Services are planned for Saturday, June 18, for Thomas B.K. Ringe Jr., 88, of Berwyn, a former Navy pilot, lawyer, and businessman. He died Saturday, April 9, from complications of pneumonia at Paoli Hospital. Mr. Ringe became an associate at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius in Philadelphia after graduating in 1956 from the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Two years later, he broke away to form the Center City law firm of Ringe, Peet & Mason, and he continued to practice general corporate law until the mid-1970s, when he cofounded Meditel Inc., one of the first companies to attempt to use computers in medical diagnosis.

Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer and Ireland-based Allergan scrapped their merger plans Wednesday, two days after the Treasury Department announced tough new rules to thwart U.S. companies' moving their headquarters overseas to lower their taxes. The $160 billion deal would have been the biggest acquisition in drug industry history and would have created the largest pharmaceutical company in the world. The new Treasury Department rules make it harder for companies, through a merger, to move their tax addresses out of the United States and then shift profits to low-tax countries, a process called inversion.

Makes 4 half-pint jars; 32 ounces total 10 lemons 4 cups water 3 cups sugar 1. Use a vegetable peeler or channel knife to zest 4 of the lemons. (You don't have to be too careful about the amount of pith.) 2. Bring the water to a boil in a large, wide pot over high heat, then add all the lemons, including the zested ones, and the strips of lemon peel. (Depending on the size of your pot, you might have to do this in batches; the fruit must be submerged.) Cook for 2 minutes, then transfer the lemons to a bowl to cool.

When I saw chef Tal Ronnen's butternut squash farinata in his gorgeous new book, Crossroads , I followed his lead and cooked small cubes of the squash first, then poured the batter over them before baking. The result reminded me a little of a Spanish potato-egg tortilla. Butternut Squash Farinata 8 servings   11/2 to 2 cups chickpea flour 2 cups water, preferably filtered, at room temperature 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more as needed 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, more as needed 1 tablespoon vegan butter (or sub unsalted butter)

Brittany Jordan was so excited that she was ready to burst when I arrived for cooking class at Roberto Clemente Middle School last week. "I made the chicken for my family!" she exclaimed. "It was so good! My mom was so proud," she beamed, as she pulled up a beautiful photo of nicely browned chicken drumsticks on her cellphone. "Oh, Brittany, I am so excited for you!" I said. The aspiring cook had used the marinade recipe for the honey mustard chicken wings we made in class, but adapted it, using it on drumsticks instead of wings.

More than a quarter-century ago, U.S. squash little resembled the game played almost everywhere else. The courts here were narrower, the balls springier, the styles and strategies uniquely American. Then in the 1990s, the sport, whose U.S. roots run deep in Philadelphia, adopted international standards and America was forced to play catch-up. The subsequent transition, slow and costly, helps explain why at this week's 2014 U.S. Open, being contested at Drexel University's Daskalakis Athletic Center, no U.S. men or women reached the round of 16. While Egyptians, British and Malaysian players continue to dominate, a broadening of the once-clubby game's appeal here and a push by its U.S. leaders to identify and support young talent might soon lead to a new world order.

On a recent rush-hour Market-Frankford train, a woman lugging a large bag settled into a spot just inside the doorway - or, more precisely, blocking it. As the next stop approached, a man yelled "Coming through!" and tried to squeeze by. She suggested he wait his turn; he suggested she calm down. Bickering ensued. SEPTA ridership is up, but, given scenes like this, some would say common courtesy is not keeping pace. Passengers who a decade ago might have had a couple of seats to themselves are now being packed in more tightly than ever.

A MAN WHOSE squashed arrest sparked a municipal-corruption probe has sued the city, Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey and the officers who subdued him, claiming two beat him until he was "nearly unconscious" and wounded him so badly that he required "several dozen" stitches. Rodney Handy Jr., now 24, says police used excessive force, racially profiled him and retaliated against him when he questioned why they stopped him on March 19, 2012, as he parked his car outside his Oak Lane home after work.
