At first glance, the YouTube video of a man berating a smaller man looks like a TV talk-show confrontation. But this video is of Gov. Christie, known for his blunt but calculated outbursts and big personality, speaking to a citizen who asked a question at a public meeting. The moment has raised questions about the governor's demeanor. What is not shown is that the man, Keith Chaudruc, of Madison, N.J., passionately asked how Christie could sunset a surtax on millionaires while allowing NJ Transit fares to go up, making life harder for the working class.

" In a letter sent home Tuesday, the principals of Harriton and Lower Merion High Schools termed the images "reprehensible and cause for great concern. " The video shows binge drinking, marijuana use, window smashing, and use of drugs and alcohol in cars by students purported to be from Lower Merion - all presented as a lark.

And you thought YouTube - the on-line video mall starring anybody - was just about teenagers lip-synching to Justin Timberlake. Oh, ye of little faith. One of the newest (and unlikeliest) faces to emerge on this new communications technology is a middle-aged churchman, talking about Lent. His name: Cardinal Justin Rigali, the Roman Catholic archbishop of Philadelphia. And his appearance on YouTube appears to be a first for any Catholic prelate. "Dear friends in Christ," he says softly, dressed in a black cassock and gazing into the camera.

Tuesday afternoon a waterspout was seen for about 10 minutes over Great Bay, between Atlantic County's Brigantine and Ocean County's Long Beach Island. The National Weather Service received accounts from three people on the ground and two aircraft, while various news reports showed a variety of photographs and a YouTube video. The waterspout, basically a tornado over water, formed at 4:37 p.m. during a severe thunderstorm. "There's really no damage to use to rate it, but it was probably on the weak side," said weather service meteorologist Patrick O'Hara.

Sabur, 29, was charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest and related offenses for allegedly assaulting Leocal and his partner, Donyul Williams, during a violent arrest in front of a Chinese takeout restaurant at Allison Street and Lansdowne Avenue.

What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours By Helen Oyeyemi Riverhead. 336 pp. $27 Reviewed by Tara Murtha   British writer Helen Oyeyemi writes stories the same way most people make paper snowflakes, carefully slicing out the parts she wants you to notice the most. Every story in the 30-year-old former wunderkind's latest literary offering is chiseled out of the same alphabet the rest of us are stuck with, but with a razor-sharp pen and a few twists and folds of reality, Oyeyemi crafts strange tales that at times border on sinister as they scissor in and out of contemporary reality.

This is a column about a beautiful Ukrainian helicopter pilot named Nadiya Savchenko, who was captured by pro-Russian rebels and illegally transported from her country to a prison in Moscow. She could die soon. It is also a column about lies so blatant, so contrary to available facts, that they insult the intelligence. Vladimir Putin and his spokesmen repeat such lies over and over about what Russia is doing in Ukraine. Yet Western leaders still refrain from denouncing them as falsehoods.

In a tribute that could be dreamed up only by a beer drinker, Californian James Nielsen pulled on his running shoes, headed to the track, stretched a few times . . . And cracked open a can of Budweiser . Make that four Buds. One for each lap of a quarter-mile track in Marin County. In an achievement that - even if it's not quite as historic as Bannister's - lit up YouTube and Facebook, Nielsen became the first man to run a sub-5-minute beer mile.

IT'S NO SECRET that a lot of legendary players have hooped it up at New York City playgrounds. On Wednesday, the documentary "Doin' it in the Park" opens in the Big Apple - a homage to the city's courts and players. As far as we know, no one has done a similar film about Philly, even though the city has a rich history of guys and girls who honed their skills in pickup games on asphalt courts. Players like (in no particular order), Wilt Chamberlain, Hank Gathers, Bo Kimble, Gene Banks, Bryant "Sad Eyes" Watson, Guy Rodgers, Earl Monroe, Walt Hazzard, Lewis "Black Magic" Lloyd, Aaron "AO" Owens, Randy Woods, Wali Jones, Lionel Simmons, Marilyn Stephens, Linda Page, Yolanda Laney and Debbie Lytle.
