Philadelphians don’t exactly need another reason to love the Reading Terminal Market, the city’s one-hundred-plus-year-old iconic public market, but here it is anyway: The whole place is 100 percent self-financed.

Not only are the tenant vendors local, independent businesses, tenant rents and sales cuts fund 90 percent of the Market’s budget. The rest comes mostly from an annual fundraiser that brings in about $100,000.

The study found that state and local governments gave up $80.4 billion in incentives to “attract and retain” businesses for the purposes of “creating jobs.” It’s a number that author and local economy expert Michael Shuman is sure is actually much higher.

1985 saw the release of The Adventures of Mark Twain, the world’s first all claymation feature film, in which Satan starred alongside Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn, Becky Thatcher, and Twain himself.

Director Will Vinton, father of the California Raisins and Domino Pizza’s ill-fated mascot, The Noid, drew on some of Twain’s best known work, cobbling together a story in which the fictional kids stowaway aboard an airship Twain plans to pilot into [Halley's] comet.

...in North America alone, 2.2 million tons can’t be sold each year, and, thus, requires disposal. A team of engineers and scientists in Germany (which tosses out 2 million tons of milk annually) came up with a way to put that waste to use. QMilk is the name of their company, as well as their product: a biopolymer derived from the protein casein which has a wide range of industrial applications.

Revelations that Neanderthals lived in caves complete with hot water and plenty of food adds to a growing picture of the behavior of these early humans. In 2013, writes National Geographic’s Ker Than, scientists confirmed that Neanderthals carefully buried their dead, too. It seems that cavemen had better manners (and nicer living conditions) than some initially thought.

Scars of WWI

The village of Beaumont-Hamel, in northern France, was one of the fortress villages located just behind the German lines during the Battle of the Somme. It was here, on July 1st 1916, one of the most destructive battles of World War One took place where nearly an entire regiment of the Canadian Army was wiped out.

On the morning of July 1st 1916 the 1st Newfoundland Regiment of the Canadian Army was ordered into battle as part of the opening phase of the Battle of the Somme. Their assignment was to seize control of the German trenches near the village of Beaumont Hamel. It was a strategically difficult assignment. The German front lines were about 300 to 500 meters away from where the Newfoundland Regiment was stationed, down a grassy slope and heavily guarded by a three-tiered system of well dug forward trenches shielded with extensive protective wire, that... more »

Besides, the Germans knew when an attack was going to start.___

Today we are mailing a postcard!

36 years ago, on 24 August 1979, the first UN stamps in Austrian schillings are issued.

The idea of the United Nations issuing its own stamps was first proposed by Argentina in 1947. An agreement with the United States postal authorities was reached in 1951 and it stipulated that the stamps be denominated in United States currency, and used only at UN Headquarters (international territory).

The first United Nations stamps were issued in U.S. dollar denominations on United Nations Day, 24 October, in 1951. The stamps were an immediate success and sold out within days. Similar postal agreements were reached with the Swiss and Austrian postal authorities where the United Nations offices are located (Geneva and Vienna).

Eight designs were chosen by a special committee of experts for the first issue of United Nations postage stamps.... more »

Similar postal agreements were reached with the Swiss and Austrian postal authorities where the United Nations offices are located (Geneva and Vienna).

Eight designs were chosen by a special committee of experts for the first issue of United Nations postage stamps. The design entitled ”Peoples of the World” was selected for the 1¢ (maroon) and 10¢ (sepia) regular denominations. Designed by O.C. Meronti, Chief Designer of Thomas de la Rue and Company, Ltd., London, the horizontal vignette shows a group of five people, representing the people of the world, looking toward the United Nations Emblem rising over a peaceful and prosperous landscape. The text, “United Nations” appears in the five official languages as the border of the stamp. (Since 1973, Arabic is also one of the official United Nations languages).

Eat as much as you like and feel great about doing it. The annual Taste Of Venice returns this Sunday with nearly 40 local restaurants, coffee shops, juiceries and breweries featuring their best bites to fundraise for P.S. Arts, a local non-profit that provides art education to public schools.

This year the event moves from Abbot Kinney to the Lincoln Place Apartments—a midcentury "garden city" complex that was revived as a protected historic landmark and re-inhabited over the last few years. Large communal areas are what make it architecturally significant, and now that the multi-phase restoration is complete, look forward to more community events utilizing the space.

Take a look inside some of the world's most ornate water wells. Stepwells are India's unusual contribution to architecture and were built up to 10 stories deep to reach the water table. Neglected for years, many are now crumbling into obscurity. Journalist Victoria Lautman just spent several years locating over 120 of the subterranean structures and photographed them.

The artists' books that are found at the Binding Desire exhibit are not your average two-week library rentals. Anything but leather-bound; the books practically leap out at you from inside their display cases. A personal favorite of mine is Julie Chen's "Life Time" (1996), a letterpress-printed "tunnel book" that resembles a fold-out accordion, recounting the different stages of life in a literal "tunnel vision." The poem is both simple and poignant.

Marshall McLuhan's "Distant Early Warning" (1969) takes on the least traditional form of an artist's book: a deck of playing cards, designed to stimulate "out of the box" thinking and problem solving during the Cold War era. It was an open statement against the war and the air raid tactics being used by soldiers at the time -- almost a form of satirical propaganda -- but like... more »

It was an open statement against the war and the air raid tactics being used by soldiers at the time -- almost a form of satirical propaganda -- but like much of McLuhan's works, the message is in the viewer's interpretation. It is hard to pinpoint exactly.

102 million people were affected by natural disasters last year - and over 50% were children. Read about our work for crisis-affected children in our annual report.
