When Mark Calzaretta watches a jury hearing evidence in a high-stakes lawsuit, it isn't necessarily an impartial panel of citizen peers he sees. Rather, Calzaretta sees 10 human beings with emotional biases that, if studied diligently, can help lawyers predict with startling accuracy the outcome of a case, often before it is tried. Calzaretta is a founding member of Magna Legal Services, a Center City firm that specializes in modeling juror behavior for lawyers who want to squeeze every advantage out of their arguments.

Jenkintown educators showed off their outcome-based education plan to state officials yesterday beginning with a melt-in-your-mouth example of outcome learning - scones, turnovers and freshly brewed coffee. Eight students had started their day at 6:30 a.m. to stir the batter, heat the ovens and bake scones and coffee cake, muffins, turnovers and other goodies. And they got to skip morning classes. David McGuire, a senior, and Rich Whittingham, a junior, had poured 41 and one-quarter cups of water into the coffeemaker and had burned just one batch of muffins.

This is America, as vice president Al Gore reminded us last night, and we put country ahead of party. But this is Philadelphia, where bitterness often lingers well after election day. How are People Paper readers taking last night's remarkable speeches? A survey shows they're disappointed but - after 36 days of legal wrangling - resigned to the outcome. Terri Maloney, 62, the former vice president of Philadelphia Gas Works, operates a business out of her home in Ambler. She is a registered Democrat who voted for Gore.

The Dow barely eked out a gain for another record close. Other, broader market indexes finished lower, however. Many traders said they awaited the outcome of tensions with Iraq, while others said they just wanted to start on the three-day weekend.

Who's Next? The Flyers will play the Bruins, Penguins, or Lightning in the Eastern Conference semifinals. That will be determined Wednesday night in a pair of Game 7s as Pittsburgh hosts Tampa Bay and Boston hosts Montreal. If Boston wins, it will play the Flyers no matter the outcome of the other game.

THE PRESIDENTIAL election circus train has left the station. The smoke-and-mirrors sideshow is cranking up. Who will decide the outcome? What will decide the outcome? Jeb Bush or Katherine Harris? The bogus electorial college? Choice-point database? The Supreme Court? Another 9/11-type event? The possibilities are endless. Who knows what surprises are in store? The election certainly won't be decided by the women and men on the street who cast their votes in the polling booths.

Rummaging through old clips this past week, what should I happen to stumble across but my predictions for golf for the year 2003. Fair is fair, so I decided to grade myself. Prediction: Tiger Woods will win his fifth consecutive money title, eclipsing Tom Watson's record of four (1977-80). Woods will also win at least one major (Masters) for a fifth straight year. Outcome: Wrong and wrong. Prediction: After all the hoopla, after the conclusion of the Masters, a woman will be graciously welcomed as a member of Augusta National as if nothing had ever happened.

Outcome: The Dodgers won the best-of-five series, three games to one. Turning point: Oct. 7 will always be known as Black Friday in Philadelphia. With the series tied at one game apiece, the Phillies took a 5-3 lead into the top of the ninth inning at Veterans Stadium. With two outs, the Dodgers tied the score when umpire Bruce Froemming ruled that Davey Lopes was safe on an infield hit, although television replays indicated otherwise. Lopes scored the winning run on Bill Russell's single.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK at current and upcoming union negotiations. Kudos to Local 234 of the Transport Workers for announcing they'll do everything in their power to avoid a strike at this time. That's labor statesmanship in a tough period. Philly teachers have a legitimate grievance when earnings are compared to their suburban counterparts - but it will probably have to wait for better times. City employees are likely to face both layoffs and hard bargaining. If, as is quite possible, one outcome of personnel cuts for them is an increased workload for remaining employees, there will be a case for a modest increase.

The messages local law enforcement personnel sent one another - more than 5,000 - were crude, referring to people as animals, using profane terms as labels - and, worst, containing some horrifying jokes implying violence. They were fired. That was in Camden County, where 11 white prison guards lost their jobs for racially insulting texts sent and received on personal cellphones, on and off the clock. In Pennsylvania, dozens of prosecutors, judges, and investigators who exchanged hundreds of sexually demeaning emails on government computers are still working.

Without being a participant, the Flyers are making progress in the Stanley Cup playoffs. That's because Chicago and surprising Detroit are leading their respective series. If both teams advance, it could help the Flyers get better picks in the next two drafts. The Flyers own Tampa Bay's first pick in the draft on June 26, a selection they acquired in the Braydon Coburn deal. Tampa Bay trails Detroit, two games to one, in their best-of-seven series. If the Lightning lose, they could fall as low as No. 22, and the Flyers would get that pick in the first round in addition to their own No. 7 selection.

In a few days, surgeons at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia are scheduled to operate on the heart of Graziella Nobile's newborn baby, fixing a grave arterial defect that, if left unrepaired, would be fatal. The hospital lately has a stellar record on that type of operation, in the sense of getting patients home alive. From 2009 to 2012, the most recent data available, 60 infants had this surgery, called an arterial switch, and all survived. The part that doctors have yet to figure out completely is the brain.

HAVE YOU ever exited a play thinking, "I would have had a different ending," or, "I thought that character should have made that other choice"? Well, now you have the chance to determine the onstage action. Thursday, Philly's comedy-centric 1812 Productions launches its 18th season with a presentation that pretty much defines the phrase "interactive theater. " "Intimate Exchanges" by Alan Ayckbourn centers on the relationships of four people, a married-12-years couple and a younger man and woman.

After nearly two hours of grinding, scoreless soccer between Germany and Argentina on Sunday, deep into the second period of overtime in the World Cup, Germany's Mario Goetze finally knocked in a goal. A huge crowd watching a huge screen TV in the middle of the closed 700 block of South Street erupted with cheers. And then began to chant: "Deutschland!" "Deutschland!" "Deutschland!" The massive block party, organized by Brauhaus Schmitz, a restaurant and beer hall on the block and the unofficial epicenter of German soccer fandom in Philadelphia, showered itself with confetti.

Four of Philadelphia's 26 state representatives are running for reelection under a cloud, implicated in a crime by the state attorney general but not charged with anything. The legal limbo, arising from an aborted sting operation, vexes leaders of the dominant city Democratic Party, who say they don't want to appear tolerant of corruption but also are reluctant to abandon their colleagues. The consensus: Sit tight. Only one of the four House members has any opposition in the May 20 primary.

Connecticut made the big move, and maybe, someday, it still will pay. The state built a 40,000-seat stadium and millions were poured into moving up from I-AA to the Big East, from on-campus bleachers to a place closer to Hartford. A decade later, the Huskies are still waiting for their invitation to the big time. National titles in men's basketball, more of them in women's basketball, a Big East title in football. . . . Still waiting. There still is a very good chance UConn will fill one of the openings in the Atlantic Coast Conference if the ACC is raided by one or more of the other big-boy leagues.

It is really never easy for these 76ers, so why would Tuesday night's narrow escape with a victory be any different? After they led by 91-81, the Sixers had to eke out a 100-98 win over the Dallas Mavericks at the Wells Fargo Center. "It's been my experience that sometimes when it comes easily offensively, defensively you don't dig in," Sixers coach Doug Collins said. "But we had some guys step up for us. We got some guys to make plays for us, but it wasn't easy. " The Mavericks had an opportunity to at least send the game into overtime.
