My reasoning? If you can find a dirty cop in Philadelphia, McNesby — president of Philly’s police union — is probably nearby, defending that cop and blaming the media. Yes, it’s his job, but his shtick sure seems old and counterproductive in an era that is (rightly) demanding more accountability and transparency from police.

    Another summer series has come and gone, and training camp will soon be upon us. Thank you to the 33 talented female writers who produced an amazing series. They volunteered their time and creativity for an epic task (just ask those who covered the Original 6). Plus, finding a word that starts with the letter X is not easy.

  • What We Learned: Tuukka Rask and the Bruins' workload problem (Puck Daddy)

    31 Aug 2015 | 6:33 am
    Toward the end of the Boston Bruins’ doomed campaign last season, people seemed to be harping on Tuukka Rask's workload with some frequency. Specifically, they felt it to have been far too big. He played 70 games, 67 of which were starts, and it was the largest number of his career by a good 20-plus percent. Indeed, in the last two seasons, he nearly doubled the total number of games played he'd racked up in his career, and was in fact busier than when he appeared in 36 of Boston's 48 games in the lockout-shortened season of 2013. What's interesting about this, though, is the fact that…

  • More adventures on the Wissahickon Creek Trail

    17 Aug 2015 | 8:05 pm
    There are many little treasures along the banks and trails of the Wissahickon in the Northwest section of Philly. One of these, a small statue of an unknown Quaker (he looks an awful like William Penn), which I happened to stumble upon today on my hike.Here's a small excerpt I pulled from the Friends of the Wissahickon official website that gives a brief history of the site:           Erected in 1883, this marble statue of a man in Quaker clothing is situated on a ridge on the eastern side of the Park just north of the Walnut Lane Bridge.

  • Wissahickon Creek and Forbidden Drive Trail

    19 Jul 2015 | 1:48 pm
    It was by chance that I stumbled on this place,  well sort of. We had visited the nearby and quaint Rittenhousetown about two and a half before with our child in tow. I remember seeing the trailhead and saying to myself "I'll be back someday to ride or walk that thing". And as it turned out, I did and so should everyone in the Philly area. It is wonderland in the woods and an amateur hiker's practice spot. And if you are hungry, the posh yet affordable Valley Green Inn is nestled about halfway down the trail. On the weekends, they sell ice cream, soda, and snacks out the back for the…

    Millions of regular Africans don’t enjoy being generalized as a poverty-stricken, war-torn people—and they are taking to social media to prove it. Think of Africa, and you might be more likely to think of war or extreme poverty than beach resorts, tech hubs, or the fact that the continent has three female heads of state. But a few months ago, a 17-year-old girl from Ghana launched a new Twitter campaign to help change skewed international perceptions.

  • The insanely slow road to building a blog (and why most people give up)

    Uristocrat
    2 Sep 2015 | 5:57 pm
    Building a successful blog is hard. There’s a lot more to it than simply creating a blog and writing your first post. For starters, readers won’t show up just because you’re writing. You have to tell people about your work if you want them to care. But a lot of what it takes to build a successful blog is just being good at showing up. Over and over. For a long, long time. When asked how he built such a robust online community with his blog, Jon Acuff’s answer was simple: “The same way you build an offline one.
