Love, literature, and libraries: is there anything more romantic? We're warming up to the theme with a month of affectionate offerings, from love letters to literary couples.

    Romance at the Rosenbach
    Love is in the library: over the holidays, two visitors got engaged while on a tour of the historic house. Admittedly, some of us were in on the plan. One of our artistic staff members created a library display case with a copy of the bride-to-be's favorite book, Jane Eyre, opened to the page with the famous line "Reader, I married him."

“Standing on platforms, the figures loom above visitors, staring straight ahead. Some of their visages are stern and others smiling.” - LNP + LancasterOnline.com http://bit.ly/2FOxCLs “Terracotta Warriors of the First Emperor” is open now through March 4, 2018. Learn more: http://bit.ly/fi-tcw

    'Terracotta Warriors' exhibit brings first Chinese emperor to life at Franklin Institute
    PHILADELPHIA - In 1974, a group of farmers digging a well in a persimmon orchard in central China found pieces of terra-cotta pottery that looked like parts of human figures. They didn't realize that under their feet lay an ancient burial chamber the size of Manhattan.

According to data just released by NOAA and NASA, 2017 had the second warmest global surface temperature since 1880. http://n.pr/2FPVY7B

    2017 Among Warmest Years On Record
    2017 was among the warmest years on record, according to new data released by NASA and the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration. The planet's global surface temperature last year was second warmest since 1880, NASA says. NOAA calls it the third warmest year on record, due to slight variation in the ways that they analyze temperatures.

What happens when ideas presented as science lead us in the wrong direction? History is filled with brilliant ideas that gave rise to disaster, and this book explores the most fascinating—and significant—missteps: - from opium’s heyday as the pain reliever of choice to recognition of opioids as a major cause of death in the U.S.; - from the rise of trans fats as the golden ingredient for tastier, cheaper food to the heart disease epidemic that followed; and - from the cries to ban DDT for the sake of the environment to an epidemic-level rise in world malaria. These are today’s sins of science—as deplorable as mistaken ideas from the past such as advocating racial purity or using lobotomies as a cure for mental illness. These unwitting errors add up to seven lessons both cautionary and profound, narrated by renowned author and speaker Paul A. Offit. Offit uses these lessons to investigate how we can separate good science from bad, using some of today’s most controversial creations—e-cigarettes, GMOs, drug treatments for ADHD—as case studies.
