress won't reach a deal on how to cut the deficit has caused a sell-off, and the Dow still ended lower for the week, logging a fourth straight weekly decline.

NEW YORK — A big final-hour comeback pulled the Dow Jones industrial average nearly back to where it started Wednesday. The Dow was down as much as 191 points earlier as the threat of a financial crisis spreading from Europe shook markets. The euro dropped to a nearly two-year low against the dollar, and oil prices sank to their lowest this year. A late surge of buying erased nearly all of the Dow's deficit, leaving it down just 6.66 points at 12,496.15 by the end of the day. The Standard & Poor's 500 index rose 2.23 points to 1,318.86.

ACTRESS-SINGER Sheryl Lee Ralph was a co-star in the original production of "Dreamgirls" on Broadway and alarmed about the health of some of her friends. It was the 1980s and Ralph knew of male dancers who developed painful neuropathy that prevented them from performing. Others were marked with strange, purple lesions and later died from what was thought to be a "gay men's cancer. " Back then, as researchers tried to figure out what was going on, the disease was marked by intense stigma and shame.

Philly tried, but it couldn't stay mad at Erykah Badu for long. When fans from the postponed show Thursday - Badu was a no-show, reportedly because of plane problems - arrived at the Dell Music Center, they walked to their seats with various attitudes. There was the "I had this ticket and was still available" stance, the "I had to call the babysitter again " walk, and the "this is the same outfit from yesterday" strut. Near the 8 p.m. start time, many of the seats weren't filled, sending a clear message: Badu was now on Philly's time.
