I've had friends get pre-recorded messages from different area codes claiming to be from the IRS. THIS IS A SCAM - BE AWARE! The IRS usually only contacts people by mail.

    Tax Scams Consumer Alerts | Internal Revenue Service
    The IRS urges taxpayers not to fall victim to tax scams. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

    5 Lessons from Black Panther That Can Save Our Lives - and Transform Black Politics
    In Wakanda, every action - -and indeed every person's path - -is anchored to a broader vision of communal liberation. The western trope of "rugged individualism" does not exist in Wakanda. Throughout Black Panther, the Wakandan's reject a "me" mentality in favor of a "we" mentality: every citizen is deeply invested, first and foremost, in the preservation (and liberation) of the community at large.

Did you know that 52nd Street used to be home to a Beauty Museum dedicated to the contributions that Black Americans have made to hair and beauty products? This museum is the subject of story #8 in our 52 Stories about 52nd St. series. Way back In 2001, Shirley Randleman created the Beauty Museum on 510-12 s 52nd St., which showcased how Black Americans and many Philadelphians influenced the beauty world. “We wanted people to know ‘Here is your history: there are people who have contributed and DONE and you can too!’ ” The artifact collection showcased flatirons, products, and even the first Barber licenses awarded to a Black woman. Although she had to close the museum in late 2007 due to both family illness and her own cancer fight, she continues to hold on to the artifacts. “Service is sacrifice” and Mrs. Shirley has gladly sacrificed for 52nd St.

    The Erdapfel, the oldest surviving terrestrial globe, does not show the Americas but it does include the mythical Saint Brendan's Island
    For many centuries, humans have put effort into representing the world as they knew it. The ancient Greeks created the first mathematically satisfactory maps of the world. A name to remember is Anaximander, believed to have drawn the first map of the world in the 6th century B.C., presuming that our planet was not spherical but cylindrical.

FYI- Inquiry Charter School's application process is open until March 10th (it's K4-5th grade). My daughter is in the K4 class there this year and we've been very happy with it. The K4 class is for students that will be 4 and a half years old by Sept. 1st. This K4 option has been great for us because our daughter was really ready for school but just missed the Kind cutoff. Many free preK options are income-based, but not this one. I also like that the K4 class is totally integrated into the rest of the school (shared recess, weekly school-wide meetings, before/after care). As a charter, it is a free public school accepting students from all over Philly. It is located right near the Please Touch Museum. They have a low cost before and afterschool program that is optional, but ideal for working parents. The school promotes their values: Curiosity, Generosity, and Growth. If you or someone you know is looking for a school - especially for K4 (preK) or Kindergarten, I would recommend checking them out. The application is simply a form on their website: http://www.belmontcharternetwork.org/ics/

    Inquiry Charter School | Belmont Charter Network
    At Inquiry, we believe that how children learn is as important as what they learn. Our methods encourage creativity, support problem solving, and produce life-long learners. We emphasize individual and exploratory learning with visits to such places as Fairmount Park and the Barnes Foundation as well as unique on-campus experiences.
