The SheBelieves Cup started its first leg of the tournament with the United States playing against Germany at Talon Energy Stadium. SheBelieves is a campaign to inspire young girls and women and encourage them to accomplish their goals and dreams.

Launched in 2015, it has evolved and grown into a special connection between the fans and the team showing that empowerment and believing in yourself can do in respective communities across the country.

Orchids - Mother Nature's Masterpiece (Photo Gallery)

Throughout the month of March, Longwood Gardens has an orchid collection that is stunning to the eye as well as the other senses. From Moth to Lady slipper orchids, there are more than 2000 species of orchids in the conservatory.
There are even a couple orchids with fragrances that have a slight hint of vanilla or chocolate. AL DIA News took a trip to Kennett Square to see how many species of orchids we can find. Look down low and even look high up in the trees.  You never know what type or orchid you may find.

"Stand up, fight and protect other people." - Mayor Jim Kenney

Mayor Jim Kenney speaks at #TakeActionPhilly

When a liberal city faces a conservative presidential administration, the result is a battle similar to David and Goliath.

But as the city bands together to protect it's values and diversity, it's clear that David is pulling back his slingshot.

After searching for 27 years, the Tibetan Buddhist Center can call North Philadelphia its new home. After its grand opening this past weekend, they started the Tibetan New Year with the Palden Lhamo Tea Ceremony. This is an authentic ceremony that offers great benefit, with a history dating back over 1000 years.

¿Por qué hay tantos candidatos a Fiscal de Distrito?

La atestada carrera por la oficina del Fiscal de Distrito de Filadelfia se ha covertido una de las elecciones más anticipadas para las primarias de este mes de Mayo.

Con siete candidatos, es impresionante cómo la competencia se volvió tan atestada, tan rápido.

La oficina de fiscal más grande del estado, la posición de Fiscal de Distrito de Filadelfia, es deseada por abogados en todo el área.

Pero tras la emoción y la decepción que rodeó la elección de Seth Williams, y luego a su caída en picada, podríamos pensar que sólo los más valientes se lanzarían.
