Ivy League rivals Princeton, Harvard get high marks while Penn dissed University says the mag’s ranking doesn’t get much attention Why Penn gets overlooked RIKARD LARMA/METRO

Good day, bad day

Good day The city broke ground on a 100-unit public housing development at the site of the former Paschall Apartments. The $38 million Paschall Village will feature rental homes and apartments with several green amenities and is expected to open in Oct. 2011.

Penn can’t catch break on Forbes

This house at 1817 Delancey Place became the city’s most expensive rowhome ever.

A whole new class of row home: $5.85M There’s a new standard for how expensive a Center City row home will sell for: $5.85 million. And leave it to a Comcast honcho to be the guy who throws down that kind of scratch. Stephen Burke, chief operating officer for the telecommunications giant, closed on the renovated house in May, according to the blog Technically Philly. METRO

Forbes magazine must not have too many University of Pennsylvania graduates in its editorial department. The magazine once again ranked Philadelphia’s Ivy League representative way below rivals like Princeton, Harvard and Yale, all three of which finished in the magazine’s top 10. Penn placed 36th. For their part, school officials at Penn don’t pay much attention to rankings, according to the university’s spokesman — though he was able to quickly identify Penn’s place at No. 4 on another annual ranking by U.S. and World Reports. “What we do with all rankings is they’re there and we just don’t pay regular attention to them,” Penn spokesman Ron Ozio said Thursday, a few hours after the Forbes list was released. “I don’t even know what we were ranked.

Basis for ranks: Data collected either from an annual survey sent to each school or from the school’s website and opinion surveys of university faculty and administrators who do not belong to the school.

Business owner killed for cash RIKARD LARMA/METRO

Menhaden, or “bunker”

Massive fishkill on Del. bay befuddling NEW JERSEY. The N.J.

Department of Environmental Protection took more water samples Thursday to investigate the “massive die-off” of menhaden, a baitfish, in the Delaware Bay. They could be closing in on answers. The DEP doesn’t think pollution, a toxic algae bloom or a broken commercial fishing net is to blame for thousands of dead fish washing up on New Jersey’s bay coast. Among the possible explanations is that predators drove large schools into oxygen-deficient areas and unusually high water temperatures. “This appears to have been a natural event,” DEP

8

Miles of beach on the Delaware Bay in Cape May County, particularly Middle Township, where the menhaden were found Wednesday. This area is mostly marshy and inaccessible by land. spokesman Lawrence Hajna said. The highest concentration of dead fish — the zone spans about eight miles — is at High’s Beach in Middle Township, Cape May County. John Senn of the federal EPA said menhaden kills are not uncommon for the area and are generally caused by “low levels of dissolved oxygen in the water or elevated levels of toxins or pollution, though N.J. DEP has yet to attribute either of these factors ... as the cause of this fishkill.” METRO/BH

Careless smoking led to blaze, boy’s death RIKARD LARMA/METRO

A 12-year-old boy died in a fire last weekend The blaze caused controversy because of city’s new fire station brownout policy A cigarette left burning on a couch caused a fire that killed a 12-year-old autistic boy inside his West Philadelphia home last weekend, a fire department spokesman said Thursday. The official cause was “careless smoking” inside the house at 137 S. 55th St. Frank Marasco, who was deemed autistic, was found dead in a second-floor bedroom. Though the home did not have working smoke detectors, the fatal fire was immediately scrutinized since it came five days after the department’s rolling brownouts started. Some firehouses have been alternately — but temporarily — closed to reduce overtime manhours during the budget crunch. “People in the neighborhoods are still concerned,” said Chief William Dell, a department spokesman.

‘Highly significant’ in Delaware Bay That’s how a leading wildlife advocate described the fishkill, which remained a bit of a mystery Thursday. Some think it may have been caused by a lack of oxygen in shallow water where the “bunker” washed ashore.

Fire response It took only three minutes for Engine 68 to arrive at the scene of the fire after the initial call came out, according to fire department officials. That’s two minutes less than the national average, they say.

“In firefighting, seconds count.” The department maintains that its coverage system afforded a proper response to the fatal fire within five minutes of the call. They had to retrieve a truck that was undergoing repairs, reportedly. City Council is expected to address the brownout controversy after its summer recess. BRIAN HICKEY

Lernin Perez — mother of Frank Marasco, who died in the fire last weekend — clutches a toy that survived the blaze.

