"He's famous for walking around saying, 'I need a hug!' " Tony's staff parent says, laughing. "It's hard for him to start the day without the affection he craves. " Tony, 14, also wants to give love and attention to others. He volunteers at a retirement facility and recently assisted with an orientation program for other teenagers. His efforts have boosted his self-esteem. And he finds satisfaction in helping others whose problems are as challenging as his own. This young man, whose full name is Antonio, has a Hispanic heritage.

For David, 10, string is endlessly fascinating. He'll twirl it, put it in front of his face, or hold it in his hand contentedly. If no string is in sight, he'll scout around the laundry room until he locates some. The drawstring in a parka hood will do just fine. Shoelaces also fit the bill. It is difficult to assess David's I.Q. because he is autistic. Although behavior varies with each autistic individual, a common denominator seems to be compulsiveness and a need for a structured setting and a set routine.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: I adore my husband, and our two young children, but I am at a loss as to how to see my husband's love and affection as anything other than yet another demand for my time and energy. He is loving, affectionate, kind, and passionate, but when he comes to give me a hug or anything along those lines (whether it's just a hug, or a hopeful lead-in to something else), I think, "Go the hell away and take care of yourself. " What is wrong with me?

Question: I am not sure if my issue stems from my own insecurity or if this is an actual problem that needs to be addressed. My boyfriend of almost two years is an amazing guy. The only problem is, he is two different people when we are alone together and when there are others around. In the company of others, he is always trying to be the center of attention. He will leave for long periods of time, and I have no idea where he is. The last party we went to, a girl started telling me how cute he was and how he had flirted with her the whole night.

'To suffer love. " This unusual line appears three times in quick order toward the end of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing . Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre's fresh, exuberant production illuminates the Bard's theme with a fullness and flourish. Much of Much Ado centers on the unwilling affection building between Beatrice (Eleni Delopoulos) and Benedick (Chance Dean), a proud maid and professed bachelor trading jaded barbs about how they will never marry, especially not each other.

Question: I recently found out that my boyfriend deletes all his e-mails, including ones from me. I was so surprised when I heard this because I've never met someone who doesn't keep any personal e-mails! I was also a bit hurt and upset because we've had some heartfelt e-mail exchanges, especially when we did long-distance for a year. I've poured hours of thought into our correspondences. Admittedly I am somewhat of a sentimentalist and enjoy reading old messages, or at least knowing they are available to be read at any time.

Q: I've been dating a guy for about four months. I feel really strongly for him and possibly love him. He is very laid-back. He doesn't show much affection unless I initiate it. I prefer to be physically intimate every time we see each other. Recently, things have changed. He started saying that he is tired or not in the mood, when before all I had to do was kiss him and touch his waist to get him in the mood. I feel like he is not as attracted to me, or there is some sort of problem. I told him I don't want to feel like I have to coerce my boyfriend to sleep with me - he should be making the moves.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Make contact. You have terrific social instincts. You're likely to pull a quality new friend into your world just because you were the one who said "hi" when no one else did. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Osho, a great spiritual teacher of the 20th century, said that all artistic activity is on the way toward becoming religious. Today your creativity will lead you to a sacred place in your own soul. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You may have trouble relating to someone until you broaden your base of acceptable commonalities.

Adapted from a recent online discussion.   Question: My fiance likes to touch me in certain ways that I'm not a big fan of. Nothing superintrusive; more like where the hands go when we spoon. He says it makes him feel bonded and close to me. And I get that. Except I don't like the physical feeling, and at times, I feel objectified. Sometimes, I can appreciate it as a reaching out for an intimate connection. Sometimes, I resent that he's ignoring my preferences, and so the same act that makes him feels close to me makes me feel distant from him. I know you're going to ask if he has a habit of ignoring my preferences; he doesn't.

I SPOKE WITH Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine, and the senator from Virginia shared policies to address the unemployment, unequal treatment and inferior education systems that continue to encumber blacks in this country. But as I listened to Kaine speak of career and technical training as a remedy to the school to prison pipeline, and infrastructure reinvestment as a solution to unemployment, the ghost of Donald Trump lingered ominously in the background. It was Trump, after all, who had made an assumption-laden pitch to black voters only days before I spoke with Kaine.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There is danger in opportunity, and opportunity in danger. The best part is that today, you won't be able to tell which is which - a truly an adventurous time. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Chances are you'll be doing everything you can to avoid hurting someone's feelings, including leaving out key information, tiptoeing around delicate subjects and trying to time interactions carefully. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). One of your pet peeves is when people who have what you want tell you it's not worth wanting.

Hundreds of DUI cases from the first half of 2016 may be adversely affected because Breathalyzer machines used by Philadelphia police were improperly calibrated. The department was notified Wednesday by a private attorney that the police were using calibrations that had legally expired, police spokesman Lt. John Stanford said in a statement Thursday evening. "As a result of this discovery, all instruments were immediately removed from service," properly calibrated, and returned to service the same day, Stanford said.

In a big win for abortion-rights advocates, the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday struck down a Texas abortion law that required clinics to meet hospital-like surgical standards and doctors to get admitting privileges at a local hospital. The 5-3 ruling was the most significant since Planned Parenthood v. Casey in 1992, which set the precedent that states could impose abortion restrictions as long as they did not create an "undue burden" on women seeking abortions. An undue burden existed if a restriction's "purpose or effect is to place substantial obstacles" in the path of women who want an abortion, including "unnecessary health regulations.

Q: I saw that you recommended hanging lights on the trees in one of your columns. I see this in many places. I wonder whether that has any effect on trees? Trees photosynthesize during the day and respirate at night. That needs darkness, as my understanding goes. Just curious. - R.P. A: Your concern is appreciated. I definitely avoid wrapping the cords or wires tightly because that could constrict growth of the branches, but I honestly hadn't thought of the effects the light itself might have on the trees.

It was the October 1980 title fight between Easton's Larry Holmes and Muhammad Ali and the two old friends and competitors were battling not just with their fists, but also their wits. "When I fought him I said, 'You know I love you, man,' " Holmes recalled of the fight that Holmes easily won. "He said, 'If that is so, why are you whuppin' me?' " Holmes was one of only five boxers to ever defeat Ali. Years later, Ali would say that he would not have fought Holmes if he had known he would lose and suffer brain damage.

What if a tree fell during a televised presidential debate and Twitter and Facebook weren't there to record it/share it/mock it for its inability to remain upright? Would viewers have a better sense of the forest? Those aren't exactly the questions researchers set out to answer in a recently published study by the University of Pennsylvania's Annenberg Public Policy Center, but they might as well have been. In an article published online in the journal Political Communication, the Penn researchers concluded that people who used social media knew more about the 2012 election than nonusers, but that those who multitasked while watching the debates between President Obama and Mitt Romney didn't learn as much.

Klentak watched from a perch above home plate. He chatted with a few player-development officials as he shifted his focus from one game to the other. During the weeks spent in Florida, his presence on the back fields was a common sight.
