Here’s a roundup of national media predictions for Sunday’s Eagles-Texans game.
I ran into the lovely Dom Streater at Timberland’s opening party earlier this week, and she had on the best accessory of the night. I’d noticed her cute little bunny ears sticking up over the crowd—she’s one of the few who can pull off such a whimsical cap on a non-Halloween night.
On Friday afternoon, the United States Attorney in Philadelphia announced the indictment of Northeast Philadelphia mother Christine Yoder, 32, on charges that she sexually exploited her daughters, who are approximately 16 months and six years old. Read more »

UPDATE: A police source told Action News that Eric Frein confessed to the killing of Pennsylvania State Police Cpl. Bryon Dickson in September. Frein also confessed to wounding Trooper Alex Douglass in the same shooting, per the station.
Frein does not yet have an attorney. He’s due back in court for a preliminary hearing on November 12th.
EARLIER: Eric Frein, the man captured yesterday after a 48-day manhunt, was arraigned Friday morning and held without bail. Prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty.
He is accused of killing Pennsylvania State Police Cpl. Bryon Dickson and wounding Trooper Alex Douglass last month in a seemingly random attack. When Frein was taken out after arraignment Friday, members of the crowd chanted “rot in hell” at him.
At a press conference after Frein’s arraignment, Pennsylvania State Police Lt. Col. George Bivens updated reporters on the capture. “This was not a result of a tip or a sighting,” Bivens said. “This was a result of the continued pressure put on Frein by law enforcement.” U.S. Marshals surprised Frein as part of a routine sweep on Thursday.
Philadelphia’s outrage shifted precipitously last night with the announcement that Little Pete’s could be demolished; the parking garage the diner currently occupies the ground-floor corner of is slated to be demolished and turned into a luxury hotel. It’s all very sad (except for the part about the elimination of a parking garage downtown). As such, a full 89 percent of Philadelphian outrage is coming over the possible closure of Little Pete’s.
Elsewhere, resentment lingers. Some people are still mad at the PPA for its war with Uber over its UberX service. It included a sting operation, though the impounded UberX cars have since been released. That’s 9 percent.
Finally, just 2 percent of people in the area are angry about Chris Christie canceling Halloween due to Ebola. Of course, Christie has done no such thing, but that hasn’t stopped people on Twitter and Facebook from freaking out about it.
Runner’s World and RunKeeper teamed up for some Fun With Numbers recently, generating a national ranking based on running habits and trends in different states. Because RW is based in Emmaus, Pennsylvania, editors there were particularly interested to see how PA stacked up against the rest of the country in terms of run mileage, pace, etc.
So RunKeeper handed off data on their users’ running habits across the country and crunched the numbers for each state to find miles per capita, number of runs per person, miles per run, and pace per run. The outcomes of these metrics fed into an overall score and ranking. So where did PA fall? At #15.
Here’s our breakdown:
