Here's the word on ecological matters for families from TV's "Newton" scientist, Bill Nye the Science Guy and a mad scientist: "My biggest concern is the destruction of our natural habitat. Families need to share in their understanding of concern. Adults and young people need to work together, for example, on how to use water more wisely and protect that natural habitat, and make sure they purchase environmentally safe products."

David Heil, host of PBS' "Newton's Apple," can afford to be generous when discussing his new competition. His show, acclaimed for its approach to exploring science, is entering its 11th season. "I think it's an interesting opportunity," he says. "The more we experiment with science ideas, the more we all learn. TV is a resource. I know I'm actually happier when I see there are science shows. I'm pleased as punch."

Laker Coach Mike Dunleavy faces a tall order this week. As the NBA playoffs continue, he must compete with former Laker coach Pat Riley's success, not only on the court but also in the fashion arena. "It just so happens I'm following the fashion king of the NBA," Dunleavy groused good-naturedly earlier this season. His first year on the job, Dunleavy chose David Rickey & Co. of Costa Mesa to supply most of his court-side wardrobe.

With his groomed beard and two-piece suit, David Heil doesn't look like the comic stereotype of the lab-coat-clad mad scientist--maybe because he is a scientist as well as host of the long-running PBS show "Newton's Apple." Please, he says, no lab coats, no mad science.
