    Great list of names on their Biowalk of Fame, but I’ll highlight Dr. Charles Drew; Arlington, VA, native, who discovered how to separate plasma from red blood cells, and from whom I now have 2 degrees of separation thanks to my FS teammate [mention]Catedrew [/mention]who is his great-niece! Thanks to Dr. Drew for his life work and highest regards to his whole family
    This is so cool! I never knew that Uncle Charlie was immortalized here - I'll have to go find it. Yay!!

    Dr. Charles R. Drew -

    “Dr. Charles Richard Drew broke barriers in a racially divided America to become one of the most important scientists of the 20th century. His pioneering research and systematic developments in the use and preservation of blood plasma during World War II not only saved thousands of lives, but innovated the nation’s blood banking process and standardized procedures for long-term blood preservation and storage techniques adapted by the American Red Cross.

    Ironically, the Red Cross excluded African Americans from donating blood, making Drew himself ineligible to participate in the very program he established. That policy was later modified to accept donations from blacks, however the institution upheld racial segregation of blood, which throughout the war Drew openly criticized as “unscientific and insulting to African Americans.””

    From the American Chemical Society.
    Yay Uncle Charlie!

    This monument is dedicated to Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, a system of alternative medicine. Hahnemann was a 19th century German physician and chemist and is the first foreigner not associated with the American Revolution to be honored by sculpture in Washington.

    The monument could also be see as a reflection of the evolution of the perception of science. Now, homeopathy is seen by many as a pseudoscience (statements beliefs, or practices that claim to be both scientific and factual but are incompatible with the scientific method). But at the memorial's unveiling in 1900, the ceremony was attended by President McKinley and many medical professionals.

    There has actually been some talk about trying to have a Springing Saddles. The big issue has been that Freezing Saddles requires a whole lot of time and effort from volunteers, and I doubt many of them would be willing to start up again so soon after the last bout. However, if you felt like running a scavenger hunt, that could be done independently of points, and could just be run on this forum. I suspect that Henry could be induced to make it a sticky under General Discussion. That way, it would be for more than just me. And it wouldn't require all the volunteers to set up teams, run the back end, etc. I suspect there are others who would want to participate.

    This may not technically count, since it is a promo for a local ice rink, but you can't have Christmas without Frosty!!

    3/15/21 - Christmas Ornaments or Lights

    Coincidentally, I had noticed just a few days ago that the CVS in Woodley Park still had some reindeer and a giant snowflake adorning their storefront.
