Turkey

TBT = There Be Turkey!

It's almost turkey time! That has us browsing through all of the great photos on jocohistory.org

We just had to share this 1966 photo from the Wasiner family Thanksgiving. One child keeps her eyes on the bird. Another child keeps her eye on the birdwatcher. The others? Eyes forward for this wonderful photograph. Everyone has their priorities.

For even more history be sure to follow our hashtag on Twitter.

eBook

Changes to our eLibraryChanges to our eLibrary

Macmillan Publishing has recently made changes to its library eBook lending policies. We know our patrons may wonder what this is all about and how it will impact them.

In summary, Macmillan Publishing will be withholding library eBook sales for 8 weeks after the book's release date. With this in mind, you may find eBooks and eAudiobooks on retail websites like Amazon 8 weeks before they are available for libraries to purchase. This will not impact print books and CD audiobooks, which will still be available on the day of their release.

For more information or if you have any questions, please contact us.

Fly brain

Fruit Flies and Brain Disease

This session presents current research about “Neuronal-Glial Interactions in a Drosophila Model of Tauopathy.” Yes, it’s as cool as it sounds. Dr. Kenneth Colodner is a neuroscientist researching how communication between cell types in the human brain is disrupted in neuro-degenerative diseases. His lab is particularly focused on “tau protein toxicity in the context of tauopathies.” Colodner and his colleagues are genetically altering common fruit flies – drosophila melanogaster – to overexpress the human tau protein in their brains. This talk will highlight Colodner’s current studies utilizing genetic, pharmacological and behavioral approaches to understand how tau disrupts cell signaling in the fly brain. Such studies may help identify novel, therapeutic targets for these disorders.

Presented by the Mount Holyoke Kansas City Alumnae Club, Mount Holyoke College and Johnson County Library Foundation.
