“Everyone on botany Twitter was quite chuffed by the outcome. It was a new discovery, and their own special corner of science Twitter had made it happen.” http://bit.ly/2Ge3N5T

    Botany Twitter just helped discover a rare plant clinging to a cliff in Pennsylvania
    Last year, while surveying a cliff for plants in a Pennsylvania state park, a botanist at Bucknell University took a photo with his phone and tweeted it. In plain English, it said: "Bumblebee on American alumroot, Shikellamy Bluffs, PA. #the study of seasonal natural phenomena #pollinators #flowers."

On this day in 1932, Amelia Earhart took off for Ireland to become the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Even as new technology for radio and navigation was developed, Earhart continued to fly strictly by instinct. While working to improve her aviation skills, she and her husband planned a solo flight across the Atlantic. In 1932, they announced that on the fifth anniversary of Charles Lindbergh’s across the Atlantic, Amelia would attempt the same. Earhart landed in Ireland after a thirteen hour flight.

    The Pacific Ocean has a plastic problem. Here's the bold plan to fix it.
    In the Pacific Ocean halfway between California and Hawaii lies what's become known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a huge jumble of fishing nets, bottles, bags, and other plastic items as well as tiny bits of plastic debris. "It's a vast plastic soup," says Kahi Pacarro, executive director of Honolulu-based Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii.

Laudanum is an opium tincture containing opium alkaloids: morphine and codeine. It was named by Paracelsus, “the father of toxicology,” and was believed to mean “something to be praised” in Latin. Used throughout Victorian society as a muscle relaxer, cough suppressant, etc., the medicine is highly addictive. It has the reputation of having inspired writers, poets and artists, such as Charles Dickens, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and Thomas De Quincey. In 1868 after numerous overdoses of the once over-the-counter drug, restrictions were put into place and the bottle had to be clearly labeled as a poison."

First on our #internationalmuseumday feature: Want to see a medical collection with bite? The Wellcome Collection in London (UK) has a new exhibition on teeth open now through September, and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg…it’s free. ・・・ This is a late 18th century ivory obturator with human teeth, believed to have belonged to Sir Edmund Burke. . Edmund Burke was an Irish-born writer and politician, widely regarded as the philosophical founder of modern conservatism. He moved to London in 1750, where he served as an MP for 28 years. This prosthesis appears to have had the dual function of providing an upper set of teeth – human teeth riveted into the ivory base – and sealing a hole, front right in the roof of the mouth, suggesting that the wearer had a cleft palate. . You can see these and more at our new #Teethexhibition opening on 17 May. From folk remedies and tooth fairies to barber-surgeons and professional dentists, Teeth tells the tale of our pursuit of a pain-free mouth and the perfect smile.

Happy Birthday Edward Jenner! Edward Jenner is known for his discovery of the use of cowpox as a vaccine against smallpox. He also had a medical collection, much like our own dr. Mütter. We are lucky enough to have a piece of that collection. This is a bezoar from the stomach of a cow. Note on the second image it’s labeled: hair ball. Cow. You can see a bezoar in our Grimm’s Anatomy exhibit, and you can see much more hair in our current special exhibition Woven Strands: The Art of Human Hair Work. #jenner #edwardjenner #notkyliejenner #science #vaccines #smallpox #hairball #museum #museumcollection #pathology
