    Rick Warren is opening up a satellite church in LA that will hold services at the Hollywood Palladium (capacity 3,000). Warren's is one of the few churches that has capitalized on creating smaller satellite churches as a way to increase membership for people who want a more intimate church home vs large megachurch experience. Rick Warren knows he can't be everywhere to preach. Warren himself said "Los Angeles is one of the most strategically important cities in the world, why not start a campus there?" How does he stand to profit, beyond increasing membership? Plus, we take a closer look at the evolution of Apple ahead of Apple Earnings. Has the company that used to be known as innovative, lost some of its luster?

    We've heard a lot, lately, about rising income inequality. Some people at the top of the heap are paid way more than the "99 percent." New research shows that inequality in wages isn't the only thing growing. There's also a growing divide in wealth. Plus, Netflix earnings are out on Monday. The earnings come on the heels of  a study that shows more people are cutting off their cable cord and turning to instant video streaming services like Netflix. And finally, a Christian movie made for a puny $1.5 million has quietly brought in more than $40 million at the box office with little promotion. More and more theaters across the country are adding "God's Not Dead," which has mostly been a top five movie, coming out ahead of far more expensive and lavishly promoted rivals. We look at the modern history of targeting Christians as a box office moneymaker, from "Passion of the Christ" to now.

    The Supreme Court hears arguments next week in a case that pits traditional broadcasters against a new service that makes over-the-air TV available on your phone, tablet or computer. Some say that this technology is as revolutionary as the VHS tape was a generation ago. We explain the legal arguments and what's at stake. Plus, we talk to the author of “The Purpose Economy” about how our economy is shifting towards one driven by purpose and social good, instead of being driven solely by money. He uses examples like Millennials opting for start-ups as their preferred career path, and an overall focus on shared economies

    The ACA exchanges have been good for business. Both United Healthcare and Blue Cross plan to expand their offerings in 2015, while other top carriers are considering their options. We look at what the giant insurers have in store for ACA, year two. Plus, China's version of Twitter goes public on Nasdaq this Thursday. But there are big concerns over censorship.
