Today is National Learn About Butterflies Day

Today is National Learn About Butterflies Day

Observed annually, March 14th is National Learn About Butterflies Day. Spring and summer are just right around the corner, so it is a good time to take a few minutes and learn something new about butterflies and appreciate their beauty. Butterflies need our help to survive as they rely on flowers and other natural sources for survival. We can help them by planting more flowers. Did you know there are more than 20,000 types of butterflies worldwide?

Their wing spans can range from 1/2 inch to 11 inches. In their adult stage, butterflies can live from a week to nearly a year, depending on the species. Many butterflies migrate over long distances. Particularly famous migrations are those of the Monarch butterfly from Mexico to the northern USA and southern Canada, a distance of about 2500 to 3000 miles.

Today in History: World Premiere of #SwanLake in 1877

Today in History: World Premiere of #SwanLake in 1877

“Swan Lake” was Peter I. Tchaikovsky’s (1840-1893) first ballet composition. Apart from “Sleeping Beauty” (1890) and “The Nutcracker” (1892), it is considered today as perhaps the most important classical ballet. However, its first performance in Moscow in 1877 was met with harsh criticism by audiences and critics alike. Tchaikovsky was very disappointed by the failure of his first ballet and tried to find the cause in his music. For years, he intended to re-edit his work, but he never did. After Tchaikovsky’s death, Marius Petipa and Riccardo Driggo drastically reworked the ballet’s choreography. On February 17, 1894, the revised ballet premiered in St. Petersburg and was a huge success. Today, “Swan Lake” is considered to be Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece.

Today in History: Alexander Graham Bell born in 1847

Today in History: Alexander Graham Bell born in 1847

172 years ago today, the American scientist, inventor, and engineer was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. Bell studied at the University of Edinburgh. In 1871, he went to Boston to become a teacher for the deaf. Bell’s mother and wife were both deaf, which had a major influence on his work. From 1873 to 1877, he worked as a professor of speech physiology. His research on hearing and speech led him to experiment with hearing devices which culminated in the development of the telephone in 1876. His invention attracted a great deal of attention at the 1776 Philadelphia International Exhibition, but over the years, Bell was not much involved in the further development of the phone. It is said that that Bell refused to have a telephone in his study, feeling it was an intrusion on his work as a scientist. Bell died in 1822 at the age of 75.
