    Cret Exhibition Captures Vibrations Of The City
    Editor's note: Architectural drawing is a dying art. Before the digital revolution gave birth to drafting software, renderings of buildings, bridges, barrel vaults, and bell towers were meticulously illustrated by hand. And although most of the technical work done for architectural and engineering firms in the past left no room for emotion or expression, a human touch, and a physical object, remained.

    No one knows Philly's downtown better than Michelle Shannon. We're pretty certain that no one knows more about Center City than Michelle Shannon, the woman who's been pushing downtown Philadelphia's development for nearly 30 years. Shannon's love affair with Center City started well before she began working for Center City District where she's been for 20 years now.

Recently coined by scientists from the University of Portsmouth in England, the term 'kleptopredation' is defined as the act of hunting an animal with a full stomach and was first observed being employed by a particular kind of sea slug. http://bit.ly/2iX1DSl

    Kleptopredation is a new scientific term for super-sizing a meal at sea
    Kleptropredation isn't a crime, though the newly-coined term has a criminal ring, and the act is kind of like theft-meets-murder-in-a-meal. Technically, it's when a predator eats prey that has just hunted and has a full belly-such that the predator ends up eating its prey's prey as well.

Congratulations and our thanks to November’s Volunteer of the Month, Jasmine Ingram. A graduate of The Franklin Institute’s Partnerships for Achieving Careers in Technology and Science (PACTS) program, Jasmine Ingram has served as a member of the PACTS Alumni Board, attended mentor/student workshop sessions, run our college tour seminar, and headlined our PACTS Alumni Speaker series ever since she graduated from college. Jasmine graduated from the University of Pittsburgh and is currently working as a data-marketer. In October, we celebrated the 25th anniversary of the PACTS Program. Jasmine was the Anniversary Alumni Chair for the event. The success of that event was due, in large part, to the hard work that Jasmine put in calling PACTS graduates and attending and hosting meetings with various Franklin Institute staff, parents and PACTS grads.

    Two Stars Slammed Into Each Other And Solved Half Of Astronomy's Problems. What Comes Next?
    Progress, as they say, is slow. In science, this is often true even for major breakthroughs; rarely is an entire field of research remade in a single swoop. The Human Genome Project took a decade. Finding the first gravitational waves took multiple decades. So it's hard to overstate the enormous leap forward that astronomy took on Aug.
