“Mummy No. 30007, currently residing at the American Museum of Natural History, is a showstopper. She’s known as the Gilded Lady, for good reason: Her coffin, intricately decorated with linen, a golden headdress and facial features, has an air of divinity. She’s so well preserved that she looks exactly how the people of her time hoped she would appear for eternity. To contemporary scientists, however, it’s what they don’t see that is equally fascinating: Who was this ancient woman, and what did she look like when she was alive?” Read more about Mummies via The New York Times.

Libraries pursue alternative delivery routes after licence negotiations break down.

Thousands of scientists in Germany, Peru and Taiwan are preparing for a new year without online access to journals from the Dutch publishing giant Elsevier. Contract negotiations in both Germany and Taiwan broke down in December, while Peru’s government has cut off funding for a licence.

“It’s very unpleasant,” says Horst Hippler, spokesperson for the DEAL consortium of state-funded universities and research organizations, which is overseeing negotiations in Germany. “But we just cannot accept what Elsevier has proposed so far.”

Guys, my country, Peru, is going through a difficult time right now. I haven’t seen much in international media so that’s why I’m sharing this with you. My city, Trujillo, along with many other cities is Peru are suffering from El Niño phenomenon. From Lima in the center all the way to Ecuador are been hit by heavy rain… Many cities are flooded… We’ve had three mudslides in my city today. The images from other areas are way worse. People has died drowned and in accidents trying to get home.. farmers have lost everything, people has no water and electricity in many areas even the capital Lima has little to no water. I’ve seen some embassies here helping otherwise I haven’t seen much coverage of this even though it has been happening for days now. Peruvians are working together to get through this and I’m sure we will come out stronger from this. Keep us in your prayers.
