Delco man charged with DUI in pedestrian hit-and-run A 20-year-old Delaware County man has been charged with driving under the influence in a pedestrian crash at 54th Street and Woodland Avenue Wednesday morning, officials said. Justin Popelak, of Lester, was apprehended at 58th Street and Grays Ferry by police. Police said Popelak’s 2012 Honda Civic hit a yet unidentified pedestrian who was crossing at the intersection. Popelak was speeding, police said. The driver and front-seat passenger fled on foot but the backseat passenger stayed at the location. Popelak was also charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and other offenses. The pedestrian remains in critical condition with a compound leg fracture at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. METRO

Standoff. Land bank bill could pass City Council this morning A debate between Council President Darrell Clarke and Councilwoman Maria QuinonesSanchez is creating concerns on whether the Philly Land Bank legislation, which would start a clearinghouse for the 10,000 pieces of cityowned vacant land, can pass before the new year.

Michael Giansiracusa, of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Ardmore. “Let us resolve in our memory, to make fewer compromises with principle in the name of expediency, and to live less for ourselves, and more for others,” wrote Anne’s father, Jay. “What more Malpractice

As residents slowly descended upon the corner, clergy members backed up to the chain-linked fence and led the group in song: “This little light of mine,” the group, linked hand in hand, chorused above the SEPTA announcements and roar of early-evening traffic. “I’m going to let it shine.”

Protests today for increased fast-food wages $15 an hour. That’s what BK, McD’s, and Wendy’s employees will demand at planned strikes across US. As part of a nationally coordinated series of demonstrations for higher pay, fast-food workers demanding a raise to $15/hour will rally Thursday in Wilmington and Philadelphia, as well as in an estimated 100 other cities. Camille Collins, 33, a mother of two, has worked at McDonald’s in Wilmington for a year as a crew trainer and earns $7.70 an hour, while finishing her bachelor’s degree at Wilmington University. She said that due to having a criminal record, she was told she

would never be eligible for a promotion there. Collins will be participating in demonstrations for higher wages outside Wendy’s, Burger King and McDonald’s on the Concord Pike in Wilmington beginning around 9 a.m. “I’m just hoping that McDonald’s corporation can take a real look at what’s going on. This is injustice. We need an affordable living wage,” Collins said. Clara Hendrickson, leader of the University of Pennsylvania chapter of United Students Against Sweatshops, is planning a solidarity action outside the McDonald’s at 40th and Walnut streets in West Philadelphia at 8 p.m. Twenty to 30 people will march and picket there for higher wages. “I feel there might be some general unawareness

A teacher calmly explains she has been shot in the foot. Another woman, sounding anguished, pleads for help. A custodian relays information from officers at the scene to a police operator. There is also the booming echo of gunshots. Officials in Newtown, Conn., on Wednesday released audio recordings of emergency 911 phone calls from the Connecticut school shooting that killed 20 children and six educators almost a year ago, revealing raw emotion in the voice of the callers. The audio files may be the final pieces of evidence released about the tragedy

that rocked the country on Dec. 14, 2012, when gunman Adam Lanza, 20, shot dead his mother at home and then went to Sandy Hook Elementary school, where he massacred 26 people before killing himself. Town officials initially tried to prevent the release of the recordings. The state Freedom of Information Commission ordered calls placed from inside the elementary school to be aired. Late last month, a judge ruled the town must comply with the commission’s order, and Newtown officials have since dropped their appeal. First Selectman Patricia Llodra recently reversed her long-standing position, saying the tapes should be released in full in order to prevent partial leaks. REUTERS

US teens chasing scarce jobs boosted by state programs Skills. Organizations are using public and private money to mentor teens. Eduardo Bueno landed a job as a hotel bell man in New York this year after finishing a youth employment program that let the 18-year-old practice interviewing and overcome a nervous stutter. With his first full-time position, Bueno said he can help his mother financially and plans to start taking college classes. “My

main dream is to get my bachelor’s in hospitality management and become a general manager someday,” said Bueno, who is from New York’s Lower East Side. Like all businesses in New York state, the Holiday Inn where Bueno works is eligible to receive a tax credit for students between ages 16 and 19 on the payroll. Approved earlier this year to help offset a minimum-wage increase, the policy is designed to spur hiring of teenagers and prevent further decline in their employment levels. BLOOMBERG

