“Standing on platforms, the figures loom above visitors, staring straight ahead. Some of their visages are stern and others smiling.” - LNP + LancasterOnline.com http://bit.ly/2FOxCLs “Terracotta Warriors of the First Emperor” is open now through March 4, 2018. Learn more: http://bit.ly/fi-tcw

    'Terracotta Warriors' exhibit brings first Chinese emperor to life at Franklin Institute
    PHILADELPHIA - In 1974, a group of farmers digging a well in a persimmon orchard in central China found pieces of terra-cotta pottery that looked like parts of human figures. They didn't realize that under their feet lay an ancient burial chamber the size of Manhattan.

According to data just released by NOAA and NASA, 2017 had the second warmest global surface temperature since 1880. http://n.pr/2FPVY7B

    2017 Among Warmest Years On Record
    2017 was among the warmest years on record, according to new data released by NASA and the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration. The planet's global surface temperature last year was second warmest since 1880, NASA says. NOAA calls it the third warmest year on record, due to slight variation in the ways that they analyze temperatures.

Stick to Your Job Pictured here is a poster which encouraged employees to “stick to your job,” which encouraged workers not to drift from job to job because their dedicated work was vital to the war effort. This poster was produced by the United States Department of Labor and, like many other propaganda posters, was distributed to American factories in order to encourage workers to maximize efficiency for the war effort.
