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 SIXERS are a few Miami Heat losses, a few not-so-friendly Los Angeles Laker ping pong balls and an Oklahoma City Thunder winning streak away grabbing four of the first 19 picks in the 2015 NBA draft. Of course, with some twists of fate, they could just end up with their own pick, which could drop as low as sixth as the NBA standings currently dictate. (Three top spots can be displaced.) Either way, the Sixers are going to be looking at the NCAA Tournament not just to see how they do in their collective pools but also to see how some of the talent they've had their eyes on the past few months perform.

Carol Harrison walks into her mother's nursing-home room, raises the blinds, lets in the morning light. "Hey, Mom, hey, good morning. " The daughter's voice is tender, as if waking a child. She kisses her mother's cheek. Strokes her hair. "Mom, hey, it's Carol Ann. It's Carol Ann. I'm here to see you. " No response. Grace Ward, 90, is under a blanket, in a recliner, eyes closed. She has had Alzheimer's disease for 15 years. For the last five, she hasn't uttered a coherent sentence, or recognized her daughter.

BOSTON - The 76ers expect their future to include a towering frontcourt of Nerlens Noel and Joel Embiid. Thomas Robinson, however, could fit in as a nice backup. "When you just talk about his skill package, he's got tenacity," Sixers coach Brett Brown said of Robinson. "If he does anything, he plays hard. . . . His gift is he is highly, highly competitive. And there is a bull mentality in him. " Those are the qualities the Sixers find endearing and want in their franchise moving forward.

PRINCETON - The battle was hanging in the balance that January day in 1777 when Gen. George Washington boldly rode between the American and British lines to rally his soldiers. "Instantly, there was a roar of musketry followed by a shout," wrote an American colonel who was there. "It was the shout of victory. " Washington emerged from the smoke waving his hat and urging his soldiers on in pursuit of retreating Redcoats. Two hundred and thirty-eight years later, another counterattack is underway - focused on the same land where some historians say combat was fierce.

SEASONS CHANGE, the conversation does too, but the topic remains constant. Winter, spring, summer and into early fall, three of our four major professional sports franchises have positioned and decisioned themselves into hard-choice narratives about what to do next, and how to do it. That's the common thread: a gap between where they have put themselves and where they want to go. As anyone who follows professional sports in this town can attest, the...

IN AN EARLIER column, I said 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie was either a mad genius or just mad. After the deals he made at the NBA trade deadline, I am now convinced he's not only mad, he's completely insane. The result of trading Michael Carter-Williams and K.J. McDaniels is that our remaining lineup is surely the worst in the NBA, and our two most interesting players to watch are gone. As a result, the Sixers could have four picks in the first round and five picks in the second round of this year's draft, plus Nerlens Noel and Joel Embiid will most likely both be healthy next season.

SO, DID you hear the big news? Ben Davis has been added to the Phillies' broadcasting booth. Oh, and the other big news? The Eagles cut James Casey. OK, OK. Here's the part that struck me the most about Sam Hinkie's trade yesterday of Michael Carter-Williams for yet even more draft picks: His boss isn't flinching. And Josh Harris is willing to take all the public-relations hits that his general manager can dish out with one after another unpopular, eyes-to-the-future deal.
