Two drawn snapshots from the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle, Paris.

Yesterday I have spent the morning in the  Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle in Paris.

I went there with my students, looking for wolves..

while they were busy hunting them amongst the exhibits, I’ve enjoyed my own inky hunt.

The Scottish referendum

The Scottish referendum

A great sense of nervousness is engulfing the British isles; the northern most important member of the union seem to no longer be interested in this partnership.

On September 18th, the Scots will be invited to vote in a referendum on their national identity.

Tim Harford, in his FT column, (here) covered some of possible implications that may come a result of this historical referendum.
