In 1796, when Thomas Jefferson was vice president of the United States, he received a shipment of "certain bones" found in a cave in Virginia. The bones and three claws, from an unknown creature, proved tremendously exciting to Jefferson, who at the time was also president of the American Philosophical Society, the nation's premier scientific association, founded in 1743 in Philadelphia by Benjamin Franklin. Examining the enormous claws, Jefferson became convinced they were concrete evidence that his young nation harbored lions more fierce than anything known to the Old World.

Hello there Every session of eighth-grade social studies at Newtown Junior High was another chance for Justin, whose family had moved from Lower Moreland to Richboro the previous year, and Erica, who had lived in Newtown all her life, to talk. But after school, his most important friendships remained those he'd made in Lower Moreland.

While we'll always love, love, love Donna Karan for the seven easy pieces that revolutionized the way working women dressed in the 1980s and '90s, it isn't a secret that the label has lost a bit of its luster in recent years. LVMH Moët Hennessy-Louis Vuitton - which purchased Donna Karan International Inc. for $239 million in 2001 - closed the Donna Karan New York flagship last year. And in April, LVMH hired Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, the designers behind the trendy menswear line Public School, to be creative directors for DKNY, Donna Karan's bridge collection.

Hello there On New Year's Day 2012, Cliff waited for Richard by the Christmas tree at 30th Street Station. They had "e-met" in an Internet chat room six months prior, and had spent a good part of every day since talking - even when the Martell Group, Cliff's production, marketing, and sales company, took him time zones away. Richard, who is now 68, lives where he grew up: Norwalk, Conn. The three-hour train ride to Philadelphia was nerve-racking. He had only started dating men about two years prior, and here he was going to meet one who lived hundreds of miles away!
