Does man use tools or vice-versa? This question haunts 2001: A Space Odyssey, Stanley Kubrick's masterwork about the evolution of humanity from monkey to man and of tools from club to computer. The Chestnut Hill Film Group is offering a rare opportunity to see Kubrick's 1968 masterpiece on the big screen, and to understand that no one imagined the way the future looked more evocatively than the filmmaker in his hugely influential, if sometimes impenetrable, space opera. 2001: A Space Odyssey is scheduled to be shown at the Chestnut Hill branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia.

It is of great importance to follow the news reports such as those published in The Inquirer about the emerging countries of South America - Argentina, Chile, Brazil and Peru, among others - because the true future of the United States lies with the republics south of the border. It is not far away the day when Hispanics of U.S. citizenship will represent America before the Latin American republics, hence the need to speak the Spanish language on the part of those willing to travel, do business or settle there.

'You can never plan the future by the past," said Edmund Burke. Too often, however, government plans for the future are based only on past experiences. When government does look forward, it may be for only one budget cycle. As a departure from this norm, the city controller's office undertook a project to make suggestions for the future based on an analysis of the challenges and opportunities that await Philadelphia in the next century.The product of that project became the book, "Philadelphia: A New Urban Direction.

More people - but with smaller family sizes - living in ever-bigger houses on larger lots are adding up to a loss of Chester County's open spaces, natural features and farmland. It's a trend that county government is seeking to reverse, through guidelines for future growth, planning money for municipalities, and preservation of open space. Next month, the county will hold a summit meeting on the issue. A conference is set for 4:30 to 9 p.m. Monday, March 31, at Unionville High School to discuss the successes and failures of the county's preservation efforts and to chart local and countywide strategies to guide growth.

Bickler, the transit authority's director of long-range planning in its Planning, Development and Real Estate Department. Bickler, 42, of Ardmore, has held the newly created position for two months. While he is not unaware of SEPTA's present problems, his job is to frame the future by creating a long-range plan, which he said also would serve as a marketing tool.

Storytelling. That's what the ASNE-APME-APPM News Leadership Conference, just concluded here in Philadelphia, was all about. It's the third year these three respected orgs - the American Society of News Editors (formed in 1922); the Associated Press Media Editors (formed at a bar in 1930; yearly meetings since 1933); and the Associated Press Photo Managers (2001) - have thrown a meeting together.

Joan Mazzotti always has a story about a student who has faced tough circumstances but has persevered to get to and through college - with her organization's help. In Mazzotti's more than 16 years at the helm of Philadelphia Futures, the nonprofit organization has shepherded more than 500 students through cash-strapped public high schools in the city and on to college. Among them were two Haitian-born orphans whom she and her husband mentored. Now, Mazzotti herself is preparing to take a culminating step.

The final price tag for Carson Wentz is rather remarkable when you look at it from the big picture: Sam Bradford, Byron Maxwell, Kiko Alonso, a first-round selection in 2017, a second-round selection in 2018, a third-round selection in 2016 and $10.3 million in dead salary-cap space (for the Bradford and Maxwell contracts). If you figure that the value of the two other first-round picks involved in the maneuvering cancels each other out (the 2017 first-rounder they acquired from the Vikings for Bradford, and the opportunity cost of the No. 15 pick in the 2016 draft, which ultimately became Wentz)

If Cory Little wasn't so focused on the road ahead, the Boys' Latin junior could retire right now after his perfect game Thursday evening. Little, a 5-foot-5, 150-pound wide receiver, caught two shovel passes for 10 yards apiece and two touchdowns on the Warriors' first two plays from scrimmage en route to a 44-14 drubbing of School of the Future at the South Philadelphia Supersite. "I just use my speed as an advantage and never look back," he said. "I've always been the smallest person on the team and my mom always tells me never look back.

By Wayne Humphrey Pine Forge Academy, in rural Berks County, was founded 70 years ago this month. But its roots date to the 1700s, when abolitionist Quaker Thomas Rutter and his descendants - who affectionately refer to the property as "the Pine" - helped start the iron industry in Pennsylvania. They played an important role in our nation's early days, supplying munitions to George Washington's Continental Army and speaking out against slavery. Rutter's Pine Forge mansion, along the Manatawney Creek, became a stop on the Underground Railroad and aided thousands of African Americans seeking their freedom.

When High School of the Future hosts Boys' Latin at 6 p.m. Thursday at the South Philadelphia Supersite, first-year head coach Marcus Fulton and his staff hopes the Firebirds will begin their rise from relative Public League football obscurity. "This ain't your daddy's Future" is a refrain, Fulton said, espoused by assistant coach Hank Brown, and is meant to change the culture of a program with one league win in its last three seasons. During that stretch Future was 1-15 in Public League play and just 5-29 overall.

They said my mom didn't need it because she "married well. " Well, soon after my grandparents died, my dad did, too. My mom was a struggling widow.

Criminal defendants who cannot make cash bail are far more likely to be convicted than similarly situated suspects who receive pretrial release, say two new University of Pennsylvania studies. The work suggests that the inability to pay bail traps many of the accused in a cycle of criminal conduct. The studies, covering hundreds of thousands of criminal cases in Philadelphia and the Houston area, found that defendants who were unable to make bail were far more likely to plead guilty than those who had been released, after adjusting for differences in judges, defendants' circumstances and other factors.

THERE'S AN important question the Eagles are going to have to ask themselves over the next week as they begin the process of finalizing the 53-man roster they will carry into Week 1 of the season. Do we want the best 53 for this season? Or do we want the best 53 for the future? At most spots, the answer is one and the same. But when you get down to the final few spots on the roster, there should be some serious debate about present-day utility and future potential value. Given the draft picks the Eagles have traded away over the last couple of seasons - second-, third- and fourth-rounders in 2016, a first-rounder in 2017, a third-rounder in 2018 - and their underwhelming performance in a long line of drafts (including a near-total lack of return to date on the 2014 and 2015 first-rounders)
