Science is Everywhere and I look like Everyone!

First a video posted on the World Science Festival (NY June 10-14, 2009) Website.

New York City high school students share their thoughts on science.


Science is Everywhere from World Science Festival on Vimeo.

 Second, now that I've been out on video for a bit, adding to other information from years past, I have been accused of looking like some of the most beautiful women ever to walk the planet.  Those who know me think I find this hilarious, a little flattering, but mostly hilarious.

Sandra Bullock          Lynda Carter         Audrey Hepburn         

 Vivian Leigh           Julia Roberts         Racquel Welch           (Sarah Palin)

So, lets be scientific about this. I will post pics of these beauties in the BIOE hall (3rd floor of DCL) and you can come by and vote on who you think I most look like.  I will collect data until the end of the semester. If you found me here by chance, use the comment form to send me a comment...you won't be anonymous, but I make no judgments on what you think.

Then, I will look to see if I can find someone who can run some sort of software analysis to compare % similarities between my facial features and those of these women.  We will match that to my other collected data and see what we come up with.  If you know someone with this software, let me know!!

Still working on Science Olympiad...only a few days until the big event!

Until next time,

Kindly, Joanne

A table made of body parts....eeeewwww

Via Twitter, I have made contact with some very interesting people (and I thank freelance science writer David Bradley of Science Base blog for convincing me to be more active with it).  Just recently I started following history_geek, a professor who studies the history of medicine.  Those who know me, know I love the history of science, but I am particularly drawn to the history of medicine and am excited about this new interaction.  She has a website called Wonders and Marvels: A community for Curious Minds who Love History, its Odd Stories, and Good Reads My question is: How did she know I was out there???

She is heading to Paris shortly and I told her about my "nerdy" trip to Paris about a year and a half ago where I tried to visit mostly scientific spots of interest.  One place I decided to go was La Musée d'Histoire de la Médecine (The Museum of the History of Medicine).  There, one could find all sort of ancient medical artifacts including trepanation kits (for drilling into the skull) and other antique medical equipment.

The most fascinating item there was a table made of petrified body parts.  Here we go:

Translation: Created by Efisio Marini, Italian physician/naturalist and offered to Napolean III

This table is formed of petrified brain, blood, bile, liver, lungs and glands on which sits a foot, four ears and cut vertebrae which are also petrified.

If you are now grossed out, let's look at something less gruesome, a sample of penicillian!

 OK, gotta run!  Lots to do this week to get ready for the State Science Olympiad.  I need volunteers for the day (Saturday the 25th!  Contact me if you have a few hours to help these kids!)

Kindly, Joanne
