DeLissio 84th Town Hall: The Future of Nuclear Energy tate Rep. Pamela A. DeLissio, D-Montgomery/Phila., will host her 84th Town Hall Meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 22 in the Wolcoff Auditorium at Roxborough Memorial Hospital located at 5800 Ridge Ave., Philadelphia. The discussion this month will center on the future of nuclear energy, the current state of the nuclear industry and how it compares to wind, solar and fossil fuels as an electricity producer. The implications of the discussion will impact the consumer’s pocketbook; both residential and commercial consumers will be impacted. It should also be emphasized that this discussion is time-sensitive as the nuclear industry has indicated that it needs legislation passed in June 2019. “This will be a good opportunity to learn about the implications of reopening the Alternative Energy Portfolio Standards Act of 2004 and better understand the debate on the state policy effort to address the needs of the nuclear energy industry,” DeLissio said. “As always, I’m looking forward to the dialogue with my constituents We will have representatives of the nuclear industry and environmental champions present to give their views on pending legislation. As I have mentioned at many town halls, the ‘devil is in the details.’” Folks from all parts of the 194th Legislative District are welcome, and more info can be obtained by calling DeLissio’s office at 215-482-8726 or visiting

GSK Science in the Summer™ Aims to Inspire Youth with STEM Learning through “The Science of Me” SK and The Franklin Institute are partnering again this summer to provide elementaryschool children with fun and engaging STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) learning throughout the summer months. In its 33rd year, GSK Science in the Summer™ will return to local libraries with its free enrichment program – this year themed “The Science of Me” – for students entering grades 2-6. Registration for this year’s programming across the Greater Philadelphia region began on Monday, May 13 online via, with Philadelphia county sites opening first. This summer, nearly 5,000 children in the Greater Philadelphia are expected to participate in GSK Science in the Summer™ at 152 local library sites. The program, which runs through August, partners with the Free Library System of Philadelphia and library systems in Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties to bring interactive science activities taught by certified local teachers to children in every corner of the city and beyond. This year’s theme – The Science of Me – will explore the biological systems that make humans fundamentally alike, as well as the elements that interact to create a unique individual, with activities that highlight digestive system, the heart, the brain, and DNA. “Programming for GSK Science in the Summer™ is carefully curated to include rigorous and thought-provoking activities that are age-appropriate and tackle questions that are familiar to elementary-school children,” said Becki Lynch, Director of US Community Partnerships at GSK. “Our goal is to demonstrate that by thinking about everyday processes – like what happens to food when you eat it or how your brain tells you to move – that you are thinking like a scientist, and this could be your future.” Created in Philadelphia three decades ago by retired GSK scientist, Dr. Virginia Cunningham, GSK Science in the Summer™ continues to inspire a sense of curiosity and a love of science in young children year round. While elementary school has been identified as a pivotal time of learning for students, the summer months have increasingly become a dead zone for learning and “summer slide” is now a common experience nationwide, with a greater impact among low-income and underserved communities. By providing free educational programming and exposure to topics in STEM, GSK Science in the Summer™ fills the gap, reaching more than 30,000 children annually. Additionally, GSK Science in the Summer™ coursework and supporting activities are made available online for parents, caretakers, and educators to experience and use all year long. “At The Franklin Institute, we interact with and engage children in science daily, but what makes GSK Science in the Summer™ special is its focus and commitment to bringing STEM directly to children’s neighborhoods. The program offers fun science activities right in their backyards, during a season that might otherwise be academically light,” said Dr. Darryl Williams, Senior Vice President of Science and Education at The Franklin Institute. “In STEM, the possibilities are endless with thousands of different interest points, topics, careers, and opportunities. Experiences like this expose children to just a fraction of that, and hopefully trigger a genuine appreciation for science.” Parents and guardians of students entering second through sixth grades in the 2019-2020 school year can register online for the program beginning on May 13, 2019, with Philadelphia County sites opening first. Registration for children in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery counties will follow consecutively. Space is limited and registrations will be processed in the order they are received. Additional information on program dates, locations outside of the Greater Philadelphia region, and times are available at

She appreciates the intricacy of the art form and values the connection it gives her to her Indian roots. A new exhibition of mixed media work by Wendy Cotton will be on view in the BeaDazzle Gift Gallery. Also, ongoing exhibitions are on view in the Lounge Gallery and Stairwell Gallery featuring work by CAC faculty members Erica Harney and Barbara Hanselman and students in the ARTstart early childhood program.

heck, Please!, a new WHYY original production, will debut in January, 2020. The series invites viewers to experience all that the Delaware Valley’s vibrant and diverse dining scene has to offer. Hosted by noted food and travel writer Kae Lani Palmisano, each episode features local food lovers offering up their reviews of restaurants throughout Greater Philadelphia. You won’t see professional restaurant critics on Check, Please! In each episode, three local diners choose their favorite restaurants for the other guests to visit anonymously. After trying all three recommended restaurants, the guests come on the show to discuss, dispute and celebrate their dining experiences. “This region has some of the best restaurants in the world and many of them are tucked into neighborhoods where only the locals know how good they are,” said Check, Please! host Palmisano. “This show will be an essential resource for dedicated foodies and occasional restaurant goers alike.” Obsessed with the history and origins of food, Kae Lani’s journeys have taken her from exploring the Spice Route through Israel and Europe to foraging with the Māori in New Zealand. Living by the motto that “Life is too short to live anything but deliciously,” the South Jersey-native and contributing Food & Travel Editor with USA TODAY 10Best spent last year researching cuisine and culinary traditions on four continents. In addition to reporting on international cuisine for USA TODAY 10Best, Kae Lani has also covered the Philadelphia food scene for the James Beard Award-winning publication Roads & Kingdoms. “This season is packed with great places and personalities, and we can’t wait for the show to premiere,” said Palmisano. The first season of Check, Please! will include stops at Bing Bing Dim Sum, Vernick, Little Fish, Sate Kampar, Hardena, Zeppoli, Victor Café and Vedge.