Rough road

Obama says income disparity is a defining issue of our era President Barack Obama, setting out a theme that he’ll pursue in the final years of his presidency, said growing income disparity in

the U.S. is the “defining challenge or our time” and Washington must confront it. Upward mobility for middle-income Americans has been stymied by economic changes and government policy, Obama said. “The basic bargain at the heart of our

economy has frayed,” he said in an address in Washington today that echoed a speech he gave two years ago in Osawatomie, Kansas, that set the stage for his 2012 re-election race. Increasing inequality “challenges the very essence of who we are as a people.” BLOOMBERG

More than 50 percent of respondents in the survey, taken between Oct. 30 and Nov. 11, said they disapproved of how the Democratic president handled key issues in his

second term, including Syria, Iran, the economy, health care and the federal budget deficit. Still, disapproval ratings were higher for both Republicans and Democrats in Congress. And a plurality of respondents, 46 percent, said they would still vote for Obama for president if they could recast their 2012 ballots, compared with 35 percent who said they would vote for the then-Republican nominee, Mitt Romney.

Rocket fire kills 17 in Syrian city of Aleppo

Mexican police find lost truck with radioactive material

Rockets fired into a government-controlled district of Aleppo killed at least 17 people in the northern Syrian city on Wednesday, state media and a monitoring group said. Photographs from the incident in Meridien and Furqan, two adjacent neighborhoods in western Aleppo, showed pools of blood on the pavements and a crater in the road where one of the rockets appeared to have landed. The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the casualties included nine civilians and five members of President Bashar al-Assad’s security forces. It put the death toll at 18, one more than reported by the state news agency.

Mexican police have found a truck they suspect was stolen by common thieves. It carried a dangerous radioactive medical material that the United Nations said could provide an ingredient for a “dirty bomb,” a government official said. The truck was found Wednesday close to where it was stolen outside of Mexico City, said the official, who asked not to be identified. He could not confirm whether the cargo was aboard. The truck was stolen Monday while it was taking cobalt-60 from a hospital in the northern city of Tijuana to a radioactive waste-storage center, Mexican officials and the U.N. agency said earlier.

Hezbollah blames Israel for commander killed in Beirut

Funeral. Hundreds of mourners followed his coffin through the streets of the Bekaa Valley town. A Hezbollah commander who fought in Syria’s civil war was shot dead outside his home in Lebanon on Wednesday in a killing

that the militant Shi’ite Muslim group blamed on Israel. Hassan al-Laqqis was shot in the head from close range by a silenced gun as he arrived home at around midnight in the Hadath district of Beirut, a source close to Hezbollah said. Israel, which fought a 34-day war with Hezbollah in 2006, denied any role in the shooting and hinted the motive may have been

Hezbollah’s military support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in his war with Sunni Muslim rebels. A previously unknown group, Ahrar al-Sunna Baalbek brigade, claimed responsibility for the attack in a message on Twitter. The claim could not be verified, but the name of the purported group suggested Lebanese Sunni Muslim connections.

“The Israeli enemy tried to get to our martyr brother several times, in more than one location, but these attempts failed until this repugnant assassination.”

Legal. Court questions Google defense against Oracle over Android A U.S. appeals court on Wednesday closely questioned Google’s claim that Oracle does not enjoy copyright protection over certain parts of the Java programming language. The issue, under review by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, is being closely watched by software developers in Silicon Valley. Google’s Android operating system is the world’s best-selling smartphone platform. The Java programming language was created by Sun Microsystems, which Oracle acquired in 2010. Oracle sued Google later that year, claiming that Google had improperly incorporated parts of Java into Android. Oracle President and Chief Financial Officer Safra Catz, who took the stand during trial last year, appeared in court

on Wednesday to hear the appellate arguments. At trial in San Francisco last year, Oracle claimed Google’s Android tramples on its rights to the structure of 37 Java APIs. Oracle sought roughly $1 billion on its copyright claims. REUTERS

Chimp rights case reaches court Monkey business. The Nonhuman Rights Project files a lawsuit on behalf of captive chimpanzees.

