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.

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.

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.
