Happy Thanksgiving from The Franklin Institut...

Happy Thanksgiving from The Franklin Institute. A popular myth about Benjamin Franklin is that he wanted the turkey to be national bird instead of the eagle because “eagles have been found in all Countries, but the Turkey was peculiar to ours." There is no evidence that Franklin fought for the turkey to be the national bird but he did write a letter to his daughter in 1784 expressing why the turkey is “true original native of America.” Learn more: http://bit.ly/1MRjtZM IMAGE: Leopold Joseph Fitzinger (German, 1802-1884) | Meleagris gallopavo (Wild Turkey) from ‘Bilder-atlas zur Wissenschaftlich-populären Naturgeschichte der Vögel in ihren sämmtlichen Hauptformen.’ | 1864 | Smithsonian Libraries, Washington, D.C.

Did you hear the great news? Knight Foundation awarded Fairmount Park Conservancy $3.28 million for bolstering residents' engagement in the city’s changing public spaces. The grant will fund work for two to three years, which will aim to build up the capacity of friends groups (for libraries and parks) and recreation center advisory councils.

    As city waits on soda tax ruling, private sector pours on support for Rebuild
    Given all the news stories that have described Rebuild as a "$500 million initiative," you might have assumed that, at least by now, the project's funding was set in stone. While that's largely true, there still are a few unknown variables for financing for Rebuild, Mayor Jim Kenney's massive attempt to rewrite the future of the city's rec centers, libraries, playgrounds, and parks.

    Where to donate your Thanksgiving leftovers in Philly
    Taking stock of your kitchen the morning after Thanksgiving can feel worthy of battle training. Dishes are one thing, but figuring out how to store all the leftovers is a tougher feat. Do you pull the turkey off the bone for sandwich-making ease or leave it whole?

Curious about the science that lifts parade balloons up into the air? Getting Kermit The Frog airborne is a little more complicated than you might think. http://bit.ly/2jKsb9I

    The Physics of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Balloons
    Have you ever seen a child with a balloon? It's fun to watch. Kids pay attention to the world around them: They know that when you let go of something, it falls. Balloons don't follow these rules, and it's that exception that makes balloons so fascinating. But what about adults?