The case

‘Legal personhood’

As animal intelligence becomes better understood, treatment of primates has improved in many countries — for example, people will see fewer monkeys in circuses. But attorney Steven Wise, president of the Nonhuman Rights Project, is going further by seeking to obtain the first “legal person” status for chimps in a New York court. The NRP have wanted such legal rights for animals for many years. Why make this the first court case? We have been working on the problem generally and decided New York State was the right location,

NRP asked a New York state court to declare a 26-yearold chimp named Tommy “a cognitively complex autonomous legal person with the fundamental legal right not to be imprisoned.” The lawsuit seeks a declaration that Tommy’s “detention” in a “small, dank, cement cage in a cavernous dark shed” in central New York is unlawful and demands his immediate release to a primate sanctuary. REUTERS

and these chimpanzees were the right subjects. We found that two chimps had died in a few weeks in a roadside zoo, and so we filed on behalf of the four surviving chimps. This would change their legal status from “thing” to being with capacity for rights such as bodily liberty. Are you going to be laughed out of court? We believe in our argument. But as no one has made it, the first judge won’t have confronted the issue and we won’t win the lower court. We want a good record to then take to the appellate court, and then higher courts. I’ve been working on this case for 28 years, and we have seriously prepared since 2007, so I believe we have a reasonable chance. Is the public on your side? Yes, we commissioned a recent poll and most Americans across the political spectrum believed that chimps should have

the rights of a human child. Some believed they already did. Most outside of the exploitation business instinctively agree. How far do you want chimpanzee rights to go? And for other animals? Chimps have autonomy — that should be sufficient to have them declared legal persons and have their liberty. Other rights remain to be seen on a case-by-case basis. I’m not saying they should have the vote or education, but they should be left alone and unharmed. That protection requires the status of a person with the capacity for rights, and beyond that we can argue case by case. We just want to open the argument and breach the divide. We are using a 1772 case of a slave using common law to achieve freedom as a blueprint.

On the 22nd day, you’ve found the way,” he wrote. “One day before my 44th birthday, I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan — or as I prefer to call it, plant-

A lovely little place for a wedding, don’t you think?

This just in: Kim and Kanye are going to do a low-key, family-only wedding with little to no fuss or expense. Just kidding! The guy released a song this year titled “I Am a God,” so obviously he’s going to want to do it big, and that song has the line “in a French-ass restaurant, hurry up with my damn croissant!” so he obviously has a fondness for the French, which can only mean they’re getting married at the Palace of Versailles!

Cults keep from getting stale with some ‘Static’ Sophomore slam. The indie band don’t really “Go Outside” from the core group on their new album, and that’s a good thing. When a musical project that begins with one or two people becomes Internet famous, small groups are often forced to expand so that all of their sounds can be fully realized for the live show. And, just as often, the people who made up the core of the band just accept the touring musicians into the lineup for the second album.

But Cults guitarist and singer Brian Oblivion says he and singer Madeline Follin felt no such temptation to bring any additional help into the creative process. “I think I’m better with the complexities of putting together the keyboard part than the complexities of dealing with a keyboardist personality,” he says. “I think that’s the problem with me; I have a hard time dealing with other people.” This uneasy edge casts a shadow over the poppy 1960s sound on Cults’ new album, “Static.” It picks up where the band’s 2011 self-titled debut left off. The sound is richer, but it doesn’t sacrifice the intimacy or weirdness of two people having fun making

music, regardless of whether or not they find success. “It’s not like we have our hopes and dreams tied up in being a rock star,” says the guitarist. That said, a guy who calls himself Brian Oblivion could probably come up with a moment or two when he engaged in traditional “rock star” dalliances touring the world, right? “I think doing bath salts in Japan,” he says. “There was a moment where, after being up for 16 hours, I was sitting in the middle of Shibuya Crossing and I didn’t know where I was and I started crying and laughing hysterically and then crying again, while these Japanese people were crowding around me. I was like, ‘Oh this is too much.’”

Cults perform tonight at TLA (334 South St.) / GETTY IMAGES Internet famous

‘This crazy thing that nobody can control’ Cults began touring before they had a full-length album out. Oblivion says this accelerated expectation to play live has only increased in the few

years since. “I see a band like Chvrches and they’re playing at Terminal 5,” he says, citing the large NYC club. “They don’t even have a record out. But it’s, like, the barrier for success now. When we came up and were playing a sold-out Mercury Lounge show

with only four songs out, people were saying, ‘This is insane; the Internet has become this crazy thing that nobody can control,’ and little did they know it would just get more and more insane.”

