"If local growth since 2009 was robust enough to make us just average, attaining the 2.3 percent growth rate of America’s largest cities, Philadelphia would have added 45,400 more jobs -- one homegrown Amazon -- on top of existing growth of 55,100 for a total of 100,500 new jobs." More in CCD President Paul Levy's op-ed on philly.com.

I knew him, Horatio: a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy…Where by your gibes now? Your gambols? Your songs? Happy Birthday Shakespeare! This famous scene from Hamlet dates from 1603. The two skeletons depicted here are from 1543 and 1560, respectively. The left is from Vesalius, and the right from Valverde de Amusco. All three are examples of reflection on mortality, known as Memento Mori.
