Do you know a leader of color doing great things in the city of brotherly love and beyond? Nominate them for Generocity's 2018 Leader List 👏🏽😁

    Nominate a Philly leader of color to be recognized in Generocity's 2018 Leader List - Generocity Philly
    For the past three summers, Generocity has spent one dedicated month reporting on people of color doing important work in Philadelphia's social impact sector. We do this year-round, of course, but the goal behind "leaders of color month" of each year's editorial calendar is to highlight diversity in the communities we cover - nonprofits, philanthropy, social enterprises, local government and the like - even more than we usually do.

It#39;s time to get back in the studio! Vadim K re-ups an exciting new round of DIY Recording - a program seeking to democratize the recording process by educating, equipping and empowering the DIY recording community. This new session is in two parts. From the Event Page : In this first of two sessions we will be recording a song. We will work together to: Set up our "studio" by learning about how to connect microphones to interfaces to computers, etc., Set up our microphones to best capture the sound we#39;re looking for Learn about how and when to use click tracks, DAW grids and other useful tools. Track multiple instrument and vocal parts Learn some best practices for managing your DAW session efficiently and not getting lost. In the second session (which will take place the following Saturday), we will edit, mix, and master the track we recorded to create a finished product! ATTENTION: We are still looking for musicians that want a song recorded as part of these sessions. You must have a song that has music and lyrics. Just an acoustic guitar and vocals is fine! The team will help add other instruments. If you or someone you know would like to have a song recorded and mixed for FREE, please reach out to Vadim . If all else fails, we can record a cover but it would be way more fun to do an original. Saturday 7/21/2018 at 2:00 PM Music Department Free Library of Philadelphia, First Floor 1901 Vine Street, Philadelphia, PA 19017 This is a FREE program!

    Listen to the Mournful Wails of Planets and Moons
    Before NASA's spacecraft burned up in Saturn's atmosphere in September 2017, it captured a massive trove of data, including striking close-ups of the planet and images of its cosmic neighborhood. ( And ours.)

Happy Bastille Day from The Franklin Institute. Benjamin Franklin served as the United States Ambassador to France from 1776 until 1785. As ambassador to France, he was in charge of securing aid for the American Revolution from abroad and forming an alliance with the French, both of which were instrumental in the success of American independence efforts. Due to his wit, charm and reputation as a renowned intellectual, Franklin was beloved there and charmed the French with his uniquely American style, especially his iconic fur hat. http://bit.ly/1SkrJX6 IMAGE: The reception of Benjamin Franklin in France | 1888 | The Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.