(now in its fourth season) star Angela “Big Angâ€? Raiola fits that bill, and hers are bigger than most. However, if you ask her, she actually doesn’t care for the drama. Booze (she just came out with her own line of wines), good times and plastic surgery, however, are a different story. We got Ang and “Mob Wivesâ€? producer Jenn Graziano (sister of cast member Renee Graziano) on the line to talk mafia life. I don’t know much about the mob, but I understand it’s very secretive. How can you put this stu on TV? Raiola: I asked my family if it was OK with them, and they said if I could make money and have a good life, then go for it. Graziano: We had some opposition from the “Italian community.â€? In the beginning, there were a lot of skeptics, you know a lot of people in the lifestyle that were mad, thinking it was going to be very intrusive into their world. Even my own father wasn’t happy about

it, but I think, after time, we proved to everyone that it’s really about the women, how a certain lifestyle affects them, not giving away secrets. What’s the craziest thing a fan has done to you or said to you? Raiola: Well, just now, when I was shopping they jumped out of their car and they had their 2-year-old baby behind the wheel as it was running. I was like, “Excuse me, your 2-year-old is behind the wheel and your car is running!� and she said, “Oh she’ll be all right.� That just happened 10 minutes ago. That kind of freaked me out.

PIG IRON REVIVES ‘TWELFTH NIGHT’

Hijinks abound in Shakespeare’s comedy of mistaken identity, now at the new FringeArts theater on the Delaware waterfront.

Illyria. The theater company is honoring Shakespeare’s cross-dressing tale, with a few additions of its own.

Since its founding in 1995, Philly’s Pig Iron Theatre Company has developed more than 25 productions from scratch. As a rule, the company never began with an existing script. “I started to wonder, ‘At this point, is the next most difficult thing to find a script and stick to it?’” says co-founder Dan Rothenberg. “Like, can we do that without sacrificing all that we hold dear?” The resulting show was so well received at the 2011 Live Arts Festival that the company is now restaging it. “Twelfth Night, or What you Will” is Pig Iron’s attempt at honoring Shakespeare’s script — while having as much fun as they can along the way.

When the show premiered in 2011, this ultraexperimental company received rave reviews from the most straight-laced corners of the theater community — which was all good in Rothenberg’s eyes: “The risk we wanted to take was it’s OK if people don’t say, ‘Oh, this is an experimental production.’ We just wanted them to say this is a great production of ‘Twelfth Night,’ period.”

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

The sweetest gifts DIY. Rosie Daykin of Butter Baked Goods teaches us how to make tasty treats into pretty presents.

Recipe. Peanut Butter and Jam Cupss Ingredients

PLUS Tip

Go crazy

Rosie Daykin knows a thing or two about presentation. The former interior designer took her decorating skills to the kitchen, opening the charming, pink-and-pistachio-colored Vancouver bakery Butter Baked Goods in 2007. Thanks to her new cookbook, “Butter Baked Goods,” you can create her recipes of comfort and joy for your own friends and family. Daykin shares her tips for giving baked goods as gorgeous gifts this holiday season. The first step to making these presents, well, presentable: “Don’t give somebody Christmas baking in a disposable Ziploc!” she says.

How adorable is Daykin’s shop? / JANIS NICOLAY

“Maybe I’m going to give you Christmas morning breakfast,” she says. “Make the scones. Use a cello bag. That goes into a basket wrapped in a tea towel with some jam, butter and some tea.”

Perfect packaging “The gift is the baking — and the vehicle you put the baking on,” says Daykin. But pretty presentations don’t have to mean elaborate. “I like to keep my packaging clean,” she says. “I don’t want a tin that has pictures of bells on it. You get more impact with the elegant simplicity of an all-red tin with a thick green, satin ribbon.” Daykin recommends different containers for different treats. For a Christmas cookie sampler, she uses tiered bamboo steamers, which are typically available at the dollar store. “As you take the tiers apart, there are cookies on every level,” she says. “You can buy a single one with

+

Tough cookies a lid, or a set where they stack.” For items like the Peanut Butter and Jam Cups, on the right, Daykin suggests Chinese takeout food containers. We love colored boxes, like the one pictured, from Etsy.

Set a theme “Pick a theme,” Daykin suggests for gift giving. “What am I working around? It keeps you kind of focused.

Now through February 15

We know it’s the thought that counts, but your creations should be sturdy enough to make it to their destination. Daykin reminds us to opt for more durable and transportable confections. She notes that loaves are easy to transport. “Do up a chocolate pistachio loaf or a banana chocolate loaf in a cello bag with a nice ribbon and little tag. Now that’s a nice gift,” she says.