TOM FOREMAN POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT FOR CNN

THE QUIETEST LITTLE VOTE America voted this past week, or at least some Americans did, and if you read any of the nonsense that passed for political analysis in the wake of that, now would be a good time to flush that right out of your system. Like a plate of bad oysters, or any lingering memories of “The Tyra Banks Show.” Because in terms of grand trends or prognostications, the votes this week actually meant pretty much nothing.

Judge set to lift Calif. ban on gay marriage

JUSTIN SULLIVAN/GETTY IMAGES

Same-sex couples will be allowed to wed again starting Wednesday Follows judge’s ruling on Prop 8 A federal judge Thursday ruled that marriages of same-sex couples may resume next week in California, pending the appeal of his earlier decision that overturned a voter-approved ban on gay matrimony. The order to allow gay marriage will take effect at 5 p.m. PDT on Aug. 18. The delay was intended

to give an appeals court time to consider “in an orderly manner” whether the ban, known as Proposition 8, should be left intact while it considers the merits of the overall case. Thursday’s ruling left neither side completely happy. “I think they should have lifted the stay today,” said James Olivera, 58, a

gay marriage supporter on the steps of San Francisco City Hall. “God’s Holy law has been trampled on by one person,” responded Viktor Choban, 27. Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker ruled last week that Prop 8 violates due-process and equal-protection rights under the U.S. Constitution. REUTERS CARL DE SOUZA/AFP/GETTY IMAGES

es, I’ve said it, and I’m glad, I tell you! Glad! (Insert maniacal laughter here. Go ahead. The other people on the subway will give you more room.) For heaven’s sake, we’re talking about primaries in a fistful of far-flung states.

There is just nothing else for the Punditeers (like Mouseketeers, only without all the smiling and singing) to do in D.C. Oh sure, there is a reheated debate about immigration reform, but that’s going nowhere. Military cutbacks? Yawn. Even Charlie Rangel’s “crazy from the heat” rant on the House floor about how they’ll have to drag him out before he’ll quit had trouble rousing the rabble.

ut even in the worst of times, the D.C. crowd loves nothing so much as picking apart polls and polling to predict who might be a winner in the next round of voting. Even if there is really very little at which to pick. To be fair, one could make the long-shot observation that the voting this week suggested a general trend against political insiders, that voters are somewhat more inclined to hold political experience against a candidate than to count it for him or her. But that’s hardly a revelation. So kick back. Open up another cold one. Democrat, Republican or independent, the voting this week came and went like a tree falling in the woods, and we won’t hear the crash, at least until summer is gone.

Come November, President Obama could have good reason to look this concerned.

Democratic control of Congress and the fate of President Barack Obama’s agenda are on the line in U.S. congressional elections this November, but some voters do not seem thrilled with their choices. Discontent with Obama and his fellow Democrats in Congress as the economy struggles and the deficit soars has energized some conservatives, including the Tea Party movement, and boosted Republican chances of winning the House of Representatives and perhaps even the Senate.

“####. A MUST-SEE MOVIE.” Michael Sauter, LIFE & STYLE WEEKLY

www.metro.us WEEKEND, AUGUST 13-15, 2010

Public Enemy are all over the ‘Planet’ Chuck D is still a ‘Rebel Without A Pause’ along with Flavor Flav and the rest of the crew The hip-hop legend on playing 70 countries and his new website As the leader of the legendary hip-hop group Public Enemy, Chuck D has spent more time at the airport than some pilots. Those frequent flier miles have definitely piled up. In fact, the frontman sees traveling as the key to the group’s longevity. “The minute we were able to get passports, Public Enemy was the first group to explore,” he says. “So all the places that we laid seed in years ago are now continuing to bear fruit.” The traveling is nothing new. PE has been taking their socially conscious brand of hip-hop around the world almost from the beginning of their career. Now on the eve of releasing a new fan-financed album (more than 20 years after releasing classics like “It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back” and “Fear Of A Black Planet”) and a tour that brings

them to the Troc on Friday, it doesn’t look like a break is coming soon. “We’ve only been to 70 countries out of the total of 212. We go to countries like people go to cities. And we haven’t run out of countries,” he laughs. “People ask, ‘Hey what have y’all been doing?’ and I say we been busy. We just ain’t been to your town. Yet.” G. VALENTINO BALL letters@metro.us

Andy Molholt, we do expect that egg hunt

TIFFANY YOON

The Michaels and Andrews actually seem like nice young gentlemen — don’t hesitate to share your cab to Fishtown with them.

