Q: I'm starting my freshman year in college and am leaving my high-school boyfriend behind. I expect to find new romantic partners, but I don't want to get a bad reputation. How many sexual partners is too many? If I have more than a dozen, am I a slut? What's the average for a normal woman?   Mia: The number of men you choose to sleep with is between you and God, if you are a believer. Don't worry about what your high-school boyfriend thinks, and forget about what society says.

The 177 partners at Morgan Lewis & Bockius, the city's largest and the nation's seventh largest law firm, earned $250,000 each in profits during 1986, the highest of any Philadelphia law firm, according to a survey released by The American Lawyer, a publication that reports on the legal profession. However, the amount disbursed in profits to Morgan Lewis' partners, only placed them in a tie for 56th place among the nation's top 99 law firms. The 41 partners at the New York law firm of Wacthell Lipton Rosen & Katz topped the charts, with each partner taking $1.4 million in profits out of the firm's net earnings, the New York-based publication said.

One of the biggest professional firms based in Philadelphia - the accounting firm ParenteBeard L.L.C. , an upstate success story that chose the city as its headquarters during its rapid growth of the mid-2000s - is losing a major practice group to a national rival, following departures by other partners.

WILMINGTON - If Philadelphia has a second casino built, SugarHouse Casino could see its revenue drop by 24 percent, a gaming consultant testified in Chancery Court on Thursday. Because of shifts in the competitive local market for gaming, the owners of SugarHouse would be prudent to scale back their expansion plans, said Steven Rittvo, president of Innovation Group, a casino advisory firm. In 2009, when SugarHouse broke ground on Delaware Avenue in Fishtown, the goal was to have expanded the size and scope of the casino by now, including doubling the number of slots to 3,000 and adding a 10-story parking garage.

City Councilman James Kenney is to introduce legislation Thursday that would give a tax credit to employers who provide health-care benefits to same-sex partners, saying his bill would make Philadelphia, already a popular city for gays and lesbians to live, even more so. "A lot of changes we are making will make Philadelphia more attractive to LGBT people and make them want to settle here," Kenney said. "They are good job creators, good taxpayers, and good employees. " His legislation also would guarantee partners of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people the right to visit their loved ones in hospitals and make medical decisions for them.

* PARTNERS. 9 and 9:30 tonight, FX. TWO DECADES ago, Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence were playing very different broadcast personalities on very different hit shows. Tonight, the stars of "Frasier" and "Martin" join forces in a new FX sitcom, "Partners," as very different Chicago lawyers. "We sat down in a room about two years ago and just fell in love," Grammer said of the otherwise unromantic-sounding process that led them back to TV. "Partners," which shares a name with at least two previous sitcoms, is the latest cable comedy to be sold on the "10/90" model, in which a network orders 10 episodes, whose ratings performance may trigger an order for 90 more, as it did with Charlie Sheen's "Anger Management.

When Gigi was 5, her mother, Sarah Eisenstein, was getting worried. A big child - born at 10 pounds, 13 ounces - Gigi was gaining weight, as the family dined on hot dogs and ate chips as a snack. Now, Eisenstein cooks eggplant and zucchini fries for Gigi and sister Isabella. Their mother learned these skills at Cooking with Friends, a Children's Hospital of Philadelphia program. Gigi, 8, tall for her age, is at a healthy weight. The program that helped Eisenstein will expand into a community-based study, thanks to a new partnership between Children's and the food service company Aramark, announced Wednesday at the Enterprise Center in West Philadelphia.

Ever since discount designer-apparel department store Century 21 signed on in April as an anchor tenant in the Gallery at Market East, retail analysts have speculated what else might move in. Among the names dropped: "fast fashion" brands such as Uniqlo and Forever 21. Maybe a high-end movie theater. Now that Gallery owner Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust (PREIT) has struck a partnership with retail developer Macerich Co. - a joint venture to redevelop the struggling Center City shopping mall - industry observers have a better clue.

A switch to tires, and a quarter-century later, Sylvester finds himself leading a David vs. Goliath effort to keep local dealers like himself on equal footing against the Pep Boys and Mr. Tires of the world. "There are a lot of large tire chains coming into the market and buying up as many of the mom-and-pop shops as they can," said Sylvester, who started in the business, with a partner, by owning stores in Ambler and Bustleton.
