MARK CUBAN is still trying to get over losing DeAndre Jordan to the Clippers. Last month, the Mavericks owner publicly announced that the 6-11 free-agent center had agreed - verbally - to sign with Dallas. But then Jordan changed his mind and re-signed with the Clippers. The incident embarrassed Cuban who, in addition to not getting Jordan, was hit with a $25,000 fine from the NBA for commenting on the deal before the signing deadline. Yesterday, Cuban discussed the matter with ESPN radio's Colin Cowherd.

MIAMI - The 76ers have to reclaim their identity. Before the trade deadline, they were a solid defensive squad that gave teams fits regardless of the outcome. These days, the Sixers are a three-point-taking and seldom-defensive-stop-making squad. Their latest example was Monday's 119-108 loss to the Miami Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena. "That's not who we are," coach Brett Brown said. "That's not even close to who we are. You have a luxury of shooters coming in and the punishment of having to regroup and reclaim identity, which has been defense.

Hollywood glam often is dramatic: pouty red lips, luscious lashes and rosy cheeks. But in keeping with this season's red-carpet beauty trends, I predict that tonight's Academy Award-goers will display dewier, barely made-up faces. The trendlet The fresh-faced makeup look follows the dear old adage: Less is more. But let's be clear here: This is not a No Makeup Monday moment, when you post a selfie after washing your face. Cosmetics are used, just not heavily. Foundation is optional and skin should have a dewy shine.

Now, the third grader at Wedgwood Elementary School in Sewell, Gloucester County, loves her regular visits. "It's relaxing," said the 8-year-old, "and when they put the lotion on my legs, it tickles and I like that. " Zoey is part of a growing trend of young girls - toddlers to tweens - indulging in professional facials, manicures, pedicures, hair styling, makeup, even massages.

IT ALL STARTED with the smoky eye. I didn't know how to create the look and I wanted to, so badly, that I watched countless how-to videos on YouTube until I got it right. That year, I used all my holiday gift money to buy a new collection of makeup. My love affair with beauty products had begun. I'm a graphic designer by profession, with degrees in that and in fine arts. I view makeup as an art, too. Contouring, blending, choosing the right eye shadow and lipstick to enhance natural features - it's really like drawing on your face.

Asked to mime her idea of how she might like to die, 22-year-old Jackie Wainwright gave it her all, writhing and clawing at her skin as she imagined herself being devoured from inside by parasites. By the time her brief audition was over, the college student from Toms River, N.J., had red scratches from her fingernails raising up on her arms and legs. "I forgot I was growing my nails out again," she said. "I got kind of carried away. " Wainwright was one of a handful of men and women who auditioned Sunday to join the army of ghouls and zombies that takes over the grounds at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, N.J., each fall.

On Saturday morning, teenagers around the region will be sleeping in, working out, heading to a job, hitting the mall - all the weekend things teenagers do. But not Cherry Hill's seniors. At 8 a.m. Saturday, they'll be at school. And believe it or not, it was the students' decision. To satisfy the state's requirement of a 180-day school year, and to avoid the logistical nightmare of rescheduling graduation, the district opted for Saturday school to let seniors make up some of the year's snow days.

FOR THE SECOND TIME on the Phillies first homestand of 2014, a game was postponed because of inclement weather. The Phillies postponed last night's game against the Atlanta Braves at Citizens Bank Park about 2 hours before first pitch, as heavy rain invaded the ballpark before either team could take batting practice. The makeup game will be scheduled at a later date. The Phillies and Braves will resume their four-game series tonight, when Cliff Lee pitches opposite Atlanta Opening Day starter Julio Teheran.

STUDENTS AND parents in the Philadelphia School District may have to rearrange those spring-break plans. The district announced yesterday that schools will be open April 15, 16 and 17 - previously designated for spring recess - to make up for the six snow days so far this academic year. The last day of school would be June 19. By state law, elementary and secondary schools are required to be in session at least 180 days. However, the state secretary of education can approve 990 hours for secondary schools, 900 hours for elementary and 450 hours for kindergarten as the equivalent of 180 days.
