I've learned many lessons about the difficulties, possibilities, and importance of communication between the races in the United States after living in Philadelphia's racially integrated Mount Airy neighborhood for 10 years and leading its community organization for three years. Living next door to people of another race doesn't, necessarily, make for social interaction. Given our increasingly private lives, even living next door to someone of the same race doesn't ensure it. But interaction is easier in Mount Airy.

Whether schools should visit retailers for class trips ("Brand-name field trips: A total sellout," editorial, May 27) has brought about much debate. Some would say that the businesses have purely selfish financial motives in inviting the young visitors. I think this is a misconception. As a former trainer of a major home-center retailer, I had the privilege of facilitating many school trips. The trips were an opportunity for the store's employees to interact and give something back to the community, pure and simple.

Toward the end of lunch, Phoenix Ferragame, 17 months old, raised both hands in front of his chest and tapped his fingertips together. His mother smiled. "You want more ? More chips?" Gina Ferragame asked, mimicking the hand movement and then passing the bowl to her son. For parents, hardly anything is as satisfying as being able to communicate with their children. But speech requires development of three muscle groups. Toddlers typically have motor control of their hands and fingers months sooner.

HERE'S HOPING an NHL goaltender's innocent interaction with a fan does not get blown out of proportion by the politically correct police. Or, at the very least, let's hope it was an innocent interaction. An unnamed Canadiens fan, yapping to the visiting Blackhawks during Tuesday's game, reportedly made a $5 bet with reserve goaltender Marty Turco that the Blackhawks wouldn't score after Montreal went up, 1-0. When Patrick Kane lit the lamp for Chicago a few minutes later, the fan had to pay up. "I slipped it through the glass.

It might have been a nonstop night of hits. "Sir Duke. " "Superstition. " "I Just Called to Say I Love You. " "Part Time Lover. " Certainly Stevie Wonder, whose consistent talent as a tunesmith has recently been eclipsed in the public eye by Prince and others, could have coasted with a perfunctory, loving-look-back trip through his catalogue Saturday at the outdoor grandstand of Bally's Grand Hotel Casino. A greatest-hits revue would have suited the capacity crowd of 4,000, who braved rain-soaked bleacher seats and a blustering ocean breeze - and then had to wait nearly 40 minutes for the concert to begin.

In the 11th and 12th centuries, Christians, Jews and Muslims gathered in the medieval castles of Spain to hear songs and stories of saints, martyrs and citizens. On Saturday night, the medieval ensemble Altramar hopes to capture that feeling of unity by bringing music from the Spanish Golden Age to the Trinity Episcopal Church in Swarthmore. "There was a lot of cultural interaction taking place between the years 1000 and about 1220," said Chris Smith of the Bloomington, Ind., ensemble.

In the opening few minutes of "The Social Network," all you see are two college kids yakking, and it's the most enthralling movie sequence of the year. On the surface, it's a testy conversation between a dweeby Harvard undergrad and the college girlfriend who's about to dump him. The two squabble and apologize, parry and thrust, attack and withdraw. The combatants often stop mid-argument to parse the precise meaning of the words in play - they want to gauge the sincerity, the intent, the possible permutations of the remarks they make.

The man who developed the Great Valley Corporate Center says that if people want to talk about contributions to suburban sprawl, they should look at "the government's wishes. " "The Great Valley Corporate Center was zoned for that use," said Willard Rouse 3d, chairman of Liberty Property Trust. "We implemented the government's wishes. "There is this hypothesis that the development community has created sprawl, but 80 [percent] or 85 percent has occurred under the zoning the townships have placed on the land.

By Taylor Hosking There appears to be at least one area of agreement between activists and some law enforcement leaders: community policing, where building relationships and regular positive interactions with the community are central to police work. Every day, behind gymnasium doors in Philadelphia, there are sanctuaries of trust between children and officers that quietly defy the us-vs.-them narrative. In Kensington, a refreshing wave of familiar sounds - basketballs on linoleum and kids yelling - breaks through the doorway of the Police Athletic League Lighthouse Community Center.

