    Pickleball is agame to relish - Philadelphia Inquirer - Philly Edition, 2018-07-13
    By Bethany Ao STAFF WRITER Pickleball is the latest rage in South Jersey, where a Cherry Hill-based meetup group of players that started in June 2016 has exploded to include over 800 members. One of the country's fastest-growing sports, pickleball, which has nothing to do with pickles, is a combination of tennis, badminton, and table tennis.

Ever wonder if the National Archives and Records Administration has records of aliens and UFOs in our holdings? If so, you’re in luck! Our colleague Joseph Gillette, an Archivist on a cross-training assignment in the National Archives History Office, wrote a series about the Air Force’s Project Blue Book, as well as its precursors, Project Sign and Project Grudge. The purpose of these projects was to investigate the increasing number of unidentified flying object (UFO) sightings throughout America and determine their nature and any potential threat. This blog posted, entitled “INVASION! (of privacy),” is the first in a three part series which explores the Project Blue Book and discusses records of UFOs in the holdings of the National Archives! You can find Part II, “UFOs: Natural Explanations,” and Part III, “UFOs: Man-Made, Made Up, and Unknown,” on the Pieces of History blog here: www.prologue.blogs.archives.gov https://prologue.blogs.archives.gov/2018/04/09/invasion-of-privacy/
