Lady dinosaur in Victorian London made me wonder about fossils during the Middle Ages. They were found and discussed, as early as Aristotle, and later Ibn Sina and Albert of Saxony. By the XVI century, extensive collections were gathered and classified.
This one, in particular, is a fossilized mammoth bone, gift by Emperor Frederick III to the St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna in 1443.

7-Year-Old Zora Ball Is the World’s Youngest Game Programmer
The youngest person to create a full version of a mobile application video game. A first grader at Philadelphia’s Harambee Institute of Science and Technology Charter School, she’s already more accomplished than everyone you know.
Ball built the app in the Bootstrap programming language, and unveiled her game at FATE’s “Bootstrap Expo” at the University of Pennsylvania.
Apparently some grumpy olds were suspicious that her older brother was really the mastermind behind the program, but Zora showed them. When asked to reconfigure the app on the spot, Ball showed naysayers what was up when she executed the request perfectly.
“We expect great things from Zora, as her older brother, Trace Ball, is a past STEM Scholar of the Year,” said Harambee Science Teacher Tariq Al-Nasir. No pressure, baby geniuses, but there’s an entire world for you to save. Please hurry.

Did you know that early experiments in flash photography involved photographers filling a tray with magnesium powder, putting it on their heads, and igniting it to create a small explosion? Eventually, photographers mounted the tray to a stick to lift it—a bit more safely—above their heads. Learn more about how early photographers experimented with flash in this interesting piece from NPR’s “All Things Considered.” Then come visit “Artificial Light: Flash Photography in the Twentieth Century” at the Museum. But hurry—the exhibition closes August 3.”Midnight at the Bowery Mission Breadline,” 1909, by Lewis W. Hine

Forget the spreadsheet, here’s an easy flowchart to know if a women owes you sex

Microsoft Excel took a turn for the explicit this week when the Internet learned the once-innocuous office tool was being used in a dispiriting new bro-trend: using the software to track of the number of times their partners refuse sex. Yes, #sexspreadsheets are a thing, presumably because some men still believe that owning of a penis entitles them to unlimited sexy times.
Sorry, guys, that’s just not the way the world works | Follow micdotcom

The Patricia Emerald is a large and superbly colored specimen. At 632 carats, the dihexagonal, or twelve-sided, crystal is considered one of the great emeralds in the world. Found in Colombia in 1920, it was named after the mine owner’s daughter.
The flaws in this emerald are normal but compromise the hard gem’s durability. This specimen is one of the very few large emeralds that have been preserved uncut. Today, Colombia is still the world’s major source of emeralds.
See other superb specimens in the Morgan Memorial Hall of Gems.
