'Give me a broken system, and I see the problem really easily," says Mark Jessen , a Palo Alto, Calif.-based IT technology consultant for global business-software maker SAP , on a visit last week to the company's North America headquarters in Newtown Square. Jessen is one of 100 people SAP has hired in its Autism at Work program since 2012. The first few hires were in India. SAP says it has developed supports to help autistic people cope with office demands they may find stressful, so they can apply their abilities to fixing software errors and other tasks.

Anyone interested in the future of new music in the city might have paid close attention to Timothy Weiss' dates last weekend with Orchestra 2001. The ensemble's search for a new artistic leader hasn't exactly gone as planned - snow prevented one candidate's appearance, and another withdrew - but Weiss reminded listeners this was less a search for conducting competence than for taste. It's safe to consider Sunday night's program at Christ Church Neighborhood House an expression of Weiss' interest in a particular aesthetic.

From the ballads sung by convicts in Australian penal colonies to "Folsom Prison Blues," song has been a means for incarcerated people to express their feelings about being locked up. Visual artist Erik Ruin and vocalist Gelsey Bell explore those thoughts and emotions in Prisoner's Song , which they'll perform at the Rotunda on Friday. The show, directed by Rick Burkhardt, uses Ruin's meticulously cut shadow puppets, which often resemble intricate woodcut images, and other projections to accompany a song cycle drawing on traditional folk ballads, poetry, archival sources, and audio interviews Ruin conducted with people who have spent time in prison.

NEW YORK - La Salle has been playing in the Atlantic Ten since 1995-96. During that time the Explorers have won more than one game in the conference tournament exactly once. That was in 2002, the first of coach Billy Hahn's three seasons, when they beat Fordham and Temple at the Spectrum before getting sent home by Richmond the semifinals. Thursday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, in the last of the four second-round matchups, the Explorers had an opportunity to do it again, three years after they'd won three NCAA games in five days.

NEW YORK - La Salle played 13 road games this season. The Explorers won one. And that was in late November, against Division III Rowan, where coach John Giannini had won a national championship 20 years earlier. But they'd won two of their last three coming into the 40th Atlantic 10 Tournament, which for whatever reason isn't being played at Gola Arena. It's been a forgettable season for a program that made a captivating three-win run to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tourney as a 13 seed in 2013, while it awaits the addition of three promising transfers who were forced to sit this journey out. The last time the Explorers lost more times was 1995-96, when they went 6-24 in their inaugural season in the A-10 after leaving the Midwest Collegiate Conference following a demoralizing three-year stay.

But they'd won two of their last three going into the 40th Atlantic Ten tournament.

They'd lost to the Dukes in Western Pennsylvania in late January, by 27. The Explorers (9-21)

LA SALLE'S Hank Davis has appeared in two games this season, playing a total of five minutes. He missed his only shot, and picked up one foul. He still says he's living his dream. "Definitely," insisted the 5-11 junior walk-on, without hesitating. "This is what I wanted to do. When you're an athlete, something would be missing if I wasn't part of a team. It's something I love. I always like to be busy working anyway. So when I got this opportunity I couldn't turn it down. "When I came here, they'd just had that Sweet 16 run. To keep my career going was just awesome.
