Emeritus Professor Leon van Schaik devised the concept for RMIT University’s first ceremonial mace and industrial designer Ian Wong, then a lecturer at RMIT, developed the design. As noted by the University’s Archivist, Michelle Novaco “the Mace was the result of a collaborative effort, with staff from industrial design, gold & silversmithing, sculpture, engineering, applied physics, and optical technology working on its production. Materials used include carbon fibre, optical fibres, computer chips, honeycomb aluminium, gold, titanium and crystal. Drawings show how the University’s distinctive pixel logo (that conveys a sense of being at the forefront of technology) was incorporated into the design of the top element of the mace.” RMIT was established in 1887 as The Working Men’s College; (women were admitted in 1888); in 1934 it adopted the name Melbourne Technical College; in 1954 the College was awarded Royal Patronage; in 1960 the name Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology was adopted; and in 1992 the Institute was granted University Status, and according to the tradition, a mace was commissioned to symbolise the University’s ethos and its institutional authority. The University’s first ceremonial mace superbly combines traditional craftsmanship with innovative technology.

경기 성남 태평동 78번길 <태평동886>유휴공간 (이 전에 상점이었던 공간)에 작은 사진관이 열립니다. 이 길은 지역주민들이 영장산으로 오르는 길목이기도 하고, 흔치 않은 육거리가 조성된 길이기도 합니다. 아파트 15층 정도 높이의 이 골목길에는 오래전 상점이었던 빈 공간이 여러 곳 있습니다. 작은 흔적들만이 그곳이 예전 상점이었다는 것을 짐작 할 수 있게 합니다. 프로젝트파니는 2018년 이 골목길의 어제와 오늘을 다양한 방식으로 기록 합니다. 단편적인 것에서 의미를 찾게 됩니다.

10/23/1856 — The Dessert 🍰
Stash up on milk 🥛 and loosen your belts 👖, kids. It’s Boston Cream Pie Day!
The year was 1856, and Boston’s historic @omniparkerhouse was but 1️⃣ year old. Founder Harvey D. Parker was still getting off the ground his vision of an elegant inn 🏨 that would host the political 🇺🇸, academic 📖, artistic 🎨, and athletic 🏆 giants of 19th and 20th century America.
Parker’s entrepreneurial spirit extended to the hotel kitchen 🍽, where today in ‘56, Armenian-French chef M. Sanzian 👨🏽🍳 first crafted his “Chocolate Cream Pie”. A brilliant concoction of French 🇫🇷 butter sponge cake filled with crème pâtissière (an egg-thickened custard 🍳), the dessert distinguished itself with Sanzian’s ground-breaking chocolate icing 🍫. By that point, chocolate had been used mainly for drinks🥤and puddings 🍮.
The culinary world responded with a collective “Duh!” 🤯 and Sanzian’s confection became an instant hit 🎯. Bakeries started mimicking it, and a century later, the consumer could buy “Boston Cream Pie” as a Betty Crocker boxed mix #commercial . Then, in 1996, the Boston Cream Pie became the #official dessert of Massachusetts 📜
A few more key facts –
🎂 Despite its name, Boston Cream “Pie” is technically a cake
🍩 Boston Cream Pie paved the way for the inevitable Boston Cream Doughnut — which was named the official doughnut of Massachusetts in 2003
👩🏻🍳 In 2010, culinary students at @snhu set the record for the world’s biggest Boston Cream Pie. It measured in at 10 feet wide and 1.5 feet high, and it weighed over 1 ton 🤤
So, if you ever wanted an excuse to eat an unconscionable amount of custard, October 23rd is it, Boston. Carpe diem and make sure you have some built-in nap time for afterward 💤
Quel fascinant document. Un petit regard par le trou de la serrure du Québec d'avant la révolution sexuelle.
À l'aveuglette, sans savoir que c'est un témoignage historique, j'aurais juré que c'est un roman de François Blais, vu la forme épistolaire et l'agilité de la plume de son botaniste d'auteur. Pas de farces.
Last month, the StoryCorps Mobile Tour spent four weeks preserving the voices and stories of Charleston, #WestVirginia in partnership with @wvpublic, culminating in an evening of listening and sharing with the community. Here's a look at the work of our Mobile team. 🚌
Another remarkable piece of death history from The Metropolitan Museum of Art. This mourning corsage dates from 1865 and honours Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States. .
From the Met's website: "About the time of Abraham Lincoln’s long funeral tour, April 21 to May 3, 1865, enterprising vendors produced mourning corsages featuring black silk ribbons adorned with small circular photographs of the president. The likeness is a tintype copy of a portrait from February 9, 1864, that Anthony Berger had made of President Lincoln in Mathew B. Brady’s Washington gallery. The corsage would have been worn on one’s lapel and then carefully preserved as a memento mori of the war’s final casualty." .
Although this item is not currently on display, it can still be viewed online at https://metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/301949
There's also a fantastic book by Thomas J. Craughwell titled, "Stealing Lincoln's Body", and a documentary of the same name. Definitely worth a look, and a fascinating story that we're hoping to post about later.
