Due to an unsettled offseason, the Big East Conference has finally released its 2012 football schedule. The conference had to deal with the departure of West Virginia before luring a former member that it had booted years earlier - Temple. For now, the Owls will have an 11-game schedule - including seven Big East foes - this coming season, with two bye weeks. That could change, as Temple is still looking to add a 12th opponent. So far, the Owls' schedule that was released on Tuesday is highlighted with games against Villanova, Penn State, Rutgers, Pittsburgh, Louisville and Cincinnati.

The people began forming a line at 4 p.m., an hour before the church doors swung open, and some were still there as late as 10:15, 75 minutes after the scheduled ending. That thousands, despite rainy, dreary weather, turned out last night at St. Alphonsus Church, in Maple Glen, Montgomery County, to honor C. Robert "Bob" Harrington was an occurrence that should have surprised no one. He meant that much to that many. Harrington, 55, who first made a name for himself as a basketball player and coach, and then enhanced it by becoming a giant in labor relations as a vice president for personnel services and chief negotiator at Temple University, all the while nurturing old friendships and starting new ones and caring for his beloved family, died last Thursday after battling cancer for close to four years.

ISSUE | PETER LIACOURAS Temple's redeemer The passing of former Temple University President Peter Liacouras marked the official end of an era ("Former Temple president Peter Liacouras dies," Philly.com, Friday). Liacouras saw his charter in a simple manner - to lead and manage Temple's transition - and this vision became a reality along Broad Street and in North Philadelphia. His years of work benefited Temple, the neighborhood, and the community, and as with Comcast cofounder Ralph Roberts, social activist the Rev. Leon Sullivan, and former Mayor Richardson Dilworth, his sense of uncompromising integrity raised the bar for all Philadelphians.

TEMPLE UNIVERSITY has asked a Canadian high school to stop using an owl mascot that looks very much like its own. Temple officials said Thursday that the school in Kelowna, British Columbia, has agreed to change its symbol. The Kelowna Daily Courier reported that the local high school's scowling bird was virtually identical to Temple's Hooter the Owl. Kelowna Secondary School began using the symbol in 2002, after Temple had trademarked its image. It's not clear how the mascots ended up looking alike.

Classical music for babies. Foreign language tapes for toddlers. Today's parents are trying all sorts of things to stimulate their children in the hopes of maximizing brain power in the critical period right after birth. But do experiences in the early years - listening to Mozart or not - really determine how a child fares in the long run? In his 1999 book, The Myth of the First Three Years: A New Understanding of Early Brain Development and Lifelong Learning, child-education expert John Bruer debunks the popular notion that the most important period of brain development occurs before the age of 3. Bruer, who heads the James S. McDonnell Foundation in St. Louis, will join a panel of Philadelphia experts to discuss the "zero-to-three" theory at a symposium next Monday from 1 to 3:30 p.m. at Temple University.

LAWYERS MIGHT HAVE one of the most joked-about jobs on Earth, but here in Philadelphia, they now are among the most celebrated: Temple University yesterday officially opened a national Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame. The hall was founded in 2009 by the Trial Lawyer magazine, but hasn't had a physical home until now. Its goal: to honor trial lawyers "who have left an indelible mark on the American legal tradition through a lifetime of service to the American public, the Constitution and the American trial bar," according to its website.

Working with Temple University officials, Philadelphia police took decisive action by charging four Temple students with the senseless beating of the grandson of a Holocaust survivor. The attackers reportedly shouted anti-Semitic slurs before pummeling the 23-year-old college student, a visitor to the North Broad Street campus who attends Penn State University. While the victim suffered a broken nose and orbital bone in his face, the hopeful news is that he is expected to recover fully, his father told a campus meeting on the attack late last week.

ISSUE | NORTH PHILA. Neighborly mosque Thanks to the Inquirer for writing about the mosque we are building north of Temple University ("Ahmadiyya mosque rising in N. Phila.," May 31). The story quoted residents who said they had been unaware of the project until construction began. We did conduct a community meeting at the Cookman United Methodist Church on April 15, 2010, to an overwhelmingly positive response, before construction began. The mosque will include a community center and soup kitchen in addition to teaching the peaceful principles of Islam.

Before there was Google, there was Arnold Sulby, whose encyclopedic knowledge and steel-trap memory settled many a bar bet and produced, nearly without fail, the answer to Final Jeopardy! Mr. Sulby, 80, of Bala Cynwyd, died Monday, June 6, at Bryn Mawr Hospital after a stroke. Beginning in the 1960s, as households of two working parents proliferated, Mr. Sulby became a crusading advocate for quality day care. He worked for the cause for four decades. He was "a Renaissance person," said his lifelong friend Harvey Finkle, a photojournalist, whose first photos materialized in a closet darkroom set up by Mr. Sulby.

Andrea Constand waited a year to tell anyone that Bill Cosby had sexually assaulted her, she said, because she was "emotionally shocked" and needed time to work through her feelings. "I want to say there was an element of fear," she told Cheltenham police in 2005. "Before I was going to say anything to anyone, I had to put my own thoughts and feelings together. " Detailed in a police interview transcript made public Thursday , Constand's reply addressed what has emerged as a critical point as Cosby's case lumbers toward a trial.

Joyce Xi doesn't want to see another family go through what hers has endured. That's why the daughter of the Temple University professor who was accused of spying for China, in charges that were then dropped, is demanding an apology from President Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch to her father and other Asian Americans wrongly charged. "I think it's important to have a public effort highlighting these injustices that my dad and others have faced, and also to be able to hold the government accountable," said Xi, 23, who graduated from Yale University on Monday with a degree in chemistry.

By Deena Cellini In the fall of 1986, I attended an open house at Temple University. I remember being greeted by the school's president, Peter Liacouras, who died on May 12 and whose memorial service was Thursday. The statement he made that struck me then and sticks with me to this day about the place I called home during the next four years was, "If you want to find and meet other people like you, people with similar interests and backgrounds, people who think the way you do ... go to Penn State.

In the last decade, a mountain of legal filings, headlines, and news conferences has been devoted to exploring what might have happened when Andrea Constand walked into Bill Cosby's home in Cheltenham one night in 2004. What has been missing, however, is Constand's own description of the encounter. On Tuesday, that could change. In a Norristown courtroom, prosecutors are scheduled to introduce evidence that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted Constand, as they ask a judge to order him to stand trial.
