Thousands of hurricane Katrina survivors from New Orleans are bussed to refuge at a Red Cross shelter in the Houston Astrodome.
This presentation introduces the topics of disaster mental health services, mental health surge capacity, and psychiatric first aid. This presentation's content is part of a non-credit, professional development training generated by JHSPH faculty and the Johns Hopkins Center for Public Health Preparedness. No one knows when exactly a natural calamity will occur so being prepared is definitely a must.
Autumn has descended in all its glory, but if you’re like us, you’re still making the most of the last of summer’s gifts: a handful of herbs fresh from the garden.
In addition to favorite herbs like bayleaf, catnip and mint are dozens of new plants much less familiar to modern gardeners, but which were commonly in use in gardens of the 17th and 18th centuries. Motorcycle innovation races ahead: Once this basic form was in place, the number of motorcycle manufacturers skyrocketed, with many small companies getting in on the action. Ford’s Model T gives more transportational bang for the buck: By 1911, some 150 makes of motorcycles had already been built in the United States, sales were buoyant, and the future seemed bright for the industry. It’s me or the bike!  The 1909 Pierce had been in pieces for nearly a century before being put back together for our Born to Ride exhibit. What a Knucklehead: The arrival of Harley-Davidson’s overhead-valve Big Twin inspired ecstasy among dealers. You can learn more fascinating “fun facts” in our Born to Ride exhibit, on view through October 31st.
The treehouse decking is made of ipe (EE-pay) wood, from a tropical tree also called poui or trumpet tree.
Despite some threatening weather the night before, the annual Heritage Auto Show went off without a hitch Saturday, July 9th, to the delight of more than 800 visitors. A Model T kit car based on Heritage’s 1915 Stutz Bearcat got a unique photo op, since the museum had brought the Stutz out on the field that day.
This hybrid in the Rose Man’s garden is called ‘Oranges and Lemons.’ Catmint, delphinium and petunias attract a host of bees and hummingbirds, while the aquasphere fountain provides a unique focal point for this garden by Michael P. The Police Gazette garden at the Art Museum has been reinvigorated with vibrant-colored, leafy container plantings, giving it the air of a placid oasis on even the hottest summer day.


Thanks to Mary LeBlanc Designs, Hoxie Landscaping and Brick Kiln Nursery for their beautiful reviving of the Police Gazette garden. Mary Jo (MJ) Davis has made a career of preserving the rare, the unique and the irreplaceable.
MJ gave workshop participants plenty of new ways to think about their own disaster prep.  How are objects in their museums protected from flooding, earthquakes (which have happened in New England!) or the water, wind and glass of a window broken during a hurricane? As the workshop attendees worked, they discovered that some objects were relatively undamaged and that others couldn’t be saved. If you haven’t seen it yet this season, the Maze Garden is looking more lush and verdant than ever thanks to a spring makeover by Maffei Landscaping of Mashpee, Massachusetts. Bradley, a NASA engineer, will discuss the importance of preparing and outlines a step-by-step process to creating an effective disaster preparedness plan. Bradley believes that while most of the time the world functions normally, there is always the potential for natural disaster that is sometimes very dangerous. Bradley’s books include the Handbook to Practical Disaster Preparedness for the Family, Disaster Preparedness for EMP Attacks and Solar Storms, and the Prepper’s Instruction Manual. A full version, including synchronized audio is available at no charge by visiting the Johns Hopkins Center for Public Health Preparedness (registration required).
With evocative names like bloodroot, lady’s bedstraw and feverfew hinting at their uses, the plants found in Heritage’s new herb garden would have been put to work in a variety of ways in colonial times. The collectors who lent us their motorcycles are full of fantastic anecdotes and tidbits about the histories of their bikes.
The merging of bicycle with motor seems to have occurred to multiple manufacturers in the 1880s. This new layout with the engine low and centrally located gave the machine much better balance. The unveiling of the “Knucklehead” caused such excitement that one Texas dealer shot the chandelier with joy.
Kevin describes this as a spectacular opportunity for his students, “the kind of project that would only come along once in two lifetimes.” We think they’re the kind of people who only come along once in two lifetimes! Digging the deep footings and setting the brackets while working on a steeply sloped hillside with concern for not damaging the surrounding vegetation was challenging.


Nearly a hundred fantastic vehicles turned up for the event, representing a century of American and European automotive history.
One committee member commented that it was a tough decision—there were just so many fine cars to choose from. Neath’s lovely spot near the History Museum, aim for a profusion of lush summer blooms that attract the bees and perfume the air.
He explains that this danger comes from the uncertainty of a complex ecosystem among other factors. 2016, the next National Seminar-Worskhop on Science Investigatory Projects will be held on April 22-24 at the Concourse Convention Center in Legazpi City, Albay. Roper of Roxbury, Massachusetts invented his own steam velocipede, which ran on a coal-fired boiler that sat between the wheels.
The current owner purchased the boxes of parts nearly 40 years ago but never fully reassembled it until this year. But eventually they came up with a winner, as did a group of automotive students from Cape Cod Technical School in Harwich who were judging for their own award.
The Wine and Cheese Buffet is up again in Old Swiss Inn, Somerset Hotel Makati, on May 18, Wednesday, at 6PM. Save the date! In recent years, the school has partnered with Heritage to work on some of the antique cars in the Automobile Collection.
It’s beneficial for both; the students gain practical experience and the museum’s cars get some TLC. Military miniatures, “Captain Michael Huffnagel’s Company of 8th Pennsylvania Line (1777),” by Norman & Lisl Cooke, c.
