Over the past 4 years, DT has run a bunch of contests (from winning revolutionary water bottles to winning fantastic shaving cream).

Today, we launch a new contest to win some holiday chocolate goodness from a Penn entrepreneur doing all sorts of good in the world.

Co founders Kira Baker-Doyle (C’97, MSD’99, PHD’08) and her husband John created John & Kira’s, a socially innovative chocolate company dedicated to both making and selling world class confections and promoting positive social change.

More about her delicious chocolates and how you can enter to win a Chocolate Bee Tower after the jump!

Shortly after I posted about THIS Penn alum's national commercial, I got an email from Debbie Frank (C'93), another Penn alum who happens to also now be in a national commercial.

After the jump, check out her chuckle-worthy commercial and find out why "it's time to get real about what happens in the bathroom." ; )

While Robert Gant (C'90, Penn Six) will always be the "Good Humor Ice-Cream man" in my mind in THIS commercial, looks like Robert has a new gig you've probably already seen.

Check out his new commercial after the jump!

Spiderman and Broadway and UPenn

Back in September, I reported that Glen Berger (C'89, Mask and Wig) co-wrote the book to the upcoming "Spiderman, Turn off the Dark" Broadway show, with Tony Award-winner Julie Taymor (The Tempest, Across the Universe, The Lion King) ...with music and lyrics by Bono and the Edge!

Because of some onset injuries, the show's opening is now being pushed back and last night on "60 Minutes" Lesley Stahl got the first look at the rehearsal and production of this most ambitious and expensive musical ever brought to a Broadway stage.

Check out the "60 Minutes" segment after the jump!  Looks and sounds amazing!  Can't wait to see this show!