The Armchairs’ release party for ‘Science & Advice’ is this weekend at Johnny Brenda’s And from what we can tell, it sounds like a good time The power has just gone out at Punk Rock Payroll’s studios in South Philly, leaving The Armchairs in the early evening darkness. Band member Michael Chadwick has reportedly stuck his head in a box. Andy Molholt suspects that the outage has both caused a leak in the roof and made the room smell worse. The remaining Michael and Andrew — this is a band of exclusively Michaels and Andrews — are cheering the other two on.

There are no rules while on speakerphone in the dark. “My question is, where the hell are the hoverboards?” says Molholt when it is agreed that we should return to questions.

If you go The Armchairs Friday, 9 p.m. Johnny Brenda’s $10, 215-739-9684 www.johnnybrendas.com

“I was promised hoverboards. We’re not very happy with where the future has gone.” That’s fair, and might (but most likely doesn’t) explain why their debut album, “Science & Advice,” at times sounds like it should be listened to in a daisy chain and polyester suit. Pop-y and a little psychedelic — with a 50-second ode to Harrison Ford “saving people from his helicopter” for good measure — it’s a welcome, re-

freshing break from summer in Philly. Friday night’s release party seems like it’s going to be just as fun, despite the electricity and lack of Ford. “There’s going to be a magic show,” says Molholt. “An Easter egg hunt. A guy hanging from hooks. If there’s not an Easter egg hunt, blame Andy Molholt.” Will do. MONICA WEYMOUTH

‘Eat’of the moment

Julia Roberts sinks her teeth into her latest role But not as much as her director insists Why filming around the world was so fulfilling Julia Roberts wants to clear up one thing about the making of “Eat Pray Love.” Director Ryan Murphy has been telling folks his lead actress put on 10 pounds during production — specifically during the food-heavy Italian leg of their aroundthe-world trip — but Roberts insists that’s an exaggeration. “Ryan keeps telling people I put on 10 pounds. It was a little less than that,” she says. “But I loved every pound. And everybody says, ‘Oh, it’s going to drop right off in India,’ but I didn’t get that memo. That did not happen.” To properly recreate memoirist Elizabeth Gilbert’s journey of self-discovery from her home in New York to Rome, India and Bali, Murphy and Roberts set out to shoot “Eat Pray Love” in order, something most movies can’t afford to do. “For me, it was a great luxury to shoot it in chrono-

you can’t start any movie in Bali and then leave.” The role also proved to be an intense internal journey for Roberts. “This was one of the first situations I’d been in that did call for a lot of emotional availability,” she admits, though the source material was a great help. “It was all there,” she says. “What she wrote about and what her experience was is so rich, and her ability to share all those feelings is so keen.”

“We went to Naples to where [Gilbert] had eaten that pizza and got there at eight in the morning. [I] proceeded to start my day with eight slices of pizza in 45 minutes,” Roberts says. “So the deliciousness of something wears a tiny bit after piece seven — just because you’re speed-eating. But that scene in particular I sort of relished just wolfing it down. And I would eat an entire slice in a take. I don’t know why I thought that was a great idea.” METRO/NE NED EHRBAR METRO WORLD NEWS IN LOS ANGELES

Geeky heartthrob Michael Cera on battling evil exes in ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’ How director Edgar Wright scored such a sweet soundtrack

Fight cub

Dreamy? You bet He gets beat up by girls and doesn’t have his own apartment, but for some reason, Michael Cera is legitimately swoon-worthy in “Scott Pilgrim.” What gives? We asked Lacey Soslow — whose book “Geeky Dreamboats” features Cera on the cover — to explain: “He’s the sensitive, delicate flower underdog that the ball-buster tough chick, vinyl-dweeb emo girl, and sorority girl with a heart of gold can all collectively root for — crossing genres all the way to the bank.”

Michael Cera stars as the equally twee Scott Pilgrim in “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.” UNIVERSAL STUDIOS

Even when he’s a comic book character wielding a supercharged sword, you get the feeling you could beat up Michael Cera. Not that you’d want to — he’s his signature adorable, nervous self in “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” the new film adaptation of the graphic novel series. But the role did put him in some unfamiliar territory, as he’s required to battle seven evil exes to score his dream girl (Mary Elizabeth Winstead). “It took a lot of work for it to look halfway natural,”

Quoted

“It took a lot of work for it to look halfway natural. I would do it, then watch the playback, and it would look so delicate.” CERA ON PREPARING FOR THE FIGHT SCENES IN “SCOTT PILGRIM”

admits Cera of training for the fight scenes. “Even, like, this” — he makes a blocking move — “I would do it, then watch the playback, and it would look so delicate.” Delicate’s an appropriate word. And it didn’t help when he had to go up against Mae Whitman, the sole female and definite feistiest ex. “Mae’s terrifying with that belt,” remembers Cera. “It felt like she could really kill you with that thing.” (Winstead steps in to finish her off.)