Peanut Butter and Jam Cups

1 drop red food coloring

12 salted peanuts, shelled and halved

One of Daykin’s favorite triedand-true gifts is a classic Christmas cookie sampler. She credits this to her grandmother’s holiday tradition of sending different cookies in coffee cans via Greyhound bus. “I start at the beginning of December and make a different cookie or treat every night for a couple of weeks. I box them all and package them in the freezer. Come Christmastime, I create these gift boxes for people with at least 14 different kinds of treats — a sampling of cookies.”

MAKE LULU WORK FOR YOU Like it or not, the Lulu App is here. So instead of mentally masturbating over whether the app is good or bad, I think it’s more useful to discuss how to use it. If you’re a woman who’s going to consult it pre-dates, or a man who’s checking your ratings, keep these things in mind: Ladies, the ratings aren’t objective. How many times has a woman offered to set you up with her amazing son, adorable cousin or single nephew? It’s always someone “you would just LOVE!” And if you’ve ever taken up one of those offers you know, generally the guy isn’t quite as great as promised. This is all to say that ratings from family members and close friends are biased. And of course, ratings from any exes are just as biased in the opposite direction.

Men may not be able to control their Lulu score, e but everyone can always control their behavior. / FLICKR

Guys, it takes two to tango. A bad sex score can mean as much about compatibility or her performance as it does about yours. Ladies, before posting something nasty, just tell him off. If a guy treated you horribly you shouldn’t just take it. But posting a rant about him isn’t

necessarily the best way to ensure that he treats other girls better. Your best shot at affecting his future dating behavior is taking the high road and talking to him directly about why his actions were insensitive. It’s best to tell him to his face, rather than try to get revenge behind his back. Guys, a bad score on

Lulu isn’t the end of the world. A girl reading something bad about you may slow her down. But if she really likes you, it’s unlikely to stop her. Ladies, guys can act in a range of ways. As hundreds of guys told me h when I was conducting w research for my book — r “Are All Guys Assholes?” “ — guys are capable of acting in immaturely and horrible bl to a girl they don’t care about, but they can also b be amazing boyfriends to a girl they do value. One girl’s bad review doesn’t necessarily mean the guy is a bad seed. Men and women alike: We’re all out there looking for that special someone (or most of us, anyway). But while we’re on that search, we owe it to each other to treat one another with respect — whether in person, online or on Lulu.

WHERE CAN YOU FIND CLASSY PORN? FUNKY BROWN CHICK KNOWS Do you have arousal tools or techniques for single people? Most porn is so, so yucky. Sort of like becoming a drug addict, it leaves me feeling dirty and disrespected. I know there’s some good stuff out there, and my literary brain is hungry for good stuff. How does a woman of class and intelligence go about stretching sexual boundaries solo? Rock on with your class and intelligence! Religion, parents, society and others sometimes teach us that sex is inherently tacky and vulgar. We are all sexual beings. Pursuing fulfillment in that arena is a worthwhile endeavor for anyone seeking a healthy, well-balanced life. I love that you used the words “tools” and “techniques.” Too often we blindly seek change in our lives without defining what needs to be different. Your head is in the right place on this one. You want to stretch your sexual boundaries, and you’re looking for a specific plan of action to achieve that goal. This is my advice:

Remember skin-to-skin contact is vital Perhaps you need more than sex. Touch triggers neurochemical responses in your body. If you live alone, it is possible to go days or weeks without anyone touching you. At the office, it would be weird if a co-worker caressed you. And although some friends hugs or kiss each time they meet, many don’t. Seek and give more platonic touches. Don’t feel guilty, dirty or ashamed if you crave more physicality in general.

Top chefs dish on their ideal last meals Savor Borgata

Street eats Chefs Michael Symon and Bobby Flay joined a list of culinary all-stars at Savor Borgata, an annual food-themed weekend event hosted by the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City last month. This year’s theme was street food, prompting chefs to prepare gourmet twists on popular hand-held fare. Guests feasted on grab-and-go treats like crispy-skin Peking duck in steamed buns, pulled pork sliders with Shacha sauce and New Mexican-style chicken skewers with green chile vinegar dipping sauce. The event also featured cooking lessons, demonstrations and an exclusive dinner with courses carefully prepared by participating chefs, called “Taste of Five Culinary Masters.”

