Art & Algae: The Work of Anna Atkins | Full Stop Polysiphonia Affinis from Anna Atkins’ Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressiona “To my dearest father this attempt is affectionately inscribed” reads a touching dedication in the frontispiece of a rare book. The page is a cyanotype print of the most vibrant blue, and the lines of white hand-written words are those of early naturalist and photographer Anna Atkins. Several lifetimes older than myself, Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions is thought to be the first book to feature photographic images. In 1841, William Harvey had published another first of its kind, A Manual of British Marine Algae. I first came to Atkins’ cyanotypes in preparation for Bloom, an exhibition at the Horniman Museum, a museum of anthropology and natural history in the south London suburb of Forest Hill. They appear fragile, but Horniman librarian Helen Williamson assures me of the cyanotypes’ hardiness. No two copies of British Algae are exactly alike. As historians such as Ann B. 1.

March 18, 2016 by ArtPlantae Nature-printed fern by Henry Bradbury © private collection The Chelsea Physic Garden has announced the the upcoming release of The Nature-Printer: a tale of industrial espionage, ferns and roofing lead by Simon Prett & Pia Östlund, a limited edition book about a lost technique of nature printing first announced in Vienna in the 1850s. Prett and Östlund’s book was inspired by a book Pia Östlund discovered while working at the Physic Garden five years ago. Overwhelmed by the beauty of the images, she set out to rediscover this lost technique of nature-printing. The Physic Garden explains: The quality of the nature-prints was astonishing. In The Nature-Printer, Prett traces Östlund’s determined quest and her attempt to repair broken connections between art, science and engineering. This limited edition book will be available beginning May 1, 2016.

Treasures of the Library : Nature printing This small volume of ‘nature printed’ leaves and flowers offers an intriguing insight into late eighteenth-century botany. It belonged to Charles Darwin (1758-1778), the eldest son of Dr Erasmus Darwin (1731-1802), of Lichfield, Derbyshire (himself the grandfather of the Charles Darwin of the ‘theory of evolution’ fame). As a child, Charles had been interested in botany, and had travelled with a botanical tutor in France when nine years old. He either made or acquired the book the year he went up to Oxford University, labelling it number eighty-four in his library, and noting the year as 1774. Charles left Oxford after a year to study medicine in Edinburgh. As a medic, he would be expected to have a knowledge of botany as many drugs were plant based. Charles’s death in 1778, while still a medical student at Edinburgh University, meant that the book reverted to his father, just when Erasmus Darwin was developing an intense interest in botany.

Early Bird or Night Owl? It May Be in Your Genes If no amount of coffee seems to help you feel fresh and alert in the morning, you may be able to blame your genes. According to a new study by the genetics company 23andMe, the preference for being a "morning person" — someone who enjoys waking up early and going to bed early — rather than being an "evening person," who tends to stay up late at night and desperately reaches for the snooze button when the alarm goes off in the morning, is at least partially written in your genes. Researchers at the company found 15 regions of the human genome that are linked to being a morning person, including seven regions associated with genes regulating circadian rhythm — the body's internal clock. "I find it interesting to see how genetics influences our preferences and behaviors," said study co-author David Hinds, a statistical geneticist at 23andMe, a privately held genetic testing company headquartered in Mountain View, California.

How Microbes, Viruses, Imprinted Genes, and Other Selfish Entities Shape Our Behavior Abstract Psychologists and psychiatrists tend to be little aware that (a) microbes in our brains and guts are capable of altering our behavior; (b) viral DNA that was incorporated into our DNA millions of years ago is implicated in mental disorders; (c) many of us carry the cells of another human in our brains; and (d) under the regulation of viruslike elements, the paternally inherited and maternally inherited copies of some genes compete for domination in the offspring, on whom they have opposite physical and behavioral effects. This article provides a broad overview, aimed at a wide readership, of the consequences of our coexistence with these selfish entities. The overarching message is that we are not unitary individuals but superorganisms, built out of both human and nonhuman elements; it is their interaction that determines who we are.

It wasn’t until Europeans took over North America that natives adopted the ideas of gender roles. For Native Americans, there was no set of rules that men and women had to abide by in order to be considered a “normal” member of their tribe. In fact, people who had both female and male characteristics were viewed as gifted by nature, and therefore, able to see both sides of everything. According to Indian Country Today, all native communities acknowledged the following gender roles: “Female, male, Two Spirit female, Two Spirit male and Transgendered.” “Each tribe has their own specific term, but there was a need for a universal term that the general population could understand. The “Two Spirit” culture of Native Americans was one of the first things that Europeans worked to destroy and cover up. “..Must be extinguished before it can be more fully recorded.” However, it wasn’t only white Europeans that tried to hide any trace of native gender bending.

Scientists Discover Coconut Oil Exterminates 93 Percent Of Colon Cancer Cells In Two Days Scientists Discover Coconut Oil Exterminates 93 Percent Of Colon Cancer Cells In Two Days Colon cancer: it’s one of the most common cancers among both men and women, and although a number of natural remedies have been linked to the prevention of this disease, government health authorities are quick to mention that not enough research has been done to warrant prescribing them. This is a common theme when it comes to using food as medicine and the science behind it. It’s unfortunate that science today is dominated by the pharmaceutical industry, and that most of the research received by physicians in the Western world comes directly from pharmaceutical companies. “The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. This, however, does not mean that other research, published in reputable peer-reviewed journals, is not being conducted, or is not significant.

Renewable & Nonrenewable Resources by Katherine Buscemi on Prezi
What is non-renewable energy? Energy exists freely in nature. Some of them exist infinitely (never run out, called RENEWABLE), the rest have finite amounts (they took millions of years to form, and will run out one day, called NON-RENEWABLE). Non-renewable energy is energy from fossil fuels (coal, crude oil, natural gas) and uranium. Fossil fuels are usually found in one location as their formation is from a similar process. 1. 2. 3. The good thing is about fossil fuels is: Unlike many renewable sources of energy, fossil fuels are relatively less expensive to produce. The bad thing about fossil fuels is: Fossil fuels are made up mainly of carbon. In the pages that follow, we shall take a look at what each source of non-renewable energy is made of, and how they are used. Note that not all non-renewable energy comes from fossil fuels. What is Non-Renewable Energy? Sources of non-renewable Energy.
Natural resources are the things that exist freely in nature human beings use for survival. These things include the water, land, forests, animals, rocks, fossil fuels, and minerals inside the Earth. Human beings did not create natural resources. They have always been a part of the Earth before humans appeared. Most of the natural resources are connected to each other in some way. For example, water is a natural resource, and there was a limited supply, then other resources such as animal and plants would be affected. Natural resources can be a solid, liquid, or gas. Renewable resources are always available and can be easily replaced or recovered. Organic renewable resources come from living things such as animals and trees. Non-renewable resources cannot be easily replaced once they are destroyed. Non-renewable resources can also come from organic or inorganic sources. Finally, there are metallic and non-metallic resources which are inorganic. Natural Resources Reading Comprehension
