    Something about the California weather seems to agree with Penn sports teams. Penn women's squash went a good distance to Palo Alto, Calif. for a meeting with Stanford on Sunday, but jet lag was not a problem as the No. 2 Quakers topped the No. 5 Cardinal, 6-3.

    Toe the Line: Penn Democrats | Health care
    Few focal points of the Republican presidential cycle stood out with as much singularity and clarity as the promise to "repeal and replace" Obamacare, a rallying cry for much of the Trump electorate, regardless of class, race or gender.

Is “Gentrification” Going the Way of “Slum”?

200 S. Broad St., Suite 700, Philadelphia, PA 19102

    Is "Gentrification" Going the Way of "Slum"?
    When it comes to talking about urban change, words serve their purpose, until they are considered inadequate, wrong or just go out of style. "Slum" and "urban renewal" for instance. Usage of these terms peaked in the second half of the 1960s, but then faded.

What shut down Sbraga and The Fat Ham?

...week, Kevin Sbraga announced he was closing his namesake first restaurant at the corner of Broad and Pine. Most workers got the news that the dining room’s five-year run was ending...

This article has 1 other Philadelphia location (Show)

One of these was Sbraga’s Juniper Commons. The ‘80s-themed upscale “diner” was definitely never as busy as hoped (or busy at all, really), and the venture at the corner of Broad and South folded in June 2015, before it even reached the six-month mark.

    What shut down Sbraga and The Fat Ham?
    Blindsided. In their own words, that's how some of the staff at Sbraga Tuesday felt when they learned they were out of a job - effective immediately. Early last week, Kevin Sbraga announced he was closing his namesake first restaurant at the corner of Broad and Pine.
