Ben Revere isn't like his teammate Jonathan Papelbon, who is openly trying to get out of town, but the Phillies outfielder understands that his address could be changing by the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. The 27-year-old Revere is hitting a team-leading .299 after going 2 for 4 Sunday in an 8-7 win over the Miami Marlins at Citizens Bank Park. Since June 3, he leads the majors with a .367 average. Revere is one Phillies trade commodity who has drawn interest. As the deadline moved closer, he was candid when asked before the game if he thinks about the possibility of being traded.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: I married the man of my dreams, only to return from our honeymoon to find that my twin sister has been secretly sleeping with my now brother-in-law. Problems have since arisen. (1) I'm upset my sister is sleeping with someone I now consider family, and for whom this is essentially just a booty call. (He won't even let her tell people they are friends, and tells everyone he doesn't even like her.) She keeps telling me he'll realize he actually loves her "one day. " (2)

A set of young twins entered my office as though they were there to be executed - silent and grim-faced. In fact, they were there merely for a psychological evaluation. And my office is bright and filled with toys - hardly a dungeon. Nonetheless, their mother had to drag them in. I couldn't make them laugh, smile, answer my questions - or even look at me. Their mother explained their strange silence was the main reason she had brought her twins to the appointment. Although they were "chatterboxes" at home, talking easily to both parents, other family members, and each other, they had never talked at their elementary school.

Kim Lewullis and Nikki Watts have a lot of things in common. They live on the same block in the same style house in Collegeville. They both teach at the YMCA. They both have three children. This makes sense because they were born minutes apart. They're twins. They do one more thing together, too: They run. On Monday, they'll run their second Boston Marathon. "We try to do all of our long runs together," said Lewullis, 40, who is older by two minutes. "Knowing that we're in this together provides strength and just peace of mind.

The astronaut Scott Kelly is about to take off for the International Space Station, and if he is like some space travelers, he may temporarily feel a bit foggy or disoriented once in orbit. Scientists have not had much luck measuring this subtle effect with standard cognitive tests, but now, a group of University of Pennsylvania researchers is trying a new tack. While Kelly is in space, they will compare his mental performance with that of a uniquely qualified individual who stays behind on Earth.

It was a typical game for the DePersia twins and the Haddonfield boys' basketball team. Nick DePersia was raining three-point jumpers. Rob DePersia was buzzing around the court, playing with "unmatched energy," according to coach Paul Wiedeman. It was all so familiar as the DePersia brothers led the way in host Haddonfield's 53-51 victory over Paulsboro in a Colonial Conference interdivision clash of Top 10 teams before a near-capacity crowd on a frigid Thursday night. But it also was something different.

Identical twins Deborah and Sandra "Sam" Fanelli have dual careers, both of which started in the kitchen. In the 1960s, they harmonized around the dinner table with their older brother, Leonard; later, as "the Fanelli Twins," they became stars of The Al Alberts Showcase on WPVI-TV. The statuesque pair - they were 5-foot-9 and classmates called them the "Jolly Green Giants" - went on to sing for 15 years in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, and the Catskills, where a crowd at the Concord once gave their Rocky -themed dance number a standing ovation.