This year, InterAct Theatre Company moved into the Drake, a towering Art Deco-Spanish baroque apartment building in Center City. It is an enormous upgrade, in more ways than one, from its former low-slung quarters at the Adrienne Theater on Sansom Street, which lacked heat in the lobby and a few other notable amenities (like comfy seats). It seems to be a hit: InterAct estimates that 11,000 people have come through its new space since it opened at the beginning of the year. The 30-story skyscraper's old ballroom was transformed into two stages, which, along with the offices and gender-neutral bathrooms, cover 8,500 square feet combined.

Joseph is a lovable 7-year-old who enjoys being cuddled, spoken to, sung to, and held. He responds well to musical toys and contrasting colors. Joseph benefits from being with other children. He does not get upset easily, but when he does, he can quickly be calmed or redirected. Joseph is slowly learning to speak. Nonambulatory, Joseph requires the assistance of his wheelchair, leg braces, hand splints, and body jacket to help him maintain his posture and standing abilities. Although his main source of nutrition is through a tube, he does receive some oral feeding, as well.

I suppose it's inevitable a play called Straight White Men will be controversial, and I also suppose that's exactly what InterAct Theatre Company wants. They have never shied away from difficult topics (their last production, Jennifer Haley's The Nether , visited a world of MMORPG pedophiliac future-sex), and playwright Young Jean Lee is an identity provocateur of the first order. The irony here is Straight White Men is probably Lee's least provocative work, a naturalistic living-room drama about a widowed father and his three struggling sons.

The sounds of wood slamming against wood, of wheels sliding over a ramp, and of sudden crash landings echoed around the white walls of Drexel University's Pearlstein Gallery on Tuesday. Yet no one seemed alarmed. "They're shredding in there," said Ed Solego, a former pro-skateboarder-turned-skate-shop-owner-and-videographer. For the next eight weeks, the space will be transformed from a traditional art gallery into an interactive, pop-up skate park called Philly Radness, set against a projected backdrop that fluctuates in response to the skaters' movements and to the noises they make as they roll and clatter around the space.

Massacres erupt from San Diego to Paris. Archaeologists recently announced the discovery in Kenya of human remains from a prehistoric tribe that met a brutal end about 10,000 years ago. And then there's Syria and Ukraine. Is deadly violence simply basic to human DNA? Are we all just sharks on land? So it would seem, judging from the undermotivated widespread carnage in the enterprising, entertaining - but not quite fully thought-out - Kristoffer Diaz play #therevolution , presented by InterAct Theatre, in which two giggly lesbian millennials have murdered enough people that they now rule the world.

This is the season to dress up and be somebody, at such pop-up Halloween haunted houses as "Terror Behind the Walls" at Fairmount's Eastern State Penitentiary and such "room escape" adventures as "Trapped in a Room with a Zombie" in East Falls. Now there's a kinder, gentler, and new option that opened last month on South Philadelphia's East Passyunk Avenue commercial strip. A clock-ticking, cooperative play challenge that lets you dress like Ferris Bueller, Rocky Balboa, or the gang from Sixteen Candles.

AT FIRST, the commotion in front of the old police district's front walls attracted some stares. Then drivers pulled over and started taking pictures with their phones. Some marched up to police officers who were standing around and peppered them with questions. And then the damnedest thing happened: People started smiling. Laughing. Might even have done a little clapping, too. Velvet ropes, a red carpet and balloons hugged the entrance to Olney's 35th District headquarters — in honor of a movie night for dozens of excited local kids.

Local arts watchers had to wonder why InterAct Theatre's hands-on boss, producing artistic director Seth Rozin, wasn't directing, or including any of his own plays, in much of his company's 2014-15 season. Few realized that by April, Rozin would be announcing not only that InterAct was leaving its longtime home at the Adrienne Theater but also that it was leading four other theater organizations into a new space in the old Drake Hotel ballroom in September. "Truthfully, when we selected this season, we didn't exactly know we'd be spending the year in lease negotiations, design meetings, and fund-raising mode for a new home," Rozin said April 1, the day he announced the Drake deal.
