ARIES (March 21-April 19) Your intensity sometimes can be problematic in that others feel delightfully overwhelmed. You will find that wherever your attention goes, it will be well received. Focus on one person, make plans. You can do this each night and day until you find your nirvana (though quick passing), which is more than likely this weekend. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Others seem to nearly run you over trying to get your attention. It is a good thing that you are a sturdy bull and have a very keen eye for the best mate for you. Though you might be putting a lot of numbers in your cell, you will stop when you spot this special person.

By W. Wilson Goode Sr. The Maasai tribe in Kenya is known around the world because its members are mighty warriors. They are fierce fighters, and they are protectors of the women and children in the villages. I speak of them not because they are mighty warriors, but because of the way they greet one another. They don't do it the way we do it. We say, "Good morning," "Good afternoon," or "Good evening. " They greet others with a question: "How are the children?" Well, how are the children?

Honda HR-V vs. Mazda CX-3 vs. Kia Soul vs. Buick Encore: Small crossover four-way. This week: 2016 Honda HR-V AWD EX-L Navi Price: $26,720 as tested. No options. A base front-wheel-drive model starts at $19,115. Marketer's pitch: "One HR-V fits all. " Conventional wisdom: Edmunds.com likes the "roomy interior and seating; versatile cargo loading thanks to unique rear seat; high fuel economy; excellent outward visibility," but not the "underwhelming acceleration; touchscreen interface can be frustrating to use and lacks full Android integration.

NEW YORK - Great success brings great expectations. Villanova is now getting all of that in October and March. The last two Octobers have been right on. The last two Marches have been way off. The Wildcats were once again the unanimous pick to win the Big East by the coaches. They were 33-3 last season. This team has two returning starters (Ryan Arcidiacono and Daniel Ochefu), Josh Hart, the conference sixth man of the year who doubled as the tournament's Most Outstanding Player, Jaylen Brunson, the preseason rookie of the year and enough talent to go eight deep.

TAMPA, Fla. - Braydon Coburn got his turn last night to stand and gaze toward the rafters of Amalie Arena as a black curtain was lifted and a banner was revealed. A little less than 24 hours earlier, his friend and former teammate, Kimmo Timonen, who is now retired, was at United Center in Chicago as the same thing happened. For Coburn and the Tampa Bay Lightning, the banner read "Eastern Conference Champions," a feat Lightning coach Jon Cooper said was much more of an accomplishment than a disappointment.

AS EAGLES fans count down the months, weeks and now days until the Aug. 2 start of training camp, they are eager to know exactly what to make of Chip Kelly's turbulent, transformative offseason. No one has sensed this eagerness more acutely than your intrepid beat writer, who almost daily has fielded questions - walking into the dry cleaner, buying mulch at the hardware store or sitting on the exam table at the doctor's office.

It cannot be a simple task, adapting Charles Dickens' Great Expectations for the stage, but playwright Gale Childs Daly gave it a go. A few nips and tucks later, the Arden Theatre Company's new production brings bright, young Pip, dismal Miss Havisham, and her ice-cold adopted daughter Estella (along with more than 30 others) to life with a six-person cast and minimal props. However, those reasonable cuts - even Dickens purists might not miss the excised personages and events - don't result in an entirely taut show.

Targa Resources Corp. is buying two oil-and-gas pipeline companies controlled by Philadelphia's Cohen family for $5.9 billion, creating a substantial energy transportation and storage firm. Targa announced Monday that it had agreed to buy Atlas Pipeline Partners L.P. and the "midstream" assets of Atlas Energy L.P. for a combination of cash and partnership units. With the acquisition, Targa, owner of a Gulf Coast plant to export natural-gas liquids including propane and ethane, would expand its operations in the Permian Basin oil field and gain footholds in shale regions in Texas and Oklahoma, where Atlas has a strong presence.
