Dear Joyce: I have an accounting degree and experience, but I cannot seem to get a better job or promotion. At 32, I'm getting pretty discouraged. Keep trying - your credentials are fine and jobs are available. The problem for your baby boom generation is that there are only so many managerial places on the pyramid. Commenting on the limited access to executive suites, Michael Driver, a professor of management and organization in the University of Southern California school of business administration, points out the demographic fact that boomers born between 1940 and 1959 are clogging corporate management ladders.

THERE WILL COME a time in your weight-loss journey when you simply hit a wall, that unpleasant and discouraging plateau. Nearly every fitness enthusiast from beginner to advanced will face this challenge. Has your progress stalled despite your faithful commitment to working out and eating right? If not, be assured: At some point it will. When you hit a plateau, it seems as if nothing you do will make the scales budge. This is a critical time for a person trying to lose weight, and many people throw in the towel at this point instead of pressing on. I know I have felt the frustration of a plateau.

Samantha Weer is not easily rattled. After going scoreless in the first quarter of a girls' basketball game on Dec. 12, the senior from Life Center Academy knew she still had plenty of time to treat the home fans to a little pre-holiday celebration. So it came as no surprise to Weer that, when she returned to the court for the second quarter, the 5-foot-6 all-purpose player sank three straight baskets to surpass the 1,000-point plateau.

Likely to be retained in the memory banks are Mike Rotay's 4-point play, Frank Grzywacz's rare 3-point basket at the end of the third quarter and Andrew Hyde's no-look shovel pass for a fast-break basket by Rennie Williamson. But the object of the game for Wissahickon has become something much less spectacular, coach Bob Ambler acknowledged after Friday's 86-60 demolition of Dover in the opening round of the PIAA Class AAA state boys' basketball playoffs at Quakertown. Now the object of the game is to climb to a new level in each precious game that remains in the Trojans' memorable season.

In the early years of what we call our restaurant renaissance, Philadelphians were content to travel anywhere in our sprawling city if it meant finding a great restaurant meal there. Then along came Walnut Street, where within a few dazzling blocks one could sample a connoisseur's collection of blue-chip eateries that included Susanna Foo, Le Bec-Fin, Striped Bass, Circa, Il Portico, Brasserie Perrier and Nicholas Nickolas. Suddenly, Walnut Street was the place to go for a fashionable feed.

A week before Lower Merion's 53-41 win over Academy Park on Wednesday, the Aces did not have the look of a good basketball team. But three games later, all wins, the Aces are 3-2, 2-0 in the Central League, and have shown they could reach the .500 plateau that head coach Mike Manning aimed for before the season began. "Against Upper Dublin (a 47-26 loss), if the right player had shot the ball a little better, that score wouldn't have looked so bad," said Manning. "Against Academy Park, we were patient.

Former New Jersey Transportation Commissioner Louis J. Gambaccini was formally hired as SEPTA general manager yesterday, ending a year filled with political turmoil and uncertainty at the nation's fourth-largest transit authority. Gambaccini said his major task would be to find the political consensus and money needed to rebuild SEPTA's decaying system. "I believe it's do-able," he said. "It's got to be do-able. It's been done elsewhere, in New York City and in Paris. . . . But I really have no instant miracles.

A blustery wind carried yarmulkes atwirl like so many fallen leaves yesterday as Israel inaugurated a new settlement on the Golan Heights, underscoring its determination to never return the land to Syria. The timing was significant, as Israeli negotiators in Madrid had just completed a disputatious meeting with Syrians who are offering to make peace with Israel only after it returns the plateau captured in the 1967 war. But, to Israel the Golan is not only a security blanket but also the source of half the country's water supply.

IN "HECTOR and the Search for Happiness," the world's dumbest Englishman embarks on a search for the meaning of life. I say dumb because he hops out of bed with doting girlfriend Rosamund Pike to begin this globe-trotting search, which anybody who is not legally blind can see is already within his lucky grasp. But off he goes, on the flimsiest and most nonsensical of pretexts - he's a psychiatrist who can't make his patients happy, so he needs to learn what happiness means by conducting worldwide "research.

The recent Philadelphia University graduates, all cross-country runners at the school, were trying to figure out what they were doing back here on a Sunday morning at Belmont Plateau. Stockholm syndrome, they finally came up with, realizing what they were about to put their bodies through. "Here we're paying to run," said 2015 Philly U. grad Eric Lacy of being back at the place where he had run so many college races. They were laughing, of course. The course itself is a Philadelphia icon, for generations a communal gathering spot for athletes of all speeds and sizes and ages.

Philadelphia School District scores on a national standardized test appear to be flattening out, but district officials noted that the scores still reflected strong growth over four years. Reading scores on the Terra Nova rose slightly from spring 2005 to fall 2006, results released by the district yesterday show, but there was a small drop in math and language-arts scores. The district compared those periods because of concerns about the accuracy of the fall 2005 results. "We have seen a flattening out," acknowledged Paul Vallas, the district's chief executive.

Before Wissahickon began preseason field hockey practice, first-year coach Lucy Gil got a call from a prospective player she had never met. Freshman Katie O'Donnell, 14, called to say that she was going to be late starting practice with the Trojans and asked if that would be OK. The reason? O'Donnell had made the U.S. under-16 national team and would be practicing with it. Gil, who had come to Wissahickon from a coaching job in North Jersey, assured O'Donnell it was all right.

Getting to be a 1,000-point scorer was not easy for Hatboro-Horsham's Jen Northcott. It took determination. A 6-foot-1 senior post player, Northcott became the fourth girls' basketball player in Hatters history to reach that milestone when she scored off an offensive rebound on Friday in the third quarter of a 43-35 win over host Upper Merion. She finished the game with 11 points, giving her 1,002 for high school. "I think my strength is, I don't give up," Northcott said.
