Digital detectives share their online tricks — We post on social media every day and for some, multiple times a day. But what can a post, picture or even a comment reveal about someone and who is looking?

Wynnewood seminary hopes for another papal visit — There is a lot of excitement around the region for the Pope's visit later this year, but nowhere is that more palpable than in the place where he'll likely stay. At Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary in Wynnewood, young men are studying day and night to determine if the priesthood is the path for them.

PREVIEW: Inside the seminary that could host the pope — The Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary on City Avenue could have a very special guest during the World Meeting of Families in September: Pope Francis. Tonight at 11, Action News anchor Brian Taff will get an inside look at the seminary where the pope could say during his trip to Philadelphia.

Breakthrough technology allows blind Philadelphia woman to see — A blind, Philadelphia woman is the first in our area to receive a cutting edge device. Electronic eyes are giving her back the gift of sight. "I look left to right. Is that the edge over there? Oh my God."

Special Report: New tricks to help protect your identity — Hundreds of times a day, hackers attempt to break into online retailers, financial organizations, credit card companies, even the digital records for brick and mortar stores. You are their target and they want your personal information. In November 2013, Target announced a data theft affecting millions of customers.

Mom: Daycare left child behind in park — A mom from Wilmington, Delaware said her son's daycare left the boy behind at a park last week, and it was the actions of a Good Samaritan that got the boy back where he belonged.

A Tribute to Jim O'Brien — PHILADELPHIA - November 25, 2013 (WPVI) -- There isn't a week that goes by without someone stopping me to talk about Jim O'Brien - the host of so many 6abc Thanksgiving Day Parades throughout the years.

Gov. Christie, volunteers offer optimism to Hurricane Sandy victims — SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. - October 29, 2013 (WPVI) -- For Chris Christie, New Jersey's famously gruff governor, hugs have become an unlikely part of the job. A year after his state was devastated by Hurricane Sandy, he's become, in a sense, consoler-in-chief.

One year later, Sandy's scars still linger — October 28, 2013 (WPVI) -- It was one year ago Tuesday when Hurricane Sandy roared across the New Jersey shore. However, even after 12 months, the scars from Sandy are still everywhere and in various stages of healing. We had plenty of warning, as we saw the second-largest hurricane in recorded history heading our way.
