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.

The New York Times reported on Dec. 8 that when a CIA contra-supply plane crashed in Costa Rica, "the CIA agent in charge of the operation ordered that jaws be removed from the bodies to prevent dental identification. " Is this now standard operating procedure for our administration? While President Reagan pretends that he cares so much for Americans held hostage and for the contra cause that he covertly contradicted his own overt policies and the will of Congress, he allows other Americans to fly without parachutes (Eugene Hasenfus survived only because he bought his own)

PepsiCo was ready. Soon after President Clinton lifted the trade embargo against Vietnam, a giant Pepsi can advertisement was erected in Hanoi. It makes you wonder whether the United States really lost that war, after all. Nineteen years later, with communism all but moribund, it is hard to remember the "domino theory" and the fear of worldwide communist domination that made the quagmire that was Vietnam possible. It's about time to end the war, and go forward. President Clinton says that concerns about trade played no part in his decision - only the belief that lifting the embargo would be the best way to gain a full accounting of the 2,000-plus American servicemen still missing from that war. Maybe, but it's also clear that - 19 years later - the United States finally has come to grips with the fact that, in war, there are loose ends, and eternally unresolved issues.

"The turnaround in the semiconductor business cycle was clearly apparent in the strength of our fourth-quarter results," said C. Scott Kulicke, chairman and chief executive officer of the Willow Grove company, which makes assembly equipment for the semiconductor industry. Economic recovery in Asia played a large part in the turnaround, a company spokeswoman, Nancy Kyle, said.

Shortly after earning the greatest accomplishment of his high school career, Deptford basketball standout Rickie Crews found himself a battered champion. Crews barely had time to savor Deptford's first sectional championship after last night's 60-50 win over Camden in the NJSIAA South Jersey Group 3 final at Eastern. As the teams were shaking hands after the game, Crews was leveled by a punch in the nose from Camden senior forward MacArthur Mason. "[Mason] said a lot of stuff, and he said during the game that he would do it," said Crews, a 6-foot-6 senior who played the game of his life with 24 points, 18 rebounds and 10 blocked shots.

One second was all that separated the Morrisville Bulldogs from a road victory over Bicentennial rival Devon Prep Saturday night. But Morrisville's 62-59 lead disappeared and then so did the apparent victory when Devon Prep's Joe Maertzig's three-pointer tied the game and the Tide pulled away in overtime to triumph, 76-66. Devon Prep held a 7-point lead heading into the fourth quarter, but Morrisville put things together and outscored the Tide, 21-9, to take a 3- point lead and set up the dramatic ending.

MY GRANDMOTHER was suspicious, as Italian women of that generation tended to be. She knew about the evil eye, the prescriptions to guarantee a "masculine child," the book that interpreted your dreams. Karma was her middle name, and she understood that when you do one act in the vacuum of the universe, it will come back to you. Do a blessing, get a blessing. Lie, be lied unto. Make a victim, be a victim. Justice had its logic, and its rules, and while it might take a lifetime to taste it, there would be a sweet reckoning.

Pennsylvania's insufferably long and deeply disturbing melodrama, starring beleaguered Attorney General Kathleen Kane as she flailed about with self-inflicted wounds, is finally drawing to a close with her conviction and expected resignation. On Monday, a Montgomery County jury found her guilty on all counts involving a grand jury leak designed to embarrass an enemy. This is a victory for justice in a state where there has been too little. Kane, who was endorsed by the Inquirer in her 2012 election, wisely ended her revenge tragedy by taking the obvious next step of announcing she would step down Wednesday rather than wait for her sentencing in October.

A COACH MUST play to his strengths. But if you're Doug Pederson and offensive coordinator Frank Reich, what are they right now? Is it an offensive line that is likely to lose its right tackle for 10 games for his second PED offense in three years, and might have to throw a third-round rookie to the wolves at left guard? Is it a wide receiving corps that is starting to look as if it might be no better than it was a year ago, when it had only one player with more than 27 catches? Is it a running back group whose best player has durability issues and whose second-best player is 33 years old and is a better receiver than he is a runner?

Adam Morgan returned to triple A last month as a pitcher who appeared to be losing his footing with the Phillies. He was being shuffled between the team's starting rotation and the bullpen. The lefthander lacked an identity, which he may have rediscovered in the minor leagues. Morgan excelled with the IronPigs, registering a 2.75 ERA in five outings before rejoining the Phillies on Sunday. But the game did not quite grant him the chance to showcase his growth, as he left the game in the fourth inning after being hit on the left arm by a line drive.

Zach Eflin pitched the last few weeks with a fracture in his right foot, which was not discovered until Friday and will likely be enough to shut down the rookie pitcher for the rest of the season. The stress fracture was discovered when Eflin had an MRI on his knees. He was placed on the disabled list last week with tendinitis in both knees. Eflin said he had received treatment for the foot, not knowing it was fractured. He does not know how the injury occurred. Manager Pete Mackanin said, "It's unlikely that he will be back this year.

HARRISBURG - Testifying before a federal judge Thursday, the former head of the state's prison system and its current chief offered radically different opinions over freeing from solitary confinement a 64-year-old inmate who has spent nearly 37 years confined 23 hours a day to a 7-by-12-foot cell. Pennsylvania Corrections Secretary John Wetzel said Arthur Johnson could not be placed among the general population because he still has it in him to try to escape, and still has the capacity to kill during the attempt.

ASKED ABOUT defensive end Steven Means, Jim Schwartz suggested that reporters check with the Eagles' tight ends, because "he's been giving those guys some tough situations to handle. " You have to like a defensive coordinator who has ideas about whom you should talk to for a story. If Schwartz has any suggestions on how to craft a better lede, hey, we'll take those, too. On Monday, needing all the help we can get, with no more media access to the team before Thursday's preseason opener, we took Schwartz up on his recommendation.

There is a certain awkwardness about Uber. With a taxi or a bus, there's a professional divide that allows passengers to disassociate and pretend the person at the wheel is apart from them. With Uber, the driver could just as easily be on the stool next to you at a bar as behind the wheel of the car. He could be sucked into your life, or you into his. Matthew Cherry's new movie 9 Rides , which plays Sunday at the final day of the BlackStar Film Festival, chronicles a night in the life of one Uber driver.

The End of American Childhood A History of Parenting from Life on the Frontier to the Managed Child By Paula S. Fass Princeton University Press. 334 pp. $29.95 Reviewed by Glenn C. Althschuler Fearful that even a momentary lapse in oversight will ruin their children's future, many American parents micromanage. Others worry that "helicopter parents" may produce individuals who are overcontrolled, overindulged, and ill-prepared for a competitive world in which competence must be earned through hard work and independent thinking.

THE TEEN CHOICE Awards took on a somber tone Sunday when Jessica Alba , Ne-Yo and teenagers related to shooting victims in San Bernardino, Newtown and Orlando, called for an end to gun violence. Good luck with that. Alba and singer Ne-Yo, who performed Marvin Gaye 's "What's Going On," asked the audience to stand and for everyone to post on social media using the hashtag #StopTheViolence. Apologies. We hadn't realized they hashtagged it. Justin Timberlake also brought seriousness to the otherwise silly ceremony when Kobe Bryant gave JT the show's version of a lifetime achievement award.
