    A group of four assaulted, threatened and robbed a man walking in Washington Square West in the early morning earlier this month, police say. They’ve released surveillance images and video of the suspects, who are also wanted for a second assault and robbery in Society Hill just 20 minutes later. In the first incident, a 31-year-old man was walking with a friend on the 900 block of Walnut Street (near the Wawa) when he was approached by three men and a woman. He was struck several times and threatened with a knife. He surrendered his Gucci watch, his laptop bag and his passport, but…

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – If you’ve ever found yourself inwardly gagging over a Facebook “friend’s” relationship posts, take a deep breath and repeat this: They’re just insecure. Yes, a new study finds that those who frequently gush about their significant other on social media are – surprise, surprise — more likely to have low self-esteem. The research, which assessed 555 Facebook users who answered survey questions on the ‘Big 5’ personality traits (extroversion, neuroticism, openness, agreeableness and conscientiousness) as well as on narcissism and self-esteem, claims…

  • Are the Duggars Pro-Family — or Just Anti-Woman?

    The Duggars In general, I try not to dissect why I care about the lives of strangers on reality TV shows. Best-case scenario, I don’t have enough going on in my own life. Worst case, I have a sneaky crush on Dr. Dubrow that’s about to surface and cause worlds of pain and confusion. But 19 Kids and Counting has always been a little different. It’s hard to be a woman in 2015 and not be interested (or, in my case, morbidly interested) in the Duggar family, who are followers of an ultra-conservative brand of Christianity that adheres to the Biblical patriarchy movement.

    27 May 2015 | 7:53 am
    Forty years ago today, the Philadelphia Flyers won their most recent Stanley Cup. It was an incredible run for the franchise not 10 years after it was founded. The Flyers had won a Cup in just their seventh season, then followed it up with a second championship in their eighth. The Broad Street Bullies are still the fastest expansion team to win a Stanley Cup in NHL history. That nickname was well earned — the Flyers teams hit hard, fought often and were loathed by a lot of hockey fans. it was by design. Owner Ed Snider didn’t like seeing the Flyers get pushed around in playoff series…

That hasn’t worked out as planned. The Phillies acquired veteran outfielder Nate Schierholtz and he spent the rest of the 2012 season in Philadelphia before being allowed to walk away as a free agent. Catcher Tommy Joseph was probably the key to the deal, however he has spent much of his time in the organization dealing with concussion issues. But there was a third player picked up in that deal and…
