Happy Thanksgiving from The Franklin Institute. A popular myth about Benjamin Franklin is that he wanted the turkey to be national bird instead of the eagle because “eagles have been found in all Countries, but the Turkey was peculiar to ours." There is no evidence that Franklin fought for the turkey to be the national bird but he did write a letter to his daughter in 1784 expressing why the turkey is “true original native of America.” Learn more: http://bit.ly/1MRjtZM IMAGE: Leopold Joseph Fitzinger (German, 1802-1884) | Meleagris gallopavo (Wild Turkey) from ‘Bilder-atlas zur Wissenschaftlich-populären Naturgeschichte der Vögel in ihren sämmtlichen Hauptformen.’ | 1864 | Smithsonian Libraries, Washington, D.C.

Did you hear the great news? Knight Foundation awarded Fairmount Park Conservancy $3.28 million for bolstering residents' engagement in the city’s changing public spaces. The grant will fund work for two to three years, which will aim to build up the capacity of friends groups (for libraries and parks) and recreation center advisory councils.

    As city waits on soda tax ruling, private sector pours on support for Rebuild
    Given all the news stories that have described Rebuild as a "$500 million initiative," you might have assumed that, at least by now, the project's funding was set in stone. While that's largely true, there still are a few unknown variables for financing for Rebuild, Mayor Jim Kenney's massive attempt to rewrite the future of the city's rec centers, libraries, playgrounds, and parks.

Curious about the science that lifts parade balloons up into the air? Getting Kermit The Frog airborne is a little more complicated than you might think. http://bit.ly/2jKsb9I

    The Physics of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Balloons
    Have you ever seen a child with a balloon? It's fun to watch. Kids pay attention to the world around them: They know that when you let go of something, it falls. Balloons don't follow these rules, and it's that exception that makes balloons so fascinating. But what about adults?

There is still time to see the Philadelphia Assembled exhibition before it comes to a close on December 10th at the Philadelphia Museum of Art! Philadelphia Assembled tells a story of active resistance and radical community building through the personal and collective narratives that make up Philadelphia’s changing urban fabric. These narratives will be explored through a collaborative effort between the Philadelphia Museum of Art and a team of individuals, collectives, and organizations as they experiment with multiple methodologies for amplifying and connecting relationships in Philadelphia’s transforming landscape. For more information:

    project
    Initiated by artist Jeanne van Heeswijk, together with a collaborative team of artists, makers, storytellers, gardeners, healers, activists, Museum staff and community members, Philadelphia Assembled explores social issues that resonate in "The City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection."
