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.

THE REC LEAGUE basketball season hasn't started yet in Monkton, Md., so neighbors A.J. Burnett and Scott Proefrock haven't worked on the coaching sidelines together since the Phillies season ended a month ago. Proefrock, the assistant general manager, hasn't even seen Burnett, the veteran pitcher, in October. "I've been up here [Philadelphia] and in Florida," said Proefrock, who coached with Burnett on their sons' basketball team last winter. "I know he went away for his wife's birthday last weekend.

WHEN SULTAN JOHNS was younger, he wanted to play football so badly that he consistently peppered his mother with requests. However, Denise Johns wouldn't hear of it. Johns, now a 5-7, 165-pound senior running back for Olney Charter wasn't very big growing up, so his mother was worried about serious injuries, he said. Repeatedly rebuffed, the Logan resident remained resolute, not knowing that one day he would become a 1,000-yard rusher. "I just kept asking her and kept asking her and kept asking her," Johns said yesterday after host Olney thumped High School of the Future, 39-14.

The planned merger of Abington Health and Jefferson Health comes amid a surge in hospital consolidation that is likely to grow. The University of Pennsylvania Health System and Lancaster General Health said this week they were in talks for a deal, and last week, the Crozer-Keystone Health System put itself up for sale. The Jefferson-Abington merger could prompt even more deals in the area, experts said. "It could catalyze other hospitals that might be threatened by this announcement and feel more pressure to either join them or to do something else," Daniel M. Grauman, president and chief executive of DGA Partners, a consulting firm in Bala Cynwyd, said Thursday.

WHEN YOU REALLY break it down the two big story lines this year when it comes the 76ers aren't hard to find. One is the starting point guard who garnered rookie of the year honors last season and the other centers around the wonderfully athletic big man obtained in a surprising draft-night trade only to sit out his first season recovering from a knee injury. Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel are this year's 76ers. Sure there are peripheral pieces that will develop some interest during the 82-game season, which begins tomorrow night in Indianapolis, but if you are to believe in the plan that general manager Sam Hinkie has laid out, these two are the keys.

NEW YORK - Last October, at the conference's annual media day, everything about the Big East was new so there was much nostalgia for what was. Yesterday at Madison Square Garden, it was no longer relevant to look back. It was about what is and what will be. "I think getting the first year of the Big East over with was the greatest thing we did," Villanova coach Jay Wright said. "It was the first year of not having the traditional Big East that all of us were used to . . . Now, we're settled in so let's talk about what the Big East is. I think it's a great conference that could every year put five or six teams in the NCAA Tournament.

Since the Union were eliminated from Major League Soccer playoff contention two weeks ago, interim manager Jim Curtin has spent even more time listening to the conversations in his locker room. He has taken a harder look at the way his players train. "It matters to me: Who are the guys that are kind of tuned out and thinking about offseason vacations?" Curtin said. "It's a full-time job. There are no breaks. " Curtin's reasons for close evaluation are about more than just bringing the season to a prideful end at Columbus on Sunday.

YEARS FROM NOW, however long it takes, chances are you might become familiar with the name John Reid. The 5-10, 190-pound senior for St. Joseph's Prep is a nationally touted cornerback headed to Penn State next year. And, once his days as a Nittany Lion are complete, it's possible you could see him in a secondary on Sundays, or, you could simply be watching NFL football on a device the self-taught computer creator developed on his own. Indeed, for the last 2 or 3 years, Reid says, he, his father and an uncle have been building a computer - from scratch.

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. – General manager Sam Hinkie is recognized as the architect for the 76ers' rebuilding plan.
