If a nation values anything more than freedom, it will lose its freedom; and the irony of it is that if it is comfort or money that it values more, it will lose that too.

Today’s Birthday: MARY CASSATT (1844) a figure painter and etcher


Mary Cassatt (1844)

Cassatt was an American figure painter and etcher. As a young art student, she moved to Paris, where she was inspired by the work of Edgar Degas, with whom she developed a friendship. She allied herself with the Impressionists early in her career, but, in the late 1880s, she began experimenting with other styles and techniques. Many of Cassatt’s best-known works are intimate depictions of mothers and children. What cause did she take up when cataracts put a stop to her painting career? More… Discuss

TRAINED HONEYBEES COULD LEAD THE WAY TO LAND MINES: Does that mean weaponized bees?


Trained Honeybees Could Lead the Way to Land Mines

Wars may end, but the dangers they pose to civilian populations can persist for generations. In the nearly two decades since the Balkan wars were brought to a close,land mines left over from the conflict have taken the lives of 316 people in Croatia. Of them, 66 were engaging in the painstaking and dangerous process of demining. Now, researchers there are turning to honeybees, which have an incredibly keen sense of smell, in the hope that they can be trained to seek out unexploded land mines with greater accuracy and less risk of inadvertent detonation than current techniques. More… Discuss
