WAS IT only a week ago that we were the center of the universe? Now, all the camera lights, the 50 daily e-mails from Bill Clinton and the embarrassing behavior by the national media surrounding the Democratic primary have shifted to Indiana and North Carolina. We're relieved to have our city back. But the weeks leading up to last Tuesday's primary were good weeks for Philadlephia. We got the Colbert bump. On national TV, we watched our mayor being funny and our former mayor being even funnier.

A gentle, non-punitive approach to improving dogs' behavior and a lucid text that any novice should be able to understand distinguish Everyday Dog: Training Your Dog to Be the Companion You Want by Nancy E. Johnson (Howell Book House, Macmillan Publishing, $17.95). Of the scores of dog-training, problem-solving books I've read, this is the first that offers different techniques for training puppies and adult canines, even when the same problem, such as housebreaking, is concerned.

Snowballs rained down, dangerously and persistently. Fights broke out in the stands. Several individuals ran onto the playing field and disrupted play. Dozens of customers invaded the sidelines in search of snow for ammunition. If anarchy did not reign in some sections of Veterans Stadium, it was chillingly close. And Eagles owner Norman Braman - who had as his guest at the game yesterday Paul Tagliabue, the NFL's new commissioner - was furious. "It's a disgrace," Braman said, after the Eagles' 20-10 victory over Dallas.

A day after the violent outbreak of looting in the East Market Street area during the parade for Julius Erving, some police and gang-control workers started talking to students about what went on.

This month - Domestic Violence Awareness Month - the Commentary Page is featuring a series of essays by workers in the field of domestic abuse. In almost 16 years of counseling men who abuse their partners, I've been asked lots of questions about my clients. The thing people most frequently want to know is: Can these guys change? My answer is always an emphatic but qualified yes, because while I've witnessed many dramatic and inspiring conversions, the countervailing truth is that relatively very few abusive men actually come for help or stick with the grueling process.

Upper Moreland High School seniors and their friends must leave their water balloons, beach balls, kazoos and water pistols at home when they don caps and gowns for their commencement ceremony Wednesday. Although they may toss their caps during the "graduation salute" at the end of commencement, no jeering or cat calling will be tolerated. The banned items and behavior are listed in a sternly worded letter to seniors and their parents from high school principal Robert H. Bubeck and assistant principals L. John DeLaurentis and Charles D. Cassady.

A Dec. 3 article referred to a case of a battered woman who fatally shot her husband as he tried to hit her with a piece of pipe. During the five years of their marriage, she had suffered repeated physical abuse, which resulted in numerous injuries, including the loss of sight in one eye. The defense sought to introduce testimony on the "battered women's syndrome," which the judge did not allow. The story said that "the syndrome . . . can cause irrational behavior in a victim," in a sentence worded such that readers may have erroneously inferred that the woman's lawyer made such a statement.

Some people want to explore space, make a million dollars, or become a movie star. Malik, 9, wants stickers on his behavior chart - lots of them. He can earn them by speaking quietly in the house, staying in bed before 6:30 a.m., and dressing for school, eating and brushing his teeth with a pleasant attitude. The size of his allowance depends on the sticker pile-up. He likes to go shopping with his foster father, and will use some of his money to get a toy for his foster brother back home, too. Neglect and abuse are in Malik's background, and he receives therapy to help him deal with it. He takes medication for an attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and for behavior management.

An epidemic of coarse and obnoxious behavior is in full swing in the workplace. Examples are the boss who begins a meeting late, then takes phone calls while his subordinate sits and waits, and the co-worker who drains the last of the coffee and fails to start a fresh pot, according to Training magazine. Some advice for the civil-minded who find themselves confronted by obnoxious office behavior: Watch your language. Avoid vulgarities, sarcasm and dismissive responses like "whatever," which implies "I don't care.

Chile's Marcelo Rios, the former world No. 1, has been fined $10,000 by the ATP for unsportsmanlike behavior at the players party during the Italian Open at Rome last week. The fine was the maximum under ATP rules. Rios became rowdy during the party and later went out on the town, allegedly attacking a taxi driver and two Carabinieri policemen, the ATP said. Italian officials said Rios had been drinking at the time. Rios was knocked out of both the Italian and German Opens in early rounds.

Blame "the bracelet incident" on the brain, Philadelphia fans, because human beings can be helpless during a terrible hockey game, unable to resist the sense of release that comes with joining a crowd booing or throwing something on the ice. The key to Monday night's rain of light-up bracelets at the Wells Fargo Center, experts say, would be finding Patient Zero, the first disgruntled Flyers fan who sparked the latest municipal embarrassment by...

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: Recently, an engaged couple that my boyfriend and I dine with semiregularly bailed at the last minute on long-standing dinner reservations at a nice restaurant. Their cancellation was so last-minute we couldn't have canceled the reservation even if we'd wanted to; fortunately, another couple was included in the reservation and the four of us were able to enjoy dinner together. The guy texted all of us, saying that dinner wasn't "in the cards" for them due to wedding-registry activities.

Few local musical artists have worn as many masks or shed as many skins over the last decade as Michelle Zauner. The singer, composer, and multi-instrumentalist - a Eugene, Ore.-to-Philadelphia transplant, who turns 27 today - has fronted the now-defunct indie-synth-pop Post Post , the lyrically challenging emo-core Little Big League , and now her softly buzzing synth-and-sequencer-driven Japanese Breakfast , a solo project releasing its...

While I'm away, readers give the advice. On having a child with a short-tempered partner: Having a child will increase stress, which, in turn, is likely to make any poor behavior far worse and may place the hypothetical child in direct danger. How often will a child not do what this parent wants, and how far will he or she go when a display of temper still doesn't get results? I was married to someone with an explosive temper. After much soul-searching on my part, we adopted a child together.

A former Malvern Preparatory School swim coach and counselor was sentenced to five years' probation Monday after admitting she tried to seduce a high school student, in part by promising to get him into Harvard University. A Chester County Court judge also ordered Emily Feeney, 41, of Wayne, to register as a sex offender for 15 years under Megan's Law. The defense and prosecution set the terms in a plea agreement. Feeney, hired at the all-boys private school in 2013, kissed a 16-year-old swimmer in her office and sent him sexualized text messages and emails, including photos of herself in states of undress, starting in May 2014.

DEAR ABBY: I'm 39 and seven months pregnant with my husband's only child. Since becoming pregnant, I have become somewhat withdrawn due to depression. My doctor prescribed Paxil, but my husband won't allow me to take it. I don't leave the house unless I absolutely need to because he accuses me of cheating on him daily. Two nights ago, he took a single female friend out to dinner, and they were gone for five hours. It hurt my feelings because, in my view, it was disrespectful on both their parts.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Sometimes you get the sense that you're outside of the prevailing feeling. When that happens, stop talking. TAURUS (April 20-May 20).

I, however, love the boyfriend, and I'm very much looking forward to my first grandchild.
