Once numbering in the billions, the passenger pigeon (Ectopistes migratorius) went extinct in the early 20th century after decades of hunting, habitat loss and other factors led to a rapid decline in population. http://theatln.tc/2jyE3vw

    What DNA Says About the Death-and Rebirth-of America's Most Common Bird
    The genome of the passenger pigeon complicates the story of its extinction-and the hopes for its resurrection.

Today, November 19, is International Men’s Day. According to the WHO, average global male life expectancy is five years lower than for women, and the male suicide rate is three times that of women. This day aims to highlight health concerns that can affect men, and also aims to highlight certain social pressures that can negatively affect both men and boys. Check out InternationalMensDay.com for more information. This image is from a pop-up exhibit our Historical Medical Library hosted at last month’s Mischief at The Mütter event. This historical (not contemporary) pamphlet was distributed to boys with information about puberty, sexual health and more. How effectively have these issues been communicated to young men throughout history and today?

Believed to be at least eight millennia old, engravings in Arabia are possibly be the oldest depictions of dogs known to archaeologists. http://bit.ly/2jBmlrj

    These may be the world's first images of dogs-and they're wearing leashes
    Carved into a sandstone cliff on the edge of a bygone river in the Arabian Desert, a hunter draws his bow for the kill. He is accompanied by 13 dogs, each with its own coat markings; two animals have lines running from their necks to the man's waist.

    A better life through augmented reality? Really!
    What do the Franklin Institute, Ikea North America Services, QVC, and the Fringe Fest have in common? They're betting on augmented reality - a commingling of the real world we live in with computer-generated imagery that makes the scene better (or weirder) for consumers.
