Hello there Amber grew up in West Deptford, but moved to Los Angeles, then New York, where she took parts in commercials while studying for her MBA. She told friends she had no time for dating. There's always time for that, one friend said, and set up Amber's profile on PlentyofFish.com. Amber looked at profiles mainly to avoid homework. They were often humorously similar: likes movies and walks on the beach. Does not play games. Blah, blah. Then in November 2008, she read that John, an online marketer living in Monroe Township, Middlesex County, loved playing games - especially Trivial Pursuit and checkers.

More than 15 million years ago, the delicate flowers fell to the floor of a muggy, tropical forest, and somehow did not rot and wither away. Instead, they were trapped in sticky globs of tree resin, hardened into amber, and carried on the high seas to what is now a Caribbean mountain range. The first Lena Struwe heard of all this was last April at Rutgers University, when she opened an email depicting the fragile petals trapped in golden splendor. On Monday, the botanist and her collaborator, Oregon State University's George O. Poinar Jr., who found the two amber fossils, announced that the plants they contained represented a new species, Strychnos electri . For Agatha Christie fans, this is a distant cousin of the plant that contains the poison substance strychnine.

Even in his most hyper moments, 6-year-old Dominick Andujar, who preferred break dancing and wrestling to homework, would stop whatever he was doing if he knew his mother was sick or needed help. "He was my little man . . . my son, my everything," Debbie Burgos, 34, of Camden, said. Dominick promised Burgos in August he would protect her if anyone ever tried to hurt her. She never expected that a few days after Dominick made that vow, he would act the hero and die for it. Just after midnight Sept.

When the phone rings in Amber's house and her foster mother answers, Amber shows only passing interest - unless the call is from Gloria, the neighbor who lives upstairs. Somehow she just knows if her foster mother is talking to Gloria. Amber starts to laugh and makes a happy fuss when the phone is put by her ear. Her best effort goes into communicating her joy at the sound of Gloria's voice. Amber, 9, has severe neglect in her background.

The toddler drank a drain cleaner with sulfuric acid, but her drug-addicted mother didn't call 911 or rush her to the hospital. Instead, Marsha Hughes, 29, took 20-month-old Amber to a check-cashing store in April 1995, and cops arrested her on a bad- check rap. As Amber lay limply against her mother's shoulder, she couldn't speak or cry. It was only after a cop noticed Amber's lips were swollen and red and her tongue was thick and...

A somber Marsha Hughes told a Philadelphia judge yesterday that she had been punished enough by not being with her toddler daughter, whose throat and mouth were severely burned in April last year by sulphuric acid. Despite that plea for leniency, Hughes, who was addicted to crack when the incident happened, was sentenced to 15 months to 10 years in prison for simple assault and endangering the welfare of her daughter. Amber, then 20 months old, drank a liquid drain cleaner. Common Pleas Court Judge Murray C. Goldman acquitted Hughes in March of a charge that she poured the acid down her daughter's throat.

Some people were born to be in the movies. Madonna, despite her persistence in pursuing said art form, is not one of them. The latest, and perhaps definitive, proof: Swept Away. Together with her husband, the British director Guy Ritchie (Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), the onetime Material Girl had the ill-advised idea to redo Swept Away - Lina Wertmuller's 1974 arthouse hit about an arrogant millionairess stranded on a desert island with a lowly (but hunky) lug. Madonna is the insufferable Amber, a hard, haughty queen of the jet set who has embarked on a Mediterranean cruise with her drug-magnate husband (Bruce Greenwood)

Little Amber Volpe began screaming and ran out of the courtroom. Jurors were not present to see the outburst. "She wouldn't walk past the bar of the court," Assistant District Attorney Arlene Fisk said yesterday. "She refused to testify. She wouldn't even talk to the judge. " Common Pleas Judge Kathryn S. Lewis then ordered the jury brought into the room and allowed Fisk to use the notes of Amber's testimony taken at a preliminary hearing.

IS AMBER ROSE the new Oprah? Of course not. The South Philly-native-turned-professional model is not the touchy-feely type. Instead, her new VH1 talk show, premiering 11 p.m. Friday, will focus on sex and relationships, with the characteristically outspoken Rose decrying the practice of "slut-shaming," or insulting women for expressing their sexuality. Rose talked about why she won't do reality, how being a Philly girl affected her show and why she loves Conan O'Brien. Why a talk show?

THE LAST TIME Tattle made a comment about the problem with everyone having a forum for an opinion, we got the usual run of anger-mail (a notch tamer than hate mail) accusing Tattle of being an elitist ass. Could be. But there are two big problems with everyone having a forum to voice their opinions. 1. Most opinions have minimal merit (you're free to put Tattle's on that list). 2. Once everyone gets the opinion-induced adrenaline rush, they have opinions on everything . And they're not the old-fashioned opinions that began with "I think" or "I believe," they're emphatic opinions that allow for no dissent.

In 2005, the last time the Brewers Association held its annual conference here, a few local brewers thought it would be a swell idea to expose the conventioneers to a unique slice of Philly's growing craft-beer scene. So they trooped the visitors down to a seamy stretch of Delaware Avenue and held what was surely the city's first-ever cask-ale event at a topless bar. As dancers jiggled over the tap handles for dollar bills, visitors drained glasses from a freshly tapped firkin.
