His plugged-in friends said he was a fool not to buy health insurance on the federal marketplace. Mark Gaines knew they were right. He was, after all, a 26-year-old law school graduate. But if a judge had asked him for a summation of the Affordable Care Act last fall, it would have been a one-sentence brief. "I didn't know anything about it," said Gaines, who lives in South Philadelphia and was working part-time. "I knew that it was going to make [insurance] open to everyone and make it cheaper.

Sometimes, a fashion launch is just too enticing. Target Inc.'s entire website crashed Tuesday, the day the cheap-chic retailer launched the online sale of its limited offerings of Missoni for Target, a partnership with the Italian luxury knitwear designer. The collection, which ranges from plates to clothes, is priced at a fraction of the real duds. Items include a dinnerware set for $31 featuring the trademark zigzag patterns, $29.99 silk floral dresses, and $12.99 bath towels.

The City and Philadelphia Gas Works set up a website Friday that officials said will track the effort to sell the city-owned utility. The site, www.exploringasale.com , has sections on how a sale would affect PGW customers, employees and the business community, background material and an FAQ. Over objections of unionized gas workers and the city's public advocate, the commission that oversees PGW voted in January to hire a team of lawyers,...

Holly Phares was a mouse click away from becoming the first, and she was psyched. "I want to 'confirm,' " she proclaimed to the three people gathered at the Resources for Human Development office in Roxborough. Everyone stared at the screen bearing the words "Confirm and Save Your Health Care Plan" as Phares positioned the cursor and clicked. Since the health-insurance marketplace opened Oct. 1, RHD has not enrolled one client using the federal Healthcare.gov website. It wasn't for a lack of trying.

Four months ago, the healthcare.gov website wasn't looking so dandy to Ted Trevorrow. The insurance veteran and freshly certified Affordable Care Act navigator was shaken by the exchange's disastrous rollout and the cascade of Web errors that followed. "It took some luster off the ACA," said Trevorrow, speaking at Resources for Human Development's office in Roxborough. But these days much of that luster has returned to the site's bronze, silver, gold, and platinum plans. The website has rallied.

The black-and-white television news footage of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at Girard College is compelling, even after 46 years. King, at an August 1965 rally protesting racial segregation at the North Philadelphia residential school, leans down from the stage when KYW-TV reporter Tom Snyder asks him what recommendations he has about the segregation of Girard College and "settling our controversy here. " "I have said, over and over again, that there is nothing to do but to continue the struggle and to continue to keep the issue before the forefront of the conscience of the community," King replies.

THOSE HARRIED procrastinators who were hoping to file their city taxes online or access related forms on Sunday were met with an unpleasant surprise: Philadelphia's Department of Revenue website was down due to "routine maintenance. " Scheduled maintenance for the website occurs every Sunday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., but many questioned a routine maintenance the day before taxes were to be paid. "Why would you schedule maintenance the day before the deadline?" City Councilman Mark Squilla said Monday.

Temple University is shutting down AxisPhilly, the nonprofit public-service news website that investigates and reports on civic issues in the city, the university announced Friday. The website, administered by the Center for Public Interest Journalism at Temple, was started in 2012 with a grant of about $2.4 million from the William Penn Foundation, which has indicated it would not renew funding, said David Boardman, dean of Temple's School of Media and Communication. "We needed to do something," said Boardman, who added that the site was nearly out of money.

A CITY COUNCILMAN may be in hot water if he accepted charitable donations for a worthy cause but failed to alert the federal government of his philanthropic efforts. Councilman Kenyatta Johnson, whose 2nd District includes parts of Center City, Southwest and South Philadelphia, runs a group called Peace Not Guns, which aims to foster a partnership among youth, city agencies and community groups to stem gun violence. Even before he became a state representative, Johnson had a history of community service and advocacy, but a recent discovery about his self-proclaimed nonprofit organization has gotten him into some controversy.

MORE THAN once yesterday, Lewis Katz and H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest seemed more than a little surprised to still own the two newspapers and website they bought two years ago. An acrimonious ownership feud ended when Katz and Lenfest bid $88 million yesterday to buy out three other investors in the company that owns the Daily News , the Inquirer and Philly.com. "I would have bet anything I was cashing a big check today," Katz joked to employees after the auction. He then turned serious, adding, "I apologize to each and every one of you for being part of creating some of the chaos.

Have a complaint about L&I? A new website wants to hear from you. The Special Independent Advisory Commission, which is studying the way the city Department of Licenses and Inspections does business, seeks information from the public as it prepares a comprehensive report. Mayor Nutter appointed 17 people to the commission in October at the urging of city treasurer Nancy Winkler, whose daughter Anne Bryan was killed in the Salvation Army thrift shop at 22d and Market Streets on June 5, when the building next door collapsed on it during demolition.

Moving is on a lot of people's to-do lists as the economy improves, jobs change, schools let out, and older people look to downsize. Make it a little simpler with some planning advice. Lifehacker.com has a "start-to-finish guide for moving to a new place. " By Adam Dachis, this post is for do-it-yourselfers who want to - or must - take on the challenge of moving without professional help. Unless you're relocating from a dorm room, it's usually a really big job. But Dachis breaks it down into simple parts: preparation, packing, labeling, and moving in. Along the way, there are myriad issues, such as how to find cheap packing material, how to know if your stuff will fit in the new place, and how to talk a few, but not too many, friends into helping.

For anyone who hadn't heard, Lady B was shouting it over the air Monday afternoon. "I want to tell people one more time that today is the deadline, the deadline, the deadline to get your health coverage," Lady B, who is known as Wendy Clark in real life, told her listeners at Philadelphia's WRNB (100.3-FM). They heard. With triple the traffic of the previous record on Healthcare.gov, Monday had the potential to confirm wildly divergent points of view - that new glitches on the Obamacare website showcased the administration's ineptness or that the clamor for coverage proved that the president's signature initiative was on target.

The financial reality that the Mitchell family faced in 2010 was this: Their perfect home in West Chester had to be sold. Josh Mitchell, now 38, a self-employed contractor, had worked on the fieldstone rancher for 10 years. But a crisis involving wife Dawn's stationery shop - her partner suddenly pulled out - created debt, and when she became pregnant with the couple's third child, she closed the store. So they decided to create a new reality: They'd buy and restore a cheap house in a good neighborhood - luckily, just five minutes away, on the street where Dawn Mitchell's parents lived - and they would nearly double its 1,110-square-foot size.
