As nose-to-tail cookery becomes more popular in Philadelphia kitchens, chefs are left with a new challenge: What to do with the hide? "If you are going to use animal products, you have to be responsible and use the whole thing," says chef Andrew Wood of Russet restaurant in Center City, summarizing the philosophy behind whole-animal cooking. Wood has put pork, chicken, and goose skin on his menu, one of many local toques incorporating animal skins into their dishes in appealing, unexpected ways.

ON DEC. 20 your paper ran a story about Mary Blige and in true cowardice fashion never mentioned statements that she made in connection with her new musical release that were mentioned in other media outlets. Blige stated she is a happier person than she was, but she doesn't think America's changed at all when it comes to race relations. "The blacker you are, the worse it is for you. If you're mixed, you've got a shot. If you cater to what white America wants you to do and how they want you to look, you can survive.

Joe Strummer's punk rock takes an odd but mesmerizing detour on the Clash song "Lose This Skin" (from the 1980 classic Sandinista! ) with wailing violins and the croaky vocals of Tymon Dogg. So when longtime Clash fans Brendan Hartranft, Leigh Maida, and Brendan Kelly decided to take a little detour at Coeur from their usual focus on beer, they had the perfect name for a new house cider and a collaborator with its own kind of wild yeast croak: Bullfrog. The Williamsport brewery was one of the first in Pennsylvania to work with brettanomyces, a natural wild yeast that lends Bullfrog's beers and ciders a tart smack and terroir funk.

The plate at the restaurant in Beijing was laden with thin, yellowish sheets made from soybeans, called tofu skin. Peter Lelkes used them as the chef intended, to wrap vegetables into bite-size morsels. But as he ate, the biomedical engineer's thoughts strayed from the Chinese restaurant to his lab in Philadelphia. The tofu-based "skin," he realized, made him think of the real thing. A decade later, that chance encounter in a Chinese restaurant has led to a soy-based "skin substitute" - a wound dressing that a start-up company has licensed for use on diabetic ulcers, burns, and other injuries the body cannot readily heal on its own. Lelkes and his Temple University colleagues say the product has shown promise in animal studies, and the company, Eqalix in Reston, Va., is raising money to seek FDA approval.

Because of my skin I counted myself out of any of those jobs - salesman, teacher, financier, movie star - that demand being presentable. Why did I marry so young? Because, having once found a comely female who forgave me my skin, I dared not risk losing her and trying to find another. - John Updike on psoriasis in "At War with My Skin" from "Self-Consciousness: Memoirs" (1989) As a child I would muse - mostly in admiration, some in dread - on how much my mother must love my father to hold his head so gently under the kitchen faucet, washing his poor inflamed, scaley scalp with some special vile shampoo.

A mother's love knows no bounds - and more than ever, that includes sacrificing some skin. Ask Michelle Waldron Rollman. The banking financial specialist recently got a $60 tattoo on the inside of her left wrist - the word "KaLaSa" in an elegant font that combines the first two letters of each of her three daughters' names, Kathleen, Lauren, and Sarah. KaLaSa reflects "the love I have for my children," said Rollman, 50, who lives in West Goshen and got her only other tattoo 15 years ago, a small shamrock on her ankle.

ARE YOU sure that your policy of one published letter every two weeks is enforced? Professional letter writers Abe Krieger, Tom Lutek and Donna Di Giacomo all grace your paper seemingly every day. I've even spotted Abe published in the New York Post. Why don't you just give all three of them their own column so people can complain about them instead of Malkin and Smerconish for a change. I mean, you give space to "Single Girl" Lauren so I can read about her travails ordering Chinese food and other hardships, so why not increase the wasted space in your diminishing paper.

It took 17 holes, but the 6,530 who paid $28 or $35 to sample the inaugural Exelon Invitational at Wyncote Golf Club finally got what they came to see - a snapshot moment by golf's new golden boy, 19-year-old Sergio Garcia. Until then, he'd been shut out yesterday. Couldn't buy a putt all afternoon. Two holes earlier, with an opportunity to win $40,000 in the skins-game format, his 10-foot birdie attempt slid just past the cup. Now, at the next-to-last hole, a 379-yard par-4, the precocious Spaniard left his approach shot about seven feet short of the pin and waited for everyone else to miss.

A young man knocked back a swig of cold beer and offered up a muscled bicep to a beefy guy with a tuft of oil-slicked, brown-blond hair. A haze of Marlboro cigarette smoke clung in the cool night air. The roar of a baseball game came from a television set in the back. And the city's night noises crept into this North Philadelphia shop in the 3200 block of Kensington Avenue's old, crammed business strip under the El tracks. Hunkering down over the arm, tattoo artist Philadelphia Eddie went to work.

Summertime means outdoor fun in the sun. But that can lead to painful sunburn - or worse. Melanoma rates have tripled over the past three decades, according to the National Cancer Institute. Using a good sunscreen can help protect skin from exposure to harmful ultraviolet rays. But with about 750 sunscreens on the market, the choices are daunting. The Environmental Working Group's (EWG) annual sunscreen guide is at ewg.org/sunscreen. Here's an FAQ: How much should I use?

A tattoo can be removed by physician - a dermatologist or a cosmetic surgeon - or a technician at a salon that specializes in the procedure. The choice, however, may not be simple. Doctors are wary of the new wave of salons, while salon owners insist they offer a more affordable alternative that is still safe. "Removing a tattoo is a medical procedure," said Eric Bernstein, director of the Main Line Center for Laser Surgery in Ardmore. "It's more complicated than it looks, and the lasers can be very dangerous.

Rihanna is a drama queen. And that's fine. More than any female artist since Madonna in her Sex prime (that's NOT to say the now-older Madonna can't be in any prime at present, just that her newer material stinks), Rihanna has turned skin, sensuality and seduction into theater. Bouncing back-and-forth from dominatrix to waif, from zipless aggressor to detached femme-fatale to tender quarry, the 28-year-old seems to toy with her own mythology for sport and profit. The drama of her life beyond music is what drives RiRi's spectacular ANTI tour, which brought her to the Wells Fargo Center Sunday night.

ED STEIN, Jim Whitehead, and Chris Trakimas had this year's hunting and fishing trips all figured out. As always, the longtime friends and skilled outdoorsmen would track deer in January and February. Hunt wild turkey in spring. Catch flounder and striped bass over the summer. Together, they'd clean and skin their bounty, but only Trakimas would whip it into meals they'd savor for hours in a small hunting cabin in Pike County, Pa., where locals have affectionately dubbed the men "the three amigos.

Q. What causes bedsores, and how can they be prevented? A. Although bedsores (also called pressure ulcers) can sometimes be caused by negligent providers, they do develop even in those with appropriate care. They are caused by excessive pressure on a bony area such as the heel or tailbone. In many cases, these can be prevented by making sure someone who is confined to bed is turned with assistance; has the skin cleaned regularly; and consumes enough protein to create collagen, which promotes skin integrity.

LANDOVER, Md. - This gaffe was not as egregious as the one DeSean Jackson made as a rookie wide receiver for the Eagles in 2008. Jackson lost what would have been his first NFL touchdown when he celebrated too early and flipped the ball behind him at the 1-yard line. After a challenge by the Dallas Cowboys, what was initially called a touchdown was overturned. It was an embarrassing lesson for Jackson but not costly to the Eagles because they scored a touchdown on the next play.
