In Shakespeare's Richard II, England is frequently referred to as a garden with its "sea walls" protecting it like a fortress. The caterpillars mentioned by the servant are a biblical reference to parasites that eat and destroy gardens. http://www.oup.com/Shakespeare?WT.mc_id=shakespeare-gplus #Shakespeare #metaphor #nature

"The Leopold story is all about the ripple effects of a man who lived dedicated to enjoying, studying, preserving, and conserving those things he deeply loved – 'things natural, wild, and free.'" #wildlife   #conservation  #nationalparks
“We may, without knowing it, be writing a new definition of what science is for,” said Aldo Leopold to the Wildlife Society in 1940. A moderate but still crisp April breeze was playing in my hair as the sun worked to melt the last bits of frost in the silt. Shoots of prairie grasses were popping up through the mud, past shell skeletons of river mussels and clams.

Chronic, unresolved stress, #burnout and compassion fatigue are a few of the issues many #nurses face every day. These ongoing concerns ultimately impact #patient care adversely and need to be addressed properly.
In an op-ed published in the New York Times titled “Why You Hate Work”, Schwartz and Porath highlighted Gallup data that revealed that only 30% of employees in the US and 13% across 142 countries feel engaged at work. Noting the high rate of burnout, they declared that for most of us, work is a depleting, dispiriting experience that is getting worse.

Contemplating #Einstein's #scientific achievements, from his theory of #gravity, to opening a path to the quantum world of the atom.
Einstein has had a good month. His prediction, that the fabric of space and time can support waves travelling at light-speed, was confirmed by the LIGO.

"Besides, it is not inconceivable that a mysterious foreign word (or name) met a similar native one. Such things happen. Jingo and by jingo may have more than one source." #Etymology  #words #idioms
It is the origin of idioms that holds out the greatest attraction to those who care about etymology. I have read with interest the comments on all the phrases but cannot add anything of substance to what I wrote in the posts. My purpose was to inspire an exchange of opinions rather than offer a solution. While researching by Jingo, I thought of the word jinn/ jinnee but left the evil spirit in the bottle.
