Sixers' Andre Iguodala is keeping an exclusive diary for the Daily News at the World Championships. The latest entry comes after Team USA's 70-68 win over Brazil, which means the Americans have earned a spot in the elimination round. Iguodala finished with three points - all from the free throw line - and attempted just one field goal in 29 minutes. He also had five rebounds and five steals.     I know my role on this team. The main thing is we got the win. All the other stuff doesn't matter.

The Diary of Anne Frank has become this century's primer in the illumination of the human spirit. The pages written from her hiding place in Holland have made the young - and doomed - girl the symbol of hope, love and affirmation amid devastation. Her diary, published after she disappeared in the death camps late in World War II, has been a book and the basis of films, plays and meditations. In its latest transformation, it is the basis of a series of concerts around the country to raise money for UNICEF, the United Nations relief agency for children.

There is the "let go and let God" movie. And then there is Diary of a Mad Black Woman, a "let go, let God, and let 'er rip!" affair. Produced and written by gospel-theater phenom Tyler Perry, who plays three roles, Diary is a very curious and very entertaining mix, the Labradoodle of inspirational romantic-comedy-melodramas. If John Waters spliced together the plots of Far From Heaven and Big Momma's House and let Pedro Almod?var direct, it might resemble this frisky, unpredictable genre-bender that keeps the faith as it keeps it real.

Valiant is one word for Carrie Snodgress. There are others: direct, indefatigable, thoughtful. She characterizes herself as a good listener. She's not a bad talker, either. The actress, whose quiet rage as Tina in Diary of a Mad Housewife (1970) may have created more feminists than Simone de Beauvoir inspired in her entire career, is now playing a noisy psycho-killer terrorizing Charles Bronson in Murphy's Law. What's a nice gal like her doing in a movie like this? "I'm not exactly financially solvent," Snodgress volunteers candidly from a Manhattan hotel tower, Central Park spread like a flowered carpet outside her picture window.

Sen. Bob Packwood used a curious one-two punch on national television yesterday, saying his memory was sound enough that he could categorize some diary entries as erroneous, but so dull that he drew blanks on people and events recounted in other passages. Three days after passages from his diary were made public and helped force his resignation from the Senate on Thursday, the Oregon Republican insisted that many accounts in the diary - dictated in his own voice over 25 years - were misstated or never happened.

The day after the Oscars no one in Hollywood was talking about Million Dollar Baby kayoing The Aviator. The talk was that Diary of a Mad Black Woman, a genre-bending slapstick dramedy of reconciliation written by and starring Tyler Perry, elbowed past the Will Smith romance Hitch to take in $22 million. While it's unusual for a film that's not on everybody's radar to open at No. 1, it's not as unusual as Diary itself. Faith-based without being preachy, sexy without being graphic, and as hilarious as it is serious, Diary is playing to audiences beyond its core constituency of African American women, pulling in $12 million during its second weekend.

WILMINGTON - His garden stroll with Adolf Hitler left Alfred Rosenberg invigorated. Rosenberg was already one of the most notorious and powerful Nazis, chief architect of ethnic cleansing policies and the man responsible for plundering billions of dollars of art from European Jews. At the meeting in April 1941, Hitler spoke of a larger role. "Your hour has come," he said, according to an account Rosenberg scrawled in his diary. For nearly 70 years, the infamous diary, an unprecedented insider's glimpse of the Third Reich, was lost or hidden.

Anne Marie Fahey was hungry for love. The sad, insecure woman, who lost her mother at age 9 and grew up with an alcoholic father, spent her adult life yearning for the love she never had as a child. The heartbreak and loneliness of her world came vividly to life yesterday in Superior Court as the dead woman's sister read portions of her diary during the trial of Fahey's accused killer. The entries chronicle Fahey's love affair with Thomas Capano - the 49-year-old lawyer accused of killing her in a jealous fit - and relationships with two other men, a man she dated in 1994 and her boyfriend at the time of her death in June 1996.

'Today has been a memorable day and I thank God I have been spared to see it. The day was religiously observed, all the churches were open. We had quite a jubilee in the evening. " And so began the 1863 diary of Emilie Davis, a young free black woman living in Philadelphia, as she recounted the Emancipation Proclamation. Davis' three pocket diaries - each no larger than a smartphone - span the years 1863, 1864, and 1865. Purchased by the Historical Society of Pennsylvania in 1999, the diaries provide a remarkable glimpse of Philadelphia's free black community during the Civil War. "Few diaries by young women of this period survive, even fewer from African American women," said Tamara Gaskell, public historian in residence at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities.

Princeton businesswoman Kim Pimley serves on nonprofit boards, ran for mayor a few years back, and keeps in shape by bashing a 150-pound punching bag. The type of person who runs up escalators, the 55-year-old was always overflowing with energy. Until, all of a sudden, she wasn't. She started to feel short of breath in early January, and wondered whether she had caught a bug. But she felt progressively worse, at one point unable to climb the stairs without sitting to rest halfway up. Within days she was sent to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where she received unthinkable news: A rare, aggressive disease, its cause unknown, was attacking her heart.

When Henry Mayer, chief archivist at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, first called the FBI about Alfred Rosenberg's missing diary, Robert K. Wittman, head of the art-crime team in Philadelphia, had only the broadest sense of whom Mayer was talking about. "I'd heard of [Rosenberg], and I had an idea that he was a high-ranking Nazi," Wittman recalled the other day. Mayer wanted the diary - badly. "I knew it had a lot of information," Wittman said. "Nowhere is it written down, anywhere, that Hitler ordered the killing of the Jews.

During a meeting with reporters in Boca Raton, Fla., on Tuesday, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie was asked what made him think that Howie Roseman deserved to be back in charge of the franchise's player-personnel department after Lurie had fired Chip Kelly in December. "The whole plan was for Howie to really spend the time studying state-of-the-art decision-making around the globe in sports," Lurie said. "We really opened it up, from English Premier League, NHL, NBA, MLB - try to find who the best general managers or 'head of basketball operations' were.

On the day we knew our house was sold, my husband and I held a summit. The two mission statements that emerged: 1. We'd better get our act together. 2. I would keep a log of our experience, because when things get really tough, I write. Thirteen years later, those notes have emerged from the innards of an old computer. And the tale of our departure, from a big old house with seven bedrooms, to a sleek condominium with three, is the stuff of sitcoms. We had precisely four weeks to pack it up after a 28-year stay.

That's been the trans life of Dréa Baldini, the face and owner of André Richard and ARS Parlour in Midtown Village. "It was challenging at first because, you know, hormones can make you moody and put you on edge," Baldini said.

Homage to Eleanor Sokoloff. It's not often that eight busy pianists gather to honor their teacher. But eight is a significant number for Eleanor Sokoloff: one student for each decade she has taught at the Curtis Institute of Music. All gather at 3:30 p.m. Sunday for a tribute concert at the Barnes Foundation on the Parkway. Playing a special Bösendorfer (the piano maker's 50,000th instrument), Sokoloff students Nina Hu, Bolai Cao, Zitong Wang, Daniel Hsu, Hugh Sung, Jenny Chen, Min Kwon, and Susan Starr will perform Rachmaninoff, Chopin, Liszt, Brahms, and others.

First in an occasional series documenting André Baldini's transformation over the next two years. The moment André Baldini swiveled around in the chair, faced the mirror, and witnessed the mousy brown hair land coquettishly over one eye, it seemed the time was right to - finally - face the world as a woman. It's not that Baldini, who has since decided to use the pronoun she , is completely satisfied with the look that's been cultivated since deciding to transition three months ago. Her face is still mannish.
