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.

Lower Merion school officials are warning parents about an outfit that posted a YouTube video of local high school and college students engaging in what appears to be underage drinking and illegal drug use under the name "I'm Shmacked. " 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.

Targets of poaching and victimized by a lack of prey, as few as 3,500 snow leopards roam the entire world. For zoophiles, it's a familiar battle – a struggle to save the endangered species one new cub at a time. Or, in Philadelphia's case, two at a time. In a first, two snow leopard cubs have been born at the Philadelphia Zoo, officials announced Wednesday. "They're precious, precious, precious children," said Tammy Schmidt, the zoo's curator of carnivores. "It's an honor for us as a zoo when it's an endangered species.

Jon Hauptman started an unusual business — holster making — about a year ago in a most unorthodox way: He disclosed virtually all his trade secrets in one YouTube video after another, after another. In some, he did something else seemingly self-destructive: He encouraged viewers to make their own holsters, if they were so inclined. What followed was not a crash-and-burn of Hauptman's start-up, but a groundswell of support from those who watched his videos and were moved to help him get PHLSTER off the ground.

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.

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.

A WHOLE LOT of folks think it's cute to see young children twerking and singing along to sexually suggestive songs. They laugh. Maybe post a YouTube video of it. Not two-time Grammy winner Carvin G. "Ransum" Haggins. After visiting a beauty salon in the Philly burbs earlier this spring and watching a 2-year-old girl mimicking Beyonce's provocative dance moves and singing the very adult lyrics to "Drunk in Love," Haggins got fed up and launched a grassroots campaign called Rage Against the Ratchet.

SIXTY YEARS ago this week, Englishman Roger Bannister ran the first sub-4-minute mile. 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.

Advertisers used to wait till Super Bowl Sunday to unveil their TV ads. More and more, some jump the gun to justify the king's ransom for a 30-second spot - $4 million this year - by capitalizing on every bit of media hype and advance Internet traffic they can generate, often by using some kind of contest tie-in. Some, like Anheuser-Busch, use the news and social media to build anticipation for spots you'll have to wait till Sunday to see. The beermaker even issued its first-ever tweet to ask folks to suggest names for a recently born Clydesdale , star of an ad called "Brotherhood.

UP OFF THE FLOOR, then. A splash of cold water on the face and away we go. Chip Kelly is the new coach of the Eagles. The Gus Bus has left town, replaced by what Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie believes will be the laser-quick offense of the future. You know it took a big bag of money to pry Kelly away from the clutches of the University of Phil Knight. So this is where the Eagles-are-cheap narrative goes to die an overdue, deserved death. You know, too, that the Eagles are not settling here, and that they did not bungle their search, and that pretty much everything said and written in the last week about this process has been conversation in search of reality.

IF "INNOCENCE OF MUSLIMS" sweeps the Razzies next year, can we all stop talking about it like it's a serious cinematic event? Is every crackpot with access to YouTube now going to become a target of insecure political regimes? On Wednesday, an Egyptian court convicted in absentia seven Egyptian Coptic Christians and a Florida-based American pastor, sentencing them to death - that's right, to death - on charges linked to the anti-Islam film that had sparked riots in parts of the Muslim world.
