Charles Burnett's first major-studio movie, "To Sleep with Anger," quickly places him at the front rank of today's up-and-coming directors. Contrary to its somewhat misleading title, "To Sleep with Anger" is a charming, funny movie about one black family's attempt to cope with a universal problem - the conflict between the old ways and the new. Gideon and Suzie, an elderly couple now waiting on their third grandchild, moved to south-central Los...

Black Magic 1 led at every turning mark and overwhelmed Dennis Conner's Young America by four minutes, 14 seconds yesterday in the America's Cup final off San Diego. Black Magic 1 became the first foreign yacht in 61 years to take a 2-0 lead over a U.S. defender. In 1934, England's Endeavour won the first two races, then lost four straight to Rainbow. And it was the biggest margin by a challenger over a defender since England's Livonia beat Columbia by 15:10 in 1871. New Zealand's short America's Cup history is marked by collapse, but Team New Zealand has shown no weaknesses in this regatta.

ATLANTIC CITY - Six men whose fishing boat, the Black Magic, had been lost at sea for nearly 48 hours were returned to the arms of their loved ones late Tuesday afternoon after the Coast Guard found them drifting about 120 miles off the New Jersey coast just before sunset Monday. Nearly two dozen wives, daughters, sons, sisters, brothers, and friends of the six waited at the Coast Guard station near the Frank S. Farley State Marina to greet the men as a cutter towed the disabled vessel to a dock.

For 15 minutes yesterday, Dennis Conner's borrowed Young America led Team New Zealand's Black Magic, marking the first time in the 29th defense of the America's Cup that the challenger has trailed. When the boats crossed half-way up the first leg of the fourth race, Young America was two boat lengths ahead. But when the two next crossed eight minutes later, Team New Zealand's boat led by eight lengths. Aboard Young America, tactician Tom Whidden took a bearing on the Kiwis' vanishing transom and said, "That is some fast boat.

The slaughter of three pygmy goats in East Bradford Township last weekend occurred on an occult-calendar sabbath, according to a Cheyney University professor who is helping the Chester County SPCA investigate the killings. Dawn Perlmutter, an associate professor of philosophy who has held seminars for law-enforcement agencies on ritualistic practices, said that the goat mutilations on April 30 coincided with May's Eve, or Walpurgis Night - one of eight sabbaths on the occult calendar.

Curtis Jackson, better known by his stage name of 50 Cent , is in an elite and exclusive group of rappers who have transcended the genre to become forces of pop culture. While his career began in earnest several years earlier, it was his 2003 seminal album "Get Rich or Die Tryin' " that put him on the map. From then on, 50 Cent has been synonymous with mainstream rap, dominating radio play and sales charts. More amazing has been the rapper's proliferation into other media, including film and even video games.

Members of a Satanic cult could have etched the symbols on the walls of the house. Or maybe it was practitioners of the black magic called Palo Mayombe. Whatever the markings are, one thing is certain, experts in the occult say: The target shouldn't be expecting good fortune. The symbols were discovered on three walls of a tiny dark room in the house on Chelten Avenue near Wissahickon, Germantown, where a real estate agent discovered a human skull on Monday. They were used to cast a spell, said one woman who works in an occult store.

With a 26-year-old rookie at Black Magic's helm, host New Zealand sailed into America's Cup history today by becoming the first country other than the United States to defend the oldest trophy in sports. In a move that probably only the Kiwis could pull off, veteran skipper Russell Coutts stepped aside hours before Race 5 in favor of his protege, Dean Barker. The Auckland native made his first America's Cup race a memorable one, the clincher of a 5-0 sweep of Italy's Luna Rossa.

I have met the love of my life, and it comes in a box. I'm talking, of course, about ThermaCare. For those of you who have yet to fall in love, allow me to explain. ThermaCare is a heat wrap you can buy in a drugstore. It has some kind of black pods attached to a piece of paper, and you stick the paper on various parts of your body that happen to be aching, like your lower back. Me! In no time, the black pods start to heat up and your lower back will not only stop aching, but start feeling loose, relaxed, and ready to twerk.

THE LATEST product from the Disney princess factory is "Frozen," which does its best to honor tradition while pushing the genre in new directions. Yes, there are handsome princes and magical kisses, and, yes, there are Broadway-ready tunes. But "Frozen" makes sure to build the emotional core of its story around two sisters, and it's shopped the music out to Robert Lopez, whose credits include the cheeky musical "Book of Mormon. " The movie is very loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen" - in a tiny Nordic kingdom, princess Elsa (Idina Menzel)

According to a report from Australia's Courier and Mail , should everything go according to plan, expect the official announcement of topless basketball to arrive early next week.

When Mos Def and Talib Kweli started Black Star in the 1990s, they didn't create hip-hop based on bling, boastfulness, or violence. With the killings of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. before them, the righteous, literate rappers Def and Kweli formed their union based on the ideals of Marcus Garvey, founder of the United Negro Improvement Association, and his Black Star shipping line. Garvey's concerns about the African American community - pride, respect, consciousness - were shared by Def and Kweli, and acted as a gentle but formidable tonic to the chaos surrounding them.

So what if I had to brave the avalanche of traffic, the hordes of crowds, and overall aggravation? It was well worth it to see my best friend's daughter, Jade, graduate Monday from the University of Pennsylvania. What's that you say? Denzel Washington - Academy Award winner, Tony winner, kid-loving philanthropist, and pretty much every woman's dream - was the keynote speaker? Really? How about that. And I just happened to be there. Didn't matter. I was there for Jade. Really, I was. But then again, what would it hurt to take one little photo?

Hours before six missing fishermen from New Jersey and Pennsylvania were found alive and well last night, a couple of their wives relied on their sense of humor to see them through the tense day. "I don't know where the hell he is, but I wish he would come home," said Jean Silcox, of Langhorne, Bucks County, whose husband, Ed, 77, was among the fishermen reported missing out of Forked River, Ocean County, early yesterday. "I sure hope they caught some fish out there," Silcox said.

FORKED RIVER, N.J. - A recreational fishing boat that had been missing for a day off the New Jersey coast with six men aboard was being towed back to port today after being found adrift about 120 miles off Atlantic City Monday evening. The men were unharmed. The search for the 32-foot Black Magic began Sunday night after it failed to return to the Forked River section of Lacey Township on Sunday morning after an overnight tuna-fishing trip, authorities said. Passengers on the disabled vessel included Bernie Otremsky of Haddon Township; Ed Silcox of Lower Southampton Township; Jerry Lewis, who acquaintances say lives in Trenton; and Ray Somerville, for whom a hometown was not available.

The story filmmaker Dan Klores tells in Black Magic is really one of a parallel universe. While mainstream basketball, populated almost exclusively by whites, was beginning to find a larger audience in the 1950s and early 1960s, a more up-tempo, stylish shadow game was being played at the traditionally black colleges. Klores has assembled a startlingly frank, four-hour documentary on the civil-rights-era history of basketball at those schools. ESPN will air the film, without commercial interruptions, over two nights, March 16-17.
