Between the filthy bay water and sub-standard accommodations, it looks as if the Rio games are on par to rival the danger of disease or death from the conditions of the original Greek games over 2000 years ago. One must hope that the Gay Games officials considering international sites consider health concerns when deliberating.

I’m always looking up “lawyer apps” that help attorneys with productivity, keeping track of billable hours or even offer tips on how to relax. That got me to thinking about whether or not there are apps for non-lawyers — to help with deciphering the law, pairing people with lawyers or even substitution for traditional legal services. As you know, there is an app for everything, so here is my review of the best legal apps out there for non-lawyers.

The 57 decorated donkeys around Philadelphia haven’t finished their 15 minutes of fame yet, and after you download the SCAVIFY app you’ll be able to appreciate them all over again — this time, as you get in a workout and become eligible for free stuff! The scavenger hunt goes live during convention time, specifically July 21-28 when the delegates are in town. Basically, you’ll go to several donkey spots to upload photos, answer questions, perform tasks and meet other goals.

Next week, the eyes of the world turn to Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection. Philadelphia makes world history (again) as we host the 2016 Democratic National Convention. It was in Philadelphia in 1776 that our founding fathers proclaimed that “All men are created equal.” Now, 240 years later, the first woman will accept the Democratic Party’s nomination for president of the United States. Do you want to miss this?

I had an encounter with the police a few weeks ago. I am an avid cyclist, and had a flat while on a ride, about 15 miles from home. I was struggling to change my tire when a local officer drove by, stopped to see if I needed help and offered to drive me to my house. I took her up on it, not wanting to spend any more time baking in the hot sun. My bike went into the back seat, I sat in the front and we chatted about the weather during the drive.

What do you want your retirement to look like? For most, the answers to this question follow similar themes. We want time to relax and enjoy leisure activities. We want the opportunity to vacation in our favorite destinations and travel to new places around the globe. We want to cherish the time spent with family, friends and loved ones.

Silent vigils were worldwide for Orlando these past few weeks. I’m still devastated and have gone to several of the Gayborhood events raising money for the victims and their families. Philadelphia is bleeding hard and it’s encouraging to see how our community has responded in light of such devastating gore.
