Wake up and step aside, Steve Austin; it's time to make room for the "$4.5 Million Dollar Researcher"! Marla R. Wolfson, a Temple U. med school prof of psychology, pediatrics and medicine, has just snared two grants of close to $4.5 mil from the Office of Naval Research to study the possibilities of certain chemicals in preventing high altitude problems in the lungs of military men and women. ...

Six degrees of front-page news? Sure is, when you consider that The Front Page -- the classic Broadway play -- was co-written by Ben Hecht (along with Charles MacArthur) and the award being given out by the Zionist Organization of America-Greater Philadelphia District at its 2012 gala on Sept. 6 is the Ben Hecht Award for Outstanding Journalism. The recipient is David Horowitz, conservative standard-bearer, author and speaker who is editor of FrontPage Magazine. Sharing headlines that night will be Rabbi Albert Gabbai of Mikveh Israel, recipient of the Guardian of Israel Award. Ardent Israel activists William and Annette Sutter aren't exactly being relegated to Page 2 either as they receive the new ZOA Friends of Zion Award. ...

Goodbye and good luck to Shelly Yanoff, recently retired after more than 20 years as exec director of Public Citizens for Children and Youth. ...

Attorney Bernard M. Resnick -- a Villanova Law School grad -- discussed "Whose Rights Are They Anyway?", addressing copyright concerns before the local branch of the Recording Academy of America, in a session held at the Philadelphia Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts. ...

My Father, the Old Horse captured Best Undergraduate Honors for director Max Einhorn (don't know what his dad had to say about it) at the Temple Film and Media Arts 2012 Diamond Screen Film Festival. ...

If it's Tuesday, it must be Eskin: Howard Eskin, whose move from KYW-TV in '86 to the post of sports anchor at Fox 29 was a major-league catapult -- getting 29's sports coverage off the ground -- is returning to Fox, from which he's been gone many years, as sports anchor, beginning his new/old role on Sept. 4. ...

They must really cherish her at Rutgers/Camden law school, where popular prof Pam Jenoff has just come out with her latest novel, The Things We Cherished. ...

Take me to your leader? Then head in the direction of attorney Sarah Klosek. The registered patent lawyer at the Princeton office of Fox Rothschild has been chosen a "New Leader of the Bar," courtesy of theNew Jersey Law Journal. ...

Nora Cohen, the former fundraiser for the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society -- the group that brings us the Philadelphia Flower Show every year -- is really getting her hands dirty these days (metaphorically speaking): She's working as deputy director of advance for the current campaign of Vice President Joe Biden, who has been making his own news these days. And, no, despite Biden's recent flurry of foul-ups, "Stars" is not making any comments about bad weeds.
