I'D HEARD that "Noah" was made animal-free - using no real animals - and I was prepared for a big-budget CGI-happy spectacle, which I got. But I wasn't prepared for what Darren Aronofsky's movie turns out to be - a milestone in blockbuster veganism, in mainstreaming the idea of committed nonviolence. The stakes are set in the opening seconds: Among quick clips of the Fall is one of a hand reaching for an apple - except that the apple is beating, like a heart, both visually and audibly.

"NOAH" director Darren Aronofsky has called his new epic "the least biblical film ever made" and, having seen it, I can tell you that he's full of beans. True, the movie is not woodenly faithful to the traditional story, but it's certainly biblical, padding the brief story of Noah (three dozen paragraphs in Genesis) with borrowings from later passages: from the Old Testament, the story of Abraham and Isaac; from the New Testament, miraculous pregnancies, paraphrasing of questions asked by Jesus of God, ideas from Revelations.

Just when we thought he'd turned in his divining rod, Alfred Johnston has discovered yet another waterside location for a restaurant. In his three decades in the business, Johnston has created a dozen fanciful eateries, many of them focused on views of waterfalls, water wheels, ponds, streams and rivers. Some of his better-known former restaurants include the Inn of the Four Falls in Conshohocken; the Jamaica Inn on Kelly Drive; Gulph Mills Inn in Gulph Mills; Manayunk Mining in Manayunk; and Philadelphia 1700 (most recently called the Riverfront)

When Alfred Johnston first approached Borough Council members with his idea of building a floating restaurant, they laughed. "Some people thought it was just a pipe dream," said Council President Gerald McTamney. Two years and two months later, it is on the verge of reality. Johnston has completed an agreement with the borough that will allow him to construct a 6,000-square-foot restaurant on a barge on the Schuylkill. The barge is to be tied to the north bank of the river adjacent to the site of an old mill on Washington Street, where he plans to put a parking lot. "I knew that with a little patience, I could get this thing going," said Johnston, 70, who owns a number of restaurants in the area, including the Gulph Mill Inn in West Conshohocken.

Standing in the smoldering rubble of yet another devastating fire, and dealing with people who have suffered often ruinous losses, the beleaguered insurance adjuster who must assess the damage surely is a prime candidate for burnout himself. But in Atom Egoyan's The Adjuster, one very strange film about alienation, Noah Render has the opposite response. For those who have lost everything in fires and who turn to him with their insurance claims, Noah is a figure of solace and salvation.

"We are all prisoners to the care of Noah," reads a passage from writer Josh Greenfeld's latest book. Greenfeld, an author and screenwriter (he won a best-screenplay Oscar nomination for Harry and Tonto), is undoubtably best known for his books about his brain-damaged son, Noah. In the first two books, A Child Called Noah and A Place for Noah, Greenfeld wrote of the hope and despair endured by him, his wife and their older son, Karl, in coping with Noah. Now, Greenfeld has written a third book, A Client Called Noah, that deals with his son's adolescent years.

Same-sex marriage is now legal in 14 states and Washington D.C. An estimated six million children are being raised by gay or lesbian parents. More than twenty million are growing up with a single mother or father. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, the traditional nuclear family - mom, dad, children - accounts for only 20 percent of households. This is the first in an occasional series of stories about the new modern family, one that may be living next door to you. On Sept.

"Leave no child behind. " I remember feeling just how generous those words sounded when I first heard our new President speak them. How wonderful that a top government leader finally was articulating an attitude I felt our society had lacked for so long. But then I got an uneasy feeling. I wondered if President Bush had both of my children in mind when he uttered those words. You see, one of my sons, Noah, is multiply handicapped and retarded. Would he be included, too? Noah is 21 years old - chronologically.

GASPÉ PENINSULA, New Brunswick - I am coaxing my 1999 Toyota along a road in a pelting rainstorm. Logging trucks career by, coating the windshield with water. A construction detour off Canadian Route 2N has us in country that would be idyllic if we could see it. My 12-year-old daughter Anne's iPod is on the fritz; my 15-year-old son, Noah, announces that our printed-out directions have west and east reversed. My lower back screams, "Stop and stretch"; my better judgment whispers, "What were you thinking, taking the kids solo on a 2,500-mile round trip to the Gaspé Peninsula?"

RUSSELL CROWE   went to meet the pope, but the pope said "No-ah. " Crowe and the makers of the big-budget film about the animal ark-ivist attended Pope Francis ' general audience yesterday but didn't get what they most wanted: a photo-op. Maybe Crowe will have better luck if he accompanies the Philadelphia delegation later this month. Crowe had lobbied hard for a papal thumbs-up for his film "Noah," and the ensuing publicity a Francis blessing would bring. The film has been banned in much of the Muslim world because of its depiction of the prophet Noah, while U.S. conservatives have complained the film takes liberties with the biblical account of the flood.

FOR A MOVIE based on a book written thousands of years ago, "Noah" is sure stirring up a fair amount of modern-day controversy. Before anyone had even seen Darren Aronofsky 's retelling of the Biblical tale, with a slightly tweaked story ark, certain Christian groups were upset that the movie wasn't literal enough in its rendering of the very old man and the sea. Now, three Arab countries have banned "Noah" on religious grounds because Islam...

At first, when the opportunity arose for my son and me to ski in Beaver Creek, Colo., for a scant three days, I was concerned that our different levels of ability - like the nascent pairings on Dancing With the Stars - would mean a lonely and humdrum trip. We are a study in contrasts: Noah is an expert downhill skier and snowboarder, while I have found a permanent home on the greens. Given that we had left friends and family at home working, and that we couldn't ski together very well, we each took advantage of the independence to tackle something new. Telemark skiing for Noah; cross-country for me. Lest you think cross-country, with its customary flat terrain and less cumbersome equipment, is a walk in the park, let me introduce you to McCoy Park.

Joakim Noah had 21 points and 10 rebounds, and the host Chicago Bulls beat the Brooklyn Nets, 96-85, on Saturday. The Bulls went on a 19-0 run that started in the second quarter and stretched into the third. Noah followed up the third triple-double of his career with another terrific performance that also included four blocks. He committed five turnovers, but even so it was an impressive follow-up to Thursday, when he had 23 points, 21 rebounds, and a career-high 11 blocks in a win over the 76ers.
