Word of Hazem Najir's death was spreading even before reporters finished talking with the cops. Cab drivers have more than a passing interest in the murder of another cabbie, and Najir was the third cabbie killed this year. The cabbies' first question: "Did he have his shield open or closed?" Police said there was no shield at all in the leased Yellow Cab driven by Najir, 31, of Bensalem, Bucks County, who was found shortly after 8 a.m. yesterday slumped over the steering wheel of his cab on Bloyd Street near Woodlawn in Germantown.

*  MARVEL'S AGENTS OF SHIELD . 8 tonight, 6ABC. *  THE GOLDBERGS . 9 tonight, 6ABC. *  TROPHY WIFE . 9:30 tonight, 6ABC. *  LUCKY 7 . 10 tonight, 6ABC. THERE'S probably more chance that gods and superheroes walk among us than that a network will successfully launch an entire night of new shows at once. That's not stopping ABC, which tonight kicks off an all-new Tuesday lineup with "Marvel's Agents of SHIELD" - whose premise is that gods and superheroes do occasionally walk among us - and ends with "Lucky 7," in which mortals win the lottery.

The question is not whether Eric Lindros will play in the Flyers' regular- season finale tonight, against the New York Islanders in Uniondale, N.Y. He won't. It's how well he will play this weekend in the NHL playoffs wearing a face shield. Never having worn a shield before, Lindros didn't seem to know how it might affect him. He was just glad that the cut under his left eye from Sunday's 2-0 loss to the New York Rangers will not keep him on the bench. "I'd much prefer not to have to wear it," Lindros said yesterday of the shield, which will attach to his helmet and cover his face from eyebrows to nose.

Randall Cunningham's newest fashion statement is so ultra cool, it's illegal. At training camp yesterday, the Eagles quarterback sported a plastic eye shield on his helmet that allows him to look out but reflects like a mirror at defenders. However, league rules prohibit the use of reflector shields, said Greg Aiello, director of communications for the NFL. "What is permitted, according to our game-operations manual, is a plastic face shield either clear or lightly tinted for eye protection - provided the league is supplied in advance with appropriate medical documentation that the shield is needed," he said.

When you drive a cab, you have to figure: Do I try for the green light, or take the alley? Do I pick up the guy in the Eagles cap, or head down the block for the guy in a suit? Do I take the cab without the plexiglass partition behind the driver's seat, or do I wait 20 minutes for one with the shield? You figure the odds. That's what Phyllis Cox did when she got behind the wheel of Yellow Cab 847 the other day. It was the cab that Hazem Najir was driving Saturday night when a killer stuck a gun to his head and fired twice.

Cabbie Eddie Byrd had planned to install a protective plexiglass shield yesterday in the new taxi he'd recently leased. But on Sunday, Byrd was killed in an incident he'd hoped the shield would prevent. The United Cab driver was shot to death in an apparent robbery attempt in Southwest Philadelphia. Police said his pockets were turned out when they found him shot once in the back of the head outside his cab on Whitby Avenue near Cobbs Creek Parkway. He was at least the eighth cab driver slain here in the past five years, and the fourth this year.

It wasn't the 18 points that Monty Mack scored in the first half. It wasn't even the 14-2 run by Massachusetts in the second half. The Minutemen beat the St. Joseph's Hawks, 72-66, yesterday at the Fieldhouse mostly because reserve guard Jonathan DePina bothered Rashid Bey even more than Bey's plastic face shield did. Known for their intensity more than anything this season, the Minutemen once again displayed a smothering defense and opportunistic...

Tired of seeing the game through what he said looked like a "dirty windshield," Flyers center Eric Lindros skated through practice yesterday without the plastic face shield he had worn on the ice since he injured his left eye on April 30. Afterward, Lindros did not say whether he would wear the shield in Saturday's Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals against the New Jersey Devils, but he made it clear that he did not like wearing it. ...

