THIS SUMMER, when the world's eyes were on Philadelphia because of the Democratic National Convention, the Huffington Post went to North Philadelphia to visit the Strawberry Mansion Learning Center. The Huffington Post wanted to film a story on gun violence and had sought out a CeaseFire PA fellow, who suggested reporters go to the Learning Center. "I was excited," said Kevin Upshur, 57, the center's founder. "You have people who call you and want to tell your story - and really tell it in a way that can help you to help others.

The last week or so has been tough on CBS3's Katie Fehlinger. With all the online furor she's sparked lately , you'd think the TV meteorologist had been found guilty of some heinous crime or decided to run for president of the United States. The blonde bombshell did neither. Fehlinger got viewers and social media all worked up because she dared to appear on air doing her job while eight months pregnant with twins. Well, the TV viewers who are revolted and outraged by the sight of Fehlinger's enormous baby bump can relax.

NEW YORK - A lot has changed at AOL Inc. as it tries to shed the vestiges of its '90s image: the iconic "You've got mail" greeting and the promotional CDs stuffed into mailboxes across the country. The Internet company has engaged in an artsy rebranding, rolled out hundreds of local news sites, and in March bought the online news hub the Huffington Post for $315 million. At the helm is chief executive officer Tim Armstrong, whom AOL hired from Google to stage a turnaround. Armstrong has led AOL since April 2009.

YOU WONDER why anyone would want to run for president of the United States. Why, especially, would someone who has it made in the shade like Mitt Romney, with a good family, good health, good looks, good houses (a $12 million beachfront compound in the La Jolla section of San Diego and a $10 million home on Lake Winnipesaukee, in New Hampshire) and a net worth that he estimates to be somewhere "between $150 and about $200-and-some-odd million dollars," want to turn himself into a piñata for a year of ugly campaigning?

THIS TIME last year, it was Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, seriously wounded in an assassination attempt, who was wrongly reported dead by a slew of highly respected media outlets. On Saturday, it was Penn State's Joe Paterno. Of course, Paterno did in fact die about 12 hours after the premature reports on sites like CBS Sports and the Huffington Post, while Giffords is very much alive (and in fact made news yesterday by resigning her House seat.) But the problem is still the same: journalists under pressure to be first in the age of rapid-fire social media - and losing sight of the more important goal of accuracy.

Once upon a time in South Philadelphia, Passyunk Avenue had more gravy joints than foodie eateries. There was no hot social-media controversy about colonizing gentrifiers taking selfies while nibbling French food on the rooftop of a shuttered school building. That's because, back around the time when the ramshackle Philadelphia roots-rock band Marah released its album Kids in Philly in 2000, the millennial invasion that has generated so many listicles ("21 Ways Philadelphia is the Coolest City in America," quoth the Huffington Post)

It's buddy-up time in the blogosphere. Last week saw the launch of the celebrity-rich Huffington Post, with Quincy Jones riffing on the King of Pop's pain, Bill Maher celebrating Bush and biodiesel fuel, and Gary Hart asking how long we'll be in Iraq. More than 300 of what cyber-salonista Arianna Huffington calls "the most creative minds" of our country are bloviating on one blog. Within weeks, they'll have to make room for the Pajama people, a federation of nearly 300 bloggers who represent all angles of the political spectrum, but are joined by a common desire: to share ad revenue.

I'm looking forward to seeing Hillary Clinton make history when she's nominated for president this week at the Democratic National Convention. And I'm excited about the prospect of a Clinton presidency. Not just because I think Donald Trump is the wrong man for the job. But because Democrats and Republicans hate each other too much right now to come together - in Congress or in the town square. I think the impact of a female administration could get us playing nice again.

THEY TOLD US things were getting better in Ferguson in the year since Mike Brown was gunned down by Officer Darren Wilson and left dead in the street for an unreal - and inhuman - four-and-a-half hours. Surely, there's been some slow bending of the long arc of the moral universe; voters turned out strong in last November's election in the Missouri suburb and now its City Hall looks more like the population of the majority-black community, with two new African-American city council members and a black interim police chief to replace his fundamentally dishonest and discredited predecessor, Thomas Jackson.

Zooey: I was never really "adorkable" Truly adorable star Zooey Deschanel is tired of being called "adorkable" by fans, the media, critics, cats, dogs, pigeons, everybody. Folks, it's just a brand! Yes, Zooey tells the Huffington Post, the moniker is not some cute, whimsical description. It was created as part of a marketing ploy by Fox to sell her show New Girl four seasons ago. "I don't always identify, perhaps, with the way that I'm portrayed in certain public contexts," she says.
