TRENTON - Chris Christie, then the U.S. attorney for New Jersey, declared in 2004 that an indictment of a fund-raiser for Gov. Jim McGreevey painted "a very vivid picture of the corrupt and broken political system in the state of New Jersey. " Preet Bharara, the top federal prosecutor in Manhattan, said in January that corruption charges against New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver exposed "the very core of what ails Albany: lack of transparency, lack of accountability, and lack of principle joined with overabundance of greed, cronyism, and self-dealing.

She garnered worldwide acclaim - and an Oscar nomination - in 1997 for her role as a porn star in Boogie Nights . But Julianne Moore's breakout role came three years earlier, as Yelena in Louis Malle and Andre Gregory's Chekhov riff, Vanya on 42nd Street . On screen in virtually every scene, Moore radiated an aura both intelligent and sensual. A year later, she confirmed her ascendancy as a great actor in Todd Haynes' dystopian New Age satire Safe . The Boston University alumnus, who has made more than 60 films, finally won her first Oscar last year for Still Alice , a powerful drama about language, memory, and identity that was released Tuesday by Sony.

Much like trying to make a rational choice in the cereal aisle of a supermarket, picking a motorcycle from the staggering selection available in dealers' showrooms can be an overwhelming proposition. The Honda CBR650F, introduced as an all-new model for 2014, offers something of an antidote to the epidemic of specialization that has swept through the industry. A market that once had just a single divide - highway motorcycle or off-road machine, take your choice - has become increasingly focused on serving every possible niche of customer interest.

The Camden County Police Department, which for two years has patrolled only the city of Camden, hopes to begin justifying its broader ambition by wooing a second town into its fold - Pennsauken Township. County officials are expected to submit a detailed proposal this month to Pennsauken that would spell out how a county-run department would function in place of the township's current force, The Inquirer has learned. Pennsauken Public Safety Director John Kneib stressed in an interview that the report would be just an early look at the idea, and that any final decision - which he said would require the support of residents and township police officers - was far off. "It's got to blow us away," he said of the county's expected pitch.

Chip Kelly said that the Eagles have yet to receive trade offers for Evan Mathis, even though the all-pro guard has been on the market the last two offseasons. Mathis wants his contract restructured. The Eagles have declined to renegotiate, but they have allowed his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, to shop for a new team and a new deal. "That's through his agent and him," Kelly said Saturday.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska - We climbed gingerly down onto the narrow float of the seaplane that we had ridden in for a soft landing on Lake George, 45 miles northeast of downtown Anchorage. Just off to our right was the soaring Colony Glacier, its craggy azure surface providing a launch pad for polar winds blowing out to greet us. As we balanced on the float, the sound of gunshots echoed through the valley. At least that's what we thought they were, until we watched Humvee-sized blocks of ice calving off the glacier and landing spectacularly in the lake, sending giant plumes of water into the air.
