    Former Vice President and Penn professor Joe Biden published an essay criticizing the Trump administration for its inaction against Russian interference in American politics, calling on Congress and American citizens to "protect Western democracy."

Hello, tonight my small Yorkie named Josie got loose in the area tonight at about 5. I am out of town and she was staying with a friend. She is black and silver, weighs 15 pounds, is wearing a blue and white sweater, and has a blue harness with her name tag and microchip. If anyone in the community has seen her, she got away near broad and Mifflin and ran towards East Passyunk. I am horribly worried and feel helpless being out of town. If there are any sitings of her, she moves quickly and is probably very scared. Please call me at 914-582-0784.

Congratulations, Brewery ARS!

    The 10 Best Brewery Taprooms and Brewpubs (2017)
    It was another banner year for craft beer. As macro breweries continue to acquire new brands, craft breweries are opening at an incredible rate. There are now more than 5,000 craft breweries nationwide, meaning most Americans live within 10 miles of one. As a result we're all spending a lot more time in brewery taprooms and brewpubs.

    Trump's repeal of DACA: inside the movement to support Penn's "dreamers" in 2017
    The Penn community navigated many immigration policy changes this year, one of the biggest being Trump's announcement to discontinue the Deferred Action for Arrivals program by March 2018. The program, which was enacted as an executive order under former President Barack Obama, protects 790,000 "dreamers" who entered the country without proper documentation as children.
