Video shot by passerby captures the incident near 8th and Market.

    WATCH: Man denies shoplifting, gets roughed up by security guards in Center City
    Here's what the public doesn't yet know: Whether the man seen getting roughed up outside a Center City department store on Thursday night had actually shoplifted. Here's what the public that saw a nearly two-minute video posted to Facebook does know: He vehemently denied the allegations as he got pinned to the sidewalk by a pair of security guards who hauled him back into the store.

"People might come to Hanford, Chernobyl, and Rocky Flats for a variety of reasons: to scratch a nostalgic itch, to experience a postapocalyptic vision, or even to reclaim, and acclaim, nature. They may come away with more." In the new issue of Distillations magazine, Rebecca Boyle explores nuclear tourism.

    Greetings from Isotopia
    The tourists are almost all smiling. Some wrap arms around companions or young children; others stand tall and give a thumbs-up. Members of an orchestra pose stiffly in matching blue neckties; a dozen retirees in white socks and tennis shoes beam for the camera.
