When Jiwan James' back thumped against the warning track, he looked to his right. There, he saw the baseball tucked into the palm of his hand. Out of breath and excited from the run and jump that preceded the fall, he tried to swallow as much air as he could. James, 23, of Williston, Fla., has dreamed of scaling an outfield wall and snagging a would-be home run since he was a child. But until the third inning Saturday, when his double-A Reading Phillies hosted the Bowie Baysox, the centerfielder had never robbed a home run outside of batting practice.

The Slinky, that spring thing that walks down stairs, was invented in Philadelphia nearly 60 years ago, but it still has surprises up its helical sleeve. And we're not talking new novelties à la the Slinky Dog or Slinky eyeballs. A Slinky amazingly "walks" on a treadmill for minutes, flopping and flipping along, even self-correcting its course, on a YouTube video that has been seen more than 3.3 million times in just two months. Now comes some cool slo-mo of another freaky trick — how a Slinky seems to momentarily hang in mid-air as if it has some anti-gravity power.

PUT JAY-Z on a Yamaha YZ-250, Kanye on a Kawasaki KX-125, or Lil Wayne on a little Honda, and they have nothing on Meek Mill, a Philly hip-hop artist who's risen from local mix-tape legend to next-big-thing, chasing his dreams to the top on one wheel.   "Any rapper, too, I'll bet any rapper you can't wheelie better than me," Mill says in a YouTube video , where he's mostly on a dirt bike. The Daily News tried to catch up with Mill, born Robert Rahmeek Williams, but we missed calls, traded texts and, for weeks, made plans that never panned out. He's as elusive as Philly's notorious and illegal dirt-bike riders, but any mention of the dirt bike/ATV scene would be remiss if it didn't mention him. Mill loves dirt bikes and ATVs.

The Cherry Hill teacher whose lawyers deny that she made the abusive statements to an autistic student heard on a now-viral YouTube video was placed on paid leave Friday. "I wanted to be proactive rather than reactive," superintendent Maureen Reusche said. "My primary focus is the instructional environment in the building. " Reusche said she hoped to minimize "disruption to our schools" since the identity of former Horace Mann Elementary School special-education teacher Kelly Altenburg was made public in a second YouTube video, released Wednesday by Stuart Chaifetz, the student's parent.

HARRISBURG - Two former prosecutors, both from eastern Pennsylvania, are locked in an unusually bitter primary battle for a chance to make history by becoming the first Democrat elected Pennsylvania attorney general. Both have also assailed a Republican who is not even on the ballot - Gov. Corbett. In the run-up to Tuesday's Democratic primary, Kathleen Kane and Patrick Murphy have waged a TV air war that went negative days ago as they crisscrossed the state in search of last-minute funding and support.

Spring means one thing: babies. My friend and I, plus my dog Pip, were enjoying an outdoor brunch at a restaurant and we were surrounded. Babies in sun hats strapped into strollers, babies hanging their chubby limbs from their Snuglis, babies gurgling on their parents' laps. The sidewalk was a baby parade. It was distracting. But not as distracting as the words vanilla buttermilk pancakes on the menu. My mouth had just begun to water when my friend cried out, "Omigod!

SAN FRANCISCO - A morbidly obese California man whose tearful, videotaped plea for help became a YouTube sensation may be getting the support he wanted. The "Dr. Phil" show reached out to Livermore resident Robert Gibbs, 23, after he posted his three-minute video last week. Gibbs mentioned the program in his clip, which has been viewed more than a million times and inspired dozens of responses from viewers offering diet tips and encouragement. A crew from the "Dr. Phil" show was scheduled to come to his house and film him today, Gibbs told the Associated Press.

The beating of a passenger on a NJ Transit River Line train while others casually watched and made a YouTube video of the incident shows too little has changed since the Kitty Genovese murder in 1964. An irate woman's assault on a two-timing boyfriend is not comparable to Genovese's being stabbed to death outside her Queens, N.Y., apartment. But just as no one came to Genovese's aid despite her screams, other passengers on the River Line train never made an attempt to stop what was in reality a crime.
