Chaka Khan has won 11 Grammys and has, for the last 40 years, been a presence on the American music scene. 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? A few years ago, the promoters of an Indian-themed show in Central Jersey listed on a handbill the array of performers scheduled to appear at a live event at a theater in Middlesex County. Among other Bollywood movie singers was one Chaka Khan.

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.

NEWARK, Del. - One of the most popular members of the 76ers' minor-league team, the Delaware 87ers, won't be taking the court but hopes to make an impact. Elena Delle Donne, one of the top players in the WNBA and a Delaware resident and University of Delaware graduate, has been hired this season as an ambassador for the team, known as the Sevens. The 6-foot-5 Delle Donne figures to be a candidate to earn a berth on the 2016 U.S. Olympic team. This is her offseason; the WNBA doesn't begin its season until the first week of June.

As symptoms kept piling up, Elena Delle Donne couldn't help but think where they might lead. "I was doubting my career - doubting whether I could be a professional athlete," Delle Donne said over the phone on Saturday. Yes, Delle Donne's current back troubles, which kept her out of the second half of Sunday's Game 1 of the WNBA Finals, are tough stuff. Would she even be trying to play if the stakes weren't so high? Back spasms, however, aren't close to the toughest obstacle Delle Donne has dealt with this season.

UNTIL an unfortunate shooting outside Dell Music Center last week at a rap concert, things had been looking totally rosy at the Fairmount Park venue this summer. Four out of the five Essence of Entertainment concerts so far have been sellouts (5,284 seats plus 600 lawn seats). The fifth (July 24, Roberta Flack/Peabo Bryson) pulled a respectable 4,000 patrons. A recent (Aug. 1) gospel show top billed by Mary Mary sold twice as many tickets as in prior years. Overall, ticket sales at the Dell have doubled this year, and for the first time in memory patrons attempting to buy tickets the day of show have been turned away.

The renovated, refurbished, rebranded Dell Music Center makes a little history Saturday with a free performance of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 by the Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra, featuring a cadre of amateur guest musicians and singers drawn from the region. It will be the first time the Dell has hosted classical music since 1976, when the Philadelphia Orchestra, which had made the North Philadelphia venue its summer home since 1935, left for the Mann Music Center. The Dell was forced to reinvent itself, becoming one of the few venues in the region dedicated to urban music.

WHILE NOT ready to spill all, the Dell Music Center unwrapped a goodly share of the offerings from its 2014 "Essence of Entertainment" concert series yesterday - maybe the earliest the urban concert venue has sprung any seasonal news. Most exciting - the Dell is bringing back Roberta Flack for the first time in more than a decade, to headline a show July 24 along with Peabo Bryson. He's likely to duet with the Godmother of Neo-Soul on some of the songs (like "The Closer I Get To You")

INDIANAPOLIS - The storybook portion of Elena Delle Donne's rookie WNBA season ended last week when she spun to a space all her own by the foul line, free for a buzzer-beating, straight-to-YouTube game-winner. When WNBA awards were announced last week, Delle Donne was the unanimous rookie of the year, third in voting for league MVP. She was the leading vote-getter for the WNBA All-Star Game. Just last week, she called it a dream season. That was last week. Her season thudded to a close Sunday, going down like this: With a little more than a minute remaining and her team down by 24, a Chicago Sky teammate committed a foul 20 feet from the basket.

NEWARK, N.J. - Saturday's WNBA All-Star Game was supposed to be Elena Delle Donne's coronation. She was to start. She was the first rookie to receive the most votes. The game was to be a celebration, not just for her but for a league that has had an influx of young, marketable stars this year. But she suffered a concussion on Wednesday and announced on Friday that she will not play. On Thursday, fellow rookie and projected starter Brittney Griner announced she would also miss the game, with a sprained left knee.

Delle Donne fell to the court while going for a loose ball against Washington and left the game with about a minute left in the third quarter. She didn't return and the Sky lost, 82-78. "She's not nauseous now," said Sky coach Pokey Chatman, who confirmed the injury after the Mystics' team doctor examined Delle Donne. "She's groggy, headache . . . moving gingerly.
