anonymous asked:

How serious were medieval plagues and how fast did they spread?

We’re talking plagues hitting populations with little understanding of medical hygiene, epidemiology, or public health, it’s as serious as it gets. To give some examples:

  • The Antonine Plague (also known as the Plague of Galen because he witnessed and recorded its effects), which rocked the Roman world between 165 and 180 killed about 5 million people or a third of the population, and made it from Han China to Rome in less than a year. (Incidentally, the plague may have caused serious long-term damage to Roman trade in the Indian Ocean, decreasing world trade between Europe and China for some time).
  • The Plague of Justinian, which hit Europe in 541-2, killed 25-50 million people or 40% of the population. Many historians blame the plague (which was established in 2013 to be Yersinia Pestis or bubonic plague) for the decline of the Byzantine Empire from its heights under Justinian, as the population loss prevented the Byzantines from holding onto Belisarius’ conquests in North Africa, Italy, and Spain.
  • And of course, the undisputed heavyweight champion: the Black Death. One of the worst pandemics ever, the Black Death killed anywhere between 75-200 million people, or 30-60% of the population of Europe. It was so severe that world populations did not recover until the 17th century. Once again working thorugh Yersinia Pestis, the Black Death moved incredibly quickly, as you can see below:

Magnus Bane and James Carstairs? ☺♥

OMG YES!!!!

Magnus Bane

  1. Magnus decided that he was never going to have a family, but somehow, in the 1950s, Ragnor Fell, Catarina Loss and Tessa Gray all wormed their way into his heart and head.  It both scared him and gratified him that he liked it.
  2. Magnus was planning to propose to Camille the night she didn’t come home in 1878.
  3. Alexander Lightwood was the only man to ever make Magnus feel insecure.

James Carstairs (MY BBY)

  1. After Jem and Tessa moved to Los Angeles, Jem forged a hesitant relationship with Emma Carstairs.  He told her about his family history and she came him for advice.  Eventually, Emma came to view him as a father figure, something that made Jem feel very honored.
  2. Jem attempted to re-established the Shanghai Institute in 2013, but the memories were too painful for him to stay.
  3. Jem wrote down one piece of violin music in his entire life.  It was three hours long and it was entitled Duìyú Wǒ De Tài Sha (For My Tessa).  In the piece, he played his entire life with Tessa - their courtship, his time in the Silent City, their marriage and his death.  He wrote the final notes two days before his death and played the piece in its entirety once, four hours before he died.  Tessa kept the sheet music for the rest of her life.
Plover Lovers, Bird Nerds, and Wildlife Fans Celebrate: Little Plover Making a Big Comeback

By Dan Elbert/USFWS Biologist

With the chill of fall in the air and the cheer of sports fans in the air, there is one more reason to celebrate this season – the tiny Western snowy plover is smashing population records in a big way.

Records crumble

Records began to crumble in January when 232 snowy plovers were counted on the Oregon coast during the annual Winter Window Survey; an increase of approximately 17 percent over the previous high count of 199 the previous year. 

Plover monitors from the Oregon Biodiversity Information Center observed the earliest hatch date (April 17) and fledging date (May 21) ever for the Oregon coast.  History has shown that when nests and broods are successful early in the breeding period, adults are able to attempt secondary and tertiary nests during the lengthy 6-month breeding period and rear multiple broods.  Consequently, productivity rates can sky-rocket under ideal conditions. 

Preliminary data indicate that more than 300 adult snowy plovers were present on the Oregon coast in 2014, approximately 350 nests were monitored, of which about 210 hatched (60% nest success rate).  Only 93 of 381 snowy plover nests hatched last year  (24% nest success rate).  Even more impressive than 210 nests hatching (another Oregon coast first by the way), were the 270 or more chicks that successfully fledged in 2014- shattering the previous record of 180 chicks that fledged in 2012.

The 2 Teenagers Who Run the Wildly Popular Twitter Feed @HistoryInPics

There is a new ubiquitous media brand on Twitter.

No, I’m not talking about Pierre Omidyar’s First Look Media or BuzzFeed or The Verge, or any other investor-backed startup. 

I’m talking about @HistoryInPics, which, as I discovered, is run by two teenagers: Xavier Di Petta, 17, who lives in a small Australian town two hours north of Melbourne, and Kyle Cameron, 19, a student in Hawaii.

They met hustling on YouTube when they were 13 and 15, respectively, and they’ve been doing social media things together (off and on) since. They’ve built YouTube accounts, making money off advertising. They created Facebook pages such as “Long romantic walks to the fridge,” which garnered more than 10 million Likes, and sold them off. More recently, Di Petta’s company, Swift Fox Labs, has hired a dozen employees, and can bring in, according to an Australian news story, 50,000 Australian dollars a month (or roughly 43,800 USD at current exchange rates). 

But @HistoryInPics may be the duo’s biggest creation. In the last three months, this account, which tweets photographs of the past with one-line descriptions, has added more than 500,000 followers to bring their total to 890,000 followers. (The account was only established in July of 2013.) If the trend line continues, they’ll hit a million followers next month.
