    Immigrants in the U.S. today face plenty of challenges, from the risk of deportation for seeking healthcare while undocumented to finding targeted support when it comes to mental health services. But immigrant communities and their allies are coming together to build up support systems that help provide relief.

    These Philly schoolkids marched against injustice 50 years ago, and police responded with nightsticks. Today, they inspire a new generation
    "The clubs were going in every direction," said an adult organizer of the walkout to bring reforms and more awareness of black students' concerns. Then-Police Commissioner Frank Rizzo ordered more than 100 men in full riot gear to charge students who had been largely peaceful. "The kids were helpless."

    CVS launches Philly apprentice program to find more pharmacy techs
    On construction sites, apprentice carpenters work side-by-side with journeyman pros. Now, CVS wants to take that same model to train pharmacy techs in Pennsylvania. In other states, pharmacy tech apprenticeship programs have reduced turnover, important in a tightening labor market.

A great writeup from Hidden City Philadelphia...

A great writeup from Hidden City Philadelphia on the Cret Illustrated Show hanging in the Hamilton Mansion. Come check it out at the opening tonight from 5:30-8:00

    Cret Exhibition Captures Vibrations Of The City
    Editor's note: Architectural drawing is a dying art. Before the digital revolution gave birth to drafting software, renderings of buildings, bridges, barrel vaults, and bell towers were meticulously illustrated by hand. And although most of the technical work done for architectural and engineering firms in the past left no room for emotion or expression, a human touch, and a physical object, remained.
