Phil Collins has dominated Genesis the last five years, so it's no surprise that Mike Rutherford has his own group on the side to get a bigger share of the limelight. Yet Mike + the Mechanics, who appeared at the Tower Theater on Saturday night, still strongly shows the Genesis influence. With little between-song chatter, and only a minimum of freewheeling guitar solos, the six-piece band played a tight 16-song set, mixing selections culled from the group's two albums, 1985's Mike + the Mechanics and the current The Living Years.

Was it a rock concert, the high-tech equivalent of a drive-in, or a display of a stadium-sized home entertainment system on steroids? At Veterans Stadium last night, the English band Genesis unveiled a stunning multi-media spectacle - a two-hour-and-twenty-minute show meant to satisfy the eyes as much as the ears. Three immense television screens - Sony Jumbotrons that measured 21-by-42 feet each - dwarfed the five musicians on stage. Computer-generated animation, graphics and live images of the band were rendered on the screen with exceptionally crisp and clear resolution.

He'd already left his wife, moved to another country and hooked up with some 23-year-old babe. There was only one cliche missing from Phil Collins' mid-life crisis, and here it is: Yesterday, he quit his job. After 25 years as drummer and singer for the artsy-turned-easy-listenin' band Genesis, Collins is giving it up, he announced yesterday. The 45-year-old musician, who now lives in Switzerland with his new girlfriend, will work on movie scores, "some jazz projects and of course my solo career," Collins said.

In the beginning, which in this case goes back to 1969's From Genesis to Revelation, there was a cult band. Now, 15 albums later, and just nine months after playing four sold-out nights at the Spectrum, Genesis is back in Philadelphia tonight and tomorrow for sold-out outdoor shows before more than 50,000 fans at Veterans Stadium. And the cult of Genesis includes nearly everybody. "This is the biggest-grossing tour we've been tracking," says Gary Bongiovanni of the trade magazine Pollstar.

At one point this summer, tracks by Genesis, Phil Collins and Mike (Rutherford) and the Mechanics were lined up 1-2-3 on the singles chart. And you could hardly listen to the radio for 15 minutes without hearing either the core group or one of these Genesis spinoff projects coming atcha. On top of that Genesis super-saturated promotion and newfound following, let's not forget the sizable crop of Philadelphia fans who go way back, who were in Genesis' corner when the rest of the country couldn't be bothered.

Al Belch leaned against his wine-colored stretch limousine on Broad Street last night, eyeing his watch while the Flyers battled the Edmonton Oilers inside the Spectrum. Who were Belch's clients, wealthy VIPs here for the big game? Guess again. "Four kids, none of 'em over 21, here for the concert," Belch said, pointing toward Veterans Stadium, where Phil Collins and Genesis were rocking away. Belch was one of scores of limo drivers cashing in on the latest trend among young adults and teens: Riding to the rock show in a limousine.

Hugh White of Haddonfield labors in the field of religion - not as a preacher, but as a teacher. White, professor of religion at Rutgers University in Camden, is the author of Narration and Discourse in the Book of Genesis, which explores the first book of the Bible as literature. The book is published by Cambridge University Press. White, a native of Columbia, Ga., earned a bachelor's degree in psychology at Asbury College in Wilmore, Ky. "In those days, I was planning to study theology, to become a minister," said White, 56. After college, he taught religion while completing a bachelor's degree in divinity at Emory University in Atlanta.

Genesis, which began a four-night stand at the Spectrum last night, is in the enviable position of being all things to all people. This band made its fame in the 1970s for its lengthy, meticulously arranged, quasi-classical pop compositions that defined the genre that came to be called art-rock. But individual members of Genesis - particularly drummer-vocalist Phil Collins - have scored mainstream pop hits as solo performers. Thus Genesis, having recently commenced a 10-month world tour, manages the nearly impossible feat of being both popular and recondite at the same time.

Before the end of her junior year, said Cara Davis, she had convinced herself she would never graduate from Upper Merion High School. Feeling excluded by social cliques, Davis, 17, said she often skipped school or arrived at noon when she bothered to come at all. She felt alone, she said - until she enrolled in the Upper Merion alternative school called Genesis. "In Genesis, I got help from counselors who convinced me to do my work. If not for them, I know I would have dropped out," Davis said.

Genesis Healthcare Inc., a major nursing home and rehabilitation company based in Kennett Square, said it opened a post-hospital rehabiliation facility in China, its first venture outside the United States. "With 14.8 percent of the Chinese population over the age of 60 and 70 million people in need of rehabilitation services, there is significant market potential in China," George V. Hager Jr., Genesis's chief executive, said. The new Genesis facility, called a "Vitality Center," is in Zengcheng, which is in southern China, near Guangzhou.

Shares in Genesis Healthcare Inc. fell 4 percent Monday, adding to an 18 percent drop Friday - the result of a significant fourth-quarter profit shortfall for the Kennett Square nursing-home operator. Genesis, which this month began trading on the New York Stock Exchange after seven years under private ownership, last week reported fourth-quarter profit of $125.7 million, excluding interest, taxes, rent, and certain accounting charges. That was more than $30 million below the $157 million to $160 million Genesis told investors and analysts to expect in a November presentation.

Genesis HealthCare Corp.'s proposed merger with Skilled Healthcare Group Inc., if completed as expected early next year, will mark the Kennett Square firm's return to the ranks of publicly traded companies after a seven-year absence. Genesis, which traces its roots to a company that was founded in that Chester County town in 1985 and had a meteoric acquisition-fueled rise in the 1990s until heavy debt and government-payment cuts forced it into bankruptcy in 2000, was taken private in 2007 for $1.9 billion.

Once again, we are reminded that the Korean automaker Hyundai, like its corporate sibling, Kia, is a pretty quick study. A case in point is the redesigned 2015 Genesis, the second coming of its luxury sedan. The first-generation Genesis, which debuted in 2009, offered a lot of features for the buck, and pretty much went downhill from there. The styling lurked somewhere between bland and generic, and the ride and handling were even more forgettable. Enter the renaissance redesign for 2015, an automotive quantum leap.

Nurid-Din, 31, earned her degree in elementary and special education from Cheyney University, then a master's from Cabrini College.

As a designer and builder, William G. Burris Jr. clearly relishes details. Demonstrating a recliner at a $30 million rehabilitation center under construction by his company in Voorhees, Burris explained the importance of the chair's control. "Two positions. Back-up. Down-up. It doesn't take too much to figure out what to do here," he said. By contrast, a popular recliner brand has eight buttons on the control and is "very confusing" for patients, said Burris, whose small Burris Construction Co. Inc. in Moorestown specializes in nursing homes and related health-care facilities.

The genesis of Ingrid Croce's candid and engrossing new book about her late husband, I Got a Name: The Jim Croce Story, goes back to 1988. That was 15 years after the Philadelphia native and singer of such hits as "Bad Bad Leroy Brown," "Operator" - and "I Got a Name" - died in a plane crash. "I didn't want to do this book unless I could do it right," the 65-year-old restaurateur, herself a native Philadelphian, says from her home in San Diego. "I thought about it over the many years I was in litigation" over the crash and record royalties, "and then when I got out of litigation and when I opened Croce's Restaurant as a tribute to Jim. " Croce and her coauthor, Jimmy Rock - then her fiance, now her husband - began doing extensive research for the book.
