After the Friday night home opener against the Detroit Pistons, the 76ers won't have to venture far from the Wells Fargo Center for more than two weeks.

Plans were to fast track internet gambling in New Jersey through Senate and Assembly Committes today and have it on Governor Chris Christie's desk by Monday.

Instead, sponsors will reintroduce the plan next week when a new legislature is seated.

The idea is to allow personal online accounts with Atlantic City casinos for New Jersey residents only and they must be within the state while gambling.

And word is it may require a voter... Read More

CD and Album Sales Increase - A First Since 2004
  by: iradiotom - Philadelphia, PA
started: 01/05/12 11:24 am | updated: 01/05/12 11:24 am
2011 saw U.S. album sales post an increase for the first time since 2004 according to the Associated Press. Maybe this is an indicator of how the market will react to CD's that contain more than one good song.

U.S. album sales rose more than 3 percent last year for the first gain since 2004 -- a sign that rising digital sales are finally stemming the decade-long decline of compact discs.

The uptick to 458 million album sales was helped by the hugely popular... Read More

Honest Services Fraud Retrial? - Christopher Wright
  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA
started: 01/05/12 11:19 am | updated: 01/05/12 11:19 am
Former Philadelphia City Council staffer Christopher Wright, former chief of staff to the recently retired at-large councilman Jack Kelly, had been convicted in 2009 of what's called "honest services fraud," for helping a developer who was giving him a rent-free apartment.

But last year, the US Supreme Court rejected one component of the honest services fraud law as too vague, and now a federal appeals court has, in turn, thrown out Wright's conviction. Now, he's waiting to see... Read More

  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA
started: 01/03/12 9:20 pm | updated: 01/03/12 9:20 pm
The Quadrantids meteor shower, which can potentially be the best natural lightshow of the year, will be visible Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning. Viewing conditions will be ideal around Philadelphia with clear skies but it will be quite frigid with temperatures only about 20 degrees.

The peak is predicted to be somewhere around 2:30 to 3 a.m., though Quadrantids meteors are "notoriously unpredictable" in terms of intensity. NASA says it will be a "brief, beautiful"... Read More
