Shareholders at Continental Airlines Inc. and UAL Corp. approve a deal to form the world's biggest airline. Continental officials announced preliminary results of voting during a shareholder meeting Friday in Houston. United shareholders approved it at a meeting near Chicago. The votes clear the way for the $3 billion stock swap to close in about two weeks. It likely will be some time before passengers notice much difference when they fly Continental or United. The combined airline will be called United and based in United's hometown of Chicago, run by Continental's CEO.

They came, they listened, and they caught some rays. More than 8,000 sun worshipers descended Sunday on West Chester's Everhart Park for the 11th annual Turk's Head Music Festival. Stretched out on beach towels and blankets, they basked in the sun while sampling tunes from 19 of the area's hottest bands. "You would have thought you were in the '60s there," said Kathleen McBratnie, director of the West Chester Recreation Department, which hosted the event. "It was just a real nice, laid-back day. " Along with the nine hours of music, the festival featured 75 booths with venders offering everything from beaded jewelry and incense to free health and stress screenings.

Zairian soukous star Kanda Bongo Man made his Philadelphia debut Tuesday at the North Star Bar by playing eight songs of roughly the same harmonic design, the same tempo and the same type of call and response between singers. There wasn't one dull moment. In other hands, such repetition would equal boredom. Kanda Bongo Man and his seven-piece outfit used the sameness to create an inescapable trance state in which the slightest rhythmic shift rippled with seismic significance, and dancing - or some kind of body movement - was mandatory.

ince moving to Los Angeles, guitarist and composer Skip Heller has made himself a cataloger of the eclectic. Without kitsch, the former Philadelphian has filled his jazz music with Mexican garage rock, oceanic exotica, klezmer, rockabilly, and cartoony film and TV soundtracks. "I'm not a big one for looking at other people's careers as a blueprint for my own," says Heller, 38, of his past music and collaborations. "You learn to trust your own taste. " No matter how his albums run - whether the creaky country of 1998's St. Christopher's Arms or 2002's blues-bouncing Homegoing - Heller, who will make a rare area visit Saturday at Ortlieb's, remains truest to one sound: the Philly jazz-organ combo he includes on each CD he records.

Let's assume for a moment the near-impossible: Out there, among youngish contemporary Philadelphia audiences, there may be someone who has yet to experience the guts and glamour of a Martha Graham Cracker Cabaret. This year marks 10 years since Pig Iron Theatre Company cofounder Dito van Reigersberg donned a wig and an evening gown, put a clever spin on the name of his legendary former teacher at the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance, and strutted onstage at L'Etage, the red-velvet-draped jewel box upstairs from Creperie Beau Monde, for the first of what would become his regular second-Thursday gigs.

Korean flavors this year have stepped boldly into the mainstream, but the tradition of tabletop "BBQ" has ironically faded to nonexistence in Center City. Of course, excellent examples still reside in the charcoal-fired braziers of North Philly's best - Kim's, Every Day Good House, Seo Ra Bol. But sometimes a road trip just isn't happening. So the revival of the Miga name in a new space off Hamilton Street is welcome news. The reboot comes from Jason Kang, 25, a first-time restaurateur (and publisher of the Korean Philadelphia Times)

When the season started, Tommy Joseph was a converted catcher hanging onto a roster spot at triple A and Ryan Howard an aging slugger playing to the end of his massive contract. They are an imperfect combination. But, for the last six weeks, they have formed the most productive first baseman in baseball. It is a small sample size, although it is one that could at least provide a road map for 2017. Since July 1, Joseph and Howard have crushed 16 homers, which is more than seven teams have received from their first basemen all season.

The conversation lasts but a few moments. One St. Joseph's player leaving the court, the other getting out there. Point guards passing in the night. Or maybe it will be in the huddle during a timeout. The passing on of a thought about how defenders are defending, how screens are being handled. What's really going on: Two players are merging their brains. How did this happen? A point guard from New York and another from Philly sharing a position at St. Joe's? That's cats and dogs living in harmony, isn't it?

THIS WAS always the situation the Flyers and their two top-line stars would be in when this offseason started. Jakub Voracek's 81 points last season and three straight seasons of solid production made it obvious he wasn't going to hit free agency when his four-year deal ran out after next season. The only question that needed an answer was how much the right wing, who turns 26 next Saturday, would command from the Flyers. That question was answered last week when general manager Ron Hextall locked in the Czech Republic native by extending him through the 2024 season with a salary-cap hit of $8.25 million per year, just under the $8.275 million of his linemate, captain Claude Giroux.

WHEN CRAIG BERUBE plugged Scott Hartnell to play alongside Wayne Simmonds and Brayden Schenn last week, the critics came out of the woodwork to point out that it's a line full of similar playing styles. Berube does not deny that. In fact, that's what he likes about his newest combination. Last night, against the Capitals, they also happened to be one of the Flyers' best lines - until Schenn left the game late in the second period after a nasty charge from Tom Wilson. "It's a big line," Berube said.

THE MAYOR and City Council agree that the school district needs more money. After that, they part ways - once again. Mayor Nutter has proposed three solutions to the district's request for $60 million: increase delinquent tax collections to raise $28 million; up the across-the-bar drink tax from 10 percent to 15 percent to raise about $22 million; impose a $2-a-pack local tax on cigarettes sold in Philadelphia to raise $45 million this year....

For those of us whose packing includes a just-in-case stash of dining utensils, here's an excellent alternative to raiding the kitchen drawers or making due with those awful plastic knife-fork-spoon sets you get at carryout places. Zelco offers Mangia!, a lightweight, stainless-steel flatware set made to be mobile. The fork and spoon nest together in a slot in the knife handle. A sturdy plastic snap-on cover holds the combo firmly in place and keeps the business end of the utensils clean in transport and storage (only the knife handle is left exposed)
