"Sometimes known as 'sea nomads,' the Bajau have lived at sea for more than 1,000 years, on small houseboats that float in the waters off Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines." https://theatln.tc/2qRFzcJ

    How Asia's Super Divers Evolved for a Life At Sea
    One gene, known as PDE10A, stood out. It does many things, but it's especially active in the thyroid gland, and controls the release of hormones. The version of PDE10A that's common in the Bajau is associated with higher levels of thyroid hormones, and those hormones, in turn, make spleens grow bigger-at least, in rodents.

"While the average American diet amounts to about 5 kg of carbon dioxide emissions per day, the typical meat- and dairy-heavy diet amounts to three times that. By bringing those resource-intensive diets more in line with the average American diet, we could save 0.27 million metric tons of carbon dioxide in a single day – that’s the equivalent of removing 661 million cars off the road." http://bit.ly/2qSwikW

    A Surprising Solution to Lowering Our Greenhouse Gas Emissions
    This April marks the 48th Earth Month, offering us an opportunity to reflect on our collective impact on the one and only planet we call home. Many simple life changes can make a big difference - switching our household electricity provider to renewable or carbon-neutral energy sources, replacing inefficient household electronics, using cold water to wash our clothes, signing up for a composting service, and recycling, just to name a few.

More in CCD President Paul Levy's op-ed on philly.com.

By arranging works according to color, light, line, and space, we’re invited to make unexpected and exciting connections between pieces from different eras, places, and cultures. Your perspective shifts: Colors seek synchrony. Diverse themes find unity. The effect is so inspiring, it stays with you––long after you’ve left our building. Come on in this spring!

They helped us spruce up our garden, getting it ready for Bache in Bloom Silent Auction and Raffle, they helped give our school a good spring cleaning, filling up a 40' dumpster, organized Ms. Pierce's closet, AND helped us enter more of our books into the library system (getting us closer to that opening goal).
