Geniuses have it easy, right? They wake up and out pops the brilliance. Well, not really. And not if that genius is Charles Darwin, who's got lots to do and absolutely no desire to do it. Those days (like Oct 1., 1861) are days when Darwin decides he "hates everybody and everything."

The Fruits of the Earth (1911) by Edward J. Detmold (UK, 1883-1957)

By the age of 13 -- yes, 13! -- Edward J. Detmold had exhibits at the Royal Academy of Arts (London) and the Royal Institution of Painters in Water Colours (London).

"Pitanja nefunkcionisanja ekonomije, velike nezaposlenosti i javnog duga neće biti rešena bez celovite reforme države koja treba da počne novim ustavnim uređenjem kroz manji broj poslanika, ministara i činovnika u Vladi Srbije, smatra profesor ekonomije Miodrag Zec."

Srbija ima 250 poslanika u parlamentu na 7,2 miliona stanovnika. Holandija ima samo 150 poslanika na 16,8 miliona stanovnika.

Valjda je cirkus zabavniji kada je brojniji ;)

"Humans, they warn, seem to be developing digital brains with new circuits for skimming through the torrent of information online. This alternative way of reading is competing with traditional deep reading circuitry developed over several millennia."

Van Gogh Stunning Use Of Complimentary Colors
Title:  "Vase With Daisies And Anemones"
Painted In Paris In The Summer Of 1887

This oil on canvas by Van Gogh is rendered with beautiful  complimentary colors (colors that are opposites on the color wheel).  In this case the opposites are blue and orange, purple and yellow, and red and green.  This is known as a six tone chord or hexagon.

On The Shoulders of Giants

♀ A sepia print of an Indian woman, a Japanese woman and a woman from Syria, dated 1885. What do they have in common? Extraordinarily, each was the first licensed female medical doctor in their country of origin. They were trained at the Women's Medical College in Pennsylvania, the first of its kind in the country. This was a time before women had the right to vote. If they did attend college at all, it was at the risk of contracting "neuralgia, uterine disease, hysteria, and other derangements of the nervous system” (according to Harvard gynecologist Edward H. Clarke). 

An all-woman medical school was first proposed in 1846, supported by the Quakers and the feminist movement. Dr. Ellwood Harvey, one of the early teaching faculty, daringly smuggled out a slave, Ann Maria Weems, dressed as a male buggy driver, from right outside the White House. With his reward money, he bought his students a  papier maché dissection mannequin. Eventually, poverty forced him to quit teaching, but he still helped out with odd jobs. What a magnificent man!  

Fate and fortune were to buffet Ms. Joshi's life. Married at age 9 to a man 11 years older, her husband turned out to be surprisingly progressive. After she lost her first child at age 14, she vowed to render to her "poor suffering country women the true medical aid they so sadly stand in need of and which they would rather die than accept at the hands of a male physician". She was first offered a scholarship by a missionary on condition that she converted to Christianity. When she demurred, a wealthy socialite from New Jersey stepped in and financed her education. She is believed to be the first Hindu woman to set foot on American soil. I didn't arrive until 1983 ;)

Times were tough then. The fate of these three intrepid pioneers was a sad one. Joshi died of tuberculosis in India at the age of 21, without ever practicing. Fittingly, her husband sent her ashes back to America. Islambouli was not heard of again, likely because she was never allowed to practice in her home country. Although Okami rose to the position of head of gynecology at a Tokyo hospital, she resigned two years later when the Emperor of Japan refused to meet her because she was a woman. 

Times have changed. My own mother was married at the age of 13 to a man also 11 years her senior. My father recalls helping my mother with her geography homework in high school. She never did attend college, despite being a charismatic woman with quicksilver wit and efficiency. Little wonder then, when I was accepted into graduate school in the US, unmarried and 21 years young, my parents staunchly stood behind me against the dire predictions of friends and relatives ("She'll come back with a yellow haired American!" "Haven't you read Cosmopolitan magazine? They are all perverts there!"). Happily, I escaped perversion, earned my doctoral degree and even gained a supportive spouse of my own. In 2004, I became only the 103rd woman to be promoted to Professor in the 111-year history of the Johns Hopkins medical school, and the first in my department, the oldest Physiology department in the country. If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants

Vincent van Gogh's one of the most memorable paintings. There is also a couple standing at the bottom of the picture which most viewers miss out.

Trying to find a balance between cowardice and courage (someone else nicely pronounced this, but I think it reflects my life also)
Introduction
I enjoy in hiking and cycling. Since I don't watch TV I have much more time for reading. On goodreads.com I keep track of books I am reading.

On December 17, 2011, after 4 years, I permanently deleted account on Facebook social network, after I finally realized it's the greatest vanity fair and narcissistic place that I have seen on the internet. Currently I'm not thinking to go back there.
