Smart-home technology is building quickly to a multi-billion-dollar business in Western Europe, say market researchers at Parks Associates, and the Malvern-based "Internet of Things" platform developer Zonoff aims to score a big hunk of that overseas action. On Tuesday, Zonoff, Inc. announced a partnership with U.K.-based Connected World Services to offer an "innovative IoT-enabled home management and services platform to companies throughout Europe. " The marriage is significant, as Connected World is a division of Dixons Carphone plc., Britain's leading electronics retailer and a major products seller in Ireland, the Nordic countries, Greece and Spain.

Despite the rain, more than 20,000 attended the 87th Radnor Hunt Races on May 20 in Malvern. The event, sanctioned by the National Steeplechase Association, brings in some of the best steeplechase riders and horses from around the country.

The $200,000 raised will benefit the open-space and clean-water programs of the Brandywine Conservancy, which helps protect 62,000 acres of land.

That man on the Golden State Warriors' bench, the one they sometimes see Warriors head coach Steve Kerr talking to - they recognize that guy, even almost two decades later. In his eighth NBA stop, Ron Adams is acknowledged as an NBA defensive guru, an assistant coach to be trusted with a vital part of the game. For a group of guys around Philadelphia in their late 20s, Adams isn't just any assistant coach - he also was their assistant coach, when they were a little band of third graders at Valley Forge Elementary School, playing in the Malvern Summer League.

A former star swimmer at Malvern Preparatory School has sued it for alleged negligence, accusing officials and employees at the Main Line boys' school of failing to stop a guidance counselor and swimming coach who harassed him sexually for more than a year. In the suit, filed Thursday in Chester County Court, lawyers for William Beard said the school and a private swimming association on campus did not properly supervise Emily Feeney or prevent her actions, even after the student and his father told employees that she had sent a barrage of unwanted sexual emails and text messages.

Mercita Brett Kane likely spent more years at what is now the campus of Immaculata University than most students, her family says. "She was in the boarding school in Immaculata from the time she was 4 years old," in 1918, her daughter, Maryanna Massey, said in a phone interview. Mrs. Kane attended elementary, high school, and college classes there, graduating in 1935. The reason is that a great aunt, Mother Loyola, headed the religious order, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, which had opened what is now Villa Maria Lower School on the Malvern campus in 1914.

When Gil Hanse flew to Rio de Janeiro with his wife and the couple's youngest child at the start of 2013 to supervise construction of the golf course for the next Summer Olympics, he figured it would be "a slam dunk" to build it in about 10 months given that grass could grow year-round in the balmy Brazilian climate. There was no way, however, that Hanse, a Malvern resident who is one of golf's most highly regarded course designers, could have foreseen the land ownership disputes, environmental protests, logistical nightmares and broken promises that turned the historic project into a stressful undertaking of more than two years for him, his team, and his family.
