What are the ramifications of an HIV-positive athlete competing in a team sport? What are the dangers to the athlete, to his teammates, to his opponents? What effect could it have in either hastening or suppressing the emergence of AIDS? Everyone has questions. Earvin "Magic" Johnson is going to help us find the answers. Magic is back. He said so yesterday during a press conference in Los Angeles. He said it's "winning time" again for the Los Angeles Lakers, the National Basketball Association team he left behind last season after learning that he had tested positive for the virus that causes AIDS, the deadly disease that infects cells of the body's immune system, impairing their function.

How can we sum up the forthcoming summer of entertainment in the casino-hotel showrooms? Easy. It's gong to be magical. The traditional flesh-and-feather shows, a staple in many of the Atlantic City show places since legalized gambling began back in 1978, are gone - at least for the moment. Even Resorts, which specialized in the big, splashy, sequined, leggy-showgirl productions since the early '80s, will be without such a show this year. It's still possible to see shapely dancers cavorting about a stage, but the chances are they'll be featured in a magic show.

CARMELO ANTHONY scored 19 points, Tyson Chandler had 12 points and 12 rebounds and the visiting New York Knicks defeated the Orlando Magic, 96-80, on Thursday night. J.R. Smith and Toney Douglas each added 15 points for the Knicks, who won for just the third time in their last 13 visits to Orlando. New York also hit 13 three-pointers. Jason Richardson scored 16 points and Glen Davis 15 to lead Orlando. The Magic's loss came on the heels of coach Stan Van Gundy's comments earlier in the day that included him saying he'd heard from top team officials that Dwight Howard has asked that he be fired.

Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia, Oct. 1, 2007 Darius stood in the Tbilisi airport arrival lounge, scanning for Iranian counter-surveillance. Though he towered above the Georgian crowd, his 6-foot-5 frame was unlikely to betray him. He shared his parents' Baltic cheekbones, spoke Russian and wore the slacks of a wealthy German. Few would suspect that Darius was an undercover agent of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. He checked the monitor again; the flight from Baku had just landed; passengers were moving through customs.

"The Amazing World of Magic," a benefit tomorrow for Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Bucks County, promises two hours of mystifying illusions and dazzling special effects with women appearing, disappearing and floating in the air and visits by ghosts, witches and goblins. The performances, scheduled for 2 and 7:30 p.m. at William Tennent High School in Warminster, star Richard and Joanne Gustafson of Horsham. The Gustafsons, who appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1967, have since performed around the world.

A year later and midnight still hasn't struck for little Doug Flutie. He is back - scrambling and passing and running and even blocking. Just ask the Jets, who were single-handedly slain Sunday night by the quarterback who was supposedly too small to play in this league. In New York, they are still talking about the epic 99-yard drive that Flutie orchestrated before the first half of a game the Bills won, 17-3. On that drive, Flutie scrambled 38 yards and made the key block on the Jets' Mo Lewis to spring Antowain Smith for a touchdown.

No Anfernee Hardaway, no Nick Anderson. That should even the playing field somewhat when the Orlando Magic visit the 76ers tonight. But maybe not nearly enough. The Magic have swept the first four games of the season series by a total of 95 points, and have taken the last two by a combined 67. Tonight's game is expected to be the season's third sellout at the CoreStates Spectrum. "This evens it up a tad, but they still have the capabilities of a lot of mismatches," Sixers coach John Lucas said.

Second baseman Daniel Grotte of Spring, Texas, said he wouldn't brush his hair until today's game was over. Taiwan's third baseman, Huang Shih Hao, refused to let water touch him, even if it meant passing up a cool dip in the pool outside his room. Superstitions aside, the two 12-year-olds showed little sign of nerves on the eve of today's 49th Little League Baseball World Series championship (Channel 6, 3:30 p.m.). Their teams will play for the world title before a crowd that could reach 40,000.

Charles Barkley says he thought about reaching out and touching Magic Johnson. Thought about calling Magic and suggesting that he not play in Sunday's NBA All-Star Game in Orlando. Thought about telling Magic that the All-Star weekend, which begins with a mass interview session Friday afternoon, could deteriorate into a media circus. Johnson, the former Los Angeles Lakers star, was named to the starting lineup of the Western Conference in fans' balloting even though he not played this season and has said he is retired.

Sometimes you pick 'em right, and sometimes you don't. This was one of my don'ts. I chose EgoPo's The Life (and Death) of Harry Houdini as one of my three PIFA recommendations in Friday's Weekend section. Although I wasn't naive enough to expect a real magic show on stage, I did expect some stage magic, and not a dramatized Wikipedia biography of the world's most famous escape artist. Created/written/directed by Brenna Geffers (who has repeatedly proved herself an excellent director and who should stick to that)

Two First Nights. Dozens of performers and shows. Thirty-six degrees. That's the numerical rundown for tonight's two family-friendly New Year's Eve celebrations, in Haddonfield and Mount Holly. This morning, event coordinators were cruising around Haddonfield posting signs and making final arrangements for the celebration. The event, now in its 15th year, is even more grand this year as the borough starts observing its 300th anniversary. Thousands are expected to attend. Fireworks at 9 p.m. with a countdown for kids will be followed by the cutting of an elaborately decorated three-layer cake reflecting Haddonfield's history, including its Native American heritage of the Indian King, and archaeological discovery of the famous Hadrosaurus.

Tucked into a corner of the Piazza at Schmidts in Northern Liberties is a room filled with wondrous and sometimes unbelievable sights. Coins disappear in the palm of your hand. A pen impales a dollar bill without leaving a hole. Think of a card, any card, and the deck seems to know exactly which one you had in mind. The illusions are courtesy of magician Seth Rovner and his store, Trick Zone, which opened in May 2009 as Philadelphia's only magic shop. Rovner, 29, a native of Lower Moreland, caters to everyone from experienced magicians who want to try out the newest tricks to children who want to try their hand at magic for the first time.

PYONGYANG, North Korea - Amid a burst of fireworks and a haze of smoke, a burly showman in a white sequined suit and gold lame cape appears with a flourish. Over the next 45 minutes, he appears to make a Pyongyang bus levitate and wriggles free from a box sent crashing to the stage through a ring of fire. This is magic North Korean-style performed in a show touted as the country's biggest ever and mounted in a city where old-fashioned illusion, a dancing bear and a dose of slapstick comedy can still command the biggest crowds of the year.
