“In New Jersey, the total number of ‘snowies’ reported in the past few weeks alone is approaching 10. An entire winter often yields one or zero.” http://bit.ly/2k88p4s

Located 13 billion light-years away from Earth, scientists believe they have detected one of the oldest black holes in the Universe. http://wapo.st/2AErV0d

    Scientists just found the oldest known black hole, and it's a monster
    Eduardo Bañados had three nights to spot something that might not even exist: a supermassive black hole close to the beginning of time. At the Las Campanas Observatory in Chile, perched high atop a mountain in the world's driest desert, he scanned for the signature of a massive, invisible sinkhole in the sky slurping up a whirlpool of brilliant, hot matter.

With the first significant snow anticipated this evening into tomorrow in the Philadelphia region this season, check out our historical weather information going back to the 1870s to see how this event might compare with the past. http://bit.ly/2kRHgT9

    Historical Weather Data for Philadelphia
    Benjamin Franklin was passionate about the weather and developing techniques for monitoring and forecasting weather. In 1743, Franklin observed that northeast storms begin in the southwest. On horseback, he chased a whirlwind almost a mile to find out why. "Poor Richard," aka Ben Franklin under a pseudonym, printed some of the first recorded weather forecasts.

    Urban Philanthropy in the Age of the Mega-Donation
    Mega-donations don't end up helping the parts of the city that need it most. Is there a better way to spread giving dollars around? Take a stroll through iconic public spaces like New York's High Line and Central Park or Chicago's Millennium Park. They are stunning.
