Here in Philly, cheesesteaks are a civic icon, a tourist draw and a cultural obsession. Often imitated around the world, the cheesesteak is rarely duplicated successfully outside of Philadelphia. Everyone agrees that the cheesesteak, the celebrated Philadelphia sandwich invented by Pat Olivieri in 1930, should be made with chopped beef and melted cheese. But opinions […]
Union members rallied Saturday at the intersection of Broad Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue with the message of raising the state’s minimum wage.
Several hundred 32BJ Service Employees International Union members turned out for the “Fight for 15,” a rally to try to get the minimum wage up to $15/hour:
“Fifteen dollars is really the difference between being working poor and being working class. It’s the difference between needing two jobs and having one job so you can spend time with your family,” said union vice president Gabe Morgan. “The root of many of the problems in the city and our country is that people can’t provide for themselves and their families.

Donald Trump threatened Saturday to bring Gennifer Flowers, with whom Bill Clinton admitted to having a sexual relationship decades ago, to Monday’s presidential debate.
The taunt is a response to prominent Trump critic Mark Cuban’s plans to sit in the front row of the debate at the invitation of Hillary Clinton’s campaign. It’s the Republican nominee’s latest public reference to the 42nd president’s infidelity, which he has occasionally cited in his campaign to criticize his Democratic challenger.
“If dopey Mark Cuban of failed Benefactor fame wants to sit in the front row, perhaps I will put Jennifer Flowers right alongside of him!” Trump tweeted Saturday afternoon.
He soon deleted the original message and tweeted again with the correct spelling of Flowers’ first name.
Cuban quickly shot back via Twitter, mocking Trump for allegedly referring to the two of them as the “Bobbsey Twins,” a term referencing the long-running children’s book series about wholesome siblings.
“Donald. Remember when you told me on the phone we were “Bobbsie Twins” and I laughed ? #truestory,” wrote Cuban.
A message left with Flowers through a website she operates was not immediately returned.

Founded in 1964 by John Fink, the ACRM began its work by providing hot food and shelter for a few men from a small storefront in Atlantic City. In 1975, a women’s shelter paralleling the men’s program was opened, and in 1990, the Bacharach Boulevard facility was expanded to accommodate 312 people. Over this time, the mission has added and enlarged programs to meet the growing and changing needs of those served from the Atlantic City area. Just some of the challenges these programs help people deal with are abuse issues, worker readiness preparation, and psychological issues.
Today, ACRM helps over 3,300 people in need per year, making it the largest provider of comprehensive services to individuals in New Jersey who are without a home.

Marion Cotillard’s husband Guillaume Canet has posted an impassioned plea on his Instagram page following the rumours his wife had an affair with Brad Pitt (Photo by Stephane Cardinale/Corbis via Getty Images)Marion Cotillard’s husband has lashed out at the press on his Instagram account, condemning the ‘venal stupidity’ of rumours linking his wife to Brad…
Guillaume Canet, a French actor and director who has been married to Marion for nine years, penned a heartfelt, albeit angry, post in French on his Instagram account this weekend, following ongoing speculation that his wife had an affair with Pitt whilst filming their upcoming Second World War drama Allied.
Marion, 40, found herself in the headlines this week after news broke that Angelina Jolie had filed for divorce from Brad, 52, allegedly after discovering his extra-marital fling with Marion, which has been vehemently denied.
And while the La Vie En Rose actress had already addressed the claims on her own Instagram age, whilst also confirming she is pregnant with her and Guillaume’s second child, he has now done so himself, pleading for the ‘shit’ to.stop.
His statement translated:
‘I do not usually comment on rumours made up about us … I do not usually talk about my private life, which until now I have always carefully protected … But the fury of the tabloids, the venal stupidity of some people calling themselves journalists, the hatred of some users feeling stronger behind a keyboard, push me to speak of the pride, the love, respect and admiration I have for Marion, for staying so strong and intelligent in the face all these stupid and unfounded accusations.
‘I think we’re all living with much more important things at the moment and now it is time to move on and raise the bar a bit.
‘Even if that is a lot of work for some people, I want to be positive. And as Marion said, I hope you become better and aspire to something else in your life other than constantly coming out with shit
Je n'ai pas non plus l'habitude de commenter les rumeurs faites à notre sujet… Je n'ai pas non plus l'habitude de parler de ma vie privée, que jusqu'à présent j'ai toujours protégé avec beaucoup d'attention… Mais l'acharnement de la presse people, la bêtise vénale de certaines personnes se faisant appeler journalistes, la haine de certains internautes se sentant plus forts derrière un clavier, me poussent quand même à dire la fierté, l'amour, le respect et l'admiration que j'ai pour Marion, de rester aussi forte et intelligente face à toutes ces accusations débiles et non fondées. Je pense que nous vivons tous des choses autrement plus importantes en ce moment et que maintenant il serait temps de passer à autre chose et d'élever un peu le niveau. Même si il y a beaucoup de travail pour certains, j'ai envie d'être positif. Et comme dit si bien Marion je vous souhaite d'aller mieux et d'aspirer à autre chose dans votre vie que d'envoyer constamment de la merde !

via Obama implicated in Clinton email scandal – New FBI docs — Aletho News
President Barack Obama used a pseudonym when communicating with then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by email, while her IT company referred to her email deleting as a “cover-up”, new FBI documents reveal.
The heavily-redacted documents, almost 200 pages, include summaries of interviews with senior Clinton aides concerning the private email server, and brings to light details previously unknown.
During the interview with Huma Abedin, who served as deputy chief of staff under Clinton, the FBI reportedly presented her with an email exchange between Clinton and a person she did not recognize. The FBI then revealed the unknown person’s name was believed to be a pseudonym used by Obama. Abedin reacted by saying, “How is this not classified?”
This exchange could expose Obama as having mislead the public on the issue, given his 2015 statement that he found out about Clinton’s use of a private email server “the same time everybody else learned it, through news reports.”
The State Department will not make public the emails Clinton exchanged with Obama, citing “presidential communications privilege,” as reason to withhold the emails under the Freedom of Information Act, Politico reports.
The documents also include interview notes with other senior Clinton aides; Cheryl Mills, Jake Sullivan and former Bill Clinton advisor Justin Cooper, who registered the clintonemail.com domain. Romanian hacker Guccifer and a number of state department officials were also interviewed.
The latest FBI document cache also refers to the engineer who used BleachBit to permanently delete emails from Clinton’s server soon after the House Benghazi Committee issued a subpoena for documents relating to the 2012 attack on the US embassy in Libya. According to the engineer, he did this “of his own accord based on his normal practices as an engineer.”
Documents show employees from Platte River Networks, the IT company who managed Clinton’s emails, referring to a request to wipe emails in 2014 as the “Hilary [sic] cover-up operation”. An employee told the FBI this was a joke.
Clinton aide, Bryan Pagliano, said concerns were raised about whether Clinton’s server created a “federal records retention issue” by state department officials in 2009 or 2010. When he communicated these concerns to Mills, however, she said that Clinton’s predecessor, Colin Powell, had also used private email.
The reports further reveal Clinton’s alleged ineptitude with technology, with aides claiming she “could not use a computer,” and didn’t know her email password.
Abedin said she had two computers in her State Department office, one for unclassified communications and another for classified communications. She did most of her work on the unclassified computer and would go “days or weeks without logging into the classified system.”
One redacted interviewee described himself as a “Clintonista” and said he
