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.

The Flyers had introduced Craig Berube as their new head coach Monday morning with a shower of promises and platitudes about toughness and leadership and accountability. Over his 17 years as an NHL player, Berube had forged a reputation as one of the league's most intimidating enforcers, racking up more than 3,000 penalty minutes in his career, never fearing to drop the gloves and tread on the dark side of his sport. From Ed Snider to Peter Luukko to Paul Holmgren, the organization's power people had framed Berube's promotion as the perfect antidote for a team that had lost its discipline and tenacity.

Q : There's a new dog park in our area, and the rules are generally pretty good, as long as people follow them. We have a couple of people who bring in multiple dogs at once, including one person who is being paid to exercise dogs. We don't have a limit on the number of dogs a single person can bring in, but after a couple of incidents, we're thinking about it. What do you think? A : People with multiple dogs, no matter how well-mannered their pets are, simply cannot stay on top of what all their dogs are doing once the animals fan out. That's why many parks have guidelines that address professional dog walkers or people with many dogs of their own. Everyone who takes a pet into an off-leash dog park needs to be responsible for the behavior of that animal, watching to be sure that the dog is neither bully nor victim, and that no one gets hurt.

NEW YORK - Anthony Weiner said yesterday that he'd traded racy messages with as many as three women since similar sexting forced him out of Congress. As he tried to tamp down questions about his behavior, a poll suggested the new disclosures were taking a toll on his mayoral prospects. Weiner, the former congressman who resigned in 2011 after the first batch of sexts surfaced, is running for New York mayor and had been near the top of most polls of the Democratic primary race until the latest furor over his behavior began this week when gossip website The Dirty posted explicit messages that a woman said she and Weiner sent each other starting in July 2012.

GlaxoSmithKline chief executive officer Andrew Witty said Wednesday that he and other top leaders at company headquarters in London were unaware of the activity of GSK executives in China accused of using travel agencies to pay off doctors and other health-care providers to increase drug sales. "To see these allegations about people working for GSK is, as we've said, shameful," Witty said in a conference call with reporters, his first public comment since the scandal broke. "For me, personally, they are deeply disappointing," he said.

TRENTON - In a decision bolstering laws on workplace discrimination, the New Jersey Supreme Court found Wednesday that employers engaging in derogatory or denigrating remarks can be held civilly liable even though no individual may have been directly harmed. The court, in a unanimous ruling, said the state's interest in protecting against workplace discrimination and hostile behavior directed at employees demanded an expansive interpretation of the statute.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: Ever since my boyfriend and I moved in together this year, I have been uncomfortable with the amount of time his friends Jim and Dave spend at our house. They come over anywhere from two to five nights each week , often showing up unannounced. They will say they're just coming over to watch TV and have "a" beer, which usually turns into three, and don't leave till after I've gone to bed. This happens weekdays and weekends, whether or not my boyfriend and I already have plans with each other.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: My friend Z has been dating a guy, S, for a year. The guy doesn't seem to like our group of friends and shows it by being very sullen and withdrawn when we're all together. S also won't show a preference for where we go to dinner, what movie we see, etc., but then he's annoyed with the decision. And when S isn't happy, Z jumps to fix it somehow. They bicker constantly about very minor things. Z is the only unmarried one in our group, and I'm worried she's investing a lot into this relationship because she so badly wants to get married and have kids; she seems to think she's out of time and has to make this work, to the point where she has said firmly that she would marry him if he proposed.

MIAMI - Two years ago, LeBron James headed into the darkness. No visitors. No television. No daylight. For weeks on end. Such was the devastation of losing to the Dallas Mavericks in the 2011 NBA Finals. Now? Now he wants to be alone again. Alone to marinate in the moment, to immerse himself in the total relaxation that only triumph affords. Since the low point of that Miami Heat failure in those 2011 NBA Finals he has been MVP of the 2012 regular season and 2012 NBA Finals, a 2012 London Olympics gold medalist, MVP of the 2013 regular season, and, now, after Thursday's second consecutive NBA championship, MVP of the 2013 Finals.
