How are humans changing the face of the Earth? These images show the impact we are having on our environment. http://bit.ly/2jrGyuU

    15 before-and-after images that show how we're transforming the planet
    Human beings have replaced nature as the dominant force shaping Earth. We've cleared away forests, dammed up mighty rivers, paved vast roads, and transported thousands of species around the world. "To a large extent," two scientists wrote in 2015, "the future of the only place where life is known to exist is being determined by the actions of humans."

How did hair work become so popular in the Victorian era? Mental Floss talked to "Woven Strands" co-curator, Emily Snedden Yates, about the exhibition (opening party this Thursday!) and has a sneak peek of incredible images from the exhibition. Purchase tickets to the opening here: http://ow.ly/5H7L30hKh4K!

    Mütter Museum Showcases the Victorian Custom of Making Crafts From Human Hair
    One thing that illustrated and photographic archives have taught us is that people have always known how to rock a stylish piece of headwear. From squat caps to towering toppers, history has produced a hat for every occasion. Here are 20 old styles that, with a healthy dose of fashion and confidence, could still look just as fabulous today.
