Enjoy the winners of this years’ Comedy Wildlife Photo Awards. http://n.pr/2AqCQdm

    Here Come The Penitent Penguins: The Comedy Wildlife Photo Awards Are Back
    Penitent penguins. A seal aghast. A turbocharged wigeon, a vain gnu and a kickboxing kangaroo. The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards are back. This year's winners were announced Thursday morning. The annual awards are "ingeniously titled to avoid any confusion," according to their website, and recognize images that are "light-hearted, upbeat, possibly unpretentious and mainly about wildlife doing funny things."

On this day in 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright successfully piloted an airplane for the first time in human history ushering in the age of flight. Housed in the collections of The Franklin Institute are numerous objects and documents related to the Wright Brothers and one of their original Flyers. One of the most interesting of these items is this document, an early pencil sketch that the brothers created as they were devising the machine. http://bit.ly/1mlWqQi Support the conservation of these objects by supporting the Franklin Fund. Any donation the Institute will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $50,000 through December 31.

Scientists are studying several thousand golden retrievers in an attempt to get a much broader understanding of the health and biology of all dogs. http://wapo.st/2Aq1xX4

    How 3,000 very good golden retrievers could help all dogs live longer
    Most dogs get poked and prodded at the veterinarian's office. Piper, a 4-year-old golden retriever in Chicago, gets far more scrutiny than that. Her annual checkup this month took three hours. Her flaxen hair was trimmed and bagged, her toenails clipped and kept, her bodily fluids collected.

Who else is digging The Decemberists and Lin-Manuel Miranda's "Ben Franklin's Song?" We love it and, as the home of The Benjamin Franklin National Memorial, thought it would be good to break down the lyrics a little bit for this #FranklinFriday. Enjoy our analysis: http://bit.ly/2Bs006K

    Unpacking "Ben Franklin's Song"
    On December 15, 2017, The Decemberists released "Ben Franklin's Song," the lyrics of which were written by Lin-Manuel Miranda and originally intended to be used in the hit musical Hamilton. This song provides some great insights on Franklin's accomplishments, so, here are 3 things that are correct about "Ben Franklin's Song," one thing that is probably correct and one thing that is decidedly incorrect.
