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. John White Sr., an assistant city managing director and head of the city's community intervention program, said he sent 18 community intervention workers in two-person teams into schools and public housing complexes to hold "rap sessions on these anti-social...

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.

Question: Is there anything I can do to get my wife to suspend a habit for a few months? A family wedding is coming up, and she has the full outfit, will be getting her hair done, all the details. The crowning touch for me would be if she could stop picking at her fingers long enough for them to heal - they are often bloody as the result of this compulsive behavior. This has been a longtime issue for me, and my attempts at expressing concern have never been well received. Basically, I've been told, angrily, to butt out. Is there a way I can approach this?

The progressive drive to broadly define and thoroughly eradicate political "corruption" has corrupted politics. But discord is not altogether pandemic in Washington, and last week, a unanimous Supreme Court, in this term's most important decision, limited the discretion prosecutors have to criminalize politics. Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell was sentenced to prison for unseemly behavior. He accepted from a Virginia businessman gifts and loans valued at more than $170,000. The businessman wanted McDonnell to help promote his dietary-supplement business, including by helping him persuade state universities to study its products.

Blair was removed from the plane on a stretcher. "After a lovely trip with my son and his dad, I mixed alcohol with medication, and that caused me to black out and led me to say and do things that I deeply regret," Blair tells Vanity Fair, referring to her son Arthur and his dad, Blair ex-bf Jason Bleick . "My son was with his dad asleep with his headphones on, so there is that saving grace.

DEAR ABBY: I have officially found my biggest pet peeve. It's a pervasive issue with my generation of committing to something and not showing up. They'll flake at the last minute, or refuse to commit to something because there's a possibility something better will come along. And constantly showing up late has become normal with young adults. Furthermore, despite the many technological advances that allow us to communicate quickly, their failure to communicate about plans astounds and infuriates me. I've encountered this problem too often with friends, coworkers, bosses and professors at university.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: I have been with my boyfriend for four years. We have lived together for one. I am nine years older, and he comes from a very traditional part of the world. We are trying to get pregnant, but the thought of scientific intervention puts him off. I have tried to explain that the longer we wait, the harder it will be, but he thinks that if we keep trying, it will happen. I am afraid that if it doesn't, we will end, because he does want children and I won't be able to. How do I get him to face the age difference and go to the doctor?

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: I recently confided in a good friend some personal news and told her not to tell anyone. I didn't think trusting her was a problem, as she has confided in me numerous times in the past, and I have kept her personal stories to myself. Within a few days, she had told two other friends. Although she apologized profusely, I was still angry. I told her I should never have confided to anyone in the first place. She responded by saying I was right and shouldn't have confided in anyone, as even well-meaning folks like her can say things they don't mean to. I feel like she's trying to justify her behavior.

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.
