PHILADELPHIA - Cherelle Parker has resigned from City Council and announced her intentions to run for Philadelphia's Mayor, making her the latest council member to throw her hat in the bid for the city's top leadership position.

In her resignation letter to Council President Darrell L. Clarke, Parker said, "Serving the people of Philadelphia - first as a Council intern then staffer, then as a State Representative, where I led the Philadelphia delegation, and now as a Councilperson and the Council Majority Leader - has been one of the greatest honors of my lifetime, after having my son Langston." "I am humbled by the fact that I was allowed the privilege of representing the mighty 9th Council District, and I am proud of the work I did to solve problems for the residents of both my District and the City of Philadelphia," the letter continued.

Parker says she sees where Philadelphia stands as a city and identified the type of leader she thinks it needs. "Like many people across Philadelphia, I see the crossroads at which our city is standing.

I know that our future has the potential to shine so bright, but it is not yet written. We can have a city where people in every neighborhood feel safe; we can have a city government that provides world-class services and clean communities free of trash and blight; and we can build an economy that works for everyone, from skyscrapers to rowhomes, and everywhere in between.

Nike will offer major discounts on shoes, apparel following a report of excess product
LOS ANGELES - Consumers who are sick of the ongoing impacts of inflation are soon to experience a bit of relief following an announcement from Nike which plans to liquidate some of it's products following a recent flood of inventory. According to a report by The New York Post, Nike said it's planning to offer sales of up to 44% overall and 65% in North America, the company as it reported for its latest quarter last week. The company is blaming supply chain issues for a lag in product movement which resulted in the company overstocking some items while others arrived late. "We effectively have a few seasons landing in the marketplace at the same time," chief financial officer Matt Friend said on an earnings call with analysts on Thursday, adding that some of that inventory is now "seasonally out of relevance" and will be cleared out more quickly to make room for the "newest and best inventory."  So what does this mean for shoppers? Big discounts, and just in time for the holidays. There are three factors that could lead to inflation which include demand-pull inflation, cost-push inflation and built-in inflation.Nike wants to get rid of excess products sitting on its shelves and fast. Many sneakerheads have noted a variety of Jordan shoes and other Nike shoes that normally sell out quickly, collecting dust on shelves. Photos of these normally highly sought after shoes were posted on social media in an attempt to show the impacts of the ongoing economic downturn.