Indulgence. It’s a bit morbid, yes, but admit it: You’ve thought about it too. We’ve all imagined our last meal — what would we eat if we knew we’d never eat again? Would it be a hodgepodge of our favorite foods, or one simple perfect dish? Not surprisingly, chefs in particular have put a lot of consideration into this scenario. Metro caught up with celebrity chefs and reallife pals Michael Symon and Bobby Flay at Savor Borgata, a weekend-long foodie event in Atlantic City last month. Symon, known for his restaurants in the Midwest, has two options for his last meal — but ultimately, he’d prefer to stick to his roots. “I’ve thought long and hard about this,” Symon says. “If my mother outlived me, which is very possible, I would have my mother’s lasagna, no doubt about it.” His backup plan includes specialties from fellow well-known chefs. “I figure I would have a lot of pull with the chefs, so I’d fly in Marc

Vetri to make me a pasta, Jonathan Waxman would make me a roast chicken, Bobby [Flay] would make me a shrimp tamale and Paul Kahan would do a

braised pork dish for me — and then I would die,” Symon muses. “To drink? I would have something bourbon-based. I love two parts bourbon, one part

ginger beer and a squeeze of lemon.” Flay’s last meal was far simpler and one he says he’d prefer to cook himself, since he knows best how he likes it. “So easy. It’s a cheeseburger with double American cheese and an ice cream sundae — period,” Flay says. “It’s not foie gras and caviar, none of that bulls—.” His drink of choice falls in line with Symon’s selection: “A glass of bourbon. Woodford Reserve Bourbon, right out of Kentucky,” Flay says. Sarabeth Levine, of Sarabeth’s Bakery fame, would go with a breakfast of champions. “Fresh tomato and a Hass avocado salad from California followed by eggs Benedict with English muffins and Mimi Sheraton’s potato pancakes with sour cream and homemade applesauce,” she tells us. “For dessert, homemade vanilla ice cream with a big spoonful of the Sarabeth’s Apricot Orange Marmalade, which is what it all started with.” Her final wish? “I want to be embalmed with creme anglais,” she says.

Isidori, whose Brooklyn restaurant Arthur on Smith was named after his late chef father, would choose a throwback meal for his last supper — one he has shared with his family many times. “I would have to say spaghetti pomodoro. It is a dish so simple, but so damn good,” Isidori says. “This dish transports me right back to my childhood while I was working with my father in his kitchen.”

As you brave the winter chill, browsing the galleries and sipping the free wine, make sure to stop by Arch Enemy Arts’ opening reception for “Small Wonders.” Miniatures are always cuter than their full-size counterparts. Make teeny artwork, and you add another dimension — small creations can go from adorable to alluring and strangely intimate. The gallery has tapped into this idea with a group show featuring work from almost 40 artists, both local and visiting. All pieces are no more than 12 inches and less than $250 in price.

It’s also Arch Enemy Arts’ first cash-and-carry show, meaning when you buy a piece of artwork, it

Shillenn expects items to go fairly quickly, too. “Openings have a good energy, but there’s something a little more fun about Small Wonders,” he says. “The prices are more reasonable, so people don’t have to go home and sleep on it or spend as much time thinking about whether they should buy or not.” The show includes illustrations, fiber art,

Meet the man behind Cheu’s black garlic wings Hot Chef. Between Cheu and Matyson, Ben Puchowitz is one busy cook. Ben Puchowitz hadn’t always planned on becoming a chef, but now he’s one of the hottest in town. While going to school at Temple, Puchowitz started working at his family’s restaurant, the upscale BYOB Matyson. When his cousin, the restaurant’s cofounder, left for the West Coast, Puchowitz took the reins to the kitchen. Earlier this year, he and his buddy Shawn Darragh got experimental and opened Cheu Noodle Bar, a casual, small spot with Sixpoint on the beer list, a brisket

noodle bowl with matzo balls and kimchi, and, of course, those addictive black garlic wings. How are things going at Cheu? Cheu’s going great. We’re really busy and everything feels more organized. In the beginning it was real tough. I never opened a restaurant before — it was chaos. It took a while but we figured it out. How do you split up your time between Cheu and Matyson? I do six days at Cheu and one at Matyson. Yikes. What do you do when you get a day o? Laundry? I’m going to New York, and I’m going to eat at

Ben Puchowitz likes “fermented things and the sourness you get from that.� All of the dishes at Cheu have a fermented element. / PROVIDED

Cheu just won the So Hot Right Now award from Eater Philly. How important is that for Cheu? It’s kind of important. I had big dreams for this place when we opened. I see all these places doing the style that we’re doing and opening up in New York and L.A. They’ve opened to huge praise. I was hoping to get the same response. I try really hard with everything I do. I think it’s what you need to do, as a chef or not.

