LAS VEGAS - The tech celebration that distracted some in this city last week from gambling and cavorting is best known as the Consumer Electronics Show. But for the energetic entrepreneurs who push inventions and start-ups here every January - more this year than ever - CES might as well be called the Field of Dreams. Their hope is that if they build it, customers will come, and with them some measure of success - whether they seek fortune, fame, or the satisfaction of improving other people's lives along with their own. This year's crop of inventions is heavily seeded with powerful and inexpensive sensors that can turn just about anything into connected, gee-whiz technology.

Omar Sharif Cash spent nearly two hours Wednesday trying to explain to a Philadelphia jury why he had to kill Muliek Ronald Brown. It took jurors all of 35 minutes Thursday to decide they didn't believe him, finding Cash guilty of first-degree murder in the 2008 slaying outside a Frankford car wash. On Tuesday, the same jury will begin hearing evidence to decide whether Cash should be sentenced to death or life in prison without chance of parole.

INSIDE Episcopal Academy's Dixon Athletic Center, which sits on the school's sprawling Newtown Square campus, a shrewd Evan Butts sat in head football coach Todd Fairlie's office trying to skillfully answer a simple question. Last week, Butts caught a 19-yard touchdown pass with just 31 seconds left that pulled Episcopal within 48-47 of Lawrenceville. The 6-4, 225-pound tight end was asked whether the play was drawn up specifically for him. "No, it wasn't really designed . . . " he started to say. "Yes, it was," interrupted Episcopal offensive coordinator David Gueriera, who looked up from his laptop and added emphatically, "if there was single coverage on him we were going to him. " A sly smile slithered across Butts' face.
