Jaimee Drakewood hurried in from the rain, eager to get to her final appointment at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Ever since her birth 23 years ago, a team of researchers has been tracking every aspect of her development - gauging her progress as an infant, measuring her IQ as a preschooler, even peering into her adolescent brain using an MRI machine. Now, after nearly a quarter century, the federally funded study was ending, and the question the researchers had been asking was answered.

He was told when the season began not to even bother coming out for the team. He decided to walk on, anyway. No one gave him much of a chance, least of all Drexel, which didn't even list him on its preseason roster. So yesterday was sweet redemption for Chris Kohles. The 6-foot-6 junior forward from Abington High picked up a crucial offensive rebound and scored what proved to be the winning basket as Drexel beat Northeastern, 71-64, to go 20-3 overall, 10-1 in the North Atlantic Conference.

Drexel's unbeaten varsity eight won its third race of the season at yesterday's sixth annual La Salle University Invitational Regatta. Boats from 22 schools participated on the Cooper River in Camden County Park.

Bucknell was many lengths back in second place and later triumphed in the women's varsity eight.

Delran's Christine Kasprzak, a three-year starting midfielder, will play her college soccer at Drexel. Kasprzak signed a letter of intent with Drexel on Thursday evening.

An unsung midfielder also known for her defensive skill, Kasprzak scored six goals as a senior. Kasprzak said she received a partial academic and a partial soccer scholarship.

An Alzheimer's disease expert at Drexel University is testing an unusual approach to the disease: giving the brain what may be a more efficient source of energy. In people with Alzheimer's and other dementias, the brain loses its ability to properly metabolize glucose early in the course of disease, said Carol Lippa. This is critical because the brain needs a lot of fuel. "The brain uses, like, 30 percent of your oxygen," she said. "Your brain is really active metabolically, so it needs a really good supply of energy.

Drexel sports-management professor Ellen Staurowsky couldn't have been surprised she'd get some pushback from NCAA attorneys when she testified Monday and Tuesday at the landmark Ed O'Bannon class-action antitrust trial. The main area she was asked to address by the plaintiffs' attorneys, she said, is whether the business practices associated with FBS football and men's basketball are consistent with the NCAA's claims about amateurism. Since Staurowsky is coauthor of a book titled College Athletes for Hire: The Evolution and Legacy of the NCAA Amateur's Myth , you can guess where she stands on the issue.

DREXEL University closed on the purchase of University City High School yesterday, netting the school district $21.1 million after closing costs and after paying off a few outstanding loans. Drexel's plans for development of the 14-acre parcel, however, are contingent on the passage of Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell's zoning bill this week, which would lift restrictions clearing the way for the university's latest venture. In an interview yesterday, Blackwell said she is confident her bill will pass Thursday, City Council's last session before summer break.

DREXEL UNIVERSITY is now poised to purchase the old University City High School property in West Philly, following an amendment to a zoning bill that was adopted in City Council yesterday. Pressures from the cash-strapped school district and its immediate need to pay its bills before the fiscal year's end pushed Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell and her team to negotiate with neighborhood community groups who had expressed concerns over Drexel's proposal. A deal was struck in the hallway outside chambers just minutes before the zoning bill went before Council for approval, clearing the way for the university to purchase the 14-acre parcel from the school district for $25 million.

Philadelphia is a great city to live in or visit, but its beauty and tranquility are being spoiled by those who selfishly ride motorcycles without legal, sound-limiting mufflers in Center City. Why doesn't the Police Department enforce the law? The quality of life in our city should not be ruined by the obnoxiously loud sound of motorcycles roaring up and down our streets. |J. Lippincott, Philadelphia Coarseness pervades daily conversations Our vernacular is becoming even more corrupt in the movies, on television, in stand-up entertainers' presentations, and even in the printed press, which often shelters the middle letters of generally undesirable words.

RASHANN LONDON was in a rush. It was a tepid, spring daybreak last April as London scurried down the gray-carpeted stairs of his brick-patterned row home in Mount Airy. He rushed to the door with his gym bag around his body, fully stocked, ready for the road. London met his coach outside his home right off Wadsworth and Michener avenues. He leapt into the black pickup and slammed his passenger door shut. But before he could depart, his cellphone chirped: buzz, buzz. He looked down to see a call from Nate London, his father.
