For $39,000 (plus tax and delivery charges), you can own the world. Well, you can own a replica of it. The geophysical globe, six feet in diameter and 500 pounds, was delivered yesterday to the new Rand McNally Map & Travel Store at One Liberty Place in Center City. A crew of six was needed to carry the globe and hoist it, hemisphere by hemisphere, into place, suspended from the ceiling. The store, Rand McNally's fifth, will be open to the public on Aug. 31.

This war is . . . the end of Europe, the end of the United States, the end of Serbia, and the end of Kosovo. But it is the beginning of the world. Why? This illegal war (because it was taken on without the United Nations) confirms the existence of a right in principle to intervene in cases of serious violations of human rights in any country. It is a first step in a process that is leading to the creation of a global police. We are living through the first war of globalization.

IN THE electric-blue state of Pennsylvania, I often find myself defending my limited support for President Bush. I wouldn't describe myself as a red-blooded conservative, though I have been known to strike an extremely conservative pose on some issues. But recently I have tired of defending a man mocked and criticized by blood-thirsty liberals who refuse to see anything but the worst. Perhaps, in one final attempt, someone might listen. It strikes me as odd that so many were ready to crucify Bush after his first term.

ASUMMER SOMETHING to rave about: The gorgeous arrangement of perennial flowers and ornamental grasses has graced the median of Spring Garden Street for nearly a decade, but this year the color is particularly arresting. The arrangement is part of the "public landscape" program of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society's Philadelphia Green, which since 1987 has worked with corporations, government and ordinary citizens to transform the public areas that mark visitors' entrances into the city.

DEAR ABBY: I am 32 years old and divorced my wife two years ago. Although I tried dating for a bit, it was a brave new world of online apps and profiles. It wasn't for me, and I became discouraged. A year has gone by, and female friends are telling me I need to get back out and date. I find the whole endeavor depressing and prefer to spend my time elsewhere and single. They say my decision to stay single is emotionally driven, that I "deserve love. " My argument against dating is that I wasn't a good husband, and I have no interest in devoting the time or energy to date in the scary and confusing world of the web. Can you settle this dispute so that we can stop the back-and-forth arguments?

You may be thrilled by the feats of swimmer Katie Ledecky, mesmerized by the grace of the women gymnasts, startled by Rio spectators mocking U.S. soccer star Hope Solo with chants of "Zika! Zika!" (the first recorded instance, noted one wit, of a stadium rocking to the invocation of a virus). Allow me, however, to interrupt the prepackaged, heart-tugging, tape-delayed Olympic coverage to bring you the real sporting news of the year. It has just been announced that on Nov. 11 in New York City, the World Chess Championship will begin.

BEVERLY HILLS - When A&E's Born This Way premiered in December , what I most liked about it was that it wasn't too, too special. As the mother of a young adult who, like the show's stars, happens to have Down syndrome, I'm not a big fan of special, which so often isn't. In playing themselves on television, these mostly twentysomethings were for once having an experience their more typical peers might envy. But Born This Way (10 p.m. Tuesdays, A&E), which returned for a second season on July 26 and whose three Emmy nominations include one for outstanding unstructured reality program, is special in some ways, and its differences, says executive producer Jonathan Murray, may make it a little more real than other shows of its genre.

A robo-adviser just for women? That's the latest step for Amanda Steinberg, the South Philly native who founded DailyWorth, a financial-advice newsletter with more than one million women subscribers. Last year, Steinberg expanded Chestnut Hill-based DailyWorth into financial advice and money management with the launch of WorthFM, which offers a pre-selected portfolio of eight exchange-traded funds. WorthFM is similar to robo-adviser start-ups such as Wealthfront or Betterment, with portfolios that are pre-selected and rebalanced automatically.

By Candy Schulman As a college writing professor with 30 years' experience, I was appalled to hear that Melania Trump plagiarized parts of her convention speech. Even more alarming: learning the following day that Trump's speechwriter admitted responsibility for lifting passages from Michelle Obama. But the most disconcerting aspect of the whole debacle is that when speechwriter Meredith McIver, an employee of the Trump Organization, volunteered to resign, she was turned down. She plagiarized.

The reality of regime change settled down over Broad and Pattison in South Philadelphia early Monday, and a wary anticipation filled partisans over what the fall would bring. Also, the Democrats began their national convention, right in Wells Fargo Center. But first things first in Packer Park, a neighborhood where the start of Eagles training camp - Monday at 8:40 a.m., just as Bernie campers were hanging their drenched comforters to dry - brought a more eye-popping than usual confluence of big shots and long shots.

There was a post the other day on Twitter - the most reliable source for news, information, and GIFs of swimming cats - that said a meteor would strike the earth this week and, assuming the two party conventions had not already done so, wipe out all intelligent life on the planet. We can debate exactly how large a meteor would be required to end intelligent life - I'd say one no more than the size of a grapefruit might get the job done - but that would put a crimp in summer cookouts and probably play havoc with Shore traffic.
