The future… It is here!

Hmmm researching sulfanilamide; interested in a bit of history on that result?  After all — we are all about the history of chemistry…  
In the fall of 1937, more than 100 people died from an elixir of sulfanilamide.  This tragedy would renew interest in the Food and Drugs Act of 1906.  The 1906 act was obsolete at the time of this tragedy; the renewed interest in the act propelled the passage of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act 1938 and increased the FDA’s drug regulation authority which remains in effect to this day. Why? It was the elixir that was poisonous! 
Read more about it — available on the internet — the future is indeed here!

    Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked

    Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.

    Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!

    I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.

    1. Autumn In The White Carpathians
    2. Rhododendron Laden Path, Mount Rogers, Virginia, USA
    3. USASpring In Hallerbos Forest, Belgium
    4. Autumn Path In Kyoto, Japan 
    5. Autumn Path
    6. Bamboo Path In Kyoto, Japan
    7. Hitachi Seaside Park Path In Japan
    8. Dark Hedges In Ireland
    9. Winter Forest Path, Czech Republic
    10. Path Under Blooming Trees In Spring
