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/

    Black Panther is one of the most important cultural moments in American history
    As you all already know, Black Panther set all types of records this past weekend, not just for Black films, and Black directors, and Black casts, and Black film crews...not just for all superhero films (although it did break several records for every superhero movie ever made), but Black Panther actually set several records for any film ever made.

    Abandoned in space in 1967, a U.S. satellite started transmitting again in 2013
    After learning that a satellite that's been silent for decades has suddenly started sending out new signals you may, of course, suspect that the device has been hijacked by aliens now trying to communicate with Earth. Perhaps they're warning us that they are planning an invasion!
