Into what alien territory has the Democratic Party landed its spaceship this week? Democrats may think Philadelphia is reliably blue, but as for those South Philly blocks that jut right up against the Wells Fargo Center? "It's all Trump here," said Donna Di Bruno, 48, a teacher and a member of the great extended cheese family. She's talking with her neighbors in the shared driveway behind their homes in the 3200 blocks of Broad and Juniper. (Don't call it an alley. They say that makes the neighborhood look bad.)

A snippet of Zoe Scofield's choreography was seen last fall at the FringeArts Festival in a piece commissioned for Pennsylvania Ballet dancers. With her BeginAgain opening at FringeArts on Thursday night, Scofield and her company Zoe | Juniper present an evening length dance that ranged from tender and mysterious to fearless and mean, but always retained an eerie dreaminess of self and otherness. Visual artist and Scofield's partner in art and life, Juniper Shuey, makes up the other half of the Seattle-based Zoe | Juniper.

Let's cut to the big question: Should I change all my passwords? Answer: Yes, but not right this moment. Millions of people are asking the italicized question above. Why? Because a terrible thing has been happening to the Web, for two years, without detection, and it affects most people who use it. It's called the Heartbleed Bug. Its discovery was announced Monday, jointly, by folks at Google and those at a Finnish company called Codenomicon. We will explain the name below, but focus for now on the Bug.

PIECE BY PIECE, the six towering marble columns that for years had graced the Old York Road entrance to Albert Einstein Medical Center have carefully been reinstalled at the Logan campus. The Greek columns, each 24 feet tall and 3 feet wide, are known as the Strickland Columns. They had been part of the now-demolished Second United States Mint, built in 1829 on Chestnut Street near Juniper, which was designed by the architect William Strickland. The mint was sold in 1902, but the Ionic-style columns were donated to Einstein in 1904.

BUZZ: It's summertime again, so everybody's drinking gin-and-tonics. Ugh. Why anybody would drink something that smells like Pine-Sol is beyond me. Makes me queasy just thinking about it. Marnie: Believe it or not, Buzz, modern gin traces its roots to a 17th-century Dutch remedy for upset stomachs, among other ailments. Alcoholic tinctures of botanical ingredients were common medicines. Juniper berries were thought to help kidney problems, gallstones and the gout, too. Buzz: So how come people still drink it?

Alarmed by American policy in Iraq and other Muslim countries, a Philadelphia banker hopes to organize Americans around what he calls "a thoughtful response" to terrorism. "We have low growth, rising interest rates, oil has touched $70 a barrel, the federal deficit has reached historical highs, and we're gonna spend $1.3 trillion" on a war in Iraq that is creating "new generations of terrorists," says Richard W. Vague, chairman of Juniper Financial Corp. and former head of the nation's largest credit card operation.
