Baby in stroller Falls Into Train Tracks Mom Jumps In Before Train Barrels In Caught On Camera. A stroller carrying a 14-month-old girl rolled off a slanted train station platform and fell onto the tracks Wednesday, but the girl's mother leaped onto the tracks to rescue her with the help other passengers, transit officials said."What it looks like to us is that the mother became distracted by something, didn't apply the brake on the stroller and the stroller was able to move off the platform and onto the tracks," said Scott Sauer, director of system safety for the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority. The accident happened Wednesday afternoon at the 56th Street station of the Market-Frankford Line in west Philadelphia. The platform at the station is slanted slightly for drainage purposes, Sauer said.Surveillance video shows a woman on the eastbound platform with the girl in a jogging stroller, which slowly rolls forward and topples over onto the tracks about 5 feet below. What initially appears to be the girl flying out of the stroller apparently was just a towel or a bag. The stroller comes to rest on the outer rail, which carries no charge. The woman is seen jumping down and lifting the girl to a man waiting on the platform. Other passengers ran to help, and one used an emergency call box to alert SEPTA police, who held an incoming train at the preceding stop.The infant was taken to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia for treatment of a cut on her forehead. Sauer said during a news conference that watching the video was "gut-wrenching.""With the stroller moving at such a slow rate of speed, you know, you want to call out to someone, `Hey, the stroller's moving! Somebody grab the stroller,'" Sauer said. He said the line is one of SEPTA's busiest, with trains running every six to 10 minutes. SEPTA police said no charges will be filed but the accident serves as a reminder for other riders to lock stroller brakes when waiting on platforms.

The mission of a Toastmasters club is to provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every individual member has the opportunity to develop oral communication and leadership skills, which in turn foster self-confidence and personal growth
Selections from Patricia Katchur’s series of works titled “Upon Awakening” are the focus of the second Featured Artist exhibition of 2013. These ethereal and contemplative photographic interpretations of Sonoran Desert flora and fauna evoke the moment of awakening from a dream. Teetering on the edge of abstraction, this suite of photographs evokes a stillness and calm while also inspiring one to look ever closer at the small details present all around us.
An artist’s choice of materials is an essential part of the final aesthetic experience that artwork offers. With textural, compositional and creative nuances, every artistic medium bears its own personality. The exhibit Metal, Stone, and Wood celebrates these three distinctly different materials as they are used in two-dimensional works, sculpture, functional ware, and beyond. The particular weight and texture of carved stone can sit in stark contrast to the polish and angularity of welded steel (or sometimes, vice versa) and the ways in which local artists are engaging with these materials is at the heart of this exciting exhibition.
Through touch, we have the ability to physically interact with our surroundings and intimately discover the range of textures and forms that make up our world. For artists who are blind/visually impaired or deaf/hearing impaired the relationship to touch is often intensified in each work of art, enabling viewers to become active participants in a similar sensory investigation. Tohono Chul is exploring how artworks can engage the many senses by celebrating the artistic achievements of students from the Arizona Schools for the Deaf and the Blind.
