    DNA story of when life gave us lemons
    All citrus fruits can trace their roots to the southeast foothills of the Himalayas, according to DNA evidence. The first citrus trees appeared about eight million years ago, before spreading around the world, say international scientists. The trees eventually gave rise to the fruit on our kitchen tables, from sweet oranges to bitter lemons.

Though he may no longer be a household name, Garrick is partly responsible for contemporary culture’s reverence of Shakespeare, as well as for the genesis of the Rosenbach’s Shakespeare collection which visitors may encounter while exploring of Dr. Rosenbach’s library.

    Will the First Blood Test for Concussions be a Game Changer?
    Here in Philadelphia, we're still relishing the thrill of long-awaited victory as the ticker tape from the Eagles' Super Bowl parade flutters from the trees. Even as we watched the game, however, we couldn't escape the ever-present risk of brain injuries in football, as several players suffered game-ending hits.

Rittenhouse Square tower plan tweaked to add hotel-length stays and $2.5M-and-up condos

Southern Land decided to offer stays of as little as a few nights at a time in furnished units within the 48-story tower at 1911 Walnut St. in response to demand for hotel-style accommodations in the upscale neighborhood, development manager Brian Emmons said in an interview Friday.

The company plans to open a sales office in the coming months in nearby 1845 Walnut St. to market the 54 units planned on the floors set aside for condominiums, which are being marketed as the Laurel, Emmons said. Groundbreaking is expected by spring 2019.

Use these icebreakers on 12 of the hiring companies at NET/WORK Philly

The Malvern-based mutual fund giant opened a Philadelphia innovation studio for research and development, at 2300 Chestnut, over the summer.

    When new companies come onto the Technically Talent platform, we do deep research to find out what makes them tick. So, with 12 of these companies attending NET/WORK Philly next week, it only made sense for us to compile this CliffsNotes of sorts for local job seekers.
