Natural history collections are valued resources for conservation and research efforts, but they are turning into endangered species themselves. For this week's #FollowFriday, read about the future of natural history museums, an emerging respiratory disease, climate change problems, and more.


  • Natural history museums contain a record of life on earth, but they are quickly becoming things of the past: “Museums: The Endangered Dead,” Nature (18 February 2015)

  • The respiratory illness MERS has appeared once again in the Arabian Peninsula. Efforts to mitigate the outbreak prove just how important international collaboration is to addressing this emerging disease. “Middle East Mystery Disease Triggers Early Resurgence,” Scientific American (19 February 2015)

  1. Investing online has been a main source of income,that's why knowledge plays a very important role in humanity,you don't need to over work yourself for money.All you need is the right information,and you could build your own wealth from the comfort of your home!Binary trading is dependent on timely signals,assets or controlled strategies which when mastered increases chance of winning up to 90%-100% with trading. It’s possible to earn $10,000 to $20,000 trading weekly-monthly,just file a complaint with Robert,I had almost given up on everything about binary trading and ever getting my lost funds back,till i met with him,with his help now i have my lost funds back to my bank account and I can now trade successfully with his profitable strategies and software!!
