Aunque tiesos, con la mirada vacía y sin vida, cada uno de los miembros de la colección de aves, que forman parte de la Academia de Ciencias Naturales de la Universidad de Drexel, cuentan con una historia propia.

Este verano nuevos especímenes fueron agregados a la extensa colección, una de las diez más grandes en el mundo.  Ésta cuenta con una familia de  más de 200.000 ejemplares que representan unas 7.000 especies.

Aunque el Premio Nobel ha estado lejos de ser galardonado equitativamente entre géneros, el Premio de Física tiene el peor récord, ya que no ha reconocido a ninguna mujer en los últimos 50 años.

Although no Nobel Prize has come close to being equitably distributed by gender, physics has a sad record with no women honored it in the past 50 years.

Nadia Aymone Berenstein recuerda el lugar donde se enamoró por primera vez con la química de sabores. Fue en un mercado agrícola, y se metió una uva Concord a la boca. El sabor era dulce, casi de manera dominante. Esa dulzura hizo que su cabeza empezara a maquinar.

Nadia Aymone Berenstein remembers where she first fell in love with flavor chemistry. It was at a farmers’ market, and she popped a concord grape into her mouth. The flavor was sweet, almost overbearingly so. That sweetness got the wheels turning in her head.
