    Guide to 98th Thanksgiving Day Parade in Philadelphia
    The oldest Thanksgiving parade in the country is almost 100. This November, the 98th Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade will take place. For many, standing outside to watch the giant balloons and colorful floats pass by is a family tradition. Others watch on TV from home, while preparing their Thanksgiving feasts.

For minorities, there's still inequality in the housing market http://www.philly.com/philly/business/real_estate/residential/minority-homeownership-black-homeowner-discriminatory-lending-zillow-barrier-renting-20171117.html

    For minorities, there's still inequality in the housing market
    According to a study released by Zillow this year, less than a quarter of U.S. homeowners are minorities. That low number, experts say, is the result of discriminatory lending practices, financial hurdles, and troublesome market conditions. - Caitlin McCabe, Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News

    New, easier-to-use SEPTA App offers real-time ETAs
    SEPTA released a new mobile app Wednesday night. Called SEPTA beta, it's a major overhaul of SEPTA's oft-derided old app. Users will notice some big changes: A brand new interface, the ability to save "favorite" routes - like your daily commute - for easy access, and, probably most importantly of all, vehicle arrival time updates every 30 seconds.

    Twenty four restaurants, markets and stores were closed temporarily by the Philadelphia Department of Public Health between Nov. 1 and Nov. 15. Inspectors were busy in the last two weeks citing food establishments for a myriad of offenses. It's fall and while leaves are dropping from trees, finding them on cheese is never a good thing.

    SRC votes to dissolve, taking first step toward local control of schools
    Many, including Mayor Kenney, have wondered aloud in the past if the dissolution of the SRC would damage relations with Harrisburg and imperil attempts at cooperation. Monson and Geary, however, said they noticed no change in lawmaker attitudes toward the formula change, even as the momentum gathered for local control.
