A Few Links the Morning After

Hybrid laser-scan/panorama photographs may be used to help rebuilt Notre-Dame: Vassar Professor Andrew Tallon uses laser scanners to make incredibly detailed maps of ancient structures such as Notre-Dame cathedral, accurate to half a centimeter, originally to try to understand the methods of ancient builders. But his scanning maps (which he merges with panoramic photographs) of Notre-Dame could well be invaluable in the rebuilding and reconstruction process. Because Andrew clambers around on led...

Is Alain Vigneault The Right Coach For The Philadelphia Flyers?

from Mike Sielski of, So let’s consider those factors. Vigneault will be the Flyers’ fifth head coach since the beginning of the 2013-14 season, which was less than six years ago. Over that span, they have reached the playoffs just three times and have not advanced beyond the first round. And last fall, by firing general manager Ron Hextall and, later, coach Dave Hakstol, they abandoned the lengthy, gradual process that Hextall, rightly, had decided was necessary to rebuild and...

Notable new advocacy against a "soft-on-crime prosecutorial agenda"

Kimberly Guilfoyle has this notable new Hill commentary under the headline "Avoid the slippery slope of 'soft-on-crime' policies that progressives want." Much of the piece is focused on immigration policy, but other domestic crime and punishment issues are covered, as revealed by these excerpts: The liberal wing of the Democratic Party is adamant on upending decades of sound law enforcement policies in favor of a radical progressive approach.  Open borders, weak-on-crime prosecutors, and drug i...

Stereotypes about Philadelphians

There are many stereotypes about Philadephians going around, some which can be unnervingly accurate. Yes, we are weirdly aggressive about sports teams, but we are not all that we are made out to be. Here are 10 things people get wrong about Philadelphians. 1. We don’t take kindly to strangers. Philadelphians are friendly and fun to be around. Just don’t say anything stupid about sports and we won’t act like the jerks that you think we are. 2. All we do is drink beer on our off time. We al...

When the MAX Was Grounded, American’s Scheduling Team Had a Big Problem to Solve

On March 13, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) relented and made the decision to ground all 737 MAX aircraft flying in the US. As the last country to do so, this effectively meant the MAX was grounded worldwide as of that day. Here we are more than one month later and the airplane is still not flying. In fact, American just extended its cancellations over this past weekend through August 19. For the airlines that operate the MAX, the grounding presented an enormous problem. How co...

Back in Miami, Realmuto says he’s glad to be in Philly

MIAMI (AP) — J.T. Realmuto sat in the visiting dugout before Friday night’s game at Marlins Park, surveyed the surroundings and noted he wasn’t the only one to depart last offseason.

Dan Bylsma Could Be A Head Coach Candidate For The Philadelphia Flyers

from Sam Carchidi of, Dan Bylsma has directed a team to a Stanley Cup championship and has a connection with general manager Chuck Fletcher, making him a candidate for the Flyers’ coaching job. How strong of a candidate? Fletcher won’t say.... It would be ironic if he was hired because Bylsma was despised by Flyers fans when he coached the hated Penguins. Remember when Flyers coach Peter Laviolette called Bylsma “gutless” after he put his tough guys on the ice a...

‘No More All-White Seasons’ — Activists Slam One Of Philly’s Largest Nonprofit Theatres

“Titled ‘No More All-White Seasons,’ the [open letter on Facebook] praises the [Philadelphia Theatre Company’s] current 2018-19 season for its diversity — then condemns a lack of it in the theater’s upcoming 2019-20 season [of three plays]. In the process, it points to the sometimes acrimonious diversity debate underway at local and national theaters.” – The Philadelphia Inquirer

Mike Muscala reflects on trade, injuries and disappointment with the Lakers

LOS ANGELES — He doesn’t have Instagram, and he hasn’t tweeted in months. For Mike Muscala, withdrawing from social media is probably a blessing. Since he joined the Lakers in February just before the the trade deadline, the deal that brought the 27-year-old in exchange for young, promising center Ivica Zubac has been hammered. He was brought in to space the floor and hopefully help spark a playoff run, but as both those ambitions fell off, Muscala has become a target of, and ammunition for, wit...

Scott Gordon’s Job Next Season Still Up In The Air

from Sam Donnellon of the Philly Daily News, Scott Gordon can be comfortable any place you put him. As the coach of the Phantoms. As the head coach of the Flyers. In limbo. That’s where the Flyers’ interim coach is currently, a point both he and general manager Chuck Fletcher made perfectly clear in back-to-back interviews Monday, as the team began the process of addressing and filling the team’s needs after yet another unfulfilling season. Fletcher and Gordon met for 10 m...

What The Philadelphia Flyers Need

from Sam Carchidi of, No one cares more than No. 28. No one takes losses harder. But — and you knew a but was coming, didn’t you? — I’m now of the belief the Flyers need more from their leadership group, Giroux included. Now that Wayne Simmonds is no longer here, the Flyers need a veteran who will get in the face of his teammates when needed. That’s not Giroux’s style. He played good cop and Simmonds was the bad cop. From here, not only do the Flyers need to add...

Five Videos: Papa Jo Jones

Few drummers make me smile more than Jo Jones. Jones began jazz drumming professionally in the 1920s and first recorded in 1931 with Hunter's Serenades. Jones is probably best known for playing with Count Basie's earliest band in 1934 and recording with Basie starting in 1936. He was one of the first drummers to make use of the brushes and among the first to steer timekeeping away from the bass drum and turn that job over to the hi-hat cymbal, producing what today is jazz's familiar modern soun...
