She enjoys listening to music, singing, gymnastics, reading and playing board games. An ambitious teenager, her hobbies include photography and learning to play several musical instruments.

RE JULY 24 cover story ("Between a Rock and a Hard Place") and accompanying photo (by the way, the headline is a riot) about Kobe giving his beauteous wife, Vanessa, an 8-carat purple diamond, one of the world's rarest jewels, worth $4 million: Who really cares, with all the poor starving children in Africa, AIDS scouring the earth, even in this country, but especially Africa, you'd think we'd all be disgusted with such an extravagant, ostentatious display...

Discount diamond dealer Ron Perlstein was placed on four years' probation today and ordered to work out a "fair and equitable, straightforward" settlement with more than 600 customers he swindled. Municipal Judge J. Earl Simmons announced his decision after Perlstein, 34, pleaded "nolo contendere" (no contest) to 613 counts of deceptive business practices. Before Perlstein entered his plea, which is equivalent to pleading guilty, Simmons dismissed felony charges of theft, tampering with records and securing documents by deception.

Tough-talking gangsters, dangerous gunplay and frenetic camera work highlight "Snatch" (VHS: priced for rental; DVD: $27.99), Guy Ritchie's follow-up to his indie hit "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. " Similar in tone but with a bigger cast and larger palette, "Snatch" follows a fight-fixing ring and a bag of pilfered diamonds from one hoodlum to another. Our narrator is the likable thug Turkish (Ritchie regular Jason Statham), who recruits a mush-mouthed Gypsy boxer (played hilariously by Brad Pitt)

THE STIRRING, philosophically minded Swedish drama "Simon and the Oaks" covers 13 years, during which the title character grows from a boy, played by Jonatan S. Wachter, to a man, played by Bill Skarsgard. In the process, young Simon Larsson weathers some pretty profound storms, puberty not included. (The film jumps forward in time at one point, leaving out a substantial chunk of Simon's adolescence.) That World War II is one of those storms is mitigated by the fact that Simon is a Swede, living in a country that managed to maintain its neutrality, while neighboring Norway and Denmark were occupied by the Nazis.

With the addition of righthander Scott Mathieson to the active roster, the Phillies now boast two Canadians (infielder Pete Orr is the other.) Only the Minnesota Twins (Justin Morneau, Rene Tosoni) and the Seattle Mariners (Erik Bedard, Michael Saunders) can say the same. The all-time leader in games played by a Canadian is 1,988 by Larry Walker. He's the hits and home runs leader, too. But Ferguson Jenkins is the only Canadian-born player in the Hall of Fame. He, of course, began his career with the Phillies in 1965.

A New York diamond merchant was robbed of more than $400,000 worth of gems and was severely beaten yesterday in a bold, daytime robbery in a Center City office building. Mark Indenbaum, 67, was on his way to show diamonds to a potential customer inside the Washington Square Building on 7th Street near Chestnut about 8:15 a.m., police said. There are several retail jewelers in the building. As Indenbaum was getting off the elevator at the fifth floor, police said, he was approached by a husky white man of about 30 who beat him back into the elevator with a blunt instrument.

Detectives Arthur Root and Ken McCann always use the diamond to crack their cases. It works like a gem, but this diamond doesn't sparkle - it deduces. "Most missing-person cases are diamonds," Root said, turning a square napkin diagonally to illustrate his model. He pointed to the top corner of the diamond. "You start with a phone call from the client here, and then you simply build up a data base, until you get out to these points," Root said, moving his finger to the center of the napkin.

Temple linebacker Tyler Matakevich enters his senior season with more career tackles (355) than any active college player. The closest pursuer, Mason Monheim of Illinois, is 61 tackles behind. Yet when Matakevich was a senior at St. Joseph's High School in Trumbull, Conn., he did as much hitting on the baseball diamond as he did on the football field. The 6-foot-1, 232-pound Matakevich was so proficient in baseball that even as late as his senior year in high school, he wasn't sure what sport to pursue.

