“Known as gray ghosts because they are only rarely glimpsed, they differ from other types of caribou, which are plentiful on the tundra.” https://nyti.ms/2F3QtQR

    Gray Ghosts, the Last Caribou in the Lower 48 States, Are 'Functionally Extinct'
    HELENA, Mont. - The battle to save the so-called gray ghosts - the only herd of caribou in the lower 48 states - has been lost. A recent aerial survey shows that this international herd of southern mountain caribou, which spends part of its year in the Selkirk Mountains of northern Idaho and Washington near the Canadian border, has dwindled to just three animals and should be considered "functionally extinct," experts say.

Happy Birthday to Alfred Maurer, who was born on this day in 1868. Maurer was an American modernist painter and a good friend of Dr. Albert Barnes. In “Still Life,” the use of bold colors and juxtaposition of decorative patterns remind us of a work by Henri Matisse, whom Maurer greatly admired. 🎨 Alfred Maurer. “Still Life,” c. 1909–1910.

    The Eagles Super Bowl Win Meets the Philadelphia Orchestra, Live In Concert
    This is the best idea we've heard all week. Since the Eagles won the Super Bowl way back on February 4th, we've watched the NFL Films footage of that Nick Foles Philly Special touchdown and other exciting plays from the game countless times, all underscored by that dramatic orchestral music that so perfectly captures the feeling of those moments.

    After years of failed attempts, a research team in Singapore has successfully taught a pair of robots to do something that many humans still can't: build an IKEA chair.
