Happy Birthday to Alfred Maurer, who was born on this day in 1868. Maurer was an American modernist painter and a good friend of Dr. Albert Barnes. In “Still Life,” the use of bold colors and juxtaposition of decorative patterns remind us of a work by Henri Matisse, whom Maurer greatly admired. 🎨 Alfred Maurer. “Still Life,” c. 1909–1910.

    As the movement to overturn the rapper's 10-year-old conviction on drug and gun changes gathers momentum, a sworn statement long buried in sentencing notes complicates the picture. In the age of Trump, the fight to #freeMeekMill has sucked up as much media oxygen as any story could without an appearance by Trump himself.

Enacted in its current form in 2000, the tax abatement provides a 100 percent benefit for new construction and the value of any improvements or conversions to existing properties.

    The Fed: No sign of homeowners getting pushed from gentrifying neighborhoods - Philly
    Gentrification has become synonymous with the pushing-out of established residents by newcomers, but a study released this week found no evidence of displacement among homeowners in gentrifying Philadelphia neighborhoods. The study, published by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, researched the connection between tax delinquency, homeowner mobility and gentrification over the last two years.
