    Federal judges leave new Pa. congressional map in place for now - but fast-track hearings on it - Philly
    HARRISBURG - Republican efforts to block Pennsylvania's new map of congressional districts suffered a setback Friday, as a federal three-judge panel declined to issue an emergency order to prevent it from taking effect. Instead, they scheduled a hearing for March 9 here to consider arguments on whether they should block the maps from being used in the looming primary and general elections.

Winter Social Has Been Cancelled!!!!! We're sorry to say that on account of the unseasonably warm weather and rain this week--and the fact that this is the last weekend of the Dilworth Plaza Ice Rink this winter--the 8th annual Winter Social has been cancelled for tomorrow. We're already looking forward to next year when we can reconvene as planned, and on solid ice, to celebrate the mid-year mark with our school community. Please stay tuned for upcoming information about Bache In Bloom on May 10th, and the end-of-the-year Field Day--two great Bache-Martin social events already being planned. We apologize for the last minute schedule change and announcement. We were holding out hope for a deep freeze and no rain.

For #BlackHistoryMonth we're looking back at our last summer exhibition Mohamed Bourouissa: Urban Riders, now on view in Paris at Musée d'Art moderne de la Ville de Paris. In 2014, Algerian artist Mohamed Bourouissa worked with the Fletcher Street Urban Riding Club, a North Philadelphia community of young horse riders to stage an equestrian competition he called "Horse Day." Have you seen the Fletcher Street crew featured by Google Pixel 2? #flashbackfriday #fbf

    Google Pixel 2 | Fletcher Street Crew
    When you question your lens on the world, you'll find there's more to people than meets the eye. Part of a wider set of stories that encourage people to question their lens on the world, "Fletcher Street Crew" shows how first impressions rarely show the full picture.

    Corporate tax cut squeezes funding for low-income housing - Philly
    Low-income housing tax credits, which are sold to banks and other investors, are the nation's biggest source of funding for affordable housing. The reduction in the federal corporate income tax rate has made them less valuable, which is expected to translate into an even bigger shortage of residences for low-income individuals.

    Pa. Republicans are talking about impeaching state Supreme Court justices. Do they have an argument? - Philly
    While it's unclear what grounds there may be for impeachment - there was some disagreement among constitutional law scholars interviewed - all said the legislature should refrain from the attack on the judiciary. Judges are usually impeached for criminal or corrupt behavior, they said, and they could not recall a time when a Pennsylvania judge had been impeached over a controversial ruling.

Drawing is a girly thing. If this statement brought out strong feelings in you, this 4-week Barnes class is for you: “Drawing as ‘Feminine’ Practice?” tackles works by Degas and Picasso that were often dismissed in their day as “feminine” and less worthy than paintings. Join us as we explore several contemporary artists, including Kara Walker, Heidi Bucher, and Nancy Shaver, who use the medium to make powerful social and political statements challenging the notion of drawing as "feminine" and "weak." Starts April 9. Space is limited, Register today: bit.ly/drawing-feminine 🎨 Edgar Degas. “Jockey on Horse” (detail), c. 1866–72.
