After Team USA's Dustin Pedroia singled in the third inning of yesterday's exhibition, Phillies righthander Kyle Kendrick raised his arms skyward and shook his head. It was the third consecutive hit he had allowed, and his second emotional outburst. Pitching coach Rich Dubee, who watched Kendrick become unhinged many times last season, quickly trotted to the mound and scolded the pitcher. Dubee had noticed a similar gesture moments before: After Kendrick made a throwing error on a pickoff attempt, he raised his hands in the air. When Kendrick displayed his frustration again following Pedroia's hit, Dubee left the dugout to share his annoyance.

Defenseman Dimitri Yushkevich sits in solitude at his stall, methodically unwrapping the tape from his ankles while the boisterous dressing-room banter swirls around him. He'd probably be the last guy you'd think was among the most popular and respected Flyers. The 21-year-old Russian rookie would love to become a vocal part of the dressing-room scene, he'd love to reveal his thoughts on his first season as a key player in the Flyers' rebuilding phase. But that will require a few more of the English classes he's been taking.

Communications specialist Marilyn S. Nyman stands close, watches intensely, and responds quickly and on target. She reads people almost instantly, having learned the value of nonverbal communication early - as a teenager when her father became deaf, she explains. Living with him in Penn Valley, she told a group of about 25 women at Willow Grove Business Women's Network lunch Thursday, was like being constantly videotaped. He wouldn't let anything slide. If she or her sister fiddled with their fingers, he'd ask, "What's the matter?"

Don't you hate cellular communications show-offs? No matter how much your neighbors on the bus may be yakking on the cell phone, they don't compare to the cells inside us. Those cells communicate, too, employing a delicate, precise system of electrochemical signals to let one another know what's up. A similar system regulates the functions within each cell. The more scientists learn, the more cell signal transduction - the process by which signals trigger effects in cells - is turning out to be one of the most exciting fields in microbiology.

Ray L. Birdwhistell, 76, who developed the scientific study of body language and thereby greatly enhanced the art of people-watching, died Wednesday at his home in Brigantine, N.J. Pioneering the concept of nonverbal communication in his 1952 book, Introduction to Kinetics, he taught observers not only to listen to what people say but also to watch what they do when they say it. "He touched many people's lives. He had a profound influence," said his wife, Anne D. Birdwhistell.

What is original and up-to-date in paintings by Anda Dubinskis and John Hoag at Franklin and Marshall College is the clear-cut body language of their human-figure subjects. Though their work otherwise is not alike, these two artists featured in the show "The Art of the Figure: Communicating Gesture" typify the new sensitivity of many contemporary realist painters. We turn to their work, with its strong ability to communicate gesture, because it reminds us that art is a personal matter as much as an objective phenomenon.

Crossed legs, upturned palms, downward gazes. To the uninitiated these are little more than insignificant gestures or postures. But to Andrew J. Gateriewictz, a shrug can be more than just a shrug. Speaking to home remodelers recently, Gateriewictz, president of the sales and marketing consulting organization Strategees & Associates in Drexel Hill, offered a new tool for selling an updated kitchen or a new deck: body language. Remodelers aren't necessarily known for their psychological acumen or their business sense, said Vince Green, vice president of the Bucks-Montgomery chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, which sponsored the seminar in Lansdale earlier this month.

In one fashion ad, which appeared in Gentlemen's Quarterly, a lithe young model stands provocatively, his eyes closed, his arms raised so that his sweater rises just enough to show a hairy stomach; his jogging pants hang off his hips. If that sounds a bit racy, consider Tanline's thong bikini print ad, which ran in men's exercise magazines. The ad includes three men posed so that their muscles ripple; each wears a thong shown from a different, but equally sensual, angle. Or open the current issue of Details magazine and take a look at the pensive male model in the ad for the Cross Colours hip-hop collection.

For Rea Rossi, sound has always been a tricky thing: elusive and slippery, wrangled only with therapy, concentration, and excellent hearing aids. So Rossi, 29, an artist based in Fishtown, began contemplating how to capture it and make it tangible, solid enough to wrap around a wrist or drape over her shoulders. The resulting artworks - visualizations meant to represent sound waves created in a computer-assisted design program and 3D-printed from nylon - are somewhere on the spectrum between jewelry and sculpture.

On the first day of the Flyers' development camp, Kim Dillabaugh spent a couple of hours on the ice at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, working with a few of the organization's goaltending prospects, his most important pupil still enjoying his summer vacation. The Flyers announced last week that they had hired Dillabaugh to be their goaltending coach, handing him the responsibility for developing those prospects, yes, but also for coaxing continued excellence from the team's best and most important player last season: Steve Mason.

Everyone said the right thing. The 76ers all talked about working hard, remaining upbeat during a long, hard rebuilding process. That's what the Sixers said. Their body language revealed something totally different. It showed that this season is beginning to take a toll. It was visible on their faces Saturday in the second half of a 113-96 setback to the Detroit Pistons at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Thaddeus Young sat motionless on the scorers' table toward the end of a fourth-quarter timeout.

Thaddeus Young of the 76ers has not been one to mute his voice. But the power forward's body language after Wednesday's practice showed someone in the midst of a dreadful season. So what's the most frustrating thing for him right now? "The way we are losing," said Young, whose team is 7-19 and on a seven-game losing streak. "The first half is always great. That third quarter always takes its toll on us. You get down another 10, 15 points. It's hard to come back, sometimes, from those deficits.

PITTSFORD, N.Y. - Since he declared himself "brain-dead" the day before he missed the cut at last month's British Open, Rory McIlroy has been looking for ways to become more positive as he prepares to defend his title at the PGA Championship. He thinks he's found something. As a sportscaster once said, let's go to the videotape. "I've been watching a few videos of [a victory] last year at Kiawah and watching some videos of some of my best weeks that I've played," McIlroy said Wednesday on the eve of the season's final major.

A DAY AFTER his team had been thoroughly beaten by an Indiana Pacers group that was playing its third game in as many nights, 76ers coach Doug Collins didn't do a video-study session to point out mistakes in the 88-69 loss. In fact, he pretty much gave his team the day off, save for some light shooting and some weight lifting. Collins wanted to reflect, and remind his players of how lucky they are to have the job they do. "Last night, after the game we had to let Shelvin Mack go," Collins said Thursday.

'It's 11 o'clock. " "At night?? Did we have dinner?" Energy drinks and whiskey, plus the occasional $17-a-pack cigarette, are what these people live on. No sleep, no kindness, no food, nothing but blind ambition. Which is, as Marc Antony told us, a grievous fault, and, dude, these people pay grievously. Actually, the above-quoted conversation is one of the few person-to-person exchanges in the short moralistic comedy Assistance by Leslye Headland ( Bachelorette ), the Wilma Theater's latest, under David Kennedy's snappy direction.
