NEW YORK - The NBA and players association are ready to try mediation, and commissioner David Stern wants results quickly. Stern said last week during an interview with WFAN radio in New York that without a deal Tuesday, when the sides meet with federal mediator George Cohen, his "gut" feeling was that there would be no NBA basketball on Christmas. Owners are opening two days of board meetings Wednesday, and Stern wants to be able to bring a deal to them. But can a mediator swoop in and smooth out two years of bickering in one day?

Now five months old, the Philadelphia Orchestra Association's bankruptcy case has come to a critical fork in the road. Wednesday's hearing before Judge Eric L. Frank was a subdued affair, with only a few lawyers present and no orchestra players or staff, but it was important for laying out two possible imminent paths - a quick resolution or a long, acrimonious battle that could stretch on for some time and have tragic consequences for the orchestra....

For the first time since Catholic high school teachers in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia went on strike last week, there will be no school for any of the 16,000 students beginning Wednesday and until a settlement is reached and striking teachers return. And the archdiocese rejected an offer Tuesday evening by the Association of Catholic Teachers, Local 1776, that could have allowed students to return to class. The union had offered to send its teachers back to work at the 17 high schools - if the archdiocese agreed to bring in a mediator to help resolve the labor dispute.

Interior designers are often privy to their clients' inner secrets. "When you are in someone's bedroom with their money, you couldn't get any closer," says Miriam Ansell, an interior designer with offices in New Hope and Manhattan. That also means interior designers get to see their clients in the middle of domestic disputes, and can end up becoming mediators in real-life design wars. Most couples argue about money during the interior design process. "Everyone gets surprised at how much it costs to ship product, to store and warehouse the product," says John Kelly of John Kelly Interior Design in Philadelphia and a member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID)

BEIRUT, Lebanon - Turkey's prime minister compared Syria's president to Libya's Moammar Gadhafi on Wednesday, as Damascus defied international calls to end the crackdown on a five-month uprising. President Bashar al-Assad has unleashed tanks, ground troops, and snipers in an attempt to retake control in rebellious areas.

Negotiators for the Neshaminy School District and its teachers union had positive talks for more than two hours Thursday night without any breakthroughs, school board member William O'Connor said.

The union did not offer a counterproposal to the district's July 18 offer, O'Connor said, and talked about using the salary steps in its proposal.
