An editorial in today's Philadelphia Inquirer talks about how the Rail Park can help its neighborhood "become Philadelphia’s next great — and equitable — community."

    Will Philly's new Rail Park help create neighborhood for all? | Editorial
    The hope of Rail Park proponents is to use the park to help link the neighborhoods together which are growing in an area with little green space and more suited for industrial than residential uses. - The Inquirer Editorial Board, Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News

“At least one species of cyanobacteria, called Chroococcidiopsis thermalis—which lives in some of the world's most extreme environments—can absorb redder (less energetic) wavelengths of light, thus allowing it to thrive in dark conditions, such as deep underwater in hot springs.” http://bit.ly/2yoqBRU

    Weird Low-Light Bacteria Could Potentially Thrive on Mars
    An international team of scientists has found that a strange type of bacteria can turn light into fuel in incredibly dim environments. Similar bacteria could someday help humans colonize Mars and expand our search for life on other planets, researchers said in a statement released with the new work.

Why Play Outdoors? | Scholastic Get outside! Your child will not only build her physical prowess, she'll boost social skills too. #playmatters #learningthroughplay #outdoorplay #natureplay http://www.scholastic.com/parents/resources/article/creativity-play/why-play-outdoors

    Why Play Outdoors?
    Through physical play outdoors, your child develops confidence in herself as she sees her skills grow: "Watch me climb the monkey bars, look how high I can swing. Watch me, watch me!" A child who is initially reluctant to go down the tall slide feels a great deal of personal pride when he finally musters up the courage to do so.
