Glossy magazine advertisements, slick pamphlets and roadside billboards traditionally have been the place for vivid, colorful pictures promoting your business. Some companies, though, are now taking a downsized approach to such marketing - downsized to about two-by-three inches. Business cards with pictures on them have moved into corporate America, and the companies selling them say that the cards are "certainly the wave of the future. " "Everything's going visual," said Levander Taliaferro, who recently launched his company - New Concept Business Imaging, at Lansdowne Avenue and Frazier Street in West Philadelphia - to sell the cards.

They do not fit easily into your pocket or purse, and you certainly would not want to carry more than a couple with you, but John Novarina is convinced that his "electronic business card" will be a successful marketing tool. About four months ago, Novarina, 34, of Royersford, Montgomery County, began his one-man operation, eCard-etc., creating floppy disks as a replacement for business cards. The label on the disk conveys the usual information - name, address, e-mail, fax number - found on a business card.

You walk through the glass and wooden doors, and the sight hits you: four glass shelves filled with an array of business cards. But they aren't the typical 3 1/2-by-2-inch cards with name, rank and phone number. There's a neon-green alien printed on a plastic card that feels like the top of a mousepad. There's one card that looks like a check - and was designed to be ripped from a miniature checkbook. There's a folded one for a writer that reveals a tiny typewriter when opened; the paper inside the machine slowly churns out the question "Am I the type writer you're looking for?"

When Aretha Franklin's chart-topper "A Rose Is Still a Rose" shipped to radio stations, instead of a run-of-the-mill round compact disc, DJs found a striking red CD that had been cut into the shape of a blossom. When Miller Brewing Co. wanted to hype its responsible-drinking campaign, it sent distributors something that looked like a credit card with a hole in the middle. It was a pocket-size CD-ROM crammed with multimedia features, including full-color animation, narration, and hyperlinks to Miller's Web site.

They say, if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. Ask Chaka Fattah Jr., currently defending himself against charges of bank fraud, tax evasion, and stealing government funds, and he just might tell you there's truth in that adage. Prosecutors may beg to differ. Since a judge approved his request to represent himself last month, Fattah - the 32-year-old son of Rep. Chaka Fattah (D., Pa.) - has flooded the court with dozens of motions that he hopes will defang the case against him. Call it defense by a thousand pinpricks.

If Mayor Nutter's personal aide has one rule to live by, it's this: "Don't mess with the playlist. " "There's some room for requests, but he drives the music choice," said Luke Butler, 28, who recently finished a two-year gig as Nutter's special assistant — a job that meant he spent more time with the mayor than anyone else in city government, traveling with him to meetings and events and listening to Nutter relive his former DJ days in...

Gwendolyn Faison is used to marking milestones. Camden's first female mayor marked another one over the weekend: Her 90th birthday was Saturday. On Sunday, she celebrated at Camden's Tenth Street Baptist Church, where she has been a member for more than 60 years. Church members, family, and local politicians honored her. But she told the roughly 80 people assembled Sunday she did not need speeches or honors for her birthday. "All you have to do is serve," she said. Those who know her say Faison is a good example of what it means to serve her community.

John Spagnola, the Philadelphia Eagles tight end, may have been the only man there without a tie - and without a business card. At 6-foot-4, he towered above the crowd, in an open-collared shirt and wool jacket, filling his coat pockets with business cards, but offering none in return. "Just send it to me at the stadium," he told people. "Care of the Eagles. " "I have no idea why I was invited," Spagnola said. "I'm getting business-carded to death. But why not? That's what it's all about.

COVERING POLITICS isn't much different than covering the mob. It's mostly backslapping and backstabbing, interrupted by the occasional indictment. And everyone eats well. So we weren't at all surprised when reputed mobster John "Johnny Chang" Ciancaglini called us the other day to chat about the Democratic primary. Ciancaglini wanted us to know that he's not a blood relative of William "Billy C.

Ellen Dressler puts people's business cards to work for them. For a fee, she places the cards on bulletin boards that she has installed in restaurants, where people often wait for tables with nothing to do. The boards offer captive audiences a way to pass the time and, at the same time, provide neighborhood firms with a low-cost form of advertising. Dressler's goal is to expand the distribution of business cards for her clients - and her company, American Home Services, was formed last year to do just that.

THEY LOOK MORE like siblings than father and son. They act like it, too, the way they playfully rib each other during a lunch break at a deli near Community College of Philadelphia. When I ask the guys for their business cards, Darryl Irizarry Sr. cracks wise. "I don't get cards," he says, as he watches his namesake, Darryl Irizarry Jr., produce his. "I get calls. " The father, 49, is a building engineer at CCP. When he's not working on equipment, he's monitoring it in the boiler room of a building on the main campus.

WASHINGTON - With nods to history and their future plans, three new members of Congress from the Philadelphia area took oaths of office Tuesday, marking sweeping change to the area's delegation. U.S. Reps. Brendan Boyle (D.) of Philadelphia, Ryan Costello (R.) of West Chester, and Tom MacArthur (R.) of Toms River, N.J., started their House careers as snow coated the Capitol grounds. Counting U.S. Rep. Donald Norcross (D.) of Camden, there are four lawmakers from the area at the beginning of their tenures in Congress.

Jonah Selber is an unlikely philanthropist. When he was born, doctors told his parents that he was severely retarded, so damaged that he should be put in an institution for the rest of his life. "Thank goodness," his mother said, "I was young, strong, in denial, and unwilling to accept that condemnation. " Judith Creed, a speech language pathologist, has dedicated most of her life to helping her son overcome a daunting array of physical and intellectual problems. She stood by him through years of therapy and multiple surgeries, enrolled him in schools where he learned to become more independent, and, several years ago, even gave him one of her kidneys.

JASON "WOLF" PARKER, a Philadelphia man arrested this spring for allegedly impersonating a lawyer, was convicted yesterday of contempt of court for defying a judge's order to stay out of the city's Criminal Justice Center. Before being led from the courtroom by a deputy sheriff, Parker - sounding like a lawyer - told Common Pleas Judge Rayford Means that he objected and would be appealing. Though the contempt conviction is only a misdemeanor punishable by just under six months in jail, Parker's legal troubles are far from over.

PHILADELPHIA police last night were questioning two men in connection with a carjacking Friday that killed three children at a fruit stand, critically injured their mother and broke the city's heart. "We are talking to two persons of interest as we speak," Homicide Captain James Clark said shortly after 9 p.m. He did not identify the men, but said that a news conference might be held today. Sources told 6ABC that one man turned himself in yesterday with his mother and a pastor, and that another man was picked up by U.S. Marshals and Philly police around 8 p.m. on 6th Street near Cambria, in the Fairhill section of North Philly.

Patrick Sanyeah was in the thick of the angry protest for much of the afternoon. But unlike most others, his loss was deeply personal and devastating. Two of the victims in Saturday's fatal fire in Southwest Philadelphia were his children, Patrick, 4, and Taj Jacque, who was less than two months old. "The fire department right here, you let four kids burn into ashes," Patrick Sanyeah said during Monday's protest, wiping away tears as he chanted with the crowd. City officials defended the fire department's response -- in a community meeting, on the street ravaged by Saturday's fire and, at day's end, in a news conference that drew Mayor Nutter, the fire commissioner, and others.
