The border between the United States and Mexico is sufficiently permeable to have produced its own distinctive hybrid culture. Glass artists Einar and Jamex de la Torre, while not of the border zone, are perfect representatives of that culture. The brothers are natives of Guadalajara who moved to Southern California as adolescents. Now they produce art that is truly bicultural in the way it thoroughly homogenizes Mexican and American source material. Their small exhibition at Snyderman Gallery indicates that they look at their native and adopted cultures skeptically.

There were many sides to Joseph Kassab - a skilled surgeon, a Wallingford community activist, an Army Reserve major and an area horticulturist, registered by the National Arboretum as the discoverer of a hybrid holly, 'Doctor Kassab.' Dr. Kassab, 82, died Wednesday at his Wallingford home, the same house where he had cared for the gardens since he was a child. "He was a very caring surgeon and loved his trees," said his wife of 38 years, Emma Elizabeth Smith Kassab. Born in the city of Chester, Dr. Kassab graduated in 1930 from Lafayette College and, in 1934, from Hahnemann Medical College.

Mayor Rendell emerged from a huddle with the board members of the Pennsylvania Convention Center Authority yesterday and said the center would be run by "a hybrid" of public employees and private companies. Rendell and City Council President John F. Street met for more than an hour in City Hall with the nine-member board and the top staff of the convention center, in a meeting closed to the public. The board then briefly convened a public meeting to award the $54 million bid on the Reading Terminal train shed to Dick Enterprises, of Pittsburgh.

'Excuse me, Miss. Excuse me!" The New York City police officer down on Ludlow Street was tapping my window with the insistence of the law. "Oh boy," I thought. "Here we go again. " I had been idling for way too long, talking on the phone in what definitely could not be considered a parking spot - could not even really be considered a loading spot, if I were honest. I rolled down the window. "Yes, officer?" I asked. "This is the best looking car I have ever seen," he told me, smiling.

It all started inauspiciously enough a decade ago when Taylor-Made introduced the Rescue club, a funny-looking sort of half fairway wood, half long iron. As the name implies, the Rescue was designed to be easy to hit and versatile, a club that recreational golfers use to get themselves out of trouble their other clubs had gotten them into. Ten years later, the Rescue - generically dubbed a "hybrid" club by the dozen or more manufacturers who have their own variations - is no longer a fad but the fastest-growing category of club in the game.

From time immemorial, if not sooner, women have wondered whether all men are pigs. Modern science has muddied the waters - can you cross a pig with a man? Is that redundant? And what do you call something that's part pig, or some other species, and part man? What would you call a guy who dated such a creature? Would the word "pig" even suffice? All these questions, and more, are explored in the zestily disturbing sci-fi/horror/monster mash-up "Splice. " It's a new-age Frankenstein about two married scientists (their names are Clive and Elsa, taken from the actors in "Frankenstein" movies)

Take away the laptops at the sound console and the camera phones, and the Mars Volta's 2 1/2-hour show of heavy rock transcendence at the Electric Factory on Sunday was an authentic, mind-expanding happening straight out of the original psychedelic ballroom in the late '60s. (The band plays a second sold-out show there tonight.) The band, expanded to seven pieces for the live performance, turned the Santana-on-steroids opener "Drunkship of Lanterns" into a half-hour opus that spewed discordant sax skronk, and its 35-minute finale, "Cassandra Gemini," made King Crimson's pioneering prog-rock absurdity "Court of the Crimson King" seem tame.

It's a cross between Waiting for Godot, Cabaret and Towering Inferno. It's "Cocktail in the Sky," a hard-to-peg but explosively funny dance-theater hybrid. This collaboration between choreographer Melanie Stewart and the Scottish-based Benchtours theater company bowed at Temple Center City's Stage III on Friday, sharing the bill with Darla Stanley's "Blood Carved. " Surprisingly, there was a coherent story here, emerging in pieces from under the strange goings-on: Five disparate characters find themselves in an elevator, bound for the highest cocktail lounge ever built.

Question: I understand that both Toyota and Honda are coming out with electric cars. When will they go on sale, and how much will they cost? Answer: They aren't true electric vehicles, for openers. They are called hybrids, which means they derive their power from both an electric motor and a small gas engine. The Honda Insight coupe is due on the U.S. market early next year. The Toyota Prius sedan will be along later as a 2001 model. (It is already on sale in Japan.) The advantage of the hybrid is that it gets much better mileage than a conventional gas-powered car - 70 m.p.g.
