    'People realized smog could kill': Legacy of 4 deadly days in Donora, Pa.
    It wasn't unusual for smog to hang over the town of Donora, 27 miles south of Pittsburgh on the bank of the Monongahela River, in the mornings. But on Oct. 26, 1948, it just grew thicker and thicker. And people began to die.

    How do you fix a bad pothole in Philly? Graffiti, apparently
    This time of year is notorious for potholes, and there seems to be even more of them than usual. If you live literally anywhere in Philly, chances are you can name at least four road craters giving your neighborhood trouble.

    Recess Lab
    Even small changes on the playground help students develop confidence, build social and leadership skills, and get the "brain break" needed for academic success. A report from the Institute of Medicine found that children who are more active "show greater attention, have faster cognitive processing speed, and perform better on standardized academic tests than children who are less active."

    Penn study finds most black men with trauma aren't getting treatment
    During a typical visit to the emergency room, most patients encounter doctors who will do everything they can to address physical symptoms as quickly as possible. But gunshot wounds and other injuries often come with psychological health issues, too, such as anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, or anger that's hard to manage.

Never give out financial info over the phone.

    As Tax Day Approaches, Watch Out For Phone Scammers
    It's not every day that the Pennsylvania State Police call to say they have a warrant out for your arrest. But that's exactly what happened to me in late March. At least, that's what the caller said was happening.
