Mention flash photography and most people cite Weegee's shocking and seemingly prescient tabloid assaults of the 1930s and 1940s, or Andy Warhol's friendlier Polaroid documents of his social encounters several decades later. But, as the Philadelphia Museum of Art's "Artificial Light: Flash Photography in the Twentieth Century" reminds us, most of the 20th-century photographers we know about have used the flash or strobe light at one time or another, in some cases exclusively. The 69 prints that project assistant curator Amanda Bock has culled from the museum's collection offer proof of the ubiquity of the flash; they also emphasize the multiple diverse effects photographers have been able to achieve through its use. Berenice Abbott, famed as the documenter of New York's architecture in the 1930s, used the flash in her later scientific experiments for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Physical Science Study Committee.

WASHINGTON - When the smoke cleared from congressional primary season, women had taken one step forward in New Jersey, and one back in Pennsylvania. The result: Come January, two states with a combined 34 seats in the Senate and House will likely include just one or, at most, two women. "It's pathetic," Julie Roginsky, a New Jersey Democratic consultant, said of her party's failure to elect a Garden State woman to Congress since 1976. That drought is likely to end in November, thanks to the results of Tuesday's primaries.

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. - As the U.S. Opens approach, things could hardly be better for the ladies of golf. The United States has charged back atop the LPGA roster even as the tour becomes more global and its footprint in the United States becomes larger. Americans have won nine of the 13 tournaments this season, including Stacy Lewis' second win of the season, yesterday, when she won the ShopRite LPGA Classic and overtook Korean star Inbee Park as the No. 1 women's golfer in the Rolex Rankings.

ONE MAN, who is "getting more and more violent," may be responsible for three recent sexual assaults of women in the Mayfair and Castor sections of Northeast Philadelphia, police said yesterday. In the three cases, from April 25 to Wednesday, each victim described the attacker as a man in his mid-20s, about 6 feet tall, thin to medium build and wearing a dark, hooded sweatshirt, Capt. John Darby said at a news conference at the Special Victims Unit. The first two women reported that a sharp object was held to their necks, Darby said.

After C. Neill Epperson, a psychiatrist who directs the Penn Center for Women's Behavioral Wellness, listened to many patients complain about their brains as they approached and entered menopause, she had an idea. Women would tell her that they couldn't juggle as much as they used to. They had to write something down instantly or the thought would disappear. They felt foggy and disorganized. Some worried that they had dementia. The symptoms didn't sound like dementia to Epperson, but they did sound like something else: attention deficit disorder.

Shortly after the members of the Penn women's lacrosse team walked off the field following a sound beating (12-6) by Virginia in the first round of last year's NCAA tournament, coach Karin Corbett delivered the same message to her despondent players that she had given them all season. "We were sloppy all season long, and it finally caught up to us against a very good ACC team," Corbett said. "We were young last season, and every time we talked about cleaning up our game, the girls were kind of like, 'Yeah, whatever.' "Looking back," the Quakers coach continued, "that might have been the best thing that could have happened to us. All season long I didn't have to spend too much time on that.

John Pieper could have taken the safe choice out of high school and attended Air Force, but there was something intriguing about Drexel and its fledgling rowing program. "They'd only had their varsity program for a couple of years," Pieper, now a senior with the Dragons, said Thursday. "They had no big titles, no big names in rowing. In one sense, it definitely was a gamble choosing Drexel. But what I saw was a young team that had a lot of passion behind it. The athletic department was putting a lot of time, energy, money, and resources into the program.