But unlike most comic book heros, it doesn’t look like Cera will have to get back in fighting shape again. The film includes material from the six existing books, and director Edgar Wright has no plans for a sequel. “We thought instead of making a sequel, we could just re-release this one,” says Wright, who calls the series “a gift to adapt.” “Just watch it again. It’s cheaper.” MONICA WEYMOUTH

Hear this

Beck

Scott Pilgrim’s band might have an unfortunate name, but none other than Beck wrote Sex Bob-omb’s songs. Wright explains his killer soundtrack, which also in-

cludes Cornelius and Broken Social Scene: “I’ve been friends with Nigel Godrich for nearly 10 years, and we always wanted to work together on something. About two years ago, we started getting the artists together, and the idea was to get different artists to play the different fictional bands. So we got Beck onboard, then Metric. And then it fell into place. So it was amazing — it’s an embarrassment of riches.”

‘Scott Pilgrim’ is armed with fresh new tricks ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’ Director: Edgar Wright Cast: Michael Cera, Mary Elizabeth Winstead Rating: PG-13 Grade: –—˜™š

We watch TV online, we’ve seen Twitter streaming on TV — the next logical step had to be video-game movies, right? Sure, there

was “Tron” and “The Matrix,” even the torturous “Super Mario Bros.” movie before it, but “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” has perfected not only the video-game aesthetic of the graphic novels it’s based on, but the teen action-comedy altogether. Unlike the aforementioned examples, “Scott Pil-

grim” operates from the perspective of the player holding the controls. It takes the ordinary existence of a 20-something hipster and turns it into an epic adventure, complete with 1up extra lives, points gained with a flutter of gold coins, and the cartoonish “Pow, Wap, Bop!” for every punch. The real pleasure of the

film is that you never know what tricks will pop up next — either it’s witty dialogue or visual extras such as a Simms-like bar that pops up to show how badly Pilgrim needs to take a wiz. The film’s fresh take on how to tell a story will keep the fanboys it’s made for on their toes. And it’ll even charm their dates. HEIDI PATALANO

From Neverland to Kensington PuppeTyranny! resurrects ‘Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens’ for an outdoor puppet production Why you might want to leave the kids home Zac Palladino is surrounded by seemingly endless shelves of ad hoc art supplies in his Kensington workspace, where he’s preparing for PuppeTyranny!’s latest production, “Peter Pan In Kensington Gardens.” “For the most part everything we make is out of recycled materials — cardboard, paper, found things. It’s just whatever’s on hand,” he says. But just a year into their existence, PuppeTyranny! is quite comfortable living on the fringe of the Fringe — partly for philosophical

reasons, and also due to cash poor necessity. The group decided to forgo the upcoming Philly Fringe Festival in favor of this weekend’s DIY perform-

ances in a Kensington community garden. The idea to adapt J.M. Barrie’s 1906 novella — set in London’s royal park, not North Philly — came when co-founder Leslie Rogers was the assistant puppet designer for the Arden Theatre’s “Peter Pan.” In her research, she came across “Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens” — the oft overlooked precursor to the later “Pan” works. “We have to do this in our Kensington — the Philly Kensington!” she said to Palladino.

While this “Pan” plays with the themes and conventions of children’s theater, PuppeTyranny! isn’t interested in creating easily digested family fun. “It just might be the kind of children’s show that could emotionally disturb a child,” he deadpans. “I mean, Peter is a grotesque naked baby. There’s no violence, cursing or sex, but puppets tend to be kind of grotesque in their own way.” BRUCE WALSH

A whole new hassle for the Hoff

Comedy Central is roasting David Hasselhoff — and they’re not afraid to bring up the cheeseburger incident Of course, it’s all in good fun Why the former ‘Baywatch’ star enjoyed it and doesn’t take life too seriously He’s been the butt of a lot of jokes, but this time David Hasselhoff is getting in on the action. The star put himself in the hot seat for an old-fashioned roast by the folks at Comedy Central, but the Hoff wasn’t fazed. “Honest to God, I wasn’t acting at all. I couldn’t stop laughing. My face hurts,” Hasselhoff said backstage after the taping. Hasselhoff went into the event with an open mind and a healthy amount of self-awareness: “If you can’t laugh about yourself and you hold things in and you take life seriously, that’s when you have problems,” he said. A popular target was Hasselhoff’s continued popularity in Germany, something he’s less apt to poke fun at: “I’ve never had more

