CAIRO - A lawmaker from Egypt's most conservative Islamist party resigned from parliament after he was caught lying to cover up a nose job, claiming the injuries to his heavily bandaged face were from a carjacking and beating. Parliament member Anwar al-Balkimy represented the Al-Nour party, whose members, known as Salafis, follow a strict interpretation of Islam that forbids cosmetic surgery as meddling in God's work. The party said Monday he had resigned; Al-Nour was forced to issue an embarrassing and apologetic statement.

Question: I have a 2-year-old daughter (almost 3). My mother lives several states away, but we Skype regularly; she rarely visits. She has always been very focused on looks - I grew up feeling unattractive - and now she has turned her attention to my daughter, saying things during our Skyping discussions like, "She's too fat. She needs to exercise every day. And she needs plastic surgery on her nose. " My daughter is an adorable and perfectly normal girl. I'm afraid she might start understanding these things soon.

Is it likely that Jerome R. Glazier wanted a nose job at age 64? Yes he did, an eight-member civil jury in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia declared yesterday. The jury rejected Glazier's claim that he never asked Dr. Julius "Dr. Nose" Newman, one of the areas' better-known plastic surgeons, to touch up his humped old schnozzle in 1992, while fixing Glazier's deviated septum. Nevertheless, the jury found the doctor liable for not telling Glazier of all the risks involved in the cosmetic part of the surgery, and awarded Glazier $32,500 to compensate him for the doctor's "wrongful conduct.

The woman was the kind who turned heads. Dr. Ferdinand A. Ofodile listened with disbelief as she explained who she was and why she had come to him. She was a professional model. She wanted a new nose. She'd brought along pictures of faces with noses she liked . . . white faces. "I could not believe it!" recalled the doctor, his eyes widening with the memory of his disbelief. "I asked her, 'But why? You're so . . . beautiful!' " The Nigerian-born New York City surgeon, who wears his own classically wide, flat, unreconstructed African schnoz proudly, was in Philadelphia yesterday to lecture colleagues from around the world on his increasingly popular specialty: African American nose jobs.

A Serious Man , the Book of Job according to the Coen Brothers, is set to the music of Jefferson Airplane. This unsettling, shaggy, surrealistic pillow of a movie - a mixed bag more funny-strange than ha-ha - goes something like this: There was a man in the land of Minneapolis, circa 1967, whose name was Larry Gopnik. That man was blameless and upright, one that feared God and eschewed evil. There were born unto him one son, about to become a bar mitzvah, and one daughter, secretly taking money from Larry's wallet to procure a nose job. His substance was an associate professorship in physics at the university, where he had 7,000 calculations and 500 proofs and was up for tenure, and a tidy suburban split-level with a television antenna unreliably receiving signals of F Troop and from God. It was not Larry's students who were tested; it was Larry, the man of science who cannot explain the mystical tragedies that befell him. He was blackmailed by a student, betrayed by his wife, deceived by his children, and the victim of slander.

The FBI's plastic surgeon said former Spring Garden drug kingpin Richie Ramos definitely had a "nose job," but he came out looking not so good - sort of like Karl Malden or Porky Pig. Another doctor disagreed: Ramos had no nose job unless you consider too many punches to the beak to be a nose job. The government doctor said someone had tried to alter Ramos's appearance by ripping out pounds of fat from his tummy, fading old bullet scars on...

Richard Barone, an admitted South Philadelphia card shark, told the judge he "staged" an auto accident in 1986 to collect insurance, but denied his ex-girlfriend's charge that he forced her to play a role in the scam. "She was part of it," Barone said yesterday after pleading guilty to theft by deception and conspiracy before Common Pleas Judge Arthur S. Kafrissen. "We were a team," Barone said. "We robbed two casinos in Atlantic City together and we did the accident. " The judge yesterday placed Barone, 48, on five years' probation so he could enter the Federal Witness Protection Program for his cooperation in other cases.

After 15 seasons, the Boston Red Sox apparently will need a new leader. Jason Varitek has been absent for the first two days of workouts by pitchers and catchers. General manager Ben Cherington offered the soon-to-be 40-year-old captain a minor-league deal months ago, but the catcher never responded. Varitek has three options: He can take the minor-league deal; try to convince another team to give an aging backstop with declining skills a chance as a backup; or retire. It must be noted that Varitek's close friend and fellow veteran Tim Wakefield, retired last week.
