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.

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.

March 1997. A South Jersey Group 1 basketball game was scheduled for 7 p.m. at Pitman, and Ron Myers - along with some of his teammates - arrived at the little school on Linden Avenue about 4:30 p.m. "There was a line around the building," Myers said, recalling a magical time in his life and in the history of Pitman basketball. "You drove up with your buddies and you see that and you're like, 'Wow. This is a big deal.' " Myers was standing in a hallway off a locker room below the Cherry Hill East gymnasium Saturday afternoon.

COLUMBUS - The NHL's trade deadline is 17 days away, Ron Hextall's last chance to shake up a stagnant Flyers roster until the summer. Right now, we know as much about Hextall's long-range plan for the Flyers as we did on May 7, 2014, the day he was promoted to general manager. That is to say: not much. "Nothing has really changed," Hextall said yesterday in a conference call with reporters. "If the right deal comes along for now and for the future, we'll make it. If it doesn't, obviously we won't.

The Revel curse struck again Tuesday, as the bankrupt Atlantic City casino hotel terminated its $95.4 million deal with Florida investor Glenn Straub. If U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Gloria M. Burns approves the move - which also means that Revel would keep Straub's $10 million deposit - it will be the second time a bankruptcy sale of the $2.4 billion Revel evaporated in acrimony. Burns set a Wednesday hearing. Brookfield Asset Management Inc., of Toronto, walked away in November from its deal to buy Revel for $110 million, abandoning its $11 million deposit.

Truebright Science Academy Charter School is ramping up its fight to stay open past June. The Olney school filed a petition in Commonwealth Court on Monday, challenging the Philadelphia School Reform Commission's 2013 decision not to renew its charter on several grounds, including poor academic performance.

NEW ORLEANS - The halfway point of the season recently passed and many are already looking toward the year (or years) ahead for the 76ers. Joel Embiid has been more visible of late, having long shooting sessions before games, showing a fluid touch from as far as 18 feet out and sometimes beyond. So many are wondering: If he and Nerlens Noel are paired in the frontcourt together next season, who plays where? And what if the team lands the first overall pick and decides to take Duke's Jahlil Okafor, the 6-11, 270-pounder who appears to be the slam-dunk top pick?

ON JAN. 16, as I was riding down Market Street, I witnessed a boy lying in the street with a bike close to his body. I thought he was maybe riding the bike and had just been hit by a car. I was just speculating about what happened because I didn't see a car anywhere in sight. SEPTA and Philadelphia police were just then arriving at the scene. He appeared to not be breathing. I could see them performing CPR on him. The incident started to draw a crowd, and I said a prayer and continued on my journey.
