Buzz: Hey Marnie, what does "fair trade" mean on a wine label? I've seen it on coffee and thought on wine it meant the wines were made for fairs and conventions. Marnie: No, Buzz, it's a social-justice movement that promotes sustainability and equality for the communities that produce the goods we buy, especially in the developing world. Buzz: Wow, that sounds like something started by the hippies. Marnie: Not really, Buzz. A number of organizations provide certification on ethical standards and grant the right to apply a "fair trade" seal on packaging to inform consumers.

BY THE TIME Howie Roseman stepped away from his sizzling speakerphone Wednesday night, the Eagles had taken steps to get stronger in three important areas: quarterback, offensive line and safety. They'd added a linebacker to replace one they'd traded, and gained depth at corner. The count of defensive players who'd worked for new coordinator Jim Schwartz in Buffalo in 2014 was up to three. Not to mention, they'd moved up five spots in the first round of the NFL draft. It was quite a day, and it started early.

A YEAR AGO, the Eagles signed a shutdown corner who, it turned out, couldn't shut anyone down, and they traded their all-time leading rusher for a difference-making linebacker who ended up not making a difference. Then they signed the reigning NFL rushing leader, and that didn't work out very well, either. But it seems that when Howie Roseman moved his office back to the football operations area at NovaCare a few months ago, one of the tools Roseman brought back with him was a giant eraser.

One year after the Eagles acquired DeMarco Murray, Byron Maxwell, and Kiko Alonso as part of a high-profile offseason overhaul, the team agreed to trade them all on the same day. Murray will be dealt to the Tennessee Titans, his agency confirmed. Maxwell and Alonso will be sent to the Miami Dolphins for draft picks, according to league sources. The specific return on either trade was not known. The deals were reached on Monday, but they will not be made official until the new league year begins on Wednesday.

Asked last month what role, if any, he had in signing Byron Maxwell and DeMarco Murray, Howie Roseman avoided piling on Chip Kelly and steered his answer toward the future. If only Kelly was so kind when asked about Marcus Smith last March. "I think the best thing we can do is just move forward this year," the Eagles vice president of football operations said at the NFL scouting combine, "and talk about what's going on this offseason. " But in about five hours on Monday - the first day that teams could officially negotiate trades and free-agent acquisitions - Roseman's actions spoke clearly.

Brayden Schenn and Luke Schenn are more than brothers. They are best friends, and both say they miss being Flyers teammates. Funny thing is, their play has been elevated - especially Brayden's - since they were separated Jan. 6, the day the Flyers dealt Luke Schenn to Los Angeles.    In his first 22 games since the trade, Brayden Schenn looked noticeably more confident and had nine goals and eight assists - his best streak of the season. Brayden Schenn was asked if his increased productivity was because he was taking on more responsibility with his brother not around.

Flyers general manager Ron Hextall wants to make the playoffs this season, but he is also building the team for the long haul, so he would like to add some more draft picks. That's the quandary he faces with the trade deadline fast approaching Monday at 3 p.m. "I really don't know," Hextall said the other day when asked about the odds of the Flyers making a deal. "Kind of listening to everything. " Hextall said the Flyers were in a "tough spot" because they are in a playoff race but don't want to trade away youth (or draft picks)

Veteran defensemen Mark Streit and Nick Schultz will both be happy if the trade deadline at 3 p.m. Monday passes and they are still with the Flyers. General manager Ron Hextall is expected to be in seller's mode as he continues his rebuilding efforts by stocking up on draft pick. Streit and Schultz will be attractive to playoff teams. "I don't really pay attention to the rumors. It's part of the business," said Streit, who would be valuable to a contender like Tampa Bay because he can quarterback a power play.

American cocktail lore is heavy on half-stirred malarkey, but this one is true: In 1913, Theodore Roosevelt leveled a libel suit against a Michigan newspaper called the Iron Ore, which wouldn't stop calling the Rough Rider a sloppy drunk in print. When Roosevelt, several years removed from the White House, took the stand, he was grilled about his alcohol consumption. He described himself as a light drinker, insisting he'd enjoyed a modest total of two mint juleps in the years after his presidency - including just "part of one" prepared by Tom Bullock, the St. Louis Country Club's renowned bartender.
