    Naturally Philly: All the trees, shrubs and flowers you'll find at the Rail Park
    Naturally Philly is a new Billy Penn column that explores the city's wildlife and plants - both familiar and extraordinary - that thrive or struggle in our urban environment. It won't be your typical walk in the park.When the ribbon is cut on June 14 for the city's newest open space, the Rail Park, visitors will experience a very different kind of village green.

Scientists believe the Great Pacific Garbage Patch contains more than 79,000 tons of plastic spread over an area three times the size of France. https://nbcnews.to/2G6ntZD

    The Pacific Ocean has a plastic problem. Here's the bold plan to fix it.
    In the Pacific Ocean halfway between California and Hawaii lies what's become known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a huge jumble of fishing nets, bottles, bags, and other plastic items as well as tiny bits of plastic debris. "It's a vast plastic soup," says Kahi Pacarro, executive director of Honolulu-based Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii.

Jonathan writes in his journal, “I know now the span of my life.

“The rats and mice were voracious, eating birds alive - albatrosses, petrels, prions; anything they could get their teeth into, and that included chicks that were often several times their own size.” https://bbc.in/2G9iQxA

    Restoring South Georgia's wildlife paradise
    They have gone, or so it seems. The biggest rat eradication programme ever undertaken appears to have rid South Georgia island in the South Atlantic of its pest problem. A survey of the British Overseas Territory has found no trace of the rodents that had been attacking the local birdlife.

Laudanum is an opium tincture containing opium alkaloids: morphine and codeine. It was named by Paracelsus, “the father of toxicology,” and was believed to mean “something to be praised” in Latin. Used throughout Victorian society as a muscle relaxer, cough suppressant, etc., the medicine is highly addictive. It has the reputation of having inspired writers, poets and artists, such as Charles Dickens, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and Thomas De Quincey. In 1868 after numerous overdoses of the once over-the-counter drug, restrictions were put into place and the bottle had to be clearly labeled as a poison."

First on our #internationalmuseumday feature: Want to see a medical collection with bite? The Wellcome Collection in London (UK) has a new exhibition on teeth open now through September, and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg…it’s free. ・・・ This is a late 18th century ivory obturator with human teeth, believed to have belonged to Sir Edmund Burke. . Edmund Burke was an Irish-born writer and politician, widely regarded as the philosophical founder of modern conservatism. He moved to London in 1750, where he served as an MP for 28 years. This prosthesis appears to have had the dual function of providing an upper set of teeth – human teeth riveted into the ivory base – and sealing a hole, front right in the roof of the mouth, suggesting that the wearer had a cleft palate. . You can see these and more at our new #Teethexhibition opening on 17 May. From folk remedies and tooth fairies to barber-surgeons and professional dentists, Teeth tells the tale of our pursuit of a pain-free mouth and the perfect smile.

Philly's Railway Maps Featuring Nick Lombard...

Philly's Railway Maps Featuring Nick Lombardelli Co-starring the collection expertise of the librarians in the Maps Collection Nick Lombardelli is a New Jersey native and lifelong musician. Nick graduated from The University of the Arts, obtaining his bachelor#39;s degree in jazz studies in 2015 and his master of arts in teaching in 2016. Nick has the privilege of performing with many great Philadelphia area musicians on a regular basis, including Pablo Batista, Ian O#39;Beirne#39;s Slowburn, Tre Lambert, Puzzlebox, and the Jack St. Clair Orchestra. A few of the biggest influences in Nick#39;s music are Horace Silver, Pat Metheny, Dmitri Shostakovich, and Elliott Smith. Nick hopes to continue performing, writing, and teaching music in the Philly area for years to come. Over three previous concert seasons at the Parkway Central Library, veteran and up-and-coming Philly musicians have explored some questions. What has the Great Migration meant to music in Philadelphia? What happens if librarians commission composers to write music inspired by resources culled from Parkway Central's subject departments? Musicians answered with concert suites build around children's books exploring mass incarceration , seedy crime novelettes from Philbrick Hall, historic letters found in our Newspaper and Microfilm Center urging 19th-century African Americans to move to the northern cities, and much more. Now, for its fourth season with the eminent Philadelphia Jazz Project , our Mysterious Travelers series returns with Further Investigations to generate more new music inspired by library collections. We're expounding on last season's internal investigations theme to include more library departments and more musicians. And it's still completely free! Get ready for concerts touching just about every department in the library and every brick in Philly history. This season musicians will explore voodoo and the afterlife with the Education, Philosophy, and Religion Department; railway maps of Philadelphia with the Maps Collection ; Brazilian and Cuban percussion with the Music Department; Oscar Wilde, Clemens, Edgar Allan Poe with the Rare Book Department; and more. One Monday a month, settle into your seat in the Montgomery Auditorium in the Parkway Central Library-the site where musicians met with librarians to find their musical muses-and let the music find you. All events in this series are free . All concerts start at 7:00 p.m. and will be held in the Montgomery Auditorium. The Philadelphia Jazz Project (PJP) works to inspire a network to support, promote, archive, and celebrate the diverse elements within the Philadelphia jazz community, with the larger goal of connecting to the global community. www.philajazzproject.org Parkway Central Library Montgomery Auditorium 1901 Vine Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103 Accessibility: A wheelchair ramp is located at the Library's Wood Street entrance, and an elevator for the public is located next to the building's northeast courtyard.
