LET'S BE HONEST, had these been the circumstances surrounding last night's men's NCAA championship, we would have touted it as the greatest college basketball matchup ever. The significance of the tonight's women's NCAA final is beyond comparison. This isn't just No. 1 Connecticut against No. 2 Notre Dame; it is two undefeated teams with a combined record of 76-0. The story lines are numerous, none bigger than the hostile relationship between UConn head coach Geno Auriemma and Notre Dame's Muffet McGraw.

Ten-year-old Allan is passionate about aircraft, so it's no surprise that his dream is to become a pilot and travel the world when he grows up. A favorite pastime is making airplanes out of paper, or almost any other material on hand. When he talks about planes, his face lights up with a beautiful smile, as it did on a recent visit to the Franklin Institute. He not only learned more about being a pilot, but he also boarded a flight simulator. A fourth grader, Allan enjoys school and works hard in his special-education classroom.

Boyd, a member of the City All-Stars, plans to attend Temple next fall and would like to try out for the team, if possible, but his focus is elsewhere. "What really matters to me, and what's going to get me further in life, is my education," Boyd said.

So just what is The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller ? Even director Sam Green, the creative force behind the evening of entertainment that has sold out two shows at FringeArts on Friday, isn't quite sure what to call it. "I use different terms," the filmmaker said. "At a film festival, I'll call it a 'live documentary.' At a museum, it's a 'performance.' And I've also done shows at libraries. There, I'll just call it a 'fancy lecture.' Which it is. It's a lecture with a band.

Hello there They met at a now-defunct bar during Philadelphia's May 2012 Outfest. Cara couldn't believe how loud Val was. Why did she have to be the center of attention? "I thought she was a jerk. " Val chalked up Cara's quietness to a holier-than-thou attitude. "I thought she was stuck-up and pretentious. " Then that August, the same mutual friend that introduced them - Holly - invited a bunch of people to PBR Bar & Grill at Xfinity Live, where another friend's band was performing.
