Two of the funniest and most creative fellers in New Zealand, Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement, met while they were studying theater and film at Victoria University of Wellington. Both have had interesting careers as performers and writers. Waititi is an accomplished comedian and actor. And, beginning in 1998, Clement toured with his music-and-comedy band (well, the band was really just a duo) Flight of the Conchords. HBO featured them on a comedy special in 2007 before designing a smash sitcom with them, simply titled Flight of the Conchords . In the pair's 2014 feature, the sidesplitting vampire comedy What We Do in the Shadows , they combined to create a film that truly hits comedy pay dirt.

WHEN WE are on a walk with all three of our dogs and someone stops to pet them, Harper, our 7-year-old cavalier, pushes forward to be first. When they move on to one of the other dogs, she nudges them, as if to say, "No, pet me, pet me. " Is Harper jealous or envious of the attention received by the other dogs? The answer used to be no - that jealousy is a complex emotion not experienced by dogs. Then University of California, San Diego, psychology professor Christine Harris, working with former honors student Caroline Prouvost, decided to test whether that was actually true.

A LOVE TRIANGLE for the digital age sparked a fight yesterday that led to the stabbing of a Drexel University student on the University City campus in the wee hours of the morning, police said. Cops said the 20-year-old victim was fighting with two men - later identified by police as Pu Wang, 23, and Junlin Ye, 19 - over someone among the trio sending text messages to another man's girlfriend. Investigators said they were unsure who the offending texter was last night. In any event, Lt. John Walker, of Southwest Detectives, said the fight on Race Street near 33rd about 3:30 a.m. escalated to pushes and shoves and went downhill for the victim from there: One of the aggressors pulled out a folding knife and stabbed the student in the back.

Mike Cahill's debut feature, Another Earth , showed with much grace and visual splendor that the most fantastical, grand sci-fi tropes - say, the sudden appearance of a parallel universe in our own - could be metaphors for much more intimate aspects of the human condition. Cahill, who won a Sundance special jury prize for the 2011 film, this time delivers a dose of science fact with his follow-up, I Origins , opening Friday, an arresting piece that touches on religion, evolution, reincarnation, and the nature of the human soul.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday threw out the conviction of a Lansdale woman who tried to poison a romantic rival, ruling unanimously that federal prosecutors in Philadelphia overreacted by charging her under antiterrorism law. Though her lawyers called the decision a victory, it came too late for Carol Anne Bond, 42, who served six years in federal prison after pleading guilty to chemical weapons charges in 2007. In an opinion dripping with sarcasm, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. chided prosecutors in Philadelphia for equating "an amateur attempt by a jilted wife to injure her husband's lover" with an attack prohibited under a 1997 treaty banning chemical weapons.

DEFENSE ATTORNEY A. Charles Peruto Jr. yesterday accused District Attorney Seth Williams of investigating state Rep. J.P. Miranda and charging him with a crime because they "were both dating the same girl at the same time. " A spokeswoman for Williams called that claim "ludicrous. " Peruto spoke after a preliminary hearing, in which Municipal Court Judge David Shuter held for trial three felonies filed on Jan. 27 against Miranda and his sister, Michelle Wilson. They are accused of using a "ghost employee" to funnel state payroll money to Wilson after Miranda was told he could not hire her to serve on his staff.
