On this day in history...

...24 November, 1859 Charles Darwin published "On the Origin of Species", and our view and understanding of Biology was changed.  The full title for the first edition (which sold out), was "On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life"

It is amazing to read the first edition now, as one soon realises what a genius Darwin was, and how far ahead of his time he was.  Darwin used information that he had gathered on the HMS Beagle, during its long voyage of exploration in the 1830's.  One has to remember that he managed to put together all the facts without a knowledge of genes, or even a fossil record.  All that came later, which reinforced his work.

Your help needed again - Red Cross Childrens Hospital

Posted by Dissol in Red Cross Childrens Hospital

Dissol

This one is easy; costs you nothing!!  The Cape Town Red Cross Childrens Unit are trying to raise funds, and create awareness.  You may have heard about it on local radio.  They need a minimum of 100,000 hits on their website to secure the funding. 
All you need to do is visit...but take a bit of time to read what these wonderful people do...it is important...I really hope that no one here ever has to use their expertise...but it is good to know it is there, if you ever do need it.
