  Aria Health has proposed a "health-care village" for a 41-acre property in Lower Makefield Township, Bucks County. Aria's previous plan for the site in 2008 called for a hospital and medical-office complex, but that was stymied by community opposition. Aria officials presented the new concept Wednesday evening at a board of supervisors meeting, describing a potential development with medical offices, a physical rehabilitation facility, ambulatory care center, and clinical space.

An editorial published Monday about the Philadelphia Planning Commission's building-height proposals improperly failed to note that Mayor Goode's 1984 "skyscraper zone" was an interim concept. It was intended to control building heights until a Center City master plan with height rules was completed by the commission, working with the mayor's administration.

A concept drawing to expand the Longwood Inn restaurant and motel from 30 to 184 rooms was approved by the East Marlborough Township Planning Commission Tuesday night. Ted Skiadas, owner of the inn on Route 1, east of Schoolhouse Road, presented a land development concept calling for expansion over 10 acres - two two-story buildings with a total of 80 motel rooms, three buildings with a total of 48 suites and 26 townhouse-style cottages. The commission approved the concept by a 4-to-2 vote, and Skiadas said he would bring the concept before the supervisors at their meeting tomorrow.

Members of the Oxford Circle Townwatch were among townwatch groups in the Northeast that participated in the fourth annual National Night Out Tuesday to get people involved in fighting crime. The townwatch concept urges neighbors to watch each other's properties and to notify authorities when things seem wrong or out of place. Homeowners had been asked to turn on their outside lights and to sit on their porches during the event.

Revel, Revel, Revel . . . . That's all the noise one hears these days coming from the Jersey Shore - especially when it concerns new prospects for dining. Granted, the gleaming $2.4 billion tower of Atlantic City's latest casino resort is hard to miss. And with more than a dozen restaurant concepts involving some very big names, its spring debut has no doubt been the biggest food news to hit this casino town since the Borgata began A.C.'s high-end remake. Jose Garces should have Philadelphians' attention right off the bat with three restaurants: an outsize version of Amada with ocean views and flamenco; a jumbo Village Whiskey clone for gourmet burgers and booze; plus Nuevo Mex concept with a Distrito Cantina serving margaritas and a replica Guapo's Taco truck.

The Inquirer is dramatically revamping its commentary pages starting Monday. The old concept of separate editorial and op-ed pages is being replaced by a new design that melds the two. Look for even livelier pages that include same-day responses to editorials and more interaction with the Editorial Board's "Say What?" blog, which you can find at www.philly.com/opinion . But don't let the new format fool you. Your favorite features and writers will be here, and some new ones added, including a daily poll.

FOR CHEFS, the number 86 holds such a sinister, teeth-chattering connotation that the eight might as well be replaced with double sixes. It's restaurant slang for a dish or ingredient that's been completely shot, a state of cupboard's-bare vulnerability brought about by poor planning, lackluster resource management, an unexpected slam of business or any combination of these things. Marshall Green speaks for most chefs when he calls a kitchen hampered by a list of nixed items his "absolute worst nightmare.

Paul Baran, 84, whose work with packaging data in the 1960s is credited with playing a role in the later development of the Internet, died of complications from lung cancer Saturday at his home in Palo Alto, Calif. Mr. Baran, who was raised in West Philadelphia and earned his bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Drexel University, is best known for the idea of "packet-switching," in which data are bundled into small packages and sent through a network. He outlined the concept while working on Cold War issues for the Rand Corp.

Every now and then, I like to suggest surefire concepts by which you readers can make millions of dollars without doing any honest work. Before I tell you about the newest concept, I'd like to apologize to those of you who were stupid enough to attempt the previous one, which, as you may recall, involved opening up Electronic Device Destruction Centers. The idea there was that consumers would bring their broken electronic devices, such as television sets and VCRs, to the destruction centers, where trained personnel would whack them (the devices)

"Music from all over the world, not just one sound," is the concept behind AfroRikan Vybe, set for the first Friday each month at Fluid, says Dennis Perez, who spins with Rich Medina. "I thought Philly needed that. " Three years ago, Perez fathered AfroRikan Vybe, recruiting Medina and Eric Colon. It started as a weekly party, though as of late, it has been curtailed to once a month. Perez, from Brooklyn, thought his concept would get lost in New York's night scene, so he brought it to Philly.

