THE UNION is set to make what the club has deemed a "major announcement" in a noon news conference today at PPL Park. Both Union CEO Nick Sakiewicz and interim manager Jim Curtin are slated to attend, which suggests the announcement regards a roster move. Recent reports have pegged the Union as showing interest in Algerian World Cup goalkeeper Rais M'Bolhi, spotted earlier this month in a PPL Park box watching a game with Sakiewicz. M'Bolhi, 28, spent last season with Bulgarian club CKSA Sofia and has played in the last two World Cups.

T. MILTON STREET Sr. said he will soon add a new chapter to the sordid Pennsylvania political embarrassment that is Porngate - all thanks to a Harrisburg source he's calling "Deep Throat. " (Yeah. Let that sink in for a minute.) Street, who ran unsuccessfully in the spring for the Democratic mayoral nomination, said yesterday that he plans to host a news conference on Nov. 5 outside the District Attorney's Office to unveil more pornographic emails that prosecutor Frank Fina allegedly sent and received while he worked for the state Attorney General's Office several years ago. The emails are different from the controversial batch of exchanges the state Supreme Court made public in late August.

President Bush turned up the heat on Congress yesterday to pass his budget and tax-cut plan, using his first White House news conference to urge lawmakers to hear what he called "the message of the people. " Offering small jokes and appearing unpolished at times, Bush offered a sharp stylistic contrast to his predecessor. On substantive matters, however, he fielded a wide range of domestic and foreign-policy questions and tried to turn public attention from former President Bill Clinton's pardons to his own proposals to slash taxes and reform education.

News conferences have always been an ordeal for Ronald Reagan, and they have become increasingly unbearable for him as their frequency has diminished. Most of the President's 39 formal televised news conferences the past six years have been studies in frustration on both sides. They have frustrated Reagan by imposing demands on his conceptual understanding and command of facts he has been unable or unwilling to meet. Unlike several of his predecessors, Reagan is not hostile to reporters.

When one of the Democratic candidates for Delaware County Council called a news conference on open space yesterday, he expected the reporters to show up. He wasn't expecting the campaign manager of his opponents to be on hand with a rebuttal. David Landau, who held the news conference with State Rep. Bryan Lentz (D., Delaware), criticized the all-Republican County Council for not requesting any of the $2.7 million allocated to Delaware County from the state's Growing Greener II initiative.

Sen. Arlen Specter (R., Pa.) is scheduled to hold a news conference in Philadelphia today, two days after announcing that he has Hodgkin's disease. Specter, 75, most likely will seek to dispel any doubts about his ability to continue as senator and as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. The senator missed a committee meeting yesterday as he remained in Philadelphia. It is unclear when his treatment for Hodgkin's, a cancer of the lymph system, will begin. He is scheduled to undergo chemotherapy every two weeks for the next 24 to 32 weeks, according to his oncologist, John H. Glick of Penn's Abramson Cancer Center.

President Reagan had some trouble living up to his "Great Communicator" label last night at his first news conference in almost four months. Though he tossed off some sharp one-liners and made headlines with his remarks about "flaky" Libyan leader Moammar Khadafy, the President committed a series of flubs during his 35-minute session with reporters. Reagan got off to a shaky start at the podium in the East Room when he talked about the recent terrorist attack on the "Vietnam" airport.

Armed with a petition that had 472 signatures as of Friday afternoon, they plan to make their case against Lloyd at a news conference Saturday morning on the Chester County campus of the nation's first degree-granting historically black university.

The consensus on the Temple football team is that the 1-1 Owls aren't anywhere near where they need to be if they hope to approach the success they had last season. One person in particular who believes he needs to step up is quarterback Phillip Walker. The 5-foot-11, 205-pound senior has even more responsibility than a year ago, when strong senior leadership and production from the upperclassmen resulted in a 10-4 finish. This year's team is still feeling its way, looking for leaders and big-play performers to emerge.

The candidate was a woman of a certain age in a hard-fought campaign, and when she fainted in public, the pundits - mostly men - were unrelenting. No, not Hillary Clinton. We're talking about Philadelphia's storied "one tough cookie" - Lynne M. Abraham, the former district attorney who fainted under the lights during the first televised mayoral debate in April 2015. "I was watching and saw it and said, 'Hey, the same thing happened to me!' " Abraham said Monday, referring to the TV coverage of Clinton, 68, appearing to collapse as she got into a car at the Sept.

As a start to her fall campaign, Katie McGinty rallied at a labor hall with union workers and top Democrats, talking about creating equal pay and investing in education. "It's time for Pennsylvania to have a strong voice," said the 53-year-old former chief of staff to Gov. Wolf. She also sought to link her Republican opponent, Sen.

Camden City and Camden County leaders announced Thursday that a project to demolish almost 600 of the most blighted properties in the city is more than 85 percent complete, meaning it will be done within months of the timeline set two years ago. A year ago, officials had just started from scratch on the ambitious plan. First launched in October 2014, the project had been delayed for months because city officials struggled with drafting the contracts needed for companies to take on the work, and eventually the county stepped in to oversee the job. As Camden Mayor Dana L. Redd, flanked by representatives of the county, the city, law enforcement, and the business community, announced the update Thursday at a news conference in the city's Gateway section, a handful of people clapped hesitantly.

A man who spent 25 years in prison for a rape and murder that a jury concluded he didn't commit, Anthony Wright was emotional and tearful, elated and optimistic. Bitter, he was not. "I worship a merciful God and he forgives," Wright, 44, said at a news conference Wednesday, a day after he was acquitted at retrial in the 1991 death of a 77-year-old Nicetown woman. "Who am I to hold a grudge against somebody?" he asked. "I don't do that, man. I worship a merciful God. And I believe in him, and all the chips will fall where they may. We're here today because of that.

Of the biggest teachers' union in New Jersey: "I mean, this is a dreadful group of leaders.

Hours after Donald Trump said he hoped Russia had hacked into Hillary Clinton's private server and obtained some of her email correspondence as secretary of state, GOP surrogates sought to reshape Trump's message. "I'm sure what he means is they should be released to the FBI," former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said at a news conference in South Philadelphia, referring to the roughly 30,000 emails Clinton deleted, which she has said were personal in nature. The State Department had requested Clinton's emails to comply with a House investigation into the 2012 attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
