It's National CSA Week, the most popular time of year for fans of local food to join a CSA, support a local farm, and begin the wait for all that great local produce. Rambling Roots Farm and Z Food Farm both still have spots available to join their CSAs, and learn more about Tooth of Lion's herbal apothecary CSA and their flower CSA. So many ways to support local farms!

    NASA's Opportunity rover surpasses 5,000 Martian days on the Red Planet
    On Saturday, NASA's Opportunity rover celebrated a monumental anniversary all by itself on the surface of the Red Planet: surviving 5,000 Martian days. It's an incredibly significant milestone for the little-wheeled robot, given the fact that it was only expected to last just 90 days.

Where to Eat at Reading Terminal Market

The railroad that lent the market its name is long gone but Reading Terminal (51 N. 12th Street) has held on to become one of the oldest continually operating public markets in the...

This article has 1 other Philadelphia location (Show)

The original Termini Bros. shop in South Philly (1523 S. 8th Street) is a pilgrimage in itself, but for many Philadelphians it’s the Reading Terminal outpost that they know and love. No swing through the market is complete without a cannoli, the Sicilian ricotta-filled treat.

    Where to Eat at Reading Terminal Market
    With row after row of vendors offering everything from Pennsylvania Dutch pot pies to Peking duck, Reading Terminal Market is an international food hall with a decidedly Philadelphian flair. The jumble of sit-down eateries, to-go stands, produce shops, butchers, and bakeries at this 125-year-old spot make for a destination that's a favorite with locals and tourists alike.

    Feeling nostalgic? This Philly bar has a drink called 'The Obama'
    One first-time customer balked on the day of the Eagles parade, according to Augusta Mason, a manager who created the Obama cocktail when Parkside Beef & Ale opened a decade ago in a moment of yes-we-can optimism. "He said, 'It's the 'Trump Punch' now!'" Mason recalled.

Ever wonder why it is that so many storms seem to follow the route of Interstate 95? http://theatln.tc/2ohAjNG

    Why Storms Seem to Follow I-95
    The cities and roads are where they are because of what the Fall Line is: a more or less invisible, small, underground cliff-an escarpment-that marks the old edge of the continent. On the Fall Line's west side, the high side, are tough crystalline rocks; on the east side, the low side, are soft, easily moveable sediments.

What can you learn from the brain of a genius?

    Who Stole Einstein's Brain?
    Einstein's brain has been on a bit of a journey, and most people aren't aware of it. There's a lot of debate as to whether or not the late, famed intellect had a unique brain structure, but few would argue that the story that began following his demise is anything other than a cloak-and-dagger thriller.

    A boost for Democrats, Pa. Supreme Court dramatically overhauls state's congressional map
    The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has enacted a new congressional district map that onlookers say is much more favorable to Democrats, replacing one the court overturned and deemed an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander last month. Justices described the new map in their 48-page decision as "superior" to other proposals filed for their consideration.