An entrepreneur's life can get mighty lonely, especially in the early start-up years, when employees are few. For many, a lot of time is spent with just a laptop for company. That sense of isolation can be even worse in the suburbs. There, the opportunity to bounce ideas off someone or network isn't as simple as stepping outside and walking a few dozen paces in any direction to a coffee shop. Also not in abundance are the coworking spaces that have been steadily multiplying in downtown Philadelphia since the first, Indy Hall, opened in Old City in 2007.

IT MUST have seemed like a win-win at the time. Clothing retailer Lands' End, desperate to refurbish its image into something relevant and chic, featured an interview with legendary feminist Gloria Steinem in its spring catalog, complete with a photo spread of Steinem modeling items from the firm's latest collection. Steinem, for her part, got her new book plugged in the catalog copy. Now it's all turned into a spectacular embarrassment. Faced with an explosion of outrage from anti-abortion groups and customers, Lands' End has pulled the feature from its website and even appears to have canceled an arrangement to donate $3 to the ERA Coalition/Fund for Women's Equality every time a customer ordered the group's monogram stitched into an item.

The concept behind Maark Concept - a South Street showroom where emerging designers offer a curated selection of deliberately stitched, athletically inspired, and slightly ethereal clothing and accessories - had been stewing for quite some time. That's why, when Ethan Nguyen spotted, post-brunch, a vacant storefront one Sunday afternoon in December, he called the landlord the next day. "I knew just the people I wanted to make this happen with me," said Nguyen, 31, a University of Pennsylvania epidemiologist-turned-luxe-unisex-clothing-designer of the brand Sans Marque Sans Marque  (think T-shirt tunics fashioned from cotton jersey, and trousers with roomy front folds that have a kilt effect)

A Philadelphia man has filed a lawsuit in federal court claiming that Lee Daniels stole the concept for his hit show "Empire" from him during a "Philly Pitch" event organized by the Greater Philadelphia Film Office in 2008. In his suit, which was filed on Friday, Clayton Prince Tanksley - an actor who once played Denise Huxtable's boyfriend on "The Cosby Show" - said "Empire" infringes on the show he created, called "Cream," which he had copyrighted in 2005. Named as defendants in the suit are Daniels, co-creator Danny Strong, Twenty-First Century Fox, the Greater Philadelphia Film Office and the film office's director, Sharon Pinkenson.

Room 268 at Conestoga High School was bursting with passion for a hodgepodge of ideas. Hip-hop as a lens for life. The case for more funding for NASA. The argument for paying student athletes.

One by one, 11 students presented ideas to their classmates in the style of TED Talks, the engaging lectures about a variety of topics, many given by experts.

Adapted from a recent online discussion.   Question: I grew up in the Midwest, and we always called adults Mr./Mrs./Miss Lastname. We now live in the South, and the thing down here is to have kids call adults Mr./Miss Firstname. This feels too informal to us, and we would prefer our kids use the Mr./Mrs./Miss Lastname construction (with the exception of close family friends who are just Firstname). I would think it's my choice to have my kids use Mrs. Lastname, but by that logic, the other mom could have her kids use Miss Firstname for me, but to me that is not super respectful.

Have you ever wondered what race would mean if you couldn't see? Asia Friedman did, and, because she's a cultural sociologist at the University of Delaware, she could do what most people wouldn't. She asked 25 blind people, most of whom lived in Pennsylvania and Delaware, whether race mattered to them. It did. "They do try to assign race, and I also found that they're not color-blind in that idealized sense of not having race matter in any way," said Friedman, who presented her study Tuesday at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association in Chicago.

Rauh, 48, of Williamstown, has been in the supermarket business for three decades and once managed the Acme in Mays Landing and the now-closed Super Fresh in Northfield.

UNION, N.J. - When they took the field in the bottom of the sixth inning, they were six outs away from the first state title for a girls' team in their school's history. They were so close they might have imagined the feel of the trophy in their hands and the exultation of thrusting their right index fingers in the air while posing for pictures. "We were right there," St. Joseph senior catcher Carly Testa said, tears forming on the corners of her eyes after the final game of her illustrious career.
