This summer we learned a beloved American dish contained potentially harmful chemicals called phthalates. Are revelations like these worth cleaning out the pantry? For non-scientists, it can be hard to tell. Chemists, however, are trained to distinguish between science and sensationalism. Next week at the Wagner Free Institute of Science, chemist Michelle Francl decodes mysteries about chemicals and provide strategies that non-chemists can use to determine whether mainstream recommendations are scientifically sound or purely sensationalism: http://ow.ly/SVkl30gJikn

    The Chemicals in Your Mac and Cheese
    The groups tested 10 different varieties of mac and cheese, including some that were labeled organic, and found high levels of phthalates in all of them. The tested products were purchased in the United States and shipped in the original packaging to VITO, the Flemish Institute for Technological Research in Belgium, where fat extracted from each product sample was analyzed for 13 phthalates using validated test methods, Mr. Belliveau said.

The Center for Art in Wood added 4 new photos...

GET TO KNOW: Dean Pulver - "This selection of pieces represents some of the series that I have explored over the past 15 years. Even though the approach and language of form may vary there is a common sculptural intent within all the pieces: the goal to create beautiful, potent objects that are truthful and unique but respect their origins. I have ventured into various sub-explorations to experiment with ways to create pieces that have the vitality and resonance that I hope for. Vitality in that the pieces have a contained energy, as if ready to move or breathe and resonance, in that the pieces reference many things and therefore echo in the mind. These explorations are more openings to thought and reflection rather than statements. Since wood is my choice of medium, respecting traditions of woodworking is also important; obvious suggestions to tooling of surfaces, opposed by finely finished surfaces, are present. This adds the evidence of human interaction and energy contained in the piece. All of these sub studies support my pursuit toward the beauty which lies in truthful objects. In truths we express reality. In expressing reality our feelings, thoughts, strengths, insecurities and imperfections are brought out into the open. Truth and honesty is beautiful to me." (Artist Statement) You can see the work of Dean Pulver, this year's Bob Stocksdale International Excellence in Wood Awardee now through Jan 18, 2018. Open Tues - Sat, 10am - 6pm, Sun 12pm - 4pm.

November is Diabetes Month. The Dr. Michael Somogyi Collection in the archives at CHF contains lab notebooks, research notes, article reprints, photographs, and scrapbook pages, all covering Somogyi's years as the director of the Clinical Laboratory at the Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, MO. During that time, he came to believe that most adult diabetics could control their disease through diet alone and he delivered a lecture on that point at an American Chemical Society conference in Atlantic City. The speech was covered in newspapers around the country, and clippings make up part of the collection in our archives.
