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.

Money makes the wheels go round. That simple, yet complicated, message dominates the day-to-day existence of SEPTA, according to Richard G. 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.

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. – General manager Sam Hinkie is recognized as the architect for the 76ers' rebuilding plan. But manager/owner Josh Harris gave Hinkie the freedom to sacrifice wins now in order to secure a winning future. So for the second straight preseason, the billionaire businessman backed the rebuilding methods. He also talked of potential changes to the NBA lottery and supported second-year coach Brett Brown. "I think he's awesome," Harris said during his training camp state-of-the-team address at Richard Stockton College.

The big chill Monday inside the Wells Fargo Center was caused by the building's ice hockey configuration. The cold reality was provided by the return of the 76ers, the city's professional basketball franchise that wants you and its roster of NBA neophytes to believe it is building for a better tomorrow. Year Two of the Sixers' Get-Better-By-Being-Bad Plan - it's more commonly known as the Tank Initiative - officially kicked off with media day, where talk about the future could be perceived in entirely different ways.

TOO OFTEN we in the public sphere advocate firing as a punitive final measure instead of a necessary first step preceding the decisions that truly matter. On days like yesterday, when the Atlanta Braves fired general manager Frank Wren after seven seasons at the helm, our initial reaction is to compare his track record to that of the embattled general manager of our local squad. We look at the nearly identical winning percentages of the teams they constructed: .536 for Wren, .540 for Ruben Amaro Jr. We look at their recent history, at the 13-win edge Wren's squad held over Amaro's in 2012, and the 23-win edge in 2013, and the five-win edge the Braves carried into yesterday.

ATLANTIC CITY - In another part of town, the governor was behind closed doors hashing out an uncertain future for this ailing casino resort. But at this local pub overlooking a windswept bay, a trio of former Showboat cocktail servers from the graveyard shift gathered to puzzle out theirs. And it is still a puzzle, really, their sense of shock and loss like an uninvited guest they are trying to ignore. It feels uncomfortable to be cut off from an identity of three decades (yet there is physical comfort from the absence of the strain of the cocktail-server routine)

A FEW years ago, the Atlantic 10 was really struggling, apparently about to get pushed into irrelevancy in a football-dominate landscape. Then, the league became very proactive in getting new members and made a giant comeback. The league got poached after a very successful 2012-13 season, losing historic members as the college athletic carousel continued to spin wildly. All that went down last season was that America's best basketball-only conference had its greatest season if strength in numbers counts.

THE THREE-team trade that became official on Saturday, sending Thaddeus Young to the Minnesota Timberwolves and bringing the Sixers two expiring contracts and a first-round draft pick, enhanced the plan that general manager Sam Hinkie has put into place. There is no now. There is only the future. The Cleveland Cavaliers were the big winners, getting Kevin Love to pair with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. Minnesota received last year's first overall pick, Anthony Bennett, along with this year's top selection, Andrew Wiggins.

THREE WEEKS after Rais M'Bolhi was brought in to be the Union's goalkeeper of the future, we still await the Major League Soccer debut of the two-time World Cup participant. That day could still be several weeks away, meaning Zac MacMath is likely to garner a few more starts in goal over the final 10 games of this regular season. The Union (6-6-9) prepared this week as if MacMath would start Sunday's 8 p.m. home game against Chris Wondolowski and the San Jose Earthquakes (6-9-7).
