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...

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.

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.

CHICAGO - The 76ers got a glimpse of what they had hoped to get out of their center position this season, only the person who produced the monster game at the United Center on Thursday night played for the Chicago Bulls. The Sixers were victimized by a mammoth triple-double from Chicago center Joakim Noah, who single-handedly wreaked havoc with 23 points, 21 rebounds and 11 blocks to lead the Bulls to a 93-82 victory over the Sixers at the United Center. The loss extended the Sixers' season-high losing streak to seven games, and it reduced their ever-shrinking playoff hopes even more.

Ilene Raymond Rush writes and blogs from Elkins Park A few years back, when I was teaching fiction writing at Penn State's main campus, I'd ask my student advisees a single question: "Can you think about doing anything else?" It was a question that had been posed to me early in my undergraduate English education by an earnest female professor when I eagerly confessed that I wanted to be a writer of short fiction. While it brought me up short, I have to admit that the question was an honest response to the lousy state of the economy in the mid-1970s.

DEERFIELD, Ill. - Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau says center Joakim Noah is a "game-time decision" for Tuesday's playoff game against the 76ers because of a sprained left ankle. The Bulls trail 3-1 in this first-round series and are trying to avoid becoming just the fifth top seed to lose to an eighth seed. They will almost certainly again be without Noah, who was injured in Game 3 and sat out Game 4. Thibodeau had said Monday that Noah was "most likely out" for Game 5 but changed his stance slightly at the morning shootaround on Tuesday, saying, "Maybe he gets better from now until tonight.

The Bulls, still not over the loss of Derrick Rose, are faced with the prospect of playing Game 4 without Joakim Noah. Chicago's starting center suffered a sprained left ankle as he was fouled attempting a layup in the third quarter of his team's Game 3 loss on Friday. "Most likely he'll be out tomorrow," Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said Saturday following a team film session at the Four Seasons Hotel. "It's a sprain. I haven't gotten the grade yet but it's doubtful. We'll see him tomorrow.

ST. LOUIS - Becoming pregnant at age 47 wasn't a worry for Robin Brussels. "I enjoyed every minute of being pregnant," she said. Still, it was a surprise. "I thought I was going through pre-menopause," she said. "It just happened. " Brussels, now 48, gave birth in December to a 6-pound, 10-ounce boy named Noah she carried for 39 weeks. He was a cesarean birth, as were her four older children, ages 18 to 28. Noah was the first child born to her and her husband, Mark Brussels, 56. They've been married nearly four years.
