A SPECIAL DEVICE women use to rock the little man in their boat may also be used to clear up that frog in your throat, according to a Canadian scholar who spoke yesterday in Philadelphia. The University of Alberta drama professor David Ley was in town to present his findings to The Voice Foundation's 42nd Annual symposium at The Westin. Ley, a spoken-word vocal coach, said two years ago he was working with an actress friend who had overworked her vocal cords after coming down with laryngitis a month prior.

Nearly 15 months after the inauguration of Amtrak's Philadelphia-to- Atlantic City train service, some residents living along the South Jersey right-of-way are still asking themselves a question. Could vibrations from rail-bed tamping during construction of the Amtrak/NJ Transit line have cracked the foundations of homes? In an effort to find out, Remington & Vernick, engineers based in Haddonfield, this month will be contacting people who have complained to arrange visual inspections.

A Municipal Court judge yesterday refused to impose fines or other sanctions against a factory that the city's environmental inspectors found to be violating a local ordinance designed to limit irritating and property-damag ing vibrations in neighboring homes. In rendering his decision, Judge Alexander Macones did not discuss the ordinance, passed by City Council in 1982, that limits environmental vibrations from industrial sites to no more than 0.2 inches per second. Instead, Macones ruled that the company, C.A. Spalding, a military subcontractor at Tulip and Venango Streets in the city's Richmond section, should not be fined because its property is zoned industrial, and because the company provides jobs for 215 people.

Gloria Gaither-Coles has a nagging fear that her house will fall down. She is not paranoid, nor has she been spooked by the recent earthquake in Northern California. Her fear is well-founded. Gaither-Coles lives in an old-fashioned, all-masonry house in the 400 block of North Five Points Road in West Goshen Township. Her front door is less than 100 feet from the West Chester bypass of Route 202. "From 6 to 8:30 in the morning and 4 to 6 in the evening it's like a raceway," said Gaither-Coles, a retired science teacher.

For the most part, the city Water Department is just happy with a relatively clean Schuylkill. But tomorrow, clean will be augmented by some New Age good vibes. At 1 p.m., the Fairmount Water Works, where the department's educational center is located, will serve as site for the "World Day of Love and Thanks to Water," an annual rite promoted by Masaru Emoto. A Japanese-based researcher and photographer, Emoto believes that concentrated thought and soothing words change the molecular structure of water.

Q: I'm a 48-year-old woman who's been married to the same man for 30 years. We have always had a great sex life. The problem is, he has walked in on me while I was masturbating a couple times in the past month. I have done so almost my whole life. Now he does not want sex. He feels he "is not enough" for me since I have to use a vibrator. That couldn't be further from the truth. What can I do to change his mind? Mia: Sounds as if your hubby thinks he doesn't measure up to your Pocket Rocket.

Tinicum Township residents have asked the Board of Commissioners for some relief from the noise and vibrations created by auto carriers that travel Route 291 daily. "The noise and vibrations from the trucks are so bad that our windows are shaking in their frames," Linn Bramble, of 209 N. Governor Printz Blvd., said at Monday night's meeting. "We're also having problems with our walls because of the vibrations. We want the trucks out of here. " Some of the car-carrying trucks are loaded in Chichester and refueled and maintained at a depot at Fourth Avenue and Seminole Street in Lester, according to Adam German Jr., board vice president.

Let's do The Time Warp again: They came from all over yesterday to soak up the perennially good vibrations and good-day sunshine of the '60s. The 1993 Be-In at Cooper River Park drew several thousand to Pennsauken, where they blasted back in time to the tunes of Eric Burdon (left) and Brian Auger. The 8th annual WYSP-FM music festival was sponsored by the Camden County freeholders.

Florence Duzinski explained it all again yesterday to the city Board of Health. "The bed vibrates. The floor vibrates," she said, describing the shaking at her Port Richmond rowhome. " . . . It's like an earthquake. It rumbles along. " The Board of Health was not the first forum to hear the story of Florence Duzinski's shaking house. But members listened intently as the widow from Weikel Street near Venango outlined her case against a factory in her neighborhood that stamps out parts for missile casings.

A little more than two years after 9/11, I went to a meeting of folks looking to promote Muslim-Jewish reconciliation. The December night was cold, icy, and wet, and the mosque where we met, which had been a tire factory, still looked like one, complete with a rubble-strewn parking lot. I suppose there were about six or eight of us there, not really sure where to go or what we were going to do; a lot was made up as we went along. It was as grassroots a movement as you will ever find.

Q: No matter what I do in bed, my girlfriend's never satisfied. I've tried all kinds of stuff. She just lays there looking bored afterward. Sometimes, she even reaches for a vibrator. I've tried talking with her about it, but nothing works. Before we moved in together, we couldn't keep our hands off one another. We did it a couple times a week. Now when we have sex, it's like she's doing me a favor. Then she reaches for that thing again. It's not like I'm one of those guys who just takes.

DAVE MALMAN doesn't have a girlfriend right now, but the 22-year-old eager beaver from Glen Mills was one of the first in line for "Free Vibrator Day" yesterday at the Feminique sexuality boutique in West Chester.

Thankfully, the promised inflatable rat courtesy of Philadelphia's IATSE Local 8 stagehands' union didn't show up at Saturday night's Erykah Badu show at the Electric Factory. Last week, Local 8 claimed on its Facebook page that Electric Factory's stagehands were underpaid, and that neither audience members nor Badu should cross their line. Yet there was no trouble at the Factory (and no indication whether the issue was resolved); only a sold-out crowd roused by the good vibrations of a woman who, in 1997, released two albums - Baduizm, Live - that midwifed the then-burgeoning new music brand of neo-soul.

NEW YORK - Stocks rose Monday as investors were encouraged by signs of progress in budget talks in Washington. Just two weeks remain before tax increases and spending cuts take effect if no deal is reached. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 100.38 points to 13,235.39, its biggest gain this month. The Standard & Poor's 500 index climbed 16.78 points to 1,430.36, and the Nasdaq composite index rose 39.27 points to 3,010.60. Marc Chaikin, chief executive officer of the Philadelphia-based market-research firm Chaikin Analytics, said investors became more hopeful for a resolution in the budget talks after House Speaker John A. Boehner made an offer to increase tax rates on high-income Americans.

The play is a farce set in the 1880s. Electricity is in its infancy, and doctors have a new tool for treating women diagnosed with "hysteria" - the vibrator. Hence the title of Sarah Ruhl's In the Next Room, or the Vibrator Play , at the Wilma Theater through April 3. And in the very next room indeed - the Wilma's lobby - there's a display of vintage vibrators provided by Kali Morgan of Sexploratorium on South Fifth Street. Like washing machines and irons, vibrators were pitched to housewives as "Aids that Every Woman Appreciates," according to a 1918 Sears catalog ad reproduced in the production's playbill.
