    By Mike Dougherty CHERRY HILL, N.J. (CBS) — The planting of the cherry trees along Chapel Avenue in Cherry Hill is a tradition that dates back to 1972. Today, the project is in danger of extinction as the man who started it is nearly 80-years-old. The sun shines brightly on Joe Zanghi and two of his buddies from high school as they plant new trees and tie yellow ribbons to mature ones. Firefighters in the town also help out with planting, but as far as volunteers go, it was just Joe and his nearly 80-year-old friends this year. Zanghi started doing this in 1973, and he is worried this…

    16 Apr 2015 | 2:54 pm
    Looking back, the 1995 NFL draft was, well, not so hot. But the top 10 picks were a fascinating historical study. We had a trade involving the No. 1 overall pick, only the fourth time that ever has happened in the league history, and the pick — Ki-Jana Carter — turned out to be a major bust. He’s also the final running back to be taken first overall. Maybe for good reason. The expansion Carolina Panthers traded down out of that spot, down to No. 5, where they took quarterback Kerry Collins with their first-ever selection. Fellow expansion club Jacksonville Jaguars took Tony Boseli…

Out with injuries, Joel Embiid, Nerlens Noel and Jason Richardson took turns diagramming plays and added a little levity in what was another throwaway season in Philadelphia. The Sixers can only hope they start to fare better in long-term rebuilding plan team president Sam Hinkie has drawn up for the franchise. As expected, the Sixers were abysmal in the second season under Hinkie and Brown's watch - call it Tank 2.0 - and finished even worse than a year ago.

  • Charter Day 2015

    7 Mar 2015 | 7:56 am
    To commemorate the granting of the charter from King Charles II to William Penn in March 1681, which gave Penn the land that would become Pennsylvania, each year the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission holds an annual Charter Day.  To learn more and a list of museum that will be free, Sunday, March 8, 2105, I found this great article that explains what is Charter Day and why are some museums free.http://www.pennlive.com/entertainment/index.ssf/2015/03/what_is_charter_day.htmlhttp://feeds.feedburner.com/MyPhiladelphia

    Users and clients expect digital experiences to allow for social interaction. Because of this, digital design teams are constantly pushed to include social aspects into their products.

Designing a successful, usable and influential social experience requires thoughtfulness […]

The ease, simplicity, and speed are what really gives pod coffee makers their appeal. This isn’t going to be a pod coffee maker review, this is about pod coffee makers in general. I’ve used one many times before at the office, and I must confess, they are extremely convenient… until they aren’t. If you are looking for coffee maker reviews go to Matthew-Epstein.

  • Looking for The Best Men’s Watches Under $500?

    Carolyn Jeffrey
    30 Mar 2015 | 6:45 am
    Trying to find top-quality watches under $500 (especially for men that lead active and outdoor lifestyles) used to be almost impossible. Sure, there were a whole bunch of watches from a number of different companies available at this price point, but the overwhelming majority of these watches weren’t worth anywhere close to $500 – in fact, many of them probably weren’t worth much more than $15! Poorly constructed, poorly designed, and poorly implemented, it used to be almost laughable to spend anything less than a thousand dollars (and sometimes even more than that) on a watch that…
