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.

The Rosenbach added an event.

Dr. Frankenstein’s creature practically defines the notion of an iconic image for modern life: over the last 200 years no allegory has held more fascination, nor seems continually to be more timely. In honor of the bicentennial of Frankenstein’s publication, we invited a historian of science, a literature scholar, and a biologist to a discussion moderated by a bioethicist. Their panel will explore the reasons that Mary Shelley’s vision has had such a profound effect on our imagination and on the way we structure our understanding of the ethical and social implications of biotechnology. About the panel Stephanie A. Dick is an Assistant Professor in History and Sociology of Science at the University of Pennsylvania. She works at the intersection of history of computing, artificial intelligence, and mathematics. Her work explores the historical consequences of automation for knowledge, its character and its production, in different communities from mathematical logicians to police departments. Her writings include, “AfterMath: The Work of Proof in the Age of Human-Machine Collaboration,” and “Of Models and Machines: Implementing Bounded Rationality.” From 2012 – 2015, she was selected as one of nine researchers funded by the Turing Centenary Research Project: Mind Mechanism and Mathematics. John D. Gearhart is James W. Effron University Professor of Cell and Developmental Biology as well as a Penn Integrates Knowledge Professor. He has played a major role in the development and/or use of a variety of technologies with the goal of improving human health and performance. These include embryonic stem cells, cloning embryos, the use of interspecific chimeras, transgenesis and the genetic reprogramming of genomes. Not surprisingly, among opponents of this work he has commonly been referred to as Dr. Frankenstein, among other names. Mark Greenberg is Distinguished University Professor and Provost Emeritus at Drexel University. He was founding dean of the Pennoni Honors College before becoming provost. He has taught and published on 19th century British literature, and on literature, science, and technology. He was a founding member and past president of the Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts. Jonathan D. Moreno, is the David and Lyn Silfen Professor of Ethics at the University of Pennsylvania with appointments in Medical Ethics and Health Policy, History and Sociology of Science, and Philosophy. His writings include Undue Risk: Secret State Experiments on Humans, and Mind Wars: Brain Science and the Military in the 21st Century. Moreno’s work was used in the development of the screenplay for The Bourne Legacy. He is an elected member of the National Academy of Medicine.
