Targets of poaching and victimized by a lack of prey, as few as 3,500 snow leopards roam the entire world. For zoophiles, it's a familiar battle - a struggle to save the endangered species one new cub at a time. Or, in Philadelphia's case, two at a time. In a first, two snow leopard cubs have been born at the Philadelphia Zoo, officials announced Wednesday. "They're precious, precious, precious children," said Tammy Schmidt, the zoo's curator of carnivores. "It's an honor for us as a zoo when it's an endangered species.

AFTER the Tuesday-night shooting that killed three teens, an outraged Mayor Nutter had a few choice words to share outside City Hall. Some viewers of Fox 29 Wednesday night were surprised to hear one of those words on TV. Here's the mayor's quote as captured on a YouTube video ( www.philly.com/philly/video/137177578.html ): "The first way for young people to stop this stuff is for young people to be home, where they're supposed to be home, and for adults not to act like idiots and a - - holes out in the streets of our city shooting at kids in a car. " The mayor has no regrets or apologies, said Nutter spokesman Mark McDonald.

Charges against a West Philadelphia man seen in a YouTube video being whacked repeatedly by baton-wielding officers were upheld yesterday after one of the cops testified that Askia Sabur assaulted him. Officer Donyule Williams testified that he has been out of work since Sabur's violent Sept. 3 arrest. Williams said that Sabur bit him and that he suffered a torn leg muscle and injured his left shoulder. His partner, Jimmy Leocal, needed surgery on his hand. Williams testified at Sabur's preliminary hearing that on the night of the incident, he and Leocal were searching for a man who shot at a day-care center the day before when they saw eight to 12 people standing at Lansdowne Avenue and Allison Street.

Last week, the principals of Lower Merion's two public high schools explained in a letter to parents that they had learned of a YouTube video showing students engaged in "binge drinking, marijuana use, substance-induced violence and several dangerous situations involving drugs and alcohol in vehicles. " The letter warned of significant consequences for students (e.g., suspension from athletic teams) caught on camera engaging in such activities. The administrators added that this would be the case "even if they haven't had a sip of beer, but are found to have been 'in the room' at a party where alcohol is served.

The Slinky, that spring thing that walks down stairs, was invented in Philadelphia nearly 60 years ago, but it still has surprises up its helical sleeve. And we're not talking new novelties à la the Slinky Dog or Slinky eyeballs. A Slinky amazingly "walks" on a treadmill for minutes, flopping and flipping along, even self-correcting its course, on a YouTube video that has been seen more than 3.3 million times in just two months. Now comes some cool slo-mo of another freaky trick — how a Slinky seems to momentarily hang in mid-air as if it has some anti-gravity power.

The central Pennsylvania voting machine shown Tuesday in a YouTube video recording a vote for President Obama as a vote for Republican challenger Mitt Romney was broken and has been fixed, a state official said. The video, reminiscent of a 2008 parody on The Simpsons, went viral and attracted national media attention as it raised concerns about voting-machine fraud. YouTube user "centralpavote," who posted the video, wrote that when he tried to cast a ballot for Obama, the light in the voting booth lit up for Romney.

Jon Hauptman started an unusual business — holster making — about a year ago in a most unorthodox way: He disclosed virtually all his trade secrets in one YouTube video after another, after another. In some, he did something else seemingly self-destructive: He encouraged viewers to make their own holsters, if they were so inclined. What followed was not a crash-and-burn of Hauptman's start-up, but a groundswell of support from those who watched his videos and were moved to help him get PHLSTER off the ground.
