Glorious Glenstone: An Immersive Experience of Art in 230 Acres of Natural Beauty

Glorious Glenstone: An Immersive Experience of Art in 230 Acres of Natural BeautyGlenstone is the new museum in Potomac in Maryland they?ve built to display the superlative art they?ve acquired over the years. For a few years, the Raleses have provided a lovely, 9,000-square-foot gallery space designed by Charles Gwathmey to show a portion of their collection by artists I would call modern masters, mostly from the 1950s to today. Working with the architect Thomas Phifer and the firm PWP Landscape Architecture, the couple expanded the exhibition space to 59,000 square feet.

Targeting 'hidden pocket' for treatment of stroke and seizure

The ideal drug is one that only affects the exact cells and neurons it is designed to treat, without unwanted side effects. This concept is especially important when treating the delicate and complex human brain. Now, scientists at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory have revealed a mechanism that could lead to this kind of long-sought specificity for treatments of strokes and seizures.
