The Man Who Merged Science with Art via My Modern Met

The Man Who Merged Science with Art via My Modern Met
Today, many science books are full of detailed photos that reveal the intricate parts of plant life, but prior to the invention of photography (and macro photography), it was up to botanical illustrators and researchers to record the fascinating forms of flora and fauna.

Download Scale Drawings of Everything at Dimensions.Guide via Lifehacker

September 21st, 2019 Comments off
Just one of those quirky sites — and excellent resources — that I happen across in my daily reading. Just the thing if you need to compare the size of a T-Rex to a human being  and tons of other dimensions. — Douglas

Every scale drawing in its database is composed in the same clean line-art style. Drawings include sports equipment, cars, furniture, people (in various poses and sizes), computers and phones, plants and animals, room and landscape layouts, and even Marvel characters. And it’s all free to use in your own projects.

Another great free collection from the Internet Archive — this time an audio collection instead of images. Dig in and enjoy! — Douglas

Navigating the Green Book via Google Maps Mania

September 5th, 2019 Comments off

In the 1930’s Victor H. Green started publishing an African-American travel guide (first published as ‘The Negro Motorist Green Book’ and later as ‘The Negro Travelers’ Green Book’). In the guides Green reviewed hotels and restaurants which welcomed Black customers during the time of Jim Crow laws and racial segregation.

Back in 2013 the University of South Carolina created an interactive Green Book Map which visualized over 1,500 listings from the Spring 1956 Green Book. Unfortunately the University of South Carolina’s interactive Green Book Map has suffered the Google Maps API kiss of death and now all the map tiles are stamped with unsightly ‘For development purposes only’ warnings. However there is no need to worry as you can peruse the new NYPL Navigating the Green Book route planner instead.

Planned Parenthood app to let users order birth control in every state via Mashable!

September 4th, 2019 Comments off
 

The Trump administration is doing everything it can to undermine Planned Parenthood’s law-abiding, science-based reproductive health services. But Planned Parenthood has a powerful weapon in its arsenal: tech that increases access to care.

On Wednesday, Planned Parenthood announced that it had expanded its Planned Parenthood Direct app to functioning in 27 states, and that it will be available in all 50 states in 2020. The app lets users order birth control, get a prescription for Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) antibiotics, and schedule appointments at a Planned Parenthood clinic.
