    Naturally Philly: All the trees, shrubs and flowers you'll find at the Rail Park
    Naturally Philly is a new Billy Penn column that explores the city's wildlife and plants - both familiar and extraordinary - that thrive or struggle in our urban environment. It won't be your typical walk in the park.When the ribbon is cut on June 14 for the city's newest open space, the Rail Park, visitors will experience a very different kind of village green.

Scientists believe the Great Pacific Garbage Patch contains more than 79,000 tons of plastic spread over an area three times the size of France. https://nbcnews.to/2G6ntZD

    The Pacific Ocean has a plastic problem. Here's the bold plan to fix it.
    In the Pacific Ocean halfway between California and Hawaii lies what's become known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a huge jumble of fishing nets, bottles, bags, and other plastic items as well as tiny bits of plastic debris. "It's a vast plastic soup," says Kahi Pacarro, executive director of Honolulu-based Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii.

Read Dracula in real time.* During the day, Jonathan tries to return to the room where he met the vampire women, but finds the door blocked. In the evening, the Count asks him to write three post-dated letters, two (dated June 12 and 19) about his impending departure for home and another (dated June 29), stating that he has just left the castle. Jonathan writes in his journal, “I know now the span of my life. God help me!” *The novel, Dracula, is comprised of journal entries and letters, all dated, so throughout the year, we’ll be posting a day-by-day account of the plot of Dracula.

“The rats and mice were voracious, eating birds alive - albatrosses, petrels, prions; anything they could get their teeth into, and that included chicks that were often several times their own size.” https://bbc.in/2G9iQxA

    Restoring South Georgia's wildlife paradise
    They have gone, or so it seems. The biggest rat eradication programme ever undertaken appears to have rid South Georgia island in the South Atlantic of its pest problem. A survey of the British Overseas Territory has found no trace of the rodents that had been attacking the local birdlife.

Next up for our #internationalmuseumday feature is this marvelous mid-west medical museum, the International Museum of Surgical Science in Chicago (USA). ・・・ "This reddish-brown, extremely bitter liquid was used as treatment for many afflictions, mental and physical. 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."

First on our #internationalmuseumday feature: Want to see a medical collection with bite? The Wellcome Collection in London (UK) has a new exhibition on teeth open now through September, and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg…it’s free. ・・・ This is a late 18th century ivory obturator with human teeth, believed to have belonged to Sir Edmund Burke. . Edmund Burke was an Irish-born writer and politician, widely regarded as the philosophical founder of modern conservatism. He moved to London in 1750, where he served as an MP for 28 years. This prosthesis appears to have had the dual function of providing an upper set of teeth – human teeth riveted into the ivory base – and sealing a hole, front right in the roof of the mouth, suggesting that the wearer had a cleft palate. . You can see these and more at our new #Teethexhibition opening on 17 May. From folk remedies and tooth fairies to barber-surgeons and professional dentists, Teeth tells the tale of our pursuit of a pain-free mouth and the perfect smile.

Happy Birthday Edward Jenner! Edward Jenner is known for his discovery of the use of cowpox as a vaccine against smallpox. He also had a medical collection, much like our own dr. Mütter. We are lucky enough to have a piece of that collection. This is a bezoar from the stomach of a cow. Note on the second image it’s labeled: hair ball. Cow. You can see a bezoar in our Grimm’s Anatomy exhibit, and you can see much more hair in our current special exhibition Woven Strands: The Art of Human Hair Work. #jenner #edwardjenner #notkyliejenner #science #vaccines #smallpox #hairball #museum #museumcollection #pathology

    Scientists develop a 3-D view of an interstellar cloud, where stars are born
    Two astronomers from Greece have managed to model the three-dimensional structure of an interstellar gas cloud, and found that it's on the order of 10 times more spacious than it originally appeared. The shape and structure of Musca, described in the journal Science, could help scientists probe the mysterious origins and evolution of stars - and by extension, the planets that surround them.

Spring Cleaning this weekend? Give toys a new life by donating them to the Spring Fair Flea Market! Drop gently used items off in Spring Fair Store Donation Box in the school lobby. Spring Fair is Friday, May 25 and nothing is quite as exciting for Greenfield students! The Spring Fair Store is a great way for our children, ages 5 - 14, to purchase a book, toy or memento at a low cost while keeping re-useable items out of the landfill. It's our goal for each child to have the opportunity to purchase something as inexpensively as a dollar. Get spring cleaning for Greenfield! We are collecting new and gently used items to sell in the Spring Fair Store. This is an opportunity to clear out items your family no longer needs. Items that have been very popular in the past include: Outgrown but working bikes, scooters, skateboards Games with all pieces intact Toys in good working condition Dolls and their accoutrements Puzzles with all pieces intact Video game sets and play systems Baggies of Legos and other building toys Trading and game cards (like Pokemon) Pretend and dress up toys NO CLOTHING OR PLUSH ITEMS WILL BE ACCEPTED. You can drop donations in the bin in the Lobby labeled "School Store." Any item not sold will be donated to a shelter for families with children. Questions? Contact Karin Hannon.
