Jaimee Drakewood hurried in from the rain, eager to get to her final appointment at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Ever since her birth 23 years ago, a team of researchers has been tracking every aspect of her development - gauging her progress as an infant, measuring her IQ as a preschooler, even peering into her adolescent brain using an MRI machine. Now, after nearly a quarter century, the federally funded study was ending, and the question the researchers had been asking was answered.

The Chester County Hospital and Health System said Friday that it will join the University of Pennsylvania Health System. Chester County announced in August that it would search for a partner after management decided that the $150 million to $275 million needed over the next decade to fulfill its vision for the institution was more than it could get on its own.

When Rebecca Kolodziejczak left her full-time job as a hairstylist to become a full-time student at the University of the Arts - specializing in wood crafts - some thought the transition strange. She disagreed. "Manipulating hair is just like manipulating any other natural material. That's all we're doing," said Kolodziejczak, 29, who will graduate with her bachelor's degree this year. "We're worried about balance, composition, aesthetics, style, functionality. All of those things cross over.

The University of Pennsylvania and Amazon.com are being sued by the mother of a student who killed herself in 2013 with cyanide she allegedly purchased through the online retailer.

Singh's life began to unravel after an alleged sexual assault in 2011 by a male student that she reported to authorities, the suit says. No charges were filed against the student, and he remained on campus.

On a July day with temperatures in the mid-90s, the breeze rushing through the unfinished 46th floor of the FMC Tower at Cira Centre South provides little relief. No matter. The views on every side are spectacular, to say the least, and make other high-rises near this one at 30th and Walnut Streets - with the exception of the new Comcast tower directly east - look very small. That includes the 33-story Evo apartments next door, which, with Cira Green, the parking garage with a one-acre park on its top - are both completed and in use. All comprise the nearly $700 million Cira Centre South project that is a large part of the eastern gateway to Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania.

Hillary Clinton kicked off her general election campaign and bus tour through battleground states Friday at a rally in Philadelphia by comparing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to a king, while also arguing that the historic nature of her candidacy showed the goodness and potential of America. "Nobody who looked like me was thought to be possible to run for president" when the country was founded, Clinton told a few thousand supporters at Temple University, a day after she became the first woman to accept the presidential nomination of a major U.S. party.

Hillary Clinton will have two huge tasks when she addresses the Democratic National Convention as its nominee for president Thursday night: first, loosen up a controlled demeanor that can come across as phony, and second, counter accusations that her presidency would extend the Obama administration's foreign policy. Foreign policy is a strong suit for Clinton in a race against Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who appeared to acknowledge that deficiency in choosing as his running mate Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, a former ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on the Middle East who has been to Iraq and Afghanistan.

By Matt Bergheiser Imagine applying to 42 jobs in three months and not landing a single interview. Imagine what it feels like to realize that even jobs at the lowest rungs of the career ladder require online applications when you haven't turned on a computer in years. Imagine being so desperate for income that you'll ride two trains and a bus for a chance at back-breaking day labor that might not even materialize. This story line is typical for citizens returning from prison, as a criminal conviction is often a career-ender, creating devastating impacts for individuals, families, and communities.

The Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education's board of governors on Thursday approved a $178 tuition increase for state universities this fall - the smallest hike in nine years. Full-time in-state students will pay a base tuition rate of $7,238 a year for the 2016-17 academic year, up from $7,060 last year. Holding the increase to 2.5 percent increase was possible because the state-supported universities have cut nearly $300 million from their expenditures over the last decade, said Kenn Marshall, system spokesman.