Greenland, that insular misnomer, which is actually 80 percent ice — in fact, the planet’s second-largest concentration of solid water outside of Antarctica — lost a sizable chunk of its frozen mass last week; approximately 97 square miles of such, to be vaguely exact. Scientists warn that

a global temperature rise of just 2 degrees would hasten the Greenland ice thaw, causing sea levels to rise by 23 feet worldwide. Now, we understand the nation is somewhat polarized over the issue of global climate change — one side trusts the scientific consensus, while the other has only disdain and noogies for those educated, elitist pencil-necks — so we wanted to weigh in with some good sense: Whether or not man is the cause of a warming earth will be largely irrelevant once we’re all up to our necks in seawater. So can we at least attempt to care about the potential impending end of planetary life as we know it?

Aces not intimidated by Citizens Bank Park Oswalt, Halladay elected to be traded to hitter-friendly park Starters have impressive numbers at home yard Key is keeping ball out of the air Phils battle Mets this weekend JOSEPH KACZMAREK/METRO

John Smoltz trashed Citizens Bank Park not long after the yard opened in 2004. “I’ve played a long time and some of the balls that are leaving there, it’s not right. It’s a joke,” Smoltz said. The former Braves hurler made it sound like it would be crazy for a pitcher to want to come to the Phillies’ hitter-friendly ballpark. However, a pair or Roys — Halladay and Oswalt — are among the best in baseball, and they elected to be traded here. Halladay, who threw 33 consecutive shutout innings at home in July, has thrived in his new digs. “I’m fine pitching in this ballpark,” Halladay said. “I think I pitch the same way in every park. But it’s important to keep the ball down here, and that’s what I try to do.

Sixers prez

Thorn installed Rod Thorn greeted the media Thursday for the first time as Sixers president. Thorn, the 200102 NBA Executive of the Year, had spent the last 10 seasons in charge of the Nets. “This is a great opportunity to join one of the most storied franchises in the NBA,” Thorn said.

On TV Friday Oswalt picked up his first win as a Phillie Wednesday.

Home runs hit at Citizens Bank Park this season, or 2.28 per game. There have been 93 hit at Minute Maid Park (1.60), according to Hittrackeronline. That’s the best way to stay out of trouble when you pitch here.” Oswalt concurs. “You just try to get them [the opposition] to hit ground balls,” Oswalt said. “That’s the key. If I give up a hard hit ball, it’s probably going out of any park.” Manager Charlie Manuel doesn’t think the Phillies home yard should be a big deal for a pitcher. “If you can pitch, you can pitch anywhere,” Manuel said. “That goes for this ballpark. You can pitch well here and you can win here. I think we proved that by winning a championship here.”

“I pitched at Minute Maid Park in Houston and I would say that’s worse [than Philadelphia].’” ROY OSWALT

Storylines to watch: Kolb, Eagles go live

Kolb

Preseason Week 1: Jaguars at Eagles When: Friday, 7:30 p.m. TV: 6ABC Radio: 94.1 WYSP, Sirius 126

While the Kevin Kolb era won’t really begin until Sept. 12, this will be his first real test. Kolb has had mixed results in training camp — some days he’s accurate, other days he’s chucking interceptions at the goal line. He’s not expected to play more than a quarter, but it’s a chance to show the fans the future is bright. It doesn’t hurt that he’s playing against a team that comes up early (Sept. 26) on the Eagles’ regular-season schedule.

Third-year lineman Mike McGlynn will get the starting nod at center as Jamaal Jackson (ACL) and Nick Cole (knee) are inactive. Both Kolb and coach Andy Reid have expressed faith in McGlynn, who has seen action in just two regular-season games in his NFL, never starting. “He’s going to go in there and not miss a beat, and not be afraid of anything,” Kolb said. If McGlynn excels, it could heat up the competition with Cole, who was expected to start the opener.

All eyes on Ernie Sims. After four miserable years in Detroit, the linebacker is pumped for a fresh start, as evidenced by his jarring hits in camp, even in non-contact drills. Sims now has a chance to pop some opponents not wearing green. He’s sure to take full advantage of that. And judging by his backups on the unofficial depth chart — Tracy White, Simoni Lawrence — Sims has no real competition at the WILL linebacker spot. METRO

How will Kolb handle the pressure?

Center of attention: What can McGlynn do?

Don’t call it a comeback — or can we?
