    Why police haven't arrested the woman scamming Philly restaurants
    According to multiple reports, the scammer who tries to trick people into refunding her cash for a non-existent to-go order - the same woman Billy Penn wrote about on Oct. 30 - is still out there trying to cop cash for meals she didn't have.

http://planphilly.com/articles/2017/11/17/home-security-some-opposed-to-domb-s-bill-to-securitize-liens-on-tax-deadbeats

    Home security? Some opposed to Domb's bill to securitize liens on tax deadbeats
    WHAT WOULD "SECURITIZATION" DO? Domb proposes to securitize real estate tax liens. That would entail transferring all of the city-owned liens into a corporate entity or trust (created specifically for the securitization), which would then issue bonds - or debt securities, hence "securitization" - based on the anticipated income streams from those liens.

    For minorities, there's still inequality in the housing market
    According to a study released by Zillow this year, less than a quarter of U.S. homeowners are minorities. That low number, experts say, is the result of discriminatory lending practices, financial hurdles, and troublesome market conditions. - Caitlin McCabe, Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News

    SEPTA released a new mobile app Wednesday night. Called SEPTA beta, it's a major overhaul of SEPTA's oft-derided old app. Users will notice some big changes: A brand new interface, the ability to save "favorite" routes - like your daily commute - for easy access, and, probably most importantly of all, vehicle arrival time updates every 30 seconds.

    Twenty four restaurants, markets and stores were closed temporarily by the Philadelphia Department of Public Health between Nov. 1 and Nov. 15. Inspectors were busy in the last two weeks citing food establishments for a myriad of offenses. It's fall and while leaves are dropping from trees, finding them on cheese is never a good thing.