Jon Cole wasn't supposed to start. He didn't expect to finish. But the junior righthander went the distance Sunday night in leading Bishop Eustace Prep to a 4-1 victory over Eastern in the championship game of the 42d annual Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic. "I didn't think I would go all seven," Cole said after pitching a four-hitter and allowing just one unearned run. Junior catcher Nate Steele drove in two runs and senior first baseman Ryan DiMeo scored two runs as Bishop Eustace (20-5)

Saturday felt like a school day to Nick Droboniku. The Mainland pitcher went to bed before 10:30 on Friday night and was up at 7:15 the following morning. He got to school Saturday for an 8:15 bus to Deptford, where he started a Diamond Classic quarterfinal against Kingsway at 10:30. "I'm not a fan of the morning games," Droboniku said. All that said, if he was tired, you wouldn't have been able to tell. Just five minutes past noon - mere moments after he struck out a batter to strand the bases to seal Mainland's 3-2 win - Droboniku yelled and clenched his right fist.

After fouling off two bunt attempts in falling behind 0-2 in the count, Welsh lined an RBI triple to power Northern Burlington County to a 6-4 victory over Haddonfield in nine innings in the quarterfinals of the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic on Saturday. "That's Kevin," Northern Burlington coach Rich Doppler said of his senior shortstop. Welsh, the team's No. 9 hitter, collected a double and triple and scored two runs as Northern Burlington (22-3)

It has been a season of big hits for Joe Massing and big wins for the Kingsway baseball team. But no hit made more of an impact - on a key game, the Dragons' season and coach Ian Enders' right hand - than Massing's home run in the first round of Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic last Saturday against Ocean City. "He about broke my hand rounding third," Enders said of Massing's celebratory slap. Massing's three-run home run in the first inning powered Kingsway to a 7-2 victory over Ocean City and propelled the Dragons into Saturday morning's second-round clash with Mainland at Deptford.

When the Gloucester Catholic baseball team looks back at past performance, it's almost always to draw strength and confidence from prior success. The Rams' mindset was different on Saturday. "We had some extra motivation," Gloucester Catholic senior catcher Tre Todd said of the team's struggles in the first round of the Joe Hartmann Diamond Classic over the previous three seasons. Todd drove in three runs and junior right-hander Tyler Mondile pitched a one-hitter as Gloucester Catholic beat Lenape 11-0 in a Diamond Classic opener that was shortened to five innings by the 10-run rule.

It's easy to see that Darnell Maisonet is a terrific baseball player. It's easy to hear that, too. "He never shuts up," Winslow Township coach Keith Regn said of his senior centerfielder and leadoff hitter. Regn was offering a compliment, because Maisonet is loud in the best kind of baseball way - issuing a steady stream of near-nonsensical but relentlessly positive chatter and unwavering support for his teammates. "I just love the game," Maisonet said. "I love to play and I love to win and I love to see my teammates do well.

With his deep, talky vocals, grandiose musicality, and catalog of hits, Neil Diamond has a special foothold in the marketplace, on showy display Sunday night at the Wells Fargo Center. He was a swinging pop songwriter of the 1960s Brill Building era, a self-conscious post-folkie poet in the late '60s and early '70s, a prince of schmaltz and king of AOR soft rock in the late '70s through the '90s, and a journeyman who returned to his roots in the 2000s. His Melody Road of 2014 recalls his Technicolor arrangements and dramatic anthems of the '70s, the pomp of Hot August Night . He reminded Sunday's audience that that album was from 43 years ago - then launched into the weird, winding baroque of "Crunchy Granola Suite" and the quasi-gospel piano of "Holly Holy.

JIMMY HERRON might be the city's best current wide receiver who won't play college football. Truthfully, that's because the 6-1, 185-pound senior is also a dynamic centerfielder who's headed to Duke when his days at La Salle High are over. When that time comes, Herron could stake a claim as the city's best pass catcher - ever. Well, at least when it comes to catching touchdowns, nobody has done it more often. One thing for sure, Herron is our latest Player of the Week. The city's all-time leader in touchdown receptions added four more in the Explorers' 35-31, come-from-behind shocker against previously undefeated Archbishop Wood.
