Steve Jobs never played a musical instrument and never sang publicly. But the mark Apple's founder made on the music industry is more significant than many hall-of-famers.

  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA
started: 10/06/11 6:15 am | updated: 10/06/11 6:15 am
A bill requiring all city employers to provide paid sick leave was vetoed by Mayor Nutter in June, but a different plan received City Council committee approval this week.

The bill, which would require the city and employers with city contracts, funding or leases, to provide up to seven earned sick days a year and would be a part of the living-wage and benefits law.

This bill affects fewer employers, is different from the previous bill and this plan, has nine... Read More
DRPA Bridge Traffic Down
  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA

Bridge traffic is at the lowest level in more than a decade, projected to dip to 50 million vehicles this year. The peak was 55 million in 2007.

Phillies and Eagles - Great Players, Different Results?
  by: iradiotom - Philadelphia, PA
started: 10/04/11 9:17 am | updated: 10/04/11 9:17 am
The Phillies have delivered on the season of big promise. The pitching staff that graced the cover of Sports Illustrated at the beginning of the season delivered 102 wins despite injuries. What about the Eagles? In the pre-season they picked up some of the best free agents in football. Some fans even labeled it a Dream Team. However the Eagles results so far are nothing to dream about. Putting good, high paid players together on the roster does not guarantee success. If it was that easy,... Read More
