Enjoy the winners of this years’ Comedy Wildlife Photo Awards. http://n.pr/2AqCQdm

    Here Come The Penitent Penguins: The Comedy Wildlife Photo Awards Are Back
    Penitent penguins. A seal aghast. A turbocharged wigeon, a vain gnu and a kickboxing kangaroo. The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards are back. This year's winners were announced Thursday morning. The annual awards are "ingeniously titled to avoid any confusion," according to their website, and recognize images that are "light-hearted, upbeat, possibly unpretentious and mainly about wildlife doing funny things."

On view in our Sir Isaac's Loft exhibit, the "Inside-Out Dragon" is a classic optical illusion. Your brain turns the Dragon right side out because you aren't used to seeing things inverted.

    Philly basement bars: 12 places to drink underground
    Philly's got a surprising variety of options for subterranean drinking, from smoky dives to hip dance clubs and faux speakeasies to sushi counters. Beneath the city sidewalks, you can catch a game, watch a live show, bowl a few rounds or play darts.

On this day in 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright successfully piloted an airplane for the first time in human history ushering in the age of flight. Housed in the collections of The Franklin Institute are numerous objects and documents related to the Wright Brothers and one of their original Flyers. One of the most interesting of these items is this document, an early pencil sketch that the brothers created as they were devising the machine. http://bit.ly/1mlWqQi Support the conservation of these objects by supporting the Franklin Fund. Any donation the Institute will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $50,000 through December 31.

Scientists are studying several thousand golden retrievers in an attempt to get a much broader understanding of the health and biology of all dogs. http://wapo.st/2Aq1xX4

    How 3,000 very good golden retrievers could help all dogs live longer
    Most dogs get poked and prodded at the veterinarian's office. Piper, a 4-year-old golden retriever in Chicago, gets far more scrutiny than that. Her annual checkup this month took three hours. Her flaxen hair was trimmed and bagged, her toenails clipped and kept, her bodily fluids collected.

Traffic light outage, snow create chaos in Center City

The electrical problems caused gridlock on the Ben Franklin Parkway, with lights out at 15th, 16th and Arch, 15th, 16th, 17th and JFK and all of Logan Circle.

    Traffic light outage, snow create chaos in Center City
    It could not have come at a worse time when a number of traffic lights north of City Hall went down right before the Friday night rush hour, and right in the middle of a snow storm.

On January 31, 2018, the Rosenbach will host a screening of the classic horror film NOSFERATU, with live organ accompaniment by Frederick R. Haas. Conceived as a companion program to our Frankenstein and Dracula exhibition, this spooky cinematic event will give us a chance to experience another gothic monster in this critically acclaimed and beautifully visualized film--which, incidentally, is lifted almost whole cloth from Bram Stoker's DRACULA. This blog post explores the connections between the Stoker estate, the Rosenbach, NOSFERATU, and our unusual off-site event.

    The Destruction of Nosferatu
    On January 31, 2018, the Rosenbach will host a screening of the classic horror film Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror , with Frederick R. Haas accompanying the movie on the organ at Macy's.
