PRINCETON - It all feels so easy, looks so casual. But it sounds unlike anything. Roomful of Teeth, the vocal octet whose somewhat regular presence here Philadelphians should envy, seemed to be just dropping in at the McCarter Theatre Center for an 80-minute-or-so Sunday program that may have radically changed forever the way some listeners hear voices in concert. Far more inviting than alienating (as innovation can be on first encounter), this group founded by Brad Wells uses amplification - each singer has a microphone - to create intimacy with the audience, sometimes as though the voices are whispering in your ear. In a darkened auditorium with singers in everyday street clothes, there's almost a campfire effect.

THIS WEEKEND marked the beginning of the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup and the first chance for Sixers fans to watch 2014 first-round pick Dario Saric of Croatia on a large, international stage. The 12th-overall pick has impressed, as Croatia holds a 2-1 record in Group B of the tourney. Saric is averaging 27.3 minutes, 13.7 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 3.0 assists per contest in three tournament games while shooting 51.7 percent from the field. The skills that made Saric such an intriguing prospect to general manager Sam Hinkie have been on display: He is 6-10 and can play any position on the court due to his distributing abilities.

THIS IS A basketball accomplishment Craig "Poppy" Slade can sink his teeth into. Yes, all of them. That revelation might surprise the folks who saw Constitution, which now boasts a championship in only its third Public League season, battle Math, Civics and Sciences Charter in a quarterfinal back on Feb. 18. Two minutes before halftime, Slade planted himself in the lane at the north end of Southern High's gym and took a violent-contact, elbow-first...

EASTON, Pa. - An eastern Pennsylvania man has been sentenced to one to two years in prison after his teenage son tried to pull out his own teeth because he hadn't been taken to a dentist. Northampton County Judge Michael Koury Jr. said Friday that he only wished he could sentence 41-year-old Francisco Torres to more prison time. The judge said, "Neglecting one's child is the ultimate betrayal. " Torres pleaded guilty in October to recklessly endangering another person. He apologized in court.

An Easton, Pa., man was charged with endangering his 14-year-old son, who used pliers to yank two teeth from his mouth because his father would not take him to a dentist, police said Wednesday. For several months, Francisco Torres, 40, ignored his son's complaints about his teeth, said Detective Chris Miller. After his son pulled the teeth out in January, Torres allegedly still refused to take his son to a dentist. The teen eventually told someone about his problem and authorities were notified, Miller said.

EASTON, Pa. - A defense lawyer said an Easton man whose teenage son pulled out two of his own teeth with pliers because he had not received dental care would plead guilty to recklessly endangering another person. Francisco Torres, 41, waived his preliminary hearing Wednesday in Northampton County. Defense attorney Timothy Prendergast said that his client would plead guilty to reckless endangerment and that prosecutors would withdraw a charge of endangering the welfare of a child. Easton police said the teen had complained about dental pain for six months before pulling the teeth himself in January, prompting emergency surgery.

DEAR ABBY: When I was a young child/teenager, I never brushed my teeth. Because of it, the enamel on my teeth eroded and I have cavities, really bad ones. Add to that a desperate fear of dentists, and my teeth are in horrible shape now. When I smile, my front teeth are mostly black. I work in customer service. I'm too young to have awful teeth, and I'm ashamed. I saw a dentist recently and I have made appointments to have my dental issues addressed, but it's expensive and it won't be for a few months.

It is frequently said that, unfortunately, Americans disdain government. It is more usefully said that, unfortunately, they have abundant reasons for doing so. In the coming days, the Supreme Court, by deciding to hear a case from Connecticut, can begin limiting a contemptible government abuse that the court's passive deference to legislatures has encouraged. The case concerns a minor economic activity, teeth whitening, but a major principle: Can a state limit Americans' opportunities by restricting access to particular professions for no reason other than to promote the enrichment of people entrenched in those professions?

WHEREVER Imhotep senior offensive lineman Jahmir Johnson plays college football next season, the 6-5, 272-pound guard will likely have access to all the mouthpieces he could ever need. Two years ago, however, the absence of that protective piece made him temporarily walk away from what now looks to be a promising future. As an overzealous sophomore, Johnson forgot his mouth guard on his way to Imhotep's first offseason workout. "It was my first day, and I wasn't even thinking about it," he said.

When Penn State began the 2015 season, its most recognizable name on the defensive line was Anthony Zettel, a strong, fast and quick tackle who also was known for booming tee shots, tackling a tree and doing a spin kick of a water bottle that almost nailed a teammate. Since then, some of the team's other linemen have made their mark as well. Fifth-year senior and Malvern Prep graduate Carl Nassib, who started his first game at either the high school or college level last month, leads the nation in sacks.

Next, starting on his birthday July 16, he wants to lift a stranger with his teeth every day for a year (the liftee must lie down wearing a harness in order to be lifted about a foot off the ground)

Way back when, New Jersey was not the Garden State. It was the Kill or Be Killed State. And at the top of the heap was a fearsome creature called Mosasaurus , currently playing a memorable role in that new dinosaur flick you may have heard about. Mosasaurus was no dinosaur. It was a marine reptile, part of a broader family called the mosasaurs, in an era when much of New Jersey was underwater. While the toothy carnivores were common in much of the world, the first North American fossil specimens were found in New Jersey in the early 1800s, shaping our knowledge of prehistory well before anyone had a good idea what a dinosaur was. Fossil-hunters today continue to find mosasaur vertebrae and horror-movie teeth - some of them 5 inches long - at sites in Gloucester and Monmouth Counties.

Growing up in an orphanage in Haiti, Thomy Elusme brushed his teeth regularly and never got a cavity. Yet by his teenage years, a few teeth had started to become loose and one eventually fell out. After coming to New Jersey to live with a host family, the soft-spoken 20-year-old had to have a second one pulled. Elusme suffers from a condition all too familiar to periodontist Daniel H. Fine, who examined the young man last month at the Rutgers University School of Dental Medicine in Newark, N.J. For more than 30 years, Fine has been tackling the mystery of why, through no apparent fault of their own, up to 2 percent of black youths have loose teeth.

AFTER playing larger-than-life characters like Red, queen of the kitchen in "Orange Is the New Black," and Admiral Janeway in "Star Trek: Voyager," actress Kate Mulgrew has taken on a new challenge - telling her life's story in her book, Born With Teeth: A Memoir (Little, Brown & Co.). "I'll be 60 years old at the end of this month," Mulgrew said in an interview with the Daily News . "For 40 years, I've been playing other characters. I've enjoyed it. I've loved it. I've been seriously committed to it. But there comes a moment, when it comes, to step out as one's self.
