Scientists Rank World’s Most ‘Evolutionarily Distinct’ Birds
“Is a bird more worth saving from extinction if it is evolutionarily unique, as well as physically rare? That’s one challenging question raised by newly published research that factors together the distinct evolutionary history of the world’s bird species, with how healthy their population numbers and prospects for survival are in the present.”

Rare photo of an 8 year-old Helen Keller with her teacher Anne Sullivan. Taken in 1888, it is possibly the first photo of the two together. It was lost for 120 years, only rediscovered in March 2008
cobb__salad:



The image, released by the New England Historic Genealogical Society, was taken 120 years ago and shows an eight-year-old Keller holding the hand of Anne Sullivan, whose legacy is almost as important. She was the teacher who first taught Keller how to understand and articulate language. More important still for Keller scholars, the black and white photograph shows her holding in another hand a doll. The word “doll” was the first Keller ever spoke - the fruit of her lessons from Ms Sullivan, whose technique included spelling out words on the palm of the little girl’s hand.
The picture, apparently taken at Cape Cod in July 1888, was found in an album by Thaxter Spencer, 87, whose mother was a childhood friend of Keller. Mr Spencer donated the album and other items including diaries and letters to the genealogical society last June (2007). However, the group did not notice the particular photograph until now (March 2008).
