“The species hails from a time in the Cretaceous period, between 100 and 66 million years ago, when birds were in the process of losing many of the traits inherited from their dinosaur forebears and evolving into the winged, feathered creatures we know today.” http://bit.ly/2GdjSbS

    Dinosaur-Era Bird Found With Shockingly Intact Skull
    A delicate but remarkably well-preserved fossil skull is providing new clues to how birds evolved from their dinosaur ancestors. The first known fossil of the ancient bird Ichthyornis was unearthed in 1870 in Kansas, under the direction of legendary fossil-hunter Othniel Charles Marsh.

The fountain sits in front of Philadelphia City Hall in Center City, and sculptor Janet Echelman will soon be realizing a light-and-mist installation that will track underground SEPTA trains in real time, thanks to a $325,000 grant from the William Penn Foundation.

“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.

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."
