Javier Crespo does not look like a basketball player who would prefer the uptempo game. At 6-8 and a muscular 230 pounds, Crespo, a senior forward at Cardinal O'Hara High, looks like someone who would settle for standing beneath the basket all game long and doling out physical punishment. Looks can be deceiving. "I like to play fast. I love it," Crespo said, flashing a huge grin. "That is how I play back home. That is what I am comfortable with. " Back home for Crespo is Madrid, Spain, where his parents own a restaurant and a disco.

Writing music for an original piece called Transformations, composer Greg Pliska hit a snag. Pliska and his fellow writers agreed on the words for the first stanza, but the second verse was just too long. One composer, Jamie Close, had an idea. "In the line, 'Bullfrogs, crayfish, newts, frogs, fish and flies / Slugs, snakes, turtles, tadpoles and everything under the skies,' take out frogs and turtles," he said excitedly. "Now move 'fish and flies' to the end of the first line, and it'll rhyme with skies.

What chef Kin Jing Mark can do with a ball of dough the size of a softball looks very much like magic. He rolls it out on a floured table until it forms a long rope, then tosses it in the air again and again. The result is not a pizza. Within two minutes, the rope has separated into more than 2,000 noodles, each with the fineness of a human hair. "Just by hand. No knife, nothing," said the Hong Kong native, one of only a few chefs in the U.S. to have mastered this singular skill.

I met Tazhe Cooper in 2009, when he was the Philadelphia School District's senior of the year, about to graduate from Furness High. He was awarded one of the district's "Grow Your Own" scholarships, given to graduating seniors who plan to pursue education careers and who pledged to make a three-year commitment to Philadelphia schools once they qualified as teachers. He had been interested in a career in education since he was young; it seemed like a great fit. Cooper e-mailed me recently to say he'd been watching the district closely and had changed his mind about wanting to work there.

EDYTHE MAA knows pain. She knows the pain of wearing latex on a hot day, the pain of having her nipples clamped and the pain of tight corsets. Maa, a dominatrix-turned-fetish model who uses the name Jade Vixen, also knows the pain that death brings. Three years ago, her boyfriend - a Manhattan-based attorney with an S&M fetish - was shot to death in North Philly by one of her obsessed fans, who then kidnapped her and killed himself. Maa, a one-time Ph.D. candidate at the University of Pennsylvania, reportedly gave up being a professional dominatrix after that trauma, but trouble managed to find another man close to her anyway.

Two suburban auction houses known for the high prices that their goods command will have big-volume sales next week with generally affordable merchandise. Both will also feature East Asian artwork. And each will offer a bizarre circus sideshow banner from the mid-20th century - one of a series of coincidences in next week's auction scene. While the banners are virtually the same size, about 7 by 10 feet, the more outrageous of the two will be featured by Pook & Pook Inc. at its two-day, 1,300-lot sale of decorative arts in Downingtown: a depiction of the Great LaCardo, a sword swallower, ingesting a neon tube.

LETTER-writer Robert Bryan of Bensalem said we shouldn't bash Jennifer Mitrick, the prosecutor who dated a gun-toting drug dealer, because she was so good with his children in a case. Mr. Bryan should take a ride down Kensington Avenue and see people's children so strung out on drugs that they'll sell themselves. And maybe he should look at all the murders in this town done by drug dealers, and then tell me he thinks Mitrick is just fine. She is supposed to uphold the law, but may have affected the outcome in one trial already.
