In the first 10 days after Donald Trump’s election, 10 acts of racially or ethnically-charged harassment and intimidation were committed in Philadelphia, and Pennsylvania had 36 instances in the same timeframe. Of the 10 incidents in Philadelphia, four of them were considered anti-Muslim and three of them anti-immigrant. The city also had anti-woman, anti-LGBT and anti-Semitic incidents, as classified by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Here's where these incidents happened around the state and how we compare with the rest of the nation.
Matt Rhule is gone. He's leaving Temple Football for a bigger job at Baylor in the Big XII after just three years with the Owls. He's not the first head coach to leave Temple for a better job. From Al Golden to Bruce Arians to Pop Warner, we tracked the Temple coaches back to the 1930s, including some small successes and some very lean years. Rhule's tenure with the Owls wasn't long, but his record — the only back-to-back 10-wins seasons in school history — certainly stands out.

The Eagles really need a No. 1 receiver. And a shutdown corner. And a lot of other things. With four games to go in 2016, the Eagles season has been over for a few weeks already. It’s time to go shopping for next year. But before we get to our holiday wish list, let’s clean up one very important thing: Doug Pederson is not going to be fired after the season. Probably. So here are five things that aren't a new head coach that the Eagles need for next season.
Fishtown is going bananas over its new crosswalks and stop signs at Frankford Avenue, Thompson Street and Shackamaxon Street. It’s a huge deal, and nearly a year in the making. So how'd it finally happen? It wasn't the work of one person or the result of one incident. It was dedicated neighborhood volunteers bugging the hell out of city government, and all those agencies working together to design an intersection that keeps everyone safe. Here's how it came together.