You read cookbooks pretty regularly, right? Yeah, I read a lot of cookbooks. It’s really important for me to know what’s going on in food outside of Philly. I got into the business in a way that wasn’t traditional. I went from cook to head chef. I wish I kind of did it differently. If I went to school I would have learned a lot more – everything would’ve been easier. Or learning under a bunch of chefs and seeing what they do. I only had one mentor and that was

NBA. The Sixers took a gamble on Andrew Bynum and it cost them center Nikola Vucevic, who’s flourishing in Orlando. The 76ers went for the big splash. At the time, sending Nikola Vucevic to the Orlando Magic as part of a deal to acquire Andrew Bynum seemed like the right idea. No one knew Bynum would never play a game for the Sixers because of bilateral bone bruises in both knees. No one knew that Vucevic would develop into a double-double machine. Or did they? “I always thought if I could get consistent minutes, I could put up numbers and help my team win,” Vucevic said Tuesday night as the Magic visited Wells Fargo Arena. “I just needed to play every night.” That wasn’t happening under former Sixers coach Doug Collins. He played just 51 games (15

starts) in 2011-12 and averaged 15.9 minutes per game. When the blockbuster trade was completed between four teams before last season, Vucevic began to flourish with the Magic. As he continued to play well, the questions came about the 16th-overall pick in the 2011 draft. “Reporters would ask me and I would always say the same thing,” Vucevic said. “It’s playing time. I always had confidence in my ability. Knowing you’re going to be on the court helps a lot. Then you have to produce and my teamResumé Nikola Vucevic was just a three-star recruit coming out of Stone Ridge Prep in Simi Valley, Calif., according to Rivals.com •

He averaged 17.1 points and 10.3 rebounds per game that junior season.

mates have done a great job here keeping me real involved in the offense. I think all facets of my game have improved, though. I feel like my defense has come a really long way.” Vucevic missed Tuesday’s game against the Sixers with an injured ankle. But there are many games ahead to continue proving his mettle. “I don’t take things personally and I don’t blame the Sixers because they made a decision,” Vucevic said. “It sent me to a great place and I like everything about where I am with the Magic. It’s a

great organization. I feel very lucky to be there. I feel my game is improving all the time.” So do his teammates. “Nik is so consistent,” said guard Arron Afflalo, who scored a career-high 43 points against the Sixers Tuesday night. “He’s a great shooter and he has a great feel around the basket. On defense, he plugs the middle and blocks shots. He’s a budding star if you ask me. He’s a team guy and will do anything to win. For such a young player, he’s very poised.” But Vucevic said he fully expected to remain with the Sixers. When they went for the big splash with Bynum and it backfired, Vucevic ultimately wound up with the Magic. “I’m very glad to be here,” Vucevic said. “The Sixers made a business decision. For me as a player, I knew I had to come in and work hard. I got minutes. That’s what really helped. I hope to be here for a long, long time.”

MCW on fire

The Flyers won’t be able to shore up their tenuous goalie position with one of the greatest in the sport — not that they likely harbored those dreams. Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, due to be a free agent at season’s end was locked up to a sevenyear, $59.5 million extension. The 31-year-old goalie is a seven-time All Star and won the Vezina Trophy in 2011-12.

Sixers have time off before trip The Sixers will have a few days to bask in the glory of a onepoint double overtime victory against the Magic. They don’t pick up again until Friday when they travel to face the Bobcats. One person who may wish to keep the momentum from Tuesday rolling is Michael Carter-Williams, who netted his second career triple-double on the heels of being named Rookie of the Month. METRO

Belly-laugh Bill

Pats’ Belichick cracks joke Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was in an unusually jovial mood Wednesday in Foxboro, Mass. and took a small jab at the Jets when asked about his time as head coach of the Browns, who the Pats play this Sunday. “I was there for five years,” Belichick said of Cleveland. “But obviously I’ve moved on and I have a job to do here. … It’s no different than how I feel, honestly, about the Colts or the Lions or the Broncos [previous Belichick assistant coaching stops]. “I feel differently about the Jets. We won’t put them in that category.” METRO Tripped up

Better days ahead NCAA. Temple football is looking for a quick turnaround after a 2-10 season.

