The growth-minded Center City law firm of Clark, Ladner, Fortenbaugh & Young added seven more lawyers yesterday. All are from the firm of Margolis, Edelstein & Scherlis and concentrate in insurance regulatory matters and insurance mergers and acquisitions.

The other four lawyers are associates. Clark Ladner has been on a campaign to hire lawyers from other firms - so- called "laterals" - who bring clients and new sources of business with them, Gureghian said.

Men may think their girlfriends or wives want them to read their minds, but a new study finds that what women (and men) want more is for their partners to try to understand. In short, showing you're trying to figure out why a partner is upset is more important than getting it right. This came out of a complicated study of empathy in couples. It was part of a longtime research collaboration between Robert J. Waldinger at Harvard Medical School and Marc S. Schulz, a Bryn Mawr College psychology professor who studied at Harvard.

DEAR ABBY : My 15-year-old stepson, "Justin," doesn't drink or do drugs. For the most part, he stays out of trouble. The problem is, he has been caught for the third time having unprotected sex. Justin has lied repeatedly about this. His father lets him get away with many things. But this is different. A 15-year-old boy can't take care of a baby, and having sex with multiple partners means exposing everyone involved to STDs. My husband and his ex have dealt with this by trying to ignore it. But the more I think about it, the more I see the danger of Justin's life being changed forever because his parents don't want to make him unhappy for a minute.
