Joel Embiid was on the court Monday, doing what 76ers coach Brett Brown called "basic stuff. " But just the sight of the 7-foot center sinking corner threes and midrange shots during a workout had to be a break from the reality of coaching a 1-28 team for the third-year coach. "We love seeing him as much as we can," Brown said of Embiid, who's usually on a different workout schedule than his teammates. "This just happens to be one of these times were he can get rehab in and be a part of us. But it's good to see him. " By now, Sixers fans know the Embiid has yet to play after being selected third overall in the 2014 draft.

REGARDING the Jena 6 incident, six human beings violently and physically attack and cause serious bodily harm to another human begin for an inconsiderate but nonviolent act of ignorance, and people are marching in the streets for these criminals to be let out of jail. This whole incident is as obvious as the nose on our face, or night and day or, should I say, black and white. One act is a crime, the other act is not. Ronald Suarez, Philadelphia

In the years since Tom Stoppard's Night and Day premiered in 1978, journalism has undergone such seismic changes that the difference between now and then is as great as, well, night and day. The play is set in the fictional African country of Kambawe, in a state of violent postcolonial upheaval as a thuggish dictator is threatened by a Soviet-backed insurgency. Its center is the place where political events meet the people who report them to the rest of the globe, and its concerns are the commercial and competitive pressures, ambitions and necessities under which war journalism operates.

Night and Day, from the inventive Belgian filmmaker Chantal Akerman, is a minor-key, minimalist homage to Francois Truffaut's triangular classic, Jules and Jim. A boy-meets-girl-meets-another-boy love story set in a low-end Paris, the film is quiet, elliptical and sparked by the presence of three unusual young stars. As Julie, Akerman's earthy heroine, Guilaine Londez exudes a dusky radiance. Round and big-bodied, with thick black hair and a gamine smile, Julie wanders the streets of nighttime Paris emitting a vibrant glow - as if she had headlights for eyes.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - The 76ers are expected to finish among the NBA's worst teams for a third straight season. But there's a sense of excitement at Stockton University that wasn't present at the squad's previous two training camps. "It feels night and day compared to 24 months ago when we were at St. Joe's," said general manager Sam Hinkie, referring to the 2013 training camp at Hagan Arena. "Everything about the kind of things we can control behind the scenes feels different. " Hinkie pointed to the additions of Todd Wright as assistant coach/head of strength and conditioning and David T. Martin as director of health and performance.

Joe Jackson borrows from his own catalog for his new Night and Day 2 (Sony Classical). In 1982, Britain's smarmiest, literate power-punk transformed his sound from tart guitars to that of Tin Pin Alley pop with Night and Day. Its sound was lush but lean, filled with computer-driven Latin rhythms, quietly complex piano signatures, and sophisticated melodies that made moments like "Steppin' Out" soar with a memorable esprit previous works merely...

KISSIMMEE, Fla. - Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez allowed two runs in two innings Thursday, a nondescript spring debut for the highest-ticketed international free agent in Phillies history. "My plan that I had all along was to show my work ethic today," the righthander said through a translator. "I don't look at the numbers. " Manager Ryne Sandberg said Gonzalez had his "best stuff since he's come over here. " Gonzalez, 28, pitched the third and fourth innings of a 6-3 loss to the Houston Astros.

It's a lovely cabaret setup: tables and candles, wine and roses, two pianos, tuxedos, and glittery gowns. In Hot 'n' Cole: A Cole Porter Celebration , the Mauckingbird Theatre Company, specializing in adapting classic works through a queer lens, has chosen Cole Porter's gorgeous songs - melodic, witty, sexy, and sophisticated - as its classic text. If you know the songs, it's a chance to hear them again, and if you don't, it's an entertaining discovery. Or it would be, if the six performers sang well enough to do the songs justice.

Whether near to me or far It's no matter where you are I think of you Day and night Night and day. - Cole Porter "Night and Day" When Frank Sinatra sang "Night and Day," he used Cole Porter's elegant lyric to communicate a fixation on an object of his attention that he just couldn't get out of his head. And as we learned last week, while Sinatra was artfully obsessing about romance, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and its director, J. Edgar Hoover, were obsessing, day and night, about Sinatra.

Testimony began yesterday in the Superior Court trial of two men charged with the 1990 execution-style murder of a Camden man. Sherlock Anthony, 34, of Jersey City, and Calvin Nesmith, 43, of Philadelphia, are accused of joining two other men in a robbery at the Everett Street home of Wade Hohney, 35, a crime that culminated in Hohney's shooting death. Three young children in the house were not harmed. A key element of the case will be how the jury views the testimony of Rodney Wilcher, 30, a Jersey City man who was allowed to plead guilty to a lesser charge of aggravated manslaughter with an expected 20-year sentence in exchange for his cooperation.
