Richard Strauss' Intermezzo could be regarded as a forerunner of Hollywood's The Truman Show. In the opera Strauss serves up real life as theater, portraying himself, his wife and son in a domestic snapshot taken from a contretemps in their own lives. The staged work had never reached New York until Tuesday when the New York City Opera opened its English language production of the work. Like many new works this company presents, it had its first outing at the Glimmerglass Opera in Cooperstown, where the City Opera's general director, Paul Kellogg, produces in the summer.

Earlier this month, Pollock School had its picture day. Since that was my last class, it was my last picture day. I suppose I will always carry a snapshot of this class in my heart. Most of the year has been good. The children who came to first grade already knowing how to read have become even better readers. They are writing stories and poetry. They can make your heart sing with the thrill of watching them learn. There are the children who came to first grade with far fewer skills than the others but have also made tremendous strides.

Eighty-nine police officers were promoted to detective yesterday in a ceremony at the Civic Center. Afterward, new Detective Jihad Ali and Renee Ali posed for a snapshot by their son, Khalid, 7, as daughter Khalida, 10, watched. These were the first promotions in the Philadelphia Police Department in almost 3 1/2 years. They're the first of 200 or more promotions expected to go into effect by the end of the year.

WASHINGTON THEY WOULD RATHER POSE WITH GEORGE What could make a tourist in Washington happier than to have his family's picture taken with President Clinton? For one visitor to the nation's capital, a picture with former President George Bush. An unidentified tourist had his family's picture taken on the street outside the White House with Clinton, who was finishing his regular morning jog. After Clinton posed for a snapshot with the man's family members, who were beaming about their lucky encounter, he was asked by the White House press pool what could be better?

Remember when you were learning to drive, perhaps from Mom, Dad, or an older sibling? Chances are you were warned not to follow too close - "Don't tailgate!" - or to take other risks that might end with your slamming on the brakes to avert a crash. Your teacher may have also cautioned against driving in the wee hours, especially after the bars closed. What if you could install an electronic monitor to see if you - or your children - were still heeding all that sage advice, and reward you if you were?

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Pessimists and optimists can't agree on what constitutes emptiness and fullness. Maybe it's something you have to decide for yourself. Today you will. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A physical snapshot captures an image. A mental snapshot captures information. You will take a snapshot with your heart today and capture the entire feeling of a relationship. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll find beauty in humble scenes where nothing much is happening. If you can get others to be quiet and observant with you, they will be equally delighted.

The remote garage door opener is broken. One more morning hassle. Hard enough getting everyone ready. Before there was: Hurry up! Don't forget your lunch! Where are your shoes? Now there's something else to fuss about: Close the garage door . . . bang . . . carefully! Mornings seem to drain away my patience as quickly as the Eggos disappear. Evenings are sometimes no better. Nor are crowded commutes, poky supermarket checkout lines, or political candidates who take a very long time to say very little.

The encounter was an education for both men. Steve Latzo, a St. Joseph's University student, had never been inside a shelter for the homeless before. And the man, an ex-convict staying at the Pennsylvania Shelter, on Vine Street near 12th, had never told his life's story to a college student. Latzo, one of hundreds of city volunteers who surveyed the city's homeless yesterday as part of a first-ever statewide effort, went through the short but probing questionnaire with the man, who was forthcoming on all but his name.

The first image in the exhibition of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs set to open at the National Constitution Center on Friday bears an all-too-familiar intensity. A pair of Syrian snipers, holed up in a dim room, lasers of daylight streaming through bullet holes all around them, nervously watch for their next target. Javier Manzano, freelancing for Agence France-Presse, the photographer who captured the intimacy, anxiety, and strange beauty in this image, later said, "I didn't know it was a sniper's nest.

IT TURNS OUT that Eagles quarterback Michael Vick doesn't have really weird snacking habits after all. That opened box of Milk-Bones dog biscuits spotted in his recently tweeted photo belongs not to No. 7 but to the newest member of the Vick household - their dog. Yes, Michael Vick has a dog. Vick, who served time for his role in an illegal dogfighting ring that savagely murdered numerous animals, understands how that might strike dog-lovers....

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Seen or heard at the Television Critics Association's summer meetings, which wrap up Friday: > Men without socks. This turns out to be a particularly bad look for appearing at press conferences, distracting reporters from their usual attention to female panelists' absurdly high heels. The trend inspired enough Twitter fashion commentary that producer Greg Berlanti ("Political Animals") said after a session on his new CW superhero series "Arrow" that he'd made a point of wearing socks because he'd seen so many tweets about it.   > Russell Brand without shoes.

The pinpoint accuracy of the head count conducted every decade by the U.S. Census Bureau is impressive enough, but the agency's greatest insights may come from its annual surveys, which take the pulse of Americans on topics as varied as their income, commuting habits, and home-heating setup. Data gleaned from the yearly surveys provide businesses with critical information on their markets for products and services. A retailer, for instance, might use the findings to decide where to locate a new store; a manufacturer might determine the best site for a new factory.

Editor's Note: Chillin' Wit' is a regular feature of the Daily News spotlighting a name in the news away from the job. KAREN POLESIR stands in the kitchen in her cozy one-bedroom Ambler apartment, the kettle boiling for English tea, as her cat, Harley, sits perched on a chair at the table, a scrunchie around her neck, as if she's a toddler waiting for cake. "She's like a dog," says Polesir. "She loves hair ties. I throw them across the floor and she brings them back to me. " The name Harley seems more suited for a crazed pitbull, but here's how Polesir explains the name for her tortoise-shell cat with piercing, sea-green eyes who was abandoned on a doorstep: "She purrs like an engine.

She got distracted when stumbling upon a small document box. It was the attached note, scribbled in pencil, that caught the avid cook's eye. It said simply, "Recipe Book.

One way to gauge the health of small businesses is through statistics gathered by payroll companies. Automatic Data Processing Inc. provides a monthly look at hiring using data from a sample of 337,000 businesses to which it provides payroll services. The ADP National Employment report gets a lot of attention because it's released two days before the Bureau of Labor Statistics' official reading on those employed and unemployed. Last Wednesday, the ADP National Employment report indicated that employment increased 110,000 from September to October.

The description from police was chilling. Traveling as fast as 140 m.p.h. on a winding Chester County road, Ryan Dunn's sports car swerved and slid, jumped a guardrail, smashed into a tree, and exploded into flames last Monday. The star of MTV's Jackass died at the scene, as did his passenger, Zachary Hartwell. It was just before 3 a.m. on Route 322 in West Goshen Township. There were no witnesses or cameras. So how did the police know what happened? And know so quickly?

WASHINGTON - Relations between Venezuela and the United States sank so low in recent years that even a McDonald's combo meal and a two-for-one offer from Domino's Pizza were the subject of acrimony. The tale of the fast-food kerfuffle is one of a multitude of snapshots offered by U.S. diplomatic cables obtained by WikiLeaks and released to McClatchy Newspapers that shed light on steadily rising tensions between the United States and the government of fiery populist Hugo Chavez. Many of the snapshots are of singular events such as a tussle over a diplomatic pouch, the parsing of an insult by Chavez, and the travails of U.S. companies operating in Venezuela.
