This Week! Join CultureWorks and Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance for "Power and Leadership: What's Your Relationship to Power"? On Thursday, June 28, we are covering the topic of power. In order to use power to effect positive change in our organizations, we have to develop a good relationship with it. Yes, power can be abused, corrupting, and hoarded. Yet power can also be helpful, edifying, and shared. What’s your relationship to power in your organization? What do you know about your own power? How can you shift your understanding of power to better equip you to lead? This workshop is designed to motivate leaders to stand responsibly in their own power. There are still a few seats available. Tickets are on a sliding scale, no one will be turned away. See you Thursday!

    PACA @ CW // Power & Leadership
    In partnership with CultureWorks Greater Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance (PACA) will offer a workshop series aimed at developing leadership capacity and skills. This month, we'll focus on: Power & Leadership // "The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any."

A reminder of some of the core tenets of public space development for urban designers to consider from Curbed, + a chance to retweet a great picture of The Porch at 30th Street Station.

    20 things every city can do to boost the quality of public life
    Urbanists have a new playbook: The Assembly Civic Design Guidelines, a new set of recommendations for the public realm published by the Center for Active Design (CfAD)-a nonprofit that promotes design solutions for improving public health-and the Knight Foundation. The CfAD's recommendations might seem like old hat: plant trees, improve public transit, build more bike lanes.

Philly housing trend: In some neighborhoods, adding a third floor 'overbuild' is going viral

Inga Saffron / Staff Four third-story additions on the 2200 block of Bainbridge show how popular the trend has become in Philadelphia’s most high-priced neighborhoods.

The 2300 Block of Waverly Street in the Fitler Square neighborhood now has a half dozen overbuilds.

    When trading up isn't an option, Philadelphia rowhouse owners build up | Inga Saffron
    Laurent Hedquist was single, and just starting his career as an architect in 2005, when he bought a two-story rowhouse in Bella Vista. Although it was small by American standards - about a thousand square feet - he felt like he was swimming in space.

Read Dracula in real time.* On June 25, Jonathan decides to take action. Noticing that he has never seen the Count in the daytime, he wonders if that is when he sleeps. In the burial vaults of a ruined chapel in the castle, Jonathan finds Dracula in a box lying on a pile of newly dug earth, looking more dead than alive, with his open eyes staring out. Jonathan flees back to his room (so much for taking action). *The novel, Dracula, is comprised of journal entries and letters, all dated, so throughout the year, we’ll be posting a day-by-day account of the plot of Dracula.

Read Dracula in real time.* On June 23, at night Jonathan hears the Szgany workmen digging somewhere in the castle. A little later he sees the Count emerge from his window and crawl down the the wall, but this time Dracula is wearing Jonathan’s travelling clothes. While keeping watch later, the three vampire women try to put Jonathan into a trance, as they materialize out of swirling dust, but Jonathan flees, only to hear from the Count’s room, “a sharp wail quickly suppressed. A woman appears below the window in the courtyard and shouts up at Jonathan, “Monster, give me my child!” As she beats on the castle door, Dracula beckons the wolves. The pack descends upon the woman. “Before long they streamed away singly, licking their lips.” Illustration is the cover of the 1916 edition, published by Rider & Son in London. *The novel, Dracula, is comprised of journal entries and letters, all dated, so throughout the year, we’ll be posting a day-by-day account of the plot of Dracula.