Forget what the schedule and calendar says. The season didn’t end for 2-10 Temple Saturday when the Owls crushed Memphis, 41-21, to at least salvage something out of a disappointing year. In the minds of first year coach Matt Rhule and his players, it’s just the be-

“We averaged 400 yards a game, the second most in school history. That shows the direction we’re headed.” Temple head coach Matt Rhule

made more field goals in the final game (two) than in the first 11, they know there’s much to do if Temple is to bounce back. “As we look ahead, I think the hard lessons we learned were things we had to learn,” said Rhule, whose club lost three games where it had the lead in the final minute and led in the second half eight times. “Seeing how easy it is to lose a game, how small the margin of error, will be really good for our program moving forward. Now we have to recruit, develop and find players to help us win those games.” Fortunately for Rhule, he has a quarterback in Walker who threw for 20 touchdowns and averaged 232 yards passing after taking the reins a month into the season, and a defensive leader in Matakevich to build around. “I have to learn to protect the ball,’’ said Walker, who also threw eight in-

terceptions. “You can’t win games if you turn the ball over. I learned a lot each game, each week. But now I need to get into better shape and learn the offense better.” According to Rhule, such dedication — especially considering the frustrating way the season went, with Army and Memphis the only breakthroughs — can’t help but bode well for the future. “As I told these guys right from the beginning, I’m going to raise the standards, the ‘price of admission’ here,” said Rhule, who was an assistant on Al Golden’s staff when the Owls went from 1-11 laughingstock to 9-3 in just three seasons. “That’s why we started this morning. You have to be positive and start moving forward. This is what we did once before.”

Brandon Boykin has a team-high four interceptions. / GETTY IMAGES

In 2011 and 2012, the Eagles had the worst turnover differential in the NFL. Under Chip Kelly, and specifically with Nick Foles at quarterback, things are drastically improving in that department. With Foles at QB this season, Philadelphia is a plus-13 in turnover margin, which counts fumbles and interceptions on both sides of the ball. For the season, they are a plus-7, which is tied for sixth-best in the NFC. “It’s one of the real big

We stress takeaways on defense and ball security on the offensive side of the ball.� Foles has received plenty of attention for not throwing any picks this season.

FANTASY

SEND SOME STARS TO THE BENCH

ADAM LEVITAN, LIVING THE FANTASY

Now that the playoffs are here, a lot of fantasy advice out there will tell you to “ride your studs� no matter what. I can’t think of worse advice. We’re not going to get any points for what guys have done in the past. Dancing with the girl you brought to the party might be the honorable play, but it doesn’t mean you’re definitely going to get lucky. There are guys trending downward right now that can be sat for less-proven options.

METRO’S FANTASY GURU BREAKS IT ALL DOWN.

Match game Be sure to start these wideouts this week.

The Woodman Danny Woodhead was the everyman kind of hero early in the season as he dominated pointper-reception formats. From Week 2 to Week 8, he averaged 14.2 touches per game and 36.7 snaps. In Weeks 9 to 13, he’s at just nine touches and 29 snaps. The reduced role is a result of Ryan Mathews’ increasingly impressive play and perhaps the coach’s perception that Woodhead is wearing down. Despite a plus matchup at home against the Giants this week, the Woodman can be put on the shelf.

NFL news Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that Ladarius Green is blocked by Antonio Gates. Last week, Green played on 61-of-67 snaps and Gates was in for 62-of-67. The Chargers are using the two-tight end set as their base, making a concerted eort to unleash the massive potential of Green.

•

Julian Edelman, Patriots — Edelman has moved ahead of Danny Amendola and plays all over the ďŹ eld. Joe Haden won’t follow him.

•

Riley Cooper, Eagles — Cooper’s box scores have been quiet, but he’s still getting tons of red-zone chances.

Air Jordan

Jordy boy

Our favorite preseason sleeper has hit the skids. Thanks in large part to mostly inept quarterback play and Josh Gordon dominating targets, Jordan Cameron has just 14 catches for 108 yards with no touchdowns over the last four weeks. Now he has to go to a tough spot at New England and might be catching passes from Alex Tanney or Caleb Hanie. Ladarius Green is a better play right now.

We knew the entire Packers offense would take a hit with Aaron Rodgers down. But we didn’t know it would be this bad. Scott Tolzien and Matt Flynn have been so inept that one of the best receivers in football, Jordy Nelson, has just 20 catches for 245 yards with no touchdowns over the last four weeks. If Rodgers’ collarbone isn’t ready to rock by Sunday, Nelson will be more of a top-35 play than top-10.
