SAN FRANCISCO - There will come a point, Ryne Sandberg said, when the Phillies manager can discuss a playing-time strategy with his boss, Ruben Amaro Jr. At least, that is what Sandberg expects. The Phillies entered Friday on pace for 71 wins; their odds at a postseason berth were calculated at 0.2 percent, according to FanGraphs.com, but not small enough to force Amaro into a conversation about the future. "Not yet," Sandberg said. He laughed. "So the challenge continues. " The manager's position is not an enviable one. He must balance expensive contracts with sensitive personalities and executives' wishes.

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.

Gov. Christie, in his first remarks about Atlantic City in the wake of news Tuesday that 3,200 more casino workers in the city would soon be out of jobs, announced Wednesday the convening of a summit next month on the resort's future. In a statement issued by his office, Christie - who was traveling in Alabama and Mississippi to boost fellow GOP governors - said there was "no doubt that Atlantic City faces real challenges as the city undergoes revitalization," while also emphasizing signs of progress in non-gaming areas, including luxury-tax receipts and retail wages.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - There is no more appropriate cross section to illustrate Antonio Bastardo's maddening fluctuation than the previous eight days. He struck out six batters in two innings on Aug. 5; pitched a scoreless inning on Friday; suffered an 11th-inning loss the next day; rebounded with a scoreless inning on Monday; and endured the ignominy of a five-run disaster on Tuesday night. Ryne Sandberg heaped praise upon Bastardo for the better part of two weeks in July, a time when the Phillies shopped their lefthanded reliever.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - For more than 6 weeks, from a month before the trade deadline until nearly 2 weeks after the deadline, Cole Hamels has had to answer questions about the possibility of playing somewhere other than Philly. On July 2, he made his stance clear. "I want to be here," Hamels said. "I'm happy to be here. " A month later, his family home in Newtown Square is up for sale and, well, people are connecting the dots. Even if the dots are on two different pages. Hamels, however, isn't looking for a new home in Philadelphia just yet. "We're building a house in Missouri," Hamels said before last night's game in Anaheim.

As the Gaza conflict drags on, Iraq has faded from the headlines, even though the country is falling to pieces. So it was intriguing to meet a terrific group of Iraqi college students at Temple University on a State Department exchange program that introduces them to religious pluralism in America. Needless to say, I wondered whether they could apply these lessons in Iraq. The impressive five-week program run by Temple's Dialogue Institute exposed the five Iraqis - along with Lebanese, Turkish, and Egyptian peers - to a dizzying variety of religions as well as the U.S. protections for religious freedom.

State Sen. Daylin Leach, sponsor of separate bills to legalize medical and recreational marijuana, took a recent trip to the appropriately named Mile High City for a crash course on weed. Yes, he inhaled. "This is not a bunch of hippies sitting around on beanbag chairs," said Leach of the burgeoning pot industry in Colorado, which became the first state to legalize recreational marijuana in January. Of his familiarity with the product, the 53-year-old Montgomery County Democrat offered the boomer defense - "hey, I went to school in the '70s" - but said he had not indulged in two decades.
