​​Come Join a Student Celebration of O.V. Catto on May 7, 2018, 9:30 am – 2 pm at Philadelphia City Hall. At the age of 16, O.V. Catto began “speaking up” about the issues of his day that concerned him. This year, the School District of Philadelphia and a group of cultural and education partners in collaboration with the Catto Memorial Fund, produced the first O.V. Catto education initiative. This initiative trained 90 educators at 52 schools and brought the story Catto and American Civil Rights into their classrooms reaching over 11,200 students! At this event there will be a representative group of these students speak about their education journey and Catto at City Hall with Mayor Kenney. Mural Arts is also providing a “Paint Day” in the City Hall Courtyard for the new Catto Mural that will be installed in the fall at Universal Institute Charter (Broad and Catherine).

Passionate and precocious, Eugene Delacroix was born on this day in 1798 in a suburb of Paris, to a family rooted in the French Revolution. Equally revolutionary was his no-holds-barred painting style—riffing strongly off his Venetian idols—which made him a reluctant cause célèbre. Despite this ambiguity, and his lifelong delicate health, Delacroix was quickly established in the Romantic pantheon. The Barnes’s Delacroix in room 13 of the Collection Gallery is an oil study for a late mural masterpiece, the ceiling of the Chapel of the Holy Angels of the Church of Saint-Sulpice, Paris. “I have no love for reasonable painting,” Delacroix states in his journal, and the miasmic subject of “Saint Michael Defeats the Devil” may speak to this individualistic streak. 🎨 Eugene Delacroix. “Saint Michael Defeats the Devil,” probably 1850.

"Sometimes known as 'sea nomads,' the Bajau have lived at sea for more than 1,000 years, on small houseboats that float in the waters off Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines." https://theatln.tc/2qRFzcJ

    How Asia's Super Divers Evolved for a Life At Sea
    One gene, known as PDE10A, stood out. It does many things, but it's especially active in the thyroid gland, and controls the release of hormones. The version of PDE10A that's common in the Bajau is associated with higher levels of thyroid hormones, and those hormones, in turn, make spleens grow bigger-at least, in rodents.