When the U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments Monday in the nation's most closely watched immigration lawsuit, Libia Rodriguez will be among the expected thousands of demonstrators at the court's white marble steps. The case, United States v. Texas , could be a life-changer for Rodriguez, 31, an undocumented Mexican immigrant who lives in Coatesville with her husband, also here illegally, and their three U.S.-born children. Depending on the justices' ruling, the couple could put aside their worries of being sent back to Mexico.

They share a nickname, a zero on the right side of their won-lost records, and an understanding that their rise into the ranks of South Jersey's top wrestlers has been the result of sweat and sacrifice. But what Cameron Shields and Jason Carter really want to share is a ride to Atlantic City for the weekend of March 4-6. "That's the goal," said Carter, West Deptford's senior 182-pound wrestler. Said Shields, the Eagles' 160-pound senior: "We've been planning that for a long time.

Marques DeShields broke more than tackles this past football season. He also shattered the perception of the Overbrook High School football program. "When I was in eighth grade, people were telling me I had to go to another school," DeShields said. "When I was a freshman, they were telling me I had to transfer. "I want to prove that a player could go to this school and play in this program and still get recruited at a high level. It feels good to prove those people wrong. " DeShields, a 5-foot-10, 185-pound junior running back who led South Jersey in touchdowns in 2015, picked up an offer from Temple a couple of weeks ago. The offer raised DeShields' profile and worked wonders for the Rams' program as well.

Philadelphia Media Network is fighting prosecutors' efforts to obtain documents that Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane is accused of illegally leaking to the Daily News in a bid to embarrass a political rival. Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele said he was seeking the documents given to reporter Chris Brennan, then with the Daily News, because he would like to conduct fingerprint and DNA testing on them. Michael A.

A Montgomery County judge has rejected an admitted killer's attempt to protect nearly $2.8 million in retirement assets from the estate of his slain wife. Rafael Robb, a former University of Pennsylvania professor who pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the beating death of his wife, Ellen Gregory, cannot benefit from his wife's death under the Pennsylvania Slayer's Act, County Court Judge Thomas M. Del Ricci wrote in the order, issued Tuesday. Gregory was planning to divorce Robb when he bludgeoned her with a metal bar in their Upper Merion home three days before Christmas in 2006.

"VIRGINIA ROSS started as a hugger," the Daily News' Ron Goldwyn wrote about her in 2001. Virginia visited hospitals "to hug and rock babies left behind by AIDS- and HIV-infected mothers," Goldwyn wrote. That kind of love and compassion for the sick and those "left behind" by sufferers marked Virginia's life of service to AIDS and HIV patients, as well as in education programs to call attention to the disease and ways to prevent its spread. Her particular emphasis was on the impact the dreaded disease has on the African-American community, where for many years it was a forbidden topic because of its association with homosexuality.

Adapted from a recent online discussion.   Question: How do I talk to my neighbor about the inappropriate movies her son is watching and their effect on my son? He tells my son about watching "cool movies" like Stripes, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and Groundhog Day. I think these movies are extremely inappropriate for a 10-year-old and have asked her son not to discuss them with my son. He's usually pretty good about this, but I've still heard him mention the movies.

Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said three weeks ago that if he were to handicap it, he envisioned Cole Hamels starting for the Phillies on opening day. The chances of that materializing increased Monday, when the Phillies lost one possible trade partner for their prized lefthander. Before they began the final week without baseball until November by agreeing to a deal with righthander James Shields, the San Diego Padres were one of the most speculated potential suitors for Hamels.

IT TAKES ONLY about 10 minutes for a citizen to let police know about a surveillance camera at home or at work that can be tapped for solving crime. The Philadelphia Police Department's SafeCam program, launched in 2011 as a tool to connect police with citizens who have private surveillance cameras on homes and businesses, has about 900 participants throughout the city. One West Philadelphia woman whose husband installed cameras at their Cedar Park home last year said that signing up for SafeCam has helped her form a relationship with detectives who work where she lives, and fostered her trust in the officers around her neighborhood.
