“Along with recipes for distilling wine and making black hair dye, the manuscript contains instructions for conjuring up a basilisk — the mythical serpent that played a memorable role in one of J.K. Rowling’s best-selling books.” http://bit.ly/2GdnBGo

    Scans reveal secrets of medieval 'Harry Potter' book and medical texts at Penn
    The slim volume bound in animal skin represented the best the field of medicine had to offer 500 years ago: a compilation of remedies made from such ingredients as rabbit bones, ox tongue, and chicory. Yet at some point before the manuscript reached its current resting place, a library shelf at the University of Pennsylvania, an unknown liquid was spilled on its carefully lettered pages.

    Editor's Note: Vincent Feldman's photographs of neglected Philadelphia are mesmerizing and devastating. His large format prints shimmer with silvery detail. Deep tones of black and white glow with a three-dimensional quality. Feldman's mastery of his medium transfixes the eye, while his desperate, deserted subjects reach out to grab you by the heart.

Good Afternoon Neighbors! This Tuesday, May ...

Good Afternoon Neighbors! This Tuesday, May 22th, SEPTA is having a public hearing for the new Bus Route 49; this bus route will connect South Philly directly into University City and Brewery Town. This will be a monumental change for our community! After many revisions it is in it's initial stages of development but we need you to show support! I believe Route 49 will: 1. Bring jobs from University City to South Philly 2. Create access for disabled & seniors residents into University City 3. Connect people to health resources (CHOP, VA, & Penn Medicine) 4. Establish diverse travel options for residents who need access to the regional rail via 30th Street station It has taken more than three years for this route to finally reach this stage. SEPTA needs your input or it will be scrapped again. Details Date: May 22nd, 2018 Location: 1234 Market St Time: 12pm & 5pm If you cannot attend but still want to get involved and show support, please write an email to serviceplanning@septa.org no later than 5/23/18.

“Everyone on botany Twitter was quite chuffed...

“Everyone on botany Twitter was quite chuffed by the outcome. It was a new discovery, and their own special corner of science Twitter had made it happen.” http://bit.ly/2Ge3N5T

    Botany Twitter just helped discover a rare plant clinging to a cliff in Pennsylvania
    Last year, while surveying a cliff for plants in a Pennsylvania state park, a botanist at Bucknell University took a photo with his phone and tweeted it. In plain English, it said: "Bumblebee on American alumroot, Shikellamy Bluffs, PA. #the study of seasonal natural phenomena #pollinators #flowers."
