    The Best Places to Eat in West Philly and University City
    With everything from brewpubs to Ethiopian cafes, West Philly has a wealth of places just waiting to feed you. West Philly is Philly's most perfect food neighborhood: It's our culinary laboratory, where one-offs and wild knots of Asian and African cuisines feed the neighbors and try to make their marks.

    When District Attorney Larry Krasner met with West Philly residents Wednesday night, he watched several people cry. One woman shed tears while speaking about her son, who she said has been incarcerated for two years and has yet to face a trial.

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.

    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!
